Hi! After nearly a month away, I'm back with a snippet for the Weekend Writing Warriors (WeWriWa) and Sunday Snippet blog hop. The snippet I'm posting comes from my Georgian era romance novella, Snowflakes & Beeswax. I hope you like it!
Oliver nearly stabbed her.
Madelyn was buried under so much hay only her face and a few patches of her red cloak exposed. It was too late to stop the downward movement of the fork. At the last moment he changed the angle of the pitchfork thrust and sent the tines deep in to the stack well away from Madelyn’s skin. He swallowed and shoved his shaking hands into his pocket. Damning images flashed through his mind. If his reflexes were slower, if she was covered with more hay, if he hadn’t looked she’d be severely injured right now. He sucked in a deep breath and focused on the immediate problem.
I originally wrote Snowflakes & Beeswax for an anthology. After it was rejected, I cleaned it up and decided to self-publish. This kisses-only novella is about 21,000 words long. Both the paperback and ebook versions are currently available from Amazon.
