Snowflakes & Beeswax for #WeWriWa Snippet 12/22/13

Happy Holidays!

I hope this time of year finds everyone in good health, high spirits, and surrounded by love!

This week, for my WeWriWa/Sunday Snippet post I'm sharing the start of one of my favorite
scenes from Snowflakes & Beeswax. Not only is it my favorite scene, but it's also the first scene I wrote. Wow, that feels like a long time ago! 

Several talented writers are participating in this week's WeWriWa. You owe it to yourself to check out the snippet's they've posted on their blog.


“Oh, then what do you-” Before she could finish the sentence, Oliver's mouth covered hers, swallowing her words and wiping her mind of thought. 
The world turned upside down. The kiss might have lasted the length of a heartbeat or half a lifetime she wasn't sure, and she didn't care.  
Oliver ended it. His hands cupped her elbows and he straightened, pulling away slowly and stared down at herQuestions and emotions danced in the mossy green depths of his own eyes but Madelyn couldn't begin to sort them. 
One kiss changed everything.  


If you liked this snippet, feel free to head over to Amazon and pick up a copy of the paperback or download the ebook to your Kindle!  


Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hooray! Finally!

    With a first-written scene like this, no wonder you wanted to fill in the rest of the book! :) So sweet!

    1. It did help, especially since it was smack in the middle of the story so I was able to write towards it as opposed to crossing my fingers and hoping the story went in the right direction.

  6. Oh, goosebumps, Jess! Your scene epitomizes what it feels like to fall over the edge, to become hopelessly confused by the beginning of love. Nice!

  11. Bet she doesn't feel threatened by him at that moment.

  12. awww, just beautiful, Jess. Not even a nitpick from me, lol! I don't read much romance but what I really like about this scene is Madelyn's reaction. She's a sweet girl, it's easy to see why Oliver is so attached to her, and you portray her innocence so wonderfully. Can't wait to see more of this.

    1. Thanks Marcia. I'm glad you're enjoying it, especially since it's not the type of story you usually read. I didn't intend for the characters to be as innocent and sweet as they are, but now that all is said and done, I'm really glad they did.

  15. Oh man, this is awesome! Loved the final line, but this line really got me too: The kiss might have lasted the length of a heartbeat or half a lifetime she wasn't sure, and she didn't care.

    Now I'm all warm and tingly inside. :D Wonderful snippet!
