Getting down to writerly business. It's Sunday which means the Weekend Writing Warriors blog hop. The WeWriWa hop provides writers with an excellent opportunity to showcase thier work, and gives readers a chance to explore some books they might not find through other channels.
Last fall I took advantage to participate with a group that put together an amazing group of Georgian/Regency short stories that are connected through "Masqueradors" a fictional chocolate house in Bath, England. My contribution is Pig in a Poke, a story I found challenging to write, though
Today's Pig in a Poke snippet picks up towards the start of the story and immediately follows the snippet I posted last week.
What did Sebastian want with him? They weren’t close, years had passed since last they spoke, so what possible reason could there be for this sudden need to meet?
And why Masqueraders, The popular chocolate house wasn’t the type of place Sebastian frequented.
Simon tore off a corner of the paper and rolled the scrap between his thumb and index finger. He was torn. On one hand, he wanted to ignore Sebastian’s missive. All of his childhood memories consisted of his older brothers ordering him about. When he’d left home, he swore he’d never do their bidding again.
The Chocolate House - All for Love - Anthology: "Masqueraders" is available in both e-book form and paperback via Amazon. The proceeds are going to the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, London. Learn more at the official The Chocolate House Facebook page!
