#WeWriWa Snippet for August 9 2015

Holy Cow! It's been a long time since I participated in the WeWriWa. This summer has been so busy I wasn't confident I would have enough time to jump to other participant's blogs and read their snippets.

For anyone who might not be familiar with the WeWriWa blog hop, it's pretty simple. There's just WeWriWa list, and they have to post a limited amount of sentences, no more than 10, on thier blog. See what I mean! All things should be so easy!

I'm jumping back in with Pig-in-a-Poke, a short story I wrote for The Chocolate House-All for Love-Anthology. This snippet is the first scene told from heroine, Letty's, point of view.



“You've made a mistake.” Letty Malleson tugged at the edges of her damp cloak, over lapping one over the other in an attempt to shield herself from the brisk wind and frosty air. She narrowed her eyes at the numbskull livestock broker standing before her and resisted the urge to stomp on his foot. “How do you plan to correct the error?”
Nathaniel Brice crossed his arms over his barrel chest and blew out an impatient breath. “All the information is in place and I assure you, it’s accurate.”
     “No. Impossible.”

The Chocolate House-All for Love-Anthology is a collection of 6 different historical short stories that were written by 6 different authors. The stories are connected by The Masqueraders Chocolate House which is located in Bath. The book is currently available via Amazon. All proceeds go to charity. Feel free to download your copy today!
