It’s the weekend, and that means it’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors, a blog hop for writers. Check out the site for more interesting snippets from all genres. Here’s a tiny excerpt from my novel, Hot Shade, a New Adult-Romantic Suspense which will be released by Boroughs Publishing Group on Sept. 30.

The kiss shocked Skylar. Slammed her senses. It was all blazing urgency, and it surprised her how soon she wanted to surrender to him. She shifted her head away from his. Her gaze drifted down and she was fascinated by the hard surface of Luca’s chest muscles against the softness of the water that surrounded them.

Trying to catch her breath, she licked her lips. Guilt over kissing a potential source stung her sensible journalist self.

“You’re not going to answer my question, are you?” she whispered.

With half-lidded eyes, he shook his head slowly and kissed her again.

A quick update from the fiction front

I’m ecstatic to report that I’ve signed with literary agent Amanda Leuck of Spencerhill Associates. Hopefully soon, I will have good news to report about my debut novel, Uncovered. It’s a New Adult-romantic suspense story about a young reporter who meets a sexy and mysterious Italian man while covering a plane crash.

Writing fiction, securing an agent and trying to get published is a new and exciting journey for me. I’m discovering that it requires a lot of patience. It’s totally unlike journalism, especially wire-service journalism, where all decisions happen so crazy fast.
