Weekend Writing Warriors 9/29/13 #WeWriWa

I’m continuing on with my soon-to-be-released women’s fiction novel, The Lone Wolf, out December 2nd from Evolved Publishing.

After her husband’s infidelities are revealed, Kasey Sanford just wants to rediscover who she is. After an abusive childhood and years as a career soldier, Andrew Adams just wants someone to tell him that he’s doing the right thing with his life. When their paths cross, Kasey and Andrew embark on a tumultuous journey that demonstrates just what they’re willing to do to save the ones they love.

Someone slipped Kasey some pictures of her husband David in bed with another woman. She had all afternoon to freak out, and last week she confronted him about them when he got home from work.

“I never meant to hurt you. She was there, and I was stressed, lonely, I guess. She provided an outlet; I don’t know. She didn’t mean anything though, because I love you and only you.”

“Who is she?” I asked, my voice still cold, my fists clenched, fingernails cutting into my palms.

“The one in the pictures? She was—”

“As opposed to who, the one taking them?” I pounced on his choice of words; after years as a lawyer’s wife, I’d learned the importance of paying attention to the nuances of someone’s speech. “What do you mean, the one in the pictures – there were more?”

  1. She’s kept her cool in the worst of circumstances and who took the pictures? Excellent writing. Thank you.

  2. “The one in the pictures?”

    Heh. Ooops.

    Very well written, full of emotion and intrigue – nicely done!

  3. Poor thing. I’m angry right there with her! Jerk!

  4. Love that she didn’t let him get away with that slip. I’m definitely interested in how this plays out. Plus I got curious last week about who took the photos, and now even more so 😀

  5. Oh good point about the photo taker – your heroine has a really sharp mind, even under duress! Excellent excerpt!

  6. This story has stuck in my head and I love that your female lead is on her toes! Well done with your eights!

  7. Good for her catching that slip! My goodness, I hope her years as a lawyers wife help her hand him his rear in the divorce!

  8. I’ve never understood how a ‘it meant nothing’ argument is supposed to make things better. Hope she gets someone better than him.

  9. Oh man! He tripped all over that one! Great 8!

  10. I think he just dug himself in deeper.

  11. I can understand her anger. This definitely looks like a wonderful book. Thanks for sharing your 8.

  12. Yikes! She’s married to one slippery guy. Good luck to her.
