Weekend Writing Warrior 8/2/15 #8Sunday

LW coverHappy August! This month I’ll be posting from my debut women’s fiction novel, The Lone Wolf, which is on sale at Amazon for just $.99 this week.

When Kasey’s marriage falls apart, she turns to Andrew, a soldier she just met, for help. But their friendship pulls up a past he’d rather avoid. Can Kasey save Andrew from himself while saving her marriage too?

In this scene, Andrew is describing the first time he saw Kasey. He was at a bookstore cafe and she was looking in the window from the sidewalk.

“So I saw her in front of the window, looking at a robot display they’d built.” I paused, smiling at the image of her, then continued, “And I looked at her, just kind of taking her all in. She looked down real quick, like she’d been caught doing something she shouldn’t. And then she looked back at me, just as quick, as if saying, ‘Screw it, I’ll do what I want.’ I realized at that moment she was real strong. She had this inner core of steel, but she was so easy to bruise before you got there.” My voice caught in my throat. “I didn’t mean to bruise her.”

  1. Ed, your snippet is so real. It paints a picture the reader could walk righ into.

  2. Nice little description of how they met and the references to the bruising etc make me worry about both of them…so I’d keep reading for sure. Great snippet!

  3. Lovely description. I’m curious to find out how he bruised her.
