Friday's Fractured Features...

Today for your fractured features, I've decided that its about time I give you another teaser from my current WIP (Work in Progress) Just Another Player:

... While sitting there, uneasily looking around, the hair at the nape of her neck stood on end; she could feel eyes were watching her.



Ugly fear coursed down her spine.

Suzanna jerked her head around, in time to see a man duck behind a pillar.

Heart racing, perspiration beading up under her nose and at her spine, Suzanna sat with her purse and packages held tightly to her chest, ready to leap up and run.

Thump, thump; her heart pounded in her chest.

Terrified now, Suzanna sat looking toward the pillar where having last seen the man duck. Feeling something brush against her arm, Suzanna jumped up and knocked into a woman trying to get passed her.

“Oh, I’m so sorry. I didn’t see you.” Suzanna apologized.

“Obviously not; you have your chair sticking clear in the isle; no one can get past you.” The woman said while pushing past Suzanna and muttering: “These young people think they own the blasted mall...” The woman went off shaking her head and mumbling her egocentric chatter.
I hope you've enjoyed the sample of my story. Have a great day!

Wacky Wednesday...

Wow its already Wacky Wednesday and I haven't posted on here for a month. As you can see I've changed my look from the Christmas theme to one of poster boards and writing. :O)
Today hasn't been so wacky so I won't attempt to rhyme this post.
In fact I've spent the day writing and working on blog and fb changes and clearing out some way overdue e-mails. AND giving my husband a well overdue haircut. See this is what happens when you're a licensed Beautician... you get to cut the hair of your family... whether you're retired or not.  :O)
This week I've spent a lot of time working on my Albert Goes Camping children's book. Hopefully I will get that one figured out and will be able to get it published soon... wish me luck! In the meantime I'm also working on my Novel Just Another Player trying to get the edit finished to the point I will be ready for some Beta Readers to take a look at it.
My brave act... I signed up to do a pitch at our upcoming ANWA Conference. Yikes!!!
Okay, I've got to get back to my Novel so I'll be ready for said pitch.
