Welcome to my blog, and this week's WIPITUP blog post!
Rachel's Journey, my second book, is due for release in a month and I'm SO EXCITED!! Because I'm a newbie I'm uber-enthusiastic about life in general at the moment - the excitement of an impending book release is spreading to all aspects of my life. But my kids are happy, as it means I'm not as grumpy as usual when they have very selective hearing :) All you experienced authors are probably laughing at me right now, thinking 'what a dork ... it's not that big of a deal!' but it still is, to me. One day, I'll probably not get quite as excited, I'll get old and jaded and a new book will just be a 'meh ... whatever ... another one done' but to be honest, I hope that doesn't ever happen because it might mean I've lost my love for writing. And I can't imagine that.
Anyway, enough aimless waffling. Onto this week's excerpt:
“Ow!” Rachel squealed, twisting out of his grasp, jumping around and trying to rub the sting out of her behind.
James just laughed as he returned the spatula to its home. “Don’t be a girl. I bet you barely even felt anything through your jeans, I didn’t hit you very hard!”
“It felt hard to me!” Rachel protested, quickly retrieving her mug from the sink and stacking it tidily in the dishwasher next to the one James had used, before he was tempted to whack her again, to show her what ‘hard’ actually felt like.
“Pfft …” James scoffed. “That was only soft. As I’ve already told you, if you be a brat, I will punish you. And next time, I will actually punish you, not just play.” Despite his playful expression, there was a threatening tone to James’ voice and Rachel heard it.
“Yes sir,” she saluted him cheekily.
This is just one of the spunky cowboys that inspired James:
