Weekend Writing Warriors #19!

Hellooooooo! Happy Father's Day to all the fabulous dads out there, my own included! My daddy is my partner in crime. We have secret handshakes, finger snapping wars, we take dishwasher steam baths, and we dance while the washing machine is in its spin cycle. Basically, we're two peas in a very bizarre pod, and we're pretty proud of it. :D

Today I'm going to share another snippet from my mime/clown love story, All Action, No Talk, featured in The Wedding Day Collection (which is now available!) Links to follow.

She gasped but she didn’t pull away. She felt herself sinking more into his warmth, into the safety of the familiar. Tilting her head, she murmured into his ear, “Object.”
“What?”
They met eyes. “I need you to object.”
“But that means I’ll have to…in front of everyone.”
“I love the sound of your voice,” she admitted.



Here's the blurb: 

Alice Moore is a clown . . . in love with a mime.

Her parents have never approved of her circus-oriented lifestyle and in effort to deter her from wasting her life clowning around, they set her up with family friend, Grant Humphrey. A practical man. A businessman. And the last man on earth she wants to marry, but here she is, marching down the aisle toward him.

Alex Holiday is a mime . . . in love with a clown.

He’s silently followed Alice from venue to venue on the circus circuit, working alongside her, worshiping her in secret. He’s never been able to tell her how he feels . . . until now. When he catches wind of the upcoming wedding, he vows to put a stop to it. But will his objection be too late?

You want a copy? I'm giving one away to a lucky participant today! As for the rest of you, check out Amazon or the Turquoise Morning Press bookstore! :) Oh, and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors too! Have a wonderful Sunday, my friends!

    1. Well, maybe for laughs, but mostly because she doesn't wanna marry the fella she's marrying. ;)

  2. So will he just talk in front of every one for her, or just take her away right here, right now?
