Weekend Writing Warriors #87!

Hello again, hello! I have some exciting news to share! Y'know that story I've been sharing as of late called Adventures in Online Dating? Welllll, it's gonna be published! But not in its exact form. In a totally alternate version with the same sort of concept. lol. It shall be called...Online Mating! :D Just so you know, I've finished Adventures and I plan to continue sharing excerpts from it for your reading pleasure. Consider it a free read. ;)

Here's a blurb: After too many failed relationships, too many shots of tequila, and too many not-so-gentle nudges from her best friend, Sydney Montrose joins an online dating site in hopes of finding THE ONE. During her adventures, she crosses paths with a professional gamer who lives with his parents, a sweet and sarcastic parking enforcement officer, a flirty barista, a mystery man, a touchy-feely former felon, and a clown. Which one will she choose? Well, that's all entirely up to you! :-D

And here's an excerpt, continuing from where we left off: 


  “Okay, but I’m telling you, the rest of his pics are of him fully-clothed. Not that his clothes don’t reveal the treasures hidden beneath, but—”
            “Gimme that.” Grace yanked the laptop out of her hands and flipped through the series of pictures with her tongue hanging out of her mouth.
            “Stop drooling on my laptop.”
            Grace swiped at her chin. “All right, let’s read about Joe.” She clicked on his bio and her brow wrinkled in confusion. “Why does it say ‘employed’ under occupation?”

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors! 

It's been an exciting week around these parts! I got the new publishing contract, had a spectacular teaching interview, and made it to stage four on my application to Harvard's Graduate School! Just for kicks. :D Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead!!

  7. LOL employed could mean a lot of things. Does make a girl wonder why not put his job down? A bit of mystery can be intriguing. Fun, can't wait to see what happens next.

  9. That is a very vague answer--even more than some of the others mentioned. I wonder what his "employment" is?
