Weekend Writing Warriors #119!

Happy Sunday, my dears! Welcome back to Crazytown! ;) I'll be sharing more from Adventures in Online Dating today, plus, I have some good news too! 

But first, here's the 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:

Against her better judgement she turned to him, opening herself up to further conversation. Mystery Man took a sip of his drink, his dark eyes locking on hers over the rim of his mug.
            “Is that a cappuccino?” Sydney asked, unable to bite back the moan that followed.
            He lowered his mug and nodded.
            “God, I would kill for one of those.”
            “I’d be happy to buy you one, but you’d have to keep the moaning to a minimum so your...friend doesn’t get the wrong idea.”
            “My date, you mean.”  
            “Sure.” 

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

So, ready for the good news? Online Mating, the spiced up, Charlie-centered version of this story just went live again on SilkWords with its third installment! And guess what? You get to vote on how the story ends! Charlie the clown needs your love! ;) 




Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead, and thank you, as always, for your support! :)
