Sundae With Nuts #1
I finally decided on my Sunday blog title. My query on Facebook didn’t work at all – not getting ONE response on the options I gave out to everyone. The names must have been pretty bad! So I picked an entirely new one on my own. It doesn’t sound very romantic, and as a writer of the romance genre some may question why I chose SUNDAE WITH NUTS. Other than the fun play on words (as writer’s do), it has more meaning than that. My parents have owned and run an ice cream shop for 36 years now. I grew up scooping ice cream, cutting up candy and stocking shelves. I stopped working for them 20 years ago, but that wee ice cream shop still stays dear to my heart, and a hot-fudge sundae with nuts is my favorite. No whip cream, no cherry, just vanilla, fudge and chopped nuts.
For my very first installment of SUNDAE WITH NUTS, I am proud to be a part of Sara Walter Ellwood’s (a fellow Lyrical sister) Sneak Peek Sunday, a six-paragraph snippet from either a published book or a WIP. I love this concept, and by the look of her blog there is almost 50 of us signed up! As always, I’d love for you to comment, but since I have such issues with spam, your comment will go through moderation before it appears. But please feel free to say anything ya like!
Since I have already given followers on this blog the first chapter of WATERSHED (see blog history), I have chosen for Sneak Peek Sunday six paragraphs from “the morning after”, when Gray and Maggie still resonate from the passion that has built between them. I hope you enjoy.
