The Romance Troupe Blog Hop-Day 2

TRT Blog Hop Button copy

Harlie is giving away a copy (in your choice of format) of The Couple.  Please leave a comment and email address to win.  All this week, I will be sharing snippets of two WIP’s that I have going.  One is for my editor pitch at my chapter’s writer’s conference and the second one is for a contest.  Try to guess the contest and I will throw in a $5 GC.  So basically there are two contests for my blog.  :)  Good luck.

A little bit about the Romance Troupe.  Krystal Shannon thought it would be a great idea to form a group of writers, published and unpublished, to help each other, push each other and form a band of ladies that will take over the world.  Here’s a list of the fabulous ladies that I’m with now:  Krystal Shannon, April London, Liberty Ann Ireland, Angela Rose, Susan D. Taylor, Lynn Myshe Joseph, Natalie Gibson, Lynda Kaye Frazier, Susan B. Anna, Jinni James, Kerry Adrenne, Dariel Raye and Suzan Tisdale.  At the bottom of the post is the link to visit the participating authors and their posts.  Happy reading!

Waiting on Sunday Excerpt:

Please forgive NOT EDITED

Prologue-Waiting on Friday Night

Jack Moore finally decided that enough was enough.  His old body just couldn’t take it anymore.  Cancer had finally taken a toll on him and God decided that it was time.  He knew in his mind that it was time, too.  He would see his parents and his beloved wife, Linda after ten long years.

Jack’s veterinarian practice was successful and he knew that Kevin McCloud would take care of his patients.  Inviting Kevin to intern with him had been the best decision he made, and he knew that Kevin would do well for himself and deliver the best care to the county.  Kevin was a fine veterinarian and an even better surgical vet than Jack.  Kevin was young and enthusiastic about animals and it helped that he was up on the new surgical procedures.  Kevin would also continue doing rounds to the outlaying ranches and farms that couldn’t get into town for their routine veterinarian care.  Now what about Forrest?

Forrest Danielson grew up to be a fine young man.  Steadfast, loyal and willing to lend a hand to anyone that needed it.  Forrest was also his friend.  When Jack got sick, Forrest continued to go on rounds with Kevin and lend a hand.  Whatever the farmer or rancher needed, Forrest personally would deliver it that day.  He was the unofficial third in the practice.  With his co-ownership of the feed store with his father, Jack knew Forrest would be okay.  What worried Jack was Forrest’s personal life.  Jack had seen Forrest through his marriage, his divorce, and then discovered Forrest wanted a woman that would love him and the town in which he grew up.

Jack knew just the woman for him but Forrest had been too blind to see that his niece, Donna, was that woman.  Donna had been in love with Forrest since they were teenagers.  When Jack got sick, he decided to make Donna his estate beneficiary instead of his three grown children.  He knew it was for the best for everyone involved.  Playing matchmaker from the grave wasn’t going to be easy but Jack knew that Forrest and Donna would find their way towards each other.

Like it?  I hope so because this is what I’m pitching in less than two weeks.  If I sell Forrest’s and Donna’s story, Kevin’s story is next…
