#snippetsunday~~Incoming hotness!

Hi,Y’all! It’s time for another Snippet Sunday. This week’s plans all went to the proverbial hell in a handbasket. I only got one scene worked through. I had all sorts of family and business stuff come up. The business one I may rant about later this week.  But I did get a little and would like you to meet TJ my sexy but young leading man and his best friend Simon.

Remember this is still a draft. It has not  seen professional eyes so please be easy on me…though if you see any big issues I would you to bring it to my attention. Just please be polite about it.

Chapter one~~ TJ

The ride to Bloomville Iowa seemed to take forever. After school was out, Simon  Beckner(do I need his last name here?Or let coach introduce him, later on, > invited me to go home with him. Not only has he been my roommate and best friend for the past three years, but he is also like a brother. I don’t know what I would do without him. His family treats me as one of their own. It was nice spending a week at Virginia Beach in their summer home, but man did it make for a long ride back to Iowa.

  I jumped at the chance when Rick  Davidson,  Head Coach of the Edenfield Eagles, called with the offer to stay on a hobby farm if I would donate a couple of hours a day to some farm chores. Finding out our host had horses, I nearly screamed in extasy. I think I scared Simon half to death when I got that call. Not only do I get to play baseball in a prospect league with an opportunity of draft, I finally get to work on a real farm.  It’s like a double dream come true.

 Later that day Simon got the same offer. I was overjoyed. Playing ball, working with horses and my best friend. I couldn’t ask for more.  There is supposed to be a total of six of us staying at the same farm. Having so many men in one place could be interesting.

So what do you think about my leading man TJ and his best buddy? Do you like switching views or is it too confusing?

Snippet Sunday ~~ Head Shrinkin~~nope this isn’t paranormal!

Snippet Sunday

Hi, Y’all! It’s time for Snippet Sunday again. It’s February and what better time for a sweet contemporary romance? Last week  I Introduced Gypsy Rose’s mom and more than one decision Gypsy Rose needs to make. This week Frank Is visiting he Therapist to figure a way out of his accidental commitment to a  date with Gypsy Rose. I know today is Valentine’s Day but my poor couple hasn’tt made it to that first date yet so this little ditty will have to do! I hope you enjoy!

This is a rough draft and the only eyes on it has been mine… so remember this is a diamond in the rough please be kind.

Sweet Gypsy Rose copyright 2014

“Hello Lamarr.” He doesn’t like being called Dr Jackson. I think its because a fist name basis is less intimidating to us crazies. I mean his clients.
“How has your week been?” He studies me closely.The pen begins scribbling a few words, then he turns his gaze back on me.
“Uneventful until today.”
“What made today different.”
“Gypsy Rose asked me out and I said yes.” I blurted.
His eyes grew wide as silence echoed off the pristine walls.I sat waiting for him to say something. Anything. I guess he was waiting for me to say more. Or he choked on his tongue and couldn’t speak.
“I am sorry. I never saw that coming.” He takes a long drink of what he makes us think is water. I sometimes wonder if its Vodka or Gin.
I’m hurt that he finds it so shocking Gypsy Rose would ask me out. But then again I had the same reaction when she did.
“I think its great progress that you are making.”
Now its my turn to look surprised.
“Progress?”
“Yes. That you are planning to go out with Gypsy Rose.”
“Oh no! I need you to help me figure how to get out of this! It was an accident. She asked me out. I was in another world when I said I’d love to and I guess I was speaking out loud.” I take a deep breath. Now he looks amused. The Lamarr I am used to.
The panic wells in my chest.
“Calm down Frank. Deep breaths. Now.” He leans back folding both hands on his desk. “Do you like Gypsy Rose?”
“I find her attractive. The times I have spoken to her she is very nice. She doesn’t look at me like I’m a circus oddity. Other than that and gossip I don’t really know her.”
“Then what better way to get to know her than to go on a date?”
“You know I can’t. The thought of hand holding is scary enough but to think of kissing or…or.” I begin panicking again. He holds up a big hand
“You are jumping ahead of yourself. First of all, a date doesn’t have to include any of the things you mentioned. What to do you plan to do?”
“I didn’t plan anything. She asked me. I planned to not go.”
“Deep down, do you want to go?”
“No!” I nod.

I hope you are enjoying this story and will come back next for more Sweet Gypsy Rose.

#snippetsunday–Sweet and funny time.

Snippet SundayHi, y’all! It’s time for Snippet Sunday again. Time to start the year off on a lighthearted, funny note.  This is a story I started in fall of 2014 after a visit to my dads. I loved the delightful tourist town and decided to make my own.  Sweet Gypsy Rose was born. Then I got sidetracked along the way with sickness and lots of family issues. This year I plan to get a few stories written then decide which path to go on.  For those of you looking for a lighter, humorous story with a free-spirited female lead and a sexy banker that has no idea his potential, toss in a very hunky ex-boyfriend that won’t let go and a secret past, I present… Sweet Gypsy Rose… oh and don’t forget you cat lovers!

Sweet Gypsy Rose copyright 2014

From chapter one — Meet Gypsy Rose

I’m so excited, my adrenaline seems to be in overdrive. That’s not a bad thing. Since I’ll be out tomorrow night, I decide to make some soap, candle waxes and potpourri pies for the shop. I have lots of herbs in the back garden to use up before the frost hits. I gather the lavender, some sage, and rose-hips. I have a few roses, so I decide to take those in too.
The rose hip and blackberry sage teas are two of my biggest sellers. I need to hurry up and use the basil, thyme, and oregano too. Perhaps one day this weekend. I never thought about having a man in my life, other than Ray that is and he’s more like a big child or brother to take care of not a boyfriend. That boat sailed years ago. If only I can convince him of that things will be so much better. Perhaps if things work out with Frank, Ray will finally move on.
A creamy blur attacks my leg, swirling around it like a whirlpool. I nearly fall.
“Daisy! What have I told you about that. You nearly made me fall.”
A nip and meow is all the answer I get. I bend down and scoop the big, fat cat into my arms and rub her nose with mine.
“If I break my arms you won’t get fed so stop running up on me like that in the garden.” I set her down and pick up my baskets of goodies. She follows me into the trailer.
I love my home. It may not look like much, but it suits me. I live in a double wide mobile home that sits at the edge of a large, woodsy campground owned by my mom’s boyfriend and Ray’s dad, Ebeneezer Patterson. My family history is complicated, but I live as simply as I can. I feel at home surrounded by nature, and I help Ray and Ebby run the campgrounds. I am mostly the hostess and help mom with the book keeping.
I do craft workshops in the afternoons on weekends for kids, well used to be kids but now mom’s and some dad’s want to join so it’s just a workshop for anyone wanting to join. I give lessons at the shop also both group classes and private ones. I enjoy them, but I stay busy from morning till bedtime. The downside is the classes are my only social life. I’ve met a few men but once they find how odd my life and extended family are they head for the hills.
I feed Daisy and make myself a snack of goat cheese and fresh fig preserves while assembling my stuff to get to work. I find it goes much smoother this way. As the ingredients cook and the jars boil, I do a quick sweep of the house. When the soaps and waxes are set to cool, the teas bagged, and a batch of jam is processed I take a quick shower wash my hair, and head to bed. I’m so tired that I don’t even pull out my Kindle to read. I close my eyes and think of Frank Taylor. He reminds me a bit of George Clooney except Frank’s hair isn’t as gray. But those eyes are. I’ve never seen eyes like his. Deepest n his handsome face and the color of steel. I bet he is younger than he appears. His face is so full of tension, and he looks sad even when he smiles. I’ve watched him since he moved to town. He has a very set routine and doesn’t get out much.If he did, I would have heard about it by now. The gossip is he works and goes home. No-one has seen him out other than the bank, the coffee shop and one small cafe on our strip. I hope soon I will give them something new to talk about.

I hope you are enjoying this story and will come back next week and meet Frank, Gypsy roses love interest.
