I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas! I took a whole week of writing, which was a great way to relax and unwind. Now I'm working on a new project (no title as of yet). Here's a snippet from chapter 1 of my latest WIP:
“Are you ready for the decorating party?” Greg asked. It was strange how much mumbling he did at home, but as soon as someone called on the phone or he went to preach from the pulpit, his diction was clear as a newscaster’s.
Katrina pictured herself as she had imagined just a few minutes earlier, spine erect, eyes focused, her entire being exuding confidence as she rationally explained why she had chosen to stay home instead of helping the Ladies Missionary League hang lights and various greeneries around the sanctuary and foyer of Okanogan Bible Church.
“Well?” Greg leaned forward slightly, holding his hand to the doorframe as if his study were a vacuum ready to suck him back in at a moment’s notice. “You did remember that’s today, didn’t you?”
Katrina straightened her spine. She mentally listed all the logical reasons she had come up with that would excuse her from an afternoon with the ladies of Okanogan, the hordes of bustling, gossiping, back-biting bitties that seemed to make up the bulk of the Missionary League. She sucked in her breath. “I’m just running a little late. I’ll be ready as soon as I change my clothes.”
Greg was halfway back in his study before muttering, “You should probably wear your skirt or a dress or something. Don’t forget what happened last time.”
As if Katrina ever could.
I'll keep you posted as I work more on Katrina and Greg's story. In the meantime, Flower Swallow is available in ebook (paperback coming soon). You can get it for $2.99 right here.
