My hiatus is officially over…. i think…
Okay, that took longer than I thought it would!
I passed all my exams, earned a shiny new degree, and also got a job! I’ve been super busy the past few weeks, but things are starting to calm down (unless I just jinxed that by saying it :)).
So now that I’m back, here’s a snippet from my as-yet uncontracted speculative LGBTQ YA novel. Almost all of the rejections have been positive, so I’m still hopeful Psyche & Co. will find a home. Find more snippets from this book here.
This snippet skips some sentences of substance after the last one I posted. (Heh, alliteration.) I’m keeping anything that could be spoilery off the blog for now so it couldn’t be helped. (I think. If something’s already slipped there’s not much I can do about it, ‘cuz the tubes never forget. :))
The first dialogue is Cam’s, he and Psyche are still on the phone. I know this all sounds cryptic. I’d apologize, but it wouldn’t be sincere. 😉
“You could’ve said no anytime.”
“I know.” She thought about what they’d done, the kissing and groping, and what everyone thought they’d done which was much more. She wanted to apologize but knew how that would sound, so she didn’t. Which left her with nothing to say.
“See you tomorrow.”
“Yeah.” She wanted to see him right now but since he “knew about her” it would only be frustrating.
Thanks for reading!
