New Book Still Untitled….
Most of you know I have been working on a book for about 6 months now. Ive had to take some time off writing to deal with some personal issues. But I hope to get back to writing soon. I know that I should be much further along but I know that I can make up the time once I get my creative juices flowing again. I know that the time is coming because I dream of the book in my sleep. Possible issues, crisis and endings, cover art. I feel like I work on it in my sleep, wake up and get the ideas on paper before they disappear. So with that being said, I figured I would give you guys a sneak peak. However please excuse any grammatical errors, spelling errors and of course misplaced modifiers. This is a rough draft and still in the building process. But I know there are a few who have been asking about it so here it is. I hope you enjoy a little tidbit of the beginning.
As Ara gazed around the crowded dock at the San Diego pier there were hundreds of people milling about. As she gazed across the water and saw the fishing boats heading back into port after their morning catch, she remembered a similar day a long time ago. It was this amazing trip to San Diego in middle school, the sun way out, she was in love, and the future was bright. It was one of those special memories you never forget and the beginning of something so fresh and innocent that even today she is moved to tears by it. She remembered the whaling boat splashing against the waves, the smell of fish in the air( not so great) as the whales moved alongside the boat. It felt like they were waving long and strong at everyone on the boat saying look at me I’m here. I need to focus she muttered knowing she was thirty minutes late with the high hope that she might have missed her chance but knowing she had to go through with it. Her assistant made sure that she knew exactly where she needed to be. They just didn’t plan on the bad San Diego traffic to hold her up. She moved ahead determined, a little scared his family would see her, recognize her and start a scene. This was a risk she knew it but one that was ten years in the making. She saw other families hugging and crying their long separation over, others looking around for family members waiting to be reunited. She gasped softly, he was hard to miss standing there in his officers uniform, as handsome as he was the last day she saw him. A day she wanted to forget but never could. He was no longer tall and skinny but muscular, tanned and smoking hot. Thirty looked good on him. All the pain and hurt slipped its way into her heart and mind, she stopped to breathe, she closed her eyes and pushed it away and locked it in the box she has kept it in all these years fearing that just seeing him would open it enough to overwhelm her sense. She needed to quit thinking about the past and focus on the present. She had a lot to tell him and not enough time before his family appeared.
I don’t want to give away too much but this is a bit of a tease to let you know I haven’t forgotten. I wonder how Alex is gonna feel when he finds out he has 10 year old twins he never knew about 😛
