Happy Friday everyone. A few contests I've been meaning to get on here:
Lindsey at Dangerous With a Pen is celebrating 100 followers.
Abby Annis (whose blog is incredibly beautiful) is celebrating the same mark. And, I'm very late--Abby's ends tonight!
So is Kristi at Random Acts of Writing (well sorta--101 celebration for her).
Same with Guinevere at This Is Not My Day Job.
Noelle Nolan is celebrating 150!
Wow. Happy hundred+ ladies.
Roni at Fiction Groupie is offering up crits. Extra! Extra! Get your free crit (instructions) here.
If I've missed anybody, feel free to yell at me in comments and I will edit to add your link as well :)
Since it's Friday, I'm posting a snip. This is from Book 2[untitled] of Roulette. I just have an outline and some very basic scenes written. And, while this book definitely goes with the first, it's completely stand alone as set up. It's also much less romance and a whole lot more suspense.
Here Kasia is rescuing the abused girlfriend (seen here only as N) of a Russian trafficker she's been trying to take down. The girl isn't as cooperative as she could be, but she has a couple good reasons. Kasia does her best to take it in stride and understand.
As usual, I've removed sentences due to spoilers and unneccesary (for the blog) fillers. This is the first draft, I did it for a monthly SOC exercise at the website I frequent.
