Trying a Linky List

This is a random post because, thanks to a fellow blogger, I discovered an author blog that started a Linky List on Sundays.  It's called #SundaySnippets.  The rules are simple:

1. Sign up in the Linky List below. The Linsky List will go live 12:01AM Monday and will close at 11:59PM Saturday night every week.
2.Post 6 paragraphs (no more, no less) from either a WIP or a published work. The post must be live by 9:00AM Sunday.
3. Open to both un-published and published authors.
4. Post the link back to the Sneak Peek Sunday so that others can hop along. Feel free to copy and use the Banner on your own blog or to promote your entry.

This is a WIP that's only just begun.  There is no title yet, but if you're new here please take a look at other pieces on my blog.  I'm always looking for new readers and their feedback.  We aspiring authors need all the help we can get. 


It was less than a minute, when Eleni came out of the bathroom wearing faded jeans that kissed every curve from her hips to her knees before flaring out to cover the tops of her sneakers.  “This was the only pair of non-work jeans I got when your mom took me shopping.  She insisted I get them.  What do you think?  Do they look okay?”  She turned sideways, looking behind her at her backside.  “I think they’re too tight and showy.”

“No.”  Ryan almost choked on his tongue trying to interrupt her self-negating.  “They look great.”

Her head came up, her eyes meeting his as a blush crept up her throat to color her cheeks.  Then she dropped her gaze, just as quickly.  “Thank you,” she murmured.

Taking a deep breath, Ryan ran his hand through his curls again.  He had to get this woman to relax around him.  “All right.  Let’s go,” he said, clapping his hands together.  

Eleni flinched at the sound, and Ryan cursed himself.  He had learned she was jumpy with sharp, loud sounds.  Especially in enclosed spaces.  She blamed it on sensitive ears, but he suspected it was related to the scar marring her beautiful face.

“I’m sorry,” he said in a softer voice.  

Check out the other Sunday Snippets.


  1. Thanks for joining in :) I'm sure others will be stopping in this Sunday to read :)

  2. Thank you so much for joining in this week, and I hope you'll continue as I want to keep this a weekly event. I love your six, and actually feel his frustration and attraction. Good job!

    1. Thank you! And thank you for hosting. It's great to be able to get my work out there for more to see.

  3. I agree with Ginger- great six! Makes me want to dig into Eleni's background and found out what happened to her. Sounds as though Ryan will have to tread lightly and with some TLC to get her walls to come down.

    Glad you joined us & I'm looking forward to next week's!
