Good news!! I finished editing book for (this time around anyway) and got a few proof copies ordered for my proofreaders. With that project set aside, I also was able to submit chapter one of Entertaining Angels (first book in my new series) to my critique group. Yay! I’m looking forward to getting some good feedback from the group.
Keep in mind, this is one of my first drafts and they tend to change a lot, but I thought I’d share the first few paragraphs from the new book with you.
One word still struck fear into her whenever it lit up on her cell phone. It had been eight years. But all it took was one phone call. One unavailable number could bring up all of the pain she’d clawed her way out of.
Parker’s fingers rested on the scar under her left clavicle. The physical reminder was altered but there none the less. Despite the knot in her stomach, she needed to take this call. She was waiting to hear from two potential clients.
“Parker St. John. How may I help you?”
A slight delay preceded the voice on the other end of the line. “Parker? It’s me.” The words were rushed. Charlie would understand her concern. “Sorry to call without warning, but I need a favor.”
