Weekend Writing Warriors #20!

Hey, folks! Happy Summer! Hope you've been lounging in the sun, enjoying the warm weather! Summer to me means I now have permission to eat ice cream and lots of it. I actually brought home three adorable mini containers of Haagen-Dazs from the store the other day (they were like a million percent off, btw), and I proceeded to eat them. All three of them. Simultaneously. It was like an ice cream orgy. Delicious.  

Speaking of delicious things, let's continue this week with another excerpt from my mime/clown love story, All Action, No Talk!

A part of her wanted to keep his voice all to herself. But if it meant sharing his voice to save her from making a mistake of monumental proportions, she was willing to do it. Just this once. “And you look….”

He smiled and tugged at his collar with his free hand. “I hate these clothes. I feel ridiculous.”

She squeezed his fingers. “I totally know what you mean.”




Here's the blurb: 


Alice Moore is a clown . . . in love with a mime.

Her parents have never approved of her circus-oriented lifestyle and in effort to deter her from wasting her life clowning around, they set her up with family friend, Grant Humphrey. A practical man. A businessman. And the last man on earth she wants to marry, but here she is, marching down the aisle toward him.

Alex Holiday is a mime . . . in love with a clown.

He’s silently followed Alice from venue to venue on the circus circuit, working alongside her, worshiping her in secret. He’s never been able to tell her how he feels . . . until now. When he catches wind of the upcoming wedding, he vows to put a stop to it. But will his objection be too late?

If you'd like to get yourself a copy, check out Amazon or the Turquoise Morning Press bookstore! :) Oh, and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors too! Have a fabulous Sunday, my friends! And eat as much ice cream as you want! :D

    1. Hee! Thanks, Veronica! I had chocolate peanut butter, triple chocolate, and chocolate chip cookie dough. Not much of a chocolate fan. ;) I will definitely try to incorporate the ice cream orgy into my next story!

  6. They're so cut, I hope everything works out for them. But since they're characters, I foresee more drama!
