Here's the blurb for Adventures in Online Dating: After too many failed relationships, too many shots of tequila, and too many not-so-gentle nudges from her best friend, Sydney Montrose joins an online dating site in hopes of finding THE ONE. During her adventures, she crosses paths with a professional gamer who lives with his parents, a sweet and sarcastic parking enforcement officer, a flirty barista, a mystery man, a touchy-feely former felon, and a clown. Which one will she choose? Well, that's all entirely up to you!
And here's an excerpt, skipping ahead a bit. Joe's moved from talk of video games and 'ganking' people to the subject of tattoos...and video games:
“Most of my tatts represent my favorite war games: Sniper Elite, Battlefield, Call of Duty, then there’s Wolfenstein, Medal of Honor....”
He continued rattling off names of video games she’d never heard of. In times like these, of such sheer and utter boredom, she took a deep sigh and turned to Mozart. The upbeat chords of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik danced in her eardrums. When his lips stopped flapping, she put a pause on the classical tune and nodded her head, as though she were completely absorbed in the conversation.
“Joe,” she murmured, “just out of curiosity, do you live with your parents?”
“Yeah, but I’m saving up, ya know? Like, I’m probably four tournament wins away from buying my own pad.”
Oh Joe. lol. Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!
Did anyone else find this past week was the week that never ended? Sheesh. It felt more like two or three weeks combined. That probably has more than a little bit to do with the fact that it was report card week, aka: Hell week for teachers. But they're finished now, and I can breathe a little easier, at least until the end of June. Wishing you all a wonderful, unstressed week ahead! :)
