Hey, you guys, I’m baaa-aaack! I’ve been busy visiting with family, attending my second RWA national conference, and editing like crazy to get my manuscript ready to be self-published! I decided to return to posting snippets from Steeped in Love to help us gear up for the big release!
Let’s start at the very beginning…
Coffee creamed and stirred. Laptop fired up. Knuckles cracked. Ethan Holtz took a deep breath and waited for inspiration to strike.
He swigged some coffee, hoping a sudden jolt of caffeine might awaken the creative juices.
Nope, though it was a particularly good cup of joe this morning. Not wanting to let the discovery go unappreciated, he raised his mug in salute to Gwen, the talented barista. At least someone around here should be appreciated for their work.
Here’s the blurb:
Addie Mitchell is a pie-on-the-fly entrepreneur who’s finally ready to settle down in the big, empty house her late great-aunt Edna left to her. Frustrated with her lack of success in romance, Addie turns to another gift her great-aunt passed on to her—the art of reading tea leaves—to aid her in her search for the ideal mate.
Novelist Ethan Holtz is having a hard time sinking his teeth into his next project, but he finds Addie fascinating. Mainly for her ability to make her dates disappear in fifteen minutes or less. He can’t help but eavesdrop on her dates in the local coffee shop, his writing haven, and soon finds himself taking pointers on what not to do from her failed suitors.
Though her methods seem nothing short of mad, he falls fast and hard for the pixie-haired pie-pusher. She thinks they’re all wrong for each other, but Ethan teams up with the tea leaves to prove they’re so right.
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!
Just to ramp up the excitement even more, here’s a little sneak peek at the cover for Steeped in Love! I’ll let you all know once it’s available for pre-order! 🙂
