Weekend Writing Warriors #85!

Gooooood morning, my friends, and happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canucks! I’m so thankful for all of you and this weekly hop we have! Steeped in Love officially releases this week! Here’s another little taste before you gulp it all down in one drop! 😉

Continuing from where we left off…

Well, that’s an odd thing to say. What’s she looking for? The meaning of life? The perfect ratio of honey to lemon in her tea—

“How’s the writing going, Ethan?”

He flinched, startled to find Gwen hovering over him with a knowing smile on her face. “Fine,” he muttered.

Her soft hum proved she’d seen the blank page he failed to minimize fast enough. “Hope your hands don’t cramp up,” she teased, then sauntered back behind the counter to cash someone out.

Ethan missed those days—when his fingers could barely keep pace with the words flowing from his brain.

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!

As I mentioned last week, my book baby is currently up for pre-order and will be bursting onto the scene (and screens) on October 10th! I’m still waiting for Amazon to approve the print version, but that should be available early this week, too! Tell your friends, tell your families, your doctors, your dentists, your mail deliverers! To get a copy of your own, visit Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and/or iTunes!

Have a wonderful week, and happy writing! 🙂

    Man, oh man, can I identify with this scene today. The horror of having outside stresses that shut off the well of words. Loving this story, as always and eagerly awaiting release day!

    Yessss, the writing’s going FINE when the page is totally blank LOL. A very relatable scene! Enjoyed the snippet, best wishes with the boo’s release.

    As the king of blank pages, I vociferously differ with the other commenters who denigrate the value of a blank page.
