Teaser Tuesday

So...I've been a little busy lately with you know trying to get my house up for sale, working, having a baby, oh and did I mention that I FINISHED the edits for the agent that requested them?  Oh yeah... MY PAPER HEART is no long a crossover YA romance, but a contemporary women's fiction!  *fistpump* er...kind of a fist pump...

So without further ado the line that completely changed my main character, Libby, from my first thought of her as a sorority girl with issues to what she really became; a young woman looking for acceptance anywhere she could find it until she found out the one person she needed it from was herself....and SCENE

"I'm going for a run…" I mumbled, defeated as I sprang from the table, not even bothering to look back as I slipped into my shoes and ran out the front door and down the cobblestone driveway.

Running was a sure fire way to get rid of my problems. I literally felt like I was running nowhere, with nowhere to go and no one to be waiting for me. I ran every morning with my pledge class to make sure that I made weekly weigh ins, I ran as quickly as I could through my notes before a test hoping that I would actually be able to remember something on a test, and on that last night of finals I just happened to run into my boyfriend going down on my roommate.

Maybe running wasn't such a bad thing after all. If I ran to Louisiana then maybe I could run away from everything back home and just forget about Chicago. Forget that I had no place else to go.

Thoughts?  Opinions?


  1. Followed ya here from Karen's BBQ. You had me at: "As tbe crazy Sicilian that thinks she's a southern belle I would make prailines..." Hey, fellow Sicilian and southern belle! So glad I stopped by. I'm revising my women's fic ms too. Lots in common. I'll be back! Have a great weekend.

  2. I like it! especially that last sentence. Had good emotional punch. :)

    I cam over from Karen's BBQ blog party. :)

  3. Hi, Magan! I popped over from Karen's blog BBQ to say hello. It's always fun meeting new bloggers. :-)


You should leave me a comment. It would probably make me smile and then I will probably comment back. Unless you are a spambot. Then I will probably just ignore you.
