Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, where I share snippets from new and past releases and works-in-progress, and occasionally con author buddies into doing the same.
What an exciting week it was in the Hein household.
First up, I FINISHED MY EDDIE AND THE SHOW QUEEN EDITS!
Sorry for the shouting, but this is a big deal. With all my health dramas it’s been a serious effort to get this book done, and now it nearly is!
This also means I’ll be showing off its awesome cover, releasing its blurb and putting it up for pre-order very soon. If you want to be among the first to know when this happens, make sure you’re part of my newsletter team. Join here.
The other exciting event was that we trekked down to Sydney for Vivid, the annual light, music and ideas festival, and it was spectacular. If I get the chance I’ll do up a This Writing Life blog post with photos (hopefully better ones than my 2017 Vivid efforts). They won’t do it justice. Like Sculpture by the Sea, Vivid is something that needs to be experienced. The festival runs until June 15th so if you can, get to Sydney and take in this wonder.
Now, on to our Teaser Tuesday snippet and I bet you can guess which book it’s going to be from.
Yep, Eddie and the Show Queen.
Here’s a teeny taste of Eddie’s first encounter with Alice, along with a little hint of its gorgeous cover.
He wandered over to the counter. Alice glanced up, pursed her pretty lips and went back to whatever she was doing.
Another tug hurt his heart. With everyone else, Alice was a cute-as-a-button girl whose sweet bubbliness was so infectious people couldn’t help but smile in her presence. With him she was stiff and cold, and nothing like the Alice he once had loved.
Eddie and the Show Queen is coming soon in print and ebook. Make sure you’ve joined my newsletter to ensure you’re first to get all the delicious details.
