Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the series where I share snippets from new and past releases, and works-in-progress, and occasionally con author buddies into doing the same.
Ooh, you’re in for a treat today. Oh, yes you are!
I don’t often share snippets from works-in-progress, but today I can’t help myself because I’ve seen a cover concept for this book and it’s left me veeeeery excited.
Regular readers will know that I’m working on another Levenaham-set story called Eddie and the Show Queen, featuring Alice Lindner, who you met in Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy, and Eddie Argyle, who is mentioned in a few books, and is brother to Harry from Summer and the Groomsman.
I can’t share the cover yet because it still needs tweaking and I don’t want to put it up until I have pre-order links, but I can whet your appetite with a snippet.
This is unedited, which means it could change a lot between now and publication, or might not make it into the final book at all. So please forgive awkward bits and typos.
I hope you enjoy this teaser from Eddie and the Show Queen!
Alice is having a post-netball training drink with the girls when she bumps into Eddie …
Ignoring Eddie wasn’t easy when he was so big and so close. His beer was on the bar and from the corner of her eye she could see his long fingers circling the glass. Worse, she could feel his gaze. Alice wished he’d go away. His presence was spoiling her excitement over Nick and Chrissy.
‘I entered,’ he said.
Her head whipped around so hard it shot a pain through her neck. ‘You what?’
‘The Show Queen thing. I entered.’
Alice could only stare. Eddie entered? Oh, no, no, no. That was not meant to happen. The thing with the form was just to rile him. He wasn’t actually meant to go through with it.
Poor Eddie. All he wants to do is impress Alice and has no idea that he’s going about it all wrong. The harder he tries, the more of a mess he makes. Expect plenty of smiles with this one, and maybe a tear or two.
