Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, where I share snippets from new and past releases and works-in-progress, and occasionally twist the arms of author buddies to do the same.
Wasn’t it lovely to have Anna Campbell back on the blog last week? Anna’s always great value and her teaser for The Highlander’s Lost Lady was a beauty. If you missed it, you can read the teaser and book links here.
This week you have me again. I had thoughts of sharing more of Eddie and the Show Queen with you, but I’ll hold off for a little longer. There’ll be plenty of Eddie when the book goes up for pre-order. If you want to be among the first to know when that is, please join my newsletter. Or keep your eye on this blog or my Facebook page.
Whenever I think of Eddie and the Show Queen – which is a lot at the moment because I’m working on its edits – I can’t help but think of Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy. Not only because so many of the characters are linked, but because I had such a blast writing it. The story seemed to fly out of my fingers and every morning I sat down at the keyboard excited to play with Chrissy and Nick. It’s a book with lots of good memories.
There’ll be plenty of good memories with Eddie and the Show Queen too. Once I get through edits!
Here’s a snippet from an early chapter of Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy, when Chrissy and Nick first bump into each other.
Nick followed as she stepped out, casting an appreciative gaze over her bum as he probed his soupy brain for who she could be. She wasn’t the kind of girl he’d forget in a hurry, yet he was stuffed if he could place her. It was clear she knew him though.
‘Everyone knows the Burroughs boys.’
Nick blinked. This was news. Sure, he’d had his photo in the paper a few times for footy, but that didn’t mean anything.
‘Huh. How ’bout that.’
Suddenly the girl whirled around, causing Nick, who’d been admiring her bum again, to almost crash into her. ‘You haven’t got a clue who I am, have you?’
I love this scene. It’s a lot of fun. But what follows is even more fun as Nick desperately tries to make up for the past and capture Chrissy’s heart. Find out how he does with your own copy of Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy, available now in ebook and print from:
