Looking to ease your way into wedding season and support a worthy cause? Then check out “Matrimonial Mayhem”, an anthology of short stories released this week by Astraea Press. All proceeds will benefit the Governor of Alabama’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiative, which is assisting those in the areas hardest hit by the recent tornadoes. The following excerpt comes from “Marriage on Sunset”, and features two characters who appear in my recently released paranormal romance, “Matching Wits With Venus”.
SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY:
Stella Sweetwater picked up her rhinestone-trimmed alarm clock and chucked it across the room. She groaned, adjusted the pink satin sleep mask wrapped around her eyes, and pulled a white eyelet pillow over her head. The alarm clock chirped. Slowly Stella pulled herself to her feet, rooted around to find the little timepiece in the pile of unfolded laundry propped against the wall, and removed its batteries. She sat on the edge of the sleigh bed tucked into the recess below the window, stared up at a poster of Bette Davis, and lit a cigarette. It was the morning of her wedding day.
