As we polish our white shoes, break out the charcoal, and plant pots of petunias in anticipation of the upcoming Memorial Day weekend (for those of you across the pond, up north, or down under, I’m referring to the three-day weekend that includes the last Monday in May, in which we remember fallen service men and women and kick off the unofficial start of summer in the States) many of us will be looking for beach books. Or hammock books. Or picnic books. Whatever your fancy, please consider “Matching Wits With Venus”, my recently released paranormal romance about a Hollywood matchmaker and the Roman god Cupid. Below please find an excerpt from “Matching Wits With Venus”, my offering for this week’s Six Sentence Sunday. As you can see, this is not your mother’s Valentine’s Day greeting card Cupid.
SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY:
Inside the ocher palazzo Venus flicked her cream colored scarf over her slender shoulders as she peered through the ultra-powerful telescope she had trained on Happily Ever After By Amelia.
“You have to do something about that woman or before you know it they’ll be tearing down all those statues of me and calling her the goddess of love.”
Venus turned away from the window and looked at her son. Cupid was sitting on the edge of a pink silk sofa, a thick clutch of papers between his muscular hands.
“If you’d just take a look at these spreadsheets, I think you’ll see I’ve discovered a way to streamline everything. I’ll be able to shoot twice the arrows in half the time if I don’t have to keep backtracking.”
Enjoy your Sunday and please be sure to check out the fabulous writing found at: http://sixsunday.blogspot.com/
