My WIP (Work In Progress for those who don't speak Writer)

What am I working on right now?

Well, the sequel to the book I've shown above. Eye Contact, for the record, has not come out yet. I'm tentatively calling the next book Embraced.

Here is an excerpt:

Gene pulled a cigarette out of his coat pocket and Ben shook his head. “Do I need to tell you how disgusting it is that you still smoke?”

His brother shook his head, ignoring his remark as he always did. “Doing anything for the anniversary?”

Ben shook his head. “Anniversary?”

Gene leaned back on the bench where they sat. “Seriously?”

“What?” Somewhere along the line Ben had lost track of this conversation.

“Benedicte Lavelle, I’m asking you what you are going to do to mark the death of your wife? Four years ago tomorrow? Ring some kind of bell?”

Ben put his head in his hands. “Jesus Christ.” He’d fucking forgotten. In the midst of it all, he’d forgotten Dana’s death. What kind of monster was he?

Gene spoke again. “So the weather is nice today, isn’t it?”

*************************************************************************************

So, I hope you'll check out Eye Contact when it comes out and Embraced when I am finally finished working on it!!

Hope you are all well! I am currently on a little vacation with my oldest friend. I will be returning to real life tomorrow!!

See you all then!!

I'm anxious to read Eye Contact. I remember all the excitment in our crit group about it but I never had a chance to at least grab a chapter.

Very tense excerpt. I recognize this from Six Sunday, don't I? :)

Having had a sneak peek at a bigger chunk of this story, I have to tell you I can't wait to see it out, Rebecca.
