Six Sentence Sunday




for January 20th, 2013.



Once again, as with last week's Six Sentence Sunday, in honor of its being voted a Top 10 Romance Novel of 2012 in the P&E Readers' Poll, today I present another excerpt from All My Tomorrows.


And no romance novel would be complete without a little conflict...

 
     Peter crashed into her office with such violence the door hit the wall.
“Are you out of your f#¢k*ng mind?”
      “Uh – Door. Closed. There for a reason.” Alice had never seen him so angry before – not even on screen – with his eyes bulging and his nostrils flaring and his fist twisted around what must have at one point been the script – and it pleased her immensely.
      Her calm manner only provoked him, and he threw the mutilated script on her desk. “Are you insane?”
      “If you do not calm down, I will have to ask you to leave.”
      He turned away and ran his fingers through his hair, possibly pulling some of it out in the process....

About All My Tomorrows:

All My Tomorrows is losing the ratings war.

For headwriter Alice McGillicutty, the past year has had enough drama. Her mother passed away, her last relationship ended in disaster, and now poor ratings are catapulting her long-running soap opera toward cancellation. For comfort and creative inspiration, she begins reading The Edge of Darkness, an old melodramatic paperback she found among her mother’s belongings.

When scandal rips Hollywood bad boy Peter Walsingham off the tabloids and into her studio, Alice doubts the small screen is big enough for his ego – or his entourage. In their battle of pride and prejudice, will Peter’s vanity and arrogance compel Alice to write him out of her script, or can she find a role for him in All My Tomorrows?

Thanks so much to the readers for voting All My Tomorrows a Top 10 Romance Novel of 2012!

  1. This six is completely alive, I can see it like a picture moving before my eyes. Well done. I love that she's calm while he's freaking out. Fab 6.

  2. Makes me wonder how they move past this setback. Wonderful emotional reaction from him contrasting her detachment. I can't help wonder what he found in the script that's so set him off.

  3. wow! That's a livid conflict - from his side. Poor guy. I have pity for him, seeing how it pleases her to rile him.
