Though I love writing fantasy and science fiction, every now and then I try my hand at genres that are a little outside of these boxes. Some years ago I wrote a chick lit novella, a very different experience for me, but haven’t yet decided exactly what I want to do with it. Here’s a short excerpt:
~ Cathryn knew she should do some work. She hadn’t gone into the office and was behind on approving the month’s layout. There was always hell when that happened. She couldn’t move though. She’d sat in the same spot for hours, at first contenting herself by watching television, then by sleeping and finally there she was, just sitting staring at the wall, a piece of unbathed furniture. She’d called Reese to see if he’d be up for anything, but after the phone had rung the first few times, she’d decided he must be busy and had given up. She supposed he’d call her back when he had time. She thought about walking around her block as it was a nice night and the fresh air would do her good. This was quickly abandoned for the simple reason that she didn’t feel good enough to move. The nausea never stopped. It was like this never-ending quake in the pit of her stomach, that made her feel as if throwing up was the only option, only, it never happened. She took it like a trooper though, believing with all her heart that she deserved whatever pain and suffering would come her way, especially as she was about to commit murder. ~
Come on guys it’s me, no matter the genre you must expect a little blood and intrigue lol. Have great days and check out my YA paranormal/fantasy Secrets of the Tenari ‘here’ on Amazon.
