Snippet Sunday

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday, your chance to sample the work of a talented group of authors. When you finish here, you can follow the links at the end of the post to find more authors. My excerpt is from my upcoming September 23 release Rest Thy Head. Last week we saw that even though my heroine's fiance cheated on her, her mother insisted that she marry him anyway. This week, she's at the church waiting to marry him.

“I’m not marrying Drew!” Peyton ripped off her veil and
kicked off her expensive designer heels. “Unbutton me; hurry!”

She felt Ashley’s fingers fumbling at the buttons on the back
of the dress. “Rip ‘em off if you have to, Ash.”

“I’ve got the last one.”

Peyton shimmied out of her dress and stomped it for spite,
taking satisfaction when a nearby chair pricked the heavy fabric.
“I’m getting out of here, but don’t tell anyone.”

Good for her!

I'm really liking Payton, Elaine. She's a great character---I like that stomp. :D

I had a feeling you wouldn't write a wimp heroine and here we are, cheering for this brave gutsy young woman. Good for her and for you, Elaine.

Good for her! Wonder if she's got a plan though, with manipulative mom around she needs to get away and stay away!

I'm glad she finally doing what she wants instead of what her mother wants!

P.T.Wyant said...

I love the defiance, but, um... Don't you think they'll notice when she's not there? This could be fun!

Author, Neva Rodriguez said...

Very intriguing. I love it!

Elyzabeth M. VaLey said...

Thank goodness she´s running away! I can't believe her mom wanted to force her to marry. Great snippet, Elaine!

Allyson said...

I want to know why she's running away.

JTsuruoka said...

Very nice. You captured the sense of frenzied action & made the whole scene easy to visualize.

Elaine Cantrell said...

Thanks to all for commenting. Allyson, he cheated on her.

Sue Ann Bowling said...

Well, she's made up her mind.

Linda said...

Why the hell would her mother want her to marry a guy who cheated on her? I mean that's realistic but I really don't get people most of the time. I hope she can elope.
