Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors: It's Release Day


Welome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, you chance to sample the work of a talented group of authors. Today just happens to be release day for The Captain and the Cheerleader so I know you can guess where today's excerpt will come from. When you finish here you can find more excerpts at Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors.

Here's a blurb and then an excerpt.

Blurb:


Susan English can’t stand Robin Lanford!  She’s so full of herself she irritates everyone on the faculty of Fairfield High.  When Robin bets Susan fifty dollars that she can’t get a date with Kurt Deveraux, the head football coach, Susan jumps at the chance to put the little heifer in her place.  She had no idea that teaching Robin a lesson would irrevocably change her life, strain treasured friendships, and throw two families into chaos.

Excerpt:

One

Robin Landford swept into the room and plopped down into an orange plastic chair beside Susan English. “I think Kurt Deveraux is gay.”

It was Friday afternoon, but Robin’s statement halted the teacher exodus from the faculty lounge.

“Why do you say that, Robin?” Susan asked. Yeah, her voice sounded chilly and a bit snooty, but she couldn’t help herself. Robin was fresh out of college and seemed to think she was God’s gift to men; she flirted with anything in pants. This annoying little creature had probably made a play for Kurt’s attention and been rejected. Of course, in Robin’s defense, she’d have to say that not many women could ignore Kurt Deveraux. There might be a man somewhere who had more sex appeal than the blond, blue- eyed coach, but Susan doubted it. 


The book will be available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, and at http://www.wingsepress.com.  I don't know if all of the buy links are up or not, but I'd think so. It's available in both print and as an ebook. If you'd  be interested in me coming to your blog to talk about the book, just let me know. I'd love to come.

Poor Kurt! Sounds like a bunch of people heard Robin labeling him--I be it gets around the school pretty quickly!
