Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors

Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, your chance to sample the work of a talented group of authors. My sample is from my latest release The Captain and the Cheerleader. When you're finished here, you can find more samples at:


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: Last week we learned that Robin tried to get the attention of the football coach and failed. Susan told Robin she just didn't know how to attract a man like Kurt.

“Well, I think you’re full of it,” Robin sniffed. “If I couldn’t get him to notice me, I know you can’t.”

Around the faculty lounge a murmur of delighted, horrified voices broke out.

Susan finished her soft drink and tossed the can into a nearby recycling bin. “I could make Kurt ask me out if I wanted to.”

“Yeah? Prove it. Get him to ask you out. I’ll bet you fifty dollars you can’t do it,” Robin taunted. “All he’s interested in is football.” 

The book is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords, and from the publisher WingsePress.

A challenge no woman could refuse. Can't wait to see how she rises to it!

Fifty bucks! I'd give it a shot but wait, I'm no longer in High School. Oh well. Nice premise, Elaine.

Being paid to seduce a man...I like money, but I still don't think I could do it. LOL. Best of luck to Susan, though! Wait til he finds out what she's up to. :-)

I might accept the challenge if there were money involved, but I'm not sure I'd be able to figure out a way to do it. I'm guessing her method will involve football somehow.

Nice recipe for disaster here, with this bet, but I'm confident you tell the story well. Great snippet!

J said...

Oh boy, she has just bit off more than she can chew. Buckle up for a wild ride! Nice setup here.

Teresa Cypher said...

Haha! Good scene, Elaine. And we all know this really has nothing to do with fifty dollars. :-)

Unknown said...

Huh. I like her a tiny bit less for the "make him" ask her out. Why can't she ask him out? Liberated woman, and all that!

I imagine that Susan is going to be fifty dollars richer, just hope she won't have regrets.
