WeWriWa: Let's Stay Together . . . and a Pre-Order Announcement!


Let's start off with a continuation of last week's emotional scene from PRINCE OF FOOLS . . . then, to the Big Announcement!

Things are bad all over for poor Rico as he tries to convince Amber to believe in him, the way no one else ever has before. He's finally made the commitment in his own heart and mind that she and her daughter are his future. But she seems less certain it's a road they can travel together, not with all the ugly stuff she has packed in her past baggage. Last week's excerpt ended with Rico claiming, "Ammy, you don't have to carry whatever this is alone.”


“I may not be smart, but I can lift heavy things. Trust me to help you carry whatever this is. Please, please, let me help you."

A sob escaped, "I can't."

"Yes, you can. I'm right here, where I'll always be for you and Evie, and nothing, nothing will change that. I'm your guy. I will fight for you, I'll protect you, you know I will. If it's something you can't talk about just yet, I'll wait until you can. Just don't push me away."

So, what do you think she's going to do?? The rest of the scene will play out next week.

Now, the ANNOUNCEMENT!

PRINCE OF FOOLS will be up for Pre-Order on Kindle at any minute. SQUEEE! Yes, I still have some revisions to finish, but you can be first in line when October 23 rolls around to have this HOT ("House of Terriot"!) cover set Fire to your e-reader screen:

  1. This is the kind of speech that should win over most women's hearts . . . but of course you may not want things to be that easy for him. And congratulations on the pre-release.

  7. "I'm your guy." That sentence figured prominently in one of my favorite episodes of Bones. It works well here, too.

  10. Excellent excerpt, very heart felt declaration on his part but I hope he's truly ready to hear whatever she has to share. Best wishes on the pre-order phase!

  11. I understand why she has a hard time trusting--how can you really know if someone can handle your secret, no matter what they promise? But she just has to take a leap of faith. He seems solid.
