This week I've been knee deep (or maybe that should read pen deep?) in edits for my next feature-length novel.
The book, Dancing in the White Room, is upmarket women's fiction. It's a story about the love we keep and what it takes to hold on to a relationship. It's due out with TMP next March.
In my snippet, the heroine, Mallory is remembering a time with her boyfriend, Bell, who is an extreme skier.

He let go my hand and went back to working on the chair. He was measuring spokes for the back, piecing them into the seat. It amazes me how careful his hands are when he builds. You would never know it, watching him ski a slide or a glade. He’s all body then, all sharp turns and angles, his legs and arms all hammer and spring. Yet with this task, he takes his time, his hands grow soft, measured.
They are that way with me too. Soft, measured, slow.
Thanks for stopping by!
