For a slight break from my now full reading routine, I read a cute short ebook story, "Naughty Is Nice" by Mari Carr from Samhain Publishing about a woman who accidently drops her Christmas wish list and a friendly neighbour named Nick, who wants to be more than a friend, picks it up. Two sentences I read were: "He folded the list and put it in his pocket, his mind running a hundred miles a minute. The changes Joy was thinking about making in her life were erotic as all get out."
And two sentences I wrote recently in my draft dark fantasy manuscript 'Keeper 2' were: "Wilhelm had slipped into the abandoned house by a side entrance, and, in doing so, surprised the stranger who missed a step along the ledge above the garden court and who fell, quite literally, into his hands. Her strength had belied her feminine stature."
