This is my snippet for Weekend Writing Warriors (www.wewriwa.com) where writers share 8 – 10 lines of their work, for others to see and comment. Please follow and comment about others on the list.
The snippet is once more from my book, Songbird. Last week Jake’s daughter, April, comes to see him in floods of tears, and tells him that she has caught her boyfriend in bed with her mother. The following is in the POV of Jake, in a telephone conversation with his friend, Harry. (And I apologise if anyone is offended by the bad language.)
“Well buddy, it looks as though the crisis you were expecting has come a little earlier than you thought.”
“It’s been one giant fuck-up. That prick, Tarquin, dumped April because she wouldn’t have sex with him, and the following day she catches him in bed at home with her mother. How about that for a sleazy story?”
I heard a slight gasp from Harry. Clearly he was shocked as I had been.
“Not only that, when I went to confront her, Corinne told me I had no right to moralise. She’s been having me followed, and knows about Rosie and me. She says she wants a divorce, and that she and Jason would be consulting their lawyers to force me from the club. So it’s been quite a night.”
So it seems that the chickens are coming home to roost for both Jake and Corinne. Next week we can hear how Harry and Pascale are faring. Songbird is available for sale on Amazon US here, and Amazon UK here.
SONGBIRD is the story of a French singer, whose mesmerising voice and looks attracts Harry like no other woman has before. But she has scars from her past. It is also the story of Harry’s best friend, Jake, who owns the night club where Harry and Pascale first meet.
Songbird has gained some excellent reviews on Amazon, with 22 reviews averaging 4.9 stars out of 5.
“Songbird is a richly woven thriller, filled with twists and interesting characters.”
“This story kept me captivated and on the edge of my seat as the life of Pascale unfolds.”
“Riveting and entirely enjoyable, Song Bird was a book I had trouble putting down.”
