Thank you for stopping by for this week of Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors. It’s been a few crazy weeks (like that’s unusual, LOL) and this is the first chance I’ve had to post. On the other hand, I’m nearly 50% of the way through edits on Swashbuckler and I’m getting VERY excited that she’s almost ready for an editor and then beta readers. Honestly? I never thought I’d get this far. It’s like a dream come true. 🙂
So, on to the snippet. Rachel is meeting with Rodger, an A-list actor who is playing the character of Sir Rohbert MacLeod, the hero in a book Rachel wrote. They’d had a late afternoon meeting scheduled at a hotel restaurant.
Just as their fingers were about to touch, another young woman came up to them for an autograph and then there was a camera flash. Rodger leaned in towards Rachel, “Apparently the circus has begun–I have to get out of here.”
Rachel looked up and saw that while they’d been talking, the restaurant had filled with patrons and there was a line at the door waiting to be seated. Where had the time gone? Her time with Rodger Conrad was at an end. Being a famous actor, she was sure he must have plans and was getting ready to dismiss her just as he had dismissed his fan. Rachel began to gather her belongings.
“Let me take you out for dinner, Rachel,” Rodger said unexpectedly.
