Welcome, welcome! I’m redoing the 1st scenes of Swashbuckler and I would greatly appreciate feedback. I’m starting at the very beginning and this Snippet is only about three paragraphs in. Setup: Rachel is at a Hollywood-esque party with Anne, her agent. The first few lines before these described the glitz and glam as well as described how much Rachel feels out of her element.
Anne wrapped her arm around Rachel and gave her a comforting squeeze. “Now, relax and enjoy yourself. I’ll introduce you to a few people and the evening will be over before you know it.”
Rachel let her stiff body be maneuvered across the room, mutely smiling and nodding at the made-up faces perusing hers. Her own smile probably looked as fake as theirs. But at least these people belonged here. She was just an interloper.
It was a complete and total fluke that her book was being made into a movie.
Guess who she meets at the party? 🙂
