First Paragraphs

My writer friends and I were chatting and the topic of story endings arose. Which led to story beginnings. So here’s a selection of the first paragraphs of some of my stories. Can you guess which story they’re from?

1.
“Damn, are you sure you can’t last a little longer, Jaxi?” Travis looked away, but not before she’d spotted the disappointment in his eyes. The annoyance.

2.
Cupid sneezed violently and fell back onto his pillow exhausted. “There’s no bloody way I can make the party, Claire. I swear the top of my head is coming off and my eyes are watering so much I can’t see to aim the arrows in the first place. I’m sorry, but you’ll just have to have a regular Valentine’s Day celebration without me.”

6.
The information was up on Wikipedia for a full two hours before a security checker (third class) caught it and frantically edited the entry that provided the complete location and access codes for all the gateways to Fae.

7.
September, Whistler, British Columbia
The Whistler pack house was crowded after dinner, with small groups gathered around the room talking amongst themselves. Conversations quieted for a moment as laughter burst out from where the Alpha and his cronies sat in the prime seats before the huge stone fireplace. An icy warning trickled up her spine, and Missy gave up on the discussion in front of her. She rose from her chair and headed quietly toward the exit.

8.
So that’s where the bastard had gone.

9.
The scent of cinnamon and fresh coffee rushed to greet him as Ryan Claymore yanked the door open with more force than necessary. It might be the most talked about coffee shop in the county, but it was fucking hard to find, and only minutes remained until his meeting was scheduled to begin.

Contest Winners

Yesterday was a whirlwind of activity between co-hosting a chat with writer friends at Joyfully Reviewed and posting on the Samhain blog for the first time.

So today is take it easy day!

I also have the great pleasure of handing out a couple of copies of my upcoming book, Wolf Signs. The first copy is for the winner of the Sweet Mischief Valentine contest, based on my free story available from Samhain here. After dipping into the pile of entries -Brooks- is the winner!

As well, yesterday at Joyfully Reviewed I promised to stop being miserly and let one of the participants enjoy a copy as well. I had to do a double blind draw to make sure it was fair and -molli- raced to be in first place.

Congratulations to the winners and I hope you enjoy the story.

In terms of writing, I have completed revisions on Rocky Mountain Heat and once I get some comments back I’ll be resubmitting it. I’m very pleased with how it has turned out and hope for wonderful things in the future!

Sweet Mischief

In honour of the release of Sweet Mischief, my Valentine’s freebie now available from Samhain, I’m hosting a contest!

Claire steals her brother Cupid’s bow and arrows to help make her Valentine’s party a success. Only she’s never had the best aim and gets into a sticky situation with the one guy she’s always wanted, Troy.

There are a lot of sweet things that happen in the story, as well as sexy hot mischief. To enter the contest, count up every time a new treat or sweet is mentioned. To clarify, if I mention cotton candy a few times, only count it once.

Send the final total to VivianArend@shaw.ca. I’ll gather all the correct answers on Feb 19, pull a name and the winner gets an Advanced Readers Copy of my March 24th release, Wolf Signs.

Haven’t got the story? It’s available for download here. Good luck and I hope you enjoy reading Sweet Mischief.

Great ideas....finally!

I’ve been loving the blog. Really, I have. But living on the Pacific coast and trying to get life started on time on the mornings…some days I feel like it’s the evening and I haven’t posted yet.

Finally, a brain wave hit. I’m still going to post five days a week (sorry, Karina, only five.) but I’ll try to post the night before. That way even though -I’m- still snoozing, the day will have begun here in Dreamland.

So what is new in the New Year?

Submitted The Wind and The Sun again. Waiting for a response on Rocky Mountain Heat. Working on the synopsis for Tidal Wave.

And finished the Valentine short for Samhain, Sweet Mischief. I really like how it turned out and many thanks to Mari Carr, Joy Roach and Valerie Tibbs for helping me proofread it and polish it up. Kisses!

Oh, and exciting news from Mari. She sold Everything Nice to Ellora’s Cave. Yeah, Mari!!!! Excellent story, and you’re an inspiration to me.

I want to be you when I grow up. Well, except I like my straight hair. :)
