Sneak peak into Misguided — my short in Into The Unknown! #giveaway
In Misguided, Little White Lies’s Wyatt Moreland is hot on the trail of a wanted man when a rumor about his fiancée halts his progress. His desire to keep her safe wars with her need to be involved in his work and could derail their entire wedding unless he finds out the truth before she does.
First 250 words:
Wyatt Moreland walked through his office door and froze. “Why are you in my chair?” He shook his head. “Better yet, why do you have your feet on my desk?”Stuart Vance, forgiven former best friend, and most recent ad- dition to Wyatt’s team, rose from the chair, an apple in his hand. “You weren’t here. I had to wait. Got bored.” He bit into the fruit and sprayed fresh juices into the air.Wyatt took Stuart’s vacated spot at the mahogany desk he’d had for a decade. “You have your own office, you know.” Wyatt tugged at his tie, relaxing it from his throat after six straight hours of meetings.Stuart, still in his suit, but tieless, moved to a visitor’s chair. “Yeah, but my space isn’t as big.” He bit again, the scent filling the space.Wyatt rolled his eyes, opened his laptop and waited for the login screen to appear. A dull buzz started at the back of his ma- chine, adding to the irritated throb at his eyes.Stuart hummed behind his snack.A glare from Wyatt didn’t stop the tuneless noise. “Okay. What do you want?” His fingers tapped on the keyboard.“Well …” Stuart leaned forward, positioning his elbows on his knees. “I was wondering when you were going to get Charley a real ring?”The jerk of Wyatt’s head accompanied the stillness of his fingers.A crunch rang through the small office. “I’m just sayin’ . . .” Wyatt’s slow turn should have been a warning. “. . . she might like something that wasn’t bought by an eighteen year old with his meager savings.”
On December 1, 2011 you can see Wyatt’s response and what happens when a ring becomes more than just a topic of conversation. It could be the difference between life and death. Or not. 🙂
But between now and then, you better hurry up over to J. Taylor Publishing as their giving away Little White Lies, Into the Unknown AND two other complete novels along with bookmarks and a signed cover of Into the Unknown! Dude!
