Welcome back. Our hop is a lot of fun today. Make sure to check out Carrie Elks, author of Broken Chords.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fellow Romance Weekly author, Susan Scott Shelley (author of Rekindled) wants to know our player's (hero's) walk-up song (aka Entrance theme). 

Unfortunately, I don't have any theme songs for my characters. My mind has been so overly cluttered with stuff to do these days most of the time there are no songs that pop into my head, except maybe:  

The itsy bits spider climbed up the water spout, down came the rain.... 

Okay. I'll be singing that later. :)

Or a random tune from a Ford Raptor toy my toddler has decided to just keep his finger on the button for the past 1/2 hour while he smiles and dances. It's equally adorable and annoying! 

Devil or Angel?

Devil or Angel?

But there is hope for this post still. I did have an idea for a story line that came from a song I enjoyed when I was actually working out on a consistent basis. This was a long time ago, but I have gotten back into working out (slowly) so maybe I'll be getting more ideas from music in the future. **crosses fingers**

The song is  "E.T." by Katy Perry.  

He gives Amber chills.

He gives Amber chills.

I heard this while working out. I had been working on a manuscript with my alien (a.k.a. Sixxers) soldier team and when this song played in my headphones I immediately imaged one of the soldiers, Amber hearing this song and feeling equal parts fear and hope. Now, Amber is a tough as nails soldier and she's not afraid of anything, except the Sixxer who betrayed her. The lyrics of the song "Could you be the devil? Could you be an angel?" fit this Sixxer to a T, and the extraterrestrial theme fit my concept, too. So, I guess this is his theme song if Amber had a say in the decision. She hasn't told me his name, yet. I'm upset about that.

Now, that this idea has been brought to the front of my mind again, I really really want to start writing Amber's story. I'm going to have to do something about this problem.

I came up with this week's blog topic which is what I called a mini flash fiction. My mistake was thinking because I made the word count requirement small that it would be easy to write but nope! 

So I wanted everyone to describe a kiss in 10 words or less, but also include the words pink & sweet

What was I thinking? Apparently, when I came up with this idea I wasn't thinking and it took several days of thinking and trying different versions before I decided I found the right one. 

So here it goes my attempt: 

 

Pink nose, rose lips, my sweet baby's kiss brings joy. 

 

My toddler had learned how to kiss. They are these sweet wide mouth wet smooches that are kinda gross but squeeze my heart. He dishes out hugs, too. Love him!
