Piper’s Passion Cookies has been submitted. Yay!
I completed the first draft on the due date, so I didn’t have much time to fret or edit. After a quick read-through, I rephrased a few sentences here and there with the help of two fabulous fellow authors. It is unlike me to spend so little time polishing my work, but with less than five minutes before the deadline, I pushed the send button anyway. Aaugh!
A blurb of my short story:
finds an old wooden chest in the attic while rummaging through her grandmother’s belongings. Inside is a book titled Granny Bell’s Magic Recipes. The cookbook couldn’t have come at a better time, for she needs to take cookies to the neighborhood pool party. With the touch of an enchanted easy-peasy ingredient, Granny Bell’s passion cookies promise to capture even the most reluctant man’s attentions—and her love life could certainly use a little magic. Bell
She tests her first batch on the poolside bachelor partygoers, and Voila! The fruit cookies are a success. Men are swarming her like yellow jackets on watermelon, including Donovan Tate, the man on her mind since moving to Magnolia Acres the day before. The passion begins and things heat up… but Piper wonders if she should’ve stayed out of the kitchen.
I had fun writing my first humor-romance. Creating the quirky narrative and wacky characters was exhilarating, and I look forward to revisiting them in future sequels. Piper is already cooking up new magical adventures in my head.
I’ll know if my story is a finalist in the 1PlaceForRomance summer romance contest by June 15th. (Wish me luck!) Until then, I wait…
