I’d like to introduce you to Lucy, the main character in my first novel Lucy’s Choice. The following excerpt is directly from the unedited version of my novel. I expect the novel out at the end of spring 2022. Watch for more excerpts of this novel.
Lucy was walking down the street with dry-cleaning in one hand and a hot cup of coffee in the other. With her hands full, she tried to open the heavy glass door of her office with her foot and one finger. Luckily, a man was coming out of the office and held the door for her. She ran across the marble floor, almost slipping to catch the elevator to the third-floor office. Stepping off the elevator, Lucy stumbled her way down the hall to the office.
“You’re late did you pick up my dress for the realtor awards dinner tonight?” Colleen barked. “Did you pick up my coffee? Did you put creamer in it? Vanilla creamer?”
“Yes, yes, and yes,” Lucy said, rolling her brown eyes and making her voice sound extra cheerful.
Lucy’s Choice comes back from the editor on August 1st: I can hardly wait. Then we need to have cover art selected and then well, just so, many things when you are doing it all yourself, I feel excited and a little overwhelmed. There are more edits, line edits, and copyediting. Then off to the printer and then proofreading. And that’s just to get the book ready for you guys. I hope you like it as much as I do.
Watch for more glimpses of this story. Next time we’ll meet Dave, Lucy’s love interest?
