It’s summer now, right?
With that comes a push to finish A Royal Internship in draft and then edited forms. I hope to be completely through this book by the end of the month so I can move on to another project. I’ll still be working on The Road to Christmas (which we should definitely have done for this Christmas) and working with my awesome group of writer friends on their projects. So it’s very busy.
Because of this, and everything else going on in the world, I am going to scale back this month’s blog posts to once per week at most. This is so I can ensure my real life obligations are attended to (including a new Mystery/Thriller book club!!!) in a way that I am happy with.
So this month, you can still expect some blog posts, but you can also expect two chapters a week of A Royal Internship over on my Wattpad profile. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I’m enjoying writing it.
I hope you enjoy the tidbits I’m going to share with you and I will see you on the other side of this editing! Fortunately, everyone’s staying home, so my unkempt hair and frantic attire will not be out of place 🙂
As always, thanks so much for reading,
Excerpt – A Royal Internship Chapter Eight
“Okay, can I have a word with you guys?” I stood up and closed the gap between us. “I’m right here, so can someone fill Janet’s best friend in on what exactly you two are fighting about?”
Janet’s mouth dropped open and she turned to Clarence while blabbering a bunch of incoherent baby-talk.
“Oh no,” he raised his hands. “I’m not touching that one. You explain it to her. Then, if she doesn’t tell you that you’re crazy, you can come talk to me.” Faster than he could have repeated that sentence, he raced up the stairs and disappeared into Janet’s office.
I turned back to Janet, who looked white as a sheet. “Why don’t you sit down and I’ll get you some water?” I gently helped her sit on the couch and got a glass of water from the kitchen.
I gave her a minute to drink the water. “So, what is it Clarence thinks is a terrible idea?”
“I’m not sure you’ll like it,” she tried to take a sip of water out of a glass I was pretty sure was empty.
I didn’t say anything as I watched the wheels turning in Janet’s head. That was never a good sign with her.
“I have an idea,” she finally spoke to me. “And I’m not sure you’ll like it.”
“Yes, you mentioned that.” I shook my head. “The question was what your idea was.”
