The “look” challenge!

Posted August 4, 2012 by kate in Excerpts, THE BETTER TO SEE YOU, Transplanted Tales / 3 Comments

I’ve been tagged by author Macy Beckett. According to the rules of the game, I’m supposed to search my current work in progress for the first usage of the word “look,” paste the surrounding paragraph into my blog, and tag as many authors as possible. Seeing as how The Better to See You (Transplanted Tales #2) just went to copy editing, it’s technically still in progress, so here is a little excerpt from Chapter 1 (slightly edited because some of my characters are total potty mouths):


“I’ll f*****g kill you for this, Lavender!” he screamed, his voice cracking. “You’re going down, you half-assed fairy!”

“Bring it on, half-pint,” I called back, emphasizing my lack of concern with a syrupy sweet smile and a one-finger salute.

If James Charming had looked like he was going to have an apoplexy before, my f***-you-very-much response to his threats now made him look like his head was going to explode. A strangled scream of fury burst from him as he surged forward, but a shadowy black figure in a fedora and trench coat swooped into his path, stopping him dead in his tracks.


I tag: Cecy Robson, Amanda Carlson, Carey Corp, Jen J. Danna, and Anna Hamilton. (I’d tag Julie Ann Walker, too, but Jules is currently in a writing cave, slavishly working on her next book!)
