A couple of months ago, my editor at Torquere suggested I write a bit of bonus material for Just Perfect. Something from Cody's point of view that showed what he might see in Draven. At first I had reservations, but when I started, I felt...good. So good that the piece came out 300 words over word count.
It reminded me how much I really do love the sweet and fluffy stories. I've been in a dark place lately and I think my stories have been reflecting that (in really fun and twisty ways), but this tiny little excerpt made me smile. The combination of my editor's suggestion and the card my friend sent me a while back is probably what got me going on One Good Year. It's funny how events sometimes come together in odd and perfect ways.
Not that I have any plans to abandon my twisty stories. ;)
We had to cut the word count down to 500 before posting it on the Torquere social group, but I got permission to post the original version on my site. You can read it here.
I hope you like it.
