Time for the Sunday Fiction Post-up! Come share your current work-in-progress here. Last week I’d hoped to finish my novella but sometimes life catches up to you and the writing has to take a back seat. So this past week I only got in 1000 words, but this week’s goal is to finish it.
I invite you to post your title, genre/sub-genre and the first half of page 31 or the beginning of chapter 5 (your choice) of your current work-in-progress. So a good 100-150 words. No need for critique, just a little writer love.

“Gross, I hope you washed the sheets I’m lying on.”
“You’ll never know,” Val sang. Autumn grimaced. Val held a red halter dress up to her tall, lean frame and asked, “You like?”
Have a great Sunday! And Write on!
