#OneLineSunday by #RSsos Lines about EXCITEMENT for a great start to the week. Enjoy!


For the first time Quin’s feeling of excitement was colored with a tinge of dread.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


But Laura was shaking her head slowly from side to side, that glint of mischief piquing Miller’s excitement even more. “I want you here,” she whispered.

Claire Gem


I watched the changing expressions on her face as she tried to show sympathy for her husband. But all I could see was radiance and hidden excitement.

Joanne Guidoccio


You were both bareback, and looked like a couple of free spirits galloping through the snow, laughing as it flew up around you. I was certain I could see your eyes flashing with excitement.

Kathryn Jane


Mia excitement bubbled over into Jake.

Marian Lanouette


Andie smiled, trying to contain the excitement of her brother coming around to help. She…

#OneLineSunday by #RSsos Lines about TREPIDATION for a great start to the week. Enjoy!


I gave in to Doctor Barnes and went in for a check-up last week. I figured he’d tell me to get some vitamins or something.

Jacquie Biggar


This woman had never shown trepidation. She was always the first to scurry up a ladder or rappel down the side of a building.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


When Miller turned and studied the long, narrow, barely foot-tall basement windows, the trepidation in his eyes was palpable, and terrifying.

“Let’s get you out of here,” he said solemnly.

Claire Gem


So it was an act. Underneath his calm exterior burned something else, possibly more passionate, and Susan was afraid of poking that smoldering interior.

Joanne Guidoccio


Tingling began in her fingertips and moved up her arms, colors danced and sparkled before her eyes, and a great weight lay…

Last month I posted on my own blog about Overused Words, finding those buzzards, and whacking them out.  I think it was Kathryn Jane who suggested perhaps this would make a good topic for our SOS blog. So, here we go with some repetition, but also new material.

As I worked on the last parts of editing for ACT OF BETRAYAL, Book 3 The Second Chances Series (which will be my 6th published book has now gone to my editor. WhooHoo!), I bore down on searching out overused words.

My original list of 45 words came from Margie Lawson, an awesome writing teacher. She’s the first person who suggested to me perhaps we overuse certain words in our writing. My list has grown to approximately 75 words and phrases. As I used Margie’s list, I stumbled on new words I overused in different books.

I don’t remember which book, but,

#OneLineSunday by #RSsos Lines about CELEBRATION for a great start to the week. Enjoy!


Since this one is extra special, I would like to take you to dinner sometime soon and really celebrate. Love, Allan

Vicki Batman


“Trust soldier-boy to get here in time for the glory,” he chortled. “Come in and meet your daughter, man. Congrats.”

Jacquie Biggar


On the reservation when a man and woman decide to wed, a ceremony is scheduled, the couple marries, they have a celebration then they have sex. Simple.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


“That’s right. Let’s celebrate,” Deidre said, lifting her glass. “To your coming home. A new job, and a new life.”

Laura hesitated, meeting her father’s tired gaze as they clinked glasses.

Claire Gem


First, we had to get through tonight’s dress rehearsal for Monday’s grand opening. David and Susan would prepare a special meal for five of my closest…

Have you ever attended the RWA National Conference?

I’ve been twice, RWA2014, and RWA2016, but I won’t be there this year because, well, reality. Between airfare, accommodation, and conference registration it would cost this Canadian about three grand, and that’s almost three month’s rent!

But as we slip into July, and the buzz has begun, I find myself thinking about my “best” conference moments.

It’s an incredible feeling to be in the same room as the authors you’ve been reading for years. Authors who have moved you to tears, made your heart swell with happiness, or perhaps inspired you.

I am grateful:

For laughter with Sam, AJ, Beverly, Stephanie, and Debi.

For time spent with Loreth and Toni.

For finally meeting my Sisterhood of Suspense peeps in person.

For the first ever meeting of the Seasoned Romance group.

For the incredible fangirl moments when I nearly brushed elbows…

#OneLineSunday by #RSsos Lines about FREEDOM for a great start to the week. Enjoy!


With his wrists in cuffs, Rafe ran both hands over his shorn head. He craved water, a pain pill, and freedom.

Sharon Wray
When Next We Meet (work in progress)


If I delivered the burgers to Mom and made for the restroom, then grabbed a gift bag and passed through the breezeway gate around the garage to the alley…freedom.

Vicki Batman


His dad died without ever tasting freedom again, and Jason had to live with the black pit of his guilt.

Jacquie Biggar


“AJ, I don’t want to change who you are. I would never stifle your spirit, take your independence, or hamper your freedom. Those are the things that make you who you are.”

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


Learning today that Angie and Miller had been over—really over—for at least the past several months…
