Sproles from The Write Conversation

EDITOR’S COMMENT: Authors are competing with a zillion other books to capture readers’ attention. Tough job. You and I know how tough. Cindy talks of the change as a result of opening the flood gate of new novels.. Fluff is out.

LOVE UNLIMITED 

FOR YOUR READING ENJOYMENT

Seth and Pamela met on a plane. Many people meet strangers on planes. Their introduction was different. She sensed his pain of a broken life. He was unlike any other man she’d met, and later said, “He turned something on inside me that won’t stop.” LOVE REVISITED is Seth and Pamela’s love story.

“Miss Brighton left me instructions she expected to see you. My name is Tony. Do you wish for me to announce your arrival.?”

Seth recognized the genesis of the sweat on the bridge of his nose. Panic. Raw panic. With his attention centered on the broad sidewalk, he hunted for relief in the sea of people streaming from here to there. The aroma of a nearby street vendor’s chorizo tacos failed to diminish the smells of pedestrians pressed together with their applied scents. Most carried a tote bag or briefcase clutched to their chest as if to discourage a thief grabbing their handbag. Seth was surprised they were mute save speaking into a cell phone. He imagined their focused faces announced they were late for their destiny
