What Happened this Past Week

I'm still tweaking Killer Stilettos. A lot of chapters have been murdered and chucked. A lot have been re-done with a small hint of what they were before I began changes. Friday, I left off at Chapter 19.

Also, I've been working on expanding Time on Her Side, a sci-fi, about a middle-aged woman who is visited by her older self and is given a second chance to do her life over, in order to save the world. But things don't always go right.


Sunday, I spent a big part of my day with my 93 and 94 year old grandparents. After, I had dinner with two of my daughters and the Glowstick.


And when I've been able to, I've been making random bookcovers with Power Point and Paint.


Next week, I plan on writing several posts about my childhood sweeties, my first kiss, and a wild first date on Valentine's Day. Oh and something about my grandparents. Their love is still cooking. Anyway, I have  several stories to tell in honor of Valentine's Day.

So to jump start this, I thought I'd give you a kissing scene today:

“Lila,” Julio said, suddenly floating beside me. The last time I had seen him was in the otherworld after I had momentarily died. “I’ve been waiting all day to see you.” He pulled me into him. We really shouldn’t have been doing this. Gram had told me astral projection could be dangerous.
My body melted against his firm one, but guilt ate at me. “We really shouldn’t be doing this. Gram would be upset,” I said chewing on my lower lip.
Julio ignored my comment and maneuvered me underneath his floating body, wrapping his arms around my waist.
Butterflies exploded into the pit of my stomach sending shivers all through me. “Besides, you’ve already picked up a hitch—”
His mouth washed over mine.
Instinctively, I closed my eyes. “Hiker,” I said into his mouth before his tongue probed mine. My hands had a mind of their own and they roamed the muscles on his back. The air grew hot in the little space between us.
His arms moved like vines up and down my back to the sides of my waist, and then to the top of my bottom. His fingers drummed against it as if thinking to go further. Like a suction cup, his lips held onto mine and his tongue squirmed around mine. One hand slid down to my right butt cheek. Oh my. Electricity shot through me waking up desires I had forgotten about.

Gram appeared in my mind. Her finger wagged at me. Oh dear. I grabbed both of Julio’s hands and moved them to my waist. After, I pulled my head back just enough to loosen my lips from his.
I hope everyone has a great Monday and a great week. I'll be reading other blogs off and on all day and throughout the week.
What is everyone else up to?
Hugs and chocolate,
Shelly

    1. Time On Her Side was a pic I found on Photobucket and a friend put my name and title to it. However, I'll be remaking that cover, too. I've a few ideas.

  4. All that sounds great. I hope you didn't mind me glossing over the luuvey stuff. A bit too torrid for me.

  7. I enjoyed Time on her Side.

    Some steamy romance ahead if the kissing scene is an indicator.
