Weekend Writing Warriors Post

Good day, my “Weekend Writing Warrior” friends.  Thank you so much for your encouraging words last week.  I’ve decided to share the story I’m currently working on with you this week.  Here is the background on my eight “electrifying” sentences.  This comes from the first chapter of the third book of the “Liliana Series.”  In case you haven’t read book one yet, this series is a twisted romance, full of suspense, deceit and hot and steamy passion.  Book 2 ends with a major event that I can’t go into details on since it hasn’t been released, but imagine my protagonist feeling completely devastated and confused.  Antonio is your new book lover and I’ll give you this much information, he is hot!  He has dark curly hair, chiseled cheeks and literally will make your mouth water.  See book 1 for a full description of his sexy self. 

Hoping that you enjoy this, let me know what you think and hoping that you all have a phenomenal week!  🙂



I slowly turned and gazed at Elena and the rest of the family without saying a word.  Not a tear fell from my eyes as I sat staring at them.  My eyelids blinked, notifying me that I was in fact awake.  I turned very slowly and looked up at Antonio.  His eyes appeared both apologetic and eager, as he waited for my response without saying a word.  The truth was, I didn’t know what my response would be.  I needed direction that no one in the room was trustworthy enough to give me.  I silently closed my eyes and lowered my head folding my hands in my lap and asked for direction from the only being I felt credible enough to guide me.




Don’t forget to stop by the rest of the warriors pages.  🙂





Also Book 1 of the “Liliana” series is now available for download.

  4. I felt her loneliness and sadness. One thing- you used ‘slowly’ close together. Maybe find another word to express what’s going on.

  5. Wow! You packed so much information in so few sentences, and it was seamless. It never felt like an infodump. I especially like this line, “My eyelids blinked, notifying me that I was in fact awake.” Nice glimpse at her character. Good 8! 🙂
