Weekend Writing Warriors #8SUNDAY “It’s Almost Christmas!”

This ChristmasInTooDeepCVRARewww

Wow, Christmas is coming right up!  It’s a little scary how fast time goes by, isn’t it?  Well I decided to continue sharing this story with you, even though, “Liliana Book 2-In Too Deep,” is out now.  I can’t wait to get to that one!  It has more twists than book one, but we are still in holiday mode, so I want to go on with this amazing story!

Has everyone been ordering stuff and wondering where it is?  I still have one package that I’m waiting for, but there is nothing quite like those hand delivered “big” surprises, so I wanted to share this one with you and reminder the story in it’s entirety is available for download on Amazon.  😉


“I have a surprise for all of you.” Sherrie said, standing in front of us smiling widely.

I glanced over at my mother. Sherrie was interrupting not only her favorite soap opera, but also her cooking. I stood up and walked over to stand beside my mother in case she tried to kill her.

Sherrie moved to the front door.

“Get ready, for the best Christmas present ever.” Sherrie exclaimed and opened the door.


What did you think?  Sorry for teasing you, but we only get eight sentences.  Check out more of this holiday story here, or get Liliana Book Two, “In Too Deep” here.

And don’t forget to visit all the phenomenal Weekend Writing Warriors here.

Love you guys, stay safe this holiday season!

  2. The last line of dialogue is ripe with possibility! Great snippet.


  3. Fun snippet, Neva. I have major doubts regarding the huge surprise. Best wishes on your second book. It’s on my next TBR list.

    ‘in case she tried to kill her.’ I laughed at that. The sounds like a great book.

    Sherrie doesn’t seem to know her audience too well, which makes me worried for this gift. One person’s ‘amazing’ is another’s ‘awful.’

  10. Yay for teasing! I get the distinct feeling the present will not, in fact, be the best Christmas present ever. Or at the very least that it will not seem to be on first appearance. Interesting how those things go. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!

    Terrific build-up for a surprise, somehow though I wonder if the surprise will not be so welcomed by all?
