INNOCENT TEARS has been re-released.
It has enjoyed another full edit and an awesome new cover.

Here's another little snippet.

THANK YOU

Advice is what we ask for when we already 
know the answer, but wish we didn't.”





Flynn looked from Teresa to William. Deep lines of worry appeared on William’s face, and he slowly nodded. Flynn rubbed his face in disbelief. William reached over and placed his hand comfortingly on Flynn’s shoulder. Flynn’s eyes stung and he couldn’t quite face them, but quietly asked, “What happened?”
“Cancer,” he heard Teresa saying, and for the first time Flynn thought he was able to detect some emotions.
With his back hunched, elbows on his knees, and his hands folded in front of his mouth, he sorted his thoughts – cancer! One tiny word, yet it had a devastating effect on him. Flynn gave a sudden curse, then leaned back into the chair as he rubbed his eyes with his fingers.
“Sorry, son,” William tried to comfort him.
“Why are you telling me now?” he asked without looking.
There was a touch of concern in Teresa’s voice. “There’s something else we need to discuss with you.”

    1. Really glad you're liking the story, Chelle. There's more to come and it'll all makes sense.

  2. My thought exactly, why are they telling him now that it's over instead of telling him before she died so that he could at least say good by?

  3. "One tiny word, yet it had a devastating effect on him." Indeed so. Waiting patiently to find out what else they have in store for him...

  5. Glad to see at least a hint of emotion from Teresa, and what a wonderfully cruel cliffhanger you ended with! Hurry up, next Sunday!

  6. Nice to see that there might be a touch of humanity in her. (I do love the bit of role reversal here, that she's the emotions-under-control one and William is the more caring/nurturing sort.

    1. Thank you, PT. Yes, I did have a certain person in mind when I wrote "William". I like his character.

  7. Oh, wow, and if they started by discussing cancer, the next revelation will probably be even more shattering. Enjoyed the excerpt, really held my attention!

  11. Now you've left us hanging! Really great use of body language to communicate the emotion of the scene. We have to wait another week now, right?

  12. So Teresa does have SOME empathy and emotion in her. Who knew? But oh, what a way to leave us! Heart breaking and ominous all at once. Love the line about one word but holds a devastating affect. Nicely done. I wonder what else they could have to tell him, I fear it's not good news either.

  13. I just said, "Oh f***" out loud at the last sentence. Well done, love it when I have a visceral reaction to something I read.
