Sneak Peek: Poor Florida Cracker

Well, folks, I said that I would share a sneak peek with you of my current work in progress, Poor Florida Cracker, which is due to be published this upcoming fall. For every like or comment I’ve gotten on my blog in the last two days, I was going to share one sentence. Understandably, I let my blog go stale for quite a bit of time, so the interaction isn’t quite what it used to be. This would have only allowed for five shared sentences. My Facebook isn’t really interacted with as much as before, either, so I’ll be adding on the one like I also got on Facebook. Six sentences from the first chapter of my work in progress. Are you ready? Here we go:

What was it that made this town so simple minded? So cruel? I’d been the butt end of their jokes- young and old, rich and poor alike- since the day I was born. People around town called me names like ‘incest hillbilly’ and ‘backwoods whore.’ The later always makes me laugh, considering the fact I’m still a virgin. Regretfully, the first name holds some small truth.

Please keep in mind that this is still a rough draft, and the final version may be altered in some way. I’ll share more of this upcoming title with you next Tuesday – keep the involvement going! For every like and/or comment I receive on my blog, I will share one sentence. For every person who signs up to follow my blog, I’ll share two! This time I’ll be grabbing my snippets from the beginning of Chapter Three!


In other news, check back with me here on Pen Possessed tomorrow for the first part of a simple social experiment I’ve got under way revolving around the theroy that where you live and/or where you have previously lived in your lifetime effects who you are/who you become. We’ll be taking a look at the basic statistics of the places I’ve lived, and then we’ll see what I personally remember about them. It’s a three part series, and should be lots of fun! Also underway will be some interesting articles about what is going on in the independent community, some advice for writers, and numerous other fun things.

Make sure you don’t miss any of the fun by signing up to follow my blog. You can do that by clicking the link on the right side of this page. See you on the flip side, lovelies!
