Six Sentence Sunday, 9/2/12

At last, my News of Awesome can be told: I sold a novella to Entangled! It’s the New Year’s Eve story I’ve been excerpting here at Six Sentence Sunday. (Although, for the curious, you can’t go back and look for the old posts–Entangled prefers no excerpts be posted until release day, so I took them down.) Tentatively titled, What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?, it will come out in December. Entangled is super-hot right now and I can’t believe I sold to them. Squeee! I’m so excited!
In the meantime, here’s another bit from my Playa del Carmen story, Love to Love You. This is in the heroine’s POV as she talks with the hero. She’s just told him he shouldn’t play dumb about how to handle women — he’s a smart guy with a successful business:

“I’m a smart guy in some ways,” he allowed with a nod. “But there are different kinds of smart. Also, there are different kinds of stupid,” he said with a rueful laugh. “And I definitely have the kind of stupid that makes women unhappy.”

He really believed it. He was good-looking, successful, and smart, and he was certain he didn’t have what it took to maintain a real relationship.

    Oh, Linda!!! Congrats on the sale. Awesome news. I had computer issues last week, though I did make it around to read, just wasn’t able to comment. Things all better now so I can leave my “mark”. VERY sexy snippet last week and most insightful today. Keep up the terrific work.

    Linda, that's amazing. Congrats! I'm looking forward to being able to read it!I'm not sure what to think about this character, on one hand he sounds cocky and arrogant, but with that last line you manage to make him sweet and self-deprecating. It will be interesting to see what path you take with him.
