Hump Day Hook #10



For more Hump Day fun, go here:)

I know; I've been a bad blogger lately.  Blame Molly; she's taken over the brain with her editing.

Here's a snippet of my latest, book #3 in the Anderson Chronicles, Off The Clock.


Austin drummed his fingers on his desktop, and as the door to his office opened, picked up a sheaf of papers and waved them at her.  “Care to explain this?”
            Cara’s complexion paled, but she continued to look him in the eye.  “The snack bar is in need of an overhaul.  The counter is rotting, the windows are cracked, and there’s no air conditioning out there.  One of the microwaves needs replaced, and shelves need to be built in the storeroom.”  She crossed the room as she spoke and settled herself in the oak chair in front of the desk.  “Those are the estimates from bidders.  I told them you’d make a decision by the end of the week.  Repairs are set to begin at the end of the month.”
            Austin struggled to contain his rising temper.  “And how did you come by this information?” he demanded.  “I hired you to straighten out my office, not to start running the place.”

This book has been edited and is off to the proofreader!  And I'm still waiting on cover art, lol:)
