Flickering lights from plastic #reindeer sparkled and danced on the snow. The old neighborhood #mutt paced the street. #Silent. Matted fur, gnarled face. He dutifully kept a sharp watch on playful children. Protecting them from lurking shadows.#vsschristmas #CleanWIP #vss365— Emily Yager (@TheEmilyYager) December 2, 2020
Is it wrong to have a dog in every romance book I write? *asking for me* 😂 Please don’t tell my cat though.— Kelly Scott (@kdk99ag) December 2, 2020
Noisy crowds. Christmas music blaring. A man approached. #Silent. A large #mutt trotted at his side. Judging by his rugged looks, he was no stranger to a gym. A Celtic #reindeer tattoo on his forearm. Gravelly accent. Asked if she wanted to dance.#vss365 #CleanWIP #vsschristmas— AK Kilburn (@ak_kilburn) December 2, 2020

(This is likely the lengthiest teaser I’ve shared so far from this WIP. I’ve not yet released the name of it for public consumption.)
Dana excitedly told us how much she loved the book already and that she’d just picked it up the day before, hoping to find a way to handle the stress from an awful predicament she and her husband Mark were dealing with at the time.
“It started early Friday morning about three weeks ago. We woke to a horrific sound. Our dog Rocky must’ve reckoned it was after his food. I thought he was about to scratch a hole through the door. We worried he’d jump the fence if we let him out.”
“What happened next, Dana?” I asked.
“Well, I thought it might be a delivery truck at first, but it sounded more like a tank. Mark said he didn’t see any reason someone would have a tank out there, but he wrapped himself up appropriately and said if he wasn’t back in ten minutes, I should call the police and let them know we’re under attack.”
“What,” I interjected.
Dana continued. “That’s exactly what I said. Then he told me he’s just kidding but ensured me that one look at Rocky would send even the worst of enemies trucking. Mark growled and then added ‘I’ll be back before you can spell onomatopoeia backwards.’ ‘I hope that horrible noise is gone long before then,’ I tell him. ‘I love you, baby cakes.’ Oh wow. Are you going to edit this?”
Dana has such a soothing voice. It’s ideal for radio. I reminded her the show is aired live, then urged her to continue.
“Oh my.” She chuckled, obviously a little embarrassed. “Well, Mark returned about fifteen minutes later…
