Excerpt from Sidetracked, My 2017 NaNo Novel

sidetracked coverSidetracked is my 2017 NaNoWriMo novel. For those who don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, click here.

Sidetracked turned into something far different from what I had intended. I wanted to write a cozy mystery, but what I got was far from cozy. This moment is, however, really cute, so I decided to share it.

“I promise. With all my heart,” Vanessa said.

“Good.” Jasper gave her a final squeeze and pat on the back. “Love ya like a sister,” he whispered.

“Love ya like a big goombah,” she replied just as quietly.

“No fondling the detective,” Scott said with a laugh. “What brought on this tender moment? And do I get one?” He held out his arms.

Jasper hugged him, pulling him so tightly, Scott gasped.

“Not you, f*ckwit!” Scott laughed.

“I needed Scotty Snuggles,” Jasper teased.

“Get to work,” Scott replied.

“That’s the problem working with your best friend,” Vanessa said, giving Scott a hug.
