Meeting the Press -Snippet Sunday

It’s Snippet Sunday, when participating writers share 8-10 sentences from their work in progress! Check out more snippets from fellow authors at

I’m alternating snippets between here and the blog for my *other pen name.*

This might be the final snippet from Visions, my very first novel which will soon be relaunched. Maybe one more, we’ll see, but it’s about ready to go.

A quick synopsis of Visions:

A movie star becomes a real-life hero…

Actor Trenton Dane is researching his next role when he bumps into a beautiful stranger—and suddenly develops her psychic powers. She disappears in the crowd, but they must find one another again for Trenton to fulfill premonitions of their future, as well as to save Glory and her child from danger. He will fail at one of these tasks.

Setup for the snippet: Last time, Trenton was reunited with his mystery woman at the movie premiere and discovered her name was Glory. We finished with: “So,” he said to head that off, “you’re coming to the after party.”

“No…I didn’t know there was one,” she said, those sparkling green eyes widening.

“You do now.”


We pick up a couple sentences later, where Glory gets her first taste of life in the spotlight while they are escorted from the theater…


Barnacle clusters of fans still clung desperately to the ship of departing celebrity, and screams roared in Glory’s ears while the flash-pop of cameras turned night into noon.

“Who’s the lady, Trenton?” one of the paparazzi called out while the entourage group attempted a speed record for getting to the waiting limo.

“I wish I knew,” he muttered under his breath.

He turned to Glory, who managed to both blink furiously and appear wide-eyed at the same time, and gestured to the press who were poised as though awaiting the announcement of the century.

“I’m Glory,” she managed. “From Mentone Beach.”

Laughter rolled out from behind the cameras. “What’s your relationship to Trenton Dane, Glory from Mentone Beach?”

She froze in place, and Trenton winked conspiratorially at the reporter before helping her duck into the limo, shutting the door behind them to soundproof the living, breathing media frenzy. Without hesitation, the limo pulled away and slid into neon-lit nightlife of the Sunset strip.


…What do you think?
