Thank you so much to everybody who made FORTUNE COOKIES a success! I was so pleased with the reaction it recieved!
You guys are seriosly amazing.
So, a couple of people have expressed intrest in a teaser for my new story. I still haven't written as much of it as I want. I've written through the 13 chapter. But I want to get a little further until I start posting it regularly.
I estimate it will probably be around the end of October, maybe the second to last week of October that I will put the new story up.
If I'm not already on your author's alert and you want to be notified when I post this new story, go to my profile and add me!! :)
This story is going to be a little more mature than some of my other stories.
No, there aren't explicit sex scenes or anything like that, but there is 'adult language' in the story.
Now, it's not really horrible language. There will be no f-bombs. That's just not how I roll. But the content of the story is geared towards a more mature audience. It's not tasteless and ridiculous, but it is a story about adults and they act like adults.
The subject matter is a more mature, but there are still lighthearted parts. There will be A LOT of emo chapters in the new story... But it's about unrequited love, and that constitutes emo chapters. Deal with it.
I don't really want to say much more and give away more of the story...but here's the preview.
I hope you guys enjoy this sneak peak of...
Screw You, eHarmony
And somewhere between sharing peanut-butter and jelly sandwiches when I first moved to Forks in the first grade and sharing secrets and spit in junior high, I fell in love with her—and she fell in love with seemingly every other boy in the great state of Washington…besides me.
But I've waited patiently for her.
And so that fateful day, when she declared that she was tired of dating duds, I saw my window of opportunity.
I would step up and be her knight in shining armor. I wanted to tell her how I felt. As she went on about relationships and dating in general, I formulated my plan—but I hadn't realized that she would crush that plan to smithereens.
"Hey, have you seen those commercials for that new website?" She asked, leaning her head against my shoulder as we watched TV together late that fateful night.
"No," I told her, running my fingers through her long, brownish red hair.
"Well it—" she began to say but her words were cut off as her eyes wandered back to the screen, "Oh here it is, watch it and tell me what you think!"
So I watched it.
The commercial showed a perfectly happy couple, kissing and hugging while standing under apple trees. The smooth, generic announcer voice came over the speakers, "Are you tired of dating? Are you looking for a deeper connection?"
I wanted to scream 'YES', but I refrained and watched her commercial.
I really wasn't paying attention to the ridiculous dating site commentary, more the happy couples prancing across the screen. That could be us. That would be us, but then she turned to me and said, "My friend Angela signed up for that sight and the guy they matched her with is really nice, they're thinking of getting married."
And then she dropped the bomb, "I'm going to sign up. I'm tired of being alone."
Oh no. Hell no. My girl was going to find a boyfriend on the Internet?
But, I couldn't stop her.
