Tis the weekend for patriotism! Canada Day on Friday, and Independence Day on Monday! I searched through my published books for six patriotic sentences. I couldn’t find any, but I did notice that more than one set of characters enjoy our national pastime. Baseball! I wonder where they get that.…blush Here are six from my book Fine Print:
“The Braves made it fifteen innings–that run in the end was bullshit and you know it.” Derek spoke into the phone, using his free hand around Kara’s waist to keep her beside him amid the throngs of stadium evacuees. “No way; keep your Angels, man. The Braves are gonna pull out of this slump.”
Kara liked to listen to Derek talk. His voice was commanding, but not abrasive, and low enough to vibrate against her.
I’ll have you know that I don’t like the Braves. At all. But thanks to my cover art request error, I ended up with an Atlanta skyline (I got my books mixed up, okay?) I had to change Derek from a Rangers fan to a Braves fan during edits. I can’t tell you how much that hurt me (Apologies to Braves fan). In consolation, his name is Derek, in homage to the best shortstop in history. sigh
Anyway, enjoy your holiday weekend, and have fun reading the plethora of SSS Posts, Â all listed at the official website.
