For the month of July, I will participate in the Boomer Lit Friday Blog Hop. What does this mean? This summer a group of authors, whose novels could be considered “Boomer Fiction,” will post short excerpts from their work.
BOOMER FICTION means novels where the main characters ages are considered part of the baby boomer generation — folks born between 1946 and 1964.
If you’re 49 or older, you just might find a connection to the characters in these novels. And if you’re younger, take a peek anyway. Life experience brings a whole new dimension to the world of fiction.
THE HOURGLASS excerpts are below. To read excerpts from more great boomer lit, click on the link at the end…
READY TO GO TO WEEK FOUR OF THE HOP?
Set up: During CJ’s first work session with Brenda, she pushes in a way he isn’t accustomed to, leading him to one conclusion…
During their difficult conversations when they first met, Brenda had only seemed equipped with a transmission which pushed her in one direction: forward. This conversation confirmed his notion. “Are you always so…so contrary?”
“I can be. Do you always avoid answering revealing questions?”
The phone rang. CJ started to walk over to answer but stopped next to her.
She lifted her chin and gazed at him.
“Are you going to help me solve this character’s problem?”
Her voice softened. “Of course I will.”
“Thank you.” He continued toward the ringing phone.
“Guess you were saved by the bell, huh?”
He peered over his shoulder and, once again, was left powerless by the way she looked at him. “Me? Maybe you’re the one saved.”
However, in the short hour with this woman, CJ had no doubt it was him.
