Snippet Sunday

Snippet Sunday

Weekend Writing Warriors





Sunday weekend writing warriors post 8 lines of something they are writing, something they are editing, or something that is already unleashed on the public. This is my second weekend post for Snippet Sunday.  
Check out this link and read the snippets from new and exciting authors.

Here's my snippet
Last week, pastry chef Lily Peradou discovered a man roaming the alley behind her shop.

"Why are you snooping around the alley?”
“I’ve been meaning to stop in and introduce myself.”
“Why would you want to introduce yourself?” She was strangely flattered by his interest. Perhaps he had heard about her elderflower or chocolate cherry cordial cupcakes. Her ego slipped away as she thought of the risk of speaking to a stranger in a deserted alley— especially, a handsome stranger with a charming smile.



Time for me to check out the other snippets. Last weeks snippets were exiting and thought provoking.

Peace, love, and chocolate.

  1. Two classic warnings:
    1. Don't take candy (chocolate) from strangers.
    2. Don't talk to strangers.
    A foretaste of great things to come?

  2. Your cupcake options had me salivating. I love a romance around food. I am looking forward to more.

  3. I wonder why he wanted to introduce himself too, that does sound a bit weird and scary.

  4. Regardless of his intentions, I'm pretty sure cupcakes aren't on his mind.

    They're on mine, though, just in time for breakfast---thanks, Zelda! :D

  7. Does seem strange that he's visiting the back alley when he's "been meaning to stop in and introduce himself." Something wrong with the front door? Great snippet, Zelda. :)

  8. Hooked. I want to know what does he want to introduce himself? Should she know him? Can't wait till next week ��

  9. If he wanted to introduce himself, why didn't he go inside the shop? Hmmm... intriguing, and LOL, I wish all strangers were handsome with a charming smile!! ;-)

  10. Mother said don't talk to strangers and she's not listening. A foreshadow of good or evil intent? You've captured this reader. Tell me more. and pass the dark chocolate.

  11. I'm glad her senses kicked about talking to a stranger in an alley. Can't wait to see how this interaction plays out.

  12. (Apologies if this is a duplicate post -- I don't think it took.)

    Flattery vs stranger danger. Tough call! But the line about "handsome stranger with a charming smile" makes me wonder if she's not in more danger from herself.

  13. I agree with Sarah W.- I don't think it's cupcakes he's after! But if he's charming and handsome then who cares? Very fun snippet. Hope she invites him in for chocolate.

  15. Between the cupcakes and the handsome stranger, I'm now hooked. Delicious!
