Exciting news! Here’s Garden Clippings #1

Hi everyone, I have decided to occasionally upload excerpts from my new novel.  I thought this would be a fun way to keep myself accountable, as well as, get some feedback from my friends and family (hopefully future readers).

I am sure that most of you have heard the expression, “Write what you know,” so be sure to be looking for things that you might recognize.  As this continues, I will just label the title Garden Clippings and whichever number excerpt it is, and put it in the “Garden Clippings” category (the story is set mainly around the happenings at my main character’s garden store).

So without further delay here is Garden Clippings #1. I hope you enjoy!

Garden Clippings #1

She noticed that her workers all looked like they were dragging.  “Hey guys, I can handle it from here if you all want to clock out and call it a day.”  Mary looked grateful, and Joe looked relieved, but James seemed otherwise.  “I am not going anywhere till we get to the bottom of this.”  Janelle looked all around and was at first confused by what he meant.  “Really James, it’s not a big deal.  I can manage.  You need to get home and feed Daphne and Floyd before they tear the house apart.”  James’ two Siamese cats were beyond what could be considered spoiled, and when their routine was disrupted by even a few minutes, they let their dismay be known by way of random acts of terror throughout James’ home.
