In Honor of Mistletoe-- my contribution to the Kissing Day Blogfest.

Having to choose which kissing scene to post for the blogfest was maybe the hardest decision I've had to make in a long time concerning my own writing. I finally settled on this one though, because of the shorts I've been writing at The Writer's Block. It just seemed fitting to keep the theme.

This scene isn't currently found in The Book of Generations, but only because the book became too long and so I had to ruthlessly end it before I got here. That was another difficult decision.

  2. Thanks!

    Yeah, it's kind of sad. I blame him, totally. He knew she was married. He had no right to kiss her! Shame on him!

    ahem. Can't wait to read your excerpt!
