BONUS sneak peek at Hating Jeremy Walters

Thanks for the likes and shares, folks! Here’s a paragraph from the first conversation between the hero and heroine, Jeremy and Natalie:

[Jeremy to Natalie] “You saw me drooling on the footpath.”

She blinked.

He offered a small smile. “Let’s start over. Hi.”

“Let’s not. Goodbye.” She spun toward the door.

“Is that my phone you’re holding?”

Natalie turned back.

He breathed a small sigh of relief. “What are you doing here, anyway?”

The phone flew his way. He fumbled it against his chest, one-handed.

She crossed her arms. “You still had me as your emergency contact, and I couldn’t reach Steph or Mike.” Her eyes flickered down. “I wasn’t sure about calling your dad.”

Natalie Groves was meant for great things. Preferably youth ministry with a side gig as an M&M connoisseur.

But half a year after her fiancé left, Natalie’s evangelist father was diagnosed with cancer. Her grand plans evaporated…and God has seemed disappointed ever since.

Six years later a church internship presents Natalie a chance at her destiny, but she needs a job to work around it. And the only offer is worse than a life sentence of tofu.

Six years ago, Jeremy ‘Jem’ Walters left Charlottesville, Virginia to escape his father, God, and heartbreak over Natalie.

Now he’s back in town, a committed Christian, and desperate for help with his infant son and troubled teenage niece.

When Natalie and Jem join forces, sparks fly. But will they be burned in the process?

Wanted: your ridiculous/funny/embarrassing stories

Gathering inspiration for book #2: do you have any anecdotes about ridiculous newlywed fights? 🙂

As a single gal myself, I plan to put my imagination to good use, but it would be awesome to be able to draw inspiration from some real-life couples.

I’m totally willing to offer my own anecdote in exchange, but fair warning, most of mine revolve around:
1. Gross-out farm stories
2. Funny stuff from my journo days
3. My weird brothers. (Love you boys!)

So share your stories, your friends’ stories, that-weird-lady-from-down-the-street’s stories!

If you’d like to share, shoot me a message at jessicaeveringhamwriting@gmail.com.

Writing is always a team effort. 🙂 Can’t wait to hear from you!
