I decided to share one of my favorite thrills:He held my hand tight as he pulled me closer. Our faces were inches away from each other. He hesitated and I panicked. I turned and started to walk away, but he still have a strong grip on my hand. When I turned back to tell him to let go, I didn’t have a chance to get the words out. His lips were on mine, no hesitation this time. My surprise prevented me from kissing him back at first. He started to pull away and I panicked again, but this time from fear he would stop. I kissed him back. I was keenly away of the the way his lips tasted, all smooth and wet and with a hint of peppermint. The power of suggestion had been working over time in my imagination and I laughed. This time he succeeded in pull away. “What’s so funny?” “I thought you would taste like peppermint and you do.” He smiled and kissed me again, letting go of my hand to wrap his arms around my waist. *From my JuNoWriMo Novel.
There is nothing more thrilling than a first kiss. What do you find thrilling?

Addicted to New Adult
Agent Suzie Townsend invites you to join her in a discussion on New Adult from June 24th to July 16th on her blog, Confessions.
I am currently querying a New Adult Romance and writing another. The characters I write never seem to quite fit in full on adult, now they have a spot in the literary world.
Miami Heat wins the 2013 NBA Championship. Not a fan of either team in the game, but Game 6 reminded why basketball can be an exciting game. It was awesome. Game 7 had to end the way it did. Plus, Tim Duncan and 5 rings doesn’t sound right.
It was a movie full weekend.Man of Steel Fast & Furious 6 Gangster Squad World War Z The Impossible
One awesome, one amazing, one great, one inspiring and one failed to meet expectations. Which movie was what?
James Gandolfini died last week at the age of 51. I loved The Sopranos, but I’ve still only seen season 3-6. I was late to the party. People have said that Tony Soprano ruined him for other rolls, but I disagree. I think it was the complexity of Tony Soprano and the way Mr. Gandolfini played him made other roles he played compelling because they were simple. See The Mexican (compassion and a little funny) and True Romance (pure violence). Also, Gandolfini is such a great name.
