Saturday Spankings - hopefully!

Welcome to Saturday Spankings! I love that we can share news about our writing here and I do have something to share – it’s almost here! The forth book, Cassie’s River Living, will be out on September 3rd. I received the cover just a few days ago and I truly love it. It seems to capture the peace and tranquility Tom is always dreaming of, but peace and tranquility are sometime hard to find when Cassie and Sue get together.



This snippet takes place later in the day from by last snippet. On one of their regular walks the girls explore a house under construction and manage to become stuck in a room of the house, leaving Willow to whine anxiously at the door.


Sue finally ordered, “Would you just get on the phone and call somebody to get us out of here?”
I definitely wanted to keep the boys out of this, maybe I could get Kate or Allie. I reached for my phone when it hit me, “Oh dear…”
“What?” asked Sue, instantly alert, “you told me you had your phone.”
“I do,” I assured her. “It’s just that… well … ummm… It’s in Willow’s backpack.”
“It’s where?”
“I put it in the backpack that I put on Willow – she like to wear it so I always put my phone, ID and a bottle of water in there.”
“The stupid dog has the phone?” Sue snapped.
“She’s not stupid!” I roared.
“Fine,” Sue nearly hissed. “The dog is brilliant. So why don’t you shout our there to old Lassie that she needs to get on the phone and let somebody know that Timmy fell in the damn well!”

* I've really been battling with blogger this morning. I had to delete and repost everything and I lost the comments I had - I hate that. I'm just hoping this works.

  2. It sounds like Sue is going to have a very sore bottom if she doesn't watch that tone of hers...

    2. Thanks, I love the cover too! Cassie would tell you it's usually Sue's fault when she gets in trouble. I doubt Sue would agree.

      They really can be - but they would deny it. Willow looks great with her pack on.

  11. Funny snippet, PK. Made me laugh at loud. "What, did Timmy fall down the well, Lassie?" So cute. I can just imagine a dog wearing a back pack.
