Welcome back to another Saturday Spankings this holiday weekend – at least for those in the US. Today is also Small Business Saturday, a day to pay attention to the small, often struggling mom and pop business in your area. I also want to point out that every writer is his or her own ‘small business.’ Sadly, most of us are not going to achieve the fame of Stephen King or Dean Koontz. But we are all trying to produce a ‘product’ that will bring joy to others. Please support authors you like by not only buying their books, but writing a review. You can’t imagine how much reviews are appreciated.
I’m so happy to have Cassie’s Life out now! In today’s snippet Cassie and Tom are visiting Colonial Williamsburg and Tom has enjoyed a business transaction with the shoemaker. Cassie is with Tom as he returns to the shoemaker to thank him for his work.
“Mr. Duff, happy to see you again, sir. And is this your good lady?”
“Yes, this is my wife, Mrs. Duff. Cassie, Mr. Edson, master cobbler.”
I murmured a greeting, my eyes wandering back to the workmen when I heard Mr. Edson ask, “Was your order made to specifications? Were you pleased?”
“Oh yes, I was very pleased,” Tom informed this stranger. “It works beautifully,” he went on enthusiastically.
I couldn’t control my urge to make him shut-up and I pinched his thigh hard. Tom looked at me with surprise and amusement.
“It should last a lifetime, sir. But should you ever need a replacement please contact us.”
“Thank-you,” Tom told him. “It may well get worn out, I’ll be in touch.”
I gave Tom another vicious pinch, which caused him to jump a little. He quickly said good-bye to his new friend and ushered me out the door, whispering, “I thought you might regret that first pinch, I know you’re going to regret the second.”
Tom was as happy as a child. He doesn’t do it all the time but teasing me so blatantly in public when I can say nothing in my defense delights him at times.
“You embarrassed me!” I told him.
Tom just chuckled and headed back to the house. Coming in he said, “I think it’s time to give your new gift a real work out and see what it can do. The very idea of pinching your husband, shame on you.”
Cassie’s Life (Book 10)
Ask Cassie about her life on the river and she’ll tell you it’s lovely and peaceful. But while Cassie loves the life she lives, peaceful is not always an accurate description. Whether she’s confronting an armed man who’s in a drunken rage, planning a friend’s wedding or dealing with a ghost in a backwoods lodge, Cassie is going to deal with it the best way she knows how. And peaceful doesn’t always work.
When a mysterious phone call comes for Cassandra Wentworth – Cassie’s past is suddenly back to haunt her in a devastating way. Tom has always said nothing from before the time they met counts, but he didn’t know about this. Sue, Annie, Allie and Jenny are all willing to help, but will it be enough?
