SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY - June 19


In honor of the month of June, we're posting a Six Sentence snippet about one of our three main characters from I.O.U. SEX ... and the character's name is June! Reading her high school diary is what inspired the three friends to find their old boyfriends to make amends for vetoing sex when they were teenagers. (No, this book isn't a fantasy. They were teens in Texas during the 1960s.) Divorced from Stan for about a year, in this scene June is getting dressed for her first meeting with Denny, her high school steady.



She added silver hoops to her ears and straightened her shoulders for a last look in the mirror. She turned sideways, patting her not-so-flat stomach, frowning at her not-so-perky breasts.
     Stan's criticisms nagged: Is that cellulite on the back of your thighs?
      Now she answered him in words she'd never spoken aloud. "Shut up, Shithead, and get out of my mind. I may not be perfect, but for a woman my age, I look pretty damned good."


I.O.U. SEX is now available in paperback as well as eBook format. Click on the "Buy I.O.U. Sex" tab above for details.
