October Seven 11 Blog Hop and #Giveaways

I'm so excited that the Seven 11 Blog Hop is back... And, it's BIGGER than ever! You'll still hop to each author's blog to read seven lines from their current WIP, but since the blog hop is now quarterly, each author is offering a #Giveaway!

Today, I'm sharing seven lines from my tentatively titled Contemporary Fiction, Always Room for Cupcakes. This story is unlike anything I've written before, and I'm having an absolute blast writing this character.  I hope you enjoy it!

**This story is for readers 18 and older, and is am unedited work in progress**


            One day you’re be-bopping along jamming to the music in your head while wondering if your thighs can handle grabbing a cupcake on the way home, and the next thing you know, you’re entire world crashes and burns.
            I used to wake up at night in a sweat, crying because I’d dreamt that my husband was cheating on me, or that he hated me and resented my kids. He’d always hold me close and tell me it was all just a dream, that he loved me and our family, and that he’d never let me go.
            He was a fucking liar.
            Instead of being the sweet, affable, hard-working man he projected to me and the outside world, he was actually a cheating, vagina-licking asshole, who only cared about getting off, and being free of responsibility.
            I’d gone from sweet and caring housewife, to a bitter, hard-as-nails single mom, who worked her ass off to give her kids a quarter of the life they were used to. Putting my photography skills to use, I’d gone to work for a scumbag PI, who used me to dig up good dirt on his clients.

**I'd love to hear what you think!**
