Snippet Sunday

          Here’s another snippet from my Valentine short story, “Operation Rhombus,” which is included in Love and Diamonds, an Astraea Press Anthology just out last week.

          Selecting her items took only a few minutes, and she turned toward the check out lane when her cart nearly collided with that of Lilah Bedford, the Home Ec teacher. 
          "Hello there, Ellie. Where's Paul?" 
          "He's out of town, picking up supplies for something called Operation Rhombus." 
          "Operation — oh yes, I heard about that. Great idea. I hope he's successful with it. Well, I've got to go. See you on Monday!" 
          Why has everyone else heard about Operation Rhombus except me? she wondered. 

Thanks for visiting! Love and Diamonds is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and most ebook outlets. 


  1. I love Elli's growing frustration---and it's totally worth it in the end! :)

  2. Great way to get the reader intrigued about what he's up to!

  3. Great tease. Now I definitely need to know what he's up to.

  4. Love this story!!!

  5. I'd be wondering that myself by now, and be somewhat annoyed as well! Great snippet!
