So people are posting excerpts from their very first novels. So far, I've seen these up at Gena Showalter's Weblog, Diana's Diversions, Jill Monroe's Blog and at Romancing Paradise (Lynn!).
I would love to join in the game but unfortunately, what may be the one and only copy of my first completed romance is currently under a desk an ocean away. (Though a friend of mine that I forced to read it might also have her own personal copy). I'm not even sure there's a surviving floppy disk. I wrote it straight out of high school. I was young. I didn't know about backing up. But it was set on a lush tropical island and the heroine had a broken leg. I still think that's a pretty good start. *g*
On a different note, what do you all think of the picture of me on the side of this blog? No, I'm not being needlessly vain. I'm thinking of using it as my new author photo. I was going to post a bigger copy but Blogger's throwing a fit. Will try to edit this post later today and add it in. But opinions?
[Edited to Add: And here it is!]
