Snippet Sunday #01

#SnippetSunday is a Facebook group where you can sample a few sentences from a variety of authors’ works each week.

Snippet Sunday

These are the Chapter 1 opening lines for ’Til Death Do Us Part, my recent release at JMS Books, LLC:

“Call me when you land, okay, Henry?”

“It’ll be something like six-forty tomorrow morning, your time,” I replied. The summer class Sam would be teaching started tomorrow, but he still wouldn’t need to get up that early.

“Humor me. Please?”

I’d been infected with the travel bug years ago when I’d taken my first research trip as a graduate student. If there was an antidote, I didn’t want to take it. Now that I was married, I admitted that the weeks-long separation from my husband put a damper on my spirits for work-related travels, but it wasn’t strong enough to make me want to stop. It was just a few weeks, after all.”

BLURB

Henry and Sam Miller-Greene are living the dream. They love their careers — which afford each of them opportunities to travel to exotic locations — they love their home, Sam’s caring family, and each other. They disagree on the subject of adoption, but are fully committed to each other in marriage … ’Til Death Do Us Part.

The dream is shattered when Henry’s plane crashes, and he’s presumed dead. But four people — Henry, two other men, and a child — survive undetected on a remote, small, and insignificant island. Will Sam and Henry’s love be able to survive as well?

Henry fights to endure in harsh conditions, never knowing when disaster will strike. Sam struggles with his loss, but with help moves on with his life. Will Sam be able to put aside his new love when he reunites with Henry?

Hey! I know you! Welcome to Sunday Snippets!

That last line just screams “famous last words.”

Addison Albright

*waves* Whew, a familiar face!
Yes, I’d have to agree that might be a bit of foreshadowing. 😉

Reading the snippet made me think something bad was going to happen. So of course, I had to read the blurb. 🙂 Sounds like an interesting tale.

Ha, yes, that last line in the snippet is a bit foreshadowy. Thanks for reading! 🙂

They seem so happy together, they can tell they are comfortable with each other but still so in love.

Addison Albright

They are. At this point in the story they’ve been married for several years. They don’t yet know how tragically their love is about to be tested. 🙂

Aww man, I just had to read the blurb, didn’t I? Nice snippet, but I feel so sorry for him, now.

🙂 They’ve each got an ordeal ahead of them, that’s for sure!

I love this line! “If there was an antidote, I didn’t want to take it.” Speaks of his true passion for the traveling. That last paragraph/line is also a huge red flag. Something bad is going to happen, and the blurb definitely answered my question on what. This sounds like a very interesting tale and I look forward to more.

Welcome to Snippet Sunday, also!

Thank you! Yes, that last line was definitely a red flag. 😉

The travel bug is a really hard one to kill. Hopefully, they can share it some other times.

Yes it is! I hope so, too. 😉
