With the release of my YA swimming romance Streamline just around the corner (3-27-12), I’m happy to announce that Omnific Publishing has launched my YA swimming short story Swim Recruit.
Swim Recruit will “wet” your whistle for Streamline! Read both and you’ll be wet behind the ears.
What’s even better news is that Swim Recruit is FREE at Omnific Publishing’s site.
Not long after Abby Donahue’s family falls apart, she escapes on an airplane to Chicago for a recruiting trip. A talented high-school swimmer, Abby hopes to score both a college scholarship and some distance from her parents’ recent divorce. But is this university for her?
Her first encounter with freshman swimmer Reese McGowan makes her nervous. He’s a tall backstroker with a mess of blond hair, glittering aquamarine eyes, and a suspension from the team for badmouthing the school to another recruit. As Abby unravels the mystery underlying Reese’s disdain, she begins to unlock her own hidden emotions about her father. Together Abby and Reese battle bullies on the team and inner demons, learning that flipper feet and fighting for family can actually be a good thing.
It’s my first short story and my first time writing from a first person point of view. I had a lot of fun with it and I hope the story has some positive messages too.
Bounce, baby! It’s time for Omnific’s Blog Bounce–check it out HERE.
