New stories being considered by TWRP

I'm anxiously awaiting word from Wild Rose Press on my two submitted stories and am hoping they will make the grade. Both are short romance stories, one in a college scene and one in a high school scene. My released story Lab Partners is still on the opening page at Wild Rose. Some people are downloading it but I don't know how many. Catch you later.

Lab Partners released today

My story Lab Partners has released today, available on for download for $3.00. Please go to that site and at least click to see the blurb which Anna, my good editor, help me compose. Let me go ahead and give you the blurb here and hope somebody drops by to read my blog spot.
Leroy Doyle, a college chemistry major and track star, is on the verge of scholastic probation after flunking calculus. As he enters his sophomore year he can't afford the distractions of having a girl friend, but that changes once he meets Jody Stinson. A chemical engineering major and the smartest student in the sophomore class, she is beautiful, arrogant and not very happy about being forced into being his lab partner. But Leroy senses there is more to Jody than she portrays to the outside world. Her treatmet of him only serves to fuel his interest and despite her barbed remarks, he strives to win her heart.

Story release date is August 22, 2007. As mentioned the cover is here. I hope to do some promo if I can figure out how. The Wild Rose Press editor has really been great. More later.

Post no. 2

I'm having a time getting photos and images on my blog. I wanted to get rid of the small Lab Partners image but don't know how to. Well, anyway I got a larger one and I wanted that. Also my ugly mug is in now and I hope it shows when I post to The Wild Rose Press blogspot. Only time will tell. I have a second story with TWRP now and maybe in a couple or three weeks my editor will read it and give me either bad news or good news.

Various notes

I've joined the authors on The Wild Rose Press and will have a short story with the cover shown here published on their site soon, probably in mid August. As one person I worked with in civil service who always said he was impersonating a government worker, I hope I can say more than I'm impersonating a writer. My editor, bless her heart, thinks I can write. My story is set in the 1950s and is romance. I like writing science fiction (Please SF, not sci-fi) and in those stories I seem always to put some romance.

Until next time. Larry, retired chemist, runner, amateur radio operator and writer.
