Happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there. The story I'm working on now, features Elliot Peters, a dad of twin daughters. He's determined to get his girls settled and maybe find a little bit of happiness for himself. For all of them. Want another sneak peek?
As you may or may not know, Kate is the sister of Lucy, who was the main character in Falling For Home. You also might not know that My Slanted Bookish Ramblings asked me some questions about Falling for Home over on her Sunday Spotlight. You can win a copy of this book and of Damaged.
“Do you really think that? I mean I’m turning twenty-five and I don’t even have a job.”
Elliot gave a low, rough chuckle. “Twenty-five is tipping the scales toward over the hill. But I think you’re good. You’ve got a degree, a plan, and a family who’ll back you no matter what.” He squeezed her hand. “And you have friends who’ll do the same.”
She nodded into the blackness. She did have all of that. “How about you? You think all of the things that led you to where you are right now were worth it?”
Elliot let go of her hand and settled both of his on his chest. Kate scrunched her pillow a bit under her neck, hoping he’d answer.
“Gina’s a mess. I need to get my girls settled into a real life. They’re in grade one now. They need to be at school, the same school, every day. They need to come home, do homework, have dinner and go to bed at the same time each night. They need routine.”
“They need you.”
He turned his head. She was already looking at him but now their eyes found each other.
“They do. I was unsure of that before. I mean, I work full time which includes odd hours and overtime. And I’m not the mom. I know I’m a good parent. I’d die for them. I would do anything I had to for them. And I thought letting them be with their mom was what I was supposed to do. But I was wrong. She hasn’t changed. She won’t change. Gina has always been one hundred percent about herself. But even knowing that, I can’t regret it because of them.”
