For today’s WIPpet, I’m sharing a bit of my current WIP, “Haunted Kisses.” For those of you who aren’t familiar, WIPpet Wednesday is the brain child of author K.L. Schwengel. It’s an opportunity for writers to share their work. Click here to support other WIPpeteers!

This week’s math is simple. Here are 19 sentences for Nov. 19. Tara is breaking the news to her BFF, Violet, that she has a roommate who’s a member of the dearly departed persuasion. Enjoy!

It wasn’t until they were seated at the table, a steaming hot cheese pizza between them, that Violet’s eyes narrowed. “You still worried about Bradley?”

Tara played with the piece of crust remaining on her paper plate. “No. Bradley is ancient history. More than ancient. He’s Mesozoic.”

“Do you not like your new boss? Word around town is he’s one of Patience Point’s most eligible bachelors.” Violet gave her a wicked grin so enthusiastic Tara couldn’t help but join her.

“No. It’s just…” She leaned forward, brushing her blond hair behind her shoulder. “A ghost situation.”

Violet let her breath out in a whoosh. “Twenty-four hours in town and you’re already seeing the dead. That’s a record, even for you.”

“Tell me about it.”

Tara felt positively sick about it, but Violet’s enthusiasm didn’t wane.
