#SixSunday: Virgo (WIP)-Dance Club Scene #4

I have NEWS! Oh, boy, here goes. Crescent Moon Press offered me a contract. I signed it. It’s in the mail. I am exchanging publication-related emails with an editor and a marking director. I filled out a form for a cover! January Black is on its way to being e-formated, printed, and purchasable! (Oh god, what if people hate it? What if they don’t?!) I’m very excited, if you couldn’t tell. It’s all very surreal. I’ve gone from form rejections to publishing in progress, so it hasn’t quite sunk in yet.

Now…onto my six. Last week, Delilah pulled Led Zeppelin III out of her milk crate of records, which surprised Sam, because she’s never done that remix in public. What she pulls out of the cover is not Zeppelin.

She flipped one of her blue vinyl sample discs between her hands and put it on the right hand platter, then put the other on the left. Everything Delilah did from this point on was a mystery to Sam, and he backed away as Adam took a step toward her. She dropped her headphones, listened, chatted, gestured, and even flirted. Adam answered her with a nod, a grin, and a “a’ight.” She put their headphones back on and returned to her laptop. He lifted his left speaker to his ear, held it with his shoulder and continued beat-matching, having no clue of the compliment he had just been paid.

  1. Congrats on your contract. Is this the first for you? They always seem to send the author to dizzying heights of euphoria…to OMG what if they hate it. But if this six is any indication, I'm gonna say you'll have a winner on your hands. Dakota
