This little bit comes from my recently submitted novel, The Long Con. Colt is one of the MCs and Phillipe is his coworker turned friend.
His text to Phillipe was a little less business-like. “We’re going on a date! Dinner and music. He didn’t say date but that’s a date. Right? Right?” Having recently discovered the emojis he added a string of them.
“Ugh. Emojis.” Was Phillipe’s reply.
“That’s why I use them,” Colt messaged.
“Bastard. Just the two of you? Definitely a date.”
“And Frank,” Colt answered. “There was an incident when we were leaving the building with the recording studio.”
“I heard. R U Ok?”
“Yes. Was spooked for a bit but fine now.” Colt could imagine the wicked grin on Phillipe’s face. “Not using real words is because I used emojis isn’t it?” He added another huge string of bouncing smiling little characters.

I've been working on a contemporary romance-a very different type of book for me-called The Long Con. I'm hoping to have it published through Dreamspinner Press next year sometime.
This little bit is when one of the MC's, Colton "Colt" Hale stumbles into a new job and a new life.
Colt glanced at the floor for a second before looking her in the eye. “I want to live in this area and learn about making whisky. It’s sort of been a dream of mine since I was a little kid.”
Truth, sort of truth, flat out lie. Maybe he’d have to weave a bit of a con. Wasn’t that what any job interview was anyway? A con.
“Where are you from?”
“Toledo.” Mostly true since that was his previous city. “I came here to get a fresh start.” Absolutely true.
“Do you have references?” She asked.
Colt shook his head. None that you’d want. “Mostly did day labor and kept to myself, ma’am.”
