Welcome! Indie Author Excerpts is a feature allowing indie authors the chance to showcase one of their books and allows readers to find their next favorite story. Each week, an indie author gets to promote a 1-2 page excerpt of their book here at The Bawdy Book Blog. This is a win-win for everyone! This feature was inspired in part by Indie Author Spotlight, a meme hosted by Beckie @ Bittersweet Enchantment and CYP @ A Bookalicious Story.
Bo was lounging against the truck when I returned from Grace’s apartment. He was chatting up some blonde chick that looked like all the blonde chicks he’d ever been with. They were interchangeable to me and likely to Bo too since he called them all “Babe.” I figured I would know if he ever fell for a girl when he called her by her first name instead of some random endearment. “That was a clusterfuck, eh?” He asked as I approached. “Yup” I climbed into my truck and threw my books into the back. I revved the engine a couple of times to signal that I wanted Bo to get in the damn truck. He could pick up chicks another time. “At the risk of sounding like a girl, do you want to talk about it.” Bo asked when he finally got into the passenger seat. I threw the truck in reverse and pealed out of campus parking. “No, Bo Peep, I don’t.” I bit out. So much for being good at doing. “What were you thinking?” “What part of I don’t want to talk about it didn’t you understand.” “Are you giving up?” “What?” I swung my head toward him. Bo threw up his hands. “No way.” I looked back at the road. “Then let’s strategize.” “I’ve already made every strategic mistake possible. I left too late last night to catch her. I surprised and maybe embarrassed her after class. If I catch her at a party and spill beer all over her, my trifecta of stupidity can be complete.” “So now what?” “Now, it’s time to regroup.” “You want to fight or drink tonight?” “Both.”
