Every week I participate in a blog hop hosted by the Weekend Writing Warriors (also shared by the Snippet Sunday Facebook group) – Writers post 8-10 sentences from one of their stories (poems or blog posts as well) and readers hop around reading tantalizing snippets and are welcomed to comment – we encourage comments from all!

Anyway, since today is the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s landfall in New Orleans and my book Hostage Heart was inspired by stories of rescue and aid, I am posting the links to snippets I posted from the book. Please enjoy:

The bank robbery
Danger
Miss Goody Two-Shoes

For the past year and a half I have participated in a weekly blog hop called The Weekend Writing Warriors #8sunday; a few weeks ago I added #SnippetSunday posts on the FaceBook group. Actually the posts are the same for both, it’s just a matter of who you follow and who follows you; WeWriWa limits your posts to eight sentences, snippets CAN be a little more.

Every week writers post snippets on their blogs and then we “hop” around and leave comments on each others’ snippets. Everyone is welcome to participate. We have just about every kind of genre and story line and it is entertaining to following along with a story and a new installment every week. Sometimes the snippets come from works-in-progress, sometimes they are already published. The comments we receive help to improve our writing.

I look forward to participating every week.

I just recently posted a few months of snippets from my novel Hostage Heart – if you would like to see what this blog hop is all about AND enjoy some tasty tidbits, visit any WeWriWa or SnippetSunday author’s blog on Sundays. Or you could always check out my Hostage Heart snippets.

Listed below are the Hostage Heart snippets in order with the most recent on the bottom:

The bank robbery

Hostage Heart  by Chelle Cordero is available as an AUDIOBOOK and in All Ebook Formats and  Print Editions.

 

 Life was hard after the hurricanes swept through, destroying her parents’ home and livelihood…Deanna did the only thing she could do. She moved to New York City, found a job, worked hard, scrimped and saved to send what little she could manage back home to Louisiana to her parents.
An errand for her boss – a chance encounter with a crew of bank robbers – a kind man who tried to help her and deserved her courageous help in return… But he wasn’t the man she thought he was…no, he was so very much more!

 

Review
Hostage Heart is a captivating read… I really enjoyed Chelle Cordero’s ‘Hostage Heart.  It read quickly and kept my interest until the very end. I would highly recommend this book and I plan to read all of the author’s other books. It took me along on the adventure. I enjoyed the romance. ~LDB, on Amazon

Every weekend I’ve been participating in the Weekend Writing Warrior blog hop since last September. “Blog Hopping in general means visiting and revisiting certain blogs that you’ve come to enjoy. Making friends, forming bonds within your circle, that’s all a big part of it.”

Every Sunday dozens of talented writers post 8-sentence snippets from their creative works, it can be published or unpublished material. These writers and readers then “hop around” between blogs reading these selections and commenting – it can be romance, sci-fi, mystery, poetry, paranormal, contemporary, historical, fantasy or ANYTHING. It’s one HUGE tasting party, something for everybody!

Please come join the fun and comraderie – just visit www.wewriwa.com to learn what it’s all about. Feel free to comment whether you are a writer or a reader, we LOVE comments.
