TUESDAY TALES - 14 WRITERS WRITING TO THE WORD PROMPT SAND


Welcome to Tuesday Tales! Thank you for stopping by. Click on the writer's name to go to their blog.

JEAN JOACHIM (Contemporary Romance)
The dining room table was decked out in a festive Christmas cloth. Will’s dad, Sandy, held a sharp knife and faced the succulent baked ham. 
FIONA DRUCE (Literary Fiction)
The powerful scent of exotic spice filled his nose, tangy and sharp. The drifts of aroma led him down the street in random pulls of piquant warmth or all-pervading sensuality. 
DAWNE PROCHILO (Historical Wetern Romance)
"Sarah Browning wiped aside the strands of flaxen hair that had fallen out of her bonnet and adhered to her sweat-latent cheekbone."
IRIS BLOBEL (Aussie Romance)
With just a towel wrapped around his hips, Tyson walked into his bedroom. Water dripping from his hair and running down his back he chuckled as he read the text from Katie.
V.L. LOCEY (M/M Romantic Comedy) 
I stared at him over my steaming mug. “You`re such a damned contradiction of a man,” I admitted, at a total loss as to how to proceed. 
KAREN CINO (Contemporary Romance)
Lisa took the envelope out of Pia’s hand.  Sliding the paper out, she held it between her fingers shaking her head back and forth.  “No way.”
STEFAN ELLERY (Sci Fi)
Paul pulled back from the ledge and hugged the icy wall. He wanted to be as far away from the empty space. He didn't trust himself to be any closer. 
LINDSAY DOWNS (Suspense)
“All right, for those of you who’ve never been to a rodeo or seen one on TV this is where we’re going.”
SARAH CASS (Urban Fantasy)
With a heavy heart and a heap of trepidation I opened my eyes. The devastation before me wrenched my heart down to my stomach.
TRICIA ANDERSEN (Medieval Fantasy Romance)
Thatcher and Miranda talked and laughed as they wandered along the sandy bank of the stream, dreaming the plans for their wedding.  Miranda felt Thatcher tense beneath her fingers holding his hand as they ascended the path to their village. 
SIOBHAN KINCADE (Contemporary Cowboy Romance)
Sentences: The anticipation of seeing Wes culminated in a heart-stopping view of his tight-jeaned butt leaning against a post near the baggage claim.  The sight was like a punch to the gut – it knocked the wind from her lungs while at the same time setting fire to her nerve endings. 
KATHLEEN BALL (Western Romance)
Hunter started to cut her hair and for some reason he found it best to stand between her legs. Her view of his belt buckle unnerved her and thoughts were most certainly not on her hair.
TAI VICARI (Fantasy/Sci Fi)
Katriana sat waiting patiently for Ishmael's double to join her in the lobby of the Golden Flower Hotel in Xian, China. She was instructed by Sabrina to take the lead of Issy, Ishmael's double. He was to meet her at 2pm in the lobby by the stairwell, she was to sit on the blue sofa with gold throw pillows. 
DAVEE JONES (Romance)
Snowballs Not Beach Balls
 The surf splashed against the rocks, the white caps a sharp contrast to the dark gray water. Muted light filtered through a hazy sky, preparing for the sunrise."
