Tomorrow we come to the end of A to Z April Blogging Challenge 2013. It has been absolutely draining, but a lot of fun! I’m co-hosting the challenge on Amlokiblogs, so drop me a comment there if you have something to say about the challenge itself. The reflection post linky list will be up on the 3rd of April, so if you have any feedback on the challenge, let us know by posting it on your blog, and linking it to the list.
On this blog, I’ve been featuring mostly indie-published book excerpts for all of April. I love reading, and supporting author-friends, and this is a good way to do both. Today, for Y, I give you Younger by Pamela Redmond Satran.
An exciting piece of news about Younger is that Darren Star of Sex & the City fame has recently optioned it as a potential television series!
Elevator Pitch: A woman in her 40s pretends to be much younger to get a job and a date.
Maggie wouldn’t let me look in the mirror until she was finished. She washed my hair and blow-dried it, spent forever working over me with her makeup brush, buckled me into some very extreme underwear, and zipped me into tight jeans. It was like we were teenagers again, swapping clothes and giving each other makeovers.
“Okay,” she said, nodding decisively. “I think you’re ready.”
She propelled me across the loft to the mirror. I swear, at first I didn’t recognize myself. I actually swiveled to look behind me, thinking somebody else may have wandered into the place when I wasn’t looking.
Somebody blond. Somebody hot. And somebody very, very young.
