If you read an older version of Capture, I should probably state that there were a ton of scenes added in. There were also more kissing scenes added in. When I said that Program 13 and Capture were totally different? I meant it. ;)
Because I'm in a sharing mood, here is a random snippet from Capture:
“So, what is this then?” He leaned forward, inching closer to me. He placed his book on the table beside him and waited for me to respond. I looked up at him, leaning back on the desk, and crossed my arms, ready to hear what he had to say. Ian remained quiet. “Well…”I'll return to a somewhat normal posting schedule next week.
Before I could argue, Ian leaned in and pressed his lips gently against mine. He lifted his hands to the sides of my face and moved in closer. No. No. No. I felt as though the room was spinning. Every argument. Every question. Every fear. It was all gone, replaced by the satisfaction his kiss. I could feel his lips part over mine, the rush of cool breath escaping between my lips.
I wrapped my arms around his neck, eager to erase the space between us. Ian took that as his cue to deepen the kiss. His lips moved against mine as he ran his fingers through my hair. He pulled me to the edge of the desk, pressing his body against mine.
What the heck was I doing?
Remembering what we were there for, I pulled away, brushing my hand against my lips. Ian didn’t move. He sat still, waiting for me to say something. “We should get back to studying. Ramona will probably be back soon.”
I couldn’t tell him what I truly felt. I couldn’t afford to lower my guard now, not when I had a job to complete. Ian retrieved his book and proceeded to study, completely ignoring me. Damnit. Afraid I’d hurt his feelings, I reached for his hand and closed my eyes. If I couldn’t say how I felt, the least I could do was show him how I felt. Even if I knew that I was going to regret it. Ian squeezed my hand harder, as if trying to hold onto my thoughts. It was enough for him. It was enough for now.
Right now, I'm in Submerged land. I've been editing as I've been writing, but I still have a ways to go before I am able to query this novel. I'm also working on the dreaded query letter and the synopsis, so soon enough I'll actually be able to tell all of you what the story is about.
After I finish Submerged, there's a short story I plan on finishing for a SHP anthology call, and then I'm going to dive into a New Adult Contemporary novel that I've been eager to write for some time now. I figure before I dive back into cyborgs, I could use a little time writing about normal people.
