Friday Pen Pals with MJ Compton and her release And Jericho Burned


FRIDAY  PEN PALS
AUTHOR: MJ COMPTON
BOOK: AND JERICHO BURNED





Excerpt:
The keyboard player, in his enormous black hat and flowing pastel paisley shirt, brought up the rear of the line. He walked slowly, checking out the women from the safety of the shadow his hat cast over his face. He paused every so often, as if examining the goods on display. When he reached Lucy, he stopped.
Although she couldn’t see his eyes, she felt his gaze, as if he peered straight through to her soul. He leaned closer, stealing what little air space remained. Heart sprinting and lungs compressing, she wrestled the panic-attack. This wasn’t the time for her claustrophobia to launch itself. She huddled closer to the wall, trying to escape his hovering presence, trying not to be too obvious as she gasped for breath.
“What’s your name?” he asked in a gruff voice.
The women around her fell silent.
Blood pounded in her ears. She couldn’t have heard him correctly. Oversized stud-muffins never paid attention to her.
But he took her hand and brought it to his mouth. His lips were soft, his breath hot. Shivers sprinted on her spine. He touched his tongue to the center of her palm, and her bones melted like icicles in a rainforest.
This couldn’t be happening, not to her. First Bill Danby declared he planned to marry her, and now this semi-famous musician was hitting on her.
