Fiorella's excerpt was fairly well received by the other members of her group at the RWA critique session. But their perception of Fioralla herself was somewhat skewed.
How long was her manuscript, someone asked. Ninety-thousand words, she answered.
The group expressed surprised. In fact, their eyes bulged out of their heads.
"What happens in the story?" one inquired.
Fiorella summarized hot sex, gang rape, attempted kidnapping, and attempted murder.
Their eyes bulged further.
"I thought this would be a sweet romance," one of them admitted.
So much for appearances. Fio may look domestic, but she's a wild one.
