Excerpt from Hoss Men at Fictionaut:
Yesterday (the day after “next day”):
The hoss men selected one natural light blonde and two Asian-brunettes for young motherhood and timely publishing. I was a dark Swedish blonde—not gone gray—with a total of four fiancés and a Scottish name meaning “ghost.” “Fiancé” could land a redhead a teaching post, but could it land her a son-book on deadline?
It came down to fathers and schools, to alma mater and Dad.
