YA Indie Carnival- WIP

Today on the Carnival, we are posting the first paragraph of our current work in progress (WIP).  Many of you know I'm currently working on Madly book 3.  Here is the cover: 

It's due out this month.  I was hoping for earlier, but life has been giving me fits without many giggles, so it will likely be the latter part of the month:(  BOO!  But, better late than never, right?  Right! 

So, I know it's a short one, but this is the first paragraph: 

I looked over at Jackson where he swam strongly at my side.  We both knew he could easily leave me behind to reach his destination more quickly, but he didn’t.  Despite the seriousness of our task, he held back to stay with me, to stay by my side.  It’s where he’d promised he would always be.

How's that for a little dollop?  Can a piece of literature be a dollop?  If not, it should be.  I always think of whipped cream when I think of a dollop.  Whipped cream is delicious and so is Jackson.  I think dollop is totally apropos here, don't you?  LOL

Go check out what the others are working on, y'all!  And, as always, TGIF!!
