Diamonds and Pearls

Good evening:
Here's my latest release at Splice Publishing, Diamonds and Pearls, now available at Barnes and Noble.com: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/kt-bishop?store=allproducts&keyword=kt+bishop
Confidence pierced Julian's soul as he raced onto the artificial turf at Roberto Clemente Stadium. He blew a kiss to Edeline in the press box, back flipped and walked into centerfield. The crowd roared loudly.
The scrimmage began when Julian snagged a fly ball deep centerfield after a batter tripled. He hummed a throw that hurled over the second baseman’s head and landed at home plate to get the runner out. “That should impress them.”
The crowd erupted a second time.
“Holy shit,” Gomez said.
After the three inning scrimmage, Gomez chatted with Julian.“If you don't watch it, you're going to make this team.”
“You hadn't seen nothing yet,” Julian boasted. He gulped down a large bottle of ice-cold water and poured the rest over his perspired body.
Out of nowhere, Edeline appeared at the dugout and approached Julian. “You were pretty good out there.”
“Thank you,” Julian said under a blush. His heart thumped into his chest over her beautiful image.
Edeline unexpectedly asked him out. “Are you doing anything tomorrow night?”
His mouth fell open, but nothing came out. He only gazed at her beautiful green eyes and long black hair.
“You're one of those guys,” Edeline said.
“What do you mean?” Julian said.
“Guys are supposed to do the asking,” Edeline said.
Julian's cheeks were flagged with anger. “I've been through a lot to get here. I'd love to be with you, but no head games. I'm trying to make a baseball team here.”
Happy Holidays

Click on the title, Joanne and my 50 word blurb is right there.
Not sure what's next, Melissa, but hoping Royal Icing is next.
I've added a new dimension to my sports romance writing, Sandy.
