This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight sentences from a published work or even a WIP (work in progress). Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! It's a great way to meet readers, writers, and your next favorite book!  :)

For this month, I am giving you snippets of Stephania's story in the Loving Her series, The Model.

She's exotic. She's beautiful. She's talented. She's unique. She's Stephania. A young successful model who started from nothing, she has experienced all the ups and downs of life. Never one to be kept down, she persists through life's trials and reaches for the fairytale ending she has always hoped for. Stephania's emotional journey is the fourth story in the Loving Her series.

Background on the snippet: Stephania is on the phone with a gentleman from a company that turned her down for a modeling job for being "too ethnic." True to form, Stephania lets him have it.

“You know, it’s not like I’m that dark. But just because I have black hair and full lips. Just
because my boobs actually fill a bra cup and I actually have an ass, I’m too thick and too ‘ethnic’ for
you. Okay. Whatever. If and when you are looking for a real woman and someone who is professional and truly representative of women everywhere, call me.” Steph hung up.

Hope you liked it! Happy reading!

Sounds as if she's suffered some major disappointment and is understandably bitter. Good snippet.

Good on her for telling him off! Real models come in all shapes and sizes, not just one standard of beauty.
