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!  :)

Things are heating up in August! So for this month, we're looking at the scorching hot Donna from the Loving Her series.

Donna White is one tough cop. Behind the badge, though, is a very sweet, sad, sensitive soul. Truly a woman alone, Donna is simply trying to navigate her way through life. Who is Donna? She is dedicated, determined, distinctive and deep. Donna’s rich and touching story is second in the Loving Her series. 

Background on the snippet: This is where the story begins. Donna didn't sleep much at all the night before because today was an especially painful (emotionally) day. Her thoughts are interrupted when the phone rings. This snippet has been edited to fit 8 sentences.

     The phone rang, Donna rolled over. Her alarm clock said it was just a little after nine in the morning; she decided it was a decent time for someone to call, so she answered. “Hullo?”
     “Heya kid. How you holding up?” It was John. John and his wife Beth were good friends of Donna's, and her parents'. John and Beth had watched Donna grow up, and soon they would see her graduate from the police academy...they would, but her parents wouldn't.

Hope you liked it!
Happy reading!

That is so poignant that the other couple will witness the graduation but her parents won't; this really builds curiosity about Donna.
One grammatical comment: remove the possessive apostrophe-S in this line "were good friends of Donna's, and her parents'." It would read better "were good friends of Donna and her parents."
Good snippet.
