My favorite part about buying or renting DVD movies is watching the second disc where all the extras are stored: deleted scenes, gag reels, cast interviews, “the making of…” —everything but the movie. That’s what this section is all about. Okay, there probably won’t be a gag reel, but you never know…
There are scenes that authors write that they truly love and want to share with readers. Every once in a while, however, one of these scenes ends up on the cutting-room floor. No matter how many plot convolutions or character contortions I make to try to keep it in, it simply doesn’t fit. But it doesn’t have to be relegated to the computer’s recycle bin. I hope you enjoy them.
The Bachelor Auction from The Hungry Heart: Up until the very last draft, this was the opening scene for the book.
