It’s time again for Six Sentence Sunday, the cool blog group where participants post six sentences of something they’ve written. Be sure to check out the other participants.
I usually set this up ahead of time but with holidays and bad weather got behind this week, so you’re getting six sentences from Arowenia, the free short story I uploaded to Smashwords the other day.
She leaned delicately on the veranda railing and closed her eyes, savoring the early summer evening. The smell of fresh cut grass wafted on the breeze, and she could hear the bugs and the bullfrogs calling to one another. It reminded her of another time and another place; a world before Claudius and his “brothers” stormed her father’s castle and butchered everything in their path. Sometimes, in her dreams, she could still hear the guards’ screams, but she was numb to them now. It was so very long ago, and time healed all, or how else could they continue living year after year, century after century?
“Oh, uh, hey.”
(at this point she looked up to see the newest fledgling of their coven, however as this is six sentences, I’m outta here!)
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check the other participants. I’ll be running late this week due to easter, but I’m hoping to actually get to read them on the PC (instead of the phone) so I can actually leave comments this week! woo-hoo!

It’s time for six sentence sunday, the weekly blog where participants post six sentences of something they’ve written. It’s a great way to discover new writers, so be sure to stop by the blog and check out the other participants!
Today’s six come from Ties of Blood, which is finally finished (yay!) and shipped off to the editor and the beta people. I thought I’d find a Jorick snippet for Sharon – who by the way is guest posting over at Love Romance Passion, so if you’re inclined stop and show her some love! :)
(This is after they’ve come back from seeing Malick. Initially they have a fight with Oren, and then some alone time where he finally asks her if she is all right.)
Jorick drew a deep, frustrated breath. “I’m sorry, I should have asked that first, I just…” he broke off and cleared his throat. “I’m not used to feeling helpless, anymore.”
“It’s all right, I understand.”
“It’s not much of an excuse,” he muttered. “But what’s done is done.” He rolled over to face her and cradled her cheek in the palm of his hand.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the other participants.

It’s time again for Six Sentence Sunday, the cool group where, every Sunday, participants post six random sentences. It can be from a WIP, from a published manuscript, or something you never plan to publish.
This week’s six sentences are from my Work in Progress, Ties of Blood.
Worried about her mother’s safety, Katelina has just announced to Jorick (her vampire boyfriend) that she wants to visit her – and she expect Jorick to go with her! Of course, he isn’t happy about it….
|“Checking to see that she’s all right and introducing us are hardly the same thing!”
Katelina’s hands went to her hips. “What? Would you rather just sit at her window like a vulture and peer in on her?”
He nodded encouragingly, a brief light of hope in his eyes. “Actually, yes, that’s what springs to mind.” She continued to glare at him stubbornly and he snapped, “Katelina, I do not meet parents!”
Hope you enjoyed these six sentences. Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out the other participating authors!
