Six Sentence Sunday

From Shades of Gray

A lone figure walked slowly towards her from around the house. His hair and clothing were all black, as if he were a part of the night. He was like a shadow wraith formed from her fears, with only his pale face to give him the illusion of reality.

He came to a stop in front of her and gazed down. He was tall and broad shouldered with a slim waist.ย  His mouth remained a tightโ€“lipped line, though his eyes, dark and warm, seemed to be smiling at her.

Shades of Gray is currently available on the Amazon Kindle for 99 cents as part of the Indie Authors Unite Holiday Sale. Check out this list for some other great bargains.

*What is Six Sentence Sunday? It’s a group of writers who post six sentences from one of their manuscripts (whether published or no) every Sunday. It’s an excellent way to discover new writers and new books, so check out the other entries.ย  This is my first week of participation, but if time allows I hope to join in regularly.
