Six Sentence Sunday

Six sentence Sunday is a fun blog event where authors share six sentences of something they’ve written. Be sure to check out the other participants.


I haven’t done SSS in awhile, but thought I’d try to get back into the swing of it. Today’s six comes from my unedited WIP – which happens to be book four in the Amaranthine series (I am still looking for a good title)


They followed a set of stone stairs leading down to what should have been a dark, scary, old basement. Instead it was a large cement room rimmed in more metal doors and yellow security lights.  Yellow caution stripes were painted on the walls and large block letters announced “Authorized personnel only” and “Warning, dangerous specimens”.

Jorick surveyed the words. “Either they had high hopes or Kale isn’t their first brush with a nonhuman entity.”

“You don’t really think so – not in Michigan?”


thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the other participants!

  1. Sure, Joleene, why not in Michigan

  2. Very intriguing! I want to know what’s behind those doors. 🙂

  3. They never find what they think they should. In Michigan you say, pity (sorry the line fit – from a tea commercial)

  4. yay! Looking forward to the next book no pressure though..;)

  5. Great descriptions!

    Beautifully descriptive. Great six!

  7. As someone who grew up in and then escaped from Michigan, I really laughed at that last line. Well done!

  8. Nice choices. Sure made me curious.

  9. Oh please!!! There’s vampires in Michigan! They LOVE the lack of sunshine. He! He!

  10. Oh my! I wonder where they are, lol.
