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.

Today’s six is again from my unedited WIP – which happens to be book four in the Amaranthine series.

A continuation from last week’s scene:

************

“Let’s call it a race, and I won. Look, there’s little Kately! How are you, not injured, I hope?”

“That’s not my name!” Since he’d overheard her mother use that name, he insisted on calling her by it.

Jorick was suddenly there, he grabbed Verchiel and spun him away, slamming him into the van, and shouted, “You!”

This is another bit from Chapter 1 – Jorick, Oren and Katelina are attempting to rescue Kale from the Institute of Paranormal Sciences in Michigan and the cops have just arrived…

************

A canary yellow sports car tore around the corner and only missed taking off the van’s door by inches as it slid to a stop next to them.  Katelina immediately recognized the car, and the redheaded vampire who bounded out of it.  It was Verchiel; the Executioner that Jorick hated.

As if to demonstrate his own vampire skills, one minute Verchiel was next to the van and the next he was practically in it, leaning over Oren with a broad, fanged grin on his face. “Making a mess are we?”

Oren’s eyes bulged. “What in the hell are you doing here?”

Skipping to a random bit….

************

Jorick’s attention was drawn to the cop car that squealed to a stop. The doors popped open and, like pastry from a toaster, two cops followed, their guns out, the doors in front of them like shields.

“Step away from the vehicle and put your hands up!” One of them leveled his weapon at Jorick and Kale.

Katelina whimpered, but Jorick only shoved her farther into the cab. “Be quiet and stay down!”

Jorick and Katelina are still at the Michigan  Institute of Supernatural and Unexplained Sciences:

************

The door at the back of the room was covered in diamond shaped warning labels. If not for the seriousness of the situation, they would have been comical. One had an injured hand with blood dripping from it crossed out, while a second showed a pair of swirly eyes and warned against “vampire hypnosis”. A third showed the black silhouette of a human head with large white fangs where the mouth belonged. “Warning: Vampires may be more dangerous than they appear. Exercise caution at all times”.

“My God, Jorick, where would they get a sticker like that?”

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?”

Six Sentence Sunday

It’s time again for Six Sentence Sunday, the weekly blog event where participants post six sentences of something they’ve written, whether published, a work in progress, or something they may never finish.

This week’s six sentences come from Ashton, a short story that will shortly be on Smashwords as the fourth in the Vampire Morsel’s Collection

The screen door banged open and closed, and feet shuffled through the house.  Ashton peered around the others curiously as someone whimpered; a soft, high sound, and then two of the guys appeared through the doorway, lugging a fourteen year old girl between them. Her hair was strawberry red and hung around her face like it had just fallen out of a ponytail. Her clothes were rumpled and dirt stained, and she had only one shoe. Tears and dirt streaked her face, and traces of blood were smeared under her nose. It would have been bad enough if Ashton hadn’t known who she was, but knowing made it worse.

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!

Six Sentence Sunday

It’s time again for six sentence sunday! The weekly blog where participants post six sentences of something they’ve written.

At the moment I am working on a “cooking” story for a collection, using characters from my books. So, that’s what you’re getting six from!

(Katelina has just put a giant sandwich in the oven to bake)

“See? I told you I could cook.”
“Yes,” Jorick agreed and pushed himself up off the counter. “You did, and I’m still waiting to see it.”
She wiped her hands on her jeans and gestured to the oven door. “You just did. That sandwich didn’t make itself.”

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

Six Sentence Sunday

it’s time again for Six sentence Sunday, that fun blogging experience where participants post six sentences from something they are working on, something they have published or just, well, something!

Today’s six come for the short story Claudius that I have not finished. Partially because I’ve done more than 20 book covers in three weeks, and partly because I’ve lost my thread of thought on it. I need to get back to it, though.

He could see her; dark and coquettish. She batted her eyes like a virgin, but took him in the stables like a common whore. He didn’t love her, and she knew it, though she didn’t care. He was just a game for her, but that was all right with him because her offerings were sweet enough. Then, they got sweeter. She showed him her immortality and let him taste it.

Someday I will finish it.

In the meantime, be sure to check out the other participants!

Six Sentence Sunday

it’s time again for Six Sentence Sunday, the awesome blog event where writer’s share six sentences from something they’ve written.

This week I am taking a break from Ties of Blood to share a snippet from Adam, a short story available for Free on smashwords

He’d heard something, but he didn’t know what, only that it had been something; something that shouldn’t be there. The tiny hairs on the back of his neck stood up, and a sudden, unexplained chill danced down his spine.

He walked towards the end of the alley where he instinctively felt the noise had come from. A row of weather stained garbage cans shone dully under a flickering light. The effect was eerie, but there was nothing there.

And then the light went out.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out the other great participants!  Also of note, if you missed the announcement, sign ups will now start Tuesday instead of Wednesday because of the number of participants! That means lots of good reading!
