Six Sentence Sunday

It’s time again for six sentence sunday, the fun blog group where participants post six sentences from something they’ve written. It’s a great way to find new writers, so be sure to check out the other participants!

I spent the last week catching up and got my website updated and some miscellaneous stuff done, though haven’t gotten to the Claudius story, so I thought what the heck, let’s do one more from Ties of Blood.

(working cover)

This is a continuation from last week. Jorick and Katelina are laying on the bed in their “room” at The Guild’s citadel.

“It won’t be for long.”

“I know,” she agreed, though truthfully she didn’t.  She gazed into the deep, dark pools of his eyes and felt herself sinking into their depths. As she had many times before, she let herself drown in them, like going under in a warm summer pond.

He captured her lips in a kiss, and she responded eagerly. Her lips parted for him and he swept his hot tongue into her mouth, tangling with hers and vying for supremacy.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to check out the other participants!

Have a great Sunday!

Six Sentence Sunday

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!  🙂

(working cover)

(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.

Six Sentence Sunday

It’s time again for Six Sentence Sunday, the very cool blog group where participants post six sentences from something they’ve written. It’s a great way to meet new authors and writers.

I’m almost done with my WIP Ties of Blood – over a month late, but better late than never, huh? As such, here’s some more from it

(working cover)

Jorick has just told Katelina that tomorrow she must meet with Malick, the head of the Vampire’s Guild.

She swallowed hard and bit her bottom lip. “How bad is that?”

“I don’t know.” He met her eyes and held them. “Malick is much, much older than anyone you’ve ever encountered, and infinitely more powerful. He makes what I or Kateesha could do look like a child’s game.  If he chose, he could read your soul and destroy your mind in a few moments, without flinching at the effort.”

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

Six Sentence Sunday

It’s time again for six sentence Sunday – only this week is the anniversary (see my previous blog all about that!) –  and I am still plodding along slowly on my WIP Ties of Blood.

(working cover)

Since everyone wanted to know where Katelina was going… well, now you know:

“Yes, by the way, I am serious. Where else do you think The Guild’s citadel is?” “Iowa?” she repeated with disbelief. “There’s nothing in Iowa except corn.”

“And lots of Vampires,” Verchiel added.  “Can you think of a better place?”

I’m an Iowan girl at heart. Where else would it be? 😉

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

Six Sentence Sunday

It’s time again for Six Sentence Sunday. Every week participants post six sentences from something they are writing – or have written. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to meet new writers!

This week’s are from my WIP Ties of Blood – again.

(working cover)

The idea filled Katelina with terror. She didn’t want to be a vampire, let alone one under Malick’s infamous tutelage. Jorick had been clear enough at the horrors that entailed.  She struggled uselessly and bellowed, “I’m not going anywhere!”

“Sorry,” he repeated. “But we are.”

 

No, not Jorick talking to her, but someone else.

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

Six Sentence Sunday

It’s time for Six Sentence Sunday, the fun group where participants post six sentences of something – a WIP, a published work, a contracted work, you name it.

This week’s six sentences come from my WIP Ties of blood. They’re about as rough as you can get.

(working cover)

A coyote called loudly in the distance, and the hair on the back of her neck stood up in response. She licked her lips, and tried to quiet her pounding heart. It was so loud that she couldn’t hear anything over it. Fighting for calm, she drew a tight, strangled breath and then something very near her moved.

A hand grabbed her shoulder and a scream tore from her lips. She tried to fight off her attacker, but strong hands held her arms to her sides and pinned her to the tree. The bark was rough, even through her coat, and their blood scented breath was warm in her face.

 

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

Six Sentence Sunday

It’s time again forSix Sentence Sunday, the cool blog group where writers post six sentences from a work in progress, a published work, or even something they are shopping around. It’s a great way to discover new writers!

(working cover)

This week’s comes from my work in progress, Ties of Blood.  Since I posted part of the argument last week, I thought the result would be fun to post this week:

“Yes, Mom, this is Jorick-” she nodded from one to the other, “-and Jorick, Mom.”“It’s a pleasure,” Jorick responded politely, his full lips concealing his long vampire teeth. “I’ve heard a great deal about you.”

Her mother surveyed him critically. “I wish I could say the same for you.” She moved towards him, her expression almost hostile.  “I suppose you’re one of Patrick’s friends, aren’t you?

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

Six Sentence Sunday

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.

(working cover)

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!

Six Sentence Sunday

It’s time for Six Sentence Sunday, the blog group where participants share six sentences of something they’ve written, whether it’s a work in progress, something that’s published, or something that will never see the light of day.

I used the ultimate in random, again, and this week’s sentences come form Legacy of Ghosts:

Setup: Katelina and Jorick are discussing vampires and sex, and she says the wrong thing….

“Slurp?” Jorick cried, offended. “Now who’s disgusting?”

She rolled her eyes. “Sorry, do you have a better word for it?”

“Yes, I do, actually,” he retorted. “’Sharing blood’ is much nicer, or even ‘exchanging blood’. Of course there’s always ‘coupling’ or the far more picturesque ‘making love’, which I happen to prefer.” He sniffed. “Slurp, indeed!”

Be sure to go read the other participants! Six sentence Sunday is a great way to find and meet new writers.
