Six Sentence Sunday

After it’s holiday break, Six Sentence Sunday, the weekly event where writers post six sentences from any manuscript they choose (published, unpublished, work in progress) has resumed. I’d like to say I have some kind of logical plan for my six sentence choices, but I don’t.

So, today’s comes from my WIP Ties of Blood because it won at eeniey-meeney-miney-mo.

(Jorick has promised to take Katelina somewhere warm, and she’s getting impatient for him to fulfill that promise)

“All in due time.  You’re one of the most impatient creatures I’ve ever met. It takes time to make preparations.” His face became serious. “I can’t just go on spur of the moment trips anymore.  Between luggage x-ray and security checks it’s very hard to travel with a vampire in a trunk. I like to think I’m very patient with your human limitations,” he commented quietly. “In return…”

From Shades of Gray

(at this point Jorick and Katelina are sitting in front of a gas station, the day after escaping from a horde of vampires who were trying to kill them.)

“But, I still need to go to work tomorrow.”

“I wouldn’t,”Jorick commented casually as he took the cigarette again.

Katelina glared as he took another puff. “You know, for someone who thinks I should ‘stay quit’…”

“Yeah, well,” he handed it back. “As I was saying, I wouldn’t go if I were you. I’m sure they know where you work, and they’re not above recruiting humans when they need something done in the daytime.”

(This is harder to do than you’d think!)

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.

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.  His mouth remained a tight–lipped line, though his eyes, dark and warm, seemed to be smiling at her.
