An Elusive Six Sentence Sunday

Pssst! Pass on the good news: The charity release, Matrimonial Mayhem, is now available. For just $5, you can help the tornado-stricken areas in Alabama, knowing 100% of your donation will be sent to benefit the Governor of Alabama’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, for the hardest hit areas of the state, and you get an e-book with 6 brand new stories from Astraea Press authors.

And now, on to my SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY OFFERING.  From upcoming release Elusive Echoes -you know how those women in labor can be so outspoken…..

Sandy moaned again and her face became ashen. “Oh, for crying out loud, I’m asking you to help me deliver my baby, not have sex with me.” With a grunt, she squeezed her eyes shut and breathed through the contraction. “If you’d have sex with Melanie, you’d know the difference by now.”

Sean’s choked response echoed back at him from across the room. His head snapped up and his eyes widened when he caught sight of Mel standing just inside the kitchen door.

Return to Six Sentence Sunday or enjoy the Elusive Echoes BLURB:

Six-year-old Melanie Mitchell and seven-year-old Sean McGee became best friends the day Sean’s mother died. Drawn together by their mutual love of horses, the two seemed destined for each other. At thirteen, however, Melanie was wrenched from the life and people she loved and forced into a life she loathed, with people she loathed even more.

Returning to Orson’s Folly at age twenty-one, all she wanted to do was forget the years she spent away from the small town, and go back to life the way it used to be. But although she and Sean were still attracted to each other, the unquestioning bond of trust and friendship they had enjoyed as children had been broken, seemingly beyond repair. They couldn’t move forward, and they couldn’t let go.

Now, seven years later, they’re still caught between friendship and something more, and Melanie’s past has broadsided her. She must confront her demons and relive her past in an unexpected way, or risk losing the only man she has ever loved…knowing that even if she succeeds, she may lose him anyway. ~Available June 2011

    There are arguments you know in advance you’re gonna lose. Sean, quit while you’re ahead.

    The jig is definitely up, Sean. So much stuff packed into this six. Good job.

    And good luck and best wishes on Matrimonial Mayhem. It’s a lovely, wonderful thing to do.
