Six Sentence Sunday 11/20/2011

20 Nov

Hi!  Please feel free to browse my blog and if you like what you see, sign up for email updates on the left or scroll down to follow through the networked blogs icon!  (Thanks to my lovely daughter for adding that) 🙂

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thanks for taking the time to visit.  I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my snippet.  Each week I will post another six from a work in progress or a finished manuscript.  All you have to do is read and enjoy.  That’s it!

Since starting Six Sentence Sunday I’ve been posting from Some Like it in Handcuffs which is being released on March 23, 2012 by The Wild Rose Press…but I’ve decided to put that story away until it’s closer to release date and will now post from my current wip, Some Like it on the Run, which features Derek Kennedy, brother to Sunny, the heroine from Some Like it in Handcuffs.  (whew, that was a confusing to say…lol)

Quick set up…Sunny has called her brother Derek to help one of her friends who’s in trouble and also just happens to be his one time girlfriend.  The girl that got away…

He pounded the steering with his fist as he rounded the last curve inside the parking ramp.  His heart thudded against his ribs as he spotted Sunny’s late night emergency.

Kelly Hartford stood leaning against her notice-me red car.  Her trademark blood red lipsticked mouth puckered and she blew a pink bubble which covered the lower half of her face.  Their gazes met and held over the curved edge of the billowy bubble.  Some things never changed, like Kelly’s love of bubble gum along with the tower high stilettos strapped to her feet, which caused her legs to stretch to the moon and then some.

I hope you enjoyed these six.  For more great previews from other authors please click on SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY. Or join next week with six of your own. 🙂

Happy Reading!

    Very nice 🙂
    “which caused her legs to stretch to the moon and then some.” Is a wonderful sentence 🙂
    You might want to rephrase one of the first two sentences. The way it is now, they have exactly the same structure which makes them feel fragmented in stead of part of the same whole.
    “her notice-me red car” is a great description.
    Thank you for sharing 🙂

    You have a way with descriptions, worded the way I like. Question: did he pound on the steering wheel? I’m guessing so. You really give your characters depth. Excellent work.

    • ChristineWarner

      November 21, 2011 at 8:13 am

      Okay, you read me to easily! Yes, he pounded on that damn steering wheel. LOL…love it that you know me just a tad too well 🙂

    Great six. Was she a girlfriend at one time or a one-time girlfriend (as in one night stand)? 🙂 Isn’t my humor hilarious? Please don’t hold it against me. . . . . .
