The Very Last Six Sentence Sunday

January 27, 2013

I wasn’t one of the original Fab Four, but I have been doing Six Sentence Sunday for a long, long time now and it is with some sorrow that I say good-bye to this very fun exercise.

Thank you Sara Brookes—for everything.

So, for my last entry, here are the first six sentences from Knightly Desire, my coming-soon Fantasy Romance from Ellora’s Cave. And I’m super excited to share the cover later this week!

Brant’s horse shifted uneasily beneath him as he surveyed the valley. For five days, he and his men had chased the barbarians on their haphazard course of destruction across the countryside. Now the bulk of the enemy lay below, entrenched in the shadows of the thick forest. He intended to engage them today and drive them back across the border into their own lands, where they belonged.

Something stirred among the gnarled, twisted trees and an involuntary shiver prickled his spine, the stories of the ancient creatures that supposedly roamed the wilds looming large in his mind. Brant was too old to believe in such tales, but he was also old enough to not entirely disbelieve them either.

Thank you everyone for such a great run! I LOVED doing this weekly post with every single one of you!

    You pulled me right in, you always do that. Love it, looking forward to the cover. I too will miss your 6s, you’re one of my favorites. You really should consider still doing them, pretty please 🙂
