So through the magic of social media, I've heard about Six Sentence Sunday.
The Premise is simple: On Sunday, authors (published or not) post six sentences from one of their books. It could be a book that is already sold, a book you are trying to sell, or a book you are still writing and have no idea if it will ever be sold or not.
Bottom line: Anything goes, just make sure you are the one who wrote it.
It sounded fun to me. I'm one of those people who likes this type of thing - sneak peaks and spoilers make me happy. So, as is the way of most of my decisions, I said, "Why not?"
For my first post, I'm going to share a snippet of a WIP, one that will be heading off to my editor in about a week. The set-up is basically greek gods in the modern world.
Here is the first six sentences from Chapter 1
“Now this is one nymph I wasn’t expecting to see.”
The feather light feel of soft lips against her earlobe combined with that voice rich as warmed cognac had Electra squirming in her seat in instinctive reaction. “You shouldn’t sneak up on women like that, Cupid,” she said, but the admonishment was all fake indignation and the puff of laughter that ghosted her ear told her Cupid knew it.
Electra swung away from ogling the current stripper on stage to angle her body towards the male who started naughty stirrings in her libido. Cupid looked edible as always, sun streaked blond hair and grey-blue eyes that devoured you in long strokes. His face was hard enough to be masculine but so perfectly proportioned it was only a shade away from being called beautiful, with dimples that promised heaven and a mouth that guaranteed it.
Of course, I'll let you know how selling this puppy goes
