Congrats to Six Sentence Sunday and my 2nd six sentence Sunday submission

More celebrations at
Ooooh! Cupcakes! Now it's a party! Now six sentences from Bride of the Living Dead (actual 1st several pages can be read in the widget at the right):

Indie film critic Daria meets Oscar at the almost-deserted showing of a terrible film. A handshake introduction produces such an surge of lust that Daria realizes she's trembling. Now they are alone in the screening room except for Ernie, the tech guy, who's packing up to go.

His hand was warm and his touch calmed me down a little--grounded me.
Neither of us said anything for a minute, but we kept smiling at each other after he let go of my hand, as if our bodies were communicating all on their own and waiting for our minds to catch up. Maybe they were. I was having the best time I’d had in--forever...
Meanwhile Ernie shut off the lights and propped the door open meaningfully.
"I think we have to go," I said.

My 1st Six Sentence Sunday post

I could not resist joining in the fun these other writers are having, sharing six sentences from their books each Sunday. So here's my first Sunday six from Bride of the Living Dead, a romantic comedy about Daria, a woman who loves horror movies too much and a fateful encounter:

            "This may sound weird, but right this moment, more than anything, I don’t want you to go off into the night and never see you again." Then he smiled, a silly lopsided grin, but totally endearing. "Am I making any sense at all?"
            I realized I was in deep trouble here.
            "Everything you’ve said so far makes perfect sense to me. Of course, we both could be crazy."

Happy Sunday everyone, thanks for stopping by and check out some of the other great posts at

Inspiration from Six Sunday

When Lauri J. Owen told me about the fun everyone was having at posting six lines every Sunday from their book(s)--be they past, present or works-in-progress, it sounded like something I wanted to do. But I had to face the fact that I didn't have a blog simply devoted to my books to post it on. So I borrowed the header my web diva created for my web page and here is that blog.

I think it will also be a good place to post other book-related stuff. This blog is brand new, but I didn't want to miss the next Sunday six sentence fun, so I'm kicking off the blog now and I'll connect more dots, add more links and generally polish up what I can as I go along.
