sss23 - savor the moment

HUGE thanks for all who stopped by my six last week, and for all the wicked feedback. I got a major author-buzz when I read the comments and discovered you were all touched by Rachel's scene from Sweet Irish Kiss link to last weeks six xx Hugs to you all, I only hope you find this weeks six just as entertaining.

DRACULA'S KISS coming this October to Decadent Publishing's 1NS ( 1 NightStand ) series.

Unable to control her wonderment that Bram Stoker might have crossed this very path while writing Dracula, she stalled to savor the moment and placed her hand on the 16th century stone doorframe. Like they do on those late-night paranormal documentaries. Residual energy from her favorite writer didn't mystically hit her, though. Not that she expected it to. Hoped maybe. Instead, salty air from the North Sea filled her nostrils, and overzealous goth music vibrated through the ground and into the soles of her feet. Heavy, aggressive, and forced. -- (c) All rights reserved, JoAnne Kenrick. Disclaimer; this a pre-edit snippet and may appear differently in the finished product.


New to Six Sentence Sunday and wondering what the heck this is all about, pop on over to SENTENCE SUNDAY to check it out.

  20. Clearly things have changed since Bram Stoker passed this way. (I'm assuming the location is Whitby?) Nice setup, especially with the tongue-in-cheek reference to paranormal documentaries.

  30. Jo, I love the six. But have you considered perhaps upping the sentence count? Six is like opening a box of donuts, and just getting to smell them. Makes me hungry and I want more.

  31. Nice! Dracula is one of my favourite books of all time ;)

  32. Great descriptions in there. I love the idea that she was hoping for a little psychic inspiration from Stoker, and got the smell of the sea instead!
