Hard to believe this is the last six sunday via www.sixsunday.com. Hopefully, y'all keep it up with the hashtag #sixsunday ;) Because on the Sundays I can take part, I love doing so. It's been--and hopefully continues to be--a real pleasure reading your snippets and cheering you all on for submissions, contract congratulations, and new release news!
For this week, I thought I'd share from a WIP. I've not done that for ages, and typically share from my most current release. But this week is special, right?
Without any more fussing, here's a six from a new 1NS trilogy I've been working on. There are all kinds of shifters in this collection, but is mostly centered on Selkies. It should be ready to submit pretty soon (it's with critique readers as we speak), so hopefully I've got good news to share soon.
SEAL THE DEAL, Isle of Man and Selkie book1
The opening six
The sequence of events he longed for had begun.
He didn’t think another lunar eclipse on February 29th would be possible; he had to move fast or perhaps miss the last—and only—opportunity to undo the oceanic spell shrouding him in misery. Sliding from his watch-point rock a few miles out from the little tourist trap, Port St. Mary, he delved into the depths of the icy Irish Sea. Water lapping at him, he twisted and clapped his flippers over the foamy surface. Icy waves crashed over his seal self. He barked then unleashed another and another, each increasing in volume for the benefit of his aquatic friends.
