#sixsunday #samplesunday -- Oh, to be admired.


Last week--for the last official Six Sunday post (wah) -- I shared the opening scene from what was a work-in-progress. Seal the Deal, Isle of Man and Selkie book one, is now out on submission with Decadent Publishing (cross ya fingers for me).
I thought I'd carry on from almost where I left of. So...here it is. Finn Kneale is prepping for 'the change' viable due to the energy shift of the Isle and the leap year eclipse.
Don't forget, this is pre-edited. So there may be boo-boos.

Think, Finn, think.
Soft cotton towels against his whiskers, the warm touch of the sun on his shoulders as he worked the farm, tasty homemade soup tangy on his tongue. Soft flesh of a woman beneath him. Oh, to be admired for his manliness rather than his cutesy seal features and bubble blowing talents. Fragmented recollections of the little things was all that had survived years of watching the shoreline.
Tensing, he pulled his attention to how much he needed legs again.. -- Copyright, JoAnne Kenrick - 2013+
