Six Sentence Sunday - Where There's Smoke

Haven't been able to participate the last couple of weeks, but Six Sentence Sunday is back for more...

This week, from L. A. Witt, a nibble of Where There's Smoke, my current work-in-progress...

Want to play along? It’s fun and easy!
1. pick a project – a current WIP, contracted work or even something readers can buy if you’re published
2. pick six sentences
3. post ‘em on Sunday


  1. Oh, now I want to know what happens. Nice six.

  2. Wonderful six, full of anticipation. Great job.

  3. Sensational six! Sounds like this is a great story, can't wait for more...

  4. Liking this, a the anticipation. Me want more!

  5. He's very intriguing! And I have a soft spot for the title. (I have a paranormal with the same name.);) Great six!

  6. Nice way to up the stakes. Makes me want to read more. (I love first person, BTW.)
