Six Sentence Sunday - The Healing and The Dying

Soooo, who wants a little nibble of the sequel to The Given & The Taken?

Here it is, the first snippet of The Healing & The Dying, wherein we join Ian and Darius during some much needed downtime. Ian is still new to being a vampire, and hasn't quite gotten to the point of being able to feed without gagging

“You’ll get used to it.”

“Ever learn to like it?”

“Well, I don’t know that anyone ever gets to the point of being a connoisseur, but…”

Ian snorted. “Oh, wouldn’t that be a sight?” Adopting a snobby tone, he said, “This Type A is ambitious and has a lovely bouquet, but the aftertaste suggests it was donated on someone’s lunch break with a rusty used needle and a cholesterol-filled tube.”

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. Ha! You know I love your writing, and this was too funny! A million words? I'm hyperventilating at 170k before June-July!

  2. Thank you both!

    Cassandra - I *try* for a million every year, but didn't quite make it last year (that whole "moving overseas" thing kinda threw a monkey wrench into stuff). But this year? This year I'm making it.

  3. Ha, love this. And yay for hearing there's a sequel!
