Six Sentence Sunday - Where There's Smoke

More Six Sentence Sunday!

This week, a little bite of Where There's Smoke, which will be out on Tuesday from Loose Id, LLC:

The last thing I needed was my damned campaign manager catching on that in spite of his intimidating presence, he was also attractive as all hell. His features were as sharp and rigid as his presence, and I wasn’t sure I was ready to find out what it was like to be the center of his attention, even for the span of a conversation. There were people who could make someone feel like they were the only person in the world. I had a funny feeling Anthony Hunter could make someone feel like they were the only suspect in the world.

And this was the guy who’d be running my campaign. Between drooling over him and being intimidated by him, I was fucked.

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 your blog or website on Sunday


  1. Great 6.
    Loved the last line best! Totally feel for the poor guy!
    Love your writing and this draws me in like always.

  2. Um, yeah, something tells me he's in *big* trouble. Great six!

  3. This sounds like a great story - lots of possibilities!
    I also read your essay on "When is it Cheating" on Reviews by Jessewave - and I would agree with your points in the essay. Cheating is something done in secret, behind someone's back, the deception hurts and there is the collateral damage done to the one cheated on.
    If any of your fans have not read your essay, please post the link on your site as well as your post on Twitter as I think many people will agree with the point of view presented of cheating - it is not completely black and white!

  4. Love your six this week. She's gotten herself into quite the pickle.

  5. This is going to make for great tension. I love this snippet--very well written and a great choice for a 6. Congrats on your release on Tuesday! <3
