Six Sentence Sunday -- Conduct Unbecoming

So I have been up to my ears in craziness the last few weeks, and completely neglected to post anything for Six Sentence Sunday. But I'm back!

Today, six sentences from my contemporary military romance, Conduct Unbecoming, which comes out October 23rd (and is already available for pre-order!):

The fact that we were gay was the least of our problems if we kept doing this. If we were younger, things would have been different. If I were a freshly commissioned ensign and he were a seaman straight out of boot camp, we wouldn’t have had so much at stake. As it was, we were both too close to retirement to fuck up our careers. Some twenty-one-year-old getting kicked out still had a chance to start a new career, but a thirty-five-year-old who pissed away a solid fifteen-plus-year career with an other-than-honorable discharge due to conduct unbecoming a gentleman? Yeah, that would look fucking spectacular on a résumé.

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. Man, I'm looking forward to this. I love the dynamic and tension inherent in the situation, and this looks like it's going to pay off big time.

  2. At least they know what's at stake, very intriguing, I loved the hero's tone in this excerpt, definitely want to read more. Great six!

  3. Oh jeez! Great internal angst here.

  4. Your narrator has his head in the right place and his eyes open. He also has a highly appealing voice. Very nice.
