Something new this week ~ Six Sentence Sunday!


I’m trying something new this week — Six Sentence Sunday!
The idea is to find six interesting evocative sentences from your novel and put them out as a teaser. Here’s a bit from Dreamscape.

Setting the stage ~

Blurb: Unable to deny his own translucence, Dr. Jason Bowen determines his lack of physical substance could only mean one thing—he’s a ghost. Murdered more than a century before, Jason haunts his house and ponders the treachery that took his life. When Lanie O’Keefe arrives with plans to renovate her newly purchased Victorian mansion, Jason discovers, ghost or not, he’s still very much a man. Despite its derelict condition and haunted reputation, Lanie couldn’t be happier with her new home, but then she has no idea a spirit follows her every move throughout the day and shares her captivating warmth at night. Jason soon discovers he can travel through Lanie’s dreams and finds himself reliving the days before his murder with Lanie by his side. It took one hundred and twenty years for love to find them, but there’s that insurmountable little matter of Jason being dead.

These six sentences come from several chapters into the novel. At this point Lanie has lucidly entered her Victorian dream world. There Jason tries his best to explain the truth of him in her modern world. He’s a ghost.

~~~

He searched for the best way to explain all as he knew it. “The truth of me, Lanie, is I am an ephemeral spirit of current and force no different than electricity or magnetism and as unsubstantial as smoke. As such, I’ve traveled your dream world with you.”

“You’re saying you’re able to jump into my dreams?” She sat up and faced him. What she’d always thought to be her dreams were really their dreams?

~~~

Fun huh? Check out the other talented writers taking part in Six Sentence Sunday. Find them here: http://www.sixsunday.com/
