The idea behind this fun collective is to find six interesting evocative sentences from your novel and put them out as a teaser. I’ve pored over my two books and found some I hope captures your imagination. Dozens of talented writers take part. Find the links to their blogs and webpages here: http://www.sixsunday.com/
Here’s a bit from Dreamscape, but first I must set 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.
The following six is found several chapters in. At this point Lanie is well aware of the particularly handsome apparition haunting her house. Used to being alone and popping in and out of rooms at whim, Jason wasn’t prepared for this encounter…
Coming upon the stunning sight left him thunderstruck. Glistening beads of water sparkled all over her body, and her wet hair, obviously just fluffed with her towel, hung in thick, ebony ringlets. Completely missing the fact he wasn’t invisible, he whispered in awe, “If I had breath, you’d take it away.”
Startled, she whirled around at the sound of his voice, and her large blue eyes met his. The light blush started at her cheeks and ended just above her pale pink nipples. She looked to the bed and back at him, resisting the urge to dive under the sheets to hide herself.
How’s that? 😀
So yes, I did say I had news to post last week. For now I’ll just say the day I planned to post on was devoted to a much greater cause. I’ve a busy week ahead but I will be adding more.
