Welcome to my third “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you might leave me.
This six comes from an urban fantasy novel I completed a first draft of late last year, book 1 from The Land Of Enchantment series: My Fair Vampire.
In this scene, newly created vampire, Dori, and her vampire sire, Donovan, have it out after he reveals the truth about her dead mother.
I advanced on him. “All this time I thought I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, that you’d preyed on me at random. How fucking random could it have been if you knew my mother and knew about me!” I slapped him across his face, hard, but he showed no sign it affected him any more than the brush of a butterfly’s wings.
“Feel better?” he asked.
I plan at least two more novels in the series: My Fair Phoenix and My Fair Gargoyle. The world needs more urban fantasy set in the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico!!
Be sure to check out the host site, Six Sentence Sunday, for links to more tantalizing snippets from some very talented writers.
Once again, your sense of humour shines through in your snippet. Cool 6.
So … when you gonna get this one out there, then? 🙂
I dunno…I just got some marvelous beta reader feedback a couple of months ago but then set the editing aside to work on my superhero novella, my YA novel, then The PURE. Now I’m feeling the pull again and have started thinking of the plot for book #2, even thinking about teeing it up for NaNo…but, well, I dunno. There just aren’t enough hours in the day sometimes.
Oh, that’s great! Sounds like a great story. Sensational six, Claire!
Thanks, Sandra! I’m glad you liked it. Dori and Donovan have some of the best skirmishes of any two characters I’ve ever written.
Love her assertiveness! And also really like your concept for the series! Best of luck with the writing, and I look forward to reading more of your Six Sunday posts!
Thank you, Amy! This was my first foray into paranormal / UF and I kinda liked it.
I really like this Claire. Her emotion really comes through nicely. Urban fantasy rocks and so does your writing!
Aww, you’re very kind, Ryan. Thanks for the read and lovely comment.
I like those lines at the end, after the slap, hehe! Nice sample here, I love a good vampire story. I’m hooked, er, bitten, teehee ^_^
I love vampires too…just wish they didn’t make some people’s eyes roll these days…sigh…Thanks for the read and comment! 🙂
I can feel the anger. Great delivery! I can’t wait to read more.
Thanks, Angela. These 2 don’t see eye to eye that often.
I’m smiling. Yes, slapping him would make her feel better. Loved the scene, Claire!
Thanks, Randi. I appreciate the read and nice comment.
Great scene – I can feel her anger. I hope you will post more from this story!
Thank you, Carly! I will probably do a few more six from this one for a bit.
He sounds so cool and composed! Would love to see more from this, Claire. 🙂
Thanks, Zee. Donovan’s deadly cool is what makes him so intriguing (I hope anyway). I’ll probably post a few more from MFV.
Thanks Sam! I appreciate the read and encouragement.
Great six with the last line really the best
Thanks for the read and nice comment, Lindsay! 🙂
hehehehee. I KNEW I recognized that little scene. 🙂 Go Dori! 😉
Those little sparks of backbone she shows are so fun when they emerge. Thanks, Aimee! 🙂
Thanks for the read and comment, Taryn! 🙂
Wicked! And … when can I read the rest of this one?
Oy! I dunno… so many projects, so little time.
Really like this one. So much interesting stuff happening here. Would love to read more.
Thanks, Eleri. I’ll try to give MFV a few more shots in the weeks ahead.
That kind of action can always be cathartic, lol. Thanks for sharing!
