#SixSunday — A little suspense from The P.U.R.E.

Welcome to “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you might feel inclined to offer.

This six comes from my forthcoming debut novel, The P.U.R.E. (releasing April 16, 2012). In this scene, our heroine, Gayle, is in her bedroom changing after returning from a traumatic rendezvous.

I opened my dresser drawer and a movement in the mirror caught my attention. Raising my eyes, I detected a shift in my closet door. I froze.

My mind flipped through a series of possibilities, some realistic, others entirely too fantastic thanks to an obsession with horror novels. The cockroaches grew pretty large in Texas, but I’d never seen any muscular enough to move a door, certainly not in my apartment.

Please, anything but a human…or zombie.

Zombie Influx

Uh-oh. Who or what might be in Gayle’s closet or is her imagination running wild?

Come back tomorrow too.  I’ll be unveiling my book trailer that I’m very, very proud of, especially since I did about 99% of it myself and learned a new software program in the process! I’ll be just like Michael Scott from The Office–“I made it on my Mac.”  LOL

Be sure to check out the host site, Six Sentence Sunday, for links to more tantalizing snippets from some very talented writers.

  1. Given the evidence in your six and fact that I was one of the lucky few to preview the blockbuster-like trailer, I deduce the culprit to be a Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome. How is that for detective work?

    Sensational six, Claire!

  2. Oooh…that scary moment when you see something out of the corner of your eye; something moving in the dark, something that shouldn’t be there.. Spooky!

    And +1,000,000 awesomeness points for mentioning Michael Scott. LOL The Office is my favorite show ever!

  3. Fun. Fun. Fun. Reminds me of a dream I had as a kid when a mummy came out of the closet. Scary things always hide in closets (and under the bed. Don’t want to fall asleep with your arm hanging over the side!). Looking forward to more snippets and the release.

I'm dying to know what you think?
