Six Sentence Sunday - 7/17/11

I'm going to continue the scene from last week's SSS snippet.  Kane is seeing a vision after drinking a glass of blood from the Grand Oracle of the Council of 12. Enjoy!

She was beautiful.  Long dark hair; full, round lips. Her cafe au lait complexion stood in stark contrast to the deep-set brown eyes that stared past him.  She was smiling, but he could see that the emotion didn't reach her eyes.  Her eyes held a pain that he knew all to well. They were haunted.

Six Sentence Sunday - 7/10/11

Thanks so much for coming back to my SSS posts!  I've been on a 2 weeks break getting ready for, then attending the Romance Writers of America National Conference.  I "think" I've recovered :). I know I'm definitely ready to get back to my writing!

So here's this weeks SSS entry. I'm picking up where I left on 2 weeks ago.  Kane has just down a half glass of blood from the most powerful Oracle ever known.

The blood numbed his tongue and the walls of his throat as he swallowed. It was richer than anything he had ever tasted. A burst of power exploded in his mind, radiating through his body like an electric pulse. He closed his eyes as flashes of light filled his vision.  Images of a woman began to form. She was beautiful.

See you next week!

My Week At Pictures!

For those of you who follow me on Twitter you know that I tried to Tweet all of the fun happenings during my stay in NYC while attending my very first Romance Writers of American National Convention. *bites fist* MAN! I had a blast!

I met so many new people and finally saw Tweeps "face to face"!! I gushed over my favorite authors and in some cases I stalked them.... in a GOOD way though. I can honestly say -- with a STRAIGHT FACE... Lara Adrian is now my BFF! 

So rather than go into crazy detail for the events of each day -- I'm just going to do a pictorial with comments.  Because in the end - the week in NY was such a whirlwind dance.... it will take me weeks to come off my high!  So.. here I go!
