Welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday. I’m sure I’m not the only one saddened to know SSS will be coming to an end in early 2013. I’ve met many incredible authors and readers through SSS, and have developed several friendships as a result. I will miss my regular Sunday excursions, hopping blog to blog, reading the latest SSS snippets. Although I don’t know them personally, I applaud the administrators of the SSS site for making the whole thing possible and allowing me to play in their arena for a while.
This Sunday’s six is once again from Weathering Rock (my paranormal / time-travel coming in October from Lyrical Press). For a short video book trailer showcasing what the story is about, please visit my Weathering Rock page.
For the last few weeks I’ve been leading up to a dinner date between Caleb DeCardian and Arianna Hart. Next week I’m going to get them together. Promise! 🙂
This week, I wanted to share a glimpse of the 19th century home where Caleb lives since it’s central to the book and the novel carries its title. I’ve chosen my six just as Arianna is arriving for her date with Caleb:
The sun was sinking toward the horizon when she pulled up the drive at Weathering Rock. The fading light cast long shadows over the grass and drew eddies of tangerine and gold from the front windows. The house looked different during the day, its three-story height imposing. She hadn’t considered it closely when she’d left Saturday morning, but now realized a series of lightning rods jutted from the roof. They varied in size, some ornate and engraved with elaborate scrollwork, others plain. It made her think of the ball lightning she and Caleb had seen, and how reluctant he’d been to acknowledge it.
Next week, onward with the date! 🙂
Hope you enjoyed the snippet. Be sure to hop by the SSS site for more participating authors and gobble up some great reads!
