MARKED {INTO THE UNKNOWN} #sixsunday


Good Sunday, everyone!

Thank you all for returning to my blog each week to read my snippets.

Anyone who has been following knows that Sean Holloway has been secretly shopping for something secret. This week? His big brother Ethan thinks he’s found the solution. From Marked, in the Into the Unknown anthology due out December 1st:

Beneath the harsh glare of supermarket strip lights, Ethan waved a packet beneath my nose. I dragged my focus from the crinkly plastic and gave him my disbelief full force. “You’ve got to be kidding me.”

“No.” He rustled the packaging in front of my eyes. “Come on, admit it—it’s genius.”

Ethan–so full of his own worth, hehehe.

I hope you have enjoyed sharing in my Marked samples. Alas, this is the last week I shall be sharing them. Not because I’m stepping down from 6SS, though–but because, starting next week, I shall be sharing sentences from Instinct–a Sean Holloway novella. So if you’ve enjoyed this tale of his, please come back to share in another one.

Cheers for stopping by. Links to the other participants can be found HERE—you should check them out—or why not sign up and join in the fun yourself?

    Great pace, I was watching the packet swinging and hear it rustle.

    Hahaha, the supermarket? My first thought is a prime cut of beef, lol, but since she already has Sean, the choicest piece out there, well, I’m stumped. And will be returning next week to see if you reveal any more :D nice six, lady!

      Sean most certainly is the choicest piece. Though some might argue that Ethan is. ;) And this is your last snippet from this tale this week, as it’s due out on the 1st. :)

    Ethan often thinks he’s a genius, doesn’t he? ;)

      That’s because he is one. Ha! :)

    Way to keep us guessing and in suspense, Julie! Great characters. Congrats on the release of the anthology!

    Given that it’s two brothers speaking, I’ve ruled out condoms…but tis intriguing indeed.

    Oh, I so want to know what packet makes him said “you’ve got to be kidding me.” Kool-aid? Foil-wrapped baseball cards? Starburst? LOL Fun six, JA! :)

      I couldn’t possibly say. Thanks for stopping by, Siobhan. :)

    Keeping us guessing, huh? Now what comes wrapped in crinkly plastic in a supermarket?

      Hmm, yes, what exactly? Hehe. Thanks for stopping by, SueAnn
