SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY #9 #sixsunday


Good Sunday, everyone.

Thank you all so much for revisiting my blog each week.

I’m switching things up this week. My short story, Marked, will be released in the Into the Unknown anthology, and to celebrate it’s upcoming launch, I shall spend the next 8/9 weeks sharing excerpts of the tale written from Sean’s PoV.

Here’s the first 6 on offer; hope you enjoy:

The guy behind the counter snapped alert like a predator who’d smelled the scent of fresh blood. The glint in his eyes did nothing to lessen the impression either, as his selling smile slid across his face like a mask. “Good afternoon.” His well-spoken hide carried a redolence of carbolic soap and medicated shampoo.

After allowing him a nod, I headed for the opposite counter—until greeted by an expression to match the sales assistant’s, but from a woman. Although the shine in her eyes held more warmth than hunger, the perfume she’d doused herself in had the potency of a top-grade repellent.

Hmmmm … Sean Holloway … shopping? What on earth could he be shopping for that appears to have him on edge? Could the hot werewolf be up to no good?

For a hint of what kind of store he could be in, check back next week, and 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?

  1. Wow, I love how Sean views the salesman, as a predator, gives me great insight into his [Sean’s] character, too. And hmmm, what could he be shopping for? ^_~ Nice six, I’m looking forward to next week 🙂

  2. I like how scents play such a powerful role in your story. With most stories we get auditory, visual and tactile, but never enough olefactory. You do an excellent job describing the scents.

  3. Very nicely written, REALLY liked being in this character’s head, but I didn’t understand the term ‘well-spoken hide’… sounds like his skin is speaking instead of his mouth.
