Six Sentence Sunday June 17, 2012


Hello again,
          Changing gears this week... I've been posting lines from my contemporary romance novel, All For Love, due out in September, but I also have a Young Adult novel coming out about the same time.  So today's  snippet comes from my YA novel, The Phantom Student, book two in The Phantom Series.  It is due to be published by Cool Well Press in late Sept/early Oct.  
         This scene is being narrated by Stevie-girl, my thirteen year old protag who has just found something--or someone--strange in her bathroom mirror:
  
          When I opened my eyes again, I almost screamed.  The reflection in the mirror was looking away from me.  It was looking toward the door.
            My flesh tried to crawl off my bones.
            The face in the mirror, the one that should have been mine but somehow wasn’t, slowly turned back toward me.  Then she began to twist and twirl-about like a runaway kite caught in a whirlwind.


Okay, that's all for now.  Hope you check back next Sunday for another snippet.  If you want to read some more juicy excerpts from other authors, just go here: http://www.sixsunday.com/

    LOVE IT!
