6 Sentence Sunday -- The Phantom Student July8, 2012

Hi folks,
It's time for another 6 Sentence Sunday.  This snippet is taken from The Phantom Student which will be released soon from Cool Well Press.  It is book two of The Phantom Series.  In this scene, Jase and Stevie-girl are riding to school shortly after Stevie saw the strange image in her bathroom mirror--the image that seemed to be a reflection but looked away from her instead of directly at her.  They are passing by the abandoned elementary school when Stevie gets an odd feeling:




      The old building was elegant, somehow.  The curved windows and brick courtyard gave it an air of gentility that the modern glass and concrete school just didn’t possess.              
      Jase had started riding again, slowly:  "You okay?" 
      I nodded; I couldn’t seem to speak.  As we put the school behind us, I turned for one more look and there in the window beside the front door, a small face was staring out.  She had wild white hair and pale, pale skin.  



Okay, th-th-th-that's all folks!  For this week, at least.  Check back next week for another installment.  Should I continue with The Phantom Student, or should I revert to snippets from All For Love, my contemporary romance that's coming out soon?  And don't forget to check out other snippets here: http://www.sixsunday.com/

  4. This is good :-) Is this YA, Ann? I've developed quite a fondness for YA books. :-) The Phantom Pilot is book number 1? I'll be back to read more. :-) Have a great week.

  7. How old is old? I think of curved glass as fairly modern. (My elementary had glass brick, but then that was right after WWII.)

    1. Actually, the glass itself wasn't curved just the shape of the window...like an arch.
