Six Sentence Sunday #1

Writing is love

Greetings, Kittens!

It's my first Six Sentence Sunday and I bring you a glimpse at the opening of A WAY TO A DRAGON'S HEART, coming out in October with Liquid Silver Books.

Enjoy.



2x3
 

“So, you like, get scaly, and big, and stuff?”


               Kryssa Drake gritted her teeth and counted to five. What she wanted to do was get scaly, and big, and stuff, and eat the annoying young woman following her around the office loft, but Human Resources had warned her about doing that again. Not that she’d actually eaten the other temps, but the way that last one had hollered you’d have thought she had him half swallowed when security showed up. It’s what they got for sending irritating, yet crunchy and salty-good humans during her period. It was a conspiracy.

"had warned her about doing that again." - My fav line.

Re: Hilarious
I'm so glad you liked it! I plan to share more from the first chapter so you all can see what Kryssa really thinks about the temp and those before her. So wonderful to hear from you! :)

Honestly, it all takes us in different ways. She just craves salty humans instead of salty pretzels during that "special" time. :)

Crispy Critters?
TOO funny! This gives a whole new meaning to the term "temps." I love "crunchy and salty-good."

Right? Sounds like something stamped on the side of a snack bag when you think about it that way. *grin*
