Six Sentence Sunday #2

DEL
Greetings, Kittens!

I'm thrilled that so many of you enjoyed the glimpse into A WAY TO A DRAGON'S HEART last week and I thought it only right to bring you more. This follows directly after last week's offering.

Enjoy.


 


Firmly ignoring the too-cute, too-blond, too-perky, Barbie clone, Kryssa continued the tour to the
break room, explaining the shelving and territorial marking of foodstuffs. Just when she thought the dedicated over-talking of the girl had imparted a clue to the temp, it—she—took Kryssa’s arm.

“You’re like, warm and stuff.”

Large, chocolate eyes gave a slow blink as she looked at the girl. Taking that extra breath before speaking, just like they’d taught in anger management, Kryssa tucked a glossy black spiral curl behind her ear and sighed. “The air conditioner is on low and it’s eighty-nine degrees outside, not to mention I’m Therian and run hot; so what exactly is the mystery?”
           The bubbly twit smiled, tilted her head, and gave an affectionate squeeze, confirming the suspicion she had indeed originated from the head cheerleading rung of hell.

I love her too and I love doing these and revisiting the story before edits and release this October. She's such a great mix of attitude and vulnerability and so much fun. I can't wait for you all to get to meet her in full in a few months!

No matter what planet, there always seems to be the "cheerleaders".

Nice six.

Re: SSS
One must always have cheerleaders and some portion of them must always be annoying. It's a rule of the multiverse! :)

I wonder if Kryssa teaches the cheerleader a thing or do about personal space. ;) I definitely want to read more!

Show me a novel with Dragons and I'm soooo there. The descriptive, vivid sentences held me. Love the cover too!

Very well done. This book is sure to be a hit!

Yep, Dragons indeed. Glad you like it!

Something happened tho, sweetie. I'm seeing parenthesis instead of html, something happened. I'll look for you to see what happened, maybe LJ did something.

Re: SSS #2
Thanks! AWTADH was originally written as a stand alone, but a last minute revision left it open and I realize I miss her. Hopefully, I'll get to revisit and see where everything went.
