Six Sentence Sunday #5


Welcome to this week’s Six Sentence Sunday post! (Visit the other fab writers here.) I continue to post from Blowing Embers, the second book in The Embers Series, set to be released this summer. Visit BE's page for the exciting video trailer!

Oh – you should know that Kiera is walking back to her apartments, carrying two bottles of her favorite wine, when she stumbles into the middle of a fight between a shapeshifter and a mid-level mage . . .



Faster than she could blink, the someone turned and flat-palmed her cheek, then shoved her backward. Without arms for balance, Kiera stumbled back, once, twice, comically, and sat down hard on the ground. Her right hand tried to brace for the fall and glass shards from the broken bottle bit into her palm. The crash the bottle made as it flew apart came after.
Stunned, she sat for a moment on the ground, watching the blackness of the spilled wine soak into the snow. A shadow blocked the scant light, then passed, and she looked up.

  1. Hi Lauri. Great action sequence and I love the "flat palmed" and description of the bottle crashing. The picture is such a perfect fit, too. Great six.
