Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome to my SSS! For the next two months, I'm going to highlight one of my Zodiac books, Capricorn: Forgotten Faces. It's a finalist in the Paranormal Romance category for the 2012 Epic eBook Awards this year, but I figure it's appropriate for the upcoming months.

Some call Caleb the Angel of Death, but he knows better. He doesn’t kill. He erases life. Centuries ago, the Higher Powers created him to walk the terrestrial plane, eradicating those from existence who have either earned punishment or asked for dissolution. This is the story about one assignment that doesn't go as usual.

Were it not for the instruction "fast," I could find it simple to indulge in the man’s allure before eradicating him from the terrestrial plane. His was a body that wouldn’t break easily. I knew that without even having seen it in all its glory.

But time was not a flexible mistress. I lacked it and would lack even more if I didn’t start moving.

The paper went into my pocket, unnecessary for now, but not forgotten.


To check out all the other six sentence contributions, head over to the official website.

Love the "time was not a flexible mistress." Oh no it's not.

Monica Enderle Pierce said...

What an intriguing character. (I'm confused by 'the instruction fast'. Do you need single quotes around 'fast'?)

Vivien Dean said...

Monica, in the original text, that word is italicized to indicate it's a repeat from the instructions he was given, and when I wrote/coded the post, it showed up correctly, but it's not reading the same in the live post. I'm going to go in to try and fix the presentation now.
