Six Sentence Sunday 4/3/11

This is from one of the futuristic paranormal WIPs I intermittently toy with. Working/temporary title is SIREN SONG (envisioned as Book 2 of a series that started with the Doomed Book of My HEART). It's the story of Mia, a nymph; and Pierce, also known as Surfer Dude, Lord of the Deep. 

One minute to midnight.

She had to get out of here.

Mia tucked the tiny purple polyps she’d harvested into a temperature-controlled specimen pouch and glanced at the Air Surround bubble heading toward her, ever larger, ever more ominous. 

She couldn’t make out the regal seal from this distance, but there was no mistaking the swimmer floating within the shimmering orb.

Grasping the blade strapped to the hip of her wet suit, she sliced through the neon pink dive fin wedged between ridges of coral.

She had no choice.

I write just about everything! SLEEPY HOLLOW DREAMS is an erotic urban fantasy paranormal.

This book was envisioned as the second in a series. The first book is the doomed Book of My Heart.

Very cool six. And aren't all "book of my hearts" doomed? Mine is.

Awesome six: it made me curious about (and totally impressed with) the world. Harvesting polyps sounds disgusting! Looking forward to more of this.

Honestly, you had me at "Surfer Dude, Lord of the Deep."

The six great sentences were a bonus.

Kind of like that guy cutting his arm off to get free.
Makes me wonder who the swimmer is. Nice show.
