Six Sentence Sunday 9-25-11

More from SLEEPY HOLLOW DREAMS, my erotic paranormal from The Wild Rose Press.



     An ominous howl of wild laughter drifted up on the night air from somewhere down the hill, closer to the Hudson River, in the mystical heart of Sleepy Hollow.

     Katy bolted upright in bed, filled with weird urgency—as if something needed her immediate attention—but she couldn’t remember what.

     Of course not. You're still asleep.

     The thought flitted through her semi-conscious mind and vanished like a wisp of smoke.
  
     No dreams tonight.



SLEEPY HOLLOW DREAMS is available now from The Wild Rose PressAmazonBarnes & Noble, Fictionwise & All Romance Ebooks, and other digital book sellers.
