Six Sentence Sunday - Last Dance

And in the end...the love you take...
is equal to the love...you make.
~ Lennon & McCartney
  
Well, this is it, kids. The end. The very last official Six Sentence Sunday.

My first Six Sunday post was in September of 2010, about a month before my first book, SLEEPY HOLLOW DREAMS, was published by The Wild Rose Press.

There were eight comments that day:  Dee Carney and Lisa Fox were the only Six Sundayers who left comments; everyone else was from my local RWA chapter and had no idea what Six Sentence Sunday was. I didn't have much of an idea myself. I don't think there were more than 20 or so participants back then. In these last months, there have been close to 200 some weeks.
 
My latest book, FROST, also set in Sleepy Hollow, will be released by Decadent Publishing later this week. And I just received a contract last night for BLIZZARD, an erotic short, also from Decadent.
 
So it's been a fun ride. Six Sentence Sunday has been an absolute gas for me. Thank you, Sara Brookes, for the concept, the site, and all your hard work over the years.
 
And thanks to all of you who have stopped by here on Sundays over the years, leaving your wonderful and wonderfully encouraging comments. I live for those! And I appreciate you all more than you will ever know.

I will probably continue to post snippets on Sundays from time to time.

But I leave you -- and Six Sentence Sunday -- with six from FROST.

"But I play with fire, little girl." He stroked her arm again and the sensual burn sizzled across her skin.

She sighed in delight.
Hallefreakinglujah.

His upper lip twitched into a crooked smile, and her heart performed a grand jeté worthy of a prima ballerina.

"Heard you liked bad boys," he said.


  
Until we meet again, my Six Sentence Sunday lovelies!

I've been on here for about 3 years, have published a short story and after NaNo am contemplating publishing a novel. You said something to me years ago after I begged for feedback which I have kept because it was truly words of wisdom. Thank you
