Happy 1st birthday, Six Sentence Sunday!


Although I'm a latecomer to Six Sentence Sunday, it's still exciting to help celebrate its first anniversary. It's been a lot of fun to participate, as well as read the other participating authors' entries. I appreciate all your comments. They give me a real boost!

As part of the birthday celebration, I'll give away one autographed print copy of my contemporary, Picture This. The novella's garnered some wonderful reviews, and is a 2011 EPIC finalist too. To be in the running, just leave a comment on this post. I'll announce the winner tomorrow.

Here are six from Picture This:

He bit his lip. “I need to explain. About that night.”
Her heart fell. The night he kissed her – he had to mean that night. The night they had one amazing kiss, then everything fell apart between them.
