Happy Easter! And Six Sentence Sunday


Happy Easter! And happy Six Sentence Sunday.

I'm happy to say that Whiskey Creek Press finally released The Bridge Between last week! Yay! *tosses confetti and blows noisemaker*

For the next few weeks, I'm going back to a novella I re-released on Amazon recently, my contemporary Going with Gravity. The setting always makes me say ahhh - Hawaii, where I hope to go someday.

The plane Allison and Wes are on has just lost its fuselage (this actually happened, which made me wonder: hmm, who could I put on that plane?) and Wes checks on Allison, who's in the rest room (and try Googling Mile High Club sometime - you'll never use a plane pillow or blanket again! lol):

His gaze steady on hers, he smoothed her hair from her face. She leaned above him, freefalling into the blue of his iris flecked with black and gold felt like diving in a deep cove and floating to the sun-kissed surface.
Going with gravity, she settled onto his chest. With his bottom lip fuller than his top, his mouth gave him a determined look.
“In case you’re wrong…” Her lips met his, and she unleashed years of repressed desire on him.

Check out all the wonderfully talented Six Sentence Sunday participants here.

And because these Peeps dioramas are so inventive and hilarious, I had to add a few more. Click on any image to enlarge it a bit. Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

Wonderful six. (When you mentioned the fuselage, all I could think of was LOST!) Nice interaction between these two.

'freefalling'. I've done that! Ended up marrying the man. :) I'm just worried if they'll finish before something happens to the plane!

Laurie A. Green said...

Happy Easter (love the Egyptian bunny peeps) and Super Congrats! on the release. *throws streamers*

Love this snippet and the heat between them. I want to read more. Also love how you use "diving" and "freefalling" to paint this scene in view of the setting.

(And now I HAVE to go Google Mile High Club, of course.)

I'm a little confused about the set-up, though. Isn't the fuselage the main body of the airliner--where the passengers are?

Cara Bristol said...

Beautiful writing! Love the imagery.

Like the peeps. The Seattle Times every Easter has a peep contest. So much fun.

D L Jackson said...
