Death's counterpart in the underworld

Yay, it's Six Sentence Sunday again! I love reading the fantastic snippets, and hope you enjoy mine as well. Thanks so much for visiting, and especially for your comments!

Here's another peek at Death Is A Bitch, my dark paranormal with humorous elements, now out on submission (which can also be a bitch, lol). Though Death has no allegiance with either Heaven or Hades, sometimes her counterpart from the Underworld can prove a little unpredictable. And hot, huh? Here Death muses about how Damien projected an angelic appearance:


Fortunately, Death knew better. Sure, the daemon looked like a GQ model now, but piss him off and see what he morphed into. A fanged gargoyle. A two-story python, coiled to strike. A walking mass of rotted, stinking flesh. Whereas she didn’t go in for special effects, Damien loved them.

Thanks again for popping by! Check out the amazing snippets by other SSS authors. Have a great week!

And when does this come out? You definitely intrigued me with your six. Something about a dangerous man - just does it every time!

Great six - very descriptive.

"Special effects!" Love that the daemon has a theatrical flair. But boy, those glamours sound pretty nasty. Don't want to tick him off. Love your six!

Again, I am fascinated by your story :) I was a little thrown by the term 'two-story python' though... I had to read that line a couple times... I think you mean, two-story-tall python, right? I guess I'm just not clear 'cause when a snake is standing up, most of its body is still on the ground, so I'm not exactly where how much of it you're measuring... using 'tall' or 'long' would make the description a little more clear :)

Awseome six!

Putting on a different face for each situation... writ large. Very large.
