SSS: Lily celebrates her 21st birthday

Hey Sixers! I missed you guys. Had to take a few weeks off to catch up on edits for Dead to Rights (just released Friday, woot!) and Death Is A Bitch, coming soon from Decadent. It's a crazy busy spring!


More good news - Dancing With the Devil's available! Book 2 of The Goddess Connection, it follows Lily on her journey to The Underworld, where she meets many an interesting character. Here, she receives an invitation on her 21st birthday:



The longer she held it, the more reluctant she grew to let go of it, and tossing it in the trash became unthinkable.
The faintest whisper issued, and she could swear it came from the envelope: Lily.
“Oh, this is ridiculous.” She delved her nail behind the gold seal and it popped open, a four-fold self-sealing letter. Flakes of gold leaf fell. Who used such expensive invitations these days?

Check out all the fantastic authors at Six Sentence Sunday. Have a great week!

I think it's called conspicuous consumption.
By the way, I'm here--think they removed my link because I miscounted.
