Six Sentence Sunday 12: Hunger Embraced

So, I’m going to return to the land of vampires this weekend. I’m vacillating with myself, trying to decide if I want to give this manuscript a major overhaul. Like, going in and rewriting it in third person, moving chapters…..whole bunch of nonsense. Anyway, I decided to give you guys a bit of it here before I make up my mind. Not sure what I want to do right now.

Miri (Miranda, our heroine) is scrolling through her phone looking for a particular number when she stumbles across a surprise. :) Ahh, alpha males, don’t you love them?

Daniel had added himself into my phone. So not only had he overstayed his welcome, eaten my candy, and interfered in my job, he’d been in my contacts, probably snooping around. Who does that kind of crap?  I almost smiled at the last name he’d put in for himself but stopped with a scowl.  Just because it said Daniel T.T.B. did not mean he was forgiven or cute. Or funny.

And tomorrow I’ve got a great big pretty for you guys. I’m revealing the cover art for my upcoming release with Decadent Publishing Love Kinection. *Squee!* Stop in and let me know what you think. :D

    Hehe, I can’t wait to see how Daniel does convince her to forgive him…

    Yay for cover art!!!!!

      Yep! Yay! I love it. :) Oh, Daniel, he’s so delicious. I really like him. He tends to be hard for me to read though. He’s kinda secretive.

    I like this — and I like the first POV. I’m chuckling about the outrage over him eating her candy. LOL

      Heehee. Yeah he sorta helped himself. He makes up for it. :D I’m going to keep it in first, I’ve decided. (And he does buy her more jelly beans. Oh, and he makes her a killer grilled cheese sandwich as well.)

    Oh man I just got all caught up in your 6! Daniel sounds like fun.
    I have a MS that I’m making the same decisions on- scenes will be shifting, not sure yet on the POV
    Good luck with your decision making and pre-congrats on the new cover, exciting stuff!!

      Thanks S.J. yeah, I printed out my synopsis and I’m going to cut it into pieces so I can move my story arc around and look at it on the kitchen table. LOL A little trick one of my professors taught me ( and seeing as he’s a kick ass poet and writer, I tend to listen to him.)

      I think I’m going to keep it in first. Especially since I heard the heroine’s voice in my head today going “What the f*ck is up with you? Would you quit dicking around writing porn and take care of business around here? Do you know what I’m trying to deal with?”

      yeah, she can be pushy. Although, she has a point. There’s a demon’s body in the living room, her best friends are unconscious, and she’s sorta dealing with being cursed by a pissed off goddess for not completing a task. Who am I to whine about being behind on my homework when that kind of shit is going down? LOL

    TTB – The Terrible Beast? LOL! I need to know! I love how he added his contact into her phone, very bold.

    I’ll be back tomorrow for the big cover reveal!

      Hey girl! Well, it means Tall, Tanned, and Blonde. :D Miri tends to give people nicknames. Helps her compartmentalize crap she’s not comfortable with.

      And I look forward to “seeing” you here tomorrow. My cover isn’t as sexy as yours, but I’m still in total love with it.

    That’s just like an alpha–total disregard of boundaries, thinks they always know best. I don’t know the particular reason why you’re overhauling but this snippet was good. Good luck with the overhaul and congrats on your cover!

      Thanks! Why overhaul? Well, since I finished this novel, I’ve written well over 100K new words and have had the opportunity to work with a professional editor. So, loads of learning experience between now and then. I want to give people the best story possible. There are some problems in the MS that an I now know an editor will pick up on right away that I can fix, and I’m concerned that I’m not starting the story in the right place.

      I think it’s a good book. But I want it to be great. :)

      Plus the longer that I let a story sit, the more things I want to do to improve it cause I’m just slightly obsessive over my stuff. LOL

    Hey Chickie. Well done. I love this. Terrific characters. Can’t wait to meet Daniel.

      Thanks! Oh, you’ll like him. :) He’ll probably frustrate the crap outta you, but you’ll love him anyway. I never know what he’s going to say or do. I actually have a better handle on some of the secondary characters than TTB. He’s always a surprise.

    Daniel sounds interesting! I like this summing up of him.

    • Jennifer James
      891 days ago

      He’s interesting. And sexy as hell. Tender, a great cook, and deadly with a sword. :) Although, we don’t get to see him with a sword until book 2.

    It seemed funny to me.

  9. Lorraine Paton

    Oh, I like him already! ;) She sounds like she can handle him.

    • Jennifer James
      890 days ago

      Heeheee…..oh she can. And she goes out of her way to make him nuts too. They’re both rather stubborn.

    I love your voice in this excerpt!

    I understand being hesitant about tackling a major revision. I’ve been procrastinating about that myself. Gotta do it, though. It’s just part of writing, even though it isn’t the fun part.

    • Jennifer James

      Oh the joys of revision. They just seem to be never ending…. :) Thanks for stopping by Sandy. I hope to see you around again. :)
