Six Sentence Sunday--Edge of Mercy

Yup-yup! I am so excited to announce that Edge of Mercy is available at all major online bookstores. Thanks for all the awesome feedback so far.

I've posted excerpts from Edge of Mercy on my other blog, but here are six more sentences from the story.  If you want to read earlier snippets or the short introductory fiction story I published, you can find them here (from three weeks ago on this blog), here and here.  Otherwise, let's get to the good stuff.  In this scene, the monstrous Draghoul are fighting to get to the people hiding inside:
Were they in the building? With knees raised to my chest, I sunk into myself, lifting my hands to my ears again. Fear pooled in my abdomen, but I couldn’t give in. When I was younger, my mother held me tightly when I was afraid, but my father pushed me to face those same fears. Now I was alone and understood my father’s lessons. Except for Star, I was completely alone.
Read more Six Sentence Sundays here, or sign up to participate next week. Hope you have an enjoyable Sunday.

Happy Writing and Reading,

C. C.

Charlie hides her true identity, but her very presence places everyone around her in danger. With no other choice but to remain where she is, she stays with a community that might not be as benevolent as it appears. In this post-apocalyptic romance where a friend might be an enemy and an enemy might be a friend, seventeen-year-old Charlie protects her baby sister and herself from grotesque monsters outside the community as well as human ones inside. Will the truth she discovers about her protectors save her or ultimately doom her to a fate worse than death?

  1. This is great! I can almost taste her fear--a huge compliment considering you only had six sentences to convey her feelings.

  2. Thanks, Jenny. I really enjoyed writing this one.
