Six Sentence Sunday 4/23


This week I’m offering something a little different. You see, I received my galley of After Midnight and it's been sent to production. That means I'll have a release date soon!

Believe it or not, I'm more excited about this one than my first release. It's a story that is near and dear to me. The story of Isabeau, owner of Izzy’s Bar, child prodigy, piano phenom—a woman who is hiding behind a lie of her own making.


She fought the flash of understanding, of connection she felt with him. She couldn’t soften. She couldn’t change the past, and she refused to relive it. Not even for a man who would understand her on a level no one before him ever had. “The girl you’re looking for no longer exists.”

“What girl am I looking for?”


As always, thank you for stopping by my blog each week and leaving such wonderful comments. I appreciate each and every one! Don't forget to visit the Official Six Sentence Sunday site for a list of all the participating authors.
