Six Sentence Sunday!

A little change of pace this week, as I have a release approaching in thirty days. I'm going to go ahead and put Delila in the spotlight for a few weeks. And here we go!


Some background first: Delila is the main character, a vampire living in Tennessee. She's just been ambushed by three werewolves in her home.

As all was quiet, I approached the door and knocked once. Before leaving home I'd changed into a lovely black dress with a sliver of red at the bottom for color, and red heels. I perceived a presence on the other side of the door, a sensation of lust that faded quickly when I dropped my fangs to the invisible observer. "Delila here to see Malachie."

There came a rustle of movement and several loud footsteps, and then the door burst open and the horrific smell of dog infiltrated my nose. I crinkled it against the offensive odor and walked inside.

The show of her dress was perfect. I can so see her crinkling her vamp nose and entering.
