Six Sentence Sunday, June 17

Some very good news: I sold BY HOOK OR BY CROOK! Yay-uh! My comic contemporary romance with gangsters will be published by The Wild Rose Press. The contract is signed but I don’t have a release date or any other info. In celebration, here’s a snippet from that book. My h/h, Joe and Ivy, are in a remote cabin, on the run from gangsters, when they hear an ominous noise outside and realize they may not be alone:

Joe disappeared into the bedroom. A minute later, he came out, tucking a handgun into the back waistband of his jeans.
“You have a gun?” Ivy was shocked. “Why did you bring a gun just to help find my sister?”
“It comes in handy in case I need to shoot somebody,” he said, his expression grim.

    Whoo Hoo! Great news on the contract. I really liked this week's six, though I can't help thinking that Ivy should have some sort of physical reaction when she sees the gun, widening eyes, increased pulse rate, rocking back to here heels. Just a thought πŸ™‚
