Six Sentence Sunday


Yay!! My book Driven released on Friday with Decadent Publishing. I am so thrilled to have it out there for people to read. If you're interested, it is available here. Also, the first book in the series, Initiation, is available here.

Okay, in honor of the release I thought I would share 6 more sentences this week from Driven and then next week I would go back to my adult writing.

Here they are:

My name is Rachel Clancy.


Forty-six years ago, life as humanity understood it ended. Armageddon. Well, that’s what we call it, anyway. What other term works as well to describe the day the Vampires and Werewolves slaughtered nearly all of humanity?


For me, all of that happened so long ago I almost never think about it. I’m much more concerned with what just happened and what will be occurring next.

  19. First off, congrats on the release. Second, I have to tell you I'm loving the look of your blog. And that's a great intro. You get us right into her head and we know we're going to have an intimate view of how her life has been, from her eyes with the first person voice you've used. Nice lead in.
