Six Sentence Sunday – Blood Bound

Yea . . . Six Sentence Sunday! How about 6 sentences from my WIP, Blood Bound – book 2 in the House Millar series?

I knew exactly what he’d just gone through, though I didn’t know how deep the connection was – did he watch or did he feel too? “What he just witnessed and to an extent felt was . . .” I couldn’t find the words to explain such sick, vile, wickedness.

Simon collapsed in my lap, his head on my knee. He managed to articulate one thought before losing himself to the sobs breaking through his control. “The mutilation of your soul.”

For those new to this, the rules are simple:

  1. Pick a project – a current Work in Progress, contracted work or even something readers can buy if you’re published
  2. Pick six sentences
  3. Post ‘em on Sunday

See? Easy. Want to play? See the site for information on how to do just that: http://sixsunday.com

About the author

Mistress Anya

Áine P Massie is originally from Florida, she now lives in Wisconsin where she works on her House Millar series full time while raising four children (the term herding cats comes to mind). Her major in College was Childhood Education (specializing in ages 0-5) with a minor study in Deaf Culture/ASL. She is also a Wiccan priestess dedicated to the gods, family, and love.

Áine is a proud member of the Rom-Critters and a life-long reader. Áine has always had a particular fascination with vampires, mythology, and the unusual. When she can escape from her children and books, she enjoys . . . oh yes, reading, playing, ritual, a good cappuccino, and working with her healing stones.

Her first published work came in high school where she was part of a writing and drama group. But, she’s been reading the likes of Shakespeare and Poe since late elementary school and enjoys most forms of fiction.
