     After a short hiatus from Six Sentence Sunday, I am happy to be back. This go around I am posting six sentences from my ongoing weekly FREE read (a new installment every Wednesday) at Secret Cravings Publishing, entitled My Soul to Keep, an erotic contemporary paranormal (ghost). 
     In this snippet, Val is dealing with the ghost of the man she killed in the field (and subsequently left her for dead for a few moments) and who is now her nemesis of sorts.

     Val kicked the door shut behind her, not even bothering to turn the lights on. These days she wasn't afraid of the dark...she knew what lurked in the shadows.
      Tossing her canvas tote onto the chair, she walked towards the kitchen, lights from the street illuminating the interior of her apartment.
       It wouldn't kill you to turn a light on, the Port Newark ghost commented from the well-worn brown leather couch in the living room.
      Val ignored him. The last time he'd materialized, she noticed his appearance had changed somewhat; the bullet hole between the eyes still visible but not nearly as gruesome.

  6. Thank you ladies! It's good to be back. I love this story and am thrilled to be able to post a weekly installment at SCP! I'll likely post the rest of the scene between Val and Theo over the next few Sundays too!

  7. Good morning. Continued blessings on all of your endeavors.

  8. Wow, in six sentences you had me hooked! I'm going to have to try that six sentence Sunday thing too. Although, unfortunately, that's about all my wip got today:(
