On Hiatus

I'm taking a short break from the internet for August, so this blog will be a little quiet for the rest of the month and into the first week of September. In the meantime, there are scheduled posts going up every Wednesday at my cosplay blog - The Intergalactic Seamstress - and at the review blog Critique de Book, plus the odd up to date post at Spacefreighters Lounge on a Tuesday (or you can find my fellow crew mates posting Monday-Friday). See you when September comes!

Six Sentence Sunday #61

Hello! Welcome to another #sixsunday snippet. I'm continuing with my upcoming release Terms & Conditions Apply. Marie has been offered the services of one of the resident avatars, but she doesn't seem all that impressed despite its appearance...

Cover by Danielle Fine

This particular avatar had been crafted into a ruggedly handsome, if stereotypically human, male. Thick blond hair left a shade too long framed his face perfectly; darker brows arched over eyes the most glorious shade of deep blue she’d ever seen. He was broad shouldered and athletic, and the thin, snug-fitting one-piece in gray outlined the well-defined musculature of his torso in a way no doubt intended to draw attention and tease the imagination of potential clients. A shapely hint of what lay beneath without full disclosure, like the metallic foil used to cover chocolate treats. Also a complete contrast to the man she’d hoped to see, and all too perfect to be real.
“I don’t need your service, thank you very much.”

  9. Just a little confusing having you both on SFFSat and Six Sentence Sunday and giving us stuff on SSS we've already had on SFF. You make him sound like a blond Superman in gray.

  12. Hehehe. But I'm guessing that she does need, and will get, his services?
