Sunday Six #11







Today's six is another peak into my newest book, Steamed Up Memories, being released tomorrow. :)











With instincts born of battle, he swept his blade up, ducking and twisting his body to avoid contact. Only, he moved a mere moment too late.
The sun flashed on a steel blade aimed for his heart. Time slowed to a crawl, giving Liam time to wish he told Tristan and Yzzi how much he loved them both. What a stupid fool he’d been. For one more chance, he would shout it across the clouds.

  3. "shout it across the clouds" Pure poetry, and perfect for what he's feeling. And, I love real warriors.

    Congrats on your release tomorrow!

  8. Nice action sequence, though I had a hard time imagining how someone can duck, twist and swing their sword up at the same time... is it a two handed sword? Or one he can swing with one hand? ...I'm not very familiar with sword fights :)

  9. I love how you switched the tempo to slow motion. That really adds to the tension.
