Six Sentence Sunday: July 8, 2012 #sixsunday

7 Jul

In honor of the official release of my debut novel, The Mirrors at Barnard Hall, my six this week is from that very book.  This scene is a continuation of last week’s post  from the first time Callista Franklyn sees a handsome stranger inside of her antique mirror. 

{Synopsis: Callista Franklyn’s return to her family’s mansion in the English countryside stirs up more than memories of ghostly childhood friends when she discovers the very real, and very handsome, Nick Dalton in the reflection of her antique mirror.

The problem? Beyond the fact that he appears to reside in a mirror, historical records say Nick died in 1902.

Callista is intrigued by Nick’s claim that the year is 1902, so she investigates and uncovers a timeline of suspicious crimes and enchanted mirrors that connect her to the twentieth century. She also realizes that she’s falling for Nick, who is condemned to be murdered in August.

As the date of Nick’s impending death approaches, Callista must decide if she’s willing to risk changing history and erasing her place in the modern world in order to prevent the tragic crime and save the man she loves.}

“I am not a ghost,” the stranger inside of my mirror declared, scoffing at my theory.

“I think you’re wrong,” I said with more conviction than I felt. 

“Don’t you think that, of the two of us, I would know if I were a ghost?”

“Maybe…” I said, still unconvinced. 

He crossed his arms and grew serious, assessing me as a psychiatrist would his patient.  “And have you met many ghosts—not including myself of course?”

    This conversation is so entertaining – I love the banter! And a HUGE congrats to you on your release!

    Congratulations! Have fun with it and I hope it sells like hot cakes!

    Very nice six. And very shrewd – how WOULD you convince the man in the mirror that he was the ghost, when he can quite clearly see that it’s you who is the phantom?

      Thank you, Elin! It takes a while to convince him, indeed 🙂

    Their banter is fun. I’m so curious about these two.

      They’re intriguing, indeed! Thanks for stopping by, S.J.!

    This is a fun exchange. LOL I wonder who will be the most convincing. 😉

      I guess you’ll have to wait until next week to find out!!

    Looks to me like the possibility of a time paradox is secondary to her convincing him.

    I really liked the blurb for this tale, Jenny. Nicely written six, too. 🙂

    Jenny, I am Liz Marchetti’s cousin-read your book and loved it!! Can totally seeing it becoming a hit and would love to see it made into film!

    • movingforeword July 11, 2012 at 9:10 am #

      Oh goodness, Thanks so much, Kate! To see it made into a movie would be unreal. Word-of-Mouth is the best marketing tool; I’d be eternally grateful if you’d tell your friends! 🙂
