Six Sentence Sunday: July 18, 2012 #sixsunday

14 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.}

“If I may, I would like to point out one issue with your ghost theory,” the mysterious stranger said from the other side of the mirror.

“What is that?” I asked, attempting to conceal my interest. 

“Ghosts are usually dead.”  I nodded but remained silent; what tragedy had befallen this beautiful man?  “And I am very much alive.”

“How can you be so sure?”

    LOL — I love their exchanges, and how they’re trying to persuade each other of their point of view. Wonderful six, as always.

    Great teaser! Can’t imagine everyone not wanting to find out how and why he’s in the mirror. I know I do! 🙂
