Six Sentence Sunday: July 22, 2012 #sixsunday

21 Jul

This week I’m posting another six from my debut novel, The Mirrors at Barnard Hall.  This scene is a continuation of last week’s six 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.}

* * *

Again, he shot me a you’re-not-right-in-the-head look; I fully—albeit silently—agreed.  “Because I haven’t died yet.”

“Maybe you forgot?”  My voice lacked the confidence necessary to convince my ghostly companion of his non-existence.

“Death does not seem the type of incident one would soon forget.  Not that I would know from personal experience, mind you,” he clarified.

* * *

Intrigued?  The Mirrors at Barnard Hall is available on CreateSpace and Amazon (print for ONLY $9.99) and Amazon Kindle, Smashwords and Google Books (for only $2.99)!  Or you can start reading it HERE for FREE!!!!

    Funny. I like how he shoots her a “not-right-in-the-head” look. He’s in the mirror. Teehee! Just like a man! 😉

      Ah, men. [the comments I could make are endless] He is in the mirror… but then again, so is she! 🙂

    This is such an intriguing story — and I love how much of their personalities comes thru with the short snippets you post. I think I’ve got a crush on him already. 🙂

    • movingforeword July 22, 2012 at 8:15 am #

      Me too, Donna! But I’ve had him to “myself” for over three years so I suppose I can share! haha

    Good dialog. Like the story concept too.

  4. Sandra Sookoo July 22, 2012 at 8:20 am #

    What an interesting premise 🙂 Nice job!

    Bwahahaha! I love his droll response. “Death does not seem the type of incident one would soon forget.” LOL love it. Fun six, Jenny. 🙂

      Thank you, Siobhan! I’m glad to hear you enjoyed the snippet.

    Maybe you forgot. That’s cute. They continue to entertain me. Great 6.

  7. Ann Swann July 22, 2012 at 11:53 am #

    Nice…”not right in the head” look. LOL.

  8. Kate Warren July 22, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    I love his response. Have to agree, it would be difficult to forget that.

  9. sueannbowlingauthor July 22, 2012 at 12:35 pm #

    Does he see her in the same mirror, but in his time?

    • movingforeword July 22, 2012 at 2:29 pm #

      I suppose you’ll have to wait to find out… but you certainly are on the right track, Sue Ann!

  10. Monica Enderle Pierce July 22, 2012 at 1:13 pm #

    I love how unamused he is by her, so convinced he’s right, even as she’s so convinced she’s nuts. 🙂

    • movingforeword July 22, 2012 at 2:29 pm #

      It kind of makes you wonder why he doesn’t think he’s going a bit crazy as well 😉

  11. A.S. Fenichel July 22, 2012 at 1:34 pm #

    Very clever! I’m interested to see how this plays out.

  12. Patricia Ann Preston July 22, 2012 at 5:27 pm #

    Very interesting concept with the mirror! And he doesn’t know he’s a ghost. Great job.

  13. Joyce Scarbrough July 23, 2012 at 8:07 am #

    So glad to know he’s not dead! (No offense to anyone in a relationship with a ghost.) 😉 Great six!

    • movingforeword July 23, 2012 at 1:58 pm #

      Thanks, Joyce! If he was it wouldn’t have made for a very good story… or would it?!

  14. Elin Gregory July 24, 2012 at 1:29 am #

    There’s no arguing with that! Can’t wait to see how she persuades him he has died and what his reaction will be.
