Six Sentence Sunday: The Call of the Sea #sixsunday

In honor of my recent contract signing with Inkspell Publishing, this week’s six sentence sample comes from my debut novel, a Paranormal Romance titled, The Call of the Sea. (Man, I just love saying that.)

Your comments are always welcome.

Surely, Jashir would come for her soon. She [Ellie] wrung her hands and stared a hole in the closed portal.

A deafening explosion rocked the hull, throwing Ellie backwards and scattering her thoughts to the wind. She landed on her rump with a thud. Pain shot through her ankle where the chain anchored her.

What the devil was that?

Be sure to click on the banner at the top of the post and stop in to visit with the other participants this week.

Happy Sunday!
