Six Sentence Sunday: Things that go bump in the night #sixsunday

I’m completely amazed by how much has changed for me in the short time since I announced my debut novel, Call of the Sea would be published. So much so, I wasn’t able to get any new writing done on the short story I posted a snipit of last week. So this week, I am flopping back to a scene from Call of the Sea, set to debut from Inkspell Publishing on June 21, 2012.

Without further ado…

A shuffle in the darkness drew him[Daniel] upright. “Who’s there?” The hairs on the back of his neck stood on end as he squinted into the pitch. The faint beam of moonlight streaming in the tiny window by the table did little to aid his cause. Daniel stared into the dark as he fumbled to light the lamp.

With only one way in or out, whatever lurked in the shadows would have to go through him to escape.

Thanks for stopping in. As always, your thoughts and comments are welcome.

Take care 🙂
