I'm posting my Six Sentence Sunday posting a little early I know. My son's is having a sleep over tonight. There is no way I'm going to be able to sit at the computer for more than a second to get anything posted with eight children varying from ages 4 to 9 running around. Don't forget to enter for a chance to win a free Ebook copy of The Demon Side, below.

Today I decided to share six sentences from one of my works in progress, Mesa Rising, a twisted tale about the underground Zombie world. Bwuahahahah! It is a work in progress so punctuation is lacking. I don't fix any of that until my revision stage. So no judging. LOL

Quick recap: one of our main character Andre, a construction worker, goes to the Mountain View Funeral home to confront Millicent for standing him up. What he finds when he enters, will forever change the simple world he knows.

“What are you doing here? You have to go now!” Meredith shouted as she tried desperately to shove Andre out of the front door. She knew in less than a minute, the steel shutters would drop down locking everyone and everything inside the Mountain View Funeral Home.



“What the hell is that?” Andre exclaimed shoving past her toward the kitchen. Strapped on the table was Ruben, a local thug, drug dealer, and rapist, struggling and moaning for help. Andre reached for the leather strap around Ruben’s right wrist, when the slamming of metal ripped through the whole house.



“Andre, I’m sorry. I tried. They’ll be coming down here soon. There is nothing I can do to help you now except to tell you to hide and pray you survive the night.”

Well I hope you enjoyed my Six Sentences (I know it was a little more than that) and be sure to check out our list of awesome Coffin Hoppers at http://coffinhop.blogspot.com/!
