Six Sentence Sunday–Dec 9

Here’s another six sentences from Blood Vine, which releases Jan 8.  Today we’re in my heroine Zoey’s point of view just before she journeys to Andre’s winery to begin his P.R. project.  

After a shower, Zoey stood before the mirror on her closet door, wrapped in her towel, and looked closely at her face. Thirty-one, and it showed in the laugh lines at the edges of her eyes, from all the laughing she didn’t do, and the tiny creases around her mouth.

She didn’t mind–they were a badge of honor.

I’ve survived. Four years alone, and no more visits to the hospital, to boot.

If those signs of age and an ill-advised affair were the worst she had to show, then she was going to kick thirty-one’s ass.

Come back next week to read six sentences from Zoey’s arrival scene. 

And be sure to check out the other authors participating in Six Sentence Sunday at the website or on twitter at the hashtag #SixSunday.

About amber.belldene

Amber Belldene grew up on the Florida panhandle, swimming with alligators, climbing oak trees and diving for scallops…when she could pull herself away from a book. As a child, she hid her Nancy Drew novels inside the church bulletin and read mysteries during sermons—an irony that is not lost on her when she preaches these days. Amber is an Episcopal Priest and student of religion. She believes stories are the best way to explore human truths. Some people think it is strange for a minister to write romance, but it is perfectly natural to her, because the human desire for love is at the heart of every romance novel and God made people with that desire. She lives with her husband and two children in San Francisco
