Over the past few weeks, I’ve alternated between Want (which you can now pre-order! Holy crap!) my novel that comes out June 7, and “Aftertaste,” a free short story that dovetails with a scene in the book. It’s told from a different character’s point of view.
Well, guess what? “Aftertaste” comes out this
Wednesday March 14 Friday March 16! Like I said, it’s free and it will be available through Inkspell. (Incidentally, Inkspell will be offering free short stories from a number of my sister authors this whole week.)
SO. This week is the last time I’ll post six sentences from “Aftertaste.”
At some point, I have to go downstairs. It wouldn’t be so bad on a regular day. She doesn’t always cling to me like the dust on the baseboards. Really, I have more pressing issues to deal with, it’s just the mornings after the dream that leave me listing. I don’t need Freud to explain it to me, and I certainly can’t talk to anyone about it.
Which is why the dream is so bothersome.
As always, thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out some of the other 150+ Six Sentence Sunday participants.

Hmm, will have to get the free read just to see what this is all about. Cryptic and intriguing.
Now we’re talkin’! 😀
Love the mention of Freud in this. Perfect addition to raise the eyebrows an extra inch or two! LOL. Congrats on the exciting happenings!
