Six Sentence Sunday - Walking The Edge: Snippet #2
Once again it's Sunday! Quite stoked this week coz Sara from Six Sentence Sunday has graciously accepted to list me as a regular SSS contributor on the site's page. :) What can I say though - I'm totally addicted to this little game of posting a quip and sending it out into the world like this.
So, last week I started to post snippets from my upcoming release, Walking The Edge. It releases next Monday, June 27 *gasp* (cannot believe it's getting so close!). It's a romantic suspense/thriller, and you can find the book description here.
Last Sunday I posted the first six from the story. Remember? Amelia, the heroine, thought there was a man stalking her in Selfridges on Oxford Street in London. Take a peek if you want... And here comes the next six (editted for the purpose of this post!).
"....Maybe she tuned in to the hairs rising on her nape, or to the little voice whispering in her mind, telling her there were eyes boring into her back and checking into her every move.
Was she going insane? The question snapped into her brain like a tight-pulled elastic band being released, stinging her when it hit home.
Come on, she told herself, you’re in a busy department store and there’s an idiot tagging your every step.
Her gaze darted to Nathaniel, the hulk of a man who was her assigned chauffeur and man for all tasks, it seemed. Or, he could just be the watchdog her husband had set on her trail...."
Find more amazing SSS quips here! I'm totally hooked on some of these snippets. :)

Great descriptions in this piece. Hmm, is she going insane or is someone really following her? Can't wait to find out!
the hairs on the back of my neck are prickly now too. Very creepy. Great six!
Great setup. Can almost feel her skin crawl!
"...and man for all tasks..."
I totally took that wrong. *grin*
But just because she's paranoid, doesn't mean someone's not out to get her!
A Way To A Dragon's Heart 6ss
Umm excuse me...where is the rest? Don't leave us hanging!! lol
Great snippet. That last line ties it up really well. :)
Thanks Gayle! Glad the descriptions worked. :)
Thank you Misa!
Thanks Alix! I wanted the reader to feel her anxiety. Glad if that came across. :)
Thank you Graylin!
Lol Xakara! Yes, she is getting paranoid out there. :)
Thank you Layna. Lol - the rest will be up for grabs as from next Monday, when the book goes up for sale. *wink* :)
I like that last line too.
Stalkers or not, you made me feel edgy and look around. Great snippet.
Thanks Gem! These were lovely words. :)
The tension increases! Best of luck with the new release!~
Your imagery is GREAT! Congrats on your new release, Zee! So exciting :)
You better not leave us hanging too long. Is she crazy, is she not? Inquiring minds need to know!
Thank you Taryn! I'm getting all excited here!
Very intriguing! Well done!
Thanks Lex! Nah, won't leave you guys hanging for much longer. Things should be clearer next week when the "husband" comes on the stage. :)
Oo, wonderful intrigue. Lots going on this snippet! Makes me want to read on to find out what's really going on.
Amazing metaphor. I can really feel the tension here!
very nice Zee! congrats on being a regular!
You can cut the tension with a knife! Great six :)
Watchdog, huh? That makes me wonder what she's up to that she needs a guard.
Great tension in this six! Well done!
Well done. You've packed a lot into your six. Tight, descriptive, active writing.
I missed SSS last week, so I went back and read your last post. I'm so glad I did. This is a terrific idea for a story. I enjoyed today's post too. Lots of tension.
(thanks for posting on my blog too)
Now that is just plain spooky. Congrats on the upcoming release. Looks like another for my TBR pile
Is the book going to be available for Kindle?
If she's got bad feelings like that, maybe it's best she has the bodyguard. All the best with your release!
Thanks Cate! I really wanted the pace to ramp up here. :)
Thanks Angela! Over the moon to be included in the amazing SSS list. :)
Thanks for the compliment, Luxie!
Hailey - my point exactly! What is really going on around her? :)
Thank you Sarah!
Awesome compliment, Cara! Thank you!
Lol Sandy! Glad you like the story idea. And I loved your snippet too, btw. :)
Aww, thank you Lindsay! That's really nice of you.
Yes, the book should be available on Kindle, because Noble Romance's books are available at third party retailers too. :)
Thanks Jessica. But the real question is - the bodyguard is here to protect her, or to be the watchdog...?
Duh.duh.duhhhhhhh oh no, who is the watchdog? Her chauffeur, or is her chauffeur just the guy to save her? I'm totally intrigued and looking forward to reading the full story xxx Love the cover, and congrats on the upcoming release!!!
Lol, thanks JoAnne! Let's just say no one is really who they seem to be in there... :)
Very suspenseful Six! Love the analogies you weaved in!
Great description! I especially love the 'idiot tagging your every step' line.
Lol, 1000th Monkey (what an intriguing handle, btw!). Glad you liked the quip. :)
