Welcome to Six-Sentence Sunday!
This week I’m hitting you with something new. SOMETHING BLACK… to be specific.
My next release is a stand-alone horror novel set right in Washington, just south of Seattle, when a commuter train accident is just the precursor to a series of nightmarish events that has a small group of survivors fighting for their lives.
This excerpt is from the opening of the book: a strange dream sequence in which the main character, an ex-soldier named Rafe, glimpses into the shadows of a forest on a distant world that spews forth nightmares intent on devouring humankind…
It is a graveyard of dead black trees smoking with shadow. It stands like a crude scar on a landscape littered with pools of oil and grey frost. Ice clouds float low in the sky, and creeping mist rolls over fields of shale and broken coal.
A woman stands in the briars, and her bare feet are bloody and raw. She is beautiful and pale, with alabaster skin and hair that flows in waves. She stands in the prison of sleeping trees; the branches claw at her like violent, jealous lovers.
