Six Sentence Sunday – 11/20/11

I thought I’d start participating in #sixsentencesunday (#sixsunday) with a snippet from my time-travel romance WIP. I currently have this out to Beta readers for feedback and hope to be in a position to query for agents in the new year. Here’s my working query hook for it: Isabelle Rochon has met the man of her dreams. There’s only one problem: he lives in a different century. Talk about a long-distance relationship!

He suspected that the device did much more than what she had revealed, and she held back for his sake. A chasm opened in his mind’s eye, Isabelle occupying the other side and retreating. How could he hope to bridge the gap?

Miss Byron interjected to relate other wonders it performed, confirming his suspicion. “And that is not all. She captured a likeness of me at the ball, and I saw myself in there, in my dress…”

Have a great Sunday!

    Hurrah for time-travel stories! I’m guessing the device is a camera? Fab snippet and welcome!

    Sounds like she’s been taking pictures! LOL If I had to go back in time, I’d miss my droid. But alas, I’d have no way to charge it…

      Yep, with her phone, but by this time in the story it’s dead…

    Hos’s she managing with corsets?

    • angela quarles November 20, 2011 at 5:31 pm #

      OK… She insisted on not having them made too tight for her… The thing that freaks her out the most is no panties!

    I always like the idea of people parsing technologies they aren’t otherwise familiar with.
