Today is #sixsunday where writers share six sentences from their work. I’ll share 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. 

From the second chapter, Isabelle Rochon is leaving the reenactment ball with Lord Montagu (Phineas) and Ada Lovelace. He’s baffled by her, and she’s still clueless that she’s traveled back in time. This is from his POV, hence the 19th century-sounding voice. (You can see the other entries here.)

Phineas turned back to Miss Rochon and held out his arm. “We will be happy to escort you to your carriage. It is warm for May, so I trust the short distance should not inconvenience you too much.”

Miss Rochon gave every appearance of mounting a protest. However, she shook her head instead and said something under her breath that sounded suspiciously like, “Whatever, dude.”

Have a great Sunday and Happy New Year!

  1. Nice. Can’t wait to see what happens when she can’t find her carriage. :-)

    BTW, thanks for posting about The Men of the Stacks calendar. LOVE the idea and the charity. I went and bought myself a calendar and will be posting about it on Tuesday.

  2. Hey, Angela, thanks for stopping by last week! Sorry to be so late replying, but I’m glad I backtracked to this week because it’s always fun to see two different time periods clash together. Nice six!
