Today is #sixsunday where writers share six sentences from their work.
NEWS: MUST LOVE BREECHES finaled in Utah’s Heart of the West contest over the weekend!
Also, I will not be around next Sunday as I’ll be in Atlanta for Dragon*Con. Hopefully. Tropical Storm Isaac is making this iffy (I live in Mobile which is inside the warning cone). If I’m not, it’ll mean it’s hit us and I probably won’t have power, so will miss y’all anyway! I’m going to try and visit everyone in the early a.m., as I need to spend most of today preparing for possible Hurricane Isaac. Keep everyone on the Gulf Coast in your prayers this coming week…
Today’s Six Sunday is from STEAM ME UP, RAWLEY, my steampunk romance set in Mobile, AL. This skips to the next chapter, when everyone, including the new boarder Dr. Rawley, is sitting down to dinner. They’ve been eating and talking away for a bit when this happens (Robert is the heroine’s brother):
A metal clanking noise sounded in the hall, and Walter, their automaton butler pushed through the double doors.
“Breakfast is served,” its tinny but serious voice incorrectly intoned.
Her mother groaned. “Robert, can you please see to Walter? This is getting old.”
Robert stood quickly.
As always I welcome constructive feedback. I’m not sure I have the timing down right to make it clear what the butler did wrong, so any suggestions for improvement is welcome! Thank you!
