Six Sentence Sunday – 11/11/12

Welcome to #SixSunday! I’m sorry I didn’t make it around to y’all last Sunday, I’m going to make a herculean effort to do so today!

Today’s Six Sunday I’m continuing with my upcoming release, BEER AND GROPING IN LAS VEGAS due out December 19. Last week featured the first 6 lines, and today we’re picking up exactly where we left off:

“Er, nice costume,” Mirjam ventured.

“Thanks,” came the muffled reply.

The elevator swooped to a stop on the mezzanine level. A pirate and a Ghostbuster stepped on and pushed the lobby button. Mirjam angled back to avoid being knocked over by the guy’s Proton Pack.

“Convention?” Mirjam asked the caterpillar and it rewarded her with a nod.

About BEER AND GROPING IN LAS VEGAS. Official blurb and cover:

Can a djinn and a magic slot machine bring two geeks together?

Riley McGregor is a geek trapped in a Good Ole Boy body and as owner of a microbrewery, smart chicks never look at him twice.

Rejected by a geek who wanted to “trade up,” Mirjam Linna would rather immerse herself in work than be the girlfriend-of-the-moment. Stranded in a Vegas hotel, she accidentally makes a wish—a night of hot sex with the man of her dreams. It’s granted. She agrees to dinner, but afterward, she’ll say thanks, but no thanks, and see what’s on the SyFy channel. But when they meet, they’re surprised to find they had a shared connection in their past. Sparks fly as these two learn to be in the moment, be themselves and find love.

Fans of Star Trek, Star Wars, Monty Python, Firefly and Marvin the Martian will enjoy this romantic comedy.

    It’s been a while since I’ve read your snippets, but I like this one. I’d be uneasy if I was in an elevator with a pirate and a Ghostbuster; I’d run like hell as soon as the door opened. Nicely crafted six, Angela.

    yep convention – lucky for her. Did you give up on NaNo???

      Nope, about to start pounding the keyboard. Had to take a break to figure out more about the plot and characters as it was going nowhere fast.

    Oh my. . . I have to get this!

  12. S. J. Maylee November 11, 2012 at 2:03 pm #

    I hate getting knocked over by a Proton Pack, lol. Fun 6.

  13. Monica Enderle Pierce November 11, 2012 at 2:48 pm #

    I love the fact that you left the costume reveal (caterpillar) for the end of this exchange. Great picture in my mind. 😀

  14. Carrie-Anne November 11, 2012 at 4:11 pm #

    That sounds like a fun convention!

  15. siobhanmuir November 11, 2012 at 8:27 pm #

    Fun six, Angela. This sounds SO like Vegas. Nicely done. :)

    “Convention?” Mirjam asked the caterpillar and it rewarded her with a nod.

    This is a contender for best throwaway line, EVER.

  17. sueannbowlingauthor November 11, 2012 at 11:27 pm #

    Must be some kind of fantasy convention.

  18. Heather Boyd November 12, 2012 at 3:14 am #

    Were the pirate and the ghostbuster a couple? LOL Funny six!

  19. Carrie Crain November 12, 2012 at 2:43 pm #

    What a fun convention! I can just picture your character stuck in the elevator with that guy and his enormous proton pack, trying to avoid an injury! *giggle*

    Haha, great six! The visual was fun! Interested to see what happens next though.
