Six Sentence Sunday – 12/9/12


Welcome to #SixSunday!

Today’s Six Sunday I’m continuing with my upcoming release, BEER AND GROPING IN LAS VEGAS due out December 19. As we’re getting closer to the due date, things are starting to happen! You can now add it to your Goodreads shelf, and I’ve also created a page for it on my website which will have updated buy links as they become available.

This is in her POV and she’s describing the fit of Riley’s khakis:

Not too tight, not too loose, but just right. Just call her Goldilocks of the Khaki Admirers. After all, a girl enjoyed a glimpse of firm butt. Speaking of which, she’d need to peek later.

But what attracted her most were his warm, intelligent, bourbon-brown eyes. She’d had a hard time looking into them during dinner, like she’d overexpose or singe herself, or worse, like they’d penetrate to the stark loneliness she buried so deep within.

And last weekend, I had fun creating a trailer for BEER AND GROPING IN LAS VEGAS!

I’m also kicking off a blog tour on December 17 and if any of you have slots available on your blog for hosting me, I’d love to be a guest :) Just shoot me an email at angela [at] angelaquarles [dot] com

    LOL — love the Goldilocks line. And I love the way she exposes her vulnerability at the end. Nice six! Oh, and I loved the trailer — that was a lot of fun.

    Yeah, butts are nice, but it’s the eyes that’ll get you every time.

  5. Kate Warren December 9, 2012 at 9:53 am #

    That’s beautiful! Note to self: look up pictures of bourbon to see what color it is. Need a visual.

    • Angela Quarles December 9, 2012 at 10:08 am #

      Wow, you are obviously not from the South, LOL! It’s like a religion down here :)

  6. ellaquinnauthor December 9, 2012 at 9:54 am #

    I agree, the descriptions and emotions are very well done.

    Great visual.

  8. veronicascott December 9, 2012 at 10:20 am #

    I’m glad she appreciates his physique but loses herself in his eyes! Excellent excerpt…

  9. Author Charmaine Gordon December 9, 2012 at 10:25 am #

    Terrific fun description. Thanks. I love a firm butt as well as eyes the window of the soul.

  10. Kate Meader December 9, 2012 at 10:30 am #

    Just right butt, bourbon-brown eyes. Ah, lovely. Very nice six, Angela! Can’t wait for your release.

  11. A.S. Fenichel December 9, 2012 at 10:38 am #

    Great six, Angela. I love “bourbon brown eyes” and I really feel for her loneliness already. Excited for your release!

  18. S. J. Maylee December 9, 2012 at 11:57 am #

    The descriptions are fabulous and that last line, I love it! Fab 6.

  19. Taryn Kincaid December 9, 2012 at 12:10 pm #

    Bourbon brown eyes. Nice.

  20. Sue December 9, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    Loved the last line – excellent. By the way it might be just me but I looked at the trailer the other day and while it’s great it scrolled too quickly for my eyes to catch it all – otherwise excellent

  21. sueannbowlingauthor December 9, 2012 at 12:45 pm #

    Who says geeks can’t be sexy.

  22. Carrie-Anne December 9, 2012 at 12:52 pm #

    I love a man with brown eyes. I like how you describe them as bourbon-colored. I usually describe brown eyes and hair as chocolate-colored.

  23. Jenna Jaxon December 9, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

    Gotta admire a woman with an eye for a good butt. :) Not that eyes aren’t appealing, but…LOL Nice six.

  24. Stephanie Sullivan December 9, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

    Great six, Angela! And I LOVE the title of your book too! :)

  25. Cheryl December 9, 2012 at 1:12 pm #

    A girl definitely enjoys they way that butt looks. :) And “bourbon-brown eyes” is such a unique and awesome description. Awesome six sentences! Can’t wait to read the book.

  26. Elin Gregory December 9, 2012 at 1:43 pm #

    “ike she’d overexpose or singe herself, or worse, like they’d penetrate to the stark loneliness she buried so deep within.”

    That’s excellent.

  27. susanroebuck December 9, 2012 at 1:46 pm #

    That’s warm and sexy – I too love that last sentence. Well done

  28. Joanne Stewart December 9, 2012 at 2:10 pm #

    “like they’d penetrate to the stark loneliness she buried so deep within.” Terrific line. Sexy, emotional six. Very well done.

  29. Paula Martin December 9, 2012 at 2:30 pm #

    I’m already in love with his eyes!

  30. Vivien Dean December 9, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    Sounds yummy! Well done. :)

  31. Cara Bristol December 9, 2012 at 4:01 pm #

    She’s got it bad! BTW, liked your trailer. Cute!

  32. Karysa Faire December 9, 2012 at 4:15 pm #

    Angela, Angela. Sigh. That last line almost made me weep. I know it’s supposed to be sexy and all (and it is!), but it’s also very touching. I felt her vulnerability.

  33. Brooklyn Wilde December 9, 2012 at 4:30 pm #

    Khaki Admirers indeed! Nice six. LOVE the title, too.

  34. evelynjules December 9, 2012 at 4:34 pm #

    Your description is FAB! Particularly love the colour of his eyes. Mmm, bourbon-brown. I’m really excited for this book! :)

  35. Heather Boyd December 9, 2012 at 4:35 pm #

    Beautiful description. :)

  36. J.M. Blackman December 9, 2012 at 4:41 pm #

    This six took a turn. First we were grinning with her–yes, just right. But then for it to lead to her realization that she didn’t want him to see her loneliness…so real. Great six.

  37. Kylie Scott December 9, 2012 at 4:51 pm #

    Groovy trailer! Not long now till release day. Congratulations, Angela! So excited for you.

  38. Frank Fisher December 9, 2012 at 5:09 pm #

    Great imagery! I especially love the bourbon-brown eyes bit. Fun six!

  39. Tonya Burrows December 9, 2012 at 5:12 pm #

    Hah! I LOVE this line–> Just call her Goldilocks of the Khaki Admirers.

  40. Lorraine Paton December 9, 2012 at 5:27 pm #

    Great six, Angela, as always! And, I love your trailer too! (It made me laugh)

  41. Gem December 9, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    Enjoyed the trailer and loved the six!

  42. J.M. Blackman December 9, 2012 at 6:41 pm #

    This six took a twist. At first we’re grinning with her over the just right fit, but then we’re relating to that loneliness that at one point or another, most of us have had a hid. Evocative in different ways.

  43. Lila Shaw December 9, 2012 at 8:06 pm #

    A nice firm butt is quite important as Goldilocks well knows! Good luck with the release.

  44. Sandra Bunino (@SandraBunino) December 9, 2012 at 8:35 pm #

    I love your cover!! Congrats on the release…just a few more days!

    Fab six!

  45. Stephanie/Elise December 9, 2012 at 8:49 pm #

    For some reason, I don’t remember the eye thing from the first time I read it. Is it new? Because I can totally relate — sometimes it’s nearly painful to look at someone. What a great detail to include. :)

  46. siobhanmuir December 10, 2012 at 9:10 pm #

    Wow, I really liked the line about the eyes, how they’d expose the loneliness. Nicely written six, Angela. :)

  47. sarahballance December 15, 2012 at 5:30 pm #

    Wow. Now THOSE are some amazing eyes! Awesome writing!
