Six Sentence Sunday – 12/9/12

header

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

  19. 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

  20. Who says geeks can’t be sexy.

    Reply
  21. 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.

    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.

  25. “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.

  31. 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.

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

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

  34. Beautiful description. :)

  35. 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.

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

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

    Enjoyed the trailer and loved the six!

  41. 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.

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

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

    Fab six!

    Reply
  44. 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. :)

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