Six Sentence Sunday 41

This is the second week of my Six Sunday retrospective. This week my six comes from the second book of the Tales of the Darkworld, Hot Water. The hero, Colin Granville, a vampire, is on the phone with his irreverent assistant Corey Green. Colin’s asked Corey to cancel all his appointments because he’s met a woman.

“What is it with you Granvilles lately? First your sister goes all googly eyed for a dragon and now you.”

Colin got in a waiting cab and gave the driver the name of his hotel. “I’m not googly eyed, Corey. I’m just horny.”

“You say to-may-toe and I say to-mah-toe.”

This week I received a lovely package from my publisher Mary. In the package were author copies of Tales of the Darkworld Volume Two. As a thank you to all the commenters who come here every week, I’ve decided that one of you shall win a copy of this beautiful book! Leave your comments and let me know what you think of Colin and Corey’s amusing exchange. In return, I’ll enter you in a drawing for a chance to win a print copy of Tales-Two which includes Sunstroked, Corey’s story.

    Oh, how I love seeing a man be brought to his knees in the most wonderful way. The characters seem to flow with the dialogue and with just the 6 you create intrigue in the reader to want to know more. I love it, Lex. Keep up the wonderful work.
    Take care.
