Six Sentence Sunday

Shyin Long, aka Ice, is discussing her newest target over the phone with her wingman Clyps: (Taken from the 0.99 novel Murder Creek available at Amazon and B&N)


“This ‘Serial’ was imported from New England where he killed six girls in six major cities, probably to throw off the locals which, in the Creek, he doesn’t have to worry about as much.”

“What’s the pattern? How do you know it’s the same guy?”

“The streets are the pattern.”

“Uh huh--” This made sense, she was sure of it, she just needed Clyps to get to the Scooby Doo reveal. “Skip to the part that has me snorting icicles.”





Head back to headquarters, where other awesome authors await: http://sixsunday.blogspot.com/
