Six Sentence Sunday

Even though it's still early in October, my thoughts have already started turning toward Halloween. So this Six Sentence offering is from my first vampire story, In the Dark, which was just released in print this past week! 

The cool, moist air carried the scents of earth and moss and stone and…something more. Something warm and delicious that flared her nostrils and teased her senses, tempting her to track it down, daring her to track it...

It was a comforting, familiar fragrance, one that was always there, always the same, vivid and welcoming, crucial for her survival. It was the scent of life. The scent of prey. The scent of blood.

I'm running a small contest in conjunction with this release. Click here for details: http://rhymeswithforeplay.blogspot.com/2010/10/in-dark-print-release.html

Love how you were able to make something that should be repellant so engaging. This is really good.

The way you set it up, her thirst for life and twined it with the need for blood was done perfectly. It sure had me pulled in.

The "cool moist air" made me shiver. Is a vamp nearby!?
