Six Sentence Sunday – Is My Sister an Alien or What?

Oh my, is that the time?

Anyone mind telling me how summer managed to slip through my fingers? This is it. The last weekend before we jump back into the school routine. This is a exciting year for us because my second oldest is starting kindergarten. He can’t wait. Me, well, it’s tough letting go and having all that time to myself during the day. Oh, wait … what’s that? Time to myself? Hmmm…

Anyway, it’s Six Sentence Sunday and you know what that means, right? Yep, it’s time to cut a smidgen from my soon-to-be-released novel Ghosts Don’t Wear Silk Stockings and stick up here on the blog for your reading enjoyment. Six sentences not enough for you? If you haven’t already read Chapter One in its entirety then be sure to click HERE and check it out. Best of all, if you want the chance to win an autographed copy of the paperback then hop over HERE to Goodreads and enter the giveaway where I have five copies up for grabs. There will be opportunities to win digital copies soon too so make sure you follow the blog or connect with me on Facebook and/or Twitter so you don’t miss the announcements.

Last, but certainly not least, don’t forget to check out the other wonderful authors participating in Six Sentence Sunday. You can find a list of blogs HERE.

Right … on to the meaty stuff… I struggled to find the six that I would share this week but finally settled on this. Greer’s gone missing and Brianna knows she needs to put space between herself and Dan. She takes a gamble and shows up unexpected at her older sister’s house. Last time she saw Kate, they hadn’t parted on friendly terms so she isn’t expecting a warm reception.

***

“I don’t want to impose, really,” Brianna said putting a little more distance between herself and Kate. There was something about Kate that she just couldn’t quite put her finger on but it was very different. She was entirely too happy. Perhaps aliens had landed during the night and kidnapped the sister she knew and replaced her with this all too perky alien replica? She tried to get a glimpse of nearby crop circles as Kate hauled her through the front door, calling out for Ken to set an extra place at the table.

“He’ll be thrilled to see you,” Kate said turning back to Brianna.

Thanks for reading! 🙂

    I love the tart humor in this and could so easily picture her bewilderment. Hmmm,now why has Kate changed? And Greer has ‘gone missing.’

    So many things I’ll be waiting to discover when the book releases. Loved this!

    Maybe Kate is just happy? Fair to imagine alien abduction though. This is a sister we’re talking about.

    Yes the summer has flown by this year, hasn’t it? My youngest is starting pre-K. It’s an odd mix of feelings. Sad that her babyhood is unquestionably over, glad to have a bit more quiet in the house from September-June.

      LOL I don’t have a sister myself but if I did, I would probably wonder the same thing from time to time.

      I know what you mean. My youngest is still in preschool but I got a little teary seeing the school bus this morning and taking the middle guy to kindergarten orientation. I wish they didn’t grow up so fast.
