Six Sentence Sunday – 18/12/11

Susie White and the Right Hand ManHere are six sentences from my newly released fairy tale retelling Susie White and the Right Hand Man, from House of Erotica.

We’d never seen eye to eye, my stepmother and I. However, it wasn’t the usual ‘child resents someone trying to replace their parent’ syndrome, it was her that resented me.

My mom had died of cancer when I was fifteen. My father and I were devastated, as you’d expect, but I’d always urged him to get on with his life. After all, it’s what mom would have wanted, and I certainly didn’t want my dad to be lonely when I got married and left home.

So, a couple of years later, when dad met Louise and they started dating, I was thrilled.

    Liked your six a lot. So much of this petty resentful in remarriages. I could write a book…but not about stepmothers…about ex-wives. *lol* Happy holidays. Oh, and I admired the cover too. (wiping saliva from the corner of mouth.)

    What a HOTTIE on the cover–what’s he usin’ his right hand for I wonder, hmmm? LOL! But seriously, love the tugging of the heartstrings here. The mom dying of cancer, the daughter and father devastated by the loss. I’m already hooked. And don’t you just know the stepmother is a viper? Great six! Happy Holidays to you, Lucy!

    That last line feels like there is a “but” coming. Great six! 🙂

    Interesting backstory. Sounds like she’s not so thrilled her father re-married now!

    Yes, an interesting start. So what was Louise’s problem? Thanks for posting.

    I missed the list deadline for this week, but I did get six sentences up!
