Six Sentence Sunday May 6 & Giveaway!


"The Yard Sale" features a Prince Charming so, maybe, it is a little bit of a Cinderella story. It features a desperate heroine and a handsome honorable guy, who saves her. More or less.

This is a short snippet from "The Yard Sale" featuring the main character, Jennifer, and the arrival of Gabriel, aka Prince Charming.

As I entered the garage, the drum case in my arms, I noticed a man walking down my driveway. Now, there had been a lot of men come to the sale but there was something different about this one. For one thing, he was the best-looking guy who had shown up. He was tall, dark-haired, and carried himself well. Dressed in black slacks and a striped dress shirt, he was the kind of guy you’d expect to meet at the country club or in court.

What was he doing at a yard sale? 




"The Yard Sale" is a cute short story, a best seller in comedy. Check it out on Amazon: Here

Plus, to read snippets from other writers, go to www.sixsunday.com

Also, I'm doing a little giveaway to celebrate the story's success. If you would like to win the movie DVD, Ever After, which is my favorite version of the Cinderella story, please leave a comment. All names will be put in a hat and a winner drawn on Tuesday.
