Six Sentence Sunday... Room with a View.

Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday. A quick thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of Flesh, writing reviews and mentioning it on Twitter. This week in a brain boggling move it jumped 20,000 places on Amazon to sit in the Top #30 of Erotica Best Sellers! Possibly the most exciting day of my life outside of getting married and giving birth and stuff. If you haven't read it yet but might like to give it a go it's still only .99c on Kindle.

Today we’re moving on from Flesh to a short-story set in the same Post-Zombie-Apocalypse world. It’s called Room with a View and will be released this Thursday. Here’s the blurb.

Natalie has watched as the zombie plague devastated civilisation. 
Angus had been a miracle. Twenty-three years old and gorgeous he had appeared like Romeo from the pool area and thrown supplies up to her balcony. But now Angus is gone – he has abandoned her, which is probably for the best. She couldn’t stand to watch him die too.

Stranded four floors up and fenced in on all sides by the infected, food and water supplies are running as low as Natalie’s spirits. A lingering death from starvation seems inevitable.

But then she sees Angus striding for the pool gate with a sawn-off shotgun in his hands. Can he make it past the infected to reach her? And what will it mean if he does?

Waves crashed and rolled onto Kings Beach across the road, the white expanse of sand a beautiful thing. The ocean had long since washed away the bulk of the dead bodies and debris. Only the tank remained and each tide buried it deeper.
     Angus had abandoned her. Which was probably for the best.
     She couldn’t stand to watch him die too.    


  1. Nice six, Kylie! I'm liking the sounds of this story :-)

  2. Oooh. Looking forward to this one. That is SO COOL about the bestseller list. You deserve it. Flesh is a great book.

  3. Just want you to know that Flesh is ruining my sleep schedule this weekend. ;P Congrats on the Amazon ranking! Looking forward to reading this short. You do desperation so well.

  4. Can't wait and I preordered this book!

  5. Can't wait and I preordered this book!

  6. I like the way the beauty of the beach stands in contrast to her sadness over being abandoned and then the self-effacing rationalisation... six sentences of pure lovely.

  7. Love how you bring out the beauty of the beach and follow that up with the reality. I can easily visualize the tank, and the fear of watching Angus die. Great six.

  8. Wonderful visuals in your six! Love the mood you've created.
    Congrats on your Amazon news!

  9. Aww, so sad. :( Can't wait to read this one since I loved Flesh so much! Congrats on the awesome news!

  10. Great setup and follow through on that six. I saw the mention of Flesh on Maryse's blog - always a good thing!

  11. Intriguing, really makes me think what would *I* do - hope Angus is going to come through for her! Great six!
