Six Sentences from The Wild SIght

Four years ago this week, my debut novel The Wild Sight hit the bookstore shelves! (Unfortunately that was the same week the economy went into the toilet, but that's a post for another day.)

So in honor of the day I "officially" became a published author, I thought I'd share six sentences from my first published work.

So here are 6 sentences from Page 66 of The Wild Sight. The hero, Donovan is having a confrontation with his father Dermot, whose speech has been affected by a stroke:

Shaken with memories, Donovan felt his own face heating up. "Just because you never told me doesn't mean I don't know." He bent down nose to nose with his father and uttered what he'd never dare before. "People whispered for years that she ran off with another man."

"Nuh!" Dermot cried, rearing back in his chair, his mouth twitching with fury. "Eee-jit!" he finally managed to fling out, then another string of nonsense syllables.

If you haven't read The Wild Sight, it's available in print and ebook from Amazon. (Aunty winks conspiratorially.)

Thanks Patricia!

I started reading the Kindle version while on vacation and was truly APPALLED at the horrible formatting done by my publisher. :-( Yet another thing over which traditionally published authors have no control.
