#SixSunday from The Dark Man






I started revising my NaNoWriMo novel this past month.  At the time it was titled Enlightened, but I have since scratched that.  Right now the working title is The Dark Man.  I’m not exactly enamored with this either, but it’ll do for now:

  

The bitch would not die.


Vines wove around her limbs and girdled her slight frame, squeezing and crushing.  Her once porcelain skin had turned an awkward shade of purple.  She should be dead by now, but instead of kicking up her toes like a good little nature spirit, she stood ramrod straight and her stormy grey-blue eyes bore into his.


Defiance.


That was new, refreshing really.



I have a blurb on my new website about the story.  You can check it out here.  Please let me know what you think of the site.  It's just another WIP.

    1. Thanks for stopping by today! I figure the title will come to me at some point. I could live with The Dark Man.

  2. Is that the intro? I like it, whatever it is! Like Jess said, the title will come to you.

    1. Thanks for checking it out. I'm concerned that it is a little dark i.e. hard to read, but it does portray the right tone. Thanks for letting me know about the typo. I need a copyeditor on retainer!

  5. Hi, I haven't been by in a while. Looks like you're doing well, the new site looks fantastic. I think the dark tone really matches the Dark King's Lover. Excellent!
