This week I decided to use six sentences from my 2007 Samhain Publishing book Where One Road Leads which happens to be one of my favorite books that I’ve published.
The only thing that marred her pretty face was the scar that ran up from the left corner of her lip to her cheekbone before arcing down toward her ear and the other one that began directly between her dark golden blonde brows and disappeared into her hairline. These weren’t thin lines. No, the accident had taken its toll on her as well.
But it had left her alive. He wished he could say the same about Eddie or Liz or the out-of-towner from Rhode Island who was an unfortunate passenger in the second car.

What an excellent description!
Thanks so much!
Fabulous description on her scar and the inner conflict she’s having because of accident. Good six!
Great six! I’m very curious about the accident and their connection.
Thanks Karyn. I might have to continue posting this one.
Very engrossing story, vividly descriptive. Great work, Ceri!
Hi Ryan. Thanks so much!!
Awesome six. You make me love her in an instant.
Wow, thanks so much Jo-Ann!
It sounds like she’s been through a lot. Poor girl. Great six!
Nice character building. I’m on her side already!
Excellent, Ann. That’s what I’m aiming for.
Nice teaser! Now I have to read it to find out about the accident.
Don’t you love teasers, Ally? 😀
Man I want more!

Excellent description! Want more.
Thanks Gale! I’ll have to post more of this one next week.
Looks like he feels responsible for the accident.
Hmmm…. we’ll see. 🙂 Thanks for stopping in, Sueann.
This is really great. I sensed some tension before the “tense jaw” so that line really packed a wallop.
Wonderful integration of description with back story in a masculine POV. Bravo!
Thanks so much, Jean Marie. I appreciate it!
Makes me wonder about that accident. Good six!
Thanks Sharon. I’ll have to share more of this one.
I think scars add so much to a character, male or female. Great description, Ceri!
Well done. You did a wonderful job describing the scar and using it to set up future conflict. I love the fact that you decided to give her the scar instead of the guy. Nice 6!
Thanks Jess! I love flawed characters, especially, for some reason, heroines, though I have a few emotionally scarred heroes too. Glad you stopped in.
