Six Sentence Sunday - May 29

So, in keeping with last week's snippet from my sequel, The Master Key, here's another little teaser.

In this scene, my protagonist, Josie, (written in first-person) has to make her first public appearance as wife of the President of the World.  Now, she's a 300-year old relic from the 21st Century, so, her "social skills" are a bit lacking, ie: she can't help but crack out some good cuss-words.

Half listening and completely deaf from nerves, I fumbled my way through the proper responses required should a question be directed at me. Also on my list of required necessities was how to ignore the media and obtrusive individuals; how to talk about absolutely nothing and do so convincingly; and, most importantly, not to swear in public. The latter part had been written in big, bold capital letters. 



The Master Key, due out this July is the sequel to The Lancaster Rule.  In this second book of the trilogy, the heroine, Josie, now married to world president John Lancaster, and begins her new life in the future. But all is not idyllic as a dangerous man from her past returns as old enemies return to plague her life.
Revelations of Josie's past, three hundred years ago, surface and begin to unfold, every question she has ever wanted to know is answered. Events lead her to the Scrap Yard, a cybernetics space station where she must battle it out with her enemies.

  8. I like Josie already and I barely know her! I'd hate to be in her position, especially no swearing.

  9. Looks like a great book. I hope she follows the rules to keep from trouble...then again, I hope she doesn't.

    Good luck with the release.
