Six Sentence Sunday: You see, Delia has this...thing.

It's another six sentence snippet from STONE KISSED. Reviews have been generally positive, and I'm looking forward to the release day on 12/27 (though of course, you can preorder on your Kindle, NookColor or other e-reader now). Be sure to visit the other authors at http://sixsunday.blogspot.com for their #SixSunday snippets. After all, there's nothing lonelier than an empty e-reader. Well, maybe something but...)

Delia stood before the thick oak doors of the Steward County General Hospital four and half hours later. Waiting won’t make it any better.

“Waiting won’t make it any better,” the statue of St. Francis said from his alcove to the right of the entrance. His speech had slowed and softened over the years so he sounded like the locals who rested on his bench before him.

“I know,” she mumbled between clenched teeth. “Give me a minute.”

  6. Thanks everyone. Yes, statues talk to Delia. And she finds this most bothersome most of the time! Eleri--with the exception of giving birth, I never want to walk into hospitals. I admire those that work there, day-in, day-out. Especially childrens' hospitals.

  12. Thanks, everyone, I'm glad you're intrigued! Christa, that's exactly how the story idea came in the first place--I wondered what the statues, carvings in Manhattan would say if they could talk.
