Hi fans & fellow Sixers,
I realized today that I've posted exactly zero excerpts from Knight of Hearts. That hasn't been an oversight exactly. There's a twist in the middle of the story that makes it hard to pick something that doesn't give things away. It's also a very character-driven story, so a lot of what's fun (and funny) grows out of who the characters are and, without that knowledge, an excerpt doesn't have the full impact. So in choosing six sentences (always a challenge when one is so limited), I found this snippet from the blackest moment of the book for our hero Mac when he believes the woman he loves is beyond his reach. I hope you enjoy.
He was going to spend the rest of his life trying to figure out what he could have done differently.
Mac was tempted to save himself the grief and just pound his head to mush on brick facade of the store in front of him. He couldn't win. No matter what he did, in the end, he'd lose her.
He took a deep breath and turned his steps toward the hotel. If he had to lose her anyway, at least he could go out a hero.
Knight of Hearts is Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever ebooks are sold
