If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

   8 sentences from my novel Bloodstone

   The second Ebony stepped past the first stone, the sun blinked out of the sky and darkness descended. The smell of rotting flesh seeped into her nostrils and pulled the bile from the back of her throat. 

   She threw up just as Aurora stepped past, missing her dress but catching Aurora’s shoes. 

   Aurora jumped back. “Disgusting!” 

   Ebony wiped her mouth with the back of her bare arm, there wasn’t much else to use. “I’d say I’m sorry, but you deserved it.” Her stomach clenched.

You dont even want to know how many times, in my much younger days, someone has puked on my shoes. LOL. Not for this reason but I understand that the stench of death permeates everything and you can actually taste it. Ugh. Very realistic 8.

Hmm, quite a dark situation they're in. Intriguing. Excellent excerpt!

Took a second reading to realize "Ebony" was a proper noun instead of the second in line of a group of creatures called "Ebonies." Shouldn't be a problem in context, though.

I hope Aurora did deserve it. Dark excerpt.

Hi Summer .. that's not so nice! Gory and gungy and rather unpleasantly squalid ..

Great eight sentences though - cheers Hilary
