Hey all! Giving Six Sentence Sunday another blast.
Anyway, with Healer’s Touch due to be released early next year, I thought I might work on garnering some interest.
A brief background: Braph, my antagonist, is travelling with the intention of finding Llew, my protagonist. In the following scene, he has just arrived in her home country (luckily at the other end).
The Lady Pancetelle wasn’t much of a lady in Braph’s opinion. His ears had been assaulted by foul language throughout the journey, she smelled as bad as the Ryaen docks, and no-one could accuse her of being sleek: there was a definite swelling around her middle. She’d also been a rough ride, but he could excuse her a great deal: at least she had carried him safely to Ryaen.
He scratched his beard, sweeping his eyes over the docks. Dirty, stinking and noisy, the scene offended his senses. Sea birds squawked overhead, showering departing passengers in green and white guano.

And again, here’s a blurb:
Llew has a gift. Her body heals itself from any injury—but at a cost to anyone nearby.
In a country fearful of magic, freeing yourself from the hangman’s noose by wielding forbidden power brings dangers of its own. After dying and coming back, Llew drops from the gallows into the hands of Jonas: the man carrying the knife with the power to kill her—permanently.
The last of his warrior race, Jonas is haunted by memories of his loved ones. At his side, the cursed knife that took their lives, which also acts as a cruel reminder of his pain. Jonas has learned the hard way that caring for others means their death.
Jealous of his half-brother’s celebrated strength and speed, Braph created the device that gives him the power to perform magic, any magic. But it needs fuel—the blood of a healer …

Oh, and if you’re still not interested, here’s what my publisher has to say:
“Healer’s Touch is quirky, fast-paced, deliciously humorous and suitable for both the YA and adult market. With Wild West and Steampunk homages throughout – you can’t help but admire Deb E’s talent. Cross genre, cross style, but pure brilliance.” — Kristell Ink
Of course, they may have an ulterior motive for saying such nice things…
