Six Sentence Sunday – Facing Death #SixSunday

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: Llew’s friend’s employer was found dead, but when the law (Farries) captured him, he pointed the finger at Llew, sending them both to the hangman’s noose.

If you trusted them, if you let your heart rest with them, they left, just as Llew’s ma and pa had done. Sure, they were most likely dead, but that offered no added comfort, because they surely had left. And now Kynas had proved Llew right in her decision to hold back from giving her heart to another. That should have meant she was safe from him and his betrayal.

The crowd buzzed with excitement, jostling each other for the best view and sharing their opinions on the two thieves, murderers, and livestock sodomites (how Llew earned that charge, she couldn’t guess). People laughed, as though they weren’t about to see two children – at seventeen, nearly eighteen, Llew would have been the first to proclaim her maturity, but now it seemed appropriate to lean the other way – lose their lives.

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…




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.
