I feel like it’s the end of an era. Graduation, the last day of a job, locking the door and leaving a house you’ve sold. This is the final official Six Sentence Sunday post. Sara Brookes who founded it has decided to stop doing it.
I participated for about two years. At times I found it limiting. ONLY six sentences? But I need more! If I could squeak in one more, two more…but Sara was stickler for the rules. Though posting the blog was easy, it took hours out of my Sunday to visit other authors’ blogs and comment. I came to despise Captcha for the time it added to the process.
But I made friends, got to know other authors. I bought a lot books as a result of Six Sunday. My writing improved. Sometimes while working I’d ask myself, if this were a Six Sunday post, are these sentences as concise and descriptive as I would want them?
Now that Six Sunday has ended, I will participate in Saturday Spankings (up to 8 sentences!). Since I write DD, it’s a perfect fit for me. I’ll continue Stephanie and Mark’s story on Saturdays instead of Sundays.
In honor the the last official Six Sunday, I’m presenting ONLY six sentences from Body Politics. Stephanie, a feminist, and Mark, a chauvinist, are on a blind date. He likes her a lot. She’s not at all charmed by him. She learns she’s in a spanko bar and storms out. She’s in the parking lot calling her friend who’d fixed her up when Mark appears.
“YOU FORGOT YOUR signature keepsake.” Mark held out the glass, relieved and pleased to find her in the parking lot. A primal instinct to chase and capture had ignited when she’d flounced out of the bar. He’d let her run to give her space, intending to track her down tomorrow. He’d had the cocktail waitress empty out her glass so he could give it to her, an excuse to see her again. But Stephanie had waited for him.
That glass plays an important role in the plot…What will Stephanie do now? Tune in next week (Saturday) to find out.

Body Politics Blurb
Feminist Stephanie Gordon knows the instant she meets blind date Mark DeLuca it’s going to be a wasted evening. Sure the deputy chief of police is criminally sexy, but he’s arrogant, domineering and sexist. Thank goodness after the date ends, she’ll never have to see him again. A member of the Rod and Cane Society, an organization of men who discipline their women by spanking, Mark DeLuca is attracted to Stephanie like a paddle to a well-rounded ass. He sees beneath the shield of feminist militancy to the soft, sensitive woman she tries to hide. When she storms away in a snit, the chase is on. Can a man who spanks convince a diehard feminist her true strength lies in submission?
