from Trophies, chapter ten
Trophies is a polished ms currently off with an editor, a mystery with an amateur sleuth that falls within the grey region between a warm cozy and a blistering thriller. Feel free to read the first chapter here.
Six Sentence Sunday remains good, legal fun and writers are encouraged to join in with six sentences selected from their current work in progress, polished ms making the rounds, or published masterpiece. Yes, I admit I snuck an extra sentence in there.
