Six Sentence Sunday. (click to visit the hosting blog) Every week, when I register, I'm amazed at how many new links have been added. This is the most wonderful way to view a sample of an author's work and I thank those of you who come back each week to read more from First Degree Innocence.
If you recall, my heroine, Carrie Lang, has been arrested for a crime she didn't commit and sentenced to ten long years in prison. Her mother dead, her father's whereabouts unknown, she faces the horror on her own. Young and naive, she quickly learns about trust and cynicism.
Here's this week's six:
Carrie slunk from the holding cell and stopped where instructed. Another female guard shoved a scratchy woolen blanket and two badly worn sheets at her, followed by an oft-used towel that had long ago lost its whiteness, an equally aged washcloth and a packet of toiletries. On top of that she plopped a second change of clothing, two pair of socks, panties and a black
mesh laundry bag.
Carrie fought to balance the lot and glanced apprehensively at Ogden, waiting for further direction—daring not to move.
“Follow me,” the woman snapped. “I have a special bed reserved just for you.”
First Degree Innocence was contracted and published as an ebook by Books We Love Publishing Partners. It's also available in print via Createspace. Hope you'll continue to visit as I share more of Carrie Lang's helplessness.
