A Bit from Dancing on Her Bones

Our wild girl is growing up… and I’m having so much fun listening to her teenage voice, that I can no longer keep myself from sharing some of the new her with you. I am still playing around with tone, timeline, setting, even with point of view, but here is a bit of what little AlmaMia Cienfuegos sounds like at this particular moment...

Oops! the excerpt is gone, but you can find “AlmaMia Cienfuegos” on Amazon ;-)

    1. She might be one of my favorite characters. I love that "she shoots form the hip" and through the eyes lol. I think AlmaMia Cienfuegos is many of us ;-)

  3. So... IS he a spirit? I must know! LOL

    Love it :)

    Did catch sometimes though: "he had been an echo *incapably* of thought."
    'Incapable,' perhaps?

    1. I think we'll have to wait a little to learn more about grey-eyed Sebastian, but not too long--I'm working hard and long.

      Thanks sooo much for catching my tiresome ability to eat pauses. I've fixed it ;-)

  6. *sigh* She's growing up too fast, Mags. I'm not ready for her to be a teenager yet. (love the storyline!)

    1. You've made me grin in all kinds of ways. I too want to see little AlmaMia's tale "bound and sitting among the baskets of bones on my table..." And I JUST got some bones to start my collection ;-)
