Cover Reveal & Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday. 
This week, I've been working on Book 2 of the De Marco Men series, since I have a publication date, final edits and cover art from Silver Publishing for Book One, Soft Sounds of Pleasure, due to be released this June.
Book Two is as yet untitled, but it's the story of Dan De Marco and Cynda Avery, the young woman Dan finds chained to the bumper of his truck. I decided to post the opening six sentences:



The color of her skin combined with the chain stretching from her slender neck to the hitch on the bumper of his Chevy truck hit Daniel De Marco like a punch to the gut. His truck was black, the factory paint a color that he’d been told was the absence of all light. The woman could be described as black too, but showcased against his truck, her skin defied the label. She was a rich brown, with depths of shade that varied from her shoulders to her tummy to elbows to her knees--a kaleidoscope of darkness which seemed more to him like the presence of all color.
She was also half-naked. Early morning sun caressed her curves and her costume, both delighting and annoying him. She wore a lime-colored tube top with black stripes that frankly hurt his eyes. 






 


Cover Reveal for Soft Sounds of Pleasure, the story which introduces the De Marco brothers, and tells the story of the youngest brother, Colton, and the married woman he's always admired from a distance.


Lila figures her hot hook-ups with handsome, younger Colton won’t
outlast his nephew’s baseball season.
Colton wants a home run with Lila, but thirteen-year-old Jonah’s
being foul, Lila’s loyal heart won’t let him pinch-hit for her dead husband,
and the whole town seems to be keeping score.
Game on.

In other news, I've been contracted to join the editing staff at Silver Publishing, a position I'll begin as soon as Dan and Cynda's manuscript has been completed and submitted.

Thanks for reading, and please follow the embedded link to read six sentences from the other participating authors  this week.
