Six-sentence Sunday: Philip and the dragon

From Part 3 of The Bones of the Earth

As I mentioned in a few earlier posts, I am reposting samples from my original blog (way back on Blogger), with six-sentence samples posted on Sundays.

These come from my first-published novel, The Bones of the Earth.

The dragon opened its mouth, revealing terrible, long, pointy white teeth. It spat a green liquid toward Philip that hissed and steamed where it hit the stone floor. Some of the spit hit Philip’s forearm, and he fell screaming to his knees. His skin bubbled, smoked, cracked and blackened, then began to melt and drip off. The bubbling spread, down toward his fingers, which shriveled, dissolved and fell off. The bubbling spread upwards toward his elbow, dissolving more and more of the arm.

You can also read the whole first chapter here. And if you like it, you can buy it from Amazon (.mobi format for your Kindle), the iBookstore or from Smashwords (all formats available).

Enjoy! Leave a comment if you like.
