8 sentence Sunday

Here is a few lines from Elf on the Beach, my first urban fantasy novella.

“So… are you going to join the family business?” Kyle was itching to know what it was.
Roone frowned and sipped his beer. “I have no idea. I should know by now. I’m supposed to feel it like a calling or something, and I’ve got nothing.”
“You aren’t going to tell me what it is, are you?”
“You wouldn’t believe me if I did.” That impish grin was back.



You can read more snippets here:
Roone Sorley is an elf on a mission. He has one year to live in the mortal world and experience everything it has to offer before deciding if he is going to return to the North Pole and immortality or stay and become human. Christmas in Australia is all sun, sand, and surf. For Kyle Morgan, that means lots of tourists wanting to learn how to surf, but he hates Christmas. This time of year always reminds him about the family he doesn’t have.

With the clock ticking and only days left, Roone plans on making the most of the heat and the beach and his hot surfing instructor. Beyond that he has no idea what he wants. However with a little magic, he might be able to give Kyle exactly what he needs.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package "Sleigh Ride".
