Six Sentence Sunday — Soul of the Succubus #1 #SixSunday
Welcome to “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you’d care to leave.
Soul of the Succubus is a Romance on the Go story from Evernight, short enough at 8500 words to be read in a single sitting, before bed, on a commute, etc. A short story writer at heart, I love that the world of digital publishing makes this length viable for a stand-alone work.
<Begin authorial puffery> My editor likened this story to Buffy the Vampire Slayer only instead of a slayer, Buffy, or Yve in my case, is a nearly four thousand year old succubus. High praise I hope the reading public agrees with.</end authorial puffery> 🙂
In this six, Yve, a succubus, has just completed a redemption ceremony to reclaim her soul after delivering her millionth and final soul to Lou, a demon of the underworld. But Lou is not letting his top succubus go so easily and snatches her back right as she’s about to return to the mortal world.
“Nobody cheats me!” Less than a second later [Lou]’s standing in front of me, my chin in his hand. “Especially not by a temptress who had nothing more complicated to do than spread her legs.”
My jaw tenses. I’m sick of the attitude that succubi are no more than walking vaginas with a top notch advertising campaign. I’ve put up with the snickers and sneers from Lou and his demons for four millennia.
Soul of the Succubus releases July 24th from Evernight Publishing!

What a great six! Can’t wait to read more 😀
Thank you! Soon, very soon. I’m chomping at the bit myself.
Wow! Such an intense exchange! Looking forward to seeing more of this!
Thanks, Dara! 🙂
I love how strong a character she is. Nice six! 🙂
Very strong but a little on the jaded side after being at this game for so long. Thanks for the visit and comment!
Love this six! Tense and bold 🙂
Thanks, Melynda! 🙂
Ooooh, and what’s she going to do about it? Great six!
Well…right at that moment she’s being held down in her seat by a seven foot goon. But the cavalry is on its way!
Oh, snap! Girl’s got a problem! This is already on my TBR list — can’t wait!
Yay! Thanks! She’s had one after another in this little ditty.
Congratulations on your upcoming release! Great six!
Thanks, Elyzabeth! 🙂
She sounds like a fabulous character that I’d love spending an evening with.
Thanks, S.J. Yve was a lot of fun to write, sort of Sex in the City meets Buffy, I guess.
I can’t wait to get my hand on this one!
Not much longer for either of our ROTG’s! Thanks for the comment and the “like” m’dear!
Well, they really need to have a ‘love’ option. 😀
Great six! Looking forward to this one.
Thanks so much, Doris!! 🙂
I like the voice in this snippet. 😀
Thank you, Gayle. 🙂
Damn! She’s got growl and attitude. I love her remark about walking vaginas and advertising. Great six! 🙂
Heh! Yes, she does indeed. Thanks for visiting me, Siobhan. Always a pleasure! 🙂
Four millennia is a long time to put up with that nonsense! It’s time Yve unleashes some of that wicked succubi secret sauce on Lou. Can’t wait to read this one! I do love the short ROTG format. They’re like delicious bite-sized nuggets of sexy. 😉
Great voice in this 6, especially loved this line: “I’m sick of the attitude that succubi are no more than walking vaginas with a top notch advertising campaign” — sounds like a great story, hope she gets to kick some demon butt
Great voice! Love her character!
Like her attitude and the friction here. Great six! Sorry I’m late, crazy week.
