Comment On Eyes And Go For An eBook!

ImageThe eyes have it. I’m fascinated by eyes; they hold meaning, they tell emotion and the colors seem to be endless shades and patterns. Because of my fascination, I have to curb the amount of emphasis I put on eyes when I write. Enough is enough some times. In my latest release, The Art of Love and Murder, Lacy Dahl has startling green eyes the color of lime. Her parents were killed in a plane crash that she survived as an infant. The one picture she has of her father shows the same eyes. But there’s a hitch when she discovers another man who knew her mother and has the same green eyes.

Momentarily struck dumb by his eye color, she stared back. Why hadn’t she noticed until now? Although not as light as hers or her father’s, the professor’s eyes were a startling green shade.
His hand nudged her arm. “Lacy?”
She jumped. “Oh, yes.” She slipped the tissue from the half-carved wolf. Another glance at his eyes and goose bumps riddled her arms.
He lifted the wood close to his face, using both hands as if handling a delicate hummingbird. His thumb traced the neck of the creature to the juncture of where it emerged from the wood. When he brought the piece to his nose, closing his eyes and breathing deeply, Lacy wanted to turn away from the oddly erotic gesture.
He swallowed, opened his eyes and set the wolf back on the tissue. His attention shifted to the photograph of the chest. He touched the photo, a smile on his lips. “Where is the chest?”
The chest. Like he knew it, had seen it before. “I’m having it sent. You’ve seen it before?”
He didn’t move, stared out the window as if deep in thought. “I’d like to show you something, Lacy.”
“All right.” She waited, watching his profile.
He turned and stared into her face a moment. “You’re so very lovely. A creation full of life and passion, surpassing any art form.”
His hypnotic voice floated on the classical strains drifting from the living room. She couldn’t speak. Didn’t know what to say. She’d been lifted upon a pedestal of admiration. With any other man, she might consider his words a means to a sexual end. The professor’s intentions, however, were crystal. He admired her like a work of art.

How much importance do you place in a person’s eyes?

Although she didn’t start out to write romance, she’s found all good stories involve complicated human relationships. She’s also found no matter a person’s age, a new discovery is right around every corner. Whether humorous or serious, straight contemporary or mystery, all her books revolve around those two facts.

    Hmm, now I’m intrigued.

    Very intriguing post! Hook, line and sinker here. I once saw a single eye on Flikr and that inspired an entire race of people in my SpiritWalker Series (Susan Edwards). Eyes are fascinating for sure!
