(From Facebook with love! 😉
Welcome back to the Tuesday Tease! First, character interviews and all kinds of cool stuff are happening at Supa Gurl Books this week, so please go over and visit, follow her blog, and comment because she is beyond awesome! (Click here for LINK.)
And guess what??? I penned ‘THE END’ of Book 7!
It sure would be nice if I had a title to go along with it. I’m down to two but heavily leaning towards one so maybe I’ll do a title and mock cover reveal soon.
Nevertheless, book 8 is already outlining itself, and I’m toying with the idea of 3 POVs Skyla, Logan and Gage. As for Marshall, well, we pretty much all know what’s on his mind. (Although that might make for several interesting chapters.) And for sure I wouldn’t count him out in the race for Skyla’s heart. ?Really.
TV series news: I’ve been invited to Fox studios to talk CLESTRA in just a few short weeks! I’m super excited and totally anxious, but I’m trying to ignore my nerves for now. I’ve put in a request to have a twenty-four pack of Dr. Pepper and Matthew McConaughey waiting for me when I arrive. Do you think it’s too soon?
Honest to God, my big plan involves wearing hawt yet comfortable shoes and keeping my mouth shut so they might invite me back. I’m just hoping the error of my home haircut would have grown out by then.
Anyway, in other news, I’m full throttle all over EPHEMERAL this month because, well, it’s time to push that baby out the door. So there’s that.
Hope you enjoy the teasers!
EPHEMERAL (The Countenance)
*(Laken and Wesley)
“It’s because we’re not Celestras.” I dig my hands into my pockets. I want to lay it on thick and call him out on the fact Celestra is obviously the most powerful. I have the distinct feeling the reason their numbers are so low is because the Counts have arranged for that very thing. A genocide is underway no thanks to their vampire-like efforts and it sounds like it’s a pretty exhaustive effort—and that Wes would be an active participant makes me want to vomit all over his shiny brown shoes.
Celestra Series Book 7
*(Skyla and Ellis)
“See that necklace she’s wearing?” The giant wicked rose lets off a necrotic flicker of light as if winking in our direction—knowing Marshall it probably is. “It’s basic training for Fems. They invade her mind and turn it into a big gelatinous puddle of crap.”
“That’s effing sick,” Ellis recoils at my masterful descriptive.
“I know this because I swallowed it once and it really effed with my mind.” I borrow his doctored expletive to prove my point. “You were in my hallucination. You were an ox with a body of a man. You were kind of hot if I don’t say so myself.”
“Cool,” Ellis expands his chest to annunciate said hotness.
*(Skyla and Marshall)
“I must leave. Shall I grace you with my lips? I believe Jock Strap is witnessing this encounter with great interest. Oddly, he’s replaying our resplendent exchange of passion, casting himself as the lead in a rather pornographic display of affection like something off www.watchmygf.xxx. I doubt we'd be so crude, and in this, a public establishment.” Marshall glides into a wicked grin.
*(Skyla and Gage)
“About last night,” his hot breath warms my bare shoulder. I’m suddenly regretting wearing nothing but a tiny bikini top and cutoffs. I wish I could wrap myself in a blanket around Gage. I never want him to look at me.
“It won’t happen again.” I wanted to tell him that I would have done that with any boy that happened to be in my room—that he wasn’t special, that he never was. But that’s one lie I don’t think I could pull off. When all is said and done, and I look back on my life, Gage Oliver will have been my biggest heartache.
He presses up from behind and warms me with his body. His cologne enwreathes me, makes me ache to touch him.
“I was sort of hoping it would,” he blows it hot in my ear.
*(Skyla and Logan)
I brush the pads of my fingers along his jaw. I can easily spend an eternity like this with Logan in his perfect dreams. Well, they’re usually perfect. Tonight they’re a bit scattered and x-rated in nature.
“Are all your dreams this explicit?” I hold back a laugh while reeling him in by the lip of his jeans.
“Mostly.” He breathes into my neck and dots a trail of kisses up to my ear.
“I bet you look forward to this every single night.”
“What I look forward to,” he pauses, grazing over my earlobe with his teeth, “is turning this into reality—with you—every single night.”
Character interviews, deleted scenes, and even a few short scenes in the boys POV (point of view) will all be taking place this week over at Supa Gurls Blog –don't miss!
