TOXIC is up + Tuesday Teasers!



Welcome back to the Tuesday Tease~! TOXIC Part Two is up and running!




Thank you so much to those of you who have already devoured it and stopped by on facebook/twitter to let me know your thoughts. And thank you to those of you who left reviews. I appreciate that so very much! And if you haven’t had a chance to read EPHEMERAL yet, this would be a great time because there are a few characters that bleed over into both series. Try not to hold the fact they’re Count’s against them. It’s a fun read that interweaves with Celestra and with Skyla’s new series even more so. I really hope you’ll enjoy it!
Right now I’m putting the final touches on SOMEONE TO LOVE and will have that up in a week to a week and a half. My editor is getting ready to bounce it back to me one more time.
ETHEREAL KNIGHTS is up next in the editing queue
If you won something through reader appreciation month, most of it is on its way. I’ll do another run to the post office later this week. If I owe you a book, it will ship slowly but will eventually show up in the mail.
This week for reader appreciation
One set of EPHEMERAL PJs





One Celestra Mug (Not pictured)







One signed poster

One signed copy of EPHEMERAL

Five signed bookmarks


Off to the teasers!

ELYSIAN (Celestra Series Book 8)
(Skyla and Marshall)

I hedge my way over to him. He’s so handsome, my heart breaks for him like this. I want to do something for Marshall, something special.
“Do you have a birthday?”
“No”—he cuts me a quick look before continuing with the task at hand—“I was created.”
“We should give you one. Halloween would be fitting,” I tease.
“Demon’s delight? No thank you.”

EVANESCENT (The Countenance 2)
(Laken to Cooper)


“Oh, I don’t know—if a strong guy like you could take on a zombie or two, I think you could handle sleeping next to me in a bed for a few hours.”
“Like I said, I’ll take the floor.”

SOMEONE TO LOVE (New Adult, mature audiences)
           
(Cruise talking to Kendall, a.k.a. Kenny)

“You’re so beautiful.” I press a kiss over her cheek and linger. Kenny would do anything I wanted. I could have her right now. I could burry myself inside her, put an end to this aggressive build up brewing in me once and for all, and explode with relief from the pressure but I can’t. Kenny deserves to have someone say those magic words to her, one of which is the very word she declared war against in class this morning. I suppose I’m a big enough asshole to take her anyway, screw good morals and serendipity but I can’t—not Kenny.
“I think tonight’s lesson is snuggling.” I gently roll her into me until we’re spooning again.
“Snuggling?” She burrows her hair into my neck, scented with flowers and vanilla and her skin burns an erotic hole right through me. I close my eyes and take in the ecstasy and the misery as if she were writing a poem over me with her flesh.

Addison I fell in love with the Celestra Series, as hard as I tried to read SLOWLY through Toxic 2 I just couldn't do it. :) Can't wait to read what happeneds. I have a feeling I will be hooked on the rest of the books too, I read through The Countenance in two days. Thanks for letting us into their worlds!

Whoo hoo!!! I'm so glad to hear I won't have to wait long for more from you. This is brilliant! I don't know how you do it, but I adore you for it!

Can't wait for more of both the Celestra and Count series - but didn't like the tension with Marshall - hate to have him unhappy. And Coop! *sighs*

Loved book 7.5!

Dawn Bain - who needs sleep?!? It goes 1. Addison's books, 2. Work, 3. School and then all that other useless stuff like eating and sleeping. Lol. Dig in, you'll LOVE it!

Hi Addison -- I just got my internet back today - that storm really did us in here on Long Island - but I drove around until I could pick up a signal to download Toxic Part Two on my kindle Thanksgiving morning!! Finished the book the next day and can only now tell you...
It was AMAZING...as are you. Thanks for keeping us captivated with this wonderful story. Look forward to all your upcoming books and will be leaving my feedback on AMAZON shortly.
Thanks again!!

Melinda Geisness said...

Hi Addison I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I got my book marks the other day; They are wonderful thank you!

melissa harville said...

First off just let me say how amazing your books r ive been hooked since ethereal! Im a young mom of 3 boys and i read your books for some much needed me time. Ive read alot of books by many different authors but you are by far my favorite, your imagination and imagery just flow through thewords you write transporting us to worlds your brilliant mind has created. Thank you so much for affordability and for sharing skyla, marshall, logan, and gage with us!

kcasanova88 said...

Omg awesome teasers like always. Can't wait for the new books

deanna said...

Love all of your books!!!!

melissa harville said...


Catthereader said...

Just finished Toxic2. Freaking Ellis, he is disgusting with his constant hornyness and protecting Chloe,what the heck. And I liked him as a character. Ugg. Anyway, loved it and can't believe I have to wait till 2013 to finish. Wondering how this covenant with Marshall is going to pan out. All three boys have done some questionable things. I am a sucker for love though so I think Logan is my hero :)

Bunny F. said...

I love these books!!! I am very much Team Logan and hope he is Skyla's forever <3

Addison Moore said...

Mrsjessc78 - I love that you're reading it with your daughter!!! Say hello for me! *waves* Thank you both for reading. :)

Obsidian_Princess - I will, too but I really am happy to follow Skyla a little bit further. I'll be working on the EVANESCENT book and ELYSIAN in December.

Amanda B. - So glad you enjoyed it! I really had fun writing TOXIC as a whole.

Jenn800MRunner - I'll write faster. ;) I really wish I could. That would be my choice superpower.

Kim Devine - Thanx Kim! I hope to get them to you soon.

shannon harrod - I'm so glad you fell in love. :) I really hope you'll enjoy the endings to both stories. I'll be threading them together for the most part in SKyla's new series.

Dawn Bain- Thank you for the kind words, Dawn! No worries about T2. It will wait for you!

Amory Ford - Oh my gosh you are so sweet! Thank you a million times over for your wonderful support. And as for the raffle, I think you can enter as many times as you like! Up your odds girl! ;)

Breanna - Oh, I love that you're marking it on your calendar! I'm at the tail end stage of edits and I would have done a cover reveal yesterday but ran out of time. I love the cover it has such a sweet, passionate, appeal and yet just a tad bit racy.

Charleen Pendleton - I love that your husband reads them! And I love that you enjoy spending the day in Paragon. :) Thank you for putting a smile on my face.

















Belinda Crawford said...

Loved T2!!!! I am addicted to your series....can't get enough. I can't wait for the last book as well as your new one! I did wonder about the rootbeer bottle that Gage kept, the one Skyla cut Logan with. Why was he keeping it? One minute I'm team Logan next team Gage...I can't make up my mind.
Please let them both have their time. Marshall breaks my heart and makes me laugh..hope he finds his own love.

cesilcox@yahoo.com said...

I keep finding lately that whenever I'm asked who my favorite author is, your name comes up first. I haven't found a book of your's yet that I haven't loved!

Erica Lee said...

Best. Book. Series. EVER. I love Gage :) So addicting, I finished the book in one day and I kind of threw my laptop on the ground to get my kindle when I found out T2 was up on Amazon :P Love you Addison~
-Erica :)

Shannon Young said...

Loved Loved Loved Toxic 2! Seriously can not wait for book 8.... Just not ready for it to end!

KSinger said...

I loved toxic part 2 . Can't wait to see what you do with the last book. I completely forgot about the book in the Oliver's point of view. I'm looking forward to reading more of your work in the future.

Jami Freed said...

I'm so excited for all the upcoming books! I'm going to dive into toxic pt 2 tonight I hope. thanks again for my awesome mug!!

Tyra Eggert said...

Super excited to read Toxic part 2!! :)

Amanda said...

I haven't been able to decide who I think is better for Skyla until this book and I am officially team Marshall. I just finished book 7.5 and I am so ready to read book 8 and find out what happens. I love this series! :)

Jacob said...

This book can't come out fast enough!!! I am so antsy to read it!

Andrea @The Bookish Babes said...

I'm so excited to start reading Toxic! Thanks for sharing the great teasers!

Btw, I got my mug yesterday and I can't wait to show it off in my vlog. Thanks!

Addison Moore said...

Jennifer Hughey - So glad~! You're welcome girl!

AMBERLILLY117 - OK, I confess to secretly loving that, lol! So sorry about the tears. Wish I could have been there to give you a hug. :)

heather peiffer - Aw, I love you for that! And I really love that you included Chloe and Tad.

Jessica Moran - You left me hanging! lol! I guess I do it to you through the books all the time so it's only fair. I can tell you that she in fact does end up with...
As for EK, I'm going book by book and seeing how it goes. It's so fun I may continue it.

JessPinkstaff - I so wish I could make that happen for you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience. :)

Addison Moore said...

Books That Kept Me Up Last Night - Wow, YOU are sweet and lovely~! And BIG thank you for the review shout out. It's so appreciated. xoxo

Maria - I really hope you'll love it~! It's a fun, light read with some major heat. ;)

catinthehat949 - I'm pushing it out the door in early December~! #STL

Jamie Miller - Good luck Jamie~! I hope you do! Thank you for reading!

Jodie Grose - Jodie, thank you for your super kind words. They warmed me all over. :)

Addison Moore said...

Amanda F. - So glad you enjoyed. I'll have a Book 8 teaser up every week!

JMama - Oh my gosh you brought me to tears! Please email me your addy where I can send you something. I insist. Thank you for your dedication. (My email is to the left under view my complete profile).

Melinda Geisness- So glad they arrived!!! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, too! Enjoy the rest of the holiday season!

melissa harville - You touched me. I'm a mom of three boys, too (and one girl right at the end ;) Of course my kids are all almost older than me now, lol! Or at least they believe so. Thank you for the very kind sentiment about my writing. It warms me to know the books speak to you in that way. I hope the magic lingers.

kcasanova88 - Thank you~! My teaser bank has to grow along with the books this time, lol! But at least both have outlines and bits and pieces of chapters. We're on our way. ;)

deanna -Thanks girl~! :)

Catthereader - lol about Ellis~! I felt the same and I love Ellis to death quite literally. The "samich" scene was one of my favs. And, yeah, his inner musings were far too wild. My editor told me to ax that and I didn't listen. I thought about it, and well, it was just Ellis being honest. I did tone it down.

Bunny F. - I heart Logan so. You wouldn't know it by the way T2 ended though. So many strange and interesting things happen in ELYSIAN. I really can't wait to share.

Belinda Crawford - *raises hand* I'll take Marshall~! Oh wait, my husband won't like that. ;) I do think both Logan and Gage would be perfect for Skyla. ELYSIAN will be tough.

cesilcox@yahoo.com - You are an angel from Heaven. Thank you for that. I'm all smiles because of you right now. I'm truly humbled. I hope I never disappoint.

Erica Lee - I hope your lap top survived! And I'm super glad you thought it was the best book yet. I hope you'll feel that way about ELYSIAN as well. In fact, I hope you'll love the ending.

Shannon Young - Aw, thank you. I'm sad to see it end as well. I'm really ready to begin Skyla's new series though. A lot will change and a lot will stay the same.


Addison Moore said...

KSinger - Thanx~! And I hope you like what I do with the last book. It will be tricky. ;) ETHEREAL KNIGHTS is looking like an early January release at this point.

Jami Freed - You're welcome~! I hope you have a blast on Paragon! Let me know you thoughts.

Tyra Eggert - Happy reading, girl~!

Amanda - Ah...Marshall loves you for that. He feels there is no one better suited.

Jacob - I hope you enjoy the ride, Jacob! Buckle up, it's a wild one. ;) Please come back and let me know what you think!

Andrea @The Bookish Babes - I must see the vlog! I will keep an eye out. That is awesome!! I'm thrilled it arrived safe and sound and preferably unbroken, lol!

caitlin huddleston said...

I hate waiting!!!!!!! I may re-read some of the books for the heck of it!! :)

Racheliswicked said...

Good grief! These teasers are making me frustrated! Lol I really tried to pace myself with T2 but I just couldn't quite reading. I stayed up 'til 3 am one night just to keep reading until I passed out ;) I can't wait to dig into the new books when they come out! Until then, I'll just try to finish rereading

Denise said...

I read Toxic 7.5 and even cried. The ups and downs of Skyla and her crew are too good to miss!

Teacher Tab said...

Still love diving into your books every night. They help me sleep peacefully and content (I read right before bed ever night ;))

Tiffany Garris said...

I can not wait for book 8. Is it here yet? I am so upset over the ending. I hate cliff hangers. I understand why they are there but I still hate them.

Addison Moore said...

caitlin huddleston - I'm with you on the waiting~! *writes faster* And BIG thank you for even thinking of rereading!! That is SO very nice of you. I hope you enjoy Paragon just as much the second time around. :)

Addison Moore said...

Racheliswicked - I love that you can't pace yourself~! And 3 a.m? I hope you got a good nap the next day! I've been known to hit that insane hour myself every now and again and the next day always feels like a fog. Happy rereading~!

Denise - Denise, I cried, too, lol! Those last few scenes gutted me during edits. I think the last book will be emotional for me as well. I really am taking solace in Skyla's new series!

Teacher Tab - Aw~! I can't tell you enough how much your comment melted me. I'm so glad you're enjoying the books that way. Spending time in Paragon isn't a bad way to finish the day. ;) It's often how I finish mine.

Tiffany Garris - I SO get it. I know!!! I really know..., lol! Cliff hangers are tough. The funny part is even with me I often start the next book after I finish the cliff hanger just so I can rest, lol! WICKED was a tough cliff hanger for me and the beginning of VEX was one of my favs. ;)


Kaitlyn Ciminillo said...

Just finished Ephemeral, and I LOVED it!! Time to start T2, so excited I love your work!!

NikThomps said...

I found this series at the beginning of November and devoured books 1-7 in 3 days (juggled with 4 kids a husband, 2 cats and a dog...) I just could not put them down. I thought I was going to have to wait forever for toxic part 2, but its out already and I can't wait to read it! I am also looking SO forward to the second book in the Countenance series as Laken shows us that not all the Counts are evil!! <3

katiekayy51 said...

Ah! just started the series a week ago and I have completely devoured it. I love to write and you have beyond inspired me. these books have literally had me in tears from laughing and crying. I am waiting patiently for book 8!! please never stop writing, you are my complete inspiration Addison!

Addison Moore said...

Kaitlyn Ciminillo - Yay! EPHEMERAL was a serious thrill ride for me. I'm super glad you enjoyed it. Happy reading with T2~!

NikThomps- Oh my gosh! You did devour them!! And hats off because we live the same life, lol! Except with me it's 4 kids, two dogs, one cat. Husbands count, too, right? ;)

katiekayy51 - Wow, thank you. I hope I have the ability to inspire you for a long time to come. xoxo

Kaitlyn said...

I actually just started reading this series, but I completely love it! :)

Danielle said...

I finally had a chance to read toxic 2. OMG! I wanted to scream when i turned the page and it was over. I don't think I can wait until the last book is out, I am dying. AS far as the whole love mess goes... I was so upset over what Gage did to Sklya, but now I do not trust him and I want to yell at Sklya to run the other way. I feel so bad for Logan, but with every book Marshall pulls my heart strings just a little more. So far he is the only one who has not turned his back on Skyla. Oh, and what the heck is going on with Skyla and Chloe? gaaah. So many details left unanswered!! Thank you for writing another great book! I always end up with severe book hangover for weeks after I am done reading one of yours. I just can't bring myself to read anything else because my emotions are so tied up in the book. I am looking forward to your other books as well as the final installment in this series.

Alysha Parent said...

First let me start by saying that once again you have outdone yourself. Toxic Part II was absolutely AMAZING!!! It made me laugh, cry and just sit at the end of my seat. You are truely a gifted writer. I enjoy reading your work everytime. And for the record, your cliffhanger is killing me!! Ahh! I can't wait for the next book. Thanks as always for sharing and for always keeping me guessing and wanting more.

Addison Moore said...

Kaitlyn - Hi Kaitlyn~! Welcome to the world of Paragon. I really hope you'll enjoy the ride and please stop by often and update me on your reading journey. I love to talk to you guys! Happy reading~!

Danielle - Oh my gosh I LOVE that you have a book hangover for weeks~!!!! Honestly, my brain is stuck on Paragon 24/7. So its nice to know the characters have an effect on other people, too. ;) A million thank yous. I hope you'll like the last book and please if there's anything specific you want answered, let me know. I have a running list from readers. You can message/email me or ask here on the blog.

Alysha Parent - Thank you. :) This was the only book where the cliffhanger got to me. It really did gut me. I had some brutal nights of edits because of it. The cliffhanger in Wicked was terribly exciting for me, lol! I had to write VEX immediately to help Skyla out of that debacle just so I could sleep at night. *sigh* True story. ;)

redheads rule said...

Oh my gosh I was up untill 4:00 in the morning finishing T2 it was sooooooooo good perfect cliffhanger ;)

Sheri said...

Once again u have hit a home run with this book. The way that u put n the cliff hanger in I didnt even know i was getting close to the end because mu kindle showed I was at 88% so whn it popped up i was totally surprised!
Addison Moore u have become by far my most favorite author...I know u are writing like a fiend with all the projects that u have going...just know I am snapping them up as fast as my hot little fingers can...and i loved how ur skyla's fav author as well ;)...one more thing thank you to your kids cause know dishes can be a pain in the patoot!

Sally Slayer said...

Yay!! I'm so excited for book 8! Also, the new series seems interesting so far, too! (plus it gives me an excuse to slack off, because I'm too busy reading lol)

Addison Moore said...

redheads rule - Oh no, lol! I really hope you got some sleep. I'm glad you thought it was the perfect cliffhanger. Last one. ;)

Sheri - Sheri, lol! You're so right about the dishes. I'm beyond happy that you enjoyed part two! Actually TOXIC was one long beast. I'm really humbled that you sat through so many of Skyla's adventures. Thank you so much for that.

Sally Slayer - Reading should be an occupation! It's so not slacking. ;) I hope you do enjoy the Counts!

Michelle Mushie Mushaninga said...

I have recently started reading your books I absolutely love Logan and gage and I can't wait for book 8 but I really hope Skyla ends up with Logan I believe in true love and I think it would bring the series to a beautiful end if they end as a couple it's the only way

Michelle Mushie Mushaninga said...

It just has to end that way team Logan forever. True love will always prevail. Skyla was meant for Logan:) <3
