Welcome back to the Tuesday Tease!
It happened. Celestra came to a conclusion and I penned “the end.” ELYSIAN is finished~!!! It’s just a first draft so it needs edits, and more edits and polishing, like lots of it. But I’ll get right on that and hopefully by the end of April, beginning of May it will hit e-shelves. *hopes* And, it is looong. On it’s own it will be the longest book in the Celestra series. But I think that’s a good thing because it’s sort of a bittersweet goodbye.
I can’t believe this crazy ride has finally come to an end. It was dizzying at times, and filled with heady love scenes that often spanned three suitors, but I’ve had fun on that island—plus there was Marshall. If you’re interested, you can still see Skyla’s life unfold in her New Adult series. I want to observe her and the peeps from Paragon a little ways into the future and I really hope you’ll join me. It will be different but familiar. I’m not sure how many books will be attached to that series but I have the overall arc. I think it’ll be interesting to see what’s beyond West Paragon High.
In other news I’m on final read-thru’s for EVANESCENT! I’m really loving the three point of views (Laken, Cooper, Wesley). The boys really have a way of adding a new dimension to the story(no not like that. OK, so a little like that…)—especially these boys because they’re basically enemies.
Oh, and one more thing! I’m sponsoring a Kindle Fire giveaway. If you’d like a chance to win, here’s the link: WIN A KINDLE FIRE!
Enjoy the teasers and Happy Easter~!
EVANESCENT (The Countenance Trilogy 2)
* (Wesley’s point of view)
“What I mean is,” I pause in the event I feel the need to bury myself further, “I would never even think of another girl or want one. You’re it for me, Laken. Hand to God, you’re all I’ll ever need. I was serious as death when I took that oath the other night, and I’m equally as serious about getting your name indelibly marked over my skin. I want to have a piece of you near me at all times. You’re all I ever think about from eyelids open until I fall asleep, and then I’m lucky enough to have you greet me in my dreams.”
Her smile expands, and she warms the room with it.
“You dream of me?” There’s a twinkle in her eyes as if she’s picking up on the unchaste nature.
“Damn straight,” I say, lowering my lips to hers. “And one day each one of those deranged fantasies is going to come to life.”
ELYSIAN (Celestra Series Book 8) The Final book in the young adult series.
*(Skyla dancing with Marshall at homecoming)
I can’t believe I let Marshall get to me like this. It’s like he’s a walking sex bomb that goes off every time we touch. This is bad, bad, bad. It is so not right to be hot for teacher.
“Hot for teacher?” He grits it through his teeth as if I said the exact words that had the power to reduce him to a primal level. Marshall’s eyes light up like flames, and sex exudes from his person in a viral—visceral—hormonal explosion.
“It’s an expression. It means—”
“I’m hopeful as to what it might mean.” He depresses a sexy as hell smile. “You realize if you dare lie with an Oliver we’ll have to scrap your carnal knowledge and start from the beginning. Why play with boys Skyla when you can run with men?”
“You mean there’s more than one of you?”
“I can multiply if you like.” His eyes widen at the prospect as if it were the first time this strange arrangement came to mind.
“No thanks. I’d be at a loss where to put things.”
Hope you enjoyed~!
