It’s Tuesday~! Welcome back to the teasers!
I’m at the finish line with ELYSIAN. Finally, right? Then the real fun begins with edits. It’s turning out to be a pretty good size book, much like VEX and EXPEL.
I’m having such a hard time saying goodbye to the storylines—to the world of Celestra as I’ve come to know it. It feels like a boulder is lying on my back as I pen every word. My biggest comfort is knowing that Skyla gets to move on in her New Adult series, where she is no longer in high school and her love life has narrowed itself down to one suitor. I think it will be so exciting to explore this new world, especially after the long journey it took her to get there. I can’t wait to share more on this with you in the very near future, including the new series title, cover reveal, and format of the books. It’s all going to be different but very familiar at the same time. And did I mention ~steamy? Yeah. We go there.
As for EVANESCENT the edits are rolling in! My editor and betas are loving the alternate POVs. (POV = Point of view). In EPHEMERAL, it was all Laken, all the time, but in EVANESCENT it’s Laken, Cooper, then Wesley. I had the best time crawling into the minds of those boys. I think they really added a new dimension to the trilogy and I’ll continue the triple POV in the final book due out later this year. I’m excited!
And, in odd but true news, SOMEONE TO LOVE is featured in this months issue of Cosmo, which I think is really kind of fun. So, to the kind folks over at Cosmopolitan, thank you! And in case anyone missed it, I have SOMEONE TO LOVE extras as a tab up above (on my blog for those of you reading the teasers on Facebook *waves*). Feel free to enjoy the character interview with Kendall and Cruise as well as a sneak peak into SOMEONE LIKE YOU. (The story of Ally and Morgan).
Onto the teasers!
EVANESCENT (The Countenance Trilogy 2)
(Cooper and Wes at a party)
*Wesley’s point of view
“So who did this to you, man?” Coop slaps me gently on the back as he examines the stitches running up the side of my face.
“Logan and Gage Oliver.” Their names roll off my tongue, rough and hostile, like drilling a jackhammer.
“You sure they’re not from Rycroft?” Coop ticks his head back. His jaw redefines itself as if he’s good and pissed on my behalf.
I know Coop well enough to realize what he’s up to. He’s memorizing their names, running it through the super computer that functions as his memory bank to see if he recognizes them. We used to be friends Coop and I. Good ones.
ELYSIAN (Celestra Series Book 8) The Final book in the young adult series.
*(Skyla with Chloe and Demetri at his estate)
“Skyla,” her voice rasps low.
I look over at her carful, slow, in the event she breaks down and tries to soften my heart with her “please save me” shenanigans.
Her eyes plead with me. Her jaw clenches as she pulls her lips into a razor sharp line. Chloe Bishop is asking for help the only way she knows how, but I turn and run the hell downstairs.
“Mercy can hold powerful rewards, Skyla,” Demetri calls after me.
“So can justice!” I fire back.
*Hope you enjoyed!
