The Tuesday Tease and the awesome giveaway continues!



It’s here again! Tuesday! Welcome back to the Tuesday tease. I was going to tease another book as well as Elysian but I’m barreling through edits so I think I’ll give it another week. I managed to send most of the book to my editor and betas to get the ball rolling. The book is very loooong, and I don’t think I’ll ever write another one quite this long again but for Celestra, especially since it’s the last one, I’ll let this slide. ;)  And here’s a fun fact about the final book: if you skip ahead to the end to see who Skyla chooses, you won’t understand a darn thing! *holds back a smile*
Was that too wicked of me? Maybe. Or maybe I have far more wicked things in store…

Off to the teasers!  

ELYSIAN (Celestra Series Book 8) The Final book in the young adult series
* (The cheer squad discussing their senior prank)

Nat makes a face. “Those are totally juvenile ideas. We need to do something big like drag a couch over to senior lawn and set it on fire.” Her copper locks bounce with approval at the five-alarm disaster spewing from her lips.
“Enough with the fifth grade high-jinks.” Chloe bites the words out. “We need something far more sophisticated, something fierce—something deadly. I was thinking of a hostage situation.”
Figures. Chloe’s prank involves a medley of her specialties—prisoners and death.
“Listen”—Brielle pushes out a breath—“I’m all for ‘bonding” with you guys, but I’d rather do it outside of the pen. Let’s think legal, and naked boys.”
Brielle always has her priorities straight.

ELYSIAN (Celestra Series Book 8) The Final book in the young adult series
* (Skyla lost in thought)

I glance back and notice that both Logan and Gage are watching me like hawks. The future and all of its secrets get buried by the love those two are emanating in my direction.
I wish it was last year, that I still had Logan on a string, and Gage lying over me like a bulletproof vest—Marshall and all of his sexual musings wrapped around me like a blanket.
Damn I hate the future.

ELYSIAN (Celestra Series Book 8) The Final book in the young adult series
 (Skyla and ???)

“I promise you, everything I have ever done since the day I met you was because I wanted to protect you. I love you so damn much I would cash in every chip in my arsenal to make sure you're safe.” He strokes my cheek with his finger. “I already know you’ll be loved. I just wish it were by me.” 



*Hope you enjoyed! I look forward to introducing you to new characters and new books in the weeks to come. Remember, it's the final week in the giveaway! To win one of 5 awesome prizes, simply enter below!

I can't wait to see who Skyla ends up with. It's been a long time coming for this and I'm so excited we are almost at the finally. As for the new characters can't wait to see what u have come up with. Have a good week.

Alanna M said...

I am so excited!! I've gotten so attached to all the characters. Skyla has a tough decision ahead, even I can't decide who I'd want to be with. Thanks for writing the series!!!

heather peiffer said...

Can't wait to read this book, though if she doesn't choose Gage, I might have a nervous break down!!! #bitingfingers

Just another day in paradise said...

I just want to say that I have never NEEDED the end of a book like I need this one! I was addicted from the Ethereal! Love this series.

Shemarhof said...

I wish this book was out already, but then I'd never accomplish anything I need to get done before our vacation! I'm dying here. I can't wait to see how it "ends" even though it actually doesn't. Skyla and crew move onto adult life, right?

Shemarhof said...

PS-I don't ever think I could skip ahead! It would drive me nuts to not know what happened to begin with.

Celia pino said...

I feel so sorry for skyla cuz she got pick 3 good guys can she just keep all 3 lol it so hard but for me it gage cuz I feel for him seen the beginning

caitlin huddleston said...

I get butterflies reading these teasers!! I CAN NOT wait to see what happens!!

Amy said...

I'm absolutely thrilled when you comment about how long Elysian will be. I am also so glad that you are taking Skyla on a new journey - that makes this ending less bitter and much more sweet! This series holds a special place in my heart, as evidenced by my desire to dive back into Paragon every time we go bowling. Seriously. ;)

Oh, and Ethereal Knights? Loved it!!! You really nailed it with the perfect balance of scenes from Ethereal and new scenes from those deliciously naughty guys' POV. recently read a book from the guy's POV, and I was so disappointed that it was pretty much just a rewrite of the first book. You did not come close to doing that, and I just wanted to throw some kudos and cake pops your way for that! :)

redheads rule said...

Oh my gosh I'm so glad about Elysian could you PLEASE hurry?!?!?Oh and that teacher that gave me an A is now reading your books.

MM2011 said...

Aaaaaahhhhh, waiting is so hard to do! I can't wait to see who Skyla picks but at the same time I can because my heart hurts for the two she doesn't pick - I know how much they all love her :-( I am way too wrapped up in this LOL ;-)

Brandi Lindsay said...

Love, love, love Paragon and all of its residents. Cant wait for #8!! But, to jump the gun, when can we look forward to the Adult Series?? Anytime this year?? And, thanks for letting us into your world, my sis thinks 8 books are just too many, but I told her you get hooked fast, that's what great authors can do, just like you A. Moore, your a genius!! <3 B.

Tijana Perkins said...

Was Copper( from ephemeral) mentioned in toxic part 1 or 2. its driving me crazy that I cant remember.

Addison Moore said...

kcasanova88 - I can't wait to spill all of Paragon's secrets one last time. It will be tricky to please everyone but I'm hoping you'll like the end. This was meant from the beginning.

Alanna M - Oh I'm thrilled you're attached! I feel like I live on Paragon (which secretly I do), so I'm super happy to see you're invested. :)

heather peiffer - gah! No breakdowns Heather, lol! And Gage hearts you for that. ;)



Addison Moore said...

Just another day in paradise - Wow! I cannot thank you enough for that. I hope the end will be all that you're hoping it'll be. ;)

Shemarhof - I wish it were out, too! lol! And yes, more of Skyla in her New Adult series. It will be steamier and well, different. And I hope no one skips!!! TY for not skipping!!!

Celia pino - Yes, Gage would love it if he ended up with her, too. He's a sweetheart who would take very good care of her—that's for sure!

Addison Moore said...

skyla - Aww, that's sweet. I hope you'll crush on ELYSIAN, it's our last spin on Paragon as we know it. :)

caitlin huddleston - I love that you get butterflies. I think that so appropriate. ;) Hugs for that.

Addison Moore said...

Amy - I love that you think of Paragon when you go bowling!!! That warms my heart. :) And yes, ELYSIAN is looong. That's why edits are sort of a bear. But I do think its worth it. This way Skyla can say everything she needs to before saying goodbye to high school for good. And I'm so glad you liked EK! I have such crushes on those boyz. It was way too fun to write.

Addison Moore said...

redheads rule - Yes!! I'm trying so hard, lol. I wish I could edit faster but sadly my pace remains consistent. This is a long book which means more work for me, my edit and betas. But ultimately it lets us linger on the island just a little bit longer. I hope that makes up for the wait! And I'm floored that your teacher is now reading the books! Please tell him/her that I said hello and happy reading! That is so awesome! :)

MM2011 - I know. Two people are going to be hurting. It won't be easy for them or Skyla. But I'm glad you're wrapped up in the books, lol! Thank you for that!

Brandi Lindsay - Yes! I've mentally jumped the gun myself and have already played out all the scenes with the new series. To me its like having dessert after having a very long meal! (It's steamy) I know Skyla will have a good time. ;) I'm not sure when that one will release but since I won't be writing crazy long books anymore after Celestra I'm hoping to fit it into my schedule this year.

Tijana Perkins - Yes, I'm pretty sure Coop was in both. He was in some of the war scenes. I hope that helps! And I can't wait to get ENTROPY to you!

Holly Brooks said...

cant wait for elysian hope she ends up with gage

Carin McDonough said...

I can't wait for book 8 as I just adore this series! I am busy re-reading the series while I wait :) I love all three guys, Gage is definitely my favourite but I think I am going to be gutted no matter what way it goes lol. I am so happy that Elysian is going to be long and we get to absorb ourselves in Paragon for a bit longer and I am thrilled to hear there will be a follow on series! Thank you for you wonderful books that create a perfect little escape :)

neverland's tink said...

i'm slowly dying waiting for the last book... i just adore this series! i've never read anything like it before! i love all three guys but Logan had me from the very beginning (there was a moment where i kind of hated him but i love him again :P) !! i so happy knowing that its going to be a long book (hopefully it will last longer than a day for me to read it lol) and im excited to hear there is going to be more of skyla later on! Thank You for creating such amazing and magical books :P

Margie Sims said...

i love the teasers they are the greatest help while i'm trying to patiently wait for the last celestra book . i have all the others in by nook slelf and even had to buy the knight pov book 2 times (goodreads & nook finally) SO please try to rush this final conclusion book. You wrote them so well its like I'm waiting to find out whats happening to my family or closest friend and yes even some one you really love to hate! I'm also wanting to follow and start collecting Skyla's new grown up stories. I guess this is just a long way around to say I love story ideas and magical writing style! Can't wait to get the one!!!

nida said...

AAAHHHH I started this series two weeks ago AND THERE IS MORE!! Hurry! ! My heart cant take it!!!!!! I hope she ends up with Logan! !!!! Orr Marshall!!

Addison Moore said...

Holly Brooks - I can't wait to share the end~! And Gage hopes he ends up with her, too! ;)

Carin McDonough - Oh! I SO love and appreciate that you're reading it again! That makes my day. I hope you find the same magic in it the second time around!

neverland's tink - (Love your name :) I'm so happy that you're having fun with the series! I can't wait to bring you the final booooook (its longish) and then of course take you to Skyla's new world after that.

Margie Sims - You made me so happy and have humbled me all at the same time when you said you thought of them like family. I can't thank you enough for that! *edits faster* I hope you'll like the end!

nida - Wow, you are a fast reader! I hope you have fun with the last book. I'm really trying my hardest to push it out the door, sooner than later. Can't wait to take yo back to Paragon!

Racheliswicked said...

I wrote this super awesome comment and then there was an error... :p Hahaha Not that you aren't worth the effort, but I am pooped!

In summary: YOU ARE THE BEST WRITER EVER! Thanks for filling my days with literary bliss. *sigh*

Tiffany Garris said...

OMG I cannot wait for Elysian! When are you shooting for it to be out? I just got my Nook fixed so I am currently reading Ethereal Knights! I love it so far but I am not much into it. I cannot wait to get a better look inside their minds! Addison I will say it again you are Freaking AMAZING! (ps we finally moved so no more flooding and less damage from hurricanes since we moved about 10 miles further from the beach

Addison Moore said...

Racheliswicked - You are SOOOO awesome and sweet to write a single word about me. Thank you for your kind words. You made me smile real big. :)

namaah - I reallllly hope you like the way it all goes down. It really was planned that way from the beginning.

amber whitehead - You're so welcome! Thank you for reading!

Jessica Souliere - I have a name but I haven't solidified it yet. I'm hoping to get the new book out later this year. I hope that helps, sorry!

Tiffany Garris - Yay for moving!!! I hope you stay dry for many years to come! I hope you enjoy the rest of EK. Please come back and share your thoughts! Sorry if the boys are too naughty for you! lol!

CoryK said...

Addison,
Was flipping through the channels on the TV, and I came across a music video ("Now" by Paramore). It SOOO makes me think what the faction war battles look like! I wonder if the group is a fan??? I just love your books! Keep them coming!
