The Tuesday Tease + ELYSIAN news

It's here again! The Tuesday Tease!

The final book in the young adult Celestra Series is finished! The cover, however, is not. I thought for sure I'd have it up but hopefully it'll be finalized later today.

I'll be formatting the book and all that fun stuff today so I'll most likely hit publish on Thursday for a Friday release (or sooner). I'll shout it out all over facebook and twitter once I hit publish to give you a heads up. I'm pretty sure Amazon will have it up relatively quick, I'm hoping B&N will as well but I can't make any promises. If my formatter is quick, I'll have the Smashwords copy available for immediate purchase, and then the rest of the platforms as soon as my distributor can get them up.

Can you believe it? We made it! All the way to "the end." I really want to thank each one of you for making this crazy ride so very special by constantly showering me with your support. ELYSIAN marks the close to a chapter in Skyla's life but it also marks the close to a chapter in my life as well. I really lived each of those adventures right alongside her, and I hope you feel as though you did, too. I'm all ready to begin a new chapter and share in Skyla's new adventures and I hope you'll join us as well. Paragon wouldn't be the same without you.

ELYSIAN is looong. It has a part one and a part two all in ONE e-book! So sit back and enjoy the ride. It's bumpy so you might want to buckle up. ;)

As for "the end," I realize it's exciting to see who she ends up with. If you do skip to the last page, I promise you won't understand the true ending. I designed it that way because well, lets face it, it was too fun not to. :) All of the answers are in the text. Except the ones that are not, like stuff that belongs in the Countenance or in Skyla's new series. But I did try to offer closure and answers to everything that had to do with Celestra and I hope you'll be more than pleased with all of the secrets that ELYSIAN reveals. This book was tough to write but it was such a pleasure. And I hope you'll enjoy it, too.

On to the teasers!

ELYSIAN (Celestra Series Book 8) The Final book in the young adult series.
*(Skyla and Brielle) 
“Anyway”—she shakes it off—“I don’t want to talk about my love life. I want to talk about yours. We both know Em’s drawings are never wrong.” She gives an impish grin. “You, Skyla Messenger, are going to do the deed, and I’m dying to know with whom.”
“You and me both.” That’s the God’s honest truth.
“Oh, come on. You must have some preference, some perverted hierarchy of who you’d like to do it with first.”

*(Skyla depressed as hell)
I’m a death sentence to everyone I know and love—in the end I might just break every heart that has ever bothered to love me.

*(Skyla and Marshall)
Skyla.” He ticks his head back a notch, and this catches me off guard. I don’t remember the last time Marshall used my proper name at West. It feels weird, intrusive, and perhaps the teeniest bit arousing.
“May I help you?” It comes out curt, warns him we’re about to tread on algae-riddled rocks, and in a moment one of us will end up with a nasty bruised ego—my money is on the Sector.

*Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your wonderful support. From Skyla, Logan, Gage, and Marshall. XOXO We hope you had the time of your life!

I think my heart just skipped a beat and my chest clenched up at the same time. It's been a hilarious, angsty, swooning, face-palming, WTFing, Nook-throwing (almost) and all-around incredible experience to be part of this journey. I can't wait to devour Elysian. I'm saving my freak-the-freak-out fest for the final book in Skyla's new series later on down the line. I'm so glad you are giving us some more time with her. :) I would say take a breather and have some chocolate, but we all know how much of a whirlwind you are with your projects. Congratulations on another accomplishment!!

Anyways I think I'll go squeeze my jelly thing-a-ma-jig and cry my heart out, or not ;) I'll NEVER tell :D
Thank goodness for the other projects and series, continuing and emerging. Or I'd be SOL!

Woohoo! I am stupidly excited and have been checking your blog every day! I can't wait! :) You are one of those rare, truly gifted authors who's books are just effortless to read and you can't help but fall in love with your characters and become completely immersed in the world you create. I will stop what I am doing for a 15 minute break to read and before I know it, it is two hours later because I couldn't put the book down! I can't wait to read the rest of Skyla's story too and any future works you create :)
