The Tuesday Tease~!

Cheers! It's Tuesday! That means we've survived Monday, and that's always a good thing. 

I'm keeping it short and sweet today!

Book news: The Dragon and the Rose should be to my editor by next week! The book is incredibly looong. Hope you'll find that a good thing!

On to the teaser!

The Dragon and the Rose (Celestra Forever After #2)
(Giselle speaking with Skyla)

"Ellis’s body needs me to help it get relief. This is a terribly frustrating situation for him. I’m causing him a lot of pain. I’ve turned his balls blue, Skyla! He might lose them if I keep up this frigid nonsense. And if we don’t practice, we’ll never have cute little Harrison’s running around one day.”
“You’re quoting him, aren’t you?” I doubt Giselle even knows what the word frigid means. I smell a stoner at the bottom of this blue-balled guilt trip.

Have a great rest of the week!

The Tuesday Tease

It's Tuesday! Hope you're having a good one! The Romance Riot book signing in NYC was awesome! I met the nicest readers, bloggers, writers that you can imagine. A good time was had by all. 

Book news! The Someone to Love series paperbacks are all *half off* now thru November 6th! So if you would like to purchase a paperback—it is the perfect time! Just click on the covers below.

The Dragon and the Rose news! The end has come! Yay! Let the festival of edits begin! *cries a little* This book is just as long as Celestra Forever After, which means it's loooong. But all good things take time and surely this is one of them. I'm not even going to guess a release date until I can hand this off to my editor. But, if you love Celestra, you will not want to miss it!

Also there are apparently AWARDS! out there for which I am nominated. If you'd like to vote for your favs here are the linkys and in parenthesis who, in relation to me was nominated. And if you do happen to vote for me, thank you from the bottom of my little tiny heart! XOXOXOXO

The Dragon and the Rose (Celestra Forever After #2)
* (Chloe speaking to Skyla and Laken)

“Wes said he would give me the world. He can’t wait to start a family with me. Who knew Wesley, your Wesley, Laken, is the man I’m destined to be with forever.”
Laken’s face ashens to match the fog.
“Ignore her. She's a master bullshitter. Chloe wishes it were the truth.” I try to pull Laken’s hand toward me but she carefully retracts. “She’s just trying to get a rise out of you.” I glance up for that damn useless bird. “Holden?” I shout toward the sky.
Laken clears her throat. “Coop is calling me. I’d better go.”
Chloe sinks her hooks into Laken, pinning her wrists to the table. “Is it hard to love two men in secret? You can tell us, you’re among friends. Skyla here understands, hell, she loves three men. And I’m beginning to feel the same, with your Wes and my Gage. Maybe Coop and Wes can work something out and we can do a little swap now and again?” Laken extracts her hand and slaps Chloe across the face with a loud, crisp smack.
“Wow, Laken, that was the best birthday gift you could have given me.” I say stunned by the sheer force evoked in her effort. I bet she enlisted that underutilized Count strength of hers. Who knew that my two best friends would both turn out to be Counts? And my worst enemy is literally blood—one of my own, a Celestra.

Enjoy the week!

Welcome to the Tuesday Tease!

Hello all! It's Romance Riot week!!!! It's going to be a whirlwind for me in New York City—jam-packed full of fun and perhaps a few Broadway shows? I'll be at Romance Riot this Saturday and if you have tickets, please stop by my table. I would love to see you!

Book news! A pre-order is up for Rock Candy Kisses (3:AM Kisses 5) over at iBooks! (Click on the cover!) The release date is set for February 14th, 2015, but should it publish sooner (and there is a slight chance) your book will simply ship earlier than expected. I may ad pre-orders to other sites soon!

Book news! The Dragon and the Rose is crawling to a conclusion. This is a looong book. It will take some time to edit. In all reality an end of November release would be heroic but most likely it might even venture into December. But yay! it's almost here!!! Things just got a whole lot crazier on the island and something huge happens that changes the face of the storyline forever. I'm hoping you'll embrace the change. :) 

On to the teaser! 

The Dragon and the Rose (Celestra Forever After #2)
* (Skyla with Marshall)

I touch my finger to his lips and he presses into it. “What’s the vision?”
“I won’t give it.” Marshall begins to walk into the woods, his body evaporating into the fog as if they’ve been one all along. “Know this, you are already walking through a new fire Ms. Messenger.” Marshall turns and all that’s left of him are those strange glowing eyes. “At the end of this long night, it will be me by your side to comfort you. We are family, Skyla.”

Have a great rest of the week! ~

The Dragon and the Rose book news: Here it is!!! The Dragon and the Rose cover reveal~!!!! (click on the cover to add to Goodreads!)

Yes, it's only slightly different, lol! I love Celestra Forever After's cover and I didn't want to fight it. There are still some color adjustments I'm going to have done but more or less this is it!

Here they are side by side so you can compare and contrast.

 *Here's an extended sneak peek just to make up for last week. Enjoy!

The Dragon and the Rose (Celestra Forever After #2)
* (Skyla with Laken)
“That’s right. Get angry and stay that way.” She pulls me further from the party. “Another thing that has to go away is the Steel Barricade. Or—”
“We’re f*cked.”
“You said it not me. Get angry about that too.” She turns to head back. “Oh, and Skyla? If you’re not angry now just wait until tonight. Coop let me know exactly what it is that Logan is going to show you.”

* (Gage in a fury with Ellis and Giselle)
"It’s true!” Giselle beats me over the back with a pillow but I’m slow to drop Ellis. “Skyla told me she’d support me one hundred percent if this is what I felt I needed to do.”
I turn to find Skyla’s mouth contorting.
“She said her body was crying out for attention!” Skyla drops her head in her hands. “I’m sorry. This was a huge miscommunication.”
“You bet it was.” I toss Ellis back so hard he flies into the window and the glass explodes in a spider web around him.

* (Logan with Michelle Miller)
The rain starts in, quick and angry, pelting Dudley’s oversized manor like a thousand pebbles being dumped from the sky.
“So I’ve been trying to explain to him that it’s all been a big misunderstanding,” Michelle drones on like she has been for the last sixty painful minutes. “Would you mind talking to him? I mean I know he’s not home. He’s out with that little bitch, but as soon as he gets back. I’d really appreciate it.” 

Have a great week! :)
