I’m in a good place right now. My direction for this latest project has been re-invigorated, and I’m writing like crazy. For all your patience and kind words, I not only thank you, but I’ll share a chapter with you. Take a gander.Read More
Okay, okay. I know, I know.
I've set dates before and they haven't come to fruition. But who can blame me? I've had so many different ideas circulating the past few months that I haven't even taken a breath long enough to get them down on paper.
But this one will stick.
August 15th. It may seem like such a random date to you, but to me, it's meant way much more than I've ever verbalized. If it wasn't for this date, my two ever-interesting characters, Brandon Greene and Natalie Chandler may not have ever met. So while choosing a release date feels as important to me as picking a day to get married, I won't dally any longer.
On August 15, 2013, Skin Like Dawn will be released to the masses. It's a long overdue (six years, actually) addition to my very first published novel, When You Come to Me. She's been lonely for the past six years, with a cliffhanger waiting to be concluded.
And speaking of conclusions...
I've decided to turn this whole saga into a trilogy...but more on that later :)
Rest your little souls, people. August 15th will be here before you know it. I can't wait to share it with the world.
In the interim, enjoy some novel lines here!
She was shivering now. She absurdly convinced herself that she’d never felt like this. That it wouldn’t go away. That something deep inside was propelling her toward a disastrous fate, a blind, ill-lit plight of her own device. Still, she had the audacity to lean down to kiss her husband’s forehead, slowly, sensually, desperately. She closed her eyes. Tears brimmed them. She felt lightheaded. He stirred a little, murmured something, then rolled over.
He knew she was there.
She was in love, even then - but the inevitable was a bright-white infectious light, a great big wave of lunacy, pulling her downward, slicing through the undertow.
She raised herself from the bed and got dressed quickly.
She crept out of the bedroom, and the moonlight cast shame against her.
