Today, I spent the day working on editing Chosen. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I will have the manuscript ready to go out to my Beta readers. Once that is done then I’ll switch gears and reach out to EBook Launch for cover design. I have a pretty good idea as to how I want the cover to look and I’m really excited to see what they do with my ideas. I’m thinking that Chosen should be available by the end of February and will keep you posted. I plan to make it available for pre-order on Amazon as soon as the cover has been completed and I have set the firm release date.
As for Kindred, I’m in the process of having an editor review Kindred and hope to re-release it by the end of January and at that time it will be available in print copy.
Here is a teaser for you of Chapter 1:
I wake with a start, and I’m drenched in sweat. Not wanting to wake up Alaric, I quietly crawl out of bed and make my way to the terrace to cool my heated skin. The moon is a waxing moon. It’s but a sliver in the midnight sky, allowing the stars to pop out dramatically, as she keeps me company tonight. I stand naked to the celestial body in more ways than one.
My nocturnal wanderings plague me. It’s been a month since I dream walked during sleep. Astral projection seems like such a mouthful. The last time, Alaric followed me to my first meeting with my mother, Danu. I know he’s exhausted, or he would have sensed my leaving this evening. Things have been really crazy since arriving here in the Otherworld, and with everything that has happened recently, it’s no wonder that lately I’ve been preoccupied with the dark prince’s court. That may explain my unexpected visit to his domain this evening. To say that it troubles me is an understatement. Was it my subconscious that directed me to dream walk to Tarron’s court? Or was it something more sinister? Was dark majic at work tonight?
No matter the cause, once there, my curiosity was peaked, and I decided to have a look around. I really didn’t want to be seen or noticed in any way once I realized where I had ended up. For the most part, I was able to wander the grounds unnoticed, but as soon as I came upon Tarron, he almost immediately sensed my ghostly presence. He was in the company of a beautiful, young female in a sitting room, and if I had to guess, he was feeding from her. It appeared to be an incredibly intimate moment and from her moans and the way she was pressed against him I could tell that she was very much enjoying the act. I shake my head as if to clear the image burned into my memory. I can’t quite shake the fact that the dark prince sensed that I was there. He swung his gaze from the young woman he was feasting on and directed his glowing green-eyed gaze right toward me. He didn’t seem at all surprised that I was there as he said, “Well, Hello Sunshine.” His grin was full of wicked intent, and it was enough to send me back to my sleeping form, his mocking countenance haunting me.
