The Accidental Assassin Teaser

Thursday, July 18, 2013

So, I'm still alive after my last bad news post. (YAY!) And you guys either have really bad aim or love me enough to only pick smooth rocks, because I don't have any broken bones, either. Thank you for that. ;) And thank you guys for being so understanding.

Since there seems to be a huge thing on Facebook going on right now where authors share 7 lines from their current WIP, I figured I'd just share a teaser there and on my blog. (BTW, if you don't follow my Facebook page, you should. I like to do random giveaways, post tiny teasers, and news there. Okay, I'm just a Facebook addict. I'm not ashamed, but if you want to keep up with more tidbits about Sam and Alex, Ava and Owen, or any of my other characters, you should definitely check it out.)

From The Accidental Assassin:

“So is this how you stand when you shoot?” I tried to not focus on the way his body wrapped around mine.

“Of course not.” He stepped back and I turned to look at him. “I can’t look stupid while I’m out killing people.”

“Gee, thanks.” I reached behind me and tried to put the pistol into the holster. The sweater caught on the gun and I fumbled for a minute before getting it safely put away. Well, safe was a matter of opinion. The gun was loaded, with one in the chamber, and currently pointed down my ass crack.

“You don’t want to be comfortable with them.” Owen was watching me with guarded eyes. “If you’re too comfortable you’ll take them for granted and that’s when you hurt yourself.”

“Or someone else.”

“That too.” Turning away from me he loaded another gun before placing it a shoulder holster for himself. He also attached a knife to his ankle, and stuck a smaller pistol in the small of his back. He pulled a large gun out from the bag and checked the chamber and I felt my eyes widen.

“I can’t wait to see where you put that thing.”

“I bet you would.” He looked around the room for a minute before walking over to the bed. Flipping the mattress over he used a smaller pocket knife to cut a large gash in the fabric.

“There goes our deposit.”


Please don't stone me...

Monday, July 15, 2013

So, you know how I've had some amazing life changing curveballs thrown my way recently? Well, everything has been so downright amazing, I knew, just knew, that there had to be a down side eventually. Thankfully, it's really not that bad.


It's not that bad...

Just a little... delay.

*edges toward safety*

Due to circumstances out of my control, I've had to push the release for The Accidental Assassin back a little bit.

*ducks flying rocks*

I'm sorry!

*peeks out*

I swear I tried everything to get it out in August, it just can't happen.

*ducks again and waves white flag*

It's not long. Really.

*peeks out again*

Okay? October 1st. That's not too long, right?


Just don't hit me with any pointy rocks. I need to be able to see the keyboard. And the computer screen. And the stove, because a girl has to eat.

In all seriousness, I'm really sorry guys. There's just no way around it, and as it is, I may not sleep for a few months. I want you guys to have the books as quickly--but is as perfect shape--as possible.

In the GOOD NEWS department, I will be announcing the release date and blurb for the next Royal book very soon. (Maybe I should have lead with the good news?)

Also, the new paperback of Suddenly Royal with bonus scenes will be in stores November 26th! EEK! I honestly have a hard time imagining it. So, if you see my unconscious form on the floor of a bookstore, please find smelling salts. I will have likely passed out from pure excitement.


Vacation SALE!

Saturday, July 6, 2013

To celebrate a much needed vacation, I've put the ebook version of Flukes on SALE! If you haven't read this one yet, this is a great time to grab it. Flukes is a New Adult Paranormal Romance set in the Bahamas--a fun beach/pool read! *This book contains strong language and mature situations. Not recommended for young audiences.*

Meena has a secret guarded closely by her family—a secret as dangerous as the sea and buried just as deep. When court-appointed community-service workers are assigned to Flukes, the family-owned animal sanctuary, everyone is on high alert. It doesn’t help that Meena finds herself attracted to sexy-as-sin Blake Weathering, one of the new workers. If he wasn’t so distracting, she might be able to land Flukes a much-needed cruise-line contract.

Blake Weathering, the first in his family to attend public school, has developed a tough image. Unfortunately, it lands him in trouble. Now banned from his high school graduation ceremony, getting his diploma is dependent upon a community-service gig cleaning up fish crap. No diploma, no trust fund fortune—and no way to escape his overbearing father. The last thing he needs is the distraction of a mysterious girl with teal eyes who pulls at his heartstrings.

When Blake discovers Meena’s secret, they are both thrown into a desperate search for information about her past. Two worlds pull them in opposite directions, and they will have to fight to hold on to all that really matters.


Have a great week guys! If you try to contact me, I'll get back with you after the 15th.
