Six Sentence Sunday

Here’s another six sentences from Foreshadow!

He let go, but he didn’t move away. “Now tell me, Raena. What are you doing out here in the middle of the night?” He eyed me appraisingly. “Looking quite appealing in your lovely pajamas, I might add.”

My face burned, and I felt thankful the trees were hiding the moon.

 

Imagine discovering that your boyfriend was out to kill you—and that the annoying boy from school was your guardian angel.

 

Rae Davenport has already lost her mother. The only thing keeping her sane is her new boyfriend, Andrei—that is, until she finds out that he wants to kill her. Andrei is a devil, and he wants to use Rae as a sacrifice to get back into Heaven. The only one who can save her is Logan, her guardian angel. He’s only annoyed her in the past, but now he will be her savior.

It’s that time again: Six Sentence Sunday! Here’s six sentences from Foreshadow:

“You deserve so much better.”

“Oh, and are you going to be the one to treat me better? Are you saying you could treat me how I deserve to be treated?” I retorted.

He fell silent. His emerald eyes warmed as they bored into mine. “I could,” he whispered.

Six Sentence Sunday

Here’s six sentences from Foreshadow, available now:

Nothing had been right since I left Vegas. Nothing had been right since my mother had died.

I cut that thought off. It still hurt too much to think about her. I missed her, yet I blamed her. If she hadn’t died, I wouldn’t be stuck here, in a place I didn’t like, with people I didn’t like.

It’s Official! Foreshadow is Now a Bestseller!

Okay, so Foreshadow hasn’t quite hit bestseller status overall…yet. But, imagine my surprise, when I was checking its rankings on Amazon and found out that it is ranked number one in the devils category! It hasn’t quite gotten to number one overall, or even the top 100, but it will get there someday. I’m very excited about its rankings, and I’d really like to thank everyone who has bought/read/reviewed/liked/tagged it–on Amazon and otherwise. You guys are amazing!

In other news, I’m planning a big giveaway next month, likely for Valentine’s Day. Stayed tuned!

Six Sentence Sunday

Here’s six sentences from Foreshadow, book one of The Shadow Imperium series!

I found myself running again, but the setting had changed. I wasn’t at the beach this time. I stood in a long hallway, and it seemed familiar for some reason.
The fog hung low in the hall, surrounding me. Fog inside a building? It didn’t make sense, but in horror, I watched as it pulled at my clothes, twisting around my legs.

Want more? Check back next Sunday for another six sentences!

Foreshadow is available now from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and the Astraea Press website!

Update!

Sorry I’ve been AWOL lately, everyone! Things have been CRAZY for me! My husband and I moved–twice. Why twice? We moved because he got a new job two hours away from where we were living. The commute was not fun. So we stayed with family until we were able to move into our new house.

I’ve also been really sick lately. For those of you who don’t know, I have a nervous system disorder that keeps me from doing…well, much of anything most days.

Now, the news you’ve all been waiting for–FORESHADOW update! It’s still in the editing process, but should be out soon. I approved the cover proof the other day, so I should have it soon to share with everyone. As soon as I have a release date, I will let everyone know. I’ll tell you one thing, though: there will be a giveaway to celebrate its release!

In other writing news, I’m about 2/3rds of the way done with OVERSHADOW, the sequel to FORESHADOW. I have other projects I’m also attempting to work on, that are in various stages of completion.

I also have a website now! Check it out: https://breaessex.com/ You can also email me now at brea@breaessex.com.

That’s all the news for now! I’m planning to be back next week with Why I Love Wednesdays and Six Sentence Sunday, so stay tuned!

Six Sentence Sunday

Here’s another six from FORESHADOW, book one of The Shadow Imperium! How would you like to have Rae’s crazy nightmares?

The fog thickened around me and began to coalesce. I could hear laughter echoing from within the fog. It was horrifying. I couldn’t get past whatever was forming behind me. I threw my hands over my head in a futile attempt to protect myself and crouched down, sobbing hysterically. I was expecting the worst, but praying for a miracle . . .

Six Sentence Sunday

             I had no idea where Logan had gotten his skill with swords. Maybe it was just a natural outcome of his training in self-defense. His two swords moved as if they were two halves of the same weapon and that weapon was an extension of him.
            The fight moved so quickly I could barely see what was happening. One of the devils’ swords caught one of Logan’s weapons. The flats of the blades slid across each other and Logan’s wrist twisted, his sword clattering to the floor.

Six Sentence Sunday

Here’s another six sentences from FORESHADOW, book one of the Shadow Imperium series:

            “Can anyone tell me something about Zoroastrianism?” he asked.
            Tristan, sitting on the other side of me, raised his hand. When Mr. Villar pointed at him, he answered, “They worship a Creator called Ahura Mazda.”
            “Hey, I’m down with Zoroastrianism—I could worship my car!” Logan cut in with a laugh.
            “Ahura Mazda is not the same as your car,” I shot back, rolling my eyes.
            “Who do you think the car was named after?” he asked sarcastically.
