Good Mornin’, Good Mornin’!

Hi all! How many of you have seen “Singing in the Rain”? It’s one of my all-time favorites, and I work up with the “Good Mornin'” song stuck in my head.

Anyway, it’s been a busy week! I had lots of editing going on, even my own. And I’m happy to report that I FINALLY got the new version of Overshadow off to my editor! So, as of right now, it’s on track for an August release.

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! Talk to you next time.

Update!

I’ve been failing at blogging lately. Sorry about that, everyone. It’s been a crazy couple of months, so here’s a few updates:

Overshadow, book two of The Shadow Imperium series, is almost ready to be released! I just sent the proofs back to my editor today. I should have a release date and a cover to share very soon!

I have several other works in progress (WIPs). One of these is the third and last book of The Shadow Imperium series, called Queen of Shadows. I also have a time-travel/steampunk novel that I’m working on. I’m really excited about this one. I’m planning on participating in both sessions of Camp NaNoWriMo in hopes of getting a lot of writing done. If you’re curious about Camp NaNo, you can find it here: http://campnanowrimo.org/

One more update. This has nothing to do with my writing, but I wanted to share it anyway. My husband and I are expecting our first baby in November! So, that’s why I haven’t been around much lately. I’ve been completely exhausted! I’m finally starting to get some energy back, so hopefully you’ll be hearing more from me soon.

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.

 

Six Sentence Sunday

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.

 Growing desperate now, my mind reeled while I tried to figure out a way to escape him. He was infinitely stronger than me and Logan wasn’t around this time to save me. A crackling energy formed around my palms. I didn’t stop to question it. I pushed him once more, putting all my force behind it. He flew across the room and crashed into the opposite wall.

Six Sentence Sunday

Since I finished writing Overshadow, book two in The Shadow Imperium series, yesterday, I thought I would share six sentences from it.

 

Logan was bleeding.

I didn’t know angels could bleed.

Logan was bleeding.

Blood ran freely from a gash on his otherwise unmarred forehead, tracing a crimson river across the plane of his cheekbone before finally dripping from his chin. The sand beneath him was stained red, although it looked off in the night. His dark hair was matted and stiff where the blood had colored it as well.
