HAPPY EASTER

HAPPY EASTER FRIENDS!


I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Easter. I enjoyed a relaxing day of sleeping in and then celebrating with my friend Cathleen and her son, Lucas. We cooked ham, creamed corn, yams, and croissants. After we recovered from a food coma we dyed some eggs and had a little Easter egg hunt in the backyard. Right now we're ending the night with some cupcakes, wine, and a movie! I'd say that was a pretty productive day in my book!

TEASER TUESDAY

I know I had said that in the next few weeks I was going to start introducing the characters to you all. But I really wanted to make sure they were ready for their grand appearance so maybe next week one of them will show up? A certain fiery red head has been wanting to show her face around here for a while now!

Anyway, I have another little excerpt for you from Promise Me This. I've decided to heat things up just a little and show off one of my favorite scenes. Charlie is being her sassy self and Jhett is nothing but smoldering moves in return.

I threw my feet back down on the floor and ran out the bedroom door into the hall. “How come I get the twin bed and you get the deluxe luxury size bed?” My accent was thick tonight, surprising even myself when I heard it. I threw my hip out with my hand resting just at my waist.
Jhett stopped where he stood in front of the fridge, starring at me with wide eyes. “Well we can switch rooms if you want….” His voice was soft, just low enough that I could barely hear him.
I huffed. “Quit acting like a gentleman and just tell me its okay to stay with you.” I shouted at him, frustration lingering in my voice.
Jhett continued to stare, making my stomach churn with instant regret. I had pushed too far. “You know what? You really know how to drive me crazy.” He replied as he closed the gap between us, backing me up against the hallway wall. Gathering both my wrists in one hand above my head, he pressed them into the hard wall behind me. “Maybe I should get your riled up more often. I like it when your accent comes through like that.” His breath was warm as he spoke into my ear. All my emotions from earlier flowed out of my body with his touch, my mind only focusing on him.

“It’s not polite to say stuff like that to your roommate.” I arched my back against the wall, attempting to get as close to him as possible.

A stifled laugh came from Jhett, who was holding me hostage with little effort. “Charlie, I think we passed roommates a while ago.” He gave me one quick tease of a kiss on my lips. Just as I was about to give in, he pulled away.
“Then what are we?” It was a question I needed answered even though I didn’t mean to ask it. It just came out as the thought ran through my mind.

HMMM. What are they is such a hard question to answer! What comes next in the fun part though. I'll warn you though, you'll most likely need a fan to get through it!

TEASER TUESDAY

Here's to my very first TEASER TUESDAY! I'm so amped to share this with you all because I love this whole scene so much. It's really when you first get a good glimpse at Jhett and his sarcasm and there are times where I feel as frustrated as Charlie is with him!

I walked a few more steps until the feeling of being watched overwhelmed me. “WHAT?” I whirled around ready to strike. What was this guys problem?

He was leaning against a brick wall that led into a small alley I was hoping he wouldn’t pull me into. One leg was crossed in front of the other, resting his toe on the ground. He tilted his head and gave me the same, quirky, smirk that was already growing on me. “Oh by all means, keep going.” He teased.

“Fine. I will.” I didn’t have to put up with this from some guy I didn’t even know. Why did Cameron even hang out with these people? None of them had any manners. Slow footsteps interrupted my internal rant.

“But if you’re going to walk the wrong way, at least let me follow you in case the Goblin King decides to come out and take you back to his Labyrinth” He chuckled, obviously amused by his not so witty sense of humor.

TITLE REVEAL

I've been keeping it in for a while, but I feel like today is the day I want to share it all with out. A select few people have known for a while what the title to my novel is going to be and I'm pleased to say they loved it just as much as me.

When I started writing, I had only the first scene in my head and I knew the two main characters. That was it. The story really took on a life of its own after that but I struggled with finding a title that fit. Believe me when I say I had a list at least twenty possibly titles long. I looked at it almost every day. People told me that it would just come to me, and I admit, I kind of didn't believe them. Then it happened and it clicked with me. That being said, I hope you feel the same.

Ready......Wait for it....

PROMISE ME THIS

 There you have it. What do you think? I've also added it to Goodreads and have contacted them about starting my author page. I told you, this week is full of big and exciting things. Now maybe I can get my blurb together for it.

EXCITING NEW THINGS TO COME

So, welcome everyone! This will be the awkward first post on the blog that I never know what exactly to say. So, I'll just say what has been on my heart lately.

I want to say a big thank you. You may not understand how much I truly think about all the support I have received since the beginning of this year when I announced I would be writing my first novel.  Honestly, I thought people may be excited, but I never dreamed I would have people this excited for me. I won't forget when I finally posted about it on Facebook and the comments that you all left made me tear up. I know I'm an emotional person to begin with, but thank you, from the bottom of my heart for that day. Thank you for your words because when I think I can't or shouldn't be doing this anymore, I think about the how I would be letting everyone who has believed in me from the beginning down.

If I even tried to mention every single person who has helped me get to where I am today, I would be writing an additional novel of acknowledgments. And those will come soon! I've already started to compile my list. This is just a general thank you. You all should know who you are because I try and tell each one of you how I feel often. My gratitude can not extend far enough to reach out and touch so many of you, some of you who I've yet to met in person, who have pushed me to where I am.

So, if I haven't said thank you to you lately....here it is.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.
