Happy Thanksgiving! Blood Promise Is On Sale!

Today is a day to not only spend time with loved ones, but to also reflect on what you’re thankful for. There’s so much I’m thankful for this year, including YOU, my readers! I write not just for my own enjoyment, but for yours as well and receiving affirmation that you actually like what I write is nothing short of amazing.

After you’ve stuffed yourself silly and are winding down, how about reading a good book? Blood Promise is on sale for $1.99, right now through Amazon. Once it goes on sale through other channels, I’ll let you know!

With a murderous beast on her heels and a conniving daemon who wants to use her for his own means, Tora Hayden’s main objective is to keep herself and those she cares about alive.

Name That Character!

Right now I’m writing Blood Ties, the second book in the Blood Promise series. It wasn’t until recently that I realized I needed to name a certain character. The thought hadn’t occurred to me when I wrote the scene, since he  gets murdered on the first page. However, he will be referred to later in the book, so I really need to name him.

That’s where you guys come in. Want to get in on naming one of my characters? It’s simple, really. All you have to do are two steps:

  1. Sign up for my newsletter and become an Insider. Becoming an Insider also gives you access to the entire Prologue, not just the first paragraph.
  2. After signing up for my newsletter, send me an email with ‘Name’ in the Subject to tonyakerrigan@comcast.net and tell me what you think this character’s name should be and why. At the end of January, I’ll compile the list of names and have my Insiders vote on the one they like the best.

In other news, Blood Promise goes on sale on November 23rd and 24th for $1.99!

Let The Darkness Begin

In a previous post I mentioned my current WIP Blood Ties and how Tora would be led down a dark path by the bad guy. Well, guess what? It’s not just the bad guy that’s going to be leading her down that path but someone she knows and actually likes. Someone who forces her to make a choice…kill or be killed. The victim is someone she put in the position he’s currently in..so what will she do? Kill him to save her life, be the martyr and let herself die, or maybe there’s a third choice in there…a third choice that’s no better than the other two but a choice that might let her live to see another day and possibly end up saving the life of the victim too.

Hmmm…..choices, choices.

If you’d like to get your mitts on Book 1, Blood Promise, it’s available at Amazon, Apple, B&N, Google, and more and has received some favorable reviews.

Chapter 2 First Paragraphs

So here we are, at Chapter 2 in my #WIP Blood Ties. Tora is on her way back home from Odin’s place in Valhalla. If only I could actually travel like her. #amwriting

Every atom in my body seemed to stretch and squeeze through a tube of space and time. I still wasn’t used to teleporting, and it was a bit disorienting as my cells unscrambled and came back together. When my feet touched the floor, the darkness receded to the morning light and the library came into focus.

“Well, look who’s back,” Kaige said as I materialized in front of him. Coffee cup in one hand, newspaper in the other, he sat on the leather sofa in only his pajama pants. “I didn’t think Odin would’ve let you leave so soon.”

My eyes roamed, appreciating the lines of his body and his dark wavy hair that fell past the shoulders, framing a rugged jaw that currently held yesterday’s stubble.

After being stretched like a rubber band, I tried to compact myself by squatting down and squeezing my knees to my chest. “I convinced him to let the Valkyrie come here to train.”

His brow rose. “Really? Where?”

Trying to keep a straight face, I said, “Ryk’s.”

Kaige laughed. “I hope you talked to him first.”

“Nope. He doesn’t have a clue.”

 

Hmm…I wonder what Ryk will think about having a bunch of Valkyrie descending on his property? What do you think?

So, on to Chapter 3 of Blood Promise.

I turned my head to the left and casually tucked my hair behind my ear. Glancing over my shoulder, I saw him.

Ryk stood a ways back at the corner edge of Hershey’s.

So he is stalking me. Once I got to the salon, I sauntered to the gleaming glass French doors and took hold of the brass handle. Making eye contact with him, I blew him a kiss.

His lips quirked up.

“See ya later alligator,” I whispered.

His smile widened in response, and he whipped out his phone.

As I pulled the door open, a tinkling chime signaled my entrance. A couple steps in, my phone beeped a text. When I looked at the display, my heart stopped; it was from Ryk. Swallowing hard, I opened the text.

In a while crocodile, it read.

Holy shit. Not only did he have a sense of humor, but either he was exceptional at lip reading or he had bat ears. Bat ears, I bet.

 

This is one of my fav scenes showing Ryk’s humor and the easy way he flirts. 🙂  And I bet you’re wondering…considering his bat ears, maybe he’ll already know about Tora’s plans to use his place as a training compound before she gets to ask…or more like tell him? I guess you’ll have to wait until Blood Ties comes out to know! (cue evil laugh here)

Chapter 1 Beginning/First Paragraphs

So…I’ve been bad. I haven’t kept up on this like I should have. While you guys have been patiently waiting for my next chapter update, I’ve been doing…other things. So, without further ado, the beginning of Chapter 1 Blood Ties. Mind you, this is a #WIP so don’t hold your breath that it will stay the same when the finished book comes out.

“This has got to be your room,” I said to Odin while my eyes traveled about the opulent room layered in gold and jewels. He simply gave a slight smile.

A stunning gold chaise was against a red and gold-swirled wall with a luxurious gold canopy draped above. My eyes were drawn across the room to an intricately carved oak and cherry table with matching chairs for four. I went over and knelt down to inspect one of the table legs. My fingers brushed the wood as I studied the scenes depicting naked men thrusting swords into each other as naked women cried out in woe, while a large serpent wove about in between the men and women; it was horrific yet hauntingly beautiful at the same time.

“Where did you find this?” I asked.

“I had it commissioned. Unfortunately, four supposedly brilliantly talented craftsmen had to die while attempting to create it.”

Eyes wide, I looked at him while my heart quickened in fear. “Had to die? Why?”

“Because their work wasn’t on par with what I considered brilliantly talented. However, as you can see for yourself,” he nodded to the table, “the fifth one lived.”

 

Boy, Odin sure is a ruthless hard ass, isn’t he? Can you imagine working for a man like that? Your choices are to either do amazing work or die.

 

Now, the beginning of Ch. 2 of Blood Promise.

Yawning hugely, I rubbed my hand over my eyes and tried to pay attention. Mr. Snyder droned on and on about the Norns in Norse lore and the Fates of Greek mythology.

Somnolence threatened to overtake me. I sat up straighter and eyeballed the doodles in my notebook, proof my mind was not in the same place as my body. Glancing at the clock, I groaned. Only forty minutes had passed…I still had another fifty minutes to go. I’d just copy off Mia’s notes after school. I turned to her and scowled. How did she manage to look so fresh and perky? Obviously, she hadn’t been woken up by strange dreams.

 

So, there you have it. Funny how Ch.2 in Blood Promise reflects Norse mythology in Ch.1 of Blood Ties. And no, I hadn’t planned it that way.
