Prologue Beginning

Since I’m working on Blood Ties, the second book in the Blood Promise series, I’m letting you guys see my writing process and get sneak peeks of the first paragraphs of each chapter along with the first paragraphs of Blood Promise. Each week, I’ll put up a new chapter beginning. So, here goes…the first paragraph for the Prologue of Blood Ties and the first chapter of Blood Promise. #WIP #Blood Ties #Blood Promise

 

Prologue

The large wolf quietly stole through the small house, scenting the air to find his latest victim. It didn’t take long—he just followed the scent of sex and booze. At least he got some action before he dies tonight.

 

Ooohhh…who’s dying tonight??? How do you like that? Murder on the very first page!

 

And, the beginning of Ch.1, Blood Promise. If you’d like to get your hands on Blood Promise, you can at Amazon, Google Play, Apple, B&N, Kobo, Scribd, 24 Symbols, Inktera, and Playster.

 

Chapter 1

Under the rising sun in Grant Park, I bent down into a calf stretch, reminding me once again I’d forgotten to put underwear on. I’d gotten to bed just a few hours earlier after spending a night out with Mia at a new club, Z’s, only to wake up after falling from my bed onto the floor, terror seizing my breath while blood rushed through my ears and my heart galloped out of my chest. It’d taken a few heart-stopping minutes to realize it’d only been a nightmare. I couldn’t remember much other than the primal fear of being chased by a beast with a desire to rip out my throat as I screamed for my life, and then relief at being saved by a man in black. It’d left me unsettled enough I couldn’t go back to sleep, so here I was. At six in the morning. Apparently trying to run off my dream.

 

 

Along Came A Spider…And A Book!

A few days ago, Thing 3 was driving my car and Thing 4 was with her. Like most people (me included), Thing 3 has a major case of arachniphobia. Unlike me, however, she didn’t think to keep her cool while she was driving when a tiny, little white spider landed on the steering wheel.

Chaos ensued.

Thing 4 tried to get the spider, while Thing 3 screamed, freaked out, jerked the wheel and slammed the front passenger tire into the curb, causing the rear of the car to slide and slam into the curb again.Luckily, she jerked the wheel to the right rather than the left which would’ve put her into oncoming traffic. Both girls were fine though a bit shaken.

Three holes were ripped in the front tire, while the rear tire had two almost-holes and a deep scratch. Both rims were scratched up but otherwise okay.

The cost? About $250…because of a spider. A tiny, little white spider.

So what does a spider have to do with a book? Well, read Blood Promise and you’ll get pulled into the intricate web of the world of Tora…and you may never want to leave. (Cue evil laugh, hahahahaha.)  If you like your books sexy and steamy, a little dark with a dash of horror thrown in, then hopefully you’ll love Blood Promise.  “What a fantastic book, Great story line, Hope Tora’s adventures continue, Just loved Ryk, hope he turns out to be Tora’s hero.” – reader 5-star review.

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.

Blood Promise is available pretty much everywhere, including Amazon, Apple, Nook, Kobo, Scribd, 24 Symbols,Inkera, Playster, and Google Play.

You can also get the first three chapters at Instafreebie if you’d like a sample first before you buy.

Have you been pulled into the web yet? You know you want to. Just let go, relax, and read….

 

 

Beware The Bread-Wielding Gunman

True story…

My mother was recently getting her hair done–it was just her and the salon owner in the building–and in came a man wielding a machine gun, telling them this was a robbery and he was going to kill them!  Needless to say, my mother was extremely frightened and was just sure her life was over.

Then, she got a good look at the gun…

The guy was holding a loaf of bread–a long baguette–like a machine gun!

The shop owner yelled at the guy to get out of her shop, and he immediately left!

Can you believe that? My mother was held up by a guy with a freakin’ loaf of bread!  Luckily, it was only a loaf of bread and not a real gun.

Needless to say, this story is somehow going to end up in one of my books, LOL.

 

 

Yard Sale Days

Today we’re having a yard sale, and I’m wondering…should I put my business cards out too? Tell people I’m also a Tarot card reader? Thing 3 thought no…”It’s a yard sale, mom. No. Just…no.”

-le sigh-

What do you think?

Thank You KU Reader!

I tried something new…putting Blood Promise on Kindle Unlimited. I’m not sure if I’m going to keep it there, though. After having the book there for over a month, I’ve finally had someone read the Whole Book.

It took an entire month for this to happen. I made more sales than that when I went wide, which I was starting to sell more on Apple.

If you have Kindle Unlimited, great! Read Blood Promise for free! If you don’t have KU, you can still get it from Amazon.
