Hello once again, readers!!!
Guess what?! Everlost (Night Watchmen, #3) is with the editor and now available for PRE-ORDER!!!
I know… I can barely contain myself either!!!
Release Date: May 31st, 2015
One truth will unravel them all.
Faye Middleton thought the worst had come to pass the night she and her friends barely escaped from Ethryeal City and the clutches of the evil Priestess Clara. Officially shunned from the Coven, Faye is forced to lay low in order to come up with a plan to bring Clara down.
At Jaxen’s childhood manor, they were supposed to be safe from any outside issues, and they were… until his long-lost mother shows up. Determined to win back what she lost so long ago, Evangeline reveals a secret that could shatter their beliefs, or be their saving grace.
Now, with two Covens searching for Faye, they must find a way to start over. With the help of the Rebellion, they begin the arduous task of forming their own army. However, the choices they are faced with leave them questioning everything they’ve ever known.
Now, I just need to take a huge deep breath before I jump back into book four in the Night Watchmen Series. So exciting!!!
Hello once again, readers!!!
I’ve been super-cali-awfully-busy working on my own edits and clean-up on Everlost before it’s placed in the hands of my editor. So busy in fact, that I’m almost 75% done.
Can I get a woot!
A high-five, maybe?
Just kidding. I’ve set the date with the editor! April 1st! A/K/A… April’s Fools Day!
I wonder if that’s an omen. The superstitious side of me is a little rocky on the idea, but the impatient side of me that just wants to get this book in your hands is like:
Any who, it’s on its way which is all that matters. And, also, it’s teaser Tuesday! So here’s a snippet from what I worked on yesterday.
“Don’t,” I tell him, running my hand along his cheek. Down his neck. Stopping on the spot where his heart hides behind flesh and bone. “Don’t shut the pain out. You can’t ever get over it if you don’t try to accept it first. Losing someone impacts you whether you want it to or not, and the impact is like a drill opening you up, leaving you cold and exposed with this aching pain that won’t seem to go away. Believe me… I know.”
He looks down at me. Squint…s as my words register, and his heart slams once, and then twice against his chest.
“Okay.” That’s all he says. It’s all he needs to say.
For a moment, I think he might break into a million pieces as he allows the pain to rush in, overflow, and I’m afraid he’ll disappear behind the shadows he’s kept within his soul. Burn within the flames of hatred for his mother that he’s held onto for far too long.
But he doesn’t.
He just looks at me, wearing his pain more clearly than I’ve ever seen in his eyes before. Really letting himself feel what he feels.
“She smelled like malt liquor.”
My eyebrows pull together.
“The night she left. I remember that she smelled like malt liquor.”
My heart is in jagged pieces, scraping down my throat. I want to ask him more, but I don’t know how. I don’t want to push him when he’s so close to finally dealing with it.
He takes in a ragged breath. “I want to show you.”

And scene. Sooo… as you might have guessed by now, there is going to be a major problem/growth in this book for Jaxen. Lots and lots of feels. Lots and lots of secrets revealed. This is definitely the most shocking book yet in the series. :)
And with that I leave you on pins and needles.
Can you believe it! My NaNo WriMo project is finally DONE!
Oh yeah… hello once again, readers!
So, about fifteen minutes ago, I typed those two sweet words… the end.
The first draft of Everlost is complete, which means it’s time for my read-through. Fun stuff.
The ending took a twist I never saw coming. Not until the last two chapters, and I have to tell you… tissues will need to be on hand when it’s being read.
Any who, I just wanted to share before I dive back into the cave and try to shape this baby up for my editor.
