So I’ve been MIA which isn’t really all that unusual but I promise I’m working on getting better. A quick update on my life. As many of you know (if you follow me on facebook) I’m pregnant with kiddo #3. This has basically left me exhausted 24/7 so unless it involves writing or advertising, I basically haven’t done it. I’m tired. All the f-ing time. LOL
I know that isn’t a great excuse but it’s what I’ve got so I’m going with it.
That said, a few things have happened recently. I finally got around to updating the WEBSITE YAY!
Kissed by Fire is now out in audio! Double YAY! Links to purchase are below and you can also go HERE to listen to a sample.
I made a new boxset cover for the first 3 books in the series. I’ve decided to split the series into two volumes for anyone who likes a good deal. These will retail for $9.99 which will save you about $2 off list price had you purchased all three books separately and it should be live later this week so be on the lookout.
That said, I know what you’re all waiting for and that is a snippet of Forged by Fire so without further ado…here it is.
FORGED BY FIRE: Unedited Snippet. Read at your own risk
“What did I get myself into?” I jumped over the table and landed in a crouch as it sailed past me.
Another object — this time a metal folding chair — zipped through the air aiming for my face.
My feet pounded through the warehouse as I sprinted through the wide open space, zipping past more flying furniture in my haste to get away.
“Think Aria. Think.”
Soft afternoon light filtered in through the dirt coated windows, lighting the space and illuminating Dia’s annoyed frown.
“Stop thinking like a merc and think like a psyker!” She shouted.
Easy for her to say. She wasn’t the one being chased by random furniture.
Breathing heavily, I rounded a pillar and ran smack into a coffee table that brought me to my knees.
Jumping to my feet on autopilot, I kicked the table in the center with my booted foot. It split so I kicked it again, this time breaking it in half.
“You can’t win by killing the furniture.” This time it was Jason Hoang’s voice.
I lifted my gaze and spied him across the room. He was leaning against a brick pillar with a bored expression on his face.
I wanted to punch him. What the hell kind of training was this supposed to be anyway?
An idea formed in my mind and before I could second guess myself, I launched to my feet and sprinted in his direction.
He straightened and narrowed his gaze on me.
“What do you think you’re doing?”
I smirked. If I couldn’t win by killing the furniture, then I’d take out the person controlling it.
I was five feet away now and closing in when all of a sudden an invisible wall formed between us.
I ran head first into it and bounced back falling on my ass.
“Shit.” I spit blood and glowered up at him.
“You can’t beat every opponent with brute force. You’re not a shifter.” He flicked his gaze toward Declan who had so far been a quiet observer.
I threw my hands in the air. “What do you want from me? I’m trying here.”
Dia stomped over and helped me to my feet before giving me a little shove in the shoulder.
“You’re not trying. You’re a telekinetic now. Use it.”
I shook my head. They didn’t know what they were asking for. “I fight better with my pyrokinetic powers —“
“Too bad. You’re never going to take down your mother if you don’t figure out how to master both and use them in conjunction with one another. And stop fighting like a street fighter. Look at you.” Jason waved a hand in my direction. “You’re covered in sweat, breathing heavy, and look like a strong wind could topple you over.” He shook his head and then turned to Declan.
“Has no one been working with her?”
Declan’s eyes narrowed and filled with flecks of gold.
“What exactly are you insinuating?” he asked and took a menacing step forward.
That’s right, baby! You tell him.
