Alanna let out a sigh. “You’ll be with us as well. The second you step out of line though, I won’t hesitate to shoot you.”

“Why wouldn’t you just cast a spell?” Dante asked, brows furrowing.

“You’re not worth the energy,” she responded coolly.

Line of the week:

What story I’m working on: Rising for Autumn (Another slower week due to intense editing sessions, however, this story is picking up steam!)

What I’m editing/marketing: Night Awakens! Like a boss. I’ve been rolling through this one with a speed that surprised me. I honestly didn’t think I’d be done this til September, but I may step it up to end of July or August!

Line of the week:

She’d sworn she wouldn’t end up like her little brother, but loneliness didn’t arrive with flashing bulbs and a warning label. It was as simple and complex as a faked smile, white lies about being ‘okay,’ and the nod and acceptance as her own peers didn’t delve deeper, shutting the coffin lid for her.

The moment the features of the tall brunette with the pin-perfect ponytail came into focus, Sam let out a groan. Alanna Carrington, head witch of the Philadelphia coven, hurtled his way, and with her, trouble was a guarantee.
