ENTANGLED DREAMS, my third novel, is releasing this summer. I do not have a cover, but I loved this picture, which I believe epitomizes the first scene.
Now, if you’ve read any of my novels, or excerpts, you know I don’t do happy-go-lucky beginnings, and as in any good fairytale, a little rain must fall. Or in the case of my stories, I prefer a monsoon. If you missed the first few excerpts, click here. Don't worry; there's a link which will bring you right back.
This week’s excerpt:
It sounds like your typical fairytale, but it isn’t. There are no furry creatures to help the princess prepare a gown for the prom, no fairy godmother to waive her magic wand and produce glass slippers. In fact, at age sixteen Alexandra found herself living on her own with no family contact and no prospects of a healthy, normal life.
Alexandra had only one advantage, if you could call it that. Alexandra was beautiful. But so far, her beauty had not opened any doors; actually, it had only caused her misery.
The only people who welcomed Alexandra were the outcasts. The parents of other losers in school fortunately didn’t care who slept over and what they did when they slept over. So, Alexandra Nicole, now deciding to go by Nicky, as she was no longer a princess, found herself wandering from house to house throughout her remaining high school years.
And then she met him…
You may think the monsoon has already hit, but it hasn't, yet... So please join me next week as we venture into chapter one.
I love writing modern-day fairytales and am not afraid to take on tough issues. My novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping, but not graphic. If you’d like to sample the first chapters and excerpts of my current romantic-suspense novels, without downloading anything, follow these links:
Way to create suspense! Nice sixReplyDelete
Thank you, Amy. I can't wait to jump into the first chapter. The last few weeks have just been a quick prologue, just a narrative style of introducing you to my protagonist.Delete

The monsoon hasn't hit yet? Uh-oh, is it the mysterious "him?" Can't wait to find out more! :)ReplyDelete
Oh, I'm really liking this story. Nicky sounds like a fantastic character. More, please.ReplyDelete
