"I know her walk, her scent, her voice..." CREATUS SERIES ~ Paranormal Romance Excerpt

Creatus Series

For four thousand years, creatus have concealed themselves from the humans who hunted them almost to extinction. Now, one creatus will endanger them all by breaking one of their laws: falling in love--with a human.

This is just an excerpt. If you'd like to read the first three chapters you can read them here.

“I want to talk to her.”
“The family won’t allow it. She’s a liability. And if it didn’t work…”
Derrick drilled a gaze at his brother again. “It’d never happen. I think I made myself clear on that. She hasn’t said a word all these years. Obviously, she’s forgotten.”
“What if she recognizes you? You’ll only look a few years older to her,” Michael said, as if he had to remind him what he looked like.
“I think I’m in love with her.”
“Derrick, you don’t even know her.”
“You’re wrong. I know everything about her. For the last year, all I can do is think about her. I know her walk, her scent, her voice… I know that she only reveals her real self to her best friend. I know that she fights invisible demons in her sleep, just as I do every night. I know that she dreams about moving somewhere safer and warmer, where I’ll never see her again. I know that she’s lonely. AndI think she’s waiting for me.”
“Damn, Bro, you’re a regular stalker.”
“You know it’s nothing like that. I’ve only protected her. But now, it’s there. The connection that I never understood, the reason I could never fall for another woman. My heart skips a beat every time I hear her voice. I’m not just worried about her anymoreI want to meet her—personally. Who knows, I might be like one of the other guys she meets, and she might turn me down flat, and then, you’ll win. I’ll walk away. But shouldn’t I get a chance? We’re the perfect age for each other now.”
Mike shook his head. “She’s still too young, dude. Few humans make lifelong relationship decisions at twenty-one, and she drinks too much. She’d be a liability. 

The Creatus Series is not your normal paranormal's a realistic twist of the myths you've heard your entire life. Prepare to believe...

"As in any fairytale, everything good must come to an end." ENTANGLED DREAMS:

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 fairytale, a little rain must fall, or in the case of my stories, I prefer a monsoon. This week’s excerpt: But alas, as in any good fairytale, everything good and wonderful must come to an end. After the tragic accident that snatched her mother away from Alexandra, her father moved them away from the beaches of Destin to another beach in Florida. Cocoa Beach. Cocoa Beach was loud, the water murky, and there were no weekend adventures as there had been in Destin. Her father married her evil stepmother, Lilith, who Alexandra was certain was a witch with her long, black as midnight hair and pale-white skin as if she’d never seen sunlight. Her father had admitted he wasn’t in love with Cruella, as she had come to think of the witchy woman, but that he’d wanted Alexandra to have a mother and siblings. Well, she definitely got that. The k

To prologue or not to prologue, that is the question. Readers, please weigh in!

Personally, I love prologues. They get you right into the action whether it was in the past or something exciting that is to come. But that’s exactly why most agents’ blogs I’ve read say not to use them. Paraphrasing…“If you need a prologue, then your story must not be strong enough…” Hmm … well, I like them, and I use them. But I’m curious what readers think, and I’d love you to weigh in. AND, if you have some great examples, please leave the title in the comment section. Now … here’s what I’ve noticed. Plenty of bestselling books have used them, even though they aren’t always called prologues . Same diff in my opinion. My biggest example is ‘Twilight’. If that little blurb wasn’t in the beginning, I don’t think I would have made it through the first chapter. How about movies? I don’t watch a lot. But I’ve started to notice how many have “prologues”. I also don’t have cable, but I have NetFlix, and hubby has just started watching ‘Breaking Bad’. Okay … I

The rule of thirds: No matter what you do, someone will hate you. Get over it and Write On!

No matter what you do in life, a third of the people will love you, a third will hate you, and the rest will be indifferent. Get over it and Write On! Yes, I'm talking to myself. If you're listening, GREAT! It's good advice! Is it easy advice? Heck No! For some reason, even though that percentage is rather low on my books--the percentage of people who hate my books runs about 4.6%--it still hurts.  Note: I only averaged the 'firsts' in my books, the books I actively promote. Because if I go to the second, third, and fourth books in my series, those numbers drop drastically. Obviously, if readers don't like my first book, they don't go on to the rest of my books in a series, so those books receive little to zero one-star reviews. So...if the number of one-star reviews we receive is less than five percent--Thank God ALL of the 33 1/3% of the haters don't write reviews--why do we get so depressed when we receive a one-star review
