A Sneak Peek…and Other News!

I have exciting news: Deception is in the process of being formatted for publication. This means that it will be released very soon! I’ve been working very hard on the final edit, thanks to a couple members of my review team who gave me their very helpful editing expertise.

Sneak Peak into Deception:

I closed my eyes and enjoyed the warm sun beating down on me and the sounds of the lake lapping up on the shore. It was so calming.

I wasn’t sure how much time had passed when I heard a strange whirring noise. I tried to ignore it, hoping that it would go away.

It only got louder and gave me a creepy feeling, so I opened my eyes.

I was so startled by the sight of over a hundred crows flying in a massive circle directly above where I was sitting that I jumped off the bench.

They were all going around and around in a circle. As soon as one made eye contact with me, it began to caw. The rest followed suit and dozens of crows were orbiting around and around right over me, and all of them were shrieking at me.

I grabbed my purse and inched away from the bench without breathing. I couldn’t take my eyes off of them, and I noticed that as I inched along, the whole circle inched right along with me in the air above me. I stopped for a moment and finally took a breath.

As soon as I began to breathe again, every single creepy bird in the circling, cawing flock turned its eyes toward me. Each one was looking down at me while whirling above my head.

To make sure that I wasn’t losing my mind, I slowly walked about two feet. Each one kept its eyes fixed on me. They circled, cawing, and they stayed directly above me. Exactly as I moved, the circle moved.

I made a split second decision and ran to my car as fast as I could without looking up or back. Once I was safely locked in my car, I looked outside to see if they had followed me. I didn’t see them, so I inched myself forward so that I could see above the car without getting out.

There they were, flying right above my car in their massive whirl.

The first draft of Book Two has been completed. The estimated publication is early next year! The wait in between books won’t be too long. You will get a sneak peak into the second book, including the book’s name, when you finish reading Deception.

Deception will take you through many exciting adventures with Alexis and her friends. The adventure will continue and bring about more twists and surprises when you read the second book.

I look forward to revealing the cover soon. It will be as fabulous as Deception’s cover!

I began writing Book Three today. Alexis’ adventures are far from over as the excitement continues.

Did you read my interview with Alexis? It’s a fun read and will give more previews into Deception! Also, be sure to sign up for my newsletter so that you can receive periodic free bonus chapters!

Thank you for your interest and support! I’d love to hear from, please leave a comment!
