First Preview of Forgotten! #Excerpt and Teaser Image


Forgotten will be released next month! This isn’t the cover reveal yet…you’ll have to wait a few weeks for that yet. But, I do have a teaser image for you as well as the first excerpt reveal.

I’m very excited to reveal both! We will begin with the excerpt and then you can see the teaser image. It isn’t actually going to be on the cover, but it’s similar.

Excerpt #1

I rolled over in bed, trying to ignore the alarm. A song was playing that I’d never heard and the bed felt different. I opened one eye and sat up, looking around in shock and horror. I was in my bedroom at my human family’s home. But I had gone to sleep in my room in the castle. I should have opened my eyes and found myself there.

Sighing, I turned the alarm off. My room was completely different. Things had been moved around, there were new things that I didn’t recognize, and the walls were even a different color. Rubbing my eyes, I tried to figure out what was going on. What was the last thing that I could remember? The memories of the last months at the castle filled my mind….

What had happened? Why couldn’t I remember how I’d gotten here?

My dad came in. “What are you still doing in bed?”

I stared at him. He had a new haircut and was wearing new clothes. He didn’t usually buy new clothes and he never changed his haircut.

“It’s graduation day. You don’t have time to waste. You’re giving the big speech today,” he said, smiling as only a proud dad could.

Graduation? My graduation wasn’t for another year and a half! Like my ex-friend, Emma, had said: that was practically forever. “Are you kidding me?”

His face went pale. “No, Alexis. I’m not. Tell me that you haven’t forgotten.”

How could it be my graduation day? It wasn’t even Christmas of my Junior year yet.

“Janet!” my dad called out. “She’s having another memory lapse! Come in here!”

A memory lapse? Another memory lapse?

Now for the teaser image! This will be used in my soon to arrive bookmarks!

Forgotten Preview

    Way to go, Stacy! This read sounds like a real page turner!

    You are such an inspiration. I’m sure once I finish my first book the others will come a bit easier. However, the first one has been a learning experience for me – filled with things I’ve done wrong, and will do differently the next go around.

    Did you find this to be the case for you, as well? Was the second book easier than the first?

    At any rate, I am very proud of you. Keep up the great work! I am rooting in your corner, even if I don’t say so often enough. Cheers, beloved. 🙂

      Thank you very much, Deone! It definitely gets easier with time and practice. I’ve gone back and re-edited my first novel several times since publication. With each book, I find that my own voice gets stronger and I’m less concerned (in a good way) about getting everything perfect.

      I’m also continually learning, reading up on the topic of writing every day. I also read other books in my genre to learn more about the genre. Also joining groups where other authors are hanging out is beneficial too!

      Be sure to let me know when your book is ready to go!
