I was dying.

Every minute I wasted without a mate, my mind became more volatile. I was unbalanced, stronger than I was capable of handling alone.

Supposedly, I was destined for greatness, but apparently I had to overcome another task first.

A mating.

Riley was my one true love. I was sure. However, that didn’t necessarily mean I was his. Complications, it seemed, were becoming my forte.

Despite my personal problems, the demons emerged, offering little hope and even less mercy. With my mind preoccupied, I wasn’t ready for the attack heading our way.

The pack needed me now more than ever, but the demons were cunning, thwarting my plans and upping the stakes each time.

I was letting them down. We weren’t ready. I wasn’t ready. 

Darkness descended on Nature’s Destiny, and sadness was sure to come.

War had begun.

Winter’s Hibernation

Jesus  Justine!  Where’ve  you  been?

I  know  that’s  the  thought  pursed  on  your  lips.  It’s  been  a  while  since  I’ve  properly  blogged,  and  I  apologise  for  that,  but  I  promise  I’ve  been  busy.  Well,  mostly  busy.  The  rest  of  the  time  I  may  have  spent  it  watching  this. . .

2e3a908d0bdb9d9e380c13bfac23d152And  drinking  a  little  of  this. . .

jack-danielsAnd  watching  a  little  more. . .

805cfac2ae611d578fe041bdf9a71fbfAnd  I  may  or  may  not  be  watching  it  as  I  write  this  post,  and  drinking  too.  Hey,  what  can  I  say?  I’m  consistent.  Besides  all  of  that,  I  truly  have  been  hard  at  work,  busting  out  the  words  I  know  you’re  dying  to  read.  So,  how  about  a  little  exciting  update?

Guardians  Dynasty,  Nature’s  Destiny  3,  releases  in  TWO  WEEKS.  Two  weeks  today!  And  judging  by  the  messages  I’ve  been  receiving  you’re  all  dying  to  know  what’s  going  to  happen  between  Luna  and  Riley.  Fear  not,  the  wait  is  almost  over.  So,  how  about  a  little  teaser?

“Luna,  it’s  Jaiyana.”

Taken  by  surprise,  I  smiled  into  the  phone.  It  was  good  to   hear    from  her.  “Hey!  How  are  you?” 

“Busy,  as  always.  Things  aren’t  looking  good  in  the   supernatural  world.”

I  sighed.  “I  know.  Did  you  hear  what  happened?”  Entering  the  living  room  I  settled  on  one  of  the  sofas,  pressing  the  phone  to  my  ear.

“Actually,  it’s  why  I’m  calling.  My  brother,  sister  and  I  apologise  for  not  being  able  to  celebrate  with  you,  unfortunately  our  calling  prohibited  time  for  fun.  Your  world  is  becoming  decidedly  dark,  Luna,  and   there  are  many   forces  battling  for  freedom.”

My  breath  hitched.  I’d  known  this  was  coming,  the  demon  had  all  but  promised  it,  but  hearing  the  words  from  Jaiyana  was  a  confirmation  I  didn’t  want. 

The  war  was  building  around  us.

Ooh,  isn’t  that  exciting?!  I  can’t  wait  to  find  out  what  you  guys  think  of  the  journey  in  this  book.  Aside  from  the  wolves  in  Nature’s  Destiny,  I’ve  also  been  dedicating  my  time  to  the  wolves  in  Alpha  Wanted,  a  3-part  serial  I  intend  to  release  sometime  in  Spring.  So  fear  not,  darlings!  I  may  be  quiet  on  here,  but  I’m  working  furiously  in  the  background  to  get  you  what  you  want  most:  a  sizzling  Alpha  with  a  story  to  tell.

Have  a  great  week!

Milestone Marker

Holy  Freakin’  Moly.

Whatever  you’re  doing  right  now,  stop.  Like,  seriously.  Stop.  I  have  another  exciting  milestone  to  mark.

Guess  what  I’ve  literally  done?  Any  takers? . . .

That’s right  lovers,  I’ve  finished  the  first  draft  of  Guardians  Dynasty!  You  guys  know  the  score,  still  got  a  way  to  go  yet  until  it’s  published,  but  I  wanted  to  share  this  victory  with  you  all  since  I’m  riding  a  pretty  epic  high  right  now.  This  is  me  in  my  pj’s,  you  know,  because  I’m  a  stereotypical  writer . . .

Oh,  and  while  I  remember. . .  Yeah,  it’s  easy  to  forget  what  I  was  meant  to  write  about  when  my  brain  is  shooting  stars  of  awesome  distraction  across  my  mind  right  now.  Guardians  Dynasty  has  a  theme  song,  and  I  literally  only  heard  it  the  other  day,  which  was  quite  lucky,  considering  the  lyrics  were  perfect  for  the  scenes  I  had  yet  to  write.  Anyway,  it’s  a  Nickelback  song  from  their  new  No  Fixed  Address  album , titled  The Hammer’s  Coming  Down.  So,  if  you  want  an  idea  of  what  to  expect  in  the  third  installment  of  the  Nature’s  Destiny  series,  then  listen  to  this.

I  hope  everyone  else’s  week  has  started  off  as  good  as  mine!

Blimey!  My  days  are  so  busy  melding  into  one  another  that  if  it  wasn’t  for  an  email  late  last  night  I’d  have  forgotten  that  today  is  in  fact  the  11th  October.  You  know,  that  time  of  the  month  when  I,  amongst  others,  share  7  lines  of  our  WIP.  Here’s  what  I  have  to  offer  today  from  Guardians  Dynasty  (Nature’s  Destiny  #3).  Oh,  and  before  I  forget  there’s  some  great  giveaways  going  this  month  that  you’ll  want  to  check  out,  too.  😉

I  faced  the  burning  ashes  of  the  land  I  once  called  home,  dying  with  every  breath  that  left  my  body.  Black  was  all  that  remained  for  my  vision  had  lost  its  affinity  to  colour.  The  creatures  brought  an  indefinite  darkness  that  was  only  ever  highlighted  by  the  raging  red  of  fire.  The  sun  no  longer  existed,  replaced  by  the  moon  for  the  people  to  suffer.  Skin  grew  paler,  death  came  quicker

My  wolf  and  I  missed  those  of  our  kind,  for  the  companionship  only  a  wolf  could  provide,  for  the  ties  of  a  family  bond,  for  the  purpose  of  a  pack.

It  was  at  such  a  time  as  this  when  I  was  at  my  nose-to-the-floor  weakest,  when  an  angel  appeared  from  the  sky.

Giveaways:

Heather  Hildenbrand  is  offering  4  signed  paperback  copies  of  her  Dirty  Blood  series  &  a  LIVE  Q&A  on  5th Nov!  Enter  here.

Bethany  Lopez  is  offering  an  eBook  of  the  Stories  About  Melissa  books  1-4  collection.  Enter  here.

Every  year  this  day  comes  around  too  fast.  I’ll  switch  on  the  tv  to  find  documentary  upon  documentary  re-living  the  tragic  events  of  13  years  ago,  and  once  again  I’ll  realise  we’re  nearing  another  anniversary.  I  was  only  10  at  the  time,  and  yet  I  still  remember  that  day  even  though  I  had  absolutely  no  idea  what  was  going  on.  While  I’m  busy  writing  today,  creating  fake  tragedies  that  supernatural  creatures  can  stop,  I’ll  be  taking  a  moment’s  silence  to  remember  the  many  that  lost  their  lives,  including  the  brave  men  and  women  that  sacrificed  theirs  to  save  another.  I  only  wish  there’d  been  a  Riley  and  Luna  to  save  them.

 So,  speaking  of  Riley  and  Luna,  I  bet  you’re  wondering  what  I’m  going  to  share  with  you  for  this  months  blog  hop.  With  Nature’s  Destiny  published,  and  Sapphire’s  Divinity  published  too,  I  figured  I’d  give  you  something  hot  off  the  press.  I’m  going  to  share  the  very  first  snippet  of  what’s  to  come  from  book  3  which  does  have  a  title.  This  is  the  earliest  I’ve  ever  worked  out  a  title  for  a  book,  and  you  know  what?  I  think  I’m  going  to  share  that  today,  too.  Exciting?  Woohoo!!

Okay,  drum  roll,  please . . .

The  third  book  in  the  Nature’s  Destiny  series  is  called . . .

Guardians  Dynasty

And  here’s  this  months  7-line  teaser  which  I  only  wrote  on  Tuesday;  it’s  that  new!

*Unedited,  first  draft  only.  Content   subject  to  change.*

“The  story  of  the  Blood  Moon,  however,  is  supposedly  the  symbol  of  a  new  realm  on  Earth,   a  new  way  of  living  controlled  by  the  demons’  beasts.”

“Hell  beasts,”  Shane  clarified.  “They  tear  the  world  apart  until  fear  and  evil  is  all  that’s  left  within  the  humans.  No  hope.  No  happiness.  No  laughter.”

“And  the  demons  join  our  world  indefinitely,”  Riley  finished.

If  you  enjoyed  that  then  you  might  want  to  check  out  this  giveaway  I  have  going  on  right  now.  Every  Alpha  needs  a  Beta.  Just  like  Riley  depends  on  Nick  and  Shane,  I’m  offering  the  chance  for  two  lucky  readers  to  become  Beta’s  for  the  next  book  in  the  series.  What  does  that  mean?  It  means  YOU  get  to  read  the  next  story  before  anyone  else  AND  tell  me  what  you  think!  Sound  like  fun?  It  should  be!  Enter  here.  Good  Luck!

Also,  there’s  an  amazing  giveaway  going  with  Janet  Wallace (creator  of  UtopYACon) and  author S.M. Boyce  who’ve  teamed  up  to  offer  2  general  admission  tickets  to  2015’s  UtopYACon! How  awesome  is  that? If  you  want  to  know  more,  I  suggest  you  check  out  S.M Boyce’s  post  here,  and  then  you  can  enter  the  giveaway  here.  Trust  me,  this  is  a  giveaway  you  don’t  want  to  miss.

Every  month  several  other  incredibly  talented  authors  post  their  7-line  teaser,  too.  So  make  sure  you  check  out  the  list  below  to  see  what  they  have  to  offer  this  week.  Have  a  great  weekend!
