Bloody hell! I almost forgot to type this month’s teaser, and I know that would’ve been devastating. Right?  Anyway, now that I’ve remembered, how about a little less chit chat and a little more show and tell. I got you covered. Next month I intend to release all 3 parts of my werewolf serial, Alpha Wanted, a week apart from one another. So, how about a teaser from part 1?  Alrightey then!

 “It  was  a  mistake,”  I  forced  out  of  my  mouth.  Even  hearing  the  words  out  loud  turned  my  stomach  against  me.

“Sure  didn’t  feel  like  a  mistake  when  you  were  moaning  into  my  mouth.” 

I  turned  to  Ryker,  fixing  my  glare  on  his  rugged  face.  I  hated  how  easy  it  was  for  me  to  lose  control  around  him,  to  lose  all  my  inhibitions  inside  the  pools  of  his  blue  eyes.  I  tightened  my  lips  together.  “It  won’t  be  happening  again,”  I  promised,  keeping  my  grip  firm  on  the  steering  wheel.

“Princess,  that  was  the  best  mistake  I’ve  ever  made.  So  you  can  trust  me  when  I  say  I  intend  to  do  it  again.  I’ll  make  sure  I’ll  never  learn  my  lesson.”

I’m a mixture of excitement and nerves to find out the response to this serial as it’s something I haven’t done before. But, you know what? No great accomplishment was achieved without a little risk taking. So I’m diving in head first. It’s also the closest I’ve come to writing a crime/mystery type of book within the boundaries of paranormal/supernatural goodness. Of course. What’s a little crime solving without a hunky wolf? So be on the lookout for cover reveals/blurbs etc in the next couple of weeks. Yay!

As always there’s many brilliantly talented authors participating on the hop, so be sure to check them out. And GIVEAWAYS! So here’s what’s what this month:

Heather Hildenbrand has a custom Dirty Blood Mug up for grabs! Enter here.
Bethany Lopez has 8 weeks up for grabs on goodreads. Enter here.

Also it’s an exciting month for book releases!
Today, Heather Hildenbrand’s Broken Blood, book 5 in the Dirty Blood series comes out!
Steph Nuss is releasing Pleasured By You on March 20th.
Kayla Smith is releasing The Sacrifice on March 31st.

Congratulations, ladies!

Happy  December, everybody, and  a  very  Merry  Christmas  to  you!  

As  Christmas  is  two  weeks  today,  (I  know,  right?  Didn’t  that  come  fast!)  I  have  a  holiday-themed  teaser  for  you.  This  time  next  year  I  intend  to  release  a  book  of  short  stories  from  different  points  of  view  within  the  Nature’s  Destiny  world  that  all  focus  on  one  theme;  holidays.  Today’s  teaser  is  from  Sky’s  (Nature’s  Destiny  character) POV,  and  I  will  release  her  FULL  CHRISTMAS  STORY  via  my  newsletter  on  Christmas  day.  So,  if  you  want  IN  on  a  FREE  read,  be  sure  to  sign  up  here.

*Copyright,  Justine  Winter,  2014*

The  cobbled-stone  town  was  a  frantic  mess  of  rushing  shoppers  dashing  into  every  store  for  last-minute  gifts.  Tinsel  covered  windows  and  doors,  and  colourful  lights  hung  like  a  welcoming  invitation,  embracing  the  festive  cheer.

I  wrapped  my  arms  around  my  chest,  pulling  my  coat  tighter  to  keep  in  the  warmth.   A  frosty  breeze  twirled  past  my  face;  my  nose  was  frozen  to  the  touch.

Christmas  was  only  a  few  days  away,  and  every  year  it  was  the  same  depressing,  lonely  holiday  of  my  life.  I  was  always  the  grumpiest  person  around  all  this  holly  jolly  spirit;  the  Grinch  had  nothing  on  me.  

God  knows  why  I  thought  a  trip  into  town  would  help  cheer  me  up.

Okay,  so  I  know  that  doesn’t  sound  particularly  happy  and  festive,  and  it’s  not  my  intention  to  bum  you  out  on  Chrimbo  day,  so  I  do  promise  it  gets  better.  Honestly.  Also,  while  I  remember,  the  Nature’s  Destiny  paperback  giveaway  finishes  at  the  end  of  this  month  on  goodreads,  so  hop  on  over  here  quickly  and  make  sure  you’ve  entered  to  win.

Now,  be  sure  to  check  out  this  great  list  of  authors,  and  see  what  brilliant  teasers  they  have  to  offer  this  month.  Seriously,  these  peoples  are  amazing  writers.

Amanda  Aksel  –  Women’s  Fiction
Heather  Hildenbrand  –  YA
Bethany  Lopez  –  NA  Romance
Kayla  Smith  –  Paranormal
Shawn  McGuire  –  YA –  also  has  a  cover  reveal  today!  Check  out  the  beauty  here.

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.

Kayla  Smith’s  Luna  is  currently  FREE  on  Amazon  for  a  limited  time.  Find  it  here.

And  as  always  be  sure  to  check  out  what  these  amazing  authors  have  to  share  today!

Today  marks  a  very  special  moment  for  the  7-11  blog  hop. It’s  the  first  one,  and  I’m  so  honoured  to  be  a  part  of  it.  Every  month  on  the  11th  I’ll  be  posting  7  lines  from  whichever  novel  I’m  working  on.  How  awesome  is  that?  You  guys  get  a  sneak  peek  preview  every  month! Can  I  get  a  high  five?  #Woohoo  And,  I’m  not  the  only  one  partaking  in  this  blog  hop  so  be  sure  to  check  out  the  list  below  to  see  what  such  extraordinary,  talented  authors  have  to  offer  from  their  WIP’s  too! I  can  guarantee  you  won’t  be  disappointed!

Also,  I  wanted  to  do  a  special  little  shout  out  to  the  wonderful  founder  of  this  brand  new  venture  –  Amanda  Aksel.  Amanda,  a  very  HAPPY  BIRTHDAY  to  you  today,  and  I  hope  you  have  a  brilliant  day!

Now  on  to  the  goodies.  Today’s  7  lines  come  from  Sapphire’s  Divinity,  the  second  novel  in  the  Nature’s  Destiny  series.  Enjoy!

A  pounding  drum  beat  inside  my  head,  and  the  rhythm  increased  pressure  to  my  temple.  I  was  dizzy,  barely  capable  of  holding  my  eyes  open  long  enough  to  get  a  glimpse  as  to  where  I  was.

I  was  in  darkness,  that  much  I  knew  from  the  glance  I  was  able  to  achieve.  I  focused  on  my  breathing,  calming  my  mind  with  every  intake  of  oxygen.

Where  was  I?  What  was  going  on?

I  managed  to  open  my  eyes  entirely,  and  I  almost  wished  I  couldn’t.

Don’t  forget  to  check  out  these  authors,  plus  Amanda’s  holding  a  giveaway  for  her  novel,  The  Man  Test.  So  be  sure  to  click  here  and  enter!
