Happy Easter everyone! I hope you're having a great day. There hasn't been too much more news to share. I have been hard at work on my paranormal romance, AF. I'm less than 9,000 words away from THE END. It's so exciting since it'll be my second completed novel-length manuscript. I'll keep you updated on that.
The time is getting ever closer for Melody of Love to be released! So here is a second excerpt to whet your appetite! =)
The phone rang again, and it was Alex.
“Hey, I’m on my way up, okay?” he said.
“That’s great,” Kathryn said, starting to feel the jitters.
“Oh, no problem. I’m going to try to act like a gentleman.” He laughed and it sounded like the sweetest sound to her ears. She loved listening to happy laughter.
“I’m sure you’ll do fine in that regard,” she joked.
“Thanks for your vote of confidence. I’ll try not to disappoint.”
She could hear him walking up stairs over the phone. He was getting closer because she could hear the click clack of footsteps outside her door. She glanced through the peephole and saw him standing there as sexy as could be in a black button up shirt and slacks. Oh my God. He was gorgeous. She had never been able to call a man gorgeous before.
“Well, I’m here,” he said through the phone. “Should I knock?”
“Hmmm. Yeah. You might need to.” She laughed.
“Okay then.” She watched as he knocked on the door. She could see the way the jacket fit him so perfectly when he reached for the door.
“Oh, just a second, there’s someone at the door,” she said and opened the door. “Oh! It’s you.” She smiled. Her mind was blown. It was good she had worn what she did, or she would have felt completely underdressed! With him, she now knew there were adventures and surprises on the way. She didn’t want him to have some fancy restaurant reservations and her show up looking like she walked in off the street.
“Wow. You look very nice,” she commented.
“I could definitely say the same thing about you. You’re beautiful.”
I also have some exciting information from a TARA chapter mate. Julie Leto is doing some great giveaways at her blog, http://www.plotmonkeys.com, starting Monday! She's not only giving away a chapter a day of her upcoming paranormal romance, PHANTOM PLEASURES, but she's also sweetening the pot by offering a $20 Amazon/Borders gift card per day to anyone who leaves a comment.
