We’ve made it to the midweek everyone and to help celebrate I’ve got a surprise for you all :)!
Last week I shared a quick excerpt from the YA Action & Adventure/Fantasy novel ‘Ayestra Calling (Return of the Guardian Trilogy, Book 2 – WIP)’
Don’t have a Kindle? No worries as this download is available in mobi, epub and pdf formats ^_^. I decided I wanted to make the book available for free, around the same time I chose a release month for Book 2 (February 2015). I want as many readers to get a chance to enjoy the beginning of Emma’s adventure and stay for tea, as we head into the perilous world of the second book Ayestra Calling.
Here’s another sneak peek from Book 1, Secrets. We enter at a moment that begins a series of events which change protagonist Emma’s life forever, enjoy :):
“They’re coming! Get her out of here!” I was immediately terrified. Whatever was chasing Tai, had disturbed him enough that not only had he raised his voice above an expressionless drone, but he actually sounded scared. I was already on my feet after the shout and Noah responded just as quickly. Wordlessly he motioned me to follow him in the other direction. As we ran, Noah started taking off his jacket, then his vest and following suit, I started to shift, unsure what to expect. I could still hear our pursuers, but Tai was silent, I couldn’t even distinguish his footfall from any others. There was a blinding light and I instinctively threw my hands up to my face trying to block it out. When it dimmed, I saw that Noah had stopped too and was doubling back to ensure I was okay. As he came towards me, his gaze averted and he showed his true form, coming forward teeth bared.
I looked back, allowing my claws to extend, ready for battle.
“Down pup,” someone said, accent clear and sweet. The call came from beyond the light that still hid the figures I couldn’t make out. Noah, just a few yards in front of me now, stopped uncertainly. “That’s right, I’ll have none of that.” I strained to see who was speaking and even when I came closer, all I could recognize were five or six silhouettes. Noah made one more step forward, then to my surprise, dropped to all fours and bowed. ~
I get so excited when reading about the lives of my characters and those of others that I’ve grown to love. I honestly can’t wait to see where Emma’s story takes me and with the free download available, share as many times as you like so others can be a part of this unfolding saga ^_^.
Thanks for joining me lovely readers and I’ll see you Friday :)!
