What happens after The End? ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #MSS54

 

I’ve never participated in one of these particular bloghops before, but this question (from last week) intrigued me. You, my dear readers, haven’t seen me personally on my blog lately because, you know? I’ve been trying to answer this very thing. You’ve seen my complete body of work, no doubt. Most of these books have somehow turned into series. So for what happens after the end? Let’s see….When I got to the end of Drawing Down the Shades, I had in mind exactly where the Antique Magic series was going next…but. Caitlin threw another storyline at me and insisted that one come first. I’ve been bashing my head against a wall trying to write both of the books, and stuck trying to figure it where the first one goes, ever since. (I hate to use the word Writer’s Block here, but let’s just say I’m ready to throw a certain little witch on the bonfire soon, if she doesn’t tell me how her darned story goes! *laughs*)

House of Cards. I’d always planned to continue writing something more about this family but it took me a while to get the next member’s jaws unstuck. In the course of working all that out, you’ll never believe what happened. *g* (Okay, maybe you will–at least the writers will) The short story has spawned a whole new novel-length (yes, novel-length) manuscript. I don’t want to jinx it by talking about it too much yet, because this manuscript has been uber-tempramental, but it might be going to my beta readers soon. (*knock on wood*) Does it fit into the sexy category? A little…at least, I think so. More than the first as the heroine is in love. :) (No, I’m not kidding) You’ll see why sometime in the next oh, say three or four months, I hope. I daresay it’s closer to release than any other. (Maybe *zips lip*)

Passion’s Sacred Dance currently has a work-in-progress (or two) kicking around my computer–and my faery godparents (from Changeling’s Crown) are toying with me, hinting, hinting. We’ll see what, if anything, happens there. So, busy. Writers, how are your manuscripts going?

Sneak Peek Sunday–Did he have to keep bugging her?

Sneak Peek Sunday BannerI feel like it’s been a long time since I’ve done this, and then, in others, that I just put up a Sneak Peek Sunday post. Checking the calender though that isn’t so. I’m just still in vacation fog. So, here we are for another round. :) Continuing from where we left off in CHANGELING’S CROWN last time around. Ianthe has a moment where she just may lose it…Always makes her wonder why when she feels like that. But what happens to push her to the brink? Let’s see.

(Ianthe)  tried not to snarl back, but it was hard. She tapped a finger to her lips. “Didn’t I hear you just came back from Desire Island? How’d that go?”

His mud brown eyes narrowed. “You heard wrong. It was Devil’s Island.”

“Ah.” She nodded. “My mistake.”

“Yes, you make many.” He turned on his heel. “So, I see you have more studying to do. Good luck with it, Hypericum. You’ll need it.”

Ianthe’s fists clenched and she wanted to stamp her foot against the citrine floor tiles, but the sound would reverberate through them as if she’d shattered a glass wall and tell the whole kingdom how angry she was. The nerve of Techsmauch! He was such an ass! Why did he constantly make her life a living hell?

Why and what will he do to her next? If you’d like to find out, CHANGELING’S CROWN is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, and Createspace.

CHANGELING’S CROWN

GENRE: New Adult Paranormal Romance

Changeling's Crown New Adult paranormal romance by Juli D. Revezzo; faeries; fairy tale-based storiesSynopsis:

 When Ianthe began her career as a faery godmother, she stumbled so badly that Snow White will probably never speak to her again. After a long suspension, she’s finally been given a chance to redeem herself…but everything on this latest assignment is going wrong.

But why?

Worse, she definitely doesn’t need an attractive mortal man distracting her from her duties. Of course, needs and wants are two different things.

Briak has had his eye on Ianthe for a very, very long time, but he’s been waiting for just the right moment to make his move. Despite the fact all hell’s about to break loose on his watch, he can’t resist the opportunity to insert himself into her earthly assignment. Can he convince Ianthe of her true calling and thereby win her heart? Or will his subterfuge ultimately cost him her love?

I hope you will enjoy it!

Summer Solstice confab.

To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online

Here’s mine, in honor of Summer Solstice. The Solstice came and it’s already hot as heck here, so does it count? for what it’s worth I spent the day out walking and yeah…I think even the animals were taking advantage of the shade. You have to wonder if they laugh at us dumb humans, out in the hot sun.  During the latter part of the walk we found a confab of animals hiding out under the trees and these two facing off.

faceoff

You really think you’re taking that nut home, big guy?

:) I wonder what they were saying to each other. Were they facing off over an acorn stash… Or, thinking with a fantasy writer’s brain, were they planning some war against a common enemy?

faeries everywhere–new release

Sort of ….Actually, they’re just in my new book.

Fairies

Yep. That’s right. Finally, a new book. (Well, it’s finally for me, because I’ve been working up the silly thing since…I want to say mid-2012 but can’t find the date in my notes so don’t quote me on that exact date!). Geeze, another you say? Yes, well…I write, more than anything, I write. Some people play golf or like to go fishing, spin yarn, or love cooking, I write.  Anyway, this piece is entitled:

Changeling’s Crown:
genre: upper YA/New Adult Paranormal sweet paranormal romance
(Yep, slightly different genre)

 Changeling's Crown; fairy godmother; paranormal romance

I’m totally in love with this cover by Boulevard Photografica. and the gorgeous photo is by a photographer named  Nobledeath (aka Reiner). It’s beautiful, isn’t it?

Changeling’s Crown is available for Kindle and currently $.99 at Amazon and the paperback is processing….I hope it will be live by Monday. *fingers crossed*

The story is a little different than what you might be used to from me; it’s not quite as dark as Caitlin’s books (or Passion’s Sacred Dance for that matter). I channeled (or tried) my friend S.G. Rogers/Meg Cabot’s guiding muses for this one and while they and my usual one duked it out. All’s well. We eventually got together for dinner and hatched this screwy story. ;) I hope it gives you a chuckle here or there. I couldn’t help it Ianthe got in my head and I couldn’t stop her chattering until the book was done. And her nemesis just lends this different air to it that made me have a lot of fun with the story. I hope y’all will like it too.
