Ink Motions ~ Echoes in Death

tcreadeidReading the new JD Robb’s book. As usual it is so good. I’m almost reluctant to finish it. Almost…lol. I’m going to finish then reread it.

I love the whole In Death series and this books is another for the keeper shelf.

Now back to reading.

Between the Covers – Power of Attraction

Today’s Between the Covers is an excerpt from my book.

Here is a excerpt from Power of Attraction (Blackstone Haven, Book # 1). Enjoy.

Wesley was amused by the look of fury mixed with distress on Ian’s normally affable face. He turned, interested in seeing the person who caused such a reaction. Shocked emerald green eyes stared at him. His heart skipped a beat.

Wesley hungrily took in the woman from the forest. She was real. He wasn’t losing his mind. Unconsciously, he took a step towards her. She backed up a step.

Fury filled him. She had run from him once, and she wasn’t doing it again. With a determined stride, he closed the space between them and grabbed her arm. She tried to shrug him off. He changed his grip and yanked her against his body. A shudder racked him as their bodies touched. The scent of cinnamon and vanilla he had thought he imagined cloyed around them. He felt her shiver in reaction. Her eyes heated then went cool.

A click sounded behind him. Absently, he looked away from her compelling gaze. He stilled at the sight of the gun trained on him. The wrath in the other woman’s amber gaze let him know she was waiting for an excuse to blow him away. Her features, so much like those of the woman he held, told him they were somehow related.

The woman in his arms moved against him. The feel of her soft breasts against his chest drove all sane thought from his mind. He turned and jerked her up into his arms.

“Wrap your legs around me,” Wesley growled.

The woman’s eyes narrowed, but she clamped her legs around his waist.

“Don’t order me around.” Her husky voice stroked along his senses.

He put his face close to hers. “Don’t give me reason to.”

She jerked back. He clamped his hands on her ass to hold her against him. She stilled. Wesley gritted his teeth at the feel of her jean-clad mound against him. His mind flashed to the forest and their kiss. He saw the answering flare in her green gaze.

Monday Adventure ~ Tweaking to Find a Fit…

tcteaser2016-1Monday Adventure starts with a planning.

So I mentioned I was planning stuff this year. :) One of the things I have been planning and figuring out is tweaking what I wanted to write on this blog. It’s a continual work in progress. I change things up sometimes. :)

Last month I blogged about various things on a daily basis and enjoyed it. Now I’ve figured out things I want to add to blog now it’s about the timing (how often) I will post and on what days of week or weekend. I know what I will do for that. Plan to blog a few times during the weekdays and on weekend more randomly. :) I enjoy changing and tweaking what I do. Keeps it fresh. :)

That was my adventure for today. What was your Monday Adventure?

Weekly Wrap-up ~ Progress…

tcwritingI’m still writing and making really good progress. There is a point in a book where you just feel in your gut if it will work or not. Yeah I’m approaching that place and it’s exhilarating and scary all at once. Love that feeling.

Well that’s what I’ve been up to this week. What did you do this week?

Rhythm Maker

tcrhythmmakerI have a few things I call myself (some I can even share in public. LOL). One of those things I think of myself as is a Rhythm Maker.

There is a subtle rhythm that beats when you read. One you probably don’t even notice.

From the first word of any book, you read it pulls you in and takes you on a journey. Each step gives you various beat that resonate within you. That first blush of meeting and the little catch that you get when you read it. The foray of the characters as they do that dance of seduction that keeps your heart racing as you wonder will or won’t they give into that chemistry. Then when they do you your pulse skyrockets with each kiss, caress and thrust as they come together. After you, continue with them on the journey of their affair. The up rhythms of them getting to know each other better after each of their sexual encounters. You laugh at their antics that makes your body move in time with them. That little sound you make as something they do pleases you. The humph as they act the fool. The sway as you enjoys the journey that makes you go up then down and all around with the characters of the story. When an obstacle comes and you clench your fist while your heart breaks, with them as you wonder how can they fix this and the tears fall with the person most devastated after the black moment. When ultimately they triumph over their issues to overcome it all to be together—your soul rejoices and you love it. Joy spread through you making your pulse race. Once done you exhale and that dance is done, at least until the next time you pick up another book.

All books have rhythms that pull you in and brings you within the pages of the story. One that is individual as each of you. No two rhythms you feel are the same. Heck when you reread the book the rhythm changes. I love reading books and how it makes the rhythm of my soul move. And this is what I work for when I write. A rhythm that will resonate in a reader. Make them become part of the fabric of the dance I am creating in my story.

Enjoy the rhythms as the story progresses with the up beats of their dance of seductions then go with the back beat of many rhythms that drives the story to the completion. Embrace the pulse within your soul as I did when I brought their story to life to share with you. I’ve been called everything from writer, author, storyteller and everything in between. I am all those things and so much more. Of all the names I’m called I like to call myself … Rhythm Maker.

Note: This has been posted as guest blogs a few placed on the web. :) But I haven’t actually made it a blog post until now. There is a page that has this too. :)
