Teaser from In the Shadows (Lark #2)

Disclosure: This is still a work in progress BUT I haven't blogged in a while so I thought I owed you guys! This excerpt could of course be changed and will of course be edited eventually but I hope you can look past all of that and that it makes you smile. :)
Gotta love Mia....

Grey just shakes his head no and goes back to ripping his roll into shreds. I’m not going to lie, that kind of irritates me. Those rolls are freakin’ delicious and he’s just wasting it.

“I’m guessing we’re working the same shifts again this weekend?” I ask.

“Of course,” Grey looks up at me. “Why wouldn’t we?

“I was just checking.” And trying to make conversation to avoid any unnecessary awkward silences, while at the same time trying to distract myself from the way you are viciously mutilating that buttery roll of goodness.

Jacoby’s laughter echoes from across the cafeteria and I know without a doubt that he heard my thoughts. I look up and return his smile with a shrug. What can I say? I really like those rolls.

    1. I think it would be terribly difficult to censor your thoughts constantly which definitely sets Mia up for some pretty embarrassing times and I love writing them! It's so fun!

    1. There isn't a "set in stone" date but it will be out later this year. When I am finished writing it (which should be by the end of the month) I will have a more definite date. :)

New Job

In February I was offered a position at the local high school working with Seniors who are at risk for not graduating on time. It's only a part time job which I thought was perfect because I'd still have time to write during the day.

Well, it's true, I still have had time to write but it's been at a much slower pace. Which is fine. I had decided this year to focus on balancing things in my life better, and well, not staying up until 3 in the morning writing every night seemed like a pretty good place to start.

And it's been GREAT!

I love working with the students. I was kind of surprised that I love it as much as I do. I always figured I'd be more of an early childhood or elementary kind of person but nope, this is the population I was meant to work with.

Which I guess sort of makes sense--I do WRITE Young Adult stories after all. :)

Here's the thing, most of these students haven't had the best support systems in their lives. Not all of them, but I'd…
