Sneak peek of page 7 of LIKE THE DAWN (obviously unedited and subject to change) :)

“Lord Blaise,” I greet him. “How nice to see you again.” I don't mean it. At all. The guy is a total jerk and my last encounter with him was hardly pleasant but everyone is watching and expecting me to be friendly. Since I kind of need them all to like me, the least I can do is suck it up and plaster a fake smile on my face. But I'm totally imagining kicking the dude in his balls.
“Princess Mia.” He kisses my hand as he peers up at me from beneath his impossibly long lashes. Does he wear mascara? Quite frankly, I wouldn't put it pass him. “You look lovely as always.”
“Thanks.”
“May I sit next to you while we dine?”
While we dine? Dude, is this guy eighty? Then I laugh to myself because honestly, he's probably a lot older than that.
I do believe Aunt Isobel said he was 109. So technically he's younger than Grey.
I freeze when I hear his familiar voice in my mind. Everything else around me fades into an indistinct haze of just blended colors and background noise swirling around me because all I hear is him.

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. :)
