DELETED SCENE Awry (Nate & Tristan in the Kitchen)

Monday, August 20, 2012

(This scene came just after Scarlet asked the guys to use a Head Ghost on her to retrieve her memory of the fountain of youth.)

Tristan watched Scarlet's cheeks tint with fury as she grabbed her coat.
“All of you are impossible,” she said, spinning on her heel and heading for the door.
She wanted help extracting memories from her brain with an unstable memory device. Like hell that was going to happen.
Gabriel followed after Scarlet, trying to sooth her over with sweet words and promises and other bullshit that would no doubt only infuriate her more. But best of luck to him anyway.
Left alone in the kitchen with Nate, Tristan stretched his neck and shifted in his seat at the counter.
Nate stood and stared at him for a moment. “You were pretty quiet just now.”
“Yeah, well. Gabriel kind of made it clear he doesn’t want me 'interacting' with Scarlet.” Tristan made air quotes around the word his twin had used.
"Does 'interacting' involve naked time?" Nate made his own air quotes. "Because if so, I'm with Gabriel."

DELETED SCENES from Sophie & Carter

Tuesday, August 14, 2012
These deleted scenes are from the night of Sophie & Carter's high school graduation.


It’s Friday afternoon and the Littles’ school carnival starts soon.  I’m officially done with high school, which puts me in a good mood.  Carter Jax loves me, which puts me in a great mood.
Chloe and Abram thump down the stairs dressed and excited for the carnival.  Michael trails behind them with his earphones in.  He’s not thrilled about the carnival, but he’ll go anyway.  I’m grateful for this because it makes us feel like a family.

I file everyone out the front door and lock it behind us.  We make our way over to Carter’s house and I let myself in.

Carter’s dressed and moving around quietly.  His mom must be asleep.  Carter doesn’t like to leave his mom at nighttime for more than an hour or two, so her sleeping buys him a little time.

He looks at me and smiles. “Ready?”  His smile is deep and genuine, as if there’s no painful past or crazy mom.

“Yep.”  I smile back with the same sincerity, pretending my painful past and crazy mom don‘t exist either.  We’re good for each other, me and Carter. 

Behind the Cover - AWRY

Wednesday, August 8, 2012
What's in a cover? Well, to put it simply, a cast, a crew, and a whole lotta fun!

This past spring I had the pleasure of working with an incredibly talented team to capture the faces of my characters (Scarlet, Tristan, and Gabriel) and put together the cover (and other promo pics) for Awry (book two in my Archers of Avalon series).

We set up in a warehouse in Mesa, AZ at the crack of dawn with a trailer (for wardrobe changes and hair/make-up stations), some extension cords, and a truckload of set design props. And then we brought the Archers of Avalon to life.

It was phenomenal, people! Here's a video to sum up all the awesomeness that was had!

Meet the AMAZING TEAM behind the cover of Awry!
