Tonight I sent out the first ARCs of The Ripple Effect. To say I'm a nervous wreck is an understatement. I'd promised copies to a few folks who've been by me since the start, and I'm terrified of what they'll think. Will they love the book? Hate it? Only time will tell. Due to this, I'm going to be offline as much as possible.
Although I'm extremely proud of the book, I'm also afraid. But let me say this: Not is all what is seems. AT ALL. Don't believe what you're given. Not entirely. Things are going to change in a huge way. Hopefully (if sales are good) all will be revealed.
On a positive note, I'm sharing something from *gasp* Disco! It's the only thing the bastard has EVER given me when I've tried to write him. I've begged and pleaded, but this is all he's said. So if you want to know how he feels about Rhiannon here you go! July 31st is fast approaching. I hope you'll help me celebrate by purchasing a copy of The Ripple Effect (I'll be back to announce the winner of the release day contest on release day -- doh!).
Without further ado:
~ Gabriel Trevellian's Journal ~
Every man has a devil. The seductive creature on his shoulder who tempts him to reveal more than he should, to rend himself open. Despite everything he knows, even if he comprehends the danger, the devil always manages to overcome reason, to disillusion and distort logic. Compulsive urge is tempered by impulse. Do as you will. Take what you want. Live in the moment. Love with no boundaries.
Even as the world as you know it crumbles around you as a result.
I know this because I am a man trapped by bars of my own making, in a prison that cannot be seen. When my downfall looked me in the eye for the first time, I was doomed. For the devil didn't speak from my shoulder, whispering sweet enticements in my ear. This time, my reaper came in a form I could see, touch, and smell. Beautiful, soft, and delectable. Defiant, rebellious, and fierce. Bruised, untrusting, and wounded. Everything I didn't know I needed wrapped into something I never imagined I would desire beyond reason.
Sweeter than Heaven. Dangerous as sin.
Her name is Rhiannon Murphy.
July 31st is almost here. Mark your calendars. Let's *celebrate!!
*Or in my case take mass quantities of drugs because I can't take the pressure. Either way, let's Par-Tay!
