Favorite Quote Friday #41

Happy Friday!  How was your week?  We have had the most wonderful cloudy, rainy days here with highs in the 80s.  I love writing to the sounds of thunder rumbling or crashing in the background and big heavy raindrops pounding on the windows.  Excellent atmosphere.  :-)  I'm making great progress on the Immortal Guardians novella, which I've decided to entitle In Still Darkness.  Even more exciting than that, look what I have!

Phantom Shadows ARCs

Phantom Shadows ARCs!  Woooooooooohoo!  I'm so excited!  If you're new to my work, Phantom Shadows is the third book in my Immortal Guardians series and will be released on October 2nd.  Just 80 days and counting!

The new swag I designed just arrived as well.  I'm very pleased with the way it all turned out.  There are three new bookmarks and three new trading cards:

Immortal Guardians Bookmarks

Immortal Guardians Trading Cards

It's been a good week.  I hope yours was a good one, too.  :-)


To celebrate the ARCs, new swag, and productive writing days, I thought I would post a quote from Phantom Shadows and give you a little taste of what's to come.  :-)  The three players involved in this snippet are Bastien (the hero), Dr. Melanie Lipton (the heroine), and Étienne (a telepathic Immortal Guardian):

Bastien gave her fingers a gentle squeeze.  "Dr. Lipton?"

Étienne sighed.  "You may as well drop the formality.  One, I've heard your thoughts and know your concern for her extends beyond that of a work colleague.  And two, I've seen your thoughts and keep coming across her naked."

Have a fabulous weekend!

    1. I'm so glad you're looking forward to it! I actually have a list of reviewers/book bloggers to whom I send ARCs, giving preference to those who have either reviewed the first two books or who participated in my last two blog tours, simply as a show of appreciation. If there are enough copies left after that, I send them to bloggers/book reviewers who request copies, but this time I'm holding back a couple to give away in contests closer to the release date. :-)
