Rendezvous with Yesterday—Favorite Quote Friday #123

Happy Friday!!  I've had a busy, yet productive week.  My formatter has been hard at work on Rendezvous with Yesterday and has delivered a lovely print book file for my perusal.  I also made some teaser images and chose some entertaining excerpts for my Rendezvous with Yesterday Blog Tour while Sheldon got started on his character interviews.  And . . .

Look what came in the mail—my Rendezvous with Yesterday swag!  Isn't it pretty?  The other side of both the tote bag and the coffee mug features the first book in The Gifted Ones series, A Sorceress of His Own.  And the tote bags are great.  I've been using an Immortal Guardians tote bag like this for over a year now and it still looks like new.

By the way, I'll be giving some of this and more away to lucky winners in my ongoing Rendezvous With Yesterday Pre-Order Giveaway as more pre-orders roll in.  These are the prizes I've already given away:

I'm about halfway to my pre-order goal.  (I love that I have access to the numbers now as an indie author.)  If I reach that goal, I will give a randomly selected winner a $75 Amazon Gift Card.  If you plan to read Robert and Bethany's story, I hope you will pre-order and enter to win!  And if you've already pre-ordered it (Thank you!  Pre-orders are so important to authors!), don't forget to enter.  All you have to do is fill out this form:

Here's what the next lucky winner will receive:

AND, to thank the bloggers who participate and help me spread the news, I will give one randomly selected blogger an Amazon Gift Card.  :-)

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  Less than a month now until Rendezvous with Yesterday releases!  Woohoo!!  Today I thought I would give fans of both The Gifted Ones and Immortal Guardians series another glimpse of Marcus as a teenaged squire.  In this scene, he is helping Bethany (the heroine of Rendezvous With Yesterday) train with a sword:
Her breath coming in gasps, Beth called a halt and tugged off her helmet.  "Whew!  I could use a break." 
Marcus smiled and lowered his sword.  "You did very well, my lady." 
"Oh, please.  You're barely out of breath." 
He shook his head.  "Your skills are advancing far more quickly than mine did.  The other squires are envious." 
Tucking her helmet under her arm, she waved her free hand.  "You're just saying that because you heard me tell Robert that flattery would get him everything." 
He laughed.  "Were I to admit to such, my lady, Lord Robert would have my head." 
"Among other things."  Grinning, Beth motioned to the mass of sweating, straining, grunting bodies to her right.  "Go find yourself another victim while I rest for a bit." 
"As you wish."
Have a wonderful weekend!
