From Me to You

Well, my Cubs won’t be Flying the W this year. Sad to say, we’re used to it. But we’ll always have 2016! No one can take that away. I waited my whole life for that. Winning this year would just have been icing on the cake. Congratulations to the LA Dodgers. (My husband is thrilled, lol. Dodgers are his team) I’m like Meh. But they did play really well.

Oh well, now I can get back to writing, lol.

I’m near the end of Willow’s Cry. Hopefully I will have it done this weekend and get to sending it to my beta readers. It is rough right now. While I write this, I’m debating whether or not to post a teaser. I mean really rough! I have to stop from reading from the beginning each day I write or I’ll never get done. Once I write The End, I’ll start going over it again. Get out the obvious issues. I already know one I left dangling.

Oh, heck, here’s an excerpt. Don’t mind my cringing, this is NOT the final version, far from it. I’m not even going to do anything other than post it. So here it is…

Alex slowed, looking around. The damage horrific. Trees ripped up and torn out. Many others damaged, missing limbs, leaves and scorched in places. Mother Nature released a hell of a tantrum. The river was muddy, rushing away debris that swirled in it from higher up the mountain. It looked like a tornado had hit. Never had he seen this much damage from a storm. Alex could feel his heart ache as it beat, matching the rhythm of weeping that seemed to wrap around him.

Alex stopped, appalled at the sight, saddened at the cruel hand of Gaia. Head bowed, aching along with the trees, Alex swore he heard his name cried. Looking up, a grand old oak stood, at least it had. Cantered over on its side, half of its roots ripped from the ground, it was held up by a cracked and damaged willow tree.

Again, he heard his name and the eerie weeping that seemed to lodge inside of him. Alex took a step forward, not knowing why, but needing to answer the call. He moved toward the tree and a man stepped toward him materializing from the trunk. Injured and dazed he reached toward Alex. Alex looked him at him and gasped. Stepping forward, he gently pulled him in his arms, careful not to injure him further.

“Father.”

“Alexander.” His name came out on a sigh from his father’s lips. “I need your help.”

“Here. Rest here and let me set up my tent.” Alex helped his father sit, letting him rest against the oak. He could see him change as he touched the tree, his skin changing to match the trunk. Alex pulled off his backpack and quickly set up his tent and sleeping bag.

“Alexander, you have to help Willow.” His father’s voice weak, thready.

“Father, let me help you first, then I will help the willow.” His father bowed his head, pain in his features and nodded. Alex could still hear the weeping echo through the trees, a sound of unutterable sadness. “Come, please. Lay down.”

“Alexander, I need to stay with my tree. If I have any hope of surviving, I have to stay with my tree.” A whisper from the man whose voice always boomed out whenever he spoke.

“I don’t understand.” Dazed, Alex sat next to him. How could this be real? “What are you? Why… how did you do that?”

What do you dream about?

Title – Touched by the Sandman

Author – Beverly Ovalle

Genre – Erotic Paranormal

 

Publisher – Boroughs Publishing Group

Cover Artist – Boroughs Publishing Group

 

Book Blurb/Synopsis

~A lonely woman’s torrid sexual dreams and fantasy partner await her as a dominant reality in another dimension~

The sandman visits those that need him, assisting them to sleep. Until one night he meets a woman that he cannot help but return to time after time.

She is lonely. He comes to her as she drifts off to sleep, the man of her dreams. Awake or asleep, which is her reality?

He knows she is the one meant for him. He will find a way to make both of their dreams come true.

 

Excerpt – 

The darkness blurred and shimmered, bringing to life a man of moonlight and darkness: Aryne.

Before him Aryne could see her, lying in bed, tears of loneliness staining her pillow. She made his heart ache. He softly stepped to her side. His hand touched her face and gently pushed back her hair. He leaned over and placed a gentle kiss on her forehead, turning her dreams from sadness to joy. Her body arched toward his touch as the skim of his hand, the heat of his skin traced the edges of her curves. He stepped back…and then within the shimmer of dreams disappeared.

Night after night her loneliness cried to him. Unable to resist, he came to her. Subtly he inserted himself into her dreams, into her arms. Aryne knew it was wrong. As a guide, his job was to bring sweet, peaceful dreams. But no one affected him like she had. He was unable to resist comforting her, drawing her into his arms, covering her body with his…but only in her dreams. There Aryne stole the passion from her lips, igniting an ache in his body that would not go away.

Touching her shattered him. He knew instinctively that her touch would be his downfall. Her touch could keep him here in this splinter of his world, isolated as all of the Outcasts were. Generations had gone by; those exiled had died long ago, their children mixing amongst the races of the universe.

He had tried to stay away, fearing this. He was adrift, swept away, drowning in her passion, breaths away from losing himself. Giving in, acknowledging the power she unknowingly had over him would condemn him, keep him here if she was unable to travel to his world. Very few could navigate between worlds. And this world would drain his power rather than enhance it. Even the short time he spent there took its toll on him, the drain only in abeyance when he was in her arms. Try as he might, he could not resist her siren call. Only by controlling her and the passion between them could he make sure that he would not become lost. Lost in her. Trapped forever in her world.

He had done his best, gentling her to his hand, to his control. She knew the unspoken rules, knew the consequences. He played them out in her dreams, a dark symphony of passion and restraint. Perhaps unforgivable for a guide, but he could not resist. And just her body was no longer enough. Eventually he would capture her heart and soul.

A man of shadows, it would be during the midnight hours of her slumber.

Excerpt:

Diary of St. Blair

First publication 9/14/2204

Introduction

by Sybille Malone Cote

 

This is my first written work as well as our world’s first published manuscript since the abolition of all books in 2100.

Before you start reading her diary, I’d like to share a little bit about my friend, a heavenly saint named Blair Carlisle.

As you read her diary entries, remember she only wanted to be a teenager first and foremost and to spend time with her friends. Blair was gifted with wisdom, insight, inner acceptance and the ability to see and communicate supernaturally.

She was, like many of us, resistant to share her talents, not knowing for certain if these gifts would ndeed benefit others.

This frustrated the Archangel Michael, because she kept him waiting. Waiting until she was ready to write down the visions for my benefit.

Michael’s patience was in short supply.

Being THE warrior angel, he had divine messages to deliver, people to protect, events to orchestrate and demons to slay. But he also understood that teenagers are often chosen and need time to develop into the great saints they are destined to be.

I have learned that Blair, like Joseph – who was sold into slavery, Miriam – who instigated her baby brother Moses’ protection, Moses himself – who eventually led Israel out of slavery, David – who fought Goliath, and Mary – who divinely carried the child Jesus, were predestined as young people to protect others and advance the faith.

 

Author Bio:

E.W. (Emily Williams) Skinner named her YA series for her second daughter,

Blair. Skinner came up with the idea of naming books after her children when

she was 15. She’s not sure why she came up with the idea.

A devoted Catholic, Skinner released the ebook version of Book One “St. Blair:

Children of the Night” on All Saints Day 11/1/13.

When Skinner isn’t working as a marketing consultant or writing, she enjoys

traveling and producing short films. Skinner is the proud Executive Producer of

Blair Skinner’s films “Relative Eternity” and “Eleanora, The Forgotten Princess,”
