Entering 2013 with a bang... And an excerpt!

Well, in terms of writing and books, I could not ask for a better start to 2013, which is nice because I spent a lot of this Christmas dealing with an ill toddler among other things, and I got ill myself and did nothing but sleep for pretty much a solid 24 hours soon after Christmas day.

So it's nice that on 31st Dec, Releasing The Wolf broke into the top forties of the Kindle US Fantasy>Paranormal Bestseller List, and that it hit number 32 on New Year's Day :)

Today brought another little high, as it went to #20 and also entered two other lists, putting it at #1797 paid in the Kindle store:

I've never had that before, so yeah, I'm enjoying it :D  At some point it'll disappear from the lists and the novelty will wear off, so I'm making the most of it now!

And I promised my readers a little excerpt from the upcoming book two, Cry Of The Wolf (released 19th April) as a thank you, and here it is:

“I don’t believe that,” she frowned. “I don’t care if I’m a wolf – I have a mind, I have thoughts and the ability to make decisions, and all those things are nothing to do with some animal behaviour I can’t control.”
Without warning, his hand darted past the waistband of her jeans and underwear, past her pubic mound, and pressed firmly against the folds of her sex.
She gasped – tried to fight it – then moaned – tried to fight it – then writhed against him to heighten the sensation … and she had learnt over the past few weeks that her arousal wasn’t just lust-based. Sometimes, the smallest thing that had absolutely nothing to do with sex would set it off, and her arousal was also not limited to sexual heat: her hearing became aroused, her sight became aroused, all her senses; the way her surroundings stroked her skin, the way the air tasted on her tongue and carried the scents of the day through her nasal passages…
“Ooh, Ryan … god…”
“Three seconds, Lydia,” he whispered into her ear, his voice hoarse because he was as fired up as she. “It took three seconds from my touching you, to you gushing all over my hand, and the full moon’s in a week. It’s only going to get worse.”

There's more from my rough-and-ready werewolves on the 19th April ;) Don't go anywhere.

Have a great evening, folks! xxx

  1. Congrats for the awesome ranks! "Releasing the Wolf" totally deserves to be in the top categories. It was a super hot read, and by the looks of it "Cry of the Wolf," is a hell of a lot hotter.

    Needless to say, I am really looking forward to book 2. :-D xxx
