THE WARRIOR Blurb

Here’s the blurb for THE WARRIOR, just to torture those of you who are waiting… ;)

THE WARRIOR
Book Five of The Alignment Series

Captive in the Moore estate, Sloane Bevan sees an image that evokes her grandmother’s warning: When the moon aligns with the oak, a danger will come for you. To her family she’s a warrior. To the Moores a destroyer. But she holds knowledge of magic the Moores lost, knowledge they want to extract before they kill her.

Rex Moore is out of patience. He has trained his whole life to battle and end Sloane Bevan. Now she’s in his house and his family has ordered him to wait. This is the first order he’ll defy, the last order they’ll give. Once he kills Sloane, the Bevans will fall and he will claim his birthright as king.

To end the age-old war between their families, one must destroy the other. Sloane and Rex understand their destiny, but no one predicted the larger battle they walk into. The mutual enemy they unveil. And the impossible allegiance necessary to survive it.

Editing is finished. Files have been sent off for formatting. I really have no idea how this is moving so quickly and easily. Bevan magic maybe? If it is, I hope it’s Sloane’s, not TB’s. Because I refuse to jump off any cliffs into any rivers.

THE WARRIOR Update – October 22

THE WARRIOR is surprisingly on schedule. I just sent it off to the final editor. And I’ve seen a draft of the cover, which symbolizes the book so perfectly. Movement, beauty, violence… it’s breathtaking. I’m waiting on one final tweak before I can reveal it.

THE WARRIOR Update – October 13

First round of edits of THE WARRIOR are back and I’m about 50% through them. If all goes well, in about a week these edits should be finalized. The book then moves on to the next editor for the line edit/proofread. I’ve also submitted the book to my cover artist. First drafts of the front cover are due in a few days. (Eek!! Can’t wait!)

THE WARRIOR Update – September 23

I sent THE WARRIOR off to my editor about an hour ago. Final revisions added about a thousand words to the count. I could seriously revise and perfect for the rest of my life but at some point I have to call it because I DON’T WANT TO REVISE AND PERFECT THIS THING FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. lol

It’s perfect timing, too, because Penned Con is in one week and I have a couple hundred of TB’s special dissolving cubes to wrap in brown paper and tie with string. Come see me there and you can help yourself to one. ;)
