I’m just a few weeks away from launching my new book – ELI’S COMING. And, yes, I’m excited. You can probably tell by the amount of times I’ve already talked about it here. Today I’m announcing my first giveaway for this book. Want to win a signed, print copy that I will ship anywhere in the world? When the book is ready for release, I’ll pick one subscriber from my (brand new) newsletter to receive a copy! All you have to do in order to be eligible to win is to sign up. If you already have, then you’re already entered! I know some of you don’t like to subscribe to stuff, but I promise not to bother you often. You’ll only hear from me when I have news worth sharing – new releases, contests other than my regular monthly giveaways, and updates on the movie deal for this book. (No, I don’t really have a movie deal. I’m working on the theory that the universe will provide that which I am confident of receiving.)
Have you somehow missed all my shouts and blathering on about this book? If so, here’s a look:
Or so he thinks.
Amanda steals his heart, but love makes him vulnerable. He must give her up or accept who he is and fight.
Will he risk stepping into the darkness that could consume him?
And now for a teaser:
Eli grabbed a hardcover copy of each of his books from one of the shelves. When he turned to get a pen from the desk, he noticed Amanda staring at the opposite wall. She was looking at a framed reproduction of The Scream by Edvard Munch and, judging by the change in her energy, she was unsettled.
He slipped his arms around her waist and rested his chin on the top of her head. “You don’t like the painting?” he asked.
“It sort of creeps me out,” she said. “I’ve only seen the image a couple of times online. The actual painting is more intense. It looks like he’s frozen in pain. Not exactly the most relaxing image.”
“No, I guess not.
“What’s the appeal for you?”
“The eternal agony,” Eli replied. “That inner being in so many of us, unable to put a voice to the fear. Locked in a perpetual state of horror, if only within your own mind.”
Amanda twisted to face him. “You say that as if you’re speaking from personal experience.”
He dropped his arms and forced a smile. “Just a writer’s imagination. Any special inscription you think Eve would like?”
He felt her energy shifting and he wanted to rewind to the living room. He knew how to handle sexual tension. This other kind of tension flooded him with panic. He’d have to decide, and he wasn’t ready.
Back to the giveaway. If the book intrigues you, and you’d like updates along with a chance to win a copy, sign up for my newsletter below. The release will be mid to late May, and you’ll need to be signed up before then. I’ll randomly pick one subscriber to receive a signed copy!
Thank you for taking this journey with me!
