Hey, everyone. I’m sorry I didn’t get to everyone’s posts last week. I had a stomach bug, then my husband got the flu or something like it. Between that and the in-laws’ doctor’s appointments, I’ve had a long week.
Today, I’m picking up from where I left off last week. https://jennifer-reynolds-thzu.squarespace.com/new-blog/2017/3/19/snippetsunday-excerpt-from-marked-valeterra-book-1-coming-soon The novella that I’m sharing from is book one of my Valeterra series, titled Marked. This novella is also a paranormal romance set in a parallel world. I’ve sent it to my editor for its first round of edits, and my cover artist will be starting the cover this week.
The following is from Jackson’s point of view. He’s told Stephanie that if going to ask others to volunteer, he should volunteer as well.
She watched me closely as she spoke, looking for any shift in my behavior or scent that would tell her the reason for my suddenly summoning her to my office to tell her that I was volunteering for a program I had originally planned to stay out of except in an advisory capacity.
“I know you’re worried that I’m not over Alexis’ death. Your sister was an amazing woman, and I’ll always love her, but I think this is something I have to do. I’m one of the oldest members on the committee now with so many of us gone. Only the young alphas have volunteered. If we’re going to get more volunteers, I’m going to have to step forward. Besides, the chances of one of these women being my mate are low,” I said, nodding to the stack of files.
I was lying, and Stephanie knew it.
That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for stopping by. If you want to read more excerpts from other authors or if you want to join in the fun, stop by the Snippet Sunday FB page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SnippetSunday/
***Side Note**** I’ll do my best each week to read all the post, but I take care of two older adults pretty much twenty-four hours a day (as I mentioned earlier), so some weeks, depending on health issues and doctors’ appointments, I might not get to everyone. I apologize.
