Hello, everyone. I hope you had a great week. I’m sorry I haven’t been around these last few weeks. We’ve been doing a good bit of spring cleaning around the house, and I’ve been getting Marked ready to go on sale.
Today, I’m sharing from Marked, book one of my Valeterra series. This novella is a paranormal romance set in a parallel universe and is set to go on sale Saturday, June 17th 2017.
I’m picking up from where I left off a few weeks ago. This is still from Valerie’s point of view, and shows Stephanie meeting her for the first time. I technically went over the sentence count, but so many of the sentences are one-word sentences that I didn’t think you guys would mind.
“Who’s that?” my sister asked, joining me to help ensure everything was ready for when she opened.
“I have no idea, but she says she needs to talk to me in private.”
“You want me to stay with you?”
“Nah. I can take her if she tries to harm me in any way. Look at her. I can sit on her until the police come if she acts up.” I was straight up boasting with that statement, and my sister knew it. The woman had a toned body and could easily overpower me in a fight, but it helped my ego to say that I could take her.
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, one with dementia and one showing early signs of it, pretty much twenty-four hours a day, so some weeks, depending on health issues and doctors’ appointments, I might not get to everyone. I apologize if I don’t get to you.
Marked, Valeterra Series Book 1 – A BBW Paranormal Romance Coming June 17, 2017
For ten years, the people of Valeterra have watched a plague sweep across their world, killing nearly every supernatural creature in its path. As scientists from both the human world and Valeterra work on the way to stop the plague, the Valeterrian government is working on the way to repopulate their world with babies born immune to the disease.
In her thirties, single, and a bit of a bigger woman, Valerie has given up on ever finding love. She’s resigned herself to running her bookstore and growing old with only her baby sister. When a strange woman comes to her store with a story full of parallel universes, supernatural creatures, and plagues, and a proposal for how Valerie can help save Valeterra from extinction, Valerie is sure the woman is insane. Valerie’s opinion changes, though, when she loses her livelihood. Sad and angry, she throws caution to the wind and embarks on a journey that she fears will either kill her or break her heart.
Jackson lost his first mate over fifty years ago. He knows his world is in peril. He knows his pack is on shaky ground, but all the alpha wants to do is wallow in his grief. When he discovers that his second mate is a human woman who is also immune to the virus sweeping Valeterra, he has some hard decisions to make. He doesn’t want a new mate. He also knows that he can’t deny his second chance at love and the first real chance his world might have at eventually recovering from so much death.
