Week of Insanity? No, Month of Insanity vying for “of the Year” status

My husband made new friends in Boston!

What a week this has been!

On Sunday, we drove 7 hours from Pennsylvania to Massachusetts.

On Monday, we moved Number One into her dorm. Emerson College’s system is amazing. They’re right in the city, on Boston Common, so you can’t exactly park and unload at your leisure. You pull up to the curb, they check you in, hand out passes, unload your vehicle, and take everything up to your room while one of you take the car back to the garage.

Sunday night/Monday morning, I paid for the WiFi in the hotel. But after that, I checked my e-mail Monday night in the lobby. After that, I had no access until I got home Wednesday night.

It was awful! Because Heavy Metal came out on Tuesday, and I couldn’t be involved with the release at all! HUGE thanks to all my fellow Entangled Publishing authors for helping get the word out on Facebook and  Twitter while I was gone.

I’m not the only one with a new release! Entangled has a slew of new books out this week. Particular shout-out to the Select authors who share my “book birthday”:

Soulfight, Book 2 of the Soul Series

Samantha Ranger can fly. Thirteen years ago someone shot her because of it, and threatened her family. She ran. Now, in saving the life of a child, she’s given them the ability to find her again.

Rock Davis, a freelance spy and friend of Samantha’s cousin Alexa, is sent to protect her. But when he learns who wants her, and why, his mission is compromised by his desire to use her to save his sister and stop one man and his dangerous delusions.

Sneak Peek Sunday for March 10, with more Soulflight

Welcome to Sneak Peek Sunday! Thanks to Sara Walter Elwood/Cera Dubois for sponsoring this weekly six-paragraph sneak peek blog hop. Click here to see more great excerpts!

I wanted to feature Heavy Metal in honor of it going up for pre-order at iTunes (get links for the iBookstore, Amazon, and B&N here). But then I realized the book’s still in production, and I don’t have final approved copy to excerpt yet. :/ So here’s one more taste of Soulflight, which should be released in a week or so! It’s a little different, some insight into the villain. Let me know what you think!

The weasel should be quaking where he stood. There should be a puddle at his feet, and the smell of fear perfuming the air.

The fact that none of that was true both annoyed and pleased Pike. He hated clichés, and the scene in his head was straight from a badly written Hollywood production. Those reactions from Wallie would also put Pike in the position of intimidator. He disliked that role as well, though he did take it on when necessary.

He was not a criminal mastermind, bent on the destruction of or control over the world. He was a visionary. True, nothing would stop him from achieving that vision, but that did not make him a cardboard character.

“So, whadda we do next?”

Pike turned his attention back to Wallie. Rock Davis’s message had been unexpected. Pike would never have anticipated the man’s involvement, though now the connection was clear. Samantha had gone home—most injured animals did—and her home was not typical. It contained Alexa Ranger, who, he’d learned recently, was a former agent connected with several government agencies. Her previous employer was GenCom, where she’d been supervised by—of course—Rock Davis.

Pike had lost track of Davis over the last few years. He’d known he’d left the military, but after that his actions had ceased to matter. Well, they’d ceased to matter long before that, but Pike did sometimes suffer from nostalgia.
