It's an awful rainy, drafty, cold Sunday morning here in Mauritius. In the workds of Ned Stark, I too have to say that "winter is coming" (and FYI, Game of Thrones returns today! Yippee!)
That being said, I'm looking forward to SSS today, because this will be the first time I'll be sharing an excerpt from my upcoming May 7 release, and Book 2 of my Corpus Brides espionage series, with anyone else aside from my trusted CPs and my editor at Noble. Totally chuffed!
So what's Before The Morning about? You can take a peek at the Coming Soon page I just uploaded on the site, but in a nutshell, it's the prequel to my first release, Walking The Edge. The slant is more in-depth about the clandestine Corpus agency... and at the heart of this maelstrom of mutiny that is about to hit the ranks of this illustrious organization, stands a woman who has been a pillar of their operations, and who is about to slip... all in the name of love...
These are the opening lines from the book, and they introduce you to Ash Gilfoy, the hero, and a former cop turned ambulance worker. Yes, that's him in the picture. *grin* (Working this story was such a pain, I can assure you, to picture Josh Holloway as Ash... *wink*).
Thursday, July 12; 4.55 p.m.
To hell with common sense and protocol—he'd be damned if he let a woman get assaulted in front of him. His job was to provide assistance, under any circumstance.
London paramedic Ash Gilfoy sprang to his feet after he made sure his partner attended to their patient on the ground. They had already ascertained the ABCDs of the situation—Airway, Breathing, Circulation, Disability—and determined the patient was non-time critical.
What was about to happen was time-sensitive though. ...'
I'd love to hear your thoughts! Will be making the rounds on the list as my crappy connection allows me, and I look forward to checking superb words from the likes of Siobhan Muir, Jessica E. Subject, Lorraine Paton, Sandra Bunino, Christine Warner, and Jennifer Lowery, among many others.
Hope you're having a brighter Sunday than I am, peeps!
From Mauritius with love,
