Oh happy day….
Well, something got publish thank goodness. And this book is a labor of love. Not only does it have my favorite character I’ve written in it, it also is the first time I wrote a book with someone else.
Ah yes, my lovely writing partner Danyele (danylelejohnson.com) and I decided to write a book together over a year ago. Now first off you should know we wrote and completed the first draft of this book around the time I was writing Waiting for Mercy. So honestly, it has had no real impact on the delay publication of AOM. So it’s not this books fault. In fact, the first draft of book two was written on the summer last year. So, again, that book didn’t have a whole lot of impact on AOM.
And I should also say, that I write a lot of different types of books that would appeal to a wide range of readers and not everything I write will appeal to everyone. I know some of you it will and that’s awesome. I just want to warn you in advance that if you have a firm view against homosexuality, this isn’t the book for you. I’ll just state it like it is. I have really minor themes on gay relationships in my other books that wouldn’t bother most even if they don’t believe in that lifestyle. However, this book has strong themes in that area. Yet, that isn’t the whole point of this book either.
Alliance is a mature young adult paranormal romance/fantasy. This is strong foul language and sexual themes. Be warned. There is also as much action as there is romance. This story is told from the point of view of two best friends. Each have secrets they are hiding from the other, but one secret may tear their friendship apart. Meanwhile back at the ranch, sorry, I’ve always wanted to say that, and I quite delirious now out of tiredness…. what was I saying. Oh yeah, meanwhile, there is a war brewing that surrounds humans. Things like whether humans should know of supernaturals existence and if they should be enslaved. Yeah, there is a lot going on. There is a cast of characters that you will get to know really well over the course of the trilogy. But not all right away.
Not to give a whole lot away, but meet my Keller. (My writing partner found this picture and said she thought this was Keller and man I can’t say it isn’t a good choice.)
Keller Witmore is a bang ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy. Seeing that he is an incubus, so you can hardly blame him. In all his seventeen years, he’s never had anyone, a mom nor a dad to show him what love means. No one except for Hudson, his best friend, his brother in every sense of the word except blood. Growing up in the boarding school for demon and angel Halves, he’s known no other life. But when a war brews and the campus is closed, he will find out a lot of things about himself, what he is, who he is and who he wants to become. When it’s all said and done, can he ever go back to the way things were?
Hudson Yarde’s life revolves around being Keller’s wingman, it’s a full-time job with both it’s perks and drawbacks. Drawn into the Keller’s antics since a young age, Hudson stays to protect Keller from himself, stays to hide in his shadows, away from the spotlight. He stays to keep his secret. For years he’s been waiting for his incubus nature to kick in but it hasn’t happened yet. A chance meeting, the impending of war and being freed from the judgment and rules, gives him the opportunity to be what he wants to be, himself.
Together they leave for the human domain. Neither of them aware of the others secrets or of those around them. And for the first time, a gap could wedge between them, carved by the sharp knife of distrust. Lies of omission will draw a line between them at the dawn of the war over humanity.
So, give this one a try. IT should be on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I’ll post links in the morning, fix the Hudson pic and read through the POV I wrote for you guys. I’ll post that sometime tomorrow as well when I’m more coherent.
Chow (Ciao) for now.
