Back from the dead!

     So, I bet you thought I fell off the face of the earth.  And, really, I did for a few months.  Life happened and it was a crazy, busy, full of stuff time.  But, and that's a big but, I didn't forget about you guys.  I've been faithfully writing, although a little slower this time.  I want you to know that Book 3 of the Ghost Virus Series, titled "Sting", is in progress and I anticipate a release this year yet. 
     As far as the website....*sigh*, it was sadly a hard lesson learned.  I definitely am working on a new website but the company I chose to go with before was not what I thought.  So, I cancelled.  And here I am, months later, letting you know I haven't died or moved to a remote country.  Nope.  Just been doing life. 
     So, get ready.  Refresh your memories.  Anticipate the hype.  Because Sting is coming!!!  And it's going to blow your mind.  Twists, turns...things you just never even expected.  I'm excited and I hope you are too!!  And below is a picture of the cover for Sting.  Just to give you a taste of the awesomeness that is coming!  I'll try not to let so much time go in between updates this time!

Amazon Author Page

     Hey guys!  It's been awhile.  I hope you all have been enjoying Metamorphosis.  What do you guys think?  I'd love to hear from you. 
     I'm just checking in real quick to let you know I'm working very hard on Book 3.  I've finally selected a title and will probably be doing a reveal once I get the book cover ironed out.  Book 3 is amazing so far!!  I'm absolutely loving writing this book.  There are so many twists and turns that I wasn't even suspecting. 
     Also, in other news, I'm working on a website.  It's slow going since I'm learning as I'm putting it together.  Hopefully, I'll have it up soon.  I have successfully completed an author page with Amazon.  So, now all my books, links to my Twitter account and this blog are all in one place!! 

Here's the link for my author page: 

     Go check it out and follow it!!  It will update you on all things Skyla.  :)  Well, back to work and I'll be chatting again with you soon!!

The End of the Beginning...

     It's hard to believe that we are here at the end of the beginning!!!  Within the next week, you should have Metamorphosis cradled in your hands while you snuggle up in your favorite reading spot.  I can't wait to hear what your favorite parts are!! 
    Well, let's get to it.  Here's the last teaser for Metamorphosis.  Enjoy!!

“What’s an avalanche?” I start to ask, but then, the wave of snow headed our direction comes into to view.

“Run!” Jey screams, pushing me into motion.  “Run and don’t look back!”

Digging deep, I push my strained muscles, daring them to give out on me now.  The once quiet rumble is now a deafening roar, accented only by the sound of cracking trees as it levels the landscape behind us.  In the distance, I spot the end of the ravine we’re in.  If we can make it there, the snow will spill out sideways instead of being caged in one direction.  That is our only chance.

I quickly glance in Jey’s direction.  He’s right behind me, legs and arms pumping at full speed through the snow.  I would try to tell him my plans, but I don’t think he’d hear over the rushing snow. 

Pretty soon, I can feel the ground shaking underneath my feet.  The snow starts to shift and slither underneath my feet.  I scramble to keep myself upright.  A few more minutes will find Jey and I buried alive.

We reach the edge of the ravine when the snow catches us.  It flies upwards and outward as it breaches the confines of the mountains, flinging a massive wave of snow everywhere.  I barely have time to cover my face before it drenches me, like white powdered rain.  Suddenly, I immersed, encased in a tomb of freezing cold snow. 
     Brrrrr!!!  I guess I'm subconsciously already getting ready for winter.  Have a good week guys and Happy Reading!!  Next time I post, you will have a link to Metamorphosis!!

     Things were so busy last week!!!  I was on my bi-annual writing retreat and finished up a bunch of editing on Metamorphosis.  I'm almost ready to share it with the world!!  Are you ready?  I feel like it's Christmas in October! 
     So, this next passage is from one of my favorite scenes in the whole book!!  I cannot wait for you guys to read the whole thing but here's a sneak peek.

“Skyla?” Jey’s voice breaks through the darkness.  “Can you hear me?”

“Yes,” I grumble but don’t open my eyes.  There’s a strange swirling sensation that is making me quite nauseous. 

“Can you stand?”

“No,” I groan.  My stomach’s churning now.

“Did you eat something while I was gone?” Jey prods.

The very thought of eating makes me gag.  “Butterflies,” I say through clenched teeth.  I remember eating butterflies; sick, morbid, black butterflies that are now swirling around in my stomach.

“You ate butterflies?” Jey repeats. 

Didn’t he see them!?  How could you miss a whole flock or whatever you call a huge mass of butterflies? 

“Did you eat anything else?” he asks curiously.

A rush of heat spills through my body and I barely manage to sit up before I empty the contents of my stomach all over the ground and myself.  Groaning, I lie back down.

“Mushrooms,” Jey whispers almost to himself.  “Oh, Sky.  Why’d you have to go and eat those?”

     Hehehehe....I'm laughing because I know where this scene ends up.  Oh, how I love suspense!!  Anyhow, have a good week y'all and Happy Reading!!  I'll see you in a week!!
