She wasn’t listening as her kiss moved like fire burning away the edges of paper, and Kane was about to become a pile of ash.
A secret society exists among humans, comprised of immortals and gifted supernaturals. Kane is a Sensor, able to experience emotional energy through touch. Despite his good looks and easy-going personality, Kane lives a solitary life because unlike other Sensors, he is unnaturally hypersensitive. Touch brings pain.
Fate throws him a curve ball and in a most unusual set of circumstances, Kane must make a decision, each with its own moral consequence.
Two strangers collide, and a unique link brings them closer together as they grow further apart.
Release date: December 7, 2012

I'm working on the book jacket for "Sterling" this weekend and hope to have it finished up. The big question mark is when the paperback will be available, and I'm still saying next year. Once I receive a proof, I'll need to carefully review it. Right now, I have to pick my brain and write up a description for the back. WHY is this so important? This is the part where I stomp my feet like a two-year-old. If it were sold on bookshelves, then that would be the grab for someone to open it up or buy, but if readers can see read the description on Amazon or Nook, there's no need. Buggar. It has to look professional. Pffffttt. I'm thinking of going the silly route:
When Zoe Merrick became an immortal, she discovered that not only did she have special gifts that were unique to a Mage, but she would never have to suffer through PMS again.
Bam. Gold star. Total win.
Yeah, I'm working on it.
This is what's currently on my Kindle. It's a fun guilty pleasure read, although it's going a bit long for me. I'm not sure if it's the story or the fact I have a million other things happening at the moment. I can't strongly relate to the protagonist because her maturity level is a bit of a constant, but it has some funny moments and good tension between the couple. Will I continue the series? I'm undecided. I may try out another one of this Indie author's series because it's something refreshing.
I wish I could write as many books as she seems to have out; I don't know how some of these Indie authors manage it!
Five questions on Friday:
WHAT I'M WATCHING THIS WEEKEND: "Prometheus"
WHAT I'M DRINKING: Vitamin Water (Acai-blueberry-pomegranate)
WHAT THREE ITEMS ARE NEAR ME: Flash drive, outdoor thermometer, and a salt shaker. (I swear, that salt shaker travels with me)
WHAT SONG I HOPE I NEVER HEAR AGAIN: I love Adam Levine, but if I have to hear the "payphone song" one more time...
THREE CLASSIC ACTORS I LOVE: Sidney Poitier (Seriously, I love this guy!), Cary Grant for sure, and...wow, who gets the third slot? I think it's a tie between Jack Lemmon and Rock Hudson. Comedy is so underrated, and I've always adored actors who could make me laugh, and also do the dramatic roles.
Happy Friday! Hope you have a good book in hand.
