NEW RELEASE BY CHRISTINA MOORE 4.11.14



The blurb:
Simon Temple knew when he met Laura Marshall in the third grade that he would love her forever—though it wasn’t until middle school that she finally admitted she felt the same way about him. College and career plans parted them for nearly a decade, but when Simon returned to Gracechurch to join the fire department there, it was not long before he and Laura were reunited.

For both, it was as though they’d never been apart, and an engagement soon followed. Then Laura shocked the entire town when she suddenly—and without explanation—called off the wedding two weeks before they were set to walk down the aisle. No amount of pleading on his part got an answer Simon could live with, and so he was left to pine away for a woman whom he had loved for a lifetime, but who apparently no longer wanted him.

Out of the blue, Laura is drawn into a police case being investigated by Simon’s detective brother, and his protective instincts come roaring to the surface. Will the connection between an abandoned infant and a series of threatening phone calls be discovered before the truth finally comes out, or will Laura take her secrets to her grave?


Excerpt:
“Simon.”
He looked toward his brother, noting once again that Sam seemed wary. Simon frowned. “What?”
Sam cocked his head and turned to walk toward the back of the ambulance. He leaned back against the side of it with a sigh, “You obviously haven’t spoken to Scott yet, which I’m not sure is a good thing or a bad thing.”
“Dude, what are you talking about?”
Sam ran a hand through his hair and looked at him through hooded eyes. “I sorta mouthed off to Laura.”
Anger blossomed in his chest, and Simon stepped closer to him. “What the fuck did you say?” he asked.
Sam described what amounted to a tirade, concluding with Laura’s abrupt departure, and it was all Simon could do not to punch the younger man in the face.
“You had no right, little brother,” he seethed. “What happened between Laura and me is none of your damn business.”
“The hell it isn’t!” Sam countered hotly. “You’re my brother. She fucked you up man, leaving you like that. Not even giving you any damn explanation beyond ‘It just isn’t going to work.’ That’s pure bullshit—you deserve better than that after all the years you guys were together.”
Simon clenched his fists at his sides, closed his eyes, and counted to ten in his head. After taking a breath through his nose and releasing it slowly, he looked at his brother. “Sammy, I appreciate that you were looking out for me, but Scott was right—you were out of line. I repeat: What happened between Laura and me is none of your business.”

THE NAKED TRUTH

I will be sending out your FREE short story soon.  Birthdays and life has just slowed me down but I hope to be back on track very soon.  I am excited to finish and get it to you.   The Neighbor was a story that popped into my head and I began writing it that same day.  It's fun, delicious and very sensual. Seriously, what would you do if you were in this position?  I think I would camp by my window all day long.

If you haven't read the sneak peak, go to "Free Snapshot Stories". Enjoy!

THE BEGINNING...

It's a new year and as with every year, I am motivated and pumped.  This year WILL be different.  It's my second as an indie author and I need to make some decisions.  I have a few goals and I and going to see them through.  First, Velvet Dreams, the first book in the Red Velvet Trilogy will be out in the next couple of months.  It should have been out over a year ago and for that I am still kicking myself in the ASS!!!
A Vampire's Touch, the prequel, had good success and became a bestseller on Amazon.  That should have been my big sign but instead, I wanted to try every option, got pulled in other directions and decided to start another series in the erotica genre.  50 shades was hot and I thought that was the way to go.  BIG MISTAKE.
I needed to make a sound business decision based on numbers and sales, I didn't.  I truly believe if VD had been released close after my bestseller, it may just have flown higher on the ranks.  It sure had the potential based on my previous numbers.
I have learned my lesson and I hope that readers from A Vampire's Touch will hold on for just a few more weeks.  It's been over a year and you will probably need to re-read AVT to remember all the cool stuff and what is yet to come.
This trilogy is different in that there is a unique element to these vampires.  The politics are soaring and so is the lust factor.  I plan to release A Vampire's Touch in print and have signed copies along with bookmarks as giveaways in a future event.  This is huge for me.  Holding a printed copy of my book?  Holy shit
 I hope you will stick with me on this crazy ride.

WISHING YOU A VERY BLESSED HOLIDAY.

It's hard to believe 2013 is almost gone.  Shy of two years ago, I began the publishing journey.  I still can't believe I actually did it.  This is a work in progress and I have yet to learn all there is.  I'm still adjusting to seeing my books live on Amazon!  To hear the feedback from readers is the single most satisfying thing. I'm grateful to all who have followed and stayed with me.

May your holidays be filled with love, good health and prosperity.

Dream big and reach high.
