Yet another FQF for your Good Friday enjoyment!
Fuzzy socks or heels?
Fuzzy socks
Loud music or quiet music?
Loud (I have music playing as much as possible!)
Realistic or fantastical movies?
Hot chocolate or apple cider?
Hot chocolate
Watching your readers’ reactions to your characters’ deaths or imagining their reactions while writing the deaths?
Watching…or as the case usually is…a text.  My favorite text: “  You made tears come out of my eyes and go down my face.”   Do not worry, she has since recovered, and is speaking to me.

What? Authors “fangirl” about other authors?

Of course authors have their favorites! They read, don’t they? One of Robin Woods’ favorite authors, Cassandra Clare (author of the Mortal Instruments series and the Infernal Devices series), recently hosted a signing nearby, and Ms. Woods got to meet her and get several books signed! Sarah Rees Brennan (author of the Demon’s Lexicon trilogy) was also there. Ms. Woods had a blast!

New Teaser from The Fallen

Posted: March 17, 2013 by trudreamr in Teasers from The Fallen

Please know that, as you are one of the first people reading this, the draft may undergo changes before publication.

Gabriel sat in the swivel chair in front of the monitors and spun around to face me. “What happened?”

“Which part? The part where I got the crap kicked out of me? Or the part where I woke up somewhere else being questioned?”

Gabriel raised his brows not amused.

I groaned and dropped my head into my hands defeated.

Book 4!

Posted: March 11, 2013 by trudreamr in Book News, Teasers from The Fallen

Recently, Robin Woods posted an excerpt from what she says will be a book four (and possibly five)! The tentative title of the fourth installment is The Fallen. Publication will likely be sometime in 2014, as there is still lots of work to do before the release of Allure, a Watchers series prequel.

Here is a teaser along with this exciting news!

For a long moment, Bowen stood silently in front of me looking lost. Something in the energy between us changed; I held my breath as he slowly leaned in and gently brushed his lips across mine…once…twice…three times. Then he kissed me. His lips were soft, and I was barely able to keep my knees from giving out. My hands inched around his waist, feeling the hard muscle moving beneath his skin, as he twisted his hands in my hair and pulled me closer. I ached for more. Involuntarily, a soft moan escaped me as the kisses grew in intensity.

His breath uneven, he broke from my lips long enough to murmur in my ear. “I have longed to kiss you freely for the last three years.”
