There are some fun things brewing on the horizon. I’ll be out and about this summer signing with some totally amazing authors leading up to the release of Original Sin, so I hope to get a chance to meet some of you out in the world. I'm seriously looking forward to hanging out with Aimee, Leah, Sophie, Courntey, Kiki and all of YOU! I’ve just updated my “appearances” page (see tab above), but here’s what’s on tap so far!

And now for today’s Original Sin teaser!
Even though Gabe doesn’t have a POV in the first two books, he plays a pretty major role in keeping Frannie safe, and he isn’t exempt from her special talent, which makes things especially tricky for him. In Personal Demons, we get to see Luc's and Frannie’s struggles first hand, but I’ve always said Gabe is actually the most conflicted character in the story. What he wants and what he needs are diametrically opposed and if he takes what he wants he stands to lose everything. This teaser is from Frannie’s POV.
#OriginalSin p24 Frannie: Gabe lifts a hand and brushes his fingertips along the line of my jaw. I breathe in his cool winter sunshine and feel calmer just standing here next to him. When he answers, his voice is soft and low—meant only for me. “It’s really not wise for me to spend too much time around you, Frannie.”
