In the craziness that has become my life, I’ve neglected this blog. I aim to change that!
I’ve been considering adding a few chapters of each of my newest projects, so that my readers get a glimpse of what’s to come. This would include the revamped Hardship & Devotion and the new works: Unexpected Choices, The Irish Bred Series, and The Mystical Forest Series. Why go through all this trouble?
As I work on these works, I’ve found that with my excitement in writing them, I have a need to share just a little bit of them. I hope people become as excited about them as I am. Many authors have done just this, or in the least, shared their thought process as they revised and edited their works. I get a kick out of reading their posts and I’d like to do the same for all of my followers. To ensure that I don’t give too much away on either novel, I’ll only be showing off the first two chapters of each work. I’ll be doing this in the beginning of the New Year of 2014, so keep an eye out! 🙂
I don’t have a name for this trilogy quite yet, but it’s going to be an adult paranormal featuring Irish Weres (Werewolves). I have been doing so much research for this project, and while I was researching Irish Gaelic, I came across Celetic Wedding Vows that I found to be absolutely amazing!
You cannot possess me for I belong to myself. But while we both wish it, I give you that which is mine to give. You cannot command me, for I am a free person. But I shall serve you in those ways you require, And the honeycomb will taste sweeter coming from my hand. I pledge to you that yours will be the name I cry aloud in the night, and the eyes into which I smile in the morning. I pledge to you the first bite of my meat and the first drink from my cup. I pledge to you my living and my dying, each equally in your care. I shall be a shield for your back and you for mine. I shall not slander you, nor you me. I shall honor you above all others, and when we quarrel we shall do so in private and tell no strangers our grievances. This is my wedding vow to you This is the marriage of equals.
I have decided to include this in the trilogy, but that’s all I’m willing to share at this time! 😉
