"Relax, I've got this..." (an excerpt from HARDER WE FADE)

Here's a teaser from the upcoming new installment in the FADE series. As with all early excerpts, this is a rough draft version. When the final edit is done, this will very likely undergo some changes, but lots of people are asking for snippets/teasers/excerpts/etc., so I wanted to share something with you, and here it is....

HARDER WE FADE

Amazon UK

Excerpt (This takes place in the offices of the movie production company, where Olivia is now working with Max.)



Max came into my office and closed the door behind him.

“Are we ordering in?” I asked.

Earlier, we had discussed going out to eat, but it looked like he wanted to stay in. I just had no idea why, at the moment.

“I already have,” he said. “It should be here shortly.”

“Good. I’m starving.” I was looking down at my desk again, going over the storyboards. “Some of these don’t match up with the script.”

He didn’t say anything, and I didn’t look up to see why.

“Did you change some of these?” I asked.

“You don’t have to do that, Liv.”

“I know, but I started to look at them and the changes…I don’t know. They’re not right.”

Max was the epitome of perfectionism when it came to making sure the script was right and all the actors had the final shooting version. But he didn’t seem to care at the moment, which I found strange.

I looked up.

As he came around to my side of the desk, it was one of those times when the sight of his physique struck me as though I were looking at him for the first time. The way his casual, untucked, dark blue shirt clung to his shoulders and muscular arms. The way the buttons begged to be unfastened to reveal his smooth, firm chest. The way his beige linen slacks hung perfectly from his waist….

Max held out a hand and I took it, rising at his urging.

He pulled me into his arms, kissing me in a teasing way, nipping at my lips and finally taking my tongue into his mouth and sucking on it.

When his lips moved to my neck, I said, “I thought last night would have been enough to tide you over until at least tonight.”

“Not even close,” he said, his breath hot on my throat. “Do you want me to stop?”

“What it matter if I said yes?”

“No,” he said.

He held me tightly, possessively, and turned me around to face the window. Outside, people walked down the sidewalk just feet from my window, separated only by a short hedgerow of shrubbery, and the faintly tinted window of my office. It wasn’t completely darkened, so passersby could see in if they looked hard enough.

The bustling crowds of people on their way to lunch or meetings or sight-seeing moved quickly down the sidewalk, not appearing to have the slightest hint of what was going on behind that tinted window, but if someone stopped and looked for more than a few seconds, they would easily be able to make out my hands pressed to the glass, probably my face, and maybe Max standing behind me, too.

“I think they can see,” I said.

Max lifted the back of my skirt but didn’t say anything.

“Max…”

I felt his erection straining against his fine linen pants as he pressed his body to mine.

“Relax,” he said in a stern whisper. “I’ve got this.”

HARDER WE FADE

I'm thrilled to announce that the new book in the FADE series will be released on July 17, 2013. It is now on Amazon and available for pre-order at just 99 cents!

Now, the FADE series continues…

About the new FADE book....


Some background for readers who are new to the FADE series: when first released, it came out in three parts. FADE INTO YOU, FADE INTO ME and FADE INTO ALWAYS. Each installment was around 20,000 words. Not long after the third part came out, all three were combined into one novel-length ebook and paperback called FADE. That is the only version available now. (And the price is the same as if you had bought all three separately when they were for sale.)

The original edition of FADE ended with a short epilogue that is set two years after the book ends, giving a few details of what happens to some of the main characters in the book, as well as where Max and Olivia are at that point in their lives.

The epilogue in the new edition is even shorter, giving very little away. If you bought FADE after April 2013, you probably haven’t seen the slightly more detailed epilogue, so none of this will matter to you. If, however, you do have the edition with the slightly more detailed epilogue, you only know a few “big picture” facts. You don’t know how those things came about, though, or what Max and Olivia had to go through to get to that point.

Since FADE was published, I’ve received literally thousands of emails, Facebook messages and tweets asking for more about Max and Olivia. I didn’t want to write about them just for the sake of it, so I was reluctant, and wrote LAYOVER RULES instead.

Writing about Max and Olivia again would hinge on whether I thought there was a story worth telling, and whether there was enough about their characters to explore in a new book.

After much consideration in the seven months since FADE came out—and some sporadic writing about them—I've decided to go forward with a new book, and it will be released this summer.

Thank you for reading,
KD

FADE series now in audio

The FADE series is now out in audio!


Like the paperback, and the more recent ebook release, this is the entire FADE series together -- not the three separate parts as it was first published.

This is my first experience with having a book in audio format. The reader did a great job, but I have to admit it's a little surreal hearing someone else read the words you wrote. I can only imagine what it would be like to hear and watch your words being spoken by actors on the screen. Maybe someday I'll find out....

First post of 2013

Yeah, that's right. This is my first post of 2013, so needless to say I've been a major slacker when it comes to adding content here. But I have my reasons.

I've been traveling on my private jet a lot, and only recently got wi-fi installed. You'd think a private jet would just come with it, but no, it's an "add-on," like floormats in a new car.

Okay, that's a lie. I don't have a private jet. But now I'm wondering -- do new planes have a smell like the new car smell? Hmmm.

What I have been doing is writing. A lot of writing. Probably even some writing that I shouldn't be doing.

I've been working on a new novel (which is not a continuation of the FADE series) and got a little side-tracked when my brain decided that the best time to come up with some great ideas for the next book is right in the middle of the one I'm currently working on.

So I took a week or so to work on fleshing out some of the characters and ideas for the book I'll work on sometime after this next one is released.

I've managed to refocus on the book I should have been writing all along, and I'm happy with how it's going so far. I'm looking forward to introducing my new characters, Blair and Simon, to everyone.
