Re-entry Excerpts

July 30, 2013

The Re-entry Burn page has just gotten a huge update to include, yes, excerpts! There's one that involves the Mal's first hook up with Theo, and also an update of that flashback Mal-and-Brady one...

Brady sat down at the edge of my bed and gave me a little shake. “Mal. Malory. Wake up, man.”

“Fuck off,” I said. “It’s, like, three in the morning.”

“Two. Hey. Mal, look at me.”

So I did. He was in full eyeliner-and-hair-gel getup. I sat up, shoved him over so I could pull my legs up under me, and said, “What?”

But I knew what because his backpack was at his feet.

“I’m leaving,” he said.

So I said, “Course you are. Look, just gimme a date I can give Dad to get him off my back. He’s a pain in the ass when you do this.”

He shook his head. “Not coming back.”

“Whatever. Fuck you.” I tried to stretch out and put my head back on the pillow.

Re-entry Burn edits all day today--which means excerpt coming soon. Yee-haw.

In the meantime, here's the rest of that tease, the back of the Willoughby Spit CD. Click to embiggen!

What's the deal with this? It's packaging for a new short, as the last post might've led some to imagine. Two years after Riot Boy, where the hell are Brady and Etienne? Well, Pittsburgh, obviously. But we'll find out the rest soon.

This is going to be a freebie in late August here at the blog, but if you'll be around at AAD Savannah, look me up and grab a CD version!

Just to tease a little, something new coming up next month to herald the imminent arrival of Re-entry Burn.

CD Front:

I'll post the back this weekend. But yeah. Brady's coming back for a little encore.

Incoming Super Villain!

I am so, so happy to be able to announce that my next book will be some more Superpowered Love: Re-entry Burn! Of course, I'd be excited to announce any book, but this one has a special place in my heart. It's the follow-up to Riot Boy, following what happened to, of all people, Brady's cousin Malory.

Malory by Astro

Yeah, he doesn't look real happy, does he? He hardly ever does. Poor Mal.

A couple of FAQs so far:

1. Do I have to have read Riot Boy to get Re-entry Burn
Absolutely not. I made sure to ask at least one beta reader who had never read Riot Boy to help me out with Re-entry Burn right from the beginning (thanks Jen and John!), and it was deemed quite stand-alone. That said, there are of course spoilers for Riot Boy involved.

2. Will I see Brady and Etienne from Riot Boy?
You will see Brady in flashbacks, since Mal has a lot of, um, feelings about their childhood, but that's it. This is Malory's book! (Once upon a time, during the Erotic Romance Blog Hop, Tara Lain was kind enough to host a piece of this one for me. You can still see it here, if you're interested.)

3. Is this a rocker story?
No. Mal is decidedly not a rocker--in fact, he has a few hang-ups about music thanks to the way things went, um, sour with Brady. But as usual, there is a soundtrack involved, and it factors into the book heavily.

4. Okay, so what kind of story is it?
I'm glad you asked that question! 

... sorry that was super dorky. But I can answer! If you check out the shiny new Re-entry Burn page here, there's a little blurb and some character stats for the two main characters. Excerpts to follow little by little before the book is live in early fall.

And in closing, sorry for the radio silence lately on this blog. That's about to change--I still have that Young Avengers rant to post, too! Things just got a bit bonkers with life, but it's settling down now. ♥
