Happy late Thanksgiving

Sorry I was absent for so long. Had some personal junk come up, and one of those things included hubby having surgery. I did get bored the other day, and submitted a short story, so if you're jonesing for some SS writing (I know it's been SO LONG!), here's a link to that. A Time Bomb for Christmas?
In other news, I managed to write over 3,000 words on the second Dragon Portal book (still unnamed)!!  Anywho, it's been a busy month or so, and again I apologize for not being here as often as I should.

So, I have a few new projects in the works, some shorts, some full-lengths. It's slow work right now, because I have quite a bit of extra junk on my plate (in my personal life), but I AM still working on them. If you would like to know more, follow my Facebook page: here .

There's not much else to report today, but I'll post some of my book links and stuff below for those of you that are interested.  <3 <3 ~SS

Fun times on the Facebook page

Yep, here I am again apologizing for not being on here as often as I said I would be. Sorry. You should join in on the fun happening at my Facebook page: here. I've actually been posting the Thursday Teaser on there, too (and more regularly at that). I will make another attempt at posting on a regular basis on here, but I promise nothing lol! Hope this week has found everyone well and happy. Lots of love, and HAPPY READING!!  <3

It's me again!

Sorry guys, I know I've been neglecting you. *Bad Author, no Scooby snack* Here's what I've been doing in my absence, though. As you know Camp Nanowrimo is underway, and I'm currently concocting a new book for that. I got stuck on a certain chapter; I was just really unclear where I was going with it. Got it knocked out, and started on the next one, and got some awesome character bios and monsters to go with them. And, no I'm not explaining about the monster part...yet. ;) Hoping to get it finished this month for Camp, and then off to the editors (covers: let's not even go there lol) and betas. If all goes according to plan (lmao) it should be ready in a couple of months. Cross your fingers, toes, and eyes. We'll see if that helps. Hope everyone has a great week! <3 ~SS

Here's a batman funny for you in apology for my neglect. (Bobblehead Batman says he approves of this joke lol)

Random update

Today I'm working on Deviate book 2. Making some awesome progress, and you guys will be excited to know there are some answers to all those unanswered questions in book 1. :) I'll tell ya, I like first person POV, but it sure can be limited. For example, you pretty much only know what the character telling the story knows (in some cases that's not a lot lol). Also, I have a couple of WIPs (likely standalones) going right now, too. Guess that's about it for today. Short, sweet and to the point, just like Cleo.

<3 Happy Reading Folks!

Tuesday Teaser

OK, I know I'm early, but I don't think I'll be able to post on Thursday. In other news, you should go like this page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thewritestuffauthors. There may or may not be a HUGE giveaway sometime in the next week or so. I might also have a small one here on my blog and FB page (https://www.facebook.com/sallyslayerwrites). Currently I am working on a project for an anthology that'll be out sometime either this summer or early fall. If you're a fan of The Dragon's Portal, you'll want to check this one out. It's a PREQUEL that explains some of the stuff that happened long before DP1. I am also (still) working on DP2 and Deviate2 (we may have to do a "name my book" contest, because so far I'm stumped LOL). On to the teaser from DP2. This happens pretty much right where The Dragon's Portal left off.

As soon as she exited the cave, she was assaulted by a barrage of questions. At least Layla had waited until they were alone before she started in on her though. “Are you alright Maya? Who the heck was that crazy woman, and why did she…do…um…that to Aiden? Did you see that crazy explosion? What are we going to do?” Layla laced the last question with despair. Obviously her sister was concerned for Amaya’s well-being, though it was already getting tedious to keep answering the same questions about the one subject she knew she didn’t have the heart to speak of – Aiden. With a heavy sigh and just as heavy of a heart, Amaya’s eyes finally met Layla’s concerned green orbs, and the affection displayed there effectively silenced the caustic reply she had planned.

“What do you want me to say Layla, that I’m fine – better yet, that everything’s fine and it’s all sunshine and rainbows? Cause it’s not.” She sighed again. “Things may never be fine again, ok. I don’t know. As for that crazy bitch, I know exactly what will happen to her.” The words and the slightly deranged expression on Amaya’s face sent a cold chill down Layla’s spine where it settled in the pit of her stomach.

“You know it won’t bring him back, right?” Layla’s voice was quite a bit softer this time. “It’ll only tear you apart, and besides we have a world to save, don’t we?” She tried to make a joke, which only made Amaya’s dour mood worse.

“Let’s just go. Everyone else is waiting for us.” Amaya said without feeling. “And stop trying to fix me. I’m not broken, and you know the old saying ‘if it’s not broken you don’t fix it.’” But I am broken.

That's all folks! Crud. Looks like I'm having cartoon withdrawals... Hope you enjoyed the teaser, and stick around for news of the giveaways! Happy Reading Folks!!! <3

Happy Valentine's Day

In honor of Valentine's Day, Cleo has decided to take over today. (Don't get all excited just yet.) ~SS

Happy ANTI-Valentine's Day!

I'm going to post a very very short snippet of Sally's recent work on Deviate book 2. (That's just a working title, don't worry.) She will likely be pissed at me because I'm going out of order from her prearranged plan, and it's not even Thursday, but here it is.

*unedited snippet, be gentle*

Well that would explain all the hearts and tiny cupids that were everywhere! I always hated that holiday. Even though I knew it made me sound like my paranoid crazy mother, it just felt like a sucky holiday. I mean who does that kind of crap? “Here, let me give you a giant box of chocolate (to make you fat), take you out to a heavy meal (to make you fatter), watch some corny movie (two inactive hours of popcorn and candy to make you...FAT), and then take you home to allow all the fat to congeal.” Yep just call me the anti-cupid.

Hope everyone has a freaking awesome day, and don't eat too much chocolate! ~Cleo (Deviate)

Thursday Teaser

Yeah, alright...so the whole "post at least every other week" thing didn't pan out as well as I'd hoped. I have been trying to find time during my regular work schedule and writing work schedule, and surprisingly enough didn't find much. LOL I WILL try to do better from here out, though.

Since we did an excerpt from "The Dragon's Portal" last time, I think this time we will do a quick "Deviate" excerpt. I will apologize in advance, since the main character in this one, Cleo, has a bit of a potty mouth.

*WARNING* This book may contain language or situations not suitable for younger readers.

    I stared in desolation out the window as random fields sped by. Adam had mentioned that we were going to have to take "the long way" now, but I didn't grasp that we were going to be traveling by such backwater, out of the way means. I hadn't even come across a single sign of civilization other than the random farmhouse in over an hour. My bladder was not a happy camper right now, and I needed either a nap or a mega dose of caffeine. "We gotta find a place to stop. I'm dying over here!" I wasn't really trying to be cranky, but I wasn't trying not to be either. At first there was no response from the driver's seat, and that worried me -- what if he was asleep at the wheel! After a few seconds wait -- OK, one second -- I reached over and smacked him right in the bicep. "Hey wake up over there!"
    He turned to face me, seemingly in shock from the mere fact I had the audacity to touch him. "What do you want from me, Princess?" The last word came out mocking. "There's nowhere to stop! Even if there was, we are so far behind schedule it's not remotely funny. We should have gone twice this distance by now, but NO, someone had to be an idiot and bring her phone!" He shot a cutting glare in my direction. Wow, someone's Mr. Grumpy Pants today... I could hear him continuing to grumble under his breath, and today the hostility was a little more than I could bear without enormous amounts of caffeine.
    "Dammit! OK, here's the deal. Either you pull over right now or there's going to be a huge puddle to clean up! And just what the hell's wrong with finding somewhere to stop for caffeine and possibly food? I'm starving, exhausted, and my bladder's about to explode! I don't know what your problem is." I didn't bother trying to hold back the explosion of words that came out. I was angry, pure and simple. The way he had a stupid smirk on his face pissed me off even more. Wait, mustn't think of piss...aw man it was getting to the point it was painful. "C'mon, please stop." I wheedled like a child.
    Adam checked the rear-view and both side mirrors, exhaling a deep sigh. "Fine, but you'd better learn to control your bodily functions from now on." He pulled off the road onto the meager shoulder, if you could even call it that. It was a tiny two- lane stretch of highway with hardly enough room for two trucks to pass side-by-side. However, I didn't care at this point as I leapt from the car as soon as it stopped. It shouldn't feel this good to relieve one's bladder, but it certainly did. I took an extra moment to stretch my legs; while I loved my car, it was a bit cramped after hours of nothing but sitting. As I bent down to stuff myself back into the seat, I noticed a lecherous grin on Adam's face as he turned away. What was that look; was he checking me out? This would bear further investigation. I leaned toward him, pretending it took all that movement to buckle the seatbelt. My hair slid off my shoulder, brushing his hand -- stupid hair, next time stay where you're supposed to be -- causing him to jerk it away from the armrest. "Sorry." I mumbled, cursing myself for missing an opportunity to annoy him. At that moment the radio, which had only been working on and off, crackled as it began to play "Bad Rain" by Slash. I cranked the volume up, which earned an exasperated huff and pointed stare, and leaned my head back with an elated sigh. This was such an awesome song, and I let myself finally drift back off into true sleep with the sounds of the most awesome guitar-playing lulling me quickly to dreamland. 

Well that's it for this week's teaser. Hope you enjoyed it. If you would like to hear more of Cleo's story, you can find it on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Deviate-Cleo-Perry-Novel-ebook/dp/B00EDNT1DW
Happy Reading!
