Hello all! It has been a long, long, long, long week. I can't express that enough- clearly. I've been doing really well at camp but I'll leave that update until Monday. I've edited 26 chapters of The Thousand Year Curse so only four and the epilogue to go and then it's off to a final beta reader. At this rate, the book may be out by August. FINALLY!
I'm focusing mostly on the second book in the curse books, The Curse of Betrayal. I've written up to 8,000 words and hopefully I can get my act together and write another thousand today. I doubt it though because I'm sitting in my air conditioned house with the netflix ready to go. :)
To be honest, I don't really have a good teaser for you all. I've been too focused on my editing- Friday came so fast. Here's a random little part from the beginning of the story. Ryder's meeting "green eyes" for the first time.
One guy notices me and his eyes shoot up. Oh my god. He’s the green eyed man from my dream. He doesn’t move either as he stares at me, open mouthed. He starts walking towards me his eyes never wavering. I don’t have any idea what to do so I stay put, frozen. He recognizes me—he has to. His look is creepy filled with emotion but I’m not scared.
He stops when he’s about a foot away from me reaching his hand up to touch my face. He simply places his hand to my cheek as if checking to see if I am real. A sense of de ja vu overwhelms me. He leans in like he’s going to kiss me and that knocks me out of my trance. I can’t let this stranger kiss me.
“I- I’m sorry.” I whisper backing up with both hands up in warning. I do a full turn before bolting down the hall.

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
