Up first, Pure (Book 2 in the Covenant Series) has sold to Kiwi for Spanish translation. It will be released in September 2012, and I'm super excited about this, because I love how they handled Half-Blood.
And on to what I know you guys are waiting for. I'm *assuming* Half-Blood and Obsidian won in their respective Fantasy and scifi rounds, which means I'm going to share some teasers. Thank you to all that voted!! I think they go up for round 2 today, but I'm not sure where or when.
So for Half-Blood, I was going to do a teaser from Seth's POV but since the digital versions of Pure are available, that's not very exciting. So I will give you a teaser from Deity. Keep in mind, this is an UNEDITED teaser.
“I’ll talk to Marcus,” Aiden said, voice gruff.
“You already said that.”
“I did?” His head angled slightly. “We should head back.”
I swallowed. Aiden wasn’t moving, and every muscle in my body demanded that I cross that tiny space between us. But I pushed back the chair, making a horrible scratching noise. I stood. There didn’t seem to be enough air in the little room with faded, pea green walls. I started toward the door, but stopped when I realized I’d left my bag on the table. I turned around.
Aiden stood in front of me. I hadn’t heard him rise or move toward me. He had my bag in hand, book already tucked inside. And he was standing so close that the tips of his shoes brushed mine. My heart was racing and it felt like a dozen butterflies had exploded in my stomach. I was half afraid to breathe, to feel what I knew I wasn’t allowed.
He placed the strap of my bag over my shoulder and then he tucked my hair back behind my ear. I thought that maybe he was going to hug me—or shake me, because that was always a possibility. But then his hand slid over my cheek and his thumb smoothed over my lower lip, careful with the faint scar over the center, even though the pain had long since ceased.
For the Obsidian win, here is a teaser from one of Daemon's POV's in the re-release of Obsidian that will be available in May. Keep in mind, these are UNEDITED.
“We got lucky then.” She glanced down, brows knitting and when those lashes lifted, I had to force myself to keep breathing normally. There was a quality to those gray eyes—a glimmer that sucked me right in. “It rains here like it does in Florida.”
I nudged her knee with mine. “I think you may be stuck with me for a few more minutes.” Really, that was a stupid excuse for not leaving. I needed something better—no, what I needed was to leave. Get up and leave, but then she spoke again.
“I’m sure I look like a drowned cat.”
I’d almost prefer the drowned cat. “You look fine. The wet look works for you.”
She scowled. “Now I know you’re lying.”
I was a lot of things. A liar wasn’t one of them. And apparently, I was also unpredictable, so much so that I had no idea what I was doing until I shifted and wrapped my fingers around her chin, tilting her head toward me.
“I wouldn’t lie about what I thought,” I said.
Kat blinked slowly and my gaze dropped to her lips again. I really, really needed to stop looking at her lips. Muscles tightened at the thought of tasting them. She’d probably clock me in the face and the lay into me with that razor sharp tongue of her.
I leaned forward. “I think I understand now.”
“Understand what?” she whispered.My unwilling fascination with her—I got it.
And that's all folks!
