M

I’m happy to introduce you to my main character, Miranda Preston

Age:  18

Birth Place:  Denver, Colorado

Current Hometown: Seattle, Washington

Occupation: Freshman in college at UT Austin

Major: Piano Performance Major

Favorite Piece to play:  Rachmaninoff’s Preludes, especially No. 5 in G major.

Physical Description: 5’7, 125 pounds, dark brown hair, light brown eyes, really long fingers, great legs. She recently lost a about 60 pounds.

Personality: Very quite, an introvert, but wanted to give off a new persona as she moves to a new town for college. Not comfortable talking about herself. Classical pianist. Very smart and reads a lot. In the past, she spent a lot of time alone.

Habits/Mannerisms: She rarely looks people in the eye unless she is angry and provoked. Not comfortable with people touching her. She is very comfortable being alone. Not very happy with herself even though she spent the last year working on herself and preparing herself to be normal. This idea of normal is important to her.

Background: When Miranda was 8-10 years old, something bad happened to her. Her parents moved her to another city and from that time forward, she has not been normal. She was strangely promiscuous during high school and was the SECRET (that’s not THE secret) f–k buddy for some of the popular boys at school.

Internal Conflicts: Can she every be normal while her past still haunts her?

External Conflicts: Can she build a life with her childhood best friend and still keep her secret in the past where it belongs?

L – Love and a Giveaway

LI had a short post for L, so I decided to share a give away. I would LOVE for you to win $50 and introduce you to a novel about secrets, which is the central theme to Another New Life.

First LOVE – Miranda used a Jedi mind trick to get Troy to profess his love for her:

I watched the shape his lips made when he said my name. I placed my fingers on his lips as he said my name over and over again. I loved the sensation on my fingertips. I loved the way it sounded coming off of his lips.

I loved the way he held me and looked into my eyes. I loved the way he made me feel.

My thoughts stopped when he leaned over and whispered, “I love you, Miranda.”

Did he just read me mind?

Have you used any Jedi mind tricks in your relationship?

Bound by Time

by A.D. Trosper

It’s her destiny to break the seal and his to keep her alive…

Isobel Moore is looking forward to spending her summer break alone while her parents are overseas. Until she returns from college to find her home isn’t quite the welcoming place it used to be. The stained glass window her parents installed is more than just a beautiful piece of history; something sinister is sealed within the colored glass.

When Isobel meets her new neighbor, Damien DeLuca, she discovers the gorgeous and mysterious stranger has plenty of his own secrets. Including the knowledge of what’s happening in her home.

As her world spins out of control, she unravels a past that not only tests her limits, but also everything she thought she knew. The darkness within the window yearns to be free and it will do anything to escape—including killing Isobel.
