Seconds Before Sunrise

7 Oct

So you’ve read Minutes Before Sunset, and you’ve been wondering: where is Seconds Before Sunrise?

Well, I’m here to tell you. ctbr

As of now, AEC Stellar Publishing, Inc. is still expecting to release it this Fall (Sept. 21 – Dec. 21) and I will let you know if this changes. The cover is currently under works, and the ARC is going through an editing process. I’ll be sure to announce when I need advanced readers for reviews and interviews. But, in the meantime, I have done a lot of updates to prepare for the arrival of Seconds Before Sunrise (Book 2 of A Timely Death trilogy.) And here’s two you might want to know about:

1. The Minutes Before Sunset FB page has been renamed to A Timely Death Trilogy to support all three books. 

2. Seconds Before Sunrise now has a page on this website. Click here to visit itI’ll be keeping it updated with the latest information, but you can read the latest synopsis here:

“In this second book of the Timely Death trilogy, Eric is forced to face his destiny without Jessica by his side. But Jessica’s new nightmares could be the key to his survival.”

She was undoubtedly a shade, but I didn’t know her.

Eric Welborn isn’t completely human, but he isn’t the only shade in the small Midwest town of Hayworth. With one year left before his eighteenth birthday, Eric is destined to win a long-raging war for his kind. But then she happens. In the middle of the night, Eric meets a nameless shade, and she’s powerful—too powerful—and his beliefs are altered. The Dark has lied to him, and he’s determined to figure out exactly what lies were told, even if the secrets protect his survival.

He had gotten so close to me—and I couldn’t move—I couldn’t get away.

Jessica Taylor moves to Hayworth, and her only goal is to find more information on her deceased biological family. Her adoptive parents agree to help on one condition: perfect grades. And Jessica is distraught when she’s assigned as Eric’s class partner. He won’t help, let alone talk to her, but she’s determined to change him—even if it means revealing everything he’s strived to hide.

And excited things have happened! I’ve received another author review:

“Creative and well written, ‘Minutes Before Sunset’ keeps the reader intrigued and anxious for the sequel. Love it!” – T.L. McCown, author of Shifting Sands.

While this was happening, I also did another interview with upcoming author, Amber Skye Forbes, and that can be read by clicking here.

It’s official. I’m dancing around the room with my fat cat, Bogart. He’s excited. (I can tell by his lack of begging for food.) I’ll be close to the computer (as usual but even more so) this week, so don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail or ask a question in the comments section. I’ll get back to you right away! If you’re interested in an interview or planning on reviewing Minutes Before Sunset, let me know! I will link them to all of my websites!

In the mean time, I hope you’re enjoying reading Minutes Before Sunset as much as I enjoyed writing it for everyone!
