Welcome back for Tasty Tuesday! If this is your first time, it is where I give you an excerpt of one of my books. And since it's blog tour week one for Forgotten Visions, I'm sharing a snipet. Enjoy!
She pushed the button on the steering wheel to end the call. A yawn took hold of her, and she wished she had stopped at the last rest area. Her eyes burned and she blinked repeatedly to try to relieve some of the sting from driving fatigue, while the urge to rub them strongly tugged at her. Relief washed over her at the sight of the Charlotte exit sign indicating her exit was next.
A few minutes later, a car sped by and jumped over into her lane. She gasped, heart dropping to her abdomen as she jerked the steering wheel to the right to avoid hitting the other vehicle. It was too late. Metal scraped metal as the vehicles collided. The impact shoved her car off the road. Everything happened so fast, she couldn’t concentrate or grasp onto reality. Her heart pounded furiously behind her ribcage as a rush of panic filled her. Kalissa hit the gas instead of the brake. The Benz barreled off into the woods and slammed into something hard. The airbag deployed into her face, slamming her head into the driver-side window. Sharp pain shot through her skull. A blaring horn was the last thing she heard before falling into the dark void of unconsciousness.

Happy Monday! And it the first Monday of August. Where did the year go?
I've been working hard on revisions for Death's Storm, adding details and defining the characters more. I still have to double it, but that's not a big deal. I pantsed this book so the draft is a little thin. LOL. My goal is to have it my editor by the end of August. I don't have a release date, but I can say it will out in late Fall 2012.
If you haven't signed up for my newsletter, I encourage you to do so. I send it out every quarter (January, April, July, and October) with more in-depth updates and book news and giveaways! I also send out notices such as blog tours, book releases and special events. The signup link is on the left side panel.

When I started writing, I wanted to create something different. Something unique, yet believable. I merged magic--both light and dark--with the “real world”. Witches and demons live and work among humans. Although humans know about witches, they choose not to believe in supernatural powers and they believe demons can’t break out of hell. Ignorant is bliss and all that.
For centuries, the magickin--magic born beings--communities had allowed and back up the humans’ choice of not knowing. They live in peace with the don’t-tell-and-we-won’t-ask relationship, not bringing any extra attention to themselves.
Now that peace is being threatened. Again.
The demons are back with a new leader and a new hunger for world dominance. And the Divinities are the humans and magickins only hope for survival.
It begins with Ayden and Kalissa’s story, Forgotten Visions. Childhood sweethearts that were separated by a spell fifteen years are brought back together by tragic events to fight in the war between witches and demons.

Favorite childhood memory: Family vacations at the Bradenton cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Strengths: Her love for family and togetherness, the visions to warn against direct attacks, and the bond with her twin.
Weaknesses: Ayden and Khloe
Available at Soul Mate Publishing
Kalissa Bradenton isn’t your average coffee shop owner. Born to an elite witch bloodline with a rare genetic mutation, she’s a Divinity on a mission. The death of her parents sends her away from her Maxville, Florida, home and into an ancient war between witches and demons. When childhood friend Ayden Daniels comes to her aid after an almost fatal accident, visions of a past she doesn’t remember sparks an old flame and new desires. With the past slowly becoming clearer, she eagerly sets her sights on mending Ayden’s heart and gaining his trust–until a ghost from her past returns to claim her as his demonic mate.
Ayden, the new Sheriff of Maxville and grandson of the oldest living Divinity, is investigating a series of Divinity killings. When he comes face-to-face with the one woman he hopes to have little to no contact with, old pain rises, quickly followed by anger and resentment. Through his rare power of adaptability, he learns actions from the past may not be what they seem. Hope fills his broken heart and determination pushes him to do whatever it takes to win Kalissa’s heart once more before he loses her forever.
Together they must find the strength to mend their tormented souls, while fighting an evil out to destroy the world.

It's Forgotten Visions release week!!! One more day! YAY! I'll be happy dancing for the next month. lol. Today's tasty picks up from the teaser on my main blog. You can find that here. Enjoy!
Forgotten Visions, coming July 11 from Soul Mate Publishing
Zach reached out to Kalissa, rubbed her arm with one hand, and took Khloe’s hand in his other to draw her into a comforting brotherly hug. “I know,” he said, making Kalissa look into his golden-brown eyes. “I’ll handle it,” he told her. “Do not investigate this on your own. I mean it, Kalissa. If you find something or have more visions, let me know. I don’t want you to suffer the same fate.”
He knows something.
Agreeing with Khloe’s telepathic acknowledgement, Kalissa traded glances with her sister. She pushed the thought aside, for now, and scanned the scene once more before she climbed back into her car.
A man wearing a ball cap pulled down low to hide his face stood a few feet away among the growing crowd of onlookers. There was something about him, something familiar. She narrowed her eyes, focusing her gaze on him. He suddenly lifted his head and looked directly at her, as if he felt her stare. Their gazes locked.
A scene from her earlier vision popped in her mind. This man had stepped out in front of her parents’ car. She concentrated on that scene, stilling it as though pushing a pause button on a TV remote. His eyes and the eyes of the man lookpeering back at her were similar. Kalissa walked toward him with no idea of what she was going to do when she reached him. Was this the same guy, and if so, why had he caused the accident that took her parents away? By damn, she wanted some answers! And Mr. Ball Cap looked guilty of something.
The man moved away from her line of sight, ducking farther behind the crowd. She increased her pace. When she arrived where the man had stood only moments ago, he was gone. Had she imagined the whole thing?
