I'm out of things to post about and since Leaves of Fall is up for pre-order, I figured I may as well pimp (because that's what smart authors do) it with a teaser of the prologue.
In a small town nestled in the heart of North America, the trees moved. People halted their daily actives and stared with mouths agape. They snapped pictures and filmed video as the trees assembled in a parking lot. The trees leaned toward the cars. Their leaves grazed the metal in a gentle caress, in an almost curious way. When the trees reached for the humans, they reached back, in awe of the trees’ movements and the history they were partaking in.
At the end of the month is release day for Leaves of Fall and I need help spreading the word. If you'd like to help, fill out the handy dandy doc below and I will get everything you need for a post to you before May 17th.
Release day is May 21st and you can post anytime that week. If you'd like a review copy, you can still snag an eARC at Booksprout. Thanks for any help you give. I appreciate it.
PS: If I'm forgetting anything let me know. I'm writing this while still recovering from the vacation in England so my brain is insisting on naps instead of work.
PPS: I wrote this on May 4th, hence the Star Wars related title.
Favorite Five is something I discovered thanks to KT Daxton. They were five questions given to her by Aila Stephens to answer when she finished her book, Broken Tomorrows. I thought it sounded fun to do, so here is my latest favorite five for my debut novel, Being Human.
For Tommy, there is only one thing he needs to do: survive.
Only surviving isn't that easy. The hunt for blood can be tricky when humans know to fear the night. Desire sits on the edge of his mind, urging him to become the monster humans think he is. Vampire Forces, a special branch of police, is determined to turn every vampire to ash. Tommy included.
The only human Tommy can trust is his twin brother. A bond connects them, and with Danny's help, Tommy starts to understand the human world he struggles to survive in. He'll learn what friendships means and feel the sting of betrayal, find that sometimes the worst monsters are very human, and come to understand that family means more than blood.
Tommy just wants to survive and he knows what he needs to do. But with the number of humans that mean more to him than a meal growing, Tommy learns there's more to life than simple survival. He'll discover being human doesn't mean being a human.

I'm doing another Favorite Five. This time for Leaves of Fall, since I'm hoping it will be my next release. It's with the editor right now.
If you forgot, I found this through K.T. Daxon and they are super fun. She was given the questions by Aila Stephens to answer when she finished her book, Broken Tomorrows.
Armory has never known life without war against the nature. When she’s kidnapped and taken far from her home, her savior is the one thing she’s been taught to fear: a tree.
Maple says he wants to help her get home. Armory isn’t sure she believes him but has little choice if she wants to see her family again.
They trek across the wastelands of America. As the miles pass by, Armory learns that not all trees wanted a war. But the hatred between the two may be too deep to heal. Armory isn’t sure her new friendship with Maple will be enough to convince the human race to take a chance. But Maple has a plan. He’s just not sure he’ll survive it.
