Merry Christmas--Unedited Excerpt and Cover Revel for "Roughing the Passer"

Merry Christmas to everyone out there. I hope you're staying warm and enjoying yourself with friends, family, and once the craziness dies down, a good book. Just to get you jump-started for 2014, I'm revealing the cover the "Roughing the Passer" along with an unedited excerpt for this novella due out in spring of 2014.

 
Roughing the Passer
(Unedited excerpt)
(Contains adult language)

Tyler Harris, star NFL quarterback, not-so reformed bad-boy, and dedicated boyfriend staggered into the bar and bounced off a couple tables. Steadying himself with a hand on a stranger’s shoulder, he pushed off and let momentum carry him the rest of the way. His buddies and fellow teammates looked up at him in unison. Tyler shoved one of them over in the booth and collapsed onto the cushion.

The men swam in front of his eyes, blurring and moving in ways that made his head dizzy. Why the fuck didn’t they just sit still?

“You didn’t drive in that condition, did you?” Asked his cousin, Derek Ramsey, in his usual tight-ass, follow-the-rules manner.

Tyler sneered at him. “I took a taxi.”

“What has you so fucked up tonight?” Zach Murphy studied him, as if he couldn’t quite decipher Tyler’s problem.

“She left me.” The words caught in his throat and came out sounding pathetic and strangled.

Silence as the guys looked at each other in turn, telegraphing silent messages via their eyes and body language, born of thousands of hours on the football field together. Tyler understood because he’d been there, too. Except usually those secret messages included him. Today they shut him out, and he didn’t like it one damn bit. In fact, he hated it, hated being left out in the cold, but even that didn’t compare to the pain stabbing his heart with a relentless ruthlessness, as it drove him to his knees. Figuratively speaking.

Zach, the rat bastard spoke first. “Lavender finally got a brain to go with that beauty and kicked your ass to the curb?”

Tyler tightened his jaw and ground his teeth together, refusing to respond to the insult. Murphy had gotten a little too big for his britches after he’d retired from football a month ago and accepted a position as the Jacks’ linebackers coach. In fact, he’d become an insufferable ass.

Derek shook his head in shock and muttered, “I’m sorry, man, but you had it coming.”

Fuck that, a guy couldn’t even get a little respect and sympathy from his own cousin.

Bruiser Mackey snorted his drink through his nose—he’d been hanging out with no-manners-Murphy too long. “I saw this coming a year ago. You should’ve given the woman a ring, you fuckhead.”

Tyler fisted his hands, fantasizing about how good it would feel to slam his fists into Bruiser’s smug face. Just because the asshole pretended to be happily married didn’t mean the rest of the world was that stupid. Or were they?

Looking at each one of his buddies—his partners in crime—the guys who stood by him on and off the field, Tyler got the distinct feeling they thought he was the dumbshit. Tyler didn’t like being the dumbshit. After all, he’d grown beyond that—thanks to she-who-would-not-be-named. Hell, he’d embraced his sensitive side as much as he fucking could with her insistence. He’d even given her free rein to do damage to his extensive credit limit.

What more could she want?

Like he didn’t know that answer to that question.

She wanted the one thing he just flatout could not give.

"Time of Possession" Teaser

An early Christmas present for all of you out there. Here's an unedited version of the first few pages of Time of Possession:
 
Brett Gunnels had an intimate relationship with his clipboard.

After all, that clipboard was where he played his game, not out on the football field. Every Sunday during the season he could be found standing on the sideline, clutching his worn clipboard and making notes.

Today, like any day, Brett held his clipboard and roamed the sidelines, calling out to the Seattle Lumberjacks starting quarterback when he saw something. Not that Tyler Harris would hear him or listen if he did. A couple penalties set them back to the 49ers’ forty-yard-line on third and twenty-five, fifteen seconds on the clock and out of field-goal range.

Harris took the ball from center and stepped back, staying in the pocket with the coolness and finesse of the elite quarterback he was. A second later, the pocket collapsed around him, he scrambled, running for his life while looking for an open receiver, only every one of them was covered. He never saw the guy coming from his blindside.

Brett cringed, as a 49ers’ linebacker put a vicious hit on Harris. The Seattle Lumberjacks quarterback was known for his toughness, but from Brett’s point of view, knees didn’t bend like that.

As his teammates returned to the huddle, a couple of them looked toward Harris, as if expecting him to bounce to his feet because he always did. Sprawled on his back, the two-time championship quarterback didn’t move. Not even an eyelash.

A hush came over the crowd, eerie in its silence, while a cold wind of fear blew through the stadium. Harris’s cousin and the Jacks number one wide receiver, Derek Ramsey, knelt beside him, as the coaches and trainers hurried onto the field. The offensive line huddled nearby, pretending not to stare but doing so anyway, worried etched on the big guys’ faces.

Brett might not like Harris much—not many guys did—but his grudging respect for the guy’s talent and try overrode any personal issues he might have. Besides, no one wanted to see a teammate laid out on the field like that. An icy shiver radiated up Brett’s spine as his brain transported him to another time, sand stretching as far as the eye could see, another body not moving. Nothing. Not even an eyelash. Just like Harris was now. Brett shook his head, forcing those memories back into the compartment they’d briefly escaped from.

This wasn’t a war zone—well, not exactly—and his teammate was known for his dramatics. He was probably taking a two-minute fiesta at the expense of everyone’s nerves. He’d hop to his feet in a moment and chastise them for being such dumbasses.

Only Harris didn’t. Brett couldn’t stand on the sidelines and do nothing. He ran onto the field to join his teammates. Harris’s chalky face looked like death. Brett swallowed back the fear and bolstered his courage. He’d be okay. He had to be.

After several tense minutes, Harris sat up and shook his head. The team breathed a collective sigh of relief. Groggily, he accepted assistance to his feet, only to have his knees buckle. He went down again, clutching his leg, pain carved into his usually stoic face as he rolled back and forth on the turf. A few seconds later, two linemen helped him onto a cart, and they zipped him off the field and down the tunnel.

Only then did Bret realize the coach was yelling at him. “Get your helmet on.”

Standing on the fifty-yard-line, the guys in the huddle stared at him, their faces expressionless, yet Brett read their minds. They thought he was a fucking idiot. Frantic, he looked for his helmet but couldn’t find it, until Zach Murphy, their all-pro linebacker, shoved it in his hands. Strapping it on as he ran, Brett got to the huddle, only to find the mic in his helmet wasn’t working, and he didn’t have a fucking clue what play to call.

Embarrassed, he signaled for a timeout and jogged back to the sidelines accompanied by a smattering of boos. Great confidence booster for a guy who rarely played a down during the regular season.  

Back in the huddle, he called the play, a quick out-pass to Derek, hoping to catch the defense expecting a run because of the quarterback change.

Brett took the snap, stepped back, and tossed an easy throw to Ramsey only to throw it short. A linebacker picked it off and ran it back for a touchdown. Game over.

Frustrated, Brett slammed his helmet to the turf. He didn’t glance at the crowd or the bench. Avoiding the coaches, he sprinted for the locker room to drown his incompetent ass in the showers.

Blog Tour and New Release

I'm thrilled to announce the release of Christmas Break. The first book in my "Seattle Lumberjacks--The Rookies" new adult spinoff. You can find the Buy links here:
 
 
 
Also Monday marks the beginning of my blog tour for Backfield in Motion. Click on the blogs listed below to go to that blog and enter my giveaway.
 


 



Do You Believe in Things You Can't See?

A few years ago SportsGuy and I had a ghostly experience, which I thought would be fitting for a Halloween blog hop.

It started with some record-breaking cold temperatures in the month of November, icy roads, and snow. At the time, I thought the culmination of that month would be accepting a publication offer for my football romance, Fourth and Goal. Yet, my hubbie and I had an adventure which almost rivals selling the first book in most beloved series.
Manresa Castle, Port Townsend, WA

SportsGuy and I love to take weekend trips to places within Washington state. One of our favorite places is Manresa Castle in Port Townsend, Washington. We’ve made it a habit to leave town for Thanksgiving and Christmas for a lot of reasons but mostly because my husband finds the holidays too painful as he hasn’t had the opportunity to spend a Christmas or Thanksgiving with his children in about two decades.
Room 302
So armed with a fifty-percent off coupon for Manresa Castle and reservations at the Castle Key Restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner, we drove the hour-and-a-half to the castle on Thanksgiving morning. We booked the infamous tower room for our stay. Infamous because Manresa is supposed to be haunted by an array of ghosts.

In fact, one winter during a stay at Manresa, I had a “ghostly” experience. SportsGuy and I were sitting in the bar hanging out with Jimmy the bartender late at night. The castle was relatively deserted with the restaurant closed for the night and very few if any other guests in the building. I walked down the long hall to the women’s first-floor bathroom, entered a stall, did my business, and was in the process of opening the stall door when I heard the bathroom door open and footsteps. I hesitated and listened. I didn’t hear any one go into a stall. When I’d walked in all four stalls had been open and vacant. Jerking open the door in hopes of catching I don’t know what, I looked out. No one there. I checked the stalls. Empty. I quickly opened the outer door and gazed up and down the long hallway. Nothing. And no one would have had time to disappear from sight. I returned to the bar and relayed my story to Denny and Jimmy. It seems one of the resident ghosts has an affinity for that particular bathroom, as I wasn’t the first to report strange things in there.

So back to Manresa’s ghostly history. The building was built in the late 1800s. It’s rumored a Jesuit priest became disillusioned with his faith in the early 1900s and hung himself in the tower attic directly above our room. Other reported ghosts include a woman who jumped from the 3rd floor window upon hearing her husband was lost at sea. Two weeks later he pulled into port. Also, there’s a little girl whose haunting of the castle is a mystery, though it’s rumored she might be the love child of Charles Eisenbeis, the builder and first inhabitant of the building. The castle has been featured on the Travel Channel’s show titled America’s Most Terrifying Places.

Now I’m one of those people who, while skeptical, tries to keep an open mind. My first night sleeping in the tower room was restless. I woke every couple minutes all night long. The second night was much easier, and I slept all night. We didn’t see any obvious indicators of ghosts.

We made plans to return home on Saturday, but our plans changed. Friday night, we heard footsteps in the tower attic room above us. Well, I can tell you we’re both the curious type so we high-tail it up the attic stairs right outside our room and find the attic door unlocked. Upon entering, we find a woman and two men setting up recording equipment and monitors in the attic. The woman, Datum, owns a spirit hunting business out of Portland called Spirited Away. Yes, a spirit hunting business.

They travelled from Portland to record and document spirits in Manresa Castle. Tomorrow, a group would be joining them for a spirit investigative tour. My husband, gregarious as he his, talked at length to the Spirited Away crew over the course of the evening as he ran into them in different parts of the castle.

Datum, the owner, graciously invited us to join their expedition the following night. It was an experience we couldn’t pass up, even though hubbie is a definite skeptic, and I’m not exactly on-board with the program either, but I’m open to it.

Yet, as a writer, I welcome adventures as ways to gather information for future books. This was definitely an adventure. (Hmmm... I can see it now. A heroine who owns a ghost-hunting business? A hero with an old haunted mansion? How fun.)

I don’t even know where to start, other than to say I left with more questions than answers.

We started in the attic tower room where the priest hung himself. A ghost hunting group before us had added a hanging noose in the attic just for a touch more ambiance. So we sat in a circle in the dark, about twelve of us, and took turns asking questions of the spirits. Each of us had an instrument, which I had to look-up the equipments’ names on Spirited Away’s website, as I’m a total novice. In fact, it appeared we were the only novices in this group. Many of the others toted their own personal equipment. Four of us had never done this before, me, SportsGuy, Aaron, and Liz.

Not much going on up there as far as we could tell with our inexperienced eyes, but Liz’s EMF detector did go off a few times (at least that’s what I think her instrument was called). SportsGuy held the dowsing rods, as a plumber he often uses them at his job to find water lines. His dowsing rods spun around crazily during the evening, but he never called attention to himself and told us afterwards.

From this room, we went to Room 302, where we’d been staying on Thursday and Friday night. I found this experience the most interesting as Datum introduced a Ghost Box. My totally novice explanation of what this thing does is it uses a radio frequency and does sweep and can pick up a spirit’s responses and convert them to words in real-time.

Again, we asked the spirit(s) questions. I was sitting in a location where I could see the display screen on the infrared DVR. When we first sat down, I saw glowing balls travelling across the video display several times. I looked around the room for the source of the balls. I could find no reflection from inside or outside the room that would cause these balls (I think they’re actually called orbs). They disappeared after a few minutes.

So as we again went around the room and ask questions of any spirits who might happen to come our way, I have to say I heard a couple distinct voices come through, especially a voice identifying himself as Marcus. Marcus died in modern times, as far as we could discern, and he had a potty mouth. He liked the “F” word. I know this sounds weird to a lot of you. I have no explanation for it, but I can tell you both Liz and I could recognize Marcus’s voice. If you’ve never seen one of these devices used, there’s a lot of interference, like trying to listen to a distant AM radio station which goes in and out. Yet, on a few occasions, the voice came through strong and clear. Our time in Room 302 ended when one of the participants insisted a demon was trying to come through. I was bummed as I felt it was just getting interesting. Liz admitted to me later that just before we’d stopped, she’d gotten extremely cold and was having chills.

From there we went to the chapel addition built by the Jesuit priests in the 1920s (I think). My EMF detector registered between the ¼ and ½ marks the entire time we were in this room, which were my highest readings of the night. We heard a few distinct voices, also. In fact, it appeared the group from Room 302 had followed us here. I heard some interesting things in this room. For example, when someone asked who the little girl ghost was, the reply came as “It’s a long story.” When asked if any of us had a guardian spirit, the answer was “seven of you.” Now I like the idea of having a guardian, I’d like to think my mother, father, and sister watch out for me. When asked what they missed most about being human, one answered: “Food. Eating.” He proceeded to answer questions about the type of food at length. The guy was really hungry it appeared.

Finally, no answers were coming through. I asked if they were done. Very clearly, I heard: Good Night. And so we wrapped it up at 3 am.I thoroughly enjoyed myself I can’t explain a lot of it. I’m not even sure I’d want to. I really want to thank Datum, Zach, and Christian for allowing rank novices to join them and for giving us an adventure we’ll remember for a lifetime. They ran the tour in a professional manner. Nothing struck us as contrived or created for the purpose of theatrics or sensationalism. It was all very above board.

If you ever get a chance to participate in a paranormal investigative tour, go for it. We weren’t disappointed. I don’t think you’ll be.

Have you ever experienced a paranormal incident? Leave a comment below (even if it's to say that you haven't experienced one), and I'll enter you in a drawing to win the book of your choice from my Seattle Lumberjacks series.

Cover Reveal for "Save the Last Dance"

I have the rights back to my Evergreen Dynasty Series. I'll be editing them and re-releasing them with new covers. Kim Killion did this wonderful cover for book one in the series:


Save the Last Dance

What's a girl to do when her former fiancé declares that she's frigid?Mariah Baker decides to take a jaunt on her wild side--if she can find it. The scruffy Puerto Rican leasing the waterfront house next door appears to be just the man for the mission. After all, what better way to defrost than with a sexy Latin lover? Only Rico isn't who she thinks he is, and time is her enemy.

Rico finds fashion-obsessed Mariah intriguing and unique. For starters, she makes horses dance, and his heart does its own tango for her. Besides, a hot summer fling is a welcome distraction from his depressing, uncertain future and dysfunctional, freeloading family.

As their summer together comes to an end, Rico’s phobia toward falling in love and Mariah’s insecurities are a recipe for a trouble in paradise; but in the magic of the San Juan Islands, anything is possible. Or is it?

Release/Reader Appreciation Party--April 6-7

Next weekend I'll be celebrating the release of Down by Contact, Seattle Lumberjacks Book 3 and sending out some love to my loyal readers.

At 9 a.m., PDT, on Saturday, April 6, I'll post the contest rules. It'll be easy with lots of choices: Like my Facebook Pages and follow me on Twitter. If you already do, don't worry, you'll get credit for it. Also comments on the contest post next week will also get entries. The contest will end at 6 p.m., PDT on Sunday.

I'm still thinking about prizes, but so far:
  • First Prize:  $100 gift certificate to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, All Romance EBoooks etc. (I'm open to other bookstores if I can get a gift certificate from them).
  • Second Prize (2): $25 Gift Certificates to Amazon or Barnes & Noble or All Romance EBooks.
  • Football/Seattle Lumberjack swag packs.
  • Jami Davenport print and ebooks
So drop in next Saturday and win big!!!!!
