What’s the last book that has kept you up all night reading under the covers?
I’m not even sure I should admit to the number I’ve nights I’ve spent huddled under my covers, with a book light shining away as I devour chapter after chapter (Note: can I just say *thank you* to Amazon for finally adding a backlight to the kindle? Saved me a fortune in those little 2032 batteries…).
I’m a reader first, and a writer second. Always have been and always will be. Because of that, there’s nothing more exciting than getting sucked into a book and the need for sleep being completely subsumed by the need to read just one. More. Chapter.
I vividly recall reading TRUTH by Aleatha Romig the day it came out. It’s not a short book, which is why I was still up until 6 AM reading. I should have been sleeping that night, because I needed to be up, showered, and ready to head out to a 7 AM meeting. Well … let’s just say I still made the meeting—after skipping the shower and throwing my hair into a seriously questionable bun. I spent all damn day thinking about that book and the mindf*ck of a trip it’d taken me on.
At that time, I was halfway through writing my first novel, wondering if it was really worth finishing. It’d started out as a lark, a hobby, a childhood dream that I was dabbling in. But something in me changed that night I spent with Aleatha and her Tony and Claire. Something clicked. I had a new goal on top of just finishing my own novel. Now I wanted to write a book that might keep someone else up all night. A book that might draw a reader in and keep her glued to the page until 6 AM and she decided that having a bad hair day was totally worth it because getting to ‘The End’ was way more important. That’s my motivation for every book I write, and it’s all thanks to Aleatha Romig and the dozens of other amazing authors to whom I’ve happily sacrificed nights of sleep to devour their stories.
COMING FEBRUARY 12, 2015!!
I’ve always known she was too good for me, but that never stopped me from wanting her.
And then I finally had her for one night.
A night I don’t remember.
I figured I’d blown my shot.
But now she’s walked back into my life, and this time, I have the upper hand. I want my second chance.
Will she be able to see the man beneath this ink?
Did you read book 1 yet?
