Brain Ramblings From Sandra R Neeley!
Happy August my reading friends!
Down here in the South, it's happy go back to school day! Woohoo! Quiet descends on the house after a hectic summer. In my house, being the beginning of month, it's also a time to address all the ramblings going on in my brain.
So, here goes! It's too damn hot this year! What is up with the flesh melting temperatures?! My baby turned 16 a couple weeks ago, and now I'm teary eyed every time I look at her. How did she get so grown up? And, as usual, why do I have so damn many voices in head? I can only write one book at a time - okay, maybe two - people! Not 'you' people, the character people, that live in my head.
Anyway, been on a roll here in the writing cave. I've been doing a cowrite with Chris Storm aka Christopher Coyle, and let me tell you... this book is fantastic. Not because I was involved in writing it, but because it's just a truly great story. We've been at it for a little over three weeks and we're already at 86,000+ words. We are on the downswing, though, and hoping to finish up by next weekend. We're hoping to be finished with the editing, beta-ing, proofing process very soon and get it published in early September.
What's that? Could you have a peek at it? Well, of course! Here's the cover, and the blurb.
A SciFi Romance from Sandra R Neeley and Chris Storm
What do you get when you take a snippy, sarcastic Georgia peach with a huge heart and a spine of steel, mix her in with beings who’ve watched over mankind since the beginning of recorded time, and pit them against their brethren who are traveling across the universe eradicating all their failed experiments at seeding unsettled planets, placing Earth high on their list?
You get, 'Revelations: The Order, Book 1'
The Saurinai have lived on Earth since the dawn of humanity. They've been known by many names — gods and daevas, spirits and demons, and archangels from the heavens. While they may look like angels, these immortal aliens are from another world. They call themselves ‘The Order’ and they are all that stand between their own people and the destruction of mankind. Rhavele, First Archon of The Order, their leader and the most powerful of their kind, is slowly slipping into insanity, as so many of their people have done over the eons they’ve lived on Earth. The phantom that haunts his waking moments is a very real danger — if he loses control to the phantom stalking his mind, there is no hope that humanity will survive the coming onslaught.
Aurora Rose MacKay is a proud Southern woman with a strength honed by generations of women before her and a heart as big as her home state of Georgia. She’s determined to make it as an artist in the big city, just as soon as she can stop bailing her baby brother out of trouble. Until then, she does everything she can to make everyone she meets smile a little more, feel they mattered to her for a little while. She’s a ray of warmth in a cold impersonal world. Her only respite is a fantasy man she’s dreamt of as far back as she can remember. Sounds innocent, right? What could possibly go wrong with a dream? Well, finding out he’s real, and you belong to him could put a new twist on things. But one thing is certain; as long as she’s in the line of fire, he’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe.
Warning: This book is for mature readers. Sensitive situations are depicted.
