Excerpt
She didn’t miss
the flash of disappointment in his eyes before he managed a small nod and held
out his hand. “Aye then, lass, step around me.”
Jessie clenched
her teeth, disappointed that the small bridge they had built was so swiftly
knocked down. That he was so quick to dislike her again. But that wasn’t to be
worried about right now.
Well aware time
was running out, she carefully turned, so she was facing the wall, took his
hand, and began moving. Step by step, she made her way along the ledge to the
point where they would have to share a space.
She met his pale
golden eyes and tried to ignore the flustered way they made her feel. “Are you
ready for me to pass?”
“I am,” he lied.
She could tell
by his guarded expression he was nowhere near ready. Not because he was a
coward but because he was aware of his effect on her. More so, how much he
liked it. His wariness had nothing to do with plummeting to their death but
allowing her close enough that she could pass. Feeling the heat of her skin.
So a bridge
might have been knocked down, but something else was taking its place. She
worked to steady her breathing at the quickly escalating attraction between
them. Now was most certainly not the time.
Yet she had
known this would likely happen, didn’t she? That it would be unavoidable. At
least for her. How else could it be considering the secrets she still kept?
Secrets she was foolish enough to have thought she could keep from him for his
own safety. But then she had very little real-life practice when it came to
attraction. Especially the sort she felt being so close to Bryce. He was the
real thing and far more then she anticipated.
However, now
definitely wasn’t the time for a chat about deep dark secrets that would only
upset him further.
They needed to
keep moving.
Though tempted
to close her eyes so she didn’t drown in those piercing golden orbs of his
again, she kept them open and made her move. With her hand braced on the left
side of his waist, she began moving along the front of him. She was halfway
across and directly in front of him when he touched the side of her waist,
lowered his lips close to her ear and whispered, “Dinnae move, lass.”
His words
floated through her mind. “There is a stranger standing across the way.”
“I feel him,”
she responded as her eyes rose to his. “He doesn’t see us yet.”
Though she
thought it was her breath that caught when they’re eyes met, it might have been
his. Alarmed by the impact of being this close, she nearly teetered back, but
his arm slipped around and pulled her even closer.
Unable to
breathe at all now, she didn’t look away. She couldn’t if she wanted to. “Let
me go, and I’ll hide us without him knowing.”
Unmistakable
heat gathered in his eyes. Heat and desire he warred to contain, but she saw
it…then she felt it as his arm tightened. The pale gold flecks in his thickly
lashed eyes only grew brighter with curiosity. While she could tell herself
that he simply wondered how she would get them out of this, she knew better.
His curiosity was entirely focused on the strong chemistry between them.
Despite the
waterfall’s intense spray and the fact an enemy could very well be staring at them
right now, she was human enough to get caught up in what was happening between
them. How it felt to finally be pressed against his long, hard body. 
To finally lay
her hands on the physical form of someone she had known for so long.
“No,” she
whispered, suddenly frightened as heat swept through her. “Not now. Not yet.”
She swallowed hard and shook her head, suddenly lost in memories. No matter how
real this might be, she had long trained herself that she couldn’t trust
lustful feelings when it came to him. That she should not indulge in them. “Let
me go. Please.”

 

Though her
response could simply be that of a woman choosing to reject what flared between
them, he seemed to sense there was more to it. His arousal turned to
protectiveness as his brow furrowed in determination and his grip tightened
ever so slightly. She couldn’t help but wonder if he was inherently responding
to her past. To those moments he was so much a part of without ever knowing.

Excerpt:
It was 7:30 a.m.
Monday morning. The alarm clock had gone off half an hour ago, yet no matter
what I told myself, I just couldn’t get out of bed. I should have gotten up and
started getting ready for work as soon as the clock went off.  That was normally how I did it.
Something was
wrong.
As I lay there,
I took inventory of myself. I wasn’t sick. It wasn’t a hangover. Truth is, I
wasn’t actually tired, although every muscle in my body seemed wracked with
fatigue.  I was sweating.
I thought back
to Sunday morning.  I felt great when I
got up on Sunday.  I was up early.  I read the paper, I played with my son, and
we all went to church. 
We had brunch in
Manhattan after church, and spent the warm afternoon in Central Park near the
Merry-go-round.  My son loved to go to
the merry-go-round. He didn’t like to ride it. He said it made him dizzy, but he
loved being in the presence of all the energy exuded by the kids. He feasted on
it.
Around 4 p.m. I
started feeling a bit sluggish.  It
increased gradually, and by bedtime, I was exhausted. I had developed flu like
symptoms.
As I lay there
that Monday morning, I realized it was around 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon when I
started thinking about my job.  On Sunday
evening as I prepared my route for the following day, I started feeling a sense
of dread. 
I quickly
diagnosed myself with a malaise felt by millions nationwide. My illness was
that I dreaded going to work. I hated my job.
I asked myself
“how did this happen?”  I had a dream
job.  At least it was a dream job for a
guy from where I’m from. I was the envy of all my friends. I was both proud and
excited when I landed the job a few years earlier.  Back then, I couldn’t wait to go out into the
field. WHAT had changed?
Hi, my name is
Ehrich Van Lowe (pronounced Eric. My friends call me E.) and I am a writer.
I’ve spent most of my working career writing professionally, and loving
it.  I’ve written for big publishers,
small publishers and I’ve self-published. I’ve written blog posts and articles
in magazines.
I’ve written for
the theater, I’ve written poetry, and I’ve written for TV and film. I’ve won
many writing awards including being nominated for the Emmy Award and the Oscar,
all for my writing.  I have written
bestselling novels and hit TV shows. I am a working writer who has had, and
still enjoys a wonderful and rewarding career.
But on that
morning, a long time ago, I was a twenty-three year-old nobody who had
abandoned my dreams.
 If you are a writer trying to figure it all
out, or a failed writer, or a would be writer, I wrote this book for you. I
hope you will read it from beginning to end. There are a few things I’d like to
tell you that I believe can help launch your writing career, and keep you from
years of not realizing your dream.

 

Much of what you
are about to read in this book you have never heard before.  Some of it you have, but not from me. The
purpose of this book is to get you comfortable with the idea that you, yes YOU,
can actually become a published author and make money. It’s also to give you
some tools you can use to get your writing career going, and not just going,
but going quickly and successfully.
