Missing Brennus? I can understand that, since he's on my mind (and in it) constantly. I found a song that is Brennus: BABY CAME HOME by THE NEIGHBOURHOOD. I was asked (more like begged) to give a Brennus teaser, since I've posted a teaser with Reed. (Apparently, Brennus fans are feeling slighted.) I can give you one, but it may be less satisfying than the other teaser I did because it will be REALLY, REALLY short. (Only a few lines.) I really don't want to spoil anything for you, so it will be just a taste. I'll leave it up to you to decide if you want to read it. I'll put it at the end of this post.
I have the LCCN # for Incendiary. I uploaded the manuscript to CreateSpace last week. They contacted me to set up a consultation for the interior formatting. I usually skip the consultation for the interior, preferring to trust that they'll just analyze the first three books and do it the same way. That didn't work out so well for me the last two times I asked them to do it just like Inescapable, so I'm going to go over every point with them. Why is that important? If I can get them to do it right the first time, than I save myself weeks of going back and forth with them. Although the corrections don't cost me money when we're working it out, it costs me time. Every time I make a correction, CreateSpace is allowed seven to ten days to make said correction. This is where I lose months. I hate losing months. So, if you know how you want them to format your book, definitely tell them. My consultation is on Monday (tomorrow) at 11:30 a.m. so don't call me then because I will be on the phone hashing this out. :D After that, it can take a couple of weeks to get the first proof.
Okay, that's really it as far as the update goes. Consultation tomorrow, proof in a couple of weeks. Now for the teaser...(I modified it just a little so that it's not a huge spoiler.)
“It never seems ta lessen,” Brennus says to me, while stepping with regal grace down the staircase to my position. “Dis stabbing thrill of desire dat bleeds trough me whenever I behold ye, mo chroí.” The icy path is expanding around him, covering every surface with frost.
I feign composure as I reply, “Come in and get your overdose then.” I straighten my shoulders. “I’m surprised that you’re not tired of the hangover.”
(Sorry...that's it. Trust me, you'll thank me later. Love you!!)
*Sigh* I can never get enough of Brennus. :/ And of course, you can't forget the fellas! I miss my Irish undead fairies</3 Can't wait for Incendiary!! Thanks for the update Amy .:)
Well I'm definitely not thanking you now, teehee. But seriously, thanks for a little Brennus nibble. I really do miss him. And I'm really digging the song. I don't think I've ever heard it before.
*sigh* I can't wait for Incendiary to be released! November is so far away!!! :( I need more Brennus!!! :)
Wow sounds like Evie is getting hmmm what's the right word BOLD lol and I love it and the ong it does fit just perfect for Brennus it just sets the scene up in your mind I can't wait till this book comes out !!
I LOVE it, and cannot wait for the book to arrive! Thank you Amy!
!Oh yes yes although i'm a reed fan, i do have a soft spot fo Brennus. so as always love your work and can not wait for Incendairy!!!!
Thank you for updating! Can not wait for the book release!!!
Love the song you posted For Brennus! Now even though I like Brennus, I'm still Team REED all the way!! Also now I want to reread the books and cant wait for Incendiary ;)
I'm going into Brennus withdrawl, thanks for the teaser, but I'm greedy....now I want more LOL
AWESOME!!! And I'm seeing light at the end of this tunnel :)
You just gave me another reason to love you!!!!!! Thank you so much for a little taste of Brennus. Team B all the way.
Amy I LOVE LOVE LOVE your books, each is better than the last. I don't know how you do it, you take a character that is supposed to be evil and you create a warmth about them. I can actually feel Evie's confusion and gravitation towards the characters, I can't decide if I want her to end up with Brennus, Russel or Reed. My heart bleeds for each of them. Keep going with the books as long as there is a story to tell, as long as each character is speaking to you. I pray they never shut up and you keep writing their story forever!
AY DIOS MIO! (fanning myself here-Brennus, really?!?!?!? Reed. D-A-M-N!) I would love to get in that mind of yours- How did you come up with these characters? What inspired you to create these god-given icons that drive so many women crazy. You make me wish for the imaginary-not in a crazy fanatic kind of way, but one can only wish, right?
it is a little scary to read that Evie is that near or close to Brennus... not a Brennus fan, but i do really wish for him to find a dead-fairy or someone that it IS his other-half cuz we all know Evie is Reed's, I do not wish him death (although he is already dead lol) but hopefully like his brother that found someone -i know he liked Evie and settled for the next best thing- I am gonna go and read some more of Reed and Evie to not think about Evie and Brennus... *sighs*
Oh My Goodness!!!!! What a horrible thing to do (just kidding). But now the wait gets more tough, lol. I guess I will have to satisfy my Evie and Brennus fix by reading the three books all over again :)
I really really hope Brennus finds someone else......or just disappears>:( team Reeeed. I cannot waittttt
I love it! Can't wait until November! It's killing me. I'm team REED all the way but I'm still lovin me some Brennus! He's such a bad ass!
I haven't found a character in the zillions of books i've been reading lately that draws me in like Brennus. He is unforgetable, my favorite of all characters and so exciting. This girl is team Brennus and that snippit was just what i needed. aaaahhhhhh hurry Incendiary. :-)
I have this scary feeling that he is about to get hurt!...!! Aaaaaaa I can nott wait to read it!!!! I want to find out lol
O.M.G. I need me some Brennus! Don't get me wrong, I'm team Reed but there's something about Brennus and his Irish accent *sucks in air through teeth* and his AMAZING way with words that just turns me into a puddle of GUSH! I can't wait for Incendiary to come out!
