Here’s a teaser to the start to HOUSE OF CARDS
Chapter 1 Nervous
“You ready for this?”
Rae stared at Julian as they stood in front of the large wooden door, his hand on the knob, about to bring her into the completely chaotic world she’d never knew existed two years ago. She blinked, and then blinked again. A lot can change in a small amount of time. “I’m re—”
Something crashed against the other side of the door, followed by a howl no man should ever be able to utter, cut her off. Julian jumped back at the impact, then grinned and tightened the ponytail holding his long dark hair when the door stayed intact. He glanced at her, the door and then her again. “You sure?”
Rae shot what she hoped was her dirtiest look and stepped in front of him, determined to quell all nervousness. Could the butterfly wings in her stomach be blamed on the fairy ink-art on her lower back? She, and her tatù, were both on edge. With forced determination she grabbed the handle of the door and yanked it open.
Before she had a chance to check out the room, some kind of Frisbee disc flew toward her. Tatù reflexes kicked in naturally and she ducked just in time. She couldn’t stop the giggle that escaped when a deep “oof” reverberated out of Julian as it nailed him the chest. She leaned down and grabbed the surprisingly heavy disc off the floor. She straightened and grinned. “Thought your tatù gave you the ability to see the future.” She couldn’t hold back the laughter as she handed him the disc. “Even I saw that coming a mile away.”
Obviously winded, Julian shook his head. “I-I’ll g-give you that one…s-since it’s your f-first day.”
What had Carter said? Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life.

Review by: The YA Chick Lit
Radium Halos is a different kind of superhero story, but it is definitely just as enjoyable as all of your favorites. Maybe the whole group of friends being accidentally exposed to a strange matter that gives them super abilities plot isn’t exactly new, but the way that May tells it keeps the story fresh and exciting.
I loved that the abilities were derived from the senses, as it seems more likely to actually happen. Amplifying what is already present makes a lot more sense than powers just being developed out of thin air. Having the group learn more about their powers and slowly come to realize how they can push themselves really added to the pacing of the novel.
Besides, who doesn’t love a good Origins story?
The characters of Radium Halos are excellent as they all have their unique personalities. Both Zoe and Brett proved to be interesting narrators that were able to keep the attention of the reader. They managed to have different voices that still transitioned smoothly. Kieran is a perfectly mysterious character. It’s hard not to make some predictions about him, just as it’s difficult to determine a solid opinion of the guy. I’d love to learn more about Rylee, Heidi and Seth in the future.
Radium Halos has moments that will make you laugh and even more moments that will keep you at the edge of your seat, waiting to find out what will happen next. From the very beginning, readers are drawn into the story of these six teens, all the way to the sharp cliff of an ending. I enjoyed reading Radium Halos and cannot wait until the release of part two.

Yup, I’m behind on my blog. I’m a lousy weekly, monthly or on time blogger. Sometimes it seems that keeping up with websites, book pages, goodreads, twitter (which Im also lousy at), amazon pages, facebook, facebook author page, emails, etc… etc… I just can’t keep up! Did I mention I also have to fit in writing as well :)
yup, its busy. And I love it!
So I’m sorry I’m not always posting when I should be or I post a bunch of stuff all at once. Bear with me and just believe that if I’m quiet, I’m writing and if I’m writing, news things are coming!
With that thought, Shadow of Doubt is releasing next month. I also am part of a fantastic Analogy for Fantasy and another Vampire one coming out in November. It’s going to be a busy last half of the year and I can’t wait!
So off I go, to edit and get a bit of writing in before my eyes decide they need shut eye more than letter are needed on the computer!
