Preview of My “Book”

sooo as you guys know I’ve been writing again. I’ve been investing more time into just sitting by myself in the quiet or with the music on (Usually Enya) and giving life and substance to characters in my head. As a little “booster” for that I’m debuting a snippet of a chapter for something I’m working on here on wordpress FIRST! *yay* So take a look at what’s written down below and give me some feedback. I hope you enjoy what’s been written so far:

xo Alee.

Tajahnѐ glanced at her trainer, Susan Sector, standing on a pedestal overlooking the training field as she barked orders and insults at her.

“Push it lady! My great grandmother in her grave could whip your ass!”

Sector’s hands danced in front of her as if she was directing a symphony as she manipulated the elements to add more obstacles to the course. As top warrior and current leader of the Warrior Clan, manipulating the elements to suit herself was a piece of cake. She stood high off the ground and waved her hands around to create dust tornadoes and sent dozens of concrete saucers flying towards Tajahnѐ.

Taj cursed as she saw what Sector was doing and pushed all the harder to shoot down the saucers before they went slamming into her face. She smiled lightly as she saw the checkered flag signalling the finish line. She raced towards it, falling, rolling and sliding away from more targets as they came with full force towards her. She had almost reached the flag when out of nowhere came a piece of a tree trunk. It hit her right in the stomach and she skidded and smashed into a concrete wall she’d left behind.

She could almost see the smirk printed on Sector’s face through the stars swimming around her head.

“Always be prepared for the unexpected!” Sector shouted.

Taj growled at her, not caring if she would be punished for it afterward and walked back to where her sister and other training mates waited.

The Look Of Love – Bella Andre (review)

She’d shut it out for so long
She’d forgotten what it was,
How it felt,
What it meant
 
She’d forgotten how it made her feel
How to react,
How to say it back when it was said
 
She’d forgotten how it made her blue cheeks red,
Her green eyes glisten,
Her iced heart melt
 
She’d forgotten how it made the butterflies flutter,
Her heart jitter,
Her tongue stutter
 
She’d blocked it out for so long
She’d forgotten how it felt to crush,
To infatuate,
How it felt to fall in love.
 
-By Aliceia Dawkins (Yours truly)

Chase Sullivan is content with his life as a photographer and his freedom to go to bed with any model of his choosing on any night. While returning from a photo shoot one night in the middle of a hail storm, Chase notices a car off the side of the road up ahead and a woman in trouble. Being the gentleman he is Chase pulls over to see if he could offer her some help but he never expected to find the most beautiful woman he’d ever laid eyes on with an overwhelming pull to want to love and protect her with every fiber of his being.

Chloe Peterson is having one of the worst nights of her life in a string of really bad nights. Running from everything she’d ever known, her soon-to-be ex husband, her job, her home, the last thing she needs is for her car to be totaled in the middle of a hail storm. This gorgeous man who pulls up to help her could be the change in her sting of bad luck, but given what she is running from Chloe second guesses trusting him.

The Look Of Love puts an interesting twist on a romance story. A book that takes you on a journey as Chloe and Chase – two characters you can’t help but fall in love with – discover what it really means to love. Sullivan Tour Badge
