About the Author
Before becoming a writer I worked as a computer consultant, a photographer, and a graphic designer. I also operate a custom glass etching business, in addition to being a wife and mother of three wonderful children.
I have been a fan of the paranormal for as long as I can remember. Anything to do with superpowers, myth and magic has always held a special place in my heart. From my first paranormal cartoon, Isis, to the phenomenon that is Twilight, this genre has always been a part of my life. Thanks for joining me on this magical journey!
Today Tish has brought us an excerpt from Aradia Awakens the first book in the Ovialell series. There is also an awesome giveaway at the end of this post!
Flaky buttery crust, the rich taste of chocolate, the feel of smooth crème against her tongue. Mmm…delicious.
These were the thoughts currently plaguing Aryiah’s mind. Pie was her escape. It was her go-to dessert for bad days, break-ups, and fights with her best friend. But instead of being able to indulge in her favorite feel good dessert, she was currently sitting in the Goddess’ upper throne room, holding the book that announced to all of Ovialell who she truly was.
As she gazed at the hordes of unfamiliar faces, her stomach tightened and her entire body started to shake. Maybe she wasn’t ready to “take her rightful place,” as everyone kept putting it. The desire to run away from this entire scene threatened to overwhelm her, but just then, a strong hand settled on her shoulder.
My mate, she thought. His touch alone was enough to calm her nerves. The only problem was, his nearness also stirred the wolf she was now able to become.
“My love, I am barely in control right now.”
He chuckled quietly, then sent his thoughts into her mind. I’m sorry to have rustled your wolf, but listening to your musings about chocolate crème pie and the thought of you licking it from my chest has left me ravenous. I think I’ll be reminding you of the idea later.
A smile spread across Aryiah’s face. With this sexy man beside her, she knew she could face anything…even her destiny.
Aryiah stood and lifted the now glowing book above her head and the crowd went wild.
