I hope y'all are well. Today I thought I would share a scene from my work-in-progress, the second book in my Amethyst Chronicles series, Croceus Poison.

Amethyst Chronicles: Croceus Poison, will be available in April! Here's a little teaser:

Ember was sitting close enough to the window to feel the chill from outside. A shiver ran down her spine, reminding her how vulnerable she now is. Her eyes narrowed. She clinched her hands until her knuckles turned white. Her nails dug into her hands, breaking the skin and causing small droplets of blood to rise to the surface. She looked down at her palms. Two months ago, she would’ve already started healing. Now the blood stayed on the surface until she wiped it on her khaki pants. She didn’t care about the small streak of red blood.

Red blood. It used to be purple.

Her eyes were once purple. It was a gorgeous shade of deep purple in which her group got its name. Now it was back to the original blue, only dulled now from her pain and grief.

“Don’t do that,” Liam said as he reclaimed his spot in the chair next to her. He reached for her hands but she pulled away from him. He sighed. “Why won’t you look at me?”
“You really don’t get it, do you?” Lewis asked. “She doesn’t want you to see her.”

Ember clicked her tongue on the roof of her mouth three times and nodded.

“If that’s how she feels, then she should tell me herself.”
“Go away,” Ember said in a huff.

She finally turned to face him. Liam’s short brown hair was slicked back away from his face. He had large bags under his eyes, evidence he hadn’t slept recently. His brown eyes were filled with worry as he searched her face. A scratchy beard had started to grow. He looked tortured.

“I said go away, Liam.”


And there you have it! Hope you enjoy. To find other teasers, use the hastage #sfrgtt on Facebook and Twitter.
