New Snippet from Tempest Revealed!!!

Hi Guys,

Since it's Friday and I just finished a final run through of the Tempest Revealed page proofs, I thought I'd put a quick new snippet up for you.  Hope you enjoy :)  And if you're in the area, don't forget to come see me this weekend in San Antonio and Austin.  The times and places are below this post :)

As soon as Mark had disappeared into the crowd, Logan turned to me and, in the smarmiest voice possible, said, “Finally.Alone at last. I thought he’d never leave.”

I laughed. “If by alone you mean in the middle of three thousand people, then yes, we’re alone.”

“That’s exactly what I meant. And since we’re all by ourselves . . .” He nudged me with his shoulder until I got the message and scooted over into Mark’s spot. He followed me, moving until there was an obvious gap between the others and us. With the noise of the game all around us, we might as well
have been in our own little world.

“Since we’re alone?” I prompted, too amused to be wary. This was Logan and I knew he would never say or do anything to hurt me.

“Are you going to tell me where you’ve really been for the last year? Because if you’ve been surfing the North Shore then I’m the biggest Barney on the block. And darlin’, I’m nobody’s Barney.”

It’s true, he wasn’t. Logan knew me better than almost anyone. Lying to him this last year hadn’t been easy, despite all my absences, but I hadn’t had a choice. I still didn’t. I’d already violated Pacific law by telling Mark what I was. Adding Logan to the mix was out of the question.

I started to laugh his questions off, to tell him he was being ridiculous, but the look on his face said he was calling my bluff, even before I offered it. His deep blue eyes were steady on mine, his mouth set in a straight line completely unlike the smile he usually wore. And his body language, his serious, no bullshit demeanor, told me there was only one right answer to this question.

The truth.

Have a great Friday :)

  27. On a submenu, our swinging bachelor rolex submariner replica found seven more items to watch. First he got the stills gallery of lady wrestlers out of the way. "Stupid stills gallery! Nothing but pictures!" Then he watched popular female wrestler Mildred gucci replica Burke battle Mae Weston in a newsreel type short called "Lipstick and Dynamite." "Wow, ladies had no problems being chubby back then, isn't that right erection?" he said to his. well, you know replica belts. Much excitement was caused by the short "Scalli's Gymnasium" which featured a few of the actresses from PIN-DOWN GIRL in cleavage and naked back-flashing glory. "Wow, I wish porno prada replica hadn't so deadened my love of the tease." "When Girls Need a Man" met with instant success! "OH MY GOD, was that an up the skirt shot?!" Yes, indeed it was an up the skirt shot, a fully clothed chanel outlet, wearing underwear, up the skirt shot. "Ha, ha, ha, this narration is killer - I bet I'll get some laughs with it tomorrow at Megatron Mike's! Oh, that reminds me, the new issue of HOT STUFF louis vuitton outlet came out today, gotta get that!" "The Mad Whirl" was a ten-minute roller derby clip. "Yawn! Hmmm. you know what would be better than this?! ANYTHING!" "Glamazon Living Room Rumble" received the greatest response, practically twenty minutes of girls wrestling in a living room swiss replica watches while some choice music played. It's hypnotic as well as nonsensical; a true thing of beauty and a great addition to any party. "OH MY GOD! Was that a nipple that just popped out! It was! rolex masterpiece watches It was! I've got to talk to Peter about this." And with that we leave our lonely boy, busy unfastening his belt, to call attention to one of the greatest crap films of all time, PIN-DOWN louis vuitton outlet GIRL.
