This post was all set to be the shortest one in the history of blogging. I planned on simply revealing the title for the much-anticipated Love Always, Kate novella and that was it.
However, for fun, I decided to also throw in an excerpt!! It's a short one, but I still hope you like it.
Okay, so back to the title. The Love Always, Kate novella will be called "Eight Days." As the title suggests, this novella runs through the events in Damian's life that happened in the eight days Kate was in the medicated coma. And it's all from Damian's POV.
And the excerpt? Well, here it is!
Kate’s file is under my heels. I lower my legs and pick it up, opening the flimsy cover. The fucking thing is so thick, a lump rises in my throat at the weight of it. Last time I’d only flipped through it to find out who she was; this time, I’ll read every damn word.
I start in the back of the file, where she’d gone in for what her doctors thought was mono. I don’t care that I don’t understand half the shit I read; it still hurts like hell to read everything she’s been through.
The further into the file I venture, the more I realize that being with Kate is incredibly stupid. She’s sick, and at any second I could lose her. I know that the deeper I go with her, the harder it will be to walk away. And I should walk away.
I’m not good for her, and she’s not good for me.
She deserves better. Someone stronger than me, who won’t fall apart when shit gets real. That’s my MO. Even tonight, if the news is bad, I don’t think I can handle it. I’m a fucked-up mess.
Half way through, I shut the file and push it as far from me as possible. The thing almost falls off the desk.
“I’m done. I can’t do this,” I mutter, digging my phone out of my back pocket. I need to cut the ties with Kate before I’m too attached.
I dial the number to the one girl who understands me, the one who’s good at numbing my mind. She picks right up like she always does. Tonight, I need her as much as she usually needs me.
And there you have it folks! I'm working hard for a December 2014 release date on this.
