Thursday Teaser

I thought I'd try something new here. I'm gonna call it the Thursday Teaser. I will try to post a teaser at least every other Thursday, though weekly is my goal. This week I think we will do a short teaser from The Dragon's Portal (book 1).

    Then the most ghastly noise she had ever heard assaulted her ears, followed by a deep rumbling tremor. “What was that?” Amaya asked in horror. Another rumbling tremor was followed by more, almost like a giant's footsteps.

    Aiden was quick to answer, “A dragon, miss. He guards this area, and probably thinks we have done something wrong. Humans are not exactly supposed to loiter in this area of the woods. I think we should leave this area right now before we end up being his next meal.”

    Amaya gave him a skeptical look and turned to look behind her to figure out what the noise really was. To her great surprise, she could make out a huge beast with deep sapphire blue scales that matched her clothing almost exactly. She saw leathery wings and a huge spiked tail, also.  Dragons don’t exist! Amaya thought and with that fainted.

If you would like to hear the rest of the story, you can purchase here.

Not much has been happening so far this week...oh, who am I kidding, it's been one freakin train wreck after another, but I've muddling my way through. I haven't had much of a chance to write so far, but I'm hoping to fix that tomorrow. I'll probably be working on the second Dragon Portal book.

In other news, Ariel over at Sassy Princess Reviews left an awesome review for both The Dragon's Portal and Deviate. If you're interested, here they are: Dragon Portal & Deviate.

Hope everyone has an awesome week! Happy Reading Slayers!!

Blog Hop: 12 Days of Christmas
Event Date: December 1st - 12th 2013

So, yeah I kind of cheated. I don't usually make cookies, but divinity...we make it every year. It is so good and VERY addictive.

Original recipe makes 4 dozen (approximately) Change Servings
2 2/3 cups white sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1. Cook sugar, corn syrup, and water in a 2-quart pot over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. (On humid days, use 1 tablespoon less water.) Cook, without stirring, to 260 degrees on candy thermometer (or hard ball stage).

2. Beat egg whites in 1-1/2-quart bowl until stiff peaks form. Continue to beat while pouring hot syrup in a thin stream into egg whites. Add vanilla; beat until mixture holds its shape and becomes slightly dull. (Mixture may become too stiff for electric mixer). Fold in nuts (if you choose).

 3. Drop from buttered spoon onto waxed paper. Let stand at room temperature, turning candy over once, until outside of candy is firm--at least 12 hours. Store in airtight container.
