Teaser Tuesday: Rise of Alpha by Lorenz Font


Today for Teaser Tuesday, a sneak peek at what Lorenz Font has been working on. Coming soon!

Rise of Alpha - 1st book of the Prodian Journey Trilogy



“What’s the medical term for your jumping illness?”

I was glad the question came up right away. “It’s called Tourette’s Syndrome.”

“What is that?”

The question plagued me wherever I went, and I had the answer down pat. Explaining it one more time wouldn’t kill me. “The sudden and involuntary tics and vocalizations are byproducts of an abnormal metabolism of my brain’s neurotransmitters.” I shrugged.

“Wow… sounds heavy.”

Yep, it was a big issue for a teenager, something I wouldn’t ever sign up for. “If my involuntary cursing and jerking doesn’t bother you, then I don’t have a problem being your partner. I’m just trying to protect you from a possible heart attack. In my experience, people get nervous being around me.” I leaned against the cushion, feeling good now that I’d gotten her all prepared. If my fever was making me delirious with happiness, then I wouldn’t mind the mercury spiking up a bit more.

“You sound like you’ve been hiding for much too long, Curly.”

It would have sounded better if she used babe or sweetie, but I’d settle for anything. “It comes with the territory, but let’s not talk about me anymore. Why don’t you tell me what you want to do for our photography project?” This was a ploy to get her talking so I could keep listening to her voice.

Shannon’s eyes rolled up to the ceiling. “Um, I like taking pictures of moving subjects rather than portraits. I would love it if you would pose for me. You’re very interesting, Mexican jumping beans and all.” She giggled.

I glared in mock disapproval at her attempt to make light of my situation. “Hell, no. I’m not comfortable in my own skin, let alone with allowing someone to take my picture for everyone to make fun of.”

I stood up, but my legs wobbled. Shannon was quick to get up and place her arm around my waist. Holy smokes, batman. She touched me!

“You’re such a dork! I’m not kidding. Haven’t you checked yourself in the mirror?” she asked, helping me back down onto the sofa.

I felt like a total loser and had no idea what to say. Look at myself in the mirror? I’d been doing that for the last seventeen years and never liked what I saw—blond hair, dull blue eyes, and average build. Interesting was a word I’d never apply to myself.

Freakish, yeah. Right on.

Teaser Tuesday: Sneak Peek from T.M. Franklin

Teaser Tuesday

Today for Teaser Tuesday, a sneak peek at what T.M. Franklin's been working on for National Novel Writing Month!

Jamming his hands into his sweatshirt pockets, Beck shivered and blinked the sleep out of his eyes with a yawn. He took a step back and looked around, finally able to focus on his surroundings. The neighborhood was a mess, not even counting the mayhem around the house fire. Garbage cans were upended in the middle of the road, one crunched under the wheel of a black sedan with a dent in the side, parked halfway onto the sidewalk, the driver's side door hanging open and spray paint scrawled across the hood. Paper and trash scattered in the wind, littering front yards up and down the street. Beck tilted his head a the sound of another siren, further away, and a distant rumble he realized was shouting.

What in the world was going on?

His dad strode up. "House is empty. The Jensens aren't home," he said, looking up at the fire. "The house is a loss, though. They're pretty much just trying to keep it from spreading to other buildings at this point."

"Do they know how it started?" Beck asked.

His father frowned. "Bunch of kids, apparently. Maybe gang activity. They're not sure," he said. "They came through, causing trouble . . . vandalizing, looting, that kind of thing. Not sure how they started the fire, though. Not sure why they'd want to.

"I don't know." He shook his head, brow furrowed as he turned toward the still-wailing siren. "It seems like this town's gone crazy or something."

Beck opened his mouth to respond, but his ringing phone interrupted his thought. He grabbed it, instantly recognizing his sister's ringtone.

"Hello? Tru?"

Only heavy breathing and a soft whimper responded.

"Trulee? Is that you?"

"Guess again," a chillingly familiar voice responded.

Beck's heart stopped. "Gina?"

The woman laughed. "What happened to 'Mom?'"

"You lost that privilege a long time ago."

"What's going on?" his father asked. Beck shook his head and held up a finger to hold him off.

"How did I raise such an ungrateful child?" she asked, words slurring. "You're such a disappointment."

"Well, that's nothing new," Beck replied through gritted teeth. "Where's Trulee?"

"Trulee . . . Trulee . . . Truuuuuuleeee . . ." Gina sang tunelessly. "Wouldn't you like to know?"

"What have you done to her?"

"Nothing she didn't deserve," she snapped. "Ungrateful, useless—"

Beck didn't hear the rest of her rant. He hung up the phone and fumbled for his car keys, racing for the house when he realized he'd left them inside.

"Beckett!" His father chased after him, catching him on the way back down the stairs. "What in the world is going on?"

He pushed his way past. "It's Tru. I think she's in trouble."

Teaser Tuesday: Irrevocably Claimed - A Collection of Erotic Stories featuring Sherri Hayes

Genre: Erotic Romance/Erotica
Release Date: November 6, 2015

Sherri Hayes has released a new story as part of the Irrevocably Claimed anthology, which is now available for a limited time for only 99 cents.


Justin had just swallowed his last bite when there was a knock on his door. He glanced up at the clock. It was half past two. Since he wasn’t expecting anyone, he had no idea who it could be. A delivery, maybe? But even then, he was left scratching his head. He hadn’t ordered anything recently.

Setting his empty plate on the coffee table, he walked over to the door and looked through the peephole. He jerked back and swiftly opened the door. Standing on his threshold was his best friend’s little sister. Justin and Mark had been best friends since they were sixteen. In high school they’d done everything together—even went on a few double dates. Now that they were both adults, they got together once a month to catch up and shoot the bull while downing a few beers and yelling at whatever game happened to be on the big screen of their local sports bar.

Kim stood there staring at him with wide eyes.
“Hi,” he said.

“Hi.” She looked nervous.

“Did something happen?”

She shook her head. “No. Nothing…no. May I come in?”

He took a step back and motion for her to enter. Kim walked inside and he closed the door behind her. “Are you sure you’re all right?”

“Yeah. I’m fine. Promise.” She flashed him one of those sweet smiles of hers. It caused his chest to clench every time. He didn’t see her as often anymore as he used to, but they still ran into each other on occasion. Justin had been such a fixture at their house during the last two years of high school that he was often invited to family gatherings. Whether he wanted to admit it or not, seeing Kim at those times had been a definite highlight.

He reached for the remote and turned off the television. She was obviously here to talk to him about something. “Would you like something to drink?”


She was acting really strange. “What would you like? I have water, soda, beer, wine…pick your poison.”

His joke fell flat.

“Water. Thank you.”

He nodded and ducked into the kitchen.

Justin took his time getting Kim’s water. Standing in his living room fidgeting with the belt of her coat, she looked almost fragile. It threw him because he knew she wasn’t any such thing. Kim had graduated at the top of her class in college and landed a job almost immediately thanks to one of her professors. She’d excelled in her position and quickly rose within the company. Last he’d heard, she was being considered for vice president of operations. The woman knew what she wanted and went after it. That was one of the things he admired about her—one of the things he’d always admired about her.

As he headed back into the living room where Kim was waiting, he racked his brain trying to figure out why she was here. All thoughts went out the window, however, when his gaze fell on Kim kneeling on the floor, naked. Her head was bowed, her knees parted, and her forearms rested on her thighs, palms up.
