Frailties of the Bond book blitz & giveaway

In Frailties of the Bond, it only takes one bite to change a life.

Two teens...
Two lies...

Their paths collide...
When one bite changes a life.


Excerpt:

I parked in front of Geekout, our video game and RPG hang out, then walked the few paces to where Mouse stood. “Tell me you didn’t.” I smiled, knowing full well she’d bought a new outfit for our little venture.

“Perfect timing!” she squealed, dumping her purchases with Matt and yanking me, Charlie, and Shelley back inside.

It was the only place vampires could shop no matter what time of day. No windows. No sun.

I loved looking at the clothes, mostly Old World fashions and fabrics for tailor made outfits, with a few of them on display. Alessandro , the owner, kept a close eye to the “What’s hot, What’s not” section of the PQ. I adored being in the know, but I wasn’t into the trends.

I loved my high top converses and Doc Marten boots. Graphic tees every day of the week. Cargo jeans with ten pockets and “NO” to cute capris. Mom taught me how to walk in heels but I stayed away from them as much as possible.

Before I could whine, Mouse had me in front of the corsets, a red half-piece held aloft for inspection. “You have your mother’s double-decker cleavage but your father’s ripped abs. I would hate you if you weren’t my friend."

I rolled my eyes.

She tsked. “Let’s get Alessandro to measure you.”

I opened my mouth. “I--”

Mouse lifted her finger. Alessandro quickened to us in a blur.

“Miss Chevelianne, how may I assist you again?” He bowed to Mouse.

When he lifted his eyes to me, I noticed a flicker of shadow quickly replaced by sky blue.

“Are the garments I sold you not meeting your needs?” He focused on Mouse. “We can certainly rectify that if -”

“No,” Mouse interrupted, flashing her winning smile. “My friend here needs something.” She didn’t give my name. Not needed. Older fangs knew me as a freak of nature, the blood sucker born from the womb instead of turned like a real vampire. I’d heard the whispers and let them be.

Author bio: Born and raised in Little Rock, AR, Angela now calls Central Texas home.

Reading and writing have been lifelong passions. It was around the time she gave birth to her forever-love, nicknamed Chipmunk, that she really took writing seriously. After all, how could she teach her child to follow her dreams if she hadn't tried herself?

As a YA fantasy/sci-fi reader and author, she favors the magical, mysterious, the darker side of life...even harbors a secret fright for things that go bump in the night.

NEVERLOVE is a special project spawned from a blog-challenge-turned-blog-opera, the Abby and Basil affair. It is the first in the Shadow Jumpers series.

FRAILTIES OF THE BOND is the first in a series of novellas and short stories introducing heroes and heroines of the secret organization, NEO – Network of Extraordinaires and Otherwordlies.

    I'm delighted you have brought further awareness of my amazing friend and yes, a starstruck fan of mine, Angela.

    I also greatly enjoyed your interview over at another of my adoring fans sites, as in the shy and humble Tammy.
