Teaser Tuesday 5/17/16

It’s Tuesday!! And, its been a while since I have posted a teaser – and with Crown of Cinders very quickly nearing completion – it’s better late than never.

So, without further display – let’s get to it!

The following is from Crown of Cinders, due out later this year (date to be released), everything is copyright 2016 Rebecca Ethington and Market Street Books. All unedited, and subject to change.

Enjoy!

Jaromir

Stuck in a trap, I lay in bunk, staring into the black noting, knowing I should be asleep – but being unable to do so.

The loud cadence of Mira’s breathing filled the dark like a song, some haunting thing that sound more like a ghost than a human.

Her breathing drowned out the sound of the guard that Ryland had left to watch us. I would have forgotten he was there if not for the commands Ryland had left behind. He had practically yelled them, after all – as if we needed reminding.

Don’t let us leave.

Make sure we sleep.

We can’t leave the bunks.

Even repeating them to myself sent me into a panic, almost as if I could sense what was coming. I just wish I could follow them.

I wish I could sleep.

I wish I could just ignore everything.

Ignore what I had done. Even though I hadn’t technically done it yet.

“Jaromir,” she hissed, my heart falling to my toes.

So much for not having done it yet.

“Do you remember Uncle Yagi?” Her voice was soft as it broke through the dark, the knot in my stomach loosening as the familiar sweet in her voice continued, “Do you remember when we went to go visit him in Russia that last time, before he died?”

The knot was back to the same tense ball of fear, of all the memories she would have picked.

“Yes…” I wasn’t sure I liked where this was going.

Uncle Yagi had cancer, a really scary one, even though I don’t know what kind. He had everyone come visit him… and then he did something. Something bad. I wasn’t sure I wanted to talk about it right now.

Especially in the dark.

“Do you remember how he was when we first got there, how mom thought he was dead?” I really didn’t like where this was going, I could only nod. One sharp head nod as I tried to swallow past the tight constriction in my throat. “He didn’t move, and his skin was so pale. His lips were blue.”

I could barely breathe, let alone talk, but I tried anyway. “What are you talking about Mira?”

“I saw someone that looked like that last night.”

“You saw a dead man?” This time she looked at me.

“Yes, but he was in a bed, just like all the others. Dead and sad. Like they are trying to keep him alive, his hair cords like the wires that ran to Uncle Yogi’s chest.”

I knew at once who she was talking about, and I swallowed, the movement painful thanks to my still constricted throat.

“How did you find him?” I hadn’t even seen him, even though I knew where he was. I knew who he was. I knew everything about this place. Like how you weren’t allowed to go over there. “That’s off limits.”

The light in her eyes dimmed as her smirk killed the glow, the lest shred of familiarity of my sister vanishing. “I was just walking around, Jaromir.” She waved her hand to the side. “I need to go there again. I need to give him something. I need you to take me..”

Hope you enjoyed it! Also, if you haven’t heard – Imdalind is on sale! Now is the perfect time to catch up, or get someone you know addicted!
There are only a few days left – so go grab them!

Changes are Coming…

Like winter… its on it’s way and you can’t stop it. It’s going to blow in without warning… although I don’t think it’s going to be as cold or as obnoxious as winter.

This is me in winter, BTW. I hate winter.

But I don’t hate what’s coming… and I don’t think you will either.

Although the changes might be a bit jarring at first. But thats okay, because I’ll be here to hold your hand and help you to remember to breathe…

Ready, hold on tight… because here we go.

Now, Obviously I can’t tell you everything, but what I can tell you is this:


 

NUMBER ONE

THIS WEBSITE WILL BE ALL NEW BY THE END OF THE MONTH

Now, I know this one doesn’t seem to drastic or scary, I guess it’s more scary for me – because it’s a lot of work on my part. But I’ve been trying to get this done for a while – and because its all on me now there may be some times the website has some down time, or disappears all together. But do not fret – because when it comes back it’s going to be better than ever. With a ton more functionality. And, when it relaunches we are going to have some major giveaways – so just watch for it :)


 

NUMBER TWO

ALL CURRENTLY RELEASED IMDALIND WILL NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE OUTSIDE OF AMAZON AT THE END OF NEXT WEEK.

I know, this one is scary – so read this all the way through. I am almost done with the last book in the Imdalind Series – Crown of Cinders. Watch for a publication date announcement/cover reveal near the end of June – but until then all of the Imdalind books are being pulled from Nook/iBooks/Kobo to be listed exclusively through Amazon. One will be removed every few days until they are all de-listed and then the series will only be available for download through Amazon. Print copies will still be available, and you will still be able to download them through the Kindle Books App – but no where else. The books will be enrolled in KU if you are a KU user, but will still be able to be purchased with a KU subscription.

When Crown of Cinders is released it will be released to a wider distribution, so don’t worry if you are one of my iBooks/Nook readers, and the whole series may be in a wider distribution at this point – but for right now the decision has been made and will be enacted very quickly – so if you haven’t picked up all the copies of Imdalind yet – do so now!  (You can find all the buy links to all the books at the base of this post)

I will detail out my decision in a later blog post, but this is being done for a good reason. Trust me 😉


 

NUMBER THREE

ALL CURRENTLY RELEASED THROUGH GLASS BOOKS WILL BE PULLED FROM SHELVES/DOWNLOAD BY THE END OF THIS MONTH.

This one, is my opinion, is a bit more of a ding – but MUCH more exciting. Right now Through Glass 1-8 are available only on Amazon, with 9 available everywhere. By the end of this month the books will be pulled from every purchase outlet and will be unavailable for about a month.

I published Through Glass with the intent of publishing a new episode every other week, or every week. I was working on Number 6 when I suddenly lost my home, my life, and pretty much everything you could imagine. Obviously, my original plan fell by the wayside… okay, it kind of exploded.

But with Imdalind nearing completion I am taking the opportunity to make repairs to the series and relaunch it with all the awesomeness it deserves. The series is getting pumped up – major big time. Each novella will be expanded, re-editing, re-grouped and even re- branded. We are talking new covers, new swag, new promos… and so much new content your head might explode.

The original Novel (now episodes 1-3 box) will be removed completely. However, the individual episodes will be re-uplaoded (so if you have already purchased them they should automatically update).

Plus, with Imdalind done and in the hands of my publishers, I will be able to devote all my time to this series, publishing one book a month until completion. No more endless waiting. Just amazing adventures.

When Through Glass is re-launched it will go straight into Amazon’s KU program, so grab a Kindle App now if you don’t have one. (You will still be able to purchase the books without KU, but only on Amazon)

I love Through Glass, and if you haven’t started it yet,or even if you have,  just wait – it’s relaunch is going to blow your mind.


 

NUMBER FOUR

OF RIVER AND RAYNN: THE CATALYST WILL BE PULLED FROM PURCHASE BY THE END OF THIS WEEK.

This one hurts my heart a bit. I started writing Of River and Raynn in a desperate attempt to find the love of writing again (Much of my love of writing was taken by others greed) I was in the middle of writing it when my marriage fell apart, and I finished it when I was stuck in depression so powerful getting out of bed every day was nearly impossible.

I am not happy with it. In fact, I agree with the majority of reviewers who say it it confusing.

I think it has potential, but it needs to be reworked with a clear head, when I am not working in depression and mind numbing panic. I have finally got to a point that I am working, and happy, and ready to soar – so this book will be pulled.

And when Through Glass is done, it will be re-released after it is reworked, and infected with all the amazing accomplishment that I have gained. To every one who took a chance on this book, I thank you. And it will be back, and the story continued. But for now – I need to pull it – so I can create something I am proud of.


 

So, that’s it.  I told you there were some changes, and while some are scary – they will all be worth it. Just wait – awesome is coming.

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions – my comment box is open. 😉

Until then, grab your copies while they are available!

Thanks for all your love and support guys! Here comes the next amazing chapter!

Here we go again…

I cannot express how odd, frightening and bewildering the last two years have been.

Which is probably why coming out of it has felt like emerging from a fog. One day everything felt heavy, impossible, and absolutely damning.

The next day, even though the weight was still there, a bit of a crushing pressure against my chest, I could breathe through it. I could look at the sky and see the twisting beauty in the clouds and the stories that they weaved as they’d danced through the sky.

But, most importantly – I would weave words. I could create worlds, I could tap into the minds of those characters I created and make something amazing happen. I had tried for two years to reach that space, but it had been trapped, hiding behind dirty glass, taunting me. Laughing as I tried to push through the barriers and create, meeting deadlines that seemed impossible.

If only that fog had left before – If only I hadn’t been forced to write Burnt Devotion and Dawn of Ash through that fog – through that crippling and devastating depression.

But I did, miraculously, and now I am free.

What I am saying – as wordy and round about as I right now.

Is that I survived my divorce.

For the first time since this nightmare began, I am breathing, I am creating, and I don’t feel so much like I have to hide anymore.

And I can’t explain that feeling enough.

So consider this the beginning – because amazing things are coming, spectacular words are being written – and I am going to take you on that journey with me.

But first… I think I better spruce this website up!

I hope you are all ready for what is coming – because I don’t think anyone can shut me up and now that the words are flowing I am ready to open back up. So be prepared – because this website is going to be alive again.

I’ve got things to spill, like giant dogs, and odd new hobbies… and this marathon I am training for 😉
