The Becoming: Excerpt #9 — In Which We Meet Remy Angellette

I can’t believe how fast the release of The Becoming is coming up! Seems like the days are absolutely flying by, and I’m seriously counting them off on my day planner. 🙂

Just to drop a quick note here, I’ve updated the Where to Buy the Series page to add the cover, synopsis, and what others are saying about the book for your perusal, since the synopsis isn’t really up in very many places at the moment. Feel free to browse, and if you’re interested in preordering, I hope you hit the link on that page and do so!

To move on, I’m continuing my series of excerpts from The Becoming in anticipation of its release (and next week, I’ve got a real treat coming for you guys!). For the past several weeks, I’ve posted a series of excerpts from the novel, introducing you to the major characters of The Becoming and the general situation they find themselves stuck in.

This week, we meet the remaining member of the future team, Remy Angellette, and hints of the danger our characters find themselves in are touched on. So hit the jump below to read the excerpt!

It’s now five weeks until the release of the audiobook of The Becoming, and in anticipation of that release, I am posting a weekly series of posts pimping out the novel in question, including excerpts from the novel, songs from the playlists that I’ve compiled, and whatever other fun stuff comes to mind as I progress through this.

The Becoming: Excerpt #5 — In Which Flirting Takes Place and Someone Gets Nauseous

I didn’t quite get the chance to get this post up yesterday; I spent my entire weekend in Atlanta having fun and seeing Thrice live in concert (for those of you who are interested, if you listen to their 2005 album Vheissu, the entire thing essentially appears on my playlist for this trilogy). It was a great show and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. 🙂

That said, I’m now back to work on the third book (epilogue to go and it will be 95% done!) and back to promoting next month’s release of The Becoming. As we’re now at the six-weeks-until point of its release, you guys get yet another little snippet of the book. (Hopefully soon, I’ll have that playlist info; I’m considering posting it all at once on or right after release day, perhaps with the addition of song samples.)

In this excerpt, we learn exactly what makes Ethan nauseous.

The Becoming: Excerpt #4 — In Which Cade and Ethan Make a New Friend

It’s now seven weeks until the release of the audiobook of The Becoming, and in anticipation of that release, I am posting a weekly series of posts pimping out the novel in question, including excerpts from the novel, songs from the playlists that I’ve compiled, and whatever other fun stuff comes to mind as I progress through this.

Obviously, things have been a little hectic on my end, so I haven’t been able to get the playlist posts compiled yet (though they’re–hopefully!–coming soon). Still, at least you get some excerpts from the novel, yes?

Throughout the excerpts, I’ve been introducing the major characters of The Becoming and the general situation they find themselves stuck in. And believe me, that situation isn’t exactly GOOD.

In this week’s excerpt, Cade and Ethan meet a new friend, rifles are waved around, and demands aren’t exactly met.
