Piercing the Fold Series Blog Tour Update, Audiobook Teaser Coming, and Surfacing the Rim: Book 2 Teaser #3

Good Morning!
Blog tour content is coming together beautifully.  And, I just got the edit copy of Surfacing the Rim: Book 2 back from my editor, Jovana Shirley.  Her and I are also working on the synopsis which I hope to share with you soon!
A big highlight coming to the tour is an audio excerpt from the Piercing the Fold: Book 1 audiobook that will be releasing in 2013!  It has been a tedious production with directing the multiple voice over talents. But, I know that it will be a unique experience for the listener and that is what matters most to me. 

Make sure you join the Surfacing the Rim: Book 2 Release Party on Facebook. So far we are well over 100 guests and the party is still over a month away!  The blog tour will have giveaways and the release party will also, so hop over and join the party! Here is the link:!/events/415960838487386/?fref=ts

For now, I hope you enjoy the excerpt from Surfacing the Rim: Book 2.  *Remember, this is raw and unedited. Adjustments to this excerpt may occur between now and publication in March 14 2013.*

Surfacing the Rim: Book 2
Venessa Kimball


I take a deep breath as I leave my room and walk down the hall to Ezra’s suite. 

The door is partially open.  I knock softly.

I hear Ezra call from within. “Come on  in Jes.” 

I walk in. Ezra is pulling out his suitcase and duffle bag.   I had not been in his room since we moved in. To be honest, it looked pretty much the same as it did the first night I walked through the house.  There was one visible difference though.  I walk straight over to it.  An ant farm.  I grinned a little. “Friends of yours.”

I could feel his smile.  I turned to look at him. He is leaning against his dresser grinning. He remembers the last time we had a conversation about  his  ants. Ezra sighs and plays along.   “Yes. Yes they are." His smile falls and I don’t understand why, until he asks, "Will you take care of them if anything happens to me?”

His  simple question hits me square in the chest.  My grin fades, but I do not shift my gaze from his. He is waiting for my answer. The question is not simple any more. Rather a complex request and an intense responsibility on my part.  My reply is simple, but weighs heavily on my heart because of what we are both implying now; humanity.  “Yes. I will take care of them.”

Ezra nods silently. “Put out your hand.”

I put my hand out reluctantly with my palm open. My voice is filled with curiosity. A smile slyly,  “Why?”

Ezra places his closed fist above my hand and released a copper medallion on a chain into my palm.  The metal is cold at first, but quickly warms in my hand. I pull it closer to see the details of it. It is a device. The workings within the device are intricately crafted and  beautiful. I  ask, “What is this?”

Ezra puts his hands in his pockets. “ It is the first generation copula Jes. Sebastian asked me to give it to you.  He told me that this is your legacy now.”
