From the day my mom dropped me on my head she knew I was going to be special. One morning while I was flossing my teeth in the shower, I decided to prove her right. What could possibly be more special than writing a novel? Easier said than done, though, right?

“Wait, so you do love me?" I asked, hope welling in my heart.
She growled and pounded her fist into a locker, leaving a fist-shaped dent. "Stop it, Justin. Stop it!"
I grabbed her shoulders. "Look at me and tell me you don't love me," I said. "Do it and I'll never bother you again."
"I don't love you," she mumbled.
"Look at me when you say it!"
She turned to me, her eyes hard but dull and faded. "I don't love you."
I let her go. My heart turned to lead, the heavy lump sagging in my chest. "Well, if there are agents out there looking to kill me, I guess it would be a mercy."
I turned to leave. Her hand gripped my shoulder.
"Please listen to me, Justin."
I pushed her hand away but didn't turn to face her. I couldn't let her see the tears welling in my eyes. "Why? What does it matter?"
"It just does. I—I don't want to see you hurt."
I took a deep shuddering breath. "You're not doing a very good job of it." I walked away and left her standing there.”

“Bryan helped me up.  "How can you be so good one minute then clumsy the next?"
I shrugged.  "I've never been very athletic.  Not unless you count fencing."
"You made fences?”

Amy Armstrong Hi John! Thanks so much for accepting my friend request. Hope you have a wonderful day!

John Corwin Heh, no worries, Alana! I was a bit surprised by the response I got. :(


Alana ~ The Book Pimp Wow.. some of those people on the feedback thread really are haters. I couldn't help myself- I had to attempt to defend your honor. Doubt I changed any minds-

Some of the choice words used for Daemon (in Obsidian) I would love to tattoo across their profile

John Corwin Thanks, Tami! It's all part of my plan for world domination.

John Corwin Thanks, Pixie!

I just finished last night. Loved it! Really looking forward to the sequel!

John Corwin Thanks, Tami! That means a lot to me. The sequel is in editing now and I hope it'll be out this year. :D


message 5: by Tami

Tami OMG John, I am reading SBoM and I am about 80% done and I AM HOOKED. This read has been so entertaining. I haven't had the chance to read your other books as of yet, but based on this book alone, you are a brilliant writer. Really sorry if I am coming off as a kiss-ass, but reading IS my past time and when I enjoy a book this much, I like to let the author know. Looks like this is going to be a series and that makes me smile my big nerd smile!


message 4: by Tami

Tami So, am I seeing things correctly? Is SBoM only available in paperback and not for Kindle?


 * Kazzy * -aka Stryker- Thanks for the invite John... looking forward to reading your book with the rest of the posse!!
