I expect book three of the Left Series to be finished later this year. I truly appreciate your interest in Ryker's and Baylee's story. I said before that I wrote the story for a reason. It was one that kept me up at night and wouldn't let go until it was on paper. Recently, those characters have been screaming for me to begin their next chapter so there really is no choice but to move forward. Because I really enjoyed writing Left and creating Left's characters, I'm confident writing There and creating new twists and turns for Ryker and Baylee will be as exciting and enjoyable (for me and the reader ツ ). Keep in mind that I'll make posts here, on my blog (www.trgraves.com), and my Facebook page when the book is finally released. (less)

Grave Bound (Secrets, #1) (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: Some secrets follow you to the grave. Others send you there. Emily Riddle has lived her entire nineteen years inside a patriarchal commune led by her father and her stepbrothers. There are more rules than she cares to admit, but the most important one, keep it in the commune, is the one most difficult for her to abide by… especially since the only people willing to champion her cause live on the outside. When Emily learns her father and brothers have promised her to Lorenzo, a man she despises down to her core, she rebels. No matter the consequences, she refuses to marry someone who'd rather beat her than caress her. A day of hooky that starts out as a tiny act of defiance—sneaking out of the commune for a swim—soon turns into the best day of her life. After spending time with Levi, a man camping near the lake, she finds what true romance looks like and catches a glimpse into a future that's filled with love and admiration rather than hate and submission. That tiny peek is enough to change the course of Emily's existence and makes it nearly impossible for her to go back to the commune and pretend she will ever be able to tolerate a life chosen for her rather than the life she longs for. One that includes Levi. Fighting to escape the commune, its leaders, and her fiancé proves to be more dangerous than Emily ever expected. The secrets she knows, as the commune leader's daughter, will either follow her to her grave or send her, and Levi, there.

“With his revelation,...I shattered into a million shards. I felt each piece as it splintered and separated from the whole like a glass I had broken the day before. Debris flew everywhere. It left me without any option but to pick each broken piece up, analyze it, and find out where it belonged. I had to find out where I belonged.

T.R. Graves, Warriors of the Cross

“Forgive me, Lord, if ever I should wrap myself
in pharisiac robes when I see another fall
In no way am I greater
because of another’s weakness.
At the most it only turns the eyes
of the crowd away from my own frailty.
Few of us would ever think of hurting someone
physically
but too many times we have used the power
of "talk" to kill.
Here, Lord, take these stones I hold.”

T.R. Graves Guardians of the Cross - 1st Paragraph of Chapter 1 - Beginning to Heal

Lost forever was the wide-eyed innocence I’d embraced with a vengeance the first twenty-four years of my life. In its place sat a gaping hole of sorrow, the direct result of a lost life, a stolen childhood, and a kidnapped soul.

T.R. Graves Guardians of the Cross - 1st Paragraph of the Prologue:

Julia strolled along the beach with James, enjoying the beautiful orange and yellow shades of the sunset. The way the scene mirrored off the ocean's blue glass horizon made for a spectacular sight. The serenity of the setting - along with the calming, salt-infused breeze - camouflaged the danger speeding toward her and her unborn baby faster than a just fired bullet.
