Want a sneak peek at Glitter?
Celebrate the year of the anti-heroine as Marie Antoinette meets Breaking Bad... with a little Mr. Robot for good measure!
Outside the palace of Versailles, it’s the future. Inside, the people dress, eat, and act like it’s the eighteenth century--with the added bonus of technology to make court life lavish, privileged, and frivolous. The palace has every indulgence, but for one pretty young thing, it’s about to become a very beautiful prison.
When Danica witnesses an act of murder by the young king, her mother makes a cruel power play, blackmailing the king into making Dani his queen. When she turns eighteen, Dani will marry the most ruthless and dangerous man of the court. She has six months to escape her terrifying destiny. Six months to raise enough money to disappear into the real world beyond the palace gates.
Her ticket out? Glitter. A drug so powerful that a tiny pinch mixed into a pot of rouge or lip gloss can make the wearer hopelessly addicted. Addicted to a drug Dani can sell for more money than she ever dreamed.
But in Versailles, secrets are impossible to keep. And the most dangerous secret—falling for a drug dealer outside the palace walls—is one risk she has to take.

Hello! It's me. I promise I'm still alive. :)
First: I need to publicly thank you all one more time for making the Wings series such an incredible success. Thank you for reading.
And, I owe you all an apology... I have been meaning to post this for weeks. Weeks! It has just been so busy. If you hadn't heard, I've got two books and a short story coming out next year--Earthbound (the first in a new series), a stand-alone ghost story called Life After Theft, and a short post-apocalyptic story called Nature in Saundra Mitchell's Defy the Dark anthology! So in between tour stops, I have been doing a lot of writing. :)
Anyway, here is the deleted scene for Destined. It is actually a scene you've kind of seen before... except this time it is all from Shar's point-of-view, and some of the details were changed in the editing process as well (for example, Laurel never sees what Yuki does with the roses).
Warning: mega spoilers for anyone who hasn't finished all four books!
The following scene takes place in Illusions shortly after Klea introduces Yuki at Laurel's house. As always with these deleted scenes: potential spoilers follow!
Sorry it has taken me so long to post this--it is the last little "prequel" I wrote for Illusions. This one was bonus Nook material for Barnes & Noble while electronic copies of Wings were being given away free in their stores. The story takes place from a new point-of-view... one I guarantee you've never seen before. :)
