A little bit from Zach.....

Posted by [email protected] on October 24, 2015 at 9:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Over fall break I logged 14,888 words on Zach's story. Yes, it really bugs me that I didn't add it up then and figure out how close I was to 15,000. This week back to school has meant very little writing time, but I got 3304 words in today, hoping for more tomorrow. I've sent a good chunk of Zach's story to beta readers for feedback as I work toward finishing the story. I'm not 'blocked', but I will say I'm dreading some things that are coming. But, that's all I can say.....so instead, I'll share little bit from Zach...... It's a standalone coming soon, but you can read the first 6 books (or any combo of the books!) at bit.ly/AmazonADEllis


Sneak Peek!

Posted by [email protected] on October 15, 2015 at 6:50 AM Comments comments (0)

If you subscribe to my newsletter, you got this exclusive sneak peek on Tuesday. If not, here's a sneak peek at Zach. (At the end, there's a giveaway you can enter).

Zach, Torey Hope: The Later Years

Of course, time didn’t stand still.

His cousin Decker and his new girlfriend, who used to be his twin’s girlfriend, lived through a chaotic few months with a dangerous, creepy stalker issue.

His cousin Sawyer came out to the whole family, got the crap beat out of him when three homophobic bigots jumped him, and fell in love with Luke, the new martial arts instructor at The Center+.

Zach enjoyed hanging out with Zoey and her brother, Asher. His youngest cousin was right at that stage where he wanted to do everything the older guys were doing, but didn’t want to appear like he was a tag-along.

“Hey, are you coming over later to work in the garden with Zoey?” Asher asked, trying to appear nonchalant.

“Yeah, I told her I’d help her out. You going to be there to help me share in the misery?” Zach asked. Zoey loved to garden. She still had the great little plot he’d helped her build in her parents’ backyard where she could often be found on her knees, elbow-deep in the soil. Zach didn’t love gardening, but he knew it made her happy. Plus, she looked adorable in her floppy hat and cute little shorts.

“Sure, I got nothin’ better to do so I’ll be here.” Asher shrugged.

Zach, Zoey, and Asher spent many hours tending her garden and working on projects Asher needed to complete for school.

“You guys want to come over tonight? We’ll get pizza and a movie. Invite Aly too.” Zach really wanted to spend the evening alone with Zoey, but he knew Asher wanted to come over, and his own sister, Aly, would be bent out of shape if she wasn’t invited.

**********

“Come on, Asher, let’s go get the pizza. The girls can stay here and gossip or whatever it is they like to do when we’re not around.” Zach grabbed his keys and winked at Zoey over Asher’s head as they headed toward the door.

Once in the car, Zach could tell Asher was nervous about something.

“What’s up, man? You got something on your mind?” Zach tried to be nonchalant.

“I don’t know, man. It’s just something I’ve been thinking about, but I don’t want to cause problems.” Asher blushed.

“Well, we can keep it just between the two of us if you’d rather. But, you can tell me what’s on your mind. In fact, I want you to know that you can always tell or ask me things. The only time I may have to break confidentiality is if you’re involved in something dangerous.” Zach knew he could get himself stuck right in the middle of some teen/parent issues, but he also wanted Asher to know he had a friend he could talk to.

“It’s just that…I mean…,” Asher stuttered around a bit before blurting out, “You like my sister! And I’m having a real hard time getting my head around it.”

Zach had often wondered what Asher’s take on their relationship was, so he wasn’t too caught off guard at the kid’s outburst.

“I do like your sister, very much. Just like I like all of my family. But, I’m not going to try to pad my answer around you, you’re too smart for that. First, I need you to know something. Do you know that your mom, dad, you, and Zoey are in no way blood-related to my mom, dad, Aly, and me?” Zach figured the cousin thing was weighing on Asher the most.

Asher wrinkled his brow as he thought over the information Zach had just presented.

“What do you mean we’re not related? I’ve known everyone in our family as grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins my whole life.” Asher obviously doubted Zach.

Pulling over to the side of the road, Zach popped the glove compartment and pulled out a napkin and a pen. He drew a very crude family tree and began labeling it. He knew seeing it doodled out in his notebooks for years had helped him to understand there was no blood relation.

When he finished he handed it to Asher and let the kid do some deducing on his own.

“So, Zoey and I are like second cousins to Decker, Sawyer, Abby, Megan, and Kendrick. But there’s no relation between us and you and Aly? Wow, I guess I’d never really thought about it, but you’re right.”

Asher sat back against the seat and sighed in relief.

“So, you’re good with me liking your sister now?” Zach was hopeful.

“I don’t know, the guys at school have been giving me a rough time about my kissing cousins, but now that I know we’re not officially related maybe I can shut them up.” Asher shrugged.

“Well, if that doesn’t shut them up, you and I can just happen by the ball courts sometime and be sure they all have a complete understanding of the matter. Not that it’s really any of their business, but I know what it’s like to have guys messing with you.” Zach glanced at Asher, and noticed the teen wasn’t completely relaxed.

“What else is on your mind?” Zach eased the truck back onto the road as he spoke.

“I don’t know, I guess I just wonder what happens if you and Zoey don’t work out. I mean, she’s my sister, so I sort of have to stick by her side, right? But, does that mean I lose you as a friend?” Asher mumbled in embarrassment.

Zach’s heart swelled with pride and love for the kid. He’d missed a lot of Asher’s growing up years, but he appeared to have turned into a good kid.

“Well, first, I’m glad to hear you say you’d stick by Zoey’s side like any good brother should do. Even when Aly is being a pain in the ass, I love her and stand by her. Although, as I’m standing there, I have to be honest that a lot of the times I’m wanting to kick her ass too.” Zach chuckled.

“I hear ya, man. Not so much about my sister, but your sister truly is a bit of a pain. No offense.” Asher added quickly.

“None taken, you speak the truth.”

They pulled into the pizza place. Zach handed Asher some money and told him to go pick up the order. Knowing how he used to think it was cool to be trusted to do the same when he was younger he hoped the young man would too.

As they pulled back onto the road, Zach picked up the conversation where they’d ended it earlier.

“On the topic of me and Zoey not working out, I have to tell you I don’t think that will be an issue. I’ve loved that girl since the moment she was born. I know it’s hard to understand, and Zoey and I can’t even completely explain our connection, but I’ve known she’s the girl for me since before I knew about boy/girl relationships.”

He took a deep breath, not wanting to think about a time when he and Zoey weren’t together.

“But, if something ever happened to split us up, I need you to know a couple things. One, I would never give up on Zoey without a damn hard fight. Two, even if she didn’t want to be with me, I would always be here for you. Even though it’s not blood-related, we’re family and we stick together through thick and thin.”

When he looked at Asher he caught the glint of tears in the boy’s eyes. As they pulled into the driveway and the truck came to a stop, Zach held a fist out.

“We’re cool, no matter what. You got me?”

Asher nodded, swallowing thickly, and bumped his fist against Zach’s. “I got you.”

Snippet from Zach

Posted by [email protected] on October 13, 2015 at 4:10 PM Comments comments (0)

So, I'm working hard on Zach's story. Today wasn't a day when words were flowing, but I managed to get 1190 words down. I thought I'd share just a snippet of what I wrote, since it contains the ever-lovable (until he's not!) Kendrick, as well as Zach and Sawyer. It's not much, but I thought it was a good look at the Kendrick we know and love :)

 

“Wait, is any of this a surprise? Does Zoey know these plans?” Sawyer questioned.

“Do you actually think a surprise can be kept secret in this family?” Zach retorted.

“I don’t know, Sawyer kept his ‘I like cock’ surprise secret for quite a while.” Kendrick pointed out.

I am thrilled with the reviews Sawyer is getting. I wanted to share a couple of them with you. Below the reviews you will find the blurb and some teasers.


Review 1:

I was given this book for an honest review for Through the Booking Glass!!

 

WOW!! This is only my 2nd M/M book & I'm blown away!! It's more than I ever expected & I had very high expectations because author AD Ellis is so brilliant! She truly out-done herself on Sawyer!

 

This book is emotional, heartbreaking at times, hilarious when the cousins get together, heart-warming with the support of the family & friends, infuriating when stupidity runs rapid & loving! I knew I would love Sawyer just from meeting him in Decker's book! This made me love him even more!!

 

Don't let me get started on Luke!! Gahhhhh!! The stuff this man endured is like nothing I've ever read!! My heart bled for him!!

 

This book was perfect! I would highly recommend it! Love all things AD Ellis!


Review 2:

AD Ellis has once again succeeded in writing a moving story regarding such a complex subject. Sawyer’s tale about both his internal and external struggles he faced when coming out was written beautifully and realistic. AD Ellis does not gloss over the subject and write a fairy tale, she includes the love of those that accept who Sawyer immediately, the anger and/or disappointment of those who don’t, and the hatred and fear of the bigots. Although this book does include derogatory terms and hate crimes, it is very obvious that they are included for realisms (because unfortunately this stuff really happens, even today) and not intended to promote hate and discrimination. This is the first MM I have read and I’m thankful that I had the opportunity to read this outstanding book. I would recommend this 5+ star book to everybody.
