Teaser Tuesday: A teaser and a look at the playlist for The Scribe

So, I promised a teaser and a first look at the playlist for THE SCRIBE. Now, the majority of the music I listened to while writing this book was instrumental or atmospheric. Lots of Loreena McKennitt, Dead Can Dance, Sigur Ros. It was a very moody book, musically. So I tried to think of a song that really captured Ava and Malachi and how their relationship develops. It’s a little bit older, but I think I found it.

Bring Me To Life by Evanescence.

How can you see into my eyes like open doors?
Leading you down into my core where I’ve become so numb
Without a soul my spirit’s sleeping somewhere cold
Until you find it there and lead it back home

Wake me up inside
Wake me up inside
Call my name and save me from the dark
Bid my blood to run
Before I come undone
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

And here’s the video for the song, if you haven’t heard it:


You probably wanted that teaser, right? Well, considering that yesterday, The Scribe became eligible for pre-order on Amazon, and because within a day, you amazing readers had already already put it at #31 on the Contemporary Fantasy list, I just decided to post the entire first chapter for you.

  1. Oh I love this song, It comes up on my Pandora frequently! and Loreena McKennitt is fantastic. Cannot wait for this book.

  2. Wow, Who is she???

    I had best get my writing done quickly, because I know what I will be doing when this book gets delivered to my iPad.

    The images are so evocative and so real. I am so glad that you have the opportunity to visit the places where you set your books. Reading your words makes the places come alive.

    One question, do you take your photos from the ground level as well? I have many photos of streets in Tallin, Riga, Reims, Aix en Provence and Arles that are taken from that “on the ground” perspective!

  3. Love this group. I always thought Swimming Home would be great for the part in your book when B decides to change without telling Gio. Love the teaser and already preordered my kindle copy of The Scribe.
