Reading in a Busy World


Reading. Writing. You need to do both to grow.

Writing and Rambling

Most bookworms complain at some point or another that there’s just not enough time to read. Lives are busy, work and home and friends and family all clamor for your attention, and many days it’s hard to find a half hour of personal time to devote to the book on your nightstand. Certainly it’s the rare Sunday afternoon when you can sprawl on the couch with a pile of books and a hot drink and while away the hours.

Of course, reading is like writing, in that if it’s a priority for you, you make the time. The hour before bed, the time spent commuting, a book stashed in your desk for your lunch break — these things become sacred and automatic. But what about scheduling a chunk of time for an all-out reading binge? If writers can devote November to writing a novel, can’t readers devote some quality hours to making…

Toni Decker Books

This week we’re sharing an excerpt from IMAGES ETERNAL. Picking an excerpt is hard work. Much harder than I ever anticipated. But I picked this one. So… ::shrugs:: …hope you like it.

~0X0~

Mandy strained to hear the mumbled voices, but it sounded like the usual pre-set conversation. Planning the song order and discussing a few shows lined up in the near future. Tapping her finger along the edge of the camera’s lens, Mandy wanted to scream for them to get started already. She hadn’t planned to be here all day. On the other side of town a band waited for her. A band who actually wanted her to take their pictures.

“You know, Angel,” a dulcet voice sang behind her. “I don’t recall sending press invites out for this rehearsal.”

Mandy stilled. Hot breath warmed her neck. Every hair on her body stood straight up and a few curled…

First, let me say, it’s been a week since IMAGES ETERNAL released. 4500x2820_Amazon_eBook_Images_Eternal_final v1.0I mean it’s been a week. And whoa, what a week.
Things we’ve learned:

Images Eternal Inspiration: Lucien


LOVE the eyes!

Toni Decker Books

Lucien’s character in Images Eternal grew from another book (Anticipated release date January 2015), but quickly took on his own life. When we started writing him, we knew he’d be physically young, but that he hid an old soul. They say the eyes are a window to your soul. This is so true for our boy, Lucien. Dark and light never looked so good together! So who was our inspiration? Check him out below.

 Young. Gorgeous. And a voice to make angels cry. Rock Star material for sure.

And those eyes!

CAUTION: Staring directly into them may lead to swooning and large chunks of time passing by unnoticed

(*sighs and gets lost* Oops, sorry about that.)

Lucien might not be ready for all the trials thrown at him, but an easy smile and musical laugh gets him through most things, melting your heart along the way.

Images Eternal Inspiration: Mandy


Smart and Sassy!

Toni Decker Books

It’s hard to say exactly where inspiration comes from. Images Eternal spawned from another book (which will be released January 2015) and quickly took on a life of its own. The characters took form well before we started writing them, hell they had managed to capture our hearts before the had names. <<cough*cough*MANDY*cough*cough>> So *who* did we picture while writing??

This is Mandy*. The appearance. The Attitude. Whoa.

<<do not stare directly into his eyes>> You’ve been warned.
