I recently got a request for a teaser from Lights that features Clementine. She’s one of my favorite characters, so I was more than happy to oblige. Originally, I posted the teaser on my Facebook page, but I decided to share it here, as well. Without further ado, here’s the teaser:
“It was my idea, you know,” Clementine said, rubbing her nose with one hand, hiding half her face for just a moment. “Blackmailing you. Davis and Henry didn’t go for it at first. We argued about it for weeks. But eventually, they came around. Nothing else was working. There was no other way. So we all went in on it together, just like we do everything else—together.” She gave him a smile that was half-grimace. “I didn’t think it would be so hard to lie to you. You were all just names on paper. You weren’t real to us yet. We didn’t know you.”
“Would it have made a difference?” Nasser heard himself ask. “If you had known us then?”
She didn’t answer for a moment. Then she shook her head. “Not if I believed that was the only way to break the curse,” she said. “It’s just the three of us. We’re all we have. And when all you have is each other, nobody else really matters. You know what I mean.

Ah I need more – the end of Brightly was so mean, it just left me hanging not knowing what’s happened to any of the characters. I need to know what’s happening to them all, I’m invested in what happens to them now which just goes to show how well written they are.
Hi, Sandra! Your comment completely made my day–I can’t tell you how happy I am that you’re invested in what happens to these characters. It means so much to me to know that there are readers out there who care about them as much as I do.
(And, well, I do feel a little guilty about the ending of Brightly. It was a pretty stressful way to end a book!)
But don’t worry! I’m in the last stages of writing Lights (Flicker #3). After that, it will be off to my beta readers–and then, before long, it’ll be out there in the wild for you to read! I promise you’ll find out what happens to everyone. I hope you’ll continue looking forward to it. 🙂
