Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!
Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date. I should be getting edits for the story soon.
Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Jun was on his way up to meet Ash, and ran into TK (from Bunny Omega on the Run), while exiting the elevator.
In this weekend's snippet, I'm skipping ahead a little bit. Jun meets a few more artists from Adan Records, and learns once again that Ash can't stop talking about him. Now, they're alone in the Artist's Lounge....
Sticking my thumb over my shoulder, I glanced at the now closed door. “They didn’t have to leave.”
Ash sighed before standing. “Naw. They wanted to leave earlier, but I convinced them to stay.”
“In case I didn’t show up?” I only asked based on what the others had said, though I didn’t understand why I mattered so much.
He chewed on the corner of his lip and nodded. “I wasn’t sure if you would. Anyway....”
**That's ten, but I've included a little more for your reading pleasure.**
He clasped his hands in front of him. “Take a seat, and let me get you something to drink. Do you want coffee, tea, water, beer, wine, soda? I think there might be hot chocolate and some coolers, too.”
While he rustled through the pod cups, I took a seat at the end of the couch. “Just a water is good, thanks.” Any more caffeine, and my leopard cat would jump right out of me, while alcohol would give him complete control over my actions.
“Oh, okay.” He busied himself at the beverage and snack counter while I took in the rest of the room.
Everything was white, the walls, the ceiling, and all the furniture, including two full-body massage chairs. At the far end were two computer stations and a large table for eating or maybe meetings, with a large shelving unit dividing the space. The color in the room came from the framed albums released under Adan Records from their various artists. All in order of release, the newest being Stay from AI.
Ash returned with two glasses of water, and after handing me one, he plopped down on the couch. Right beside me. Maybe two inches between us when there were several feet of unoccupied space on the other side of him. I didn’t mind. I wasn’t repulsed by him or his sweet vanilla and brown sugar scent, but I worried I didn’t smell the freshest. Though I gather he didn’t mind since he stayed by my side. And at some point he had changed since I’d seen him in the morning, no longer in the button-down silver shirt and black leather pants. Instead, he wore sweat pants and an oversized hoodie. With only the two of us in the room, I actually felt overdressed.
HIS OMEGA ON STAGE
Shifter Towers book four
For leopard cat shifter, Jun, being the rogue alpha in high school hadn’t helped him as an adult. Though he sometimes believed he was ready to find a mate, past experiences taught him that those he loves eventually leave him. So, he protects his heart by seeing omegas looking for nothing more than a one-night stand. Until he runs into someone from his past.
As the first omega signed to Adan Records, AI is anxious for the release of his debut album. Being a leopard cat shifter instead of an actual leopard like the rest of his family has always made him feel small and insignificant. But now he’s about to shine bright in front of the world, all on his own, without an alpha by his side. He doesn’t need one, and definitely doesn’t have time for one. Though when he runs into someone from his past who knows him as Ash, he wants to give this alpha all of his attention.
On StageBut with all the problems that fame brings, will Ash be able to make a relationship work? Will Jun fight for the omega he’s sure is his fated mate? Or will they just let each other slip away, believing what they have just isn’t enough?.
