If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Jade Coterie

It's Friday and I have a treat. Today I wanted to share some details about my new novel. But first I'm four days into the story-a-day challenge and I have completed four short stories. I'm very happy with my outcome thus far. Now for juicy details.

This is the novel I will be revising over the coming Summer.

My new novel- The Jade Coterie

       Ebony Graves has one desire, to be a Jade in the elite courtesan group the Jade Coterie. She must complete three tests that challenge her abilities. Losing even one of these competitions means dismissal back into the hands of her abusive father. Her ex-best friend, Aurora, is out to make sure she not only loses the competition but also Kaige Donovan.When her Rune magic awakens there is only one rule, the magic doesn't work on people she loves.

Character quotes from chapters inside the book:

Ebony Graves- "It's not over until Leo roars. I'm still in this challenge." From chapter 19

Richard Graves- "Keep in mind daughter that you will fail and have nowhere to go but home." From Chapter 16

Lyla Conner- "He’s just a man Ebony. You are strong and you have magic." From Chapter 17

Aurora Craven- "Magic? Forgive me if my eyes don’t widen in fear or my knees don’t shake." From chapter 19

Pearl Graves- "She acts as if she’s never seen a ghost. I can’t blame her for fainting because of my beauty. I find I’m well intact for a ghost.” From chapter 18

 Kaige Donovan- "Oh I mind dear lady. I rather like the idea of watching you blush."  From chapter 9
