Lucille was stolen, and Jaspierre tossed into prison. It was ridiculous. She started doing jumping jacks. The world appeared to have changed in the most vicious, unrelentingly difficult way. Yes, she had made some mistakes. She murdered, but even though he deserved it, it was still technically illegal. Couldn’t they cut her some slack because Lucille was stolen? Because Pierre was murdered? But no, somehow, that was not quite how it worked.

They should have just given her a ticket or a slap on the wrist. It was her first offense! Shouldn’t everyone get to kill at least one person before they had to go to prison? She understood men like Chance needed to be locked up. But a successful woman like her? It made no sense. Everyone was a little naughty; what’s next? Every single speeding person locked up? Anyone who smoked in a non-smoking zone thrown into prison for years? Where would they draw the line?


An excerpt for your amusement. 1

I’ve been flying through the editing of Jaspierre’s Last Chance, and I thought maybe you’d like a little sneak peek:

 

Somehow, Edward just didn’t seem like he would ever see it that way. What happened to him to make him so sick and twisted? She didn’t understand it. Hadn’t he burned corpses when he was a child? Did his parents simply hide the harsh realities of life? Was he just naive? Did he know that it was normal? Just like speeding? Or did he really have no idea? Mother, had never gotten caught. Jaspierre didn’t know how many people mother killed, but she was guessing that it would be around thirty or more. Jaspierre had now barely killed five people. Seem like nothing in comparison. So why on earth would he make such a big deal about it? She just didn’t get it.

Do you think that you’d be a serial killer if you had been raised like Jaspierre?

Finale

The final book of the Jaspierre Trilogy is very exciting.  I can’t say it enough, I”m SO excited to have you start reading it!  I had planned when I started this book, that the ending would be a certain way, but by the time I got to the end, I realized it was going to end quite a bit differently than I expected.  It’ll be at the editors this Thursday, and then I”m off to the races, this weekend I am challenging myself to write the entire first draft of Padlocked Penthouse.  I’ve been reading your survey results (You are on my mailing list, aren’t you?) and you guys have so many, many sick ideas.I love it!

Thanks for all the endless support, and I can’t wait to show you what’s next.

Love, Mixi
