Fan Art Fridays [2]

9:21 AM Vi Nguyen 0 Comments

Even though I'm totally not an artist and a classic noob when it comes to graphic design, I thought I'd still share with you all my "fan art" and "Obsidian movie poster" for the Daemon Invasion for today's Fan Art Friday.



I know, I know, it's very mediocre. But the prettiness of the movie poster and the sexiness that is Daemon/Pepe makes up for it right?!!? I really do love that cookie scene and when Jen showed the fans the actual video to the cookie scene, oh, I melted! So sexy!!!

Anyways, what do you think?

Onyx Teasers & Daemon's YA Crush Tourney Results

12:26 PM Vi Nguyen 0 Comments

Congrats to Daemon for winning his first YA Crush Tourney! Was there ever any doubt?!

Jen treated fans to a whole slew of teasers from quite a few of her books. Yay!

Onyx Teaser

Daemon pulled me up against his chest and lowered his head, eyes snapping with restrained anger. “Don’t hit, Kitten. It’s not nice.”

Daemon's POV - Onyx Teaser

And I wasn’t thinking about the running kind of workout. Horizontal cardio. Hell, stand up, sit down, on the floor, anywhere anytime kind of cardio. I wasn’t picky.

Deity Teasers

Seth chuckled, and then his mouth was making its way to mine, and I opened for him. The edges of his hair tickled my cheeks as the kiss deepened. His fingers drifted down the front of my blouse and then they were sliding over the bare skin of my stomach.

I delighted in the feel of him pressed against my side, the way his breath stirred the hair at my temple. Last night hadn’t been a weird dream. Or if it had been, I wasn’t sure I wanted to wake up. Maybe he hadn’t been afraid of me running off when he slept. Perhaps he had searched for my closeness the way I sought his.

Cursed Teasers

A small grin tugged his lips. “Ember, you don’t know me as well as I know you.” His hands drifted up to my shoulders before sliding back down to the cuffs of my sweater, as if he was trying to warm me up. He was. His touch, even though it wasn’t against my skin, was doing strange things to me—affecting me in a way that created a warm flush all over my body. I struggled to find something intelligent to say. I came up with zilch. So I settled on a question that had been bugging me. “Why did you keep coming back to see me, Hayden?”

Concentrating on anything other than kissing him while, well, kissing him, didn’t seem likely.

Unchained Teaser

Julian squeezed her hands gently. “It’s okay,” he whispered just below her ear. “I’m not going to hurt you. If you tell me to stop, I will.”

Teaser from Deleted Scene in Obsidian

We argued the whole way into town: over the radio station, the speed limit, if my brakes needed replacing, and why I should get better tires before it snowed. When we finally arrived at the Mom and Pop style diner, Daemon got out the car first, hitting the automatic locks before I could open the door. “Argh!” I hit the unlock button and threw the door open. “Jerk!” Casting a sly grin over his shoulder, he opened the door for me. “Ladies first.”

I don't know about you, but I'm REALLY intrigued by that Unchained teaser. I want more!!!

Car Scene from Pure - Aiden's POV

10:05 PM Vi Nguyen 0 Comments

In case you didn't know, Aiden won the YA Crush Tourney on Friday! Yay! It was a pretty close call, but JLA fans united and brought him to the finish line.

As a thank you, Jen has written that oh-so-delicious car scene from Pure in Aiden's POV.

Enjoy!

Car Scene from Pure - Extended Cut

12:00 PM Vi Nguyen 1 Comments

As if yesterday wasn't insane enough, with all the teasers and goodies, Jen treated the fans to this EXTENDED CUT from the very special Car Scene in Pure. If you've read the book, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't read Pure yet, seriously, what are you waiting for?!

Enjoy!

Aiden glanced over at me, his lips parting. The intensity is gaze, the hunger I saw in his eyes, left me a bit dizzy. His chest rose sharply.
“Thank you,” I said, my voice sounding thick. “For doing all of this for me.”
“You don’t need to thank me.”
“When am I ever supposed to thank you?”
“When I do something truly worth you thanking me for,” Aiden responded.
Those words struck a deep chord in me, and I don’t know who moved first. Who leaned over the center console, who was the first to cross the invisible line between us? Who broke the rules first? Aiden? Me? All I did know was that we both moved. Aiden’s hands were around my face, and mine fell to his chest. To where his heart beat as fast as mine, and in an instant, our lips met. 
This kiss was nothing like the first one we shared. It left us both breathless by its raw intensity. There wasn’t a moment of hesitation or indecision. There was just want and need and a thousand other powerful, crazy things. His lips scorched mine, his hands dropping to my shoulders, sliding down my arms. My skin burned under my sweater, but oh, this was so much more than just a kiss. It was the way he touched the deepest parts of me. My heart and soul would never be the same. It was nearly overwhelming to realize something as powerful as that and it brought a sense of urgency that pushed me into the unknown.
Suddenly, I wasn’t close enough.
Without breaking contact, I started to rise, and Aiden seemed to be thinking along the same lines, because he gripped my waist, pulling me over the center and into his lap. Vaguely, I thanked the makers of the Hummer for the ingenuity behind making it such a roomy vehicle and for tinting the windows.
Aiden’s fingers pressed fire into my spine, and all thought fled. Urgency burned between us, deepening the kiss. A rich ache blossomed, spreading out of control. I pressed closer and one of his hands snaked down my hip and over my thigh. We kind of got lost in one another at that point. Someone, and I was pretty sure it wasn’t me, hit the control on the seat. However I couldn’t be sure of that. My hands were everywhere. So were Aiden’s.
But my body was flat against his, so I really didn’t care how the seat ended up the way it did. His lips left me spinning, gasping for air. I couldn’t get enough him. My hips moved toward him, my hands slid to his shoulders, down his arms, and under his shirt. The feel of his skin against mine was practically my undoing—or his. A button came undone and then another. Things spiraled madly. Everywhere he touched, my skin burned and my soul sung.
And even though I felt like I would come apart at any second, this was so much more than a physical thing. Desperation clung to the edge of each kiss, to the way our bodies moved and pressed together. So tightly I could feel his heart thundering. And in the midst of all these glorious sensations, I realized something so important, so powerful.
Aiden could tell me anything at this point. He could fight what lay between us night and day. He could speak only in lies from here on out. Aiden could even say he regretted what was happening. It didn’t matter.
I would always, always know differently.
Even if space separated us, or a dozen rules were imposed to keep us apart, and we could never be together, I would always know.
Aiden jerked back as far as he could in the seat, which really wasn’t very far at all. “Alex . . .” he breathed, voice ragged and thick. He trailed a finger over the bottom of my lip, around the faint scar. “Stop—we have to stop. I have to stop.”
I didn’t want to stop. Like ever. Capturing his hand, I pulled it from my lips and pressed my mouth against his again. He didn’t resist me at first. No. Aiden wanted this as badly as I did. I could tell by the way he moved, by the way his hands clenched my hips. Again, his heart pounded against mine, and I felt like I couldn’t breathe. But he wretched his lips away from mine all too quickly, and this time, he held me back.
“I have to stop now,” he said again, breathing heavily. “If I don’t, I’ll never be able to stop. I’ll never be able to let you go if we do this.”
“Then don’t let me go,” I reasoned, reaching out and cupping his face. I brushed my thumbs over the smooth lines of his face. The rational part of my brain—the little part that dealt in logic, knew this was coming. The other part, full of hope and so much more, just didn’t want to let it all go yet.
He caught my hands, lowering to his chest. Aiden held them against his heart. “Not like this. You deserve so much more than this to be your —”
“I don’t care if it’s here or on the moon. Aiden, please—”
Aiden moved so fast, I didn’t have a chance to react. His hand moved up my back and sunk deep into my hair. He sort of cradled me to him, and when he spoke again, I felt his breath stir my hair. “It’s not that I don’t want this, Alex. I do. More than even you do.”
Somehow I doubted that. Because every part of me still wanted to.

Oh, Aiden! <3


Don't forget Jen will be releasing the car scene in Aiden's POV!

Deity Teasers and Aiden's YA Crush Tourney Results

1:00 AM Vi Nguyen 0 Comments

Well, yesterday was a pretty crazy day (more so in the real world, sad to say, but also in the book world - which is an exciting thing)! In the midst of hiding in my studying bubble, I had to come out to support my favorite guy, Aiden!

The Queen of teasers coughed up some pretty awesome incentives for the fans as the battle between Aiden and Ash went down. Both boys are swoonworthy and both advocates fought hard, but in the end, there can be only one winner -> AIDEN!!!!!!

WOOHOO!!!! YAY!!!!! It was definitely neck & neck there the whole time, but luckily, JLA fans came through.

I'm telling you, JLA fans are CRAZY awesome!!!!

You know what this means don't you?! Jen has promised fans the EPIC "car scene" from Pure in Aiden's POV. Oh yeah, baby!!! Can't wait for that!!!

For now, I've gathered all the awesome Deity teasers for you to drool over:

Aiden Teaser
 “I know things are different, Alex, but I will always be here for you. I will always help you.” He paused. “How can you ever doubt that?”

Seth Teaser 
I pushed at him weakly. “Get off.” “I was trying to.” Seth rolled over, running his hands down his face.
 
Scene from Deity 
“That’s enough,” Aiden said, shoving Seth as he let go. “Back off.” 
“You really want to get involved in this?” Seth asked. “Right now?” 
“More than you would ever know.” 
Akasha fizzled out and Seth pushed Aiden. “Oh, I think I do. And you know what, it’s something I think about… every time. You get what I’m saying?” 
“That’s the best you got, Seth?” Aiden went toe-to-toe with the Apollyon. 
And suddenly, I knew this wasn’t just about what had just happened. This was more. “Because I think you and I both know the truth about that.” 
Oh, dear gods, this was turning into a boy fight. 
Seth moved so fast it was hard to see him. An arm cocked back, aiming right for Aiden’s jaw. Reacting just as fast, Aiden caught Seth’s arm and threw him back again. 
“Try it again, and I won’t stop,” Aiden warned. 
A second later they were crashing into each other.

There were even a couple of Onyx teasers too:

Scene from Onyx
“Whatever, Kitten.” Daemon gripped my hips, lifting me onto the edge of the desk with an ease that was disturbing. “I know better.”

Onyx from Daemon's POV 
In between the kisses that unraveled me and then pieced me back together, I spoke things I never told anyone.

Oh, and did I mention Pepe/Daemon sure knows how to make you want a cookie! So adorable!




And don't forget that it's Daemon's turn on Monday!

Behind the Scenes of the Lux Series Trailers

11:45 AM Vi Nguyen 1 Comments

After a slight mishap this morning on HEA USA Today, Jen thankfully released the awesome Behind-the-Scenes video for the Lux series today on her blog.





Oh boy, how sexy was that when Pepe/Daemon took a bite out of that cookie?!?! Swoon!!!!

Everyone seems to agree that "The Laptop Scene" is their favorite, lol. It was pretty funny to see one of the West brothers working the lights/lamp during that scene.

And for those of you who have read Onyx, I'm sure you'll recognize some pivotal scenes being teased in this video. So excited for the Onyx trailer!!!

Looks like they all had a TON of fun.

Since the fan art for Jen's books are slowly, but surely increasing, I thought I'd start the Fan Art Fridays feature to showcase them instead of it being all random. I also tagged the other fan art posts w/the FAF tag, even though they weren't posted on Friday, it's just to keep it consistent and all in one place.

It might not be every week, but it will always be on Friday, and I might have either one or many to showcase so stay tuned!

This one was recently done by the fabulous Jennifer Avey, love her artwork!

Jennifer Answers Some FAQs

10:51 AM Vi Nguyen 0 Comments

Jen recently posted some answers to FAQs she's been getting from fans:

Q. The digital versions of Obsidian (both B&N and Amazon) are saying that there is a sneak peek of Onyx, but it's not there. What's up with that? And can you send me Onyx because it doesn't have it and where can I get the two chapters?
A. I don't know why the digital formats say that. It's only ever been in the print version. Truth is, I don't have anything to do with that. I just write books. Entangled Teen is aware of the misleading page at the beginning of the digital formats and are trying to get it rectified. I can't send you Onyx. Sad face. Right this moment, only the print version of Obsidian has the two chapters, but I'm sure they'll be a sneak peek coming up soon and near release.

Q. Can you do an interview?
A. I pretty much never turn down an interview, but it may take a week or so for me to answer the questions, so please make sure you have time for me to do the questions. Sometimes I avoid my email. *Chuckles* Shameful, but true.

Q. Can you send me swag?
A. No. Not right now. I'm not sending out any swag, not even w/ interviews right now. What I have is currently allocated for other giveaways and what not. I need to restock on the swag and it will change in the future, but I am not sending out any swag at this moment.

Q. Is Obsidian being made into a film?
A. Unless you know something I don't, not yet. Giggle. The pictures that everyone is seeing, featuring Pepe and Sztella, are from the book trailers that were filmed in early June.

Q. What is a book trailer?
A. It's like a movie trailer for books. Obsidian, Onyx, and Opal all have filmed book trailers.

Q. Where can I view the trailer?
A. Obsidian (live on July 6th) and the Behind the Scenes footage (July 13th) will be premiered on USA TODAY. No matter where you live in the world, you'll be able to view it there. It will also go up on my blog and I'm sure other blogs out there.

Q. How many books are in the Covenant Series?
A. Five total and two novellas. And here they are in order: Daimon, Half-Blood, Pure, Deity, Elixir, Apollyon, and Sentinel. Five total and one novella in the Lux series: Shadows, Obsidian, Onyx, Opal, Untitled 4, and Untitled 5.

Q. What about Cursed?
A. Right now, it's a standalone.

Q. Covenant spin-off?
A. Whoa. I about fell out of my chair when I got an email asking about that. I'm not even finished writing Sentinel yet, so I don't know anything about a Covenant spin off.

She also gave fans a cute picture of Pepe & Sztella to smile at:

Welcome to July folks!

You know what that means - a new PotM & QotM! Take a peek at the sidebar over there and vote for your FAVORITE COVENANT COVER and laugh it out over this hilarious QUOTE FROM PURE!

Also, the results are in for the FAN FAVORITE BOOK:


Obsidian killed it, with Pure coming in 2nd! I did love Pure a TON but I guess I'll have to give Obsidian a second read because even though I loved it, like all JLA books, it didn't affect me like the Covenant series did?!

We shall see!!!

P.S. Speaking of re-reads, be sure to check back tomorrow for more news regarding a certain challenge that is supposed to start on JULY 9TH!
