Chapter One of Captive

Yesterday I received the page proofs for Captive, which was a bit of a shock since it seems like only a couple of months ago I went through the page proofs for Forbidden! Hopefully this cold from hell will go away so I can concentrate properly next week (why do I always come down with a rotten cold as soon as the weather turns lovely and warm?)

I can hardly believe it, but there's only three and a half months until Captive hits the shelves! So I thought I should put the first chapter up on my website. If you'd like to have a read, it's here under Excerpt. I have a serious crush on the hero, Bren. Hope you enjoy!

Things happen ina whirlwind Over the Pond, don't they Christina?

Off to read your chapter with a bucket of cold water.

I've just finished reading FORBIDDEN (and really enjoyed it), Christina, so this is great timing - I get to read your next book in only a few months! Woohoo!

Good luck with the page proofs! :-)

Christina Phillips said...

Phillipa, they certainly do!! Hope you enjoyed the excerpt :-)

Kylie, I'm so glad you enjoyed Forbidden! Thanks for letting me know!

Kylie Griffin said...

I'm still in awe of your wonderful covers - FORBIDDEN & CAPTIVE. I was reading FORBIDDEN in a couple of public places and got a couple of comments both times on how striking the cover was - so, I took the opportunity to plug your book and let them know where to buy it! LOL

Hi Christina, I've just finished reading FORBIDDEN and absolutely loved it. I'm so glad to see I only have to wait a few months to read Morwyn's story.

Christina Phillips said...

Oh wow! thanks for the plugs, Kylie! That's awesome!! Berkley did such a fabulous job with both my covers!

Christina Phillips said...

Kandy, I'm so pleased you enjoyed Forbidden!! Thanks so much for letting me know!!

I ate up that excerpt like it was chocolate! But I need a whole box to satisfy my craving! Can't wait for Captive to release!!

Christina Phillips said...

April! thank you so much! I'm so pleased you enjoyed the excerpt!!

You're so right -- it seems like publishing is such a "hurry up and wait" business, and then all of a sudden things happen really quickly! Really looking forward to Captive!

Shelley Munro said...

There certainly is lots of hurry up and wait. I don't know about you but sometimes I have no idea what I'm doing because my head's in a spin. I'm saving your book until Christmas when I have plenty of time to enjoy!

Cathryn Brunet said...

Ahh, that excerpt was GOOD!

Christina Phillips said...

Helen, that's so exactly how it is, I think I've been so caught up in the promo for Forbidden I didn't realise how soon Captive is going to be released!! btw, I love your new profile pic!!

Christina Phillips said...

Shelley, I'm sooo glad I'm not the only one whose head's in a spin!! Honestly, I still don't know where September went. I just hope I was coherent!!!

Christina Phillips said...

practimom, I'm afraid to close my eyes in case I miss Christmas and it's February already!!!

Cathryn, thank you!! So glad you enjoyed it :-)

Phillipa Ashley said...

Whew, that is sizzling, Christina and so dramatic. Good luck with your proofs. P x

Christina Phillips said...
