Tigris Eden's BURNED IN SHADOWS (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Please give a warm welcome to Tigris Eden!

A big thank you to Reading Between The Wines for having me on the blog today.  Here is an excerpt from Burned In Shadows.

“You’re ready for this,” she said to herself in the mirror. She was still her; still Jesminda Zealand, not too tall, not too short, but average. This was the last time she’d see herself for a while. Her real self. She could hold her new form for however long was needed. If she ever needed to disappear forever, she had the perfect cover. Tonight would make or break this operation. She’d been sparring with everyone back at base including Dietrich. If his ass said she was ready, she was. The bathroom she stood in was nasty as hell. The smell of piss and mold was making her eyes water. She took more of the raunchy smell into her lungs and carefully let her body do the work.

When she opened her eyes, she saw Zea. Tall, athletically built with spiky black hair spun with gold strands. Green eyes stared back her and pointy ears made her look elven as Royce liked to joke. She opened her mouth to make sure her canines were small and dainty. Inspected her silver tipped nails that would lengthen into deadly claws. Every detail of this façade had to be exact each and every time she took this form. But for the next couple of weeks this was the new her.
The volume outside the restroom was thunderous. She could hear the announcer over the screams and cheering. This plan had to work, this was her fifth fight. She’d been to this hole in the wall club every day for the last six days. The first time she’d come, she’d mapped the logistics of the operation. The Red Hand used the underground cage matches as a way to recruit. The second night she fought, then every night after that. Dravaggio hadn’t liked the change in plan. He’d wanted her to fight once and wait to be approached. She smiled at herself when she heard Royce’s voice in her head, checking in. The first rule of cage club is: You do not talk about cage club. The second rule of cage club is: You do not talk about cage club. The third rule of cage club is: don’t get the shit beat out of you but beat the fuck out of your opponent. You got this. She smiled at herself in the mirror and sent Royce a mental smirk.

There is really not much to say... I love to write, read, and listen to music. My attempt at a music career sadly ended at the Apollo one warm night in May. LOL (Side note: I was not booed just outdone by two munchkins rapping to Biggy Smalls, they were good.Military brat extraordinaire; have traveled to a lot of interesting places.  This February I will be going over to the other side of the pond where I will spend two weeks in Europe.  I will be in Cambridge, London, Paris, Versailles, Bruges, and hopefully Cardiff.The very first time I put pen to paper in story fashion (for fun), was in 6th grade.  The story was called, The Case of The Missing Pepperoni. It was a cute mystery where all the ingredients and shop appliances came to life when the store owner closed up for the evening.  See, pretty boring stuff. I always say I'm not the interesting one, but the people around me.
