I know, I know. Late. I'm terrible. And on top of being late, I also don't have teasers for my two main stories because I've been so caught up with finals and work, but I do have two new teasers for the pieces I am offering for the Nashville piece, so shall we go onward to the teasing?

Unlucky Me Ch. 1 Teaser # 2

Downtown Amulance by Aaron Goselin.

Untitled Peter/Bella One-Shot Teaser # 2


Bella wandered through the field as she did every day on her way home from school. She wasn't normally a fan of routine, but it seemed to be something she fell into easily. This particular routine was one she was okay with. Passing through the field of blossoming tulips always made even her worst day seem better, brighter, and today was a day that needed it.


All right, I hope these made up for things a little. Remember, you just need to donate $5 minimum to any of the accepted charities, send your receipt in as proof, and you can get these and several other authors' offerings in one big ebook. Let me know what you think! :D

It's that time again for the teasing. Things are a bit different this time, but you'll already have known that would be the case, if you read my previous post.

Because I am taking part in Fics for Nashville, I am giving you teasers from both pieces I will be offering as an incentive for you to donate to the cause. I have also been writing fairly often for The Art of Online Dating Ch. 17 (hopefully posting before the end of this month), so there will be a teaser for that as well. You guys get three different teasers today! One is a picture and two are written. For the written ones, please remember that these are unbeta'd pieces and that they are not guaranteed to make it to the final cut. Please excuse grammar and spelling mistakes.

The Art of Online Dating Ch. 17

Teaser #10


"Besides how could you ever maim my beautiful self? What would you do without me to drool over?" he chuckled before yanking me to lay on top of him.
"Oh, well aren't you Mr. Cockypants tonight." I pushed myself up using his chest, so that I was sitting in a straddle over him.
"Why yes, yes I am." He winked at me and placed his hands on my hips, his fingertips grazing the exposed skin between my shirt and the waistband of my pants.


Unlucky Me Ch. 1


“We're here.” he said, as the ambulance slid to a slow stop.

He grabbed hold of my gurney and pushed open the doors of the ambulance. I felt it lower to the ground and he rolled me into the hospital. There was lots of chatter and a slight draft. Hospitals were always so cold. No wonder they freaked people out; it was like setting you up for the morgue early.

Prompt 1: Tulips

Alright, there are your teasers. Since there is still time before these compilations go out to donors for Fics for Nash, I may post more teasers for the two pieces being offered. Hopefully, this convinces you to possibly donate to the cause. I hope that you will. Thank you to all my readers of any fic I ever have or will post. You all mean a lot to me and I hope that I have enough influence to get you to give back a little for the causes I support. Thank you again.

Until next time,

Devin Liotta

 Hey there,

I'm here to tell you that I'm back to help out another great cause. If you didn't already know, there's been a huge flood in Nashville, Tennessee. It has destroyed homes and taken lives. Some ladies in the fandom decided to do a sort of repeat of what MsKathy did to help Haiti. You donate $5 to any charity that will support Tennessee and you get an eBook of a collection of stories from a large variety of authors. Currently, I'm offering up two pieces. A chapter from my future story, Unlucky Me, is up for grabs, as well as a brand new Peter/Bella one-shot. If I don't finish the one-shot in time, the future chapter is being added for sure, so you will get something from me. Neither of these will be posted to my FFn profile until August or later, to allow those who donated to have it to themselves for a bit. All you have to do to get this story and so many more, is donate just $5 to one of the accepted charities and make sure to forward the receipt to one of the hosting ladies. You can find out even more by clicking the title link of this post, which will take you to the livejournal community. You can find out where to donate and who to send the receipt to, as well as find a list of contributing authors. To mix things up, the next teaser post will have teasers from The Art of Online Dating Ch. 17, Unlucky Me Ch. 1, and the yet-untitled Peter/Bella one-shot. This will make up for the fact that I don't have an I'll Want You Forever Ch. 11 teaser for you, hopefully, and the post will go live sometime later tonight.

Please, please, donate to this cause whether it be with writing, as I'm doing, or with money, and help Nashville rebuild what has been lost. If so many of us can band together to help save Haiti, surely we can do so for someone closer to home (if you live in the U.S. of course) or just somebody else in need.

Adorable kitty says pweeze. :)

Thank you.

 Summary: Edward and Bella have a history, but lose contact for 10 years. They end up working together and try to work things out. But Bella has an unresolved issue that compels her to stay as far as possible from Edward. Will they be able to work past it?

I'm back with a banner and a new rec for you. My lovely beta and prompt master, Lie2me.87, writes a little fic called Learning to Fall. It starts out with an "Omg that sucks" moment and goes on to give us a smart and determined Bella faced with seeing an unwanted Edward at work. She's a trauma surgeon, he's an ER doctor. We also have Alice and Jasper in this fic. Alice is quite the crazy one, but she's got her heart set on protecting her best friend, Bella. They also work together with Jasper, an oncologist, and Peter, who's super sweet. The story takes place in Santa Monica, CA, getting us out of the Forks area completely. There's no rain and clouds here. There's still something left to find out about this Bella, but we'll have to wait until the story progresses. It's cute and funny and Bella enjoys using sarcasm. It's only six chapters in, so I suggest you hop on this train now, while it's still gathering speed. :)

Let her know you found her story through the blog in a review :)

Well would you look at that, I'm back with more teasers! This time I have pictures for both because they could not be resisted. One is definitely not safe for work/school/children, so careful when scrolling down. I got the inspiration for the I'll Want You Forever chapter while at work and Chicklette convinced me to go with it. :P I'm still working hard at getting the Art of Online Dating chapter done as soon as possible because you all have been waiting so patiently for it. So here we go.

The Art of Online Dating Ch. 17

I'll Want You Forever Ch. 11

There you have it. What do you guys think of the IWYF teaser? Like? Dislike? Creeped out? Tell me what you think. I'd love to know :)


Devin Liotta Monday, May 3, 2010

Hey again. It's Teaser time. Unfortunately, I've decided not to tease anything from I'll Want You Forever this time because I've only been focusing on The Art of Online Dating. I hope you all aren't disappointed, so I'm going to post a picture AND word teaser for Chapter 17 tonight. Both are safe for work, so no worries here about getting stuck in a sticky situation, unless you know, you keep the whole Twific thing a secret lol. Disclaimer: Please remember that all written teasers are not guaranteed to appear in the chapter and are unbeta'd, so please excuse any errors. Thanks. And here we go...again:

The Art of Online Dating Chapter 17

Teaser # 8
I had lived all my life in Washington and had never been to the Seattle Space Needle. I had seen pictures in brochures and online, even looked at it as I drove by, but I had never seen it up close or look so beautiful. With lights bright against the dark, night sky, it looked breathtaking. I was glad that Edward had chosen this for our dinner portion of the date.

"I wish I had my camera," I whispered to Edward.
"Lucky I brought mine then." 

I looked  over at him and he smiled, handing me his tiny blue Nikon digital camera from his pocket.

"Snap away, beautiful,"  he said before he kissed my forehead and stepped back to give me space.

Teaser # 9

Paul Wolfgang

Well that's it for teasers. I'm working on the chapter a little each day during lunch breaks and night times. Till next time, I <3 you all!

P.s. I also got a fandom Facebook if you want to add me on there :)
