Duplicity Excerpt – Meet Lilith and Trey

July 15, 2013

We’re getting close to a release for Duplicity! I’m hoping the novella will be available on Amazon for $1.99 by Wednesday or Thursday, but I’ll keep you guys up to date.

Until then, here’s a short excerpt of Lilith and Trey.

“It’s not so funny,” Trey groused, crossing his arms.

“Oh God.” It was hard to breathe through paroxysms of laughter. “Yes it is. It really is.” She sat up on the bed, wiping tears from under her eyes. “Your name is Oswald Fitz Bauer the Third?”

He made a face at her, but there was amusement in his eyes. “You were named after a demon. You know that, right?”

Lilith giggled. “Okay, okay.” She took deep breaths, trying to calm down. “Where do you get Trey from Oswald?”

“I don’t. Trey is from the third.”

She had to press her lips together to keep from laughing again. “Well, given the choice between Oswald, Fitz, and Trey, I guess that’s an obvious decision.” She lay back down, still tittering every now and again.

“Well, what’s your full name?”

“Lilith Medusa Damon,” she lied without blinking an eyelash.

He pushed up onto one arm so he was leaning over her. “Seriously?”

She pursed her lips. “What? My parents were playing up the whole last name thing.”

“They could have been more subtle. They could have named you Demon Demon Damon.”

“That’s my brother’s name.”

He looked at her for a full two seconds before he laughed, ducking so his forehead rested on her shoulder.

This is nice, she thought as she ran her fingers through his hair. Weird, but nice. It struck her as strange on multiple levels. First, and probably foremost, was how much fun she had when she was with him. In most cases, her clients had their fun and returned to their real lives. She’d never had casual conversation and teasing after sex. She was lying nude in his bed, but they weren’t doing anything sexual. She was still on the clock, but as he never failed to point out, he had to recoup sometime. As a result, in between trysts, there was conversation and this somewhat surreal affinity between them.

I’m getting very excited.

For any of you who are going to be at Comic Con, I’ll be there, too! I’ll have Duplicity bookmarks to give away, so if you want one, find me. I’m sure I’ll be all over twitter with my babbling. Hah! Can’t wait.
