Why I love writing dancing scenes

If you've read LEGENDARY or CLAIMING EXCALIBUR you know I have several dance scenes throughout both books. I can't help it. Really I can't! So many of the tv shows or movies or even other books I love have romantic or fun dance scenes that never fail to inspire me. It's just so romantic and pretty and intimate and just........sigh.
descriptionI myself am not a good dancer, think cliche white girl and you've got me, but when I was in Vienna in October I did learn how to Waltz! Very exciting :) I remember in High school gum class we did a week on dancing and learned a few 16th century dances, but heck if I remember the steps. LOL


description

The dancing in Sailor Moon and Labyrinth I think have had the most resounding impression with me. Mostly because Tuxedo Mask/Darien/Mamoru and Jareth represent two of my favorite types of heroes.
description
description
And who wouldn't want to dance with Prince Eric. Honestly I think he's one of my fav Disney princes!

description
I personally can't really think of 2 more iconic animated dance scenes for me  outside of Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast. It also helps that Prince Philip and Prince Adam (yes, that is the beast's name!) are my other top 3 Princes along with Eric from above!!!! Can I meet someone once upon a dream and dance through the forest? SIGH
descriptiondescription

description Disney is good at making these scenes intimate that's for sure! Then again so are Channign Tatum--YUMMY--and Antonio Banderas. I mean both guys could easily set off all the fire alarms in the in a five block radius with how they dance! SEXY

description


descriptiondescription

When I think of dance scenes I always think of Footloose and Dirty Dancing. My bestie and I used to watch these movies all the time when we were kids! I'm obsessed, really I am.
As I imagine scenes and plots in my head, I can always see some of my favorite characters dancing together either romantically or possibly in some kind of battle like scenario. (Though they normally turn into straight up fight scenes)
Even my two WIP's have dance scenes already written!
Sailor Moon, Labyrinth, Disney movies, Dirty Dancing, Step Up, Footloose, and so damn many more.............
I blame the dance scenes on them...seriously...I do

Since I've been so focused on Claiming Excalibur and it's pre-orders and promoting it, I though a flash back teaser, or two, for LEGENDARY would be in order!


“Who are you?” Aliana and Galahad demanded at the same time.
The lady cackled. “My dear, you did not think that you would simply walk in and awaken him, did you?” She stepped closer. “You have done well with the first two tests, but there is one more you must pass to prove yourself worthy of claiming the title of the Destined One.” Her aged smoky, sultry voice scraped over Aliana’s skin.
“What do you mean test? Are you responsible for that disaster zone back there?” Aliana could almost feel the old woman’s cold smile.
 “That disaster zone as you call it was to test your wit and ability to think under dire circumstances. There are still tasks ahead that require both. Your first test was to find the courage to face the unknown and free the lord knight and your guardian. King Arthur’s champion cannot lack the traits he had in abundance.”

Aliana wanted to roll her eyes, but she wouldn’t put it past this lady to do something terrible to her for it.
Aliana followed the woman down the corridor, taking in every detail she could. The cave walls had been covered with elegant, beautiful drawings. Standing side-to-side, eight valiant knights formed a line facing a small army of thirty or more black-armored knights. “What are these drawings?” Aliana asked, fascinated by the ancient art.
“You have searched a long time to know the truth of Camelot and its king, but the truth may not be what you wish it to be,” the woman answered cryptically.
“No disrespect,” Aliana said, glancing back at the woman, “but I have just found out that Dragons, Elves, Nymphs, and Goblins are real. I had to save a legendary knight, escape those crazy Sidhe, and I’ve been told I have to awaken one of the most famous men in history. I’ve kinda accepted that everything I thought I knew about Camelot and King Arthur is nothing close to the truth.”

 “You have spirit, girl. That is good. You will need every ounce of it and all the courage you can muster to do what is needed of you.” The woman looked past Aliana to the drawing on the walls. “This shows the Fae’s account of Arthur and his men during their last battle with the evil Mordrid.” The woman held out her aged hand. Colored sparks of magic burned under her skin before they jumped to life, circling tightly in her palm. The old woman blew a gentle breath. Aliana watched, transfixed as the magic sailed from her fingers to the drawings, giving them life before her eyes.


BOOK BLURB:
Aliana Fagan spent her childhood traveling the world, dreaming of legendary heroes and mythical lands. But after the sudden death of her parents, she hides behind the safety of her camera and her art until a vivid recurring dream compels her to dig into her father's research about Avalon and Camelot. When she is hurled into a magical realm by forces she thought were only the stuff of fairy tales, she finds herself thrown into an adventure she could never have imagined. Nearly everything she thought she knew about Arthurian legend was wrong. The independent eighteen-year-old is shocked to find that the people of Avalon think that she is the Destined One, the only person who can summon King Arthur back to life from his hidden chamber. Most surprising of all is that it's up to her to lead the Knights of the Round Table on an epic quest-an adventure that will transport them across the seven magic realms to reclaim all that has been lost so they can defeat the evil Mordrid for good. But first, she must bring the ancient warriors into her world and reunite them with their lost brothers. Chaperoning the legendary knights-with-a-chivalry-complex as they navigate the modern world is a constant challenge, and she certainly never thought she'd be caught between her intense feelings for the noble Sir Galahad and her growing friendship with the King. To fulfill the prophecy, Aliana will have to discover the meaning of friendship, bravery, loyalty, true love, and forgiveness. But can she do it all in time to save the realms from Mordrid's impending Armageddon?

Claiming Excalibur week part 1

Hiya! With the release of Claiming Excalibur drawing so close you've been seeing a lot of promo stuff for the book, I am trying to keep it as varied as I can, at least with my sites, so that you won't get bored with all the same things over and over again. Thus why I've got a very special EXTENDED scene clip that you won't find anywhere else!
I've said from the start that I hated the love triangle between Guinevere and Lancelot because it just never felt right to me and I always believed the Guinevere belonged with Lancelot. So I changed the legend in LEGENDARY and gave the knight and beautiful woman the happily-for-now I always wanted them to have...but you knew it couldn't last, and as we learned in book 1 of the saga, Lancelot lost the love of his life, but there's so much mystery surrounding that loss that ties in directly to why he abandoned Arthur in Avalon and brought down the wrath of the Fae Queen Titania on his immortal head.
It's been a point for Aliana to find out this secret, why the most honorable of Arthur's knights would abandon him after swearing a magic oath to protect him. And guess what, she finally gets her answer!
Here is the extended scene:


A soft noise drifting up from downstairs caught her attention. It sounded like someone was playing her mother’s piano. Curious about whom it could be, she turned and headed down the stairs. 
She stopped just outside her mother’s old music room and listened to the notes as they floated through the small space where the door was cracked open. Whoever was playing was very gifted. The more she listened to the beautiful song, the more she heard the underlying sadness to it. The music flowed around her, telling a story of heartbreaking love and aching loneliness. Tears pricked at her eyes. Aliana had to know who was so hurt, so she peeked through the opening. Her eyes landed on the profile of a raven-haired man with a lean build. He swayed as he played with his face turned away from her. He slowly turned forward. His eyes were closed, his mouth slightly tilted down, his face etched with sorrow and solitude. A single tear slid down his cheek as he started the song again. How could Lancelot be in so much pain without everyone here knowing?
His head snapped up, his pale green eyes burning with uncontrolled anger, rooting Aliana where she stood. “What the bloody hell do you think you’re doing?” He shoved the piano bench back as he stood. 
“I…” Aliana stammered as he advanced on her. His body moved with the lethal grace of a jungle cat. He crossed the room in a flash, yanking the door open and roughly grabbing Aliana’s arm. He viciously yanked her into the room, nearly pulling her off her feet completely. 
“Why are you spying on me?” he demanded, still gripping her arm, pulling her so close she could practically feel the rage rolling off him. 
“I wasn’t… I was… I heard music,” Aliana tried to explain, but her words tied themselves on her tongue. 
“Answer me Destined One! What the bloody hell do you think gives you license to spy on me?” 
“I wasn’t spying on you!” she finally got out. “I was going up to bed and I heard the music. I didn’t know who would be in my mother’s music room so I checked it out.” She gulped down the dry lump in her throat. Lancelot had yet to relent on his crushing grip. Every word she said seemed to only fuel his ire. “I was surprised to see you. I didn’t mean to intrude!” 
He roughly pushed her back, releasing her arm and turning away from her. Stumbling to catch her balance, Aliana watched his shoulders hunch forward, his hands scrubbing roughly over his face. 
“Did you write that song for Guinevere?” Aliana chanced asking him. This could be the key to knowing why he’d truly left Arthur’s side after Titania had created the prophecy. She’d never believed the reason he’d given—that he merely went looking for Merlin.
He wheeled around, pinning her with his angry gaze. “Do you think just because Arthur and Galahad defend you, you have the right to pry into everyone’s private life?” 
“No, but…”
Lancelot cut her off with a slashing motion of his hand. “You need to go upstairs and keep your nose out of others’ private affairs. Guinevere is none of your concern!” His face flushed with fury.  
Aliana’s temper flared. “Do not talk to me like a child!” she whispered angrily, not wanting to yell and wake the whole house. “I’m as much a part of this as you are. It’s been obvious since we first met that something has closed you off to everyone around you. All you do is lash out at us.” 
Lancelot stood with his body ramrod stiff, his balled fists shaking. Aliana felt like she should be buried in a thirty foot grave by now. Despite his anger, she didn’t back down. She wanted answers and thought that in this state, she might be able to force him to admit why he’d abandoned Arthur and Galahad. There had to be a better reason than that he’d wanted to look for Merlin. There had to be! “Why did you really leave Arthur’s side in Avalon?”
Lancelot’s face turned a deeper red and his pale eyes raged with so many emotions: anger, betrayal, confusion, and endless heartbreak. 
“Get out of here right now, Aliana,” he ordered in a low, shaky voice. 
With her trembling hands on her hips, she stood her ground, her body between him and the door. “No. I’m not leaving ’til you answer my question!” 
“If you won’t leave, I will. Step aside.” 
She refused to move. “Answer my question. Why did you really leave Avalon and Arthur?” 
“Step aside or I’ll make you.” His face was directly in front of hers. 
“You won’t hurt me. It goes against everything the Knights of the Round Table stand for.” Aliana wasn’t sure how it was possible, but his face got even redder. She could almost see steam blowing out of his ears.  
“Clearly I was willing to go against the code before. I could easily do it again. Now, move!” 
“Why did you leave Arthur and Galahad? Was it really because you wanted to make sure Morgana hadn’t killed Merlin after he left or was it because you wanted to try to find Guinevere? Did you really think she’d still be out there alive? ” 
Lancelot snapped. He grabbed her shoulders, roughly shoving her against the wall and knocking the breath from her lungs.  
“What do you want me to say?” He growled like a dangerous, wounded animal. 

Okay........so what do you think? Did I leave you hanging or have you figured it all out? I love this part of CLAIMING EXCALIBUR, which is why I wanted to share it here. There is so much going on in the lives of every member of the Round Table and getting the chance to tell you all more about their individual stories is amazing! And wait until book 3 of the saga is released. You really get to know the others stories then.
Now, like every post, I'd be remiss if I didn't add in all the book information so here it is:
 Aliana Fagan has done what many thought impossible: she’s awakened King Arthur from his fifteen-hundred-year sleep, reunited the Knights of the Round Table, and even beaten Mordrid and Morgana LeFay in battle.
But the Destined One’s quest has only begun.
Before the knights can "unearth and reclaim their lost relics" they must survive the trip to Charleston, South Carolina and meet the newest member of the Round Table. If King Arthur’s men thought Aliana and Lacy were tenacious, they'll be even more surprised by Dawn, the third member of the fem-trio. 
Deadly secrets, unexpected allies, and a traitor lurking in the shadows await Aliana and the new Round Table as they continue their search for Excalibur. Their only clue is a beyond confusing poem from a mysterious book that speaks of a terrifying creature guarding the legendary sword. Trying to build a somewhat normal relationship with Sir Galahad adds a whole new level of complexity to Aliana’s task, especially when several among them suspect the White Knight may not be wholly himself. Her friendship with King Arthur grows closer, and when circumstances become intense, he may finally get the chance with Aliana that he’s been pining for.
Mysteries, legendary quests, and haunting memories will either unite the members of the New Round Table or fracture their bonds. Aliana and her crew only have seven months before the planets align and Mordrid can seize the power he needs to conquer the seven realms. Can the Destined One keep her new family together and lead Arthur to his destiny of saving the realms? Or will a centuries-old plot for revenge finally spell the king’s end?
Head on over to Goodreads to add it to your TBR list or pre-order it on Amazon  Barnes & Noble iBooks which ever e-reader or print service you prefer :)

FUN AND THOUGHTS

Today's post is going to be a rant and a rave. I know I'm cra-cra, but lets go with it for now. Let's start with the rave, because I always like my dessert before my veggies :)  --haha get the Pastry chef joke?-- **ducks Raspberry Lemon Roulade thrown at her head**

Okay seriously. I love telling people that I am a pastry chef at a hotel in DC and a published author because people's faces are hilarious! I recently went with my dad to Vienna on a business trip of his, met tons of people because it was a huge conference that people bring their families too--thus my going! It was tons of fun, and during the conference I spent my days with the other family members, so naturally we all got chatting. Here are some of the A-maz-ING pics
     

 We gotta have a picture of this one playing the accordion!


But I digress-SQUIRREL-though it does tie into my rave here. Anyways, I was telling people about my book and that the second book in the Legendary Saga was coming out in a few weeks. I just found out yesterday that CLAIMING EXCALIBUR is now available for pre-order of Amazon and B&N!!!!!!!!!! Totally psyched. Print copies will run Dec 30th, e-copies will go live Dec 16th!!
It's a tiny thing, I know, but it didn't get to happen with LEGENDARY so the fact it happened this time is so cool! 
Also we just revealed the cover for CLAIMING EXCALIBUR--which my girls at Omnific did FANTASTICALY with-- and it's up on Goodreads for people to start adding it to their TBR lists--and since I love giveaways I am also putting up 2 signed print copies of LEGENDARY through  Goodreads so be sure to enter that :)
What's also cool is this Buzzfeed list a blogger friend of mine told me about! And guess what LEGENDARY is on it! Right with C.C. Hunter and Meg Cabot--two of my favorite authors :)
So that's three really amazing things for me to rave about and I can't tell you how those good things have gotten me through the stupidity of real life.

Which brings me to my rant..................
*SIGH*
I love what I do, cooking, baking, wedding and specialty cakes, playing around with different foods and flavor profiles. I have to other wise I wouldn't have been in the Food industry for 15 years!
In those years I've been crazy privileged to rub shoulders and or work for 5 star chefs, 3 Michelin star chefs, The largest fortune whatever company (Disney) and the only chef owner in the world to be 5 star 5 diamond ranked for over 26 years consecutively! That's almost as long as I've been alive! Yes, I started way to young in my business :)
Now it hasn't been all edible glitter, cupcakes and guilt free ice cream; believe me I've met enough jack-asses, egotistical-pig-headed-napoleon-complex-I think I know what I'm doing but really I just have my thumb up my butt--jerks!
WAHOOOOOO.......that took some breath.
To say I've developed a titanium skin would be an understatement, so I can take the trash talk, the disses, the back stabbing, the degrading comments and mean looks like a MMA Champ. But the thing that never fails to get under my skin is hypocrisy and ignorance.
I am very sure I'm not alone in my destestment of these two things, but sadly, many people in "position of power" fall dead center into this target's bullseye.
It can be overwhelming at times and even after a decade and half of abuse I still have trouble coping on a rare occasion. Finding new ways to cope, I realize now, was probably a big factor for me to start writing again. It was a fresh challenge, let's me show off my imagination and most of all gives me an escape from the stupid and crazy. Not that the publishing industry doesn't have that too...we all know it does...
If you've read LEGENDARY or have been one of the people to recieve ARC's of CLAIMING EXCALIBUR you'll have noticed I have some pretty strange monsters and I like to skewer/chop off head and body parts/impale creatures with magic vines..........can you say anger management? 
I can :D
This always reminds me of one of my favorite author quotes, pictured below for your convince

Yeah, that's me. You should see what I do in book 3 **laughs evilly** 

descriptiondescription


And that ends my rant. If you've got a rant you want to share or thoughts--random or related-- please feel free to do so in the comments section :)
I love being a writer
