Insipid, by Christine BraeJust three days until release day, and Still seeking allies is proud to bring you a sneak peek into the living heart of the book. The clever idea here is that there's a chain of teaser excerpts, of which this is the fifth, so if you want to start at the very beginning (a very good place to start), check the schedule below, start with the excerpt from All Romance Reviews and then follow the yellow brick links to get the full effect!
Are you ready for some excerpt?!
Insipid - Teaser Excerpt Five
Beyond my comfort zone and into the ocean I go. Deeper and deeper until the tide pushes me forward and my feet can no longer anchor themselves on the sand.
I close my eyes and pray. I pray for forgiveness, but most of all I pray for those who will be left behind.
As the tide carries me further away, I delight in the numbness that the cold brings to my skin. The muffled sound of the water in my ear. The overwhelming, heartfelt feeling of closure.
Floating, floating, floating away filled with so much peace.
Follow along the excerpt chain by checking out the next teaser on Beauty Brains and Books and then by using the following schedule for the rest of the day:
9am – All Romance Reviews
10am – Flirty and Dirty Book Blog
11am – Devoured Words
12pm – The Book Avenue
1pm – Still Seeking Allies

SynopsisBanal. Lifeless and Colorless. These are the words that describe my life. I’ve made the right choices, done all the right things. I’m strong, intelligent and highly successful.
I’ve lived scrupulously, loved greatly, and shared my blessings equitably.
But life hasn’t been fair with me.
Now I’m drowning in the middle of the ocean, desperately searching for the shore, surrendering to the fact that I will never be happy.
Then he came along.
Life is unpredictable. You can play it safe and resist change for fear of the unknown. Or you can close your eyes and take the leap with the knowledge that your life will change forever.
Which one will I choose?
My name is Jade Richmond and this is my story.
