Chapter 28 Graupner POV For Fandoms4Floods!

I thought I'd give a little teaser for Graupner's POV from Chapter 28. :)

“Let’s get going. Have you seen Jackson?”

“He walked off that way about fifteen minutes ago,” I said, pointing to the backstage area.

“Go get him while I settle the tab.”

I chugged down the rest of my beer and set it on the bar top. As I walked toward the backstage area, I stopped a couple of times to take pictures with some of the fans. What should’ve been a thirty second walk ended up being ten minutes.

I walked toward the small room the venue considered a dressing room and kept an ear out in case Jackson was in one of the other rooms or in the bathroom throwing up. As I neared the dressing room door, I could blatantly hear heavy breathing and moaning.

Fucker came back here to have drunken phone sex with Iris.

I readied myself to point and laugh at him since it wouldn’t have been the first time I caught him jerking off while Iris was on the phone with him. I opened the door and stopped dead in my tracks.

Donations for the compilation are being accepted until March 30th. You can go HERE to find out how to donate and receive yours.

Chapter 28 Follow Up

You guys absolutely amaze me. The response to this chapter has been overwhelming. I didn't think you all would have such strong reactions to it, but I'm thankful that you were so emotional over it. Thank you. Really.

First, while writing the end of the chapter, I listened to Katharine McPhee's "Say Goodbye." It's an absolutely beautiful yet heartbreaking song. To me, it was perfect for the end scene. If you like, reread it while listening to this song. J says it makes it even more emotional.

Jackson cheating has been in the cards since Chapter One. It was always a part of the plotline. I wasn't exactly sure how I was going to go about it, but then I saw his change in demeanor during the 100 City Tour and knew that I had to use it. For the record, I'm not the only person who noticed the change in his stage performance during that leg of the tour. People were commenting left and right that he seemed to have changed a bit, so I knew it would be realistic if I used that a sign in this chapter.

For those that may have noticed, the Cambridge show took place on a Sunday. I moved this back to Saturday so that all of the drama could go down on a Sunday. It goes with the timeline for the next chapter.

I know I've tweeted and blogged about this already, but I'm gonna keep doing it until the month ends. I donated 25 scenes from the first 25 chapters of C, CD in Jackson POV to the @FansAgainstDV charity compilation. It ended up at 19,000 words, includes two new lemons, and gives you little insights into how Jackson went about things with Suzy, Ashley, and Iris. A surprise convo with Ryann is in there, as well. In addition to the JPOV submission, I also wrote and submitted an original o/s centered around domestic violence. Go HERE to get info and instructions on how you can donate and receive the compilation.

There will be a Graupner POV from this chapter for the @Fandoms4Floods charity compilation. It will center around Jackson's cheating. You can go HERE to find out more about when you can start donating, when to expect your compilation, and the other authors donating written work. Please remember that this charity will benefit those affected by the horrific floods in Australia. *hearts*

From the lighter side of the chappy, I'll be donating a phone sex outtake to the @fandomgivesback charity compilation that benefits autism awareness. Please go HERE to find out how you can donate, when the compilation will be released, and a list of the authors participating.

I have about a week before the Graupner POV is due so I'll be working on that first and then starting Chapter 29. Since the chappy is pretty much outlined in my head, I don't believe it'll take too long to write or post. I'll try to aim for two weeks from now, but gimme three, just in case. :P

Again, thank you so much for all of the feedback on Chapter 28. The fact that some of you raged and/or cried really means a lot to me. Kitty, I'm sorry about your chicken sandwich. Soggy is as soggy does. ;)

Con Amor Siempre,

Chapter 28 Teaser!

Can you believe it? I said I'd try and give you this chapter within two weeks, and I actually did it. World peace is possible! ;)

“What’s wrong?”

“I’m just really tired.”

“Oh. Well, I guess I can't tell you what I need to tell to you, then.”

“No. Tell me. What’s up?”

“Um, you’re not driving right now, are you?”


“OK. Well, um... I don’t even know how to say this,” I said, my voice shaky.

“Iris, what is it?” he asked, slight panic in his voice.

“I’m... I’m pregnant.”


More silence.


“You’re pregnant?” he whispered. “Are you sure?”

“I just got back from the doctor. Blood work came out positive.”

“Are you feeling OK?”

“Yeah. No morning sickness or anything yet.”


“What are you thinking?” I asked.

“I don’t know.”

“I have more news.”



“You ready?”

“Probably not.”

Don't forget that Jackson POV for the first 25 chapters of C, CD is available through the @FansAgainstDV charity fundraiser. You get 25 scenes from the first 25 chapters in his POV. There are also two new lemons in there. *waggles eyebrows* Go HERE to get more info on how you can donate and get your compilation.

Extra Goodies with the musical chapter title go up tomorrow. The chappy'll post Saturday morning.
