Waiting On Wednesday: Nocte

Courtney Goes Dark!!







This Week I'm Waiting on... 

Nocte by Courtney Cole


What they say: SAVE ME AND I'LL SAVE YOU...

My name is Calla Price. I’m eighteen years old, and I’m one half of a whole.  
My other half-- my twin brother, my Finn-- is crazy. 

I love him. More than life, more than anything. And even though I’m terrified he’ll suck me down with him, no one can save him but me.

I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day. So I reach out for a lifeline.  

Dare DuBray. 

He’s my savior and my anti-Christ. His arms are where I feel safe, where I’m afraid, where I belong, where I’m lost. He will heal me, break me, love me and hate me.  

He has the power to destroy me. 

Maybe that’s ok. Because I can’t seem to save Finn and love Dare without everyone getting hurt.  

Why? Because of a secret.  

A secret I’m so busy trying to figure out, that I never see it coming. 

You won’t either.  



  • Expected publication: Nov 3rd 2014 by Lakehouse Press.







Why I'm Waiting on Nocte


  1. Holy Hell it sounds dramatic!
  2. Love the blurb!
  3. Read note Courtney posted online...

"Dear Reader, 

I once considered not writing this story. It was too dark, too twisted, too much, too, too, too.  
Obviously, I changed my mind. But I re-wrote in four different ways first, trying to make it different, more easily palatable, softer.  

It didn’t work. 

So I went back to my original idea, the idea that I loved. The idea that I dreamed about and lived and breathed until it was done the way I wanted it, the way it has to be.  

I know you’re capable of reading it. I know you’re capable of putting yourselves back together again when it’s all over. I have faith in you. 

Is this story dark? 
Yes. 

It is twisted?  
At times. 

Will it slap you in the face? 
Absolutely. 

Will it have you flipping the pages, trying to figure it out, trying to get to the climax, trying to breathe? 
God, I hope so.  

I wrote this story the way it needed to be written. I couldn’t sugarcoat it. I couldn’t water it down. It is this way because the story demands it.  

I’m not sorry."
