One More Month

That’s right, Tendrils of Passion releases on November 12!

Book two in the series, Murmurs of Evil, can be enjoyed without having read book one, but Tendrils of Passion is best read as a companion to the second book.

Here’s an excerpt from Tendrils of Passion:

Mrs. Melling tied Magdalene’s petticoat around her abnormally small waist. Once dressed and Magdalene’s hair arranged, she exclaimed, “You’re the pink of perfection!”
Looking in the mirror, Magdalene agreed that she looked like a lady off the pages of McCall’s Magazine, but she wasn’t happy.
“Smile, Magdalene. Let your radiance shine and he will not only want you, he will need you.”
A shiver worked its way from Magdalene’s head to toes as she recalled the demonic words Alexander had spoken as he’d seduced her all those months ago.
There is no want, only need.
Her hand went to her heart in an impulsive movement and she bit her lip to keep from crying out as the voice sounded larger than life in her head.
“You stay here until Leroy comes for you. I want you to have a grand entrance.”
With the click of the door, Magdalene knew she wasn’t alone. The tentacles were back, spiraling around her limbs and gripping her torso tighter than the corset. Unable to sit comfortably, she paced the room and fought the urge to give in.
Minutes later, she heard the Great Arrow start up. She rushed to the open window and watched Douglas pull away, one of her large crates in the backseat. If he had looked up, she would have cried to him to deliver her from the evil threatening to tear down her resolve against Mrs. Melling’s plans.
The minutes ticked by as Magdalene rubbed the wooden rosary bracelet she’d pulled out from her drawer holding her engagement ring. Finally, the rumble of a motor coming up the lane sounded through the cloudy afternoon. Hiding behind her curtain, she watched Claudio and Douglas exit the automobile, laughing. Resentment that they could be joyous while she battled demons took root. While she knew it illogical—and against her nature to hold grudges against either of the men—she couldn’t stop the bitterness from clouding her judgement and slinking behind the curtain when they looked toward her window.

In closing, here’s a sampling of what reviewers have said about the first two books in The Possession Chronicles. For more  information on the books–including ordering information–check out the website page dedicated to it.

Blog Hopping

I’ve been all over different websites lately and posting/sharing the links on my social media pages, but in case you’ve missed them, here’s the latest.

 

Book Review:

This post is a review of my historical novel, Fortitude, by MeLeesa Swann, a newcomer in the world of Middle Grade fantasy.

This one is about seeking inspiration in the world around you, on MeLeesa’s site, including examples I find of Fortitude and Corroded in the world around me.

Then newest is a feature on some of my favorite books featuring Autism Spectrum Disorders on Stephanie Lawton’s blog. (Enjoy contemporary upper YA and New Adult novels, she’s your lady!)

 

Q&A Posts:

Steven Moore hosted me last weekend with some great questions. Check out his website while you’re there. He’s a fantastic artist (“Mr. Illustrator” from The Inscribables, who drew my “Word Rocker” avatar.) If you love fantasy books, games, etc. be sure to browse his offerings.

And I had another stop with MeLeesa Swann (she’s been great to me) to answer her burning questions.
