Noémie’s Journey by Victoria Saccenti

banner

is proud to announce the release of her newest novel
Noémie’s Journey

 
Noémie's JourneyLove is waiting around the next curve…but trouble is never far behind.

Desperate to shake memories that stalk him like feral beasts, Richard Winters points his motorcycle toward the highway and twists the throttle—destination anywhere but New York. By the time he puts his kickstand down, he’s in Summitville, North Carolina, where, with a few annoying exceptions, one being an outlaw MC, he’s left alone.

Except there’s one woman who catches his notice and resurrects the protective instinct that cost him everything once before. A woman with stunning green eyes that haunt his dreams, and facing prejudice that makes him want to rise to her defense. But that would mean doing the last thing he wants to do—lower his guard.

Noémie Bellerose has heard times are changing, but in 1968 North Carolina, she and her younger brother are second-class citizens. The new bartender in town is temptation on two wheels, but in what world could the two of them connect? Not this one.

Despite their best intentions to avoid trouble, trouble finds them both—and so does an attraction that won’t be denied. But can love bloom where it is planted, or will they be forced to resort to desperate measures…before hate cuts them down?

Excerpt:

PROLOGUE
Mount Vernon, New York. April 1968

         Dickey entered his apartment, and before he could flip the light switch, the memories—feral beasts lying in wait—pounced from every direction.
         
Damn it. Stop. Stop. He stabbed his fingers into his face, but the self-inflicted pain had no effect on the barrage of angry whispers circling him. Taunting him, they grew louder…intensified to a roar of screams and jeers.
         He’d done everything to break the pattern, had changed his routine, rearranged the sequence and time of his actions and nothing worked. As soon as he was alone, the scene and participants came to life, clawing at him whether he played music, listened to the radio, or watched TV. No distraction, no entertainment on earth could end the torment or silence the voices. No. They pulled him, yanked him back to the moment…the god-awful moment.
         
No more.
         It was late, close to midnight, and still he reached for the phone—a pathetic jerk, a slave of the past. He loathed the lack of control, the outright weakness the call would reveal.
         “Hey, Skip. Sorry to wake you.”
         “Hmmm…yeah. Dickey?”
         “Got a moment, pal?”
         “Shoot. I’m awake now.”
         “You once offered to buy my share of the business. Are you still interested in going solo?”
         “It was a passing interest. But…why bring it up now?”
         “Because I’m getting out of Dodge. I refuse to spend another hour in this state. I’m done. Finito.”
         “Hold on, man. Vivian again? It’s been years.”
         “I can’t shake it. I see her…them… No more.”
         “What about that sweet young thing? She likes you.”
         “And she was getting too clingy. I don’t do girlfriends. Mind’s made up.”
         “Wait, Dickey—”
         “Nah, I’m packing. I’ll head west or maybe south. Not sure. When I stop, wherever I stop, I’ll call. Hopefully, a drastic change will do the trick. And Skip, when you see that girl, please tell her I wish her the best.”
         He dropped the phone on the cradle and swept through his place, tossing a few rolled items into the smallest duffel he owned. He didn’t need much. He’d tear into the road, travel light and long with a single purpose in mind: leave good old Dickey behind and forgotten. Hello world, meet Richard Winters.
         In a few strides, he closed the door to his last home in New York, mounted his bike, and, with a deep rumble, sped into the night.
         Ill or fair, he’d meet the wind head-on.

Interview with Victoria Saccenti:
by Karina Kantas

-What made you want to be a writer?

My writing journey began decades ago. I plunged into the adventure-filled pages of Emilio Salgari’s Tigers of Malaysia and my imagination awakened. I started writing juvenile fantasies, kept a diary, progressed to short stories, then finally took on the big project, full-length novels.

 
-How important is it to read books when you want to be an author?

Read, read, and read some more. That is the main advice given by every major author. As other works expand the knowledge and style base. We’re exposed to new and different worlds when we read.

 
-Which character do you identify with most in your novel?

This may sound crazy, but I don’t identify with one specific character. I love and identify with all of them. When they speak to me, I listen.

 
-Is there a message you’d like to send through your book?

I don’t like to tell anyone how or what to think. I only present events, choices, and possibilities. The characters come up to the proverbial crossroad and learn from their mistakes. In the exchange I can only hope the readers take something of value.

 
-Tell us how the atmosphere needs to be for you to be able to write. Example, music on or quiet etc.

I hide out in my silent cave. LOL I can’t write with music. If I do, my mind wanders away, gets lost in the notes and I lose the connection to the character(s).

 
-What is one goody you must have at your desk when you’re writing?

My cave is an organized chaos. I have all sorts of necessary goodies. Affectionate notes from my dear hubby, photographs of dear friends, my special notebook, things like that.

 
-What is the worst thing you’ve had to overcome before publishing your novel? IF it’s too personal just make a generalized statement if you can.

The biggest challenge was to gather the courage to put your work “out there” exposing your soul to the public.

 
-When you need some extra encouragement who do you turn to?

I have a wonderful set of friends.

 
-How do you market your book?

Social media platforms are a great way to spread the word. I also advertise via Internet publications. Plus, I have a terrific VA.

 

-Have readers ever contacted you? If so, tell us the best thing they’ve said to you.

Yes, readers regularly contact me. Their compliments are extremely rewarding.

 
-Who do you trust to read your finished books before publication?

I send the manuscript to two fantastic Beta readers. My editor is also a wonderful barometer/critic.

 
-Tell us all about your very first book signing. Take us there with your description of people, place, food, décor etc.

My very first book signing took place in San Antonio, Texas, at the lovely Menger Hotel. I was a nervous wreck and didn’t know what to expect, or how many books to bring. Authors decorated the packed room with colorful pullout and table banners. Logo’s, quotes, and character images where everywhere. My table partner was sweet and funny. She was probably as nervous as I was, since that was her first event as well. The happy cacophony of laughter and conversation and the scent of fresh popcorn are indelibly etched in the memory bank. Who knew that would be offered at the door? I also remember the aroma of chocolate. I had swag Hershey’s bites spread out on my table. I have a feeling the bites had a lot to do with the readers stopping by. They might have sold a book or two. Hershey’s bites rule!

 
-What do you enjoy when you’re not writing?

Reading is my favorite pastime.

 
-Tell us your favorite novel?

I’ll take a different tack. My favorite writer is Dorothy Dunnett. I love her series The Lymond Chronicles and House of Niccolò. The best historical fiction books ever written, in my humble opinion.

 
-What kind of advice can you give to other aspiring authors?

Hire a good editor. Editors are worth their weight in gold.

My Review:

A gripping psychological thriller that kept me turning the pages.

After waking from a coma, Maggie learns that her daughter drowned in the accident that put her in the coma and her husband has disappeared. With no memory of what happened, Maggie tries to piece together the events leading up to the accident.

The book goes from the present to the past and is interspersed with letters from a child, the tone of which changes as time in the child’s life moves on.

Plenty of twists and turns keep you guessing – wrongly – right to the end!

Excerpt:

Prologue

Twenty years ago…
      ‘Hello, Callisa.’
      The little girl stopped playing with her doll and looked up at the red-haired woman standing outside the gate.
      ‘That’s a pretty doll.’
      The girl hugged the doll tightly against her chest and stroked the flower sewn on its dress.
      ‘Has your doll got a name?’
      Callisa sucked her lip and considered the question as she studied the woman, not sure if she should answer her.
      ‘I bet I can guess her name. Is it Dolly?’
      Callisa giggled and shook her head, twirling her finger through the doll’s woollen black hair.
      ‘Is it Ebony?’
      The girl shook her head again.
      ‘I know, it’s Raven, isn’t it?’
      Callisa loosened her hold on the doll and pouted. ‘How did you know?’
      ‘I know a lot of things, the same as I know you’re special.’
      ‘Mummy says I am.’
      ‘Your mummy’s right.’ The woman smiled and rubbed her belly.
      ‘You have a big belly,’ Callisa said and then watched the woman, worried she would get angry.
      Instead the red-haired woman laughed. The sound was musical and her eyes crinkled up at the corners. ‘That’s my baby. I’m going to have a little girl.’
      Callisa tilted her head to the side and studied the woman’s belly before closing her eyes and concentrating hard. ‘I can hear her heart beating.’
      The woman nodded. ‘Come and say hello to Tei.’
      Callisa got to her feet and approached the gate, her doll discarded in the dirt. She reached out and pressed her hand to the woman’s warm belly. ‘The baby moved.’
      ‘She’s saying hello to you.’
      Callisa kept her hand on the baby, feeling a foot kick against her.
      ‘You’re going to be friends one day.’
      ‘Are we?’
      ‘Oh yes, but not for a long time. Now I need to tell you something important, Callisa. Something only you and your mummy and daddy can know.’
      ‘A secret?’ She looked up at the woman, having to squint as a shaft of sunlight blinded her. ‘I like secrets.’
      ‘You have an important job to do, Callisa. One day Kalaya will need your help.’
      ‘The island is my friend.’
      ‘The island is a friend to all of us, but not everyone understands its magic.’
      ‘Mummy and Daddy don’t see it.’
      ‘But they know you do and that’s what matters. They’ll keep you safe here, safe from everyone.’
      ‘Mummy said a spirit visited her the day I was born and told her I was a child of magic.’
      The woman ran her hand down Callisa’s black hair. ‘The spirit was right. You’re a precious child, and they can’t have you until it’s time.’
      The woman’s eyes filled with tears, but she smiled them away.
      ‘Why are you sad?’
      ‘I’m not sad, I’m happy.’ She took hold of Callisa’s hand. ‘I know you and Tei will save the magic.’
      ‘People don’t like magic.’
      The woman nodded, her long red hair drifting around her shoulders in the breeze. ‘But it won’t be like that forever. Until then, you have to be very careful who you trust.’
      Her skin had gone pale and she gripped Callisa’s hand tightly. Callisa tried to pull away, but the woman held her as she gazed at the treeline.
      The woman relaxed her hold and smiled away the fear fluttering in Callisa’s chest.
      She tried to be brave and chewed at her nail, still a little bit scared by the woman’s words.
      ‘Tei will come for you and keep you safe, I promise.’ She brushed a lock of hair behind Callisa’s ear and winked at her. ‘You’ll both grow up to be special young women.’
      The baby kicked again and the woman smiled down at her bump. ‘See, Tei’s agreeing with me.’
      ‘Callisa, come inside and wash your hands. It’s dinner time,’ her mother called from inside the house.
      ‘I have to go.’ Callisa put her hand to the spot where the baby had kicked and felt the tiny push of a foot. ‘Goodbye, Tei. See you again one day.’
      She waved to the red-haired woman and dashed towards the cottage. When she reached the doorway, she stopped and turned back. The woman was still watching her, with her hand resting on her belly.
      Callisa ran back to her, swooping up the doll as she passed. ‘This is for Tei.’
      The woman hugged the doll to her chest. ‘Goodbye, Callisa.’
      Callisa waved and ran inside without looking back.publicity ebook and paperback

Excerpt:

      Mark’s attention snapped back to the present, as his horse sharply leapt aside. Lulu’s ears were flat back and her muscles tense, and Mark hurried to steady her before she bolted.
      “What’s happening?” Damian’s voice was laced with panic.
      Mark looked around them, trying to find the source of Lulu’s unease, but there was nothing he could see that would upset the horse. Perhaps it was the scent of a predator, that spurred on such a violent reaction; but Mark had never seen anything bigger than a fox up here.
      “Dunno, it’s fine now.” Mark answered, finally turning in his saddle, when he was sure his horse wasn’t going to take off. He looked at Damian, whose bright blue eyes were wide with fear, and his hands gripped the front of the saddle again. Good old Holly looked remarkably relaxed. The little mare ignored Lulu’s antics, and was quietly grazing, waiting for her rider’s next command.
      Mark sighed, maybe they should turn back now, before he scared Damian off horses forever. And, he had to admit, before he scared him away completely.
      Mark looked at their surroundings. They had left the main track, to take a shortcut to the river. There was nothing but grass underfoot, and rough bushes hovering low to the ground.
      Mark looked closer, through the dead-looking thorns at his side, and saw a lump of stone. It was pockmarked and worn from hundreds of years in the elements, but its shape was too geometric to be accidental.
      It wasn’t unusual to come across the remains of old buildings up here, but Mark had never spotted this one before. He-
      He thought he heard a voice, deep and constant, reverberating through the air. Mark couldn’t make out what the voice was saying, the words deformed, and lost to time. Everything about him went still. The wind dropped, and the birds were silent. Mark strained harder, sure he could understand the voice, if he just tried hard enough…
      His horse suddenly squealed with fear, and reared, throwing Mark off balance. He tried to pull himself straight in the saddle, but Lulu was blinded by panic, and bolted.
      Mark felt the air shift around him, he thought he heard his name being shouted, and then with a heavy thud, everything went black.

Mike’s Anger

      With a towel wrapped around his hips, Mike ignored her and walked straight into the bedroom. Well, it was his bedroom now.
      Joanna hovered in the doorway. He dropped his towel and began to dress.
      Mike was still as handsome as the day they met, and it was obvious he was still playing squash to keep fit. She still wasn’t sure what to say now that he was angry with her.
      “I’m sorry I just left like that, Mike. I’m sorry I hurt you.”
      “You didn’t hurt me,” he said fastening his jeans. “You’ve changed a lot in these last few years, Joanna. I never realised how much freer I would feel when I didn’t constantly have to look after you. To be honest, it’s been a relief.”
      “Ouch.”
      He looked up and glared at her. “France must have suited you judging by the way you are glowing.”
      “It did, it was really lovely. I learned to ride a horse and met some really nice people.”
      “Good,” he said with obvious disinterest. “Why bother coming back at all, then?”
      She shrugged. “It was time to come home and…. what?”
      He slammed his arm into his shirt. “So you didn’t come back because you missed me then?”
      “No. I didn’t mean it like that.”
      “Of course you didn’t.” He fastened up the buttons.
      “Mike, please don’t be angry.”
“I’m not angry, I really don’t care any more.” He knelt down to tie his shoes, then walked past her and down the stairs. She followed.
      When he put on his jacket, she said, “Where are you going?”
      “It’s none of your business!”
      “Mike, please, we have a lot to talk about.”
      He opened the front door. “I’ve nothing to say to you.” He closed it quietly, but it would have been better if he had slammed it.

Author Bio:

Karen J MossmanKaren J Mossman is a grandmother, but these days that is not as old as it sounds. A grandmother can be as little as thirty-two. But Karen laughs, “It’s a long time since I’ve since thirty two, but we are who we are, and I have two beautiful grandchildren, so being a grandmother is fine.”

“I’ve always written. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t write. I started out writing just for me because it gave me pleasure and it was a form of escapism. My parents fostered and having four siblings of my own, we sometimes had up to ten children in our house, so it was nice to go somewhere, even if it was just in my head!

“The story of Joanna first came to me back in the eighties, which is why the first book was set in that era. Although I must admit, the eighties pretty much passed me by as I raised my children.”

Karen originally wrote just one book, but it became clear soon after that the ending wasn’t right. Joanna’s heart belonged somewhere else. So as the decade turned to the nineties, the second book was written and for a long time, the two stayed as one book and then put away.

Eventually, when publishing became accessible to everyone, the book re-emerged as two.

Besides writing, Karen is an avid reader and book blogger. She also loves to cross stitch and is devoted to her Yorkshire Terrier, Tilly. Living on the small island of Anglesey, off the north Wales coast, she has plenty of nearby beaches to walk with the dog and draw inspiration for stories in her head, which may, or may not come to fruition one day.

Back in 1980 Karen married the boy next door and 38 years later, it’s a decision she has never regretted.

Unspoken Rules

      “For a long time, we lived by unspoken rules. Everything was fine until you broke them.”
      “But it wasn’t fine, was it?” she told him. “I mean how open is our relationship supposed to be? We never discussed this.”
      “We didn’t talk about a lot of things?” He pulled away, “What exactly did you come back for, because it wasn’t for me, was it?” He went through to the kitchen, and she followed.
      “It was actually,” Now was the time to tell him about Niko. “Can you look me in the eye and tell me you didn’t want me to?”
      “I tell you what I don’t want,” he pointed to her stomach.

Serving as a State Representative in Pennsylvania, Mike has had the chance to make a difference. The problem closest to his heart is mental health, where he strives to break the stigma surrounding those who suffer from mental illnesses and give them hope. For Mike, this issue is personal, as he has been treated for depression and anxiety related disorders since he was 18.

That honor goes to Tweets and Consequences, an anthology about the varied ways elected officials have destroyed their careers via social media.

When not writing, Mike plays video games (both modern and old school), watches anything related to the Muppets (specifically Fraggle Rock!), reads, attempts to get to the gym, and calls his constituents on their birthdays.
