Warnings: This series, if made into a mini-series, would be rated R for graphic violence (including domestic), consent issues, sexual content, alcohol/smoking by main character, bad language, child kidnapping, disaster scenes, teen murder, and suicide. These books do not have happy endings, the closest you get is bittersweet. It’s noir about mobsters, yo.
But my fans love them, which is good enough for me 🙂

Sinister Souls & Dead Things by Martina McAtee

Sinister Souls & Dead Things by Martina McAtee - COVER REREVEAL

Title: Sinister Souls & Dead Things
Author: Martina McAtee
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

 
SSDT FrontSeventeen-year-old Ember Lonergan has made her pack a promise: To go after their enemies before their enemies can come for them. It was a bold statement that she has no idea how to back up. She hasn’t mastered driving on the highway, much less how to take down a hostile system of government. What’s worse, half her pack is crazy, and the other half is broken…possibly forever.

But none of that matters anymore. Ember isn’t just Ember anymore. Ember and her cousins are the prophesied Trinity, foretold to take down the druids and break the curse that’s plagued witches and reapers for centuries. The Oracle has been gathering their allies—laying the groundwork for their return—for decades, but all of that work is destroyed in an instant when Ember’s betrayed by somebody she thought she could trust.

Alliances are crumbling. Humans are missing. People are dying. The High Inquisitor has arrived. Witches have taken over the school, and they are instituting new policies every day.

Their new message is clear:

If you fight for the Trinity, you burn with the Trinity.

Excerpt:

1
ERIKA

Raindrops pelted the windshield of the rust-bucket truck Erika had borrowed from Ian’s dad. Nearly an hour had passed since she’d seen the lights of the last police car recede in her rearview mirror, but her fingers still shook as she turned on the windshield wipers. They were little help. The spittle of rain turned the dusty windshield into a muddy mess, and the sun-rotted rubber of the wipers streaked the glass.

The jacked-up truck tackled the harsh terrain of the desert like a pro. The police cars were no match for barrel cacti and creosote bushes as large as small cars. The local Ajo police that had tried to stop them likely didn’t know that they were chasing a human-alien hybrid that had escaped, again, from a secret underground lab controlled by the clandestine organization known as The Makers. The Makers had surely spun the lies necessary to convince local law enforcement that Tex was a dangerous fugitive. Ironic. The lie had become the truth. Erika and Tex were, in fact, fugitives on the run and again fighting for their lives. It was like déjà vu all over again.

Erika’s bottom was bruised from bouncing on the seat. Her wrists ached from gripping the wheel. After nearly an hour of rough riding, they hit a two-lane road going east. Erika was heading to New Mexico, where her Aunt Dana, her father’s sister, lived. Without complications, they would get to Aunt Dana’s in about eight hours. If she’ll have us.

Tex had been quiet but awake as Erika navigated the bumpy ground. Once they reached the smooth pavement, he tucked his knees to his chest, hugged his arms around his legs, and became a silent egg-shaped blob on the seat next to her. Erika had seen him withdraw into himself before, but he was even more quiet and still than usual.

Erika wished he’d have stayed awake longer. She wanted to pry answers out of him. She had questions about his time with the Conexus, when he had been linked directly to their hive-mind collective. Ever since Dr. Randall had unhooked Tex from the Conexus, he was acting distant and short-tempered. Erika wondered what had really happened to him during his time with the Conexus. And what did he mean when he spoke of struggles for humans to come and the knowledge he got from the Conexus? She hoped he would answer these questions and more when they got to Aunt Dana’s.

And what if the Greys are only the beginning?

On a nondescript planet on the far side of the galaxy, the M’Uktah have evolved from a wolf-like predatory creature into a highly advanced species that has mastered intergalactic travel. They are cultured. Refined.

Library Journal eBook Selection
 
H.A.L.F. (Human Alien Life Form) #9 is the product of genetic engineering, the union of human and alien DNA. Created to be a weapon in a secret war we don’t know is coming, he proved too powerful to control. He has lived for seventeen years in an underground lab, sedated and trained to be a cold-blooded killing machine.
 
But H.A.L.F. 9 has escaped the lab and the sedation has worn off. He has never been more alive. More powerful. Or more deadly.
 
While H.A.L.F. 9 revels in his newfound freedom, Erika Holt relaxes in the desert with friends. But a typical Saturday night soon erupts into chaos when fate brings her together with H.A.L.F. 9. Erika is forced to make a choice that will irretrievably change her life. If she chooses to help H.A.L.F. 9 escape, her fate will become intertwined with his in what will become an intergalactic adventure. Little do any of them know that their actions trigger a vast New World Order conspiracy which began after the UFO crash in Roswell in 1947. Will H.A.L.F. 9 be reeled back in, once again forced to do the bidding of the Makers? And will any of them survive the dangers of The Deep Beneath them?

Guest Post by Natalie Wright:

The Four Seasons of H.A.L.F.

SummerIf you were a season, what season would you be? Are you a fiery, passionate summer? A cool, calm winter?

I had not considered this in terms of my characters while writing, but I recently wondered what seasons are my characters?

Erika Holt, the main character of the H.A.L.F. series, has a fiery nature. She’s passionate about causes but nothing brings out her fire more than someone messing with the people she cares about. She’d go to the ends of the Earth—and beyond!—for her friends. Erika represents the heat of summer.
 
Fall
 

Tex, aka H.A.L.F. 9, personifies the changeable nature of fall. One minute the weather is mild, the next blustery. In autumn it’s like the weather is trying to make up its mind. Tex can seem that way as well, but maybe it’s because he’s still trying to figure out how to be human. Fall may be unpredictable, but we love it anyway. That’s how Erika seems to feel about Tex too!

 

WinterOf all the characters you’ll meet in the H.A.L.F. series, I think Anna Sturgis is like the cold breath of winter more than any of the others. With her icy blue eyes and golden curtain of hair, she looks like a “winter,” and her personality matches. It’s not that she’s a cold person. Jack gets to see her personable side. But Anna is cool and collected, reasoned and logical. In short, she is often everything that Erika isn’t. Can Jack fall for a winter girl after being so in love with a summer?

Spring

 

Speaking of Jack, he is a spring breeze. With his sun-kissed curly blonde locks, laid-back flip-flops and loose-fitting jeans, Jack is like a shoot of bright green new growth poking up through the soil. He’s a peace-loving, guitar-strumming lover not a fighter. Jack faces life and death situations throughout the H.A.L.F. series. After stepping over dead bodies on the battlefield, will his sweet spring nature endure?

Author: Kevin Fleming
Genre: SciFi Fantasy
 

The Storyteller’s Book

Book 1

1. The Storytellers Book - ebook_400x600“ … you must realise and accept, neither me, your mum, nor either of you are human.”

Nick and Mel are 14 year old twins living normal lives with their parents. When they discover an ancient book in their attic and read from it, strange events begin to happen around them. Something has been awakened which prompts their parents to take them away to a town called Midway where they reveal to the twins that they are not human. They had been hidden on Earth, brought up as though they were human, awaiting the right moment for the truth to be told.

When their parents mysteriously disappear on their first night away, they are forced to discover for themselves what their roles are in the new lives they’ve been thrown into. They struggle alone as they try to understand and balance their past human lives with their alien destiny. When the book they discovered at their home is stolen, it falls on the twins to recover it. The book has a lot more power than they realised, and if they fail, it will not be they who suffer, but the whole human race.

Along the way, they meet an array of characters, some will become friends, some will become enemies, who can they trust? For now, they can trust only each other.

Amazon * Goodreads

 

Excerpt:

      Far below, and for as far as they could see into the distance, pushing through the mist, was not countryside, but the enormous curve of the Earth itself. You weren’t supposed to be able to see the curve of the Earth horizon unless you were very high above the surface; they’d learned that fact from Mr Schober in school during one of the times he’d been diverted from his lesson plan. So it couldn’t be just an extension of the hill they were stood upon that sloped off miles towards the horizon. That was the Earth, the planet Earth, detached from where they stood, floating and turning ever so slowly on its axis. As incredible as it was, Nick and Mel were not on the surface of that planet, but looking down from somewhere detached. They were somehow high above, and yet here they stood on fresh moist grass, breathing warm sea air. How could they be looking down on the Earth? Especially as they’d arrived here with their parents … in a car!

Amazon * Goodreads

 

Excerpt:

      Mel set off walking slowly, taking only short steps and reaching her hands out in front of her to feel for anything to guide her. She felt an uneven rocky wall, cold and damp, but she followed it as it took her in the rough direction she wanted to go. There seemed to be increasing light as she continued, and when she reached the end of the passage and turned, she stood open mouthed in awe at what she could see. Celeste came up alongside her and for a few moments the girls remained silent, looking in wonderment at the cavern before them.
      Everywhere glistened with sparkling, dazzling lights. The low ceiling of rock, the walls and pillars, even the floor glowed with millions of rich, lively colours. They danced and flickered, changing tone and pattern. They moved and pulsated as they exuded flowing waves of living colour in a kaleidoscope of beauty. Everywhere was filled with an intoxicating air of overwhelming purity, far removed from the drab deadness that was above ground. Mel walked slowly, keeping in mind the direction they needed to follow. She ran her hand gently on the cavern wall as she walked and gasped as she felt warmth and life flow up her arm and fill every inch of her body.
      “Celeste, what an amazing place this is.” She felt so happy and relaxed.
      “It is wondrous indeed, Melandra.”
      “Just touching the walls I can feel the colour, the strength, the power and the beauty of it all.”
      Celeste put her hand on the wall near Mel. “I have not seen or felt anything like this before.”
      “I can feel the life of Kothkish all around us, and it makes me want to hug the walls.”
      Mel turned to face the cavern wall and stretched out her arms and rested her body against it as if trying to embrace the cavern. After a moment she turned and sat down on the floor with her back and head resting against the glowing stones.
      “It’s just so comfortable here, Celeste, I can feel words flowing through me, it’s so strange.”
      Celeste sat beside her. “This is a most astonishing place, Melandra, I too can hear words as though voices were singing inside my head; such beautiful music.”
      The girls closed their eyes and relaxed, soaking in the peace that flowed from their surroundings.

Join Nick and Mel in this story of redemption and second chances as they continue their quest to fulfil their destiny in The Warlords of Shreen, the third book of The Chronicles of Midway series.

Amazon * Goodreads

 

Excerpt:

      The door to the dream room creaked open and quiet footsteps walked in. The twins remained on their backs but turned their heads to see who’d entered, already sensing it would be Rufus.
      “I take it the dream room has completed its story.” His sombre tones acknowledging the effect it had had on the twins.
      “Why?” Mel asked, calmly.
      Rufus looked down at her.
      “Why?” she asked again more forcefully.
      “Melandra?”
      She jumped to her feet and stood unsteadily as she regained her balance. “Why does it have to happen this way, Rufus?” She spread out her arms inviting answers.
      “No-one said it would be easy.”
      “Not easy?” She looked at the old man, tears of anger and exhaustion in her eyes. “I can think of ways to describe it other than … not easy.”
      “Melandra, we are in the midst of a struggle that has gone on for thousands of years to lift the human race to its feet. You and your brother, whether you like it or not, have vital roles to play. The fact that Midway has chosen to show you so much is proof that this is the way it is meant to be.”
      Nick was now standing beside his sister. “If we didn’t go back in time to save Douglas, what would happen?”
      “He would die when the bullet hits his heart. He would not return home. He would not marry Eleanor. The four children would not be born. Three of the warlords would not be captured. All four warlords would wreak havoc, resulting in the destruction of humankind. Malvern and his Malum-Atra would succeed. The universe, this universe would cease its existence as no life would remain in it and …” He sighed and looked pleadingly at Nick and Mel. “You know that is not the way it is meant to be.”
      The twins stood defiantly before Rufus looking him in the eye but saying nothing.
      He made one final plea. “The human world is once again reaching out to you.”
      The twins took a last look at Rufus, and knowing what they had to do, walked past him through the door leaving the old man alone in the dream room.

Amazon * Goodreads

 

Excerpt:

      Although Nick was receiving more information than he’d heard before of Celeste and the race of angels, more questions seemed to be dropping into his head. “How much do you know about me and Mel?”
      Celeste turned to Nick with a questioning look. “With what regard?”
      “This whole destiny we’re supposed to have. We were brought here suddenly and told the time of our calling was upon us, that we had a destiny to fulfil. Are we really supposed to become custodian or warden, or whatever it is, as people seem to suggest? If so, when? Does your father know the answers? Because if he brought all the Shreen angels back at the same time as we came, he must know more about us than we know ourselves.”
      “I have asked my father many times about you and about all that is meant to happen,” Celeste replied, “but his answers are vague. I do not believe he is hiding information from me, but the more likely explanation is that he doesn’t know exactly what is to happen.”
      “It’s so frustrating knowing there’s so many secrets.”
      “Calling them ‘secrets’ implies people are keeping information from you, but I do not think that is the case.”
      Nick gave a long sigh. “I wish I could open up a set of wings and fly like you.”
      “Why?”
      “I don’t know, maybe so I could escape for a while and be free from all these problems … questions … secrets.”
      “I find no freedom in flying, Nicholas.”
      “You must do.”
      “Why do you think I fly in the middle of the night? I have already told you: because my father forbids me to open my wings in this universe, I must fly without his knowledge.”
      “I know. But just to have that ability must be fantastic.”
      Celeste stayed silent.
      “I can understand Alioth’s concern if he lost his wife, he doesn’t want to lose you the same way.”
      “Now you are beginning to sound like him, Nicholas,” Celeste teased.
      The two smiled at each other.
      In the far distance beyond the silhouetted shape of the castle, the sky was showing its first signs of morning light, but Nick’s eyes were beginning to feel heavy. He pulled his dressing gown tightly around him.
      “I think it is time for me to return to the angels’ suite,” Celeste said, sadly.
      “I’m sorry I disturbed your flight.”
      “There is no need to apologise, Nicholas, I enjoyed speaking with you. I do not often have the opportunity to speak of my own family.”

Guest Post by Kevin Fleming:

How The Chronicles of Midway came into being

The Chronicles of Midway began life over twenty years ago as a short story I wrote for my children. It existed in its original form for over a decade but was always floating in and out of my thoughts prompting the question: What happened next? As someone who had no patience writing novels, apart from not being able to find the time through running a business, I couldn’t give an answer.
 
What moved me to action, I don’t know, but one day I sat down at my PC and typed ‘Chapter 2’. I had absolutely no idea what was going to happen next, but as I typed, the characters started to come alive. Once that happened, they became real people with their own thoughts and ideas, all I did was put a few guidelines in as to what type of world I wanted them living in.
 
I didn’t even know if a second chapter would complete the story, it didn’t, neither did a third or fourth. It took me over twenty chapters to finish the tale, but when I looked at how it ended, I realised the first, original short story that had started the whole thing off, although absolutely crucial to the whole thing, gave too much away. I had to completely re-write the first chapter.
 
My own personal preference when reading a book or watching a movie is that there needs to be an ending, a satisfactory ending. I don’t mean it always has to be ‘happy ever after’, a resolution of any sort will suffice, as long as I’m not left dangling with a load of unanswered questions. With The Storyteller’s Book, although I’d given an ending, there was so much more that had to be dealt with, too many characters with incomplete stories of their own. When I continued through The Mines of Kothkish and The Warlords of Shreen, more characters arrived with their own stories to tell. By now, I had a vague idea where I was going, but even so, it was the characters that were driving the story. I had to take enough control to ensure every question would have an answer, and there would be nothing left that was unresolved.
 
Although the original short story was replaced at the very beginning of book one, I saved it for the very end of book four. In terms of the chronology, the action did take place before The Storyteller’s Book, but it was only revealed near the end of Carnival of the Otherworld. It was the best way it was going to work and saved the biggest revelation to the end.
 
So that, briefly, is how The Chronicles of Midway came into existence. It was an absolute pleasure to write, I enjoyed not knowing what was going to happen next, so it was almost as a reader that I discovered the characters and got to know them. Now that it’s over, it feels sad that they will no longer be occupying my every thought as they struggled with the tasks before them. They have left this universe for good and will never come back … but, as I have no control over them, they are living beings with minds of their own, so I suppose maybe one day they may choose to return to see how we’re getting on.
 
One particular character a felt such sympathy for was Dora who was introduced in The Warlords of Shreen.
 
Despite knowing Carnival of the Otherworld would be the final book, I still didn’t know what the outcome would be for Nicholas and Melandra. Would one of them become Custodian of the Council, if so, which one?
 
The final revelation for me was the fate of Dora, a character introduced in The warlords of Shreen. I had no idea who she was going to be or how I’d provide a satisfactory resolution for her. I felt sorry for her, I’d caused her so much turmoil and pain in her life, I wanted her to have a happy ending. Then I realised there was a vacancy for a scribe four thousand years ago, I was genuinely pleased for her that she found a place where she could fit in and be accepted.
 
I think it was necessary not knowing who the boy was until then.

Amazon * Goodreads

Excerpt:

“Let me tell you a story about the girl I lost. Then, perhaps we can be friends? I do miss having someone to talk to since my best friend left me behind.”
“I don’t know, Cedric. You’re a little out of my league at this rate.” Praying he had not offended him, Tony topped off Cedric’s glass, eyeing the missing finger once more. “You can call me Tony.”
“Well, Tony, I’ll make it a Thursday ritual to tell you my story. I have nothing else to do while I wait. It’s been far too long since I last indulged in another’s companionship.” There was a burdensome sigh from his fanged mouth and his eyes dulled. “I lost my best friend not too long ago. The old dog lived far too long for his kind, but I was glad to have someone like that to help me during those hard times. Good friends are hard to come by, especially in my case.”
“So sorry to hear that,” Tony watched as the vacant stare of Cedric’s green eyes seemed far off for several minutes. The weight of pain and sorrow was unmistakable in his gaze. “It’s never good to lose a close friend.”
“Where to start?” The shine had returned to Cedric’s eyes as he finished another glass of vodka and nodded for his refill. “How about the first night I saw her? It’s only appropriate. Like the poet said so many years ago; whoever loved that loved not at first sight…”
“Yes, tell me about this girl of yours.” Tony eagerly refilled the glass waiting to hear what kind of story this was going to be.

 

Romasanta: Father of Werewolves

Book 2

RomasantaCover_397x600Romasanta finds himself a cursed man and struggles with his internal demon, literally. All his troubles start with a stone and after that he will be losing everything he’s ever loved. Faced with clinging on to what little humanity he has, he will lose it many times before reaching the end of his journey. His life’s tale will take you through time to see how every lore, every moment in history tied in with wolves all come back to him. They call him the Ancient One, others simply refer to him as the Father of Werewolves, but we know him by his name, Romasanta. Many battles will be fought before he gets closer to his goals, but will he be ready to finish what was asked of him at the very beginning of his horrible fate. Will he be able to return the Eye of Gaea and free the love of his life from the laurel tree in the Black Forest?

AmazonGoodreads

Excerpt:

An alcove held a glimmering gem about the size of a man’s fist. As he approached, its light became brighter, as if encouraging him to free it from the stone. Gripping it tight with both hands, he steadied a foot on the rocks, putting his full weight into pulling it out. Jerking his weight into it, it broke from the rock face sending him tumbling up against the far wall. As he leaned there, the sunlight hitting his hands, he opened his fist to see what it was that he had claimed for himself.
The gemstone’s light dissipated and within it, a liquid bubbled and swirled.
He had heard rumors of bloodstones found in the area, but this was the first time he had encountered one. The powerful vibrations the gem gave off told him this could be something more. It was of the deepest red he had ever witnessed as it mesmerized him. Heat flowed from it, making the summer temperature feel cool by comparison. Focusing on a sound that tickled his ears it seemed as if a humming sound was coming from it. A curious sound called his attention deeper into it, almost as if a whisper on the wind.
Growling broke him away from the stone. His gaze stopped at two large golden eyes that glowered down at him. Fenrir had found him. Romasanta shivered as the demon wolf took another step closer, baring his enormous fangs.
Staring in awe, one canine was the size of Romasanta’s forearm, if not larger.
Another step forward allowed him to smell the blood of his bull upon Fenrir’s breath as he growled louder. The sound coming from the beast’s chest and muzzle shook the air from Romasanta’s lungs. He had overstepped his boundaries. Fenrir was enraged. The black wolf had planned to lure him out this far the whole time. Pain pounded against Romasanta’s chest, his heart screaming to be set loose as fear washed over him. Fenrir had him; he was to be the next kill. As the monstrous wolf lunged, Romasanta could only raise his arms in defense. The action would do him no good against the demon wolf.
Fangs dug deep into his arms. He screamed from the twisting pain as muscles popped in half, bones rattled as the impact greeted them. Blinding red light stopped the horrendous bite from breaking his bones. Fenrir’s eyes grew wide. The stone pulsed and burned in Romasanta’s hand as a red glow engulfed the demon wolf. Both of them were startled as the massive monster swirled in the air like fog. Horrified, Romasanta watched as the stone absorbed the demon into it.

AmazonGoodreads

Excerpt:

It wasn’t her first time there in Tony’s bar with its neon sign out front blinking The Lion’s Den through the dark tinted windows. Still, like the last visit here, the smell of smoke overwhelmed her. She had grown sensitive to smell, touch and even her sight looked into dark corners as if lit by an unseen torch. Most of the bar was dark with nothing more than yellow-toned bulbs, her ears hearing them buzzing as they casted shadows on the patrons who loitered under them. It wasn’t very busy, but they had come long before the main rush.
This was her way, Cedric’s way, of slowly helping her grow more comfortable with this new world she knew nothing about.
Everyone had told her their own version of what had happened the day they found the entrance into Avalon. The bar had been destroyed when the portal opened and they leapt in, magic lashing out in angry swipes like a wild animal.
Tony insists Badbh the Battle Goddess had been the front runner in wiping out most of the place. She had destroyed the bar top with the pool table and then the rest of the furniture afterwards impatiently waiting for Avalon to return to its former state, eager to join the battle. None of that damage could be seen. The bar top was glossy black with her reflection staring up at her doe-eyed. The long countertop came off the wall in a large ‘L’ shape from the entrance to where it protected the office door. A new pool table lay under a long fluorescent light and spiraling out from there were several tables and chairs until your eyes hit the walls adorned with booths hugging around them.
The Lion’s Den had become a meeting place for creatures and demons alike.
It was a much needed hub for the rebuilding of a community where they no longer fought for the top of the pyramid of power in this new age. Many hadn’t a clue they were weighed on these imaginary scales, but there was no mistaking they were frightened by those who dominated the top: Lillith, Cedric and Romasanta. Merlin had taken down some of the strongest nonhumans in the world. With the Eye of Gaea keeping him safe from recoils and even curses, he had dwindled their numbers to the point where humanity was choking out the remaining populations to near extinction. All that remained were half-breeds or those who rarely left the many sanctuaries keeping them hidden from modern man.

Guest Post by Valerie Willis:

It was brought to my attention that I should take a moment to talk to the readers and fans of The Cedric Series.

I wish to share my inspirations for writing this story. This will explain a lot on how I came about creating these amazing ideas, characters, creatures, and events as a fictional work with heavy fantasy and romance elements in the mix. If one really wanted to drag out all its genres, I could label this a historical fiction, mythology, or even occult and paranormal. So far, Fantasy Romance has done this work the most justice for my readers’ expectations.

Historical fiction can be applied to several parts throughout the series, whether it’s a  scene, event, or even a reflection of a character and their on-goings. What do I mean by this? Well a lot of you might get the Vladimir Tepes, or Vlad the Impaler references, but it dove deeper than that. King Frederic was the First King of Germans, the lepers in those times did indeed have to ring bells and seek refuge in colonies, Cerdanya was a  real trade town, and so on. There are a ton of subtle hints here and there because I  wanted to bring the unseen, untold side of the history during Medieval Times to a  tangible state.

As far as the Mythology side of this series, I wanted to teach you all my version of forgotten lores, legends, and mythology. I did my best to not use anything that was newer than the 12th Century as I dug deep. Some of the concepts weaved in with my own perception was hard to obtain and justify. There was a lot of book buying, digging through a Medieval-age bestiary, and though I scoured the internet, it failed me often in my journey for research. As I created and developed each character, I did my best to tie them into one or more myths so that I may weave a wondrous story without limits. At the same time, I wanted some of you to get caught in a conversation or sitting in class and have that moment of, “Oh! I know how this myth goes!”

Let me enlighten you all on some of the tales, history, legends and myths stitched into  some of these amazing characters you have experienced so far:

Cedric takes after a very forgotten and neglected epic legend from Medieval Times of the  Russian Knight Hero, Ilya Muromets. Search him, check it out and feel free to compare what you unknowingly learned about this amazing legend. You’ll be excited to see a red haired knight on a black horse as one of the images in the mix.

Included in this was some really obscure Romanian beliefs involving early vampire-like stories. The off-shoots involving the strigoi showed less of fear towards these vampire creatures, but held a tone of sorrow and remorse. People who became these creatures had not finished living their lives (Including not ever getting married) and met the insane stipulations to come back as one of the undying. Truly interesting, and I can only hope to capture that same empathetic tone I had discovered in my digging.

Barushka combines a few tales as well, starting with his name drawn from the Russian  Knight Hero tales. Other than that, I focused heavily on the Shag Foal lores. I was intrigued by the first few variants I stumbled on and found that the internet proved void of information. Amazingly, the hairy phantom horse tales started so long ago, there was  o exact date as to when they began. The folklore was mysteriously always there. Adding to my wonder about this lore was the fact I stumbled on a 1927 Naturalist journal that devoted a section to them. Even this far forward, it was believed it may be an undiscovered species of horse! Despite that, the one thing I saw reflected in all the writing was that a shag foal approaches lone travelers and scares them so much that they run off to their deaths.
Never once did the research say the horse actively killed someone. Morrighan, Badbh,  and Nemaine were derived from the tales involving the evil sorcerer Calatin. This was the older tale involving them that did not mix the three as one entity. There are no words to describe my frustration and disappointment at how many times that Badbh and Nemaine were labeled as alternative names for Morrighan.
Especially when the story of the Legendary Cuchulainn made it clear that they were three sisters each with unique powers. Seeing that Badbh and Morrighan had earned the title of Goddess at some point through the passing of time, I felt the need to give Nemaine her own placement as a Goddess as well.

Romasanta is the most complex of all my characters. His name is taken from a man in history that is not as common as it once was, Manuel Blanco Romasanta. He was the first serial killer to be trailed and as you read book two of the Cedric Series you will see a lot of that history drawn upon. Feeding off the tragic aura, I pulled in both werewolf and wolf-related myths and lores, wanting to show a more accurate flow through a single entity. It was my intentions to bring in familiar aspects and add in the historically  forgotten complications that modern book culture has failed to take into account. Those wellversed in mythology will be able to pick out elements on their own,  but the amount of lore here is wide. Tales of Apollo and Daphne, Pan and Pitip, Fenrir, versipellis,  Romanian beliefs of vampires were caused by a werewolf, Wolf of the Cemetery from  Haiti, Romulus and Remus, and so on. There are deep seeds that I only give you teasers to the mythology that is mentioned here.

As for the monsters, you can say thank you to the Medieval Bestiaries. There are so many wild and crazy creatures in these that are no longer touched that I wanted to bring them to life again. Orms, Jidra, and Aitvaras were a few of the frightening things that travelers spoke of and warned each other about in their explorations. I can only imagine what they may have been based on, but there is a great sense of pride I take in including such monsters into my story. Granted, I have not followed their descriptions exactly and have embellished them with my own imagination, but I hope they make my stories more memorable.

In the end, I encourage my thirsty readers to explore what you’ve read in my Cedric  Series. Search the names, look deeper in the scenes, places, events and discover these in more detail. My goal is to introduce you to the forgotten lores and history while adding my own perspective and imagination into the mix. May this tale make its mark in your heart and open your world to the legacy our ancestors once talked about over the dinner table so long ago!

Happy reading and discovery!

Before filming starts on her next movie, America’s sweetheart, Grace Carradine, wants a girls’ night out. As she dons a disguise to evade the paparazzi, her brown hair isn’t the only deception, so is her upcoming marriage to her costar. Naval-pilot-turned-author, Sebastian “Bash” Baron finds his friends are pairing up and starting families. Given his history, he knows that life isn’t for him—even if the period romance he wrote is being made into a movie. Those stories only exist in fiction—or other people’s lives.

The two begin a secret romance, meant to last only as long as the starlet is on location in Bash’s hometown. When the paparazzi, obligations, and pride tear them apart, will Bash come to his senses in time, or will Grace marry the wrong man?

Excerpt:


Grace had to believe they’d met at the moment they were ready for each other—that every experience they encountered was in preparation for their joining. She chose to hold that truth to her heart, otherwise she’d dwell on how close she’d come to losing him forever. “I think time is finally on our side. We have decades to be together.”


Bash smiled. “A millennium wouldn’t be enough time to love you.”
