My paranormal, magic and realism book Severed Ties is published by Damnation Books- About the book: By the use of divination and magic, some ties can never be severed.

Excerpt:
Sandra leaned against the door frame, reached into her low-rider jeans’ back pocket and produced an envelope. She passed the folded paper to her. Frankie stared at the picture, reading the words: Child Find, Missing; young female seventeen, eyes hazel, brown hair, height 5’7”, weight 120.

“How could you keep this from me?” she asked, tightening her grip on the envelope.

“I didn’t. Yesterday, my mom received her Visa bill. She gave me the envelope when she saw Candice’s picture. I phoned her parents. They are in the middle of a divorce. Her mom said when they first split, she began to stay out late. Then one day she just never came home.”

“We have to find her. The police haven’t been able to,” Frankie said, waving the envelope.

“We will do what we must do to track her. Did you bring your cards?”

“Yes.”

“Come with me,” she said, grabbing her hand. She dragged her into the dish room stopping to retrieve her Tarot deck from the pocket of her jean jacket.

Hello!

The September Voting Poll is up.

It’s September, that month of crisp leaves cool fresh air, and the book cover for my novella Severed Ties is entered into the You Gotta Read Reviews Cover Contest. Cover Artwork by Dawné Dominique http://www.dusktildawnDesigns.yolasite.com

The paranormal, magic and realism story is entry # 2. Voting will be between September 21 and September 26.

Family, friends and followers please stop by http://yougottaread.com to cast your VOTE in the contest.

Thank you so much for your time and support!

If you haven’t tried Severed Ties, here’s a little taste –

Calvin relaxed on the couch. He watched them and listened as he attempted to take in what they were doing. Suddenly, the ceiling light blinked on then off. He felt the room chill. He looked upward and could see an orb, shining in rich glow float through the window. He didn’t know what to think. He just stared at it, and said not a word. He observed the orb, brilliant and illuminating, quietly with a slow glide of movements, move through the room, and descend. He witnessed the sparkling orb transform into a faint image of an older woman. Her aged hair in a tight bun, and she wore a long, billowing cotton coat. She floated between Sandra and Frankie. He watched in disbelief as she transformed back into a barely, there visible orb.

The girls cut their decks with their left hand and restacked them. They tossed the top card on to the bedspread, upright. Similarities, in the tarot and ordinary playing card existed. Frankie turned over the nine of diamonds, Sandra, the Magician.

“You can pull this off,” Sandra beamed, looking in her eyes. “With the Magician, Frankie, you can accomplish anything you put your mind to. You need to be daring, and success will follow. It’s time to stretch your limits.”

“With the nine of diamonds,” Frankie said, staring at Sandra, “if bold steps are needed, they will prove to be easier than anticipated or feared. I need to be brave and tackle going into the strip club in a straightforward way.”

“Okay. Tell me what just happened,” Calvin asked, shaking his head in disbelief.

“The cards are a valued tool,” Sandra explained, as she put her deck back in a protective, hand-sewn pouch. She pulled the drawstring to contain the energies. “The cards are a personal tool for communication with our Spirit Guides.”

“Unseen forces really are working in our favor,” Frankie interrupted.

“We consult the cards when we’re faced with a problem and need guidance. We receive messages for what we need to know to advance or retreat.”

“Really,” he said, nodding. He didn’t know what to say. He still couldn’t believe what he had seen.

The two girls paid him no attention.

“Let me touch up my makeup. Then, we’ll go.” Frankie applied her usual black eyeliner and lipstick.

“Sandra, tell me more about your Spirit Guides,” Calvin asked, sitting on the tiny, weathered couch.

Coming Soon – At the Edge

17 Sep

ID-10029251

NEW BOOK coming from Angie Skelhorn. I’m delighted to announce my contemporary women’s fiction book At the Edge is accepted for publication by Eternal Press.
http://eternalpress.biz

What’s The Book About?

Carm a whole-some farm girl marries her first love, and then abandoned everything she knows. After six weeks of marriage, when a devastating storm kills her husband, she’s a widow. In a strange city, torn by her loss, young, scared and no resources she begins to live a life she wasn’t ready for. Her emotions extremely low, and to make it comfortable to live in her own skin she turns to drugs and alcohol to self medicate. She is pushed to the edge as her relationships become tremulous. Haunted by her deceased husband and an introduction to Gretchen, a witch becomes a blessing. Carm learns secrets about her past, present, future and potential.


“AT THE EDGE” – Real people developing relationships; while Carm is struggling to pick up the pieces after the death of her husband.

In this book I provide a unique insight into the drug world and mysticism – addiction and the belief that direct knowledge of ultimate reality is attainable through intuition and the unseen world.


Now Available – Severed Ties

By the use of divination and magic, some ties can never be severed.

In the beginning, by the light of the Full Moon, Frankie connects with Candice’s energy through dream time and witnesses her involvement in a terrifying act of violence. After receiving information from Sandra that their childhood friend is missing, they pack their bags and head to the inner city to find her.

Frankie, afraid for her own safety, has a chance encounter with a local named Calvin who is plugged into what’s happening. Using his workable ideas—as well as Frankie and Sandra consulting tarot, ordinary playing cards, astrology, and spell-casting—they set forth to free Candice from the dangerous situation she is in.
