So here is the official form for those of you who have time to read and review Melancholy of Souls on Amazon and/or Goodreads.

 

The ebook comes out February 3rd, it reads about 35-ish pages and could be classified as YA paranormal. Thank you for everyone who fills this form, your help is much appreciated:)

Stay spooked.

Melancholy of Souls Cover Reveal… just not yet

Well, 2015 is sure starting with a bang: I’ve begun writing a 10-book series called Whispered Echoes and another Girls & Ghosts novella is *almost* ready to come out! Second story from the collection, Melancholy of Souls will be available on February 3rd, but for those of you who can’t wait…

imagesDad says we have to do everything to save Mom’s soul, but I’m scared the price will be too high.

Soul Catchers scour the land looking for ghosts to sell on the black market. Amusement parks, mediums, haunted houses and religious cults will pay good money for them, especially when fresh and new. I never really cared about what they did until Mom died and one of those assholes snapped her up. Just this bright light shooting at her soul…

Now Dad’s mind is set on finding her on the lost souls trafficking circuit, but with each step we take death is only getting closer.

Stay spooked, peeps.


Cursing at the Sky is OUT!!

Cursing at the SkyHere we go, people – the first novella of the Girls & Ghosts series, Cursing at the Sky, is now available on Amazon only. It’s been called dark and haunting by some, creepy and sad by others, but all in all, I’m really pleased with it. This is a story that needed to be told.

Before the accident and the wheelchair, there were the echoes.

Drug abuse and alcohol are part of Ina’s life; just like the ghosts that haunt her nights. She draws their faces on her bedroom wall, hope this will quiet the echoes of their whispers.

Until the night a car accident changes her life forever.

Now sober and confined to a wheelchair for the rest of her life, Ina’s nights are still filled with haunting whispers as the ghosts beg her for help. Desperate for peace, she contemplates returning to the only way she knows to silence them, but her family take their own desperate measures and have her locked away.

Ina must learn what the spirits truly want, or be haunted by their echoes for the rest of her life.

That’s right, november is the most perfect month for writing, which means Whispered Echoes’ last draft should be ready before the end of the year.

This year’s #CoffinHop winner of my paperbacks and Skellies package is Marianne Su. Congrats!!

On the day of the launch, instead of staring at Amazon’s ranks while bitting my nails, I went out with Hunter’s Trap…

 

 

I might be vegetarian, but my book isn't.

Meat-cutes happen all the time at the grocery store

 

 

We got lost in the way, and Hunter got hungry. Now, the lady standing next to me is not featured in the picture, which is quite a shame. Her horrified face was priceless.

 

 

What is that you say? I'm not allowed to put ANY book Under the obsessed section?

What an honor, what a dream… what a trickery. No, this picture is NOT photoshoped, but it doesn’t reflects reality, either. Oh well, one can always hope.

 

 

 

 

 


J.A. Campbell’s Sabaska’s Quest

My friend Julie Campbell and I shared a book birthday this past Tuesday! New-ish author at Untold Press, her other titles are also available there:) So here’s my review of Sabaska’s Quest

sq_coverWhenever I read J.A. Campbell’s books, her characters always remind me the importance of friendship and how living an adventure alone is not really worth it. In Sabaska’s Quest, sequel to Sabaska’s Tale, Anna must overcome more than one battle, and with the help of her best friend, a friendly ghost and her (not big spoiler, here) crush, they travel through dimensions to succeed against the Vanir.

I love strength in Campbell’s worlds, never giving into the easy and keeping our interest by going to and fro this dimension among others. As Anna says, “History is written by the victors,” and not only did this line resound profoundly in our reality, but in others as well.

Another force of this writer: how her characters always feel real, not only by speech but by action, too. Anna is a teen, she acts and sounds like one. Her parents and her classmates also feel realistic — almost too much at times — which isn’t always the case in Fantasy.

Highly recommended for readers of all ages who enjoy a thrill ride… and horses!!

ps I WANT A TRAVELER TO CALL MY OWN!!!

pps For those of you who haven’t yet, grab a copy of Senior Year Bites, Campbell’s take on a vampire girl going through high school and my fav of hers:)

Campbell_authorpic1Julie has been many things over the last few years, from college student, to bookstore clerk and an over the road trucker. She’s worked as a 911 dispatcher and in computer tech support, but through it all she’s been a writer and when she’s not out riding horses, she can usually be found sitting in front of her computer. She lives in Colorado with her three cats, her vampire-hunting dog, Kira, her Arabian mare, Triska, and her Irish Sailor. She is the author of many Vampire and Ghost-Hunting Dog stories, the young adult fantasy series, Tales of the Travelers, and the young adult urban fantasy series The Clanless. She is also the editor of Steampunk Trails, an old west steampunk fiction magazine and a member of the Horror Writers Association and the Dog Writers of America Association.
