Sunday Sampler: The Book of Lost Souls

  It occurred to me that I've never posted the first chapter of THE BOOK OF LOST SOULS. I've always loved teen witch Ivy and company. They're different from the darker books I tend to write. I can't tell you how many times I laughed out loud while writing this book. When I wrote the last … Continue reading Sunday Sampler: The Book of Lost Souls

Sunday Sampler: The Book of Lost Souls

Another Summer Sunday Sampler from THE BOOK OF LOST SOULS. “Great!” Gareth said. “We lost him again. I’ll never get Spike back to normal at this rate! And when I do, he won’t like eating his mealworms. He’ll be spoiled eating insects he’s caught in the wild.” They stood at the base of the ditch where … Continue reading Sunday Sampler: The Book of Lost Souls

Sunday Sampler for July 20th: Don’t Fear the Reaper

    Another summer Sunday sampler. This week, it's another one from Don't Fear the Reaper. Keely's POV We were in a fairly large sitting area with chairs and couches arranged in clusters. A few televisions, each tuned to a different station, were on, but no one was watching them. A boy of about thirteen played … Continue reading Sunday Sampler for July 20th: Don’t Fear the Reaper

Sunday Sampler: The Book of Lost Souls

Just a typical Mother/Daughter conversation, at least for Ivy and her mom.....  “Fine. She was a fairy, okay? A fairy princess with an apparently edible dragonfly tacked to her dress. But she would have made a better dung beetle. Suits her personality.” “Ivy,” her mother said soothingly as she took a seat next to her. … Continue reading Sunday Sampler: The Book of Lost Souls

Sunday Sampler: The Haunting Season

Jess' POV Morning came a bit too bright and early. Jess glanced at the alarm clock. It was close to seven-thirty. Breakfast wasn’t until nine. Allison was still sound asleep. Jess slid out of bed, dressed as quietly as possible, and padded across the room, thankful none of the floorboards creaked. She opened the door, … Continue reading Sunday Sampler: The Haunting Season

Sunday Sampler: Don’t Fear the Reaper

Time for another excerpt! Keely's POV “Are you okay?” Banning asked. In a desperate attempt to warm what I could not, I drew my arms up against my chest. “Sure,” I lied. “Just cold. Maybe I should have brought a jacket.” The chill had little to do with the autumn air and more to do … Continue reading Sunday Sampler: Don’t Fear the Reaper

Sunday Sampler: The Book of Lost Souls

Scene with Ivy, Nick and Phoebe: Ivy narrowed her eyes. If he thought he could sway her, win her over with that come-hither charm of his, then, well, Nick Marcelli had another thing coming. She wouldn’t be swayed. Not by that smile. Not by those smoldering eyes or his dark hair or—” “Nick!” a voice … Continue reading Sunday Sampler: The Book of Lost Souls

Sunday Sampler: The Haunting Season

Samplers are great ways to get a sneak peek into a book - something past the sample chapters you can download on Amazon, B&N, and iTunes. FROM JESS'S POV: It was only when the crickets and frogs stopped that Jess awoke. She blinked, trying to adjust her eyes to the dark. She turned back over, … Continue reading Sunday Sampler: The Haunting Season
