Character Chit-Chat with Meredith Blackburn

It's been too long since we've had a character chit-chat and I know just the character, Meredith Blackburn. We're interrupting her just before Witching Hour Madness. There's a big event going on in the magical community. It's Halloween and there's a Samhain Ball being held by the upper crust. It's an important night. Let's find out why...

So, Meredith, what's going on tonight?

Meredith: The Samhain Ball is happening. It's one of the more important events within the magical society. Tonight we'll lock ourselves away until morning to show our support of our treaties swearing to let those who have passed be free of our influence.

You mean people who have died? Why is this so important?

Meredith: Yes. The veil that separates the world of the living and world of the dead is thinnest tonight and travel between the two is easier and more common on this night. Magic users could bond with the dead and trap them, but it's very wrong. We lock ourselves away to allow the spirits to move freely without that worry.

Okay. That makes since. What else is going on with this Ball?

Meredith: Well, like any large event there are always behind the door deals. Marriage agreements, business contracts and even loan repayments have been known to take place. This year is also the first year the Oasis group is hosting the ball. It's bound to be a treat as they've been petitioning to host for over a  decade.

Alright, on to the gossip. Are you taking a date tonight?

Meredith: Malcolm Blackwood is joining me tonight. It'll be our first venture out into society as an official couple. I'm not sure what to expect from the other families and organizations, but it's well passed time to care.

That's right and where is Malcolm? Getting ready?

Meredith: That is a good damned question and it brings us to the end of this interview. I have some hunting to do.

And with that Meredith Blackburn set off in search of her wayward lover, leaving this writing sitting alone with a notepad and pen.

What to find out what happens? Read Witching Hour Madness and find out.

The Witching Hour is upon them, and Meredith Blackburn finds herself navigating family politics and community gossip. When the doors lock down, so does her magic, and she starts to wonder about the foreboding feeling that has been tickling her neck all night.

With Meredith at his side, Malcolm Blackwood is ready to face the elite magic community he once ran away from. Asked to help track down a missing magical threat, he finds something more frightening than the golden ring in his pocket.

Can they stop an ancient threat? Or will the magic users be consumed?

Full Moon New Releases (Sept. 2019)

It's time for our full moon new releases! This time it falls on a Friday the 13th! How perfect. Best of luck finding an awesome new book.

Darklight by Bella Forrest

I celebrated when vampires were declared extinct.

Those beasts had preyed on humanity for millennia, committing senseless, brutal murders. Like the rest of my colleagues at the Occult Bureau, I looked forward to a world where we could all sleep at night—where constant cover-up jobs were no longer required to keep the public calm and unaware.

But the end of vampires wasn’t the end of our problems. It was only the beginning.

Other blood-sucking creatures began to lurk in the night. As soon as I turned twenty-one, I became a ground agent at the Bureau because I wanted—no, needed—to join the fight.

And then Dorian Clave burst into my life—turning everything I thought I knew into quicksand. Vampires like him were killers who devoured humanity’s inner darkness until shadows danced beneath their skin. Yet there was more to him than that.

He showed me that light cannot exist without the dark, and that trying to fight this balance would have consequences our human minds couldn’t even comprehend.

Because sometimes darkness needs to exist.

Locked behind the walls of a convent in the holy lands kept me safe, but they also kept me from living. That is until I give myself in a sacrifice to the Elemental Powers. They send me three strong men in which I have to form a bond.

Tate, my earth element, was a childhood friend that I had fallen in love with. Seeing Tate again, my heart aches to be close to him, and I can’t control these new desires.

Lindon, my wind element, who is charming and seductive. We will discover our powers together as he is just learning his. That is if we can keep our hands off one another long enough.

Brier, my water element, the commander, is a force I feel stronger than the others. He has suffered the same as me, and it has broken his powers. I have to figure out a way to put him together again for what we must do.

They have freed me, but I am not safe until I am out of this realm. Ogres who want my blood because they are drawn to it by the curse are after us. The one I call Brown is the most dangerous of them all. I fear him the most, but I cannot let that stop me.

I want to live again, and I have made my sacrifice to do so. My promise to the Elementals has to be fulfilled, or else I will never get my water element back. The bond between each of us will strengthen the powers of the elements and give them new life.

Or else the Fire Elements will win. Their element has become too powerful, and they are claiming the earth in which we live. I intend to claim it again.

However, first, I have to find my balance with these three men and make it out of this realm…alive.

To save her family from a tyrant king, Mara of Aremond must win a tournament—and she won’t let anyone stop her from claiming the prize. Especially not Strax, the barbarian warrior who has tormented her every step of the way. But when a sorcerer’s trap binds them together, Mara must decide whether Strax is her greatest enemy, or if everything she seeks can only be found in the barbarian’s arms… 

That's it for now. Hope you can find a great new read!

What's Coming Up For star Crossed

With the release of Witching Hour Madness the end to the Star Crossed Series really started coming into view. At the beginning there was just one story, Just Beyond Daybreak, but then that morphed and Meredith and Malcolm took on a life of their own. These two have taken me on a trip through magical awesomeness and it's still going.

Warning: Spoilers

At the end of Witching Hour Madness Malcolm popped the question and I cried. Tear drops splattering on the keys. All along I knew this was going to happen and pushed all the stories to this beautiful hectic moment and I still cried.

Now the wedding. Knot in Destiny is the fifth and final novella in the Star Crossed Series. It'll be releasing in Jan 2020 and I'm thinking about throwing a party. These characters have been put through hell and they've put me through the ringer. As ready as I am to move on to new characters I'm sad to see it end.

There is at least one short story I'm tinkering with as a side story. Meredith and Malcolm will not have the leading rolls in this story, but it's exciting to peek in on their married life. I can't wait to see what it has in store for me.

That's the update. Now for the buy it links!
