Psychic Encounter While Antique-Shopping Inspires Novel @AdriennedeWolfe


By Adrienne deWolfe

I got the idea for my Historical Romance novel, Seduced By An Angel, when I bumped into a psychic at an antique store.

She was wandering around the showroom, “touching” furniture and reporting the various scenes from the past that she psychically observed (weddings, children reading school books, couples dancing at Christmas parties, etc.)  She explained that she was learning to fine-tune her gift of “psychometry.” When she touched man-made objects, she could see their owners “through time” and peek into their lives.

I thought, “Oh my gosh, I HAVE to write a story about that!”

So in Seduced By An Angel, outlaw Jesse Quaid (who is part Cherokee,) has a dream from Great Spirit that Sera Jones can clear his name of murder. Jesse can’t imagine how a 19-year-old preacher’s daughter can help him, until he learns that Sera has visions about the future and the past.

Because Sera is terrified of her visions, Jesse has to teach her how to accept her gift before he can persuade her to help him clear his name.

Seduced By an Angel is part of my award-winning Velvet Lies Series (which is on sale.) If you like Historical Romance novels with bad-boy heroes, adorable baby animals, mischievous orphans, and a slice of Victorian America, you’ll enjoy this bestselling series. Here’s an excerpt from Seduced By An Angel.



Excerpt
Seduced By An Angel
Book 3, Velvet Lies Series
By Adrienne deWolfe

(Set-up: Sera is in a “haunted” part of the woods, where she is hiding from outlaws.  While communicating with a Native American ghost, named Hiawassee, Sera begins to have visions.)

Sera was walking behind a waterfall in a kaleidoscopic haze of color. Through the cloud of rainbows that swirled around her, she could see isolated pockets of horrific scenes: Jesse getting lynched. Or shot. Or bludgeoned.
*From any one point in time, there's a minimum of three futures,* the ghost of Jesse’s grandmother whispered in her ear. *You can stop the madness. But first, you must stop the outlaws.*
Sera felt numb. Insanely calm. She didn't doubt her visions. She didn't question Hiawassee. She merely followed the Medicine Woman's spirit as it glided before her, sweeping along a tunnel.
Flickering water reflections danced upon the walls and the roof, which was rife with orange lichens and green algae. Some 20 paces ahead, she could see the tunnel's end through the mystical, silvery glow of Hiawassee's body.
*We are forbidden to interfere,* the ghost told her.
*We?*
*All of us.*
Sera frowned and halted beside Hiawassee, squinting into the sunlight at the tunnel's end. She gaped at the scene that stretched before her. Floating in and out of the falls, perched upon the cliff ledges, swinging from the trees, and splashing in the river were hundreds of ghosts. Most of them were women and children.
Ywahoo Falls.
*Sacred Cherokee burial ground,* Hiawassee confirmed mildly.
Sera nodded uncomfortably. The legend was known to her. Some 70 years ago, Cherokee women had journeyed with their children to this spot, rendezvousing under the full moon. Under the leadership of Comblossom, daughter of the great war chief, Doublehead, hundreds of innocents had gathered here, accompanied by only a handful of braves.
The women and their children had intended to walk the 125 miles to a school in Chattanooga, where they had been promised protection and a White man's education. But the Cherokees had been betrayed. A contingent of Tennessee soldiers had intercepted the innocents at Ywahoo Falls and massacred them.
*You were barely six years old,* Hiawassee told Sera gently. *Jesse, he was eight. You were meant to find each other in that lifetime, too. And you did—for the last few minutes. He tried to protect you.*
Tears rolled down Sera's cheeks. *Why?* she whispered. *Why must there be so much hatred?*
*Men are allowed free will,* Hiawassee answered. *You, too, will choose between compassion and hatred.  Choose wisely.*

Book Description
Seduced By An Angel
By Adrienne deWolfe

Kentucky belle Seraphina Jones craves a dashing stranger worth kissing. When she spies her handsome, half-naked hired hand at the riverbank, she thinks her dreams of romance have come true. But this Texican is wanted for murder.

Jesse Quaid can't let Sera's sweet kisses distract him from rendezvousing with Cass, a childhood friend, to clear his name of a crime he didn't commit.

But then a case of mistaken identity turns Cass into Jesse's deadliest rival for Sera's heart.

Now, Sera must find a way to end the feud before the man she loves is lost forever.

#TheRedcliffeNovels - A New Novel is Growing!

Ok, so I have been a bit quiet during the summer holidays. My children have been home from school, we have been busy with family activities, catching up with friends, shopping for school uniform, and all the other stuff that goes with family life. But somehow, I found time to finish the first draft of my fifth Redcliffe novel. Hooray! Heart of the Vampire (A Redcliffe Novel) book 5 is shaping up pretty well so far, and I am very pleased with it.



But here is even more exciting news: I have the seeds of a new novel beginning to take hold. That’s right, Redcliffe book 6 is about to be written. I haven’t put anything down on paper yet. My process is to allow the story time to unfold in my mind, until it bursts out onto the page. I am hoping to save it for NaNoWriMo, and then get the first draft written in one month. But we will see what happens in other areas of my life. I don’t yet have a title, but it must be something to do with the werewolf… Do you have a suggestion?

#TheRedcliffeNovels Spin-Off: The Darkness of Love #ASMSG

If you enjoyed reading The Redcliffe Novels, perhaps you would like to see the story of our favourite bad-boy vampire Marcus Scott? He wasn’t always a suave, sexy businessman…



The Darkness of Love - A Victorian vampire lord seeks an heir for his estate in this English Gothic novel with passion and flair.


Lord Gregory Stockton is a powerful and respected businessman embracing the modern era of the Victorian industrial revolution. He has a grand and beautiful manor house complete with a repertoire of servants, and his young wife is charming, attractive, and the perfect lady to his gentleman. The only thing they lack is an heir to the family estate. Lord Gregory knows he can never produce a child, for he is a vampire, although his wife and servants know nothing of his secrets. There are other ways to provide heirs for his estate, however, and Lord Gregory has noticed the romantic attraction between his wife and the young stable hand Marcus Scott. He hatches a plan to bring the would-be lovers together, and then cruelly tear them apart as he continues to build his empire and secure his power base in the south of England. The humans are pawns in the vampire’s game of lust, love and control.

*Cover Reveal!* Mystical Circles by S.C. Skillman #ASMSG

Book Cover Reveal: New Luminarie Edition of Mystical Circles, the Prequel to A Passionate Spirit

I’m delighted to announce that I can now show you the Cover Reveal for my new Luminarie edition of Mystical Circles. It’s been a long and sometimes fraught journey with the cover designers but I’m very excited with the final result!

Read two reviews here, both from Young Adult authors:

Intense Psychological Drama in a Beautiful Setting

First of all, I fell in love with the beautiful house where the story is set, and wanted to go there immediately! Against this backdrop, a tense and intriguing psychological drama is worked out, with new twists and revelations every day. The complex and often damaged characters gathered together react and interact more often than not in ways that surprise and sometimes shock, and you are kept guessing about the outcomes of some of the relationships until the very end. This was an intense and compelling story with many twists and turns in the plot to keep you reading. (Eleanor Watkins, YA author )

Psychological Suspense That Doesn’t Disappoint

The scene is an idyllic Cotswold farmhouse, where a mixed bag of needy people live in a community. Enter journalist Juliet, seeking to save her younger sister from the clutches of what she considers a cult, with its charismatic and enigmatic leader, Craig. Like Juliet, we are drawn into the claustrophobic lives of the characters in this “Wheel of Love” and find ourselves unable to leave. As the emotional and psychological tensions crackle and ignite against each other, it’s like watching a slow-motion train crash of the conflicting personalities, desires, jealousies and hurts. If you like your drama filled with psychological suspense, with a hint of the paranormal, then you won’t be disappointed. I’m pleased to see there’s a sequel, A Passionate Spirit.  (Philip S Davies, YA author)

So without more ado here is the book cover for Mystical Circles



Blurb:
“Hi, you in crowded, stressed old London from me in the peaceful, perfect Cotswolds. Massive change of plan. I’m in love. Craig’s gorgeous, sexy, intelligent. Paradise here. Staying forever.”
Juliet, concerned that her younger sister has fallen in love with the charismatic Craig, leader of the Wheel of Love, sets off for the Cotswolds to investigate, fearful that Zoe has become entangled with a religious cult.

She arrives at Craig’s community hoping to rescue Zoe. But intrigues, liaisons and relationships flare and flourish or fizzle out quickly within this close circle, and despite her reservations, Juliet is drawn into the Wheel of Love… with completely unforeseen consequences.
The new Luminarie edition of Mystical Circles is available as from 5 September 2017. It will be available online and in all good bookstores.

And I am doing a special promotion for a limited period for UK readers of my blog SC Skillman Author. Copies of the paperback can be pre-ordered direct from me via the Contact Me section of my blog, at 20% discount from the RRP of £8.99, and free of p& p. There will be 10 copies of the book available through this promotion to the first 10 purchasers, and all I ask is that you post your review on Amazon as soon as you’ve read the book!

The Nefarious Series by Lucille Moncrief #ASMSG @moncriefelle

Nefarious Volume One is permafree on Instafreebie. It is an erotic horror short story. Custom illustrated.


Blurb:

Set in a steampunk Savannah, Georgia, Nefarious weaves a tale of intrigue, hidden desires, and devious intentions.

Talcott Henderson wants to live again.

A centuries-old vampire, he longs to destroy his maker and become human once more. In order to do so, he must turn another. While he sets his sights on Elyse Delafayette, Samuel Quartermaine sets his on Talcott. Will Talcott succeed in convincing Elyse to join the ranks of the undead before Samuel can stop him?

"Is this how the fox feels when he confronts the tender rabbit? Or the osprey when he swoops in for a kill so calculated and unfair? My fingertips tingled in delight."

***This is dark erotica, so mature audiences only, please. ***

Nefarious Volume Two: Honor the Suffering is historical fiction/horror novelette. It is on Amazon, enrolled in KU. I also have a free preview of it on Instafreebie.



Blurb:

Is eternal guilt the price of human empathy?

While the bombs rain overhead, Talcott Henderson and a group of fellow soldiers huddle in the cratered ground beneath the German front lines. Through the never-ending din of enemy fire, the voracious, blood-soaked machine of war haunts Talcott. Memories claw at him; kill or be killed, eat or be eaten. In the bowels of the earth a specter appears, and offers him an eternal life free of guilt.

But what is the cost of an unmarred soul?

*Includes custom illustrations
*Cover art by Jessica Dueck

Nefarious Volume Three is scheduled for release August 18.

Interested parties can find snippets, information and links to when it is published, as well as information on where readers can participate in a giveaway to win a free copy and an Amazon Fire 7 tablet on my blog at www.moncriefs.net.



Here is the blurb:

Can evil consume innocence?

Can the one who walks the line between both it?

Elyse Delafayette, innocent yet darkly cynical, continues a naive flirtation with evil incarnate. Although goodness pursues her, she rebukes him. Although he seems sincere, she fears he is not.

Samuel Quartermaine, embodying darkness and light, races against time to save her from the clutches of the undead.

Will she let him love her?

The third installment of the Nefarious series, The World is Our Exile is a paranormal erotic romance novella set in a steampunk Savannah, Georgia. If you love sarcastic heroines, brooding, secretive heroes, and exploring the stark contrast between good and evil, you will love this story.

In Defense of the Struggle That’s Real For Authors @moncriefelle #ASMSG #amwriting

Hey, you, the pale one, bags under your eyes that could rival a blue light special, crumbs on your chest and a crick in your neck from hunching over a keyboard. Do your eyes feel like sandpaper yet? For a sedentary job, it sure hurts. Seen the sun lately? Friends stopped calling long ago. 
#Thestruggleisreal.


That’s what this is, and most people don’t want to do it because it comes dressed in ripped and stained yoga pants and looks a hell of a lot like work.
Maybe you are lucky. Your loved ones are supportive. Even then, it’s a lonely road—a long hard slog into a winter night without a coat. Or maybe you are like me, with a masochistic streak as deep as the scars on my inner wrists, and this is like coming home.
So, for those of you who’ve chosen the narrow path, the authorpreneurial road less traveled, a few words of advice and encouragement:

1.       Attitude

The first thing you need to fix is your attitude. Life isn’t fair. Do you understand? Life isn’t fair. Bad things happen to good people, good things happen to bad people, and there is a whole lot of neutral in between. The fickle finger of fate points to all. You can’t control ANYTHING in life except your ATTITUDE.

What you must do, is work hard, take risks, and keep at it. This will build your confidence, and you must, you absolutely must reward yourself for doing this REGARDLESS of the outcome. In many instances, the outcome is beyond your control. I would be remiss to not state that there are certain things you can do, of course, to affect a positive outcome. But as they say, sh*t happens. Your attitude is the only thing you can control.

So, when the friends quit calling, the family doesn’t want to read your work, you get a one-star review, your attitude and your confidence will shield you and give you the strength to keep working.


2.     Be prolific

You need to set a goal—a wordcount, page, or chapter count per day and stick to it. This will become a habit. Habits are hard to break. Start small. It’s like putting a pebble in a bucket of water. Eventually you will get enough pebbles to create spillover. Don’t worry if it is ‘not good enough’ or worse, utter dross. The point is to play a numbers game and play it well. You do that by being prolific. You do this way before you start editing, and before you start researching and honing your craft. You have to have a lump of clay to work with in order to make a vase.


3.       Learn

Research, take workshops, read and read and read everyone more talented and more knowledgeable than you. Join writing groups, online or in person, and learn from those who have had some success at this game. Keep your mouth shut and check your ego at the door. Pay attention, be a sponge and then go implement the things you’ve learned into your own work.

4.       Many roads lead to Rome

They’re dark, ridden with potholes, unsavory bandits, covered in brambles, but they are legion. There are many ways to do this job. Enroll in KU or go wide . . . there is no hard answer here. You have to do what is best for you and what is going to work for your specific book(s).

Don’t get roped in by “rules” that aren’t really rules. Most rules are more like “guidelines.” Again, if you protect your attitude, hone your craft, and are prolific, you’ll find success. It can happen overnight, it can more likely take years, but it does happen if you don’t give up.



5.       Ditch your ‘friends’

Yeah, I said it. You’re trying to build something here, and the most important element of that is your attitude. It’s nigh on impossible to keep your attitude in check if you hear a lot of naysaying. Anyone who doesn’t support you that you aren’t forced to live with, you need to cut down on your time with that person. Or better yet, wipe the slate clean and get some new friends. There are seven billion people on the planet, and a lot of them are supportive. Go hang out with them.

Good luck, stay warm out there, and happy writing.
