Excerpt

“You’re awake?” He sounded more than a little surprised.

“I’m not really sure the state I’m in qualifies as awake.”

“Here I was, terrified to poke the dragon, and you’re already drinking coffee and talking in complete sentences.”

I snorted and took a sip of the aforementioned liquid gold. “Are you always like this in the morning?”

“If you’d let me sleep over you’d already know the answer to that question. Why aren’t you asleep?”

In general or just tonight, I silently wondered. “Bad dream. I’ve been tossing and turning all night. I finally gave in and got out of bed.”

Papers rustled in the background and when he spoke again, his voice was lower, intimate.”You want to talk about it?”

“Something tells me my nightmares are the least of our problems.”

“You have no idea. I need you to come down to my office.”

I sighed. “Can it at least wait until after sunrise?”

“Would I be breaking the no phone calls before noon policy if it could wait?”

“There really is no rest for the wicked, is there?”

He laughed and the sound warmed me more than a hundred cups of coffee. “Apparently not, in your case. Now, there’s a dirty chai latte and a croissant for you if you’re here before Amalie. I can’t promise real coffee and pastries will survive beyond five minutes of her arrival.”

“It’s four-thirty in the morning, Mas. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll make sure at least one dirty chai and croissant remain unmolested.”

“I’ll see you soon.” He was laughing as he hung up the phone.

Three hours ago I’d practically crawled through the doorway, exhausted from cleaning up after a newbie vamp who’d broken the Jus Sanguinis Intergentes when she killed her donor. The blood pact between people and vampires had a clear no killing, no exceptions clause.

It was up to the maker to ensure their child was ready to feed unsupervised. If something went wrong and the Council found out about it, we cleaned up the mess and the sire was subject to heavy fines and possible revocation of their rights to expand their blood lines. She’d been quite literally a bitch to track and take down.

It had been a long night and it was shaping up to be an even longer day.

I wasted little time getting dressed, opting for a slip on black jersey dress, eighteen hole Docs and a leather jacket. Jewelry was a hindrance in my line of work. My meeting with Mason could easily turn into a run. Choked with my own chain? No, thank you. Unclasping the necklace, I set it in a glass dish on my bathroom counter. I ran a brush through my hair, a toothbrush over my teeth and slipped into the between. I stepped out of the alley two buildings down from the station and walked the last block and a half.

Amalie was swarmed by detectives trying to get at the goodies she brought over from the Daily Grind. She greeted me with a warm smile, shaking her head when I offered to pull her out of the fray. She had managed to endear herself to the entire department in record time. All it took was real coffee and fresh pastries. I pointed to Mason’s office. She’d make her way over once the starving masses had their fill.

Mason was so engrossed in the file on his desk he didn’t hear me come in. He looked as tired as I felt – too many double shifts. Despite an uptick in activity, SPTF was short staffed due to budget cuts. Without enough man power to staff the shifts properly overtime was mandatory.

“Is that for me?” I pointed at the to-go cup and white paper bag on his desk.

He finally looked up and gave me a smile which lit up his whole face. “As promised.”

I stole a quick kiss, grabbed the coffee and croissant, and settled in the chair across from him. I took a long sip of my latte, savoring the delicious mix of tea and espresso. “Man, I needed this. Is that the case you’re working on?”

“Yeah, we’ve got a real problem on our hands.”

“Don’t we always.” I tried to peak at the file.

Mason closed the manila folder. “I’d rather wait until everyone is here.”

“Who else is coming besides Amalie?” My curiosity was definitely peaked now. I reached across his desk, hoping to grab the file.

“You look exhausted. Tell me about your dream while we wait.”

I narrowed my eyes and glared at him. “I see this for the obvious distraction it is but you’re right.” Sighing, I rubbed my temple.“However, I’m exhausted, too exhausted to argue. So I’ll tell you. Prepare to be confounded.”

He listened intently as I filled him in on the nightly visits from the weathered old woman who washed my clothes and hauntingly called my name. I expected him to laugh and tell me it was just a dream, that I had nothing to worry about.

I didn’t expect him to look so stricken.

“Bean Nighe.” He all but whispered the name.

“You’ve heard of her?”

“Of course I’ve heard of her. How long has she been coming to you?”

I stared at him curiously. “A few weeks. Why?”

“A few weeks and this is the first I’m hearing of it?” He closed his eyes and took a deep breath, obviously struggling to control his temper.“We talked about this. No holding things back, remember?”

“I thought it was just a dream.” I shrugged.“Honestly, I didn’t think it was a big deal.”

“It was a big enough deal for you to research it.” Agitation rolled off him in waves.

When I agreed to give this thing with Mason a chance I also agreed to some conditions. No more flying solo, no more rash decisions or rushing off to play the hero. We were a team, in everything. This was just one of many set-backs.

“I got curious, did a little digging. Until tonight, everything I found pointed to deep seated family issues, particularly with a mother figure. I’ve told you about my childhood, does that dream analysis surprise you?”

His growl told me he wasn’t in the mood for reasonable—at least to me—explanations. “When did you discover the true meaning of the dream? How long have you known about the Bean Nighe?”

“Tonight. This morning. Before you called me.” I held up a hand to stop the tongue lashing I knew he wanted to give me. “I would have told you. I got the impression on the phone there were more pressing matters than my insomnia.”

“Is this why you won’t let me stay at your place?” His gaze roamed over my face, searching.“Why you never stay at mine?”

“Is that the real reason why you’re so upset?” I arched my brows. “Because we’re not having sleepovers?”

“I stayed at your lovely apartment the first night we met.”

I turned to watch Aidan glide into the room, stopping behind my chair. Rolling my eyes, I snorted and muttered, “In the closet.”

Mason’s jaw twitched but he didn’t take the bait. “Aidan.”

“It’s almost sunrise. Shouldn’t you be hunkered down for the day?” I sighed, wondering what he was doing here. I was too tired to deal with Aidan and Mason and their combined testoserone.

Putting the three of us in a room together was like throwing lit matches at sticks of dynamite – eventually one of them will explode.

Author Biography

51BHkOj-iSL._UX250_

Rachel Rawlings was born and raised in the Baltimore Metropolitan area. Her family, originally from Rhode Island, spent summers in New England sparking her fascination with Salem, MA. She has been writing fictional stories and poems since middle school, but it wasn’t until 2009 ago that she found the inspiration to create her heroine Maurin Kincaide and complete her first full length novel, The Morrigna.

When she isn’t writing, Rachel can often be found with her nose buried in a good book. An avid reader of Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Horror and Steampunk herself, Rachel founded Hallowread- an interactive convention for both authors and fans of those genres.

She still lives in Maryland with her husband and three children.

Author QandA

Q. When and why did you begin writing? What inspired you to write your first book?

A. This is a little known fact about me- the inspiration part. I’d dabbled in writing every since middle school, poems and incomplete stories mostly. Even then I was passionately in love with reading and deep down wanted to write. Life happens and then marriage and three children- I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world. Flash forward to 2009. I was working the night shift and reading a very popular author. Thirteen books into her series I had become increasingly frustrated with the author’s vision. sure i understood it was her world, her story to tell but I kept thinking ‘if it were me, I’d write it like this’. And then I did. I’d email my best friend and the only other member of my book club, a chapter at a time until the book was finished.

Q. What book(s) / author(s) have influenced your life and writing?

A. Some of the most influential authors in my life were Anne Rice- my personal hero, Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe and Tolkein. And books, there’s so many…. To Kill a Mockingbird, Little Women, Treasure Island, The Most Dangerous Game (actually a short story) and of course the The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

Q. Tell us about your characters and how they came to be? Have they been in your head for a long time?

A. Maurin had been bouncing around in my head for a while. She’s the no nonsense, bad ass heroine I like to think I am, lol! She’s a work in progress, trying to grow and find herself in a world that is ever changing, much like ours but with a slew of immortals and supernatural creatures. The men have a tendency to creep up on me. I think I’m writing a secondary character and then end up demanding more face time. Cash earned himself a novella that way.

Q. What motivates you to write?

A. I write because I enjoy it. It’s not easy, the words don’t always flow. Some days the word count is negative because I back out more than I keep but I have stories I want to tell and can’t ignore. I’m working on two at the same time- a first for me- with two more openings written. My to be written pile has waged a war with my to be read pile. It just may win. For me, it’s a love of the written word, I love words, love to write, I need to write. it’s not about the fame or fortune- though that would be an added bonus- just knowing someone read and enjoyed what I wrote is the real payoff.

Q. What is the hardest part of writing?

A. Time, carving it out every single day. I still have a family and outside priorities that I have to juggle. Writing is a very solitary thing, at least it is for me. getting over the guilt of taking time away from the ones I love to spend time in the worlds I love to create is tough.

Q. Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?

A. Writing The Morrigna reaffirmed two things for me. One- that anything is possible if you set your mind to it and you can be what ever you want to be, even a writer. And two- nothing worthwhile is easy. That might actually be three things, lol.

Q. Where do you get your ideas?

A. I don’t know where exactly sometimes like the book on my to be written pile Payable On Death was sparked b the song by Heaven Knows by Pretty Little Reckless, the name of the book came from the initials of another band P.O.D. I’m not sure what it means for the band but when I was a bank teller it meant Payable On Death. They played concurrently on 98Rock- a local radio station- and before you know it I had a character who sold her soul to the Devil at seventeen and had been fighting to make up for it ever since. They come from anywhere and everywhere.

Q. What does your family think of your writing?

A. My kids think I’m pretty rock star when they see a picture in a local paper or I’m off to another convention. My husband thinks my head is probably a scary place to live but he’s my biggest fan. I’m truly blessed to have the love and support of an amazing family.

Q. What is the best advice you would give to inspiring authors?

A. Write every day. Write one sentence, one paragraph, one chpater. Just write. Everyday. Hire an editor, it’s money well spent. do the research to find the right one. You want an editor who will challenge you, ask questions, help you fill in the gaps and remove the unnecessary words. When you find them, hold on to them.

Joann Buchanan’s Blog Tour Interview



 Joann Buchanan has stopped by the blog today for her tour of I Am Wolf! She’s answered some fun questions and shared her links. Enjoy the read and be sure to follow her via her links and on the rest of the tour! 

*Where are you from? 
I was raised in San Diego. 

*Coffee, tea or chocolate and why? 
Coffee and chocolate, because it combines two of my faves in one. Mocha Late’

*What one animal do you think fits you the most and why? 
I have to go with wolf, I’m fierce when it comes to protecting kids and I love having a big family. 


*What does reading mean to you?Reading is an escape from the every day world we live in. For a short amount of time, I get to travel to other worlds, fall in love and go on adventures. I get to solve mysteries and even make friends who love the same books as I do. 


*When and why did you begin writing? 
I was 12 when I started writing. 

*When did you first consider yourself a writer? 
It’s really odd, because I have had 2 pieces of work published through a company but it wasn’t until recently that I considered myself a writer. I was doing my Writer Tip Tues show with Jack Remick when I realized I’m a writer. See we were doing a flash exercise and I caught something that improved on the submission. At that point I thought wow, I’m a writer. Up until then, even with two pieces of work published, I considered myself just a student. In a lot of ways I still do. However, I’m also a writer and that is surreal and cool to be able to say. 

*What inspired you to write your first book? 
I was grounded to my room with only books to read that I had already read and paper to write on. I chose to write a book. It was really just something to waste time with. I didn’t know until that point that I would fall in love with writing. 

*Do you have a specific writing style?
I like to immerse my readers into the worlds I create. I like to paint a picture that they can see, taste, touch and feel everything my characters are experiencing. I think it breathes life into a story. If I have a character that bites her nails when she is nervous, I let the reader know. If there is a smell of honey suckle, then I want my readers to know it. Other than that, I just want them to have a great time learning and getting to know my characters. 

*What was your life like before becoming an author? 
Less hectic…most people don’t realize that there is a lot of work to be done after you are published. The amount of PR work that is involved in getting the word out about a novel is amazing. 

*What sparked the idea for your series? 
The wolves were inspired from a folklore I found about this warrior who was born with a wolf spirit and human spirit in him. Both sides were always fighting to get out, then one night he was needed in battle and the warrior let his wolf spirit free and won the battle. I got to thinking about that story and the simplicity of it and how it must have been for the character. Then I thought what would the consequences be if the wolf came out and bit a human. Then I asked myself, what if the whole reason for the wolf spirit was to assist in maintaining the balance of nature.

Also as lame as it sounds, I wanted to convey the message that everything has consequence and purpose and that abuse of power would lead to darkness in life. I also wanted to show the real line between good and evil in all the choices we make. If I did my job right, then I achieved that and entertained at the same time. That part is the important part of it all. The entertainment part that is. I should probably tell you that everything that happens in book 1 is important. There isn’t a single thing in there that’s just because I thought it would be cool…lol. Every event, scene and interaction is integral to the rest of the story.  

*Which comes first? 
The first word on the page. 

*What was your favorite part of the book? 
Cara’s wonderland. She is a beautiful character that has a vivid imagination and full of spirit. 

*How personal is your writing?
I think all writing is personal. I mean really when you look at it, every story we write comes from within us. We have both dark and light sides and we use those sides of us to create the worlds. We are the monster, the angel, the mom and dad, we are the everything in our books. The characters are real, because they are from us.

*What advice do you have for someone who would like to become a published writer? 
Keep learning, reading and writing. Those are the most important things you can do. 

*What is your favorite authors/books? 
Stephen King, Frank Herbert, Stephanie Meyers, David B. Coe, R.A. Salvatore. 

*If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
I would like to sit down with Stephen King. He has been in the business for so long. I would like to just listen to what he had to say about his life in the writing community. There is so much we can all learn from one another, and he has been a favorite of mine since I was a child. Between him and David B. Coe, they shaped the way I write and think about the worlds I create. I have had the opportunity to talk with David B. Coe, but I was so nervous that I messed up the interview. I will never forget his kindness though. 

*Tell us your latest news?
I’m doing my first appearance in Amarillo and Lubbock Texas on March 24th. On March 23rd, I’m going to be on the morning show on television. That is going to be a first for me. I can’t wait. Also, The Kiss, book 2 is almost ready to ship off to the editor. It’s slated to be released in June. I can’t wait to see what people think of what is going on in Sister’s Oregon and with the Tibolt’s clan.

Interview with Sheryl Steines

Please enjoy this interview with Sheryl Steines, author of the urban fantasy novel, The Day of First Sun. Then read on to learn how you can win huge prizes as part of this blog tour, including $450 in Amazon gift cards, a Kindle Fire, and 5 autographed copies of the book.

If you could travel in a time machine, would you go back to the past or into the future? 
I would go to the past, meet famous people, see history as it happened.  I’d be afraid to go to the future.  I’m not sure I really want to know when I die.

If you could jump into a book, and live in that world, which would it be? 
This might be to expected, but I would love to live at Hogwarts, stroll through Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade, play with all the magical stuff, and visit the Weasleys at their house.  I saw the Harry Potter exhibit at the museum a few years ago, and it just seemed so fun.

If a movie was made about your life, who would you want to play the lead role and why? 
Sandra Bullock.  Since she became a movie star, people all over the place tell me I look like her.  She’s also funny.  I can only imagine how much more interesting and funny my life would be if she were the lead.

When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? 
I always knew I wanted to be a writer.  There were times that I thought I wanted to be an interior decorator, but in the end, I was always much happier writing and creating.

Who are your favorite authors of all time?
I have two.  The first would be Stephen King.  I was always amazed by the detail and imagination he used in his books, especially the earliest books.  I watched him on an interview many years ago and he was talking about the things he was afraid of, one of which was sleeping with his feet outside the covers at night.  He would always cover his feet so that the monsters under the bed wouldn’t get him.  I laughed so hard because I do the same thing.  J.K. Rowling is also a favorite.  Her life story and Harry Potter reminded me that I wanted to be a writer when I was seven.  She reminded me of the genre that I loved.  It got me thinking about what stories intrigued me.  I watched her interview on Oprah and cried through the entire thing.  It got me thinking of ways to take my personal experiences and hide them in the fantasy world.

What do you do in your free time? 
I read, a lot.  In the winter, I spend time at museums and go shopping.  In the summer, I love to go to flea markets.  You could never have too many fleas.  I love to travel.  I spend most of the summer driving my 1966 Mustang convertible.

What is your guilty pleasure? 
I’m a huge fan of Ninja Warrior.  Yeah, the Japanese obstacle course.  On one side, it’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen.  On the other side of it, the obstacles are so challenging, and the participants are so revered for making it through each stage that it is a huge honor to win.

Favorite places to travel? 
I love Europe, London being my favorite city.  I’ve been to Scotland, France, Italy, Germany and Austria.  The Austrian/German Alps are some of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen.

Favorite way to spend a rainy day? 
In front of the television watching my favorite movies.  Who doesn’t love Ferris Buehler’s Day Off and Sixteen Candles.

If you could have a superpower, what would you choose? 
Telekinesis!  Then I could clean my house without actually having to do anything.

An excerpt from In Leah’s Wake: The Prologue
. . . little heart of mine, believe me, everyone is really responsible to all men for all men and for everything. I dont know how to explain it to you, but I feel it is so, painfully even. And how is it we went on living, getting angry and not knowing?

Fyodor Dostoevsky
The Grand Inquisitor

Prologue
March
Justine strikes a pose before the full-length mirror hanging on her closet door. Chin up, hands by her sides. She draws a breath. “My dear. . .” she begins, and stops mid-sentence. Wrinkles her nose. She’s got it all wrong. She’s too—Too stiff. Too grownup. Toosomething.
She rakes her fingers over her short dark hair, sweeping the bangs out of her eyes, tugs at the hem of her pink baby-doll pajamas. She’s scheduled to deliver the candidates’ address at her Confirmation Mass this afternoon. When she learned, six months ago, that she had been selected speaker, Justine was ecstatic. Now, the very idea of standing in front of the whole congregation, telling hundreds, maybe thousands, of people how she’s learned from her own family what it means to be part of God’s larger family makes her sick to her stomach.
She has no choice. She made a commitment.
She folds her hands primly, setting them at chest height on her imaginary podium, glances at her cheat sheet, rolls her lower face into a smile, and begins again. “My fellow Confirmation candidates,” she says this time. Justine crumples the paper, tosses it onto her bed. My fellow Confirmation candidates. What a dork. She sounds about twenty, instead of thirteen.
She screws up her face. “I can’t do this,” she says, wagging a finger at the girl watching her from the mirror. She would feel like a hypocrite.

Justine plods to the bathroom, pees, pads back to her bedroom. The forecasters are predicting snow, starting later today. A dismal gray stratus hangs over her skylight. Her room is dark, the air raw. Her sister’s blue and gold Cortland High sweatshirt lies in a heap at the foot of her bed. Justine pulls the sweatshirt over her head, retrieves the balled-up paper. With the back of her hand, she flattens it out, and returns to the mirror to practice.
As always, on first glance, the girl in the mirror takes Justine by surprise. She’s grown two inches since Christmas, isn’t chubby anymore, her belly flat, the clavicle bones visible now at the base of her throat. She pushes her bangs out of her pale, darkly fringed eyes. With her fingertips, she touches her cheeks. Her features have matured, her nose long and straight, like her mother’s, her cheekbones defined. She curls and uncurls her toes. She wears a size six shoe, a size and a half smaller than Leah. Her toes are long and slim, the nails painted blue.
Justine crushes the sheet of paper, tosses it in the trash, strolls to her window, raises the honeycomb shade. Spring feels a long way away, the yard empty, the trees bare. A rush of cold air streams in, under the sash. The air smells of snow. Justine presses her hand against the cool glass, the way she and her sister used to do on the windshield of their father’s car, when they were small. Stop, their father would scold. Youre making a mess. She smiles, remembering how Leah loved egging him on. She pulls her hand away from the glass, watches her prints disappear.
Justine wishes, sometimes, that she could disappear, too. Poof, just like the handprint.
Poof, just like her sister.

I have been Blogging!

Well, this is it, my first post on my first blog!  Given how much I love to read and write, I figured it was about time I started a blog. 

So, a bit about me first of all.  I’m Elizabeth and, for those of you just randomly stumbling here, am the author of Semester Aboard – the first novel in the More than Magic series.  I’m an indie author and self-published on Smashwords in August 2011. Semester Aboard is now available from Smashwords, Amazon, and a few other places.  I started looking at reviewer and author blogs and wondered why I didn’t have my own!

I intend to do a bit of blogging here about Semester Aboard and future books and such.  But I’m also going to use this blog for reviews, helping to promote other indie authors, and probably some general musings.  I am a writer, so I do tend to get a bit wordy.

If you are an indie author and would like me to review your book, do let me know!  Once I’ve got this blogger thing figured out, I’ll probably have a section somewhere specifically to talk about reviews. You may notice I also have some Amazon ads.  If you’ve got a book on Amazon, please let me know and I’d be happy to throw it into my ad rotation!

Thanks for reading!
