It is now officially September and that means all that happy summer stuff is over. It is the start of the Halloween season my dear friends and fiends. It is now time to get serious. If we all love books and we do, it is time to make the commitment. Start supporting your writers. I know this is not my normal tone, but these are not normal times. Books are the original escapist media and this Fall needs to be time we get back to the basics. Memphis is blessed with a small number of wonderful indie bookstores and double blessed that we just got a premium indie store literally from the ashes of a lost landmark. Time to darken their doors and show them just a little love.
Ladies and gentleman, we have serious books ready to take you to the places you want to go. Let’s start with a book just right for the season. Chapter One is available for a free taste on the website.
Chalice Moon by Pat Sawtelle
Better the Vampire You Know
A seemingly random attack exposes Kimie and her best friend to a part of the world the girls never knew existed. A world where vampires and shape shifters not only exist, but are people they know. However, when another attack nearly kills Kimie, her friends must find out why some of the magical beings are after her.
Could this simple human girl be the legendary Chalice mentioned in that old tale they found? The story said the Chalice is bound to the delicate balance between the forces of good and evil. While the part of taking from evil and giving to good didn’t sound too bad to Kimie, it never said so many people would want to see her dead.
