It Is Time!

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.

Eighteen years later, despite Simon’s best efforts to raise his son, there are serious issues. In fact, Mikal has absolutely no sense of right or wrong, nor any sense of pleasure or pain. He’s a true sociopath in every sense of the word. To Simon’s dismay, Mikal leaves home on a murderous rampage.

Vampires still rule!

Crimson KissSee what all the excitement is about!

Meghann O’Neil is an expert in abusive relationships. She knows exactly how her clients feel. She has also been seduced into a relationship of pleasure and pain, excitement and torture. Unlike her clients, her lover turned her into a immortal creature of the night, a vampire.

Handsome, dashing, and sophisticated Simon Baldevar claimed to love her body and soul. He enslaved her in an endless cycle of passion and punishment, caresses and cruelty. A dark soul of shifting moods, he seduced her, dominated her, and damned her with nocturnal immortally. Over thirty years ago, Meghann finally freed herself by staking him out on a roof for the dawn to finish off.

Not only did he survive, Simon is back and murdering the people Meghann has sworn to help. This time, Meghann has no intention of bending to his sadistic will. This time, Simon will find that his former servant is now a master in her own right!

Isabelle Baldevar – An ancient enemy returns!

crevxlgLord Simon Baldevar knew that vampires would walk in daylight once the offspring of two vampires was born. A child whose intermingled blood was excised of the weaknesses that kept the immortals ensnared in darkness. Determined to see sunlight again and heedless of the consequences, Simon forced his unwilling consort, Meghann O’Neill, to conceive his progeny.

Now, Meghann lies completely at Lord Baldevar’s mercy trapped in a coma brought on by premature labor. One man is determined to save Meghann and her child if it survives, her former lover and recently transformed vampire, Jimmy Delacroix. Jimmy knows his newfound immortality is no match for Simon’s centuries-honed strength, but vows to help Meghann. His only allies are the ghost of a vampire monk and a paranormal investigator, Harper Lupeni.

Ms. Lupeni has no idea her newest client is a vampire or how much danger she is truly in. Soon, Jimmy and Harper will discover she has her own long buried, terrifying link to Lord Simon Baldevar, his ancient enemy, Isabelle.

Meghann O’Neill – A psychologist, vampire, and mother of the legendary living Philosopher’s Stone!

Crimson NightMeghann O’Neill once dreamed of having a child, but that was a long time ago. It was before she had been seduced into a relationship of pleasure and pain, excitement and torture. It was before she had been transformed into a vampire by Lord Simon Baldevar, the cruel sadistic creature that made her cater to his every dark whim and desire. It was before she managed to escape Simon’s clutches leaving him staked out for dead. It was before he returned forty years later to exact his revenge by killing Meghann’s mentor and kidnapping her human lover. It was before Simon held Meghann captive for one fateful night and forced her to conceive his child.

Now, Meghann is on the run not only from Simon, but any vampire that finds out she’s conceived the living Philosopher’s Stone. For centuries, vampires have believed the bred offspring of two vampires will not only enjoy eternal life, but have the ability to walk in daylight.

Meghann, determined to fight to the death, will let no one take her baby from her-especially its treacherous, dangerous father.
