Hi All! I am delighted to be a part of BOOKS TO GO NOW’s Monthly party at the Goddess Fish Party Pavilion! Thank you for inviting me, BTGN!
Everyone who participates and completes the rafflecopter on my blog will be entered for a chance at a Gift Certificate for CHOCOLATE!! YUM!
And now I’m going to tell you about the trilogy, which is my Debut Release!
We all know there is someone out there for each of us, but some of us never make that connection with our intended ‘other’ and achieve the happily ever after meant for us. Imagine if we did!
Think about if we were given more than one chance - in separate lifetimes - to connect with that someone, until we finally made that Happily Ever After connection? The CONNECTIONS Trilogy is such a story!
FATED, the 1st book in the trilogy, is already out in digital and print formats at Amazon and in eBook at other digital etailers. This novella follows Valerie Baldwin, who is a barren 17th century woman, and Alecksander Stone, in their spiritual search for each other.
In this chance at their connection, he is a witch-hunter with great magical powers, and she is a suspected witch, because of empathic abilities she possesses. A little boy’s orphaned soul follows them, in search of parents.
Will the curse, which pursues them, allow their connection? Will he see her prosecuted as a witch? What will happen to the little parentless soul?
CONNED, the trilogy’s second CONNECTIONS book, is expected out in late December 2013 in both digital and print formats at the same distributors as the first.
In this second novella of the Trilogy, Valerie and Alecksander’s incarnations meet again in the American Northwest of the 19th century. This time they seem to know more about each other than they did at their first meeting in the 17th century American colonies. Neither remembers their previous lifetimes with any clarity.
In CONNED, he is an 18th century con man with supernatural abilities, and Valerie is a childless school marm who loves “her children” to a fault. She especially cares about a little boy who has no family of his own.
As in their previous co-existence, neither of the two adults trusts the other. Regardless of what her inner voice tells her about how she should feel toward Alecksander, Valerie must protect “her children” from the untrustworthy con artist in town. Alecksander too, harbors an unfamiliar warmth toward the young school marm, whom he finds quite attractive.
Will what they each sense about the other in this lifetime, be enough to foster trust between them and ensure their intended connection? What will happen to the orphaned little boy?
INFORMED is the final book in this trilogy. This novella takes place in both contemporary and medieval times. The childless contemporary Valerie still works with and cares for children, this time as a Social Service Worker. Alecksander continues to be a masterful magician who entertains the masses with his gifted skills. Their spirits still seek connection, but their mortal minds do not.
With all the knowledge gained in their subconscious minds, and with the new-age approaches that are offered to them in the modern world, Valerie and Alecksander at last learn about the curse that has followed them through time, and which causes their inexplicable unhappiness.
Through past-life regression, they embark on a search through the ages – onto the earth of the middle ages - to end the curse so they will be able to let down their defenses against each other. But the evil, which lurks in the past, is an evil far greater than Alecksander’s celebrated supernatural abilities.
In the inevitable clash which ensues between good and evil, only one will survive. Through gifts of her own, Valerie and the boy - Scotty – intrude on the medieval scene of battle between the two great wizards. Now it is three against one, but the two latter attendants possess no significant power of their own - or do they?
Will the good in Alecksander’s powers defeat the evil pitted against him for the benefit of himself and his two companions? Will they be able to defeat it as a team? Will the two adults achieve their necessary growth in the ability to trust and love each other?
Will the parentless child’s soul, who has followed them through all their lifetimes, finally find his family with them? Will they all, at last, be gifted with eternal happiness, or be destroyed at the hands of the great evil which lies in the existence of their past?
I hope you all enjoy my three book Love Story about soul-mates who are cursed to travel through time in search of their CONNECTIONS. This romantic/historical/paranormal/fantasy is sure to entertain and delight you with all its “almosts” and its thoughts of “what if.”
FATED, the first in the CONNECTIONS Trilogy is available now through Amazon (in digital and paperback), my publisher at bookstogonow.com, Barnes & Noble, and most other etailers.
