Title: Mercy
Author: Misty Provencher
Genre: Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Fantasy


Blurb:
My will to survive is the first thing to drown.
I know, because I hold it under myself.

After facing severe tragedy in life, Madeline assumes her death will be easy.
But the angels do not come to take her to Heaven.
Instead, what retrieves her is something she never expected: a gargoyle.

Delivered to Truce, the King of the Gargoyles, Madeline now has choices she never wanted. She has the ability to take over the entire Gargoyle Kingdom, if she is willing to kill the king. However, looking to prevent takeover, Truce transforms Madeline, thereby granting her the ability to achieve the thing she wants most—death—if she can just find the human recipient for the Gargoyle Gift that she now has to give. It should be easy.

But lives, whether they are lived or not, are seldom simple, and Madeline’s past still stands in her way. Now, only a voyeur in the life of The Boy with the Golden Rod Voice, Madeline’s must reconcile her own life and death, if she ever hopes to have free reign of her soul.

EXCERPT

The feeling of his mouth on mine made me lightheaded in the best of ways. In an effort to stay afloat, my hands gripped on to his vest, pulling him closer. I admit I was more than a little bit disappointed when my movement caused him to pull away.

My chest heaved as I tried to regain my breathing. He leaned his forehead against mine, his own breath coming out in pants. At least I wasn’t the only one affected.

“What was that for?”

A crackling sound broke our little moment up and Chess took a step back. The billowing fog from the forest leaked in under the wardrobe door. All thoughts of Chess’s kiss fled my mind as terror began to overwhelm me. I didn’t want to know what lie behind that door.

“You need to go now, Kat.” He ushered me to the mirror before turning back to the door.

“Wait!” I tugged on his arm. “What about you?”

“Who me?” Chess gave a coy smile that didn’t reach his heated eyes. “I’m just a cat.”

“Are you mad? Come with us!” My voice became desperate as the door banged open and then there was silence.

The light from the bedroom was gone. Inside the door lay only darkness. It was the kind of darkness you were afraid to look into for fear of someone looking back. I knew I didn’t want that darkness to be looking at me.

Chess turned to me once again, brushing his lips against my ear. My eyes were focused so much on the approaching darkness that I almost didn’t hear what he said. I frowned in confusion, but before I could question him he shoved me through the mirror’s surface.

The Tales of Ollundra Anthology

bc604c233292c7d9bf1a8a81b0d3192a_original

I met one of the authors, Craig Teal recently through a Facebook group we both belong to.  We started talking about another project he is planning that I hope to be part of in the future. I found out about this awesome project and how much work and dedication all the authors have put into it.

The Tales of Ollundra Anthology are stories based around the universe featured in Composite Studios upcoming table top game The Chronicles of Ollundra. It gives readers a look at the world and introduces key characters and themes that will be later developed into the game.

The series is set in a fantasy world like most RPGs and has the all things that players love about a fantasy RPG.

Each story is written by a different author and follows the different characters like Angweneth the Ranger.

The team also intends to create an audio book to partner with the Anthology novel. The kickstarter campaign started on July 6 , 2016.

From the samples I’ve seen on the campaign page I’m getting really excited about the project. I wish them all the luck in the world with the project.

#IWSG: Updates, Updates, Updates….

 

Insecure Writers Support Group Badge

Thanks to Alex for hosting this each month. Here is the complete list of participants.

The last couple of months have certainly been interesting for me. In May I became a freelance editor for a small upcoming publishing company called The Dragon’s Rocketship Publishing. I’m having lots of fun helping other authors with their books. The first book I’ve edited for the company should be out  in the near future. Will share more about the book when I can. I’m also hosting a blog tour for Virtual Fantasy Con in the next couple of months. I’ve learned one thing and that’s how hard people who put together these tours work behind the scenes getting things put together. I definitely have a new respect for them.

Now for other updates. My short story Town Curse is going to become a full length novel. I’m working on the outline now for it. I’m also creating new outlines for my other stories/series. The story for the game is coming along as well.

Future plans I have for the site are going to start showing up soon. My plan is to start series of posts about topics that have a common theme to them like there might be a series of posts about the fantasy genre and writing fantasy, writing paranormal stories, and about writing stories for a game among other topics that have to do with publishing, writing, and editing.:)

That’s it for now. Look forward to your comments.:)
