By C.J. Beaumont
Coven of Secrets (The Bayshore Witch Legacy Book 1)
A broken witch. A missing sister. A grisly murder.
Once touched by darkness, always tainted. Roxanne Cole swore off magic for a reason. But now her little sister Kathryn has gone missing, and the only person willing to help is her pretty-boy nemesis, Ray Hammond. Roxy’s not sure she can trust him, but with nowhere else to turn, she’s forced into an uneasy alliance.
When the coven’s high priestess also goes missing, it seems her sister’s disappearance is just a small piece of a much bigger puzzle. And the more she works with Ray, the more she realizes he’s just another temptation that could add to the ever-increasing magical missing persons count.
As bodies start dropping and the death toll rises, it becomes clear someone is declaring war on the Bayshore Witches. Now, if Roxy wants her little sister back, she’ll have to decide what, and who, she’s willing to sacrifice.
If you liked Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman or Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake and Merry Gentry series, you’ll love C. J. Beaumont’s up-and-coming supernatural thriller, the Bayshore Witch Legacy series.
Note: This is book one of a slow burn paranormal romance series that must be read in order to make sense.
Hello everyone! Today we have another great spotlight for you! Brenda Hale, also known as Beverly L. Anderson, is an author that has been writing since she was 11 years old, which as she told us was back in 1991. That is quite a long time to be writing. What started her? Her grandmother. When she was eleven years old, her grandmother was in the hospital and later passed away. All during that time, Brenda wrote in a stack of notebooks that she had handy.
We asked her why she chose to become an Indie Author and she told us because she likes the control it gives her over her product. She also gets to make all of the decisions. She pointed out, which is true, that locating people that will take on brand new authors isn’t an easy task and with the publishing tools that are available nowadays, there are plenty of ways for authors to get their work out there.
For fun she likes to game: Tabletop, PC, and Console. She lives in Missouri with her two kids and their two cats, Castiel and Bobby.
When dealing with writers block, she usually switches to writing something different to break through.
We asked her how long she has been creative. She responded “I started writing in 2015, but I’ve been creative in other ways (mostly art) my whole life.”
She is one that also supports Indie authors on her Functionally Fiction blog. It features new books and book reviews. It’s fairly awesome.
We asked her how she deals with writer’s block… To be told that she doesn’t really suffer from writer’s block per se. It’s more that she has some days that she just can’t/don’t want to write. She is working on more consistent writing habits. For example, she is trying to write for an hour at least four days a week. Shek joined a group that does writing sprints four nights a week, which is helping a lot.
She has two cats… Koda and Azriel. They are obnoxious, but She loves them. We would love to see them. 👀👀
When asked what she does with her time… “Most of my time goes to reading and writing, but I also love creating spreads in my bullet journal, painting, listening to music, going to concerts, and watching movies and TV.” That sounds like a lot of creativity to us.
We also asked about what got her writing. “I started writing one day partially out of boredom and partially because a book I read didn’t go exactly how I wanted it to. I decided to write my own book so I could include anything I wanted, but I had no idea at the time that I would end up here. I only wrote academically before that and hated it. However, I have always loved reading. My love of books is really what got me where I am today. It’s why I started Functionally Fictional, which led to me becoming involved in the book community.” We are glad she did.
✨Blurb✨ A plague. A prophecy. A centuries-long curse. All her life, Princess Adalina heard tales of the legendary, immortal warriors known as the Nihryst. Cursed and bound to a deck of tarot cards by her ancestors, the Nihryst were stranded on a remote island nearly a century and a half earlier.
Her brother, Prince Shane, is destined to rule the kingdom of Detmarya. Though preparing for this role has encompassed his entire life, control of the kingdom may come sooner than expected due to their father’s sporadic behavior.
Discovering the king’s plan to set a war in motion with a mass assassination, Ada unwittingly joins a crew of pirates in search of the only beings powerful enough to stop him: the Nihryst. Meanwhile, Shane and a group of underground rebels make a haunting discovery of a plague infecting the streets of Detmarya.
With a looming deadline to save multiple kingdoms and thousands of innocent lives, both royal siblings join quests worthy of Ada’s beloved fairy tales.
I don’t mind the cold or that white stuff they call snow
What I mind is the lack of light, if it’s forty days in a row.
Something kicks in, some hibernational urge
And I find myself laying in bed
Snoring a symphonic dirge
Don’t forget! The deadline for this anthology is the 31st. First drafts are ok. We are looking for stories of 3k-5k. Topic is good /light Fae. Send submissions is word doc via email to faecorpspublishing@gmail .com
Here is another excerpt from my book “After – Rain Skies: A Million Stars’
In memory of the woman
Who screams silently
The secrets of her soul
May she rest in peace
With her lost words
And intimate beauty
Kayla would have been just a manufactured memory to her family, friends, and children, had she not taken the courage to walk away from her abusive husband.
Kayla’s husband portrayed her as the best thing on the planet to ever happen to him, that he loved and adored her, and they had the perfect family. And she was outspoken as a child, so people believed that if something was wrong, she would definitely speak up.
They were married for five years, and though he was very controlling from the moment they met, the abuse really started after she had their first baby, and her husband never left her alone…
