Here is a bit about my novel, Veiled Virtues:
When Paige Stewart left America to house-sit in England, her only thoughts were to get away from her controlling mother and to have fun. Little did she know that her working holiday would find her hearing eerie voices, experiencing alarming dreams and bleeding from old scars. Although Paige's differences confuse and disgust her, she opens up to the shopkeeper of a strange metaphysical store in town, where she finds much more than tarot cards and crystals. Soon, Paige is stalked like prized game. Relentlessly pursued, her holiday takes a turn for the eerie and dangerous. Her only saving grace may be a modern-day English knight who sweeps her off her feet and recognizes the true virtues the American teen unknowingly possesses.
Veiled Virtues is available at the following sites: Amazon OmniLit Smashwords MuseItUp Publishing Diesel Kobo BookStrand AmazonUK
Coming soon to Barnes & Noble and iTunes!!!
Excerpt from Veiled Virtues: Hearing voices is not good, right???
The mile ride into Newbury was an easy one, and I found my way to the town center. I locked up the bike and walked down Cheap Street, lined with numerous shops, restaurants, and pubs.
One store front in particular caught my eye. The sign said MAGOG’S, and the items in the window intrigued me — a display of crystals and shiny colored stones; some dragon and fairy figurines; an astrology chart; and some books. A closer look at the books revealed titles such as Paranormal Occurrences in Elizabethan England, The Attraction of Metaphysics, Extrasensory Phenomena, and Glimpses of Evil: A Guide to Demonology. I looked up at the MAGOG’S sign again and guessed it must be some kind of new-age store or something. A poster hung in the window advertising an outdoor music festival in Glastonbury. That might be fun to go to if I made any friends there.
I almost continued down the sidewalk when a man’s voice whispered, “There.” I turned to find out who said it, but no one was near me. I figured I must have been mistaken, but then the voice grew louder.
“It’s in there.”
I whirled around. No one again.
What just happened? Hearing voices isn’t normal.
The noise must have been something else because I knew I was not crazy. Determined in my normalcy, I shook off the incident and resumed my self-directed town tour of Newbury.
