Jacket copy & update on The Solstice Countdown

Uncategorized Add comments


The manuscript is now with my copy editor, and I expect to get her suggestions and corrections by the end of this week. It’ll take me approximately another week to make the changes, then the book will be finished and ready to go into layout. Yay! I’m still working to release the book for sale by the end of the month, but it’ll definitely be out by the first week or two of March.

And no, it’s not available for preorder yet. I have to have the final, formatted manuscript to do that.

The cover art is done, and the title and other copy are being put in place. As soon as it’s finished, I’ll send out another newsletter and post it on my blog and social media accounts – Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

But in the meantime, here’s the back jacket copy for your reading enjoyment:          

As an agent of Supernatural Protection & Investigations (SPI), I know that evil doesn’t take a vacation, but this time it made an exception and followed me on mine.

I’m Makenna Fraser, seer for SPI, and I’m taking my boyfriend, goblin dark mage Rake Danescu, home for the holidays to meet my family.  

Weird Sisters is a small town in the North Carolina mountains that was built on a network of ley lines that magnify psychic and paranormal energies. It doesn’t show up on Google Maps, was named after the three witches in Macbeth, and the first word of the town name perfectly describes most of its human and supernatural citizens.

            A stranger has come to town, bringing with him a dormant source of primordial evil. Soon, magically gifted locals start vanishing, and the power of the ley lines is turned against us, cutting us off from the outside world and any source of help.   

For a town and its people steeped in magic, and my family sworn to protect both, it’s a race against time to use a local winter solstice phenomenon to free the town from its prison. But first, I must trust a father I’ve never known to fight and defeat an awakening evil that’s existed since the beginning of time. If we fail, and it is unleashed, the world will not survive.
