Haunted by Magic Diaries:
Real life unexplainable events from the authors."As a child, up until I was maybe 12 years old, at night someone would scream in my ear, then punch my back. It happened maybe once a week, maybe less, but it was often. The scream would wake me, the punch never left bruises, but it definitely scared me!" - Julie Morgan More information about Julie can be found here: http://juliemorganbooks.com/ Julie is the author of Deadly Alchemy. Winner 2015 sexiest steampunk book award Vampires. Werewolves. An unlikely love story. How do you choose who lives and who dies? Alchemist Amelia Rimos has just discovered the cure for the Undead. Being naïve and vulnerable, she does not realize the Undead have their targets set on her. Happening upon a tall, dark, exotic man named Michel Gauthier, he saves her from becoming a victim, thrusting her into a game of cat and mouse. Amelia realizes being an Alchemist is not in her best interest when she befriends him. Is Michel as sincere as he seems or does he have an ulterior motive? When her life cannot be more complicated, John Hawthorne interjects himself into Amelia's life and shifts it completely upside down. He informs Amelia she has the key to their survival. Soon, she will realize the Undead are not the only monsters in the world… Amelia will find herself in a desperate stalemate. She will be forced to choose between destroying her evidence and saving the man she’s grown to love or destroying over half the population of the world, including the love of her life with it. Note: Deadly Alchemy will only be in version 1. Version 2 will contain a short story that will be a prequel to Deadly Alchemy.

Anywho, my events and travels for 2016 have come to an end. My visit to Venice and Paris have created a new story I'm co-writing with the amazing Cait Reynolds. Look for it soon in a box set with Rebecca Hamilton and others, titled, Blood Fortune.
Last weekend I attended Beach Babe Book Blast in Tampa. A few weeks before that, Shameless Book Con. I came away with new friends and fascinating stories! How fascinating you ask? Well, let me tell you!
I picked up books and swag to giveaway to readers! Oh yes! I love my readers! So if you want in, comment on this post!
As for the new books, 2017 will be pumped FULL of new stories coming from me! I have two stories coming immediately at the first of the year.
Speaking of busy, check out the events I'll be at next year. I now have five on my plate! I hope to see you at one or more of them! Click here to check it out!
That's all from me for now. Keep reading and please remember to leave reviews. They help us out tremendously!
Let me be the first to tell you, if you haven't experienced Venice or Paris, please consider doing so!
I just returned home from a trip of a lifetime! What sold me on this experience was the ability to actually ride on the Orient Express!!! Venice and Paris were second in comparison!
We flew out of Orlando, Fl Saturday afternoon and arrived in Venice 9 am Sunday morning. Jet lag? Nah... mostly we slept on the plane. The hotel recommended we stay awake during the first day and to sleep that night to avoid possible jet lag. It worked! Oh and in case I do not mention it later, Merrits Travel was with us and they are truly, without a doubt, an amazing company!
So Sunday, we basically checked in and had the afternoon and evening to ourselves. My husband, John, and I ventured to St Mark's island. OMG was it amazing! We ate at the Florian! If you have not heard of this place (it's okay, I hadn't either) it is the second oldest restaurant in Venice/St Mark's! We ate outside on a white linen table while an orchestra played. AMAZING! I had this delish queshe followed by a chocolate cake. John had a chilled chocolate pie. His was much better and I threatened to steal it! LOL! The rest of the afternoon into the evening was spent walking the square. It was a rough terrain and included many bridges, which we found out were equivalent to our blocks (we have blocks, they have bridges). Oh, and daily, Venice is sinking. There is a plan in place with their government but they have yet to start the upgrades.
Monday we did an excursion of St Mark's square with a tour guide. I highly recommend this. We ventured over the Bridge of Sighs. As romantic as some people assume this bridge is, it is truly not. This bridge connects the Doge's (pronounced DO-ja) house to the prison.
The Doge's palace was remarkable! We also toured St Mark's church. Some claim St Mark is the protector of the island. Well maybe it is now, but it wasn't always the case. A few of the Venician's went over to where St Mark was buried and stole him! They brought his remains to Venice and buried him, renaming the island St Mark's. His remains are still buried there to this day. You'll also see lions with wings, which serve as the protector image of the island.
Crossing over the bridge of sighs took us to the prison. It was still used up till after WWI. That's roughly around 1920. We toured the prison and took a few pictures. There's no windows, no bathrooms, nothing. Just holes in the walls to pass food. Imagine living in something like this... It made me shutter while walking through it.
Tuesday our ventures took us to Murano and Burano. This had to be my favorite part of Venice!
Murano, known for its glass blowing, did not disappoint! We were able to attend a glass blowing demonstration, then toured the shops. We bought a few pieces of jewelry and some trinkets for John's office. Next, we traveled to Burano. I LOVED this village! The homes have many colors! Each color represents how many families live there. So a three room home could hold up to three families, thus, three different colors. Known for its lace making, we toured a small shop and watched lace being made. I ventured up to another two floors of the shop and looked around. One of the sales ladies followed me and we got to talking.
I asked her what the significance of the masks in Venice meant. I had heard it was a big tradition, but what did it truly mean?
She told me the week before [Lent] they celebrate Carnavales (Carnaval). So 2017 it will be February 25-28. Do you recall the legendary Casanova? According to this woman, Casanova started the tradition of the mask wearing. He appeared at a ball wearing a mask and refused to remove it. He danced with many women and had his ways with a few of them (per legend). He continued this year after year and the tradition was picked up by other men. They would wear masks and visit the brothels. Eventually, women began wearing these masks (remember Eyes Wide Shut?). So there you have it, the reason for the masks. Oh... and yes, this has triggered a NEW story! I bought a mask from this store that is egg shell white, with white lace, and beautiful white feathers. I'll take pictures to show you soon! I also purchased a black lace fan. I can see these two beauties come together as a possible book cover!
Eventually, our trip to Venice did come to an end, but the trip was far from over! We then found our way to the Orient Express!!!
We set off from Venice and traveled through five other countries: Italy, Austria, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Germany and landing us in France! It was an amazing journey! If you are able to book yourself a train ride, you MUST consider this train! Smooth ride, fabulous employees, and doing an overnight stay is a MUST!!! This was a bucket list item and I'm so thankful I was able to do it!
Once we arrived in France, we were escorted to our hotel...no scratch that... PALACE! Yes! Hotel Le Meurice had been classified a Palace! THE HOTEL WAS RIDICULOUS IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE!!
Our first day there, we drove all around. Saw the Moulon Rouge, stopped at the Eiffel Tower and saw many other destinations.
I took pictures of statues that included King Louis XIV (more on him later) and Joan of Arc.
We did a walking tour of Paris and OUCH!!! It was a LONG days travel! Did I mention we walked around 6.5 miles a day? Yeah... sore feet!
One of my favorite stops was the Palace of Versailles. King Louis XIV to be precise. His palace was something I never thought I would get to see in my lifetime. Truly an amazing sight! We were able to venture to the maze gardens and witness the water gardens come to life (first picture)! These are rumored to be holy water and have been told to bring about healings. I did not venture close enough to find out myself, but managed to take amazing pictures (to come soon!) We also were able to learn about the living estate for Marie Antoinette, but not able to venture to it. Below is a picture of her estate (picture 2).
The Palace of Versailles took me back to the stories of Henry XIV with his blue stocks and red heeled shoes. Did you know the Louis Boitton shoes were red bottoms were inspired by the King? If not, now you know!
Next, we ventured to the Lourve and viewed the Mona Lisa. It was truly remarkable seeing her painting in the flesh! It was protected behind glass. Did you know DiVinchi had other works of art as well? He had quite a collection and I found it odd so many patrons passed these by. They were just as beautiful as his Mona Lisa.
The Lourve, it would be impossible to visit the entire museum in ONE DAY. I mean, it is almost as large as Versailles! We were not able to venture to the other museum due to lack of time.
Eventually, the trip came to an end. We flew home Sunday and we were so happy to be here! We missed our kiddo terribly.
As stated above, more pictures to come soon! I was able to go live using Facebook time to time and I hope you enjoyed the adventure with me! It was fun to do!
Till next time please keep reading and leaving reviews. Pictures soon!!!
Who doesn't love the smell of a new book? The glue on the spine. The fresh pages. The euphoric aroma of getting lost in a story?
Let's not even get started with older books!
My point here is, online parties. I'm doing them, as well as in person! 2017 my calendar is beginning to fill up! I hope to see you at one of these fantastic events! Click here to check it out!
I'm going to begin to phase out some of my older books and bring more stock of my newer stuff. I'll let you know for sure when that begins to happen.
As far as parties, how often do you attend online parties? Do you participate? Do you get your winnings? If it's an ebook, do you read it and leave reviews? I love having the parties, but I've come to find, more often than not, people who win ebooks are not reading them. Why? It's a free ebook to you. All we ask if for you to leave a review. Consider letting the author know you'd like to send the book to a friend if there's no intention of reading. No offense will be taken; consider this, a new to us reader! Seriously, we'd love that. Sometimes life keeps us busy from reading (trust me, i get it). So read that book and leave a review. Referrals are a GREAT way to show appreciation!
NEW BOOKS ARE COMING! NEW BOOKS ARE COMING! NEW BOOKS ARE COMING!
Okay so yes, new books are INDEED coming soon! I'm working on The Power Here, the sequel to Symphony of Night (spin off of Chronicles of the Fallen series). I'm about 3k words in right now and knowing me, I'll go back and rewrite the first chapter three to four times before I'm happy with it. HA!
I'm also going to be working on book three in the Special Ops series, Ranger, and four, Seal, soon after The Power Here is completed.
Some have asked if Marianne and I will do a sequel to Dragon Master. We'd definitely love to, so let's get those ebook sales going! We would love to tell you more about Lanxston, Sebastian, Jamie's sister... oh yes, let's do this! Get Dragon Master today!
Events, events and MORE events! As 2016 is coming to an end for me, I have one more event left on the books, Beach Babe Book Blast! It's in Tampa and I hope to see you there! I had a great time with the group last year and am looking forward to a fantastic time again this year! Contact me about ticket information and I'll see you there!
Make sure to read to the bottom! I have some new book news to share!!!
Humans already wants us out of their realm. If the stone falls into the wrong hands, all hell will break loose. Samuel, the first of the Fallen, wants the stone and plans on using it to his advantage. When chaos erupts, the humans will find justification for their fears, and the supernatural will be forced to fight back.
My allies are few, and my enemies great. Will I be able to stop Samuel and save the world, or will we be lost along with the humans?
AND NOW... THE NEW NEWS!
The sequel to Symphony of Night is underway! The title, The Power Here, will bring Kai back into the story (you met him in SoN) and introduce you to two new characters; Felix and Angelica.
Kai, the resident Oni Demon, is recovering from the heartbreak of losing Jac. She left with Rowan on her new adventure to Valhalla in Symphony of Night. Kai, now on his own, is getting ready for another battle he didn't see coming.
Felix, the badass motorcycle club were-panther, is determined to bring Kai out of his slump and get him laid! Or die trying (LOL!)
Angelica, the seductress banshee has crushed on Felix from afar and recently friended Kai.
When tragedy strikes Felix, it is up to Kai and Angelica to bring him back to civilization without losing themselves in the process. When Angelica embraces her power, the strength of it scares her so much, she feels as if she's going to lose herself to the darkness. That is until an unlikely ally finds her way back to the trio.
Along the way, Alex and Lisa (remember them from Chronicles of the Fallen?) will make an appearance! I'm so excited to write for these two again!
So who's ready for The Power Here??? If you haven't read Symphony of Night yet, now's your chance (link above)!
