A little Gothic--er, fun--now available at all venues.

For those of you who don't have Kindles, and might be waiting for something new from me, I'm pleased to announce my Gothic, horror-y short story, Sing A Mournful Melody, is now available at Smashwords. It should be filtering through to their various venues (Itunes, etc) shortly. If you have been waiting and would like to read this new (ish) short story, you can get it here.

Sing a Mournful Melody, Juli D. Revezzo, vampire, Gothic, short story


What's the story about? Well, I'll tell you. It's about a widow and a very strange visitor she has one night.

The synopsis goes something like this:
At the turn of the 20th century, tragedy has left Maribelle grief-stricken. After her beloved husband is murdered, his body disappears from his crypt. Worse, ghostly voices call from the widow's Graphophone. Is she losing her mind, or does something wicked this way come?  

Scatterbooker had a review of it in recent months, as well as A Woman's Wisdom,  and Reading the Paranormal, if you'd like to refresh your memory.

If you'd like to check it out, you can get it at Amazon, and now, Smashwords. I hope you'll enjoy it. :)

From the Roaring Deep is out!

My dear friend Jolene Dawe has an article included in this new anthology, dedicated to Poseidon and other Sea spirits. Do check it out!

New release: Celtic Stewards Chronicles returns

Hi everyone. Well, I have a little news for you. At long last, the second volume of my Celtic Stewards Chronicles is available. Yes, the harshad wars continue!

And with a pretty, pretty cover, again by Boulevard Photografica.

Druid Warrior's Heart, by Juli D. Revezzo, Celtic Stewards Chronicles, fantasy Medieval Romance, pagan paranormal romance, Irish Romance, borrow with Amazon Prime
For those very, very many of you who enjoyed PASSION’S SACRED DANCE, you might recall Stacy’s helpful ancestor Ruth? This new volume, DRUID WARRIOR’S HEART, is her book. As the series goes backwards in time, DRUID WARRIOR’S HEART takes place in the 1500s on the Macken family’s original homestead in Ireland.

I’m sorry it took so long to bring to you, but the writing of DRUID WARRIOR’S HEART took a lot of prep work and research to try to get Ruth’s era perfect. The book follows Ruth and Isaac in their early days together. As in PASSION’S SACRED DANCE, however, Ruth dips her own toes into the magical world of Irish mythology–and of course, gets her own harshad warrior Isaac (who you might recall is Aaron best friend in PASSION’S SACRED DANCE).

If you’d like to know a bit more about it, here’s the synopsis:

DRUID WARRIOR’S HEART (Celtic Stewards Chronicles, book two)
genre: Historical fantasy romance

As the latest in her family’s long line of Stewards, Ruth Macken awaits the arrival of a warrior sworn to the Tuatha dé Danaan, the Celtic gods her family has served since the beginning of time. For on that day, a magical battle will erupt. A war between druids and an evil that will decide the fate of mankind. 

Isaac Connel knows the battle is imminent, and is ready to fight, once again but from the moment he sees Ruth flitting around the sacred ground, he’s captivated by her fiery charms and a need to protect her. 

Despite Isaac’s assurances and the dreams that guide her, what can Ruth and her lover do to drive off this evil? Despite everything, will the world end at the hands of an evil god?

DRUID WARRIOR’S HEART is now available at Amazon. I hope you enjoy it, and if so, reviews are always welcome and appreciated. :) And for those of you who crave a real book, the paperback is on its way! As ever, thank you for reading!

~Omnia mutantur, nihil interit!

Wrapped in a case that puts her life in danger, and dealing with a grave situation back home in Pearl, Laydi figures out she wasn’t close to finding herself, and now, she’s risked everything. Girl Code excerpt image

FAITH EXCERPT:

She closed her eyes and sucked in the indescribable ache hitting her ribs with a force of a jagged knife. Not only did she walk away from him, she crossed a line with her sisters. What must they think of her? “Thank you for the beer.” She set her bottle on the table and rose.

He moved, blocking her path. “No,” he snapped. “You’re not walking away again.”

She recoiled, gazed into the blue eyes she loved, and couldn’t stop the quiver in her chin. “I’m sorry. I never meant to hurt you.”

He brought her wrist up between them, and set her hand on his chest. “There’s nothing to be sorry for.” His words filled with such affection, such determination, tingles raced over her skin.

“This is messed up,” she whispered, yet didn’t remove her hand. She couldn’t leave his comfort. Curling and uncurling her fingers, she spread her hand further to touch more of him. “I feel things that scare me. Remember things I didn’t know I did.”

He pressed a kiss to her forehead. “We’ll take it slow,” he said and tucked his chin until her gaze settled on his. “Okay?”

She nodded, and he pressed his mouth to hers in a feather-soft caress filled with gentleness and longing. His hand stayed against her lower back and the curve of her butt.

Through her yoga pants, heat radiated from his fingers. She prayed he’d move them lower.

As if he’d read her thoughts, he cupped a butt cheek and squeezed. His lips and tongue moved over hers like a fine-oiled machine, as if they’d kissed a hundred times.

She snuggled into him further, melted into the contour of his body, his hard plains aligning with her perfectly.

But she had to go. She needed time, distance, air. “I can’t.”

A low growl vibrated from him. She placed a kiss on his neck and laid her head against him, absorbing his comfort and warmth.

“The paper I gave you,” she said slowly, unsure exactly how she would proceed in bringing up what she’d done and the reason for it.

“The sketch?” He lifted a brow, confusion and something else she couldn’t name stretching across his features, and placed a hand on his pocket.

Her heart leapt so hard, she feared it would jump out of her chest, which made the raw emotions she faced harder.

“It may look like lines, a drawing, but it’s more. It reveals what I want most from life.” The pain of sharing something so deep, so personal with someone was difficult, yet with him, it felt right. “Research it. At the time, I couldn’t give any more,” she whispered next to his ear and kissed his cheek. Forcing a smile, she moved past him, down the steps, and headed home.

Cait Jarrod

"I write what I love to read - Romantic Suspense/Mystery- I love writing and creating the meet-cue (the point where the hero and heroine meet) to the blossoming of the romance. Add a suspenseful plot or a good mystery to the equation and the perfect book is born to curl up to and lose yourself in, taking you away from reality, troubles."

As a child, I entertained myself for hours playing pretend, but not with dolls and such. I created stories and pictured them in my mind, sometimes even acted them out, my well preserved secret until now. I spent years after leaving school trying to figure out my niche. Not being a literary enthusiast, I never thought my childhood pastime would lead in this direction.

In life, one door closes and another opens, so I'm told. This was true for me. I lost my mother, my best friend, to cancer. After a year without her, I picked up her favorite hobby...reading. After one book, a romantic suspense, I was hooked. In the past, I'd fall asleep after a few minutes of reading. Now, books rank up there with a good red wine. It didn't take long for my childhood muse to come back in adult version urging me to put the scenes in my head on paper.

I hope I have provided you with the escape similar to the ones I conjured in childhood and rediscovered as an adult, and I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I have loved creating them.

Cait's debut novel, Kidnapped Hearts won awards in the categories of Best Happily Ever After and Best Suspense. Cait lives in Virginia with her husband and three daughters.

Jessica Jayne
"My writing interests vary much like my reading interests. Though I mainly write romance type novels with a spicy twist, I have lived what some might call a suspenseful life. As a survivor of stalking and sexual assault, I learned the ins and outs of the legal system pretty quickly. It helped to precipitate my interest in getting my law degree... that and the fact that I grew up around attorneys. So adding suspense to my writing is no big surprise to me or anyone that knows me."

I am a born and raised small town Ohio girl, who moved to the Sunshine State after graduating from college. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in English because I could not imagine doing anything else but reading and writing. It is such a pleasure to be able to share all the stories in my head!

In the journey of life, I got my law degree (and license) and also became a wife and a mother of three children. So, life is always an adventure.

I love to read and write... obviously! I’m a huge sports fan, especially college football and the Ohio State Buckeyes! Go Steelers! Go Rays! Go Lightning! I LOVE to travel... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to travel. And I love sharing my love to travel with my children. Did I say I love to travel? I love to drink coffee in the morning and tea at night! I love a good glass of wine, especially if it comes from a bottle made by the FOOLS wine club… yep, I’m a founding member of that crazy group! J I love hanging out with my family and my friends! Music makes me happy. I’m a mix between country girl and city chic. But I love nothing more than putting on my jean shorts, tank top, cowboy boots and hat and watching Tim McGraw or Eric Church belt it out! I’m a sucker for a cowboy hat! J

Delve into the shadows of The Kyn with @JamiGrayAuthor and SHADOW'SEDGE... #FREEREAD #UF #PNR

I invited author Jami Gray over to tell us about her paranormal romance series, and something...snafued. My apologies to her. Despite the delay, I am pleased to introduce Jami to you. Please enjoy this look at her book SHADOW'S EDGE.

Delve into the shadows of The Kyn with Jami Gray


Much thanks to Juli for letting me come over and steal her readers for a bit. I've been asked numerous times where my story ideas come from, and I could wax eloquent and present this pretty picture of a creative mind, but that wouldn't be fair or accurate.

Here's the deal, I spent most of my teenage years wanting to be a different "me", a "me" that could rival Harry Potter (who I wouldn't meet until I was married with a mini-me on my hip and one in my belly). To achieve that I would take my favorite books and add in a role starring yours truly. Not a new trick, most avid readers do this to one extent or the other. Still at fourteen I decided my additional "role" was too big to hold in my gray matter, so it spilled onto 125 pages of hand written story. Sometime during those teen years I began to create my worlds, my roles and a whole slew of unique characters and writing became more than my escape, but my passion.

Still, as I tried to find my footing in this creative endeavor, each of my stories contained one, unchanging element--magic. When I wrote SHADOW'S EDGE I used my love of the unexplained and ancient tales of incomparable beings to create a "what-if" world. What if all those creatures we thought were myths, were real? How could they co-exist with the "normal" world? What would their world look like? What would happen if the veil of secrecy began to tear?

As I built my Kyn world, I wanted to make sure I had a spot for all those myths to call home. I have an entire backstory of how the preternatural population went underground, how the Library of Alexandria was reduced to ash to hide the truth. The Fey went first, quickly followed by the Amanusa (demon halflings), and the Lycans slunk away shortly after. The Magi (witches/warlocks/shamans) were the last to step into the shadows after following similar states during the Burning Times. Each group has their own creation story, and set of challenges. Amanusa, by their very nature, craves chaos, to the extent they'll create it when things get too calm. The Fey, with their inherent arrogance, are blind to their faults, the Lycan's live too close to their beasts, and the Magi are split between the witches holding true to their threefold law and the warlocks who have no problems trampling over their ethical lines to get what they want. That's not counting the complication of human involvement, and hiding in the modern world.

Want to find out what happens? Pick up your FREE copy of SHADOW'S EDGE, and walk alongside Raine McCord as she delves into the shadows to uncover who's hunting the Kyn.

Everyone fears what hunts in the shadows—especially the monsters… When the supernatural lurks in the shadows of the mundane, hunting monsters requires unique skills, like those of Raine McCord. A series of deaths threatens to reveal the Kyn community and forces her to partner with the sexy Gavin Durand. As the trail leads to the foundation haunting Raine’s childhood, she and Gavin must unravel lies and betrayals to discover not only each other, but the emerging threat to them and the entire magical community.

EXCERPT:
Walking into the dim house, Raine braced for the usual smell accompanying a violent death.

She knew that smell. It was distinctive. It reminded a person of raw meat and coppery blood. A scent warning you whatever you found, it wouldn’t be recognizable.

Coming down the short entryway, a few steps behind the two men, she realized there was no odor. No blood, no raw meat. She let out the breath she was holding. Only then picking up on the spine tingling traces of magic. It raised bumps along her skin as she drew closer to the front room.

Two agents passed her, heading out of the house, small evidence bags in their gloved hands. Osborn stopped just to the left of the front room’s entryway. Gavin came to a halt in the middle of the opening, blocking her view. Stepping around to his right, she came to an abrupt stop, puzzled.

Bane Mayson was sprawled on the faded green couch under the picture window. At first glance the scene didn’t make sense. There were no visible wounds, no horrific mutilations, nothing to show how he died. Just the skitter of magic down her spine, making the deceptively calm scene in front of her much more ominous.

"Can you give a positive ID?” Osborn’s rough voice pulled her gaze back to him. He looked at Gavin who wasn’t answering.She tilted her head to find out why, and then realized Gavin was looking at her.

“What?” she asked.

“I’ve never met him,” he said blandly. “Just spoke to him on the phone.”

“Oh.” A little disconcerted, she turned back to the waiting agent. “Yes, that’s Bane Mayson.”

If you want to play in the shadows, continue the adventure with Jami Gray's Kyn Kronicles: Banner         Jami Gray  Jami Gray is the award winning, multi-published author of the Urban Fantasy series, The Kyn Kronicles, and the Paranormal Romantic Suspense series, PSY-IV Teams. She can be soothed with coffee and chocolate. Surrounded by Star Wars obsessed males and two female labs moonlighting as the Fur Minxes, she escapes by playing with the voices in her head. Come stalk Jami at any of these fine locations:

 Thank you for being my guest, Jami! And for your patience. Folks, don't forget to check out The Kyn Chronicles, and as ever ...keep reading!
