WHEN STARS DIE (Being re-released by Gnome on Pig Productions)

When Amelia finds out her younger brother is a witch, they must flee—or die. The city of Malva is rife with puritanical hatred for witches, who are said to embody the Seven Deadly Sins of mankind. Amelia’s only chance of saving Nathaniel, her brother, is to become a professed nun at Cathedral Reims, but doing so means enduring a series of trials: near-starvation, intense isolation, beatings, and blood-sucking leeches. Escalating these are shadowy beings only Amelia can see. After harming her best friend with fire, a witch’s signature, she worries they are after her because she is a witch like her brother, who reveals he, too, can see them.

Oliver Cromwell, a dashing priest at Cathedral Reims, confirms her fears. He tells Amelia that these beings are Shadowmen: dead, unredeemed witches, seeking witches like Amelia to join their ranks. When this group of rebel Shadowmen begin planning to destroy those who slaughtered them, Oliver is the only one who can protect Amelia and save Malva. Yet, he may prove to be more dangerous than the shadows themselves—and his love for Amelia fatal.

    Victoria’s Asylum of Maggots, sounds like an awesome story. Throughout my life, I’ve had some major bouts with depression…during my 9 years in the US Army and in my “regular” life. Mental wards are quite gloomy, but for some, they do help. I can think of a few stories myself to write, but now is not the time. Good luck with your other WIP. 🙂

      I’ve been to psych wards myself. I hated my first one but found my second one far more helpful because I felt like I was an adult, not a kindergartner.

        The psych ward I was in while in the army, 97th General Hospital, in Frankfurt, Germany, after Desert Storm was a bit barbaric. Sometimes I thought the oxymoron of (MI) Military Intelligence was ill defined, and they had the wrong soldiers confined.

      When Stars Die is the book about to be published, but it doesn’t have a release date or even cover ready yet. However, it does have two companion pieces for it, two short fiction pieces that give readers a glimpse into what they’ll find in When Stars Die.
