Hello, dear readers, and welcome!
Today is a very special day here at the blog -- the day to introduce both the cover and synopsis for my upcoming second installment in the Fleur Passages, Read the Flower: Part Two!
The title of this second bit is "Disillusioned Bravery", and it will be out on July 26th in ebook (paperback to come), only a few days away, really. I'm very excited for this second part, because in writing it, I was able to delve further into this story than I ever have, and really get at the heart of it -- and also to start alluding to the main theme of the story as a whole.
As fans probably know, I started writing Read the Flower after I first read the novel Dracula, by Bram Stoker. It's been at least four years since I wrote the first draft, and the story has changed a lot since then -- and it's changed even more now, with this new installment, leading it down a closer path to Dracula than I could have ever suspected (but I won't give away too much). It's been an amazing experience to see this story change so much -- again! -- within only a few chapters, and I'm extremely excited to see where it will go next.
If you haven't read part one of the Fleur Passages yet, the e-book is now available free on a variety of sites, including Amazon and Smashwords. Unfortunately, the date for the Reader Participation poll has passed, but part two will come with another poll for you to participate in. So, if you haven't read yet, be sure to catch up before part two is out! It's going to be thrilling. You can find links to part one on the Reader Participation Novellas page.
The cover is to the right, and check out the synopsis for Read the Flower: Part Two below!
Happy reading. :)
Read the Flower: Part Two ~ Disillusioned Bravery....Official Synopsis
Twenty-year-old Lorine Stringfield’s life has been forever altered, and now she must decide…
After the tragic night in the ballroom, where Lorine discovered the terrifying truth about the man she was beginning to fall for, our heroine wakes up to find herself a prisoner at the Chateau du Jumeaux. As she searches for the reason why her life was spared, Lorine begins to encounter the complexities of the vampire world, and is haunted by dreams of a mysterious figure that bears her ill intent.
This all amounts to one pivotal decision, and as Lorine prepares to either accept or shun her fate, the past comes alive when a terrible truth about Honore is revealed, and life or death is placed in her hands.
Part two in the Fleur Passages, a collection of novellas to later be sewn into one novel, Disillusioned Bravery continues the epic tale of Lorine, begun in part one, The Beautiful Beginning. This novella marks the second in a series of ebooks in which readers can take part with "Reader Participation" -- inside of the ebook there is a question linked to the next volume in the Fleur Passages, and readers can vote for their favorite answer, to have a say in what happens next!
