I have just released my latest novel, Mystic Mist, Book One in the New Breed Series in print at Amazon. It will come out in e-Book version on September 30. However you can pre-order for $1.00 on Amazon, iTunes, Barnes and Noble.It is quite different from my other works. Josie's Thorn and Where She Belongs, Books one and two, are romance novels which received some decent reviews. This one is of the Fantasy Paranormal genre. The early reviews I'm receiving are from satisfied readers, so this tells me this novel is well on its way. I guess I can breathe now. Smiling.
Oftentimes, as writers, we worry about our content. Is it good enough? Is it exciting enough? Is there enough action, suspense, mystery, drama, romance, or will my readers be bored to tears with the story? I believe it is a common fear, and one I endure with each novel I release.
With this latest novel, as my anxiety rises, I am reminded by friends who know me well, that it is time to breathe.
The story is written, the muses have spoke, and I need to trust their voices. With that said, I wanted to take you once more behind the mist, and introduce you to Erich Keenton.
Erich is seventeen years old, soon to be eighteen. He hails from Scotland, but will be attending his freshman year in the United States, at a New England college, near the town of Tonospon, Massachusetts.
As the son of a prominent world renown scientist and a successful medical doctor, Erich inherited near perfect genes. He is 6'2, muscular, with dark locks and medium completion. Try as he might, Erich cannot walk into a crowded room unnoticed. Throughout school, Erich was popular with the girls, and recognized with numerous honors.
Erich is a typical teenager in that he likes girls, fast cars, sports, and hanging out with friends, but he is definitely wise beyond his young age, and chooses to say no to alcohol, drugs, and sex. Yes, he's a rare teenager.
Steaphan and Lorne taught Erich skills throughout his childhood that would benefit him physically, mentally, and emotionally. The entire family exercised daily, and Erich was actively engaged in the sports of Football, Baseball, and Fencing.
Erich grew toward adulthood with the idea that he would be successful so long as he always did his best. As a result of the well rounded upbringing, Erich has become a strong, yet sensitive, and intelligent young man, making his parents proud.
The fondest memory Erich took with him was the special moments he enjoyed with his parents in their family settings, with the reading ofLegends being his most fondest of all. However, there is one worry constant on Steaphan and Lorne's minds. Fighting the demons of their past.
Erich's future looks bright, and he's excited about what it has in store for him. He already knows what field of work he wants to enter, and he's planning to do what it takes to accomplish the goals that will get him there. Erich is prepared for college and any challenge it brings.
The only thing is, Erich is about to face a whole lot more than college. He's about to face those that are coming through the Mystic Mist.
