WeWriWa: Pre-release Pandemonium!


While busily editing my WIP, I’m stepping back to do promo on the paranormal boxed set I’m featured in. My PARANORMAL ATTRACTIONS selection contains a direct tie-in to PRINCE OF HONOR (said WIP) as REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT launches a series of plot arcs that continue into my “House of Terriot Foursome” series. For this week’s 8-10 lines, here’s another glimpse at REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT with my hero, Max Savoie, ruminating over the past he doesn’t remember . . .

They’ll find you, hurt you, kill you. 

Don’t let them see what you are, what you can do. 

Too very distinct voices haunted him: One he’d come to believe was his mother’s who’d died horribly when he was a child, and the other, he assumed from what he’d learned, was his mentor, mobster Jimmy Legere. What had they known that he had yet to discover if he was to survive? 

That one forceful need seemed to drive him, the key to all he had been, to all he was. A deep, desperate, clawing, tearing purpose rooted in fears that shadowed his soul, forbidding this trust his supposed mate spoke of, challenging the life of wealth and hard won respect he’d been shown that afternoon, denying the insistent claims that he was safe amongst friends. Why did none of those things quiet the insistence that all was not well, that he was teetering on a precipice of disaster that would carry all he’d loved with him? 

If survival was the key, his memories held the treasure of knowledge locked beyond that wall of blankness. He had to get through, or this woman, these people, this world he supposedly protected would all be lost. And that meant plunging into a vast unknown with only tentative threads of offered trust to hold him.


How can the poor guy move forward when the darkness of an unknown past threatens his future? What a predicament!

REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT, along with eight other delicious paranormal tales, is available for pre-order, with the release date of June 20 rapidly approaching.
