Dark Indiscretions Re-release

You may or may not have seen by now that I am revamping Dark Indiscretions book 1. I feel a lot of things were left out and I can honestly say I had no idea what I was doing when I first wrote it. Not only was it my first actually book (I’d only written poems and two short stories before this). I didn’t really know my world that I’d created. I kind of just went with it and lately all the pieces started fitting together into something that started to make sense. So I’ve held off on the rest of the series to go back to the beginning and flesh some things out. When it’s all said and done 8K will be added to the overall total word count. Bringing it to about 45K from it’s original 37K. Now for the most part the plot and people will stay the same but a few scenes as well as a bit of detail has been added. After thinking about it I saw that I left a lot of things out. Things that are important and I didn’t want to just randomly toss this information into the last two books of the Dark Indiscretions Series. The re-release will be Oct. 31, 2015. For now here’s a little snippet:

He had a spell he needed to cast before he made his move. Reinforcements would need to be summoned before he showed his hand to Jennifer. She would not expect this turn of events. Making his way to the basement of the townhouse he’d bought, he went to the giant pentagram he’d etched into the concrete. The amount of magic he was about to channel would require a few herbs to focus the energy. Could he do it without them? Absolutely, but using the herbs would make the task quicker. Raw energy channel was always risky, no matter how old and experienced the Mystic doing the channeling was. And resurrecting people took even more energy and focus.
Going over to his impressive bookshelf, he looked through them all until he found the one he’d written centuries ago. It had the spell that would help him do this summoning right the first time. Looking over what he’d written he went over to his herb cabinet and pulled down some anise, gardenia, and thistle. They were good for conjuring the dead. The spell would make them whole again once the herb mixture summoned them to him. He took down a bowl and crushed the herbs up inside it. After sprinkling a bit of oil over them he struck a match and threw it in. Gently picking the bowl up, he walked back over to the pentagram and put the bowl in the center.
The smoke started to thicken as the herbs burned. Her started to slowly fan the smoke out from the bowl with his hands. Thinking of those he wished to summon until their shapes started to form around the circle. Once he could clearly see their confused spirits, he stood up tall and put as much of his power behind his words as he could.

Blood of my blood
Mind to mind
Ripped from your bodies
Now turned to spirit
My power calls to thee
Come back and follow me
Taken from this world too soon
Now on this day of a crescent moon
I nearby grant you all your power
So come and reclaim what was taken in your weaken hour
Revenge is close, within your grasp
Snatch it quick or for the opportunity is fast

Or something like that. He was never good at the writing spells part. He preferred just blasting raw power into his enemies. Once Jennifer was his he’d make her write him better spells. For now he stood by and watched his handiwork. The spell worked and that was all that matter. Jennifer wouldn’t know what hit her.

Sy Cole wants what all sixteen-year-old girls in her coven want. To master one of the four elements, move out of her parents’ home, and into her new one with her chosen husband. It seemed all that was within her grasp, when it was brutally snatched away.

On the run and looking over her shoulder Sy, along with her love Jamie, look for the only people she believes can help them now…her brothers.

Join Sy as she undergoes the ceremony that changes her life forever. Whether it’s for good or bad is still to be determined.

Three destinies entwined since the beginning of time…

James Johnston, ruthless, evil, Mystic, is not looking for love. In fact, the only things keeping him going are revenge, obsession, and an ancient Prophecy. He’s back from the Hell his niece sent him to for the second time and is ready to make her immortal life miserable. He also has a daughter to mold and an ancient Prophecy to fulfill. He wants everything to burn and die around him. He feels no love, no loyalty—only rage. Yet, one action sprouts several reactions and before long, he may lose complete control over his own fate. But not to worry, he has a plan…

Alexander Carvanis, Mooyer. Legacy. After his occult upbringing, he only knows one thing: kill anything that has been labeled “Tarnished” by the Mooyer Society, led by his father. He is obsessed with one thought in his mind and it isn’t his own. The only things he’s ever known are what his father told him. He’s followed for years without question and it all comes tumbling down because of his blind obsession to bring down the one he never trusted. Five forbidden journals later and his whole life has changed. Now, the very person he set out to ruin is the only person he can trust not to kill him on sight…

Isobelle Mina, freak, or so she always thought. But there is more to her—so much more than she had ever dreamed possible. Secrets, lies, and betrayal threaten to push her over the edge. A destiny she isn’t sure she wants and two men who are fated to be hers, if only they can see past their hatred…

Will these three overcome a vendetta thousands of years in the making, or will the wounds be too old to heal?

Excerpt

1996

“So what in the hell is phase three exactly?” Sam asked.

“Weapons,” Alexander said.

If it wasn’t for all those years spent learning to contain himself, Alexander would have been jumping up and down at the thought of finally being able to use weapons. It was a dream come true.

“Like hunting rifles?”

“Better.”

“What’s better than hunting rifles? Ain’t nothing better than hunting rifles, boy!”

Alexander rolled his eyes. He swore Sam’s accent got thicker at times just to annoy the hell out of him. He did it on purpose to sound as ignorant as some of the other legacies thought he was, but Alexander knew better. Sam was smarter than Alexander and Alexander was a genius.

“You’re an idiot.”

“Yep and you still love me. Who’s teaching us these weapons you’re so excited about?”

Alexander gave Sam a rare smile.

“My father and your grandfather.”

“Don’t do that shit! I hate when you get that creepy smile on your face. It’s borderline psychotic.”

“And I hate when you sound like Hillbilly Bob, but you do it anyway to annoy me.”

“Truer words ain’t never been spoken.”

“Let’s go, Bob.”

Alexander and Samuel rushed to the shooting range on the hundreds of acres of land owned by The Society. Most of the Legacy families also had houses on the land but there was also cool stuff like the gym and this range. They were early as usual but Alexander’s father and Sam’s grandfather were already there as well.

“Well, someone’s eager for weapons training,” Derrick said.

Sam pointed his finger at Alexander and Alexander slapped it away.

“I just like to be early to things,” Alexander Jr. said.

“Like your father that way,” Derrick said.

“I learn from the best,” Alexander Jr. said.

“Flattery won’t soften me up, son,” Alexander Sr. said.

Sam snickered in the background.

“I can still beat you up,” Alexander Jr. said.

“I’ve been practicing with my brother,” Sam said, raising his chin.
