Sneak Peek – Callisto Carvanis

Callisto Carvanis Sneak Peak

Callisto

After weeks of nothing, I’m finally back in the writing cave pumping out word after word. I started this story last year after first writing the character in Dark Indiscretions: A Prequel…I knew I wanted more of her. I just couldn’t let her go. Now she’s finally getting to tell the rest of her story aside from that small glimpse you were shown in A Prequel. There is so much more to Callisto than meets the eyes and I can’t wait to share her with the rest of the world. For now enjoy this extended sneak peek into the life of a Legacy!

From chapter 5…

Callisto took a bite of the meat and potatoes her mother had made and moan. It was so good. Say what you wanted about Reagan Carvanis but the woman could cook her butt off. Callisto hoped to one day be at least half the cook her mother was. She was slowly learning all her mother’s receipes but she doubted she cooked them as good as she did. Practice made perfect and Callisto strived for nothing but perfection since the day she was born. She had no doubts she would master the art of cooking soon as well.
“This is delicious Mother,” Callisto moaned out.
A resounding agreement was heard from her brothers and father. Her mother had seriously out done herself this time. Everything was melting in Callisto’s mouth.
“I can’t wait until you teach me this recipe. It’s one of my favorite meals.”
“You are very welcome Callisto and thank you,” Reagan said. “I’m glad you are enjoying your birthday dinner. If you think that is good, just wait until dessert.”
Callisto’s stomach rumbled in appreciation and she had to convince herself not to stuff food in her mouth faster than she’d be able to chew it. Callisto really wanted to talk about the society but her mother forbade such talk at her dinner table so they were resigned to eat in mostly silence.
“Will there still be a party tomorrow Mother,” Callisto asked to fill in the silence.
“Yes, the wives and I have set everything up. Your grandmother is very excited for it. A double birthday celebration for Christian and you. It was all we could do to keep you two a part from each other today. You’ve never went this long without being around each other.”
“I miss him terribly. I can’t wait to see him tomorrow. I want to hear all about his day since I missed the entire thing,” Callisto pouted.
“You two are awful. What ever will you do once your grown and have children of your own,” David teased.
“Our children will be the best of friends just like we are. Marriage won’t separate us from each other.”
Callisto watched as all her brothers rolled their eyes at her and went back to their dinners. They always teased her about being too attached to Christian. They didn’t know anything. Christian was hers, she just knew it.
“Leave your sister alone boys. It’s nothing wrong with her spending a lot of time with Christian. Although now that his Mooyer training will be starting in the next day or two, you won’t be spending as much time together,” Caden said.
I dropped my fork noisy on my plate.
“What do you mean I won’t get to see him?”
“Girls aren’t allowed in the society, you know that,” Reagan said.
“But why can’t we train together?”
“The training the boys receives is very different from the girls, Cal,” Caden Jr said.
“It’s not fair. I want to train with Christian. Why can’t we train together?”
“Don’t be ridiculous Callisto. Eat your food so we can open the rest of your presents,” Reagan scowled.
“NO! It’s not fair.”
Callisto picked her plate up and threw it down on the ground.

So what are you thoughts? I really hope everyone enjoys the first book in the Dark Indiscretions: Chronicles series. It is a spin-off of the Dark Indiscretions series. So far I only have four plan and Callisto’s is the only that coincides with the Dark Indiscretions timeline by the end of the book…the rest will take place before the events of Dark Indiscretions book one. They are more backstories of characters then anything else. Until next time. Now back to writing.

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:

UNEDITED AND SUBJECTED TO CHANGE! COPYRIGHT 2015 SHAKUITA JOHNSON

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.

Title: Rumspringa

Author: Shakuita Johnson

Genre: Paranormal

Cover Artist: WillowRaven

Release Date: June 17, 2015

Synopsis

What would you do for love? Would you sit by and let it pass you by, or would you grab onto it no matter the cost? Would you break the rules and leave everyone else behind so guarantee your own happiness?

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.

Instead of sitting by and letting her life be dictated, she acted. When faced with having to choose family over love, she chose love. She took control of her life and went on a journey that would turn all she knew and was always told upside down.

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.

Projects I’m Working On

Well with summer fast approaching I figured I’d take a few minutes to update you all on what projects I will be and I’m  working on…so freaking many that’s what! LOL, but seriously I’ll give you guys a rundown of the projects I’m working on in the next few months to a year…yes I have things planned that far out in advance…I mean I have 4 books signings for next year lined up already. And just because they are next year doesn’t mean I can slack off with preparations. Those babies will be here before you know it! So in typical OCD behavior for me…I’m going to do this in list format 🙂

  •  Exclusive member ONLY content – I will be posting open discussions about Dark Indiscretions past, present, and future…member only giveaways and content will be posted in this part of the blog. You will need to have a log in to access this information. Sometimes there might be spoilers so if you haven’t started the series you are going to want to stay away from this part of the site.

 

  • The last three books in Dark Indiscretions – Rumspringa will be releasing July 3rd 2015 and I will be releasing the last two book Triple Cursed and Past Hunted by Spring 2016…I hope to get Triple Cursed out before this year is over around November/December and then I will be starting on Pasted Hunted once Triple Cursed is done and I plan to have it to you all before April/May 2016…but as it will be the last in the series I don’t want to rush it as I want things wrapped up. I do no have an other book directly linked to this series arc planned but I hope to do Dark Morsels which I will talk about in a bit…stay tuned!

Dark Indiscretions

 

  • Callisto Carvanis: And A Legacy Was Born – this is the first in the spin-off of Dark Indiscretions that gives a bit more insight into certain characters that I couldn’t go fully into during Dark Indiscretions Series as there wasn’t a good place to add it. It will be a sort of companion read along side Dark Indiscretions…you can read Callisto without having read Dark Indiscretions but you are going to want to read Dark Indiscretions once you dive into Callisto if that makes sense. She will be releasing September 5, 2105.
