I’m so excited and I hope you are too!

Thought I’d provide you all with a taste of the action you can expect in “Rekindled Prophecy.”

***

As she rounded the corner, she saw the building and, as expected, shadows and spirits on all sides. To most, the scene would appear to be nothing more than an old red brick building in the heart of a deserted, rundown neighborhood. Stray newspapers blew across the street on a brisk breeze. A street lamp buzzed and flickered. But something was missing … no sounds of organic life, not even the chirping of crickets or a lone dog barking to warn of her approach.

What Greylyn saw stopped her heart mid-beat. A nearly black, ominous grouping of clouds blocked her path. Grotesque forms were silhouetted in the dense fog. Such a crowd of evil entities was disturbing. Some she could chalk up to the normal spirits attracted to the energy the psychic emitted. But there was no denying that there were a lot of sinister spirits intermingled with the rest, along with demons in more corporeal forms. Getting past that mass was not only dangerous, but close to suicide.

Guess this makes it official … the woman is a true psychic. She didn’t know whether to be relieved or not at this point.

She drew her dagger out from behind her back, letting its reassuring coolness and energy spread from her palm throughout the rest of her body. Greylyn took a deep breath, burying deep down any fear or trepidation. Mentally, she drew in light energy as her armor. Invisible to the naked eye, she felt the shield click into place around herself.

There was no sound of her feet as they hit the broken pavement at a sprint. No more than a hundred yards from the building, she penetrated the black mist. Like a swarm, they descended on her.

She sliced her way past a dozen or more entities. Some she recognized, but some beings she had never seen before. There were a few iridescent puffs of mist that were simply spirits that got caught in the crossfire. For that, Greylyn was regretful. Most spirits were well-meaning, or just looking for answers to their own afterlife. But tonight, they were collateral damage in her fight through the more malevolent creatures standing between her and the human medium in that building.

Interspersed in the fog of spirits were a variety of monsters, some she’d never encountered before tonight. She whirled amongst the throng of evil forces standing between her and the building entrance, slashing with her dagger. More creatures filled the void, collapsing in on her. A banshee flashed before her with its fairy’s face contorted as it wailed. Well, this banshee wasn’t going to be around long enough to signal another death. The jagged edges of Greylyn’s blade slit the hag’s crinkled neck before she turned to fight off a horde of Jinn who continuously changed form. Some stayed invisible until just before they struck out at her. Others, both corporeal and not, Greylyn used her intuition to track, stabbing and cutting as she raced for the building.

The splintered wooden door was just within her reach when a large Vilkacis, a nasty werewolf hybrid, yanked her away by grabbing her ponytail. Intense pain flashed down her spine as a shriek escaped her lips. Her dagger slashed out, slicing its hand off. Free, she burst through the door.

Author Shout-out to Debut Author Crystal North and the Release of “Vengeance”

So excited for the release of Vengeance from an amazing author, Crystal North.

***

What you’re about to witness comes from a dark place. It’s taken a lot of planning, but you should know that every single thing I’m about to do is deserved. More than deserved, it’s owed, tenfold. Nothing I could do to these people will ever be enough to get even.

***

Charlotte McLintock has a new identity and a new look as Raven Deighton. She needs it so that she can infiltrate the elite private school that’s covering up her twin’s death. They claimed it was suicide, but she knows better.

Her plan’s been almost two years in the making. What started off as a desire to know the truth has turned into a burning compulsion for vengeance. However, she soon finds that life at Westchester Preparatory Academy’s not what she expected and that everyone’s hiding secrets – even the four hot guys she’s rapidly falling for.

Her one mission is to uncover the truth about what happened to Lizzie so that she can make everyone involved pay, and she’s not about to let anyone or anything – even her own torturous heart- stop her from burning them all to the ground.

***
Vengeance is a contemporary New Adult reverse harem bully romance, with dark themes and a twist. It works as a savage standalone piece (if you love a cliffhanger) but will actually form part of a trilogy with closure at the end of the series.

When Fiction & Reality Collide

I am quite literally jumping up and down in excitement right now.

First, some background – the Irish B&B in rural VA where a lot of Rekindled Prophecy (Greylyn the Guardian Angel series, Book 1) takes place was actually named Killahevlin (in the book, it’s called Gaelic Haven). The inn has since closed down and last I checked it was still For Sale (in case someone in interested in owning a beautiful B&B).

Now, the excited part – There is an actual hotel, Killyhevlin, in the exact county in Ireland, overlooking the exact lough (lake) mentioned throughout the series as where my protagonist (Greylyn) originally came from.

There are glimpses into County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland starting in Book 2 and basically all of Book 3 is situated there and in Dublin.

How I did not know this before now, I have no idea! Seriously, that is fate!

This is the inn in Front Royal, VA where most of the story takes place in Rekindled Prophecy.
This is the Killyhevlin Hotel in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, overlooking Lough (Lake) Erne.
I foresee some updates to Book 2 and Book 3 to add in more about this place. Originally, I had Greylyn (the main character) arriving back in Ireland at a small inn overlooking Lough Erne but I believe she deserves a serious upgrade in accommodations.
To put things in perspective why I’m so thrilled about this revelation…I was married at the VA B&B, Killahevlin, back in 2000. I didn’t start writing Greylyn’s story until 2016 or so (with kids and all the other chaos of running a household of eight people, writing was first done in fits and starts and stops and repeat cycle). Today (9/16/2019) I find out that the B&B where I was married (name changed in the book to Gaelic Haven) was named for an actual luxury hotel and resort in the actual location where Greylyn’s story originates – Ennishkilllen, County Fermanagh, overlooking Lough Erne.

Book Cover Reveal for Rekindled Prophecy

Drum roll, please.

Rekindled Prophecy Hardcover 3d

Guardian angel, Greylyn saves innocent humans from their own inner demons or the more nefarious real ones. She’s overdue for some rest and relaxation, but upon finding her archenemy already entrenched at an authentic Irish bed and breakfast, she knows her vacation is over before it ever starts.

Enemies for over four centuries, Greylyn has fought the dark guardian, Kael; and fought her desire for him. This time, however, she must work with the dashing dark guardian to protect innocent lives. It’s a deadly gamble. One she has no choice but to take.

But the situation is far more treacherous than she realizes as a notorious fallen archangel holds the lives of a mother and her unborn child over Greylyn’s head to force her to consummate a dormant, but deadly prophecy. One so deadly that Heaven didn’t even write it down.

The Rekindled Prophecy: Greylyn the Guardian Angel is an urban fantasy novel with strong undertones of romance and sex appeal between two enemies – one working for Heaven, the other working for Hell.

Ready, Set, Go!

There’s butterflies in my belly and I’m feeling a wee bit light-headed. Why, you ask. Because last week I wrapped up my review of the eGallery (basically the digital proof) for my first full-length novel, Rekindled Prophecy, and sent it back to the publisher.

Next step…an actual hard copy printout in all it’s glory for one last review to ensure perfection before we can get it out onto the bookstore shelves and into the Amazon bookstore (or other online book retailer) for you!!!

Here’s a nice link to my Amazon author page so you’ll have everything you need to simply click and purchase Rekindled Prophecy when it comes out in November!

And here’s the link to my author page on GoodReads too https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/19024932.K_C_Freeman

In addition, I’ll be attending my first ever author event, well as an author this time! Tomorrow, September 10, 2019 I will join other fabulous authors from the Charlotte, NC area in a meetup at Barnes & Noble at the Carolina Place Mall. The event is sponsored by Hopewriters and is titled “Hope*Writer Day”.  For more information on this event, please check out their FB page @hopewriterscommunity.

This past week I also posted my first ever live FB video to discuss my upcoming book, Rekindled Prophecy. Please check it out when you can. Last week’s discussion centered on “What is a guardian angel?” since my protagonist is a guardian angel and there’s not a vast amount of novels out there with guardian angels. You can check out the video here –  https://www.facebook.com/pg/KCFreemanAuthor/videos/?ref=page_internal

In short, my answer for what a guardian angel is — Once human, now angel who walks the earth helping save us from our own inner demons and the more nefarious real ones. Check out the video for more details please.

This week’s FB live discussion will focus on dark guardians. What are they exactly? Please check out my FB page later this week for the answer.

Time is drawing near for the release of Rekindled Prophecy so expect to hear more from me in the coming weeks and months.

Thanks for your patience as I took a sabbatical over the summer to be with my children. School is back in session now and I am more than excited to write/edit/discuss Rekindled Prophecy and the rest of the books in the series, as well as other story ideas that have been brewing in my head over the last few months.

Again, please join the book discussion on my FB author page https://www.facebook.com/pg/KCFreemanAuthor/

or my Twitter page https://twitter.com/KCFreeman5

I look forward to bringing you more details on the upcoming book release and discussing everything from guardian angels to fallen archangels with you soon.

Blessings to all!
