As promised, another unedited snippet from CHIMERA 2 otherwise known as ENTITY MINE
Caught between forms, shape-shifter Ethan Wade believes he’s a ghost. Lawyer turned psychic medium, Devon Daughtry thinks she’s falling in love with one.
A demon has them both in the cross-hairs…
The ever-present anger exploded through Ethan as he swiped at the cobweb-draped box, his ears too full of buzzing to process the continuing conversation.
Those were his things, everything he had in the world. How many times had he stuffed those meager belongings into a suitcase and moved on? First to a new foster home, then to a new posting, a new dive site, a new opportunity. They were the only constant in his world. He didn’t want a stranger rifling through them.
His hand sliced though the air, but made no impact. His arm hadn’t so much as raised a breeze. The woman continued talking as if nothing had happened.
The reminder of his true state took him back. Some of his fury seeped away. What good were material things to him? Though he had some sensation of touch, could feel the floor beneath his feet, had the illusion he could touch his chest, his face. He couldn’t handle the objects, couldn’t use them.
His shoulders slumped and he noticed for the first time the photo she’d handed Beth.
The last photo anyone had ever taken of him.

Where were we? Oh, yes, the contest winners. Before I was swallowed up by the holiday season, and my children’s birthdays, which are inconveniently on either side of Christmas and require parties with enormous amounts of children, I was running a contest. The prize was to have your name or that of a family member of your choice in my next Chimera Chronicles book, number 3, draft title, THE LIONS SHARE. The winner from author page likes was–Susan Berger. Susan, please instant message me on Facebook. Somehow, the comments here on my blog were closed, my apologies to those who attempted to comment and couldn’t. I will be running this contest again, and will make sure those comments are open. THE LION’S SHARE takes place during a bank robbery and I have lots of characters to name.:-) The winner from my regular facebook page was Jamie Fugate. Please message me, Jamie.
and coming tomorrow a new snippet from my draft of ENTITY MINE (CHIMERA CHRONICLES #2) due out in Feb/Mar 2014.
Draft blurb: Never fall in love with a man in a photo, especially when he’s dead…
Former Navy SEAL turned maritime treasure hunter Ethan Wade has had a piss-poor year. After nearly choking out his financial backer costs him his livelihood, he retreats to an isolated rental house in Western, NY to lick his wounds and make sure he can’t hurt anyone else. When his old crew track him down to convince him to come back, a Molotov cocktail of rage and alcohol drives him drives him to do something he’s never done before, and doesn’t even know he can do–
Unfortunately, in his ignorance, rather than shift into a lion or a dragon, he ends up disembodied. Not knowing what he is, he can only come to one conclusion. He’s died and is a ghost.
Lawyer Devon Daughtry’s year hasn’t been one for the record books either. Blowing the whistle lost her her boyfriend, (not too much of a loss), her job, (a bit worse) and with the rents in Manhattan, a primo apartment (the straw that broke the camel’s back).
Now she’s home in Cassadaga determined to re-build her life by hanging out her shingle as a psychic medium.
When she discovers a photograph of Ethan while moving in, she’s immediately drawn to him and is crushed to discover he’s missing and presumed dead. Soon, she begins having passionate dreams about him. Dreams that Ethan shares.
But Ethan isn’t the only being in the house, a demonic presence has followed her home and it has diabolical plans for both of them.
