Well, here we are. Mid-way through the month of October. The air is crisp, the leaves are crunchy…it's a great time of year.Here at Supernatural Central we're celebrating the change of the season by recognizing that it's getting darker. And we mean everywhere. At least in the northern hemisphere.
To bring more darkness into your life, today we're sitting down with author Lynn Thompson, to talk about her DARK FATES COLLECTIONS, which is really 3 books wrapped into one. BONUS!
It's got Dark Fates, Dark Fates-Madness, and NewsWorthy, plus an extra story at the end just for you. But wait…there's more. (I've always wanted to say that!) As part of a Halloween blitz, Lynn has made it available to you free for a limited time, so mark your calendar. . All you need to do is go here: October 28-31 Promo
We were curious about the books, and asked Lynn a few questions.SC: Tell us about the main character in your book.
LT: Dark Fates Collections is a book of short stories where every story has a new main character.SC: Aha! Got it. Lots of main characters. It sounds like the kind of stories you can read when you've got a few quiet moments, maybe before bed…or not. People always wonder why we're so fascinated by the mysterious. Do you believe in the paranormal?
LT: I do believe in the paranormal and have had many paranormal experiences beginning when I was a child. Some of them fun. Some that made my skin crawl. My favorite was after my grandmother passed away. She would come visit me every once in a while. I would smell her perfume, feel her presence, and I got a glimpse of her silhouette once. She no longer visits me, but just knowing she was there if I needed her was a big comfort.SC: It seems to us that the more accepting you are, the more experiences you get. Fodder for the imagination, for sure. What are you working on next?
LT: I'm almost finished with Sam's story, Tarnished Gold and hope to have it out by the beginning of the year. Here is the blurb:When Sam first met Jamie in Sterling, she was homeless, dressed in rags, and a mess. She had no memory of her parents or where she came from. Jamie couldn’t imagine throwing Sam back out on the street, so Jamie took her in and made her part of the family. Now, with Jamie gone on vacation, Sam is left to her own devices.
Sam is home schooled and suspects Drake, her teacher, and Derek, his son, of spying on her house. She would like to know why, but, before her suspicions are confirmed, Sam casts a memory spell to help her piece together her past.To add to her confusion, a gang of kids bring her into their group. She’s never had friends – at least not any she can remember. Her self-doubt gets in the way as she struggles to figure out how to fit in.
Then Sam’s life really explodes! The spell worked, and her memories are coming back at the most inconvenient times. She’s starting dating a guy she really likes, and she soon realizes she has too many secrets she needs to keep from everybody she knows.As Sam tries to juggle these new elements in her life, Drake continues to pile on the homework, leaving her no time for her new friends, her new boyfriend, the memories conjured by her spell, or time to figure out why Drake is so interested in her house.
Will the cobwebs of Sam’s past get the best of her?Will Sam be able to figure out what is going on in time? Or will Drake get the upper hand?
SC: Okay, Lynn. Get back to work so we find out the answer, okay?Still want to know more about Lynn? Here you go:
