I tried to forget the sadness of RBG’s death by going out into the woods because it was a beautiful day. Everyone had that idea. Literally no place to park, I saw at least 100 people just in the parking area, no makes. I found a slightly better spot but it was still so crowded it wasn’t fun. Sigh. I’ll try again tomorrow elsewhere.

I have more of my new paranormal romance release, Cassadaga Nights

“Santino, I have something for you.”

“Is this a dirty call? I’m not alone.” He chuckled.

“Well, I was going to say meet me, but not for sexy times, regrettably.” God, did Ryan regret that. “Someone has, in theory, summoned a spirit that’s roaming the town, and JayEllen, another paranormal investigator, asked me to look into it. Want to come to the Cassadaga Cemetery with me?”

“How could I turn down such a weird date?

Blurb : Santino Bellomi and his coworker, Cam, are sent to Cassadaga, Florida by the Aspida Pneuma, a group of psychics and mages. Their job is to rescue a nixie from a polluted lake and to check out the town, which is known for its psychics. New recruits to the Aspida are always welcome and where better than a spiritualist camp to hunt for them? What Santino wants most, however, is to finish the assignment quickly. He isn’t a fan of heat and humidity, and he’d looking forward to a well-earned vacation once the mission is over.

Ryan Doyle grew up in Cassadaga, where being psychic runs in the family. Ryan has never roamed far from home, though it’s hard being a geeky gay, wannabe urban fantasy author living in a small town. His job as one of the town psychics is fairly routine until he meets someone new. Ryan has never encountered anyone with a psychic shield so strong until Santino sits down for a reading. Intrigued, he asks Santino out even though Santino is as secretive as he is fun.

Santino hopes to win Ryan over both for himself and for the Aspida. And he’s hoping his skills in the kitchen will swing the balance in his favor. Ryan has almost given up on finding love, living in rural Florida. Can a seductive tourist be the answer to his dreams?

Things never run smoothly for those in the Aspida. What should have been a simple rescue mission is plagued by mosquitoes, enraged ghosts, and someone or something draining residents of their life force. Ryan’s first foray into adventure may be his last.

I’m so overworked and brain dead I thought my release was yesterday for Cassadaga Nights (I did a count down and everything.) It’s Monday. Head desk. Also sitting here looking at the west coast with such dread and sadness.

So I’llbe continuing with my paranormal novella Cassadaga Nights. Have I mentioned that I used to live in the psychic commune of Cassadaga for a few years? It is an odd, fun little place. I’m continuing on with Ryan’s first sighting of Santino at a psychic reading. Lisa is Ryan’s mentee in how to do readings.

Would it be ethical to break into Lisa’s reading if she wasn’t having trouble and hurry her along because Ryan really wanted to take this man’s hand? Touch governed his ability to read someone, visions sometimes coming to him when he didn’t want them. Sometimes knowing people too well by merely touching them, or something they valued, could be heartbreaking. It didn’t stop Ryan from wanting to hold this man’s hand. Watch it be one of the times his powers gave him diddly-squat.

I survived the first week of working literally two teaching jobs because of my ill coworker. I haven’t had time to do anything but that. I haven’t even properly promoed my novella. I need to figure out how to get it in front of reviewers.

I’m continuing with my upcoming paranormal novella Cassadaga Nights Ryan is training a psychic (Lisa) when he spots Santino waiting for his turn at the half-price days.

Lisa finished up with her client without much need of his help. Ryan glanced up to see who was up next. His pulse quickened when he spied the dark-haired man at the head of the line. A whisper short of average height, the stranger made up for it in form. While his TARDIS T-shirt, which read “You never forget your first Doctor,” wasn’t tight enough to judge chest muscles by, his tanned arms were toned as were his legs left bare by cargo shorts. The man got extra points for being geeky.

I can’t believe how fast my release date is coming up on this. I can’t believe how busy I am. The other anatomy prof has emergency surgery this week so I’m teaching her classes and mine. I’m going to be exhausted.

I’m back with my upcoming release Cassadaga Nights. You met Ryan last week. This week you get to meet Santino and his partner, Cam and they are just a bit unusual. Also I’m pretty excited to have been asked for a sequel for this so I need to start thinking of more trouble to put them into.

“Where the hell is the garlic?”

“Knowing you, it’s everywhere.”

Santino glared over his shoulder at his partner, Cam, who sat at the kitchen table watching him cook. “You like garlic.”
He concentrated on the braid of bulbs on the counter. It wiggled, then flew over to his hand.

I do. And not walking to get the garlic is lazy,” she singsonged.

He yanked two cloves out of the head and hit them with the flat of his knife. “You know what our mentor says— The best way to improve your skills is to use them.”

“You ran around your parents’ house saying ‘I can use the Force!’ when you were a kid, didn’t you?” Cam cocked her head to the side. “Probably still do.”

Santino held up two fingers and his thumb, making a pinching motion. “I find your lack of faith disturbing,” he intoned.

I’m finally in a position to snippet from my upcoming paranormal novella Cassadaga Night. I used to live in Cassadaga, FL which has in it a psychic center and that features heavily in this. Also Natasha Snow did an amazing job on the cover.

Ryan drew his shield over himself, letting his psychic senses dampen down. All day, most days, he dropped his armor, walking around exposed, vulnerable on all sides to the flood of stimuli. Such was the life of a professional psychic. He was unable to cut himself off when he was on the job. His clients depended on his abilities. While he could cold read a person to give Houdini a run for his money, Ryan was the real deal when it came to being psychic.
