I had planned a blog posting the links for the newly put up blurbs for the Southern Spirits series at TEB... wrote it, saved it, eventually posted it... looked great, except there were no links showing. Why? I've no idea; I used the link icon and all of that, then tried again. The links showed in my post until I slapped it up here.
So, crap. These won't be clickable, but here they are;-)
This is the series blurb, which I messed up. How I managed that is a long, dull, and stoopid story, so we'll skip it, but I will get the blurb fixed. It should read as follows:
There’s nothing quite like a Southern drawl or Southern charm—and nothing so loyal as a Southern spirit.
On the surface, McKinton, Texas seems like the stereotypical small town, USA. Smiling faces greet you everywhere you go, and people are quick to lend a helping hand. Most people, that is. Then there’s the ones who let hate rule their lives, who are controlled by their own twisted passions, who are determined to hurt and destroy.
While love can often withstand and triumph over such hatred, sometimes even love needs a helping hand. There’s something in McKinton that stands ready; Southern Spirits that intervene at the worst and best of times. These spirits strive to protect the men of McKinton, and their partners as well.
With their humor, charm, and death-defying love, these spirits will do whatever it takes to protect their loved ones—and the town of McKinton, Texas, will never be the same again.
The blurb for the first book in the series, A Subtle Breeze, is here:
No cover art yet, but I should have it soon, and what the heck, I may as well post that blurb, too--
Book one in the Southern Spirits Series
Ezekiel Matthers and Brendon Shanahan are about to find out that sometimes all it takes is a subtle breeze to shift the winds of fate.
Ezekiel Matthers is a reclusive man, forcing himself into the exile of his ranch after a violent assault left him wounded. While the scars on the outside have faded, the damage inside is much harder to conquer. Zeke resigns himself to a solitary existence, aside from his sister Enessa and, of course, his mama's occasional visits.
Brendon Shanahan has a very meddling cousin, Gloria, who is best buds with Enessa Matthers. When the two women convince Brendon that he should hook-up with the reclusive Zeke, a plan is hatched that sets a series of events into motion - with potentially deadly consequences.
Can Ezekiel conquer his fears and accept what Brendon is offering? Or will Brendon walk away, giving up on the love he has waited for? And will the visits from Zeke's mama-- deceased for four years now--help the two men find their way to each other?
Only time will tell, and that may be the one thing the lovers don't have, because someone is out to destroy everything Zeke and Brendon hold dear - and this time, the bad guy just might succeed.
So, blurbs, there you have them. Writing those things is almost as bad as writing a synopsis...
