Hells to the yeah!
Pardon me while I do a little jog on my dining room table. I'm just a wee bit excited.
The release of Faythe Reclaimed is just around the corner! I finally get to share Taylor and Gabriel's story with you! Woot!
Running through a strange forest with a bloodthirsty demon hot on her heels wasn’t Taylor’s idea of a rockin’ evening. Then again, neither was soaring backward through time and space. Time travel chafed and left a rank, nasty aftertaste. So, when she finds herself floundering amidst a sea of Commandment-loving holy rollers who fling accusations of witchcraft and bedevilment like hotcakes in a diner, finding her way home jumps to the top of her to do list. Too bad she can’t remember who she is or where she came from. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Taylor realizes she’s fallen for Gabriel, the mysterious Latin warlock who came to her rescue.Battling an identity crisis and lost in a time that’s not her own, Taylor is determined to find her way back to twenty-first century Hanaford Park. But first, she and Gabriel must work together to uncover the dark scourge lurking in the shadows of Salem Village, and in doing so, save their lives, and the lives of countless innocents from a lethal date with the hangman’s noose.
Out of all the Hanaford Park books, Taylor and Gabriel's story was both the most difficult and the most rewarding. Difficult for a reason I can't mention without spoiling the entire story, and rewarding because after months of struggling to make sure I had everything just right, I believe I ended up with a story that is bigger than its predecessors, darker, angstier, and a heck of a lot steamier. And hey...who doesn't enjoy steamier? Right?
Oh, and did I mention the story is told from both Taylor and Gabriel's points of view? Yep! That's right, baby. This story is as much about Gabriel's journey as it is Taylor's, and we get inside look into his thoughts and feelings throughout. Woot!
The title of book three is special, and holds quite a bit of meaning as it's a definite play on words. Beaten down and oppressed by judgmental haters for the majority of his life, Gabriel has lost his faith, in both himself and others. The majority of the story takes place in Salem Village circa 1692. You can imagine the amount of acceptance displayed by most of the people during that time period: none. Couple this lack of trust in humanity as a whole with the loss of the only woman he's ever loved, and you've got the makings for an angst-filled story that showcases Gabriel's journey to regain his faith/Faythe.
I CAN NOT WAIT to share Taylor and Gabriel's story with all of you! To mark the release of Faythe Reclaimed, I'm throwing a Virtual Launch Party, and I'd love for you to join me!
