My Paranormal Experiences before Tears of Crimson



My journey into paranormal started long before I started writing books about it.  Growing up in a haunted house, I just assumed what I experienced was normal.  It wasn't until later in life that I discovered people didn't experience things the way I did.  I guess I was about three, that's my first recollection of strange things happening at my grandmother's house.  Chairs rocking back and forth, entities that came and went at will.  Like I said, I just thought these were normal occurrences.  It wasn't until a tragedy happened in my teen years that I became frightened of the things going on.

I remember the night of that event vividly.  One of our neighbors committed suicide.  My baby sister, who must have been nine or so at the time, woke up screaming that man was standing by her bed with a bandage around his head.  We were sleeping together and after she finally settled down, I was still terrified by her nightmare.  Then the most god awful roar sounded, the back door flung open, and these pounding footsteps moved through the house, waking the entire family.  After that happened my grandmother got the call from the neighbor about the suicide.  It was a night I won't ever forget.

There had always been strange things in my Granny's house but after that night they escalated.  A little girl without a face, my mother saw her often.  Objects disappearing, that were later found in the attic.  A feeling of being touched, or pushed, never uncommon.  Doors slamming, glasses falling out of cabinets, and strange feelings of dread that would just overcome you at times for no reason at all. Still to this day, I blame my grandfather's suicide which happened years later, on the things going on in that house.  My grandmother's death as well because while hers was ruled accidental overdose of insulin, it never made sense.  Obviously those deaths were very traumatic for me, so I can accept that my opinion might be a touch biased.

My grandfather before that horrific event, claimed that there were people in our home trying to steal things.  He would constantly ask if we saw them.  His physician chalked that up to his illness, but seeing the thing I'd grown up around, that never seemed valid.  My grandmother in her last days talked about aliens and spirits constantly and again, it was ruled as part of her illness.  I think the last straw for me was when my twins were born.  Having them covered up by invisible hands was impossible to ignore and I wouldn't set foot in that place again for all the money in the world.  That house was sold, and surrounding neighbors had their own haunting experiences.  It would be a ghost hunters dream if they ever did decide to investigate, I just won't be part of it.



I guess you might be asking yourself how vampires and the other forms of supernatural came from a haunting?  That's an interesting story in itself!  When all those tragedies were taking place in my life, I couldn't cope and suffered severe depression.  I was fifteen at the time, and dealing with puberty on top of those horrible events.  It's not something I talk about much today because I'm a very positive person, but during those days I was done with everything!  That's when Rafe came to me in dreams.  He was my salvation, literally.  The dreams began with me standing in a beautiful field and a planet of brilliant white coming down from the heavens.  I reached out to touch it in a dream, and my adventure with the man I consider my muse and guardian, began.
Every night for ten years, he would visit me in those dreams, taking me to a world that can't compare with anything I've seen here on earth.  Other nights we'd walk the abandoned streets of New Orleans, which is somewhat strange because I'd never visited the city in those days.  They were very passionate dreams and to me they were as real as me discussing this on the Tears site today.  Tears of Crimson is based on those dreams and the beautiful, yet haunting paranormal world that Rafe opened my eyes to.  Is any of it true?  In my dreams it happened, and if you believe that dreams are simply our walk in an alternative world, then who knows?  When you read Cara and Rafe, you're stepping inside the world that shaped who I am today.  Cara was always one of my favorite names.  I mentioned my twin daughters earlier, well what most people don't know is that I was supposed to have triplets.  One of them didn't survive and she would have been Kara.  So in my mind, I've immortalized her memory while sharing the story that's been with me all my life.

Undiscovered - Dellani Oakes

Undiscovered has some mature content and is not appropriate for readers under 17.

Kent Griswald is a high powered movie executive known for his micro-managing and aggressive supervision of a movie from beginning to end. He's not well liked professionally or personally, so when someone puts a knife in his chest, no one is terribly surprised. However, someone also took pot shots at his younger brother, Connor, who has no enemies. Detectives Walter Scott and Vanessa Weinstein are called in on the case, ready for action.

Unfortunately, Detective Scott hadn't counted on the eyewitness, Cadence Stuart. Pretty and personable, she's also terrified that the killer may come after her next. It's up to Scott to protect her from the tall, dark killer. Unfortunately, so far, the killer's identity and whereabouts are Undiscovered.

Cadence sank into a soft chair in his outer office as he shut the door on the sales room. Closing her eyes, she let the murmur of voices wash over her. The loud report of a heavy caliber rifle shocked the air. Another followed.

Cadence ran down the hall. That sounded like it came from the room she'd been showing. What the hell? Frozen with indecision, she stood in the hallway. Pounding footsteps sounded from down the corridor to her left.

Turning, she saw a man in a black ski mask and anonymous clothing barreling down the hall toward the elevator ahead of her. Although he was running away from her, she noticed he was tall, broad shouldered and moved like an athlete. He hit the stairway, running full tilt. It wouldn't take him long to clear four stories to the ground floor.

Bob and the Andersons ran to the hallway behind her, crowding to get past.

"What was that?" Bob demanded.

"Sounded like a gunshot," Ted replied, wide eyed.

Susan clung to him, weeping hysterically. Cadence whipped out her phone and called 911.

"What's the nature of your emergency?"

"I'm at the Ocean Sun condo," Cadence replied. "I want to report a 10-10."

There was a pause. "Possible shots fired? You a cop, sugar?"

Cadence didn't like the dispatcher's tone.

"My dad is. Listen, there's really a problem here."

"Already got a call, got two officers rolling. You say you're in the condo?"

"Yes, ma'am. Fourth floor."

"Not on the beach?"

Cadence paused. "No. Inside, on the fourth floor."

"I'll send someone else. The other officers are responding to a call on the beach at that same address."

"Thank you. My name is Cadence Stuart. I'll meet the officers down at the front desk."

"Thank you, Miss Stuart. I'll tell them."

"Bob, call the front desk. Tell them the cops are coming. I'll be down in a minute."

"Will do, sugar."

Cadence ran to the living room of the open unit. Pandemonium on the beach greeted her. A cluster of people stood around something, many of them crying, some talking on phones. Utter chaos ensued.

Brandy Lynn - Make me Forget

Title: Make Me Forget
Author: Brandy Lynn
Genre: New Adult, Romance
Release Date: February 23, 2015
*Inspired by true events*

Where do you turn when the ones who are supposed to love you most, hurt you? 

When is enough, enough? 

That is the exact question Chloe Evans had when she escaped her own personal hell that terrifying night. Even though the road to rebuilding her life has been tough, she's spent the last two years trying to mend her battered soul. Doubting that all her efforts are even worth it, she begins to feel she will forever be tied to the man who took everything away from her. 

Ryder Matthews is the epitome of what most girls associate with perfection. With his good looks, bad boy persona, multiple tattoos and piercings he is every girl’s fantasy; every girl except Chloe Evans that is. Ryder sees Chloe as a challenge...one that he's more than confident he will win.

Drew Nichols is every girls dream guy. He’s sweet, sincere, trusting, and most of all patient. He’s exactly what Chloe needs in her life, but is he who she wants? 

We all have things in life we'd like to forget about. Some bigger than others. When Chloe uses college as her diversion to escape the memories will either of them be able to make her forget?
There’s a huge banner hanging above the entrance that says, Welcome Freshmen. Distracted with reading it, I almost collide with my resident adviser.
Popping her gum she sticks out her hand and says “Hey, I’m Erin, the RA for your floor and you are?”
Wiping my clammy hands on my jeans I stick out my hand, “Chloe Evans.”
She shakes it, then untucks a clipboard from under her arm and flips through the attached stack of papers. “Okay...” she runs her fingers over the pages. “Evans, Chloe... let me see. Here you are. You are in room 306. Third floor,” she replies cheerily.
“Great. Thank you,” I say. Time to unpack. I head back to my car to grab a couple of boxes. Heaving two boxes and a bag out of my trunk, I turn to head up to my dorm when suddenly I lose my grip, my toe hitches on the curb and just before I face-plant on the concrete, I'm caught by two strong arms that pull me back to my feet.
For a moment, all I can see are muscular arms covered in tattoos. I catch a glimpse of the name Matthews written in black Celtic script running the length of his forearm from below his elbow to his wrist. When I look up, his striking cobalt blue eyes distract me from my embarrassment. His jet-black hair looks just long enough for me to run my fingers through it and I'll be damned if that's not exactly what I want to do. His thick lips are spread wide in a charming smile. His features are strong and his jaw line is chiseled, softened only by a day's worth of stubble. He's the paragon of masculine beauty.
Dumbstruck, I flush with embarrassment. I'm staring but who wouldn’t stare at him? He's amused; I can see it in his eyes.
“Tha –Than – Thank you,” I stutter. Geez, Chloe could you sound anymore ridiculous, I scold myself. Get your shit together. Despite the cautioning voices in my head, I hesitate to detach myself from his arms. Somehow I find the strength to step back just a bit.
“No problem, sweetheart. Next time watch those curbs. I may not always be around.” He winks and at first I'm speechless, then almost immediately indignant.
“I am not your sweetheart.” I've never been a fan of nicknames which is why I’m so upset at his callous use of one. Just hearing the word 'sweetheart' makes me cringe. That term is not a term of endearment for me. It brings back memories. Memories that I don’t want unleashed and demons that I don’t want chasing me. I’ve spent years ridding myself of those dark times and I do not want to go backwards.
“Not yet,” he replies. Those two words threaten to make me weak in the knees. His voice is a dark rich baritone, like an audible dessert. He is definitely confident and arrogant, I think to myself. Either way, I am ready to give it back to him.
“Yet? I stare at him questioning with large doe-eyes. I cannot believe the audacity this guy has. “You’re awful confident for just meeting me,” I balk.
"I enjoy a challenge princess," he winks, walking away. Who the fuck was that? And, what the hell just happened to me?
Brandy Lynn resides in Richmond, Virginia with her husband, teenage son, and furry friend. She's a retired blogger, chocoholic, aspiring writer, wine lover, avid reader, procrastinator, animal lover, and a craft fanatic. Her debut novel, Make Me Forget is scheduled to release on February 23, 2015.

KM Scott

Pam Godwin
Abby stood nervously before her Master in the classic submissive pose: fully nude, legs apart, wrists placed behind her back; deeply ashamed of her evident arousal. Worse, she had to recount in exact detail the proceedings of her last whipping. The whipping had been severe; as was the case with most of the clients she was commissioned to serve. These client appointments were scheduled a few weeks apart, in order that the welts, bruises and whatever other marks were left behind had ample time to heal. After all, each new client - whether male, female, a couple, or even a group - surely deserved a fresh canvas upon which to begin. Despite these harsh sessions, her body reacted like that of a wanton whore as she retold of the sadistic punishments and extreme sexual use inflicted upon her body.

How far would her Master push her with these ‘tests’? How far would Abigail go? How many times could she stand before him blushing; yet with that unmistakable tingle? Their relationship was surely headed for a collision course. Or was it? This story contains STRONG BDSM. While fully consensual, it includes submission, dominance, sadism and masochism. Please do NOT buy or read this if you are offended by graphic sexual descriptions including sexual violence. All characters are aged 25+, and it is recommended for an adult audience ONLY (aged 21+). This story is pure fiction and the author does not condone any violent behavior.

Warning: This is neither a conventional romance nor a traditional love story. There are no hearts and flowers on the pages of this book. The heroine doesn’t always make wise choices and though I’ve tried to make her strong, she’s often times weak in the face of the fierce hero. The hero is not a knight in a shining armor. He’s broken and frequently cruel, and what every woman in the real world should avoid. What’s contained in this book isn’t real - it’s fiction; dark, depraved and decadent make-believe. Contains detailed sexual encounters, profanity, uncomfortable situation, and erotic elements including voyeurism, oral and anal. INTENDED FOR READERS 18+.

Obsession, possession, resilience, insanity— Seeking solitude and reprieve from her past failed relationships, Elsa begins her life anew in Richmond, hoping to find the change that she so desperately needs. Things are looking up for her, a new job, new friends— a fresh start. But Victor has different plans for her. From the moment he heard her voice and set his eyes on Elsa, she became next on his to-do list; his Chapter 8. A well-known and respected criminal profiler, his mind is as dark as the people he hunts down. It takes one to know one, after all. Under the guise of making his subjects stronger, he intends to break Elsa down using everything in his arsenal, including pleasure, pain, humiliation, and things unspeakable. Everyone is fair game in his book and he discriminates against no one when he chooses his test subjects. Lonely, still on the mend from a bad break-up and longing for sexual attention, Elsa consents to an odd proposition, unaware of Victor’s plans. However, she can’t be broken so easily and what he puts her through only fuels the fire burning within her, a flame that begins to blaze out of control as she becomes obsessed with everything about Victor and peeling back his cruel layers in search of the real man hiding beneath his heartless facade. In Victor’s world, there is no such thing as happily ever after and Chapter 8 proves to be an infuriating challenger when she flips the tables on his selfish and twisted game, a game they both may end up losing their hearts and minds over.
