Happy Saturday 🙂 Just a short post to announce that both Dark Scorpio and Ghoultown are free now through November 1st!
Happy Sunday! Here is an excerpt from Dark Scorpio~ out now 🙂
copyright@October Weeks 2019
As the autopsy began, she opened her gift so she could see the Pisces and Scorpio signs on the victim. Nothing was out of the ordinary until the heart was removed. “Stop.”
Her breath caught as the image of a scorpion wrapped around the heart and then sank inside.
“What is it?” Sora asked.
“Pick up the heart, Asher, so that I can see it more clearly.”
He picked the heart up carefully and held it over the body.
The shape of a scorpion began to form again on the heart, almost as if someone was burning it on.
Sora cursed in Japanese, and though she didn’t understand a word of it, she caught the meaning well enough: ‘fucking hell and damnation’.
“The first heart did not do that,” Asher said.
As the Scorpio constellation began to sparkle like a ruby in sunlight, Autumn’s eyes narrowed. “That’s because the first victim wasn’t Zodiac gifted—this one is. She marked his soul. That’s why her trail disappeared so fast.” She met Sora’s dark gaze. “She’s using the Piscean energy to hide herself, using his soul to wipe the trail clean.”
So…that short story I was talking about? This is it! Dark Scorpio will be released next month and is the introduction to a new series 🙂
If they fail to save the city, the world will fall to darkness.
As an agent for the Supernatural Enforcement Agency’s Zodiac Unit, Autumn Kaine is used to the darker side of human nature. She investigates crimes that involve those gifted with the power of the Zodiac. But when she’s called into a case with the local police, even she is taken aback by the brutality of the attack.
That case turns out to be just the tip of the iceberg.
Gifted Zodiacs that thrive on the darker side of their power are starting to kill the signs they are most compatible with, and with each kill the darkness sinks deeper into the Heart of the city. The dark Scorpio Autumn is tracking is the key to stopping the bloodbath- and she is running out of time.
Once the Heart of Pandora turns completely dark, the entire world will turn with it.
Over the River is again available!
Down a snowy dirt road, in a farmhouse filled with death and fear, there is a woman…
The Weatherby Mills history books paint Joslyn Faust as a kind and generous woman who was willing to help any of her neighbors in need. Weatherby Mills lore, however, holds her ghost responsible for the deaths of four men.
Delilah Isles knows all the legends of the tri-towns: from the friendliest and nastiest of ghosts, to the dangerous and terrifying beasts and beings of the Dark and Glory. So when the case of the Faust Homestead lands on her desk, she is both intrigued and skeptical.
Working for the New England Spirit Society, she and her partner, Milly West, have seen spirits and non-human entities commit many brutal attacks. After all, the N.E.S.S. only investigates the most violent and disturbing cases. However, even with the four assaults contributed to Joslyn Faust, Delilah isn’t certain the case is truly N.E.S.S. material. That all changes the first time she and Milly set foot on the Faust property and witness firsthand just how vicious the celebrated townswoman’s spirit can be.
I am planning on putting these up on iBooks, so stay tuned for that link!
I have a special announcement today 🙂 Ghoultown~ an Isles and West novella~ is being re-released! Right now, it has gone live on Kobo, but I will post links as it goes live elsewhere.
Boston is on its knees: one hundred sixteen infected, eighty-two dead. There is no sign that the attacks from the Dark will stop anytime soon.
In training with the FBI’s Reaper Team, Delilah Dalton and Milly Shores—two nineteen year olds with gifts to deal with the dead and the Dark—are caught up in the gruesome case. A case that will push their abilities to the limit.
If the team can’t stop the killing soon, South Boston will be nothing but a blood-drenched feeding ground for dark beasts.
This is my first time self-publishing, and luckily I have experienced people walking me through the process (thank you Skyla Dawn Cameron!). If all goes well this round, I will re-release the full-length books as well as my short story, The Red Barn. Hopefully that will happen by the end of this year.
In the meantime, please enjoy Ghoultown once again! I did a light edit, so only a few minor changes have been made. In series news, I am revising Sera’s first novel, which I hope to have ready once the other three are released. That way you all get a new book right off the bat 🙂 I am also working on the new Delilah and Milly novel.
Have a great day!
Welcome to another Series Saturday!
One day when I was searching for a new paranormal series to read, I found myself on the Carina Press website, where I stumbled upon the first book in the Lost Souls series by Natasha Hoar. I loved the cover, and once I read the blurb I hurriedly bought a copy…and I’m very happy I did 🙂

Rachel Miller thought her next job was a run-of-the-mill haunting. As a member of the Order of Rescue Mediums it’s her duty to release trapped spirits from the earthly realm. But when called to client Sylvia Elkeles’s house, she finds a wraith who doesn’t act like he should.
The Order considers the wraith an extreme threat and Rachel may be forced to use a barbaric ritual to free him—a ritual that comes with a heavy personal price. If she fails to humanely release the wraith, she’ll have her supernatural abilities bound.
When Janus Ostara—local supernatural mob boss—shows up demanding her attention, and Sylvia keeps secrets that may place Rachel in mortal danger, she doesn’t need her abilities to know something darkly sinister is at play.
Between uncovering Sylvia’s disturbing motives, and avoiding Janus, Rachel has enough on her hands without dealing with a wraith who may not realize he’s supposed to be dead…
This time the dead are hungry…
Rachel Miller doesn’t just see dead people, she rescues them. As a member of The Order of Rescue Mediums, she spends most of her time helping stubborn spirits move on from the world. But after she learns the details of three brutal murders, she knows the culprit can only be a reaper, an undead monster that relentlessly stalks its victims to feed on their souls.
A reaper once consumed the soul of Rachel’s mentor as she watched frozen in fear. Now, Rachel is in the role of teacher to Kit Elkeles, a rodach just learning to control his wraithlike powers. After Kit and Rachel rescue a half-vampire, they work to protect him while searching for a way to stop the reaper. But when Rachel realizes who the monster is really after—and just what kind of dark magic she’ll need to stop it—will she be able to do what is necessary before it devours one of her friends…or even herself?
These books are novellas, and I actually really enjoy that. I enjoy shorter, episodic reads just as much as I love full novels. Hoar does a fantastic job of pulling the reader into the world of Lost Souls and making them never want to leave.
I hope we’ll get a third in the series because I’ve been dying to know what happens next!
Amazon has set Aequitas out into the world! Go forth, and read Delilah and Milly’s latest adventure 🙂 ❤
Two families. Over two centuries. Countless victims.
It all comes down to this…
Delilah Isles has been waiting for the Tay family to make their move, and when they do the cost is a heavy one. They attack the young daughter of a close family friend, which forces Delilah to go up the mountain and start the investigation that has been two centuries in the making.
The Tays have been planning the moment of battle since their deaths, and Delilah knows that she and Milly won’t be able to fight the Tays on their own. But calling in backup brings unexpected consequences. Consequences that Delilah could never have imagined.
