July is a Month to Celebrate!

Heaven-sent Warrior Cover

July is known for celebrations and fireworks. In America, we celebrate Independence Day on the 4th of July. After the fireworks fizzle out, the real celebration starts! My new book, Heaven-sent Warrior, will be released with great fanfare on Wednesday July 18th. This full-length paranormal romance, set in North Carolina, deviates from my normal Scottish characters and shape-shifting dragons. Intrigued? Here is a taste:

 

 

HEAVEN-SENT WARRIOR

CHAPTER 1

Present Day

Raleigh, North Carolina

Henrí Chevalier materialized in human form, stretched his naked limbs, and groaned. Bones, long unused, slid into place. He arched his back, raising both arms toward the night sky. Aching in a dozen places, he inhaled and savored crisp fresh air.

I am free.

Lowering his arms, he flexed all ten fingers, and shook the numbness away. His last memory was of a cold, damp wall at his back. No longer imprisoned, he relished his newfound freedom. Rubbing phantom pain at each wrist, Henrí soon relaxed, while he slid his fingers over one cheek. As he brushed the light stubble, the tips tingled. Moving his hand lower, he paused on the pulse pounding beneath the skin of his neck.

Life beats here. I am alive again.

A clean, grassy scent lingered on the night breeze. The sweetness made his lips twitch into a slight smile. Such normalcy, he thought, even as he turned in a circle with slow determination to get his bearings. Sleep-filled eyes adjusted to the inky night’s low light. Odd forms hovered near, and he fought the urge to crouch low, into a warrior’s stance.

I shall stand my ground this night.

Odd sensations cautioned him to move slowly. Rounded pebbles pressed into the soles of his bare feet until he tripped over something low and hard. His hand shot out into blackness, slamming against something smooth and icy.

Mon Dieu!” Did God care that he was cold and achy, standing alone in a strange place? As if in answer, clouds moved aside, and the moon’s radiance spilled over a trio of statues. Familiarity made his eyebrows quiver. He brushed loose hair off his face and stared at the hard, cold bronze beneath his palm. His breath caught in his throat, remembering the pain, sorrow, and loneliness. Without love, there was no life. One-sided love did not count. This was not the time to feel sorry for himself.

Why Paranormal?

Okay, I talked about sci fi, now the other side. For me it starts with revealing my little secret – I wrote fanfic for X-Files for ten years (10!!). Like I said, I’ve always written. What I didn’t mention was I never allowed anyone to read anything I wrote – it was just for me.

X-Files Logo

Then I stumbled across a fanfic story that popped up on my feed. I didn’t know any such thing existed. I dived in headfirst. I wrote over 500 short stories, including a 60 chapter novel – After the Future – which got a chapter a month. You do the math, I wrote that thing for five years with monthly installments! Fanfic has no formal editors and quite often it shows, but we had fun!

That led me to writing about those little changes that make someone “different”. Again, as with sci fi, the possibilities are endless and you can create your own rules about whatever abilities your hero and/or heroine have. So now I’ve written psychics, ghosts, supernatural children . . . Having to follow the rules of physics isn’t necessary and the imagination can soar.  Small Changes, Before You, Learning Trust,  Wraith’s Heart

Talk to me, what abilities would you want to read about (or have yourself)?

Why Science Fiction

Well, for me it came naturally. Both of my parents read extensively – Daddy, sci fi and Momma, Harlequin (I still remember those boxes arriving.).

In third grade my teacher, Mrs. Hickman, allowed us to bring in books to read when we’d finished our work to keep quiet while she helped someone who wasn’t finished. One of the books I chose came from Daddy’s paperbacks in the basement – Slan Slan new coverby A. E. van Vogt. Okay maybe that wasn’t what most third graders would read, but it was about a young boy who was an alien, and I was fascinated. Then Momma found the book in my bag and took it away. I was told that I couldn’t take that book to school because, and I quote here, girls don’t read science fiction. Well, that sealed my fate. If I wasn’t supposed to read it because of my lesser gender, it was the only thing I wanted to read.

I’ve been at it ever since. The freedom of possibilities has always drawn me in. The fact that women could be the heroes and anything could be achieved kept me going long before #MeToo came along. I’ve added my own to the mix now and added a little romance to them (hey, that’s what was missing!) and am enjoying it immensely. Below are some of my sci fi covers. Anyone want to guess what’s in the distance of the one with forest – Rth Rising.  Alien Embrace

Do you remember what led you to the love of reading? Please share – you never know what will inspire someone to pick up a book!

Let me introduce myself

Hi! I’m Donna Steele and I’ll be visiting with you here at Supernatural Superlatives now. A little about me – I’ve been writing my whole life, and I can state that with reassurance now. When Hubby and I downsized and moved to our condo, I found a manuscript I wrote when I was seven! It’s never going to see the light of day, but I wrote it, so I’ve been at this awhile.Time banner copy

I’m celebrating right now. My 23rd book came out June 20. A Different Time is the second in the Guardians of Now series that I’m writing for Soul Mate Publishing. The first in the series, Another Time came out last year and the third, A New Time, is half written. I hadn’t written a time travel before so this led to some fun research – medical practices, women’s rights, and green energy in 1891. In this second book, they’re back but things are not the way they remember them.

Back in a futuristic present following their time travel, Dusty and Dee have a lot to catch up on in their new reality. Things have improved, but people still have their issues. With their child on the way, they think everything will be smoother sailing.

The other influences have different ideas. The Guardians are watching as the offspring heralds monumental changes, and The Malveks plot to discover why a planet they had planned to invade is no longer viable.

I’d love to hear from you!

 

 

Happy Summer Solstice 2018 from Dawn Marie Hamilton

Sunrise at Stonehenge

Ahhh, yes! The summer solstice arrived this morning in the northern hemisphere at 6:07 A.M. EDT. ‘Tis my favorite time of the year. I love when the days have the longest period of daylight. More time to spend in the gardens.

I imagine many a soul flocked to Stonehenge this morning in celebration. I’m celebrating getting my fingers dirty in the gardens.

I hope you have a magical day!
