By Patrice Michelle, author of SCIONS: RESURRECTION

The other day I went to a gem show with a girlfriend.  Sure there were plenty of beautiful, sparkly gems from diamonds to emeralds and everything in between to marvel over, but I was more interested in the unusual stuff…like rocks that have natural sparkle, crystals and of course geodes—crack that rough, dull surface open and unpolished beauty lies inside! Such amazing stones grow naturally all around us.  Now that was interesting! I found a couple of really unique stones I’d never heard of before and purchased them because my mind was already working on ways to incorporate these cool stones into a new story. 

As we were walking out, I told my friend, “My author-mind kind of works in contrast to many authors.  Instead of a storyline idea first, I’ll find an item that sparks my interest and I’ll build an entire story; the world, characters—everything—around that one thing in my mind until I have to write the novel.” 🙂

That’s exactly how many of my books were inspired and SCIONS: RESURRECTION was no exception.  But instead of an item as my inspiration, I had a dream.  When I woke up, I started scribbling.  The more I thought about that surreal dream, I began to build an entire plot, characters and world around it. RESURRECTION kicks off the first of my SCIONS books, featuring vampires, werewolves and other paranormal events.

Each of the SCIONS books will read as a stand-alone romance, but there is an underlying prophesy that will flow from book one, RESURRECTION to book two, INSURRECTION, and then the prophesy will be fully revealed in book three, REVELATION.

If you like paranormal action-adventure with a sexy, heart-tugging romance woven throughout, I hope you’ll give SCIONS a try.

All the best,
