Becoming a Demons cheerleader was the last thing Harper Madison expected when she moved to the small town of Peachville. Now that she's an official member of the squad, her training can begin. Only, this is no normal group of cheerleaders. Harper isn't there to learn dances and cheers. She became a cheerleader in order to finally learn how to control the magic inside.
The Peachville Demons cheerleading squad is really a training ground for a powerful coven of witches called the Order of Shadows. The training opens up a new world for Harper. It's a world of beauty and magic beyond her wildest dreams, but also a world of pressure and impossible expectations.
A world where every secret hides an even darker secret.
INNER DEMONS, Book 2 of the Peachville High Demons series is out!
Thanks to all the awesome comments from my critique group last week, I was able to put the finishing touches on Inner Demons over the weekend. This morning, I worked on the formatting and published through Smashwords!
It feels so amazing to get my second book out there. I have really been working hard over the past several months, and I couldn't be happier with all the comments and reviews I've gotten so far. I'm both nervous and excited to see what you think about Book 2!
Buy INNER DEMONS now on Smashwords.
Kindle and Barnes & Noble versions will be uploaded today as well, but they usually take a little longer to show up in the stores. I'll keep you posted!
In the meantime, here is an excerpt:
Lark smiled mischievously, like she had a secret.
“What?” I asked.
“Watch,” she said. She slid off the bed and sat down in the center of her floor on a square pink rug. She crossed her legs and set her hands palm up on her knees.
I felt a tingle of energy on the tiny hairs on my arm. I didn't know whether to sit down with her or back away.
Her eyes closed and her lips moved silently. There was movement in the air that lifted my hair slightly off my shoulders. Underneath where Lark was sitting, the pink rug slowly turned a color of teal as bright as pictures I'd seen of the Caribbean ocean. The color crept outward from her in a circular pattern, like a drop of water spreading on a napkin.
The dark wood furniture suddenly became shiny white. The polka-dot bedspread turned black with teal and white stripes, the color perfectly matching the newly teal rug on the floor. Other details of the room changed too. Like the lamp on her bedside table. I watched as it turned from a wooden base with a pink shade to a tall chrome base with a shimmery white shade. When the circle of color reached the edges of the room, a bright white paint climbed up the walls, replacing the pink that was already there. One wall became a teal accent wall.
Less than ten minutes after Lark sat down, the entire room transformed in front of my eyes. I stood, open-mouthed, staring at each changed detail.
“You like it?” She opened her eyes and stood, hand on one hip, surveying her work.
“Like it? This is incredible.” I walked over to the bedside table and touched the lamp to make sure it was real. The chrome base was cool to the touch and very much real chrome.
“How did you do that?”
“It's called a glamour,” she said.
