Romance Paranormal

They live ordinary lives, but they are extraordinary. They are the Offspring, children of a mysterious experiment gone awry—and they are in terrible danger.

Rand Brandenburg can see the future, yet thus far all he has done with his unique ability is become a skillful gambler. But according to the Offspring, his power has made him a target and could get him killed. So the loner used to living on the edge is now hiding out with others just like him, including Zoe Stoker, a mysterious redhead who has his heart soaring.

But that's not the only thing Zoe's got flying. All her life, whenever she felt anything too intensely, objects would start moving. She's never been able to control her power, so instead she's shut down her emotions. Now, as a powerful enemy approaches, she's losing control of her heart. But letting love lead her out of the darkness might save her life . . .

Re: Out Of The Darkness

I haven't read either of these yet but they sound really good. Gee's that to get list just keeps a growing. :)
The covers are very very nice!
Big Congrats on your new release!
(Chris Jones 1:59am October 8, 2009)

Hi, Chris! Thanks! Yeah, I know about the to-get list. LOL.
(
Jaime Rush 8:46am October 8, 2009)

So just for fun, as I mentioned in my blog, the Offsprings' parents were given a mysterious substance to boost their psychic ability. If you were writing the series, what would you have that substance be?
(
Jaime Rush 8:48am October 8, 2009)

Would love a copy!
(
Debra Davis 11:48am October 8, 2009)

I absolutely cannot wit to read this!
(
Debra Davis 12:00pm October 8, 2009)

Maybe something mythical with herbs and bat wings:). Or a elixir with mysterious ancient ingredients that would bring, instead of immortality, an enhanced psychic ability.
(
Theresa Buckholtz 12:15pm October 8, 2009)

A great blog!
Thanks!

Marjorie Carmony 12:19pm October 8, 2009)

Looks like great books!!!! More to add to my 'to buy' list.
(
Valerie Bongards 12:43pm October 8, 2009)

i just love this genre of read
(
Sue Hieber 12:52pm October 8, 2009)

I love series books. You read one and are hooked and waiting for the release dates of the rest.
(
Annetta Stolpmann 1:08pm October 8, 2009)

I found it interesting that your characters make you work so hard keeping track of them. Congratulations your new book sounds great. It is definitely on my must read list.
(
Rosemary Krejsa 1:09pm October 8, 2009)

Your new book sounds like something that I would really enjoy reading. I'm going to have to add it to my TBR pile.
Thanks.
(
Maude Allen 1:56pm October 8, 2009)

I loved reading about your books and now I can't wait to read them. Thanks for a wonderful teaser.
(
Robin McKay 2:41pm October 8, 2009)

That's weird...I checked here at 1pm and didn't see any new comments! IE has been making me crazy lately. :?

Theresa, bat wings! Love it!

Thanks, Marjorie!

Thanks, Valerie!

Sue, cool! There's a great selection of paranormal out there now!

Annetta, that's what I'm hoping! LOL

Thanks, Rosemary! Well, the devil is in the details, and some readers are really up on that kind of thing.

Thanks, Maude!

Thanks, Robin!

And don't forget to sign up for both my Be in a Book promotion and the cauldron of goodies my publisher is giving. They're both on the Contest page!

Jaime Rush 2:57pm October 8, 2009)

I agree with everyone. Definitely a wonderful teaser and definitely on the must read list! Also, as for the contents of the substance, I agree with Theresa's suggestion. I like the idea that the formula was intended for another purpose and the psychic abilities were as unexpected as the insanity. This also leaves it open to perhaps have another series where another attempt produces another side effect (perhaps shape shifting). I also like Theresa's idea of it being an ancient elixir. This makes me think of alchemy and opens up so many possibilities. For example, you could end up bringing back extinct species or dragons. Wow! Can you tell that your blog (and the replies) has made me think creatively as well as making me excited to read your books?!? Thanks for the books and thanks for the blog!

This sounds really good. Please enter me.

Read book one. Loved it! Haven't got a copy of book 2 yet! Hint, hint, wink, wink.
As for the chemical used to enhance the offspring, I think it should be some sort of chemical mixture of everyday pharmaceuticals that only one chemist knows the exact formula that needs nuclear power to finish it's process. He also has the counteractive agent that if injected into an offspring takes their psychic ability away, but may have some very unpleasant side affect such as death.

Sheila Corriveau 3:31pm October 8, 2009)

Oh yeah I forgot to say I love the covers! That is what drew me to the first one.
(
Sheila Corriveau 3:32pm October 8, 2009)

sounds like an amazing story marking them both on my endless list of to buy.
its my only vise and I'm work it mind you I could open up my own library lol.
(
Ann w 4:20pm October 8, 2009)

Another book to add to my wish list; I've seen your books and now after your blog I'll take a closer look.
(
Diane Sadler 4:26pm October 8, 2009)

The cover has caught me hook, line, and sinker!

What is your opinion on book trailers? Do you think they help in book sales?

Thanks.
(
Tracey Dent 4:46pm October 8, 2009)

All these charts on your characters that you keep, how do you organize them? On your computer, a three ring binder? Do you also keep a timeline to make sure things fall into place at the right time?
(
Sheila Corriveau 4:57pm October 8, 2009)

Hi, Dawn! Cool, that's what's fun about throwing out a question like that. I love seeing creativity in action!

Thanks, Lisa! You're entered!

Sheila, glad you liked book one! Hm, I like your explanation of the substance, too. And you're very close with the antidote (comes into play in book 3). You must be psychic! Aren't those covers great?!

Ann, buying and reading books is a good vice. You support authors, the economy, and you get hours of entertainment. :)

Diane, Kewl!

Tracey, I think these days you have to have a really sharp video and the distribution to get it out there. Even then, how much they help sales...who knows?

Sheila, I have a big chart my husband printed out on blueprint paper that I can look at in a glance. I also have a 3-ring binder with pictures and each character's profile. I use a calendar for timelines, jotting down all significant events. It's a lot, but hopefully it keeps me straight!
(
Jaime Rush 5:38pm October 8, 2009)

I LOVE series books! Love not losing friends and having to start all over!
(
Kelli Jo Calvert 5:50pm October 8, 2009)

I am writing my first book and still feeling my way around how to organize and keep track of my characters. Hopefully I will have a system and my creative process down by the time I finish this book, making any future books easier. Thanks for sharing your process with us.
(
Sheila Corriveau 5:51pm October 8, 2009)

I really enjoy reading series books. So fun to read when the characters are carried over from one book to the next
(
Teresa Ward 7:01pm October 8, 2009)

It sounds like quite the exciting series. Am now curious what the mysterious substance given to the parents was....
(
G. Bisbjerg 7:20pm October 8, 2009)

I loved, loved, loved the first book in this series! Ordered the second one as soon as I saw it was going to be released, and can't wait to get started on it. I love to read series and, as you mentioned, catch up with 'friends' from earlier books. BTW, have several friends reading this series now as well!
(
Kara Conrad 7:48pm October 8, 2009)

I read the first book in the series and I thought it was very good. Like everyone else it's going on my wish list.
(
Sherry Strode 9:40pm October 8, 2009)

I've been longing to lay my hands on these books! You have excellent covers Jamie, i Love them!
You are a new Author for me. Hope i can have my chance to read one of your great works :) I'm sure i'll more fall in love with your works ^_*
(
Mariska Hadienns 10:06pm October 8, 2009)

I love creepy paranormal stories, this one sounds great!! I think the Offsprings parents were probably hooked on Red Bull :P
(
Mary Lynn Hayes 11:30pm October 8, 2009)

A big change for you. Am sure you are enjoying it. I used to wonder why authors wrote under a variety of names, but now understand. It can be confusing to pick up a book by a favorite authors and end up in an entirely different genre.
Good luck.
(
Patricia Barraclough 12:13pm October 9, 2009)

I have never read your books but I look forward to reading them after reading your blog today.
Hoping over to your site to find out more.
(
Gigi Hicks 9:46am October 9, 2009)

Kelli and Teresa, I hear you! I feel that from the writer's point of view, that I get to keep hanging out with the characters I love. And they keep surprising me, too, as they grow and change. Lucas and Amy's relationship keeps coming in to the books as a background thread.

Sheila, one other tip I learned, and I do this with stand-alone books, too: keep track of a) what the reader knows and b) what the characters know. This has proven invaluable to me in not having a character discover something they already figured out in the first book. Yikes!

G. Bisjerb, I was curious about what the substance was, too, which was kind of funny because I'm a planner. But I liked not figuring out everything, and what it became really surprised me and opened up a whole new angle to the series! Pope was another enigma. He appeared in the first book, but I wasn't sure who he was or how he played in. Now he's¡Kwell, I can't say, but it ties into the substance and is really cool.

Kara, kewl, thanks! ::SMILE:: And thanks for getting your friends to read, too.

Sherry, thanks!

Mariska, kewl! Yes, I've been blessed by the cover gods ļ

Mary Lynn, LOL on Red Bull!

Patricia, very true. These books have a somewhat different feel, especially from my last Tina Wainscott books, which were psychological suspense.

Thanks, Gigi!

I'll pop back in again, but wanted to thank everyone for posting and giving me lots of interesting fodder. This has been fun!
(
Jaime Rush 11:27am October 9, 2009)

These look so good! I will be watching for both of these.

I certainly love series, because I usually want to know what happened to the characters after "their" book is finished. It's a good thing that you discovered your love of writing this one at least. lol
(
Sigrun Schulz 5:49pm October 11, 2009)

I love the cover! I look forward in reading it.
