Monday, December 14, 2015

I would very much like to welcome both Kimber Leigh Wheaton, author of the young adult Paranormal Thrillers, Tortured Souls and Twisted Sisters and The Orion Circle, a Paranormal Investigation Society that explores all manner of supernatural or paranormal occurrences. The Orion Circle returns in Twisted Sisters - the thrilling sequel to Ms. Wheaton's award-winning Tortured Souls. Thank you so much again for stopping by Emeraldfire's Bookmark, Ms. Wheaton and Orion Circle members: Rebecca Travers; Carl Loughton; Raven Sawyer; Blake Warner; Kassandra 'Kacie' Ramsey; Logan Finley and Daniel Westin. Welcome to Emeraldfire's Bookmark, ladies and gentlemen!

Meet Kimber Leigh Wheaton

Kimber Leigh Wheaton is a bestselling YA author with a soft spot for sweet romance. In addition to writing, she works as an editor for two publishers, as well as select indie authors. She is married to her soul mate, has a teenage son, and shares her home with three dogs and lots of dragons. Kimber Leigh is addicted to romance, video games, superheroes, villains, and chocolate - not necessarily in that order. (If she has to choose, she’ll take a chocolate covered superhero!) 

Winner of the 2014 Rising Star Award at the BTS Red Carpet Awards in NOLA and a Silver Medal for YA Mystery/Horror in the 2015 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards.

Synopsis of Tortured Souls:

Sometimes Rest in Peace isn't an option.

Kacie Ramsey sees ghosts - and it's ruining her life. Her mother left, her father blames her, and no matter how hard she tries, she can't keep the ghosts away. Now a new power has emerged. Nightly visions of grisly murders and a relentless predator draw her to the brink of insanity. 

When the phantom appears at a party, Kacie's longtime crush, Logan, saves her. He invites her to join the Orion Circle, a group of supernatural hunters with chapters in schools all over the country. Through the Circle, Kacie learns to embrace her spiritual powers, and for the first time in her life she feels in control rather than a victim.

But the Foxblood Demon will not give up so easily. A demented serial killer in life who trapped the souls of the thirteen children he murdered, imprisoning them within the walls of his mansion. Now in death, he plots his return while drawing power from the pure souls of the children. He recognizes something in Kacie he's never seen before - a medium powerful enough to provide a vessel for his tainted soul. 

Kacie can't ignore the tortured souls of the children crying out to her every night. With Logan at her side, she will fight the Foxblood Demon. But can they banish this powerful phantom, or will Kacie lose not only her body, but her eternal soul to the monster.

Synopsis of Twisted Sisters:

It’s a child’s toy - what could go wrong?

While playing with a spirit board, two sorority sisters summon the vindictive spirits of three women brutally murdered by a psychopath. Join Logan, Kacie, and the rest of the Orion Circle as they delve into the disturbing events of the past to find the key to freeing the spirits.

But this isn’t any ordinary haunting. These ghosts were banished before, and now they have returned more powerful than anyone could have imagined. Anger breeds hatred and hatred leads to darkness - these phantoms are on the verge of losing their last spark of humanity and becoming completely lost to the shadows.

Can Logan and Kacie convince the tortured souls to embrace the light and move on, or will the spirits succumb to the hypnotic pull of evil, leading to an eternity of torment and suffering?

Coming to Amazon on 25 October 2015!
