Shout Out, New Author!

When I started this blog, I wanted to focus on authors, books, and publishing.  Well, I want to give a “shout out” to a new author, Mary K. Norris.  Published by Crimson Romance, Mary’s first novel, a Paranormal Romance release, is Silent as the Grave.  

By the way, Crimson is the new ebook romance imprint from F&W Media, the parent company of Adams Media, Writer’s Digest, Writer’s Market, and others.  The Crimson line debuted on June 4, 2012.  New titles are released every week.  Silent as the Grave was released on July 9th.

Hard-edged Cali Crazar is determined to succeed in a world that’s been less than giving. Fierce and protective Felix Del Valle is sent to Cali’s aid when a member of his guild catches a glimpse of the future where Cali is endangered.

Felix is an Eraser, someone with the ability to make objects vanish with a wave of his hand. Cali is a Silencer, a manipulator of sound, and has no idea of the world she has yet to uncover. As if trying to get Cali to believe she possesses supernatural abilities isn’t hard enough, Felix must also explain to her that she is his destined soul mate. Even Felix has a hard time believing he’s met his Mirror Mate, but when he first lays eyes on her the attraction is instant. As is the danger.

Together they must stop a power hungry corporate owner who fuels his multi-million dollar company by exploiting others with supernatural abilities. But the clock is ticking when Felix and Cali discover that Cali is the next target and the man after her is looking to use her for more than just money. It turns out she could be his one chance at eternal youth and power.

Silent as the Grave is Book one in Mary’s Guild of Truth series.  She lives in Southern California.  Aside from creating wild, ingenious characters in her mystical world, she holds a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology (which, I suspect, contributed to all the physical action in her novel).

Mary is also a RWA member and a member of my online chapter, From the Heart Romance Writers.
