Today I have 2 teasers from Melissa Pearl’s new book Betwixt!
But first here is a little teaser from GLIMMER, A Delaney’s Gift Bonus Short Story that just released yesterday.
THE RIVER’S ICY fingers reach for me, slithering around my legs and arms until it has me in its firm grip. My body is pulled underwater by the strong current, and my limbs are too tired to fight it any longer. Water laps over my head, rushing into my face and cutting off my breath. I claw at the frigid liquid, but it slips between my fingers and swirls around me until I’m dizzy. Fish-scented water swims on my tongue and clogs my throat. Closing my mouth, I struggle to keep my panic in check.

Now for the teasers from Betwixt!
“Am I a ghost? Have I died already?
No, I can’t have. It was like this this morning. It all feels the same. Maybe my mind’s left my body. Maybe I’m caught in this weird sub-reality, half-dead half-alive.
A shiver races down my spine. Half-dead… and probably not that far off fully dead unless I find help.”
“Mom.” I stand right next to her. Maybe if I’m super close she’ll be able to hear me. “It’s me. It’s Nicole. I need your help. You have to find me. I’m hurt. I don’t know where I am or what’s happened to me, but I need you to keep trying. Please, call someone else.”
I reach for the phone and my fingers pass straight through it.
So not loving the ghost thing.
“Mom, please.” My voice quivers.
Betwixt Book Description:
Beautiful, wild-chid Nicole Tepper is hit by a car and left for dead. But when she wakes the next morning, Nicole finds herself in bed without a scratch. Perhaps she was more intoxicated than usual, as her mother is giving her the silent treatment and her friends are ignoring her as well.
Things take a turn for the weird when Nicole soon discovers she is actually hovering between life and death. Her body is lying in the forest while her spirit is searching for anyone who can hear her. Unfortunately the only person who can is Dale Finnigan, the guy she publicly humiliated with a sharp-tongued insult that has left him branded.
Desperate, Nicole has no choice but to haunt Dale and convince the freaked-out senior to help her. Will he find her body before it’s too late? Or will the guy who tried to kill her with his car, beat him there and finish her off before anyone finds out?
