True Connection



Look at that beautiful work of art from from the wonderfully talented Regina Wamba at www.maeidesign.com
So, I have a teaser, it’s just another short one. I’ll get a longer one put together in a few weeks.
It’s more than a fight for my life. It’s a fight for my soul and my soul mate.
Jazzy is a not so average coffee-loving teen, coping with the deaths of her father and sister, dealing with her famous uncle’s fans, an overprotective big brother, and a depressed mother, all while trying to make friends at her new school-her old school’s rival. She meets a gorgeous green-eyed hottie who turns out to be more than human, and more than just some high school crush. On her first day at the new school she unknowingly enraged a very dangerous breed of demon who wants her soul or life as payment. With the help of some fantastical friends and protectors, she remains safe. Until what remains of her family is put in danger. Can Jazzy save her family, her life, her soul and soul mate, or will all be lost?

“What class do you have next?” he asks me. Dang, I have to use my puddle brain.
“Uhh…”Shoot! Why didn’t I take the time to memorize this thing?
“She’s got study hall with Mrs. Kling.” Skeeter answers for me. How exactly does she know that? I look at her. “Sweetie, your schedule is in your hand, and close your mouth, you don’t wanna drool.” She whispers before walking over to the group of kids standing by the door. That leaves me alone with Mr. Brain-Freeze-Inducer, himself.
I hope everyone enjoys this!

Character Intro

So I have a special message to share. It’s from the main character in True Connection, Jazzy. Here’s what she has to say.
‘Hey guys! I’m under strict orders to keep this short, sweet and to the point. I’m not allowed to give you too many details *Ahem…Rachel…* So I want to tell you a little bit about myself. I’m absolutely in love with music! Music inspires me to draw or paint. That is where my true passion is. At the moment I’m drawing some children playing in the park. Anyway, I love to read, I have a library of books in my room. I have a touch of OCD. Everything has it’s own place and I’m constantly fixing the kitchen. My uncle is terrible at putting dishes away and has been banned from doing it ever again. I enjoy school, more than I probably should. I have bad days like everyone else but for the most part I really love being at school and having to challenge myself to complete assignments. I can handle school better than dealing with the challenges outside of school. That would be one of the topics I have to not mention so no more on that I promise! I absolutely love being near water. The beach is one of my favorite places of all times. The smells, the sounds, to feeling, it’s just amazing. Well, I need to go, my brother is ready to teach me how to parallel park! I hope we use cones, or boxes this time. I’m sure my uncle would appreciatte not having to fix another dent in his bumper. Oops! I’ll catch up with you guys later! Maybe then I’ll be allowed to give you a peek into my world!’
I hope you enjoyed the little introduction Jazzy gave. There will be more character introductions, as soon as they stop fighting over who goes next. ;)
News on the cover reveal? It will probably be happening at the beginning of November. I’m so excited and cannot wait to share it with you! It might happen sooner! Keep your eyes peeled :)

A little introduction

So, I want to introduce myself, I am Rachel Walter and I’m going to be realeasing my first book soon. I’m not sure what you would like to know about me, so I’m going to move along and introduce my book a little bit.
My book is the first in a series, True Connection from my Soul Mate Series. It’s Young Adult Paranormal. I’m sure you’d like to hear a little bit more about the book right? Well you’re in luck!
True Connection focuses on a teenage girl. Here is the description:
It’s more than a fight for my life. It’s a fight for my soul and my soul mate.
My name is Jazzy and I’m just your average, everyday teenager, until one night a few months ago tragedy struck my family by the hands of a drunk driver. Now my mom, uncle, brother and I are left picking up the pieces of our broken hearts. As a result my brother and I moved in with our uncle and ended up switching schools as well. All I want is to feel normal again and for everyone to stop treating me like a porcelain doll. I’m not made of glass, I will not break.
For me, switching schools late in the year to our rival school was practically a sin all its own. Looking back, I can tell you that it was just the beginning. From being stalked to nightmares, this move was affecting me in more ways than one. It wasn’t all bad of course. I found an awesome, yet unusual, group of friends and a very gorgeous green eyed hottie to occupy my time with. Then things began to get weird. For the most part it was good but sooner, rather than later, the weird turned into impending doom sitting on a precipice begging to be pushed.
Things were brought to light that made me question everything I thought I knew, maybe not everything, but close enough. You know like when you’re a kid and you have a bad dream and your dad says, ‘Oh Sweetie, you’re ok, the monsters can’t hurt you. Go back to sleep,’ you believe it. How about in school, when you begin learning about Greek Mythology and your teacher says, ‘These stories are all myths. The Greek Gods and other mythical creatures did not and do not exist.’ You believe that as well. So how would you react if you were told one day that everything you’ve been taught thus far isn’t as black and white as it seems? That there is this huge grey area, and you’re living in it.

So, I’m going to leave you with this for now. If you have any questions for me feel free to ask! I will be introducing a few of the characters to you all with in the next few weeks and Cover Reveal will be happening soon!
