Thank you so much, Marlene, for your stellar work editing my debut novel, Almost Demon. I felt so comfortable with you and your work it gave me the extra confidence I needed knowing that my book was reviewed with a professional eye. Your timing was great, too and am taking book pre-orders now. Almost Demon will be published this Halloween.
A short introduction
Believe in ghosts? angels? demons?
"Almost Demon" will catapult you into the world of Gemma Pope - high school senior, car crash survivor, turned reluctant demon summoner.
The last thing Gemma Pope expects to study in the after-school book club is demon etiquette but that is exactly what she has to do to succeed as a summoner and save her hometown.
Since taking the blame for the car accident that claimed the lives of her twin brother and two of her best friends, she s been seeing things. Dark shadows, opaque, menacing, multiplying.
The clock starts ticking when the local mild-mannered librarian suffers a psychotic break and pulls a gun on her reading circle. People are dying in disasters and wars all over the world. Gemma s dad is getting weird, her classmates are becoming violent, and the darkness surrounding Harrisport is getting thicker.
Does she trust hot English Lit teacher Mr. Flynn or Ian, the mysterious new kid in town, who has knowledge beyond his years and access to other dimensions?
It is only when the gates to hell are opened, that Gemma learns who her real friends are.
Discover what lies just beyond the veil of humanity in the sleepy town of Harrisport.
