Cursed Love Entries Needed

Author:  Clinton Siegle

I wanted to share a little snippet.

“I loved her with all my heart, that’ll teach me. Love is fickle for the best of people, but for a poor boy, love is even worse than being poor.”

Sounds like the beginnings of a Cured Love Story to me.

 

Keep the entries coming.

Cursed Love

valentinesday2013-heartpictures (1)

My third favorite holiday is coming soon.

Valentines Day

In the Paranormal world we strive for the falling in and out of Love, that pain and pleasure captured in words. It’s the reason and the purpose for flipping to the next page. But isn’t this true of real life? We are motivated by love. When we fall we fly high wanting to share this feeling with the world and when we  fall out of love;  we shut ourselves away from the world and struggle to find the words to communicate.

Who amongst us has not had a broken heart or have been a straight-up fool for love?

Please don’t forget the contest ends soon. I’m waiting to hear about your Cursed Love. I’m hoping its fiction, but then isn’t fiction born from real life experiences?

Cursed Love

I’m starting to get some responses in and I’m loving the twists. Cursed Love has such a special way of branding an individual soul.

There’s still time, the only way to heal….. Well lets be honest, there is no healing from a cursed love. Its all about how do we continue to live….

In the #HotSeat Meryt from Eternal Traces by Shonda Brock #ColorofLoveHop @shondabrock #PNR #Giveaway

 

Karissa,

Meryt says thank you for the interview. She’s been threatening me lately to finish her 3rd book. You know how head strong characters are, they always want their stories told. I want to thank you and your friends for hosting Color of Love Hop 2017. I’m often asked about writing/publishing and blogging. How difficult is it in this modern age with so much technology? I liken this business to a tree falling in the woods. If a tree falls in the woods and no one hears it fall, did it make a noise?
You ladies are creating a platform for writers and readers to hear that tree fall. You have a very special group of writers telling their special stories. How outstanding is that!!!!

Thank you again and always….
Stay Inspired,
Shonda

Hello readers. Today we’re excited to have Meryt  from Eternal Traces by Shonda Brock in the Hot Seat for #ColorofLove2017 celebration.

You’re welcome to our blog, Meryt. Thank you for hanging out with us today. We look forward to delving into your mind and finding out more about you. So let’s get started.

Meryt Brownstone is her birth name. When her mother named her she thought it would be a perfect compliment to her daughter’s beautiful brown skin. She had high dreams for the curly headed, sweet girl child, but unfortunately life already had a plan for Meryt. Sweet could only be used if you are into a hot-tempered, poor communicator, extremely driven woman who is only open to showing emotions when death is near and even then she prefers the company of a bottle.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

A restful night of sleep, and a…

FEATURED BOOK

Eternal Traces New Book Cover copy

“The coming to consciousness is not a discovery of some new thing; it is a long and painful return to that which has always been.”

                                   By Helen Luke

Eternal Traces

Dr. Meryt Brownstone is a talented cardiologist living a quite low-key life at a local hospital where she spends her extra hours experimenting with transfusion patients and synthetic blood looking for a remedy or at least a solution to extend their lives.

As single woman living in upstate New York, her lifestyle doesn’t allow for the luxury of getting involved with people because when she’s not plunking around in the lab she’s involved with a man; first name Uncle, last name Sam.

As an ex-military officer who still works as an undercover mercenary for the government, this means personal drama is something she can do without and living under the radar is expected.

But her solitude is broken when Dr. Fritz Daniels mysteriously appears, seemingly drawn by her blood research, and joins her in the laboratory with different ideas. To add more complications, Fritz’s blue-eyed devilish brother, mesmerizes Meryt in a way she can’t ignore.

Love may be within Meryt’s reach, but she is perplexed by his odd behavior. Meryt isn’t the only one with secrets and hidden agendas.

When she is called to duty on a secret mission in Sudan the adventure begins and old secrets, as well as, lost secrets come to light. Soon Meryt is catapulted down a mysterious path—a bloody path she may have traveled before.

Thousands of years ago in ancient Africa, Nitocris fights for her nation and for a man she loved. Parallel events shape both of their lives.

Meryt is in a race against time and unknown enemies. If she can’t figure out her true mission soon, she will be forced to relive her gruesome past in which she lost everyone and everything she has ever loved

#1MinFiction: “Crazy Was On The Menu And I Was His Main Course” #fiction — Simply Marquessa

This piece was written for Nortina’s #1MinFiction Challenge at Lovely Curses This Week’s Prompt: “Thanks but no thanks…” Crazy was on the menu and I was his main course tonight. I kept my body still and my breathing under control. Under the pillow, my hand firmly grasped the hammer that my handyman had accidentally left […]
