Magenta Shaman - now on Kindle!
The first episode in my short story series, Magenta Shaman is now available to download to Kindle.
It's an urban fantasy of just 7,000 words, and is the first of many, yet is complete in itself.
Please enjoy it, review it and let me know how you feel about Magenta herself.
The original cover artwork is by my husband Laurence Ranger, and has been adapted by me. We both hope you like it.
I must give my thanks to various members of Talkback for providing their research and voicing their experience in publishing to Kindle, particularly Midia, Sofyia, Carol, Jay, kateyanne and Mutley. Additionally I'm extremely grateful to Tony Cowin and Lee Hughes for such valuable and honest critiques, even though this is Urban Fantasy - outside of each of our usual horror genres.
My special thanks go to my husband Laurence for believing in Magenta and offering his own extensive esoteric knowledge and sublime artwork - Magenta is a part of both of us.
The following is the Amazon Product Description for Magenta Shaman:
A natural shaman by birth, Magenta Sweeney travels through trance-induced realms to deliver souls from demonic threat.
But Magenta also has an earthly life in modern-day Brighton, a strange and cosmopolitan city caught between the rolling hills of England and the Sussex coast where she lives with husband Tom.
Every journey Magenta takes is unique. Her intricate knowledge of herbs and poisons guides her when to heal - and when to kill. Yet before she faces each challenge she must meet with ancient and terrifying entities that will unlock her passage into other dimensions, but not without question - or sacrifice.
This first episode in the Magenta Shaman short story series finds Magentas relationship with Tom at breaking point as she takes greater risks to help those waiting for her. Under pressure from The Protegians, a mysterious group of earth-bound guardians, the shaman is sent on increasingly dangerous missions by their intermediary - a suave, arrogant man known only as The Judge.
Will Magenta survive the fight to expel a deadly demon from a foetid, volcanic pit? And will Tom stand idly by when he finds his wife's body, broken and lifeless on their bed?
