The Warlock Case Files

It's tough being a warlock in Washington, DC. Magic doesn't pay the bills, and sometimes you have to take on other jobs. 

I'm Dafydd Smith, and I'm a warlock. No, not the "sold my soul to the devil" type warlock. The "male witch" kind. (Everyone gets those confused, so don't feel bad.) 

One day I'm minding my own business, heading out for a bite to eat after a hard day exorcising ghosts, when I run into a vampire. Yeah, you heard that right. A vampire. With his fangs in some guy's neck. It was kind of sexy and scary all at the same time. 

What did I do? Well, read on, and I'll tell you how I got rid of a ghost haunting a vampire. And if you enjoy that one, there will be more stories. Hanging around with a vampire appears bring on all sorts of supernatural stuff. Who would have thought it?

You might be wondering about this new book, Buried But Not Gone, that'e been posted recently. It's not about me, but it is about another warlock who lives in the DC area. He ends up being a buddy of mine, and I do have a guest starring role in his story. I hope you like him as much as you like me.

This series has been on haitus, but it's back. Apparently the woman who writes about me has figured out how to juggle writing and a day job. So check out my newest adventure, The Case of the Collapsing Building!

Arcamira

When the elfin princess, Atalanta, is snatched from her palace and a vampire crashes a ball at the human castle, all of Arcamira is on high alert. 

To uphold their alliance with the elves and to satisfy their desire for adventure, the young human royals, Andromeda, Felicity, Michael, and Andrew, set out with a search party to find Atalanta.

The young warriors quickly find themselves facing down a monster unlike anything they've ever seen before. The vampires and werewolves they thought were nearly extinct are rising up under the banner of Tyrannus, a hybrid of the two fearsome species. He's raising an army in a campaign to rid Arcamira of humans and elves, and it's up to the young royals and the friends they meet along the way to stop him.

Ghosts of Eagle Valley

Ask anyone in Eagle Valley, Virginia, and they’ll be happy to tell you the history of their little town. After all, it’s a fascinating story. Way back in the 1700s, some of the town’s bravest young men marched off to fight in the Revolutionary War. Later, Eagle Valley’s mill brought the American Dream right to their doorsteps. During the Civil War, families were split between staying loyal to Virginia or re-joining the Union. Even as recently as World War II, Eagle Valley locals fought for victory half a world away. The town of Eagle Valley is proud of its long history, and even more proud of the ancestors that built their town.

Of course, if you ask the ghosts that still haunt Eagle Valley’s streets, you just might hear another side of the story. In this four-story collection, the ghosts of Eagle Valley set the record straight. Every town has its secrets, and these skeletons are ready to come out of their closets.

Ghosts of Eagle Valley is the companion short story collection to Ellen Smith’s debut novel, Reluctant Cassandra. Available only on Channillo for Charity, proceeds from Ghosts of Eagle Valley will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. 

Chrysalis and Clan

This series is the complete first part of a novel, Chrysalis and Clan, that is due to be published in March 2017.

*This series contains explicit content, and some trigger warnings. Please be aware it is not for everyone.*

 

There is a war festering that threatens life as we know it, but it is a war we will never see. It is cloaked beneath the skin of our loved ones, our neighbors, and the strangers on the corner. And it is all consuming.

 

Beth is successful, grounded, and happy. That is until a disasterous visit with her mother, Ava, who is suffering from dementia. This visit, the final visit with her mother, plants seeds of doubt in Beth's mind about who she really is or, rather, what she really is. Beth chooses to indulge her doubt and curiosity by entertaining her mother's ludicrous claims.

 

But there is another side to the story. A side that not only believes Ava's tales of lineage, but is hell-bent on stopping them.

 

Chrysalis and Clan is a tapestry of ghosts, of extraterrestrial creatures, and of demons that will make you shudder each time you see the back of your eyelids.

 

Which side are you rooting for?

Madness Intact

A young woman undergoes various physical and emotional changes as she clings desperately to her insanity, all the while watching the relationships around her crumble and fall. As time carries on, new truths are revealed and old secrets emerge with the arrival of the nefarious "they". Watch and witness a verifiable plunge into the depths of madness and mania. 

Allie's Choice

Allie comes home when her grandmother dies to finish the B&B that her grandmother had planned. While working on the house she finds a wooden box and opens a door to the past which changes her family in ways she could never imagine.

The Last Minuters

When recent divorcee Margaret Ayinger decides to end her life, she wants to go out in style.  For those who have done their homework and for whom money is no object there is only one place for that: The Precipice Hotel.  Like a hospice for the terminally eccentric, it has stood for over a hundred years in a region plagued by yearly forest fires.  Upon arrival, Margaret finds the old place nothing like what was advertised. 

Oh sure, the staff are friendly.  And the food?  Positively four star!  Something about it though just doesn't sit well with her.  For instance, the people who randomly swan dive from their balconies late at night, the impossible thing living in her bedroom, and the automatons in black body stockings roaming the halls.  Oh, and the purple monster named Fred who lives in the gorge.  

Lot 149

“It’s just a light flickering, must be faulty wiring or something – isn’t it?”

Lot 149 is a paranormal story about Keira, a recently divorced woman who purchases a decaying old farmhouse with a truly spectacular history. Country living, a tidy divorce settlement and a job promotion that allowed telecommuting – this farmhouse would be a fresh start for both Keira and her son Tad, a break they so badly needed.

"Sure it needs work -- but don't we all?"

Leaving a big city job behind, Kiera embraces country living and is intent on raising pasture-fed pork and free-range chickens and the latest developments in organic farming; however, she soon realizes how much work is involved in restoring the farmhouse. To help with repairs, she calls in Frank, a local handyman and pest control guy.

“It’s a house with a history, that’s all. Plays tricks with your mind. Most old houses are like that.”

As Keira and Frank work on the house, several unnerving things begin to happen, and the secrets of the house begin to revel themselves. One of the locals, Joe Adams, fills Keira in on the previous owners:

They had two boys, long time ago, one of them had fits or somethin’.

Ain’t nobody seen that boy for decades. Most of us though they put him away –

He had a thing for cattle – bit of a freak, strange things always happened when he was around.

Ol’ Johnston down the way said he did in his whole herd, but nobody could prove nothing. And then there was the Smith child –

Now, decades later, Keira is the full owner in possession of the old farmhouse on Lot 149.

Hellbound

"I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes. Then they will know that I am the Lord, when I lay my vengeance upon them.” -Ezekiel 25:17

Little does anyone know, the end of the world is about to begin in a small town in southern Indiana, and a sarcastic diner-owner named John may be the world’s only hope to keep from being sucked into Hell…

After a large sinkhole devours Ezekiel, Indiana’s historic gazebo in the middle of the night, John awakens to discover that nearly all the citizens of his small town have begun acting out their most prominent of the seven deadly sins, while those not affected have packed up and abandoned the town with little to no notice at all. Over the next few days, John and his best friend navigate their way through people they once knew acting in unimaginable ways, a group of Bible-thumping citizens convinced the sinners of Ezekiel must pay the ultimate price, and a TV evangelist offering his expertise as a way to cleanse the town of evil… for a price, all while realizing John may be the only person on the planet with the ability to stop the town, and eventually the rest of the world, from going straight to Hell.

The Power Of Creatures

2168, the last human survivors have fled to a remote island in the Pacific Ocean. Jeffery Reid has received intel that a missile will end all human life tonight.

The Knowledge of Creatures It's been a long wait for Kate and Alex who has helped each hero with their mission, now it's their turn but are they up to the task? Can they really stop the extinction of the human race? 

Crossing the Streams

Non-human romance. Tarot-powered difference engines. The bureaucracy of the gate to Hell. These and more appear in this anthology of strange stories by Jeremy Zimmerman. This anthology collects five genre-bending tales from fantasy to steampunk to cyberpunk.

“I won’t spoil the ending, but I will offer that the imagery in this tale is so wonderful that the settings sometimes transported me away from the main character’s conflict. The scenes in this story, like Impressionist art, consist of ordinary subjects displayed in mesmerizingly vacillating light. Whereas I usually care most about plot and about character development, these descriptions were so robust that I would gladly read additional pages of Zimmerman’s work just to reimmerse myself in his language.”
– KJ Hannah Greenberg, Tangent, regarding “A Crazy Kind of Love”

“Unchained Melody is a sharp, beautiful blow to the heart. Zimmerman wrote a heroine who is recognizable; a woman who is defining herself, on her terms.”
– Lillian Cohen-Moore, author of The Imperial Companion, and Hatavat Chalom

Whispers in the Spanish Moss

Strange tales abound in the steamy south when the full moon casts lacy shadows through the spanish moss and the owl calls from deep in the swamp. Sit back and enjoy six chilling tales of phantoms and some decidedly more earthly creatures guaranteed to raise the hairs on the back of your neck.

Realms of Shadows

Most humans live their lives ignorant of the world around them, a world hidden within the shadows. The majority will live out their lives without ever catching a glimpse of this reality, but a few will find themselves waking up to it. In this world, mysterious creatures wonder about, fighting an ancient war from the dawn of time. Some of these beings seek to destroy humanity, others, seek to protect it. These are the stories of the few who find themselves thrown unwittingly into this new reality. 

Encounters

We all have secrets, but some of them are darker than others. Some of them have teeth.

There are hundreds carrying those secrets around us every day: a vampiric race living in the shadows, biding their time until the moment comes to make themselves known to the world. This race, the Silver, are as varied in their pleasures and vices as humanity. Through the millennia they colour our lives with fantasy, with romance, with wonder and with horror. 

So how well do you really know the people with whom you surround yourself? Your friends, your colleagues, acquaintances and lovers? And if you can't even be sure of them, then how can you ever trust a stranger to be what he appears?

Encounters is a series of short-story prequels to Josie Jaffrey's post-apocalyptic paranormal romance novels: the Solis Invicti quadrilogy (available on Amazon). 

I Was a Teenage Ghost Hunter

Moody sixteen-year-old barista Devin Mulwray is doing his best to ignore bizarre manifestations at his job in the chilly Northern California town of Arcata. Already teased about his recurrent ‘phase-outs’, the last thing he needs is to get pegged as a guy who sees ghosts. It doesn’t help his state of mind that his boss is a sarcastic slacker, his single dad is always on the road with clients and local occult fan girl Nayra is spreading ‘ghost boy’ rumors about him online.

But when violent paranormal activity badly spooks teens at an abandoned estate, Devin’s pushed into investigating by his eccentric friends Clive, a budding composer, and Rex, a tech head excited by ghost hunting gadgetry. At first reluctant to get involved, Devin’s encouraged when Emily, one of the more empathetic girls at Grey Bluff High, is impressed with his daring.

Together the friends explore the creepy Rousten manor. But as the only person able to perceive the manifestations, Devin soon finds himself going one-on-one against a powerful spirit who attacks the locals and infiltrates Devin’s own dreams.

Devin must face his fear of confronting the spirit world and get to the bottom of the hauntings before the specter unleashes more havoc on him and his friends.

--- Reviews ---

"These characters are real! They're rounded, they talk like human beings and not TV drama characters, and they've got issues. Bigger issues than I can imagine, sounds like. I'm looking forward to reading the full book."

Zack Jordan, author of The Life Interstellar.

http://www.sfsignal.com/archives/2016/03/read-excerpt-space-opera-life-interstellar-zack-jordan/

...

"Just when you think a female protagonist can't possibly be more badass or have more attitude than Jessica Jones, author Rebekka Leber rolls out Max Lucas to prove you wrong. The first three excerpts take you on a ride you can't possibly see coming, and leave you hanging with questions you're dying to have answered. All of Shiva's thumbs way up!"

Elayna Mae Darcy, author of They Are the Last.

https://www.inkshares.com/books/they-are-the-last-7039

...

"It’s tricky to juxtapose different tones in any type of writing.  And Rebekka is doin’ it WELL.  This is a skillful blend of mythological dark fantasy with razor sharp contemporary wit.  The protagonist is realistically flawed, charming, and intriguing.  Rebekka crafts visceral and cinematic imagery in both modern and ancient settings.  She has a mastery of authentic, organic dialogue in both the present and the past.  You’ll be on the floor laughing at the effortless humor one minute, and in awe at the power of the gods in the next.  I’m going to enjoy watching it progress, and can’t wait until it’s finished.  Reading this is definitely worth your time.  Read it, recommend it, and show it some Inkshares love.  This one’s going to be a great ride. "

P.H. James, author of The Seventh Aspect

https://www.inkshares.com/books/the-seventh-aspect

...

"This book has me giddy in all the right ways. It blends the real with the fantastical, while serving up a hefty dose of attitude. Delving into the territories of religion, mythology, alcoholism, and conspiracy is no easy task, but Leber handles them with ease. I've immensely enjoyed what I've read so far. The lead is especially a great joy to read, with her complexity and rawness, but also because of her humor! If you like strong women, complex characters, sarcasm, and grit, you're going to want this book."

Krishna's Counsel (The Moksha Trilogy #2)

KRISHNA'S COUNSEL sweeps you back to sleepy south India in the 1960s, right into the tumultuous life of Pia, a brilliant and defiant teenager whose world disintegrates under the brutal sword-thrust of an eerie death. It is the loving gift of the magnificent view of eastern philosophy - particularly a poignant scene in the Bhagavad Gita, when Lord Krishna advises the quailing warrior Prince Arjuna to pick up his great bow Gandiva and forever rout the corrupt foe, regardless of the consequences - that saves her from certain self-annihilation.

Many years later, now a gorgeous woman living in frenetic New York City, Pia is tracked down and coaxed to return to India to deal with an insistent throng of old ghosts. But horror strikes yet again - and she is compelled by supernatural agents to heed Lord Krishna's timeless advice as she finds herself on the trail of a charming psychopath who will stop at nothing to kill her.

Intrepid

In the early days, four of the Paragons, the beings of the Infinite, created a race from each of the elements in the physical realm- Fire, Water, Earth, and Air. These races became the ancestors of the Pyran, Deryn, Jordan, and Soren lands. A few within the Paragons were angered that they were not chosen to create their own beings that would honor and worship them, so a Paragon named Valen Ral, the essence of Order, attempted to create beings from those already in existence. Their essences were torn in the process, creating the Banished Races- Basts, Abyssals, Nyx, and Vega- monstrous cousins to the creations of the Elemental Paragons who stalked the outer reaches of the realms.

Over thousands of years, each race developed from hunters and gatherers into a complex, industrial society. Once they began to introduce technology their dependence on the Paragons waned, and eventually they only continued to worship those Paragons whose secrets they could not unravel yet, like the Paragon of Magic.

Angered over mortal’s impudence towards the Paragons, Valen Ral leads a revolt against the mortals to punish them for forsaking their gods and instead depending on machines. But, much to his suprise, not all the Paragons support him. Many Paragons still support man, and believe that technology will never be the answer to all the mortal’s needs The Paragons that follow Valen Ral abandon the mortals, reaching out to their monstrous creations. Those who do not support Valen Ral by turning away from the mortals are cast out of the Infinite Realm in a fiery expulsion.

The story that follows is the struggle of several characters who now live in the fallout, including a capricious Imperatrix who is the progeny of the realm's most famous fairytale romance, a cursed mermaid forced to live on land for treachery against her kind, a desert born pirate who escaped to the high seas with his bound genie companion, and a street urchin con artist pulled out of prison to serve as the sentinel to the new Paragon of Magic.
