New Release: The Burning of Isobel Key

We've reached October. In celebration of Halloween, I plan to have a few treats for you, including a guest post from the lovely Jess Fortunato and maybe even an original short. To start the month off right, I'm showcasing a new novel, just released on Monday. Grab you kindles, download it and enjoy!

The Burning of Isobel Key

New Adult/Contemporary

When Lou travels to Scotland, she’s a mess.  She’s twenty-six, unemployed, and unsure of herself.  It doesn’t help that she’s traveling with Tammy, her best friend, who is everything Lou is not.
At first, the trip pushes Lou towards the brink of depression, but then she meets Brian, a handsome local tour guide.  When Brian tells the tourists about the countless witches burned in Scotland, Lou starts to listen.  And when she discovers information about Isobel Key, one of the victims of the seventeenth century, Lou finds renewed purpose.
She sets out to learn the truth of the condemned witch, but she isn’t prepared for the knowledge that waits for her.  Lou must face her demons if she has any hope of righting the wrongs of the past.
THE BURNING OF ISOBEL KEY, available from Barnes & Noble and Amazon Fall 2012.
Paperback: $14.95
E-Book (Kindle or Nook): $2.99

  1. What a great book to feature for the start of October! That cover is absolutely compelling, just like the premise. I love how the main character is unemployed and unsure of herself. I can relate to that a lot right now, so it only makes the book all that much more appealing to me. Just added it to my wishlist!

    1. I can't wait to hear how you like it, Heather!

  2. Thanks for the feature, Noree! :)
