Faythe Reclaimed Blog Tour

Genre: paranormal romance
Format: pPaperback (257 pages) & ebook
Publisher: Tulipe Noire Press (
May, 2012)  

Blurb: Running through a strange forest with a bloodthirsty demon hot on her heels wasn’t Taylor’s idea of a rockin’ evening. Then again, neither was soaring backward through time and space. Time travel chafed and left a rank, nasty aftertaste. So, when she finds herself floundering amidst a sea of Commandment-loving holy rollers who fling accusations of witchcraft and bedevilment like hotcakes in a diner, finding her way home jumps to the top of her to do list. Too bad she can’t remember who she is or where she came from. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Taylor realizes she’s fallen for Gabriel, the mysterious Latin warlock who came to her rescue.

Battling an identity crisis and lost in a time that’s not her own, Taylor is determined to find her way back to twenty-first century Hanaford Park. But first, she and Gabriel must work together to uncover the dark scourge lurking in the shadows of Salem Village, and in doing so, save their lives, and the lives of countless innocents from a lethal date with the hangman’s noose.

Guest Post:
Why I’ll never write a historical romance, and other frivolous information

I’m a paranormal girl, all the way. Well, that’s not entirely true. Sometimes I write sexy romantic suspense, but not very often, lol. What I love about the paranormal genre is that there are no rules. I’m not bound by the laws of our reality, or the truth of the past. I get to make shit up, and that’s like…really cool.

The same cannot be said about writing historical romance. And let me just say: I have a huge amount of respect for authors who write in this challenging genre. Faythe Reclaimed is a paranormal romance, however, the majority of the story takes place in 1692 Salem Village. While the majority of my characters are fictional, there are a few historical figures that show up throughout, and the setting is obviously a real place. While I in no way consider Hanaford Park #3 to be a historical novel, I did do a great deal of research––in comparison to my first two books––to make sure I accurately portrayed the setting and the few key historical figures that peppered the story.

It was a challenge! One I highly doubt I’ll try again, lol. In my straight paranormal novels, I use a ton of slang. While I derived a great deal of pleasure watching my female lead use words like “beeyotch” in front of her very confused Puritan friends, I certainly couldn’t allow my historical characters to speak that way. When my protagonist needed to relieve herself, I couldn’t send her to the nearest bathroom. I spent an entire afternoon researching the history of toilets in early colonial America. Ick!

Historical romance authors have the heavy task of not only creating a compelling fictional tale, but they also have to weave the tale throughout a real setting and manage to get the landscape, language, clothing styles, and behavioral choices correct, among many other things. That’s a lot of work, and I, for one, am completely in awe of those who choose to tackle such a daunting challenge.

I think I’ll stick with making shit up
