😛 okay… while I love my oil paint, I actually meant a word picture… today I have a quick look at JC Stockli and two of her word babies… we writer’s love our novels like any mother that has waited ten long months (yep, you heard right… the nine month model is just a lie they tell young women to help soften the blow) and then 19 hours of hard labor… we love them no matter what happens after they go out into the world (though we may blame them for the 19 hours panting and sweat if they get too far out of line)
anywho… here are the promised looks into JC and her two babies… but first, a few words from JC on their creation… happy wordage everyone, Tracey
The series was originally conceived as your standard PNR, just for fun, because I couldn’t get Lucca out of my head. I found deeper significance in Evie’s plot when I decided that I am drawn to the bad guy (a real villain that is, not a bad boy). So I let Lucca simmer a little. Then real life flooded my mind. What better villain than that which we find in real life? Drinking, hubris, drug abuse, they’re all so prominent these days. I’ve seen loved ones suffer, because addiction is a non-discriminatory epidemic. We love obsessing over the right kind of wrongs and look down on those who fall to darker demons. Arent demons seductive though? I knew Evie’s plot was perfect for this. I used real world issues to make the addict the hero. The more I plotted, the deeper the issues ran. I’ve had a lot of fun using fantasy as a foil.

“Fall from your graces into the depths.”
A dispirited addict learns that history repeats itself deep within hidden worlds. Evie Westvale is lost in the lifeless existence of her drug-laden fishing town.

He has not arrived by accident, and he is not alone.

BOOK TWO: THE SAVING
Received with 5-Star Reviews!
“I’ve fallen. JC Stockli grabs hold of your heart in this one, as well as inspires a few other responses I dare not mention.”
“J.C. Stockli did NOT disappoint… There are so many unexpected twists and turns throughout this book.”
“Have you found the light, or have you fallen?”
Evie’s life can never be the same as long as the Sempiternal continue to call out from the depths. She’s in limbo, too ignorant and afraid of the future Lucca has planned with her. She’s left Fallhaven, set adrift in a new city, and fighting more than withdrawal. Evan has become her constant companion, committed to assimilating Evie to a clean, mortal life, but at what cost?
Though he fights to help her conquer her demons, still she struggles with her cravings for Lucca’s nothingness. How can she move on when there can be no light to her days without the darkness of his nights?
