TALENT Celebrates With Others
Today I have the privilege of being on the Caliburn Press Blog Hop, coordinated by The Vampire Queen, http://www.thevampirequeen1.blogspot.com.
Caliburn Press, https://sites.google.com/site/caliburnpressllc/, deals mostly with horror, the supernatural, and the paranormal, and there may be a bit of paranormal or supernatural phenomenon in TALENT.
There is, but Sandee isn’t sure about whether the supernatural is real or a trick—maybe done with mirrors or an imaginative medium. In her mind, maybe it’s real and maybe it’s not. I know the psychic she consults is real and knows her stuff.
Caliburn Press also publishes young adult romance. Fifteen-and-a-half-year-old Sandee Mason qualifies as a young adult. She’s mature one minute and child-like the next. She’s discovering romance, or maybe it’s finding her while she’s busy trying to find her talents.
Sandee is going to put up a post quoting from some of the reviews for her story, but first, I wanted to share information from some of my fellow Caliburn authors. Their web pages are listed at the bottom of the article.
One of the kindest ways you can support a writer is to buy her book and read it in a public place—in a coffee shop or on the train.
Welcome to the Caliburn Press Blog Hop!!! Below you will find some of our books by some great authors. Please check them out. Don’t forget to follow the blog links below for more blogs and giveaways.
The Longest Midnight
The Earth is dead, long ago ruined in the fires of the war – a war without end. Humanity now fights extinction from the legions of the ravenous dead. These dead warriors change, they adapt, they fight back with our weapons, mimic our tactics, and even speak in our tongue. In a sign of desperation, a small group of human soldiers sets off into the unknown for answers to the dead’s uncanny ability to learn and organize and kill. They hope to return with something that will turn the tide in humanity’s favor. But is there even a tide to turn? Most humans can only wait and look up into the blackened sky, a sky without sun, a sky they call The Longest Midnight.

Thera doesn’t know why the Elanraigh Forest-Mind chose her, of all the Allenholme folk, to hear its voice and to awaken her gifts of mind and spirit.

Chuck Daukas: A Little Night Fishing
“Hidden by the sea and the fog, he watches. His lust for human flesh has sprouted and grown over a preternaturally long life. Now his hunger is insatiable and he will hide no longer.
On shore, a young, bumbling security guard barely escapes a mind-wrenching encounter, only to find himself all that stands between the thing and humanity – and a multiplying horror that is closer to us than we are to ourselves.”

While the investigators look at the disturbing possibilities, a pattern emerges. They find an organization hidden in plain sight that has no boundaries when it comes to pushing their agenda-
even at the cost of harming families and children.
Seeking escape from her abusive husband, aspiring columnist Rachel Jeffries travels into the hill country of Massachusetts, where she is saved from certain death by self-taught folk healer True Gannett.

She tries out for the school musical, but is assigned to a job that might be better than any role. Everything changes after her dad picks her up following a Saturday work day, and I can’t tell you the rest without spoilers. If you check the reviews on Amazon, you’ll see that it’s well worth your time.
