Written By: Janna - Oct• 12•14

The brains behind Patchwork Press that have already brought you the LOST LOCKET OF LAHARI anthology, now introduce each of the short stories as a stand alone e-book.

Which of course means Erica Crouch has been designing new covers…

The Empath

IN A VICTORIAN society fascinated by spiritualists, something wicked sinks its claws in from the other side.

Odessa is a psychic; her mother, the Great Madame Elena, is a fraud. After a séance goes terribly wrong and a woman ends up dead, an evil force slips into the land of the living.

Though Odessa and her mother try to outpace the rumors spreading, they can’t escape the danger that has taken residence within Odessa herself. When Odessa is shouldered with the responsibility of the Great Madame Elena’s business, she starts to lose control of the spirit world, and she can’t afford to make another mistake.

Asked to open the door to the other side again, Odessa witnesses a brutal murder that hints at black magic and is faced with a choice: risk her life for freedom from her mother, or go on living a life of servitude. If she goes into a trance again, will she be able to maintain control?

TheDreamer

JAZZ MUSIC, NIGHT clubs, and slinky dresses—Olivia wants it all. As a teenage orphan in 1920’s Manhattan, she knows how to dream big. Life on the streets is easy to gloss over with stars in her eyes and Charlie, the orphan gang’s leader, by her side.

But when Charlie leaves to pursue his own dreams, Olivia is in danger of losing herself forever in her fabricated fantasies. Pulled from her imaginary world by a locket, Olivia will soon come to realize big changes come in small packages. Her strength of character will be put to the test as everything she’s ever wished for is suddenly within grasp.

The Adventurer

Everything.

Getting caught is just the beginning of Madeline’s adventure as she meets Weston and discovers the secret of where she came from.
