Cover and Synopsis Reveal: Dark Whispers

Today I have the cover and synopsis of this contemporary fantasy novella series for the second story for you.  Now, I have the first story here to read, and can't wait to get to it.

Dark Whispers
Book 2 of: The Spirit Callers series
By:  Krista D. Ball
Due Out:  November 2012

A rash of teen suicides shakes the remote Newfoundland village that Rachel Mills calls home. As Rachel helps the school investigate, painful memories from her past – events she’d worked very hard to forget – continue to resurface. 

As if she didn't have enough problems. Her beloved 93-year-old neighbor develops heart problems. The man Rachel's in love with, moves into her house--along with his girlfriend, the most perfect woman in creation. And a strung-out wreck of a woman claiming to be Rachel's biological mother shows up on her doorstep. But it isn’t until a local boy with a talent for spellwork, is attacked by a mysterious stranger that Rachel asks the question she’s avoided her whole life: how powerful can a Spirit Caller like herself become? 

What do you think?  Sounds like a lot going on in Rachel's life there, and I'm curious to learn about being a Spirit Caller.  That cover is spooky, with the shades of purple and the ghost girl.  Looking good.

I do look forward to reading the first story, Spirits Rising.  Curious about this series?  The series is a set of novella length stories.  The first book, of 80pgs, is Spirits Rising:

Rachel Mills has one wish in life: for the spirit world to shut up and leave her alone. She thought her move to a remote fishing village in Northern Newfoundland would help.

Population: Twenty. What could go wrong?

Instead of peace, however, she relocates to a land of superstitution, the air alive with the presence of others.

When a local teenager accidentally summons the spirits of the area, including those from a thousand-year-old Viking settlement, all supernatural breaks loose. As the spirits stalk her and each other, Rachel finds herself in over her head. With the help of Mrs. Saunders, her 93-year-old neighbour, Rachel has to put aside her own prejudices long enough to send the spirits back to rest, or risk being caught in the midst of a spirit war.

You can find these novellas in eformat.

If you are curious and want to learn more about when Dark Whispers is released, you can sign up for Krista's news letter at:

You can purchase the first book on Amazon for Kindle:  Spirits Rising (Spirit Caller Series)

But, if you don't have a Kindle, Krista has agreed to send epub or pdf copies of the book to those who purchase on Kindle and forward the receipt to her and she will respond back with the format you need.

I love the sound of Dark Whispers. The cover is super cool too.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Oh interesting. She might also want to check out Smashwords and get them in all formats. Luckily I do have a kindle... ;)

Krista D. Ball said...

Melissa - Spirits Rising was everywhere for 6 months. I decided to make it exclusive to Amazon for the next 3 just so that I could take advantage of a couple of things.

However, anyone who purchases from Amazon can send me the receipt and I'll send them whatever format they want. :)

Dark Whispers will be available for purchase everywhere.

Jennifer L. Bielman, I think you might have read the first story here. I can't remember now. But thought I might have seen it there at your blog. Glad you like the sounds of this one. :)

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Hey Melissa (Books&things) They do sound really good. I look forward to reading the first book here soon. :) Thank you!

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Hi Krista! Thanks for stopping by. Hope you don't mind I wanted to share the first book as well for those who where curious. :) Thank you for the great information!

Krista D. Ball said...

If I recall, Jennifer read book 1 and is on my "I want to get Book 2" list. I'm out and about, so I can't check right now, but I can when back home Jennifer if you wish :)

Krista D. Ball said...

Of course not. Spirits Rising's cover is a couple months old, but it's not the original. So, happy that you shared it.

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Wonderful Krista! :D Thank you. And not the original. I didn't realize that. So great that I shared it. :)
