Blurb Blitz and Giveaway: Silent Scream (Bittersweet #2) by Marcia Colette

Welcome to my stop on the blurb blitz for Silent Scream by Marcia Colette. This blitz was organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. On my stop, I have an excerpt from the book as well as the tour wide giveaway for a chance to win a $15 Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift card.

Title: Silent Scream
Series: Bittersweet #2
Author: Marcia Colette
Publication Date: October 30th 2020
Print Length: 227 pages
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Fiction
Psychokinetic teen Phaedra Thorne is back! Her life consists of balancing her high school and college courses while trying to keep the peace between her older brother Kurt and little sister Nadia. On top of that, their schizophrenic and psychokinetic mom remains locked away in the attic. Believe it or not, things are better than they have ever been.

Those "better times" go up in flames when the only sanctuary the Thornes have ever known--their home--is burnt to the ground. With Kurt severely injured and their mother missing, Phae and Nadia have been left in the hands of the supernatural foster care system. Just as the Thorne sisters start to settle in with her temporary family, a blast from their horrific past comes to their foreboding rescue. Phae has good reason to be apprehensive about the new arrangements, considering many supernaturals want to buy the burnt out husk of a home and have taken a liking to her psychokinesis and Nadia's uncanny prowess. There's only one thing Phae can do. Find their mother.

Having been kidnapped, assaulted, and sold to the highest bidder, Phae will have to learn how to trust other members of her estranged family, if she has any hopes of saving the immediate one she loves.

Nadia’s moaning made me go faster. Keeping her head pressed into me, I hurried down the hall, ducked into a room that mom used whenever she came out of the attic. After lowering Nadia to the floor, I found the backpack on the shelf and slung it onto my back. There were things in there we would need like credit cards, cash, checks, and passports. Mason advised we all get one in case we ever need them in an emergency. I guess this counted. I grabbed Nadia’s hand, hurried us downstairs, and out the backdoor instead of the front. Neighbors would be watching, so the less they saw the better. 

I pulled Nadia all the way to the worn fence line and dropped the bags by her. I fished around in my purse for my phone until I found it and dialed Mason’s number. He answered on the fourth ring.

“The house is on fire,” I said. “I can’t talk to you now because I have to go back in and get my mother and Kurt out.”

“What?” Any grogginess he might have had in his voice was gone. “No. Phaedra, wait!”

“I can’t talk.” 

“Where are you? Are you anywhere around the house? Where’s Nadia?”

“She’s at the far end of the backyard.” I knelt down beside her for a tight hug and a kiss. “You have to come get her. Do you hear me? We may have our differences,’re all that she has at the moment. I have to get the rest of my family out.”
I'm Marcia Colette and I love to write urban fantasy, YA, horror, and paranormal romance. Since I was never a voracious reader until later in life, I try to write stories that I like to read, and for readers who don't have a lot of time in their busy lives.

My first published novel started with Half Breed (formerly known as Stripped) and my fantasy life took off from there. My next novel was a paranormal romance entitled Unstable Environment and I also released Bittersweet (YA), Hazardous Environment (Paranormal Romance), The Spider Inside Her (Urban Fantasy), and Deadlier by the Dozen (Urban Fantasy). I have sold several short stories and novellas to Mocha Memoirs Press and I continued my Alexa York series with Purple Sword Publications.

When I'm not reading or writing, I live my best life in the real world as an IT Manager and enjoy getting into trouble with my manga-loving daughter. I can't draw, so she's out of luck with that one. However, I always write a little piece of her into each of my characters.

And before I forget, I also write science fiction under another pen name.

Marcia Colette will be awarding a $15 Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift card to a randomly drawn winner via Rafflecopter. To increase your chance of winning, leave a comment at a different stop on the blitz each day. Good luck!

    1. Thanks for visiting, Deborah. In this case, it was about a year. However, there's about a 5 year publication gap between this book and the first book because I didn't intend to write book #2. My daughter convinced me to do it, since I finally allowed her to read the first one.

  4. I like the cover. It has beautiful colors.
