#NewBook: Jagged Feathers by Jan Sikes @JanSikes3 @WildRosePress
Hi everyone! Today, it gives me great pleasure to have fellow author, Story Empire contributor, and friend, Jan Sikes come over for a visit. Jan has some exciting news, and here she is to tell you all about it >>>
Thank you, Harmony, for inviting me to your blog site today to talk about my new book, JAGGED FEATHERS! I appreciate your generosity.
You’re so welcome, Jan! I’m excited to learn about your latest book 🙂
Nakina Bird is running when she enters the story. Not only trying to escape from a drug cartel but from psychic visions that haunt her. She carries heavy guilt for the death of her parents. She thinks if she’d warned them, they might still be alive after she received a shattering vision.
The first time Vann Noble gets a glimpse into her torment happens on the banks of Wolf Creek.
“Nakina! What’s wrong? Are you okay?” Vann reached for her hand.
“It’s the creek,” she whispered.
“What about the creek? Tell me what’s going on.”
Nakina opened her eyes. “I’m sorry. I don’t know how to explain it so that it makes sense. I see things. I see things before they happen, and at times I see things after they happen. My grandmother said it was a gift. I think it’s a curse.” A tear trickled down her cheek.
Vann pulled her into an embrace. “Tell me what you saw.”
“The water came up quickly, and people and their belongings were being washed away. They screamed for help.” She trembled and pulled back from the embrace.
He frowned. “I’m sure the creek has flooded before, but I’ve seen no signs of that happening since I’ve lived here. Perhaps it’s something that’s happened in the past. But you need to explain to me what you mean when you say that you saw it. I don’t understand.”
She wrung her hands. “It plays out like a vignette in my head, only I feel every aspect of what I am seeing. I never know if what I’m seeing is in the future, past, or present. The not knowing drives me crazy.”
“So you’re telling me that you’re psychic and can see things?”
She nodded. “I try my best to ignore all of it. Sometimes I’m afraid I’m losing my mind. But when things take place that I might have prevented had I spoken up, the guilt gnaws at me like a rabid animal. Like my parents, for instance. If I’d told my mother the vision that I was given that day, they might still be alive…” She trailed off.
I have a good friend who is a psychic, but I’ve never experienced psychic visions, and I don’t know how I’d react to them if I did, but I could sympathize with Nakina. Have you ever had any experiences like this, or know anyone who does?
Vann Noble did his duty. He served his country and returned a shell of a man, wounded inside and out. With a missing limb and battling PTSD, he seeks healing in an isolated cabin outside a small Texas town with a stray dog that sees beyond his master’s scars. If only the white rune’s magic can bring a happily ever after to a man as broken as Vann.
On the run from hired killers and struggling to make sense of her unexplained deadly mission, Nakina Bird seeks refuge in Vann’s cabin. She has secrets. Secrets that can get them all killed.
A ticking clock and long odds of living or dying, create jarring risks.
Will these two not only survive, but find an unexpected love along the way? Or, will evil forces win and destroy them both?
