Recently over on the opinionated cupcakes Facebook page I have discovered author Charlie Daye. She is such a sweetheart I decided that since Kimmy and I had been talking about starting Shout out Sundays. I would approach her to be our first :) So I am here today to share a little about Charlie, some of her books and some exciting news from yesterday. As I said I just lately discovered Charlie so this is going to be fun for me to, as i am yet to start reading her books but very excited. Recently one of her books Remember Me was one of our Facebook freebie alerts. I didn't hesitate to hit one click and can't wait to read it soon.
About Charlie Daye
Charlie Daye was born in Lynwood, California. Her greatest passions are music and writing. Her first short story was written at the age of thirteen. At the time her entire class was asked to write a short story for Halloween as part of a homework assignment. Most of the kids in the class wrote one to two page stories... Charlie wrote eight. The short story titled The Haunted House went on to win her district wide awards and was published locally. From their she began writing poetry as means of expression.
After that, her writing career dropped off until she decided to write her first novel... The House. The house is the first book in her paranormal romance trilogy The Curse Breaker's. She's currently working on several books to include a new Sci-Fi series.
Her inspiration comes from everywhere and all of her friends have already been warned... "If I find your escapades interesting don't be surprised if they wind up in my next book!"
About Her Books
As I type and look at Charlie's website and Goodreads. I am kicking myself for not having read her books already they all sound so good. Charlie is a paranormal author and writes series as well as stand alones. If you would like to see her writing style she even has a free short story on her website you can read. (link at bottom of post under useful links) I have decided to showcase a few of the first books in three of her different series. However do check out her Goodreads so much choice!
The House (Curse Breaker's Trilogy #1)
Aria De La Vega lived a pretty mundane life until she inherited the house.
After arriving at the house, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Aria meets the man of her dreams, finds the house is haunted, is attacked by a ghost, learns about the Native American curse that has plagued the land the house sits on for more than 130 years and discovers that she is the key to undoing it all. And that is only the first 48 hours.
With help of her two best friends, Melissa, a formidable attorney out of California and Amy, the granddaughter of a Cherokee medicine woman, Aria will decipher the curse, battle an unseen force bent on destroying her, deal with the painful stab of deceit and wager everything to save herself and the man she loves.
Fury (Children of Kria #1)
I am a seeker of vengeance;
A mender of broken hearts.
I respond to the siren call of loneliness and despair.
I was once a human woman;
Very much like you;
Until my heart was destroyed by the man I loved.
My only purpose now is to avenge those that have been betrayed.
I am Fury…
And hell has nothing on me.
Warning - Adult content, violent subject matter
The Gypsy's dance (The Hunter's series #1)
Oralia Simone just turned eighteen and discovered that she has been promised to someone by her parents for marriage. Not wanting to shame her family she agrees to participate in the matching celebration where she will dance for her betrothed. Niko Raydon is a Hunter. He and his kind are what police the magical community and make sure that no one uses dark magic to harm another. Niko finds himself drawn to a small Gypsy village on the night of their annual matching celebration because of the use of dark magic. Tobias McGrath is next in line to lead his clan of Gypsy's. He's been promised Oraila Simone - the most beautiful woman in the clan and intends to make her his no matter the cost. When Oralia meets Niko the connection between them is instant and despite her impending marriage to Tobias she wants to be with Niko and he with her. But will their love be enough to set her free or will Tobias's use of evil magic tear them apart for good?
Yesterday Charlie did a surprise release of book two in the Children of Kria series!!! Book two Raithe s out now.
From the shadows I emerge;
My siren call is fear and death.
I was beaten, raped and left for dead like so many unfortunate souls.
But I was offered a different path;
A fear free path of justice, seeking vengeance against those like the ones that left me to die.
I am the omen of death and will strike in the dead of night.
I am Raithe…
And I am coming for you.
