Hello, cyber surfer, & welcome! I hope you stay awhile & drop in on all my waves here at CHARRON’s CHATTER. Below you’ll find the dust cover & blurb for my urban fantasy: SPIRITED REMIX, the manuscript this blog hopes to promote. Feel free to comment on any post you like, & here’s hoping you get barreled!
Some 411 on Urban Fantasy: Spirited Remix
What happens to the unrepentant after death? Are there separate places for the good and bad? Can the actions of a loose-ended Spirit affect events in earth’s Middle Realm?
Spirited Remix knows the answer. Peek into the life and death of Renee Tolman. Her snarky attitude only increases when she blows her brains out but continues to exist as a disenfranchised spirit. ‘Guess someone didn’t need a Bloody Mary for breakfast!
The consequences to her actions are out of her control now–a caveat the unsung artist discovers when a zipped body bag traps her with her remains until after the ash scattering. She’s convinced her siblings’ manic behavior at her funeral is part of their existent personalities, until a lightning induced wormhole sucks her into the next dimension and she confronts the very aspects of herself that impelled her to suicide in the first place: her Id and Super-Ego incarnated as celestial watchdogs. As the Freudian fairies vie for the upper hand, and Renee awaits final judgment day in an Afterlife that’s suspiciously familiar, she has ample opportunity to decide which part of her psyche has her best interests at heart.
Is it pretty Perdi, who reminds her so much of boyfriends past? Or cerebral Clement, the embodiment of a childhood mentor? Only a final showdown in Sin City between Renee and her estranged mother will tell. Replete with magical creatures, moral dilemmas and faces from the past both relative and famous, our heroine’s posthumous attempt to achieve inner harmony is juxtaposed against her dysfunctional family’s struggle to cope with her death back on earth.
Keep an eye on this urban fantasy’s trek to publication here at: Charron’s Chatter. You’ll find updates on the submission process, op-eds, offbeat philosophies, and scribbles covering a diverse range of topics–including when you and she will teleport to an Afterworld of her own making.
