Dream Cast: Mind Games

castingSometimes I find my muses on the catwalk rather than the TV, so I can’t attest to the acting abilities of some of my pics. None the less, if Mind Games were to need a cast, this is who I’d envision.

Shifter, Skye Lannister, takes a job at the Agency in hopes to help her kind, but the Agency isn’t what it seems. Caught by the vampire Syndicate council member, Zeek, Skye starts to question what she was thinking taking the job. When Zeek urges her to look deeper into the Agency, Skye learns that the company is hiding dark secrets and menacing plans.

Zeek Fuchs, Syndicate Council member, vampire, drug lord, and overall badass wasn’t prepared to protect the shifter he caught hacking his systems. The naïve woman took the job on a whim and had no idea she was carrying out dangerous orders. When assassins start attacking, things heat up as the two fight to keep her alive.

Novella Two: Mind Games

Most witches are freelance, but being a psychic witch makes Reagan Silas valuable to the Agency’s Protection and Security Division. Untrained in physical magic, Reagan’s talents as a witch are only a benefit in the Mindscape of those she interrogates. Her world is turned upside down when her interrogation of the Alpha of the O’Conner pack goes terribly wrong.

Liam O’Conner never expected to find himself protecting the woman who tormented him in his own mind, but when it becomes clear that both of them are in danger he has no other choice. With an unseen foe on the loose, Liam must keep the witch close to him at all times and find a way to convince her of the truth about her employers. Can he make her see what the Agency is really up to or will her dark past keep her from trusting him?

When I’m Dead by Erin Lee

Book Synopsis:
“Beware of Picket Fences”

Violet Hoffman is a planner. She’s had more than enough time—especially on holidays—to think this through. There’s really no point in turning back. Now, armed with a plan, Violet only needs to pull the trigger. She runs through her list of essentials: Motel room, check. Bottle of pills, check. Razor blades, check. Knife, yup. Purpose, check. Voice ready to be heard. Got it. Revenge, coming right up.

Violet is ready. After all, she decides, everyone is born for a reason. For most of her life, she’s been different. Since she was nine years old, she’s carried a secret that made it impossible for her to be normal. For a decade, she’s been torn between loyalties and healing. But now, finally an adult, Violet can let it all out. And it isn’t going to be pretty. But then again, being ‘pretty’ and ‘special’ really aren’t what they’re cracked up to be.

When I’m Dead is the story of an eighteen-year-old abuse victim alienated by her family. Ignored by a faulty system and shuffled from placement to placement, Violet is finally old enough to be heard. Sometimes, the best messages are given without words. And Violet’s always been a person of action. Where will Violet’s plan and actions take her? Will she finally get her message across? What will they think of her, when she’s dead? Will they even notice?
