A Marked Past Goes Global

This was another busy week of stretching out my arms to create as much attention as I can for A Marked Past. So, I was very surprised and pleased to receive an email from a book review blogger who is excited about the upcoming release too! AND she’s offered to help me do some marketing! She has a link on her blog A Diary of a Book Addict about A Marked Past and has also posted a page out at GoodReads. In addition to her generous links, she also reached out to her blogger buddies and has them sharing the cover, a new blurb, and the release date with their readers around the world. I can’t thank them enough for sharing in my excitement! Don’t forget, the website will be launched in the next two weeks with a sample chapter so keep checking back for the launch!
Now, just for you, here’s a more detailed blurb for A Marked Past, hope you enjoy it!
Lyla Mercer’s life changed the moment her dad was murdered, and again when she heard that she could be next. Forced to move to Salem for safe keeping, Lyla soon discovers her family has a dark history in the small town, and when a glossy black moon appears on the back of her neck she becomes newest part of that legacy. Her family is marked and being hunted, but Lyla may be the weapon they need to survive. Lyla attempts to ignore the danger, pretending to be ordinary, but whispers and rumors follow her everywhere. She thinks nothing can ever be normal for her again until she meets Caleb, the minister’s son, and the absolute wrong boy to be dating a witch. He’s everything she wants to be, just a normal kid from a normal family. At least that’s what she thinks, but nothing is as it seems in Salem. Caleb has secrets to keep about his family that rival her own. Until recently, Caleb’s step father has managed to keep his true identity and murderous ways a secret, but when Lyla uncovers the truth about him, nobody is safe, especially her.


  1. Leslie I love it! I cannot wait to read the book!

  2. Hello Leslie. I just noticed that you joined my blog as the first follower. Thanks. I don't plan to post much there, just to keep it alive, so I can say that I have a blog. I see that you are more active because you book "Market Past" is coming out in 2 and 1/2 months. Good luck with the book. The synopsis is very interesting. Ofcourse, I don't know what are the whispers and rumors, but the concept is exciting. I'm curious if she have some powers of magic. Maybe you will come for a signing tour to Toronto, canada ..:).
    The book cover is good, but I can't see what she is holding in her right hand. Have a wonderful weekend.
