Today we're spotlighting A.L. Waddington's Essence! Essence is a paranormal romance with elements of past lives and time travel. Check out the synopsis and a short excerpt below!
“Jocelyn Timmons does not believe she is anything special — just an ordinary high school senior, living an ordinary life full of school-work, volleyball and friends. She’s about to find out how wrong she is.
Jackson Chandler moved in to the house across the street. His dark wavy hair, green eyes and charismatic personality draws everyone to him. Everyone, but Jocelyn.
Whenever Jackson gets near Jocelyn she feels ill and dizzy. When he touches her, she blacks out and has visions of another life, in another time. As the odd hallucinations evolve and become clearer, she feels a strong pull towards the people she sees there. Frightened, she watches her once stable life begin to crumble around her and she begins to question her own sanity.
Could it be possible that these episodes are actually her own memories of a life she is living somehow, somewhere, some-when? Maybe this is time-travel or some other paranormal mysticism? Our minds often wander, but can our souls?”
Excerpt from Essence:
I rolled over to my side, snuggling down into the covers. The little, blue box sat waiting or me on the night table. I squeezed by eyes together tightly and rolled over in the other direction, putting my back to it. A part of me was so tempted to see what in would show me this time, but the other part of me was too terrified to risk it. I tried to ignore it calling me. Its power felt so strong. In my mind, I could see each of the earlier vision. I tried to force myself to concentrate on something else — anything else. Jackson. His words earlier ran through my head. Why did he not believe me about the magic? Why did his face hold that smirk when he whispered those words into my ear? Did he know what his silver trinket was doing to me? No. it is not possible. Or is it? What is he hiding from me?
