Alright everyone, here is my teaser for Teaser Tuesday.

I followed his gaze across the dining room. A green-haired, slight-framed woman was leaning against the massive trestle dining table, balancing three pizzas boxes left over from our early lunch in one hand and eating a slice from the top one, which was open. She watched us as we entered.

“Emerald-green hair,” I murmured. Why did she look familiar?

“Werewolf,” Beau said, quiet and so, so scared. But it wasn’t the green-haired werewolf he was scared of. He was looking past her into the kitchen.


 

HA!! If you haven’t read them yet, you MUST READ Meghan Ciana Doidge’s Dowser Series!!!!!

Cupcakes _2nd book cover
If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept — was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.
Trinkets_2ndbook cover
Three months ago, I lost my foster sister, Sienna, to the darkness. As in blood magic and chaos and general mayhem. No one saw it until it was too late, but I should have. Now, I have a wounded heart and soul that I can’t even reveal to anyone around me, because I’m supposed to hate Sienna with the fiery passion of the justified. And I do. I just wish I didn’t feel so lost without her, so unsure of the path I thought I had carved for myself, and so outclassed by the powerful Adepts constantly by my side these days. I’m not even sure if they’re with me for my own protection or because my shiny new powers are rare and valuable. Assuming I ever figure out who or what I am, and how my magic actually works. Even chocolate can’t save the day every time … just most of the time. At least I’ve got that going for me.
TREASURES_cover
I hadn’t set foot in the human world for more than a few hours in over three and a half months. Sure, I was stronger and faster than I’d ever been before, and I had a shiny new sword, but I was seriously chocolate deprived. I don’t recommend quitting cold turkey. And the new sword was a problem — to my mind, anyway. It represented all the expectations of a powerful father and a new otherworldly life. A life that wasn’t the one I’d worked so hard to build. It also represented the responsibility I had to bring my foster sister Sienna to … what? Justice? I didn’t know if that was even possible. What I did know was that Sienna wouldn’t stop, and that I couldn’t just leave everything up to fate and destiny … or maybe I was. Maybe I was doing exactly what I was supposed to be doing. If you believed in that sort of thing. I just hoped that before the chaos and mayhem renewed, I’d manage to get my hands on some chocolate. It didn’t even have to be single-origin Madagascar. I was utterly prepared to lower my standards.

Meghan has created a spectacular world! Jade attracts magic like honey attracts bees. Appropriate, when she owns a bakery called Cake In A Cup a creates cupcakes with names like “Love in a Cup” and “Bliss in a Cup”. Of course, the “trinkets” she creates from found objects is just a hobby . . . but when a vampire shows up, staring into her shop window, well, let’s just say that things get ‘interesting’ for Jade. In a very interesting, Chinese, May you live in interesting times sort of way! Set in Vancouver, BC, Canada, the Dowser Series is a creative new take on Urban Fantasy.  book-cover-coming-soon

Now, she adds to that world with I See Me:  Oracle #1. In this new branch to the series, we meet Rochelle Saintpaul, a deeply disturbed, (so says everyone else) difficult (ditto) teen with wicked nasty psychotic breaks (Yep. So say the multitudinous shrinks she has seen over the years). But then . . . are they Really psychotic breaks???

Aged out of the foster system, Rochelle buys a 21-foot Brave RV with her earnings from her Etsy store, where she sells her drawings of the scenes she sees in her mind when she has ‘incidents’, and hits the road to freedom. But what she finds on her trip will strain all her meticulously organized plans, as she finds herself dumped into a world of magic and terror.  Crossing paths with Jade, her world becomes ever more dangerous and fraught with weirdness. Can it be that all her psychotic breaks truly are something very, very book-cover-coming-soondifferent?

You can read this new branch of the series without reading the first three in the Dowser Series – but why would you want to?!

Proofreading will be finished for Oracle today, and it should be out very soon. The holidays are coming, people . . . (hint, hint) And Book FOUR!!!! of Dowser is coming out soon as well!

Of course, once you get hooked on Dowser and Oracle, well, you can wait for the next books in the series by reading Meghan’s other books. These are in publication order:

After the virus decimates 99.9% of the world’s population, and all traces of humanity along with it, Rhiannon and Will are forced to move beyond their past fame, fortune, and personal demons to rescue a mute girl from the clutches of two warring cults.

Theo woke severely injured, covered in blood, and missing ten years of her life. Just to complicate matters further, Theo was born under a prophecy; one that has rabid followers with three different interpretations, all of whom are willing to sacrifice her in order to fulfill it. Not knowing if she can trust the stranger she’s betrothed to, the warrior visiting her dreams, or even her own mother, Theo tries to piece together her past only to find that her present is far more dangerous. It’s the power of her own blood that scares her most of all. This is a responsibility Theo never wanted, and a destiny she cannot deny, “All because of a prophecy she was trying not to believe in, but kept fulfilling.”

Beth was sneaky. No lock could hold her. No cage could confine her. No door could bar her way. But, when your adoptive mother is a Spirit Binder, and all your siblings are elementals, being sneaky doesn’t really rank. That is until the devastation of a city draws her omniscient mother’s attention, and her siblings go missing one by one, then Beth’s sneakiness is the only thing standing between her, her loved ones, and the worst enemy she’ll ever face: herself.
