Magic is Real

The Fourth Door by Virginia King

Magic, divination, rituals, and spirits in Hong Kong.


Woman rescues man.


Do I need to say more to make you want to read this? How about: original and well-researched, a mix of romance, sleuthing, and adventure?


The plot spirals out from Selkie and Alister’s search for his son, who was abducted thirty years ago, into a struggle to rescue Alister’s soul from sorcery. As always, Selkie is courageous and intuitive, and helped by a team of friends and intriguing new allies. I loved the scene with the “villain hitters.” And the effect on the villain, if that character can be called one. At times, I found myself wondering how the story might have played out if Selkie’s best friends hadn’t been available, if she’d had to rely only on her new acquaintances in a strange place. But her world is one of connections—emotional, social, spiritual, and synchronistic.


After finishing this book, I began reading a conventional cozy mystery and went into Selkie Moon withdrawal. Longing for the truly out-of-the ordinary.

Discover New Authors in the New Year


This is the last big multi-author giveaway that I'll participate in for a while, perhaps the only one this year, so dig in.


I recommend Virginia King’s Laying Ghosts, the prequel to her Selkie Moon Series. Fans of my Mae Martin books will probably like this series, mystical mysteries with strong settings and psychological depth.


Theresa Crater’s Under the Stone Paw has elements of mystery, science fiction, and fantasy. I don’t normally read the latter two genres, but I was so caught up in her portrayal of Egypt and its ancient sites, I broke my normal genre reading boundaries.


British author Jordaina Sydney Robinson has been my critique partner for years. I’m not being biased when I say she’s one of the funniest and most original writers in the mystery genre. Beyond Dead is more fun than you ever imagined the afterlife could be.


You can download these and many others, including my book Shaman's Blues, the first and only time it ever will be free. Happy reading in the new year.

Free books and Favorite Authors


The genre of supernatural suspense is broad, with varying types and degrees of “paranormality” (I think I just invented a word), so there’s something here for all tastes.


I’ve read and can enthusiastically recommended three of the books in this promotion.

M.L. Eaton and Virginia King are my mystical mystery sisters, and we share a reading audience. When the Clocks Stopped is a time-slip mystery spanning two centuries in a small English village on Romney Marsh. The language is beautiful and the plot truly original, a blend of history and mystery. I totally fall into the settings, swept away, and feel as if I know the characters as real people. Laying Ghosts, like all of Virginia King’s work, is powerful psychological suspense influenced by folklore and mythology while set in current times. When I read her books, I always stay up later than I mean to, wrapped up in Selkie Moon’s adventures, and then have profound, provocative dreams.


The other book I want to rave about is Beyond Dead, a paranormal cozy mystery by Jordaina Sydney Robinson. What if when you died, you didn’t go to hell, but to work? Her style and humor are incomparable, especially the dialogue.


The Calling, book one in my Mae Martin Psychic Mystery series, is part of this promotion as well.


Happy reading! I hope you discover some new favorite authors.

#Giveaway Ends Soon: #Paperback of Soul Loss
Soul Loss (Mae Martin Mysteries Book 4) - Amber Foxx

The giveaway ends July 15th.


Soul Loss


The fourth Mae Martin psychic mystery


Spring winds blow strange times into the City Different:


Mae Martin’s friend Jamie Ellerbee has dropped out of her life—and perhaps his own life as well. A teenaged model breaks contact with her parents after an encounter with a Santa Fe shaman. A psychic fair can’t recruit any psychics. Something is wrong with all of them … except one.


Faced with mysteries that reach into in the spirit world, Mae takes on her most challenging work yet—work that puts her gifts as a psychic and a healer at risk.


The Mae Martin Series

No murder, just mystery. Every life hides a secret, and love is the deepest mystery of all.


The e-books editions of the first three books in the series are on sale--a dollar off the usual price--on all e-book retailers. To learn more about the series and find sales links and a #free download go to http://amberfoxxmysteries.wordpress.com
