Night Owl Reviews Web Hunt

Are you curious what Two Worlds Collided is all about?

Evie Reid on a whim agrees to travel back in time to 1997 to change bad boy, rock star Bellamy Lovel's path of destruction. She's smart with a college degree, but she is still fan-girl crazy for the rock band, Civilized Heathens. Evie knows despite all Bellamy's smiles and enthusiasm on the stage, he's destined to end it all on one lonely night in a hotel room unless she can change his path.

Bellamy isn't keen on having Evie as his personal assistant, hired by his band mates to watch over him, and keep him on schedule. However, there is something about the woman that sparks his interest, despite his best to ignore her. When darkness threatens to consume him, he realizes she may be the only light that will chase the shadows away.

 

Inspiration for Two Worlds Collided:

My daughter and I watched 'INXS- Live at Wembley' on DVD. We were sad to think the lead singer had died so tragically and there would never be another song written or performed by him. The time travel tale about Bellamy Lovel took root, but I wanted a happier ending for my rock star and sent Evie back in time to try and save him.

 

Fun related:

Did you know that every chapter title is a title of a song from INXS? You can create a Two Worlds Collided playlist.

1. I'm Just a Man
2. Disappear
3. Body Language
4. Building Bridges
5. By My Side
6. What Would You Do
7. Heaven Sent
8. Elegantly Wasted
9. Taste It
10. Strange Desire
11. Hear that Sound
12. Burn for You
13. Biting Bullets
14. Kick
15. Who Pays the Price
16. Newsreel Babies
17. We Were Thrown Together
18. Need You Tonight
19. Beautiful Girl
20. Know the Difference
21. Back on Line
22. Not Enough Time
23. Everything
24. Never Tear Us Apart
25. Faith of Each Other
26. Old World New World
27. Time

Do you have a favorite INXS song? If not, what is your favorite rock n roll band?

I'm so glad you stop by today. Readers are what writers can never live without. The novel doesn't only belong to the writer; it also belongs to the reader as well. Without the reader the story is just ink on a paper and nothing more. Opening the book, reading those first words, this is where the true magic begins. I love readers! Thank you so much for loving books.

Happy Reading!

Seeing is believing… Right? End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: The man claiming to be her father who die twenty-three years ago disappeared then reappeared again, making her believe ghosts just might be real. He told her he'd been trying to make contact with someone.

Now for the snippet...

***The story has not been edited.

**********************************************************************************************************************

"You've been dead for twenty-three years so what do you mean you've tried?" Then she realized what she said. Did she really believe she was seeing her father's spirit? Hell, she was talking to her father's spirit.

"Twenty-three years," he repeated then seemed to ponder those words as if he'd lost count of the years he'd been gone from the world of the living.

"After all this time, why can I see you?" she asked even though her mind argued this couldn't be happening. "Can Mom see you?" she threw another question at him before he could answer the first. Lars is here, her mother had stated. Only, she hadn't believed her, since she thought the alcohol and drugs were doing the talking.

He shook his head.

**********************************************************************************************************************

So what has changed that she can see him now?

Blurb:

Lars Gunner, the frontman for Silent Plaids, died 23 years ago and is trapped in limbo until his daughter, Cecilia, unearths his journal and is able to see him. His death was ruled an unfortunate accident, but he's convinced it had to be murder despite the fact he can't recall what happened in his last moments of life. Cecilia seeks the help from Kaleb, a psychic, but as they resurrect the past, the secrets and lies surrounding Lar's rock and roll life just may be the death of them too.

If you’re a writer (regardless of published/unpublished status) come join us and share a snippet of your work in progress, a new release, or an oldie but goodie.

Don’t scream… End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: The man claiming to be her father, who died 23 years ago, just disappeared. He was standing there one moment then poof he wasn't.

Now for the snippet...

***The story is in the very early stages and has not been edited.

**********************************************************************************************************************

She blinked and blinked again. Had she really seen her father's spirit? "No. Not possible."

However before she could fully convince herself, a shimmering light appeared where he'd been standing seconds ago and the floor lamp dimmed and brightened. Then the Lars Lookalike was zapped right into existence once more as if he never did his disappearing act, looking vibrant and alive and definitely solid.

"Don't scream," he warned with his hands up in a calming gesture.

"I'm losing my mind," she said to herself but the Lars lookalike seemed to think she was speaking to him.

"You're not. I've been trying to make contact with someone, anyone...in what seems like forever."

**********************************************************************************************************************

Well, he's made contact now. lol

Now you see him. Now you don’t… End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: Cecilia laughs at the intruder's claims that he is her father. Her father has been dead for 23 years and this man could only be in his twenties. The man doesn't appear pleased at her response but before he could say more the floor lamp flickers.

Now for the snippet...

***The story is in the very early stages and has not been edited.

**********************************************************************************************************************

Just as the room threatened to go dark, the crackle of electricity brought the light bulb back to life once more.

She stared wide-eyed at the Lars Lookalike for a full two seconds before she realized why something seemed off. She could see the lamp standing tall and bright but not to the side of him; she could see the lamp right through him as if his body mass had suddenly gone transparent. She closed her eyes then reopened them again as if doing so would clear her vision, but nothing changed.

"What's wrong?" he asked with concern.

Now, wasn't that a loaded question? "You're..." she pointed at him and swallowed the lump in her throat. "I-I can see right through you."

The Lars lookalike glanced down at himself and cursed then said, "I'm sorry," before he winked out. It was the only way she could explain what she witnessed.

**********************************************************************************************************************

I don't know about you, but that would certainly freak me out. lol

Don’t Make Me Laugh…End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet: The stranger claims to be her father who died twenty-three years ago. If that's true why does he look like he hasn't aged a day?

Now for the snippet...

***The story is in the very early stages and has not been edited.

**********************************************************************************************************************

She laughed and it came out like she'd lost her mind, but she had a full-on nerd moment with his, 'I'm your father' crapola. She'd watched an old sci-fi movie recently where the evil guy, with a definite breathing problem, revealed he was the father to the hero of the movie. What a sick joke and in a weird way this was no different. Her father had been gone a long time and even if this guy's claims were true, which they weren't, where had he been for twenty-three years?

"You have a warped sense of humor," she said with a chuckled, but then reined in her laughter when Lars Lookalike didn't appear amused, but really what had he expected? She cleared her throat. "Listen, I'm not sure what you think you're going to gain here by pretending to be my father. Sure, you look a lot like him, but there's just one flaw. My father, if he still lived and breathed, would be fifty years old."

His expression plainly revealed his annoyance with her and he opened his mouth to say something but closed it again when the floor lamp behind him dimmed.

**********************************************************************************************************************

Can't really blame her for not believing him, can you?  lol

Could it be? End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet: Cecilia finds a stranger in the house who looks a lot like her father. Only he's been dead for twenty-three years...

Now for the snippet...

***The story is in the very early stages and has not been edited.

**********************************************************************************************************************

He took a step toward her again, but her words made him pause. "You tripped the silent alarm when you broke in here and the police are already on their way," she threatened even though it was a complete and utter lie.

"I know this has gotta be freakin' you out," he said with his palms up as if he were surrendering to her.

"Breaking into someone's house will do that to a person."

"CeeCee, think about this for a moment. I didn't break in."

She narrowed her eyes and her heart began to race all over again.

"You know who I am," he continued.

She shook her head even though she knew what his next words were going to be.

"I'm your father."

**********************************************************************************************************************

 Well that would be a shock. However, will she believe his claim?

A Lars Lookalike or not? End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet: Cecilia was about to go home for the night but finds a shadowy figure waiting for her in the music room. She's ready to run from the intruder, but then the man says: "CeeCee, it's me." Her eyes narrow as she stares at the man who has taken a step closer.

Now for the snippet...

***The story is in the very early stages and has not been edited.

**********************************************************************************************************************

Tall, lean, blond and looking so much like the photos she'd seen of her father, he could step in and be Lars Gunner. Only her father – if he were still alive – would be in his forties and wouldn't look like this man who couldn't be much older than she.

"Holy mother of – she can't see me," the Lars lookalike exclaimed in apparent frustration as he ran his fingers through his long strands, making the hair fall like waves of golden silk around his face the second he released their hold.

"I can see you," she told him but as her fear quickly evaporated and anger took hold she fired off questions one after the other without taking a breath. "How in the hell did you get in here, what do you want, and how do you know my father called me CeeCee?" Then she remembered the film and the segment she watched earlier. Dear Lord, had this guy been in the house this whole time?

"I've waited so long," he said with such enthusiasm she thought he might clap his hands together in delight. "You can really see me?" he then asked as if he couldn't believe it.

What was wrong with this guy – despite the obvious that he was a criminal who'd broken into her mother's house and was impersonating her father?

**********************************************************************************************************************

Editors-I have a question: Should I separate Cecilia's questions to Lars with a question mark for each of those questions or is it okay to separate them with a comma like I did above because she's firing them off all in one breath? Love to hear your feedback.
