At twenty-two, practicing Wiccan Sophia Parsons is scratching out a living waiting tables in her Rocky Mountain hometown, a pariah after a string of unsolved murders with only one thing in common: her.

Sophia can imagine lots of ways to improve her life, but she’d settle for just getting rid of the buzzing noise in her head. When the spell she casts goes wrong, the static turns into voices. Her personal demons get company, and the newcomers are dangerous.

One of them is a man named Charles, who Sophia falls for despite her better judgment. He has connections that might help her unveil the mystery surrounding her ancestor’s hanging, but she gets more than she bargains for when she finally decides to trust him.

The Grave Winner + 20 More Novels! #99cents #boxset #pnr

gravewinnerThe limited edition paranormal boxed set Be Witched includes The Grave Winner by Lindsey R. Loucks. This is just one witchy story in a collection of 21 page-turning, full length novels for only $.99! Order your copy today!

Leigh Baxton is terrified her mom will come back from the dead – just like the prom queen did.

While the town goes beehive over the news, Leigh bikes to the local cemetery and buries some of her mom’s things in her grave to keep her there. When the hot and mysterious caretaker warns her not to give gifts to the dead, Leigh cranks up her punk music and keeps digging.

She should have listened.

Two dead sorceresses evicted the prom queen from her grave to bury someone who offered certain gifts. Bury them alive, that is, then resurrect them to create a trio of undead powerful enough to free the darkest sorceress ever from her prison inside the earth.

With help from the caretaker and the dead prom queen, Leigh must find out what’s so special about the gifts she gave, and why the sorceresses are stalking her and her little sister. If she doesn’t, she’ll either lose another loved one or have to give the ultimate gift to the dead – herself.

REVIEWS

“This is such an imaginative story, and Leigh has so much voice, it’s like you’re there, living her nightmare with her… Miss Loucks knows her craft.” – Pam Godwin, New York Times bestselling author.

“Witty and fast paced, The Grave Winner by Lindsey R. Loucks is a snarky blend of zombie horror and urban fantasy… I loved it.” – Kayti Nika Raet for Readers’ Favorite

“The Grave Winner… is more of a fantasy-zombie hybrid, with both enchanting magic and romance you might expect from a fantasy novel, kick-butt action and creeps you might expect from a zombie novel, and strong characters and storyline a reader would want from any story!” – Moosubi Reviews.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Lindsey R. Loucks works as a school librarian in rural Kansas. When she’s not discussing books with anyone who will listen, she’s dreaming up her own stories. Eventually her brain gives out, and she’ll play hide and seek with her cat, put herself in a chocolate induced coma, or watch scary movies alone in the dark to reenergize.

Ringing in the New Year (Probably Illegally) and a #Giveaway For #Authors!

Hello there, 2016! Aren’t you looking all sexy and new! I have to say 2015 was kind of a blah year for me. Other than a few high points, it was pretty sleep-inducing. Sleep is a super special thing, but all year? Come on!

I rang in the new year with book research. I won’t tell you what I was researching because I’ll probably get arrested.

So! New year’s resolutions… the only one I have is to blog more, which is why I’m here today with two pieces of newses, one for each hand!

Number one newses is that the last book of The Grave Winner trilogy releases in seven days!!!

The Trinity Bleeds - ebook

Preorder Here!

Book 1 Is Here!

Book 2 Is Here!

Heidi from Momma Says Read called The Trinity Bleeds, “quite possibly the best YA horror book I’ve read.” – Goodreads.

Wow! Thank you, Heidi!

Number two newses is that I would like to start paying it forward to all you authors out there. The writing community has always been so supportive to me and tons of other authors.

So, every month, I would like to give away a free critique of an author’s first 500 words here on the old blog. The first 500 words can be anything from your Nano project to a research paper to a cereal box that you created for whatever reason…anything! Seriously, folks. I. Read. Everything.

I just have three rules (yeah, yeah, I know):

  1. Your first 500 words have to be PG-13. The rest can be robot dinosaur smut.
  2. If you win, you only have 48 hours to email me your first 500 words. Or else I’ll choose a new winner!
  3. You should be comfortable with receiving a critique. Because we’re writers, peeps!

Why should you want to win this critique from yours truly? Well, I hate to brag, but…

  • I’m super close to finishing my sixth novel.
  • I’ve been critiquing other authors’ works for eight years, some of whom are now New York Times bestselling authors.
  • I worked as an intern for a well-respected publishing company for one year.
  • I’m represented by the uber-amazing Rossano Trentin of TZLA Literary and Film Agency.

So, yeah. That’s me.

My critiquing style looks like a hamburger: the top and bottom is filled with the good, and in the middle is the juicy part where I offer constructive criticism. And now I want a hamburger.

Interested? Hit the Rafflecopter below (but don’t actually hit it)! Also, happy new year!

THE GRAVE WINNER is #free Through Oct. 27! #ya #horror

Halloween is my very favorite time of year, which is why I choose to celebrate it all year! This is why I never dust my house and there are cobwebs covering everything. Yep. That’s the reason.

Anyway, to help get you in the spooktacular mood, I’ve made The Grave Winner free on Amazon  and Amazon International through Tuesday, the 27th.

Leigh Baxton just wants to pick up the pieces of her life—if you could call it that—but someone keeps resurrecting the dead. These new zombies have a knack for spilling Leigh’s precious blood, something she was warned about by a certain pair of undead sorceresses.

Desperate to find out why they’re here so Leigh can put the nightmares behind her, she must learn more about the gifts she carries. With Tram’s training sessions and clues from her mom’s past, Leigh begins to piece together what she’s capable of.

Too bad there isn’t a Cliff’s Notes version to saving the world.

The zombies have teamed up with followers of the darkest sorceress who ever lived, and they’ll play a wicked game until she’s freed from her prison inside the earth. When the battle to the death begins, Leigh must rely on friends, crushes, and even her enemies to win the war, but not the grave.

 

“Ms. Loucks writes her boots off in this the bloody action horror filled with vivid imagery and delicious suspense.” – Pam Godwin, Author

“Wow. Wow wow wow. This book is amazing!” – Amazon Reviewer

“…very dark and extremely frightening!!!” – Amazon Reviewer

Oh, and a quick word about the third book, The Trinity Bleeds–I’m almost finished with the second draft! One more draft, and it will be ready for my editor.  If you’re interested in beta-reading it, let me know!

The Grave Winner Trilogy #coverreveal #petthecover

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on the ol’ blog. (I’m so sorry, blog. I still love you.) Hopefully this post will more than make up for that!

I’m gearing up to re-release The Grave Winner books one and two (book three is on the way!), so naturally I need brand new covers to do that. You remember the amazing covers I had before? These new ones needed to be even better, which is a tall order for a potential cover designer. I put my complete trust in Rebecca Hamilton, USA Today bestselling author, editor, and, you guessed it, cover designer.

And OMG, look what she did!

I can’t stop drooling over them!

Books 1 and 2 will hopefully be ready for re-release in the fall, and if I cross my fingers, toes, and eyes, book 3 should be ready by the winter!

Happy Book Birthday to What Gifts She Carried! #ya #paranormal

Today’s the day! Actually, tomorrow was supposed to be the day, but Amazon was as anxious as I was to get out in the wild!

 

I’m not going to lie–this book was labor-intensive. I wrote at least thirty-five pages of scenes that just didn’t work because Leigh, my main character, stopped talking to me for a looooong time, likely because I made her relive the nightmare known as The Grave Winner. Sorry, Leigh!

 

Anyway, in case you missed it, here’s the cover, blurb, and a few links. Other links will be added later. And, oh! I’ll be doing a blog tour in September, so stay tuned for details and giveaways!
