The Magic Withheld by CD Coffelt

Today is an exciting day! My wonderful critique partner's book is now available for YOU to read. I'm so excited for Carol. You probably know her as Huntress or maybe CD Coffelt. I know her as this amazingly supportive woman who had a dream to publish a story. She kept at it while encouraging others to reach for their dreams.

I met Carol a couple years ago and we exchanged manuscripts. Thanks to her honest remarks The Magic Wakes continued to improve. I can't say I made much of a difference in her book because it was already amazing. She was just biding her time to find the right publisher for it. The Magic Withheld (see why we get along so great! Magic!) is now available from Musa Publishing.

Blurb-
Justus Aubre is a wilder. A mage unbound to the Imperium, and therefore a dangerous wild card in their eyes. The Imperium wants him, wants his power, but Justus has hidden for many years and now has some semblance of a normal life. All that’s about to change when Sable Rounds walks through the door of his antique shop, looking for work. Justus instantly knows what Sable is, he just doesn’t know the danger he’s in.

Alone, also on the run from the Imperium, Sable longs for a normal life. For somewhere to belong. She finds this when Justus hires her, but she knows it’s temporary and fragile, an illusion. Though she hates to think about it, she knows that one day she will have to move on.

The Imperium is always behind her, waiting. When they finally find Sable, they find Justus. And all hell’s about to break loose.

Bio-
CD Coffelt lives outside Maryville, Missouri with a bemused husband and way too many cats. She adores all things fantasy with a special love for urban and epic.
With a passion for good writing and Doritos as companions, locating Middle-Earth on a dusty road in rural Missouri wasn’t difficult. All it took was a little Magic, hours of reading, and an overactive imagination.

    1. I know! I'm still so excited for her I can't stand it. :D

      Plus, the story is amazing. I'm almost finished with The Second Sign and then I'm reading Carol's book again to see the changes after working with an editor. THEN I'll do a review.
