Bayou Myth

Well, I hate to do it, but I'm gonna! I'm tootin' my own horn! Today my young adult novel, Bayou Myth, officially goes on sale everywhere. I hope you'll check it out at my personal blog, LOESCH'S MUSE or perhaps at one of the buy links listed below.

I've been working on Bayou Myth for a while and it feels so good to have it available in ebook form, as well as, paperback. Next week I will be doing a virtual book tour through My Reading Addiction Book Tours which will include giveaways, interviews, and (gasp!) reviews--ten reviews to be exact!

Here is the synopsis of the book:

As a sixteen year old voodoo queen in the making, Joan Renault just wants to be like all the other girls in the small town of Monte Parish, Louisiana—obsessed with boys and swamped with social lives. If the other kids would quit calling her “hoodoo hag,” she might have a small shot at normality. It would also help if Joan’s weekend outings with her secret crush, Dave, weren’t always being interrupted by her dead Grandmere, the legendary Marie Laveau. After all, it’s hard to make out with your best friend when your grandmother is watching! But when you come from a long line of voodoo priestesses with dried gator heads decorating the wall of their huts, normal doesn’t come easily.

When Joan witnesses the brutal sacrifice of a child to a tree Druid, she learns her Grandmere’s scandalous past has come back to haunt those living in the present. Hera, a vengeful voodoo priestess, is determined to use the residual energy of Pandora’s Box to revive a sleeping voodoo god and declare war on the descendants of Marie Laveau, especially Joan. Suddenly, Greek myths are being re-enacted all over town, and Joan has her hands full trying to sort it all out. With the approach of Samedi’s Day—the voodoo day of resurrection—Joan must learn to accept her destiny in order to stop the approaching threat to her family and friends.
