Moonless Blog Tour

Today, I'm excited to host Crystal Collier, on her Moonless Blog Tour. She has pulled out all the stops to make this blog tour as entertaining as possible.


Alexia’s nightmares become reality: a dead baron, red-eyed wraiths, and forbidden love with a man hunted by these creatures. After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with her beloved and risk becoming one of the Soulless.



MOONLESS is Jane Eyre meets Supernatural.

 “Is someone there?” she breathed, little more than a whisper.

Wheezing gurgles met her ears. She spun.
What kind of creature made noise like that? Had she imagined it as well?
She swallowed. The swift thump of her heart echoed into her ears. “Hello?”
A snicker rippled in a circle about her. She twisted to follow it, catching snatches of something—something moving, fast.
A growl.
She dashed headlong the way she’d come.
Movement erupted behind her.
Her skirts caught on the underbrush. They snagged and tore, twigs scratching her legs. She ran harder, one arm before her face to fend off the branches. They raked across her sleeve. She gasped as they cut into her flesh.
Alexia’s feet thudded the ground in rhythm, echoed by another distant set—faster ones.
Chest heaving, she sucked in air, but could not draw enough. Invisible fingers squeezed at her airways. Her lungs pulsed like she was being dragged under a great watery swell. The whoosh of leaves turned her head as an upright silhouette crashed through her periphery. Blackness blinked at the corners of her vision. Her muscles burned.
She would faint before she could outrun her pursuer!
She gulped in air. Perspiration chilled her skin. The rasp of her own breathing filled her ears.
“Help!” she screeched. Father would find her. He’d track her. “Father! Anyone!” But she’d gone miles. Even if he’d begun looking, she’d wandered too far.
A bough slapped her across the face. White light flashed. She blinked it away, uncertain whether her legs were still under her.
She couldn’t outrun this thing. No one would hear her, but she screamed anyway. “Help me!”
It was an empty plea.
Weight pummeled into her back. She flew forward as the ground rushed up.

    I like the scare factor.

    Hope the tour is going well so far.

      Here's the thing, I didn't realize I write "scary" stuff until I got a few reviews that pointed it out. Yikes. Well, I guess that happens when you've got roots in terror, eh?

    That was a scary excerpt! It made me want to look behind me. Eek! Great stuff, Crystal. 🙂

    Hi adorable Michelle and Crystal,

    Yes indeed, I have arrived.  Yay n'stuff!   Delighted to see your tour has visited this wonderful site.  The excerpt entices and may "Moonless" be a huge success in so many ways. Supernatural was filmed in the Vancouver area.  Last time I was back in Vancouver, they asked me to be a part of the show.  Some smart dude handed me a brush to sweep up the set.  

    Gary 🙂

      Thank you adorable Gary! At least you can say that you were on the set of a show… even if you were only the sweeper… LOL 🙂

    • Crystal Collier on December 1, 2013 at 1:17 am

      LOL! What an honor. 😉

    Wow! What a great excerpt. Super scary stuff Crystal.
