Author Carmen Stefanescu is in the House–Cover Reveal for Till Life Do Us Apart

12 May

When I found out that fellow author Carmen Stefanescu has a new novel coming out June 9th, I reached out and invited her to stop by to tell us a little about it. Who doesn’t want to hear about myths, ghosts and oh, reincarnation?

Carmen, the floor is yours!

Cami, thank you so much for having me as your guest today. You know my interest in anything odd – paranormal, myths, legends – all that is out of the normal boundaries. Reincarnation and chat with ghosts can be included, too.

I’m thrilled to be here, and excited to share the cover for my upcoming release Till Life Do Us Part.

Blurb

Barbara Heyer can hear voices of dead people. They whisper of their deaths, seek comfort for those left behind, and occasionally even warn her about future events. But when Barbara’s brother, Colin, is accused of murder, it will take more than her gift to prove his innocence.

Becoming smitten with the handsome investigator, Detective Patrick Fischer, is a serious complication given his assignment to her brother’s case. Barbara senses there is something far deeper—and perhaps much older—than the surface attraction between them. Could that be why she’s visited by a mysterious woman named Emma in her dreams? Could past life regression tie all the seemingly unconnected events together?

Barbara and Patrick must overcome heartache to find the truth to save Colin, and perhaps themselves.

Author Bio

carmen

Carmen Stefanescu resides in Romania, the native country of the infamous vampire Count Dracula, but where, for about 50 years of communist dictatorship, just speaking about God, faith, reincarnation or paranormal phenomena could have led someone to great trouble – the psychiatric hospital if not to prison.

Teacher of English and German in her native country and mother of two daughters, Carmen Stefanescu survived the grim years of oppression, by escaping in a parallel world that of the books.

She has dreamed all her life to become a writer, but many of the things she wrote during those years remained just drawer projects. The fall of the Ceausescu’s regime in 1989 and the opening of the country to the world meant a new beginning for her. She started publishing. Several of her poems were successfully published in a collection of Contemporary English Poems, Muse Whispers vol.1 and Muse Whispers vol.2 by Midnight Edition Publication, in 2001 and 2002.

Her first novel, Shadows of the Past, was released in 2012 by Wild Child Publishing, USA.

Carmen joined the volunteer staff at Marketing For Romance Writers Author blog and is the coordinator of #Thursday13 posts.

Review–Shadows Of The Past by Carmen Stefanescu

7 Sep

A while ago I invited fellow Romanian author Carmen Stefanescu to stop by with a guest post. Since then I read her book titled Shadows of the Past and decided the book is an amazing read deserving of a review on my part.

Shadows Of The Past is the story of two young women, Genevieve and Anne their life, love and of the misfortunes they meet and how they handle the evil that wants to destroy them. It is a cross-time romance, with a creepy villain and beautifully described worlds.
The two stories, Anne’s and Genevieve’s, are equally compelling because these two women who lived over 500 years apart are connected by something. The legend of the cursed forest, of witchcraft, strange rituals and a forbidden love build a suspenseful, paranormal/ romance novel that will keep you glued to the pages.
The dreams and visions the protagonist of the modern day part of the novel – Anne- experienced set the stage for the unfolding of a story, brilliantly told, moving through her as a past life apparition, Genevieve. I loved the fact that I could relate to the characters; especially Genevieve’s tragic destiny made me sad. It’s important when the author manages to make me cry and laugh at the same time with the characters she created. Although from the cover of this book it would seem that it is more adult in nature, this novel would also be appropriate for a YA audience.
Carmen Stefanescu did a great job in creating this fictional world with such distinction and giving life to so many other characters. If you are fond of a classy romance mixed with a lot of historical background and suspense, then you’ll love this. 5 star all around!
