Dark Whispers and Debra Webb

I’m excited to introduce you to an author I’ve just recently come to know through a mutual friend, Debra Webb. Debra is generous and kind and I think you’ll love this post and her giveaway!

From Debra,

I’ve written lots of books but The Faces of Evil is one of my favorite series. Former FBI Profiler and Deputy Chief of Major Crimes Jess Harris Burnett and the ensemble cast of characters in the Faces of Evil stories stole my heart. Even after the series was finished it seemed, I simply couldn’t put those characters behind me. I wanted more Jess and Dan!!!

So I teamed up with Harlequin Intrigue to put a new spin on the Faces of Evil. I hope you’ll grab a copy of ENVY, the prequel for the new Faces of Evil. It’s a short story and free at most ebook sellers! ENVY bridges the move from the old Faces of Evil to the new for readers who’ve followed Jess’s journey from the beginning. But don’t worry, even if you haven’t read the others you’ll love Jess and the team beginning with DARK WHISPERS. Each one will be a standalone novel you can find wherever books and ebooks are sold. DARK WHISPERS gives Lieutenant Clint Hayes his own story. Clint is a damned good Birmingham PD detective who now works with Jess at her private investigations firm.

Clint is charged with solving the strange happenings in Natalie Drummond’s life, starting with a missing body! Natalie has suffered a traumatic brain injury and her life is just settling back down. She needs help desperately. Clint is definitely the man for the job. She needs his steady hand and his keen insight as well as his protection—someone wants her dead. I’m certain you’ll enjoy the journey with these two characters. I surely loved writing their story.

51d4rw2CjoL._SX315_BO1,204,203,200_Be on the lookout for STILL WATERS, the next book in the Faces of Evil series, coming October 1! STILL WATERS introduces a new investigator working for Jess Harris Burnett. Sean Douglas is back in Alabama after a career crash in Los Angeles where the client he was assigned to protect died. Sean needed to come home to heal but when he’s assigned a case with a local celebrity he isn’t so sure he can handle the pressure or the woman. Amber Roberts is either a potential victim or a murderer, Birmingham PD can’t seem to decide which. Be sure to watch for the release of STILL WATERS!

You might notice that many of my characters are striving toward recovery from tragedy. Natalie Drummond has struggled mightily to recover from the injury that stole the person she once was and turned her into someone who can’t trust her brain to work the way it should. I’d love to hear how you overcame an injury or loss that changed your life.

Thanks Debra. Now simply comment below with how you’ve over come an injury or tragedy and Debra will give away 10 signed paperbacks to 10 lucky winners, from anywhere in the world.  Comment away folks, and let’s give away some books!!!

  1. As usual, Debra hit it out of the park with this one! Great characters and a terrific story!

      • LOL. Yes it is. Don’t like the formal name too much. Thinking of changing it. Never use the formal if I can help it.

        • By formal do you mean Patricia? My name is Patti and I seldom run across anyone who spells it with an “i”. My parents were big Patti Page fans when I was born, hence the name. Sadly, I can’t carry a tune, but oh well.

          • Yes, Patricia. I changed the spelling to “i” when I was 18. My parents never acknowledged it, always wrote Patty on stuff. It wasn’t until two years ago when my Dad was dying that he acknowledged the “i”.

  2. The loss of my grandma who until.she passed was my best friend, she was always there good bad or Indifferent. Just the pat of her hand with her smile seemed to make everything ok. She taught me I was stronger than I thought possible. The day she passed I had laid with her in her hospital bed all day, when I got home we were called right back. She requested to go home and pass, but we all had to agree. That wasthe hardest thing I have ever had todo. She made it three hours after we got home. To this day not sure how i made it but now i always feel her pat on my hand and smile on her face.

  3. My granddaughter died from being run over in our driveway, I don’t think you get over it, you just keep going on one day at a time. Donamaekutska7@gmail.com also I started to work outside of the house and met and talked to people and it helped.

  4. I almost died in May, so I just enjoy each day as it comes! I make sure and tell my husband, my daughter, and my son each day how much I love them. Each day I wake up is an amazing day!

    • OMG! So sorry to hear this but happy to hear you are okay now. I am a cancer survivor and life is different for me now as well. I don’t sweat the small stuff, have no patience for ridiculous drama and live life to its fullest. Sometimes near death experiences have a way of making you see how precious life actually is!!!! Glad all is well Penny.

      • I totally agree with you! Don’t sweat the small stuff and ignore all the drama! There’s way too much drama, especially on Facebook, thus my break from there. I’m so happy to hear about you being a cancer survivor!

  5. I’ve learned during times of crisis to take one second at a time. When you get to the point you can handle one second you increase the amount of time incrementally until you get to where you want to be. One hour to one day. Whatever works for you. If you have to go back to one second at a time that’s ok. I’ve made it through several severe crisis using this method. It works for me. Hope it works for you.

  6. Upon investigating a reason for several falls, it has been determined that I have MS. Turns out having to quit my physically demanding job, was the best thing for me, physically. MS keeps our bodies from recovering fast, so I have had to slow down, not try to do so much, which gives me more time for reading. I now have a lot of answers to problems I started having.

    • Nancy, you are an inspiration, you are looking at the bright side and that is so fabulous. Sorry to hear about the MS, but so happy you have been looking at the silver lining. More time for reading is a great silver lining.

  7. I’ve been falling for no reason since I was a teenager. As I got older, it was worse. I fell down the stairs after throwing my bouquet 44 years ago. At about 52, my insurance company ran every test known, including neurological tests. Doctors found the reason for falling was maybe mini strokes, stress, migraines or something they couldn’t find.

    I’ve gotten a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education, taught kindergarten (3yr – 5 yr), 1st – 3rd grade, and been active in my church. I have child, husband and dog. We’ve been all over the country on vacations. We went tent camping and trailer camping. I traveled for my job for 14 years.

    I had to leave my job at 53 years old. I used a cane, a walker with wheels, a seat and a scooter. What I’m saying is I did all that I’ve wanted. I just had to make adjustments in how I did the activities, how intensive they were, and I paid attention to how my body felt.

    • Thank you for sharing your story Vicki. I think so many people fail to recognize what their bodies are trying to tell them. We are too busy, brush little things off as a nuisance, etc. If we stopped and paid attention, we’d all be in a better position to diagnose things better/earlier. I had a friend a long time ago tell me that God tries giving us little hints and tips that something needs to be adjusted and when we don’t listen, we get hit on the head. I’ve tried to live by that and pay attention.

      I’m glad you’ve found ways to keep doing what you wanted. That’s fantastic.

  8. I am about to celebrate 60…which is a milestone for many things considering I wasn’t supposed to be! My mother was told she couldn’t have children, so she married late in life. 15 months later I was born: double pneumonia put me in NICU( she smoked carrying me) and numerous unknowns lay ahead. And while they were dealing with my issues, my SISTER was conceived. She was born 15 months after me and where I had issues…she seemed to have none.
    Lymphaegeoma surgery, flat feet, left handed, a lisp to beat the band and a stutter. I was a tall child with corrective shoes, glasses at three… My mother sent me to ballet in hope I would stop clomping around…and singing lessons to help with the stutter. What came out of those was a love of the Arts and a fairly good singing voice.
    But it was my parents’ deaths at 55 and 58 that really set me free. Corrective braces (second set) and facial surgery got rid of the lisp. My confidence rose as I fought and won the battle to return to school, investing my inheritance in a BSW, Masters in Counseling a Church History, my Ordination degree, and later, an equivalent Masters in Interim work. Thirty years after my parents died, the rest of the issues surfaced, and neurologic disabilities forced retirement and the end of my singing in groups. Now I read and review books and do some needlecrafting
    Not bad for a kid who wasn’t supposed to be here

  9. I’ve overcome a back injury from bending over too fast brushing my teeth at the sink (didn’t want to splash) worked my 8 hour shift that evening, because I had traded shifts. So because I couldn’t put my right foot down,had a disk trimmed (back surgery) in 1976. Now I practice better body mechanics and do exercises that strengthen my core, don’t twist, bend at the knees to lift and don’t lift above my shoulders.

      • PJ, Thanks for writing about TBI. My sons did youth hockey and a father of a team member gave talks about concussions to the parents and coaches. An orthopedic surgeon that I worked with took care of football players who had bone injuries along with their high risk for brain injury from years of tackling.
