Destiny Awaits
The Wiccan Way Book 1
by Nicole Coverdale
Genre: Paranormal Urban Fantasy

For as long as the earth has been afloat, demons, witches, Gods, and angels have walked among us. Unknown to the human world, and now the time has come for four sisters to embrace a destiny…


Josslyn, Jade, and Julie Morgan never imagined magic was real. That is until they visited their grandmother’s grave. Now a journal their deceased mother left for them, a symbol they all know too well, and an earthquake in Minnesota has them all believing in the impossible…

They’re witches. Good witches, destined to keep the human world safe from the demonic forces that plague mankind, and now they have powers. Magical powers. Josslyn can freeze time, Jade can control electrical forces, and Julie can see the future. But, another surprise awaits them. Jasmine Nichols, a young woman who looks the spitting image of their mother. She’s their sister, and she can move things with her mind.

Adjusting to their new life as witches, coming to grips with the fact they have another sister, and to control their newfound powers the sisters find themselves on a trip to the past to get answers. But as they search for answers… an even greater threat is coming. The demonic world now knows about them, and they want one thing. Their powers.



“No. Wait!” Footsteps sounded on the sidewalk behind her, and she hurried down the sidewalk toward her car, walking as fast as her legs would carry her. Come on, Jasmine. Just a little further. Don’t let them catch up to you. Remember, this was a mistake. You don’t need anyone. “Wait!” A hand wrapped around her wrist, dragging her to a stop and she spun around. “Let me go!” she cried. “Please! I don’t want anything from you. It was a mistake coming here. I just want to go home.” “There’s a reason you showed up on our doorstep,” Julie said, crossing her arms in front of her chest and staring at her. “You might as well tell us, because we’re not going anywhere until you do.” Jasmine let out a long sigh, withdrawing the folder from her bag and handing it to her. “I think I’m your sister.” “What!” Josslyn lunged forward, grabbing the folder from her. “Wait a minute. Your name is Jasmine?” Jasmine nodded, “Yes.” “It’s another J,” Julie murmured. “Julie! Shh!” Josslyn skimmed through the file, her eyes widening. “I don’t believe this! As far as I know, Mom was never pregnant with another child!” “That’s because I’m older than you,” Jasmine said, pointing to the folder. “Look at the birthdate. I was born six months before you, Josslyn. January of 1984.” “Joss! Look!” Julie pointed at Jasmine’s wrist. “It’s the J!” “The J?” Jasmine glanced at the tattoo lying on the inside of her wrist. “I’ve had this thing forever!” “Or maybe it means something,” Josslyn muttered under her breath, still scanning through the file. “So they gave you up?” she asked, still not entirely convinced. “Why?” “A question I would love answered myself,” Jasmine said. “And they didn’t just give me up. They left me on the doorstep of a damned fire station! You have no idea what I went through. The endless foster homes I went to, the years of abuse, of neglect, of feeling like I didn’t matter! And all this time, I could have lived there!” She pointed to the house behind them. “God, I am so jealous of you!” “Jasmine, I’m sorry.” Julie reached forward, grasping her hand in hers. “For what you went through. But you’re here now, and man, do you look like her!” “Like who?” “Mom.”

Once Upon a Hallow's Eve
The Wiccan Way Book 2

On all Hallow’s Eve, as Josslyn, Jade, Julie, and Jasmine look to have a good ole time at the annual masquerade party, someone is planning to take away the very happy endings they grew up with…

Life has been anything but easy for Josslyn, Jade, Julie, and Jasmine ever since they found out they were witches. After an epic showdown with Satan four months ago, things are finally slowing down. Jade has gotten her bar and restaurant up and running. Both Julie and Jasmine have gone back to school. Josslyn… she’s still struggling with what she wants to do with her life. But as Halloween rolls up, they all know one thing. They want to have a good time!
Little do they know an evil witch is threatening to ruin their four-month hiatus from the demonic world. Sucking them each into a different fairytale. Fairytales, whose endings have been altered. Now it’s up to Josslyn, Jade, Julie, and Jasmine to right the fairytales before happy endings cease to exist.




 “Can I have this dance?”
Josslyn turned from where she was still standing in the doorway. Eyeing the man in front of her, his face hidden by a white and red colored mask. She shrugged. “What the hell? It is a party after all.” She laid her hand in his, and they headed toward the dance floor. You do look beautiful,” the man said, as they swayed to the music. He placed his hands on her hips, and Josslyn sighed, staring up at him. I’ve missed this, she thought, wrapping her fingers around his strong shoulders. Being free. Having fun. Being wild. Ever since Tyler had left, she’d felt nothing like herself. That was going to change. Thank you,” she said, as he spun her in a circle. She laughed, twirling back to him. “And thank you for the dance. It was quite nice of you.” What can I say? I needed a dance with the ice queen before she disappears forever.” Wait. What?” Josslyn stumbled back, jerking free from the man’s grip. “Who are you?” The man just smiled. “Oh, I think you know.” Demon.” Josslyn narrowed her eyes, lifting her hands and freezing the room. What the…” Jade, Julie, Sky, and Jasmine all jerked toward her. “Josslyn, what the hell?” Demon!” Josslyn shouted, whipping her mask off and pointing to the man standing in front of her. Well, well, well, if it isn’t the four lovely sisters, and their lovely angel.” The demon drew his mask off, his pale, white face glimmering under the low light as his small, yellow eyes leered at them. “It’s nice to see you all, the ones who took out Satan. Not that he was much of a challenge. He was dying, after all.” Are you always this rude to your superiors?” Jade asked, crossing her arms in front of her chest. “Satan might have been dying, but he was still powerful. More powerful than you, I’m guessing. Who are you?” Just the messenger… that’s going to send you on a lovely trip.” A trip?” Jade lifted her hand, a ball of energy appearing in her palm. “I think the only one going anywhere, is you.” She threw the energy ball toward him. Jade, Jade, Jade. You really are a spitfire, aren’t you?” The demon asked, disappearing in a flash, and reappearing behind her. He wrapped his hand around her throat, leaning in close. “I may not be as powerful as Satan, Jade, but I know all about you four. What makes you tick. Nah uh.” He lifted his hand, freezing Josslyn, Julie, Jasmine and Sky in place as they started to run toward them. H-how did you do that?” Jade gasped out, wincing as his fingers dug into her throat. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve,” the demon said, laughing. “I’m a trickster, Jade, and Halloween is my favorite time of year. Plus, my master has been studying you four, for months now. You threaten her, and she wants you gone so that she can control the underworld.” He smiled. “Have a nice ride, ladies and gentleman.” He snapped his fingers, the ground giving away underneath them. “Where happy endings cease to exist.”

Crossroads
The Wiccan Way Book 3

When light and dark collide, one sister must make a choice that could change their lives… forever.

In the wake of the tragedy that struck on Halloween night, Josslyn, Jade, Julie, and Jasmine are shocked to learn the truth about Sky. He has no heart—someone stole it and now they are bound to get it back. When Jade, Jasmine, and Sky embark on a trip to the heavens to find his heart, they realize things are not as they seem. Black angels have taken over the heavens and they want one thing—Jasmine and Sky dead.
But the heavens have a silver lining. A psychic, who is tasked with helping Jade find the answers to the questions she seeks by taking her on a journey to her past, present, and future. What she sees changes everything, but time is running out. For she can only focus on one thing… the threat to the future.
For down on earth, something has gone terribly wrong. For the underworld has risen to the surface and one sister has turned to the dark side.


Y-you love me?” Jasmine asked. “But Sky! We’ve barely started dating!” Let’s call it love at first sight,” Sky said, winking at her. He glanced back at Myron. “You can’t help who you love, Myron, and even if I could, I wouldn’t want to.” Then you will die!” Myron shouted, raising his hand. The door behind him swung open. Two men and three women dressed in black walked out the doors. Each of them holding a bow and arrow. The black angels?” Sky asked, his mouth dropping open. “But it’s forbidden for them to be up here! They were banished!” Not when there’s a bounty on your head,” Myron said, grinning. “Goodbye Sky.” And he disappeared in a reign of light. Myron!” Sky shouted, out of the corner of his eye, he caught sight of an arrow coming their way. “Jasmine, get down!” he shouted, wrapping his arms around her and shoving her to the floor. “We have to get out of here!” But how?” Jasmine asked, raising her head to stare at the angels. “These are black angels? But I thought they poisoned hearts!” Those are dark angels, these are black angels. They come from the dark angels, only, they have weapons. Arrows and knives that are laced with scorpion venom. It can kill you or me in an instant. Come on!” He grabbed her by the arm, dragging to her feet. “We have to go!” But where! There’s five of them, and only two of us. We’ll never outrun them! Plus, you’re weak, Sky.” I might be weak, but I still know these heavens better than anyone else up here,” Sky said, sending her a wink. “I know all the good hiding spots, now come on! We gotta get a head start on them!”

What are your top 10 favorite books/authors?

Favorite authors, Allison Brennan, Nora Roberts, Catherine Coulter, Sherilyn Kenyon, Lisa Jackson, Nicholas Sparks, Sara Shepard, Bella Forrest, Stephen King, and Cassandra Clare.

What book do you think everyone should read?
Young adult books, you should definitely read the pretty little liar books from Sara Shepard. Thriller/Mystery, you can’t go wrong with Allison Brennan. She’s brilliant! Romance… Nora Roberts was the first romance I ever read, and I never went back. Want a tear jerker? A heart tugger? Nicholas Sparks is the answer!

How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing since I was a little girl. Doodling stories in dozens of notebooks, letting my thoughts swirl. In a way, it was kind of my therapy, but I never “really” started writing stories to be published until I was well into high school, and even then, it wasn’t ready for the world. So in all honesty, my seriousness for being an author started probably in 2014.

Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write?
I usually have them mapped out before I start the book, but sometimes, a new character will pop up when I’m writing.

What kind of research do you do before you begin writing a book?
Just the basics, it’s when I’m in my editing/rewriting phase that I really do my research. I like to focus on the plot/the outline of the book when I’m first writing it.

Do you see writing as a career?
I do. It’s the best career anyone could have! You can be anyone you want. You can be a police officer, a witch, a zombie hunter. Really, it’s limitless, and being able to bring a new world to life is amazing!

What do you think about the current publishing market?
For a new author, it’s really hard to get out there. Most agents these days, already have their list and have no interest in signing up new clients, which is why I went the self-publishing route. This way, I’m in control of the story. I know I won’t lose my voice, my story, and I hold all the rights to it.

Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?
I’m partial to thrillers/mysteries, but I love pretty much any genre as long as there’s a good story to go along with it.

Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?
Silence! It’s too distracting with noise.

Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
One at a time, I don’t like to get too ahead of myself. Plus it’s a continuous series, so there’s no sense in doing multiple stories at a time.
Pen or type writer or computer?
Laptop! It’s the one thing I can’t live without! It’s kind of like my baby in a way.

What made you want to become an author and do you feel it was the right decision?
I’ve always wanted to be an author. I’ve always been in awe of those, growing up, who could bring stories to life with just a few words and I wanted to do that! I wanted to build a new world. I wanted to create characters. I wanted to create something, someone could disappear into, and I don’t regret it for a moment!

A day in the life of the author?
A day in the life of an author for me, is usually finding time to write. With another full-time job, it can sometimes be difficult, but there are days where I can just sit and write for hours. Other days, it’s all about the reading, and rewriting. Really, each day is different.

Describe your writing style.
I start with a thought, and just go from there. I don’t outline anything, I just write. Then once the story is complete, I read, re-write, edit, and do my research. Then I set the book aside for about and do the process all over again. Usually, after the third read through I send it off to my editor who usually gets it back to me in about a week.

What makes a good story?
Characters, the plot line, and the emotion. If you can’t feel what the character is feeling, their every emotion, their guilt, their pain, you haven’t done your job as an author.
What are they currently reading?

What is your writing Kryptonite?
When I’m writing a story, I’ll sometimes get idea for the next book in the series and I’ll want to go and start writing that one right way. But I have to remind myself, you have to finish one, before finishing the other.

What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?
When I first started out, writing from a male’s perspective was the hardest thing in the world! But when I started dating my boyfriend, who has two brothers, it got a lot easier after meeting them and getting to interact with them. Perception is everything.

How long on average does it take you to write a book?
It depends. Sometimes a week or two. Sometimes a month. It depends what’s going on in my life at that point, and the story I’m writing.

Do you believe in writer’s block?
I don’t necessarily believe in writer’s block, but I do believe sometimes we hit a snag in our writing, where we don’t know what to write next. When that happens, I take a step back, think about what I’m trying to write, and I try to find a different way to write it. Sometimes, taking a break can be good to.
