When a god gives you rainbows, should you trust him?

In the summer of 1897, Delilah Cats is over-the-moon about her engagement to Laurent. However, her sister Sassafras remembers Laurent as the kid who was all-too-obsessed with pain. When Delilah does not return after going off to New Orleans with Laurent, Sassafras worries. However, she has much more to worry about than her willful sister's sadistic beau.

There is war brewing in other realms and the weave that separates the realms is tearing. The spiders spin furiously to try to close it, even as the God of Pain prepares for his assault on the mortal world.
A dragon appears in the skies amidst a terrible thunderstorm. And Agatha, the earthbound goddess of the swamps awakes from her long sleep and summons her nymphs.

Grumwald, the kind of the goblins, is willing to take a bet that Delilah is tangled up in all of this realm business. But it's going to take more than one glass of whiskey to convince Delilah's brother Jesse that she's in trouble.

Rips in the Weave is the first book in the Mama Cats story arc of the Dime Store Novel series, an urban fantasy novella about a world that appears normal unless you look close enough to see the fairies and the goblins. It is the prequel to The Desert Rose.

Meet the Author

Rachelle Reese has been making up stories for over 40 years. Her earliest stories were acted out by Barbie, Skipper, and Ken. Now her stories are acted out by the voices in her head.

She has an MA in English from San Jose State University, where she wrote poetry and fiction. She ran the Art @ 8 open poetry readings and performed frequently at galleries and other venues. She is a self-taught programmer and was the first student at SJSU to complete her thesis as an interactive work of fiction.

After meeting her husband and frequent co-author, John E. Miller, she began role-playing. Many of their story ideas and characters emerge during a game of Dungeons and Dragons, Call of Cthulhu, or World of Darkness. However, the mythos of their world is their own.

Rachelle writes fantasy, paranormal urban fantasy, and a bit of horror. She and John are the authors of two short story collections: Bones of the Woods and Mind of a Mad Man. They are also the authors of the Dime Store Novel urban fantasy series. Rachelle has published several short stories in anthologies. Her latest was "The Rescue," published in The Bitter End: Tales of Nautical Terror. Rachelle also writes training courses and certification prep materials for programmers, network administrators, and computer support professionals.

Rachelle lives with her husband in rural Missouri. They raise cattle and donkeys. They are devoted to their dogs...who pretty much run the household. She enjoys a good dry wine, immersing herself in a book, dancing, and long walks in the woods. She has recently taken up quilting. She blogs at http://rachelleandjohn.blogspot.com.
