Overview

~All song lyrics in this story are from the CD, Weathervanes, by Steven Howell~ If I knew then, what I know now I’d like to think I’d choose a different way to go But, my mistakes have paved the way Down this dark and lonely, dead-end road Poised on a stool in a corner of yet another bar, in front of a crowd of maybe fifty, the harmonies he played reached out to those around him. The rhythms in his head stirred his heart. For a man of magic, a sorcerer with powers he had never asked for, his musical talents were sung spells. They were his weapon of defense against loneliness, bringing people to him like a siren’s song. Yet, for the most part, he let his music haunt the deeper needs of those who listened—letting musical phrasings stir wants unnamed or purposely forgotten. Although he felt but a living and breathing jukebox, these strangers who came to see him play were the only lives he could touch. He reached out to them with his songs. That is until one night one of Adam’s songs lures him back toward his hometown, and he calls out for Stacey, the one he was forced to leave behind all those years ago. Only this time she wants answers as to why he left, and maybe a bit of revenge for the heart he destroyed. I wrote The Sorcerer’s Songs using my husband's song lyrics to create the plot. It was a lot of fun to write, and a great writing exercise! I think I was so inspired by his music that the story practically wrote itself. Click Here to listen to the song that inspired the story called "The Road" from Steven's "Weathervanes" CD. I am just so excited, and so grateful to my husband, Steven Howell, for letting me use his music!

Meet the Author

Ever since she was young, Kiki Howell loved to listen to a well-woven tale with real characters, inspired plots, and delightful resolutions. Kiki could spend hours lost in a book, and soon she knew that creating lives, loves, and losses with just words had to be the greatest thing that she could do. To that end, she pursued her study of literature and writing, earning a bachelor’s degree in English. She then followed in a Master’s program in Creative Writing. “After a long break having my boys, I finally just had to write again. And, as soon as I gave the stories the space, they entered it. It’s both awesome and humbling to find the words in my mind become characters on a page and create their lives.” Kiki resides in the Midwest with her incredibly handsome and talented, singer/songwriter husband and two children. When she is not writing, she is spending time with her family, reading, baking or knitting.

    A really great paranormal romance!

    Adam is a scorecerer with magical powers and is afraid of it's strength, so therefore runs from everyone and everything that he's held dear, especially his one and only love Stacey. Too afraid of hurting her, he's lived the past twenty years on the road, a loner, with nothing or no one to keep him company except for his guitar and the string of meaningless one night stands in his wake.

    He can't get Stacey out of his head and decides to finally return to his home town. Only to find that Stacey has returned recently as well. His love for her soars, and he's willing to do anything to make things up to her,serenading her and all, and although devastated she wants nothing more than to enact what they should have had all those years before by becoming physically intimate. She finally pries his secret out of him as he saves her from becoming severely hurt. Scaring her at first, she then has to decide to take him how he is with powers and all, or to let him walk right back out of her life for good...

    Getting into this book I knew that this story was very heartfelt, and it made me not only enjoy, but appreciate it because of it's meaning. I loved that Ms. Howell derived this story through her husbands songs, and through the words encorporated a very enjoyable paranormal romance.

    Highly recommend. A must read.

    I found this book to be a great page turner. Howell works wonders casting her spell on the reader, creating an intriguing storyline that leaves you wanting more until the last page is absorbed.
