Paranormal October: Dissolve into the Paranormal with Andrea Heltsley

Paranormal October continues and today I welcome back to the blog author Andrea Heltsley. Andrea has a new release in the adult paranormal genre and it's part of the Dissolve series. She has given us two nice excerpts to whet our appetite so check them out. And make sure to enter the Giveaway at the end of the post ;-)

Cora is thrilled to leave high school behind and kick start her summer with her boyfriend and best friend, Nessa. In an unexpected turn of events, tragedy strikes and Cora turns to Nessa for help.

Cora and Nessa discover they are not alone and become entangled in things much bigger than they expect. As the two of them meet new allies, it’s obvious that clearing Cora’s name and going home seem like the least of their worries. The further they travel; the more complicated their lives become. Someone is after them and they are just getting started.

Through all the mess, I managed to have a peaceful dream. I dreamed I was an incandescent purple butterfly floating 
lightly through the summer air. I reveled in 

the warm night and the soft breeze that 

encompassed me. Looking up, I took in the 

sight of a gibbon’s moon waning in the inky 

night amongst twinkling stars.

Gentle as the breeze itself, I landed on a 

blade of grass. I was surrounded by an 

entire field of swaying grass, and I sank 

down to the soft earth. Time seemed to stand 

still as I took in the warm peaceful night.

That was when I woke up, and I mean I 

really woke up. I was lying in a meadow, the 

cool earth beneath me. My blue eyes snapped 

open in panic. I soon realized that the moon, 

the breeze, and the grass were no figment of 

my imagination.

Naked and panicked, my mind raced as 

all the thoughts course through it at once. 

Where was I? How was I going to get back to 

the motel? Exposed, I tried to steady my 

breathing for fear of a panic attack. I stood 

up, looking around under the cover of 

darkness. My heart raced and then skipped a 

beat as I saw the motel just off to the left 

of my field of vision.

True panic didn’t set in until I heard screams and gunshots. The loud pops shattered my hold on reality. The only thing I could feel was my need to get away from the awful scene. My body was going to unravel, right here, right now, in front of the agents. This had disaster written all over it, but I couldn’t stop it. It was like a safety mechanism built inside me—run, escape, hide, get away, or flee. I was consumed by these thoughts as they ran on repeat in my fragile mind.

It started at my feet, one foot, and then the other. The shoes I had on, emptied, the transition moving up my legs in a slow tingling feeling. My eyes had involuntarily closed, waiting for the peace of freedom dissolving would bring. This transition was slower than most. I couldn’t concentrate with my mind so busy.
