Sneak peek at Fumbled Faith

Happy December Everyone!!!

In light of a new month, I've decided to give you a small taste of my upcoming novel, Fumbled Faith. Enjoy. 



About the Book:

Kolten Caige focused on two things: football and his future. He wanted nothing more than to have the perfect life for his family. All his hard work and determination was about to pay off as he prepared to play in the biggest game of his life; the NFL Super Bowl. Feeling on top of the world, Kolten headed onto the field while everything he loved in life was suddenly ripped away from him. His pregnant wife, Grace and his princess, Lexi were all who he could think about when he looked at his newborn son lying in the NICU.
In this heartbreaking contemporary romance, Kolten discovers healing in the most unexpected places while his grief nearly drove him over the edge. Though his son fought for life, he contemplated ending his. Then Savanna stepped in, giving him a sense of life while sending his emotions into overdrive. Desperate to pull himself together for his son, Kolten escapes using Savanna as his outlet after her persistent support through his struggles; whether he wanted it or not.
Emotionally damaged and lonely by his grief, Kolten fears his mind has moved on while his heart fumbles with the past.

******
Sneak Peek:

I should have known traffic would have been insane since we were driving downtown during the Super Bowl. The start of the game filled the car as Lexi and I cheered on Kolten from the car. We had been stuck for the past twenty minutes in the congestion of traffic from out of town fans trying to make their way to the stadium. While listening to Kolten’s game, Lexi and I cheered loudly while Lexi kicked the back of the seat and clapped her hands. She was daddy’s girl who enjoyed his games and it broke my heart to know that we were late for the first time this season.
Kolten had taken the field and by now had noticed our absence, but Lexi had been a hand full this morning. I knew all the right turns and shortcuts to the stadium, but I didn’t factor in the others who attempted the same route. I felt a jerk and didn’t realize what happened. I heard squealing tires, metal crunching, and glass breaking. By the time I realized what happened, the car had been hit from behind so hard it forced my small SUV into oncoming traffic, which was flowing at a normal pace. As the truck hit us, it came to a standstill while shattering into so many pieces. The jolt caused Lexi to scream “Daddy” before she went completely silent. I had become disorientated while trying so hard to stay awake, but I continued to drift in and out of consciousness. At one point, I was fully aware of the blood taste in my mouth while the warmth of it slide down my face. I hit the side of my head off the window, cracking it. My lungs contracted as I forced myself to breathe. Pain radiated from every aspect within as I struggled to find Lexi in the backseat. “Lex, honey…” my broken voice called out to the complete silence. “Baby, answer me.” I pleaded. Nothing. Complete silenced.
My instincts kicked in and I fought so hard to get my seatbelt off but failed. It was jammed. I felt as if I were trapped in a steel prison. Sirens blared off in the distance as I fumbled for my cell phone. After several attempts, I managed to grab the strap to my purse and dig through the contents until I felt it. I knew Kolten wouldn’t answer, but I had to call him. Oddly enough, I knew that these were the last words I’d get to say to him. Once the voicemail picked up, I started rambling. “Baby, it’s me. I’m sorry. I love you so much and I’m so proud of you. Remember, to push on and never give up. I’m with you always. I love you so so so much.” My voice trailed off as my tears stung my face. I hung up the phone in time for one last prayer, “Lord, please let my baby be okay. Help Kolten from this point forward and don’t let him forget how much I love him.” The sounds of tires screeching to a halt slowly drifted off as blackness surrounded me.

#NewRelease #YAParanormal- Forbidden Destiny by RaeBeth McGee-Buda



Forbidden Destiny by Raebeth McGee-Buda
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Releasing: October 1, 2017
Cover Designer: Emcat Designs



ABOUT:
We dream of our future and what we want to be when we grow up. These dreams are who we come to be: unless our destiny has other plans. Sophie Hathorn stumbled upon her destiny through her love of books. She learns she's part of a legacy of the most powerful witches, but with a twist. She's also part Wizard, which makes her the first and only Hybrid.

Struggling with her newly found life, Sophie must prepare and train for the biggest fight of her life. Eros, a Shapeshifter, and Succubus plan to overtake Sophie's hometown and call it his own. He's created an army of Cambion to help him fight. In the midst of the threat, the Wizard's Council comes into town to help Sophie prepare for the fight of her life when she finds herself romantically attracted to Mason; the son of the most powerful Wizard. However, the law has been set for centuries by the Goddess, Pax that no witch or wizard shall be involved romantically.

Not only is Sophie pressured to become the best Hybrid, but she's also fighting the internal battle of the feelings she has for Mason. Will she be able to handle the physical and emotional battle she's about to face or will she fall short?

***


Three days passed in a blur and Sophie was on edge. The Blackguard was due to arrive anytime during the day, which made her nervous. Time was ticking away, getting closer to the inevitable. Soon she would find herself making the journey into the Underworld and using the abilities she'd trained hard with Mason to perfect flawlessly. Today wasn't any different. Mason had her up right before sunrise and they were out the door to watch the beauty of the sun taking over the heavens, while birds dashed around graciously through the skies.

The past few days had been such a learning experience for Sophie. She learned exactly what she was capable of and learned more about the man who had, not only her heart but was connected in spirit. Surprisingly, he was a bit of a nerd under the tough outer side. He enjoyed some light reading and relaxing. Photography was his passion and he loved romance. He was a hopeless romantic. Three days of being alone with him, he had managed to fully win Sophie's heart and vowed to do whatever he had to while she was gone to change the laws of the land. They were meant to be together and he was destined to change anything that stopped it.

"What's on your mind?" Mason asked since Sophie was missing each power hit he knew she easily could have avoided.

"I'm an anxious mess," she replied.

"What else is new?" Mason joked.

"Hey, I may be a mess, but I'm a hot mess. Plus, you would be too if, in a matter of a few days, you'd literally be going through hell." Sophie rebutted.

"True. Wanna sit? Take a break?" Mason asked, motioning toward the large rock Sophie came to know well.

"Sure."

They walked hand in hand over to the rock and sat down. Nothing felt as good as being with Mason and knowing he had her back. "I seriously have no idea why I volunteered to do this. I mean, I do, but I don't. My gram is there, waiting. However, I have no idea what I may face and I'm not looking forward to the overly hot and nasty environment. The stench is enough," Sophie rambled.

"Shhh, let's not focus on that. You're doing what you are meant to do Sophie. Take pride in that. There are people out there who are fighting to find out their true purpose. Yours found you, not the other way around." Mason said.

After taking a deep breath and exhaling, "I know but not everyone is fighting Lucifer in Hell," she finished looking off in the distance.

"I can't tell you how to do this. Nor can I tell ya how to succeed, but what I can say is that I'm proud of you for trying. It kills me knowing you'll be doing this without me."

"It's what I was born to do...right?" Sophie asked, giving an unsure, yet questioning looks toward Mason.

"It's pretty messed up that you're in this position, but I think it's admirable for you to take a stand and do what needs to be done. Fear has nothing on you."

"Riighhhtt!" Sophie rolled her eyes.

"Let's get back to practice. Don't wanna waste what time we have left. The Blackguard should be there by the time we get back." Mason said, standing up.

Silenced by Raebeth McGee-Buda (Official Book Trailer)

Silenced 2: The Overtaking Book Trailer


****
About her books: Background and Purpose
Many times I have been asked why I decided to write the Silenced Series. The most simple way to put it is that it's part of my story. Throughout my teen years, I battled depression and anxiety and I fought the battle of self-harm. I feel that most people do not take this kind of battle serious, therefore disregarding the signs of someone indirectly crying out for help. My goal for The Silenced Series is to create awareness.

****



About the Series
SILENCED


What people think of Silenced:
" an excellent and important book. It brings teen depression and the phenomenon known as cutting to the forefront and could let someone with these maladies know that they aren't alone with what they are feeling."

"This book kept me very intrigued though it is a very triggering book."

" This book doesn't feel very polished, and I like that. Coming from a place of experience this book covers cutting in a very real way. It isn't a quick fixed glamorized problem and this doesn't make it seem that way unlike some other books that I have read on the topic."



****



SILENCED: THE OVERTAKING



What people think of The Overtaking....

" This book has more than only a few vital themes that makes it a must read. It explores the act of cutting as a coping mechanism in all its dark gruesome truth. The author never backs down, never glosses over it. Never makes it other than it is."

"...gives insight into mental illness and helps others to know that it is ok to get help with it."

"Book 1 & 2 has opened my eyes to a world I could never imagine"

Get ready for the HYBRID.... #forbiddendestiny



FORBIDDEN DESTINY
(BOOK ONE OF THE HYBRID SERIES)



You've asked for it, and I'm here to tell you that the newest Witch is in town. Sophie will be making an enchanting journey into another world and YOU are invited. 

So, without wasting any more time...
Take a peek into her journey below:

Excerpt:

"Evil is upon us more than ever, child. The situation which faces us is one only those who have mastered the greatest magic can fight. We have demonic forces to face. Eros, an Incubus, has taken a vacancy in a tiny, dilapidated home on Lyons Avenue here in town. He plans to take over humanity. The Incubus is a shape shifter with power beyond belief."
"Shape shifters usually aren't our problem. Witches deal with nature and those of good." Emma commented.
"You are correct, but Eros’ intentions are not the best. He has been transitioning between his usual self to a Succubus. His immediate plan is to impregnate a mortal woman with his spawn, which he calls Cambion. The Cambion are demonic nature." The Goddess explained.
"How is it possible?" Sophie wondered.
"Eros is known for his abilities to shape shift into whatever he requires. It can be an animal, a human, or another demon. The possibilities are infinite. He's been presenting himself to human men as an attractive woman. He gets them to lay with him by influencing his victim with mind control. Once he has full control over the man, he steals their seed." Pax declared.
"What! That's screwed up and sickening! How can he do that? Isn't it against the force of nature?" Sophie interrupted.
"Yes, and that's why all good forces are called in. Once Eros has the seed, he shifts into an irresistible man for a mortal woman. He uses mind control on them, influencing them into bed where he plants the seeds of a mortal man and his own into the woman. The result is a Cambion."
"What does he stand to achieve by doing this?" Stella wondered.
"The plan is to construct a Cambion army. With this army, he plans to wreak havoc on earth. All life will be in complete control of evil. That will throw off the real balance of nature. Thus, not good for anyone or anything."
"What do they look like?" Emma asked.
"They appear as human but have power! They are devious and grow to the size of a seven-year-old mortal child within six months. They show no sign of life before the human age of seven, in other words, they have no pulse and don't breathe. They survive off of their mother during the six-month transition, slowly killing their mother while feeding off her energy and nutrition." Pax explained.
"Unbelievable!" Stella exclaimed, baffled.
"What happens once they grow to the size of the seven-year-old human?" Sophie asked, fiddling with her pillow.
"Eros will train them. Teach them to use their powers for evil so they can continue to grow their army. They will seek out feeble women who are depressed and alone. Eros makes those women experience a temporary calm, making them feel loved once again. He does the same to men. The guys he chooses are at their lowest of lows. He boosts them up with an attractive woman and makes them feel useful again."
"Let me get this right; he waits for those who are down in the dumps and uses them as prey?" Sophie asked.
"For the lack of better words, yes, I would say so." Pax agreed.
"You called on my dear granddaughter to help with this fight, didn't you?" Stella interjected.
"I do not say this with much happiness, but yes I did. Sophie has unique abilities, and with the right training and practice, she can become powerful. I feel she'll be stronger than Eros himself."
"I can't do something like that. I'm just a small town girl who knows how to give one hell of a massage. I'm not the person you're looking for, Goddess. You have the wrong woman."
"My daughter, I know what power you behold. For it was I, who gave it to you. I know you will be remarkable and do immeasurable things with proper knowledge and practice. I wish we were able to introduce you to the 'other world' before this moment, however, due to the circumstances we cannot change, you don't have much time."

I'll be working hard to finish up the first book in the Hybrid Series; Forbidden Destiny. This is a paranormal romance series with a twist. Take a peek into Sophie's life by reading the small preview below. I hope you enjoy!!!

#loveyoumore update....

Woah... this has been a ride, to say the least.

#loveyoumore is coming along smoothly but it's an emotional one for me. Especially
since it's basically based on my life for the past 12 years. 

Of course, I've added some twists and turns that are fictional to make it a bit more interesting. But
the plot idea is following my life. 

Here's another preview from the book:

#loveyoumore Teaser #1

A very small preview of an upcoming book I'm working on....

#loveyoumore




Leave any thoughts or comments below. :) 

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Wishing you all a blessed and...


I've been super busy lately planning and plotting out the book, #loveyoumore

I wanted to give a bit of background for the inspiration for this book. So, grab a cup of coffee (or tea) and hang out with me....

This will be Tyler & Colonia's Story.

Their story will be very similar to mine in the past twelve years. The inspiration for this book is my relationship with my husband. Ours is a very unique one with many ups and down that we've overcome. Of course, I'll be adding in some extras to fill in the story because there's no way I can remember each detail nor will each detail be book worthy.

I'm thinking this will be a Christian Contemporary/ Christian Romance. I'll narrow it down more once I get to a novel status with it. I have literally just started writing out the story as of today!!! 

There's lots of ups and downs.
Smiles and tears.
But 
Most of all...
It's real!!!

I'll keep you all updated as this story progresses.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.

RaeBeth's Brief Update

Hey friends,

Several readers have been emailing me with questions asking
what I have coming up next, so I decided to give a brief overview of
the books I'm currently working on.

Book #1: Forbidden Destiny


At this time, I'm working on the last part of book #1 of 3. This is from my newest series called, The Hybrid Series. I put an entirely new twist on the paranormal world within the pages of this series. Forbidden is action packed with Witches, Wizards, and Demons. I absolutely love writing this series because it's completely out of my normal genre and taking me on a whole new experience. I'll be announcing the release date as I get closer to finishing book #1. So, hang tight paranormal romance lovers... I'm about to throw another awesome read your way!!!

****


Next on my list is a Christian Contemporary read. 

This one will have you tearing up and make you feel. I suggest having a box of tissues with you when you read this. At this time, it's still considered a novella but I'm working hard toward officially writing another novel. I'll be working with a cover artist soon to create another masterpiece for the cover art. Release dates for the cover reveal will be announced as soon as the artist and I begin making plans for the final look. 

****

I am working on another book, which I have yet to reveal anything about. Therefore, you are the first to hear about the new title and works that I'll be writing. This book will be a Christian romance that's strongly based on my life but in a fictional sense. The title for this will be...,

#loveyoumore

I seriously can't wait to start writing this one but at this time I'm working on plotting out the masterpiece. Once I begin this journey, I'll be posting more about its release and cover reveals.

Happy Release Day to RaeBeth McGee-Buda

**** NOW LIVE ****

 The Gracious Wife by RaeBeth McGee-Buda


Description:

Marriage can be surreal, unpredictable, and enticing all at the same time. We find and fall in love with our best friend, and all of our dreams seem to be coming true. We've heard of the princess being rescued by her prince and they ride off into the sunset to live happily ever after. Unfortunately, this isn't how marriage is in real life, especially when you're trying to be what God has called you to be. Marriage is two self-centered individuals coming together to live as one.

Given all the foes and dips that may come with marriage, this book gives the basic understanding of marriage the way God intended and not as the way fairy tales has made it out to be. It's meant to help wives be more self-sacrificial toward their husband by acting in grace, love, and forgiveness. In this journey with our best friends, we can work toward being more humbling and giving. It takes more than love alone for a great marriage. The basis of a great marriage starts with a strong spiritual foundation, a strong friendship which grew into a strong romance, along with tons of work, sacrifices, and submission by both partners to make it last.

This book provides Rae-Beth's opinion with communication, getting through the tough times, fair fighting, and keeping God the center of the marriage. Dive in and see marriage from one wife's perspective.
