Lingering Touch Backstory —The Limo

I have a tradition with The Summer Park Psychics. Whenever there’s a new release, I like to write a little backstory piece about that title. For Lingering Touch, I decided on a moment that takes place right before the action of that book.

We learn in Wandering Soul that Garrett was concerned enough about Elsa’s safety to hire a private investigator, Finn Connelly, to look into her new roommate, Dante Lucerne. Neither Finn nor Garrett know that Elsa is psychic and actually brought Dante forward through time to save his life.

Finn is Garrett’s best friend, and as we see very quickly in Lingering Touch, Finn is also Jazz’s ex. He and Jazz did not part on amicable terms.

While running down clues about Dante, Finn stumbles across more than he expected—a deeper threat to Elsa from a different suspect. The first vision that gives Finn a clue about the danger takes place in the limo Elsa hired to take her and Dante home the night she brought Dante forward through time.

And then there were the edits with my editor, the amazing Holly Atkinson, which were the most challenging to date. The end result is a powerful book that I am so proud of. The characters are strong, the plot filled with action. It has love, uncertainty, danger, and yes, even more alligators 🙂 Continue reading “Multiple Perspectives”

Moving Forward, Looking Back

This week marks an important milestone in my writing career. Tomorrow, July 7, it will have been one year since my first book, Wandering Soul, was published 🙂

Wandering Soul by Cassandra Chandler

I adore this book, and have been wanting to go back and read it again—to visit the characters and world of The Summer Park Psychics. The urge is strong, especially with the release of Lingering Touch less than a month away! There’s so much to do going forward, but what I really need to do right now is take a moment (or a blog post) to reflect Continue reading “Moving Forward, Looking Back”
