My paranormal novella, The Pendant is being offered as the Valentine's Contest Most Deadly on the Books We Love site. There will be ten winners of the story, a pendant as shown on the cover, and one lucky entrant will also receive some Godiva chocolates. If you don't win, the novella will be offered through the KDP program for only 99 cents. Hope you enjoy.
Here's the blurb for this one-of-a-kind story...no hero or heroine..just an inanimate object that gets passed down through the years:
Can you consider a necklace a gift if it makes you angry enough to kill? A simple trinket left in a confessional begins a pain of destruction throughout the years.
The silver pendant, left behind by a woman who killed her boyfriend, is supposedly cursed; at least that’s what she claimed before she raced out of the church. Anyone who dares fasten the locket around her neck suffers severe and uncontrollable anger. Woe be it to anyone who gets in the path of the wearer. Is the piece cursed, or are the deaths totally unrelated? Detective Clarence O’Day is unwilling to make the connection—until forty years after the first case.
