What inspired you to write your book?
I'm Yolanda Allard, I'm one of the authors from the Possessed by Passion boxset. I wrote the book Gargoyles: Stone Curse. Gargoyles is a book that is near and dear to my heart. I have always had an affinity for magic, monsters, and things that go bump in the night. The idea for Gargoyles first came to me like many of my book ideas, from a dream. I have very lucid dreams and nightmares. In this particular dream I was running from a group of monsters, and I had to jump off this bridge that crosses the river near my house to escape them. Terrified I was falling when suddenly something caught me from above before I hit the water. I looked up, and a massive gargoyle had plucked me out of the air and was flying me to safety. I took that scene and wrote it into a full novel. I based the book in my hometown, so the bridge, the mountains, the places, events, and the quirky town is all real and wrapped in a package of stony shenanigans and hijinks with some added passion. I hope readers enjoy not only my gargoyles but all of the creatures of the night they'll meet in this boxset.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Gargoyles: Stone Curse
Available in the Possessed by Passion boxset.
International Bestselling Author Yolanda Allard
“Your whole family is dead; so here’s a bunch of money, a rundown estate on twenty acres, and a chance to live in a po-dunk town in the middle of nowhere.”
Three months after sixteen-year-old Violet Kai moves to the small town of Concrete Washington to receive her inheritance from her late uncle, she starts to get the feeling that not everything is what it seems in the sleepy nook of the pacific northwest. During an impromptu séance with friends that ends up in chaos, Violet learns she was bequeathed much more than she bargained for. Six gargoyles swoop in and save her life, only to inform her that she also inherited them as her wards, an ancestral curse, and a book load of magic. With Violet in town, the gargoyles are awake for the first time in years and Violet quickly learns why they seem to need a magical babysitter. Ready to stretch their wings and go wild, they wreak havoc on her life and even her reality.
Pulled into a new world of magic and stony shenanigans, it’s not all fun and games. Awakened gargoyles also mean awakened demons too, demons who are attracted to Violet and her powers. With monsters of all sorts seemingly running loose, it’s up to Violet and her gaggle of gargoyles to fight and contain them. Demons aren’t the only threat in her midst, when long lost memories start bubbling to the surface, they bring with them betrayal, deep seeded feuds, and strong feelings that Violet isn’t sure any amount of magic can fight.
