The Ghost in the Water is Live

The Ghost in the Water, Samuel Dexter, Book 2 is Live. This book was a long time coming. Over a year,  in fact. The original premise came to me in a dream, and that's how Cindy was brought to life. Or death, since she's a little ghost. I knew the book would be MM, but I didn't know it would be about an interracial couple. And I didn't know I would fall so hard for these two guys. Dex and Orlando are so very real to me. Their lives, their struggles, everything about them, I feel deeply. When it came time to write book 2, they weren't ready because I wasn't ready. I was sitting down to write this sappy, easy-going story, and that's not where they were. Of course, they got through most of their struggles, but it didn't start off that way. When I was ready to listen, they were ready to talk.
Book 2 picks up where book 1 left off, and the mysteries withiin their stories were intriguing to me. I had the idea for one of the characters for months, but it took a bit of research before i was ready to write about a person with Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly known as multiple personalities). I didn't want the whole focus of the book to be on that character, but I wanted to understand it enough to make her seem real. I hope I did Lindy justice.
If you like MM mysteries, I hope you'll take a chance on these books.

Orlando has always relied on his team, but as the killer continues to evade capture, Orlando turns to the one person who has connections beyond his reach - his lover, Sam.
Navigating the rough waters of their reunion, Sam and Orlando learn there is give and take in a relationship. The love they felt as teens is gone, replaced with a more mature love, and it will take compromise by both men to make it work.
With the help of his little ghost, Cindy, Sam embraces his new gifts as together they help solve another crime.
The Ghost in the Water is book 2 in the Samuel Dexter Series. These books are written to be read in order.

Looking Back and Forward

Happy New Years Eve. 2017 was a wonderful year as far as my writing life goes. I have a stellar following, and for that I am grateful. Without my readers, I wouldn't be able to do what I love every day. As a writer, I live in my stories. My characters are family. Once a book has reached "the end" that doesn't mean the story, the world, the people, are forgotten. They live inside my head and in my heart. I'm sure you've read books that stay with you, and you feel like the characters are your family or friends. That's how it is for a writer.

This year, I wrote 5 books and 1 Novella. The genres were all over the place, and that's because I have so many stories to tell.  Here they are in order of release - 
  • Finding Me - Book 3 in The Music Within Series (MM)
  • Tap Dancing with the Devil - Standalone MF Suspense
  • Julian - Book 9 in The Stone Society
  • Oracle - Book 1 in The Guardians of Truth - YA Fantasy
  • Urijah - Book 10 in the Stone Society (MM)
  • Dane - Stone Society Novella

Here are the stories I have slated for 2018 - 
  • Tamian - Book 11 in the Stone Society
  • The Ghost in the Water - A Samuel Dexter Story (MM)
  • Finding Home - The Music Within Book 4 (MM)
  • Seeker - The Guardians of Truth Book 2 - YA Fantasy
  • Tap Dancing with an Angel - MF Suspense
  • Deacon - Book 12 in The Stone Society
The stories are tentative and won't be released in the order shown above. I fully intended on getting to Ghost and Finding Home in 2017, but the characters were being quiet. They are whispering to me now, but until they are shoving each other out of the way to say something, I will continue writing the voices that are speaking to me. Dane wasn't supposed to happen until after Deacon, but he was pushing and shoving, so he got his story told this year.

I apologize to everyone who is waiting on a certain story to be told, but I will not push a book out just because it should be next. Believe me, nobody puts more pressure on me to get a certain book out than I do. I have sat down and tried to force the words, but all that does is make for a crappy story and take away from the stories that are supposed to be told first. I hope you can understand.
I attended several book signings and met some of you in person for the first time, and I look forward to meeting more of you next year. I have 4 book signings slated for 2018 - 
  • Kinky in Kansas City - March 10th
  • Rocket City Author Event (Huntsville AL) July 21st
  • Naughty Nashville - October 6th
  • Rebels & Readers (Huntington WV) - November 3rd 
Here's to a wonderful 2017 and an even better 2018. I wish you all nothing but the best in the coming year.

A Halloween Treat for you MM lovers

What's better than a trick for Halloween? How about a treat? From now until the end of the month, The Ghost in the Mirror is on sale for 99 cents.

If you like MM books as well as a little suspenseful paranormal, now's the perfect time to try Ghost...

Blurb:
What do you do when you have no memories of your life except the one moment that took everything away?
My name is Dex and I'm a Marine. Somewhere in the horrors of the sand overseas, an explosion took out not only most of my unit but also my memories of everything that happened before that day. When my memories don’t return, the explosion also ends my career in the military. That one moment costs me everything.
Starting from scratch sucks. I don’t even know what foods I like or what types of music I listen to. Am I a boxer or briefs man? Do I like women or men? I also have to figure out what I’m going to do with my life from this point on.
While adjusting to my new life, I start seeing things -- things that no one else can see. I think that maybe my head injury caused more than amnesia. When one of my "visions" won't leave me alone, I have no choice but to believe in ghosts.
Along with the ghosts during the day, at night I dream vividly of two men. But are these two men merely dreams, or are they memories? When one man steps through the door of my hospital room, I have the answer. This man literally tries to lead me down memory lane, culminating in a searing kiss. Too bad my brain isn't cooperating, because this man is breathtaking.
With the help of my sassy grandmother, I begin to rebuild my life.
I am Samuel Dexter, and these are my stories.

Banyan spends years silently loving his best friend while not so silently trying to convince him they are mates. When they part ways, Banyan carries on, going through the motions of living as a lone male. Two hundred years later, Banyan has found a life for himself in New Orleans. When he makes a grave mistake, he loses his mate for good.

War is finally upon the Stone Society. Fifty of the Clan travel to Greece for battle, but not all return home.

Will Uri let go of his anger and forgive his old friend? Or will he once again turn his back on a future with his mate?

Oracle Release


Oracle 

The Guardians of Truth is now LIVE

"Andi Copeland masterfully takes you on a journey of discovery in this coming of age - young adult novel. 
Not to be missed."




Rhennan Ward is no one
special. Or so she thought. When her grandmother gives her a Tree of Life
pendant for her eighteenth birthday, she finds out how very different she
really is. 



Rhennan is next in line to be Oracle, the one chosen by the Creator to guard
the secret of Heaven – The Tree of Life. Rhen's grandmother, the current
Oracle, fails to pass along the knowledge of Rhen’s destiny, and when strange
things start happening, Rhen believes she is going crazy. Coming into her
powers before her time, Rhen sees things she shouldn’t. Her parents are keeping
secrets from her, and that only adds to the stress she feels about her sanity.

Maddox Bell is the
new guy at school. When the tall, good-looking bad-boy shows up in his
leather jacket and moto boots, all it takes is one look into his sapphire
eyes, and he makes Rhen forget about her ex-boyfriend - the one who broke
her heart. He also makes her forget to study, and with only three months left
in the school year, Rhen is torn between keeping her perfect grade point
average and spending time with the man who has his own secrets. As Maddox
and Rhen become closer, things get stranger, threatening to rip them
apart.


When Rhen makes one desperately wrong decision, her life and that of her
family, is irrevocably changed forever.  “If this was Hell, the Christians on Earth were
going to be pissed.”

Talon Silver is
the Guardian who has been watching over Rhen her entire life. He is also the
one who rescues her from the hands of a demon. He is supposed to be one of the
good guys, having Angel blood. Why, then, is Rhen hesitant to trust him?

Angels and
demons. Good versus evil. Things aren’t always black and white, and Rhen has to
figure out who she can trust.

In this twist
on good vs evil, follow Rhennan and Nikira Ward as they learn who
they really are and what that means for their future.

SUPPORT ANDI'S THUNDERCLAP




"I read the ARC of Oracle. OMG I never, ever, ever would buy a book like this. But I already preordered this one. This book is freaking AMAZING!!! "  - Early reviewer



Chapter One


Have you ever had a possum walk across your
grave? You know that feeling that starts at your nape and snakes its way down
your spine while the hair on your arms stands on end? Your whole body shivers
while you look around for the boogeyman, but you can’t see anything. I was
sitting in first period when it happened to me.

Again.

It didn’t take long to figure out the cause.
Our classroom door opened, and in walked the most beautiful man I had ever
seen. And when I say man, I mean this guy had to be a substitute teacher or
someone’s older brother, because there was no way he was young enough to be a
student. Long black hair brushed his shoulders which were encased in a
well-worn leather jacket. Faded jeans led to a pair of black moto boots. His
most striking feature, from the quick perusal I had given him, was his eyes.
They were a deep sapphire. I know this because I sat close to the front of the
room.

And he was staring straight at me.

That might not have been so odd if I were
Brittany or Kinsley, the prettiest girls in our class. But I wasn’t. I was
plain Rhennan Ward. For whatever reason, none of the other kids were paying any
attention to him. I turned my head toward my best friend. Surely Jenna would be
staring at him too. She wasn’t. What the heck was going on? Was I the only one
who could see how gorgeous this man was? When I turned back around, Mr. Blue
Eyes was headed toward me. I lowered my chin to my chest and averted my gaze
until he stopped and took the only vacant seat in the classroom, which happened
to be right next to mine. Great.

“Class, I would like for you to welcome Maddox
Bell. He comes to us from…” Mrs. Bain looked back down at the piece of paper
she was holding and frowned. “Anyway, say hello to Maddox.”

Maddox. Of course he would have a cool name. Not Bill or Ted, but I
had no doubt this guy had plenty of excellent adventures. His name matched his
swagger, and I still didn’t believe he wasn’t older than the rest of us. Half
the class muttered hello while the other half continued to ignore the new guy
the way they usually did.

Maddox Bell wasn’t just another guy. Something
about him was different. My skin was still itching from the way he had looked
right at me. Maybe he was an undercover cop. It’s not like our school was
exempt from kids selling drugs or teens running away. Northfield was your
average public high school. But that wouldn’t explain why he had singled me
out. I was pretty boring for the most part. No boyfriend. Highest grade point
average out of over three hundred seniors. My social life consisted of going
for coffee drinks after school with my best friend and hanging out with my
little sister. See? Boring.

I wanted so badly to turn and stare at him to
make sure I hadn’t been wrong about his looks or his age. Maybe he was so
good-looking the others couldn’t look his way, like he was an
Angel or something. Now you’re being ridiculous. My thoughts
had been off-kilter lately, so thinking Maddox Bell was an Angel wasn’t out of
the norm.

“Rhennan, if you would share your book with
Mr. Bell until we can find him one, I would appreciate it,” Mrs. Bain
announced. Maddox didn’t hesitate to scoot his desk closer to mine, sliding his
arm along the back of my chair and leaning toward me. How did he know I was
Rhennan? I turned my head to ask him that, but the words died in my throat.
Either I was going crazy, or the pupils of his eyes were slitted like a
snake’s. He blinked, and they were back to the same deep blue that had pierced
me moments before. Yep. Going crazy.

I swallowed hard as I pushed my chemistry book
over so it was half on my desk and half on his. After that, I kept my eyes down
and off Maddox Bell. More than once his breath ghosted across my neck and cheek
as he leaned closer, but I locked down the urge to face him. His scent alone –
a mixture of leather and smoke – was doing crazy things to my brain.  None
of the other boys in our school smelled this good, not that I went around
sniffing them. Then again, none of the other boys looked this good, and they
sure didn’t make me see things that weren’t there.

For the last two weeks, ever since my
eighteenth birthday, my life had gone from normal to anything but. Before the
tenth, or BTT as I liked to call it, I was just a regular girl
who made good grades and spent time with her little sister and her best friend.
I didn’t dream at night, or if I did, I didn’t remember them. Now, not only was
I having vivid dreams – most of which were nightmares – but I was remembering
every little detail in Technicolor. During the day, I had started having
flashes of someone or something in my peripheral vision, but
when I turned to look, there was nothing there. I had the feeling of being
followed. Watched.

I had read articles in various magazines about
trusting your instincts. How your gut feeling was the universe’s way of cluing
you in on what was happening around you. My instincts had been on high alert
ever since my birthday. I wish my instincts would chill out, because they had
me on edge, and I couldn’t afford that. Not with only three months left until I
graduated.

It was a good thing I was a straight-A
student, because I had no idea what Mrs. Bain said for the next forty-five
minutes. Dizziness danced around me, and it took every ounce of willpower I had
not to run from the room. When the bell rang, I grabbed my book and slammed it
shut a little harder than necessary; but in my defense, my brain wasn’t
functioning properly, and I blamed that on Maddox. Instead of going to my
locker, I waited outside the classroom for Jenna, and as soon as she cleared
the door, I grabbed her sleeve and pulled her farther down the hall. “Did you
see him?” I gushed.

“That Maddox kid? Yeah, why?” she asked
nonchalantly, like he wasn’t some kind of god in black leather.

I looked around to make sure nobody was
listening, and said, “You’re kidding, right? There’s no way he’s eighteen.”
