Rick (the leprichaun) Talks about Book 3 in Sabrina Strong Series

Hi, everyone. I'm Rick. Better known as the leprechaun in the Sabrina Strong Series. If you've been keeping up, I'm introduced in the second book. But I'm here today to talk about the third book, coming out real soon. So, pay attention, 'coz I'm not going to repeat this for any losers out there. Got it? Good.
So—eh—let's see. In the second book we did a lot of stuff like released Mr. Tremayne from imprisonment, then we went to Dark World, kicked some demon butt there, and Tremayne lost favor with those devils there. But Sabrina got through that pretty unscathed, and got some experience in demon-ass kicking. She also solved a murder mystery—and if you read that book, you had to think she'd never get out of that old house alive. Right?
Also (spoiler alert!) Dante died at the end, which I guess a lot of you ladies sort of got upset about. Well, I promised not to give away too much, but you've gotta read this third one, because--(whispering) things really look up at the end of it where he's concerned. (Winks)
But this time she's trying to find her cousin, Lindee, who has gone missing. You think about it, a person could go missing for a lot of reasons—not just that maybe some foul play is involved. But admittedly this is foul play when you think about it.
Just so you know, Lindee had background and issues up the wazoo. Especially with her parents. And she was what we mildly call a bad girl. I say mildly because we've all had our bad times. Right? So some people just think she ran away. Sabrina, being a clairvoyant, knows better.
Sabrina finds out where Lindee was last seen. They got police and dogs scouring the place, but guess what? Lindee is no longer on terra firma. Nope. And when Sabrina slips through the portal that takes her to a world called Beyond the Black Veil, you can bet something really interesting is going to happen. 'Coz you see, that world is run by vampires, and I'm told they're sort of stuck in the mid-Victorian age.
Oh, and Sabrina actually meets Dracula himself—the real Vlad The Impaler, who is now a vampire. I swear to God! I nearly fell off my stool at Tom's Tavern when she told us.
And as if that ain't the worse part about it, she has to face these weird things called Dreadfuls who make humans sick and stick around until they die. But she figures out what she has to do to get rid of them permanently.
Oh, jeez. Did I say too much?
Well, the mystery as to where Lindee is is plenty to deal with, but you see the vampires on this world have donors for their needs. But one of these ladies whose blood is really, really popular was murdered, and has Sabrina a little distracted too. Along with all the good looking dudes in this as well. I mean, Sabrina is a good looking lady, and besides being a touch clairvoyant, she's also the sibyl, who has powers of her own. She's sort of discovering them in this book, and figuring out how to work her mojo. Dig?
Well, I think I've said enough here. If I say any more I'll say too much. I just wanted to get the word out. So, if you're in Batavia Illinois, look me up at Tom's Tavern. I'm buying. (laughs) See ya! (disappears)


  1. I love that Sabrina will be figuring out how to work her mojo in this one! I can hardly wait.

  2. Ah, yes. The lady needs to get this down! Thanks for stopping in, Heather!

  3. It sounds like Sabrina will have her hands full.

  4. I can't wait to read this one. Oh nad Lorelei. Your name and books popped up at the Salon the other day. Soemone else is reading your stuff in Florida besides me.

    You're becoming a name, dear.

    Hugs and chocolate,


  5. ~Mari, she usually does. Thanks for stopping in!

    ~Shelly, thanks for letting me know about my books (really?), and I'm sure yours will be read in the salon soon, too.

    Chocolate hugs, dear!

  6. Oooh, sounds like fun! Can't wait to read :)

  7. Cool! Glad I stumbled upon this blog. GO VAMPS!!!!!


  8. Dreadfuls sound so intriguing! Rick is so mischievous, isn't he? :)

  9. Alright, Ibdiamond. Happy you did too!

    Lydia, you're right. Rick is very mischievous!

  10. Dreadfuls? What a great name for them, and I can think of a few people who might (secretly) be one! Love the leprechaun's voice, but I don't trust him about buying any drinks. :)

  11. Linda--haha! I believe I know what you mean about the Dreadful thing.

    And I think you caught the nuance of Rick's deceptions. But he's a good guy, really.

  12. I like this! Rick has a very distinctive voice!

  13. Thanks, William. He does have a distinctive voice. It was difficult to get it to come through in just a short space, but I think I managed. Thanks for noticing!
