Today author Sherry Soule has some exciting news to share with us! All the previously published books in the Spellbound series have been rewritten and republished with more epic romance and suspenseful thrills. The new versions also include exclusive bonus material and brand new scenes. Even additional scenes from bad-boy, Trent Donovan’s point-of-view! To help promote the new editions, she is doing this awesome book promo to share the update with fellow booklovers.
The Spellbound series is a great mix of Pretty Little Lairs meets Buffy, the Vampire Slayer!
After reading numerous reviews and comments on the two originally published Spellbound novels from readers on places like goodreads and book review blogs, I decided to give the series a major overhaul.
The one thing that most of the remarks and statements had in common was the lack of romance. Basically, readers wanted more “Trent” and now I am happy to comply!
Initially, the budding romance between Shiloh and Trent was more of a subplot. One of the first editors that I worked with on the series, Rochelle French advised me to strengthen the romantic elements, but at the time I didn’t think it was necessary. Now I wish I had listened. She was right, because it does have a lot of relevance to the overall storyline, which I realized as I started working on future books for the series. It needed to become more prominent in order for the series ARC to grow.
So after discussing it with my publisher, we decided to divide each book into two parts. Hence, each novel will now become two separate books instead of one. The new editions will contain additional scenes filled with some really hot, sizzling character chemistry between the two stubborn love interests. And there will also be these really cool bonus scenes at the end of some of the books from other character’s point-of-view—including Trent.
Think of these new editions as the “director’s cut” of a movie, which usually includes deleted scenes, and the film has often been enhanced.
So, now I welcome you to the Spellbound series, which is set in the eerie world of Fallen Oaks. North of San Francisco, between Larkspur and Madrone Woodlands in Marin County, this coastal town’s magical charm and sweeping beauty is only a superficial façade. Nothing more than a smokescreen to conceal its murky history.
Those familiar with this area will realize I’ve taken some artistic freedom with this wooded setting. Ah, the power of a storyteller! I’ve chosen the backdrop of Northern California for an obvious reason. It is a beautiful area of lakes, forests, and wildlife.
On a special note, three amazing things really do exist in this locale: the lush forest of Muir Woods, the majesty of Mount Tamalpais, and San Francisco’s infamous roiling fog. I chose to retain these intriguing facets of the region because they contribute to the storyline in a very significant way.
In these serialized novels, you’ll learn the secrets of Fallen Oaks and more about the quirky inhabitants that populate this peculiar neighborhood, where it seems everyone has something to hide. Discover what skulks in the fog and prowls within the dense forest.
Meet the teenage residents that have good looks, lots of teen angst, and a fair share of supernatural intrigue. Read about Trent and Shiloh’s love story, which began with a mixture of lustful teen hormones and beguiling attraction, but at its core, it is a tale about the power of first love and the courage of two hearts that were meant to beat tremendous odds just to be together.
But will fate tear them apart?
I am very excited about this series, and I hope you are, too. I can’t wait to share the next installment with my readers!

Deadly Witchcraft. Ghostly Threats. Doomed Romance.
They say every town has its secrets, but that doesn’t even begin to describe Fallen Oaks. The townsfolk are a superstitious lot and the mystical disappearance of a local teen has everyone murmuring about a centuries old witch’s curse.
When sixteen-year-old Shiloh Trudell takes a summer job at Craven Manor, she discovers a ghost with an agenda. That’s where she meets the new town hottie, Trent Donovan, and immediately becomes enchanted by his charms.
Finally, Shiloh’s met someone who is supercute and totally into her, but Trent is immersed in the cunning deception that surrounds the mysterious Craven Manor. So much so that he may lose sight of what is truly important to him. And she can’t decide whether she wants to shake him or kiss him. Yet neither one of them can deny the immediate, passionate connection growing between them.
But underlying everything is the fear that Trent may be the next victim on a supernatural hit list, and Shiloh is the only person with the power to save him…
With cryptic messages from a pesky wraith, Shiloh will finally begin to understand the mysterious significance of the strange mark branded on her wrist and decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to protect the other teenagers in town.
Unfortunately, for Shiloh, not all ghosts want help crossing over. Some want vengeance.
