Guest Blogger: Beyond the Mist by Casi McLean

It’s wonderful to be a guest on your blog, Marie. Thanks so much for inviting me.

Tell us a little about yourself.

My past has so many twists and turns it would take a book to explain––in fact, I wrote that book and the story catapulted my writing career. Discovering my rock, the dad who raised me wasn’t my biological father spiraled my life into a tempest of secrets and lies that profoundly changed my life. Finding four sisters and a brother I never knew existed is just the tip of the tsunami. If your readers are interested, my memoir is available on Amazon. Here is a world-wide Amazon link to Wingless Butterfly~Healing The Broken Child Within:

The book is written like the whispers of a friend and reads more like a novel than a memoir, so if memoirs aren’t your cup of tea, this book may surprise you.

What do like the most and the least about writing?

I love the writing experience. It’s like opening a door into another world every time I open my WIP on my computer. Reality fades into the distance and my characters take me on a journey. I have an idea where the roads lead, but my hero and heroine write my stories.
The worst part of writing for me is definitely marketing. It’s a learning curve I never expected and had no interest in discovering. 

Give us a peek into your latest published work? 

The lake is filled with mystery, strange occurrences and, disappearances.


Piper Taylor concedes she’ll never fall in love, until a treacherous storm spirals her into the arms of the handsome Nick Cramer. Unrelenting remorse over a past relationship haunts Nick, but he can’t deny the mysterious connection and hot desire Piper evokes.

The allure of a secret portal hidden beneath Atlanta’s Lake Lanier tempts him into seizing the opportunity to change his mistakes. But his time slip triggers consequences beyond his wildest dreams.

Can Piper avoid the international espionage and terrorism of 2001 New York, find Nick, and bring him home before he alters the fabric of time, or will the lovers drift forever Beyond The Mist?

Is there anything you want to tell readers?

Yes. Book one in my Lake Lanier Mysteries is on sale this week for only $0.99. Beneath The Lake is the prequel to Beyond The Mist. It’s not necessary to read Book 1 first, but Beneath The Lake is where the series began and a wonderful companion with familiar characters.

Thanks again for hosting me, Marie.

Wow, interesting life, Casi! And I think a lot of authors are not prepared for the marketing side of things. Luckily, we all help each other out. Good luck with your book!
