 Cecy_Close-up_CroppedIMG_2345.jpgCecy (pronounced Sessy) Robson is an author with Penguin’s SIGNET ECLIPSE. She attributes her passion for story-telling back to the rough New Jersey neighborhood she was raised in. As a child, she was rarely allowed to leave the safety of her house and passed her time fantasizing about flying, fairies, and things that go bump in the night. Her dad unwittingly encouraged Cecy’s creativity by kissing her goodnight wearing vampire fangs. Gifted and cursed with an overactive imagination, she began writing her Urban Fantasy Romance Series, Weird Girls, in May 2009. THE WEIRD GIRLS: A Novella, debuts December 4, 2012 followed by SEALED WITH A CURSE, December 31, 2012, and A CURSE EMBRACED, July 2, 2013.

The Weird Girls: A Novella (Weird Girls, #0.5)Sealed with a Curse (Weird Girls, #1)

Description:

THE WEIRD GIRLS: A NOVELLA

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they’re products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, a little weird…

The Wird sisters are different from every race on earth—human and supernatural. When human society is no longer an option for them, they move in among the resident vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region. Could this be the true home they’ve longed for? Um, not quite. After the sisters accidentally strip a witch of her powers in a bar brawl, they soon realize the mistake will cost them. Because to take on a witch means to take on her coven. And losing the battle isn’t an option.

Includes a preview of the first full-length novel in the Weird Girls series, Sealed with a Curse—as well as introductions to the Weird World, and a letter from the author.

 

SEALED WITH A CURSE

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they’re products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, weird…

The Wird sisters are content to avoid the local vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region—until one of them blows up a vampire in self-defense. Everyone knows vampires aren’t aggressive, and killing one is punishable by death. But soon more bloodlust-fueled attacks occur, and the community wonders: are the vampires of Tahoe cursed with a plague?

Celia reluctantly agrees to help Misha, the handsome leader of an infected vampire family. But Aric, the head of the werewolf pack determined to destroy Misha’s family to keep the region safe, warns Celia to stay out of the fight. Caught between two hot alphas, Celia must find a way to please everyone, save everyone, and oh yeah, not lose her heart to the wrong guy—or die a miserable death. Because now that the evil behind the plague knows who Celia is, it’s coming for her and her sisters. This Wird girl has never had it so tough.

      That’s a better talent than I have. I write fairly quickly but my reading is more like: “The . . . werewolf . . . said . . . grrr . . . “

  1. Lily B

    That was epic, made me laugh so hard. I especially loved 4

    Zombies, vampires, and werewolves are your only dating options. <3

    I wouldn't say that I have any weird talent or abilities lol unfortunately, but my sister can burp on command… just a random though that popped in.

    • Cecy

      My son can burp the alphabet and while strangely impressive, I wish he’d just clean his room on command . . .

  2. DeAnna Schultz

    Well, I wouldn’t call it weird but my intuition never lets me down even when at times I wish it would.

    This post is LOL awesome!
    Thank you for the chance to win!

    I can mentally communicate thoughts to me husband no matter where he is in the world. He’s a very good receptor – I am not ;). Thank you.

    Oh, how funny! Definitely want to read this book now.

    Hmmm…I’m weird but unfortunately none of it is talents or abilities.

  5. Samantha D

    A ‘weird’ useless ability I have is that I can hear when any electrionic device is on. Like when the TV is on but the screen is black and looks like its turned off. I can tell if its open or turned off. My folks found this to be amazing…….idk y the only it does is save some digits off the electric bill, but there you go.

  6. Linda

    I´ve got a spooky talent for recognizing voices, doesn´t really help in my day to day life, though =)

    Happy Holiday!
