Wednesday Words: Nicole Zoltack shares four she loves

Today I welcome Nicole Zoltack to talk four words she loves and share from her upcoming release Black Hellebore.

1. Hope

Hope is such a strong word. Sometimes, all you need is a little hope to get you through the tough times. Without hope, nothing seems surmountable.

2. Persevere

Persevere is an author’s best friend. I always strive to persevere with every aspect of my life – as a writer, an editor, a wife and mother.

3. Chivalry

The word chivalry reminds me of knights and honor and putting others ahead of yourself. The world needs more chivalry in it. No wonder I wrote an entire trilogy about knights and romance! (The Kingdom of Arnhem trilogy: Woman of Honor, Knight of Glory, and Champion of Valor)

4. Sardonic

A complete departure from the other words on the list. Sardonic is such a fun word to say. Although I do find it irritating when people are acting sardonic. Unless it’s for comedic effect. Then it can be almost as cool as the word sardonic itself.

Coming Soon:

Once a year for the past decade, Nicholas Adams returns to Falledge and leaves a black hellebore on his girlfriend’s grave. While departing Falledge, he chases after a man sneaking into the laboratory and dies for his trouble. A witch brings him back to life, but Nicholas soon realizes he’s not the same man. Turns out, magic combined with a black hellebore in his pocket changed him into a kind of a super man.

His girlfriend’s twin, Julianna Paige, is Falledge’s deputy, struggling to solve several murders. Nicholas, and his alter ego the Black Hellebore, helps her, even as she helps him move on and even start to love again.

Unfortunately, Nicholas wasn’t the only one changed in the laboratory explosion, and now there’s a supervillain bent on destroying Falledge, and killing the Black Hellebore. But falling in love might prove more dangerous than any supervillain.

Author Bio:

Nicole Zoltack loves to write fantasy/paranormal, romances, horror, historical, for adults and young adults, novels, short stories, and flash pieces. She doesn’t want to get boxed in by genre — she might be claustrophobic! She’s also an editor for MuseItUp Publishing and works as a freelance editor.

When she isn’t writing about girls wanting to be knights, talking unicorns, and zombies, she spends time with her loving family. She loves to ride horses (pretending they’re unicorns, of course!) and going to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, dressed in period garb. Her favorite current TV show is The Walking Dead.
