Promotional Event: Oxford Whispers by Marion Croslydon

If you enjoy your paranormal romance, with just a dash of the old South, a little Voodoo-stamped heritage, and a hauntingly troubled aristocrat then you're sure to fall in love with, Oxford Whispers. It has so much depth, incredible appeal, and a powerful rich story with ample amounts of heritage, love, and hauntingly appealing history. I promise, you will not be bored one ounce with this book. Plus, it falls into the New Adult/Mature YA (17+) category. It's a new one for me, but so far I've pretty much loved every book that I've read from that new genre.

Also, Marion Croslydon was nice enough to share a guest post and an awesome giveaway with us today!

"Fall in love for the first time...Again."

Madison LeBon is dead set against the dead.

Her fresh start at Oxford University is a brand new beginning. She finally has a chance to turn the page on her psychic powers and cumbersome voodoo heritage. Snakes, dolls, ghosts, and spirits: Farewell…

Not quite.

When the tragic lovers in a painting—the subject of her first history class—begin to haunt her, she must accept her gift before life imitates art. The lovers warn her against their own nemesis, a Puritan from the English Civil War. Unfortunately, said nemesis is now going all homicidal on Madison.

College becomes more complicated when she falls hard for Rupert Vance, a troubled aristocrat and descendant of one of the characters in the painting. With the spirit of a murderer after her, Madison realizes that her own first love may also be doomed…

Oxford – I know, I know, sounds obvious since it’s in the title.  But Oxford is more than just a setting. It’s a character. Its cobbled streets, ancient colleges, cozy pubs provide the crush and color of a busy world surrounding the little dramas that Madison and Rupert are experiencing.

Reincarnation – This is something I believe in and the core of the plot. The characters in a real-life painting, The Wounded Cavalier, are given a second chance at happiness… or revenge.

Firsts – This is why I write New Adult. Oxford Whispers is about falling in love for the first time, but also leaving home for the first time and being on one’s own…

Honesty – Madison and Rupert go through a lot of troubles because they’re not honest with each other… and with themselves. The story shows how they’re learning to be true to themselves or to each other.

Grief – How to recover from loss, but also how it’s often mixed with guilt.

Romance – Again, sorry if it sounds obvious since it’s the genre I’m writing. As a writer, I’m always trying to develop a relationship from a romantic angle. Sex is important (so are sex scenes and they’re not easy to write!), but in this 50-Shades era, let’s not forget about the ‘va-va-voom’…



In addition to being an author, I work as an entrepreneur, wife and mother-of-one but spend a good deal of time with books, DVDs and listening to my mp3 player; all for the sake of inspiration, of course.

My debut series, The Oxford Trilogy, has been a blast to write because I can indulge in my favorite types of music: Country and English rock.

My main goal as a writer is to make readers dream bigger and cause their hearts to beat a little faster.

Since my writing is all about sharing dreams and stories, I love connecting with fellow readers and authors.
