KEEPING THE TARNISHED by Bradon Nave
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Release Date: Nov. 3, 2015
– SYNOPSIS –
Johnny Tregalis leaves home the minute he turns eighteen, but he’s the only one who knows why…
Arriving in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Johnny has nothing—not even a plan. Local veterinarian Jackson Everett notices the boy, who reminds him of his own teenage son, and offers him a bed for the night.
Meeting Jackson’s wife Graye, his son Jared, and four-year-old daughter Bryce, Johnny sees a family he could never imagine. He’d been raised by his abusive father after his mother disappeared with his younger brother, and he’s sure he’ll be packed off to a shelter in the morning. He can’t believe it when he’s invited to stay indefinitely.
Johnny refuses to discuss his traumatic past as he attempts to fit in…
The Everetts try to help the profoundly troubled teen, but he seems to be at the mercy of his own mind. He’s held captive by flashbacks, excruciating night terrors, and a mounting inability to distinguish delusion from reality. How can he possibly recover, go to school, have friends…have a life?
Physical scars only hint at deeper psychological devastation…
As the shocking truth comes to light, Johnny struggles to overcome years of abuse, poverty, and despicable horrors to become part of a real family, but is he strong enough to defeat his demons? The Everetts realize Johnny’s journey is now their own, but they face a daunting task.
How much sacrifice is too much when all you can hope for is keeping the tarnished?

The End.

I have officially finished penning Bleeding Willows and I am pleased with how it turned out. Along the way, I needed to build my characters – so I searched for key elements I saw them having and here is what I came up with after scouring the internet for images that inspired me:

Casper – the fast, intuitive young fighter for the clan…and Cassidy’s close friend

Tyler: Her human sparring partner and new crush. But his betrayal leaves her second guessing their relationship.

Jace: Her boyfriend of 4 years who has a bit of an evil side to him.

Killian: The leader of the clan of demon hunters, bonded to Cassidy, and forever watching out for her.

Lena: Killian’s sister who is the clan medic

And last but not least…our main character…Cassidy:

Setting for Bleeding Willows

Growing up on the south side of Chicago, I remember hearing tales of devil worshippers heading to Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery to pay their respects to Satan.  It creeped me out, yet I was also very curious and wanted to investigate.  This autumn I’ve decided I will visit the cemetery and will update when I do.

I did NOT take these photos. They come from this website: https://brothertom.wordpress.com/category/graves/

But this abandoned and haunted cemetery has inspired the setting for Between the Bleeding Willows, my current work-in-progress novel.  Cassidy, the main character, lives in Homer Glen, IL, as I did growing up. She will find her life forever changed when she wanders into the cemetery. Welcome to Bachelor’s Grove!
