Release Day Blitz and Guest Post: Belakane by Angela Carling



Creating an enchantment to protect her friends is risky but so is having faith in mortals!




IT’S HERE! Finally the origin of The Secret Keeper Curse is told! BELAKANE, The Origin of the Curse is a novella.The book may be a little shorter, but the story  is big on paranormal drama!

Here's the blurb you'll find on the back of the book:

Belakane lives during the terrifying age of the Salem Witch trials. And, unlike the women around her, she actually is a witch. When Belakane’s magic gets her best friend Martha accused of witchcraft, the powerful sorceress creates a risky enchantment to protect what’s left of the small group of friends that hide her secret.


Will Belakane’s power save her friends or will it be the demise of all she holds dear?


If you’ve already read The Secret Keeper you know that an ancient spell has the power to erase a mistake, making it like it never happened. In Book 1, that’s how Winter Merrill erases a choice that she regrets. But...she can’t imagine how her bargain with The Secret Keeper will change her life, especially when under the rules of the curse, she cannot tell her next secret AND IT’S A DOOZY THAT MUST BE TOLD TO SAVE THOSE SHE LOVES!

Now for a fun little quiz: Which of these things was most likely to get you accused of being a witch in 1692?




a.      You are a woman
b.      You are close to an animal
c.      You are middle aged
d.      You talk to yourself
e.      Milk or buttermilk spoiled while in your cooler
f.       You have moles or scars
g.      Or you were in a low social position





Okay...so it was trick question. All of these things could get you accused of being a witch in Salem 1692. Would you have been in trouble? I would!!









In Books 1 and 2 of the series we learn about how the secret keeper curse affects the characters that live in our day, but in Belakane we get to go back in time to 1692 in Salem Massachusetts, a very hostile time and place for a real witch like Belakane.

  16. It was terrible just how many women were killed in horrific ways after being accused of being a witch... Between 14th-17th century around about 60,000 women died in Europe alone - and that is contested by a number of historians as being far too low. There were also women who were executed before the 1300s and after 1700, though not as many.

    1. I agree, there is a series on Netflix that is so fascinating and so sad at the same time about everything that occurred in Europe.
