"Whatever you do, fight."

Sophia's family has skeletons, but they aren't in their graves.

At twenty-two, practicing Wiccan Sophia Parsons is scratching out a living waiting tables in her Rocky Mountain hometown, a pariah after a string of unsolved murders with only one thing in common: her.

Sophia can imagine lots of ways to improve her life, but she'd settle for just getting rid of the buzzing noise in her head. When the spell she casts goes wrong, the static turns into voices. Her personal demons get company, and the newcomers are dangerous.

One of them is a man named Charles, who Sophia falls for despite her better judgment. He has connections that might help her unveil the mystery surrounding her ancestor's hanging, but she gets more than she bargains for when she finally decides to trust him. 

Survival in his world, she learns, means not asking questions and staying out of the immortal council's way. It's a line she crossed long ago. If Sophia wants to survive the council and save the people she loves, she must accept who she is, perform dark magic, and fight to the death for her freedom.

The Forever Girl is a full-length Paranormal Fantasy novel that will appeal to lovers of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, witches, vampire fiction, ghost stories, paranormal mystery, and paranormal horror.

Raving Violet

Dead Mothers, Missing Husbands, Disgusting Dates, Perverted “Reverends,” Seductive Gurus, Infamous Ingrates and Cheese Thieves. These are a few of the cast of characters that pepper Valerie Gilbert’s true tales in “Raving Violet.”

Enter the world of a solitary but intrepid New Yorker. Orphaned since (relative) youth, this divorced, smartass metaphysician has sought solace and insight from philosophers, séances, channels and mediums, a path that has, inevitably, led her back to her formidable fortress within.

Join Valerie as she scales the castle walls on her journey for love, sex, sass, a chuckle, and really good chocolate.

Love and Loss! Love and Glory! Love and Nausea! “Raving Violet” has it all.

“Valerie lives and breathes New York City and is also a gifted guide for truly magical healing meditations. She’s Ms. New York, and my virtual sister. Damn, I’m so proud of her! You will treasure this book, re-read it repeatedly, and tell your friends to buy it. Yeah. She’s THAT good!”   Bridgett Walther, author, Conquer the Cosmos, (Penguin/Plume) owner

Valerie Gilbert

Having told funny stories her whole life, Valerie started putting them on stage as solo shows, stand up comedy, in storytelling competitions and gigs, and finally (saving her breath) committed them to the written page A native New Yorker and Harvard graduate, Raving Violet is Valerie Gilbert’s literary debut.  
Actress, storyteller, solo performance artist, tap dancer, rollerblader, environmentalist, animal and peace activist, Valerie has given voice to her passionate political, personal, and metaphysical beliefs in her blog, “Raving Violet,” and here in her book of the same title.  Valerie’s second book, Memories, Dreams and Deflections will be published by Black Opal in late 2013.
