Welcome to episode 3 of the Indies’ Reading Block Podcast!
Today we’re featuring an excerpt from No Grits, No Glory by Elaine Calloway. This excerpt is rated PG-13 for minor swear words. Elaine Calloway is the Amazon bestselling author of paranormal and fantasy novels with elements of romance and desire. Her “tales of the living, the dead and the eerie in between” include the Elemental Clans Series, the Southern Ghosts Series, and several short stories. A New Orleans native, Elaine grew up with a love of all things supernatural and enjoys visiting the “Crescent City.” She currently lives in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia.
NO GRITS, NO GLORY follows the story of Brianna who flees down South to Savannah to escape the voices of the dead. Just when she thinks she left all paranormal things behind, she discovers her house is haunted—by a family of Southern ghosts.
These persistent beings not only hide her white shoes after Labor Day, but they wreak havoc on her life enough to convince her to help them bring their killer to justice.
Steven put Savannah in his rearview mirror years ago to follow his passion for music. When his band splits up and he can’t reach his little sister for weeks, he races home—only to learn his whole family died in a mysterious house fire. The house Brianna now lives in.
Together, Brianna and Steven learn who murdered Steven’s family and become caught in a web of intrigue that will threaten their careers, their homes—but especially their lives.
On our next episode, which will be airing on December 15, we’ll be featuring a short story from our very own Morgan Straughan Comnick.
