Baba Lenka is now out!
I have exciting news today. Baba Lenka is now out on Kindle and in paperback. The audio is currently being worked on, and will be available very soon. This particular book came as an idea late last year, when I started to think about Dennis Wheatley's conviction that the occult had a large influence on the world wars. I ordered books on the Bavarian Illuminati and read up on slavic witchcraft and the European Empires. Soon I was tracing back to the Sumerians and the Gnostic Gospels, and as the information took form, Baba Lenka was written. I have to say this has been, at times, very difficult to write. And there are some uncanny parallels with what is unravelling today. Set in the 1970s, this is the story of Eva Hart. Here it is. I hope you enjoy the story!
' 1970, and Baba Lenka begins in an icy Bavarian village with a highly unorthodox funeral. The deceased is Baba Lenka, great-grandmother to Eva Hart. But a terrible thing happens at the funeral, and from that moment on everything changes for seven year old Eva. The family fly back to Yorkshire but it seems the cold Alpine winds have followed them home...and the ghost of Baba Lenka has followed Eva. This is a story of demonic sorcery and occult practices during the World Wars, the horrors of which are drip-fed into young Eva's mind to devastating effect. Once again, this is absolutely not for the faint of heart. Nightmares pretty much guaranteed... '
You might wonder about the poppet on the cover? This is authentic and was created by Raven Wood. It also features heavily in the book. Thank you so much, Raven, for allowing me to use your creation both for illustration and as a 'walk-on' part! I am indebted to you. Raven's home-made produce can be found on Etsy at Deep Within the Hollow: .https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DeepWithintheHollow
Thank you also to Rumer Haven, for the proofreading (and funny 'balloon' comments in the margins - 'Yikes!' 'Oh NO!' lol... ), and to Gina Dickerson for the incredible artwork and design. Please, neither of you desert me...
Finally, a launch party is planned on facebook with good friend, Shani Struthers - she of the highly popular Psychic Surveys and This Haunted World Series! This is planned for the 3rd of July along with guests, Raven and Rumer. And there will be lots and lots of prizes. However, I am currently locked out of facebook and instagram. On the naughty step for the foreseeable. I had wanted only to remove some personal information. If anyone would like to contact me, I can be reached via my website, after which we will have each other's emails. This is http://www.sarahenglandauthor.co.uk
Well, I hope you enjoy the read, and thank you in advance for any nice reviews that you are kind enough to write. It would be hugely appreciated. Crazy world right now - take care everyone. xx
