Before I tell you more about The Calling, Amber Foxx and the giveaway, here’s a question I asked Amber about her book.

Mae Martin-Ridley in your book The Calling has the gift of ‘the sight’. What do you think of this psychic power, is it a gift or a curse?

For Mae, it’s both. The first few things she does with the gift seem undeniably helpful—finding a lost person, a lost pet—but she runs into problems because she can know things about others that they’d rather keep from her. Some of the things she accidentally discovers disappoint her deeply. Some of her experiences frighten her. It’s a challenge to learn how her ability to see the past or a distant event in the present in an ethical and compassionate manner. She has to learn to balance and control this gift, and has no one to teach her.

People who don’t have psychic abilities often imagine it must be wonderful. I have a different ability than Mae does—I dream the future, and sometimes get sudden intuitions about the future. Once I dreamed that the academic department at the college where I taught was going to be closed. When it happened, I was ready. But dreaming about an aunt’s terminal illness was troubling. I didn’t want to be right, and didn’t tell anyone in the family. It would have been less burdensome not to know in advance. When I shared foreknowledge with someone I thought it could help—a warning of an impending stroke—he laughed it off. Months later, it happened. These experiences helped me create my psychic character with empathy for her conflicts, but I made her gift unlike mine on purpose. Mae isn’t based on me, and it seemed better for the mystery plots if she couldn’t see the future.

 

Summary: The Calling

Obeying her mother’s warning, Mae Martin-Ridley has spent years hiding her gift of “the sight.” When concern for a missing hunter compels her to use it again, her peaceful life in a small Southern town begins to fall apart. New friends push her to explore her unusual talents, but as she does, she discovers the shadow side of her visions – access to secrets she could regret uncovering.

Gift or curse? When an extraordinary ability intrudes on an ordinary life, nothing can be the same again.
