The Spirit (The Tribe, #1)

***This story contains adult language and explicit sex scenes 18+ advised***

Before the white man settled the Appalachians, he stood over the people of the Tribe, providing all they needed to flourish in the shadow of the mountains.
The many tribes have given him many different names. Wakan Tanko. Maheo. To the people that first hunted the corner of Appalachia known to later generations as Wright’s Holler, he was Weshemoneto, the Great Spirit.
To Anna Madeline Wright, he would simply be Wes.
Born in the holler that bore her name, “Annie” Wright came from people that had learned to live on the land, people who believed in the magic saturating the woods around them. People who knew how to survive.
Circumstance of birth gave her power. Her skills gave her respect. Her magic gave them hope. In a town not yet influenced by the progress of the industrial revolution, Annie was a pauwau. A witch.
The winter of 1836 hit the town of McAllen hard and with her people in danger of annihilation, Annie called on the spirits for the power to save them. Her desperation called Weshemoneto himself . When they collided, she had to make a choice: Lose her town or lose her heart.

What happened next would become the stuff of legend for centuries to come.

In a forgotten part of the Appalachians, the town of McAllen is rife with the traces of departed native tribes and crumbling ghost towns, a remote corner of Ohio that has long been a place where superstition and secrets hide in the forests surrounding the mountains.
Sheriff Jessica Attwood was born there, and if she isn't careful, she'll die there. McAllen has a morgue full of bodies, a file of missing persons dating back to the Civil War and the sheriff has no idea what is happening in her town. Her questions only multiply when her investigation leads her to the half-breed mountain man, Sig, and her little world is thrown into a chaos that only calms when she's in his arms.
Sig has stayed out of it. Haunted by his own demons, his job is to protect the people that call this place home, enduring the scorn of a population almost completely unaffected by the outside world. The problem of McAllen's residents aren't his concern..until they come into his holler. His duty brings him face to face with the local sheriff, a woman he's watched from the shadows for years, drawn in a way he can't explain.
Jessica's investigation pulls her deeper into the holler, to a world of lost magic and small town legends.. legends that tell of a spirit roaming the woods, and a battle between good and evil that has raged for more than two centuries. As her fascination with Sig grows, something is calling her into the forest, into Sig's arms and putting her on the front lines.
Wild animal, crazed woodsman.. Jessica's guesses about the killer's identity are as thick as the trees, but, as the line between worlds starts to blur, the superstitious townsfolk voice another theory. There's something stalking the holler.
And it wants Jessica.

About Harper L. Jameson:
Harper L. Jameson was born in south eastern Ohio and raised on stories of the family seat in the holler–a tiny hamlet nestled in the shadow of the Appalachians. Her imagination ran wild, fueled on tales of folklore and superstitions…of Indian burial sites and haunted woods where magic still runs free. Starting with her debut novel “The Spirit”, she’s putting a new spin on paranormal romance by bringing the old legends back from our forgotten past. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband and children, but she never really left the holler. No one ever does.


Interview With Harper L. Jameson:
1. Can you tell us a little about your books? 
My current books are parts one and two (along with a pre-quel short story) of a paranormal romance series set in the Appalachian Mountains of Ohio. Based loosely on Native American legend and folk magic traditions of the area where I was born. Sometimes the best ideas come from your own life, I guess.
2. When did you know you wanted to write a book? 
When I started tinkering with the MC of The Holler, Sig, a few years ago. I thought about him more and more until I knew he needed his story told.
3. Do you work with an outline, or just write? 
I use a very loose outline, more to keep me on track than anything else. When you write PNR, the world you create can get out of hand pretty quickly.
4. Do you have a favorite food or drink you must have nearby when writing?  
A decaf, sugar-free vanilla latte. I like to fake myself into being able to focus.
5. Do you have a favorite character to write about? 

Actually it's a side character in The Tribe series. The sheriff's deputy, Tank Ansley. He's such a brutish and bullheaded good old boy that I can't help but love him and he's so hilariously clueless with all the supernatural stuff unfolding around him.

6. If  you could spend 24 hours as a fictional character, who would you chose? Oh, wow. Any fictional character? 
Probably a hunter in the Supernatural universe.
7. What are writing projects are you currently working on? 
Right now, I'm working on a novella to accompany The Tribe, as well as the first books in two completely different series, The Bound Ones and The Shadow Brethren. Those are going to be fun. The MC of the first Shadow Brethren book has multiple personalities.
