THE DRUID NEXT DOOR by E.J. Russell Blog Tour

About The Druid Next Door

Professor Bryce MacLeod has devoted his entire life to environmentalism. But how effective can he be in saving the planet when he can’t even get his surly neighbor to separate his recycling?

Former Queen’s Enforcer Mal Kendrick doesn’t think his life could get any worse: he’s been exiled from Faerie with a cursed and useless right hand. When he’s not dodging random fae assassins in the Outer World, he’s going toe-to-toe with his tree-hugging neighbor. And when he discovers that the tree hugger is really a druid, he’s certain the gods have it in for him—after all, there’s always a catch with druids. Then he’s magically shackled to the man and expected to instruct him in Supernatural 101.

All right, now things couldn’t possibly get worse.

Until a mysterious stranger offers a drunken Mal the chance to gain back all he’s lost—for a price. After Mal accepts, he discovers the real catch: an ancient secret that will change his and Bryce’s life forever.

Ah, what the hells. Odds are they won’t survive the week anyway.

About the Fae Out of Water Series

Once upon a time, there were three brothers, nobles of the Seelie Court of Faerie, who set out to seek their fortunes. The eldest—

Scratch that. Rrrrrewind.

Nowadays, when tales are told in 140 character bursts on tiny LED screens, rather than spun out by the glow of a midnight campfire, even Faerie’s elite have to get with the program.

The Kendrick brothers have traded longbow for briefcase, battle steed for Harley, and enchanted harp for electric guitar.  But while they’re finding their feet in the modern world, instead of finding their fortunes, they stumble straight into love.

Book Description: 
Evil roams the streets of New Orleans... Surrounded by the romance and mystery of the French Quarter, psychics Trudy Tucker and Levi Wolfe search for a taker of lives. Combining their unique skills, they zero in on a serial killer who has been murdering for more than a decade.

“How is life treating you, Trudy?” Dr. McClain asked. “I hear you’re chasing down a serial killer in New Orleans. That’s sounds dangerous, but Levi assures me that you generally work from a distance.”
“Yes, that’s right. It’s mental for us.” Her thoughts immediately contradicted her as she recalled their first case when she was attacked by a knife-wielding madman and the next one when she was attacked by a gun-wielding madman. “Mostly,” she repeated.
“How was it for you, growing up with second-sight?”
She shook her head. “I don’t have that.”
“No? Have I used the wrong word?”
“Yes. Second-sight is seeing the future. I don’t do that. I see things happening in real time.”
The doctor nodded. “That’s not as common as seeing the future, is it? Among clairvoyants, that is.”
“Levi told me that I’m the only one he’s ever met who can actually slip into someone’s mind and experience what they’re experiencing at that moment.”
“Do you recall the first time this happened?”
She had been asked this so many times, but didn’t have a solid answer for it. “Not really. It was gradual. For a long time, I thought I was dreaming or daydreaming. I thought it happened to everyone.”
“That’s rational. You were a child, so how could you know that it was unusual? When did you start talking about it to others, like to your parents or siblings?”
“I’m not sure about that, either. My mother recalls me saying strange things about seeing stuff people were doing when I was in elementary school. She figured I had imaginary friends or something like that.”
Dr. McClain smiled. “I thought the same thing about Levi when he first told me about his experiences as a child with Gregory.”
“You thought he’d made him up so that he wouldn’t feel alone?”
“But now you believe that Gregory is a spirit guide?” Trudy wondered how much of a believer the doctor was and how much she just went along with it.
“As much as I can grasp such a thing, yes. What I definitely know is that without Gregory Levi would probably have had a severe nervous breakdown from which he might never have recovered.” She closed the notebook. “I batted around the idea that Gregory was a personality of Levi’s. That Levi’s traumas as a child had split into personalities as a coping mechanism. After several sessions, I knew that wasn’t the case with him. Did you have something like that growing up?”
“No. Not then. I do now.” She shrugged. “But she’s not as helpful as Gregory is to Levi. She kind of shows up at strange times and cheers me on or looks frightened.”
Dr. McClain rolled her lips inward to keep from smiling. “You don’t sound too impressed with her.”
“I didn’t believe in spirit guides either. I thought they were a crock. It’s almost as if Ethel showed up to spite me.” She waved aside the theory. “Anyway, I didn’t have imaginary friends in that way. And the glimpses I received of other people’s lives grew longer and more frequent when I was around twelve.”
“Uh, yes. I suppose. They really got bad when I was in college. I thought I might go nuts then.”
“Is that about when you became sexually active?”
She had to think about that for a few moments. “Yes. I guess it was. It was so bad then that I even thought about . . .” She swallowed, but forced the word out. “Suicide.” She glanced up to catch the sharpening of the doctor’s gaze. “I didn’t try anything. Ever. Not even close. But the thought crept up every so often when it was particularly gruesome. The stuff I experienced,” she clarified.
“And can you define ‘gruesome’ for me? What did you see?”
“I’d be minding my own business – studying or whatever – and bam! I’m suddenly no longer me. I’m someone else in some stranger’s mind and body and I’m doing horrible things. I’m torturing women, beating them, slicing them up, raping them, murdering them.” She shuddered, crossing her arms over herself and rubbing the sleeves of her jacket up and down, up and down. Cold seeped into her, chilling her to the point that her teeth chattered. “It’s a helpless feeling, being trapped in a nightmare like that and knowing, somehow, that it’s not a dream. That it’s real. It’s happening. Someone is begging for her life. And the person I’ve become is getting off on it, loving every second of it. It’s always a man. I become this male monster, jacking off and ramming myself into defenseless women.” She closed her eyes. “Quintara and Levi have helped me to control it more, to detach myself enough that I’m not ruined by the whole experience.”
