Pay It Forward Week is the brainchild of author Bethany Turner that’s been adopted by the Rave Reviews Book Club to profile, promote and propel a different fellow club member to a place in the sun for a whole day via our blogs, social networks and websites during this week. Today it’s my great pleasure and honour to present one of RRBC’s most supportive people the fabulous Loren Weaver author of the hoopy paranormal Victoria Novak: Paranormal Division series
ABOUT LOREN ~ by Loren!
I’m Loren Weaver, and I’m glad you’re here! Let me tell you a little about me.
To start, I’m not a full time writer. I have a BS in Civil Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. In my day job, I’m an engineer.
In my free time, I’m a personal fitness coach. I enjoy helping other people reach their health goals, which is more than just ‘lose 10 pounds.’
I’m currently working on a MA in Creative Writing from Southern New Hampshire University because I want to become a better writer. It’s slow going, but I’m learning a lot that I’m trying to apply to my stories. I’ve been writing since I was eleven, in one form or another. I like to think I’ve gotten a little better at it.
I’m a paranormal junkie. So most of my stories and a lot of the books I read are in that genre. I enjoy looking into the history of the paranormal myths and some of the modern twists. I’m also an avid reader and will discuss a good book all day long.
Interesting facts about me? I love crazy sports and have my black belt in Tae Kwon Do, master SCUBA diver certificate, and motorcycle license. I dream of setting foot on all seven continents before I die.
Hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little better!

The only living Sorceress, Victoria Novak, finally earned a peaceful, normal life. But with one howl on a full moon, her whole life crashes back into paranormal chaos. The FBI show up to recruit her to the Federal Paranormal Division, the very first all paranormal police force and she can’t decline.
Tori must train a new team of special agents in paranormal etiquette in the middle of solving a crime that’s leaving ravaged bodies twisted into grotesque shapes. Caught in the middle of a werewolf fight for dominance, Tori can’t let personal emotion interfere with solving a crime. Until the crime becomes personal.
With her life spinning into chaos, the real question is how far is she willing to go to answer Havoc’s Cry.
Victoria Novak, infamous Sorceress and Federal Paranormal Division Special Agent, just got a call from the police about four bloodless corpses. Now it’s time to investigate.
When she goes to the Coven Master for help, he gives her a vampire liaison. Gabriel, a 400 year old vampire with angel’s wings painted on his face, is violence on a leash. Tori and the team chase leads back to the new club Transylvanian Travesty, owned by a vampire that makes Tori weak with his power. But is he really involved in the killings?
A new vampire murder, paranormal politics, and police work. All in a normal day. But now, Gabriel’s ready to be free, and Tori may be the only way to ensure Archangel’s Salvation.
The Federal Paranormal Division just got a call from the police in New York. There’s been a rash of vampire murders in the Big Apple and they’re in over their heads. Of course, New York City is the vampire capitol of the western hemisphere, and going there without notifying the Council could mean the execution of Victoria Novak, the Sorceress and a FPD Special Agent.
Of course, she’s pretty sure that’s exactly the plan, but she can’t prove it. And so she must lead her team into the jaws of death because duty calls.
To make matters worse, caught in the middle of the drama are her old Coven Master and the vampire that finally gave her the freedom to leave his care. The more she digs into what’s going on, the more she hears Shadow’s Lament. Being a Dreamer has its perks; unfortunately, Shelby is having one dream too many about people meeting their tragic end. She is not alone. Since childhood, Shelby and Tristan have been frequent characters in each others’ subconscious world but have never met, until now.
Shelby catches sight of her familiar visitor in the halls of their school and realizes he is more than just a player in her visions. She is determined to warn Tristan of his impending doom, even if it means he’ll thinks she is insane. Before she has an opportunity to approach him, though, Tristan introduces himself and shares some unsettling news: He is also a Dreamer and it is Shelby’s lifeless body he sees in his dreams.
Shelby and Tristan should have died. What they see as a gift, Death sees as interference with fate. Despite keeping their gift hidden, one figure has taken notice. Death intends to stop them from meddling with the fate of others… permanently.
Death is now their shared nemesis. Eluding Death’s fatal designs will take vigilance, wit and the insight of their prophetic dreams. Even with the ability to see the enemy’s master plan, it may not be enough if Death throws in a twist, unless Shelby comes up with a twist of her own. Would it be enough to win round two? Sometimes you can cheat Death.
Leroy has finally caught up with Victoria Novak, the only living Sorceress, after years of running and hiding. But this time, he has no intent to let her go. He’s kidnapped the Sorceress with no ransom. Tori hopes her friends at the FPD are searching for her, but there’s little hope they’ll ever find her.
When she’s thrown into a cage with a young weretiger with no control, things could get very messy very fast. Tortured by silver bars on a silver cage, this tiger’s never seen the light of day. But it’s not just cruelty that made Tori and the tiger cell mates, Leroy is tormenting her with something.
Tori learns some horrifying facts about her new tiger friend, and now must escape with him to bring her Tiger’s Peace.
