My Journey to Spiritual Awakening

I have never been one to take the easy path. I don’t know why. What if it is because I have needed to learn something from one of my past lives–to heal from a past trauma, to open my eyes, to break an engrained pattern? What I do know know is that in the life I am currently living, I am stubborn as hell! I find myself very resistant to anything outside of the “norm” society teaches. 

The conflict I have is I am also very much wanting to have “powers”. I have since I was a child. I have been obsessed with the occult, fantasy, sci fi, all that kind of stuff. 

Every single person on this earth will experience their awakening differently. Because I am writing about my personal journey, my words speak only for my experience. Through my spiritual awakening, I realize that those things are real–in a sense. For instance, when you consider, I have learned that as humans, we can only do so many things with our powers. Our souls, when in human form, are not able to do all of the super powerful things they can do outside of this plane.

HOWEVER, we can experience our super powers with practice. 

For me, my empathic abilities and intuition are strong. I know things. My connection to energy is something I have always had. I know when someone is upset. I know when someone is sad. I know when people are lying. I know when someone will call, or when they are near. I have always had these powers, but I chalked it up to being good at reading people. It wasn’t until I was awakened that I knew these were my gifts–my super powers. 

In my journey, I have awakened many times. MANY TIMES. Like I said earlier, I always take the hard path: 

I awaken, then I reject it.

I awaken, and I am so ready, then I reject it.

Time and time again, I reject what I feel, what I know to be true, and my programming takes over, and I push it away. 

Over the course of a few years, my mentor, Christine Contini has been so very patient with me. She has helped me realize I am ready in my own time. She has loved me, assisted me, and shown me everything I needed. For lack of a better term, Christine has raised me to grow into my awakening. I am forever grateful to her. 

One day, I will share details of my experiences, but for now, I wanted you to see that my journey is just beginning, and I can’t wait to share my experiences with you all. My wish is that through the New Earth Network platform I can continue to grow and to share my journey with the world. I hope that my experiences can help you and others in any stage of your journey. 

In our room on Clubhouse one of our listeners said something that I think is so fitting for this:

“You’ve got to believe in magic to see it.”

Secret of Souls Audio book

You guys! I am pretty excited that Secret of Souls has been moved to a permanent price of $2.99 for the kindle edition. But did you see how cheap the paperback, audio, and even hardback are right now? I have no idea how long that sale is going to last, so get them while you can! 

The audio book is DIVINE! My narrator is phenomenal! Her voice was made for Secret of Souls. She brings the characters to life, and gives them a depth I couldn’t accomplish on my own. Check her out here.

Lets talk about audio books for a minute. How do you feel about them? I have quite a few friends who listen to them, and that is how they read. I have other friends who read strictly physical books, others who read eBooks, and then there’s me, I am somewhere in between all 4. I don’t particularly prefer one format of reading over the other. I just love reading, and will absorb it however I can. There are those out there who say audio books are not reading, and that is simply not true.

Reading is about being immersed in a world that is not your own, with characters and stories that take you away from your reality. Its about getting lost and taking adventures. Its about love and heartbreak, death and life. You don’t get to tell another human being how they get to experience that. And for the record, one way of reading, does not supersede another. Reading is about experiencing, and that is it.  Sigh…and that is all I have to say on the matter.

Anyway, here are a few of my favorite audio books:

-The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater, narrated by Will Patton get it here.

-Graveyard Shift by Angela Roquet narrated by Hollie Jackson get it here.

-The Cruel Prince by Holly Black narrated by Caitlin Kelly get it here.

-Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling narrated by Jim Dale get it here.

Happy Reading!

-Aubrie

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Requiem of Sorrow

I have been so busy with my life, that writing, promoting etc…has taken a back seat. I want to apologize to all of my readers, and tell you how very sorry I am. I hope you can understand that sometimes life takes over, and creative wells run dry.Requiem of Sorrow: An Age of Endings Novelette (The Age of Endings Book 0) by [Nixon, Aubrie]

I neglected to post that the prequel to Secret of Souls, aka Daegan’s novella was released September 1st! Because it is a short story, about 65 pages, it is only available as a kindle edition. You can find it here.

I hope you enjoy reading Daegan’s story, and can get to know him a little bit better. He is my all time favorite character. His backstory is gruesome, dark and twisty. (Just how I like them) I think you will find, as I did, that Daegan is human. He’s smart, witty, kind, and ultimately a big softie. Something happens to him that hardens his heart, and makes him the ruthless killer we see in Secret of Souls.

As always, please review!!! Reviews good or bad, help authors out so much! Thank you all! And once again, I love hearing from you! So feel free to shoot me a message at any time. 🙂

 

 

Daegan’s Novella

Thank you all so very much for the love and support you continue to show me on this journey! It means the world. ❤ So, I have been MIA for a while. I have been dealing with some mental and physical health issues. I chose to take a step back for a few months, and because I did that, book 2 will not be released until 2019. Fear not, demons! For I have written a novella to hopefully hold you over.

This novella is written from Daegan’s perspective, and its from his time in his realm aka Lands of Sorrow, before he is forced to come to the Empire of Lucent. I hope it will answer a few lingering questions, and help shine some light on Daegan and his persona a bit more.

 

So…without further ado, the title reveal:

 

 

 

R U S R O

 

I hope you like it as much as I do! ❤

 

If you haven’t read Secret of Souls, and would like to do so, feel free to check it out here.

Don’r forget! The best way to support any author is to leave reviews! Good or bad, reviews are the absolute BEST!

 

Love you guys!

 

More to come….

Bookstores and Bathrooms

Picture this: You’re prancing (yes, prancing) about in your favorite bookstore. Be that a local Indie bookstore, Barnes and Noble, Books A Million, or Borders (RIP you beautiful bastard.) You’re daydreaming about all of the phenomenal and magical adventures that await you in the pages of the books all around you. You smile, breathing in that fresh, delightful scent. The scent that you know well. The pages of a book, hundreds of books. You run your fingers across the shelves that hold the portals to numerous worlds, and you smile. That’s when you feel it. A rumbling in your stomach. You know it well, for it happens almost EVERY time you come into a book store. You need to poop.

If you have experienced the phenomenon you w1006are not alone. Its so common in fact, that it even has a name. The Mariko Aoki phenomenon. For real. It has something to do with the  scent of paper and ink mixing, creating a laxative effect. That, combined with reading on the toilet back at home, makes for the perfect pooping atmosphere.

I am NOT ashamed to say that I poop literally every.single.time. I go to the bookstore. It takes about five minutes before I am headed to the potty. In fact, my friends Shannel and Aylssa have both witnessed this first hand. We were browsing the clearance rack at BAM when I said, “Oppp, there it is.” They both looked at me confused. So I explained the Mariko Aoki effect to them, and went on my merry way to the bathroom.

I don’t know about you, but I find it comforting knowing that I can count on the book store poop. You can’t count on much in life, but for me, its one thing I can rest assured will always happen.

Have you ever experienced this? C’mon, don’t be shy! Tell me in the comments below!

EXCERPT

Copyright © 2017 by Harloe Rae

Lark shoots me a glare before asking, “What are you doing here?”
The venom in her voice is probably meant to scare me away but all I hear is come closer. I’m totally mesmerized.
“Hey, Sweetheart. I said you’d be seeing me soon. Figured I’d stop by and say hello in person.” I make sure to keep my tone calm but my skin inches with heat at the fire burning from her gaze.
“And I told you to leave me alone unless you’re ready to give me what I want.” She shifts her stare down to my groin while raising an expectant brow. “Is that what you’ve brought me?” She lifts her scorching eyes back to my face and seductively bites into her bottom lip.
Her sass is tantalizing but it’s the beauty underneath I’m truly after. “Sorry to disappoint you but that’s not why I’m here, Vix. I want to discuss some stuff, relating to us.”
“Vix? As in the vapor rub?”
An amused chuckle bounces up my throat. “Nah, short for Vixen.”
She seems to mull it over with a slight tilt of her head. “I suppose that’s fitting, though you don’t need to be handing out nicknames. Tell me, what could we possibly have to talk about?”
“No idle chit-chat first? I’m hoping we can get to know each other. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you since the other night and this sexy librarian look you’re rocking is hot as hell, but it’s more than that. Are you willing to hear me out? Maybe make an exception for me?”
A frustrated sigh answers my question. “I don’t have the patience for this, Rowen. I’m very busy here and you’re wasting my time.”
I lean against the door, trying to show I’m not ready to leave quite yet. “Answer me this. Where did you work when you were younger? Let’s say seven years ago?”
Lark glances away before shuffling some papers into piles. Her fidgeting makes me smile because now I’m certain she remembers just fine. A barely-there blush blooms on her cheeks while she continues avoiding my question. I wait her out and soon enough she graces me with a response.
“I don’t see how that’s any of your business.” Her deflection causes me to edge forward a bit, as though we need to be closer. She speaks to the depths of my soul, no matter if she gives me sass or softness.
“I’m trying here, Vix. Want to help me out? Did you work at Brack’s Box during the summer of 2010? Maybe a guy stopped in on a random July afternoon and stumbled over his words in your stunning presence. Do you remember that?”
Lark is still avoiding eye contact but I hear her whispered yes as if she shouted it across the room.

AND WE ARE LIVE!!!

SURPRISE EVERYONE!

Secret of Souls is now available!

SecretofSouls CoverThank you all so much for following me on this journey through the jungle of publishing! Its been quite a wild ride, wouldn’t you say? I am so grateful to each and every one of you for taking this journey with me. I couldn’t have done it alone.

I will be sending out preorder goodies to those of you who preordered in the next week or two. 🙂 I need etc order the SWAG for the goodie bags, so as soon as those get here, we are good to go! I legitimately handed out ALL of my SWAG at SLC Comic Con. I was blown away by the interest and excitement over SoS. YAY!

I haven’t had much of a chance to promote this release. But in the next week or so be on the look out for giveaways, blog stuff, and hopefully if all goes well, a Facebook party with some other fantastic authors!

If you haven’t yet ordered Secret of Souls you can do so on amazon here:

https://goo.gl/hUYrCV

You can also buy SoS from literally ANY online bookstore. Amazon just happens to help me out the most and get me the most reach.

They are currently out of stock of paperback and hardcovers, but we are getting that fixed! I estimate it should update by this weekend. Don’t quote me on that, though. I’ll know as soon as you guys do when it updates. 🙂

I love you, my demons!

 

Author Blitz: Laura C. Cantu

Hey ya’ll! I have a new feature on my blog where I am going to feature an author I like, admire, or just want to help them promote! The author community is actually pretty small, and helping each other by sharing pages, sisal medias, blogs, etc…is very important! I hope you find some awesome new authors this way! ❤

Without further ado, I want to introduce my press sister and mentor: Laura C. Cantu!!! She wrote a gorgeous and magical book called Betwixters.

Here is the synop:

A mysterious forest near the cozy town of Herogate, England is more than what it seems.
he gnarled trees appear to breathe, gloomy storms follow you around, and prowling shadows come to life before your very eyes. Referred to as The Dark Wood by the townsfolk, 2244272the forest is guarded by a strange old man and creatures not of this world. Even the locals never set foot in the bewitched woodlands, and trespassers have a way of turning up dead.

When Noah Walters moves to town with his parents, his father—a contractor working on a top secret project for a private security firm—makes Noah promise to never enter those woods; but he doesn’t know that Fate has other plans.

Noah and his new best friends, Ethan and Skye, are chased into The Dark Wood by Grucker, a schoolyard bully, and their lives are changed forever. They are forced into the heart of the forest, where they discover a lost fairy who needs their help to find her way back home before it’s too late.

Join Noah and his friends on a magical adventure as they race against time and plunge headfirst into the unknown. They are challenged with secrets to keep, a dangerous mission to accomplish, and a test of courage that will bring them face-to-face with magical creatures they thought only existed in fairy tales.

This is more than a tale of discovery, mystery, and excitement; it’s an epic adventure that will usher you into a world where magic is in the air, in the trees, and in every heart.

Its perfect for all ages! I read it with my kiddo and he LOVED it! We can’t wait for book 2. Currently, the kindle version is on sale for $3.99. You can get that here. The sale runs through the end of August! She is also running an Amazon giveaway for a print version. Enter that here.
