Author name: JP McLean
Book to feature: Blood Mark
News to share: I’m pleased to share the news that Blood Mark, the first in a brand-new paranormal thriller series, will be released on October 19, 2021.
What if your lifelong curse is the only thing keeping you alive? Abandoned at birth, life has always been a battle for Jane Walker. She and her best friend, Sadie, spent years fighting to survive Vancouver’s cutthroat underbelly. That would have been tough enough without Jane’s mysterious afflictions: an intricate pattern of blood-red birthmarks that snake around her body and vivid, heart-wrenching nightmares that feel so real she wakes up screaming.
After she meets the first man who isn’t repulsed by her birthmarks, Jane thinks she might finally have a chance at happiness. Her belief seems confirmed as the birthmarks she’s spent her life so ashamed of magically begin to disappear. Yet, the quicker her scarlet marks vanish, the more lucid and disturbing Jane’s nightmares become—until it’s impossible to discern her dreams from reality, and Jane comes to a horrifying realization:
The nightmares that have plagued her since childhood are actually visions of real people being stalked by a deadly killer. And all this time, her birthmarks have been the only things protecting her from becoming his next victim.

Hi Jill – I agree, the cover is fantastic. Thanks for stopping by to support Jo-Anne!
Interesting plotline. I’ve never heard one like this!
I too, haven’t read one quite like this before. It was a challenge to write, but the fun kind. Like solving a puzzle.
Hi Jacqui – thanks for stopping by to read about Jo-Anne’s book!
Thanks for the opportunity to update your readers, Barb!
Of course, Jo-Anne – it’s great to have you here today!
I have read it. And I am not a thriller-reader – but this book kept me reading – I forgot to do my house wife duties. And forgot bedtime. What an imagination this lady has. Where is it coming from – dreams? I am waiting for the continuation… Having read Jo-Ann’s other books I am an avid fan of hers!
Hi Giselle – so nice to hear from you and of your reaction to Jo-Anne’s books! Thanks for the visit 🙂
Thanks, Giselle! That’s very kind of you to say 🙂
What a twisting and thrilling plot. Congratulations, JP, for your upcoming release! Thank you for sharing, Barbara.

Hi Noelle – thank you for taking the time to read about Jo-Anne’s new book!
This sounds very interesting, Barbara. An unusual premise.
Yes, I agree – thank you for stopping by to read about Jo-Anne’s book. Hope you are making something sweet right now (in your off-hours from work, that is!)
HI Barbara, thank you, I had a great baking weekend and finished my Happy Holiday Halloween Hextravaganza. I’ve entered it in a gingerbread competition and will share it on my blog when the voting opens. I also made my mom a black forest cake for her birthday.
Ah yes, I saw that cake – looks yummy! Did you know that my relatives are from the Black Forest region in Germany?
I didn’t know that, how interesting.
We went there once, when I was 7 and I met all my German cousins.
