Book Spotlight: Discernment & Touched

Welcome Lacy Sereduk,
author of 
Discernment and Touched

by Lacy Sereduk

ISBN:  978-0692229699
Genre: Thriller

Lying in bed at the end of a long day, eyes closed and relaxed, and you hear the voice of a small child, hurriedly whisper, "It's coming!"  Your eyes fly open and you survey the dark room because, the problem is, there shouldn't be any small children in your bedroom.

Have you ever turned down a darkened hall and thought you saw someone at the end of it?  Ever been awakened by something, in the middle of the night, and felt the hair raise up on your arms but there was nothing there?  Would you be able to stay in bed if you felt someone crawl up, onto the end of your bed, and slowly begin to pull the blankets from your shoulders?

Johanna Parks knows these feelings all too well.  Ever since she was a child, she's suffered from a disorder called night terrors.  Now just over 30, Jo struggle to hang on to 'real' life - her job, her relationship, her sanity- as the terror episodes become more and more vivid and everything, from visitors in the darkness to accidental injuries, tries to keep her up at night.

Discernment is a new thriller series in Kindle and paperback by Lacy Sereduk.  Discernment II: Touched is also now available with a third novel slated for release at the end of August.  If you've been looking for a book that can send chills down your spine and make you want a night-light, here it is.

"It is, simply, an expected part of life – Some days, it will rain and some days you’ll scream – Some days will be warm and some days you’ll see dead people – Some days you’ll buy milk and some days you’ll dive, head first, out a window." 

About the Author

Blog | Facebook | Author Central Page
Lacy Sereduk is an Idaho native and enjoys long walks on the beach, reading, coffee, and video games. But seriously, I have suffered from night terrors since I was a child. I was always told that they would go away and, if they hadn't by the time I reached adulthood, they were probably there to stay. Another unfortunate piece of information that I received was that a lot of people who continue to suffer into adulthood, also develop full-blown schizophrenia by 35. I'm a little over 30. I fully believe that would happen to people like me because the world just starts to dissolve around you after so many years of exhausting torture.

My hope for my book, Discernment, was, originally, cathartic. As a way to 'get out' some of the demons that have haunted me from childhood. After starting and sharing to get others thoughts, it became clear that other people thought it was worth publishing. Now, my hope for this book, when published, will be to help other sufferers know that they are not wholly alone in their fight toward the light. As well as to help parents of children afflicted to understand just what their kids might be going through and how to potentially help them. Spouses or partners of adult sufferers might gain a better understanding of the dark half or our lives. Many who have night terrors can't remember what was so terrifying or are too afraid or embarrassed to talk about it. My sharing may help shed a little light on what they could be going through when the light is turned off.

Another aspect I hope to attain is that my own children will have a better understanding of who I am and how I became the woman I am today. And, hopefully, they'll cut me some slack for not making breakfast in the morning, when they start to understand just what my nights could entail.
