Rachel thought: “Oh brother, she really was ill-equipped for this, but too late for remedial space alien protocol. Worse yet, she was the alien!”
Second in the Rachel Blackstone Paranormal Mystery Series.
From award-winning writer G G Collins.
Reluctant Medium Rachel Blackstone watches in horror as a friend vanishes into a painting at a posh Santa Fe gallery. Unable to find her by normal methods, the reporter must look for her via the astral plane. There she will meet her most frightening nemesis and defend herself on the Terror of the Threshold. Will it be the Mesoamerican deity who enjoys human snacks or the evil spirit she crossed paths with before? What she doesn’t expect is to land in an ancient civilization intent on keeping her–and her unproven powers. Part of this territory is inhabited by gentle people, flora and fauna that communicate telepathically. But the other residents are decidedly ruthless. Legend says the lost continent of Lemuria sank eons ago. Rachel’s visit must be brief or she could be caught up in the cataclysm. She employs crystal power to help her communicate with friend Chloe back home in New Mexico and to defend herself from cosmological attacks.
In Santa Fe, Chloe and soul navigator F Dominic Magellan search frantically for the body of their friend in its altered state. They must return it to the art gallery so she can reclaim it. That proves difficult when they run across someone, or something, who will do anything to stop them.
On the astral plane, Rachel has to multitask, coping with earthquakes and volcanoes as the end of the long-lost culture is set in motion, all while staging the rescue of her friend. Catching the red-eye home to the 21st century could prove difficult as she desperately looks for a way to escape a violent society. They must find Rachel’s silver cord or they cannot return.
Can Rachel become a successful astral-naut? Or will she be forever lost in the cosmos?
Contains: mild horror effects, profanity, humor.

AUTHOR BIO: Walking several beats, reporter G G Collins racked up a lot of column inches, a few awards and a writing fellowship at Duke University. She never met a story she didn’t like.
There was another side lurking. This side of her personality is fond of the strange, the frightening, the paranormal. When she graduated from children’s books at about 12, she began her adult reading career with Shirley Jackson’s “We Have Always Lived in the Castle.” Wow! She wasn’t expecting that ending.
The day she discovered the Hopi ceremony to call back the dead, she just had to ask the question: What would happen if the wrong spirit returned? “Reluctant Medium” resulted and a new series was born.
FORTHCOMING: “Atomic Medium.” A time warp has opened in a popular Santa Fe retail store on Palace Avenue. The building was the main office of the Manhattan Project during its development in the 1940s. Evil has once again slipped into Santa Fe. It is using the portal to give the Germans the upper hand during WWII. Only one person has witnessed the entry of two dangerous men through the doorway to the past. If they can’t be stopped, history will be changed. For Rachel, it’s no small chore: just save the world..
