 EXCERPTS
 
Excerpt 1 from Bishop’s Desire by Normandie Alleman
The phone woke me up at 1:17 AM. Phone calls that time of night always sent a chill up my spine. They were never good news.
“Reverend Soto?” A female voice rattled over the other end of the line.
“Yes?”
“This is Kay Long. I’m sorry to bother you, but I didn’t know who else to call.”
“Yes, Kay. How can I help?” I made sure to sound more awake than I was.
Kay prattled on, and I could hear the worry in her voice.
“It’s George. He’s gone off the wagon again. Down on Bourbon Street, and I can’t get him to come home. I’d go after him myself, but I can’t leave the twins, and I
can’t put them in a stroller and go get him. Not down at the strip clubs.”
“True.”
That wasn’t a practical solution. Mrs. Long had twins who were going on about
six months old now. Her husband had been attending AA meetings at the church
semi-regularly. He’d been trying.
Rain pinged steadily on the roof, and I really didn’t feel like getting out of bed
and heading down to the French Quarter. “Don’t you think he’ll catch a cab when
he’s ready to come home?”
“Maybe, but I’m afraid he’ll get locked up, like last time. And I can’t afford the bail money. Not with all these diapers and formula. Can you please help me?”
I held the phone out and sighed. “Want me to go looking for him?”
“I hate to ask, but yes. Unless you can think of another way to get him home without an incident.”
I couldn’t. “I’ll see what I can do. Do you recall the name of a few of his
favorite places?”
“Maybe check the Booby Trap or the Leopard Lounge. George likes all those titty bars. I’m sorry Father. I can’t imagine that you’d know much about those type
places.”
I smiled. Mrs. Long would be shocked to learn some of the things I knew about.

 

Excerpt 2 from Smart Baztard by Ines Johnson
Prince’s eyes glazed over the string of dental floss that most of the girls wore. Their swimwear was a sea of solid colors that had already been solved by many hands. Bored with the flesh on display, he looked down at the cube in his hands.
Prince had solved his first Rubix Cube at eight-years-old. At that young age, he’d
known intuitively that if he repeated certain patterns he could solve each
color, side by side. Twenty years later, his fingers worked the cube until he’d
made a cross-pattern with the yellow blocks. Then he executed a sequence of
turns to make L-shapes with those same blocks. A few more twists and turns and
he’d have a solid yellow side. The simple algorithm was so ingrained in his
mind that his fingers solved the problem without the aide of his eyes, allowing
his gaze to once again take in the party around his next door neighbor’s pool.
His gaze fixed on a tasteful 1950’s style bikini that fully cupped a pair of generous
breasts and completely covered a heart-shaped ass. It was the complex color
pattern that caught his attention. A Rubix Cube has six faces. A bikini has
three; four if you counted the back.
Fuck! He was looking at her ass. Prince turned back to the array of dental floss.
He could look at any ass, except hers. But the pattern on her bikini bottom stuck in his mind and he snuck another glance. On the fabric were blocks of the colors
white, red, green, blue, orange, and yellow -just like a Rubix Cube. The yellow
blocks would make a cross-pattern if she just turned to the right. Two twists
to the left and the necessary L-shape would form. He worked out the pattern at
the apex of her thighs. He knew the exact sequence to solve the triangular
pattern on her left breast. He only needed to reverse it on the right breast.
When his gaze met round, pink lips that revealed pearly white teeth, he was stumped.
He’d come to the end of the algorithm. He knew that returning Gabby’s smile
would be a miscalculation and so he looked away.


 

Excerpt 3 from Ignite by Amity Cross

“Hey, Mountain.” A loud voice from behind the man drew his attention, and he
let me go as a hand slapped on his shoulder. “I see you found my girl.”
“She’s yours?” the man asked, his eyes narrowing in annoyance.
I raised my head and hesitated when I saw the man who’d approached us. It was
Blade. The guy from the cage with the right hook from hell.
His eyebrow was split from the fight, and a few drops of blood were smeared
across his forehead. Up close, he was better looking than from my vantage point
on the bleachers. He’d put on a T-shirt and jeans since, and his hair was damp.
“Thanks for keeping her warm for me, but I reckon you should fuck off,” he said
to Mountain. “You’re going to scare her off, mate.”
“Pussy,” he growled. “Prove it.”
Blade sighed and then glanced at me. Before I knew what was happening, he
reached out and wrapped his hand around my braid, pulling me against his chest.
His mouth covered mine, his lips hard and commanding. When his tongue swept
into my mouth, I melted, letting him kiss me like I was nothing more than a
thing. And fuck me if it wasn’t hot as hell…and completely bloody stupid.
When he pulled away, he stared at me almost apologetically.
“Blade, mate, c’mon. Share your pussy around for once in your sorry life.”
“Fuck off, Mountain,” he said with a snarl, not breaking eye contact with me.
“I’m not into group situations, and I definitely don’t want to see your cock.”
Wrapping his arm around my shoulders, Blade guided me away from the danger zone and back out into the warehouse. It felt safer out here, but now I knew it was
an illusion.
“I’m sorry,” I muttered. “I got lost…”
Turning, he looked me over and raised an eyebrow. “You here alone?”
I nodded, starting to feel exceptionally stupid.
He grinned like he already knew my answer. “What’s your name?” I opened my
mouth to reply, but he placed a finger over my lips, and I shivered at the
contact. “You can be whoever you want here.”
I was plain Alison Anders, the butt of all the office jokes, demure,
straitlaced, alone, a shell of her former self. There wasn’t a wild bone in my
body, but suddenly, I felt like I could be anyone.
“Ali,” I said through a heavy breath. The name rolled from my lips without
hesitation, and I knew it was fate. Life had just been blown into my dead body,
and it’d been delivered by the kiss of a stranger. A hot, dangerous,
bloodstained stranger.
“Ali,” he murmured. “I think you’d better go home. This isn’t a nice place for
a woman on her own.”
I froze, my mind pulverized into mush. Go home?
He smirked, his gaze lowering. Just when I thought he was staring at my boobs,
he plucked the ticket stub out of my breast pocket and peered at the bet I’d
placed. His lips curved into a grin, and he pressed the bit of paper into my
hand.
“You’d better collect your winnings on the way out, darlin’.” He winked before
turning away, and my gaze fell to his ass. “You’re welcome.”

Jack the Anthropophagite (Reaper Series Book 3)

Tagline:

Jack will eat no fat but will devour lean.’

Description:

While drifting from town to town, Zeus and Brody meet Mr. McMurty, a generous widower in need of help. In exchange for a place to stay, they agree to do odd jobs around his farm.

Then one rainy night, Zeus notices a man standing outside the bathroom window. Brody searches the property but finds no trace. Zeus is certain of what he saw, and he’s certain their peaceful stint is about to come to an abrupt end.

Excerpt:

We returned to the farmstead, showered and put on clean clothes, and packed our duffel bag. It was still raining when we left, and the daylight had sunk into a murky haze. Brody exited the house first, and I don’t know why, but again a real uneasy feeling filled me…

SHADE: Girl on a hero’s journey, going from smart-ass to badass.

Thanks to her offbeat mother, Shade’s full name is Galactic Shade Griffin. Having a name like that while being the new girl in school is pretty much catnip for bullies. The summer before Shade’s junior year of high school, her mother breaks up with yet another boyfriend and moves them once again to a new town.

This time, they move into a dilapidated old house where Shade has an entire attic bedroom to herself—at least until she discovers it’s haunted by the ghost of a teenaged boy named Brandon Yates. When Shade’s best friend goes missing, her life becomes even more complicated. With the help of Brandon who’s struggling with his own issues in the world beyond, Shade faces the question of whether or not she has what it takes to become a true hero.

Although this novel deals with a number of serious issues—drug and alcohol abuse, cutting, and disturbing world events—it’s primarily a novel about a teenaged girl finding out who she
really is and that she’s capable of so much more than she ever thought possible.

SHADE is a YA Paranormal Mystery novel.

excerpt1

Shade and her friends interviewing Gabriella Underwood, a local psychic, at her home in the YA Paranormal Mystery novel, Shade, by Marilyn Peake.

George started. “How long have you been a psychic?”

Lame! Lame! Lame! I wanted to crack myself over the head with the walking stick leaning
against the wall next to the fireplace.

Gabriella Underwood had grace and style. She answered, as though honored to be interviewed, “I’m not sure, exactly. I think I was born a psychic or came into it at a very young age. I didn’t know what it was, though, or had any sense of its power, until puberty.” She laughed. “Isn’t that the way for all of us, though? Innate forces move within us and make their grand entrance at puberty. Then it’s up to us to make sense of them and become the people we were meant to be.”

At the mere mention of the word puberty, I blushed a million shades of color, I’m sure, running the entire spectrum from pink to crimson red. I looked over at the flames roaring in the fireplace. I didn’t look up to see if George and Kailee had also reacted with embarrassment and shame. Yeah, seriously, me as an old soul? I couldn’t even hear the word puberty without thinking about sex and blushing in shame.

Gabriella continued as though nothing were amiss. “At three years old, I had a frightening dream that my grandfather had died. The next day, my grandfather passed away. When I was four years old, I fell into a daydream and imagined that my mother had taken ill. The following week, my mother found out that she was pregnant. It was a rough pregnancy and in the last few months of it, she was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. It haunted me as a child that maybe I had caused the death of my grandfather and the illness of my mother that could have affected the birth of my baby sister. But I always tucked the fear in the back of my brain and told myself it was all just a coincidence.” She paused. Took a sip of hot chocolate. “Oh my, that’s good chocolate. A friend in Europe sent it to me.” Another sip. “But then, when I was around thirteen years of age, I started ‘seeing’ all kinds of things before they happened. Also, details about things after they happened, details that no one else knew about. I saw a vague mark on my best friend’s forehead that no one else could see. It was kind of like a black smudge, kind of like the ash that Catholics get on their heads before Lent. No one else could see it. Seven months later, Sophie was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.” Gabriella stopped speaking for a moment and looked away, lost to memory. She returned her gaze to ours and smiled weakly. “It took me years to recognize that what I had was a gift. But a gift without a voice. As long as I was frightened by it and refused to give it voice, I could help no one. If I could find my voice, however, I might be able to inform people of things I could see that would help them.”

Kailee asked the next question, “When did you come out?” She blushed. “I mean, when did you come out as a psychic?”

Gabriella beamed. “Coming out is a great way to phrase that! I got teased so much as a kid just for being different and for having the strange name of Gabriella Underwood, you have to believe I was scared to death to tell people I could tell the future. When I finally did, it was an act of coming out about who I really was.”

I had found a kindred spirit, weird name and all. Although I have to admit, compared to Galactic Shade Griffin, I thought of Gabriella Underwood as a completely normal name—not as American-flag-and-apple-pie as Mary Jane Smith, mind you, but not anywhere near as freakish as the odd name foisted upon me.

Gabriella continued, “Years later, when I was eighteen years old and coming into full possession of my powers, something happened that finally convinced me I had to stop hiding what I had.” Gabriella stood up. She added a few more logs to the fireplace. She stirred the ashes.

Marilyn Peake

Featured Book: Shade

Hi, everyone! I’m so happy to be here!

So glad to have you join us, Marilyn. Let’s get right to it! How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I started writing seriously in high school. Back then, I wrote poems and short stories. I also wrote articles for three local newspapers and had some poetry published there. When I was in graduate school, I actually enjoyed writing my thesis. In 2002, I published my first novel, a children’s fantasy adventure novel titled THE FISHERMAN’S SON.

How did you come up with this storyline?
For my YA Paranormal Mystery novel, SHADE, which is my book in the Dark Legends Collection, I first came up with the main character, Shade. I really like her. She’s spunky and brave. When her very difficult and chaotic mother moves them to an old rundown Victorian house, I knew there would be a ghost there. That happens early on in the story. I outlined the novel before starting to write, so I also knew what the major mystery in the story would be and why it was important to the ghost to help Shade solve it.

What are the best and the worst aspects of writing?
The best aspects are creating new worlds and storytelling, sharing those stories with readers and hearing from readers who enjoyed them. The worst aspects all involve sitting for too many hours and pushing myself too hard – not exactly recommended by health experts and it’s not great for one’s social life.

What inspires you to write?
Really great books, movies and TV shows. Those always inspire me and get me excited about writing my own stories.

How did you conduct your research for SHADE?
I Googled articles on quite a few subjects from ghosts to psychics to criminal investigations.

What are 3 of your favorite quotes from SHADE?

“Once class started, I only got called on once, to answer a question about why Romeo and Juliet had pretended to die. That was easy. We had discussed Romeo and Juliet a little bit the previous year at my old school…and, well, duh, because the adults in their lives wouldn’t let them be who they really were and date who they really loved, and they had to let everyone think they were dead so that they could sneak away, be themselves, follow their hearts’ desires and have no one look for them.”

“Brandon [ghost who had died in the 1970s] discovered that he loved a cell phone trivia game based on facts about the 1970s. He also found Angry Birds seriously addicting. After twenty games of snorting piggies, I made him turn the sound down. Then I taught him how to mute the phone. He unmuted it, said the game wasn’t the same without the sounds. Well, he got that right. It definitely wasn’t.”

Shade talking about her mom:

“And there it was, once again. Hanging in the air like invisible poisoned fruit, waiting to be plucked from the tree and discussed. If she hadn’t gotten pregnant…with me…so
young, life would have been better. She would have been a great success.

“Sure.

“And monkeys would have grown wings.

“And world peace would have been achieved.”

More Favorites from SHADE:

The tagline for SHADE is: Shade: Girl on a hero’s journey, going from smart-ass to badass.

Shade’s mom was always embarrassing her. I love Shade’s snarky sense of humor. Here’s one of her comments I especially got a kick out of because her snark clearly shows through: “The next day, I remembered just how truly lucky I was. My mom drove me to school in her rusty old van. She was wearing some kind of hippie dress that reached down to her ankles. It was, honest to God, made out of bright yellow cloth covered in purple tulips with neon-green leaves, and she had painted her lips fire engine red and rubbed purple eye shadow all over her eyelids.”

Is there anything else you’d like to mention about SHADE?
Yes. SHADE deals with some very serious subjects, so I include a warning in the book description. Here’s the Book Summary:

Finalist Award in the 2015 National Indie Excellence Book Awards, Young Adult Fiction Category.

Thanks to her offbeat mother, Shade’s full name is Galactic Shade Griffin. Having a name like that while being the new girl in school is pretty much catnip for bullies. The summer before Shade’s junior year of high school, her mother breaks up with yet another boyfriend and moves them once again to a new town.

This time, they move into a dilapidated old house where Shade has an entire attic bedroom to herself—at least until she discovers it’s haunted by the ghost of a teenaged boy named Brandon Yates. When Shade’s best friend goes missing, her life becomes even more complicated. With the help of Brandon who’s struggling with his own issues in the world beyond, Shade faces the question of whether or not she has what it takes to become a true hero.

Although this novel deals with a number of serious issues—drug and alcohol abuse, cutting, and disturbing world events—it’s primarily a novel about a teenaged girl finding out who she really is and that she’s capable of so much more than she ever thought possible.

SHADE is a YA Paranormal Mystery novel.

What would your friends say is your best quality?
My enthusiasm.

Are reader reviews important to you?
Yes, they really are.

What do you do when you don’t write?
I love hiking, traveling and photography. One of my favorite things to do is travel photography. I also love spending time with my husband and grown sons. Recently, I discovered the computer game, NO MAN’S SKY. (I have 10,000,000 credits in that game!) I also enjoy reading books and watching movies and TV
shows.

Tell us about your other books?
Altogether, I have 31 publications, mostly Science Fiction and Fantasy. That includes novels, novellas, novelettes, short stories and a couple of nonfiction books. My most recent books that I’m really proud of are my MUTATION Z Apocalyptic Zombie series and my SHADE series. When the SHADE series is complete, it will have six books.

If you could share one thing about yourself that you would like readers to know what would it be?
That it means a lot to me when readers enjoy my books and I love hearing from readers.

I really enjoyed this interview! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

I did! It was a pleasure getting to know you better!! Good luck with the new release.
