Blurb:

Free will is for both angels and demons too.



Sandra lacked the tools to identify a scorned soul when doctors handed her a perfect rosy bundle. She had no clue that her progeny, called Lilith, was actually a demon set on reclaiming her rightful companion. As years passed, the humble woman did her best to ignore doubts that crawled at her like the insects Lilith’s angelic lover obsessed over. Even then, she wanted to believe she was wrong and that Lilly was merely peculiar. But in the City of Eden, where all things seemed to begin and end, nothing was ever that simple.
In truth, Sandra knew. She couldn’t ignore it when her cunning spawn cut into adult life with a long resume of tools: Manipulation at the top, viciousness at the bottom, lies all over. Ordinary skills were unnecessary. Lilly could always find someone to do her bidding. A woman like Lilith didn’t need a helpful companion. She was nothing to the mortal she’d been created for. Neither was the woman, and Lilith’s nemesis, who’d come after her – Eve.

***


Adam, an athletic blond-haired graduate student studying the natural habitat of insects, had better things to do than listen to the brass words of a spoiled vixen like Lilly. This, of course, only enticed her. Lilith was willing to do whatever it took to earn her destiny. And, more importantly, this time, keep him in spite of Eve. But Adam had a few tricks of his own. He had learned to be cautious when dealing with temptation. Now, he merely sought a suitable helper. In the City of Eden, where all things are created, everything is possible.
There was only one thing no creator had ever accounted for: The vengeance of a determined temptress and the blurred turns of time to identify exactly who was who. 

Excerpt:


Eve smirked, reaching out her hand for Adam. Pulling on his
thick arm with her other hand, she couldn’t resist, “Come on Adam. This is just
too much. Tell me what it is! All this waiting is making me crazy.”
   She’d tossed the next step right back at him, ignoring his
suggestion to bring her glass. He knew she was wondering why they were headed
for the studio as they’d promised no working today and the gallery wasn’t even
open. Mortal man of the flesh or not, Adam wasn’t stupid. He picked up her
glass, balancing it between the Chateau Lafite bottle and servant-made
card in his one free hand.
   “I won’t Eva—he liked calling her that when it came to
serious matters simply because he could, and it made her twist her hair at the
ends—you’ll just have to wait until I show you.” They walked in giddy
anticipation to the entrance of the studio before Adam finally stopped. “Here, let’s
fill up our glasses for the coming toast, shall we?” he asked, finally holding
out the bottle and handing Eve her glass.
   When the red juice was spilled perfectly into their glasses,
they continued on toward the painting. Adam could almost feel the heat coming
off Eve’s body and certainly his own. It was time.
   “No way. Adam, no way,” she said, her mouth hanging
open. 
   “Yes Eva, I’m going to break my own rule and show you. It’s
time for you to meet yourself―the way I see you,” he left a dramatic pause to
linger before continuing and motioning toward the veiled painting. And then,
“I’ll show you…an angel.”
   With that, he pulled the sheet off the unfinished painting.
Eve sucked in a sharp stream of air. She held it as she
sipped at the myriad of colors on the thick canvas. She had no words as Adam
watched for her reaction. He could not resist soaking up every nuance of her
reaction: Her pink tongue wetting her lips, the way she moved with exaggerated
steps to get closer to it, how she tilted her head just enough to tell him she
was trying to make sense of it. Her blue eyes were wider than he’d ever seen
them.
    Finally, she released her breath with an audible gush.
    “Oh. My. God.” Eve’s free hand came up with delicate a
fingertip which she placed against her peach, lush lips. Now rooted in a small
“O,” she tilted her head again, before repeating her words. “Oh. My. God.”
   He had no idea what this moment would ultimately do to her –
changing their destinies forever. He did not know that angels and demons both
have free will…

 

 

 Author Interview:


~ Erin Lee ~
 
Who is your favorite hero of fiction? 
 
I actually don’t
have fictional heroes. To me, the real heroes are always nonfiction and
probably people not many others know about.
What is your favorite journey? 
 
My favorite travel
journey was to Australia. I spent a whole summer there while in college
interning at a newspaper. My “beat” was the Sydney Opera House.
Dogs or Cats? 
 
Dogs. We have four.
What do you most value in a friend? 
 
Loyalty and
honesty.
What quality do you most admire in a woman? 
 
An
independent strong attitude that says, “I’ve got this.”
Where do you get your greatest ideas for writing? 
 
By
day, I’m a court appointed child advocate and a family therapist. I hear and
see it all.
What is your Writing Routine?
 
I write long into the
night when everyone else is asleep. I only sleep about four hours a day.
Does writing energize or exhaust you? 
 
It energizes me.
To make the characters in my head come alive is like creating my own universe.
What kind of research do you do, and how long do you
spend researching before beginning a book?
 
 
Some of it comes from my everyday
life as a therapist, but when writing things outside that realm, I research a
lot. I have a Circus Freak Series where I actually took classes in high wire to
research for the book Contortionist.
What are you working on now? 
 
I’m continuing my work
on the Circus Freak Series and have lots of short stories and an EL George book
called Fix Me based on a true story of a child whose mother deliberating makes
her children ill, Soul Less, book 17 in the Escape from Reality Series, and The
Ghosts Who Raised Me, a paranormal YA book
What would your friends say is your best quality? 
 
My
ability to roll with the punches, get things done, and still enjoy life.
  
Are reader reviews important to you? 
 
Yes, very.
Whether they are good or bad, I learn from them and use the comments to improve
my next project. I love that strangers actually take the time to write reviews.
That is a priceless gift.
Are there any nuggets of wisdom you can impart to
aspiring writers?
 
 
Don’t give up. Every time you write, you improve. Join
writers’ groups, get honest editing from people who will tell you the truth,
and learn from your rejection letters. Someday, someone will see the value of
your words because only you can tell that story.

Blurb:

One angel’s redemption and the love that saved his soul…


A fallen angel desperately seeking redemption, a terminally ill girl hoping for a miracle she believes will never come, and a demon who will stop at nothing to keep them apart.
When Exodus and Niki’s worlds collide, they just might find what they’re looking for.
If they survive…
A heartfelt story of hope, forgiveness, and a love that won’t be denied.
 

Excerpt:

Chapter 1
Exodus stepped from
his cabin and climbed behind the wheel of his shiny black Jeep. He didn’t need
the vehicle to get where he wanted to go, but he couldn’t simply appear out of
thin air in the middle of Hazel’s Diner either.
He inserted the key in
the ignition, loving the feel of the power vibrating beneath him as the engine
sparked to life.
Humans were amazing
creatures, with their cool inventions and mouth-watering foods, he thought,
putting the Jeep in gear and easing out of his driveway. Yet, they weren’t
immortal. Their lives were a mere blip on the radar of time…and then they died.
Of course, some of
them were destined to have wings in the afterlife. Some…but not all.
If they had any idea
an angel lived in their midst, there would be hell to pay for Exodus. Not
everyone believed in angels, and the few that actually did would likely fear
the unknown.
Exodus thought about
the billions of humans walking the face of the Earth, with their thousands of
different religions and beliefs. Most of them rarely prayed anymore, and when
they did, it was usually when someone became sick.
“And where might you
be going on this fine Saturday morning?”
Exodus didn’t need to
look to know who had appeared in the seat next to him. He would recognize the
voice of Leviticus anywhere. “Hello, Levi. You do realize you’re going to get
caught one of these days, showing up here as you do? This is the third time
you’ve been here this month.”
“Keeping count, are
we?” The other angel lifted his hand to study his fingernails. “I only came to
warn you of Delia’s presence in the area.”
Stepping on the brake,
Exodus brought the Jeep to a stop and cranked his head in Levi’s direction.
“Delia’s here in Helen?”
“Not in Helen, per se,
but she is definitely on Earth. And I’d be willing to wager that she’ll be
heading this way as soon as she has her ducks in a proverbial row.”
Exodus turned his head
to stare at the mountains in the distance, his stomach tight with anger. “When
was she released?”
“A little over a week
ago.”
“Of course she would
be released near the time I’m due to be judged.” Exodus kept his gaze on those
mountains. “Well, if she shows up here, I’ll send her back to Hell without her
pretty little head.”
 Exodus had been forced to spend a thousand
years on Earth for his sins— sins that Delia had tempted him into. She’d
seduced him with her beauty and charm. And like an idiot, he’d fallen for her,
taking her to his bed without a thought for the consequences.
Naturally, his
fornication had been discovered soon thereafter, and he was cast from Heaven.
He’d been sent to Earth for a thousand years, where he would then be judged to
determine his eternal fate. He would either return to paradise completely
forgiven, or he would spend eternity in Hell alongside Delia.
Delia, of course, had
been ordered back to Hell from whence she’d come, to be chained there for a
thousand years.
“Why has Delia been
released?” Exodus met Levi’s gaze. “I mean, I have less than a month left until
I am to be judged. She was sentenced the same amount of time as me.”
Leviticus shrugged.
“My guess is she most likely bargained her way to freedom. Probably with the
promise of bringing ole Lucy your soul. You are one heck of a prize, you
realize.”
Exodus shook his head.
“It makes no sense. Why now? Why not a year ago? She’s cuttin’ it kind of
close, isn’t she? And Lucifer will never get my soul.”
“I hear you, but we
are talking about Delia. If she can tempt you to fall while you are still on
Earth, perhaps she feels that you would be sentenced to Hell and she would win
her freedom by being the one to make that happen.”
“Hell,” Exodus
repeated, his stomach clenching. “I have remained celibate for nearly a
millennium. And in that time, I have seen more change than I care to remember.
But I have yet to be tempted. No matter how beautiful they are or how alluring,
no one has come close to crawling into my bed. Nor will they.”
Levi touched him on
the shoulder. “Lust is a powerful emotion, X. Especially when fueled by the
powers of Hell. Delia has had nearly a thousand years to plan your demise. Just
be on your guard.”
Nausea rolled through
Exodus. He couldn’t imagine what Delia had in store for him. She’d already
caused him to fall from grace, to be cast out. “You’d better get back before
you are missed, my friend. Else you might find yourself building a cabin next
to mine on this mountain.”
“Not a chance.” Levi
chuckled a second before he vanished from view.

 

 

Chapter 2
Niki Stanton stared up
in dismay at Randal Johnson, the main cook at Hazel’s Diner. “What do you mean
the refrigerator is out?”
Randal shrugged a
beefy shoulder. “I mean it ain’t workin’. As in, it’s tore up.”
“Customers are
starting to come in.” Niki’s voice grew in volume with the panic that began to
set in. “The refrigerator can’t be broken.”
“I’m sorry, ma’am. I
know it’s not what you wanted to hear first thing this mornin’, but it ain’t
the end of the world. I put a call in to Carl up at Dover’s Appliances. He’ll
be down here directly. He already knows what the problem is, seeing how he’s fixed
it a bunch of times before. That fridge should have been replaced years ago.”
Niki pushed her
glasses up on her nose. “I’ll go turn the Closed sign on and let the customers
that have recently arrived know we won’t be feeding them today.”
Randal’s eyes grew
round in surprise. “There ain’t no need in doing all that, ma’am. The food is
still cold. My guess is that the fridge went out about an hour before I got
here. If Carl can get it up and running fairly soon, we probably won’t lose
anything in it.”
A spark of hope
flickered to life inside Niki. “I pray so, Randal. I really do.”
“I told your granny a
few years ago that we needed a new fridge,” Randal confessed. “But she was
bound and determined to hang on to this old thing.” He jerked his thumb in the
direction of the double-glass-door cooling unit. “I reckon she couldn’t really
afford to get a new one.”
Niki could relate. She
couldn’t afford a new one either. “Yes, well let me know when Carl arrives. I’m
going to run upstairs for a few minutes and take my medications.”
Worry sparked to life
in Randal’s eyes. “You okay, ma’am?”
“I’m fine,” Niki
hedged, glancing away from the pity she saw swimming in his gaze.
Everyone that worked
at Hazel’s seemed to be privy to Niki’s health problems. Hazel had never made
it a secret that her only granddaughter suffered from a debilitating heart
condition known as Atrial Septal Defect. Though it was fixable in some, Niki
hadn’t had such luck.
Niki had never been
allowed to play like other children, and she’d struggled through school due to
the numerous days she missed after her open-heart surgery.
She’d suffered another
heart surgery during her senior year in high school. The long pink scar down
her chest was a constant reminder of how close she’d come to losing her life.
“All right,” Randal
murmured, turning back to flip the sausage patties on the grill. “If you need
anything, just give a holler. I’ll let you know when Carl gets here.”
Niki nodded her thanks
and left the kitchen through the back door. She gripped the railing to the
stairs that led to her apartment above the diner and slowly ascended them.
She found herself
stopping about halfway up to catch her breath. Dizziness overtook her, and
spots began to dance through her vision.
Squeezing her eyes
shut, Niki leaned heavily against the railing, holding tightly to the
weather-damaged wood.
“Are you all right,
miss?”
The deep voice coming
from the bottom of the stairs could barely be heard over the rapid pulse
pounding in Niki’s ears.
She attempted to
answer, but her mouth didn’t seem to work. Her knees grew weaker the longer she
stood there fighting to breathe, until they eventually buckled beneath her.
Niki cried out as her
hands slipped helplessly from the railing and her body began to topple over
backward.
I’m going to die, she
thought in panic, unable to stop the inevitable catastrophe.
Strong arms came
around her, sweeping her off her feet and holding her tight.
“Easy there, little
one. I’ve got you.”
That deep voice again.
As much as Niki wanted to lift her head and thank the stranger for his quick
intervention, she couldn’t seem to do so.
“Do you live up here?”
Niki nodded against
his chest, unable to do much else. “I have…a…dog.”
Warmth and muscle
moved beneath her cheek where she rested against his shoulder. Even in her
weakened state, Niki couldn’t help but notice how clean the man smelled.
“My…dog… He…”
“Shhhhh,” the man
responded as if he weren’t the least bit concerned about the threat of a dog.
“It’ll be okay.”
The sound of her
apartment door creaking open reached her ears a moment before her savior
stepped over the threshold and closed the door behind him.
She could hear his
shoes trailing across her hardwood floor, yet no barking from her dog ensued.
That’s odd, Niki thought,
swallowing back a bout of nausea. Why wasn’t Lucky going berserk over the
stranger in her home?
And then her body
slowly descended until the soft mattress of her bed touched her back.
“Where is your phone?
I’ll call 911.”
“No,” Niki moaned,
nausea still rolling through her gut. “My pills…medicine cabinet…bathroom…”
Over the sound of her
rapid heartbeat, she could hear the man hurrying across the room.
He was back in less
than a minute. “I wasn’t sure which ones you needed, so I grabbed them all.” He
eased his arm behind her neck and gently lifted her head from the pillow.
“Here, have some water.”
The cool temperature
of the water made some of Niki’s nausea ebb. She reached for her pills.
“I’ll get them,” the
stranger rumbled, removing his arm and propping some pillows behind her head.
“Tell me which ones.”
Niki swallowed, taking
deep, calming breaths. Breathing techniques had always worked to hold back the
blackouts.
She somehow managed to
instruct the man on proper dosages, accepted the pills he handed her, and then
washed them down with the water she held.
He took the glass from
her fingers and placed it on the nightstand. “Are you sure you don’t want me to
call an ambulance?”
Niki shook her head,
forcing her eyes open a crack. There, sitting on the side of her bed was the
most beautiful man she’d ever seen in her lifetime. And Lucky sat near his
feet, calm and relaxed like he’d known the man all his life.
“No,” she croaked,
instantly embarrassed to be caught in such a state by someone as perfect as the
man perched next to her.
Not only was she sick
and weak, but her hair was twisted on top of her head, and her forehead had
broken out into a sweat with the presence of the nausea. “I just need a
minute.”
“Are you sure? You
look awfully pale.”
A knock sounded on the
door before Niki could form a response.
Her beautiful savior
lifted his eyebrows in question. “Want me to get that?”
Niki wanted to tell
him no, but she couldn’t. Randal had put in a call to Carl, and he was due to
arrive at any moment. “Please,” was all she said.
The man got up,
sauntered toward the door with Lucky tight on his heels, and opened the door.
Ellen Martin’s voice
floated into the room, full of surprise and more than a little flirtation.
“Well, hello, Mr. Brooks. What are you doing up here?”
Lucky growled low in
his throat.
“Oh goodness,” Ellen
gasped. “Does that thing bite?”
The deep voice of
Niki’s savior reverberated throughout the room. “I’m not sure, Miss Martin. May
I help you with something?”
It wasn’t lost on Niki
that Ellen knew the tall man’s name or that he knew hers as well. Of course, it
wasn’t surprising. Ellen was a beautiful girl, after all. A bit too flirtatious
in Niki’s opinion, but beautiful nonetheless.
Where Niki had brown
curly hair, green eyes, and a stick-thin body, Ellen had platinum-blonde hair,
luminous blue eyes, and a figure any woman would envy.
On more than one
occasion, Niki had heard the blonde bragging about being homecoming queen, prom
queen, and winning several pageants, including Miss Helen two years in a row.
Niki had never even
attended a prom. Not that she wouldn’t have loved to, but no one had asked her.
She couldn’t blame them, really. She’d been sickly all through school and spent
most of her senior year being tutored at home due to her second open-heart
surgery.
Ellen cleared her
throat, bringing Niki out of her musing. “I just came to let Miss Stanton know
that Carl is here to fix the refrigerator. And he ain’t one for waiting.”
Niki took another
drink of the water, then set the glass on her nightstand, eased her feet over
the side of the bed, and glanced in Ellen’s direction. “Tell Carl that I’ll be
right down.”
Ellen nodded, quickly
dismissed Niki, and smiled up at Mr. Brooks. “Will you be eating with us this
morning then?”
“We’ll see,” he
murmured, closing the door without further explanation.
He then turned to face
Niki. “Perhaps you shouldn’t get up so soon. You nearly took a spill down the
stairs a few minutes ago.”
More than a little
embarrassed that he’d witnessed her near-fall, Niki adjusted her glasses and
pushed to her feet. “I’ll be fine in a moment. Dizzy spells are nothing new to
me.”
Speaking of dizzy
spells, another one washed over her just then, forcing her to grab on to the
headboard for support.
Mr. Brooks was
instantly at her side. “Easy there, Miss Stanton. Maybe you should lie back
down. The refrigerator can wait.”
“It can’t wait. And
please call me Niki.” Where had that come from?
His whiskey-colored
gaze softened. “Okay, Niki. My name is Exodus, but my friends call me X.”
Niki blinked. “Exodus,
as in the biblical Exodus?”
His lips twitched. “I
get that a lot. Which is why I prefer to be called X.”
“Yeah, like that has less
shock factor.”
His mouth broke into a
full-on smile, nearly buckling Niki’s knees. If she thought him beautiful
before, he was downright breathtaking when he smiled. And that wonderful scent
she’d noticed when he’d carried her reached her nose once again. God, but he
smelled good.
His dark brown hair
was pulled back into a ponytail at the base of his neck. Even with the shades
pulled in her apartment, Niki could see the auburn streaks running through its
length.
Her gaze lowered to
the black T-shirt stretched across his muscular chest and further still to his
faded jeans and shit-kicker boots before returning to his whiskey-colored eyes.
“Thank you for your help, X. I don’t know what I would’ve done had you not
shown up when you did.”
Then a thought struck
her. “What were you doing behind the diner?”
He shrugged a broad
shoulder. “I normally park around back. It’s a lot less congested on that side
of the building. Especially in the mornings.”
“Makes sense.” She
could feel her heart rate slowing to normal as the medication began to kick in.
“I appreciate your help, Mister—”
“X, please.”
“Yes, well, I
appreciate everything, X, but my medication is beginning to work. I can take it
from here.”
His eyes twinkled.
“Are you throwing me out?”
“I guess I am,” Niki
returned with a nervous chuckle. “There’s only one man in town that can fix
that refrigerator, and that’s Carl. If he leaves before I get down there, I’m
up the creek without a paddle.”
X nodded and moved
toward the door. “I don’t mind waiting. I feel like I should at least walk you
down.”
If there was one thing
Niki hated more than anything in the world, it was pity. She’d dealt with
people feeling sorry for her her entire life. “I can manage,” she shot back a
bit stiffer than she’d intended.
His head tilted
slightly, and a strange look skated across his face. “If you’re sure.”
“I am.”
“Very well then.” He
departed without another word.

Blurb:
Generations ago, he
died for her. Now, it’s her turn.
 
Pride kept them from looking at one another, but their
bodies could not lie. Recognition lived in their souls, rekindling memories of
passion, love, betrayal….and death.
 
Apache Elder Aidan Stringfellow, V, is a very wealthy man
with one wish – to free his only son, the brilliant, yet abrasive David, from
the curse that has plagued his family for generations.  When his controversial plan for a cure is
revealed, shock and disbelief are only the beginning, for David has deadly, yet
beguiling secrets of his own.
 
Choosing to honor Aidan’s wishes, David and Katala
unwittingly awaken an ancient evil desperate to lay claim to the last-born
Stringfellow – David. The tumultuous consequences of a vengeful pact spanning
generations, defies time, tradition, and death itself.
 
Katala finds herself falling in love with a man whose gaze
and touch ignite long-forgotten passion, propelling her to fight for his life.
She unearths one devastating clue after another on her winding journey toward
the truth, but unseen forces escalate their attack as truth collides with myth.
Clinging desperately to her own sanity, she must find a way to reconcile the
two, for even her own identity comes into question. Trust no one. Not even
David.
 
Time is running out. Promises will be kept, and if the devil
has his way, souls will be claimed.
Excerpt:



David hit the button to start his playlist, then
turned to face Katala. His speech was halting, but deliberate. “What do you
need me to do before we move forward with this agreement?” 
“Where did that come from all of a sudden? A moment
ago, we were talking about work.”
Following the wedding, they used most of their extra time
moving into a new free-standing flat. Katala had actually taken a six-week
leave from work, but cried the night before she had to return. Now, she sat
barefoot on the sofa in a long pink cotton gown.
“David, I don’t want to talk about that right now. I
hate the way you change the subject in midstream like that. I – I’d just like
to know you better. You know, feel more comfortable with you. I don’t want to
just have sex because we’re supposed to.”
David’s gaze followed her as she moved closer to him.
“What do you need to know?” he asked.
She gave a short laugh. She had to admit, she liked
his straightforward manner. Despite her initial distrust, she was beginning to
change her mind. One thing she realized she did not have to worry about with
him was lies. He was so used to getting his way there was absolutely no guile
in him. He simply said ‘I want this or that’, and people did whatever he
wanted. She never doubted she would be any different. Honestly, he lit a fire
inside her she’d never felt before, but she refused to give in just yet.
“David, I want to know how you feel, what you think,
what’s important to you. You know – things that I’m sure most married couples
know about each other. Nothing out of the ordinary.”
He smiled. “How about I don’t like waiting. Is that
enough about how I feel and what I think?”

 



Author Interview:


~ Dariel Raye ~
 
Why do you write?
I write for two main reasons: 
1. Reading has always been
one of my favorite things, and I feel gratitude towards authors who offer an
escape from the difficulties of real life. I strive to do the same, and in
writing, I manage to escape as well.
2. Human and animal rights. Animals and their welfare
play a prominent role in my stories, and I am driven to subtly shed light on
the dearth of Black and interracial female heroines as standards of beauty and
desirability. Too often, people from other cultures don’t realize the lack and
the resulting negative impact erasure and subsequent neglect have on us as
women.
What genre does most of your work fall under?
Urban fantasy/ paranormal romance. I’m also collaborating
on a mystery with Muffy Wilson, and after its release I’m working on a
psy-thriller/suspense with romantic elements to be released next year.
Why did you choose that genre?
Feels like home to me. These sub-genres allow my
imagination complete freedom, and I can better offer the sense of escape that
I’m seeking.
What are some of the drawbacks of this genre?
There are so many creative authors, thinking of something
that hasn’t been done to death can be challenging.
What are some of the benefits?
 
In some ways, the drawbacks are the benefits as well;
i.e., accepting the challenge to think outside the box and create yet another
world for readers to escape to is exhilarating. I enjoy taking real people who
have always considered themselves to be ordinary, and placing them in extraordinary,
supernatural situations and environments. It adds even more fire when the
“ordinary” person develops strong feelings for a paranormal being, or in some
instances finds that they, themselves possess exceptional abilities.
How does your work contribute to the genre?
 
I write interracial/multicultural characters who are not
only dealing with the main plots, romance, and conflict, but there’s always a
subplot dealing with a real-life issue such as animal cruelty, human rights
issues, and racism. The subplots don’t slap readers in the face and snap them
away from their escape, but I like to think they shed light on issues that
might not have been considered in the same way before.
  
What would the title of your life story be? And why?
Driven. I’ve always felt driven to do something with the
gifts God has given me. Now, managing chronic illness along with daily pain and
numerous surgical procedures, has added a level of urgency because I’m
constantly faced with my own mortality.
Besides writing, what other creative passions do you
have?
Music and art. I also love dance, but with my tomboy
roots, I’m about as graceful as a donkey.
Which quote best sums up your writing style?
 
“Strong heroines, badass heroes, fast-paced, action
packed…lots of twists and turns…filled with romance, suspense, and drama…”
Totally Addicted 2 Reading
Tell us about your background and education?
 
My degrees are in music (piano and vocal performance), counseling
psychology (mental health, substance abuse, and career decisions), and I have
all but dissertation (ABD due to illness) towards my Ph.D. Along the way, I’ve
taught every academic subject, private piano and voice lessons, and worked from
child support investigations to mental health and substance abuse therapy to
band director and college career counselor. It’s been an interesting journey so
far.
Which are your three favorites?
 
Whichever story I’m writing at the moment. Right now, it
would have to be “Devil’s Claim,” from the “Wings of the Wicked” boxed set,
“Dangerous Beauty, Sexy Beast,” and “Dark Opius,” a Cursed Angel story from the
Charmed Legacy.
What writing advice would you give to yourself prior to
completing your first novel?
Write at least 2 books of an entire series before
releasing the first one, then release them 2-months apart. That way, by the
time people start to forget, there’s another one in the wind. Wish I’d taken
that advice.

Author Interview:
 
~ Muffy Wilson ~
 
Who is Muffy Wilson in her own words?


I am a wife, mother, daughter and sister first and an author of provocative romance about love, sex, hope and passion second. I was born in Texas to traditional parents. With two older brothers. I was the youngest, the family “princess,” indulged and pampered. My father was a career Colonel and pilot in the U.S. Air Force which required our family to travel extensively. I spent my formative years in Europe and ‘came of age’ in France (a state of affairs that gave my father much cause for concern one loooong summer on the Italian Riviera!) which forged my joie de vivre and love for books, writing and education. I liked Aldo a lot then too.
What is one thing you would like the world to remember you for?


I am a simple person. I would like to be remembered as a good person, loving wife and nurturing mother. I never met a stranger nor turned anyone away that needed help. And I have tried hard to learn from my mistakes but I am not always successful in that endeavor!
 
What got you into writing?


An old boyfriend from high school.  We reconnected after all these years and he writes self-help real estate books. And I was selling real estate on the side, so we still had a lot in common. That said, I took a significant departure from self-help to provocative and paranormal romance.
 
Are you a full-time author or do you have a day job as well, and if so, what do you do?
When I first started writing fiction in 2010, I was still working (I was a Regional Director for IBM, owned a resort on Washington Island, Wisconsin, and have been a General Manager for high end retail furniture) but I have since retired and devote most of my free time to writing, my family, my pups and anything that will keep me from doing any housework!!
 
Where do you get your greatest ideas for writing?


My story lines come my life and from ordinary people: watching them, listening to them, talking to them about dreams, romance, passions ~ about their regrets and when they lost their heart, their virginity…a loved one. And then, somehow magically, I’ll have a dream on one of those many nights I cannot sleep and a story title will come to me. It always starts with the title for me. Always. That’s the piece that takes root, grabs me and blossoms.
 
What is your ‘Writing Routine’, if any?


I sit in the living room with my husband, when he does his crossword puzzles, and I write. And write. And write. His questions about clues and comments about the news or a movie often go unanswered when I am in the “zone”.
Tell us a saucy/intimate/personal story about yourself.


Well, I was almost 36 when I got married. A child of the 60’s anf 70’s, I had a very free way of thinking about men. I thought men were healthy–at least for me. Since I worked in a man’s business world, I lived my life much as men do when it comes to romance. And when I met the man that would steal my heart, I never looked back.
What are your Top (10?) Writing Tips? Writing Advice?


  1. Never start with a prologue or the weather, but start.
  2. Don’t worry if your first draft is any good; it won’t be. just start.
  3. Write every day, at the same time for the same length of time. Self-disciple is only a routine. But you gotta start…So start.
  4. Write what you would like to read, from your heart. And start.
  5. Allow yourself to change your mind. Change is a reflection of inspiration. A new perspective. But start.
  6. Name your work immediately and give it life, honor, position, credibility, purpose. You’ve started!
  7. Keep notes of anything favorite, interesting, or inspiring: names, titles, phrases, descriptions, music.
  8. Each new voice requires a new paragraph. If you must, only use “said”. Anything else is “fluff” wastes ink pretentiously. I’m still learning that one! Get started!
  9. Be kind to yourself. Your work may not be great or Nobel material, but it is yours. Accept that your voice will change and evolve, but it is still yours. Start!
  10. There is no secret to writing. But there is an enemy — procrastination. Just start… Always start.

Chasing Fate

Blurb:

A young psychic named Renee inherits her grandmother’s terrifying powers and summons two hot (and very naked) angels to help her save the world. Paired up with her ex-boyfriend turned vampire, she’s in for a hell of a ride.
Every thousand years the cycle of death comes to claim the three major realms: Earth, heaven, and hell. It’s her turn to chase fate and stop the cycle from devouring her world, bringing heaven and hell down with it.

When the echoes of calamity begin to take form and destroy her beloved Fortune Street, she’ll have to race against the clock to stop her new vision from coming to fruition. Earth in ashes and heaven and hell collapsed in a ball of flames.

Edwin and Devon aren’t the kind of angels she’d expected to conjure with her new gifts for such a monumental task. With Devon’s constant flirting, and Edwin’s sexy brooding, and Jeffery’s distracting fangs, she’ll have to hope they’re more useful than they are distracting in the game of chasing fate.



Author Interview:

J.R. Thorn ~
 
If you could choose
to be a character in a book, who would it be?
Elena from the Guildhunter Series by Nalini Singh. Nalini’s
books are a huge inspiration for me and Elena gets to be with the kick-ass
Raphael! Plus, she’s pretty kick-ass herself.
Dogs or Cats?
I grew up with a lot of dogs, but now I just own cats.
They’re low maintenance, until they’re not low maintenance haha!
What do you most
value in a friend?
Loyalty and the understanding that I lead a busy life. Some
of my best friends I only see twice a year, and I am blessed they’re so
understanding of that! However I talk to my friends every day through online
chats.
How long on average
does it take you to write a book?
If I’m being disciplined, it only takes me a couple of
weeks. I have multiple pen names so by now I’ve gotten pretty good at it!
Having a streamlined process makes all the difference.
Are reader reviews
important to you?
Of course! Even more so I want honest reviews. The reviews
are for other readers to see if they might like my books. If a reader doesn’t
like something, I want them to say so! If they love something, they should say
that too!
What do you do when
you don’t write?
Let’s see, aside from the day job of course I read, watch
Vampire Diaries, play video games with the husband, and relax with a beer! (I
know, not lady-like, but I enjoy a good beer!)
If you could share
one thing about yourself that you would like readers to know what would it be?
I was in a long-distance relationship with my husband for 10
years and madly in love the whole time, and now happily married, so when I
write about reverse harem, it’s just fantasy. I believe in loyal, monogamous
relationships and prefer true-love novels when reading, but reverse harem is
seriously a lot of fun lol.
What are your Top
Writing Tips?
Make a schedule and read in your genre! Deadlines seem to
help me, and reading in my genre keeps me on my game.
Are there any nuggets
of wisdom you can impart to aspiring writers?
Join a critique group and learn the craft before getting
into writing. The readers deserve your best. Once you’re past that stage, just
dive right in and join Facebook groups with authors who are more successful
than you. Learn from them!
Finally, what are we
likely to find in YOUR nightstand?

 

 

A chart where I document how many sit-ups I do before bed,
an old phone to play audiobooks, my kindle, and a legit ninja star because you
never know when you’ll need one hahaha.

Blurb:

We all fall down




Seri’s brother was taken by their enemies. Now he’s back and they are seizing their birthright. Good and bad. If they can survive.

Excerpt:


An explosion rocked the inner city, shattering brick and stone. Debris
fell like rain. Dust and smoke coated the morning sun in darkness. The echo of
the blast rang in the air and then faded to silence. One minute. Two. Then a
second detonation followed. And another, until the sounds of bombs and falling
rock drowned out everything else.
Rael shoveled down his breakfast standing up in the cafeteria when the
first explosion hit. Food flew. Chairs overturned. The long tables skidded
across the floor into the wall and Rael slid right along with them. The floor
still swayed when he managed to pick himself up. His ears buzzed and a headache
spread across his forehead. He tasted copper as he balanced on his clawed toes,
dark wings tucked tight to his back to protect them from falling glass. With a
quick glance, he took stock of his surroundings and the destruction around him.
“Seri!”
His eight-year-old sister had trailed him to the dining hall this
morning, begging to go to training with him. Where was she? Panic seized him as
he flipped tables and screamed her name again and again. His gut churned.
Please, don’t let her be hurt. Not Seri.
It felt like a lifetime before he saw her huddled under one of the
fallen tables. Her golden wings spread out behind her along the wall, the adult
feathers just coming in on the underside, dark against the light. Her hands
covered her ears and tears streaked her face as she rocked in the corner. He
saw no injuries, no blood. He let out the breath he’d been holding then ran
over and grabbed her hand. “Come on.”
She rubbed her nose along her sleeve, tugging backward. “No. No,
it isn’t safe.”
 “Seri, come on now. We don’t have time for this. I got you.
I would never let anything hurt you.” He leaned forward and bumped his
head against hers, cooing lightly until she relaxed enough to let him pull her
from her shelter. Her small hand gripped his in a death lock as he guided her
toward the hallway.
Dozens of fighters decked out in light chainmail with bows strung
across their backs marched past toward the entrance. He ached to join the fight
but at sixteen, he was still too young.
He couldn’t believe they were under attack. The idea of it boggled his
mind. His people, the Avaresh lived in the Forge, a city thousands of feet
aloft, in a series of towers located high in the Adak Mountains. Sheer
isolation kept them safe. Till today. Luckily, the Council always planned for
every contingency given the war-like nature of their land-dwelling neighbors.
The people practiced biannual evacuation drills, everyone assigned a task. His
duty was the protection of the children.
Rael sighed and peered down at Seri as she moved closer and grabbed
his pants.
“What’s going on Rael?” she asked in a small voice. Her eyes
were bloodshot, her nose red. She had some tear stains on her leather and her
hair was askew, thin pink feathery braids pulled out from her ponytail. His
heart twisted. She was so damn cute. So innocent.
“I don’t know, but you know what we have to do right?” He
set her against the wall, went to one knee, and tugged on a loose braid.
She puffed up her chest and replied. “We need to get to the
tunnels and hide with the supplies.”
“That’s right. We need to get to the tunnels. Are you
ready?” He ran his finger down her nose then squished the tip. She giggled
just as he intended and nodded certain that he would see her to safety. Her
little hand relaxed in his.
     He stood and cursed his tardiness. He’d worn
his leather gear, but had forgotten his blades. The training depot had weapons
available so he hadn’t gone back when he realized. He went for food instead. So
stupid. No one could have planned for this to happen, but he knew better. He
was an Elite warrior, or well, he would be soon. He should’ve been armed.
Lands. His jaw clenched, but he forced himself to relax and focus. His job was
Seri. They needed to get to the tunnels.

 

 

He straightened and towed Seri behind him, dodging more guards going
the other way while he moved toward the center of town. Another blast pitched
them against the wall. His wings spread out protecting Seri, dark feathers
stark against the white walls. He clenched his hands to stop their shaking as
he righted them both and they continued on their way.

About the Author:


Colleen S. Myers was raised in a large catholic family in
the outskirts of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she grew up on Harlequin teen
romances and stories from her mother’s days as a paramedic. She went on to
attend Allegheny College majoring in Biology and English.

After college, Colleen spent a year in service in the
Americorp giving back to the community at a local Pittsburgh Women Infants and
Children Clinic (WICC) before attending Kirksville College of Osteopathic
Medicine on a military scholarship.
Upon completing medical school, Colleen attended residency
at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland and was on base in Washington, DC during
9/11. She earned three meritorious service awards from the military. After
serving seven years of active duty, she promptly landed a position at the VA to
provide fellow veterans with optimum medical care. Still an avid fan of
romances into adulthood, her love of the genre inspired her to hone her craft
as a writer, focusing on contemporary romance and science fiction. Her
background in medicine and the military provides an inspiring layer of creative
realism to her stories and characters.
Her first book, Must Remember, the first book in the Solum
series, is published by Champagne Press. The sequel, Can’t Forget, is the
recipient of the 2015 RWA New England Readers Award.
Colleen currently resides in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with
her family, and spends her spare time writing. She is also working on a new
contemporary romance.

Blurb:

She’ll move heaven and earth to save her only family.




She’ll move heaven and earth to save her only family.

On Brigitta Holtzer’s 21st birthday, her father—one of the greatest witches of his generation—falls mysteriously, violently ill. To save him, Gitta must travel to the depths of hell accompanied only by a sexy, irritable vampire… named Scott.

To secure her father’s salvation, Gitta must risk her very soul and give up her freedom—not to mention expose herself to the darkness of her father’s hidden world, and the inkiest corners of her own psyche.

Nothing remains unbroken in FRAGILE MAGICK.

Author Interview:

Heather Marie Adkins ~
What is
your greatest fear?

Death. I’m absolutely terrified of death. It started when I was little – I
would have these horrible panic attacks about dying being nothingness and just
not existing. Those continued well into my twenties, and when I finally came to
terms with my fear, my stepdad died by suicide, which sent me into another
existential dread crisis. It’s a debilitating fear.

Who or
what has been the greatest love of your life?
Writing will always be the greatest love of my
life. When I met my husband ten years ago, I told him up front – I will always
put my writing first. He knew before we ever fell in love that writing was the
OG for me.
Which
book have you read the most in your lifetime?
The entire Harry Potter series. I make it a
point to re-read it every year or two. It balances me, takes me back to my
roots.

 Dogs or
Cats?
Cats. I have 38 of them. (Not an
exaggeration.) I’m a volunteer with a local cat rescue. We do monthly
Trap-Neuter-Return clinics, and also pull cats from rural shelters to re-home.
What do
you most value in a friend?
Loyalty and reliability. We live in a world
full of fake people doing shitty things to one another, dropping the ball on
the responsibilities that don’t benefit them. The friends most important in my
life value being loyal to me and I to them, as well as being the kind of person
who will actually do exactly what they promise to do. I don’t do fake, I don’t
do two-faced, I don’t do egos. Anybody with those traits can stay far away from
my inner circle.
What
quality do you most admire in a woman?
Independence. I love my husband, but my sun
doesn’t rise and set on his existence. As it shouldn’t, because I am my own
woman with my own business, my own hopes, my own dreams and aspirations. My
husband and I are a team, but he is not everything that makes me. I hate seeing
women who base their entire existence around the man in their life. I believe
the patriarchal society pushes women to view men as their lord and savior, and
it makes me sick to my stomach. We should ALWAYS be our own lord and savior
first. The love of our life is our consort, not our god.
What do
you do as a hobby?
My bestie Alex Owens and I just started our
own paranormal podcast called Spirits & Spells. We’re both obsessed with
podcasts (particularly the paranormal kind) and decided to dip our toes in the
waters. It’s A LOT of research up front, but it’s also a lot of fun. If I’m not
writing or doing other work (of which there are MANY responsibilities), I’m
researching for the podcast or designing book covers.
What
were some of the challenges you faced on the road to publication?
My biggest challenge has been not doing things
the right way. I leapt into publishing with the mentality that I could throw a
book up online and watch the fans come running in. And that’s not how it works.
If you don’t market yourself properly, and if you don’t finish the series you
start, it’s a career killer. I’ve begun the process this year of recalculating
my career for a better – and actually successful – relaunch.
Finally,
what are we likely to find in YOUR nightstand?
A half-finished margarita from the night before,
a stylus I use to write on my phone in bed at night, a dog-eared book that’s
taking me months to finish reading, and at least two cats knocking all that
stuff off.

About the Author:


Heather Marie Adkins writes too much but still too little. She also has too many cats, not enough tequila, and a torrid love affair with procrastination.


Heather is the author of more than thirty paranormal romance and urban fantasy titles. She resides in southern Indiana with a sarcastic cop who is entirely too dependent on puns.

When she’s not plotting her next story or herding felines, she’s researching the weird, witchy, and woefully spectral for Spirits & Spells Podcast. Find out more about her at heathermarieadkins.com.

Forbidden Hallow

Blurb:
A demon hunter ventures into enemy territory—and falls for the wrong woman.


Against his better judgment, Jesse Hallow follows a demon to Everdark, smack in the middle of Di Fiore territory. The Di Fiore shifters are the Hallow hunters’ sworn enemies, but instead of getting the hell out of town, Jesse stays for the local Summer Solstice festival—where he ends up falling fast and hard for vibrant, mysterious Ana.

Ana Flowers senses she should stay away from Jesse. But he seems to see the real woman underneath her delicate appearance and bohemian hippie outfits, and she’s never had that before. There’s something about the fierce hunter that draws her in although she knows he could be the death of her.

Together, they embark on a dangerous hunt to stop the bloodthirsty creature as it leaves a trail of destruction in its wake. But their own dark secrets might just turn out to be the gravest threat, not only to their blossoming love—but also to both their lives.

Excerpt:

 
   Dry-mouthed, Ana woke to the chirping of birds
outside her windowsill. Heat flared across her cheeks as she thought back on
how thoroughly Jesse had loved her only hours ago. Unfortunately, he’d received
a phone call soon after and had to return to his room to use the notebook he’d
left there. She’d let him go reluctantly.
   Padding barefoot across the cold tiles of her
kitchen, she rolled his name around her mouth. Jesse Hannover. She couldn’t
wait until she saw him again later that day. But the longer she repeated his
name, the more it started to ring a bell, and a sudden coldness crept through
her veins, dampening her good mood.
   Where had she heard the name Hannover before?
   Hesitating only for the briefest of moments,
she called her brother, Alessio, the only one of her family she could really
trust. How she wished he wasn’t half a world away in China.
   He answered on the first ring. “Hey, little
Adriana.”
   She rolled her eyes. He knew exactly how she
hated to be called by her full name. “Hey, yourself. I know you’re busy, but do
you have a moment for me?”
   “Always. Shoot.”
   “Does the name Jesse Hannover ring a bell for
you?”
   “Good question. It sounds familiar, but I
don’t know why. Why are you asking?”
   Telling her brother that she just slept with a
Jesse Hannover was out of the question. “I came across the name on social media
and couldn’t stop thinking about it.”
   “Wait a sec. I’ll check the database.”
   Pacing the floor, Ana held on. Alessio had
access to a database that listed anybody associated with supernatural
activities.
   Her brother cursed through the line. “You were
right. Hannover is one of the Hallows fake identities. The youngest Hallow’s
name is Jesse.” He groaned over the line. “Whatever you do, stay the hell away
from him. As far as you possibly can. I don’t have to tell you what the Hallows
are capable of, right?”
   Her head started spinning, and cold sweat
covered her forearms. “No. Thanks for checking. I need to go.”
   Ana ended the call and sank down on her bed.
The Hallows were rumored to be merciless, brutal slayers who eliminated
everything supernatural and anyone associated with it, no matter if they were good
or evil.
   She cradled her head in her hands. She’d just
exposed Darren to Jesse, before inviting the Hallow into her home and spending
the night with him. The best night of her life.
If he found out to what extent she was
involved with supernaturals, he’d go after her, too. And she wouldn’t be the
first of her family to die by the hand of a Hallow.
