The year is 1804 and Lady Olivia Sophia Allen Townsend has just turned 20 years old. She is beautiful, well-educated and considered by some in polite society to be far too eccentric for her own good. When Olivia was younger, she was very open about her gift. She is not only able to see spirits, but she can talk to them as well. Being shunned by her peers has caused Olivia to turn her back on those who need her the most - spirits caught between two worlds. That is until her best friend Lilly Collins comes to her in the middle of the night and asks for her help. Lilly can’t remember what happened to her and finds herself in need of Olivia’s unique gifts.

Olivia’s younger sister, Coco, is also gifted with a unique set of skills - she can touch someone and know things about them that they would sometimes prefer to keep hidden.

Brody and Quinton Beaumont are fine-looking, eligible, southern gentlemen, and heirs to a successful cotton empire. They also happen to be twins, hiding a deep dark secret.

Olivia, who has never been drawn to any man, feels an undeniable connection to Brody Beaumont, but first, she must figure out if she can trust him, and if he or his twin brother Quinton had anything to do with Lilly’s death. 




Lara's Story 
by by Diane Merril Wigginton 
Genre: Historical Romance 


SHATTERED BY HEARTBREAK 

“When a heart breaks, it does not break evenly, cleaving in half exactly down the middle.” 

Surrounded by her large, boisterous family in 1840s Ireland, Lara Flannigan has never known anything but love and belonging—until the day tragedy strikes, leaving her abandoned and forced into indentured servitude. 

REMADE IN A NEW WORLD. 

Just when all hope seems lost, Lara is discovered by a childless American couple, visiting Ireland to aid in the famine-relief effort. With barely a chance to look back, she’s swept away to a bustling new continent—and a dizzying new reality. One of petticoats, opulent townhouses, and the cold reaches of Philadelphia high society. Desperate for a future, Lara works tirelessly to fit into her new life... while still haunted by a past that won’t let her go. Set in a fascinating historical period, Lara’s Story is a gripping young adult novel that explores the strength of the human spirit and the power of forgiveness to heal a broken heart. 






I was born in Riverside, California in 1963. My family and I moved to San Diego when I was 7 and I never looked back. I had a very rich life growing up with my brother, David, and best friend Gigi. I married my husband, David in 1998 and we lived in Encinitas, California for a couple of years before moving to Herald, California in 2001. We have a blended family of 6 kids and truly enjoyed the rural life on a 5 1/2 acre ranch, 45 minutes south of Sacramento. I love writing and creating stories that are different from and intriguing. I like to give my readers a little something extra and unexpected. I have always wanted to be a published author, but the timing never seemed right. Raising a family and working fulltime always took precedence. Shortly after I turned 50 I decided that if I continued to put off my dreams, the time would never be right. So, with an idea in my head, I sat down and began writing. I wanted there to be no regrets in my life. What resulted was a historical romance, filled with adventure, suspense, and an underlying epic love story weaved in for good measure and "Angelina's Secret" was born. I loved everything about the process of writing and there are currently three books in "The Jeweled Dagger Series." I am very excited about the future and thrilled to be writing fulltime now since I retired from my "9 to 5," job at the end of April 2017. My husband retired shortly after me and our youngest was a sophomore in college so we decided that it was time that we had an adventure of our own. We made the move to Kalispell, Montana and the adventures just seem to happen every day. We go for hikes in our own backyard or take off for Glacier National Forest on a whim. We currently have seven grandkids, with another one due this August 2018. Being "Grandma and Grandpa" is the icing on the cake for us. I count my blessings every day because I know how lucky I am. Life is good and now I can devote my days to doing what I really love, and that is writing and creating more stories.

by Donald Firesmith 
Genre: YA/MG Urban Fantasy 


Matt's life changes forever when a family of druids moves into the dilapidated Victorian mansion next door. The story of an unlikely friendship, the clash of two completely different cultures, secret magic, and a search for the lost Hawthorne treasure. 

Fifteen-year-old Matt Mitchell was having the worst summer imaginable. Matt’s misery started when a drunk driver killed his mother. Then his father moved him and his twin sister to the small town of Hawthorne in rural Indiana, as far as his grieving father could take from the ocean that Matt's mother had loved. At the new high school, three bullies are determined to make Matt miserable. And to top it off, Matt learns that the recluse who lives in the 'haunted house" next door is none other than Old Lady Hawthorne, the town’s infamous witch and murderer. Matt’s terrible summer is turning into an awful autumn when something quite unexpected happens. Old Lady Hawthorne’s niece and her three children arrive, and Matt meets Gerallt. 




Book Trailer 







A geek by day, Donald Firesmith works as a system and software engineer helping the US Government acquire large, complex software-intensive systems. In this guise, he has authored seven technical books, written numerous software- and system-related articles and papers, and spoken at more conferences than he can possibly remember. He's also proud to have been named a Distinguished Engineer by the Association of Computing Machinery, although his pride is tempered somewhat by his fear that the term "distinguished" makes him sound like a graybeard academic rather than an active engineer whose beard is still slightly more red than gray.

By night and on weekends, his alter ego writes modern paranormal fantasy, apocalyptic science fiction, action and adventure novels and relaxes by handcrafting magic wands from various magical woods and mystical gemstones. His first foray into fiction is the book Magical Wands: A Cornucopia of Wand Lore written under the pen name Wolfrick Ignatius Feuerschmied. He lives in Crafton, Pennsylvania with his wife Becky, and his son Dane, and varying numbers of dogs, cats, and birds.

SHAKESPEARE BURNING & Giveaway


Shakespeare Burning
by Charisse Moritz

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: YA Romance, (mature)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

He’s the boy who wants to disappear.

One mistake and seventeen-year-old Shake LeCasse lost everything. Now there’s no going back and no way to move forward. The once-popular Varsity hockey captain is living in the basement of a grandmother he barely knows, ditching school, avoiding friends and working hard on self-destruction.

She’s the girl nobody sees.

Cleo Lee survives however she can. Lie, cheat, steal, whatever it takes, and saving Mr. Popular isn’t part of the plan. Telling him the truth about the night that destroyed his life is downright dangerous. She needs to keep quiet, be smart and let the guy she’s been half in love with since middle school throw away a future she’d do anything to have. Too bad she sucks at playing it safe.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPTS:


I’ve had an epiphany:

My head whips forward. I slap my hands against the dash. The seatbelt grabs me, throws me back and something in my spine pops.

“Doing good,” I manage.

Cleo cuts a glare my way. Her hands sit precisely at ten and two. She can barely see over the wheel. If looks could maim, I’d be bleeding from every orifice.

“You’re getting the hang of it,” I tell her.


I’m teaching her to drive, checking off another item on her never-done-before list. She is slightly aggressive with the pedals. OK, I’m lying. She’s more aggressive than a street racer. She is a pint sized Vin Diesel. Pedestrians and squirrels should be very afraid.

My neck hurts from the starts and stops. That’s a minor problem compared to my pants, which are cinched tighter than a tourniquet. Cuz I’m horny. As hell. One way or another, Cleo Lee is going to kill me.

After sleeping, or rather surviving the torture of her warm body bumped up against mine in a narrow twin bed for five hours, I finally snuck upstairs and jerked off in the shower. Then we started the day with Cleo braless in a thin, clingy tank top. I spent our breakfast staring at my waffles, trying to avoid the sight of her perky little nips. I wasn’t entirely successful. So then, with half-a-hard-on, I ignored her as much as possible while we bought lace bras and panties in a rainbow of colors. Lace is my kryptonite and even worse, I’m pretty sure Cleo is wearing the red ones. At least, I’m picturing her in the red ones. I like red.

“I think I’ll do better going faster,” Cleo tells me. She’s a little breathless, and I bet that’s real close to what she’d sound like if I went down on her. Maybe not, but my imagination is running with it.

“Yup,” I croak, just to say something as she pilots the Twat in a jerky circle.

She answers back with either, “You’re the worcestershire on the plant,” or “You are the worst teacher on the planet.” I’m not sure. I’m not really listening. I’ve had an epiphany.

My hands are big. Her ass is not. I’ll need to test my theory, but I am suddenly convinced each ass cheek would fit nicely in my palms, and I could support her weight with her back against the wall and her legs wrapped around my waist.

Yes, I am a sick prick. After what she’s been through, the last thing she needs is me slobbering all over her. So I will be the friend she needs, do whatever she needs, but shit, I really want to toss her in the backseat and slobber. All. Over. Her.

I haven’t been laid in eight months. I’ve had girls crawling all over me, eager to help, yet somehow so needy, I felt like they might suck me dry. I could’ve picked any one of them. Easy. No effort. Instead, I’m panting after Cleo Lee. Might as well cuddle a cactus, step on a rusty nail, stick my dick in the blender because the girl is brutal.

“I like going faster,” she tells me in a soft voice.

Sweet Christ. At the end of this, we’ll be spooned into my twin mattress in the basement again, and I’m ninety-nine percent sure my balls might actually explode.

When Art Rises & Giveaway


When Art Rises: Living in Cin
by Lorrain Allen
Genre: Dark Romance 

WARNING: This book is heartbreaking, dark, dirty, demented, and is only for true dark romance lovers. Arthur is not the hero…he’s the anti-hero. While the setting of this story is in a high school environment, its recommended reading age is eighteen+ due to mature content, explicit sexual scenes, and graphic language. You may need to take a shower afterwards. Please take my warning seriously before reading this book. IT’S NOT FOR SENSITIVE READERS. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!


Arthur “Art

The moment I die, I’m going straight to hell, and that’s exactly where I belong. When I was fifteen, the course of my life changed—one second was all it took. The truth about what happened that summer night is driving me to the brink of insanity. I’m an ex-drug addict and suicide survivor who’s been deemed a lost cause. No one can control me. I don’t give a damn about anything—until I meet her. She’s a “Cin” worth committing.

Cinnamon “Cin

I have a life most would envy—a track star with a full scholarship lined up after I graduate high school. My boyfriend and I are looking forward to our future together. I’m content—until I meet him. He’s dangerous, damaged, and I know it’s best to keep my distance, but damn I’m drawn to him. Art is a beautiful disaster, tearing my carefully laid plans apart, causing havoc. Little did I know my choice would set in motion the destruction of my perfect world. The consequences will be catastrophic once the dust settles.







Lorrain has enjoyed writing ever since she was a child and was also part of the poetry club in middle school. She loves to get away from the world and lose herself in a book. As a young adult, she became a romance book junky and was inspired to pen her first romance by the many creative authors whose books she's read. She wants to provide her fans with a suspenseful read that has a twist at the end. The subject matters of her books are a little controversial, but life is boring without a little controversy.

Ordinary 
Ordinary Series Book 1 
by Starr Z. Davies 
Genre: YA Sci-Fi Dystopian 


Fans of Powerless, The Testing, Hunger Games and the Maze Runner will crave this world of iniquitous secrets, intrigue, and desire to find a place in society. 

Divinic. Somatic. Psionic. Naturalist. Who will you be? 

Having a superpower is ordinary. Your Power determines your job, social class, and future success. 

But Ugene doesn’t have a Power. The only thing special about him is that he isn’t special at all. Ugene is Powerless. 

So when the most prominent biomedical research company in the city offers Ugene a solution, he jumps at the possibility to be ordinary. All he has to do is agree to allow them to use him in their research. But the longer he stays at the research facility, the more he realizes something isn't right. 

Friendships are forged. Trust is broken built and broken. And everything Ugene thought he understood and believed is called into question. 

Who can Ugene trust in his search for answers? What is he willing to sacrifice for Powers?

From a young age, Starr has been obsessed with superheroes like Batman and Captain America, which inspired her novel, ORDINARY.

While pursuing a degree in Creative Writing from the University of Wisconsin, Starr gained a reputation as the “Character Assassin” because she has a habit of utterly destroying her characters both emotionally and physically. 

In her free time, Starr loves watching Doctor Who or anything with superheroes, reading books (duh!), writing about her favorite fantasy stories (Song of Ice and Fire, Mistborn, The Wheel of Time), and staring out the window as she dreams up more stories. Oh, and sometimes she steps out the door.
