I. Am. Elizabeth by Kathi Haacke Morehead


I. Am. Elizabeth by Kathi Haacke Morehead

I. Am. Elizabeth is a story of medieval intrigue based on the life of Elizabeth Plantagenet. Set both contemporaneously and in the 16th century, the reader will be invited to weigh for themselves the truth of Elizabeth’s life, including the disappearance of Elizabeth’s brothers, the Lost Princes in the Tower, the ascension of her uncle, Richard III, to the throne of England, and her marriage to Henry Tudor. Elizabeth Plantagenet was a daughter, niece, sister, wife, and mother to five Kings of England, and grandmother of the first and second Queens Regnant: Mary I and Elizabeth I. You may have met The White Princess, but prepare for your introduction to the real Elizabeth of York.

Description:
Elizabeth of York died in 1503. Annie Campbell lives today. Can they reach through time to heal one another’s soul, or will their secrets be impossible to overcome?

…. Why can’t I sleep? It is not as though tonight is any different from last night, or the night before, or even the night before that. It’s hot, and not a breath of air moves through the window. I feel like I will go mad from this anxiety, this fear. But of what? It’s so very dark tonight. No moon, no light from the windows. Just dark… Damn you, darkness. You’ve not been kind the past few nights. What horror do you hold for me tonight?

Mirror Image by CJ Warrant Cover Reveal and Contest

Las Vegas stripper, Jazz Connolly is wrongly accused of murder and finds out the killer may be her identical twin. With help from a Denver cop Mike Mitchell—the latest victim’s best friend and her accuser, Jazz uncovers facts about her past, a dark secret twisted with lies, and clues to the killer’s true identity.

When Mike finds Jazz on his doorstep, he can’t resist the temptation and helps her track down details of her past. As they uncover clues, he can’t ignore the potent chemistry between them. In this tangled web of chaos, their passion ignites, but can they learn to trust each other? While the body count grows, they will have to fight back, love hard, and survive in order to learn the truth and expose the real killer.

CJ Warrant Bio:

CJ Warrant is a lover, a hater and sometimes a fighter for all she’s passionate about. She can’t exist without coffee, chocolate and a damn story brewing in her head. She was born an overseas Army brat, in a Korean Italian household but settled in the states at the ripe old age of five.

With a long career in the beauty industry, a wonderful marriage to a great man and three kids nearly all grown, her view of life is as such. Life is a journey; both good and bad, light and dark, but she takes it all in and learns from every experience life has to offer. She takes those crazy moments, stirs in the dark and brings her passion for words to life.

Read our interview with author TM Witko

How would you describe your book in 20 words or less without using the blurb?
The Helios Chronicles follows the ups and downs of Andrew and Madison’s life and love,
in an unforgiving world.

 Tell us a little about yourself
For those that don’t know me, my name is T.M. Witko. I am a licensed clinical
psychologist, a full-time writer/editor and one of the co-founders of Winyan Press, LLC,
an independent publishing house geared at helping female writers find their voice.
When I first started writing I thought that I had to pick one particular style and write just
in that style but then I met several writers that were considered multi-genre authors
and realized that I could do all the things I enjoyed. Thus, I consider myself a multi-genre
author who writes Young Adult & New Adult Fiction, Crime/Suspense/Thrillers, Adult
Romance, and Native American Fiction.

Have you always wanted to be a writer?
Yes, from the time I was tween, I would get lost in the written world, a pleasant escape
from reality. I used to create environments in my head and produce stories for the
events around me. It became a fun game for my friends. They would say, hey Tawa,
‘what’s going on there’, or ‘what do you think is happening in that picture’, and I would
just make up some intricate plot. It was amazing. But, life had other things in mind for
me and I found myself double majoring in Literature and Psychology. God, or the creator
in my tradition, decided my path and I went with it, figuring at some point I would find
myself in the writing world, and, I have.

 Do you listen to music while writing?
Always, I have different playlists for my moods. Some artists just evoke certain feelings
in me. For example, the indie artists Bobby Long, served as my music muse for the
Helios Chronicles. There was just something about his songs that made me feel as if he
were writing about my Helios. I remember when I first started writing again, if I
indicated that I was listening to Kings of Leon, people knew something bad was about to
happen…. LOL, but Kris Allen, served the opposite, he always made me feel hopeful and
carefree. I actually have a few songs I have heard recently that I’m dying to write a story
to. It was like, the moment I heard them a story began to form in my head. I’m sure I’ll
write them at some point ?

Do you see yourself in any of your characters?
Yes, usually I put a piece of myself in several characters, whether it be a quirk or my
favorite coffee, or favorite sports team. Some characters are more me than others. I just
finished writing a Young Adult story with my teenage daughter and the dynamics of the
mother and daughter are very much us.

Are you a plotter or a pantzer?
I am definitely a plotter. Before I start writing I have it outlined, with family trees, and
timelines of events. I do this with all my stories but even more so when I write suspense.
But, even in The Helios Chronicles, I needed an extensive timeline for when things
happen, because while you can read each book independently, there are some
overarching themes, so I needed to make sure they all connected.

Where do you get your inspiration?
Because I am a multi-genre author, my inspiration comes from a lot of places. I will say
that I really love throwing angst in stories, which I know comes from the work I do as a
clinical psychologist. That energy has to go somewhere and it often ends up in my
stories. Not specific things, mind you, that would be a breach of confidentiality, but it’s
more the energy that comes off of being in despair. If I’m good at what I do then I take a
little bit of that energy away from my clients and take it with me, so they can be a bit
better, but I have to get rid of it, so when a story is particularly angsty, I know it’s been a
rough week, or month. Most of my Native fiction comes from my environment and my
life. And of course, music, or things I see. My children and family, often ground me, just
to make sure I don’t go too deep into the angst or despair. My daughter likes to tell me
that she keeps me from killing everyone off… LOL, she’s probably right on that ?

What book is currently on your nightstand?
I have been re-reading a friend of mines Ceaseless series. She, Mindy Marin, wrote the
first two books, Birth of the Phoenix and Flight of the Thunderbird, and I am anxiously
awaiting the final book, which she hasn’t written yet. It’s a story of love and magic and
reincarnation.

How important do you find the communication between you and your readers? Do you
reply to their messages or read their reviews?
I think it’s integral to developing a fanbase. I respond to every message I receive. I
remember one person having a long conversation with me about my books and she was

simply surprised that she was talking to the author. I told her, ‘if she had the time to
message me, I had the time to answer’. I want to connect with people. There’s not much
I like more than visiting with people about books ?
I definitely read reviews and take it all in. Even if someone doesn’t like something, I
think it’s important, unless of course, it’s just to complain and they don’t really have a
solid reason. I received one review that just didn’t like the POV I used in one of my
books. I immediately jumped over to my editor and asked her about it, she told me that
I was very clear in who was talking and not to feel upset about it. I told her I wasn’t
upset, just curious if that was something I needed to fix in the other books. I don’t think
I’m perfect by far and I’m sure if I re-read any of my books I’d find lots of flaws, wouldn’t
we all? But, yes, I think reviews let us know if we have touched someone or not.
Sometimes people just message me their thoughts which I love but, then I’m thinking,
this is awesome but please, leave this same thought on Amazon… LOL

 If you could visit any place in the world or a place created by a book, where would you
visit?
In real life I have always wanted to visit Paris. It’s my dream that I hope to one day fulfill.
As far as in the book universe, that’s easy. I’d want to go to Hogwarts. I’m a huge
Potterhead, as are my children. I think hoping the Hogwarts Express and heading to the
castle would be the ultimate fangirl experience. Guess the closest I will get to that is
Universal Studios ?

What projects are you currently working on right now? Would you mind sharing them
with us? 
I have three completed stories set to release in 2018. One is a paranormal young adult
story called, An Unexpected Gift which I wrote with my daughter. It’s the first book in a
series called The Diakrisis Tales, about a young girl named Parker, who unbeknownst to
her, possess the gift to not only see spirits but communicate with them as well. In the
first book she finds herself battling a demon in her new town. The second book is a
crime suspense story called, Retaliatory Justice which is about a group of elite ATF
agents, trying to solve a multi-city crime. It is also the first book of a series, this one
called The Talionic Files. In the first book we find Valentino taking on the case of his
career, but can he complete the mission without losing himself in the process? The third
book is an adult romance called, Beyond the Beach, which is a story of two people,
Masen and Zoe, who decide to have an island fling, only they end up falling in love with
one another. Will they be able to say goodbye at the end of their time together?

Captain Hawkins (The Jamie Hawkins Saga Book 1)

captainhawkinsbookblast517reevqnflStrong vibrant characters with action packed battle drama

Jamie Hawkins was living on an obscure planet in the twenty third-century when on one fateful night–his life changed forever. His heroic effort to save the lives of innocent women and children, caught in the cross-fire of war, placed him squarely in the cross-hairs of avenging soldiers.

Hawkins was stunned when his rescue effort was seen as treachery. Unfairly convicted of treason by a corrupt judge, he was sentenced to life imprisonment at hard labor on an infamous penal colony.

Once in prison, his courage and perseverance won him the admiration and trust of his fellow convicts. While he was plotting his escape, an enemy attacked the planet–giving this daring warrior his chance. Together with his fellow prisoners, he launched a bold assault and high-jacked an enemy warship.

From then on, Captain Jamie Hawkins and his ship the Indefatigable fought against a corrupt government–only to discover a mysterious alien presence behind the war.

Letting Go: A Contemporary Romantic Thriller by Anthony Awtrey

lettinggobooktourletting_go_2000x3000Despite his wealth, Alex Thompson has been living in fear since his wife died in childbirth. A frivolous wrongful death lawsuit, harassing phone calls, and anonymous threats drive him and his five-year-old twins away from their home in Houston and into the crosshairs of a sniper.

Molly McDill is a struggling single mom who lives next door to Alex and his twins. When she helps them adjust to their new life in the country, she exposes herself and her son to the same threat that followed Alex.

An attempt on his life throws their lives into chaos, inviting more threats, public scrutiny, and Molly’s ex-husband back into her life. The tension tests the attraction they feel toward each other as they struggle to keep life normal for their kids.

Alex still doesn’t know who wants him dead but suspects his former in-laws. As the threats become a visceral danger, Alex and Molly race to uncover the secret that died with his wife before it costs them everything.

About the Cynthia Roberts –

My love of reading romance fiction goes back to those early years when I was raising a young family. It wasn’t until Cynthiaphotomuch later in life I actually took up the pen to write my first historical romance, Wind Warrior. I really don’t fit into one specific niche. Once a story starts to flow, it’s only then I know what genre/sub­genre it will fit under.

I have only one regret, and that is not getting to this point in my career much sooner, rather than later. Life has a way of setting up road blocks, which for me, was supposed to work out that way. Because of those detours, I have become a more passionate and expressive writer, allowing me to create the kind of raw human emotion I want my readership to feel. It is my hope you walk away with not just an entertaining read, but the importance in knowing,

“Without imagination & dreams, we lose the excitement of wonderful possibilities.”

On that same day the police uncover a dead coed two blocks from Jenna’s house. The e-murderer’s description creepily echos the death described in the newspapers.

When Jenna receives other emails, she takes what she knows to the police and thus begins her journey in the path of the e-murderer. Her curious nature impels her from e-messages to dead coeds to a ring of prostitutes. With the help of her quirky friends, Jenna learns that she’s more than a conduit for the killer. She’s his target. New secrets unfold, and finally her love life takes a tumble when the true killer emerges.

THE E-MURDERER is a race to find a psychotic killer before he kills again.

She was head cheerleader, the girlfriend of the All-American High School Quarterback, had been accepted to a prestige college near her hometown and the best family and friends a young woman could ask for. Just before Christmas 2004, Dr. Jethro “Jet” Manning, the doctor-in-training for the quaint little town, nearly runs over Lily, who is found unresponsive and icy cold in the middle of a backroad.

Fast forward to 2015 – Lily Grimes finally wakes up and has to face the reality of being in a coma for the past 11 years. Her life has changed but just as she feels like she is getting into the groove of things, Lily discovers secrets have been kept, lies have been told and everyone whom she considered a ‘friend’, may not be out for her best interest. Lily feels like something is missing – a piece of herself. Is it simply because she was in a coma for so long or is there literally a piece missing?

As she sets out on a mission to find the answer, Lily discovers that she’s being stalked and someone is trying to kill her. Who can she trust and will she ever find the secret to those eleven missing years?

July 15, 1984. Shelly Oakley (now Maynard) was born and lived in tiny Ashmore, Illinois until 1998 when her parents relocated to Manchester, Tennessee. Starting a new high school and making new friends was hard enough but it was that point in her life where it came time to make life-changing decisions in regards to college, careers, etc. Shelly had spent so much time following in others’ footsteps that she never had a plan for her career. The only dream she’d ever had was to become an author but that was laughed off by family and friends. By 2002, Shelly was in college and switched her major from nursing to teaching and finally business. One year in and she discovered that she was pregnant with her first son. He joined the world in 2004 and was followed by a brother in 2006. During the second pregnancy, Shelly fought demons of a bad marriage and started trying to rebuild her life. She met her (now) husband in the Fall of 2006 and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Her three guys are her entire heart, soul, mind and spirit! After searching for several years, Shelly decided that it was time to find a place to settle in her career. She started working for a local, family-owned steel fabrication company in 2014 and was surprised when she found more than a job – she gained an extended family and friends who provided a tremendous amount of support. Between the support of her husband, children, family and friends, Shelly started writing again. Past demons haunted her but she wanted to set an example for her children and follow her dream through to the end to prove that hard work, persistence and dedication pays off! Living in Lynchburg, Tennessee, Shelly Maynard is your typical mom – she enjoys spending time with her family, friends and for nine of the twelve months per year, you’ll find her at a ball field watching her children. She enjoys front-porch-sittin’ with a glass of sweet tea and the occasional margarita. She loves her morning coffee, a good book and writing for her blog. It’s the simple, “little” things in life that make life grand! She also blogs at www.lynchburgtnmama.com
