Killing Mary Jane by Amarie Avant

Release day 8/6/2018

Trapped in a seedy world, stripped of her dignity and her past, Mary Jane has nothing. Not even a future to dream about. Every bone in her body screams to trust no one.

Not even herself.

When her abductor’s most loyal hitman unexpectedly offers her the chance to escape a harem of hopeless women, she acts on sheer instinct and seizes the opportunity to run—only to crash into a rugged, steely-eyed cop who seems to be able to shrug off anything but the weight of his dark, gut-wrenching past.

For Dylan Wulf, dealing with the dysfunctional Mary Jane is just another day at the cop shop. He can even ignore the temptation to give a damn about the lawless beauty—a mistake he can’t afford to make again. Until she forces him at gunpoint to drive. Flying bullets warn that someone wants her badly enough to kill.

Pursued by ruthless henchmen and dirty cops, Wulf and Mary Jane are plunged into a world of twisted schemes, dangerous obsession, and forbidden desire. Following a bloody trail of fragmented memories, Mary Jane’s past could lead them to safety—or certain death.

Killing Mary Jane is a riveting thriller, with dark action. Fans of Quentin Tarantino’s films and the smash HBO hit West World will find this action-packed ride keeps you pulling the pieces of the puzzle until the end. 

CLICK here to read an extended excerpt that will pull you into this crazy, rollercoaster of fun!

Storm by Gurpreet Kaur Sidhu #stormbooktour #stormiscoming #itsacursetoremember

The first in a series, Storm is a twists-and-turns thriller driven by compelling characters challenged by dangerous forces, both external, internal, and eternal.

Evan Storm had been confronted by his past (an unpleasant one at that) in his dreams, and now in his waking life. He is struggling to reconcile the evil that lurks in his soul. Shadow Hex is his new neighbor, who also fears a dangerous past – her former fiancé who works for the Secret Eye Agency (which is as shadowy and sinister as it sounds). Does Shadow hold the key to Evan’s redemption? Is redemption even possible?

Interview –
Tell us about your new release?

It’s about Evan Storm who remembers his past life. He has a gut feeling there’s a reason as to why he remembers a life that has no correlation to his current life. As he’s trying to make sense of it all, he meets Shadow Hex, who is escaping from her ex-fiancé, Marvin Stone. When the two meet, he realizes who she is and for him, things begin to fall into place. But Evan has no idea what he’s getting himself into getting involved with Shadow.

Where would you live if you could live anywhere in the world?

Gosh, there are soo many beautiful places that I would want to make my home! I would have to say Florence, Italy because I’ve been there. It’s breathtaking and it’s such a peaceful city. And out of all the cities we visit, Florence had the best gelato! I had it for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Do you read reviews written about your book?

Yes, I do and some of them are not fun to read! However, I have an amazing PR manager, who has made it easier for me to read the reviews. The reality is, not everyone is going to love your work and be interested in it. It’s discouraging but then I remind myself that I can’t please everyone. Even the greatest bestselling authors of our time have had some really bad reviews.

Do you listen to music while writing?

Yes, I do! I will listen to anything that gets me in the mood to write. Sometimes I will listen to sad songs to help me write a sad scene in the book. It’s hard to write something sad when you’re in a good mood.

What do you love about writing?

I love that I can immerse myself in a whole new world where I have control over what happens. I get to bring different types of personalities to life. With writing, I’m in charge and that helps me kind of release any kind of pain or disappointment I’ve had or dealing with. My life didn’t go the way I planned. I question a lot of things that have happened in my life and wonder why they happened. Sometimes we don’t get the answer we’re looking for, and sometimes we do. This particular story helped me grieve and I believe a lot of authors, who write fiction, write from their own experience. The story the world ends up reading is the exaggerated version of the truth. The best way to describe my love for writing is that it’s therapeutic.

Did you know the title before you started writing?

No, I did not. When I wrote the first draft, it was called Eight. I discussed the title with my editor and she gave me her input. When we worked together on the final version two years later, it was called The New Beginning. I had a really hard time coming up with the title for this book. So, when I had people read the book, I wrote down all the suggestions I received and brainstormed all the potential titles that would fit this book. Out of 40 different titles, I finally decided to name this book Storm with the subtitle: It’s a curse to remember. It fits perfectly with what the book is about.

What inspired you to write, you took any ideas from other books, movies etc?

I was inspired by Shonda Rhimes’ show Scandal and the secret organization called B613. In Storm, there’s also a sinister organization called, The SEA which stands for The Secret Eye Agency. Other than that, I’ve always been curious about past lives and reincarnation. I’ve come across people who do know who they were in their past lives and I think that’s just mind-blowing. I don’t have that sort of gift so I decided, why not create a story where the character does remember his past life? And that’s how this story came to be.

Are there any particular books and/or authors that inspired you and continue to do so?

Oh, absolutely! J.K. Rowling has been an inspiration since her first release and continues to be my inspiration. When I wrote my first book in the seventh grade, I had the mindset that if J. K. Rowling could create something so fantastic, so could I. Even now, when I look back at her struggles and how far she’s come despite those struggles, it just pushes me even more to write and not give up. Growing up, I always wanted to be the next J. K. Rowling in the sense that she built an empire all on her own. She had a vision and she didn’t give up on that. She’s a legend!  One of my favorite things about her is that she donated a lot of money to charity which resulted in her losing her title as a billionaire. When I read that, my heart filled with soo much happiness. I really hope one day I can do the same.

Where can readers find your books?

They can find Storm on my website, gurpreetkaursidhu.com, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kindle, Nook, iBooks, and Google Play Books.

Do you ever run into someone who says “You write WHAT?”

I think it’s not even what I write that shocks people. It’s the fact that I write in general and have written a novel that shocks them. I’m very secretive about what I do when it comes to my goals and ambitions. For me, it’s the questions I’m not ready to answer if I speak too soon. So I keep quiet People do get shocked when they hear about what I’ve written or what the book is about because when you look at me, you wouldn’t expect me to write in this kind of genre. But I guess it’s always good to surprise people and not reveal everything, right?

What projects are you currently working on right now? Would you mind sharing them with us? 

I’m working on the second book for this series. I’m almost halfway done, but I took a break from writing the second book because there is a lot that goes on and I need a break from that world. Even though I plan everything out before writing, it does mentally exhaust you. When you’re trying to keep readers on their toes and create plot twists, you are constantly thinking outside of the box. I’m playing out different scenarios in my head to see which one would get the best result when I’m trying to fall asleep! So, it’s a break I really needed but I feel I’m ready to head back into that arena and finish the story. I’m also working on a screenplay, which I hope to see on the big screen. I’m in the process of editing it before I hand it over to a professional to review it. It’s a totally different genre to the books I write which fall under the psychological thriller category. For the screenplay, I planned out what was going to happen from the beginning to the end, and as I was writing the ending, it took a whole different turn. I actually cried as I was writing the ending. It was so unexpected, but I think the ending is what is going to make the story memorable.

It’s been six months since Gerard Brandt lost his brother in a tragic accident. Gerard left home, years ago, after relinquishing his title as Alpha due to personal demons. He’s looking into the spike of deaths and deceit in his small town but in the center of it all is the dangerous and alluring Teegan Dean. He’ll do anything to keep her safe.

For centuries these two clans have been enemies; the Brandt’s – known for their unscrupulous manipulation and the Hok’ees – notorious for murder, lies and deception. Now a power struggle has finally erupted. As past secrets come to haunt the town of Silverton, the Heads of each clan must meet in order to cease this impending war.

Teegan is the key to one pack’s destruction, as she is, strength to the other.
