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.

Submerged (a mermaid tale) by Pauline Creeden

Mermaids can be cruel creatures.

I couldn’t stop them from hurting her, but I couldn’t let them destroy her, no matter what they did to me. The moment I heard the bottom feeder had been chosen for the reckoning, my heart sank. Had I been discovered for what I truly was? Years of pretending I was just like everyone else could all have been for naught. But then I heard it was Verona, and my blood ran cold.

Why was I surprised?

I shouldn’t have been. I’d stood by and watched her ridiculed since we were younglings. I was never as brave or as unselfish as she was. But today, I would be.

Free on Kindle Unlimited or $.99 on Amazon

Mermaids can be cruel creatures.

Verona is a bottom feeder. She is the one mer in her clan who is considered the ugliest and least intelligent. Growing up with the constant bullying and abuse wasn’t the worst of what her kind had in store for her. At seventeen years old, she must now endure “The Reckoning.”

The scales will measure her worth to her clan. Will she endure thirty days as a land-walker to gather information and knowledge to appease her clan and return a valued member? Will she wait three years, until she is twenty, and find a mer of her kind to accept her and marry her? Or will she suffer exile for the rest of her life?

Edger by David Beem

Edger

by David Beem

Meet Edger (Ed-jer), a twenty-six-year-old gadget retail dork destined to become the world’s first superhero!

His superpower: the ability to channel the Collective Unconscious, a psychic network connecting the living and the dead. In his arsenal are the skills of Bruce Lee, the strength of Samson, the wisdom of the ages…and the dancing chops of Michael Jackson—including that one twisty foot move, crotch grab, and fedora tilt.

But there’s a catch…

Like every psychic superpower to get administered through a hypodermic needle, this one comes with a prick. Someone seems to have misplaced the booster necessary for stabilizing his superpower. Without it, Edger has three days before his brain turns to pudding.

Join our Dork of Destiny as he overcomes the world’s greatest butt, two rival Cluck-n-Pray gangs, an evil cow, a Green Bay Defensive Tackle, rifle-toting assassins—and a pair of stoners who inadvertently create the world’s first supervillain after a wild night on Twitter!

David Beem enjoys superhero movies, taekwondo, and flossing. He lives in Djibouti with his family and crippling self-doubt. Help actualize David’s inner confidence. Visit his website today, and buy all the stuff.

“…undeniably entertaining.” – Kirkus Reviews

 

Interview with Author David Beem

Try to describe your book in one sentence.

It’s a comedy about a computer nerd whose world is turned upside down by a sexy spy to become the world’s first superhero.

State a random fact about yourself that would surprise your readers.

         I’m hiding in your pantry right now, eating all your crackers.

If you wouldn’t be a writer, what you would be?

         Hitman. I’d totally kill it.

Do you read reviews written about your book?

I do. Not only that, I obtain the names and addresses of all the trolls out there. So keep it up, Brenda!

Who is your favorite character in your new release?

Shmuel. Balding, early forties. Been stoned since his twenties (ostensibly to manage his hemorrhoids). He’s the getaway driver for the A-Team, and underest under achiever to ever under achieve.

Do you see yourself in any of your characters?

Shmuel. For I, too, am confused by adulthood and stuff. For I, too, am the getaway driver—only for me the getting away driving is usually for my wife at a Meijer.

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

Edger arose like the Sword of Justice at twilight from a placid lake…after binge-watching Chuck on Netflix. The queen and I were devastated to have arrived at the end. We wanted more. Determined, I went down, down, down to the magician’s quarters. We plotted, then pantsed it. Together, we stirred the cauldron: One part, Chuck, one part Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and one part superhero movies (for the magician’s daughter is smitten with superhero action movie Chrises). And lo, Edger was born.

Do you have an all-time favorite book?

         Good Omens.

Do you prefer Twitter or Facebook?

         Facebook.

The last book you’ve read?

         Stick Dog Chases a Pizza.

Anything else you would like to add?

Yes. Eventually I realized, alas, that the main purpose of eating Pringles is to finish them…alone, broken, and friendless.

Interview with author CJ Warrant

If someone else wrote a blurb about your book what would it say?
Las Vegas stripper, Jazz is the Mirror Image of a murderer, and finds out they might be twins. With help from a Denver cop, they discover the dark secret and truth about her past and the true identity of the killer

Tell me a little about yourself.
I’m half Korean and half Italian, born an army brat in Korea but family came to the US when I was five. I’m married and have three nearly grown children. I love writing romantic thrillers and I’m audiobook junkie as well as reading.

Who are your cheerleaders?
My family! They all support me, which I’m truly grateful especially on those day when I’m in my writing cave and dinner is still in the freezer.

What are your guilty pleasures?
Erotic Romance. I can’t help it! So sexy.

What’s the hardest part of writing a book?
The editing. It can be daunting, but in the end it’s worth delivering a good book.

Are you a plotter or a pantzer?
I started as a pantzer, but as I write more—especially with series, I seem to lean toward the plotter side.

Did you do any research before start or during of the writing of the books?
Most definitely. I need to get a good feel for my characters, their jobs, where they live—community and their families—if they have families. And since I write romantic suspense and thrillers, I need to make sure my villains’ issues have a bit of reality to their psychotic personalities.

Which genres do you prefer to read?
I love romantic suspense but lately I love reading paranormal romance and m/m romance.

How important do you find the communication between you and your readers? I find it very important to keep in touch with my readers, especially through social media, my newsletters and emails I receive. Do you reply to their messages or read their reviews? I do reply to some messages but not all. And I read all reviews, good and bad.

The last book you’ve read? True by Ella Frank( The Temptation series book 6) I so love the characters in this series. I love the way Ms. Frank turned them alive.

What is in the works for you next? I’m finished with my second novella, which is tied to duet series I have out. And I’m currently editing on two different book series, one is a romantic suspense and the other is a paranormal romance trilogy.

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?

The Helios Chronicles is a contemporary romance series that follows the lives of Andrew ‘Helios’ Harrison and Madison Ellis as they fight for their happily ever after in a world that seems determined to tear them apart. It is only through their love for one another, that we are able to see that we are more than the mistakes we’ve made, more than the labels placed upon us and more than even what we believe we are worth. Can their love survive the life he had before her or will the consequences of his past prove too much to bear. Read the Helios Chronicles to find out!

The Helios Chronicles is a five book series which includes three full length novels, one prequel novella and one epilogue novella. Please note that this is an adult romance and as such there will be some graphic language and situations that are clearly not suitable for younger audiences.

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?
