Nine30

They say home is where the heart is, but if that’s true, then I’m lost because I have no clue where my heart is, anymore. I thought I knew—until I met Maximillian.

I was on my way out of the Capital City before the local vampires could catch on to me and let’s just say if that happened then this club dancer would be facing her expiration date. And that’s when the famous DJ blew into town—and into my head and heart. He turned all my plans upside down with his sick friend and his electric blue eyes, damn it.

I should have cut bait and run for my life, but I couldn’t abandon someone I could heal—even if it meant the vampires might catch up with me. Besides, Maximillian smelled familiar, like deep forest and pine needles baked in the sun mixed with that chilly snap of running water and the coolness of twilight. Those things have a smell that adds up to a dream.

You can get lost in that kind of dream. It can fill your mind with ideas and notions you have no business thinking or feeling. Dreams like that make it easy to forget the danger you’re in.

Melissa Lummis considers herself a truth seeker and a peaceful warrior, in addition to a paranormal and fantasy author. With too many interests for her own good, she has rarely been content with one vocation. Her first professional life was as a high school English teacher, which led to another incarnation as a wife and an instructional designer /technical writer. After starting a family, she found herself reincarnated as a mother, yoga instructor, and personal trainer.

While all her past lives have contributed to who she is today, yoga has become a part of how she gives back, maintaining her Registered Yoga Teacher status with Yoga Alliance so she can help people one-on-one to overcome physical limitations and heal themselves. But she has always been and always will be a writer. She’s authored dozens of wellness articles for various publications, as well as maintains a blog focusing on wellness, healing, and living a life on purpose.

She is an author of new age suspense in a fantasy setting, but her stories are also straight up, steamy adult romance. The Love and Light Series is currently available at exclusively on Amazon, as well as the Little Flame Series, a spin-off focusing on the character Fiamette from the Love and Light world.

A Yankee by birth and a Penn State graduate, she lives in rural Virginia with her husband, two children, an Alaskan Malamute, and a myriad of forest creatures. Melissa believes the universe conspires to help an adventurer, and if we live our lives as if it is a daring escapade (and it is!), then everything we need will find its way to us.

20151119-REL-Jane_Bowyer-1179About the author:

I grew up on a hill in the north of England. From a young age, I wanted to live in London. As a child, during the depths of night, I’d often listen to the hum of passing trains. Sometimes I’d run to my bedroom window hoping to catch a glimpse so that I could pretend that I too was travelling on one, speeding along, London bound, like the rest of the world was sleeping.

So one day in my late teens, I bought a one-way ticket and travelled to London with just £30.00 in my pocket and a bit of blind faith.

In my novel The Last Days of Lisa, (that I’m still writing), the main character Lisa mirrors how overwhelming it was for me to see London for the first time through the eyes of a teenager travelling alone….

‘London never rests, she thinks. It’s on speed. A vortex, absorbing everything. Running from its own stench but also basking in it. Seemingly superficial and plastic to those not enchanted by its ambivalent charms. London has a soul; a ravenous appetite that feeds on the egos of the thousands that flock here each day to get closer to their dreams. ‘ 

Not long after moving to London,  yoga and writing graced my life. I think they both saved me.  On the writing front the spark came after reading the book, Catcher in the Rye. I’d not had the opportunity to study much as a child but that didn’t matter now as this book blew me away.

“If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of c—p, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.”  J.D Salinger

As for yoga, another book in the form of a second-hand yoga book written back in the 1960’s made its way into my mitts via a second-hand bookstore.

As I’d said earlier, to start with I wasn’t very good at either.  Dyslexia and lack of flexibility and poor posture were my obstacles.  I could see beyond that though as both yoga and writing offered me hope and possibilities that before this I hadn’t ever thought possible.  Before yoga and writing I believed I was useless and had nothing to offer the world.

So I worked hard at studying for more than a decade.  The author John Harding was the first teacher to believe in me. After studying writing under his inspiring tuition,  I even managed to get a few novels published along the way.

On the yoga side, I studied both Hatha and later Kundalini yoga and despite not being naturally flexible nor a person who liked to sit still. It was in India back in 2004 that I had my first awakening experience.

During all this time, I also managed over the years to work my way up from an office junior job to a finally a supervisor position, having worked for most of my life in a string of unfulfilling office jobs.  The good news that in October 2015 I left office work to become The Word Sprite full time!

The silver lining in all of this is through my personal experience of having to be creative with my time I came up with the concept of yoga and holistic solutions for modern day living. Hence, this is how  The Word Sprite was born!

A Bundle of Trouble by Olivia Hardin

box set - 600
lynlee bundle transGet the first THREE Lynlee Lincoln Series books, PLUS a bonus holiday prequel all in ONE Bundle. Inside you’ll find:

The Trouble with Holidays (A Lynlee Lincoln Series Prequel)
Falling for a human who doesn’t believe in magic was the last thing Lynlee Lincoln needed. Beck Hale was a young architect and she was a Neutralizer-in-training–they were drawn together, but worlds apart. When Beck’s apartment gets flooded, she invites him to her home for Christmas. Lynlee tries to ignore the pull of the mistletoe, but after all, ’tis the season.

Trolling for Trouble (The Lynlee Lincoln Series Book 1)
The Lynlee Lincoln Series One: Magical and undead creatures can get into plenty of sticky situations. Lynlee Lincoln loves her job as a neutralizer, but she needs a break from the supernatural chaos after an ultra-busy Halloween night. Coming home, she’s ready to collapse into her bed and forget the day… until she discovers two children scavenging through her refrigerator. One look at the pair and she feels a tug on her heartstrings, then she learns their father is the man she spent years trying to forget. When Beck pleads with her to help save his daughter, Lynlee gets thrust into a heap of trouble.

Tangled Up in Trouble (The Lynlee Lincoln Series Book 2)
Lynlee Lincoln isn’t just a witch, she’s also a Neutralizer. Her job is a juggling act to keep magical and undead clients out of trouble. But getting back together with her old flame throws one more ball into the mix and romance with a guy who has two kids can get complicated. When her old mentor asks her to investigate the goings-on of a dark witch, things turn messy. The witch is stalking supernatural creatures to collect ingredients for a potion that Lynlee can’t seem to figure out.

To keep those closest to her from becoming the next victims, she may have to confront the demons within herself.

This Spells Trouble ((The Lynlee Lincoln Series Book 3)
It took some work, but Lynlee Lincoln has finally found balance between her life as a witch and her relationship with Beck Hale. A human boyfriend with two kids wasn’t something she ever planned, but their new arrangement lets her have her cake and eat it, too. Just when she’s getting comfortable, puzzling visions of impending danger at home begin to haunt her dreams.

And if personal issues aren’t troubling enough, Lynlee and the entire organization of Neutralizers go on alert when a phantom creature begins staging magical episodes on live television. If they can’t put a stop to the sensational events, all hell will break loose in the human world. Can Lynlee keep both her new family and the world safe without getting swallowed up in the process?

About the author:

oliviaWhen Olivia Hardin started having movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long, the writing bug had bitten her, and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is, until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.

Olivia has attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Then one day she heard the term “road scholar,”‘ and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She’s also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic.

A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie.

When friendship is no longer enough, there’s always love.

Reviewed by www.mikishope.com This is a perfect 1st cookbook for children to start learning the art of baking. There is only one recipe but it comes with a storyline. Mimi wants to bake cookies and Grandma is going to teach her the correct way!! What fun–you have to be real careful with the measurements and ingredients and you also have to know when to let a grown up take over! This little book has it all covered. Actually I might even be able to bake cookies after having read this!! This is only one in a series of books with recipes-one to a book that this chef author has written. I suggest you read about the author below-it is intriguing. Then go and pre order this book for your little chef/baker!

Reviewed by Kirstin Pulioff at www.kirstinpulioff.com My Review – 5 Stars Since my daughter wants to be a chef when she grows up, I have read several cooking books and cookbooks with her, but nothing comparable to Mimi’s Adventure in Baking Chocolate Cookies. What a fabulous book! Not only does this book describe the technique and recipe for baking cookies, but it also focuses on a story. There are many ways to read this story. You can simple read it as a wonderful book. You can focus on the bright illustrations. The ingredients and steps make for the perfect math focus… and it also reads as an activity book that you can read while you bake. In every way, this book earns my 5 star review… And now, I’m going to bake some cookies.

Read more:

Amazon Reviewer Sue Ann B – “I love the illustrations throughout the whole book — the bright colors and the cute facial expressions will definitely keep a young child’s attention. I also like that the recipe is in the back of the book — because, knowing Addison, we will be making these cookies just the way that Mimi made hers!!!”

Adventures In All Things Food – “I applaud Alyssa Gangeri for her creative book and highly recommend this story to give children an opportunity to learn and experience baking for themselves. I truly hope she creates more stories like this to encourage children to tackle even more kitchen skills and recipes.”

The Mama Chronicles – “The story is short and easy to follow with your own little baker.  They will enjoy listening to the story and the illustrations are just right.  And the most fun part, the author adds in the recipe at the end of the book! ”

Lynchburg Mama – “I was excited to have the opportunity to have an excuse/reason to make a batch of cookies with my children so to kick things off, we pulled up the ebook on the tablet and read through the book. While the book is about a girl, the idea can be used even when you have boys! The end result is the same:  time with your kids, experience in the kitchen and delicious cookies!”

In Our Spare Time – ” They walk through the ingredients and the baking process and then share the recipe at the end of the book so you can make the cookies yourself. This was a fun read with bright, colorful illustrations that any child is sure to enjoy.”

Second Book To The Right – “RATING: 5 STARS (my daughters would actually like to give the book “one hundred thousand infinity” stars, but I told them it can only go up to 5). This was a great book to introduce kids to the world of baking, and gave them cute ways of doing things, like cracking an egg (without the shell going in too!), correctly measuring the dry ingredients, etc. We really enjoyed our time together in the kitchen that I normally would have avoided.”

Joy Makin’ Mamas –  ” Mimi’s Adventures in Baking Chocolate Chip Cookies presents kitchen processes and food safety in a warm, engaging storybook format. These aspects of learning to cook are extremely important, but also pretty boring, so a picture book is a great way to get kids to take in the information before they start playing with sharp things and working near a hot oven.”

A Mama’s Corner of the World – “I loved that the author offered a few “substitutions” and “add-ins” for her recipe–and encouraged readers to create their own too. Cooking is a creative process–and there is no 100%, set-in-stone formula.  Every “chef” has an opportunity to get creative, be inspired and make their own special masterpiece.”

Life With Katie – “Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? Seriously, if you don’t, well…I’ll still love you, but I might look at you weird. This is a great first cookbook for the kiddo in your life who just wants to learn how to make something delicious! With bright illustrations and a wonderful story, this book will capture your child’s imagination and with a yummy recipe and measuring, it will please any parent who is looking for a secret educational tool.”

Kraus House Mom – “Techniques are also addressed, how to level off the flour and packing brown sugar, in a way kids can understand. Stella was using the language from the book while we were making the cookies. Two thumbs up from all of them.”
