💜 Happy release day 💜

Angel Falling – Embers Duology Book Two by Victoria Larque

Can a fallen Angel and a risen Demon save the world?
Mihr is a branded traitor since saving the Demon Fane from Hell. But living on Earth, along with his Demon, has proven to be all he wants. As both of them come to terms with staying together and their growing feelings, they experience true freedom for the first times in their lives.
A chance encounter reveals that their escape from Hell has ripped into the delicate balance between the three realms, and disaster is about to strike.
Can they restore the tear between their worlds before it is too late? Before their new home is overrun by both, Heaven and Hell?

THE WAITING HOUSE: A Novel in Stories by @LisetteBrodey #amreading

💎 Happy new release 💎

THE WAITING HOUSE: A Novel in Stories

Once an opulent hotel for lovers of the Hollywood lifestyle, today the imposing building survives, somewhere, as an apartment house for those who wait. Not all know what they’re waiting for, but the residents live in flawed concert with those of undetermined existence, among relics of the past, as they wait for answers, for lost loved ones, and for purpose.

While the stories feature different characters, many of whom are recurring, each tale couples with its own unique reality … and is narrated by Conrad, the “grand master.” There is an overall story arc: part literary fiction, part Twilight Zone … both with a healthy dose of dark humor.

If you step inside, you’ll meet Ava Elisabeth, now in her 80s. After 40 years in Paris, she has returned. But why? Darah, the owner, is tormented by the sudden reappearance of her estranged mother, Millicent.

Kenny finds a way to overcome the despair of his missing wife. Fiona lives in the shadow of her once-famous, movie-star mother. Former Santa, Alejandro, punishes himself with solitude and sadness. A disturbed woman, Carolyn, waits for her TV prince to come. And Lee is tortured by random people who slide down walls near his fourth-floor apartment. Under the same roof, each soul has a different story … but all live in The Waiting House.

Author Ashley Amy #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Ashley Amy

Tell us a bit about yourself?

I am a small town Idahoan who grew up on a potato farm. I spent almost a decade being a military wife with my now ex-husband. I just had my fourth son with my current partner that my new road of life led me to. I’ve been an author since April 2019 and never looked back.

Book 1 is free.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I was an odd soul growing up. The girl who was friends with everyone but scribbled nonsense in her journal once in private. Stories began to build clear back then in my youth, so now I see I had always wanted it. I’m just embracing it now.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I have an obsession with Greek mythology—which most of my PNR books tie into in some way.

What are you working on now?

Currently, I’m working on two romcoms for December 2021.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

When I get hit with a block, I look around the room. The first thing I spot, I write into a sex scene. After I’ve written such an unorthodox piece, my mind functions better.

What are your hopes for the future?

One day, I hope to make a bestseller list with an individual piece.

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Editing is important. Don’t skip that step in your haste, and your eyes alone are not enough.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I’m just grateful for the ones who have stayed with me. When covid happened, I stepped back for a bit and took off most of 2020. Coming back into it, they waited. My tribe will always be them for their support. It’s what keeps me going now.

Preorder Brush Strokes by Sonja Djurisevic #amreading #poetry

This poetry collection is extraordinary in the way it interweaves the author’s emotions towards family, partner and life. It is a collection of all beautiful and some less beautiful memories of a gentle person, and it encompasses love, pain, and happiness. It will find its way into the hands of the readers and open up the whole new world. The poetry of this young author will touch you deeply and make you feel special. Poetry was always intended to touch people’s souls and make those who write it or read feel powerful and divine. The author’s goal was to achieve that effect on her readers.

Author K.R. Fajardo #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author K.R. Fajardo

Tell us a bit about yourself…

My name is K. R. Fajardo and I am an indie author from East Texas. I currently have 4 self-published books and many projects in the works. My genre of choice is fantasy but I also dabble a little in paranormal fantasy and paranormal romance. My interests include 80’s music (specifically 80s hair bands), reading(of course), RPG video games (Assassin’s Creed and the Witcher are my favs), and watching movies. Dr. Pepper is my caffeinated beverage of choice.

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

To be honest, I never considered it an option. Kind of like becoming a movie or rock star, it was one of those things that was reserved for the privileged few. I always loved reading and the escape it gave. And for years I had this one character running amok in my head, driving me crazy at night, but it wasn’t until my youngest child started to school and I found myself with some free time on my hands, that I decided to sit down and put some words on paper. One hundred and twenty thousand words later, K’s story was finally free. Shortly after that, I discovered self-publishing was a thing that existed, and fumbled my way through the process. And I am so glad I did. I have learned so much since then and met so many wonderful people from all over the world. It truly has been an adventure learning to be an author, but I don’t regret it one bit, and I never want to give it up. 

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

The Shadow Chronicles series is literally the voice in my head that would never shut up. K has rooted around in my mind for as long as I can remember. I think she is the embodiment of everything I wish I was. Strong, fierce, drop-dead gorgeous, and yet still vulnerable. And she is a vampire, because they have always fascinated me. Her story is unique in that it is told from the point of view of the other characters in the book. Her thoughts and feelings are never revealed, and that leaves her open to the interpretation of the reader. 

What are you working on now? 

Currently I am working on revising Stalking Fate for a rerelease with Butterdragons Publishing. The story is getting a complete overhaul with lots of new content that I think readers will enjoy. I also have several projects, including on Fae book and a paranormal romance in the works that will hopefully be ready for release next year.

Do you have any quirks while working? 

Silence. I am easily distracted, so no music or TV’s can be playing in the background. Also, I have developed the habit of lighting a candle while I work. I like the aromas they emit and find it soothing to have the flame flickering nearby.

What are your hopes for the future?

To keep writing stories. It is every bit as much of an escape as reading and it is my own world. Would I love to say that I will one day be able to quit my day job and just write, sure. But that is the dream isn’t it. If it is meant to be, it will be. In the meantime, I will just do me and have fun creating new worlds.

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Beware wolves in sheep’s clothing. In particular vanity presses. If someone offers to publish your book but then tries to charge you to do so, run. You can self-publish your book for a fraction of what those people are charging. Also beware all the so-called ‘coaches’ that are running around out there. Don’t get me wrong, there are some legit sites out there that will be of great help and many reputable coaches. But there are also just as many frauds. Social media can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. I have found many wonderful cover designers, editors, and formatters using these resources. I just recommend you do your research, speak to other authors, and interview any new prospective business before you send your money their way.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you so much for sticking by me. I have had to deal with a lot of personal tragedies the last couple of years. This year in particular has been devastating. And through all these hard times, it has been your words of encouragement and patience that has helped me pull through. Finally, I have found my way back to writing, and it is all because of you guys. I love and appreciate each and every one of you. And you all have a special place in my heart. 

Author Grace Nicholas #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Grace Nicholas

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Well, my name is Grace Nicholas. I grew up in southern Arkansas in a tiny town no one has ever heard of. 😂 I’ve lived in central Arkansas for the majority of my life. I’m a wife, mother of 2 crazy teenagers and one spoiled rotten pug, Buddy. I’ve been an avid 6-10 book a week reader since I was about 14 years old. 

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always wanted to be an author, but never knew where to start. About 3, almost 4 years ago I found the Facebook reader/author community and it opened up my whole world! 😲 After bumming around, joining groups and participating in those groups, I finally got on my first ARC team. From there I moved up to beta, then eventually alpha reader for a few authors. Brandi Bell, whom you all may know as Rose Alexander, finally wore me down, after 2 years, and convinced me to write a book with her. We wrote The Storm Queen together and it was one of the best experiences of my life. She taught me so much and it was a ton of fun because we were already such good friends!

What are you working on now?

Currently I’m working on another co-write with the lovely EJ Everette called The Reapings Serial. It’s a mini-series that will have episodes releasing every month, then every so often those episodes will be put in one volume and released as a full length novel with deleted scenes and secret POVs!

I’m also working on my first solo novel which is a sweet, second chance romance novel. Honestly, the cover was the inspiration for this story. As soon as I saw it, the characters started screaming in my head and the story has been flowing almost faster than I can type! 😂 I’m hoping to release it sometime around March.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I don’t think I really have any quirks while writing, other than needing it to be quiet. I do the majority of my writing when my husband is working and the kids are otherwise occupied. Though sometimes, I’ll write at night while my husband plays whatever game he has at that time on his PS5. As long as there isn’t much talking in the game, I can deal with it as background noise. If there is a lot of talking, then I pop in my AirPods and turn on my noise app. My go-to noise is a box fan, but sometimes I’ll switch it up to rain or a thunderstorm, depending on my mood or the scene. 

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to keep writing books until I can no longer type! My husband has the lofty goal of being a house-husband within 5 years 🙄, but I’ve told him that’s unlikely considering I’m a slow writer and don’t publish full novels that often. I’ve only published one so far, plus one episode of the mini-series and I’ve got a short story being released December 1st in the Once Upon a Twisted Christmas anthology. 

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Being a new author myself, I don’t really have much advice for other new authors other than to write what you know. Don’t try to write what you think everyone wants, or what everyone will read. It will seem forced to you, and it will read that way to readers. I learned that lesson the hard way. 

To my followers, I just have to say to hang in there! I promise I’m writing every day, I’m just not as fast as others. I still have a full time career and a family to take care of, so I write when I can. I love you all to pieces and I can’t express enough how much I appreciate your faith in me and your willingness to be patient with me. Hopefully I’ll be able to find more time to write and start publishing books more often! 💜💜💜
