Tell us a bit about yourself

*this makes me nervous*
Okay, a little about myself? What can I say that hasn’t already been said before? I’m a Scottish/Irish Mexican mix of a person, and live in Mexico with my husband and son in a small town surrounded on every side by mountains and volanoes. I’m a bit of an introvert, but I’m trying to break out of that shell and make friends for myself. I loooove anything and everything that has to do with the ocean. I seriously wish I lived by the beach. I have two pet goldfish (Frankenfish and Jordan) and a pet guinea pig named Jacob Kawalsky. I’m pretty open and will probably answer any question haha.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve wanted to be an author since I was 12 or 13 years old. It’s kind of when my love for books started. My mom says I’ve always been a bookaholic, but I remember that books didn’t start to really, truly impact me until I started middle school and that’s when I started dabbling in poetry and writing stories for manga. It just stuck with me. I loved it, still do.

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current series is… *counts on fingers* Okay, well I have a lot of current series but the most recent one I published (Slave to Ice & Shadows, Royal Lies) is a spin off to Royal Secrets. I just really wanted to write from the point of view of a female main character who was different from the rest. But overrall, the idea of this whole world came to me because of my love for mermaids, and because I thought it would be fun to have a type of “I look like royalty and am going to pretend to be her for a while” type story for myself. (Lizzie McGuire/Monte Carlo, anyone?) hahahah.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Right now I’m working on a cowrite with someone who has been my best friend since we were 15. It’s a secret project and I can’t say much about it except that it’s out of my comfort zone and going to be a contemporary romance series. I’m also working on book three of Origins of the Six series with my coauthor, AK Koonce, as well as book three of Royal Lies.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Hmm… I wouldn’t really call it a quirk, but I have to have absolute silence when I’m writing. I’m one of those people who can’t concentrate with noise in the background or any little bothersome thing. I have to be in a comfortable position, so that means sweatpants or pajamas, and if it’s cold warm socks, while I sit on a pillow and am covered in my mermaid tail blanket. I also can’t write in long sleeves for some reason. And I have to have something to drink and/or snack on in front of me or else I’m lost.
Once, I couldn’t write a scene because the goldfish kept pushing the rocks around in their tank and that was just way too much noise for me hahahah.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

So–and I think a lot of authors might have this–I have a list of “author” goals. It’s a mental list, mind you, that I started when I knew I wanted to publish books. I won’t go into super detail about what’s on this list, I don’t want anyone to think I’m super delusional or overly ambitious (is there such a thing?), but right now what I want/hope for is to cconnect with fans. I really would like to go to an author con somewhere and meet other authors, meet fans, sign books, give out swag. That’s one of my ultimate goals for next year.

°

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

I would suggest, write what you love and make sure it comes from the heart. Also, don’t give up. Writing is HARD, but you have to keep doing it. Even if you feel down or sad or like you aren’t good enough, you ARE. I know it may not seem like it and I’ve felt that way a lot, I still feel that way sometimes (most times lol), but it really is a very rewarding career. Even if your first paycheck is only a few dollars, I like to look at it like “I have a few people out there who know my name, who read my story, and that’s enough.”

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

To my readers, I probably don’t say this enough because I’m always busy, but I just want to thank you for picking up my book, for reading, for reviewing, for recommending. It means the world to me and it’s everything I’ve ever wanted out of an author career. Please, if you feel intimidated or scared to send me a message and you really want to DON’T. I looove receiving messages from you guys, even if it’s just a quick “I really liked your book”, it makes my day so much better and I WILL reply. Probably not right away, but I will. I promise. 🙂

#Preorder Leaving Summerland by Kathryn Moon

Leaving Summerland: A Reverse Harem Romance (Summerland Series Book 3) by Kathryn Moon

°

°

Settling in Summerland was easy. Staying will be harder.

With every week in her new home Lucy realizes the divide between herself and her divine neighbors is wider than she realized. Nightmares plague her sleep, whispering locals leave her paranoid, and the secrets keep piling up when Jack and Liam leave town unexpectedly.

Is the cost of staying in a world where she doesn’t belong, worth the rewards of the men she’s met along the way?

Lucy must fight for her place in Summerland, and possibly even Summerland itself in the action packed conclusion to the Summerland stories.

Tell us a bit about yourself

– Well, where to begin… I’m Darcy Ray and this is my Pen Name. My real Identity is a secret so you might as well call me a superhero! I work in the medical field and I’m currently enrolled in nursing school due to graduate in November. I have 2 four-legged fur babies and I’ve been married since 2011 to my elementary sweetheart(awwwww)! I’m a southern gal who grew up in the hood, so I love deeply but will definitely stick up for what I believe in. Some of my favorite things in live besides books include sweet tea, Red bull, and fried chicken! I’m also a pretty open book, so if you wanna know anything further, I’m always willing to answer ❤

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

– Honestly, no. I wanted to become a Doctor or Teacher. Both I’m still striving to be. I have a knack for wanting to help people and I’m very compassionate about other peoples well beings. I mean, sure growing up, I always thought it would be cool to write a book and get it out there, but that thought never seemed real. I only knew of Big time Authors and never heard the term “Indie Authors”. However, back in 2015, I started reading again and I some how stumbled across the RH community. I dived so deep and I never wanted to emerge from the awesome worlds these authors have created. I started being a Beta and even and Alpha. Those two amazing authors who I helped inspired me and made me realize, I could be there one day.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

– Ha! Thats a good question. I honestly wanted a book where all the bad things happened. I was tired of reading the same thing over and over again. Noone wrote about periods or using illegal drugs. My FMC is an Escort, most wouldnt touch that because its trashy. So I wanted to break rules and do things my way. Thus Mafias Kiss.

°

What are you working on now?

– I’m curing working on Mafias Embrace, which is book two of the Lethal Beauty and Smoking Steel Series. I finished a short story for an Anthology, and I have like three other series/duets planned to come out by the end of next year.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

– I need chaos to write. Like loud music, people talking on Discord, and the TV on. It makes me concentrate. Weird I know! I also have to have a visual for almost EVERYTHING I describe. My Pintrest is full of stuff!

°

What are your hopes for the future?

– I plan on graduating this year and taking a year off school per my husbands request and just write. I also plan on improving my skills as an author and grow my audience. Hell, I even hope to become a best selling author one day.

°

°

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

– LOL! I’m still a newbie and I’m also learning as I go. But if I had to give advice? Don’t give up. Write your book from your soul and not what everyone else wants it to be. People can feel that shit when they read. Also support everyone. You are no better or less than anyone else in this community. Well unless your a dick.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

– Thank yall so fucking much for supporting me! I know some of yall may not like my book for whatever reason, but I still appreciate the fact you took a chance on me. I do read reviews and I try honing my skills to make them better. For those who are cheering me on, I fucking love yall! Yall keep me going!!!

Goddess Claimed (Claimed by the Goddess Book 4) by Rozie Marshall

Water, Fire, and Air

Only Elementals remain.

I think I’m getting the hang of this and things have settled into a nice rhythm. I have uncovered more information on opening the portals. I have three men left to claim, and then we begin to journey around to open the portals.

Ashe has been the hardest to get through to, but he’s opened up a lot. Ty is still my sweet innocent one. While Zeph is a total unknown still. We have only a few weeks before the first portal must be open, and the race is on.

The only thing that worries me; is playing pass the Luna out in the open where anyone might see. Well that, and the assassins still hot on our tails.

*Warning this book is intended for 18+. It is a fast burn Reverse Harem series, with a cliffhanger. This book contains lots of M/M interactions, BDSM, DD/Lg, and other explicit sexual scenes some readers may find offensive.

Dances with Raptors (Dinoverse Book 1) by Poppy Woods

The next matriarch has been chosen. . .

Sage has never wanted anything other than the freedom to live her own life, but when she is chosen as the next Matriarch of her people, everything changes. Sent on a journey to pass the tests of her ancestors, Sage must find her place in this world even though she doesn’t know if she believes in the very spirits who chose her for the position.

As if her life isn’t complicated enough, she finds herself on the run with a pack of raptor shifters. Sage’s newfound allies are dangerous predators but the attraction she feels to them is undeniable.

With a new threat to the peninsula, Sage has her work cut out for her. No one said being the Matriarch would be easy.

Can she make it back to her people with her body–and her heart–in tact? Can she stop the traders who threaten her very way of life?

With Kishil, Talon, and Elu at her side, maybe she can . . .

*This is a reverse harem #whychoose romance set in the dinoverse. Due to steamy dinoshifters this story is not suitable for anyone under 18.

Rexes & Robbers (Dinoverse Book 2) by Kendra Moreno

65 Million Years Ago,
Dinosaurs walked the earth.
People think that a meteor or some super volcano wiped them all out, or that aliens saved them like a holy arc coming from the sky. Some think that they had their time and were selected for extinction.
The thing is, fossils only show those that died. . .
Dinosaurs still walk among us, hidden in human form, bidding their time until they’re able to reveal who they are. Humans are always placed at the top of the food chain.

Nothing could be further from the truth. . .

#Sale Hunted by Shadows by Erin O’Kane

Hunted by Shadows: Shadowborn Series Book One by Erin O’Kane

°

They say not to jump at shadows. That’s all well and good, but what if you are being hunted by one?

Trying to escape her past, Ari is working to atone for her actions and have a normal human life. The only problem with that? She isn’t human. Unlike most werewolves, she avoids as much contact with the supernatural world as possible, building a life for herself in the human world.

Until one day her past catches up with her, and she is forced to immerse herself in the supernatural world. Offered protection from the local wolf pack, she is forced to accept it, but nothing in the supernatural world comes for free.

For highly independent lone wolf Ari, this is her worst nightmare, especially as several Alpha males start vying for her affections. Ari will have to decide whether her independence is more important to her than her life.

*Please note this is an 18+ reverse harem novel and may include triggers for some readers*

In helping someone I love, I lost my life. Or did I?

Cut off from my body, I live in the home of a god who’s willing to train me, to help me fully embrace my powers, both as a witch and as a reaper. But while I lay in a coma, the men I left behind suffer, desperate to find a way to bring me back.

Interview

Author Carrie Whitethorne #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi, I’m Carrie Whitethorne, USA Today bestselling author of paranormal and urban fantasy romance. I write everything from second chance love to fated mates, all with a mythological twist.

I’ve been self published for three years, and started out with a Fae romance. This developed into something of a Saga, that I followed up with an Egyptian mythology reverse harem series.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always loved to write, but I never dreamed I’d ever be published.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current series is a Wizard of Oz reverse harem. But this isn’t the Oz you know. 100 years have passed since Dorothy returned home, and lots of things have changed.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I’m currently moving between a Military reverse harem series for my contemporary pen name, Shae Banks, and an urban fantasy series I hope to get out early next year.
The fantasy is an interesting mix of witches, demons, and many other mystical races and their fight against a common enemy.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I flit about a lot before I settle on a project. I’ll have something in mind, outline it, then someone entirely unrelated to that story will pop into my head and I’ll set that story up too. This is usually how I end up with two projects running at once.

°

°

What are your hopes for the futur?

To reach more people with my work and deliver the books they want to read.

°

°

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

Save for the editor. Take the advice. Accept criticism and learn from it. Keep going.

This isn’t an overnight success story. It’s easier than traditional publishing, but the hurdles are high.
Your first book won’t be the book you produce in two years time. You will learn. You will grow. You’ll get better and your readers will see it and love you for it.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you.
It’s my readers and their feedback that keeps me writing.

Tell us a bit about yourself

– I live in Michigan with my four cats, which is why I call myself a crazy cat lady in training. I’m from a family of readers and writers.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

– I’ve wanted to write for as long as I can remember. It’s been a part of me, just like breathing, since I was very, very young.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

– My current series is a kinky retelling of fairytales, and the inspiration was both the fairytales themselves and my co-author, Scarlett Snow. Sometimes it’s nice to have fun and do something unexpected with well-worn stories that everybody knows.

°

What are you working on now?

– At the moment, I’m working on the second of the Everafter Academy books, as well as a bunch of short stories for upcoming anthologies.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

– I think I’m a pretty boring writer when it comes to quirks. Sometimes I like to have music while I write (I often make playlists specific to the project at hand), and sometimes I don’t. I can’t have the television on when I’m writing, if that’s a quirk. The only think I can think of is that if I know I’m waiting for a call or for someone to show up at my place, I can’t concentrate enough to write, and that kills me.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

– I hope that the rest of the Everafter Academy series is received just as well as the first book, and I hope to continue writing with Scarlett for a very long time to come.

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

– It’s rough, man, and getting with a “traditional” publisher isn’t the glory that it used to be. I prefer independent publishing, where I can be in control of my product from start to finish, and where the only authority I need to bow to is myself, my co-author and the Almighty Zon (since Amazon is pretty much the only game in town if you want wide exposure).

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

– hank you so much for your kindness and the wonderful response to my books so far. I hope you stay with me in the years to come. There are so many more stories I want to tell you.

There really isn’t much to tell. I am a dog mom. I am a strong believer of coffee. When I’m not writing, I teach or read.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No. I have always wanted to be a teacher. I love learning how children work and how their minds learn. It’s so enjoyable to listen to their stories.

°

(Temporary cover)

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Family. I grew up all over as a military brat and my family is and will forever be my inspiration.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I have the other two books in the Dè Danann series. I have a few more fantasy/Rh series I am writing as well as some stand alone and some anthologies.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Usually I put on Critical Role and eat lots and lots of ice.

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope I get to keep writing these amazing stories and people enjoy them.

°

°

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

Jump in full force. Find an author you know and ask them to be your mentor. I have a great group of women that I am proud to be associated with and they are just amazing. I can go to them for anything.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I want to first and foremost say thank you. As readers you can choose any book you want to read and you chose mine. I am truly humbled and honored.

Blurb:
If there is one thing I have learned it is that life is never fair, even for a dé danann witch. This past year has proven that more than anything. After losing my mother to cancer and the man who I thought was the love of my life dumping me for his career, I am well aware of how cruel life could be. Hi, my name is Viola Octavia Magee. This is my not so happily ever after. It all started long before I was even born with a prophecy:
“In her 25th Winter, on the coldest night,
a witch shall become complete.
Paired with lupus, angelus, and daemonium,
none of whom compete.
Power brings responsibility.
Corruption she shall seek.
Coven and its elders.
The end they shall meet.
A tainted hierarchy births an empty throne.
The Queen of the Tuatha Dé Dannon takes her seat.
A dove replacing vultures.
Witch kind shall be complete.”
If only I had known these words earlier…
