Dearly Departed #review

Dearly Departed: A Reverse Harem Academy Romance (Afterworld Academy Book 1) by Katie May & Loxley Savage

°

All great stories start with a death.

In this case, it’s my own.

Instead of the pearly white gates and yellow brick road leading me to Heaven, my soul is chosen to join Afterworld Academy – an exclusive boarding school to train selected souls on how to manage the Afterlife.

Ghosts, Demons, Reapers, and Angels.

Classes on how to fly. Studies on the proper way to select souls. Weaponry. Premonition. Oh, and field trips to Hell.

Sounds peachy, right?

When souls turn up dead, I must work with my four sexy-as-sin mentors to uncover the truth of my new reality.

Things are about to take a deadly turn.

Welcome to Afterworld Academy where the price of admission…is your life.

°

°

Dearly Departed is book one of a four book series by bestselling authors, Loxley Savage and Katie May. This is a reverse harem romance meaning that the main character won’t have to choose between her love interests. This is medium-burn and does contain strong language and sexual themes. Oh, and death. Lots and lots of death. Book one will end in a cliffhanger.

°

°

*Note from Authors
The main character does pass away from cancer (which is how she ends up in the Afterworld Academy). Please keep this in mind while reading, especially if that may be triggering to you. We would love for you to read our book, but we want you to take care of yourself.

BLURB:
Several words can be used to describe Preston King.

Cruel.

Arrogant.

Depraved.

And the word that sent me running to England for a year.

Fiance.

Arranged marriages may sound like a thing of the past, but when billion-dollar fortunes are at stake, it’s the only way to go.

I had known my entire life I wasn’t free to choose my destiny, but I never thought Preston King would be the one I’d marry. Our families are the Montagues and Capulets of Wall Street after all. But even centuries-old bad blood can be forgotten when enough money
is involved.

Now I’m back from my self-imposed exile, a sophomore at Yale University, Preston’s domain. He’s the ruler on campus and determined to break me before I say ‘I do’.

Only I’m no longer willing to obey silently. If I must marry the jackass, I’m doing it on my own terms.

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m 32, I’m Romanian, and as my bio says, I love tea, anime, and I’m a romance fanatic. I especially love the fantasy and paranormal genres, although I won’t say no to a sexy contemporary from time to time.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I haven’t always wanted to become an author, no, mostly because I didn’t consider it an option. In my country, the publishing industry is very weak and it’s impossible to make a living out of writing. I’m actually a Political Science graduate, although I never did anything with my degree since I took up writing instead.

Basically, it was a lot of right circumstances that brought me to this place. I was always excellent at foreign languages and especially English and because I liked it so much, I ended up doing all my classes, even my superior education, in English and reading all my fiction in English. From there, it was only a small leap.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current series, The Academy of the Devil, is inspired a lot of my own experiences. The main character is an epileptic like me and the tribulations she suffers through are similar to what I’ve gone through in the past. Granted, I was never bullied to the point of having seizures, but I never went to a demonic school either.

The Academy of the Devil itself – as a building – is also loosely based on a Romanian castle, the Corvinesti Castle, which I like very much. For foreign readers, it’s the same place where the horror movie The Nun was filmed.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Right now, I’m wrapping up Academy of the Devil. After that I’ll be working on Enchanted Damnation, book 4 of my Accursed series. It’s an ambitious project because it has a historical vibe and I’m doing a lot of research into the Roman empire and stuff like that. But writing wouldn’t be fun if it wasn’t interesting and always the same.

While I’m working on Accursed 4, I’m also starting work on a new sci-fi academy series. I can’t say too much about that right now, since the cover reveal will be in my group in a few days.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

While I’m writing, I like to listen to epic music or Japanese music. It’s particularly inspiring for battles, confrontations or dramatic scenes. Did I mention I love writing grand scale confrontations? Because I do.

What are your hopes for the future?

My hopes for the future are pretty simple. To be able to keep writing for the rest of my life. To continue to share my stories with my readership. If I’m healthy enough, I fully intend to do that.

°

°

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

Publishing is tough right now. You need to think about what your target is and if you want to turn it into a full time career, be aware that it’s a marathon, not a sprint. 99% of the time, you won’t manage to succeed outright. You’ll have to spend on covers, especially if you’re not good at Photoshop, and you’ll get frustrated when you won’t make your money back. You’ll end up spending on NL services or ads and feel frustrated when you don’t see results. Don’t give up. Adapt. Study your market. Learn from what other authors are doing. Follow the market trends. Polish your blurbs. Get social. It takes a lot of time and effort, but you’ll see improvement.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you for picking up my books! I hope you enjoy my particular brand of insanity! I love writing crazy stuff and I’ve decided, now that I’m in my 30s, to see how crazy I can make my books 🙂 Join me in my FB group and tell what insanity you’d like to see in the future. I always love to hear from my readers.

Eve Brandt’s Den of Temptation

Author J.R. Thorn #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a reverse harem author and I have an unhealthy obsession with magical tattoos—and hot guys who are assholes that need to be tamed!

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always written and been creative in many forms of art and had work published before I was 10. I always knew I’d be an author but I never knew it would become a life passion and a full-time career.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I didn’t enjoy my college experience. When I first saw that academy was making a comeback, I took it as an opportunity to tell a college story that I wanted to tell. Friends I wanted to make and challenges to overcome made it an entirely new college experience—plus there are demigods, vampires, and a plethora of other supernaturals that just make life better!

°

°

What are you working on now?

I have two pen names, so I’m working on another academy on my other name, which I won’t reveal here, and I am also working on the sequel to Fortune Academy as well. I typically have two projects going on at the same time and between my two pen names I publish a book a month. I stay busy

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I’m easily distracted so I have noise-canceling headphones and I need to face a wall to write so all I can see are my words. It’s like immersing myself in a creative bubble. I do have prints of my books on the wall to give me something to glance at though that inspires me to keep going!

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I’m having my first baby in 3 months, so I hope to be a good mother and that she will love books as much as I do! I also have a plan to maintain my writing schedule. I know other authors who have children and still publish a book a month, so if they can do it then I know I can too.

°

°

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

Read indie bestseller books ranked 10k or better in the amazon store and understand what makes them special, then put your own spin on that niche and make it even better.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I feel like the growth of my storytelling skill has improved in the past 8 books I’ve written in my Blood Stone Universe and I want to thank my Thornies who have been with me from the beginning, as well as the new Thornies who still enjoy my older works! Love all of you guys.

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.

Call of the Siren (Obsidian Cove Supernatural Academy Book 1) by Jarica James

°

°
Obsidian Cove Prep was supposed to be Lennox Malia’s chance at freedom. Instead, it ended up as her own personal hell on Earth. Daily bullying and a severe lack of friends left her feeling hopeless and desperate for graduation.

That all changed one day when five guys showed up, very obviously interested in her. It all seemed too good to be true, and to say she was suspicious is an understatement. When secrets are revealed, and she discovers who she truly is, her new friends are there to help and guide her.

Navigating her last weeks of human high school would have been hard enough, but now she has to come to terms with her new powers and a new world, once again the outsider. Although, being the outsider may not be as bad as she thinks…if she gets to be with Calev, Tristan, Aeson, Evander, and Lachlan.

As her training begins, Lennox finally starts to find her inner strength. Unfortunately, her inner strength may not be enough to withstand the stalkers and attempted kidnappings that have come into her life along with her new powers. The danger worsens every day, leaving her with more questions than answers. With her powers still in chaos, they need to get to their new school, now more than ever.

Will starting at Obsidian Cove Supernatural Academy be the fresh beginning she’s been hoping for, or will it be too much of a change for Lennox and her new boyfriends to handle?

Call of the siren is intended for readers 18+ it is a reverse harem, paranormal, new adult novel. It contains some content that may be triggering for some.

Author Cassie James #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hey, y’all! My name is Cassie and I’m a full-time author and a reality TV junkie. When I’m not writing, I’m usually acting as professional servant to my dog, a three-year-old Great Pyrenees with serious attitude. (I swear, you’ve never heard a dog huff more than mine.)

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve known I wanted to write romance since the day I picked up my first romance novel. It was a Harlequin novel in my great-grandmother’s upstairs bedroom and I was absolutely not old enough to be reading it. But then I picked up another… and another… and well, I never put them down. I knew there was nothing I loved more than books, and nothing I wanted to write more than romance. I still have a handwritten copy of the first novel I wrote—a young adult romance so cringe worthy I hope it never sees the light of day!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Confession: I have a serious fear of a world where humans are overthrown by artificial technology. Yeah, I’m scared of robots, y’all. That means I spend much more time obsessing over them than I probably should, which is how my good friend and co-writer, Christine, and I started the discussion that led us to the idea that became The Thorns of Rosewood series. And yes, I do realize how bizarre it is that I chose an android for a main character—but I’m all about facing my fears!

°

°

What are you working on now?

I’m working on two projects right now. The Proxy, book two in The Thorns of Rosewood series, which I’m working on with a co-writer. Also, Saviors, which is the fourth and last book in my Pawns of Patience series.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Mumbling aloud. Sometimes, when I’m trying to get a line of dialogue just right, I’ll sort of say it under my breath the way I think my character would say it, just to see what needs to be tweaked. And yes, sometimes I do (very bad) accents.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

More books! There might even be a little something supernatural in the works…

°

°

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

Do the work! Before I was a writer, I spent some time working in the film industry, and the one thing that has always held true is that one thing sets apart some dreamers from others. Their willingness to work. It isn’t always easy but if it’s really what you love it is so, so worth it.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you. Thanks you times a million. I love writing books, and I love even more that I get to share them with all of you.

Cassie’s Sinners

Author Cate Corvin #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi! I’m Cate Corvin, and I write reverse harem romance. Usually it’s in paranormal, but I’ve lately had the itch to branch out into other genres… as long as it’s a #whychoose book! I love coffee, cats, and books, and my awesome family.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Absolutely! Writing has been a dream of mine since I was a kid, and it only took me 30 years to get here!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’m currently working on a series called Bonds of Blood, which is dark urban fantasy. The first three books will take place in an academy, but each trilogy in the series will be a new heroine in a new setting, and will all tie together into one large world. I really just wanted to write a huge, sprawling universe with gods, monsters, and slayers.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I’m just about to start Bad Blood, the second book in Bonds of Blood! This is the second book of the bully romance trilogy, in which revenge is taken and things start to get wild.

Do you have any quirks while writing? I always need a coffee and my cat, specific playlists, and I often make new notes as I go per book. By the end, they usually don’t resemble what I had originally planned out.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

To keep writing! My dream would be to just write constantly for the rest of my life, the ideas never stop.

°

°

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

Always keep writing. That’s the most important thing. You can plan everything down to a T, but in the end, actually writing is the most important part. And keep doing it over and over!

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Yes! Thank you all so much for reading and supporting indie authors. It’s one thing to know we’d never stop writing, but knowing that others have read and enjoyed our books, and that we’ve given you a fantasy escape for a little while is the best thing ever!

Author E.M. Moore #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

°

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

Let’s see, my real name is Erin, so feel free to call me that. If you call me E. M., I probably won’t even look up! 🙂 I’m obsessed with murder mystery shows, fairly certain I saw a chupacabra once, and have a 14-year-old senior dog named Max who doesn’t even like me.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes, always! I remember writing my first little story in Kindergarten that the teacher had to transcribe for me. It was titled The Three Witches. All throughout middle school and high school, I was obsessed with reading R. L. Stine (mainly the Fear Street series), so when I first started writing in high school, I wrote books like his.

I was told I should get a real job instead of being a writer, so I went to school to be a Librarian, did that for a few years, but for the past two years, I’ve been writing full-time, and I love every minute of it. I wouldn’t give it up for the world.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

So, kind of a cool story. I had this running daydream in my head all throughout middle school and high school. In this daydream, I was a famous basketball player. In fact, I was the first and only girl to ever play for the NBA. I placed myself in games, won championships, met Prince William, basically, this daydream was my retreat from the real world. I kept adding layers and layers. Eventually, I didn’t need the daydream so much, but when I thought about this daydream again, I realized what a great story it would make. Instead of putting myself in the NBA though, I put my MC, Tessa, in high school and had her challenge the boys for a spot on the boys’ team.

It’s got a lot of “girl power” aspects to it that I really love. I couldn’t be happier with the way the series turned out. 🙂

°

°

What are you working on now?

I actually just released the third and final book to The Ballers of Rockport High series, so I’m just about to start on my next series. The book is titled FREE FALL. It’s about a girl who falls in love with her brother’s best friends, who just so happen to be amazing football players.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I write in complete silence. I can’t stand any sort of noise while I’m writing. I also write in timed sprints, which helps keep me focused for a certain amount of time with tiny breaks in between.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to keep delivering quality books to my readers that they can’t wait to get their hands on. 🙂

°

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

Keep writing. If it’s what you truly love, keep at it. Research, research, and research. There are always places you can find the information you seek about how to do something specific in the publishing world, whether its ads or book covers, or editing. It’s hard work, it won’t come easy, but it pays off.

°

The Cimmerian Cage

by Cate Corvin

In the Cage, nothing is what it seems. It’s inescapable. And I’m dead in the sights of four insatiable and sexy men.

My name is Lu Darke. I’m a witch by birth and an arsonist by accident, but I never thought I’d find myself in a place like this. Cimmerian Reform Academy, called ‘the Cage’ by its students, was once an asylum, but now I’m forced to call it home.

My roommate hates me, the Headmistress has a sinister agenda, and worst of all, students have a habit of dying young and fast in the Cage. If I don’t watch my step, I might be the next to go, but help could come from dangerous places… for a price.

Roman and Shane were imprisoned for illegal shifting, and they look at me like they want to rip off my clothes with their fangs.

Professor Steele is a hard taskmaster whose special brand of punishment leaves me craving more.

And in the darkness beneath the Cage lurks the most deadly of predators- Locke, a vampire who walks through my dreams with a thirst for more than my blood.

Secrets lie in wait behind the black doors, students vanish overnight, and everyone hides what they really want. In the case of these four, however, what they want is crystal clear: me.

This is a steamy, medium-burn academy reverse harem romance trilogy. No choosing, no cheating- only unbridled passion and emotional angst in a haunted gothic mansion! Mature readers only.

Shifter Academy

by Scarlett Haven

My whole life, I’ve known there’s something different about me. I didn’t realize how different until four guys show up all claiming that they are destined to be my mates.

They’re not human, and they say I’m not either.

But if I’m not human then what am I?

Now I’m forced to go to a school where I don’t belong and am reminded of it everyday.

Creatures I never imagined were real that used to give me nightmares are everywhere I turn.

The world that once existed is gone.

Will anything ever be like it was again?

Chosen Academy

by Delia Stewart

I used to be your run-of-the-mill Los Angeles teenager. Middle of the pack in looks, popularity, and intelligence. Literally nothing special.

And then we moved to New York City and I couldn’t get back to normal no matter how much I might want to.

Instead of normal, my average day had me talking to a ghost in my bedroom, chatting with my freaky tarot-reading neighbor as she babbled about prophesies, and being escorted to and from school by the two hottest guys I’d ever seen. The kind of guys who’d never even have spoken to me in LA.

Of course, I couldn’t just go to a new school and make a few friends, couldn’t find a cute boy to take me to a dance or a football game like a normal girl. No, I had to stumble into whatever insanity my life had become, with its underground academies, kids with terrifying powers, and some ancient prophesy that made everyone believe I was “the one.” As if this was some Matrix redux.

The problem is, the longer I’m living this new life, the more I’m starting to believe what everyone is saying about an ancient evil rising from beneath the city.

But I don’t think I’ll ever believe I’m the only one who can stop it…

Chosen for Sight is a serialized reverse-harem paranormal story featuring magic, demons, and plenty of swoon-worthy heroes!

The Arcane Academy

by Erin Cain

~ Welcome to Arcane Academy ~

Growing up among non-magical folk, I never thought I was anything special. Sure, I had magic, but the powers had diluted over the generations.

I never even dreamed of going to a magic academy – I didn’t have the money or the power. Not until I was granted a scholarship.

But Arcane Academy isn’t exactly welcoming for someone like me. Old magical families hold the power and not everyone is happy to have someone like me in their midst.

Three guys especially single me out. They try to intimidate me, but I won’t let them.

I belong here. Just as they do.

When one of the guys takes it a step too far, my magic erupts like never before.

I might be something special after all… And the guys see it too.

They all want me now. And no one is laughing.

The Arcane Academy series follows Izzy’s adventures in a prestigious magic academy.

Norsemen Academy

by Skye MacKinnon

There were three men in my mind. One in the past, two in the present. How was a girl supposed to think like that?

Lainie never expected to be admitted to the prestigious Time Travel Academy.

She never expected to study runes, ancient languages and meet real life Vikings.

And she certainly didn’t expect to fall for her teacher… and a Viking… and a mysterious archivist.

When a forbidden jump in time goes wrong, Lainie will have to draw on everything she’s learned to make her way back into the present – and into the arms of her men.

A full-length steamy reverse harem full of action, intrigue and hot Vikings, set in both past and present. Includes resources to learn basic runes and Old Norse!

Previously published as a serial. This book combines all five episodes and includes a bonus scene.

Fairy Godmother In Training

by Ellabee Andrews

As a fairy living in a small town, my goals are pretty simple: go to the community college, own a coffee shop, and live my life drama-free. But all that changes when my name is chosen to receive a full scholarship to Aradia, the most prestigious supernatural academy in the world. On a dare, I had entered, never expecting to be chosen, yet here I am.

Surrounded by the best of the best, I feel like the small fish in an ocean full of sharks, until three handsome guys and my sexy Succubus roommate come to my rescue.

With new friends and the real Fairy Godmother as my mentor, I may just survive this, that is if someone doesn’t kill me first. So much for living drama-free.

This is a reverse harem romance with a female in the harem.

The Marked Series

by G. Bailey & Cece Rose

Is being marked with just one of the powers enough? Is being marked with six? What about being marked with all twelve?

When Mackenzie’s seventeenth birthday comes around, she planned to spend a few years at the school for the marked learning about her new powers, and then leaving and living her life. But nothing goes as planned when she attends the marking ceremony and all twelve marks appear.

Kenzie lives in a world where being marked with six powers is normal, being marked with seven or more is rare. But being marked with twelve? Well, that’s unheard of.

With learning about her new powers, the last thing Kenzie needs to worry about is falling for her hot teacher. Not to mention the unneeded distractions of the sexy twins, the jerk in all her classes, and her older brother’s best friend who finally seems to notice her.

Romance and marked powers are never a good mix, not when there are people who desire her for more than her heart.

Kenzie may not know, understand or want her twelfth power, but someone does.

This is a reverse-harem complete series with exclusive bonus scenes.

The complete Marked Series contains:

#1 Marked by Power

#2 Marked by Pain

#3 Marked by Destruction

#4 Exclusive bonus scene
