Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a mum of three, full time writer and multi-tasker. I’m a total homebody who loves reading and gaming. The Xbox and board games are my go-to pastime activities. My ideal night out would be a yummy meal and a movie. Ideal night in would be to curl up with a book or gather around the huge dining table for a game of Lords of Waterdeep or Cutthroat Caverns. Basically, I’m a total geek, and so are my family.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes, but back in the day it felt like a dream. I didn’t believe it would happen. I spent my spare time writing short stories and reading voraciously. The birth of independent publishing gave me the hope I needed to get my stories out there.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I watch a lot of supernatural dramas and shows, and I love mythology. I have a huge collection of books on mythology. I also tend to have very vivid story-like dreams, and I draw inspiration from all of these sources. My current work in progress is no different.

°

°

What are you working on now?

The Deadside Reapers is a series about…you guessed it, reapers. But not your typical reapers. These reapers are demons born of Lilith’s bloodline. You’ll find fallen angels, loup garou, witches Grigori, a talking python and a sassy ghost.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Oh gosh, yes, although I didn’t know this until my daughter pointed it out. I was wincing super hard the other day and she asked me what was wrong. I’d literally just wrote that the heroine was wincing. So apparently, I make faces based on what I’m writing. Thank god she hasn’t caught me writing a sex scene!

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I just want to continue to write stories that take readers on wonderful journeys. It makes me so happy when readers enjoy my books and it makes me happy to write them.

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

Do your research before you hit publish. Make sure you know the market you intend to write in. Don’t just hit publish and expect your book to sell. There are way too many great books languishing on Amazon unseen due to lack of visibility. Write a great book but do the work to make sure it gets seen. Best of luck!

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you so much for reading my books. Thank you for supporting me with your kind words and your encouragement and thank you for being as crazy about my characters as I am. I love you.

🌠 The Witches Consorts 🌠

by Eva Chase

Every witch knows the rules: Stick to your own kind. Never reveal your powers to outsiders. Take a consort from the witching families or kiss your magic good-bye forever.

For years I’ve been quiet, obedient Rose Hallowell. I accepted the man my stepmother chose for me. But I never stopped missing my long-ago friends: brilliant Kyler, stoic Seth, passionate Jin, daredevil Damon, and Gabriel, whose self-assured warmth brought us all together.

Now we’re back on my childhood estate to arrange my marriage. The boys I grew up with? They’re still in town—and they haven’t forgotten me either. And damn if they haven’t grown up well.

They’ve got no magic, no place in my life. But they’re charming and sweet and infuriatingly hot, and I can’t seem to stay away. The more I try to resist, the more secrets I uncover about my family, my betrothal, and everything I thought was true about the witching world.

I’ve been lied to. I’ve been betrayed. So to claim my magic and my happiness, I’ll break every rule there is—and then some.

Don’t mess with this witch. Every rose has thorns.

*This is a steamy reverse harem paranormal romance series. Take a dollop of gothic atmosphere, add a heaping of romantic angst, and mix it up with five enticing young men and a passionate witch just coming into her own.*

But one slip is all it takes for the façade to unravel.

Exiled to Midnight, a district filled with moonlight and monsters, Serenity must find her place among the supernaturals and freaks. Being drafted into the Nephilim Protectorate, the only line of defence between humans and dangerous magic, means proving her worth while battling to control her demon hunger. It won’t be easy, but with the help of the protectorate men, and their terrifying charismatic leader, it may just be possible, because a malevolent force is rising, and Serenity may be the only one with the power to stop it.

💫 The Witches Rebels💫

by Sarah Piper

A witch outrunning her past. Five smoldering-hot guardians. And the dark secret that could destroy them all…

Blackmoon Bay is a city of monsters. Surviving here means never leaving home without a sharp stake. It means keeping secrets, even from friends. And unless I want the Hunters finding me again, it means my witchcraft stays on permanent lockdown.

Good policy—until the night I accidentally resurrect a dead girl, rekindling my magic and drawing the Bay’s most dangerous men to my doorstep.

Asher, the bad-boy incubus. Darius, the cunning, oh-so-sexy vampire. Emilio, the wolf shifter with a big heart and a treacherous past. Ronan, the only demon I trust with my soul. And Death himself, bound to my magic for reasons I don’t understand.

Together they’ve sworn to protect me from the evil out there, but it’s not the evil out there I’m worried about.

A shadow lurks inside me, black and deadly as a bomb.

And I’m pretty sure my magical mishap just lit the fuse.

I’m Gray Desario. Witch. Survivor. Occasional bringer of chaos. And tonight? The darkness is coming…

The Witch’s Rebels is a steamy reverse harem paranormal romance and urban fantasy series featuring five smoldering-hot guys and the kickass witch they’d kill to protect. If you like sexy forbidden romance, dark magic, and heart-pounding supernatural suspense, this witchy adventure will leave you spellbound.

Diagnosed with a rare terminal illness, I’ve spent over half my life in the Strand Corporation’s state-of-the-art treatment facility. I keep my chin up and do everything the doctors order, praying one day I’ll walk out of here in perfect health.

🐺 Wolves of Crimson Hollow 🐺

by M.H. Soars & Michelle Hercules

What if Red Riding Hood didn’t fall in love with one Big Bad Wolf but three?

I’ve been a city girl my entire life. But when my grandmother got sick, I didn’t think twice before packing my bags and moving to Crimson Hollow, a small town in West Virginia. Two years later, I’m still here and finally adjusting to the quiet life.

Only there’s nothing ordinary about this town.

A walk in the woods proved almost deadly and left me changed forever. I was attacked by a rogue wolf, and now, I belong to the Crimson Hollow pack. I’m a shifter.

To make matters worse, my arrival in the pack created a rift among the wolves, making it impossible to tell friend from foe, including the three alpha’s sons who have taken a keen interest in me. If dealing with all that wasn’t enough, wolves are disappearing. We must discover who is behind it, or there won’t be a pack left to fight over.

🏹 Chronicles of Arcana 🏹

by Debbie Cassidy

If Buffy and Angel could have banged without him going all evil, then we would have had Wilomena Bastion.

Dragons suck, like literally suck the life out of you if you let them. Trick is not to look them directly in the eyes, like ever. So, the day Wila finds herself staring into the most dangerous Draconi’s pretty, emerald peepers, she knows she’s royally fucked.

No one said saving a bunch of kids from being served up as treats to the dragon liege was going to be easy. Options are limited—immediate execution or servitude, and Wila prefers to have her head remain firmly on her shoulders.

Now, the self-professed dark avenger must work to bring down a resistance of demons hell-bent on making life difficult for the dragon liege. And, if that wasn’t bad enough, her new position comes with a partner, the dragon liege’s favoured demon enforcer; a creature of fire, fury and washboard abs who—let’s face it—is just gonna cramp her style.

With the help of a ghostly receptionist, a talking dog and the thing that lives in the basement, Wila will be forced to take on a most dangerous task. Add a dragon prince, a sexy troll blood and a billionaire mage into the mix, and things are about to get even more complicated. It looks like some serious brooding is on the menu, because for the first time in forever, Wila isn’t sure she’s up to the job.

A city filled with monsters needs a woman who can kick ass, and Wilomena Bastion is just the gal for the job.
