Sprout: A High Fantasy Reverse Harem (The Blooming Courts Book 2)

A deadly disease has spread through the Blooming Courts of Tuatha.

The louloudi are meant to flourish for a thousand years before they return to the Earth. Death has been a distant foe for so long, no one spares it any thought. Until now. As sickness sweeps through the kingdom, with the cure always just out of reach, the courts have never been filled with so many blossoms. Even in death, they breathe life. 

Ila Slystina has been raised in the confines of the Orchidasi Kingdom, wanting for nothing, hidden away like some sparkling treasure, but she dreams of so much more. When she’s caught returning from a forbidden trip, her mother, the Queen, punishes her the only way she sees fit. 

Ila is sent on her season far earlier than she should be. Now, she’s being paraded through the twelve courts like a prized cow and she wants nothing more than to escape. But along the way, she just might get more than what she bargained for. 

After all, the courts aren’t the only things that must bloom . . .

#Review of Fires of Hatred by #ErinOkane

Fires of Hatred: The War and Deceit Series, Book One by Erin O’Kane

‘My name is 625. 
At least, that’s the number branded into my skin, the only identity I have.
My real name, whatever it was, was stripped from me when I was sold into slavery at age eight.
I am now 20, and no more than property, my only purpose working in the palace.
Until the day I meet him.’

The Elves and Humans have been at war for millennia. 
No one even remembers why or how it started.
When a slave girl is sent to clean in a forbidden part of the castle, she stumbles across a secret which could cost her life.
A captured Elf, sworn enemy of the Human people, forced into making Elven weaponry to fight against his own kin.

Will they see past the differences between their races and help each other to survive?

Or will their union only serve to stoke the fires of hatred?

This book is intended for audiences 18+ and contains some scenes of violence that some may find distressing.

Author Marie Robinson #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I live in the Pacific Northwest in the United States of America, with my beer brewing husband, frost giant toddler, and two senior dogs. I’m an excitable introvert, which means if you put enough sugar in me, I’ll extrovert until I hit a wall and crash. I’ve got an eclectic background, from retail to pastry chef to traditional publishing, I’m like a butterfly who wants all the pretty flowers. Now I’m solidly an author and loving it. I squeeze in hiking on my days off (what are days off?) and I love to travel to new places. I’m pretty candid and I typo a lot. Like, so much.

Book one is permanently free on Amazon

Have you always wanted to become an author?

The first story I remember writing was in second grade with my teacher Mrs. Will. It was totally original–about these three pigs who lived in houses and had to defend themselves against a bad wolf. Yeah, I was totally writing fanfiction of Three Little Pigs. So, yes, I’ve always wanted to be an author—as well as an astronaut zoologist on the moon, still working on that one though.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’ve got three series in the works but for my most recent release, Raven’s Flight, I adore epic fantasy. Epic fantasy is the genre that holds my heart and I have a ton of stories waiting to be told. There’s something about a new original world with magic and romance that makes me squeal and read for days. It turns out I’ll write for days as well! I love resilient characters who go through difficult times and have to struggle with their choices in novels, so I wanted to write that.

What are you working on now?

I’ve just wrapped up book one in my The Raven and Crown series, and book two isn’t out until later 2020. Which means I’m currently working on Obsession and Fawn. Obsession is a dark bully/villain reverse harem with Mary Wollstonecraft, Frankenstein, Van Helsing, and Jekyll. It’s season one Supernatural combined with Sherlock—scary, sexy, smart. My other project, Fawn, is a co-written dark mafia shifter reverse harem (say that five times fast!). It’s so, so damn fun and Elaina Jadin and I are having a ton of fun with it.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I have to have headphones on. Something about putting headphones on tells my brain it’s “go time.” I also like to have snacks, so I’m trying to lean closer to healthy snacks. Which isn’t really working because the husband just brought home three boxes of my favorite Girl Scout Cookies. I listen to music, but it can’t have any audio or be instrumental covers of familiar songs because it’ll distract me. I try to listen to music that matches the tone of the book or scene I’m working on. I’ve got a fantasy playlist, a romantic playlist, and a suspense playlist.

What are your hopes for the future?

I mean, other than the world not dying? I’m hoping to publish nine books this year, or three trilogies. It all depends on life and how well each book is received. I’d love to become a NYT Best Seller, but I’m not holding my breath. I just want to keep writing the stories I love.

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

This job is hard. I’ve been doing it for years. If you want to make this your career, you have to treat it like a job. You can’t expect to put a little bit of effort in and see the same success your favorite authors are having. You can tell the stories you have inside of you and you can make it into a career, but it’s going to take more than just writing a book and that’s something a lot of new authors don’t really understand.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I love you all! Tell everyone you know to read my books. Seriously. Stalk them until they do. Leave post-it notes everywhere. Tweet them every hour. Email them daily. Okay, don’t go that extreme. Probably. I’m not responsible for your fanatics! But seriously–I prioritize series based on interest and preorders. If you want one book series sooner than another, vote by preordering! And don’t forget to review the books you read, even if it’s the minimum word count that Amazon requires. Reviews are our bread and butter.

A deadly disease has spread through the Blooming Courts of Tuatha.

The louloudi are meant to flourish for a thousand years before they return to the Earth. Death has been a distant foe for so long, no one spares it any thought. Until now. As sickness sweeps through the kingdom, with the cure always just out of reach, the courts have never been filled with so many blossoms. Even in death, they breathe life. 

Ila Slystina has been raised in the confines of the Orchidasi Kingdom, wanting for nothing, hidden away like some sparkling treasure, but she dreams of so much more. When she’s caught returning from a forbidden trip, her mother, the Orchidasi Queen, punishes her the only way she sees fit. 

Ila is sent on her season far earlier than she should be. Now, she’s being paraded through the twelve courts like a prized cow and she wants nothing more than to escape.

Her mother wants her to collect power. 
But Ila finds herself collecting hearts instead. 

With death surrounding her on every side, and new dangers sprouting up at every turn, can Ila learn to balance the mischief that sings in her soul with her duty to her people? 

After all, the courts aren’t the only things that must bloom . . .

Author S.A. Mackenzie #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m S.A. Mackenzie, the S is for Sara. I am a mom to a one year old little rascal and a furbaby mom to a silly rabbit. I’m married to a big ol’ bearded man who likes to act tough but is really a huge softy. I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. I love to meet people but I also would rather curl up in my room reading a book by myself. I’ve always had an imagination that was far bigger than anyone else I knew. I would lay in bed and just day dream different worlds and lives that I wanted to live.

Saintly Virtues is on Amazon for preorder for $2.99! On March 9th at release the price will go up to $3.99

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Not really. I had thought about it from time to time since my imagination is always getting away from me but I always had an excuse about why I couldn’t or shouldn’t do it. It took having a baby and losing myself in being a mom before I looked up one day and realized that it was something I needed to do. I needed to write my stories and give myself an identity outside of being a mom. My excuses no longer seemed relevant when I realized that nothing was holding me back but myself.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

The Seven Sins and Saints series was first inspired by the song Hallelujah. I became obsessed with the story in the lyrics and listened to every version I could find. The song always made me think of Lucifer and his fall from grace, especially the part with the broken throne, the cut hair and being forced to say Hallelujah. It made Lilith a villain in my head and the story blossomed from there. I dreamed about it for weeks and then it came to life on my computer.

What are you working on now?

I have book two to Saintly Virtues in the works, so Belle and her Saints are getting ready for more steamy sex and world saving. I also have a dark contemporary RH about finding love after deep loss and building yourself up when the world is out to make you a victim that is in the works. I’m also playing around with a novella about Lucifer for a prequel to Saintly Virtues but it’s been put on the back burner for now.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I’m very musically driven so depending on the scene, book or character I’m working on I have specific music I will listen to. It gets me in the right mood and the words flow easier.

What are your hopes for the future?

I really just hope to get my stories out there and have people find the same love and enjoyment from these worlds that I do. I don’t necessarily need to be an international bestseller or anything like that. If I can touch or move even one person with my writing then I’m happy. Books have always meant so much to me, they brought me out of depression or anxiety attacks and if I can even make someone laugh when they’re down or give them a world they want to disappear into then I’m winning. That’s what I want to do.

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

Write your story how you want it. If it sucks well at least you have something, you can work with it. Look into formatting steps before you write the manuscript so that you can get the basics like specific indenting and line spacing done ahead of time. Changing your entire manuscript formatting sucks hard. It’s also never too early to start building a name for yourself. You don’t have to wait to have a book released, do it early so that you have someone to release your book to. Last, it’s okay to ask for help, whether that’s a PA, some Alpha Readers, whoever. You don’t need to struggle by yourself.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I appreciate every single one of you. I celebrate every time someone joins my group or follows my Instagram. It means more to me than you can imagine just knowing that someone is out there and I’m not just talking to myself, haha. I love when you guys chat with me and I love hearing everything you have to say. Without you guys, authors would be weirdos writing stories because the voices tell them to and then hanging them on our walls as art. The readers are the ones who make us seem not so crazy.

Author Josslyn Leach #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m Josslyn Leach I am a mother to two amazing little monsters, and a fur baby. I’m also married to a wonderful, sexy, annoying asshat. Don’t worry I really do love him. I was born and raised in a small town in Southern Utah. I grew up helping my grandparents on a farm, running wild on our family mountain property and camping and going on adventures with my other grandparents. Aside from that it all gave me my love for adventures, camping and exploring new places. Adding fuel to my imagination and writing.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No but its always been apart of my life. I have a natural talent for coming up with stories mixed with a wild imagination. I actually wanted to become a great deal of other things but when I had my first heart surgery and was on bedrest for a month, I decided to write story. Nothing to crazy but just for fun my daughter helped me pick out what we’d right about and what the main fmc would look like. That was it…… after that I knew that it was part of my destiny to write stories. Write about the crazy dreams I have or the daydreams I come up with. And I don’t regret a thing.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current story is a many rewrite and figuring out how I wanted the story my daughter help start many years ago. The current version is basically a full rewrite with a few of the characters names and looks placed into a setting about a Goddess instead of the original idea of a wolf who finds a necklace and becomes a savior of her world. (Don’t worry I’ll be using that idea for something later. These characters just decided it wasn’t for them.)

What are you working on now?

I am working on three projects Unknown Destiny coming out July 2020 (Sorry everyone I needed a bit more time to perfect it.)

A secret co-write with Clover Payne. The release date is still undecided.

And last but certainly not least A Cupids Salvation coming 2020.

Do you have any quirks when writing?

Well when I start writing out my story, I write it out fully or mostly with a paper and pencil. I then type it up adding more details and repeat the process several times.

What are your hopes for the future?

I think my goals are like many authors goal being able to fully support myself with my books and able to write all the time.

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

First- Find yourself an amazing pa. believe me they help, so much even if they are just reminding you to eat, got to sleep, and that you can do this.

Secondly- Start saving so you can pay for editing, covers. (these are the most important things needed for your book.)

Third- Don’t give up even if you have no support, not sure who will want to read your story or just unsure about everything. Keep going I promise you there is one person waiting to read your story and that one person can grow into more, and more. You’ve got this we’ve all been there and are still going through it.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Yes, I want to thank you all for your support and patience. You all keep me going and inspire me to write more. I love you all, I am so thankful that you picked me even when I didn’t have much to share.

Blogpost updated April 26th – 2020

Author Elyssa Dawn #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

Well, I’m the mother of two crazy fun boys who like to keep me on my toes. Married my best friend about 10 years ago. We met online, actually, because of a book series! 

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always wanted to do something with books. It’s always been my passion. I used to spend the entire summer at the library pouring over the books. I’d take home the allotted 10 at a time and be back for more before the week was over. 

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

Another author friend wanted to do a shared villain theme, and I immediately thought of Hook. My love for the pirate only grew with the show Once Upon A Time and Disney Descendants—yes I love Disney, I can’t help it! I wanted to twist it up a little and have it be about his descendants. I threw in quite a few things from the original, only with a slight variation. I’m excited to see what people think or if they pick up on those additions.

What are you working on now?

Right now I’m picking my NaNo project back up and completely re-working it. I found an amazing developmental editor who is able to see my characters and their personalities, and I can’t wait to work through what I have of it! I’m also sliding back into a co-write that my other author friend and I planned almost two years ago. Life got in the way for us both, but we’ve got a planning session scheduled at the end of the month and I’m so excited!

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Hmm, well I actually sit with headphones on but I don’t actually listen to anything. It distracts me when I’m writing. 

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to publish stories people are excited to read. I want to continue to develop my craft and grow as an author.

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

Just get the words out. You can’t edit or fix words that you don’t have.

Don’t set a publish date until you’re almost completely done.

Find your tribe. That group of people who encourage you and make you want to do more. 

Do you have anything to say to your readers? 

I hope you enjoy my first adventure into this world! Many more adventures from this fun group of characters will be coming. So stay tuned on my social media for any updates!
