Please give a warm welcome to author Jenn D. Young

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a pretty quirky person. I love reading, writing and listening to audiobooks. I’m a super huge fangirl when it comes to my audiobook narrators and I will totally squeal when talking my favs. I love writing books with deep rich backstories and characters with tragic pasts, but I always insert humor and life through sarcasm. Paranormal is my jam, but I’ve done a couple short stories in the contemporary world that I hope to expand on eventually. I live just outside of Phoenix, AZ, but I’m originally from western Washington and I miss my mountains and rain. The two loves of my life are my fur babies, Loki and Hermes. That’s about it about me!

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve been jotting down random ideas since I was about 10 years old. I came up with the concept for my first series, the Shadows Ascending Trilogy when I was about 14 years old and it took me 16 years to finally get it written and published. ❤

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

The Unyielding Fates Trilogy idea really came to me when I bought the covers as a premade yet. The model’s appearance sparked an idea in my mind of half demon/half angel and being the personification of Balance. It totally spiraled from there!

What are you working on now?

Working on edits to sent Balance Altered, book two in the Unyielding Fates Trilogy to send to my editor. Also getting geared up to start writing a book for a shared world series I’ve joined!

Do you have any quirks while working?

Silence. I can’t write with chaos and noise around me so I typically prefer silence. I also build playlists for each book that help inspire the story flow and show songs with deep meaning for the characters.

What are your hopes for the future?

Just keep writing and releasing books for people to read. Have more of my books in audio.

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

Find you tribe. Those people who are true friends that you can bounce ideas off of. Find a good editor. Always reach out and ask for help when you need it.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I honestly squeal anytime I get a message or read a review from someone saying they enjoyed my books and my characters. To see a book of mine recommended when a group asks for recommendations? I about die every time it comes up.

Jenn’s Lost Girls

Author R.L. Caulder #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I am a native Floridian but you’d never guess it by my pale ginger complexion! I am engaged and getting married in August, 2020. I have a full-time adult job as a property manager of rentals but I hope to become a full time author within the next few years! I have two fur babies, a ginger kitty named “MeowMeow” (My fiance named her) and a staffordshire pitbull named “Winrey”.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I have always had a passion for reading, but honestly never thought I had it in me to write a book! The fear of putting out something that just flopped is what stopped me from doing it prior to now. It has been a struggle to push through that mentality of not feeling as if my work is good enough, while completing my first book.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I don’t even know where any of my ideas come from! I was sitting on my couch one day when the idea for Desolation struck me, so I began typing out a small outline in the notes app on my iPhone. It only grew from there and before I knew it, I had wayyyy too many notes to keep up with and had to transfer it to a google doc. The characters and the world had my mind in their clutches and they wouldn’t let go!

What are you working on now?

Book two, “Detonate” in my Darkness Rising Series! I also have a pending co-write on the side.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I have to be listening to music in the background and the genre changes as my scenes do! I feel so much inspiration while I write from the emotions certain songs give me.

What are your hopes for the future?

To become a full time author by the time I’m ready to start having kids!

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

I’m still quite new myself, but I would absolutely say, make sure you are surrounding yourself with people who want you to genuinely succeed. You will doubt yourself enough, without having the whispers of negative people in your ear.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I’m not sure I have many followers yet, but thank you to everyone who has supported me on my journey of putting the voices in my head onto paper! It’s been a whirlwind, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

In my world, women are property. 

Made to be owned. 

Born for one reason—to be tied to a powerful man, to bear the next generation.

And my bride?

Bratva scum.

Only Inessa isn’t scum.

Inessa is…

Perfect.

Except for one thing.

Someone has touched my property, and for a Five Points’ man, that means someone is going to pay.

With their lives.

They say I’m filthy rich, but what they don’t know is that I’m just plain filthy, and Inessa? She’s about to learn what it means to be married to a filthy fecker.

We kill to protect our women.

We reap nightmares on those who harm them.

And me?

I’m the biggest nightmare of them all.

Book ONE of the Filthy Feckers’ series is a standalone without cliffhanger, but there are elements that will be explored in the following book.

Queen (The Full-Blood Book 3)

We’re back, purple piglets!
And we’ve come to claim what’s ours.
To pick up the pieces that we’ve left behind.

The moment we stepped out of the gate, we were thrown on another rollercoaster.
Another battle awaits us—a battle we have to win.
There’s no time to just go along for the ride.
No, I have to take it all head-on.

Because I’m Isadora.
And I protect everything that’s mine.
And you better hope you’re on that list.

Queen is the third and final book of the full blood series, it’s one woman with multiple men, this will mean there will be M/M scenes and long and steamy scenes. Read it at your own risk!

Away With the Faeries by #SamHall #newrelease

Away with the Faeries (Get Your Rocks Off Book 1)

Everyone sees from their own perspective, they say. But I’ve always seen things that aren’t there. As a child I called them fairies.

I didn’t know how right I was.

My parents tried to cure me by giving me a new lens through which to see the world: a camera.

My nan thinks she has the answer with herbal concoctions and effigy’s to ward off evil.

The doctor calls it mental illness and tells me to eat right and take my meds.

But none of them work.

The world jumps and shifts and changes, showing me things no one else sees.

I think I’m mad, until the day I photograph a friend’s lavish party – where rules and inhibitions are tossed aside along with clothes. Nothing had prepared me for these sights or for them: the Changelings.

A group of bad boys who glimmer in my messed up vision. I’m irresistibly drawn into their web. Into their musical world of debauched sensuality where I am called to document their band’s tour.

Nan’s warnings of the fair folk don’t even cross my mind. Swept up in their fairy ring my crazy vision finally makes sense, and I’m not sure I ever want to leave. Or should I want to leave?

Author note: This is an RH tale so one woman, multiple love interests. 18+ only for adult content.

The Reclamation by #IvyAsher #newrelease

The Reclamation (Shadowed Wings Book 3)

The last place I ever wanted to be was in the middle of someone else’s war. Too bad fate doesn’t give a fuck. 

When I first woke up in the land of the Gryphons, I had one goal…getting back home. 

I was so focused on figuring out how to leave that I got myself exiled from the Hidden, captured by the Avowed, and managed to claim not one, but three mates. Although I had no idea about that last one until it was too late. 

Oh right, and then I almost died.

I thought having my throat slit from ear to ear was going to be the worst of my problems. But my asshole mates make coming back from the brink of death look like a glide through the sky compared to dealing with them. 

I’m ready to accept my fate and right the wrongs of the past. I just wish I had some idea how to keep the pricks I’m bound to from fighting long enough so we can find the help we need. 

I’m supposed to awaken all that I am in order to finally free the Gryphons, but will I find the key to unlock all the answers in time?

War is breathing down our backs, and if we can’t figure out how to come together…we’re all going to die.

Lorelei: Siren of the Rhine by @melodycalder1

Lorelei: Siren of the Rhine

Relationships between a human and a nixie were forbidden but that didn’t stop Klaus and Lorelei from falling in love. As they planned to run away, the worst thing imaginable happened and Klaus was forced to choose between saving his soulmate or facing unknown repercussions of dark magic. 

The curse was set in motion, Lorelei’s soul bound to a painting with the caveat that she would be reincarnated and lose all memories of her previous lives. Klaus was given a life of immortality waiting for his one true love to come back to him, only to lose her again as the dark magic took her life again and again. 

As the curator of the Louvre, Klaus is the only one who knows the true origin of the painting he watches over. Signed only with the title ‘Nixie’ and initials, he’s spent years pretending to solve the mystery that surrounds the painting that never ages. 

When the Germanisches Nationalmuseum demands the painting be brought back to its country of origin, Klaus must leave the one thing he has left of his love – the painting that connects her to this world and allows them to find each other again. 

As he transfers the painting to its new home, a beautiful but tragic surprise awaits him. Is he strong enough to do this again?

Something is different in this life though, and as Lorelei slowly regains her memories, Klaus wonders if together they can finally break the curse once and for all. He must hide his own past and all of his knowledge or risk the wrath of the fates no matter how much it pains him. When Lorelei finds out the truth, will she be able to forgive him? 

Pre-order Soulbinding Fate by #SamanthaRose

The world has never been a kind place. It’s filled with disaster and people that are just out to get you, at least, in Tara’s experience.

Unless you get them first.

Tara likes to live on the edge, keeping people at a distance away from her heart for the sake of her sanity. It’s safer that way, but it’s also, lonely.

But when she becomes mated not to one, but to three men, she has an unexpected change of heart. She sees her future for once, instead of her own downfall and she doesn’t want to let go.

When it comes time to take love by the reins, will she risk it all for love and fully allow her mates that she always yearned for in? Or will she do what she knows best and kick them to the curb when things get tough?

Satisfying Lost Dreams (Broken Soul Kingdom Book 1)

Escaping from his problems on a new strange world seemed like the best choice but starting over is never easy.

When Eros runs into an Earthen female named Dani during a hunting accident, he tries to avoid her at all costs, but sometimes fate has a funny way of turning the tables.

Challenged by the unexpected emotions she brings forth inside him, Eros begins to learn that his only chance at safely keeping his heart intact is making sure Dani stays by his side.

What happens to him is unexpected, and astounding—an encounter that started off as a craving for a forbidden being turns into something more… a new hope for finding someone special, to embrace the mate that he never dreamed would appear in his lifetime, much less on a world not of his own…
