Jeweled Wings by Quinn Arthurs
In a world full of winged warriors, what difference can a wingless girl make?
Surrounded by powerful Valkyries, Emberly’s wingless status is viewed as a curse. She never expected to be more than a slave and a training subject for the warriors. A chance rescue by the Princes of Ardenia changes her life – but is it for the better?
Thrown into a world of politics, legends, and bigotry, Emberly must try to find a way to survive. With the help of the Princes– Suneel, Jett, Blaine, Hunter, and Flynn–she begins to learn not only about life outside of the barracks, but about what it truly means to be loved.
Shadowed Wings by Ivy Asher
I am a latent wolf shifter.
Or so I thought.
Then life as I knew it changed in a flash—or more accurately, an electrocution.
I’ve woken up in a strange place, surrounded by strange people who hate me. They’re in the middle of a war, and I look like I belong on the wrong side of it.
If that’s not enough to qualify as a really bad day, I now have wings and a strange animal to figure out, because it turns out that there’s not a damn latent thing about me.
If I want to live, I have to prove that I’m not the spy I’m accused of being. Then I need to figure out how the fuck to get back home before all hell breaks loose. Too bad my animal has zero interest in working with me unless it has to do with the two hot assholes that lead this rebel group.
I’m on my own, in a place I’ve never even heard of, with threats I don’t know how to defeat. And lucky me, I might as well have a rotisserie chicken living inside of me for all the help my newly discovered gryphon is.
Perfect. Just fucking perfect.
Phoenix Rising by Quinn Arthurs and Harper Wylde
I always knew I was different.
I’d thought it had to be hidden – to stay a secret.
I didn’t know my secret would become the key to my survival.
Turning eighteen and getting accepted into college brings me everything I need to escape from the nightmares of my past but I never could have imagined my nightmares – and dreams – were just beginning. Finding myself thrown into a world of fantasy, politics, friendships, and rules that are nearly impossible to understand, I feel like I’m drowning in a world of shifters I never knew existed. As I struggle to find my place and prevent my nightmares from tearing me apart, I find myself surrounded by an unusual group of sexy men. With Hiro, Killian, Theo, Damien, and Ryder I’m trying to become the woman I’ve always wanted to be, if my past, and my future, will let me.

It is the end of days…
Taken from her family at birth, and raised by the mystic Sisterhood, Anne understands she will fight the demons for the rest of her life. Often referred to as the Weird Sister, Anne longs for a life she knows she can never have and dreams of her five guards affections although she believes they hold her in disdain.
She couldn’t be more wrong.
Bryant, Mason, Garrett, Kieran and Milo see Anne for who she is and they’ve loved her every day they’ve known her, although they can never see her face. Fate has chosen them as her beloveds and when the already destroyed world falls apart, they will see they are meant to be…and that maybe all hope is not lost at all. Maybe it is just the beginning.
The Faerie Wars by Quinn Arthurs
I always thought my mom was crazy, with her offerings to the fairies and whispered spells. After she died, I followed her last wishes and performed her final rites–only for my life to turn instantly upside down. My kitchen is now full of three insanely sexy and opinionated men who claim to be witches and fairy knights–and also my soulmates. They claim I have a great destiny, that I am meant to defeat the Elvish Queen who my mother has been fleeing all of these years. I don’t want an epic destiny, though, I just want to be normal for once in my life, if there is such a thing. With the help of my new companions, Onyx, Terran, and Reed, I will discover strengths inside myself that I had never known and an underworld greater than anything I could have imagined. Now I must find out if I have the strength to face my destiny and myself.

Tell us a bit about yourself
I am a homeschooling mom of three wonderful kids. I used to teach foreign languages at the collegiate level, but now own a private practice in a yoga studio called Bright Light Therapy where I am a holistic psychotherapist. In my free time, I write, lol.
Have you always wanted to become a writer?
Yes and no. I have always loved to write and I might have thought about it as a kid, but not really as an adult.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
Actually, it was a dream, haha. A very inappropriate dream that evolved into something more.
What are you working on now?
Total Lunar Eclipse is the third and final book in The Afflicted Zodiac series and will come out the end of August. I am also working on a dark menage standalone and an RH retake of Swan Lake called the Swan Empress, both to come out this year.
Do you have any quirks while writing?
My youngest is just 2 and still breastfeeds, so I have a lot of time holding him and just thinking. . . I get a lot of ideas and keep my iPod next to me to record anything. Sometimes this happens 2 or 3 in the morning and I have to whisper. When I listen to myself the next day, I sound like someone from the Blair Witch Project, lol.
What are your hopes for the future?
To be happy. I’m a really simple gal.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
I’m really glad you asked this question because I definitely came into this business blind. Firstly, I did not have FB of any kind, so I was behind the ball in this regard. Since most people already have FB, use this to grow your readers. Make a FB page and reading group and join similar genre groups to add friends and meet other like-minded authors and readers. Do Take-overs at release parties and offer giveaways and interesting posts to keep members engaged in your author group/page. Next: get your cover professionally done! And make sure your book is edited. I was so excited to publish my book, I did my own cover and self-edited. I am very well-spoken, but I missed A LOT. I finally had my cover redone and my book edited professionally and since then, my sales have soared. The truth is, you are going to have put a little money out up-front in self-promotions and polishing if you really want a well-done product. Learn from my mistakes because I probably wasted a lot of money I could have been putting towards my book instead, lol.
Do you have anything to say to your readers?
Yes: THANK YOU! If it weren’t for you guys, I really wouldn’t be much of an author. You inspire me to keep writing. And that means the world to me.
