Love Is Not Lost (Faith Series Book 1)

The first day I met the McGuire brothers, Lincoln hit me with a football.

Second day, Tyler, vowed to break down the walls I had around me.

A week later, Kayden made his move.

They knew what they wanted and were going after it.

Me.

But I had a secret. I just never knew how much of a secret it was until I met them.

♥♥♥

All sixteen-year-old Faith Daniels, or Daniels for short, wanted was a chance. A chance to forget her dark past and forge her own future. But that’s hard to do when your past is full of great darkness.

Death always comes at a hefty price, more so, when you’re unsure if you’ve carried out such a sentence.

Given the chance to break free from her hometown with an officer by her side, Daniels will find out that sometimes it’s not the past you have to be worried about; the future can be just as scary. Especially in a new town where three hot neighbor guys want your attention.

As Tyler, Kayden and Lincoln McGuire try to break down the walls Daniels has formed; things get a little out of hand.

Maybe it was the dumb mutt that kept harassing her or the crazy cop foster parent that seemed to keep her on her toes, either way; Daniels walls were cracking. Sometimes it takes more than just one guy to keep your walls down. To gain your trust. To help you love again.

Maybe for Daniels, three guys was her lucky number.

Introductions: The Ghost Bird Series: #1

With an agoraphobic mother and a barely-there father, Sang abhors the isolation keeping her in the shadows. The only thing Sang craves is a fresh start and to be accepted as ordinary by her peers, because for her being different meant being cast out alone.

When her family moves to a new school district, Sang infiltrates a group of boys nearly perfect in every way. Grateful for an influence outside of her parents’ negativity, she quickly bonds with the boys, hoping to blend in and learn from them what it means to have a natural relationship with friends.

Only the boys have secrets of their own and they’ll do anything to keep her safe from the knowledge of the mysterious Academy that they’ve sworn allegiance to. Bit by bit, Sang discovers that her friends are far from the normalcy she expected. Will her loyalty change when she’s forced to remain in the dark, or will she accept that she’s traded one house of secrets for another?

Meet Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North in a story about differences and loyalty, truth and mystery, friendships and heart-throbbing intimacy.

The Academy, ever vigilant.

Thief: The Scarab Beetle Series: #1 (The Academy Scarab Beetle Series)

Kayli Winchester is a dirt-poor girl living out of a hotel, forced to be the parent for a drunken father and teenage brother who she’s desperate to keep in school. The only way she scrapes by is to utilize her one skill: pickpocketing. But even though she’s a thief she has a moral code: no kids or old ladies, only targets who can defend themselves. Not that they see her coming…

Thinking she’s been working under the radar, Kayli has no idea The Academy has been watching and taking notice. Now a team that needs her skill has offered her a way out of her predicament and it’s her last chance: work with them, or face jail time. Kayli resists at first, but slowly the boys reveal they can be trusted. With Marc, the straight man, Raven, the bad-boy Russian, Corey and Brandon the twins as different as night and day, and Axel their stoic leader, there’s a lot Kayli can learn from these Academy guys about living on the edge of the law. If only she can stay on the good side instead of the bad.

Especially when the job they offer her is more than any of them bargained for. After it’s done, the hunters have become the hunted and their target is now after Kayli. The Academy boys do their best to keep her hidden, but a thief like Kayli will never sit still for long.

Meet an all-new Academy team in Thief, the beginning of the Scarab Beetle series.

Kota: Meeting Sang #1 – The Academy Ghost Bird Series

The Academy: Ghost Bird series in a different look at the very beginning. Read Introductions with a whole new perspective–the boys’.

Kota Lee has been trying for weeks to get the girl up the street to notice him. She’s beautiful and intriguing, but seems incredibly shy. Too shy. Every time he tries to get close, she dodges him, like a skittish little bird, flittering away out of his reach.

Troubled by her haunted looks, he’s tried to give her some space, respect her need for solitude. Still, he can’t forget those eyes that are haunted and–he thinks–maybe hiding secrets.

One dark night as thunderclouds are rolling in, he’s driving home late and spots her standing in the road. It’s too late for her to be out for a walk and the pack on her back tells him what she’s doing: she’s about to run away.

She could get hurt, or worse, disappear forever. He can’t let her go; he’d never forgive himself if he did.

Author Sariah Skye #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Sariah Skye also writing under the name Lizzy Fox

Tell us a bit about yourself

This one is always hard for me since I’m a chronic over-sharer. But, let’s see… I’m in my 30s, from Minnesota where I’ve lived most of my life. I’m married with two kids and a dog. I’m a huge geek, swear too much, and am super awkward in real life. I love romance of all kinds, Star Trek, Doctor Who, and I’m obsessed with Imagine Dragons. I’m also super sarcastic but I’m not sarcastic about Imagine Dragons–I really am stupidly obsessed with them. LOL

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Since I was five years old, yes. My mother and grandmother were readers and my grandmother wrote quite a bit as well, but she passed before she could get anything published. I literally don’t think I could do anything else.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Well I have quite a few projects going on, actually. A lot of inspiration comes from music or even a specific song, to some real-life experiences I’ve had, whatever. The Be Yours trilogy was inspired by my real-life struggles with depression and also by a song I’ve loved for years. The Infamous series was loosely inspired by my ridiculous adoration of a certain band, and The Fated Saga was inspired by World of Warcraft; they have dragons in the game that shape shift into humanoids and I thought that was super cool ten years ago. I’d never heard of dragon-shifters before. That’s pretty much the gist, it comes from anywhere and everywhere.

°

°

What are you working on now?

1) Wrapping up the Be Yours trilogy with Be Your Everything, and starting the spin off, an MM contemporary Be Your Mistake.

2) Finishing Fated Fury and the Fated Saga

3) Notorious, book #3 of The Infamous series

4) A couple of secret projects of existing characters

5) Shadow of Sherwood, my gender-bent RH Robin Hood retelling

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Honestly I prefer to write from 9pm to 4am if I had my way; I’m more awake at night. I have big, long playlists where I put on my headphones and drown everyone else out (unsurprisingly, a lot of those songs are Imagine Dragons—NO, REALLY?!?!) Got to have my cherry Pepsi, and I absolutely cannot stand anyone looking over my shoulder. I’ll punch someone who does that. LOL

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

Stability, I suppose. I’d love to take all my work to multiple markets instead of just Amazon and Kindle Unlimited. I’d also love to hit the USAToday or New York Times lists, but with a solo title, otherwise I’d never know if it was my work people were buying for or someone else’s.

°

°

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

The best thing I can say is just be yourself. You’re going to come across a lot of people with a lot of advice, and some of it isn’t going to work with you. Sometimes those people might second guess your seriousness as an author, but that’s probably because they’re insecure with their own abilities.

Also: GOOD COVER. I really don’t think it’s wise for anyone, unless they are professional, to design their own covers. There are so many places to get decent, affordable covers. You can have the greatest story and the best editing and blurb in the world, but if your cover is awful, no one will ever know because they will pass right on buy. I think cover is the one thing you absolutely CANNOT skimp on. Some designers just starting out, needing to grow their portfolios will be very affordable, sometimes only $50 for custom. That’s super reasonable. I’ve seen so many good stories fail because their covers stink.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Hmm, I’m sure my readers would just prefer I don’t say anything at all because I blah blah blah too much all the time. But, I do hope they know how much I appreciate them, their support, when they share my books, talk about them, or message me. It’s a very tough, intimidating business, and “imposter” syndrome affects most of us. You don’t know when your message or kind words might be the motivation I have to keep going when I want to quit. ❤ (This goes for ALL authors!)

Also, I’m sorry for all the Imagine Dragons fangirling. Really, I am. 😛

Okay I’m not. But I love you all just the same!

Author Albany Walker #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Albany Walker

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

Hi, I’m Albany. I’m a mom, wife, reader and writer. Pretty much in that order. I have four children that are the center of my universe, and a husband I’m still deeply in love with after nineteen years of marriage. I write romance, and believe in real life happily ever afters.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve been an avid reader since childhood. I started reading books my mom and aunts left lying around, which were mostly horror and true crime. I didn’t find the romance genre until I was in my late twenties, and I never looked back.

°

Being an author was always a dream of mine, but I would have never started the journey if it wasn’t for my youngest child. I spent a lot of time just holding her, (she’s still clingy today) 🙃 I had been reading book after book but I had a story in my head and I couldn’t seem to find the story I wanted to read. So, one day I decided I would write it. It was an outlet I didn’t know I was desperate for.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

I’m not sure I had a true inspiration for my current series. I tend to write what I want to read, so sometimes a character will come to me, or a single scene and I go from there. I’m a total pantser, even when I try to plot my characters won’t ever listen to me.

°

What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on book four of my newest series Infinity Chronicles. Book one is already available with book two coming May 2nd.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

I have to stick to my routine. If I get a late start, I end up lost in the depths of social media. 😁 I also need quiet, writing takes my entire focus, no music, no TV. But I am a big music lover, so I often find inspiration in music.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to keep publishing for a long time to come.

°

°

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

°

My best advice.
Write for yourself, you’ll never make everyone happy.
Editing is so damn important. But not every editor is right for you. Don’t be afraid to submit samples to see if you work well together.
Find a tribe, and utilize author support. There’s a wealth of knowledge out there, and so many authors willing to help.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

I truly appreciate the support, and I love hearing from readers. Feel free to send me a message or email if you have any questions.

Thanks!

Author Kathryn Moon #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Kathryn Moon

Tell us a bit about yourself

I just turned thirty this past year and I’ve been writing longer than I can remember. I love knitting and crocheting and baking to chill me out in my free time. Pies are my specialty. I’m an indie music junkie and I love all kinds of movies. I’m…fairly obsessed with my cat, Coraline.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Not really. My mom wrote down the stories I told her and when I was old enough I wrote stories on the computer, back when AOL dial up JUST arrived on the scene. I never really stopped writing but I didn’t think of it in terms of wanting to share those stories until I was in college studying fashion design. I was totally miserable, I hated sewing machines, and I was writing in all my spare time. I ended up dropping out and switching majors after my freshman year and I’ve been pursuing writing pretty single-mindedly since then.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I love writing about witches and all different kinds of magic. My new release, Command the Moon, is heavily inspired by folk magics and also Russian fairy tales. Originally in my head it was titled The House on No Legs and had a pretty heavy Baba Yaga theme, but that trickled out in the writing and me getting caught up in the romance angle of the story. It eventually became more about personal power but there are still little Easter egg secrets in details left over from old ideas.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on Book 3 of The Librarian’s Coven, titled Scrivens. I’m really excited about returning to my coven of characters and the surprises I have coming in the book. Written was my first published book so it’s fun to continue that journey and I love the romance between Joanna and her men.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I like to have a candle or incense burning and I cultivate playlists pretty meticulously. They don’t always make sense for the mood of the story but if I find myself not being too distracted by a song playing and really pounding words out, I add it. I like to pretend my ears have muscle memory and playing those songs again will keep me motivated.

What are your hopes for the future?

I sometimes feel rushed to produce new works and keep audience attention, and I try to ignore that feeling in favor of producing the story I want to tell in the moment. I’d like to get to a slightly more comfortable spot where I stop thinking about sales and numbers and write with a little less stress. (But I’m an anxious person so that’s probably wishful thinking, LOL.)

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

Writing the stories you want to tell is an incredibly joyful and thrilling thing, but at the end of the day it IS still work. Don’t be afraid of those moments where words won’t come or you hate your story or you want to tear your hair out. Power through them with a frown on your face the whole time if you have to. There’s always going to be a second draft, help from betas, your editor’s advice. And after the book is out you won’t remember the struggle quite as vividly. Or at least that’s how it works for me.

Do you have anything to say to your fans?

I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to fully say thank you, not with the strength that I feel every day. Finding you and having you find me and sharing my work is the exact thing I wake up for in the morning. I cannot tell you how lucky you make me feel. Thank you from the end of my hair to the tips of my toes. ♡

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve been writing since I was young, but it was until I moved out of home that I realized my passion was in creating stories. It helps that my dad is also an author, so I guess the writing bug is in my blood 

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I grew up reading everything I could get my hands on about mythology, and even completed a degree in mythology, so to be it made perfect sense that I would put what I loved in my stories.

What are you working on now?

Right now, I’m writing book 1 of my brand new series – Taking Breath. It’s a dark romance set in a near post-apocalyptic world where men outnumber females fifty to one and survival is an everyday battle. This is Caeli’s story… See cover attached.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Hmm I always have a cup of tea and water by my desk and I can’t write without music! It’s my muse.

What are your hopes for the future?

My plans are to become a full-time writer and follow my dream to create stories every day of the week.

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

Never give up. No matter how hard things seem, take it one piece at a time and you’ll get there. Plus, network. Get out there and meet other authors, make friends, and learn.

Do you have anything to say to your fans?

That I am completely blessed to have met so many readers who adored my stories, and I always make time to speak to anyone who contacts me as I love to hear from my readers.

Please give a warm welcome to author A.K. Koonce

Tell us a bit about yourself

I live in a small town, spending most of my time reading fantasy romance and sneaking writing time in after my little one falls asleep.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No. I had no idea it was even an option for me until about 5years ago. I’ve wrote my entire life. It was always just a fun hobby but I’m so happy it’s become such a major part of my life now.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

The To Tame a Shifter series was inspired by my obsession with magic and mystical beasts. I wanted something where amazing creatures, hidden magic, and of course complicated romance, came together in a new way.

What are you working on now?

Right now I’m working on book 4 of the To Tame a Shifter series and a secret wonderland project.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I dont have quirks while writing but when I’m not writing, character dialogue builds in my mind to the point that I’m not even listening to what’s happening around me. The characters can be kind of demanding sometimes.

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope my future is just as it is now. I hope that I can continue writing these flawed but beautiful characters and all the fantasy realms inside my mind.

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

My advice would be to keep going. I spent 3years writing my first book. I wrote the second one in just 3 months. Keep going. It gets easier.

Do you have anything to say to your fans?

I love my fans! They’re the best part of my day some days. They mean the world to me❤
