Who's up for a BOOK BLITZ? Congrats on your first release, Coleman Alexander!


Title: Between the Shade and the Shadow 
Author: Coleman Alexander 
Series: Beyond the Realmless Collection (Book 1) (Interconnected Standalones)
Genre: Coming of Age Dark Fantasy 
Release Date: June 21 2018
Edition/Format: 1st Edition / Format ~ eBook and Print 
Blurb/Synopsis: 
In the deep heart of the forest, there are places where no light ever shines, where darkness is folded by pale hands and jewel-bright eyes, where the world is ruled by the wicked and kept by the wraiths. This is where the Sprites of the Sihl live.
But Sprites are not born, they are made. On the path to Spritehood, spritelings must first become shades. They do so by binding a shadow: a woodland creature, who guides them through their training. Together, they keep from the light and learn to enchant living things, to bind them, and eventually, to kill them.
Ahraia is a shade who has bound a wolf for a shadow, as strong a shadow as there has ever been. But while her wolf marks her for greatness, Ahraia struggles with the violent ways of her people. Illicit as it is, she would rather be running wild beneath the moons. But a test is coming, and the further she and her shadow wander out of the darkness, the deeper they wander into danger. Ahraia’s time is coming and what awaits her at the end of her test will either make her or kill her . . .

★Synopsis★
Chad King is boxing’s golden boy that didn’t shine.
His big dreams have left him at rock bottom and when you’ve lost everything, losing becomes easy because there’s nothing to fight for.
The love of his life left him for a life he couldn’t give her and now she’s engaged and on top of the world while he claws his way out of the hole he dug when she left.
Lotus Shaw plays the role of the media’s darling, and dutiful fiancĂ© to a man only her parents approve of. She should be on top of the world, but she left her heart on the floor of a fight gym.
Now, she’s got to get it back.
One little secret from the past is keeping her from the future.
When they come face to face again, nothing could’ve prepared them for the sucker punch love was about to land.
Nothing worth having comes without a fight.

★About the Authors★

Eva and Ash are lifelong friends and after years of following their separate creative dreams they have come together to create some magic (or mayhem) and what better way to do that, than writing books. When they aren’t making trouble together they are both busy with their own projects, Eva working in film and Ash writing her dark heart out. Aside from these crazy antics they are both moms and wives, you can catch them at the school tuck shop or the side of the sports field supporting our families.

RELEASES


Detective Hank Reynolds has just been handed the case of a lifetime. Another reality TV star has gone missing, and it’s up to the Atlanta police department to find her before it’s too late. While he’s digging around, he discovers there have been nearly twenty similar kidnappings in the surrounding areas over the last twenty years, and while trying to find out more—and a witness that’s still alive—he’s dragged into a past he wishes he could erase. His dreams become nightmares about the women, and his sanity unravels. Even his eyes begin to play tricks on him, but no hallucinations are as devious as the antics of the killer—who’s always one breath away—waiting for the chance to strike again. NOTE: This is a stand-alone novel in a series with crossover characters and may be read independently of the other books.



Grayson

“I’m not a cocky man, I merely state facts. If that makes me an asshole, oh well.”


Building Fences (A Cedar Creek Family Book 1)

Caroline Miller has often fantasized about finding the mother who’d given her up for adoption. When an unexpected phone call gives her the opportunity to meet her birth mother face-to-face, she jumps at the chance.

But as the weekend turns into a series of mishaps and disappointments, Caroline wonders if she’ll ever be able to find peace with her beginnings.

Could a case of mistaken identity lead her to find the life she’s dreamed of and the family—and love—she thought she could never have?

This delightful #MeetCute novel by Violet Howe is the first volume in the Cedar Creek Family Collection.

What’s a #MeetCute?

Boy meets girl. It's the way romances usually begin . . . and while we all love a happy ending, it's the #MeetCute that wins our hearts.

How did you two meet?

The #MeetCute Books each have a unique answer to that query. Some might make you swoon, others might make you giggle . . . and some may make you blush.

Twelve authors. Twelve stand-alone contemporary romance novels. Twelve stories that will make your heart beat a little faster.

Because it's all about the #MeetCute.



A hot new rock star romance that will sweep you off your feet and leave you with a smile from New York Times Bestselling Author, S.L. Scott.

The rumors are true. At least where I’m concerned.

Drummers hit it harder and do it better.

Women love me and I love them. But I like to think of myself as a sensitive soul trapped in a lady-killer’s body. Not so surprisingly, I’ve been called cocky a time or two. What can I say? We can’t all be boy scouts.

Nikki Faris has thrown off my rhythm. With her red lips, smart aleck mouth, short skirts, long legs, and blue-sky eyes, the beautiful lead singer has become a complete distraction on this tour.

She loves to give me a hard time when all I want to do is give her the pleasure of my hard—time right back.

Tulsa Crow can save his pick up lines, great eight-pack abs, and cute dimples to use on someone else. My band earned their spot on The Resistance’s tour just like The Crow Brothers. I’m not going to blow it getting sidetracked by a cocky rock star that wants to sleep his way through the states. I’ve been called a name or two, but easy isn’t one of them.

But the best intentions with him turn into a walk of shame for me. Only, I don’t feel shame. Instead, I’m doing the very thing I said I wouldn’t—falling for a playboy.

We make sinful music when we’re on the road, but what happens to our melody when the tour ends?

If you've read Spark, or The Resistance, then you must dive into Tulsa where the characters are featured. If you haven't read those books, no worries, Tulsa is a COMPLETE STANDALONE in The Crow Brothers world.

Ella Jameson is not a witch, no matter what people say about her behind her back. Granted, she does have the ability to disappear. Working for the CIA as an undercover operative, Ella takes on any identity needed to protect others. Prince Thomas Henry Phillips of Sweden can literally charm the pants off any woman he meets. It’s the reason the local tabloids have dubbed him Prince “Charming”. It seems he’s made quite a name for himself, not just in the bedroom, but by finding his life threatened right before the Presidential Ball. Ella is tasked with another undercover assignment, this time posing as the Princess of Sweden, to keep Prince Thomas safe at all costs. Deadly assassins aside, Ella cannot risk falling for the Prince’s legendary charms. She’s found herself on the hardest mission to date -staying out of Prince Charming’s bed.

Episode 1
This is a serial series that may or may not end in a semi-cliffhanger. Each episode or serial will release approx every 30 days. This original story appeared in Timeless Ever After Anthology but this Episode has additional chapters. Follow Along over the next year Ella and Thomas' story



They've awoken something they don't understand. Secrets they're not ready to share.

But they share far more than they realize.

Luca and Emma travel to Detroit seeking answers to recent events, unaware they've triggered events along the way that could release the most terrifying of nightmares from across the veil.

What started as the simplest paranormal investigation escalates into an assault from multiple fronts as Emma's organization questions her loyalty, the Ahnenerbe presses to finish what it started, watchful eyes wait for the perfect moment to strike, and as the veil is lifted Luca must come to terms with who he is...
and what he must become.

Travel with Luca, Emma, Sutter, Virgil, Bella, and Hitch in Veil of Blood, book 2 in the Veil of Darkness series, a gripping and suspenseful paranormal romance from author Derek Adam.



I'm a devil in a suit.

I don't play nice.

It's not my style.

I'm the best attorney in Dallas and I have a reputation to maintain.

If opposing counsel smells weakness, they walk all over you.

Not on my watch.

Life was good until I met her--Brooke. I had more money than I could ever spend. More power than one man should possess. People respect me and it's for a reason. I demand it.

Brooke's nothing but another encounter.

She'll end up beneath me. They all do. I'll keep it casual. Nothing more.

I don't do relationships. I don't do love. It's counterproductive to the lifestyle I lead.

But, no matter how hard I fight it, I want more. Brooke doesn't take any sh*t and she gives it back twice as hard. She turns me on in ways that can't be explained with her tight body and snarky mouth.

I'll take whatever I want from her and then some.

Because I'm Weston Hunter, Attorney at Law.

*Devil in a Suit is a 25k word contemporary romance standalone in typical Alex Wolf style with a possessive alphahole and a snarky heroine that gives it right back to him. It also contains bonus excerpts from book 2, Playboy in a Suit, coming to kindles on March 11, and a few of his other stories.*



#1 Amazon Best Seller in Country Music
She's a single mom with a messy life. He's Rebel Desire's bass player.

I want what all my friends have.

He doesn't need my baggage.

I can't stop thinking about her.

Romance isn't my priority, my daughter is.

I want to show her she can have it all.

He thinks we can be a family.

Her and Rae are my family now, and no one will take them away from me.

He stays even when it's easier to leave.

I'm going to give her her southern fairytale.



They warned me not to get too close.
Too bad I didn’t listen.
Enter a star’s orbit, it’ll burn you down to ashes before you know what’s happened.
And he was the most beautiful star in the night sky.
Singed beyond repair, I left Los Angeles behind.
Left him behind.
But I was kidding myself if I thought a few thousand miles of space would erase my memory.
And I was plain stupid if I thought he’d let me go without a fight.
They say the brightest stars burn out the fastest…
But the strongest loves don’t ever fade.

UNFADED is the final installment of a sexy, emotional duet about a jaded rock star and a starry-eyed songwriter. Due to sex, drugs, and rock & roll, it is recommended for readers ages 16 and up.


Finding Me (Another Falls Creek Romance Book 2) by SF Benson

Sometimes loving someone means finding yourself first.

Colton Najex, an incubus, has spent a month in Hell contemplating his life. The royal supernatural has grown tired of the decadent parties and wild sexcapades with forgettable females and males. Something’s amiss in his world.

He’s bored.

Unhappy.

Lonely.

Colton craves a more humane, laid back way of life with someone special.

Jeremiah Jones, a struggling musician, has spent the last few years chasing the impossible. He wants a little solitude and a life spent making music with a special someone—a person of destiny according to a celestial prophecy. Unfortunately, Jeremiah seems to only attract a long interlude of Mr. Wrongs.

He’s frustrated.

Downhearted.

Lonely.

Jeremiah’s ready to give up and merely live in a world alone—just him and his music.

But an innocent wish from Colton to his grandfather, the king of Hell, changes everything forever.

When two souls—one from Heaven and the other from Hell—collide, can they put aside rhetoric and just embrace love?

Newsletter: May 2018

Vol. 1, No. 1

I've been sitting on the thought of a newsletter for a while now, and I've finally decided that, you know what? Let's just do it. I considered a fancy email version, but they just don't let me connect to you like I would like. I don't want to talk AT you. I want to talk WITH you. Putting it all on my blog was the best solution I could think of. Especially considering that if you look up on the top right bar, you can have updates sent to your email! I know a lot of people have their own here and there, but I really want to involve everyone. I don't want to just talk about me. I'm boring. I want to talk about anything and everything bookish. I wanna talk about those amazing authors that you might not have heard about. And if you're a new author and you don't know where to look for editing, covers, etc., I want to talk about that, too! I want to talk about it ALL!

So here we go!

PS - I don't get ANYTHING for sharing these authors, bloggers, etc. Beyond the thrill of introducing you to them, anyway. I don't get paid. I don't get free stuff. No free books, services, back rubs ... Nothing. I just really want you to find something new that you love and introduce you to some really cool people!

PPS - If you have a new book, a book that just doesn't get the attention it needs, a new blog, are starting a new cover design service, are starting a new editing service, and you want to be included in this, you seriously don't have to wait for me to manage some free time after the kids go to bed and just hope I find you. Besides, toddlers never sleep. Just drop me an email! Much faster!


NEW RELEASES!


I really want to start with a gorgeous woman whom I admire greatly. Super sweet and funny, and she's always making my days better. Lavinia Urban was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, and she was brave enough to write all about it. She finally published it February 28.


2017 was one of the hardest times of my life. It was the year I was diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer.
In this book I lay everything bare and tell you what it is really like living with cancer.

On My Way Home While Anger Sleeps by Jason Ellis was released April 15! I've known Jason a while, and he is just an amazing human being! He is always doing things for others, and I wanted to give him a little shout out, and hopefully bring attention to his new book!



They're here. Stay quiet. Don't make a sound.

I spent all night covered by a deranged coating of fear. The noise they made kept me trapped in a permanent and sadistically cruel panic. It was nothing compared to the fear I now feel. This fear cuts through me, grabs at my skin, and forces my heart to pump without mercy.

A different sound. A different cry.

My heart retaliates and pauses once again, desperate for its normal rhythm, and my imagination runs millions of images through my weakened mind. I'm suddenly writing possible futures … my future, my story … thousands of times. They all begin the same way, with the same opening words.

She heard a different cry …

I hold my breath. Unlike in the alleyway yesterday, time does pause for me now. I exist outside of the normal universe, trapped between one second and the next, as the new sound haunts me. Yes, that is the best way to express the feeling. The only way. I am haunted.

I don't know why the world changed, or what happened to everyone, but they are here now. The anger. 

My name is Shayla. I will survive. I will.

~*~

Prefer something a little ... steamier? Kitty Thomas released a dark romance called Pretty Lies on April 23!


As a phone sex operator, Annette Waincott knows how to tease to get what she wants. That is, until she teases the wrong man at a club, claiming kinky fantasies she doesn’t really have. It must have been too much vodka and his tantalizing Russian accent. Too bad he believes her.

When the Russian accidentally kidnaps her twin sister as part of an ill-fated sex game, things quickly get real. In a desperate bid to free her twin, Annette offers herself to him in trade. He both terrifies and excites her, but she knows she can never trust him. The things he wants will push her to her limits and beyond. And this time, she can't tell pretty lies and run away.

Note: This is a book in the Pleasure House world. The other books are: Guilty Pleasures, Broken Dolls, and Surrender. The books can be read in any order but this title occurs first chronologically and would be considered a "prequel" to the other books since Anton and Annette are already a couple in the other books. This is their origins story.


COMING THIS MONTH!


Happy Birthday to ME! Have you been dying for the next Forbidden Bond novel, like I have? Cat Miller (my beloved Kitteh Boss) is releasing Unmerciful ON MY BIRTHDAY! It's up for pre-order right now, but it officially drops May 22! And yes, I did manage to score an ARC as part of my job benefits, so I can assure you that you WILL want this book. And all the others, if you don't have them. Click her name. It'll take you where you want to go.


Being a vampire sure bites…

Lindsay Roselle’s biggest worry should have been what to wear under her robe at her college graduation, not how she was going to survive the night as a newly turned vampire. After catching the attention of the Rogue, a vampire out to destroy the Vampire Nation, Lindsay was forced to undergo the change herself. Convinced she’s fated for an end worse than death, Lindsay had all but given up until she’s rescued...by the last person she ever expected to see again.

Kayden Paris wasn’t anything like the playboy Lindsay remembered from the night they shared together...and she wouldn’t have forgotten the fangs. Kayden is the heir to his vampire clan and son of the mightiest warrior in the Vampire Nation, but even he may not be able to heal all the wounds Lindsay suffered at the hands of the Rogue.

In a life fraught with secrets, lies, and deadly enemies, Lindsay must first learn to trust herself in order to survive.
