GENRE: Sci-Fi (Dystopian)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MediaKit_BookCoverSmall_Nighthawks

 BLURB:

Twenty-six-year-old painter Conthan Cowan takes art to a shocking frontier…

His debut exhibit features the transformation of his high school friend, Sarah, as she went from a shy, soft-spoken girl to a Child of Nostradamus—an individual gifted with extraordinary abilities. Living in a society where the Children of Nostradamus are captured by the government, Conthan’s exhibit draws attention from officials and protesters alike.

A government psychic may be dead, but that doesn’t stop her from manipulating the future…

The deceased White House aide is only remembered for her failed assassination attempt on the president decades before Conthan was born. Foreseeing her own death, she scribed letters to bring together specific Children of Nostradamus on a mission that will change the world.

On the night of the gallery exhibition, Conthan receives one of those letters…

Whispers from the past direct him to visit Sarah, the subject of his paintings, who like many Children of Nostradamus, is being detained in a government research facility. It’s there he finds himself aligned with a rogue group of Children on a mission to prevent a dark future.

As a dark future unfolds, there’s only one hope to stop the destruction of the world…

The Children of Nostradamus.

Excerpt:

“…Seabrook, New Hampshire is gone. If you’re just tuning in, the Seabrook Nuclear Power Plant has just exploded. We have no word yet on what caused the explosion, but we do know there was a catastrophe resulting in failure of the systems at the Seabrook Nuclear Power Plant.”

“God help them,” said the woman at the news desk.

He could hear Elizabeth gasp at the announcement. His mind was moving a million miles an hour. His wife, still covered in sweat and grime from giving birth, his newborn son, his office calling him to alert him to the news, all of it caused his head to swim. He was unsure of what his next move would be.

The television flickered and turned to static. Mark reached up and smacked the side of the box. The static began to take the shape of a person. He stepped back to see the solid outline of a man on the TV.

“United States of America,” said a voice through the static, “land of the free and home of the brave. We are calling out your discreet operations. We know all about The Culling. Individuals who for years have been in your employ, using their more-than-human abilities to further your goals, will not die in vain. Killing empaths, slaughtering clairvoyants, and the genocide of telepaths will be responded to in kind.”

“Eleanor,” he said in a hushed voice as he realized what they were talking about.

“The United States has declared war on the wrong people. We can see you coming. We can hear your plans. We will not be eliminated. You’ve seen our reach.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I’m high school graphic design and marketing teacher, at a large suburban high school in Massachusetts. Working as a high school educator and observing the outlandish world of adolescence was the inspiration for my first young adult novel, “Suburban Zombie High.”

My inspiration for writing stems from being a youth who struggled with reading in school. While I found school assigned novels incredibly difficult to digest, I devoured comics and later fantasy novels. Their influences can be seen in the tall tales I spin.

I took the long route to becoming a writer. For a brief time, I majored in Creative Writing but exchanged one passion for another as I switched to  Art and Design. My passion for reading about superheroes, fantastical worlds, and panic-stricken situations would become the foundation of my writing career.

I participated in my first NaNoWriMo in 2006 and continue to write an entire novel every November. Now I am the NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison to the Massachusetts Metrowest Region. I also belong the New England Horror Writer’s Association and to a weekly writing group, the Metrowest Writers.

Fortuna by Elaine Cantrell

VBT_Fortunat_Banner copy

Fortuna

by Elaine Cantrell

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Romantic comedy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Aimee Sherwood never dreamed that following her fiancé into the witness protection pro-gram would land her in a haunted house in a town that’s downright creepy. She’d have laughed if she had been told the guy who lives down the road might be her soul mate, not the man whose ring she’s wearing. Life in West Virginia is nothing like life in Los Angeles, but between bean ball battles with Marilyn Monroe, remodeling a crumbling farmhouse, and starting a new online business, life in the country is anything but boring.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

He kissed her.

Stars fell from the sky. Drops of golden sunlight filled the air with pure joy. Birds sang a song the angels might envy. Oh, Cade!

Aimee forgot the ugly ring on her finger. She forgot Fortuna, and she never once thought of Rocky. Her heart pounded out a disjointed rhythm that filled her chest with more emotion than one heart could hold.

Cade buried his hand in her hair and deepened the kiss. Aimee moaned and pressed closer to him. The masculine planes of his chest against hers made her gasp as the scent of sun-warmed male skin surrounded her.

She ran her hand across his shoulder, marveling at the bulging hard muscles under her hand. Cade groaned and cupped her bottom to pull her closer. Her head spun, and they toppled over into the clean straw beside the puppies and their mother. They kissed as if they were starving for each other, but when his hips met hers, sanity returned in a rush. “Don’t. Please don’t,” Aimee gasped.

Cade made a sound low in his chest. “Why not? I’m dying for you, and you want me too.”

Shaking like a leaf, Aimee pushed against his chest, unsure if she wanted him to listen to her or not. He let her go. For the longest time neither of them said a word. They lay there staring at each other.

Interview with the Author:

How long have you been writing?

Do you mean the story I dictated to my dad when I was five?  LOL. Yeah, I wrote my first book at five. I’ve been writing as an adult for 15 years. It’s been a wonderful journey and has given me many hours of pleasure.

How long have you been a published author?
Oh, I was published in 2004. I won a writing contest whose first prize was publication of your novel. I still think the story line is one of my best. I broke a lot of writing rules when I wrote the book, but I do love the story.

What titles do you have available?
Let me see. From Oak Tree Press, there’s A New Leaf. From Whiskey Creek Press there’s Return Engagement and Blue 52. Both of these books are some of my very favorites. The Welcome Inn and The Captain and the Cheerleader are published by Wings ePress. Fortuna, A New Dream, Never Trust a Pretty Wolf, The Enchanted, The Sentence, The Table in the Window and Rest Thy Head are published by Clean Reads, and Purple Heart is published by The Wild Rose Press.

What made you choose the subject of this book?
My grandson requested it. He loves WWE style wrestling and asked me to write him a book about wrestlers. Well, I didn’t really want to, but like all good grandmas I caved and did it. The opening scene in the book takes place in the wrestling ring, but after that my wrestlers retired to West Virginia where the adventures just wouldn’t stop coming. This is kind of an over the top book so don’t expect it to be serious. Everything is exaggerated somewhat.

Do you have any new titles coming soon?
No, I don’t. I have two new ones to promote at the moment, and that’s about all I can handle.

What is your favourite genre and why?
I like mainstream romance. First, because romance provides an escape from reality, and everyone needs that from time to time. Second, I think romance satisfies our need for justice. People who aren’t very nice always get what’s coming to them, and third, we can rest easy in the knowledge that we will get a happy ending.

What, to you, is the most exciting part of the writing process?
Definitely the beginning. When I sit down to start a new book, I can’t type fast enough to get the words down. I have such a feeling of excitement, and I’m positively energized by the chance to create another world.

If you could co-author a book with anyone, who would you choose and why?
I guess I’d pick Debbie Macomber. I think she creates some beautiful characters and settings, and I love the emotion in her work.

Where can readers find you on the web?
Here’s a list for you.

The Dawning of Scarlett by Jennifer Osborn

BB_TheDawningOfScarlett_Banner copy

The Dawning of Scarlett

by Jennifer Osborn

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: YA Paranormal

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

As a pale revenant—the vampire faction believing all life is sacred—sixteen-year-old Scarlett Ellis has learned to hide in the human world. She goes to night-school, works at a coffee shop, and her uncle Chasem trains her in martial arts. No matter what, she has to be prepared, because when she turns seventeen, she’ll be of Dawning age—and her biological father Apollo vows to see her dead first.

Expecting her Dawning to be impossible, she accepts the fact that she will become a rogue, forever hunted by revenant renegades and outcast by her own people. Scarlett thinks she’s prepared for this—until the curly-haired Nicholas Lightener walks into her life and asks her out on a date.

Torn between her feelings for Nick and the danger of the revenant world, Scarlett’s strange life is turned inside-out when she’s kidnapped and forced to do the one thing she swore she’d never do. Plus, she has no idea whose memories keep appearing in her dreams, or if they can even help her. Determined to free herself from a death sentence, Scarlett must fight to become who she was born to be.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MediaKit_BookCover_TheDawningOfScarlett

Excerpt:

 His lips freeze in surprise for a moment, warm and tasting like salt, but they quickly yield to mine. Before I know it, his surprise melts into participation, and he kisses me back. It’s all pleasantly confusing, and I feel dizzy. My blood pounds wildly in my veins and I’m worried my eyes are going to change out of excitement. But before I can pull back, he does first, and his breath is hot on my cheek.

I keep my eyes down, for fear of what they might show. I glance up at the artery in his neck, veiled by the paper-thin skin of a human. The blood moves in thick shots and I hear his heart pounding. I feel the urge to let my canines drop and lean over to bite him. I’ve learned to control myself so much around humans that I’m able to push the desire down. But he gives off the most intoxicating smell. I find myself wondering what his blood would taste like. It’s odd to even think about, because I don’t even need blood right now, but he’s somehow attracting me in a way I don’t understand. It’s a strange desire to bite—not to hurt, not even to drink, but to bite. I can’t make sense of it.

The Trouble with Seduction by Victoria Hanlen

BB_theTroubleWithSeduction_Banner copy

The Trouble with Seduction

by Victoria Hanlen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Historical Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Rebellious, Scandalous and Irredeemable

Sarah, Lady Strathford is ready for a little harmless frivolity with a man of her own age and her own appetites…surely that’s not too much to ask! After the death of her beloved husband years before Sarah is ready for an adventure… Enter the dashing, roguish – and baffling – Mr Cornelius Ravenhill.

Ravenhill, however, is not the gentleman he seems, and soon Sarah finds herself battling against the corrupt and harsh world around her as it threatens to destroy all she holds dear. The question is, will her seduction at the hands of Mr Ravenhill prove to be her saviour or her downfall?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MediaKit_BookCover_TheTroubleWithSeduction

Excerpt:

“This excerpt is from an unedited ARC and there may be small changes in the final book.”

“Good morning, my lady?” Ravenhill’s playful rumble resounded around the garden.

Sarah’s finger flew to his lips. Even though she’d decided to choose proving her innocence over possible gossip, caution had been too well ingrained for her not to heed its call.

She towed him through the door and locked it behind them. The lantern she’d left to light their way glowed weakly in the narrow, rock-lined tunnel.

“Is this a secret entrance, my lady?”

She exhaled in exasperation, and whispered, “My staff’s ears could win prizes.”

Ravenhill removed his cap and hunched under the low, curved, rock ceiling. His muscular physique filled the confined space reminding her of the tight spaces they’d encountered in the rookery. How easy it would be for her to accidentally brush against him. “I prefer we not be discovered.”

Lantern light caught the glint in his eyes. A moment passed before his gaze moved beyond hers and into the tunnel.

He gestured with his cap. “I confess, I’m all aquiver to begin our search.” His drawled words sounded like veiled intimacies. He seemed in a mischievous mood… and so early in the morning.

“Mr. Ravenhill, please talk quietly. I fear our voices may carry.”

He dipped his head further. His warm breath tickled her ear. “Should I consider myself special… to be shown your secret entrance?”

Innuendo, coated with a healthy dose of charm, wove through the smile in his voice. Her insides started to flutter. Men had never flirted with her, and she didn’t know how to respond. Instead, she grasped the chain around her neck, grabbed the lantern and tripped down the passage. A door appeared on the right. Unlocking it, she lifted a tapestry and led him into a small chapel where she stepped to the altar and knelt.

“Do you pray for your past sins or your future ones, my lady?”

Queen of Likes by Hillary Homzie

Queen of Likes

by Hillary Homzie

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: middle grade/tween

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Like everyone at Merton Middle School, Karma Cooper’s smartphone is almost another body part. She’s obsessed with her LIKES on Snappypic. When her parents shut down her social media account and take away her smartphone, Karma’s whole world crumbles. She has to figure out what she actually likes and how to live life fully unplugged. This book will jumpstart conversations about how social media is changing the ways tweens are growing up.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MediaKit_BookCover_QueenOfLikes

Excerpt:

“So we’re come up with a new punishment,” says Dad. “Something that will get your attention.”

Dad looks at Mom and Mom looks at Dad and I can tell that they are a united front against me. “We’re going to close your Snappypic account,” states Dad.

“What?” My stomach dips as if I’ve just dropped from highest part of a roller coaster. I want to flop against the nearest car in the parking lot. “You can’t do that. It’s my account. It’s private. You can’t.” Every day, I get smiley faces and hearts and balloons and LIKES. All of the time. Waking up and not being able to se what my followers are up to? Being totally cut off like that? My parents might as well send me to Antarctica because I’m going to be frozen out of everything. “This must be some kind of hallucination,” I say. “The parents I know would never do this to me!”

“Karma, I’m sorry,” says Mom. “But I think you are over-reacting. You knew the rules.”

“Please.” I clasp my hands together. “Please, please. Please. I’ll do anything. I’ll babysit Toby as much as you want. I’ll clean the house every single day. I’ll make dinner I’ll—”

“It’s a final decision,” says Dad.

“But I’m like… a professional. I have more followers than some companies.”

“Exactly our point, Karma,” says Mom. “You’re not a company. You’re our daughter and still a kid. And I don’t really love this obsession of yours.”

The parking lot is practically spinning. “You just don’t want me to grow up!”

I fling up my arms. “Please,” I beg. “Don’t do this.”

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Interview with the Author:

How long of you been writing?

That’s a really good question. I’ve been writing fiction for about 25 years. However, before I wrote fiction I was a journalist. I spent one year as a radio reporter, and then I held some publicist positions. One at the Pennsylvania Ballet in Philadelphia and one at the Institute at Pennsylvania Hospital. During that period, I was also doing some freelance writing. I wrote for some parenting publications, Dance Magazine as well as New York Newsday.

 

How long have you been a published author?

My first book was published in 2002, and it was a chapter book. I guess that means I’ve been officially published for 14 years.

 

What titles do you have available?

I have the first two titles in The Alien Clones from Outer Space (Simon & Schuster/Aladdin Books) chapter book series—Two Heads Are Better Than One and Who Let the Dogs Out? Those were written under the name H.B. Homzie. They are for children 5 to 8 years old. It’s a comedic series about twins who discover they have a alien clones from outer space and they get the clones to do their chores for them, resulting in mayhem.

In addition to my new book, the Queen of Likes, I have two more books written for girls ages 9 to 12. They are–Things Are Gonna Get Ugly, which is about a materialistic girl who magically is transformed someone bookish/nerdy and what she learns about herself in that state. And the other one is called the Hot List. It’s about the length that the 12 year-old Sophie goes to in order to win back her best friend who is drifting away from her.

 

What made you choose the subject of this book?

I chose to write about tweens and social media because I parent two teenagers and a tween, and I see how much kids are on social media. I thought it would be an interesting area to address. My publisher, Simon and Schuster, told me this is their first book about tweens and social media. The protagonist needs to learn what she likes versus what other people like. She learns to look inside herself versus outside of herself for validation.

 

Do you have any new titles coming soon?

I’m in the process right now of discussing some offers for a new children’s book series. I’ll be able to talk about that soon but it’s still early.

 

What is your favorite genre and why?

I love anything that is humorous and also touching at the same time. I spent some time in New York City as a sketch comedian. I always call upon that comedy muscle when I write.

 

What, to you, is the most exciting part of the writing process?

I might be a little odd, but my favorite thing is to receive feedback from other authors, my editor and my agent and incorporate their insights into my work in order to strengthen it. I love revising!

 

If you could co-author a book with anyone, who would you choose and why?

I would choose Jane Austen because she is so clever and wise and attuned to every sort of social nuance. I’d love her eyes on contemporary 21st-century tween and kid culture.

Musings of an Earth Angel by Suzanne Adams

Musings of an Earth Angel

by Suzanne Adams

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Young Adult/New Adult

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

22-year-old Samantha Kingston had the perfect job, perfect boyfriend, and perfect Friday nights. When disaster strikes she loses everything and is propelled into a journey where evil and good, dark and light are battling for her destiny. Will the Demon Brigade viciously destroy her? Or will her Angel team and the Divine help her to elevate and see her real truth as an Earth Angel?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

9781504339605_COVER.indd

 Excerpt

She paused for a moment to hold my gaze. “Being an Earth Angel isn’t an easy feat. So if you do it with success, your reward after you transition from earth is tenfold.”

Every word she said struck a chord deep within me. “So you are saying I’m an Earth Angel?”

“Yes, that is exactly what I am saying. Isn’t it wonderful news?”

I hesitated for a moment at the heaviness of what she was telling me. I knew my life was changing, but this seemed so big, so huge. I was on earth as an angel? Me, a real life angel? I couldn’t believe it—it just didn’t seem like it could actually be true.

“I do feel honored, and this does feel right to me,” I said. “It could be my truth. But it is a little scary, and it’s a lot to take in. What does being an Earth Angel mean, exactly?”

“First of all, please know that it is nothing to be scared of. It is an honor. It means you have special magical gifts and powers that you can offer to help save the world.”

“You mean I can help with the transition of human evolution?” This message had come up repeatedly, and I was starting to somewhat understand.

“Yes. Exactly. You have a complex mission, and it will be unfolded to you in time. But for now, yes you are getting it. The dolphins say hello, and they want to support you in any way they can. They are one of your spirit animals, and they are happy you loved their dance. Their mission is to make humans feel free and alive and to inspire play-like qualities.”

“I am honored to meet them,” I said, as one of the dolphins slid right up to me. I ran my hand across its smooth, slippery skin.

“I have something really special for you,” she said. In her palm she held the most beautiful, sparkling green emerald on a delicate gold chain.

“Wow, what is it? It is stunning.”

“This is an amulet. It was kept hidden in the sea for thousands of years for you. We knew you would need it in this lifetime. If you wear it, it will help protect you. It is from the Atlantean times and will help unlock memories and assist you in remembering all your truth.” She attached the necklace around my neck.

“I love it. It’s so special. Thank you so much.”

“You are doing beautifully, darling. You are on the right path so keep it up. I will be going now, so remember me every time you go for a swim. Try not to stay away from the water for so long.”

She looked at me, put her hands together in front of her heart, and bowed her head like we were at yoga together. She then submerged deep within the water, faster than she appeared. I sat on the rock with tears of joy streaming down my face at learning and realizing my truth.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Interview with the Author:

  1. How long have you been writing? 

2 years 🙂

2. How long have you been a published author? 

6 months

I was falling a calling and teaching a few things I believe are important through a fun, magical and mystical story.

5. Do you have any new titles coming soon?

I am working on book 2 of the trilogy now.

6. What is your favourite genre and why?

I love young adult trilogies! I love how relatable the characters are and I love the fact that when you finish book one, it’s still just the beginning.

7. What, to you, is the most exciting part of the writing process?

Seeing the finished product of course! But besides that the creating process. It’s so fun to know that you get to change things at any moment.

8. If you could co-author a book with anyone, who would you choose and why? 

 

Oprah or J.k. Rowling! Oprah because she is my ultimate hero and J.K bc it would be pretty cool to have Samantha meet Harry Potter.:)

Lies I Live By by Lauren Sabel

NBTM_LiesILiveBy_Banner

Lies I Live By

by Lauren Sabel

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: YA Thriller

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

These are the facts: My name is Callie Sinclair. I am seventeen years old. I live in San Francisco. I love my boyfriend, Charlie. I work for a secret governmental agency. I am a psychic spy. This romantic, action-packed twist on the classic spy novel is perfect for fans of Ally Carter’s Embassy Row series or for any reader who enjoys cinematic writing and stories of romance and intrigue.

At seventeen, Callie is the government’s youngest psychic spy, trained to track dangerous people and weapons in her visions. When another young—and handsome and witty—psychic joins the agency, Callie’s personal and professional lives get messy all at once. If she can’t find a way to change the events she’s seen in her visions, she could lose the people she loves most . . . and her mind. Literally.

Richly painted against the backdrop of San Francisco and Berkeley, Lauren Sabel’s enthralling novel captures the thrill of exploring a unique power in a dangerous world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

Right now, all over the world, there are psychics searching for dangerous weapons, biological hazards, serial killers. But you’ll never know about it. The government will deny it.  “That is not reliable information,” they will say, not mentioning the hundreds of psychics behind closed doors, accurately finding kidnapped people and murder victims.  They won’t tell you about how some minds can see below the ground, above the earth, backwards and forwards in time. And they won’t tell you that some of them are housed in mental institutions, or that one of them is your neighbor, or that one of them is below the legal voting age. Or that, for those people, life is a secret they can’t share, so they are always alone, except for one place: In their own minds.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Interview with the Author:

  1. How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing since I was in second grade, but I’ve been writing seriously for about ten years. When I say seriously, I mean that’s how long I have been focused on a particular project that I believe in deeply enough to push my self-doubt aside and finish it, no matter what my internal critic says.

2. How long have you been a published author?

Two years now, since VIVIAN DIVINE IS DEAD was published by Katherine Tegen Books in 2014.

3. What titles do you have available?

VIVIAN DIVINE IS DEAD was my first book, and LIES I LIVE BY is my second.

4. What made you choose the subject of this book?

I have long been fascinated by the US government’s remote viewing program during the Cold War, and I’d read many books about it before I ever heard Callie’s voice in my head.  Once Callie made it clear that she was a psychic working undercover for the government, and that she wasn’t going away until I wrote her story, I dug deeper into the truth about the remote viewing program, and let fiction evolve from fact.

5. Do you have any new titles coming soon?

LIES I LIVE BY

6. What is your favorite genre and why?

I love YA books. I am intrigued by the natural struggles being a teenager produces: falling in love, dealing with insecurity and sometimes loss, finding your own identity. I remember all of these things very clearly, and although now I have the fortune of seeing the ups and downs of my teenage years in hindsight, I can still dig into those feelings and thoughts, but with enough distance to stay a happy, functional adult.

7. What, to you, is the most exciting part of the writing process?

The initial discovery. This happens in the first draft, of course, but also all the way through the writing process. Every time some plot point or character trait doesn’t work, I get to surprise myself by coming up with a solution. This discovery process is the most painful part of writing at times, but it can also be spine-tingling, day-making, joy-inducing work.

8. If you could co-author a book with anyone, who would you choose and why?

Probably Jodi Piccoult. I’m a big fan of the way she creates believable characters while simultaneously crafting an intriguing and often morally complicated plot.

9. Where can readers find you on the web?

At www.laurensabel.com, or my tumblr blog. I’m also on facebook, twitter, and instagram under the handle “laurensabel”. I have a website for the book www.liesiliveby.com and a facebook fan page.

Thank you!

Lauren

Where You Go, Were You Are

MBB_WhereeverYouGo_Banner copy

Wherever You Go, Were You Are

by Randa Flannery

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Paranormal Romance (Comedy)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

The PI business has really gone to the dogs. Literally.

Werewolf Lucy Lyle has just caught a ruff new case: sniff out the stalker preying on a couple of male strippers. Should be easy enough, except it seems that the only scent Lucy’s wolf is interested in is that of the scrumptious new client. Human client. Too bad they’ve sworn off humans for good. But like a dog with a bone, the harried PI is determined to solve the case, facing down the dangers of strip club locker rooms, waxing strips, law professors, smart mouthed police officers, and, worst of all, true love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MediaKit_BookCover_WhereverYouGoWereYouAre

Excerpt:

He’s a stripper. His mouth could be carrying a sexually transmitted disease.”

The women giggled and guffawed.

“That couldn’t be it,” Jazz persisted. “You’re a dog. You probably lick your own butt after a good run through the woods.”

She had a point. Sort of. I mean, I don’t really lick myself…my wolf, however…. Well, I try not to think about it.

“Aren’t dog’s mouths cleaner than a human’s?” Andi asked with her typical naivety. It’s one of her charms.

“That’s a myth,” Amelia informed us all.

“And also, I’m not a dog,” I added, in case anybody cared.

“Whatever,” Lillian retorted with a dismissive wave of her hand. “Get back to the point. What’s wrong with Mr. Yummy over there?”

I gave a shrug. “Nothing’s really wrong with him.”

“You got that right,” Andi agreed, her eyes straying Yummy’s way again.

“But he’s too…”

Her eyes jerked back to me expectantly. The whole party watched me, waiting with baited breath. Well…with bad breath, honestly.

“Human,” I finished. “He’s just too human.”

Lucy’s Life Rule #1: Never get involved with a human. It was also Rule #2, 5, 8, and 20.

Fibers by Jennifer-Crystal Johnson

VBT_Fibers_Banner copy

Fiber

by Jennifer-Crystal Johnson

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Science Fiction

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This book is on sale for just .99 on Amazon. Check it out here:

Amazon Fibers Sale

BLURB:

Anna Reynolds is caught up in the middle of a secret interdimensional government agreement… and she doesn’t even know it.

There’s a medical anomaly loosely dubbed Morgellons disease afflicting a number of people. Symptoms include open sores that produce colorful string-like fibers, fatigue, and nightmarish visions of shadowy figures. No one knows where it came from. No one knows what causes it. There is no cure.

When Anna begins having nightmares and waking hallucinations of the shadow people, her uneasiness about her condition grows. Enlisting the help of her doctor and some friends, Anna is determined to find out what’s really going on and why Morgellons is such a mystery.

With her health declining and doubts about whom she can trust, is Anna doomed to become a slave to her condition? Or will she and her unlikely group of would-be heroes come through, saving her… and, ultimately, the world?

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MediaKit_BookCover_Fibers

 Excerpt:

As Anna walked home through the glistening streets of Deeplake, Washington, she adjusted her scarf and wrapped her coat around herself tightly, her breath fogging up the air in front of her. After a brief glance over her shoulder, she quickened her pace, her bag of groceries teetering in her arms momentarily as she readjusted her grip.

She’d been feeling like someone was watching or following her for weeks. At first she just shrugged it off as her own overactive imagination, but the other day, she could’ve sworn she saw a shadow out of the corner of her eye. When she looked, there was nothing there. That wasn’t the first time she had seen shadows. They were always there, just out of sight, their existence never confirmed by a direct glance. But every time it happened, she got goosebumps and the hair on the back of her neck stood on end like it does when you know someone is watching you.

Her left eye began to feel itchy and grainy as she walked, and she cursed herself for not driving. She blinked several times, but after a few moments her eye felt like it had sand in it again. This was accompanied by an unpleasant tickling sensation, which became annoying very quickly.

Her thoughts wandered as her eye got worse. She felt guilty but justified for not mentioning her problems to Casey, who had more than enough on her plate already. She also didn’t want to come across as crazy; Anna was certain she wasn’t. Some of the recent events in her life were crazy, but she was definitely sane.

Do crazy people think they’re sane?

Interview with the Author:

First, thank you so much for having me! I appreciate you taking the time to ask questions, get to know me a bit, and help me promote my first full-length novel, Fibers =). This is also my first experience with doing a blog tour, and so far so good – it’s a lot of fun!

Thank you if you’re reading this right now, too =). I hope you like the premise of my sci-fi novel, which is the first in a trilogy. I also hope that you’ll pick up a copy from Amazon, but if you’d like to get your hands on a few excerpts first, I invite you to sign up to receive my author newsletter at www.JenniferCrystalJohnson.com. I’ll be emailing everyone on my list a series of 12 excerpts. You’ll have the option of reading it in your email or allowing me to read it to you on video =).

Without further ado, Independent Authors has asked me some wonderful questions, so here are my responses. I hope you enjoy this interview!

 

  1. How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing since I was about eight or nine years old ;). Of course back then it wasn’t anything impressive, but I loved the act of writing, so I kept doing it. It was fun =). Once I had an idea for a story, I would run with it.

People always commented on how talented I was, and that led to my first official freelance writing job for an online community for teens. The online magazine would come out four times a year and I was invited to help moderate the forums and write stories and articles about whatever I wanted to for each issue. It paid $100 per issue, and that doesn’t sound like much, but when you’re 13 and have no bills, it’s easy to save that kind of money =).

 

  1. How long have you been a published author?

I started out submitting to some poetry anthologies as a teen, but my first book – a novella, psychological thriller – was published in 2005, shortly before I turned 21. It was published by a company who claimed to be a traditional publisher, but I later found out they were on the Writer Beware list and started seriously thinking about self-publishing, although I didn’t go on to self-publish a book until about 2010.

 

  1. What titles do you have available?

I just released my first full-length novel ever, and am super excited about it! I’ll list all of my books in backwards chronological order:

 

  • Fibers, book #1 of the Infiltration Trilogy; Broken Publications, March 2016

http://amzn.to/208SXTp

  • Our Capacity for Evil, short horror stories; Broken Publications, February 2015

http://amzn.to/1XhZ2ex

  • Soul Vomit: Domestic Violence Aftermath, anthology; Broken Publications, October 2014

http://amzn.to/1YfAwLh

  • The Ten Pillars of a Happy Relationship; Broken Publications, February 2014

http://amzn.to/1UXozw0

  • Soul Vomit: Beating Domestic Violence, anthology; Broken Publications, December 2012

http://amzn.to/1oDgz4P

  • If You’re Human Don’t Open the Door, short horror stories; Broken Publications, April 2012

http://amzn.to/1Vy7iIc

  • Strangers with Familiar Faces, poetry; Broken Publications, February 2012

http://amzn.to/1Vy7pDT

  • Napkin Poetry, poetry; Broken Publications, July 2010

http://amzn.to/1Xi04am

  • The Outside Girl: Perception is Reality, out of print; PublishAmerica, March 2005

http://amzn.to/1oDh52P

 

  1. What made you choose the subject of this book?

The idea for Fibers came about when I stumbled on information regarding a mysterious disease known as Morgellons on YouTube. I’d been researching cryptozoology, kind of searching for inspiration for a new story, and something came up about Morgellons. Intrigued, I started watching videos with information about this illness and found it so fascinating that I decided I just had to use it in a science fiction novel. Something just clicked when I was researching it… and as the idea developed further, it just kept feeling like this is a book that absolutely needs to be written! So I did. And there will be at least two more in the series =).

 

  1. Do you have any new titles coming soon?

As I was planning my marketing strategy for Fibers over the last several years, I gathered resources, did research, and weighed my options as far as financial investment, time investment, and how far ahead I should plan my novel’s release. I collected all of this research and these resources and put everything into a short eBook that is packed with links, tips, marketing advice, low-budget options (because let’s face it… I’m a single mom of three and broke, lol), and ways to plan your marketing efforts in order to make the most of them. If everything goes as planned, all of my marketing will be documented in the book as well and I’ll finally be able to publish that eBook.

 

The working title is The No Bull Guide to Self-Promotion for Independent Authors, and it’s the first in a series of short, to-the-point educational books about self-publishing that I want to make available alongside free video tutorials and online classes on www.NoBullSelfPublishing.com. Just because we’re indie authors doesn’t mean our published work can’t be good quality, so that’s what this site is all about – that and avoiding scammy vanity presses who take authors for thousands of dollars and don’t deliver the services they promise.

  1. What is your favorite genre and why?

My absolute, absolute favorite genre is sci-fi =). It’s difficult to do sci-fi well, so I really hope that I did the genre justice with my book, but I love imagining the possibilities of the future, space travel, time travel, other dimensions, the spirit world (which really is just another dimension if you think about it), superpowers, strange diseases, cryptozoology and weird creatures…. I guess I’ve just always been attracted to the strange! Lol… I also love it when books, movies, and TV shows make me think. My brain NEVER shuts up, and I really can’t do the mindless stupid-funny genre very much because it makes me feel like I’m getting dumber by the minute, hahaha. I’m just very intrigued by things that are strange but potentially possible, because humanity doesn’t know what it doesn’t know. Back when Star Trek came out, nobody thought that handheld phones or touchscreen tablets would be real. Look at us now; everyone has them ;). The possibilities are just so limitless that it seems magical and realistic at the same time, which is awesome =).

  1. What, to you, is the most exciting part of the writing process?

There are two very exciting parts for me. First, developing the idea into a workable story line. I love brainstorming, love researching, and every time I get going into either one of those processes, my mind and imagination just take over and run with it. Feels awesome! The excitement about that is just so amazing =). The next really exciting part is when you’re starting to get sick of working on it because you’re working on the umpteenth revision but then everything clicks. It starts as this little bubble of excitement that expands as things keep clicking together and you realize your work is so near completion you can practically taste it =). It’s so exciting! Lol

  1. If you could co-author a book with anyone, who would you choose and why?

I wouldn’t choose anyone famous, to be honest…. I would choose one of two people to collaborate with, and they happen to be the same two people who gave me the most detailed feedback on my novel before the last couple of revisions and edits. I know them, we communicate well, and I imagine we would work well together because we already kind of have =). The process should be fun and enjoyable… if I were to try to work with someone I don’t know I can have intense or in-depth conversations with, we would most likely butt heads and that takes the joy out of the whole process little by little because it causes stress and tension.

  1. Where can readers find you on the web?

Readers can find me all over the place =). I’ll include links to social media, too, but here are some of my websites, starting with my author site:

The Tremayne Family Romances:

Asking for Trouble

Here Comes Trouble

The Trouble with Nathan

by Anna J. Stewart

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MediaKit_BookCover_AskingForTrouble

 

BLURBS:

Asking for Trouble: Morgan Tremayne has a heart of gold, but to keep her children’s charity afloat she’s had to resort to some less than legal means: donations from a notorious cat burglar who targets the wealthy. It’s only a matter of time before Morgan’s criminal connection blows up in her face–especially since her undeniable attraction to the man heading the investigation keeps putting her in tricky situations.

Former police detective-turned-investigator for the D.A. Gage Juliano has two goals: salvaging his career and nabbing Lantano Valley’s present-day Robin Hood. But when he meets a beautiful, curvaceous woman who’s more interested in helping others than amassing a fortune like the rest of the town’s residents, Gage finds his desires pulled in an unexpected direction…

 

MediaKit_BookCover_HereComesTrouble

 

Here Comes Trouble: Former beauty queen Sheila Tremayne looks dainty, but she’s tougher than she seems. The hard-as-nails business woman is determined to bring down corruption among Lantano Valley’s rich and powerful. Her latest scheme to get technology tycoon Chadwick Oliver is going perfectly until a distraction arrives in the form of Malcolm–the man who broke her heart and who happens to be Chadwick’s son…

Malcolm spent five long years away after his father publicly blamed him for some shady business dealings. Now he’s back to exact some revenge. Reconnecting with Sheila was never part of the plan, but the second he sees her, there’s no way he can resist…

Sheila and Malcolm quickly fall into the sizzling passion between them, but Malcolm has no intention of staying once he’s finished with his father–even if leaving Sheila again might be more than he can bear.

 

 

MediaKit_BookCover_TheTroubleWithNathan

 

The Trouble with Nathan: Nathan Tremayne shares a dangerous secret with his father, Jackson, and sister Sheila. Together they are Nemesis, the infamous cat burglar who targets the wealthy. But when Jackson is framed for stealing the priceless Crown of Serpia, the whole family is at risk.

Nathan isn’t about to let his father go down for a crime he didn’t commit, but finding the real culprit won’t be easy with Laurel Scott, the nosy, pushy, drop-dead gorgeous insurance investigator following his every move.

 

But Laurel has secrets of her own. Posing as an insurance investigator was part of her own plan for the Tremaynes. As their attraction heats up, and the truth comes out, will this pair of thieves steal each other’s hearts?

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

THE TROUBLE WITH NATHAN

“I’m sorry, but this section of the museum is closed until further notice.”

The female voice drifted over Nathan with the same softness as the jasmine scent wafting down the tiled hall of the Wellington Museum. He glanced over his shoulder, eyes skimming the curvy figure of the brunette standing behind him. Polished, his sister Sheila would say; bordering on stylish from her tailored button-down white blouse and snug, knee-hugging black skirt, all the way to her sharp-toed patent black pumps. Every inch of this woman said collected and professional. Had it not been for the suspicious glint in her curious brown eyes and the fact he needed to get into that display room, Nathan might have let his gaze linger—and enjoy—longer.

“Yeah.” He pushed away from the door frame and turned on the double-dimpled smile that had sent numerous women tumbling into his bed. “The crime scene tape kind of gave it away.”

Her deep red lips didn’t curve. They didn’t even twitch. Instead, she tapped long, manicured fingers against her waist, kicking out a hip as she arched a brow. Her hair fell down her back in soft waves, hints of copper catching the recessed lighting of the museum’s ceiling. Sable, he thought. He’d bet her hair would feel like sable sliding between his fingers.

Nathan resisted the urge to clear his throat, something he tended to do when uncertainty descended. He prided himself on being able to read people; it was after all, part of his job as a security expert and thief. Looking at this woman, however, filled his mind with an odd kind of static that prevented him from pinning her down. Appearances aside, there was something electric yet unreadable about her. One sparked his blood. The other . . . well. Nathan grinned. There was little he enjoyed more than a challenge.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

USA Today and national bestselling author Anna J Stewart can’t remember a time she didn’t have a book in her hands or a story in her head. A geek at heart, Anna writes romances featuring strong, independent heroines for Berkley (The Tremayne Family Romances), Harlequin Heartwarming (The Butterfly Harbor series) and will soon add romantic suspense to her booklist with the BONDED trilogy from Harlequin Romantic Suspense. RT Book reviews says Anna’s romances are “refreshingly unique, quietly humorous, and profoundly moving” and NYTimes bestselling author Brenda Novak says “The talented Anna J Stewart delivers every time!”  Anna lives in Northern California where she deals with a serious SUPERNATURAL, STAR TREK, and SHERLOCK addiction and tolerates an overly affectionate cat named Snickers (or perhaps it’s Snickers who tolerates her).
