SECRETS WE KEEP is coming October 2nd! 

Make sure you don’t miss the preorder!

Madison Kramer’s life is finally coming together. With her
boyfriend and publicist, Trevor, by her side, her career as a best-
selling author is sure to really take off.
But one thing hasn’t changed. Death follows Maddie wherever
she goes, and a night that should have been nothing but
celebrating the New Year in the arms of the man she loves, turns
into the scene of another murder.

The bodies are piling up, and the murder suspect wants Maddie’s
help in freeing his name. Her secret past continues to come to the
surface, putting her life at risk in a deadly game where Maddie
doesn’t know whom she can trust.

*Cover by Uplifting Designs*


Kelly Hashway fully admits to being one of the most accident-prone people on the planet, but that didn’t stop her from jumping out of an airplane at ten thousand feet one Halloween. Maybe it was growing up reading R.L. Stine’s Fear Street books that instilled a love of all things scary and a desire to live in a world filled with supernatural creatures, but she spends her days writing speculative fiction. Kelly’s also a sucker for first love, which is why she writes romance under the pen name Ashelyn Drake. When she’s not writing, Kelly works as an editor, and also as Mom, which she believes is a job title that deserves to be capitalized.

Colorless by Rita Stradling

I'm so excited that Rita Stradling is dropping into my blog to showcase her book.

In Domengrad, there are rules all must live by: Fear the Gods. Worship the Magicians. Forsake the Iconoclasts.

To Annabelle Klein, the rules laid down by the Magicians are the mere ramblings of stuffy old men. As far as she’s concerned, the historic Iconoclasts, heretics who nearly destroyed the Magicians so long ago, are nothing but myth. She has much more important matters to worry about.

Heiress to a manor mortgaged down to its candlesticks and betrothed to her loathsome cousin, sixteen-year-old Annabelle doubts the gods could forsake her more.

Then Annabelle is informed of her parents’ sudden and simultaneous deaths, and all of the pigment drips out of her skin and hair, leaving her colorless. Within moments, Annabelle is invisible and forgotten by all who know her.

Living like a wraith in her own home, Annabelle discovers that to regain her color she must solve the mystery behind her parents’ murders and her strange transformation.

Meanwhile, hundreds of the Magicians’ monks, with their all-black eyes and conjoined minds, have usurped control of Annabelle’s family manor. An Iconoclast is rumored to be about—a person who they claim goes unseen, unheard, and lost to memory, yet is the greatest threat to all of Domengrad. For the first time in a hundred years, the monks plan to unleash the dire wolves of old.

Their only target: Annabelle.

4-Ever Hunted: Vampires Rule by Kasi Blake

A New Series by Kasi Blake

Vamps! Handsome Heroes! Oh My!

JULY 28th - 30th

click here

Born with dark magic in his veins that is slowly killing him... Trick enjoys a reckless lifestyle.
Great for fans of Twilight, The Mortal Instruments, and A Shade of Vampire.
He rides his motorcycle too fast, plays rock music while fighting vampires, and has a talent for making girls mad, especially Dani Foster. The girl-next-door has caught all of his most embarrassing moments. She wants nothing to do with him. So he watches out for her from a distance, protects her from monsters she doesn't know exist.

Two strangers offer a solution to his impending-death problem. He can beat fate by becoming what he hates most: a vampire. Trick is sure he'd rather die. Then Dani begins to look at him in a way that makes his heart race. She brings hope into his life.

Can he do it? Can he become the thing he fears for the promise of love?

About Kasi Blake:
Kasi Blake is the author of several YA Paranormal Fantasy/Urban Fantasy novels. She wrote her first short story at the age of twelve. It's been a long and wild ride from writing The End on that story and getting published by an actual publishing house decades later. In her spare time she devours books in different genres (but YA Fantasy is her favorite), plays Words with Friends on FB, takes care of her animals (she lives on a farm), and she builds and decorates houses in her mind while trying to fall asleep.

KISSED BY LITERATURE by Jordan Elizabeth

A Collection of Short Stories

Enter worlds of steampunk and terror, where you’ll meet ghosts that will raise the hairs along your arms. Among the tales, you’ll encounter a serial killer stalking a country road and a vacation destination riddled with evil. This collection of short stories explores the different writing styles and genres of Amazon bestselling author Jordan Elizabeth.

KISSED BY LITERATURE is on Amazon from CHBB.  Get it for 99 cents for a limited time.
Check out early reviews on GoodReads!
Check out the start of the short story “Evil that Walks Tweed Road”:
            I slid the manila folder into the cardboard box, careful to keep them alphabetized.  My brother might tease me to death over my organization habits, but not once had I fumbled during my presentations.  Each photograph, newspaper article, and information sheet had a home. 
            “Excuse me.  Annie?  I’m Patrick.”
            I glanced up, the final folder in hand.  A man with gray eyes stood in front of the table.  I’d studied those gray eyes during my lecture while he sat in the back row of the library’s meeting room.
            “Yes?”  I double-checked the words on the folder before placing it into the box. 
            “I’ve always been fascinated with Tweed Road.  I grew up near there, and as kids we always wanted to see the ghosts.  Swear we saw a couple of them.”
            I nodded, my ponytail sliding over my shoulder.  “I’ve heard plenty of those ghost stories, but I don’t really believe in ghosts.  If a serial killer gets you, do you really want to hang around for all eternity?”
            He chuckled.  His teeth had to have been professionally straightened and whitened to gleam like that.  “What got you into giving talks on Tweed Road?”
            He couldn’t be flirting with me…but maybe he was.  “Well, I got my Masters in history and then I got a job as a professor here.  I started looking up local history, and this area is famous for the Tweed Road killings.   It was mostly all legends and kids daring each other to walk along the road at night, so I wanted to tell everyone about the truth.”  I smiled.  I sucked at flirting, but I could sure smile, even if my teeth didn’t look half as nice as his.
            “Do you think telling everyone about this will help them finally catch the killer?” 
            “Life is never that simple.”
            Patrick leaned toward me and lowered his voice.  “I know who the serial killer was.”
            I lifted my eyebrows.  At every library or historical society where I gave my presentation, someone always had a theory.  My favorite suggestion had been Jack the Ripper.  “Who are you thinking of?”
            “My grandfather.” 
            That was similar to “my ex-husband,” which I heard a lot from elderly women.  “Why do you say that?”
            “He confessed to me before he died and he showed me the spot where he did the killings.”
            The bodies had all been found dumped in the swamp, but no one had ever discovered where their hearts and livers had been gouged out.  I frowned.  “Who have you told?”
            “I, um…just you.”  The young man wiped his hand across his face.  “I don’t know if I should go to the cops.  They might just laugh.  Do they even care about the case anymore?  It’s all more of a legend now.”
            “A lot of families would have peace of mind.”
            Patrick closed his eyes and sighed.  “Can I show you the spot?  I think I’d feel better going to the cops if you went with me.  You know all the facts about the killings and I just know what my grandfather told me.”
            I shifted my stance.  “Don’t let me put words in your mouth.”  I had studied the Tweed Road serial killer for three years and it had all been paper, nothing I could walk on. 
            “Will you go with me?  I’ll drive.  It’s about fifteen minutes out of town.”
            It might become my stupidest decision, but…  “Let me just put my box in the car so we don’t hold up the library from closing at nine.”  If the spot was fifteen minutes away, they wouldn’t make it back by then. 


Jordan Elizabeth is known for her odd sense of humor and her outrageous outfits.  Surrounded by bookshelves, she can often be found pounding away at her keyboard – she’s known for breaking keyboards, too.  Check out her website for bonus scenes and contests.

Late to the Game, Always Learning

NEWSLETTER BUILDING and SWAPs oh my! FAN GROUPS and GROUP PROMO just getting in on the action.

I must admit I could slap myself upside the head for not starting my READER's GROUP earlier or really taking the time to do care and feeding to my Newsletter list.

My fellow authors that started out when I did, kept building theirs, pruning their garden and for them, it paid off.

However, late is better than never. I've done both.

New newsletter (still creating the signup page for it). Using Instafreebie instead of sending free copies to reviewers that I can't seem to keep up with or validate if their reviews were posted. And lastly, I just kicked off my reader hangout. It's a slow but steady process, something I regret not doing sooner.

Do you participate in a NEWSLETTER? A Reader or Fan Group? and grabbed an INSTAFREEBIE book?

Pinterest Anyone? If you are on there, drop on by

I just created a new PURGATORY REIGN series Pinterest board. I gathered some of my motivational pictures and cover art on the board. I am wondering if I should put some of my word building art in there. Some of it's rather dark but I will be adding it throughout the next few weeks.




and I'll gladly follow you.
