THE WORLD HAS CHANGED.

SCIENTISTS WARNED IT WOULD HAPPEN.

Meteors devastated the Earth. World Governments developed plans to help surviving citizens. The United States disbanded and salvageable land was divided into our quadrants—North, South, East, and West—governed by The Remnant Council.

Struggling to survive, seventeen-year-old Ava ends up in juvenile detention, until she is selected for a new life—with a catch. She must be injected with an experimental serum. The results will be life changing. The serum will make her “better.” To receive the serum, Ava agrees to join a program controlled by ISAN, the International Sensory Assassin Network.

While on a mission, she is abducted by a rebel group led by Rhett and told that not only does she have a history with him, but her entire past is a lie perpetuated by ISAN to ensure her compliance. Unsure of who to trust, Ava must decide if her strangely familiar and handsome captor is her enemy or her savior—and time is running out.

When a child is born they’re a blank canvas. A canvas that is later moulded by the influences of the world around them. Those influences determine that child’s future, but they are not always kind. Some of those children will enter adulthood easily, unscathed by the harshness of life, but for others, that journey is not an easy path to follow.
And then there are those, who’s journey’s are cut short.
He only ever wanted ….. to fit in.
He only ever wanted ….. to be included.
He only ever wanted ….. to have friends.
Alec never wanted for anything.
His parents made sure of that.
But, what Alec desperately wanted, they couldn’t buy.
He just wanted to be normal……..
He could never see what the rest of us could.
Smart. Funny. Good-looking. Sensitive.

 Prologue 
When you’re little, growing up is supposed to be something you can’t wait for. If you believed what you watched in the movies, your future was going to be filled with lots of singing, talking animals and a fairytale happily ever after.
What more could a little girl want?
How could such innocence ever consider their lives would one day be filled with nothing but pain and regret – as mine is today. I shared the same philosophy, and dreams as every other little girl I knew. I planned to grow up, battle a villain, and find my very own prince charming who would whisk me off into the sunset. As a child I was an optimist, envisioning my life being very similar to one of those beloved Disney movies I watched endlessly. What can I say, I grew up in the eighties during a time when Walt Disney had you believing it was possible to dream big. You have to admit, even the fairy tales our parents used to read to us when we were young wanted you to believe that as well.
Honestly, what child do you know who doesn’t become excited when they read about an ugly duckling changing into a beautiful swan? It was those fairytales, with their stories of love that had every one of us believing even we could eventually find our own happily ever after. What dear old Walt didn’t warn us about, was not every cloud came with a silver lining. He should have warned us that with the good, comes the bad. Some of those clouds are dark, hiding an evil who is content to wait and watch. I have to credit the patience of that evilness because it’s a soulless creature whose patience seems timeless. It waits in silence only surfacing to attack the weakest of dispositions where it gets into the recesses of their heart to embed itself.
Unfortunately for its victim, once it penetrates those walls, destruction of the mind, body and soul soon follows.
Stacey Johnston was raised in Perth, Western Australia. She is a wife and mum to four children.
Having been an avid reader most of her life, Stacey finds herself most at ease when she can lose herself in stories of romance and mystery.
Stacey has a creative way of bringing suspense into her stories which keeps her reader hanging onto every word to find out how it ends.

Each page leaves you believing you know who the culprit is but also leaves a niggling feeling deep in your belly asking “but what if it is really…” This is one series you do not want to miss!

Genres: Adult, Magical Realism

Marvin Deitz has some serious problems. His mob-connected landlord is strong-arming him out of his storefront. His therapist has concerns about his stability. He’s compelled to volunteer at the local Children’s Hospital even though it breaks his heart every week.

Oh, and he’s also the guilt-ridden reincarnation of Geoffroy Thérage, the French executioner who lit Joan of Arc’s pyre in 1431. He’s just seen a woman on a Los Angeles talk show claiming to be Joan, and absolution seems closer than it’s ever been . . . but how will he find her?

When Marvin heads to Los Angeles to locate the woman who may or may not be Joan, he’s picked up hitchhiking by Mike Vale, a self-destructive alcoholic painter traveling to his ex-wife’s funeral. As they move through a California landscape populated with “smokes” (ghostly apparitions that’ve inexplicably begun appearing throughout the southwestern US), each seeks absolution in his own way.

GUEST POST

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF KEITH ROSSON

a screenplay

 

SCENE 1

Int. scene, bedroom, night. Small three-legged dog snoring in corner.

ROSSON is startled awake by a sudden elbow to his throat. He CHOKES, SITS UP. His partner continues snoring. The dog continues snoring. ROSSON lays back down, massaging his larynx. Still half-asleep, he thinks of his burgeoning to-do list, of the fragile state of democracy, of a new story idea, of how good a donut – ten donuts – would be. The dog’s snoring reaches a crescendo, sounds like a contralto being strangled halfway through Cosi fan tutte. Eventually, ROSSON falls back to sleep.

 

SCENE 2

Ext. scene, transit center at Lombard St. and Interstate Ave., traffic passing by.

ROSSON is waiting for bus. Trash lays flattened and colorless in the gutters. A man leans on a nearby garbage can, rolled cigarette in his mouth the width of a nail. The man holding the sign for the marijuana dispensary dances on the corner, spinning his sign, rubber bands in his beard. Music strobes from the windows of passing cars. ROSSON puts his ear buds in, thinks of the story he’s writing, thinks of the novel edits he’s waiting to receive from his agent. He thinks about writing… always. The bus arrives. ROSSON gets on, opens a book, starts reading. The bus trundles along.

 

SCENE 3

Int. scene, ROSSON’s office. A pair of desks, a metal shelf. A window w/ blinds closed.

ROSSON is on the computer. He opens a file folder containing a work in progress, a new story. His agent has just provided some feedback on the novel. Music plays in the background. Someone walks down the hall outside, their shoes squeaking on the floor. ROSSON should work; there is work to be done, always always, he gauges much of his inner life through the lens of how much creative work he’s done throughout the day, creativity is a kind of sustenance to him. He knows this. It’s taken a lifetime to understand it, but he knows this about himself. He should work.

Instead he scrolls through various social media sites, becomes quickly enmeshed in current state of the world, falls into abject despondency, eventually logs off. Attempts to refocus, attempts to write, can’t stop thinking of what he just read, the images he just saw.

Distracted, furious, heartbroken, he fires off a pointless, barbed missive on said social media that is guaranteed to accomplish nothing, to provoke a handful of likeminded people to agree with him and a profound disinterest in the rest.

ROSSON sits back. Onscreen, the cursor blinks. Progress is halted on the work in progress. The work in progress is currently unworkable.

Eventually, after hours of this, and a few hundred words painfully eked out, with a kind of heartsick rattle to his chest like something vital’s come loose, ROSSON locks up his office and takes the bus back home.

 

SCENE 4

Int. scene, bedroom, night. Small three-legged dog snoring in corner.

I’ll do better tomorrow, ROSSON thinks. I have to somehow learn to remain uninvested enough in the world as it is. Or to remain more invested in the world I’m making, not the one I live in. But it’s hard. How do we do that? How do we craft some other world on the page when a kind of craven dystopiahere, nowseems to loom closer every day?

A snort, a shuffle.

I’ll do better tomorrow.

ROSSON’s eyes close.

A sharp cry, muffled.

The dog has stopped snoring.

Something, briefly, touches his leg. Insectile and skittering.

Before he can sit up

 

THE END

Efforts in vain

ruthgjuliano

Haven’t sold a book in a while? Marked the price down and still nothing? Feel like you’re shouting into the wind? Are your efforts in vain? I’m going to say no. It certainly feels like it sometimes. But no.

Let’s get basic. Human creation occurs when hundreds of millions of sperm look for an egg. Tens of thousands make it as far as the gate, and a couple of hundred of them make it to the egg. The one that penetrates the egg gives its twenty three chromosomes to the process and they combine to make a person.  One. Just one sperm.

So you’re writing and you’re marketing,  and you’re watching all these other people succeeding, and you’re feeling invisible. But it only takes one. One ad seen by the right person, one review that inspires someone to buy, one person to tell a friend, and so on.

Almost Impossible by Nicole Williams

 

 

 

 

AP new - synopsis.jpg

 

 

Fans of Sarah Dessen, Stephanie Perkins, and Jenny Han will delight as the fireworks spark and the secrets fly in this delicious summer romance from a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.

When Jade decided to spend the summer with her aunt in California, she thought she knew what she was getting into. But nothing could have prepared her for Quentin. Jade hasn’t been in suburbia long and even she knows her annoying (and annoyingly cute) next-door neighbor spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E.

And when Quentin learns Jade plans to spend her first American summer hiding out reading books, he refuses to be ignored. Sneaking out, staying up, and even a midnight swim, Quentin is determined to give Jade days–and nights–worth remembering.

But despite their storybook-perfect romance, every time Jade moves closer, Quentin pulls away. And when rumors of a jilted ex-girlfriend come to light, Jade knows Quentin is hiding a secret–and she’s determined to find out what it is.

Amanda’s Review

I was enchanted by the by this sweet young adult love story and the quick wit and flirtatious banter between Quentin and Jade. I loved their innocent relationship with a not so unpredictable twist. Stories of first loves and innocence captured are treasures no one gets too old to enjoy.

Quentin was one of those characters you can’t help but love. He’s the responsible green that even with his baggage, you’d love your daughter to meet and fall in love.

The ending left a little to be desired. I don’t have to be spoon-fed a complete conclusion, but I would’ve liked to see a bit more of what happened or maybe an epilogue. Regardless of that, it was a sweet, easy read that made me feel like there may still be some good left in our young adults.

Keys to Success from a Completely Unsuccessful Person by Joel C Cunningham

 

Satire, Humor, Self-Help
Date Published: 12-15-17
Dear Reader,
Knowledge, success, hope–this book will provide you with none of these things.
For those who are curious to check out the contents and “guidance” provided in this book, I would like to offer a brief, but important warning before you embark on your treacherous journey. I am this book’s editor. I have thoroughly handled, absorbed, and regurgitated the contents of this book over and over again, and while most of the content in this “self-help” book is, in my professional opinion, completely ridiculous and easily recognized as such, I fear that some of you who read this book may sadly find yourselves duped by Joel’s terrible advice.
Speaking modestly, Keys to Success from a Completely Unsuccessful Person represents is a collection of thoughts, ideas, and errant opinions from the delusional mind of a self-proclaimed self-help guru. Somehow, Joel has miraculously and single-handedly compiled more nonsense, utter gibberish, and complete lunacy into one book than any other author in all of human history that I am presently aware of.
Again, while I do believe that the majority of readers will find themselves deeply amused at the sheer idiocy in this anthology of stupidity, I fear that some poor souls may just get sucked into the author’s delusions. For that reason, I have provided this warning to please disregard Joel’s terrible advice. For most readers, I expect and hope that they will be amused by the book’s clear guidance on how not to find success and find humor in what the book attempts to instruct them to do.
Perhaps most importantly, I believe that although my hand was forced to publish this book of unrefined nonsense by Joel and my superiors, Joel will finally be exposed to the world for who he really is–a completely unsuccessful person.

 

Review

Do not go into this with thoughts of it being a serious self help book or you are going to be thoroughly confused. Go into it with the mind set of a child that hasn’t been ruined by the worst parts of the real world. if you do not have a sense of humor you won’t make it past the preface. The back and forth between the editor and Wally would have made any school aged boy proud. Their shenanigans between them was hilarious. I liked the fact that it all boiled down to something everyone can relate to in real life.

Blurb:
Phi Alpha Pi is the oldest and largest sorority on campus and new president Lizbeth has a busy senior year ahead of her. She’s determined to keep her sorority in good standing on campus after a year on academic probation. She’s trying to manage the new sorority house manager, Mrs. C, who has her own ideas about how to support the sorority sisters. All while trying to find balance with her own academic goals to complete an honors thesis, graduate, and decide her future plans.

The last thing Lizbeth expects is her anger when Wil, a new member of the Alpha Pi fraternity, pushes every one of her buttons. Lizbeth finds Wil, a new transfer to the university with his best friend, to be rude, snobby, and judgmental. Even though she tries to avoid him, he seems to be everywhere, scowling with displeasure when he sees her. That is, until his Thanksgiving proclamation of love. That causes Lizbeth to reconsider how she sees the world.

SHAYLA BLACK

Shayla Black is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than sixty novels. For over fifteen years, she’s written contemporary, erotic, paranormal, and historical romances via traditional, independent, foreign, and audio publishers. Her books have sold millions of copies and been published in a dozen languages.

Raised an only child, Shayla occupied herself with lots of daydreaming, much to the chagrin of her teachers. In college, she found her love for reading and realized that she could have a career publishing the stories spinning in her imagination. Though she graduated with a degree in Marketing/Advertising and embarked on a stint in corporate America to pay the bills, her heart has always been with her characters. She’s thrilled that she’s been living her dream as a full-time author for the past seven years.

Shayla currently lives in North Texas with her wonderfully supportive husband, her teenage daughter, and two very spoiled cats. In her “free” time, she enjoys reality TV, reading, and listening to an eclectic blend of music.

SIERRA CARTWRIGHT

Sierra Cartwright was born in England, and her early childhood was spent traipsing through castles and dreaming of happily-ever afters. She was raised in the Wild West and now lives in Galveston, Texas. She loves the beach and the artistic vibe of the island.

The international #1 best-selling author began writing books in elementary school, where her wonderful librarian “published” her first book, which was edited by her mum! Thankfully Mum was gentle when she told Sierra that baby was not spelled “babby.”

Sierra has one incredible daughter — her “PA Extraordinaire” and right-hand lady.

KATANA COLLINS

When Katana Collins was younger and stole her mother’s Harlequins to read beneath the covers with a flashlight, she wanted to read about the tough as nails heroine. The perfectly imperfect girl with quirks and attitude and sass. And the anti-heroes who were anything but “Prince Charming.” Forget the knight on a white horse… she wanted the bad boy on a motorcycle.

So, now, she writes those romance novels she craved to see on the shelves all those years ago—the sassy heroines. The badass heroes. Since penning her first romance novel back in 2012, she is now an international author with 15 published books and counting.

She lives in Portland, Maine, with an ever-growing brood of rescue animals: a kind of mean cat, a really doofy lab, a very mellow chihuahua, and a very not mellow cairn terrier puppy… oh yeah, there’s a husband somewhere in that mix, too. She can usually be found hunched over her laptop in a cafe, guzzling gallons of coffee, and wearing fabulous (albeit sometimes impractical) shoes.

But the simple truth is … she’s just a normal woman struggling to pay the bills while raising her children in a home where they feel empowered, supported, and loved.

My life was finally perfect. No more cancer, a beautiful girlfriend, and a baby on the way.  I couldn’t have been happier…then bam!  I’m in a dark dingy cell being held for ransom.

I’m nothing more than a pawn…a bargaining chip for a cure that hasn’t been found. I either have to escape…or become a killer to get out of the hands of the man that my brother put behind bars years ago.

I won’t let him destroy my family and send us all on the run again.

It’s my turn to be the hero.

I can either kill or be killed.
