Author Interview - Connie Wilson - Laughing through LIfe & Giveaway !!

Today I have the Author of Laughing Through Life - Connie Wilson to answer a few questions and give us some insight into herself !





Where do you live ?

1) I live in East Moline, Illinois on the Illinois side of the Mississippi River in what is known as the Quad Cities (despite the fact there are something like 10 cities accounting for 500,000 people and nobody knows what the "Quad" really stands for. Our biggest claim to fame seems to be that Cary Grant died here in Davenport, Iowa). I am about one-half mile from the Mighty Mississippi, but since I also have a condo in the heart of Chicago about a block from the lake (because the grandchildren are in Chicago), I go back and forth quite regularly. My son and the twins pictured on the cover of the book live in Chicago and there are many writers' groups there that I belong to in Chicago, such as IWPA (Illinois Women's Press Association), AWP (American Writing Program), Thriller Writers and MWA (Midwest Writers' Association...for nonfiction writers.)

2) As for animals, I've always had cats. First cat: Snookum. Then, the Siamese cat (Sam). Then, in no particular order, Merill, Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Beane, Fraidy Cat, Kitty Kelley and Lucy. I did have a black Labrador when I was a child, but it jumped up on a neighbor girl and she sat down on a piece of glass. No more Blackie, the Labrador, after that.

Do you have a muze or someone who inspires you to write  how long have you been writing for ?

3) I have been paid to write something for over half a century, since I was 10 years old, when I began interviewing people for our local newspaper (the Independence, Iowa "Bulletin Journal") because the editor thought it would be cute to have an elementary-school aged child writing a few feature story pieces and interviewing some of the locals. Laughing through Life was my attempt to record some of the funny stories involved in child-rearing, teaching school and following the 2004 and 2008 presidential candidates. (I still have another nonfiction book with pictures that I may write, some day, about my adventures traveling to the DNC and RNC and Belmont Town Hall meeting and the Ron Paul Rally for America, and following Rudy Giuiliani around Florida during the 2008 campaign.) I read and enjoyed Erma Bombeck's columns, when she was writing them, the "Peanuts" comic strips, and I like David Sedaris' observations on life in most of his books, so I decided to try to combine those approaches in this book.


4) Muse: Since another group I am an active, voting member of is HWA (Horror Writers' Association...whose President, Rocky Wood, is from Australia), one of the people I interviewed who has been unfailingly supportive is William F. Nolan, author of "Logan's Run" and 85 other novels. Bill has encouraged me and made me believe in myself as a writer and would come the closest to "a muse." I also had a wonderful short story instructor at the University of Chicago (Dr. Barbara Croft) who took me out in the hall and told me I should just go home and write. Of course, having interviewed such great writers as David Morrell, Kurt Vonnegut (when 19), John Irving, Joe Hill (Stephen King's son), Anne Perry, Frederik Pohl and others makes an impression. When I was in college at the University of Iowa,. Nelson Algren and Kurt Vonnegut were instructors on campus, as was David Morrell, and John Irving was a student there at the time. Hard not to be inspired by such great writers.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time ?

5) In my spare time, I read, play with my grandchildren (pictured on the cover), review 9 television shows weekly for Yahoo, write 3 political pieces for Yahoo (I was named the Associated Content political reporter of the year for the 2008 campaign by that half-million member blog, now owned by Yahoo), blog at www.WeeklyWilson and www.AssociatedContent.com, go to movies and review movies, go to concerts and review concerts, travel back and forth between the Quad Cities and Chicago (a 7-hour roundtrip drive) and travel elsewhere (preferably somewhere warm), depending on the season. I also attend a number of writing conferences. I formerly founded and ran 2 businesses (Sylvan Learning Center #3301 in Bettendorf, Iowa and a Prometric Testing Center) after a lengthy teaching career, so I'm used to multi-tasking, and I'm now publishing quite a bit, especially E-books. I taught for 33 years, and the teacher years in the immediate family, which number 150, go back uninterruptedly to 1927. I've taught writing at all 6 Quad City colleges. "The Christmas Cats in Silly Hats" just went "live" on Amazon and Barnes & Noble this week, an illustrated children's book Christmas present for the twins, Ava and Elise. (Check it out! It's darling!)

What are you currenlty working on ?

6) I am currently finishing up Hellfire & Damnation II, the sequel to Hellfire and Damnation (www.HellfireandDamnationthebook.com), which placed 7th out of 45 short story collections for Best Short Story Collection on preliminary Bram Stoker balloting in 2010. (Stephen King was in 10th place at that point, but subsequently carried the day with "Full Dark, No Stars.") That collection is organized around Dante's "Inferno" and the 9 Circles of Hell and each story illustrates one of the circles of hell. I am also working to finish a trilogy of novels. The first novel, The Color of Evil is complete and is about an 8-year-old boy with paranormal abilities. The first book takes him forward to the age of 16. The second book in the series, Red Is for Rage, will take him through his senior year of high school. The third and final book will take him into his freshman year of college when the government learns of his powers. I have 2 very big houses interested in the series, [but never count your chickens before they hatch.] The first book will be published in 2012, if all goes well.

What are you current future plans with writing ?

7) My current and future plan in writing remains "to write one of everything," with the exception of erotica, romances, fantasy, and anything else that doesn't interest me. I've already written one novel (Out of Time. Lachesis Press, 2008) from the sci-fi romantic thriller plot of another, and a screenplay based on that novel won a 2007 "Writer's Digest" screenplay award. I wrote a trilogy of ghost stories set along Route 66 (www.GhostlyTalesofRoute66.com), traveling the route collecting them, and a scholarly book on teaching (Training the Teacher As A Champion, 1989, PLS Bookstores). I wrote a book in 2003 that combined humor, poetry, pictures and recipes (Both Sides Now). Then there was It Came from the '70s: From The Godfather to Apocalypse Now, a collection of 50 of my movie reviews from the "Quad City Times," with 76 photos, major cast and interactive trivia, which I put out at this time last year and which has won 5 national awards. I have published Hellfire & Damnation , The Bureau (a short story that is an excerpt from Hellfire & Damnation II, once again illustrating the 9th Circle of Hell in the second book), Laughing through Life, and The Christmas Cats in Silly Hats, all this year. Next year, I will have at least 2 books out, if not more. I also plan to take the characters I created for Ghostly Tales of Route 66, Vols. I, II and III on a road trip. I call them "Four from Flagstaff" and they will go to Key West and have some ghostly adventures at some point in time. I also just finished covering the Chicago Film Festival for Yahoo most of October and hope to do more such coverage of film festivals. Our Homecoming Queen dropped dead of a brain aneurysm a month ago. Tempis fugit. I'm writing as fast as I can. Time's winged chariot hurries near.


8) Favorite beverages: Dr. Pepper and white zinfandel (Berenger's, usually).


9) Favorite writing spot: my writing lair directly across the street from the Field Museum in Chicago in the second bedroom/office. I go there to isolate myself and produce book(s) when I have a deadline. I can see the dinosaur head out in front of the Museum, Lake Michigan, and the blue top of the Shedd Aquarium as I write. It's perfect.


10) Favorite movie: I have reviewed so many movies (my passion) that it is difficult to give just ONE "favorite" but I always mention the original "The Manchurian Candidate." This year, I've been very impressed at the film festival by the film "We Have to Talk About Kevin." Tilda Swinton is so powerful in her role. I have also really liked "The Ides of March" and "Moneyball" this year.


11) Again, there are so many fabulous books: who could pick (or read) just one? I do remember being blown away by The World According to Garp and I was both awed, honored and terrified to interview Kurt Vonnegut as a 19-year-old college student at the University of Iowa in 1963-64, whose books like Cat's Cradle and God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater, or Pearls Before Swine were very influential during my college years as an English major, as was Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. More recently, I really liked Jonathan Lethem's Motherless Brooklyn. All of these books have a serio-comic vein running through them, as you will know if you've read them. [And if you haven't, you should.] I could also mention all the "greats" (Faulkner, Hemingway, Fitzgerald) because they are, of course, hugely influential on all writers, but I'm sticking to the humorous, for this interview.


12) Favorite vacation spot: As I mentioned, my daughter is probably going to visit in Australia on a work visa for a year, so Australia, here we come. I've always wanted to visit Australia and New Zealand. We own three time shares in Mazatlan and Cancun and will be spending 4 weeks in Mexico on their pristine beaches in January and April, as we have for the past 18 years.


13) My favorite flavor of ice cream is probably butter pecan or butter brickle, although I also like chocolate and anything with nuts in it (Cherry Garcia is also very good!)

What makes you laugh ?

14) I laugh because laughter is therapeutic, and many things make me laugh. I used to love the short films of W.C. Fields. I liked Abbot & Costello when a young girl, especially those silly films where they'd "Meet the Mummy" or Frankenstein. I loved "Barefoot in the Park" (Jane Fonda, Robert Redford, et. al.) Some of my favorite funny films are "Lost in America" (Albert Brooks), "Animal House," and the very Grade "B" movie, "Saving Silverman," which I showed at my 57th birthday party (my favorite part involves a raccoon). On American television right now, "Modern Family" is great with wonderful writing, but
"The Office," "Community," "Parks and Recreation" and "Thirty Rock" are good on American TV. (I also like the Australian series "Rake.") I prefer witty comedy to slapstick or dirty joke humor.


I laugh and hope the world will laugh with me, because the alternative (crying) gives me a tremendous sinus headache. Doesn't it you?
Thanks Connie !!

Kiss me Crazy blog Tour guest Post with Ednah Walters * Sisterhood**




Welcome to the Kiss me Crazy blog tour !! Today I have Ednah here with her tribute to her writing sisters !! ** Sisterhood**




Good morning and thank you for inviting me to stop by your site on the blog tour for KISS ME CRAZY, book 3 of the FITZGERALD FAMILY series.  



Today I want to pay tribute to my girls, my writing sisters, these amazing women who’ve endured and toiled with me by weeding out the junk in my WIP and streamlining it. They’ve guided me through the jungle of the publishing industry, shared publishing tidbits, marketing tips, and the ups and downs of our daily lives.



Thank you, Jennifer Laurens, Dawn Brown, Theresa Bellew, and Chicki Brown. They are all published authors with several books under their belts, or soon-to-be published—congrats Tere.  You are all amazing writers and wonderful friends.



I’m big on sisterhoods. Women helping women.  Supporting each other. In my books, I always have my heroine interact with her female friends, whether they are relatives or just girlfriends. Here’s an excerpt from KISS ME CRAZY when Kara’s friends tease her about Baron.



RAH, RAH to WOMEN FRIENDS.





Silence filled the limo as it sped away. The interior lights illuminated her friends’ curious gazes, but Kara chose to ignore them. She was still trying to catch her breath after that brief moment with Baron a few seconds ago. Her raging hormones were turning her into a nymphomaniac—she couldn’t come within a foot of the man without thinking about how he’d taste or noticing the sexy way he looked when he squinted, the curve of his lips when he smiled. Even the little scar on his chin fascinated her.

“What was that about?” Chloe asked, breaking into Kara’s thoughts.

Kara knew exactly what her friend meant but chose to misunderstand. “Sorry I was delayed. I know how you get crabby when you’re hungry.”

“Don’t try to make this about me, girl. Okay?” Chloe looked at her sister and Renee for support. “I’m talking about that little scene out there with Mr. Scrumptious Candy.”

“Business, Chloe. I know you recognized Baron,” Kara added the dig.

“That was your Baron?” Shannon jumped in. “I mean, your boss?”

“Hot, isn’t he?” Chloe smacked her lips.

Shannon’s eyes were wide as she added, “How can you work with him without wanting to… you know?”

“Jump him is what my brilliant but virgin sister is trying to say,” Chloe added, throwing her sister a teasing look. “Quit poking me with your boney elbow, Shannon.”

“Then stop making fun of me,” Shannon retorted. “Just because I don’t share details of my sex life with you doesn’t make me a virgin.”

Chloe sucked her teeth. “Then stop acting so damn repressed all the time. It’s irritating. And you’d better not try that act tonight either. I didn’t pull you out of your place to have you warm a chair and turn down dance after dance.” Chloe pointed at Renee and Kara. “Now back to you two.” Chloe’s gaze zeroed in on Renee’s expression, but the assistant D.A. stared right back with a tiny smile, as though she was enjoying a private joke.

Chloe glared at her and turned to Kara. “Are you keeping a secret from me, Kara? Because that little scene back there—placing a wrap around your shoulders, gazing into your eyes while playing with your hair—is not a normal way a boss acts toward an employee. Do I smell an office romance? Not that I blame you or him. It’s about time you got some. You can’t keep flying solo forever.” She made rocking moves on her seat, grinning.

Kara’s ears burned. Chloe’s bluntness shocked her at times. “Chloe, there’s nothing between Baron and me.”

Renee laughed. “Tell her, Kara. Tell her how he’s not your type.”

This was the problem when a friend knew your business; she put it all out there for everyone to see. Although the three of them were tight—Shannon usually used her job as an excuse and rarely hung out with them—she’d only discussed Baron with Renee.

“He’s aloof and arrogant, right?” Renee continued.

Kara clenched her teeth, refusing to be drawn into discussing Baron.

“As chauvinistic as they come. And don’t let me get started on his womanizing ways,” Renee added. “In fact, most of the Fitzgerald men are like that…gorgeous, successful, charming, and bona fide skirt-chasers. In college, Baron and his twin brother made a bet to see how many coeds they’d—”

“Stop it, Renee.” Kara shook her in confusion. Renee grew up with the Fitzgeralds and knew them quite well, but Kara had never heard her talk like this. What was her problem? She’d even hugged Baron just a few minutes ago for crying out loud. “The man is my boss and I’m not going to sit here while you besmirch his character. For starters, I don’t know or care how he acted when he was in college, because the Baron I know carefully picks and chooses the women he beds. He’s neither cold nor arrogant. He just doesn’t wear his feelings on his sleeve, which is very important in his line of work…in any line of work. He’s also very single-minded when going after something, a very admirable trait if you ask me. Kind of like you.” She glared pointedly at Renee. “Or you Chloe. Spend time with him and you’ll see how brilliant he is. He’s not arrogant or….”

Kara’s voice tailed off when she noticed the expressions on her friends’ faces. She’d walked right into a trap and given away her rapidly escalating feelings toward Baron.

Chill Run - Russell Brooks Book Review & Giveaway !

Id  like to welcome you all here today I have Russell Brooks Latest story Chill Run up for review !! I must say  for all those who are after a suspenseful thriller filled with oodles of goodies then this read is for you !! Keep reading till the end to find out how you to can get your own copy of ** Chill Run **.

Here is some info on Russell and his cover, blurb and book review !! Enjoy !


Who’s Russell?

Russell Brooks is the author of Pandora's Succession, Unsavory Delicacies, and the upcoming mystery/thriller Chill Run. He considers himself fortunate to have been selected to the Canadian Track Team in the 100 metre and 200 metre sprint events and have his degree in Biology from Indiana University. When he’s not busy writing, Russell’s blogging about injustice with his Op-Ed style essays or reciting poems or novel excerpts on YouTube.

As for his books, Russell has been compared to a young Robert Ludlum. His books have also attracted fans of New York Times bestselling author Barry Eisler.


You know a publicity stunt has backfired when someone dies.
Starving author Eddie Barrow, Jr., will do anything to get a book deal with a NYC publisher. Even if it means getting caught by the media while engaging in S&M with a female celebrity as a publicity stunt. What Eddie gets instead are details of a billion dollar fraud scheme from a suicidal client who's fatally shot minutes later. Now on the run from the law and the killers, Eddie seeks help from two unlikely friends—an alcoholic and a dominatrix.
With few resources, Eddie races to clear his name, unveil the fraud scheme, and expose the killers before he becomes their next victim.





My thoughts !!


Russell Brooks have woven mystery, suspense, murder, betrayal and even loyalty throughout his story Chill Run.


An enjoyable suspenseful thriller that will take you on Roller coaster ride with Eddie, Corey and Jordyn. After the threesome plan to expose the female Ceo to gain stardom hoping to snag a book deal, Eddie finds himself being accused of murder, with friends at tow. Eddie and his friends are Running for their lives.


Eddie has a knack for unleashing mystery, along the way he makes discoveries no normal person would, I think with having his writer skills in place he easily sees things that a normal person would not. This helps him to uncover certain aspects throughout this murder and helps to expose the entire plan.  But at what cost ??


I really enjoyed the character development. Close nit friendships that are bound and loyalty hard to find. The characters easily likable and funny and other moments friendship shone  through ! 


A smooth flowing storyline, filled with all the goodies one could want in suspenseful thriller. Moments that will send Chills down your spine and others where you grasping at your reader in hope that Eddie survives the ordeal to become the successful writer that originally got him into this mess.


Chapters run smoothly from one till the next, curve balls thrown in and twists and turns you certainly won’t see coming! Russell has created a thriller that will certainly keep you guessing the entire read, from beginning to end and even have you left wanting more. Think Roller coaster ride - Chill Run is certainly that !


An ending a reader loves to see, but an overall storyline that has filled every query, question or aspect of a read.


Recommended to all who enjoy action, adventure, murder, mystery and suspense and even a little added extra for a laugh.


** Russell created scenes where you could easily envisage - aka poor Eddie in his attire!! That would’ve been a site for sore eyes lol! But definitely was put forth well. Male Dominitrix was just not for Eddie ! ** grins **


Short read at only 200 pages but a story to add to your reader for a quick afternoon filled with suspense.

Laughing Through Life - Connie Wilson Book Review

"Laughing through Life" is the book of funny essays and observations that critics have called "Erma-Bombeck-meets-David-Sedaris," with hilarious results. You'll find yourself nodding your head in recognition of many of the situations that a young mother, teacher and business-owner encountered while raising 2 children born 19 years apart (PTA membership from 1973 to 2010!). Connie's adventures while covering the 2004 and 2008 presidential campaigns with press passes also will amuse---especially if you thought "W" was a bonehead. (If you are not a progressive, you might not laugh quite as heartily. Be warned.) Smile. Enjoy! Laugh through life with Ava & Elise Wilson, the author's 2-year-old twin granddaughters, who provide a never-ending supply of funny anecdotes, (just when she thought it was safe to go back in the water.)





My thoughts


Connie has woven this story filled with short stories from getting her ears pierced and receiving cauliflower ears, to dealing with other not so fun, but amusing obstacles in life. Other parts in life requiring more depth than your average day .

Moments where I’m sure as a reader you will be grinning and thinking to yourself I would’ve been going ballistic by now,...lol

To other moments where I’m sure that things may have not seemed to get better.

A short fun filled read, not my normal genre that I read however enlightening and amusing.. An ok read for me but Depending upon what genres you enjoy to read, Im sure that you will find the funny antics and moments throughout amusing . Also thinking to yourself ! Ive been there and done that lol.. Or something close to it !

Demon Slave - Danielle D Smith - 18 + Book review !

Today I have Danielle 's latest release Demon Slave !! A definete treat for all those who enjoy a read filled with BDSM and norty sexual excapades !! Here is the cover ** Dani designed it herself - Darn smokin !! ** and blurb and my review !!

Rose, Nephil daughter of a Warrior of Heaven, has betrayed her celestial heritage by falling for the guy from the wrong side of the tracks: Skriker, tattooed half-demon hunter, and the most irresistible chunk of hard meat that she has ever taken to her bed.

Rose knows that there is no love in all of Creation more forbidden than that between an angel and a demon, and that knowledge has left her terribly fragmented, despite her passionate love for her Halfling bad boy.

As Skriker's "Dirty 30" approaches, she will offer him the ultimate birthday gift: she will be his devoted sexual slave for three days and three nights, laying aside her angelic pride to fully commit to his pleasure (and hers) with every part of her being...and neither Heaven nor Hell will have any power to stop it.

**Publisher's Warning: This sordid tale contains graphic BDSM sex, including forceful oral and anal sex, bondage, blindfolding, slapping/spanking, nipple clamps, verbal obloquy, hot wax, and crazy hardcore sex in a church.**





<><> <><> <><> <><>
Demons Slave will take you into a world like no other. Demon Skriker and Nephill Rose come together to celebrate Skrikers Dirty 30th and Rose decides to give herself completely to him - To be his play bunny - sex slave - booty waking and submissive slave, Rose is in for the Ride of a lifetime.

Well Knowing that Rose is the superior being if you may call it and the stronger one, Rose is willing to give herself to Skriker in more ways than one ** waggles eyebrows **. Be his submissive slave - let him do things no other man has ventured into and takes Rose to heights of pleasure where I’m sure she was almost ready to spontaneously combust!! Yes it’s hot, raunchy, painful and pleasurable!! Three days and three nights of loving - smoochin - hot romping sex and body bumping. !! Three nights and days she will never forget !

Some of the scenes in this story may not tickle your fancy - the pain inflicted ones - but keep in mind each to their own and this is all by Rose's choice!! This angel wants her slice of Demon boy!!

Rose puts aside her angel heritage and succumbs to the Devil inside ** inserts song here **...

In Demon Slave Danielle introduces BDSM - and this being Pleasure & Pain, cuffs, nipple clamps and oodles or more goodies Rose could never have imagined. ! BDSM is somewhat a hidden lifestyle to some and is not for everyone so be warned that Dani has introduced us in more ways than you can imagine. ** Wink **

Pain brought upon for some can give pleasure, and keep in mind that throughout this read it’s all consensual and Rose not only gets her panties ripped clean off but gets taken on a ride of a lifetime. Even though certain scenes it may come across forceful this is what Rose wants !!! and Skriker is the one to gift it....

Smoking hot sex scenes are filled throughout this read, and Danielle has outlined her story well, put forth strong emotions between both characters, and set forth her Demon Slave. Rose has stepped aside, given herself to Skriker he is her Master - Demon Bad boy, camel smokin , hornbag !! I’m sure the pages on your reader will be wafting with steam, reading about this pairs sexcapade !! Your panties will be bunching and you will feel every slap, the blood surfacing after the clamps are removed, the hot wax,  and Rose in her height of ecstasy!! As far as the rest - Ill let you imagnition take over lol !! 


 Yes Dani has portrayed all emotions that will leave you with baited breathe lol !!

However even though Rose has given Skriker her biggest sacrifice she still dwells on marriage. Skriker wants forever and Rose is still holding back!! I’m sure Dani has more in store for us .. But if you’re after something short, hot, tantalizing, sinful and norty then this read is for you!!

I didnt go much into the story read the Blurb and try this sinful sexy read all for yourself !!

Vampire for Christmas

by Felicity Heaton
It was one last mission. Shannon, a demon hunter with the agency, is looking forward to leaving behind the small town and the vampire she's been stuck with for the past two years. Things are getting complicated fast and she wants out. A fresh start, free of her vampire partner, awaits her if she can survive their final mission and the lonely Christmas holidays.
It was one last mission. Rafe, a vampire doing time with the agency, watches it approach with dread weighing heavily in his stomach. Two years of working with Shannon has been difficult, especially since he started falling for her, but he doesn't want their partnership to end. He has barely a few days to make her face her feelings and stop her from leaving, and he intends to do just that.
When a slimy demon threatens the season of peace and goodwill, it's the chance Rafe has been waiting for and the moment Shannon secretly fears. Rafe's determination to prise open her heart and her own resolve to keep it closed clash as violently as they do with the demon, and threatens to end as messily.
Can Rafe make Shannon see that his love for her is real and that she feels something for him too? Can Shannon face her fears and her past, and stop herself from running away from both? Will a wish on a star bring her what her heart truly desires—a vampire for Christmas?

Prophecy: Caelestis and Aurorea

by F E Heaton
The final battle draws closer. Prophecy's world becomes darker and more dangerous, pushing her to the limit and testing her strength and her heart, almost breaking her. Old friends turn their backs, leaving her to fight with the help of an unlikely ally and forcing her to call on the devastatingly seductive and powerful Lord Hyperion for assistance.
Struggling to rescue Valentine from the malicious hands of her blood brother, Arkalus and the lord of Aurorea, Kalinor, Prophecy discovers just how powerful she is and how far people will go to stop her from fulfilling her destiny. Lives are lost, battles are won, and the scroll foretelling the prophecy is finally completed, but nothing can prepare them for what lies ahead.
When her visions show her the path that must be taken, will Prophecy be able to do what is necessary? Are Prophecy and Valentine ready to command the power they'd never thought would be theirs? And are they strong enough to fight the evil of their true enemy?
Following on from Prophecy: Child of Light, the tension rises and love grows in Prophecy: Caelestis & Aurorea, a thrilling second part to this story that draws you into a dark, dangerous world of vampires, magic and the war to end all wars.

Prophecy: Dark Moon Rising

by F E Heaton
An enemy with unimaginable power and bloodlines with centuries of hatred bred into them, two things that threaten to tear Prophecy and Valentine apart as they fight for their lives and their future together. Their vain attempt to join their houses into one army drains the last of their strength, leaving them more vulnerable than they've ever been. The tension escalates between the bloodlines, and, more dangerously, between Valentine, Prophecy and Venturi. As everything crumbles around them, defeat seems inevitable.
In one decisive move, their enemy turns the tables against them, taking what is most important to Prophecy and leaving her to fear that the terrifying visions she's been having are coming true. An enemy becomes a friend, guiding her in her time of need, and a friend becomes an enemy. Death, destruction and danger surround her, but the help of an old ally brings her the army she needs and the dark moon brings her the power to fight the legions of Hell.
When the time comes, will Prophecy be able to do what's necessary or will the sacrifice she must make be too painful to go through with? Does she have the strength to stop Hell from being unleashed into the world and save the ones she loves at the same time?
The dramatic conclusion to the Prophecy story, Prophecy: Dark Moon Rising is a gripping tale of love and war that will take hold of you, set your heart racing and not let you go until the very last page.

Winter's Kiss

by F E Heaton
Their lord drinks blood and they are dead men walking. The tales of the mansion don't stop Nika from falling for one of the guards, but when wolves attack her and he rides to her rescue, she discovers that her knight is anything but saintly. He is a vampire and she is becoming a werewolf, and love between their species is forbidden—the penalty death.
Winter's world is shaken beyond salvation and his allegiance to his bloodline tested as he watches the woman he's fallen for turn into a werewolf. His heart demands vengeance and that he protects her, both from the werewolf now hunting for her and from himself, but she tempts him more than he can bear and it isn't long into their journey before he's torn between upholding the law and succumbing to desire.
Will Nika be able to convince Winter to leave his world and stay with her or will she spend eternity dreaming of Winter's kiss?
