Book Of Death by S Evan Townsend Spotlight & Tour

Author: S. Evan Townsend

Publisher:   World Castle Publishing

Length:  266 pages

Sub-Genres: Vampires, Paranormal Entities 

 


BLURB:


They live among us. We know they are there. No government can control them; no authority can stop them. Some are evil. Some are good. All are powerful. They inhabit our myths and fairy tales. But what if they were real, the witches, wizards, and fairy godmothers? What if they were called "adepts" and were organized into guilds for mutual protection and benefit? And what if some of them discovered a power that other adepts could not match.


During the turbulent 1960s, when American adept Peter Branton agrees to go to Transylvania for the CIA, he suspects it's not about ball bearings as he was told. What he finds is a plot that could kill millions of people and plunge the world into eternal tyranny and bloodshed. Branton doesn't know it, but he's about to face the adept guilds' worst nightmare: practicing necromancers with a taste for human blood.


EXCERPT :


I'd never seen this type of meta before. At least I assumed that's what it was, as the wooden man inexorably walked toward me with a creak of moving wood, like tree branches in a heavy wind. It was raising its arms for another blow so I stepped back and shot an airbolt at it. I heard wood crack, but that didn't stop it. It swung again and its wooden fist pounded into my face, knocking me down and back on the sidewalk. Somewhere I heard screams and yells. A guy sitting on the sidewalk, his back to a storefront, muttered, "Wow, bad trip, man."

The Indian was bending over, its face expressionless except for the painted-on peace sign as it seemed to prepare for another attack. I shot fire at it, assuming old dry wood would ignite easily, and it did: the hippie dress went up in flames, and now the monster was a burning mass, still attacking me. It smacked me again with a flaming arm and I suffered from both the impact and the burns. Nearly screaming, I scrambled away on hands and knees. I don't think I'd ever been that scared. Still it came, oblivious to the fact it was on fire.

A motorcycle cop I hadn't noticed jumped off his bike, pulled his service revolver, and shot it into the Indian with six cracks of bullets being fired. It had no effect other than sending burning splinters of wood flying. The cop suddenly looked frightened, and was gripping his billy club but taking no further action.

People were screaming loudly now. I looked around, looking for an escape. If I could teleport away I might escape, but I could see no clear place to teleport to. Briefly I wondered what happened to Ernestine and if she were safe. I didn't sense the presence of another adept, but I didn't really have the ability to be quiet enough to do so. I just hoped she was okay.

The burning Indian smacked me again, hard, in the chest and I felt as if my feet left the ground as I was knocked into a car's side. I heard and felt sheet metal crumple and knew I'd hit the car hard. My vision was going gray. But I realized my shirt was on fire and that kept me from passing out; if I passed out I was probably dead. I pulled water from the air to douse the fire, but this took time and the Indian was on me again, even though it was moving very slowly.

I wondered if I'd survive until the wooden Indian had been consumed by the flames. It hit me again, knocking me to the sidewalk. There was an unpleasant smell and I realized my hair was burning. I used my bare hand to pat out the flames. This gave the Indian time to hit me again, hard. It almost felt as if I flew through the air and was slapped painfully to the sidewalk, the Indian still lumbering toward me.

In desperation I shot another airbolt at it. It must have been on the verge of falling apart because that hit blew it into flaming pieces that scattered over the street and also hit me, burning my skin or singeing my clothes. But it was no longer attacking.
 
 
Why Urban Fantasy
I wrote this novel which eventually became known as Agent of Artifice.  My publisher took one look at it and said, "it's an urban fantasy."  I had to google "urban fantasy" (up until then I was calling it a "historical fantasy spy thriller").
According to Wikipedia, for a fantasy to be urban: "The prerequisite is that they must be primarily set in a city."   To me, the archetypical urban fantasy is the Underworld movie franchise.  But when I sat down to write the Adept Series, I didn't not say, "hey, let's write three urban fantasy books."   Actually, I wanted to write a novel set during World War II using a universe I developed when writing a short story called "Lesser Magic."  From there the stories grew.
I have an awful confession for a fantasy writer: I don't read a lot of fantasy/paranormal.  In fact, I'm still getting over the idea that I wrote three fantasy novels.  I never read fantasy before except for Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit and some fantasies by Larry Niven and Robert Heinlein.  The thing I liked about Heinlein and Niven's fantasies is that they had rules and were internally consistent.  When I read other fantasies (and I, admit, I may have drawn my curve without enough data points), it seemed anything was possible and there were no rules.  So when I set out to write fantasy (which, I didn't set out to do, really), I developed rules.  Rules such as if my adepts (magic folk) use too much power, they get physically tired.  Rules such as without their talisman, they are a lot weaker.  Some spells take a lot of what I call "meta" such as healing yourself (they often simply fall asleep after) and some don't take so much.   And probably the best rule was that you can't make offensive spells when you have a protection spell up.  And you can't move, either.
So, you could say, I didn't choose Urban Fantasy, Urban Fantasy chose me.  Why did it choose me?  I have no idea. The first thing I ever wrote in what has become the "Adepts Universe" (where some people, called "adepts" can manipulate people and nature through spells) started out as a science fiction story.  Sometimes when I'm bored I just start writing a story not with any idea of it going someplace.  So I was writing this story set in the near future about a man on the run from  . . . something (I hadn't determined that yet).  I was setting up the scene (a motel room just south of the "Seattle-Portland megalopolis") when for some reason I typed: "I put alarm spells on the door and window and put the gun on the nightstand."  I have no idea why.  The scene continued:
It could have been a few minutes or it could have been hours later when the door alarm woke me.  In my mind I saw the door fly open and two armed men rushed in.  Warriors, I thought, that's not very imaginative.  A bright light, part of the spell, slapped them in the face letting me clearly see their weapons, sawed-off shotguns, and as an added benefit prevented them from seeing me.
But writing that story gave me some history, some background, vocabulary, and some rules (do NOT let another adept learn your real name!).  I wrote one of the favorite things I've ever written and you, dear reader, are going to be the first to get to read it:
The window alarm went off inside my cranium.  Damn, the warriors had been a diversion.  A roc, wingspan of at least six feet, crashed through the glass and ripped through the fabric of the curtain.  It had large eyes designed for seeing in the dark and long, obsidian-like talons.
I had one bit of powerful meta I had been saving for just such emergencies.  I had to let go of the gun with my right hand, leaving it in my left hand, and pointed at the great bird.  Fire jumped from my fingertip, across the unused bed, to the creature, slamming it into the wall and igniting its feathers.  The force of the spell knocked me into my bed and radiant heat from the arc of flame burned my hand.  I swept my finger across the room to the warriors, leaving a line of fire of the wall.  One man was beating a hasty retreat and I got him in the back.  His clothes ignited then his skin.  He screamed once before the flames entered his lungs and fatally silenced him.  The other warrior stood still, perhaps in fright, and passively went up in flames.  Both squirmed on the floor a sickeningly long time.
As it burned, the roc jumped around the room spasmodically, almost falling back out the window, and flailed its wings filling the air with flying black feathers.  It smashed into the TV and the LCD screen shattered.  One of the room's walls was on fire, the roc was ripping up the carpet with its talons, and the dying warriors were spreading the fire to the floor.
Alarms sounded and the fire sprinkler began spraying cold water like some indoor cloud burst over the room, furniture, bed, the broken TV producing sparks and smoke and immediately soaking all my clothes.  I jerked back the slide on the gun and emptied the magazine into the roc.  As each hollow-point mushroomed in its body it screeched like fingernails on a chalkboard.  Its black blood spattered the walls only to be washed down to the wet rug to lie with the ejected shell casings.  I heard the great bird's breath rattle out for the last time.
(I wrote this years before LCD TV screens.)  Yes, I'm serious, before now, no one has ever read that.  It's been sitting on my hard drive (or actually, a few different hard drives) for something like 15 years.  (Rocs show up in Hammer of Thor renamed ruhkhk.)  Why urban fantasy?  Because it lets me write scenes like what you just read.

Interview with Kylie Scott  

Where do you live ? 

I live in South East Queensland with my two children and one long-suffering husband. We have a noisy cat named Puffin and a Schnauzer named Astrid. Astrid believes beauty beats brains every single time. She also thinks no one knows that she eats all the cat’s biscuits and climbs onto the lounge to sleep after everyone’s gone to bed. Sadly for her she’s a very noisy eater.

What inspired you to write this book?  

I’ve always loved ‘B’ Grade horror, especially George A Romero with his brilliant Zombie Apocalypse films. Also, ‘The Stand’ by Stephen King is one of my favourite books. I loved the idea of the empty world with everything just lying around, waiting to be picked up again. Of people having to learn to live without all the mod cons. Team that with my lust for tales of romance and here we are.

·       Why did you choose to write Erotica?

I feel a little cheated if the relationship ends at the bedroom door. Sex is a part of life and it’s a big tell in a lot of ways as to how a couple does or doesn’t work. I believe it’s very much a part of a love story and deserves its place on the page.

·       Did any book, character or person inspire you to write this story, aka do you have a muse?

I guess all the great action heroines over the years inspired me. Characters like Sarah Connor from Terminator and Ripley from Aliens. You can’t help but admire women who were willing to stand up and deal as best they could with whatever was thrown at them. Women who were afraid but didn’t let that fear rule them. They just got on with the job to hand and I love that.

·  Do you do your own covers if not who does them and if so .. wow

My publisher Momentum is responsible for the saucy cover. It’s great isn’t it? I just might need it poster size on my office wall for future inspiration. Those hands. Yum. And the banner on my website is by my mate Jay from this he(ART) of mine.

<!-What are the most important elements of good writing? According to you what tools must you have?

You have to develop a thick skin. Feedback is hard to take but it’s invaluable if you want to develop as a writer. Apart from that, it’s like Stephen King said, ‘Read a lot, Write a lot’. Join a writers group, find some good critique partners, try and try and try. I think if it’s your passion, story-telling is something you can spend a life-time learning how to do well.

Have any books or authors influenced what you write?

Stephen King as mentioned. I think Lauren Dane and Lorelei James do ménage romance the best. There are so many great Romance Writers. Roni Loren and Cari Silverwood are some of my latest favourites. And no one does lush and lovely Deep Point of View quite like the wonderful Anna Campbell.

·      What is your writing process do you follow a routine?

I’m trying to learn how to be a plotter. I’ve started setting out with a brief scene map so I don’t veer off into the wilds and get hopelessly lost 50,000 useless words down the track. In the map I just do a few sentences to say what happens. What changes. Who is the point of view. Brief bits like that to guide the way and keep me out of the wilderness.

       Did you or have your learnt anything writing your book?

Oh heaps... I actually worked with a writing mentor on Flesh. Her name is Louise Cusack and she would give me feedback and advice on the manuscript as it progressed. She really helped me hone my craft and kick it in the pants up to the next level. She encouraged me to stick with it when things got tricky. Flesh was a huge learning curve for me with regards to pretty much everything. Working with Louise really pushed me forward when I was floundering. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

      What do you find the hardest part about writing, do you ever suffer writers block?

You know what really gets me? Other ideas. They turn up all shiny and sparkly and they look so much easier and so much more fun than the hard work you’re doing on that tired old manuscript you’ve had sitting around since dinosaurs walked the earth. Not getting distracted by fresh story ideas is the issue for me.

·      Any advice to future writers?

Join Romance Writers of Australia or America or a writing group wherever you are. Don’t give up. And don’t let other people tell you your story or that the very idea of writing is rubbish. Smile and wave. Move on. Keep working at it.

<How long have you been writing for and what do you have planned for future works?

I’ve been writing seriously for six years now. I’m working on the follow up to Flesh and I have a short story set in that same world being released 1st of November. There’s also a Sci-Fi Erotic Romance I’m polishing up for submission.

·      If you could have dinner with anyone – dead or alive who would it be and why?

Richard Armitage--and my husband isn’t invited. Enough said?

·       <!--[endif]-->Any favourite songs you listened to while writing? 

Oh, wow. I have a list. Would you like to see the list? Hang on.
From the Sea – Eskimo Joe
Heart’s a Mess – Gotye
Breathe Me – Sia
Thump – Bertie Blackman
Fool for You – John Butler Trio
Dark Storm – The Jezabels
Where they Wander – HoororPops
Monsters – Something for Kate
The Cutter – Howling Rabbits
Basically stuff by those bands on repeat for hours on end.
 
·       What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

There a couple of TV shows I’m addicted to like True Blood and Game of Thrones. I play a bit of acoustic guitar. I basically just hang out with my husband and kids. And the Schnauzer.

The Angel by Tiffany Reisz book review

No safe word can protect the heartInfamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren—whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin—is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora's lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury.

Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion. Young, inexperienced and angelically beautiful, Michael has become Nora's protégé, and this summer with Griffin is going to be his training, where the hazing never ends.

But while her flesh is willing, Nora's mind is wandering. To thoughts of Søren, her master, under investigation by a journalist with an ax to grind. And to another man from Nora's past, whose hold on her is less bruising, but whose secrets are no less painful. It's a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts.










My review

Fetishes…they’re the pet you feed or the beast that eats you.”

We’ll feed your beast until it’s tamed.”-Nora Sutherlin

Sigh - what an ending, WHAT A BOOK!!


I certainly can’t wait for book three. Tiffany certainly has us on the edge of our seat through this read. So many emotions put forward within this story. It will tug at your heart strings – and have you cringing and eager all the same. You will wander why you are compelled to read on, despite the ongoing within the story. Tiffany does a wonderful job of pulling you into the pages until the last one has been turned.

The Angel is dark, sensual, alluring and slightly haunting but so well written, it will certainly enlighten you into a world that you never knew existed. It will have you bordering on more than just an emotional roller coaster ride whilst reading this story, it will take you into another world.

It will have you blissfully gushing one moment, and ohh and agggggghhh ing the next. Some parts will make you cringe whilst others will have your panties in a twist.

For those who are new to the world of BDSM – it will certainly come across as dark to you on many levels. But keep in mind it’s all consensual and this is the lifestyle that they choose to live.
Many people live this lifestyle and Tiffany has certainly done her homework here. (For all those who chat with Tiffany Reisz this will make sense) ;)

You will think to yourself whilst reading – Oh my – Can I read on: and then wander why? - This world that Tiffany has created lures you in. You will be unable to put it down, despite certain things that happen within the story. I know I read this in record breaking time.
Tiffany has not held back with The Angel – every boundary that can be pushed has been, plus more. We are shown a world – in more detail within this book, more kink – more loving and of course a different side to Soren. I have to say that after reading this book, I can see the love that he feels for Nora even though some may think its abuse; Tiffany does portray his love for her on their own level.

Soren is arrogant, and very intimidating yet also intriguing. I was drawn to him more so within this story, he holds so much power, yet uses to his advantage in everyday life as well as behind the scenes. He is caring and loyal – and a character I can honestly say I didn’t like much in book one. But in this book we see more to him. He knows what love is despite what we may think, and is a man that is more than honorable despite the fact that he is a Priest and doing the wrong thing?? Define wrong - ?

Do keep in mind that everything Nora does is for love – her choice and her boundaries to push. This is the lifestyle she chooses to live. The blood play the seven slices – was very squeamish for me, I cringed. Scowled - but I also found this quiet an intimate act between Soren and Nora. It meant something to them.

An act that you and I may find quiet distasteful, scary, gross and bla … Had its meaning behind it.


Nora is quirky as ever, with her witty comments and her sometimes dry sense of humor, made the read a little lighter and funny at times. We see several sides to Nora once again within this story as well as every character being multi-faceted. We are also introduced to new characters as well.

In this installment of Tiffany Reisz’s mind blowing erotica – we see Nora struggle with her undying love for Wesley, she thinks that she is over him, but as a reader I know she is certainly NOT … I have to say I missed Wesley in this story and also the humor and fun friendship between herself and her editor.

Nora is sent away to live with Griffin and Michael, while Soren is investigated by a journalist. By keeping them below the radar he hopes that the conflicted stories, sway and they can live their lives once again.

We see a different side to Griffin and Michael in this story – all the emotions are well portrayed and put forth giving the reader a lot more than we could ever have bargained for. ** sigh **
The ending – Oh my!!!!

I flicked the reader to see if there was more to come and noooooo… I had a grin like a Cheshire cat, and thought to myself... Oh my Wesley’s book is next... Ran over to Twitter and read all the comments to see how long I had to wait... Kingsley I am very eager to see where this leads to ….

I was eager to read The Angel but I am waiting with my breathe baited for the next book – even wandering in which direction Tiffany will take us... Contemplating and plotting – but I’m sure Tiffany will leave us hanging off the cliff with the next installment as well.


The Angel is Sinfully sexy – erotic, as hot as kryptonite. Tiffany Reisz has written a fan friggin tastic story , that Is not only well written but filled with witty dialogue , passion, humor and characters that will pull you into the pages.

It is sensual, with many heartwarming scenes and many other scenes that I’m sure you as a reader will question your sanity and thoughts lol - as to why you enjoyed it so much, it will open your mind, and also question your beliefs but also have you curious none the less. 



A big thank you to Harlequin Australia for the paperback copy for review and also Little Bird Publishing for the e copy supplied for my honest opinion and thoughts.

She loves getting lost in the worlds and characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher or wash socks when she’s doing so. Luckily, her four brilliant children and hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive.

Wicked Allure - Leslie Ferdinand Review Blitz













Wicked Allure 




What Does A Man Say to the Woman He Betrayed But Never Stopped Loving?
Three years ago, Zachary Steele refused to entertain thoughts of permanency with any woman. A hedonist at heart, he didn’t want to corrupt the much younger, Madigan DeLeon, by continuing his affair with her. With the hidden scars of his past, he didn’t believe in happily-ever-after. By the time he realized how much Madigan meant to him, he’d driven her away. Then, one night, after being clean for a number of years, Zach briefly falls off the bandwagon. He believes his lovemaking to Madi is a drug-induced hallucination. The resulting consequences tell another story.

What Does A Woman Do When the Only Man She’s Ever Loved Hurt Her So Deeply She Feared She’d Never Recover?

Three years after her affair with Zach so abruptly ended, celebutante, Madigan DeLeon, is thrust back into Zach’s life by her mother’s machinations. Brought home under the false pretenses of repairing her damaged relationship with her mother, Madi instead finds herself running a private sex club called Wicked Allure. Forced to confront her anger at his betrayal and grief at the loss of what might’ve been, Madi faces the realization that she’s never stopped loving Zach.
Can Two Broken Hearts Set Aside Anger and Betrayal to Find True Love Once and For All?
Searching the deepest recesses of their hearts, in a place where pride and pain has no room, Madi and Zach must decide if their bond is strong enough to take a second chance at love. Or if resuming their sexual relationship is an irresistible wicked allure and the ghosts of their former relationship will finally, and forever, sever all ties between them.







** My thoughts ** 
Wicked Allure is an erotic romance about forgiveness , moving on and second chances.  The things the rich do to stay in the limelight even if the information portrays the rich as flawed and scandalous. A bit of publicity can get them everywhere !
Deceit, betrayal and lies and undying love.
I really enjoyed this story; it’s filled with smoking hot sex scenes, characters rich in character, and a love that defies all obstacles.  Even the ones thrown in the way to stop the love from moving on.
Zac and Madi shared a past – a past that Zac wasn’t all willing to move forward with, after a turn of events, Madi flees and leaves Zac behind and tries to move on..
Three years later her mother draws Madi back, not knowing her mother is up to her old tricks again convinces and   leaves Madi in charge of creating a ** F>>K club**. Zac only agrees on the deal to keep an eye on Madi and hopefully woo her back. Zac knows that he doesn’t deserve Madi after everything -  but he wants to show her that the love they have is made of second chances. Zac works for Madi's mother - her motives Madi is unsure about but in time this all comes out in the wash.
SPOLIER ALERT ..

After a hot dream – Zac is drawn to Madi again and vice versa they both think they have had dreams, but after a night of hot passion and love rekindled they both cant stop thinking about each other.

The lovin scenes are smoking hot – the sex they share is smouldering but is there more to the relationship then just hot sex ?  Madi want more – but is Zac willing to give all that it takes to keep the woman he loves including that happily ever after ??

Wicked allure is filled with lots of drama, the drug scenes are very minimal and by no means made me feel like the book was related around this issue.  A few words thrown in here and there - by all means I didn't find offensive but for those who don't like the F... word thrown in for that added extra than the language you may not like.  Me I personally didn't mind, its erotic and the context in which its used blends in within the story.
Being an erotic romance expect lots of steamy bedroom scenes maybe even an office scene thrown in as well. ** waggles eyebrows.**

I enjoyed the characters – Zacs brother was certainly a hotty – he was witty and funny and held a torch for Madi – If it was me I tell you the temptation would be just too great... ** snickers **
Zac was sinfully sexy - there's nothing quiet as sexy as a dominant man who knows what he wants !! He was certainly a love machine and had the sex appeal any reader will enjoy in a steamy erotic romance. Zac came across forward , romantic and smexy as ! Yes smart and sexy in one ** grins ** ohh and rich !!! geesh what a combination !!


This story puts forth and focus's also around the rich and popular. The things the rich do to stay in the limelight even if it may give the public false information. What rich money can buy, and who you can pay to do your dirty work and what money can certainly do for you to benefit.. Even to get revenge ?

The only thing I’d like to have seen more of – would be how the sexy rooms at the new establishment came about – maybe a little tango here and there. We were given general descriptions, but deep down I’d hoped to have seen a little more action. ** Wicked I know **.

Wicked Allure will certainly allure you in, have you reading briskly, your breathe baited and your toes curling. Heartfelt moments where present. 

A  mother whom I could’ve bitched slapped; she was one person I didn’t like what so ever. Her motives self-centred and selfish...

Madi was an engrossing character, filled with love and forgiveness and a wonderfully scripted. I enjoyed the ending but would love to have seen a little more into that to.

 ** I know I want so much ** but romance is my all-time favourite genre!

 The sexy bits just added extra ;)

Be wicked and grab your copy today – its filled with lots of wicked moments, where I'm sure you will be sheepishly grinning and it will  have your pulse a racin...
