ONE LINER:
An unusual medical treatment leads Seth into a heroic role in a mystical life based on his father's bedtime stories of the oceanic Nila race.

SYNOPSIS:
Nila-Water, the first in a series, emerges as a blend of the parallel realities that Seth lives in. Developing a debilitating illness with an excruciating skin condition, he has lived a life of isolation. He escapes to the bedtime stories told by his father, of a beneficent race of Nila, who live on earth and in the oceans. Suffering also the loss of his father, who abruptly disappears from his life, he becomes attracted to his beautiful, tantalizing caretaker, Kate, who shares the house entrusted to him by his father. They mutually agree he should undergo four risky treatments recommended by his doctor, Eshe, to curb his ailing condition.

The questionable intentions of Seth’s powerful father for humans and for Nila are revealed during the course of treatments. Are Seth’s real-life experiences during the treatments actually his new life in the ocean, or a result of the drug being administered?


GUEST POST:
The Nila story was created out of my love for the ocean and my unending questions of why I exist, and what is the purpose of life.
After a winter storm, my wife and I walked the Coronado Island beach. The summer accumulation of sand had been stripped away by the aggressive waves and the sand dollars with it. Left behind was an exposed pile of rocks, which required work to traverse. Scattered about on these jagged stones were large pink and opalescent spiral shells. Surprisingly, many of them were only cracked and chipped, and the seagulls had yet to discover the awaiting treasure. Life still stirred within each intact shell, their flesh slightly exposed. As I sat rubbing a battered shell with my thumb and gazing out over the rough, gray water, I pondered the meaning of life and how it might be to live in the ocean. Playing with conjured up images, and adding a few of my own potent life experiences, Nila entered my life.
            A storyline and characters began to emerge over the next month while I resisted the urge to write. For I knew it would be an all encompassing project. My wife awoke me from a potent dream one fateful night, and I knew it was time. Once the words began to flow, the characters began to take on a life of their own. They guided me down paths I had not considered. Each character was a part of me, and each response to a question or situation came from my heart, which needed to be explored.
            Not needing a storyboard or feeling the need to bend the story toward my agenda, I wrote linearly. I’m still amazed how the words Sam spoke in the very first chapter organically came to fruition in the third book, Nila-Fire. Writing this story became a love affair—my wife had to remind me to eat or take a break. Often at the end of an emotional charged chapter I would step out into the real world. Sometimes not sure what was going to happen next, I would go for a walk under the forest canopy, barefoot on wet sand of a receding tide, or lie back in a chair under the shade of my favorite maple tree. On more than one occasion my walk was cut short from a flood of knowing, and I’d hurry back to my laptop. It was as if Sam was telling me his story and I only dictating.
            Like in real life, a person opens up organically … only seeing the vulnerabilities willing to be revealed. The Nila characters also unfolded in the same manner. Discovering a potential lover is the foreplay, which is how Sam, Seth, Eshe and the other characters unveiled themselves to me. Each contained one of my qualities: determined, timid, sassy, kind, and loving. Each situation called out a different me. The story provided a way for merging all my strengths and fragilities. An internal healing is what I gained.
            So, be careful of first impressions—even of yourself. Actions and behaviors may shift from appearing negatively charged to being positive when a higher perspective is achieved.

Kitty Honeycutt ~ 2nd interview and her novel ~ Where This World Ends


Where This World Ends
(A Collection of Short Stories From Masquerade de Minuit)
ISBN: 978-1985075122
ASIN: B079KT59BJ
GENRE: Supernatural Thriller


KEYWORDS: vampires, werewolf, shifters, monsters, sexual depravity, human nature, predators, fantasy, New Orleans, masquerade, the abyss, darkness, dark fantasy, supernatural, paranormal

ONE LINER:
Where this World ends there is another World inhabited by creatures that come from the imaginations of multiple people. Step inside their minds and meet them...

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Many of these short stories have the same characters in them, in different times and in different places. This is the first book of chronicles of role play that started on AOL years ago up until it’s demise.  All stories in this book take place in New Orleans in the 1800’s. The stories are collaborations by many people but mostly by my writing partner Amber Rendon and myself. We hope you’ll enjoy them, they are in their true form, some editing done for aesthetics as well as grammar and while I cannot promise they are in order to complete a whole story, I have done the best I could to put them together in such a way that each story is unique yet fits into the whole of a novel. There is something for everyone in this collection; vampires, werewolves, sex, seduction, blood and tears. This book is a celebration of a montage of writers from many places. We thank you for reading and wait in humble gratitude for your opinions and reviews.

Sincerely,
Kitty Honeycutt


BANTER – STUFF ABOUT YOU

Q: Tell me something you would like your readers (fans) to know about you.

A: I’ve been writing for years, it started on AOL when people use to get into chat rooms and hang out writing all night long. Since then I have honed my craft considerably. Writing with so many different people really helps you find your own style and flair. I have actually had people just come into a room and watch myself and my partner write and tell us that we should write books because they didn’t even want to enter their own character for the love of watching us write together. That is when you get a case of the feels. It use to make me cry, and I knew then that I had the ability to truly write as an author.

Q: If you could morph into any creature, what would it be?
A: A dragon!

If you don’t mind me asking, why?
A: I mean really, who wants to mess with a dragon? I know I wouldn’t!

Q: When you think of a garden, do you picture vegetables or flowers?
A: I’d have to say both. My daughter and I have been talking about doing both a vegetable garden and a flower garden. We both love plants and trees and since she is a vegetarian it makes the most sense to do both!


BOOKS – ABOUT THE CRAFT

Q: Which element of book writing is the most difficult for you?
A: Editing! I go over my own book so many times I get cross-eyed. I have an editor named Jennii that goes over my books and then I go over them again. I hate editing.

Q: What is your favorite part of writing?
A: My favorite part would have to be the creating. I love creating the characters and really getting into them when writing. I love to put in different dialects and inflections in their voices so the people reading it will get a real feel for the area they are from.

Q; Now your least favorite part?
A: The ending, that is always the worst. It’s hard for me to end a story without wanting to keep it going. I always feel like there could be more.

Q: Describe your favorite heroine? (This doesn’t have to be one of yours.)
A: My favorite heroine right now is Davina Honeycutt from the book Crazy Cat Lady, yes a character with my surname. The reason is because she is good but doesn’t realize she is being lured by darkness and she takes her own life to keep bad things from happening…. even though it doesn’t really work out too well. She tried though!

EXCEREPT~
OUT ON THE TOWN

There were some places that those of vampiric or Lycan descent should avoid, but Alistair had earned his eccentric reputation fair and square. When he contracted the most upscale local restaurant to host a large dinner party in his name, it was only because he felt the need to reach out to his peers and cousins. Those that retrieved their mail today would find a handwritten, hand delivered invitation to dinner and drinks courtesy of Avante House. Simply put on some fine attire and make your way to the Hearth Dining Hall, was the simple wording. Alistair had been there most of the day, playing supervisor to the staff, making sure his money brought in the finest wines and beers, as well as  the choicest cuts of beef, chicken and fish. The chef had been quite busy preparing everything from appetizers to the main courses, which only needed be ordered. The elder was dressed in his customary black dress slacks, black dress shoes, and a black button up dress shirt with pin striping. His long, blue black hair was pulled back in a loose bride. He was already working on his second or third red wine, so things should be entertaining.

 Trigve' received an invitation, to his surprised it contained the Avante seal.  The man was known to be much the recluse and Trigve' had likely only witnessed him out as many times as he could count on one hand.  Dressed in his best suit, pinstriped waistcoat, an over jacket of black and slacks of the same.  Gold pocket watch on a chain hooked to one pocket, cufflinks of the same tone.  His hair was combed back and contained in a leather thong, the appearance of a man that owned the Old Bank of the United States was complete.  Of course he'd obtain the company of both women of his house this night, one on each arm, Sekhmet Diago and Jaelienne  Torro.  It was high time they'd had a night out his last had been Preservation Hall and that had been at least a month prior.  The man had just found out he had a son recently, the smile upon his face seemed to be permanent.  Of course the murder that had taken place only days ago weighed heavily on his mind but as of yet the dire situation had not reached his home.  Upon entering the Hearth Dining Hall he began to peruse the area in search of his host and friend, Alistair Avante.

Lucy Felthouse ~ presents ~ Mia's Wedding (The Heiress's Harem Book Two)



Out Now
Mia’s Wedding (The Heiress’s Harem #2)
by Lucy Felthouse
(@cw1985) #reverseharem #whychoose

 Blurb:
Planning a wedding is stressful enough, and that’s without a harem of gorgeous men to deal with.

Mia Harrington has had a difficult time of it lately—her father’s illness and subsequent death, then finding out she must get married if she is to inherit what’s rightfully hers. Fortunately, she’s tough and resourceful, and has emerged relatively unscathed from this period, as well as finding herself a suitable husband.

However, things are far from simple. Mia might be planning to marry investment banker Elias Pym, but she’s also having a relationship with his best friend, Doctor Alex Cartwright, and is in love with her gardener, Thomas Walker. Add to that broken dates, flashy proposals, a sexy Asian tech billionaire, and a nosey housekeeper, and you’ve got a situation hectic enough to drive even the most capable person to distraction. Can Mia juggle her men, her job, and the wedding arrangements, or is her happily ever after over before it has even begun?

Mia’s Wedding is the second book in The Heiress’s Harem reverse harem romance series.

Excerpt:
Mia locked up and put the key in her bag, then took Elias’s arm. They walked down the steps and out into the chilly January night to the waiting black cab.

“I’m afraid,” Elias said, once they were settled into the back of the car, “Alex isn’t coming.”

“What do you mean, he’s not coming?” she squeaked.

Elias looked apologetic, but gave a one-shouldered shrug. “There was an emergency at the hospital—as their nearest surgeon, he got called in. Couldn’t very well say no, could he?”

Mia shook her head and sagged back into the seat, her heart sinking to her stomach. “No, of course not. I’m very sorry he won’t be joining us, but although we’re scintillating company, we don’t count as a life or death situation.”

He reached out and squeezed her hand, then kept hold of it. “No, we certainly do not. I hope, though, that I’ll be entertainment enough for you by myself this evening.”

She squeezed his hand back, then leaned over and kissed his cheek, pulling in the scent of his delicious cologne at the same time. “I’m sure you will. Besides, this was part of what you two meant when you were talking about being able to give a woman the attention she deserves between you, wasn’t it? Alex unfortunately can’t make it, but because I’m dating—or whatever the hell we’re calling this—both of you, it means I’m not left high and dry. I’m sure at some point you’ll be the one who has to cancel. These things happen.”

With a smile, Elias said, “They sure do. Though I don’t really get emergencies at work—and if I do, they’re all about which person gets to line their pockets the most, rather than saving lives. But enough of that!” he added brightly, clearly eager to change the sore subject of his chosen career. Though she still didn’t understand why he was so embarrassed about it. And if he hated it so much, why was he still doing it? She wasn’t going to broach that particular topic, though, not tonight. She already had one potentially hairy subject to discuss.

But then how could she, now? How could she talk about the situation with Thomas without Alex present? She stifled a sigh. Fuck it. Looks like it’s going to have to wait.

“So,” she said, “where are we going?”

“You’ll have to wait and see,” he replied with a smirk.

She jabbed him in the ribs. “Seriously?”

“Yes, seriously. Patience, woman! We’ll be there in…” he peered out of the window, presumably to check where they were, “in less than ten minutes, traffic permitting.”

“Hmph.” She folded her arms and pouted. “Guess I’ll just have to wait, then.”

“Don’t sulk.” Elias tapped the end of her nose. “We haven’t seen each other in a little while, so I want smiles and laughter, not pouting. Even though I know you’re faking it.”

She gasped. “I never fake it!”

“I should hope not,” he shot back, his grin turning wicked. “My future wife deserves nothing but the best, and that includes orgasms. Real ones.”

Her tummy flip-flopped. Bloody hell, she’d almost forgotten about that. She’d been so focussed on working up to telling Elias and Alex they weren’t the only two men to be sharing her that there hadn’t been much capacity left for thinking about her impending wedding. But then, technically speaking, she wasn’t engaged yet. They’d discussed it and informally agreed to it, but there’d been no proposal, no acceptance, no ring.

There was plenty of time left for all that, though. If she and Elias had to grab a couple of witnesses and go to a registry office at the last minute, it would still count—her father hadn’t specified a type of ceremony, thankfully. But that wasn’t how she wanted to do things, and she suspected Elias wouldn’t be too keen on that idea, either.

“Ooh, your future wife, am I?” she teased, figuring that since the topic of Thomas was off the table, she might as well put the topic of their engagement on the table, instead.

Elias frowned. “Of course you are. I know we haven’t sorted a ring yet, but we still know we’re engaged…”

She shrugged, hoping it appeared more nonchalant to him than she actually felt. “Well, not exactly. We never made it official, did we? More of a loose verbal agreement.”

Elias groaned and screwed up his nose. “When you put it like that, it sounds bloody awful. I know to all intents and purposes it’s a practical arrangement, but I want it to be much more than that, Mia.” He cupped her cheek and brushed his thumb over her skin. “I’ve missed you.”

Warmth bloomed where he touched her, and radiated across her entire face and down her neck. She smiled and placed her hand over his. “I want it to be more, too. And I’ve missed you, as well. It’s been a long month, hasn’t it?”

J.L. Beck & Stacey Lewis ~ present ~ The baby Mistake



Title: The Baby Mistake
Authors: J.L. Beck & Stacey Lewis
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Standalone In The Winston Brothers #2
Giveaway







There's two things you should know about me:

One: I don't make mistakes
Two: I'm never going to settle down with one woman

I'm the fun brother, the jokester, the one who's never serious...

At least, not until I lose the biggest influence in my life.

Now I'm spiraling out of control, so much so I spent the night after the funeral drowning my sorrows. First in the bottom of a bottle...then in the body of a blonde bombshell who looked at me like I could make all her carnal dreams come true.

Spoiler alert: I did.
I don't remember her name or what she looked like, but now she's consuming my every thought.

It doesn't help that my brother selected a brand new intern with a banging body and blonde hair that makes me think of her to be my assistant for the next six weeks.

I spend my days trying not to bend her over my desk and make her mine...

And my nights dreaming about the girl who got away.

Everything changes when the secret she's been hiding comes out...

...and I realize I made a huge mistake.

**This is book two in The Winston Brothers Series, however, it can be read as a standalone, separate from book one, The Baby Arrangement. Though, we do recommend you read that book first since The Baby Mistake does contain spoilers from The Baby Arrangement. It's baby making, alpha loving, Kindle fanning romance, so prepare yourself with a towel. HEA included.**

J.L. Beck and Stacey Lewis are two best selling romance authors. They share an equal love for writing, and reading, and are introverts at heart. They love alpha males, and romance that makes you swoon. When you read a book by them you're guranteed and HEA ending.

Karen Renee ~ presents ~ Unforeseen Riot



Title: Unforeseen Riot
Author: Karen Renee
Series: A Riot MC Novel #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense











Mallory Pierce, a thirty-one-year-old widow, has been hiding from life after losing her husband and son to a drunk driving accident a year and a half ago. Friends tried to get Mallory to get back into the swing of things; but it isn’t until she meets Riot MC biker, Cal Robertson, when Mallory begins to live again. The chemistry between Mallory and Cal is volatile from the beginning, and when Cal offers her a ride on his motorcycle, Mallory cannot refuse. Soon after meeting Cal, Mallory’s home is burglarized. Police attribute it to teenage gang activity, but Cal Robertson finds out about the home invasion and insists on helping Mallory put the pieces back together. Mallory agrees to a date with Cal, which goes awry when Cal must take Mallory to his club’s compound so he can fulfill his duty as the club’s Sergeant at Arms. Even though Mallory is physically attracted to Cal, she knows she doesn’t fit in with his biker lifestyle.

Mallory’s relationship with Cal has a rough start, but the two of them cannot stay away from one another. After an attempt by a rival MC to abduct Mallory she finds herself all but living with Cal. There are many things she doesn’t understand about his lifestyle and his world, but she understands she’s quickly developing feelings for this over-protective alpha male.

Cal “Callous” Robertson has been a patched member of the Riot MC for the past nineteen years, and the Sergeant-at-Arms for the last eight. He’s fascinated by the spunky brunette, Mallory Pierce, who is one of the only women to push his buttons. He doesn’t believe the police explanation of teenagers being behind the burglary, mainly because after eleven years in the foster care system he knows about being a troubled teen. He thinks Mallory’s mother-in-law is behind the break-in, but at such an early point in their relationship Cal keeps that to himself. When a member of a rival MC shows interest in Mallory, Cal can no longer deny his attraction to her. Cal is determined to protect Mallory, and get to know her better along the way. The more he finds out, the more he wants her in his life. Permanently. When Mallory is abducted from Bike Week right under Cal’s nose, he finds he cannot live without this spitfire woman in his life, and he’ll do whatever he has to in order to get her back.








Karen Renee has wanted to be a writer since she was eight years old, but it’s taken the last twenty years for her to amass enough courage and overall life experience to bring that dream to life. Some of those life experiences came from the wonderful world of advertising, banking, and local television media research. She is a proud wife and mother, and a Jacksonville native. When she’s not at the soccer field or cooking, you can find her at her local library, the grocery store, in her car jamming out to some tunes, or hibernating while she writes and/or reads books.

TITLE: Crazy Cat Lady
RELEASE DATE: February 23, 2018
AUTHOR: Kitty 'de Chatfou
PAGE COUNT: 72
ISBN: 978-1984927071
IMPRINT: Dark Serpent
CATEGORIES: Horror/Occult

ONE LINER:
A horrifying look into what happens when nature is misunderstood and an old crone that harmed no one is now out for revenge.


SYNOPSIS:
In 1962 they thought she was dead, all they had to do was burn the old house down with her and those damnable cats in it and everything would be normal again. No more odd antics from the Crazy Cat Lady no more death. But what they didn't realize is there was much more to her relationship with her beloved cats than met the eye. Love, trust, and the bonds of a mother to her children all played a part to the insanity the town people thought raged within the crone's mind.

It's now 2018 and the stories have not ceased. Instead it seems the legend of the 'Crazy Cat Lady' have grown more horrifying than ever before prompting the local children to take a visit. Most have only come within a few feet of the old half burned house. They would stand, staring at the place, watching the creepy cats mill about the area, climbing along porch railings meowing plaintively. But three high school boys decide to take it a bit further one night which begins a horrifying look into what happens when nature is misunderstood and an old crone that harmed no one is now out for revenge.


BANTER – STUFF ABOUT YOU



Q: Dress up or dress down?

A: Down, I want to be comfortable. I hate feeling all itchy and scratchy. I don’t believe in dress clothes. Ew.

Q: Dine in or dine out?

A: Dine in, my daughter and myself love to eat out every now and then but to be honest we love eating at home more and even if we do get food from a restaurant we usually do take out so we can eat in the comfort of our own home.

Q: Coffee or Tea?
A: Tea! I have a cup every night before bed. The chamomile and lavendar help me sleep.

Q: How do you feel about exercise?
A: Ew! What’s that? I hate exercise but I feel I get plenty. I go out and walk every day but anything more detailed is not for me.

Q: Texting, love it or hate it?

A: Hate it! I’d much rather speak to someone in person or on the phone talking than texting. It’s just aggravating!

BOOKS – ABOUT THE CRAFT



Q: Which holiday celebrations do you like to incorporate into your stories and why?
A: Halloween! Because I do horror mostly. I haven’t done anything with any other holidays in it yet.

Q: Generally speaking, is your work based on real life experience? If it's not would you want it to be?
A: Not yet, but I do have a direction I’m going to take where I someday write my own life story, but my life is far from over yet so we’re going to wait until we’ve become completely settled because you never know what could happen.

Q: How long does it take you to create a novel?

A: One I’m writing now besides Crazy Cat Lady has taken seven years. I’m hoping to finish it next after this one.

Q: Do you like to read the genre that you write?

A: Yes! It always helps me get new ideas, not taking any from the book I’m reading of course, but it always helps me hone my craft because it gets my imagination churning.

EXCERPT:

Chapter Three
At first as the boys entered everything seemed pretty normal. For the house being as old as it was, the floor was quite sturdy and Tommy actually relaxed a little. He still didn’t want to go any further though so he spoke up. “Hey man, Jerry… uh, I think this is far enough, let’s take the picture and get the hell out of here.” Jerry turned around and shined his flashlight right in Tommy’s face. “Fine, wuss puss.” He reached to get his phone out of his pocket and beckoned Tommy over to stand beside him. Jerry held the phone up ‘selfie style’ and snapped the picture. Then they started to head back toward the front door. They had made it only mid way what must have been the living room at one time when they heard an awful den coming from the stairs and before either of them could say anything the cats were upon them.

They ranged in all sizes, some were small, some large and some medium but the claws and teeth were completely uncommon. They tore at the two boys ripping their jackets, t-shirts and pants to shreds. Skin came away in chunks and strips, the cats buried their maws into the large holes they made. Somehow Tommy had struggled to his feet and ran headlong for the door, several cats clinging to him. Jerry’s phone had long been discarded and lay in a puddle of blood on the floor. He’d stopped making noise long ago. There were no screams left as his tongue and part of his jaw had already been eaten away and the cats now had him on his back their claws working through his stomach to get at intestines and tender organs. His larynx had been ripped out and the last effort he made to scream came as a gurgle as he drowned in his own blood.

Tommy saw the car’s headlights and started to crawl toward them but just as soon as he thought Travis had seen him the car turned and sped away. He lay there now on his stomach the cats from the house joined by others outside. They jumped on his back and head, ripping and tearing, chewing flesh as they went. There was no doubt these cats had not been fed in a very long time, or so one would think, but they would be wrong. The last thing Tommy saw… or thought he saw was a hunched old woman standing at the door grinning at him. It seemed she was laughing silently or was it all just a dream? He would never know… would anyone? His vision began to fade; at least the pain was gone. His body had begun the process of shut down and he would make a very fine feast indeed. The cats began to move away and back into the house, some slinking off into the edge of the woods that bordered the house on the opposite side of the field… they moved oddly, their movements jerky and awkward, not like true cats at all. They’d be back… tomorrow night, and the next waiting for more to come.
