About the Book

Pixelated

by L.S. Murphy

Release Date: 06/30/15 | Publisher: Bloomsbury Spark

Senior Year. 

Middle of nowhere. 

What’s the new girl to do?

For Piper Marks, the answer is simple. She’s determined to have her photography rock the cover of National Geographic someday, and moving to Clarkton, Iowa for her last year of high school is not going to stop her. Even if her usual subjects have changed from bright lights and skyscrapers to fields, cows…and more fields. 

But when photographer at the local paper quits in a huff, she steps into his spot. Her new job keeps Piper busy capturing tackles, and zooming in on first downs and end zone dances, not to mention putting her directly in the path of varsity football star Les Williams IV. Her new friends warn her off, but she can’t resist the pull she feels toward this mysterious country boy. But this small town is keeping a secret, and it’s one that could destroy any chance they have to be together. 

It’s up to Piper to decide what to do with the distorted truth. Can she risk exposing her heart? It might be worth it, ’cause Les is about to change her world from black and white to fully saturated color.

Fresh off a break-up with her boyfriend, Kadie’s glad to be home from college for Thanksgiving. All she needs is a rebound guy, a box of chocolates, and some girl time with her best friend, Salome.

Feeling sorry for herself, Kadie ends up at Club Blade, a place filled with pumping music, dangerous guys, and promises of a good time. However, when midnight strikes, Kadie’s fun turns into a nightmare as she’s ripped from the human world into Faerie by a vengeful Winter Prince named Etienne.

Salome thought the winter curse was behind her. But winter has left its mark. Not just on her, but on the whole summer court. The Kingdom of Summer is falling apart, and Nevin is hanging onto his throne by a thread. With war on his doorstep, he has no choice but to send Gareth into enemy territory, which means Salome will be left alone—vulnerable in a world she doesn’t understand. A place where beauty is deadly and humans are pawns in the macabre games the Fae play. Both Kadie and Salome will have to call on all their strength to survive in a world where humans aren’t meant to be. With death and enemies all around them, it’ll be a miracle if they can survive.

About the Book

The Foxglove Killings

by Tara Kelly

Release Date: 09/01/15 | Publisher: Entangled Teen

Gramps always said that when the crickets were quiet, something bad was coming. And the crickets have been as silent as the dead. It started with the murdered deer in the playground with the unmistakable purple of a foxglove in its mouth. But in the dying boondock town of Emerald Cove, life goes on.

I work at Gramps’s diner, and the cakes?the entitled rich kids who vacation here?make our lives hell. My best friend, Alex Pace, is the one person who gets me. Only Alex has changed. He’s almost like a stranger now. I can’t figure it out…or why I’m having distinctly more-than-friend feelings for him. Ones I shouldn’t be having.

Then one of the cakes disappears. 

When she turns up murdered, a foxglove in her mouth, a rumor goes around that Alex was the last person seen with her—and everyone but me believes it. Well, everyone except my worst enemy, Jenika Shaw. When Alex goes missing, it’s up to us to prove his innocence and uncover the true killer. But the truth will shatter everything I’ve ever known about myself—and Alex.

Modern Monsters by Kelley York / @elixing / @entangledteen

Today, I’m featuring a cover reveal for Modern Monsters by Kelley York! First, here’s a little bit about the book.

About the Book

Modern Monsters

by Kelley York

Release Date: 06/02/15 | Publisher: Entangled Teen

Vic Howard never wanted to go to the party. He’s the Invisible Guy at school, a special kind of hell for quiet, nice guys. But because his best friend is as popular as Vic is ignored, he went…

And wished he hadn’t.

Because something happened to a girl that night. Something terrible, unimaginable, and Callie Wheeler’s life will never be the same. Plus, now Callie has told the police that Vic did it. Suddenly, Invisible Vic is painfully visible, on trial both literally, with the police, and figuratively, with the angry and judgmental kids at school. As the whispers and violence escalate, he becomes determined to clear his name, even if it means an uneasy alliance with Callie’s best friend, the beautiful but aloof Autumn Dixon.

But as Autumn and Vic slowly peel back the layers of what happened that night, they realize that while the truth can set him free, it can also shatter everything he thought he knew about his life…

About the Author

“I like unicorns and cats and games…and stuff…” – quality author quote by Kelley

kelley yorkKelley York was born in central California, where she still resides with her lovely wife, step-daughter, and way too many cats, while fantasizing about moving to England or Ireland. (Or, really, anyplace secluded.) She has a fascination with bells and animals and Disney. Her life goal is to find a real unicorn. Or to at least write about them. She occupies her spare time with video gamesdesigning covers, playing on Tumblr, and watching anime.

Kelley is a sucker for dark fiction. She loves writing twisted characters, tragic happenings, and bittersweet endings that leave you wondering and crying. She strives to make character development take center stage in her books because the bounds of a person’s character and the workings of their mind are limitless.

Nicky Peacock Visits For An Interview! / @nickyp_author

So I’d like to give a huge shout of thanks to author Nicky Peacock for joining me for today’s interview. Welcome Nicky!

The Interview

[NP]: Thank you for having me on your blog Stephanie!

[SK]: You are so welcome! I recently featured you on my blog for your release Bad Blood. Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? 
[NP]: I always try to include themes in my work – there are quite a few in the Battle of the Undead series, but probably the most important to me is – working toward the greater good. We all have petty issues with certain people in our lives, but the bigger picture should mean more – and this is the main plot device for Bad Blood. Our protagonist, Britannia is having to work with her sworn enemy, always unsure as to how long the fragile peace will hold and how much control she has over her own temper.

[SK]: Cool. Are your experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? 
[NP]: I always include aspects of reality in everything I write – it can make even the most unrealistic worlds and characters feel a little more real. I often attribute one of my own traits to my characters – Brit definitely has my dry sense of humour, she’s also got a stubborn streak 10 miles wide (but mine is only nine miles wide!)

[SK]: Ha! Awesome. She sounds like a great character. What books have most influenced your life most? 
[NP]: Probably far too many to list! I loved the early work of Poppy Z Brite growing up and read all of Anne Rice’s books. Angela Carter’s work is amazing, I have a particular love for her Bloody Chamber, it came into my life at just the right time to nurture my dark imagination. I’m always discovering new authors, especially nowadays; it seems thanks to eBooks we’re living in a golden age where new voices are more likely to be heard.

[SK]: If you had could pick anyone, which writer would you consider a mentor? Why?
[NP]: Hmmm, I never really had a mentor. I kind of wished I had though. I was such a ravenous reader growing up, I have a massive list of writers that I loved and whose books I savoured. If I could have chosen anyone, it would have probably been Kelley Armstrong, as she has been the most consistent in her work through the years.

[SK]: What’s the most enjoyable book you’ve read this year? Why?
[NP]: Hands down, it would be the ‘Asylum of Fairytale Creatures’ by Sebastian Gregory. An amazingly dark book which is both funny and disturbing. I’d recommend it to anyone. Just don’t read it before you go to sleep!

[SK]: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
[NP]: Sebastian Gregory is pretty new (as authors go) it seems that the road to getting a book out is always a few years in the making, so by the time it hits shelves the author has been around fora  while. I have just started reading the Molly Harper books and have recently found Jeffe Kennedy, Jenn Bennett and Annie Nicholas – all of which I’d have on my top ten authors I’ve read this year.

[SK]: Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
[NP]: It was always there. I think perhaps it started in the womb! My mum had always wanted to write, but life and kids kind of got in her way. She’s always been my most ardent supporter and, when I need it, my toughest critique!

[SK]: What were the challenges (research, literary, psychological, and logistical) in bringing your latest story to life?
[NP]: Research was limited in the first book, but I’m having to delve a little deeper into history in the next one, Bad timing. I think my biggest hurdle, and one I perhaps share with a lot of writers who are still working full time in other industries, is time. It’s a hard slog to include writing and editing and then promotion into a ‘normal’ schedule, yet still have some semblance of a life too. I had to make certain sacrifices to have the time to breath life into the characters and tell their stories.

[SK]: What’s on your main character’s playlist?
[NP]: I listen to music whilst writing so I have a massive playlist for each book I write! But if boiling it down to just Britannia it would be:

  • Billy Idol – Rebel Yell
  • Sex Pistols – God Save the Queen
  • Young Guns – Bones
  • Linkin Park – A Light That Never Comes
  • Florence and The Machine – Never let me go
  • Fluke – Atom Bomb
  • The Silent Comedy – Bartholomew
  • Rock Star – NERD
  • Missy Higgins – Where I stood

[SK]: Are you like any of the characters in your stories? How?
[NP]: I do include characteristics of myself, as I think most authors do (either deliberately or subconsciously) I’m not sure I’d be much good in a zombie apocalypse – I’m terrible at making quick decisions and I would have killed Nicholas on the spot!

[SK]: What’s your secret addiction?
[NP]: I’m kind of a shop-a-holic! And I also have a problem with chocolate – especially in pudding form.

[SK]: Favorite car?
NP]: My own – I have a silver Peugeot 107. I don’t believe in flash cars; In my opinion they use too much gas and are more for status and ego enhancing than anything else. My little 107 gets me where I want to be, all be it a little slower than a Jag!

[SK]: Do you have any pets?
[NP]: Not at the moment. I did have a dog, Bob but he died a few years ago. I haven’t had the heart to replace him, and to be honest I am not in a position to properly look after an animal where I live now.

[SK]: Do you write in total silence or with music or some other distraction?
[NP]: I tend to write with music, but am also a bit of a hobo writer. I write in cafes and restaurants as well as at home, so have no real ritual to speak of, save for the lack of one.

Awesome! Thanks so much to Nicky for joining me. Read on to learn more about Bad Blood.

The Book

bad-blood2-e1412323065428

“I am Britannia. I am your protector. I will fend off the hungry hordes of undead hands that reach toward you. I am your steadfast defender. I will stand between you and the zombie masses as they try to taste your flesh. I am strong, unyielding, and dedicated to your survival. All I ask from you… is your blood.”

A five-hundred-year-old bloody game of vengeance will need to be put on hold if vampires are to survive the zombie uprising. Britannia and Nicholas, bitter enemies and the only two surviving vampires left in London, have to work together to save un-infected humans and deliver them safely to a vampire stronghold in the Scottish Highlands. Unable to drink the zombie ‘bad blood’, the remaining vampires need the humans to stay alive. But will the vampires tell the survivors who they are and what they want from them? Will Britannia be able to hold back her vengeance for the greater good? Is survivor Josh the reincarnation of Britannia’s murdered true love? And can she bring herself to deliver him to the ‘safe’ hold? Survival instincts run deep, but bad blood can run deeper.

The Authoruse7

I guess I’ve always been a storyteller, not in a ‘liar liar pants on fire’ kind of way, although I do work in advertising! When I was little, kids would crowd around me in the playground and I’d tell them tales of blood soaked horror filled with vampires, werewolves, ghosts and more. Yes, most would consider me a disturbed child, but my playmates couldn’t help themselves, they’d huddle around me every break time like an ancient tribe feeding off the fear; and that’s how I learned that horror stories hold a certain power, no matter what some might say, everyone is addicted to a good scare, especially if it is somewhat rooted safely in unrealistic beings… or are they unrealistic?

Writing was really a natural progression. Right now I’m obsessed with writing: a YA Urban Fantasy novel, a Paranormal Romance novella series, and several short horror stories! So I’m currently living in a functional fiction coma – and loving it!

I’ve so far been published in 5 countries: USA, UK, Australia, Ireland and Canada and had short stories included in 40 anthologies with over 17 publishers.

Excerpt

Michael leaned against the building’s stucco wall and rested his hands on my hips. Light from the store cast a warm gleam in his crystal blue eyes. He leaned in, and the draw to be close to him was a gravitational force. “Hello,” he said.

“Hello.” I had to get a grip. It’d been so long since we’d talked, I tried to focus on all the things I wanted to tell him. “We went to see Fatima.” His fingers caressed the sides of my waist, sending happy tingles through me. “You know, in her store…” To my own ears, my voice sounded raspy. I trembled.

“Cold?” He drew me closer, his mouth crooking into a grin.

Lost in him, I forgot all about Fatima. “You know damn well that’s not it.” I twined my arms around his back and touched the spot between his shoulder blades where his wings connected. Its warmth thawed my fingers.

He leaned in and brushed his lips along my jaw line. “Thought that was just me,” he whispered, and his breath tickled my neck. “I’ve wanted to do this for three days.”

Our lips met, and I melted into him, not caring that we were on the sidewalk, outside a deli with families shopping inside. Nor did I care that, being an angel, he had to follow very strict rules about contact with humans—especially contact of the relationship variety. Angels had the ability to enthrall humans with their touch, something Michael had to constantly keep in check. But I didn’t have to be enthralled to want to kiss him. That was my own doing. All that mattered right now was that he was here. With me.

He pulled me closer and the buzz of his energy filled me heart and soul, blocking out the rest of the world. My hands sought warmth under his leather jacket and found bare skin. I could feel the shiver from my touch surge through him. His mouth pressing more firmly against mine, he brushed a hand along my cheek and tangled it in my hair.

A dreamlike blur of light and color filled my thoughts. But then the image shifted to blood. His.

Book One

Reflection-Pond-ebook-1-Van

Sometimes you find home, sometimes it comes looking for you.

Callie knows a lot more about pain than she does about family. She’s never belonged, at least, not until she falls through a portal into her true home. The beautiful faerie city of Eirensae doesn’t come free. Callie must find her amulet and bind herself to the city, and most importantly, avoid the Fallen fae who seek her life. Seems like a small price to pay for the family she’s always wanted.

Then she meets cynical and gorgeous Rowan, who reads the darkness of her past in her eyes. He becomes Callie’s part-time protector and full-time pain in the ass. He has secrets of his own for Callie to unravel. What they don’t know is that the future of Eirensae lies with them, and the once peaceful city is about to become a battleground for power.

As fate would have it, a super soldier and two kids with abilities that could save the country, and maybe earth, are going to be hard to separate.

The world is fragmented and looking for a hero. Some heroes come in rough packaging.

Private Internship

An Art of Love novel by Kitsy Clare

New adult romance, book 2

Sugar’s not so sweet and secrets can be deadly … especially with matters of the heart

Sienna’s bestie, Harper warned her not to intern for famous bad boy artist, Casper Mason. After all, he just fired Harper who helped Sienna get the interview. But the moment Sienna sees Casper—or Caz—sweaty and practically shirtless and swinging from chains while he works on his sculpture, she’s hooked. He’s the richest, hottest artist in New York, and he lives in the fabulous Williamsburg Sugar Factory. But he’s also an incorrigible game-player, who seems to relish testing Sienna’s loyalty with a string of unsettling tests.

She knows she should get away fast. But by the time Sienna sneaks into his locked storage room and begins to unearth his dark and terrifying secret, she’s fallen way too hard for the handsome, charismatic Caz.

Cover designed by Renu Sharma

After speaking to the other angels on the team, I hang up my cell and sigh. No one’s heard from Aaden in months. This bothers me not only as the leader but as his girl–well if I was his girl–which I’m not. ?Great. Now on top of being grounded, I’m sitting here acting girly and needy. Argh!!!

Screw this! I start to head downstairs to plead my case to my parents again, when something out the window catches my eye. I lean in closer to get a good look. What I see astounds me: soundlessly and without hesitation, the humans line up and jump off the roof one at a time…

The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant / @DrewHayesNovels / @REUTSpub

Hello everyone! Welcome to a fun cover reveal for The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant! Read on to learn more about this upcoming release.

About the Book

Some people are born boring. Some live boring. Some even die boring. Fred managed to do all three, and when he woke up as a vampire, he did so as a boring one. Timid, socially awkward, and plagued by self-esteem issues, Fred has never been the adventurous sort.

One fateful night – different from the night he died, which was more inconvenient than fateful – Fred reconnects with an old friend at his high school reunion. This rekindled relationship sets off a chain of events thrusting him right into the chaos that is the parahuman world, a world with chipper zombies, truck driver wereponies, maniacal necromancers, ancient dragons, and now one undead accountant trying his best to “survive.” Because even after it’s over, life can still be a downright bloody mess.

About the Author

Drew Hayes Author PhotoDrew Hayes is an aspiring author from Texas who has written several books and found the gumption to publish a few (so far). He graduated from Texas Tech with a B.A. in English, because evidently he’s not familiar with what the term “employable” means. Drew has been called one of the most profound, prolific, and talented authors of his generation, but a table full of drunks will say almost anything when offered a round of free shots. Drew feels kind of like a D-bag writing about himself in the third person like this. He does appreciate that you’re still reading, though.

Drew would like to sit down and have a beer with you. Or a cocktail. He’s not here to judge your preferences. Drew is terrible at being serious, and has no real idea what a snippet biography is meant to convey anyway. Drew thinks you are awesome just the way you are. That part, he meant. Drew is off to go high-five random people, because who doesn’t love a good high-five? No one, that’s who.
