As an investigative journalist, Karina Ashworth’s job involves delving into New York’s black market of criminals and mischief where sin is almost too tempting to ignore.

When she crosses paths with a man whose smile is a little too cunning—and his power a little too vast—she learns very quickly that dancing with the devil is far more enjoyable than she had ever imagined.

But Uilleam Runehart is not at all what he seems, and as a notorious fixer with a thirst for power, he’ll do anything to obtain his title.

Ruthless.
Sinful.
Seductive.

How much would you pay to be a king?

Book Blitz: ‘Kingdom of Jior Fantasy Series’ by Wendy L. Anderson

KingdomofJoir

Hey Fantasy lovers! I have your next series right here! Check out the Kingdom of Jior series by Wendy L. Anderson. Below are a few snippets from each book to get you started and a chance to win the whole series in print!

Of Demon Kind34731822

Publication Date: November 14th, 2016

Publisher: Infinity Publishing

Prince Lorn of Jior is what’s left of an evil empire. King Kullorn was the epitome of evil. Together they led demon hordes reaping death and destruction. Kullorn is killed, leaving Lorn alone to wallow in the desolation of defeat. Years later, Lorn is accused of following in his father’s footsteps and kidnapping Princess Lililaira. Risking capture, imprisonment and death Lorn attempts to learn who is using his name to start another war. During a rescue of the Princess, Lorn is badly wounded and they must fight to remain together as he is healed by her, body, heart and soul.

Memories of how life used to be, circled through Lorn’s mind as he contemplated the events of five years ago. His father, King Kullorn of Jior, had raised him with one purpose in mind and that was to lead the Jiorian armies out of the Violent Mountains and conquer the entire island continent of Vedt. Kullorn had been an evil tyrant who had reigned over the once vast empire of Jior that was now only jagged mountains, left to the encroaching forest and wild animals.

Publication Date: April 17th, 2018

Publisher: Infinity Publishing

Five years have passed since Lorn liberated himself from Lan-Loe, his evil father’s Sorcerer. Legends were born from tales of the great battle between Lorn and a black-winged demon, of Lan-Loe’s death, and the defeat of demon-kind. Ever since that time, people have been flocking to Jior to make their homes there, and the Kingdom of Jior is revived. Lorn is crowned King of Jior, Lililaira is Queen and they rule peacefully side by side.

Now a new war threatens everything they have built and everyone they love. One hundred miles away from the City of Jior, the combined armies of Vedt march toward Jior intent on slaying everyone in the kingdom and taking revenge for Lorn’s past evil deeds. With the forces of the whole country coming against them, Lorn and Lililaira have little hope of defeating their enemies.

In the midst of impending war, strange dreams plague Lorn’s sleep at night. He feels that something is waiting, something he needs very badly, something is calling him!

When he answers the call, he learns that he is a descendant of a race of winged people that profess to be from the Heavens. He also learns more about his past and is given hope for the future, but that hope comes with a high price. Lorn is given a choice: he can save his family or watch them die.

Lililaira and their daughter are taken prisoner by her father, the King of Skoria, Lorn must call on all his resources to rescue them. Forced out of the protective walls of Jior, he must face his many enemies who use his wife and daughter as bait. King Lorn must deal with old enemies and new friends, but will he be able to tell the difference?

Strange dreams plagued his sleep at night. At first, he thought the dreams were caused by apprehension over the news of the army advancing on Jior. Each night the dreams seemed to grow more urgent, and he could not assign blame to that cause anymore. As soon as he closed his eyes, images of a strange place haunted him. Night after night he dreamed of the same mountaintop. On the high peak stood an ancient structure with tall marble columns, circling a huge stone floor. The columns did not support anything solid but seemed to hold up the deep blue sky that quickly swelled with impending snowfall. The wind swirled ice crystals through the columns and seemed to call his name in the whispery tinkle of ice against stone. Lorn felt compelled to fly west. He strained to resist the compunction, telling himself it was the greatest folly to think that a place from his dreams truly existed and that he could find it.

44033265Heirs of Jior

Publication Date: February 27th, 2019

Publisher: Infinity Publishing

This set of adventures starts out with Princess Lyra Song, young and beautiful, stepping into maturity. She and her family attend the funeral of a dear friend. During this sad time, she pursues her hopes and dreams endeavoring to explore a betrothal with the Heir of Krickgold. However, when she is mistaken for a witch by a Lord from a neighboring country, her dreams are dangerously interrupted. Waylaid, taken prisoner and thrown into an iron cage, the delicate Princess of Jior is charged with a crime she didn’t commit and she must do whatever it takes to escape or be wrongfully executed.

Prince Vannier of Jior, known to the Ny-Failen as Little Wing, has been devastated by what happened to his sister Lyra Song, but life must go on and he goes forward with his plan to marry his childhood love. The day of the wedding ceremony he finds his betrothed with another man and now he must face devastating reality and some difficult choices. When his younger brother Dark Star goes missing, Vannier must set aside his own problems to go into the Violent Mountains and find who has taken his little brother. Amidst the turmoil of the hunt, Vannier must face danger, loss, and possible heartbreak.

Dark Star, the youngest Prince of Jior, has been changed forever by the events of his capture and he remains troubled and unable to find peace. A mysterious compelling draws him away from the safety of his home and family. He sets off on his own to investigate and finds a black castle and a beautiful sorceress in dire need of his help. Dark Star must face a demon from the Hells to free them both.

Panic struck like a lightning bolt, and he stood up and whirled around, taking stock of the boundaries of his prison. It was nearly his undoing as pain, nausea and dizziness overtook him. Since his capture by the Troggs a few years back, Dark Star could not stand confined spaces. His wings beat against his back as if telling him to fly and escape. Searching for a door or exit, he could not find one, so he threw himself against the bars on all four sides, testing their strength. He flew up to the barred cage top and heaved. It was no use, he was imprisoned in a strong, heavy, iron prison, and that was all there was to it. He was locked in with no way out, like a bird in a cage. His brain kept screaming over and over, ‘Not again! Not again!’ and he flapped uselessly around the confines of his cage until the pain in his head forced him to stop. Tamping down hard on his terror, concentrating on settling his breathing, he stood in the middle of his cage, wrapped his wings around himself and huddled within their protective embrace. Closing his eyes, he retreated into his mind and waited.

It seemed like hours later when the sound of a door opening and closing reached through his self-imposed trance. The faint glow of a lamp barely drew Dark Star’s attention. He was standing completely still, cocooned within his white wings watching through barely slit eyes. He had withdrawn into his own mind, holding madness at bay.

Book Blitz: ‘The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi Volume I: Homecoming’ by Kelvyn Fernandes

Title: The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi

Volume I: Homecoming

Author: Kelvyn Fernandes

Genre: Fantasy Adventure

 

About the Book:

Follow Peter and Fi as they work together, each searching for something uniquely special to them through the four kingdoms of their known world. It’s a tale of fantastical beasts, peculiar characters, remarkable settings, and a unique brand of biochemistry-based magic. A story that focuses on meaningful character interactions, delicate world building, and intense action battles.

“She emerged within a dark sea of green, shielding her eyes against the crescent moon’s pale blaze. The twinkling stars hummed softly, discordant against the chattering birds below. The lush leaves rippled in the breeze, tempting Fi to dip her toes in for a swim. The wind blew at her back and she turned east to face it. The fresh air carried the salty spray of the Shimmering Sea. Although she could not see it, she knew it was right there. Her ears caught the distant waves crashing against the shore. One last step. She thought.”

Mini Author Interview:

1. Tell us a little about yourself and what got you in to writing?

I graduated McMaster University with a Bachelors in Biochemistry and I use the lessons I learned there to fuel the magic system in my fantasy world. My favourite activities include back-country canoeing in Algonquin Park and travelling with friends. I love taking new places I visit and new people I meet and incorporating them into my writing.

I’ve always been inspired by storytellers. Whenever I ingest media I’m constantly considering “Why did they present it like this? How would I have done it differently?” And writing is my way of telling a story the best way I think it should be told. I’ve always had an active imagination, with some fantastical scenario or far-off adventure playing in the back of my mind. The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi is the one story I couldn’t keep for myself and wanted to share with the world.

2. Do you have a favourite time when you write?

I love writing well into the night. I find the words just flow in the dead silence and distractions are few. It’s not uncommon for me to start a writing session at midnight and go for few hours. Unfortunately this is an impossible schedule to keep when trying to live a normal adult life, so I try my hardest to find inspiration during the day too!

3. Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?

I definitely just let the story take me wherever it wants. During the planning phase, I brainstorm all kinds of ideas over weeks and months and then fit those thoughts into a coherent outline. Then during the writing phase, I do my best to stick to that outline, but my characters often take me on their own detours or decide to spark a conversation that can go on for a few pages. It’s always good to have a plan, but that plan needs to be malleable to your whims.

4. What genre are your books and what drew you to that genre?

My books are a fantasy adventure. Magic and monsters. Fantastical settings and deep bonds. It’s the stuff I always loved growing up and I was excited to tackle the genre in my own unique way. That being said, its important to derive inspiration from all walks of life. I enjoy reading mysteries, thrillers, biographies, histories, etc. I find it’s useful to enhance my palate and consider and incorporate ideas I never would have come across otherwise.

5. What advice would you give for someone thinking about becoming a writer?

Just write! Seriously, you’ll never know whether you’re any good at it until you find out. If you’re unsure or embarrassed, keep your writing to yourself or share it anonymously. But when you’re ready, show it to your friends and family and ask for their input. You need to have confidence in your work in order for it to succeed. Also, don’t just blindly take advice if it doesn’t fit your style. Go against conventions! Who cares? Do what you want in the way that you want to do it, and your passion will drive you forward!

Title: Fireside Chat with Grammar Nazi Serial Killer 

A psychological thriller with a female protagonist

Author: Ryan Suvaal

Genre: Crime, Thriller & Mystery,

Suspense, Psychological

 

About the Book:

Seventeen gruesome killings across the United States, within a span of six months and there was one clear connection among victims. They were all book authors. While media was decorating the murders with sensationalist stories, and law enforcement was playing catch-up, the homicidal maniac remained elusive and secretive. Things got very interesting, however, when one day she decided to appear on an internet talk show for an honest fireside chat. Her reason for being on this show was not a quest for fame, but something much more disturbing.

Suvaal weaves a fast-paced, dark, serial killer tale. It’s a story which is intense in parts yet comic on the edges and keeps the reader hooked in. A psychological thriller with a female protagonist.

Trigger Warnings: Few descriptions of violence and gore.

Excerpt

Chapter 1 : Respect

Stella woke up in her bathtub and felt a little hazy. The back of her head and neck hurt like hell. Her vision was still blurry. She definitely was in her bathroom but the lights were dim. She tried to get up but couldn’t.

“Good morning, sunshine.” She heard a soft voice on her left.

She realized there was a mysterious woman standing on the left side of the bathtub. The woman had a sleek build and was dressed in a gray shirt, black trousers, and a black jacket. She was wearing blue clinical gloves and a dark black cloth mask. The mask covered her face from just above her nose all the way to the back.

Her two eyes gawked at Stella from behind the mask. Stella tried to move but she realized she was trapped in a sticky liquid. The bathtub was filled with a translucent, viscous fluid. And she was dipped neck deep into it.

“Oh, forget about moving now.” The woman chuckled. “This is thixotropic epoxy resin, max industrial grade. And you have been set only for a few minutes. Now, after our little chit-chat here, I am going to dip you completely in it. Then I am gonna put in a few thousand-watt light bulbs in here to heat up this place and hasten the curing process. Within 24 hours you should be 95% solid within this resin. The best part is that your kids are not here. They will be back only after a week. No servants, cooks or gardeners in here, so no one will come and disturb you in this remote village house where you were planning to pen down your next magnum opus. Whoever comes next, though, will find your perfectly laid, resin-preserved body here.”

“Please, I have two kids. Please … let me go,” Stella pleaded. She was still stupefied.

“Are you asking me a question or is that a declarative statement? I can’t decide.”

“Please, please, my family my kids, they are dependent on me.” Stella now started to cry. Who was this freak who had dipped her in resin and was threatening her life?

“Let me tell you I do feel sorry for you and your family. Though you can’t see my face from beneath my mark, tears are rolling down my cheeks as we speak. Perhaps they are not tears; I may have something in my eyes that I need to wash off.”

“Please let me go.”

“Oh no, I can’t. My compulsiveness has driven me to the point that I could not have taken your bullshit anymore.” The woman now sounded very angry.

“Bullshit? What are you saying? Why are you doing this?”

“Why am I doing this? Oh, this is my favorite part.”

The woman pulled out a book from inside her coat. Stella realized it was her recently published novel, The Fire-nest in My Belly.

The woman started to read. “On page twenty-nine you wrote, and let me quote you here, you wrote, ‘Polly inverted the pancake and she realized that it was now well done and she then took it off the gas stove and put it on Ramesh’s plate.’ You do remember this line from your book?”

Stella kept quiet; she did not want to say anything. She just kept looking at her book in the hands of that freak woman.

“This is your book, right? Stella Davidov, that’s the name on the cover.”

“Yes, it’s me.” Stella could just feebly mutter the words.

“IS IT YOU OR NOT?” the woman screamed.

“Yes, yes it’s me…” Stella again burst into tears.

“This is the bullshit you write? You do realize you are missing a few …

 

About the Author:

Ryan Suvaal is an American writer, passionate about writing page-turner psychological thrillers. His favorite hangout is a coffee shop where he guzzles in tonnes of caffeine and weaves characters pumped up with deadly intentions and worlds full of thrill, suspense, and gore.

Publisher: Written Warrior Press

Genre: Health, Mind & Body, Romance

 

About the Book:

Fabulous Goddesses: Mrs. Hot here, inspiring, empowering and entertaining you to the vibrant vitality, sexuality, and joy you deserve on your own personal Mission: Possible. Sixty is the new forty—or even thirty!—as we simply refuse to hang up our running shoes or our sexual attractiveness. To the very, fabulous end!

I’m a gorgeous Goddess who transformed from drab to fab, rut to strut, and shot to hot! I found myself in my late fifties facing a future of loneliness, infirmity, and pain—single, in a job from hell, and battling emotional issues that left me unhealthy, unattractive, and in despair. The only men on my sofa were Ben and Jerry! With time goosing me with “it’s now or never,” I plunged into my makeover, a journey of emotional, physical, and sexual healing; then, after decades away from it, the world of dating, with its mind-blowing contemporary dynamics. Fearless, edgy, and disruptive, I’m Sex and the City’s Samantha 2.0, now fully ripened—and that much more wise, joyous, and juicy. We’re not getting older, we’re gettingbolder; my quarter million Facebook followers agree (www.facebook.com/SmokinMrsHot/).

Life should be lived at full tilt at any age, without boundaries and without apology. To that end, I share my journey and wisdom with you here, much adapted from my blog at http://www.mrshot.com. Unabashedly feminine yet feminist, I write about health, beauty, allure, sexuality, self-actualization, and the romance and sex life these pursuits make possible—my erotic adventures. Meanwhile, I encourage you to access your own Inner Goddess to create the fabulous life you deserve!

Part One: In Hot Pursuit details my transformation and sets you on your path to an exuberant, sexy lifestyle. In Part Two, I share some of my erotic stories—True Confessions. You’ll meet my local MENagerie, as well as a few exotic foreign acquisitions: intriguing men of all ages.

Why exist an existence when we can live a Life à la Hot?

 

Three Reasons to Love The Book of Hot

1. Addresses the transformational aspirations of Boomer women with a unique combination of self-help strategy, inspiration and spicy entertainment.

2. Uniquely disrupts societal expectations for older women, liberating them from ageism, sexism and other artificial constraints to actualize their most fulfilled feminine feminist selves, sexually and otherwise.

3. Inspiration, empowerment and entertainment uniquely delivered in a witty, polished literary style, powering transformation with punch and panache.

About the Author:

I’ve got a bad hottitude, and I’ve every intention of keeping it! Though I grew up in the Midwest and a few foreign countries, New York City is the great love of my life, and I’ve lived there (with a couple detours to Europe and Sedona) ever since college. I attended the Madeira School, studied political science and art history at Vassar College, and have two masters degrees, one in education, the other in fashion design and illustration. I’ve had many a career, spanning banking to magazine editing to public relations to fashion design, which I spent most of my time in. Around the time of 9/11, my social conscience led me to choose a new path as a public school teacher in a poor Bronx neighborhood, an eleven-year journey so grueling I wrote a book about it. Left to deal with the wreck I’d become from that experience, in my late fifties I transformed myself and began blogging about my makeover and ensuing dating adventures (http://www.mrshot.com). Besides romance, travel is my great passion, and I’ve explored the planet from Easter Island to the Ice Hotel in the Arctic. I have a grown son, and I live gloriously single in Manhattan, ever moving onward, upward and hotward. Join my quarter of a million followers on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/SmokinMrsHot/). BECAUSE SOME LIKE IT HOTTER.
