Author Interview: CALLING THE REAPER by Jason Pere @Goddessfish

fs_callingthereaper_banner-copy

Can you describe your dream home?

Something secluded off in a wilderness refuge. It would have all the means to be self-sufficient and afford the inhabitants a lavish and comfortable life while also having the ability to quickly reach civilization when the loneliness gets too great for comfort.

If we were to come to your house for a meal, what would you give us to eat?

I probably wouldn’t give you anything to eat but I would make sure that you had a beverage of your choice.  My darling wife on the other hand would likely proceed to cook you a scrumptious and hearty southern meal.  Her motto is “If you love it, feed it.”

Tell us about the absolute BEST fan letter you have received.

I have only ever received on piece of “fan mail”. I have to say that I was pretty thrilled to receive that letter. I think that the highest complement that I have received on my writing came from my editor and writing buddy, Kathrin Hutson. She told me that “My work has officially made her experience a wider range of emotions than any other author, ever.”

Say your publisher has offered to fly you anywhere in the world to do research on an upcoming book, where would you most likely want to go?

Tough question because as a fantasy writer I generally do precious little research and just wing it from my imagination. I do like to feature characters of Knightly quality in much of my work so in that respect I would like the chance to go to jolly old England one day.

Who designed the book cover for the book you are touring?

I have had two cover designs. The first was done by a long time artist friend of mine, Christy Jackson Nicholas. The current version of the cover was designed by the incredibly gifted author/illustrator Sarah Cushaway.

mediakit_bookcover_callingthereaperThe time of the Unity has ended. Now, the realm of man is stranded between Paradise and Purgatory. The Valkyrie and Reaper battle over the fate of all who pass from the land of the living and into the afterlife.

Eight mortal spirits from vastly different worlds tread the same, inevitable path toward their last, crucial decision. Within them all exists the defining conflict every man must face—to look upon the end of their life with glory and honor, or to give credence to their baser longings, calling the Reaper to their own demise.

In this rich, harrowing tale of pride, deceit, honor, vengeance, and redemption, each individual must battle their inner turmoil, facing the sacrifices they have made before their unavoidable end in the land of the living.

But their last day in life is also their first day of death amidst the terrors of the underworld. Lord Master Death wants them all…and the real battle has only just begun.

Excerpt:

Aristo reached far within and blocked all the pain shooting through his being. I am Praetorian, my flesh does my bidding. Again, he commanded his eyes to open. When he finally managed to force them open, the agony consuming his head must have felt very much like staring straight into the blazes of the sun. He felt the tearing of skin as his world instantly turned from the darkest black to a moment of brightest white. His eyes watered heavily and he blinked, trying to clear away at least some of the dried blood which had sealed his eyes shut. For several moments, everything was a blur, but then he could distinguish colors and shapes again.

He nearly wished that he had in fact been blinded; he would have at least been spared the image before him. Aristo had been wounded in battle before, but never like this. His body lay covered in a blanket of dried crimson. No one would have known that he bore the deep purple uniform of the Praetorian Legion had they even bothered to look at him. It was confounding that he had bled so profusely and could still draw breath, still feel the beat of his heart within his chest. A moment of warrior’s pride overtook him when he studied his twisted form and realized the excruciating pain was not unwarranted. Then he remembered.

Captured, he thought. I’ve been captured.

Amy J Hawthorn

Kelly’s been framed for diamond theft and nothing is more important than clearing her name and keeping her job. There’s only one problem, the deadly snowstorm tearing through Kentucky.

Detective Jake Bowie comes home exhausted and prepared to sleep his vacation away. His dog, Jasper, has more important things in mind. Say like rescuing a half-frozen, damsel in distress.

Jules spends his life in a solitary cabin in the woods, content with only his ax for company. When the long-vacant cabin nearby is rented out, he’s forced to endure a neighbor. Never in a million years did he expect it to be Winter.

A client she discovers spooning her from behind when she wakes up in his bed! Reed finds Mason charming, tempting and hot!

An early snowstorm dumps an irresistible woman at Mason Tate’s door. As beautiful and enticing as he finds her, career focused Mason doesn’t do entanglements of any type.

Cover Reveal: Barrier by D.C. Renfroe #Romance @goddessfish

mbb_coverreveal_tourbanner_barrier

GENRE: Romance Thriller

RELEASE DATE OF THE BOOK:  October 10th, 2016.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00057]When Claire Luna is kidnapped and taken to a remote island, her predictable life is torn to shreds. She thought she understood grief, loss and loneliness. But nothing prepared her for the island.

Tucker Knight had his world turned upside down when he was a young teen. He’d known love, security and normality. But things changed, and somehow he lost his innocence along the way.

Barrier takes you on a compelling, thrilling and sometimes brutal journey of Claire and Tucker, who in a bid to control their destiny, must learn about trust and submission. And also about love.

The island is under the control of Dr. Stephen Bell, a scientist obsessed with the secrets of humanity through genetic engineering. Claire is part of his obsession, and quickly comprehends Bell’s twisted intentions. She is forced to decide between submission and life-altering consequences. In her desperate attempt to survive, Claire surprises Bell and Tucker with her strength to fight.

But, can she trust Tucker? Is he her enemy or her savior? Claire understands that to surrender means to survive, but can she endure? Tucker can’t help but be enamored by the spirited and determined Claire, but to survive, he must face and overcome his haunting past. Up until Claire’s arrival on the island, he had never thought himself capable, or deserving, but perhaps this was his chance to finally do the right thing.

A Duchess in Name by Amanda Weaver (Contest) #Historical #Romance @Goddessfish

MBB_TourBanner_ADuchessInName

MediaKit_BookCover_ADuchessInNameVictoria Carson never expected love. An American heiress and graduate of Lady Grantham’s finishing school, she’s been groomed since birth to marry an English title–the grander the better. So when the man chosen for her, the forbidding Earl of Dunnley, seems to hate her on sight, she understands that it can’t matter. Love can have no place in this arrangement.

Andrew Hargrave has little use for his title, and even less for his cold, disinterested parents. Determined to make his own way, he’s devoted to his life in Italy, working as an archaeologist. Until the collapse of his family’s fortune drags him back to England, to a marriage he never wanted and a woman he doesn’t care to know.

Wild attraction is an unwanted complication for them both, though it forms the most fragile of bonds. Their marriage of convenience isn’t so intolerable after all–but it may not be enough when the deception that bound them is finally revealed.

Excerpt:

It was too good to be true. The heir to a duke and also unspeakably beautiful. For so long, she’d struggled to avoid thinking about the physical aspects of marriage, since for her, it might have involved Sturridge or someone equally odious. But looking at Lord Dunnley, it wasn’t at all a trial to imagine that part. Perhaps it wouldn’t be a humiliating indignity to be endured. At the moment, surprising as the thought was, she couldn’t imagine disliking anything about submitting to this man’s attentions.

Then Lord Dunnley’s fierce eyes landed on her and she couldn’t breathe. He was so handsome, and to feel his regard on her, to see those eyes looking straight at her, seeming nearly to look inside her, shook her right to her core. The power of it pooled low in her belly. She’d met her share of handsome men, but this immediate and powerful attraction was all new. All her social training fled her as her pulse beat frantically in her throat. As they stood locked in some sort of unspoken communication, she was helpless to do anything but stare at him as he stared back.

TRAILER

The Sceptre of Morgulan by Matthew D. Ryan (Contest) #Fantasy @Goddessfish

MBB_TourBanner_TheSceptreOfMorgulan copy (2)Coragan of Esperia has another job to do. Can he and his companions capture the Sceptre of Morgulan and prevent an apocalypse? Or will Korina outmaneuver them again and escape with the prize? So much hinges on the efforts of so few—if they fail in their quest, if the evil witch Korina the Black succeeds, she may gain an unrivaled power over the forces of darkness; a power she will not hesitate to use.

Excerpt:

MediaKit_BookCover_SceptreOfMorgulan (2)“Accident or no, it makes no difference,” his father said. “You’ve got to be better than that, son. You’re worthless and you’ll never amount to anything unless you straighten up.” He swung the strap again; it struck him across his shoulder blades garnering two new welts and a bloody line of damaged flesh. “I won’t have myself a worthless son.”

Again, the strap came down. Gaelan fell to his knees. The tears flowed freely now; he couldn’t stop them. He felt small and helpless, too weak to defend himself, a victim of pitiful circumstance. People often spoke of the gods, but where were they now? How could such injustice be permitted? Either the gods did not exist, or they did not care. Either way, thought of their so-called mercies did not help him. Mardikkar. Auraria. Neither one was there to stop the pain. He struggled to his feet.

Weak. Helpless. Weak. Helpless. The words formed a grim incantation in his mind. Something to focus on. Something to fight against.

I will not remain a victim, he thought. Not forever. He looked back over his shoulder and saw his father holding the leather strap, preparing to strike yet again. And though his knees quaked and his body bled, he felt a burning anger in his chest. Someday, father, he thought, I will hold the whip, and it will be you begging for mercy. And when that day comes, I will remember this moment and I will give you exactly what you deserve.

His father struck again.

Gaelan awoke.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

MediaKit_AuthorPhoto_SceptreOfMorgulanMatthew D. Ryan is a published author living in upstate New York on the shores of Lake Champlain. His work has been featured on-line at Aphelion.com and YesteryearFiction.com. He has been deeply involved in the fantasy genre for most of his life as a reader, writer, and game designer. He is the operator of the web-site matthewdryan.com which features his blog, “A Toast to Dragons,” a blog dedicated to fantasy literature, and, to a lesser extent, sci-fi. Mr. Ryan says he receives his inspiration from his many years as an avid role-player and fantasy book reader. He has spent many long hours devising adventures and story-lines as well as gaming systems for role-playing games, playing a motley assortment of characters in RPG worlds, as well as digesting the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien, Robert Jordan, and others. As a result, he has great depth of experience in the fantasy genre and feels it was a natural shift for him to move into fantasy writing.

Mr. Ryan is the author of the exciting dark fantasy novel, Drasmyr, The Children of Lubrochius, and The Sceptre of Morgulan, as well as a growing number of short stories. His first novel, Drasmyr, won the book of the month award on Long and Short Reviews: Young Adult for the month of September 2012. The story features a traditional Dracula type vampire in a Middle-Earth type setting. It is a dark fantasy geared toward teens and adults that has consistently earned reviews in the four and five star range. Drasmyr serves as the prequel to his series: From the Ashes of Ruin. In addition to Drasmyr, The Children of Lubrochius, and The Sceptre of Morgulan, Mr. Ryan has published several short stories on-line, including: “Haladryn and the Minotaur”(published at the now defunct Pegasus On-line), “The River’s Eye”(published at YesteryearFiction.com) , “Escape”(published at Aphelion.com), and the three-story collection Of Dragons, Love, and Poison.. He has also spoken on the topic of “World-Building” utilizing his considerable experience as an author and game-designer. When not engrossed in his fantasy worlds, Mr. Ryan can be found volunteering at the local food shelf or playing with his cat, “Confucius,” who is as wise and wily as his name suggests.

Amanda Young reveals… (Contest) #EroticRomance #GLBT #Menage

Hello and thank you for having me on The Snarkology. I’m thrilled to be here. Today I’d like to talk about reading, writing, and share the brand-spanking-new cover for my upcoming erotic romance novel, Circling Back, with you all. At the end of this post you’ll also find a Rafflecopter so you can enter to win the $10 Amazon gift card I’m giving away in honor of this cover reveal.

Like many fans of romance, I started reading Harlequin novels when I was a teenager. I heartloved the grand sweeping gestures and the over-the-top story telling. The secret baby trope was a favorite of mine. As I got a little older, I discovered erotic romance and was so inspired that I decided to try writing my own—which led to a brand new career. Even so, I still dipped my fingers into the occasional sweet romance so I could get my secret baby fix. A few years later, I fell in love with M/M romance stories and decided to pen one. Several stories later, I challenged myself by throwing a secret baby twist into a M/M novel I was writing at the time.

Fast forward eight years and about forty published stories later, and I found myself itching to write yet another secret baby story, only this time I was aiming for something a little different, a little more challenging. After nearly a decade of writing M/M romance, I set my goals on penning another M/M/F romance. To get in the right mind frame, I started reading every contemporary menage I could get my hands on. There were few to be found that I hadn’t already read long ago, which only furthered my desire to write another one.

The idea for Circling Back started as a speck of an idea about a reunion between three people and percolated at the back of my mind for almost a year before I finally couldn’t ignore it any longer. The characters took shape, their individual personalities coming to life, and I realized I wasn’t only writing a menage story, but yet another secret baby story with a twist. The short novella I had outlined took on a life of its own and kept going and going until it was a full blown novel with traces of all my favorite genres wrapped up in a pretty package. I hope readers enjoy following Stella, Holden, and Gavin’s journey to happiness as much as I loved writing about it.

So, without further ado, I present the cover for Circling Back.
