A college professor is blackmailed by a student…DR. Vampyre

Dr.
Vampyre
by
S.N. McKibben
Genre:
Paranormal Romance
 
When
a college professor is blackmailed by a student …
he
has to walk the fine line of being true to his principles and not
letting his bloody secret out.
Dr.
John Tennison, professor and physician, wakes up every morning and
counts his spoons—a measure of how many tasks he feels he can
accomplish during his day. One spoon to walk down the stairs, one
spoon to teach a class, one spoon to deal with tardy students. Lupus
limits him, but he still gives lectures and works at a hospital. He
also makes time for friends, and once a week visits Sanguine Loon’s
to sate—or subvert—his one strange desire. His nemesis, the one
thing besides lupus that keeps him from leading a normal life, is the
blood at the bottom of a little paper Dixie cup.
While
Tennison’s blood-drinking habit is a secret, it’s well known that
he’s the campus asshole and has no tolerance for students who show
up late. When he kicks Vogue model Ylati Badashi out of his lecture
hall for wandering in ten minutes late, she’s having none of it.
She pouts, she seduces, she blackmails, and puts Tennison at odds
with his butler, and finally she tells him the truth about why she
needs to be in his class.
Tennison
is a man of principles, and though he swears he won’t change his
mind, he starts to react unexpectedly to Ylati even as he hates her
for making him suspicious of his trusted butler. Tennison has to find
out where Mitch goes on his nights off and must deal with a budding
attraction to a woman he occasionally hates, all while learning new
secrets about himself. It’s going to take a lot of spoons.
Scroll
up and help the doctor count his spoons!

Heroes revolving around social taboos. When ever asked, she’ll reply
her whole life can be seen through a comic strip ~ sometimes twisted,

Beyond Every Mirror
Anachronistic Dimensions Book 1
by Christine Church
 Genre: Paranormal Romance, Fantasy
 

His death is the only thing that can save the life of the woman he loves.

Diana Gabaldon meets Anne Rice in this fast-paced time dimension paranormal romance that will blow your mind.

Beside his own image, Dane Bainbridge sees another; a ginger haired beauty–behind her, red mountains and clouds as if from another world. He’s seen her his entire life, a life filled with glamour and fame… and loneliness. For the woman in the mirror is his one true love. But, this he does not know, not until he is dragged into her world–one of beasts and lands beyond imagination. One where his sacrifice is the only thing keeping her and the world in which she resides alive.

Once they are together, he remembers it all, and that knowledge means his doom for all eternity. But if he escapes her world, she will perish as will all others behind the looking glass. He is the key that keeps her alive, and she is the key that gives him hope. Can they break the curse that keeps them separated by torture and death? Can they escape together from a world that exists beyond every mirror?

December 20, 2014

He remained perfectly still as the chains were wrapped around his body. The metal cooled the heated flesh of his bare chest. All around him echoed a cacophony of screams, bellows and stomping of feet that almost crushed him beneath its weight. The air tightened with the chains and a rush of collective exhilaration and nervousness swirled through his senses. He glanced quickly at the red-faced, muscular man standing beside him, who finished fastening the chains and stepped away.

He closed his eyes and drew a deep breath. And then he waited, anxiety pounding in his breast. The air was thick with heat and sweat and smoke, but he’d grown accustomed to it through the years, as with the rest of the ritual. The one thing he could never get used to, however, was the flip-flop in the pit of his stomach that occurred as the platform he stood on slowly lifted into the air, revealing him to the anxiously awaiting crowd that crushed nearer. Starving animals before a feast. He looked straight out, refused to look down, lest the vertigo take him.

How he hated heights.

He listened for the eerie orchestration of strings and organ that marked the beginning of his leisurely descent back to earth. The notes began with a rhythmic resonance that was almost conquered by impatient bellows that quickly turned to a roar of frenzied excitement. As the platform lowered, a muzzy sensation circled Dane’s mind and his throat felt as though his stomach had been hoisted up into it.

He held his breath in anticipation.

An amplified voice echoed over the din. “Ladies and Gentlemen. Through the misty storm they come. Battles rage and blood is spilled and tonight you will feel…the rage of the… Dark Myst!”
The crescendo of notes rose with the screams and soon the vast crowd, shrouded in the mist of machine smoke and lighting from the trusses above, came into view. The platform touched the stage simultaneously with a deafening blast of canon fire, blinding light and searing heat from the pyrotechnics.

Dane thrust his arms outward in an ostentatious display of feigned strength and released his long held breath as the chains fell free of his body. As he leaped forward the crowd crushed against the stage, nearly 20,000 screaming fans all at once a serried mass swarming towards him.

Tingles of excitement clawed at his spine, a feeling that never waned with the years. He ran to the front of the stage and grabbed up the microphone as Bruce struck the first hard note on his Strat. The music pounded out its heavy rhythm and the audience’s cries warred with its volume. Sharp beams of laser light cut a zigzag through the haze. Dane twirled around and his heart jumped.

Oh what fresh hell!

He was staring at himself!

The stage had been set up like a room in a lover’s palace; giant mirrors everywhere—behind, to the sides, even above, stretching as high as the trusses. Due to a severe snow squall the truck carrying an important part of the band’s stage set had gone off the road and gotten stuck. No one was injured, but the set had not arrived in time to be set up in the sold-out Target Center. Someone had decided the light show would look better reflected. Dane, however, was aghast. Not only was their stage set designed to coincide with most of their songs, but the effects of the colored lights continuously bouncing from mirror to mirror would inevitably result in the whole band plagued with a throbbing headache by concert’s end.

Their manager had to have approved this—someone had to have approved it. No one had told Dane! The mirrors must have been erected last moment. Everyone associated with the band knew how Dane hated mirrors. But now, no matter which direction he turned, he saw himself in his black costume and ragged-edged cloak; which portrayed him as the yin to the band’s yang. They were the mist, and he the dark storm.

To keep his attention from the mirrors, Dane fixed his gaze on the audience and the speckled glow from thousands of cell phone flashes, resembling a sparkling star-filled evening that stretched out before him. But he knew he would eventually have to turn around.
By the third song it became maddening, not able to dance around as he normally would for fear of what might be hidden in those mirrors. But, thankfully, half way through the song he spotted one of the girls he’d met the last time he was in town. At last, something to keep his mind and eyes busy. In the front row she stood, arms raised toward him. The bulldozing horde had her pressed against the stage, long auburn hair flittering about as she bobbed her head to the beat of the music. He smiled in her direction, despite his sudden dread at remembering the promise he’d made to her the year before. A promise—ashamedly—he had no intention of keeping.

He had never seen her before that night a year ago, so she hadn’t been a regular. Conquering new territory was always fun. She’d displayed the looks normally reserved by the group of girls who always seem to know just how to be chosen above others and handed backstage passes. This one, however, had taken a different approach. She had approached him on the floor of his hotel as he made his way to his room. Fortunately he had been alone—a rarity. He had invited her in. Ample breasts and a nice round bottom offset by a perfectly slender waist. Dane knew he would be having a good time that night.

She had wanted too much, however, a commitment he couldn’t give. Teasing him and denying him her favors until he’d made the vow. What else was there to do? And so he had said exactly what she wanted to hear. And, as naïve as she was, she had believed him. He couldn’t, after all, say no. Not when she lay there in his hotel bed displaying all her luscious charms. But he couldn’t keep his promise, either. There were plenty of women in countless towns, women the band’s crew knew were his type. Women who would be offered passes just so he could meet them, drink with them, bed them. And there would be more waiting in the next town after that.

Now, a pass with the name of a local radio as sponsor dangled around her neck. So, she had won backstage passes this time. There would be no avoiding her tonight. What would he say to her? He could not even recall her name. As her fiery glare burned through him, he absentmindedly turned away, catching Bruce’s smug grin as he looked from the girl to Dane. He mouthed the words “there she is,” as he switched guitars with an assistant for the next set of songs.

Dane smirked, shook his head at his friend, then strutted to the other side of the stage as the next song began—one of the band’s trademark tunes that he wrote about a medieval land of lords and knights. He wielded a sword, one of many from his collection, and proceeded to dance around in choreographed mock swordplay as the hired orchestra played their bit.

At this point, his disappointment surged that the integral element of their regular stage set had not arrived. The video wall depiction of a castle and rolling green hills was installed. However, mirrors now replaced the large faux-stone steps that were to lead to the balcony above the stage, giving Dane the appearance of riding atop one of two red-eyed dragons that should, at that moment, be gazing menacingly down at the crowd, smoke, laser and fire effects erupting from the eyes and fanged mouths. Those that came for the show would be fervently disappointed.

During Bruce’s brief guitar solo near mid-song, Dane closed his eyes for a moment and raised the sword high, drawing in the deep odor of sweat and heat. Machine-created fog crept along the stage and curled around his feet like a chill mist in a graveyard. The lights were so dim he could scarce see even the front row of the audience as the laser lights sliced through the stadium and across his body like sharp-edged blades.

In accordance with his routine, and without second thought, he twirled around—and was suddenly staring right into one of the tall mirrors that littered the stage. The lights brightened. His craggy-hemmed cloak billowed as he spun from the ghastly reflection of his own sweat-soaked face only to catch the same image in the mirror beside that one. His gut wrenched and he tried to turn away, back to the front of the stage, back to the audience. But he froze as movement caught his eye and when he turned his head, she was there—the “Mirror Lady.” His illusion. His own delusion.

Onstage.
As real to him as his own reflection.


No! Not here!

Her thigh-length ginger hair was loose, rather than pulled back in the usual braid. The shining tresses poured over her shoulders like a rushing waterfall and cascaded down a beautiful gown of burgundy velvet that hugged her slim form. The tears in her golden eyes told a tale of sadness that wrenched at his heart, and he felt himself take an involuntary step forward. More familiar to him than Martha or Lance or Sir Kori, the sight of the “Mirror Lady” twisted his gut, a tornado rampaging through him, a tangled enrapture of perplexity and fear, love and pain—as if he had known her for more years than his life was long. And that familiarity drove him somewhere beyond her presence in some glass.
His dilemma with the redhead in the front row disappeared. The girls he’d met in the past or would meet in the future no longer mattered. It was this stranger, this illusion. She alone meant everything—and she scared the hell out of him. But deeper than fear lie an unbearable urge to leap into the mirror and gather her into his arms.

Protective impulses tugged at him relentlessly and he was suddenly frightened not of her but for her. Terror seized his heart, and refused to let go, pounding through him harder than the music that continued to fill the stadium, confusing him profoundly. Passionate emotions thrashed at his brain and his head ached with the need to bring them to the surface. But he couldn’t. A mental barrier walled off the needs screaming for release. Why couldn’t he just go to her; feel for her the love he’d been missing his entire life?
Behind him, the glass’ surface reflected a flurry of activity; lambent light bounced from one mirror to the next, heightening the pain in his head. The small section of audience visible moved and swayed, their images like dancing ghosts in the dark mist of the stadium. Stephan’s long strawberry hair swayed as he bobbed his head up and down while he plucked away at his bass. He hadn’t seen her. At the time Dane didn’t think anyone else saw her, but her form was as solid in the mirror as was his own, as she had been in every mirror throughout his life.

Concentration became impossible. He faltered, his voice cracked and he missed the chorus altogether. Familiar with the music, the mistake must have been quite obvious to the crowd. But he couldn’t turn from that damn mirror.

Dane tried to force his mind back to the song when a searing bolt of pain sliced through his head. The clank of the sword and the microphone sounded loud to his ears, even above the music, as they dropped from his hands and crashed to the stage. Feedback screeched from the monitors and the music stopped. The burden of emotion and conflict pressed him downward and, like Alice, he found himself falling. Down. Down. The spotlights swirled like shooting stars and agony screamed through his shoulder as he hit the hard stage floor.

The fog consumed him.

The stadium went dead silent. Bruce and Stephan rushed towards him. Adrian leapt from behind his drums. Road crew members and strangers circled above. The audience pressed closer to the stage, security guards frantically tried to hold them back. Their lips moved, their hands pounded the stage. He saw them all, yet he heard nothing. And then he was forced into a vacuum of darkness.

 
 

Christine Church has been writing since she was 9 years old. As a kid, she wrote and drew her own picture books, then moved on to short stories as a teen. By her 20’s, she was writing full-length novels, but her first success in publication was a nonfiction book about the care of indoor cats, Housecat, published by Howell Book House in 1998. Several more nonfiction books followed, including the major award winning book, Indoor Cats (TFH publications), which won the Iams Responsible Cat Ownership in 2001. After a broken hand, she took a hiatus from writing for quite some time, then returned to find everything had changed and her world turned upside down. She decided then to take a stab at self publishing. Her first novella, Sands of Time, Fate of the True Vampires won Finalist status in the 2016 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. Her second book, as well as Beyond Every Mirror, have won five-star status on Reader’s favorite.

Springett Hall is haunted?

Wednesday, February 10th, 2016

What is the most difficult thing about being an author?

I think the hardest thing about being an author is finding the balance between considering your audience and not worrying too much about what people think. We write to share these ideas bouncing around in our heads—to get them out there on paper—so even though we’re telling stories that are important to us, we have an audience in mind. There’s nothing more exciting than getting a story into the hands of that audience and hearing good feedback about it, but there are going to be people who don’t love a story or don’t get it—people it just doesn’t speak to. That can be painful, but you can’t try to please everyone, and you can’t let it stop you from writing.

ebwheelerjpeg

Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

I’m really grateful that I had parents who read to me as a child, teachers who encouraged me and taught me to write well, and a husband who supports my goals, but I can honestly say that my critique groups—the Cache Valley chapter of the League of Utah Writers and UPSSEFW—have probably made the biggest difference in my writing. They’ve given me the encouragement and the tough love I needed to push myself to get better and get published.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

I wrote this book on a dare from my husband. We were talking about the various paranormal love stories out there—vampires, werewolves, zombies—and I said it was unfair that ghosts don’t get love stories. He said he didn’t think anyone could write a ghost love story that didn’t end badly. I wanted a break from the more serious manuscript I’d been working on, so I said, “Challenge accepted.”

What is the name of your new book? Tell us more about it.

My novel is The Haunting of Springett Hall.

TheHauntingofSpringettHallCoverSmall

It’s a YA Victorian mystery about Lucy, a ghost who doesn’t remember how she died or much about her life before. She only knows that she died trying to do something important, and that someone is still trying to stop her from completing her task. She has to solve her own murder, fix the mistakes of her past, and stop a necromancer to protect the rest of the people in the house. She has help from Philip, the only living person who can see her, but he’s also suffering from amnesia and may have been her enemy when she was alive.

What genre does your book fall under?

YA mystery or paranormal romance—it has some aspects of both.

What other books would you compared to?

I think readers who like Jonathan Stroud’s Lockwood & Co. series about teenage ghost hunters in London would enjoy this book, as well as anyone who likes mystery, romance, magic, and a bit of spookiness.

What kind of impact do you expect your works to have in the reader’s lives?

I hope readers finish the book feeling like they just had a fun adventure in Victorian England. They may also come away with some thinking points about what love means and our responsibilities for the choices we make.

Is your book self-published or represented by an agency?

The Haunting of Springett Hall is published by Sweetwater Books, an imprint of Cedar Fort Publishing.

Where can we find your book?

My book is available in store at Barnes and Noble and Seagull books, as well as online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Books and Things:

Author Interview for Kim Williams-Justesen

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Kim, welcome to my YA Dark blog. What makes you passionate about writing?

I like that I’m the one in control of things, and that it isn’t done until I say it’s done (or until my editor says it’s done!).

Very nice…Do you have a writing routine?

I work full-time, so I write in the evenings and on weekends. I usually grab a handful of Chips-Ahoy cookies, a big glass of water, and head to my office. I reread the last few pages of where I left off, then I take a deep breath and dive in.

What a great scape. What is the title of your book?

My upcoming YA is called DEATH’S KISS. (more…)

Debra Jayne East author of Radiance: Love after Death

Saturday, April 26th, 2014
  • Debra, what is your typical day like?
  • 1481370_1456700107900455_861958979_n
  • I usually wake up around 8 a.m. every morning here in good old North Carolina and do some stretches and I then let my dog Puppy, {yes, her name is Puppy, lol} out for a run. She’s a black lab that I have had for almost fourteen years. Then I watch the morning news, usually with a light breakfast and then I look at my list of things to do. I see which ones I can accomplish for that day and I go from there. The things on my list are usually research, working on different books or researching guest for my radio show called Sky Watchers. You can find it here: https://www.facebook.com/skywatchersradioshow
  • Do you write with music or not?
  • With music because it set’s the mood for emotion and depth to my characters. I like ambient relaxation music best.
  • Do you outline your manuscript first?
  • No, not really. I think of my style like putting a puzzle together. I may write the beginning and end and then fill in the spaces in-between. I jot down ideas as I go along. Crazy but it seems to work for me.
  • Debra what is the most difficult thing about being an author?
  • Keeping up with social media! Just when I master one thing like Pinterest, then another site pops up with something else to figure out. There are a lot of platforms out there to learn! I’m still trying to figure Twitter out.
  • I hear you. How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?
  • If every night when you go to bed your idea keeps nagging at you and taking on a life of its own, the idea has been “born.” You just have to write it down because you won’t have any peace until you do.
  • LOL. What is the title of your book?
  • 10269991_1458823311021468_851150598_n
  • The title of my book is Radiance: Love after Death.
  • Nice, what inspired you to write this book?
  • I was inspired to write it when I found a crooked heart-shaped stone in the grass one day after the break-up of my marriage. It reminded me that even though your heart is cracked or broken from a bad relationship, it’s still a heart and you can still love again. We all have and deserve a second chance.
  • Interesting. How do you come up with your character’s names?
  • Usually, the names just pop up in my head but if all else fails, I grab a phone book or baby names book. I tend to like unusual names rather than traditional ones.
  • Good for you. Tell us more about your book. 
  • Marena Jacobs was in her forties and divorced after twenty years of marriage and she never imagined she would find herself alone. She thought her marriage was forever, not taken out of her grasp by a cheating husband. She pushed herself into her work, getting exhausted so she wouldn’t have to think about the pain of it all. One Friday evening after working late, she was on her way home. It was raining in torrents and streaks of lightening lit up the sky as she slowly drove towards Eden, North Carolina. She saw what looked like a boy walking in the rain and she had every intention of stopping and calling someone to see if he needed a ride. That was before her car stalled out, and her life changed forever. All she could do was feel herself floating, looking down on what had happened as the young boy, {who seemed enormously strong for someone his age} lifted her out of her car to save her. She thought her life was over until a radiant figure of someone or something stood before her. You will believe that true love never dies.

A readersFavorite review

This adult paranormal story it isn’t your regular Bella meets Eduard kind of saga. It gives a very nice and interesting twist to the many vampire stories out there. It uses a refreshing, renewed and great way to entertain all the vampire readers in the world without tiring them of the genre.

Devani, a human woman who once was connected to her partner—a Sanguine named Roman, is being harassed by the Militia. Her father was the president until he retired and later died. Now his best friend’s son, London, is at the head and is making a sport of (more…)

Amy Freeman a romance author’s interview

Amy is so good to have you for a visit this week. How long have you been writing?

All my life. I wrote a complete screen play at age ten. That’s right…me and Steven Spielberg. My first full length book came about at age thirteen, then two more at age twenty and two more over the last four years. Writing is an escape for me. I have done it always.

Where were you born? 

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah.
