Everyone
is searching for Mason.
Zeus
sent Hermes, and the Oracles have used their magic, with no success.
A sparkle of hope arises when Eris, the goddess of Chaos, sends an
invitation to her wedding engagement party. She’s holding Mason
hostage, and Skylar and her friends only need permission to enter
Eris’s world to rescue him.
At
the party, Eris gives them one condition: In exchange for Mason, they
must travel to the Land of Reverse and bring back the bottle of gold
water King Midas used to wash himself free of his gift. Further chaos
follows when Eris not only sets up a hunt in the Labyrinth of Crete,
but makes a bargain with the Titans she rescued.
The
Titans possess power more than anyone anticipated, and Cronus is
hungry for revenge after his own children locked him up in Tartarus.
No one is safe. Not even the humans.

The
Angel Knights
Prequel/Novella
by
Mary Ting
Genre:
Urban Fantasy
 
Michael
and Claudia’s decision to move back to Crossroads was to keep their
children safe, but they can’t escape who they are. Their children,
Zachary and Lucia, were destined to be demon hunters—Venators. From
the age they were able to hold a sword, they were trained to become
the best and to ensure they would become leaders one day.
All
is peaceful throughout the land until the Fallen and demons’
presences were felt in the between and on Earth. As the Venators
investigate these locations, they will quickly learn how dangerous
their lives are. Hearts will be broken. Teammates will lose their
lives. And they will face obstacles which will test their faith.
As
danger grows, the fear of fallen angels and demons regrouping has the
Divine Elders on pins and needles. Now, Zachary and Lucia, along with
Uncle Davin, must prepare themselves—mentally and physically—to
live on Earth to investigate where the focal point of evil resides
before it’s too late.

When
teens go missing in Hawaii, a group of demon-hunters—half human and
half angel—disguised as high school students, must leave
Crossroads, the place where they reside. In a race against time, they
uncover the mystery connecting the missing teens, which dates back to
the era of the Knights Templar. However, when they discover one of
the Templars passed down a book containing all the secrets and codes
to finding a particular treasure, they soon realize this forbidden
treasure needs to be found before Cyrus, the lord of the possessor
demons, acquires it—a treasure which been safeguarded and hidden
from him.
There
is only one problem: the pages containing the clues leading to the
treasure is missing. When the first page is found, Cyrus threatens to
kill more descendants of the Knights Templar if it is not given to
him by Friday the thirteenth. In the midst of threats and discovery,
the demon-hunting angels find they are not alone when supernatural
beings begin to reveal themselves. Can they put their differences
aside and work together to solve the Knights Templars’ cipher? As
they astral travel to the past, they witness a lot more than they
have bargained for. And some things are better left unseen.

I´m
Cyci Cade and I write urban fantasy and fiction novels for young
adult.

 

I´ll
never forget the first time I wrote a story; I was in fifth grade.
That experience enchanted me. What should be an insignificant
composition became a four pages flash story. My teacher didn´t like
it very much, but who cared? She did.
Well,
I had to shorten my compositions. However, it didn´t discourage me;
on the contrary, it made me try harder. I like a good challenge. I
like to try new things; some of them don´t work as I expect, but it
doesn´t matter. I always learn new things.
I
started writing articles for magazines, newspapers, and blogs. I
wrote my first book in 2010 and published it in 2012. It was so
amazing that I didn´t stop anymore. Writing makes me happy.
I
have received 5 stars reviews from professional websites, and
remarkable comments that have encouraged me.
During
my free time, I like reading, watching TV series, and movies.
I
live in Brazil and I have a cat named Angel. I love cats too.

Magic, unique creatures, strong characters

Kevin, well us where you were born and where do you live now. 

I was born in Lehi, Utah and currently live within a stone’s throw of where I was born.  However, that current residence came by way of Arizona, North Carolina, and Brazil before coming back to Lehi, Utah again.

Kevin L Nielsen

What makes you passionate about writing? 

Coming up with new and interesting worlds, ideas, and creations is what keeps me passionate about writing.  I’ve been writing novels since I was 11 years old and it is the one thing I still do now, 16 years later, that I did then.  Writing fuels my passion for writing, which in turn fuels more writing.  It’s one of the reasons why I have so many different projects going at any one time.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? 

The first draft of my most recent manuscript, STORMS, was written in 72 days.  Its predecessor, SANDS, which is the first book in the Sharani Series, was written in about 96 days, if I remember correctly.

Who or What inspired you to write this book? 

Two things.  The first were two people at the LTUE (Life, the Universe, and Everything) Symposium on 2014.  Johnny Worthen and Shallee MacArthur.  They talked about (more…)

Q: Mark Minson is visiting today. Mark where were you born?
A: I was born in Midvale, Utah. I have lived in Utah most of my life.
Q: What is the most difficult thing about being an author?
A: For me, the most difficult thing about being an author is finding the time to write. With five younger children and either myself or my wife being in school most of the last eight years, time is at a premium. Which is unfortunate because I keep getting story ideas with little time to write them!
Q: Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

Have you ever been Drawn into the Mist?

Sunday, September 27th, 2015
Philip E Carroll how has your family background affected your writing, if it has?
From the time we were very young, my twin brother and I used to sit around and make up stories using. We each had our list of characters and talked out each of the experiences in their voices. I think this would fall under “Role Play” as my 13 year old daughter describes what she does on line with her friends.
When I was an early teen, my older brother started reading Lord of the Rings. The rest of us subsequently did as well. It started us all (four brothers) reading fantasy. When we would backpack in the Sierras and along the Pacific coast we relived these and other stories.
I feel that gave me a great love for using my imagination. Some of that comes forward to me now to be used in my stories.

What gave you the nerve to attempt your first novel?

Where are you from? I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but currently am living in a small town called Coweta which is about 30 miles away from where I started.

janice grove bw

If you could travel to any time in history, when would you visit? There are so many places and times that have interested me. However, if I had to pick only one time and place… the time of Atlantis. Since there’s only one true description, but so many stories about it, I’d like to see it for myself.

If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would be? Micah. But that would mean I’d have dinner with David as well, since you can’t have one without the other.

What food would you serve? Micah seems to love chocolate chip pancakes the best, so I’d make sure he had those. David and I would probably chow down on a couple bacon cheeseburgers with French fries though. (more…)

Out of the Dark and Into the Pit?

Holli Anderson, tell us where you were born and where do you live now.
I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah and I now live in Grantsville, Utah–the same place I’ve lived (mostly) since I was 10 years old.
What makes you passionate about writing?
It’s a great way to escape the reality of life. It’s such a great feeling to create something entirely from my own mind. When my characters start to head down a storyline I never intended–that’s exciting stuff! I have so many ideas for new books and new storylines for my current series–I wish I had more time to write.

Adrienne, thanks for visiting my blog today. Tell us where you were born and where you live now?

Adrienne Author - 3650
I was born in Utah and still live there. While I love to travel and experience various cultures, I also love to come home and be with friends and family.

Nice…What makes you passionate about writing?
It’s probably because I’m so passionate about reading. Books keep us company when no one else can. They’re also a window into other lives and worlds. How can I not love books and creating my own stories?

Amen to that. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

Nice, what is the most difficult thing about being an author?

Getting the word out about my book.

Amen to that. Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

My father. He kept a library of books at my house. I consumed them. I probably shouldn’t have read some of the books when I did. For example, I read Rambo First Blood Part II in fifth grade. I think I read The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings first, though.
