How sick are you of US politics? How doomed is the world because of who has claimed the Oval Office throne—er, chair?

Saturday, June 29th, 2019
King
Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court
by
Kim Iverson Headlee
Genre:
SciFi Time Travel Fantasy
 
How
sick are you of US politics? How doomed is the world because of who
has claimed the Oval Office throne—er, chair?

 

 

Refresh
your spirit by laughing along with what Mark Twain might have written
about today’s political falderal.

 

 

Solidly
entertaining.” —Publishers Weekly

 

 

WINNER
2016 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Gold Medal for Science Fiction &
Fantasy.

 

 

Morgan
le Fay, sixth-century Queen of Gore and the only major character not
killed off by Mark Twain in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s
Court, vows revenge upon the Yankee Hank Morgan. She casts a spell to
take her to 1879 Connecticut so she may waylay Sir Boss before he can
travel back in time to destroy her world. But the spell misses by 300
miles and 200 years, landing her in the Washington, D.C., of 2079,
replete with flying limousines, hovering office buildings,
virtual-reality television, and sundry other technological
marvels.

 

 

Whatever
is a time-displaced queen of magic and minions to do? Why, rebuild
her kingdom, of course—two kingdoms, in fact: as Campaign Boss for
the reelection of American President Malory Beckham Hinton, and as
owner of the London Knights world-champion baseball
franchise.

 

 

Written
as though by the old master himself, King Arthur’s Sister in
Washington’s Court by Mark Twain as channeled by Kim Iverson
Headlee offers laughs, love, and a candid look at American society,
popular culture, politics, baseball… and the human heart.

 

 

Mark
Twain began work on A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court in
1879—the same year the Yankee Hank Morgan departed for his sojourn
in sixth-century Britain. The first edition was published in 1889 and
features more than 200 illustrations by the man who later would
become founder of the Boy Scouts of America, Daniel Carter Beard.
These illustrations are now in the public domain, and a handful have
been incorporated into King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court as
an artistic homage to this classic edition of the first time travel
story in all literature.

Hank” Cauley is branded a failure after refusing to be part of his father’s Salt Lake City brick-making business and then losing his stationary and book store business

Friday, June 28th, 2019

 

 

My name is Robyn Echols. Zina Abbott is the pen I use for my historical novels. I’m a member of Women Writing the West and Western Writers of America. I currently live with my husband in California’s central valley near the “Gateway to Yosemite.”I love to read, quilt, work with digital images on my photo editing program, and work on my own family history.

I am a blogger. In addition to my own blog, I blog for several group blogs including the Sweet Americana Sweethearts blog, which I started and administer.

 

The daughter of a
Georgia plantation owner, Diantha Ames was raised and educated to be a lady.
Surviving the Civil War as a child, her family, in a desperate, but ultimately
unsuccessful bid to save the property of both her father and her uncle,
arranges a marriage between her and her first cousin. Although not a love match,
she and Eugene were amiable. As information about her husband comes to light
after his death in the Gold King Mine disaster that took so many lives in
Wildcat Ridge, she is left with her husband’s hotel and postmaster position to
fill—and a lot of questions.
With Diantha’s
former laundress gone, she hires Hilaina Dowd, whose family hails from the
mountains of Appalachia. Hilaina loyally stays with her mother who wishes to
live out her life in Wildcat Ridge and be buried next to her husband who died
in the mine disaster.
Henry “Hank”
Cauley is branded a failure after refusing to be part of his father’s Salt Lake
City brick-making business and then losing his stationary and book store
business. To bury him far away, his brother and conniving sister-on-law use
their political influence with the territorial Congressional representative to
award him the postmaster position in Wildcat Ridge. He arrives in town to take
over the position starting the first of September only to discover the
postmistress, Diantha, knows nothing about the change, and is not relieved she
no longer is obligated to fill this position originally awarded to her deceased
husband. Finding himself surrounded by those loyal to the soft-spoken, Southern
lady, is he destined to also be a failure in Wildcat Ridge?
Buckley “Buck”
Kramer, wrangler on the Grassy Fork Ranch in Colorado, has not been totally
satisfied with his lot ever since the trip he took to Wildcat Ridge earlier in
the summer with his boss and best friend now he sees the happiness of family
life the two men enjoy after they brought back wives. When two trail-worn young
brothers stumble onto the ranch looking for a meal and permanent jobs, but are
told with winter coming on there is only room for one, Buck insists on leaving
in order to keep the brothers together. Is Buck really dissatisfied with his
job on the ranch, or is this an excuse to return to Wildcat Ridge and the woman
he has not been able to get out of his mind?
  
Diantha, Book 14,
is a stand-alone novel. However, you might enjoy it best by reading all the
books in the series, The Widows of Wildcat Ridge. Also, my other book in the
series, Nissa, Book 3, was written to
be a duet with Diantha—a series
within a series. You might also enjoy reading Nissa if you have not already done so.

  
~ Universal Amazon Link
  
Snippet:
Upon seeing the child’s features for
the first time, Diantha’s throat tightened and threatened to close off her
breath. Her chest seized. She forced herself to inhale and willed a smile on
her face as she stooped down and handed the boy the treat. “There you go,
Eddie.” She studied him up close for a few seconds before she stood once more
and looked over at Sarah, who wore a stricken expression. “Eddie. Did I hear
his name right?”
          “Yes.
He was named after his grandfather.”
          Diantha
turned to once again study the boy, oblivious to the crumbs now scattered on
his cheeks and dropping on her floor, as he happily munched on his cookie.
“Edward is a fine name. We have Edwards in my family, also.”
          Her
uncle, Eugene’s father, had been named Edward Eugene. The older brother lost in
the War Between the States had been named Edward.

Can they work through what’s happened in their individual pasts to create a relationship that will last?

Thursday, June 27th, 2019

 

 

Britney Mills was born in Utah but
parts of her heart lie in Boston, Washington D.C. and Germany. Her love of
writing began with the third grade book her teacher assigned her to write and
she spent hours hidden behind her mother’s couch writing pages and pages about
knights and castles. Now she writes about romance. Go figure.
When she’s not mothering her 4 small children, writing or reading, she’s
probably out playing a sport, going on a hike, or binge watching a murder mystery
series. The way to her heart is through homemade chocolate chip cookies and
five minutes peace.

 

A self-made billionaire, his real
estate agent and three weeks to find the right property.
Jackson Walker hasn’t had the best family life. Growing up in the foster system
in Australia, it wasn’t until he met his college football coach that he
understood what a normal family looked like. When he gets the call that Coach
has passed away, he returns to California for the funeral and to find a place
to honor the man. 

Hailey Montgomery threw herself into real estate soon after breaking up with
her boyfriend nearly five years ago. She’s been working to build a name for
herself and when the chance to make partner at her firm becomes available, she
jumps at the chance. But the only way to achieve that distinction is to find a
commercial property for the guy she’s nicknamed ‘Golden Boy’ from all the
stories her father told about him. 

As spending time together brings them closer, the trust between them is called into
question. Can they work through what’s happened in their individual pasts to
create a relationship that will last?

 

Snippet:
Hailey
brushed her mom’s hair for a moment and then asked, “What will you do now?”
Her mom sat up and looked at her. “What
do you mean?”
“I mean, you and Dad did everything
together. You traveled with him to so many games. What will you do with your
time now?”
Her mom gave her a look of irritation.
“I loved your father dearly, and I am so grateful for all the years we had
together. But don’t think for a minute that I’ll sit and have a pity
party.”
Hailey raised an eyebrow. “What do you
call this?” Her mom swatted her across the shoulder.

 

 

“It’s okay to cry when you’ve lost the
love of your life. And I’ll probably have moments like that down the road. But
I’ve got you, Junior and Penny to worry about.” She gave Hailey a half-smile
and said, “When you get married, you’ll understand what it’s like. That you
give up parts of yourself to gain so many others. I’m not the same person I was
before I met your father, and I’m grateful for that journey.”

truth in time to avoid the schemes? If not, his fate—and the fate
of all the students—may be sealed.

Dark times are upon the land of
Nereth. Centuries have passed since the rightful heir to the throne was
banished. The people are losing hope in ancient legend, which foretells of one
who will rise up, overthrow the evil king and queen, and restore peace. Like
all others in Nereth, Edlyn has suffered greatly. Orphaned as a child, Edlyn
grew up as the serf of a drunken lord. Now a spirited seventeen-year-old, Edlyn
works to buy her freedom while fighting off the unwanted advances of Sheriff
Hurst. One morning, Edlyn discovers a young man hiding in the stable. He is
fleeing from Sheriff Hurst and inflicted with a sword wound that will surely be
fatal without her help. In a split-second decision, Edlyn conceals the young
man from Sheriff Hurst and begins nursing him back to health. As the young
man’s strength returns, Edlyn learns that his name is Maddock, and she is
stunned to find that he has come from the mysterious land to the north. Maddock
soon comes to Edlyn’s aid, rescuing her from Sheriff Hurst. Suddenly declared
outlaws, both Edlyn and Maddock must escape for their lives to enchanted
Ravenshire Forest and then the desolate mountains beyond. As their adventure
unfolds, Edlyn and Maddock discover that their meeting may have been more than
chance, for their lives prove bound by a fate that neither of them could
possibly have imagined.

Snippet:
Edlyn slowly turned to Maddock. “I
presume this is about you.”
            Maddock
did not respond. Wincing, he reached out with one arm to brace himself against
the wall while keeping his other hand pressed on his abdomen.
            “I
could be imprisoned for helping a fugitive, or killed,” Edlyn went on
frankly, shutting the stable door. “It depends on what you have
done.”
            Maddock
found his voice, “I will not put you in danger.”
            He
made another move to leave but swayed and began to fall. Edlyn lunged forward,
catching Maddock in her arms. Staggering under the weight of his limp body, she
lowered him to the dirt.
            “Help
me leave. I must get away from here,” Maddock begged, attempting to get
up.
            From
the sounds outside, Edlyn knew that the riders were nearly upon them. She also
saw that Maddock’s breathing was growing shallow and the life in his dark eyes
fading. He would not escape those who hunted him. For one moment, Edlyn
hesitated, looking between Maddock and the stable door. Then she spoke upward,
as if to the sky:
            “This
young man might be an outlaw, but may the spirits of Ravenshire Forest curse me
for eternity if I ever help Sheriff Hurst.”

leggy blonde, Sienna, is a pleasant distraction. Until he discovers
she’s after the same killer—and she’s not sharing.

the hunt, the more they cross paths, the harder it is to stay apart.
Together they discover not only clues, but a searing desire, one that
may be their downfall when the killer targets Nathan, and Sienna
risks everything to get him back.

His eyes gleamed with a mission. He stood strong and with purpose. He appeared fearless

Tuesday, June 25th, 2019

 

 

I grew up in Southeast Missouri; home
of the Throwed Rolls, high cotton, and the St. Louis Cardinals. I have a little
family consisting of son, daughter, son-in-law and a little Pi. Other than my
children (and grandchild), my passion is writing. My current project is The
Three Crowns Series. Sweet Tea is the first book in this seven-novel series
which published October 15, 2013.
Besides reading and writing, I enjoy singing. I love music period. Music is in
our family. Whether it be the bluegrass from the Ozarks that my Grandpa Sutton
use to play on his banjo or fiddle, or the smooth, family harmony in which I am
fortunate enough to sing with my Dad and Brother. But you can give me some
kickin’ AC/DC too! I like it all!I work full-time as an Administrative Assistant. Every free moment is dedicated
to my family and my current project, The Three Crowns, a seven-novel paranormal
romance series.

 

It all starts with a Queen and a Plan.

 

The Three Crowns is a New
Adult/Paranormal Romance series. There are seven books to complete the series,
with a novella. This series has your modern day vampires dealing with the Old
World Laws creating a struggle for ultimate power in the Night World.
THE THREE CROWNS SERIES SYNOPSISThe Three Crowns series is about a normal girl whose life is more than what she
will allow herself to imagine. It is the journey of her accepting that
everything is not black and white, and our logic of what we understand does not
mean something does exist. Throughout the story she is protected, loved,
groomed and pushed to her limits to prepare her for what lies ahead of her. She
is tested in all areas of her humanity which will someday bring her to know the
person she is destined to be. The human nature of love is a tangled web of
emotions for she feels the love of two men who are continually being taken away
from her for the sake of their positions in the future as well.

“We
have to get out now!”
I could
feel the intensity of each word being yelled to me from this guy standing over
me. I didn’t know him, yet…I did. My heart was pounding. Fire was all around
us. Smoke was heavy in the air. Where was I? Throughout the large room, the
murk was cut as bodies were thrown through the air, and swords swung faster
than my eyes could follow. I heard loud gnashing and growling all around me,
and the smell of flesh burning filled my nose. There was only one place I could
possibly be. Hell.  
I
looked down and took notice of my torn and blood-drenched clothes. A panic
blanketed me as my thoughts ran rapid. How could this be? Am I going to die?
What am I doing in hell?
“We
have to go now!” The guy exclaimed, grabbing my arm. His eyes gleamed with a
mission. He stood strong and with purpose. He appeared fearless. He looked to
be my age. Wait. What is my age right now? Am I seventeen? I feel like…I’ve
lived a thousand lives, yet haven’t even begun to live. I took a deep breath,
trying to focus on the moment. And if all I had was this moment, then I had to
move or be moved (or die more like it!).
I arose
to my feet, feeling very weak. I looked down to keep from stumbling, and
screamed in horror. A man’s body lay close to my feet. His head lay next to his
body. I felt tears starting to burn in my eyes from complete fear that had
taken hold of me. As I gasped in shock, I noticed a few more feet away from the
first body lay another body crumpled on the floor. Again, his head was next to
his body…and another body! Oh God! Please show me the door out of this
nightmare! I quickly turned away and tried to run. I didn’t get four feet when
I tripped. I gathered myself and tried getting up as quickly as I could. When I
looked to see what I had tripped over, I couldn’t help but scream. It was
another headless body. But this time it was a woman! As I scrambled up, I
looked over to the left of the body, and there was her head about five feet
away. My blood ran cold as chills climbed my spine. Fear had found me as
though it had been seeking me. I could almost hear the haunting echoes of his
laugh ringing in my head as he closed in on taking what little courage remained
in my possession. This fear wanted more than just my courage-he wanted my
soul. My soul he could not have! A new strength consumed me and I pushed on
through the nightmare.

In
a future that holds shifters captive, what will they risk to break
free?
 
Lorelei,
a siren, has spent the last three years searching for the man she
loved after he was abducted in front of her. When the bounty for an

expects a typical bag and tag. Instead, she discovers the target,

Aiden
has no memory of the sultry siren who insists they were once in love.
Rising from the ashes comes with a price—he’s a new person, with
no memories of his former lives. After years of being kept in bird
form to harvest his healing phoenix tears, Aiden is not the man
Lorelei knew.
When
both are taken in by the Magical Creature Underground, reconciliation
seems possible. But Aiden’s captivity comes with a dire
consequence: a deadly poison is working its way toward his heart. The
only known cure is a long shot at best. Can Aiden and Lorelei reclaim

relationship has a chance.
The hybrid baby growing double time
inside Lorelei keeps her from being focused on the mission. As does
Douglas’s ultimatum for their future. It’s throwing her off her game.
That means she’s bound to make a mistake. One that could prove deadly
for them all.

the barren wilderness is to rely on each other. With hearts and lives
on the line, each decision Aiden and Lorelei make brings them one

enough.’
Touch him? Is he as crazy as I am? Okay,
so I’m going to touch him, just for my own peace of mind.
I reach out my hand, fingers extended,
trying to reach him but not move from the wall. A crooked smile appears on his
face. He takes a couple of steps forward, reaches out and touches me.
Lightning heat shoots out from him, races
up my arm, switches direction and dives into my stomach. I snatch my hand back
and grab my belly with both hands. The burning sensation knocks my knees out
from under me. I slump to the floor, still leaning on the wall. The room spins,
and my head swims. Tears mixed with stars blur my vision so there is no focusing.
Not enough air in here; my chest tightens as if the lungs inside are ready to
explode.

Her agenda is ambitious, and it could spell disaster

Friday, June 21st, 2019
E. C. Jackson began her writing career with the full-length play Pajama Party. For three and a half years she published the Confidence in Life newsletter for Alpha Production Ministries, in addition to writing tracts and devotionals. 
 
Teaching a women’s Bible study at her church for eleven years naturally led to her current endeavor of writing inspirational romance novels and teen and young adult fiction. Her mission: spiritual maturity in the body of Christ through fiction.

~ Facebook ~ Amazon ~
  
Most sleepovers are simple. Food, fun, and
pillow fights. But sixteen-year-old Karen Duncan has bigger plans for her
slumber party. Family troubles have changed her over the past year, and she’s
no longer the petty, selfish girl she used to be. Now she’s ready to shake
things up with her friends. The guest list comes as a surprise to some and a
slap in the face to others. This popular girl has invited some not-so-popular
guests. Even more shocking, she’s left out some of the girls she’s hung out
with since middle school.
Diane and Evette are outsiders, nervous about being stuck in a house with the
same girls who tease them at school. Kathy, Lisa, and Joann come to the party
with the confidence of the in-crowd, but they’re masking inner-turmoil that is
bound to surface. Sandy and Angela are usually the voices of reason…usually.
And then there’s Linda, the friend that got away. She may not ever forgive the
girls who abandoned her years ago. Karen hopes to change her mind.

Her agenda is ambitious, and it could spell disaster. But Karen is convinced
God will use this party to spark a new beginning for everyone involved. This
companion book to A Living Hope gives us the inspired story Sadie Cummings
wrote for the girls of Shiatown.

all of the girls you invited coming over? What’s the itinerary for tonight?”
Karen
beamed. “Nothing’s written in concrete, but, I bought a noisy interaction game
for us to play. We’ll use the karaoke machine too. This will be a spontaneous
night for us. My thoughts are to just let things happen.”
“Then

I’d taken your advice. I never should have gone.”
Cal
frowned and Taran paused before adding, “Cal, I killed someone.”
Cal’s
dark eyes widened and he slumped to the bed, staring in disbelief. “How the
hell did that happen?”
