The
Dream Defenders
by
Neal DenHartog
Genre:
YA Fantasy 
 

A
vivid, dangerous dream world. Real-life consequences. Better ready
your defense.

When
fourteen-year-old Nolan Erling wakes up with a headache for the
fourth straight day, he suspects the likely culprit to be any number
of things—from his annoying baby brother, to vehicular crashes with
his elderly neighbor, or even his questionable late-night food
choices—not his dreams.

 

 

Aeryn
Sandman knows the true cause, though. She is a junior agent with the
DREAM Institute, a secret organization tasked with protecting the
world’s population while they sleep, and she’s on her first
assignment.

 

 

Her
mission: infiltrate Nolan’s life—and his dreams—and keep him
safe, all while persuading him to join their protective force.

 

 

But
recruitment missions are no walk in the park, and Aeryn’s goes
horribly wrong when Nolan’s powers unwittingly unleash two dream
creatures locked away in a restricted area of the dream world. While
Aeryn and Nolan search for ways to contain the escaped beings, they
uncover a much greater conspiracy.

 

 

For
these dreams can kill, and someone is orchestrating their actions in
the dream world. If Aeryn and Nolan can’t figure out who is behind
it, no dreamer will be safe, and neither will the organization that
defends them.

 

Discover
a book with a fresh voice, genuinely humorous characters, and a
compelling, original storyline. The Dream Defenders will
appeal to readers of all ages.

Maximum
Exposure Book 3
by
Kendall Talbot
Genre:
Romantic Suspense, Adventure
 
For
twenty years, they moved from town to town every few months. They
paid in cash. They kept only what they could carry. But 26-year-old
Charlene Bailey and her father were a family, complete and happy.
Until a woman stabbed him to death in a New Orleans café, right in
front of Charlene’s eyes, screaming in a language she didn’t
understand. Now the police are claiming that her whole life is a lie.
To find out who she is, she’ll have to find out what they were
running from. And to discover that, she’ll have to find someone she
can trust.
As a charter boat
captain out of Key West, Marshall Crow has seen his share of reckless
tourists. But the fierce young woman asking for passage to Cuba isn’t
one of them. He never thought he’d put the skills he learned in the
Navy to work smuggling a stranger, but he’s drawn to her the same
way she’s drawn to the truth. And through the dark waters of the
Florida straits and the narrow streets of Havana, the danger that
awaits them is far too vicious to face alone.

Exposure Book 2
 
A
love frozen in time . . .

 

 

Holly
knew the romantic helicopter ride up to the remote peak of Whisky
Mountain was a bad idea. But she never expected it to snatch her
fiancé from her—or destroy her life. A few fiery seconds turn a
postcard-perfect morning in the Canadian Rockies into a snowy hell,
thirteen thousand feet above sea level. And in the midst of grief and
agony, Holly catches sight of a scene in the ice that will haunt her
until she can return and discover the truth.

 

 

Oliver
Nelson could see the stranger had a mystery inside her. The scars on
her face, the pain in her eyes, the insistence that he teach her
completely alone—no one 
needs to
learn rock climbing, or so he thought. But the more he gets to know
her, the more he admires her drive, her ingenuity, and that little
edge of recklessness. If she can trust him with her story, he’s
ready to follow her wherever her heart takes her. 

 

 

But
nature’s deadly beauty isn’t the only danger waiting for them on
Whisky Mountain. To survive, Oliver and Holly will have to move
fast—and think faster . . .

In
a place where a city can be lost hundreds of years . . . they can
still find each other.

 

 

 

Lily
saw the temple of Agulinta on television: a vast stone structure
swallowed by the Yucatan jungle, rediscovered only now after hundreds
of years. So why did the papers she found after her father’s death
show the same mysterious carvings that puzzled archaeologists at
Agulinta? Her search for answers pulls her to Mexico’s southern
border, where the journey to the lost temple will take her through
jungle and mountain, over waters home to crocodiles and drug runners,
and into uncomfortably close quarters with a man whose need to wander
has become a way of life . . .

 

 

Australian
Carter Logan’s work as a nature photographer has given him the
excuse he needs to roam wherever his restless feet take him. But in
all the time he’s traveled, he’s never been drawn to anyone the
way he is to this determined, cagey young American. Lily’s
perseverance through dirt, sweat, and danger to the heart of the
ancient temple fires through him. But when the two of them are left
alone and stranded in a vicious wilderness, their connection might
prove the difference between life and death . . . if the secrets of
the past don’t come between them first.

The
Witchkin Murders
Magicfall
Book 1
by
Diana Pharaoh Francis
Genre:
Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance 
 
Four
years ago, my world—the world—exploded with wild magic. The
cherry on top of that crap cake? The supernatural world declared war
on humans, and my life went straight to hell.
I
used to be a detective, and a damned good one. Then Magicfall
happened, and I changed along with the world. I’m witchkin
now—something more than human or not quite human, depending on your
perspective. To survive, I’ve become a scavenger, searching
abandoned houses and stores for the everyday luxuries in short
supply—tampons and peanut butter. Oh, how the mighty have fallen,
but anything’s better than risking my secret.
Except,
old habits die hard. When I discover a murder scene screaming with
signs of black magic ritual, I know my days of hiding are over. Any
chance I had of escaping my past with my secret intact is gone.
Solving the witchkin murders is going to be the hardest case of my
life, and not just because every second will torture me with
reminders of how much I miss my old life and my partner, who hates my
guts for abandoning the department.
But
it’s time to suck it up, because if I screw this up, Portland will
be wiped out, and I’m not going to let that happen. Hold on to your
butts, Portland. Justice is coming, and I don’t take prisoners.

While
writing The New World trilogy proved to be one of the most exciting
challenges of my life, if anyone had told me six years ago I’d be
writing science fiction action-adventure novels, I would have
declared them bonkers! For most of my life, I had been an engineering
and programming nerd whose main reading materials included technical
scientific articles and books with little time to read novels of any
sort of fiction.
The
few dreams I experienced during my lengthy career as a Sr. Software
Development Manager at IBM mostly focused on conjuring solutions to
tough technical issues at work. Never did sleep delve into imagining
some fictional adventure. But that all changed after I retired from
IBM in March of 2007 at age 53 with 30 rewarding years of service.
The extra time on my hands provided plenty of hours to devote to more
creative endeavors.
My
initial attempt at writing capitalized on my 30 years of investing in
all sorts of financial assets. I wanted to share my knowledge with
our children to aid their financial planning. After completing more
than 400 pages of the manuscript, I joined a writers’ group. The
members liked the technical content but advised me to liven it up to
make in more attractive for my younger target audience of high school
and collage graduates getting a start on life. I came up with an
fictional world and a couple of quirky characters to weave into my
investing lessons.
The
members loved the improvements, but an unexpected problem bared
itself: my brain refused to churn out nightly ideas about
investments. Instead, my dreams gushed with captivating characters
and an intriguing new world with plenty of vicious beasts lurking in
the shadows of my mind. I had no choice but to follow the fate which
unfolded night after night, providing oodles of exciting material to
more than fulfill any writing desires. I provided my financial
manuscript to my daughters, and from that exhilarating change of
direction in 2014, I’ve been creating a fascinating new world at the
turn of the next century!
I
began writing my first novel, The New World: A Step
Backward
 in June of 2014 and published it on June 28, 2015.
A little over a year later, on October 1, 2016, I published Book 2 of
the series, The New World: Blue Moon Generation. After a
bit of a delay due to the challenges of a serious family illness, I
completed the final novel of the Trilogy, The New World:
Crimson Winter
 and published it on November 6, 2018.

Head
vet at the Forever Friends animal rescue shelter, Gabriel Moretti is
known as the Dog Whisperer because of his gift for soothing
rambunctious patients. But it’s the two-legged species that has
him, and his libido, working overtime. Marla Popov single-handedly
saved the shelter from financial ruin. But the bossy trust funder is
even more irritating than her snooty Standard Poodle. You’d think
keeping his attraction on a short leash would be a no-brainer for
Gabe. Unfortunately, Marla is also smart, beautiful, and intriguing .
. .
Most of her life,
people have been eager to tell Marla just what she wants to hear. So
now that she’s nearing forty, she doesn’t expect to be
refused—especially by a sexy younger man like Gabe. She also
doesn’t expect it to sting so much. But when she discovers a scheme
involving illegal dog fights, she gets a chance to show what she’s
truly made of. And as she and Gabe team up to fight it, they discover
a surprising respect for each other—and passion that might just
grow into love. . .

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.”

safe to say my love life stinks. As if getting dumped for another guy
by my long-term boyfriend isn’t enough, my hopes at finding a
boyfriend get crushed with a string of disastrous dates.

 

 

 

But
then I meet the strange bus boy who has been staring at me for the

Daniel. Smart, charming, successful, and well-dressed. He’s the
perfect man, the kind of guy I should want. Even my family is

Somehow, I went from
the girl with a catastrophic love life to a woman with one too many
options.

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

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

I don’t care if he’s the Prime Minister, that racket must stop

Wednesday, June 19th, 2019

 

Marni Graff writes two award-winning mystery series: The Nora Tierney English Mysteries and The Trudy Genova Manhattan Mysteries. She teaches writing workshops and mentors the Writers Read program, and is Managing Editor of Bridle Path Press. 
Graff also writes the crime review blog Auntie M Writes, www.auntiemwrites.com.

Nurse Trudy Genova is making plans to
take her relationship to NYPD detective Ned O’Malley to the next level, when
she lands a gig as medical consultant on a film shoot at the famed Dakota
apartment building in Manhattan, which John Lennon once called home. Then star
Monica Kiley goes missing, a cast member turns up dead, and it appears Trudy
might be next. Meanwhile Ned tackles a mysterious murder case in which the
victim is burned beyond recognition. When his investigations lead him back to
the Dakota, Trudy finds herself wondering: how can she fall in love if she
can’t even survive?
Readers of Death Unscripted, the first
book in the Trudy Genova Manhattan Mystery series, will find the same pleasures
in this sequel: fast pacing, engaging characters, twists and turns on the way
to a satisfying close. From the award-winning author of The Nora Tierney
English Mysteries, this second series is a winner. Once again M.K. Graff
reveals her talents in crafting this delightful mix of amateur sleuth and
police procedural.
Part procedural, part cozy, Death at
the Dakota is a well-crafted and highly entertaining mystery
.- Bruce Robert
Coffin, #1 bestselling author of the Detective Byron mysteries.  
I fell in love — not only with
co-protagonists, Trudy and Ned, the richly detailed and historic setting of The
Dakota, and the unique cast of characters, but with the unusual plot of Death
at the Dakota.

Winston Garage Sale Mysteries

My Review

I read another of The Trudy Genova Manhattan Mysteries, some time ago and enjoyed her feisty kind of approach to murder. For a moment I thought this was the same, but within the first page I realized, to my surprise, that I had stumbled on another of her series.

Trudy is a nurse that has the best job ever. She corrects scripts for movies or TV series and makes sure the medical details are accurate and precise. In this book we find her as the nurse in charge of the main actress Monica. She is with child, but not many people on the set know about it. Trudy’s job is help her stay out of stress, which makes Trudy’s job a challenge as Monica’s life may be in danger.

I enjoyed that she remains with Ned, her Police boyfriend and things are progressing between them. The story line if well done and progresses without a flaw. Characters are well rounded and the story is clean enough. I would say PG13.
I would recommend it, to murder mystery and movie lovers in general.

Snippet:
Brrerrdidididididitt.
Brrerrdidididididdiitt. The noise of a jackhammer filled the spacious room.
“CUT!” a voice yelled.
Actress Monica Kelly let the curtain
drop along with her Jinx persona and crossed her arms in frustration.
I caught my best friend Meg Pitman’s
eye and we held our breath, waiting for an outburst from the director.
Phin Hill-Yorke stomped out from
behind the camera and over to the window, gangly arms and legs flying, frizzy
short hair stuck up around her head as though she’d had a recent encounter with
an electrical socket. “Meg!”
Poor Meg, off to the rescue.
My name is Trudy Genova, RN, and I’m
fortunate to have one of the best jobs a nurse could have. I’m a medical
consultant to one of New York City’s major television studios, the Passion
Broadcasting Junction. PBJ had decided to branch out into television films,
adding to their roster of talk, news programs, and Internet soap operas.
Meg had her first position as
Production Assistant on this movie, and the British director on loan from the
BBC had given her a battering at times all through the shoot. Not that the
rowdy woman singled out Meg. Phin embodied an equal opportunity harasser in a
mostly good-natured sort of way.
“Get your arse down there and sort
those wankers out. They were supposed to hold off on that pavement ’til next
week. Bring that form from the chancellor’s office with you.” Phin yelled above
the noise that continued, patting her pockets for a cigarette. “Please,” she
added as an afterthought.
Meg hurried off with a wave in my
direction, silky blonde hair flying.
“It’s the mayor’s office here, Phin.”
China Barrett corrected Phin from her perch next to me, out of camera range.
Phin’s assistant and I exchanged tiny smiles, co-conspirators for the past six
weeks in the filming of this television movie close to wrapping.
“I don’t care if he’s the Prime
Minister, that racket must stop.” Phin consulted her watch. “Loo breaks all
around while we sort this out, boys and girls.”

Snippet:
Harmonia grinned at them. “All of these herbs can
heal the sick or injured, either on their own or as part of a mixture. Many are
common plants while others are harder to find. Some, if handled incorrectly,
can be fatal.” She motioned for the students to follow her. “To prevent any
unnecessary accidents, I’ll teach you how to identify the deadliest herbs
today.”
Denya’s concern changed to curiosity. She knew which
dangerous plants to avoid back home in Burrowville, but she hadn’t realized
some of them could heal.
In the rear of the greenhouse, Harmonia stopped at a
dirt-covered table bearing three different plants. She pulled iron tongs from
her pouch and clasped a long blade of grass from the first plant. “The
goldenslasher grows wild in the desert. Notice it’s several times thicker than
your typical grass and bulges in the center. It’s also sharp enough to slice
through flesh.”

 

Pulling trimmers from her pouch, she cut off a tip
about the size of Denya’s thumb. She switched the cutters for pinchers and
pulled a golden fiber from the center of the freshly cut blade. “Tea made from
this strand will settle the most nauseated stomach.”

There’s a lot of mystery and a murder that’s been unsolved for decades

Monday, June 3rd, 2019
An avid gardener, artist, musician and writer, Emily-Jane Hills Orford has fond memories and lots of stories that evolved from a childhood growing up in a haunted Victorian mansion. Told she had a ‘vivid imagination’, the author used this talent to create stories in her head to pass tedious hours while sick, waiting in a doctor’s office, listening to a teacher drone on about something she already knew, or enduring the long, stuffy family car rides. The author lived her stories in her head, allowing her imagination to lead her into a different world, one of her own making. 

As the author grew up, these stories, imaginings and fantasies took to the written form and, over the years, she developed a reputation for telling a good story. Emily-Jane can now boast that she is an award-winning author of several books, including Mrs. Murray’s Ghost (Telltale Publishing 2018), Queen Mary’s Daughter (Clean Reads 2018), Gerlinda (CFA 2016) which received an Honorable Mention in the 2016 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards, To Be a Duke (CFA 2014) which was named Finalist and Silver Medalist in the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards and received an Honorable Mention in the 2015 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards and several other books. A retired teacher of music and creative writing, she writes about the extra-ordinary in life and the fantasies of dreams combined with memories.

There is a hidden treasure in the
grand old mansion on Piccadilly Street, in a place called London, but not the
real London of English fame. There’s also a lot of mystery and a murder that’s
been unsolved for decades. But it’s the treasure that captures Mary’s interest.
 
Mary lives in this house along with her family, her Brownie friends and a
ghost. When the ghost reveals her secret about the hidden treasure, there’s no
stopping Mary, her Brownie friends, or her enemies to searching for this
treasure. 
 
Why the intrigue? Apparently there’s a little bit of magic connected
with this treasure. And so the adventure begins. 
 
Who will find the treasure
first?
 
 
 

 


  
~ Universal Amazon Link ~ 
  
My Review:

The Piccadilly Street Series, book two, Mrs. Murray’s Hiding Treasure by Emily Jane Hill Orford is a magical and great read for elementary school children. It is clean, easy to read and entertaining. The characters are well done, interesting and a good mix for children’s books. They consist of: a witch, Penelope; the savior and main character, Mary; her best friend and guardian, Rosie; the brownies; and the Ghost, Mrs. Murray.

In the first book, Mary gets sick due to an enchantment from Penelope and almost dies. While her body fights the sickness, her spirit appears in a magic world. When Mary finally comes back, the witch, her assistant Elizabeth, and a brownie trapped there a century,came back with her. In her quest to find Mrs. Murray’s treasure the witch makes life impossible for Mary and her friend Rosie. The brownies and Mrs. Murray are kept on their toes trying to save the girls.

This is a well done, great read for the whole family and a good addition to anyone’s library.

Snippet:
Once the house
settled down for the night, Mrs. Murray, the resident ghost, was out on her
nocturnal prowl. Satisfied that the house was safe and secure for the night,
after all the musical vibrations that shook the rafters earlier, she took her
place at the end of Mary’s bed and waited patiently for the girl to stir from
her sleep and take note of her presence.
            “What?”
Mary groaned, pulling her eyes open as she emerged from a deep sleep. “What
now?”
            “We
need to talk.” The wispy figure of what was once a very distinguished looking
lady, sat down at the end of Mary’s bed and looked the girl firmly in the eye.
            “Now?”
Mary groaned. “It’s the middle of the night. What time is it?”
            “What
difference does it make? Sit up and let’s talk.” The ghost was not going to
take ‘no’ for an answer. And, it would appear, feigning sleep would not send
her away either. So, Mary pushed herself into a sitting position and rubbed her
eyes again, hoping to eradicate the sleep that threatened to make them close.
            “Where
are the others? Where’s Brunny?” she asked.
            “Asleep
in their little space. And it’s not a natural sleep either. They’re all in the
deepest of sleeps, all except Elizabeth, who slipped out of the house a few
hours ago, just after the lights went out and your family snuggled in for the
night.” Mrs. Murray slid a little closer to Mary. “She’s still not right, that
Elizabeth. She’s good and well shackled by that witch.”

Adrienne Quintana is
the author of Eruption as well as several children’s books. When she isn’t
writing, Adrienne enjoys running, hiking, and matchmaking (Are you single? She
probably knows someone perfect for you.) 
 
She lives in Arizona with her husband
and four children, who give her love, support, and plenty of good material for
Instagram.  
 
 
 
 
 
 

  1. Adrienne, if you had 3 wishes, what would they be?

 

I’d wish that chocolate gave you abs, clothes folded themselves, and that people had furry ears and tails so you could read their emotions.

 

  1. Given unlimited resources, what would be your ideal writing environment?

 

A terrace on the Amalfi Coast with a hot Italian guy fanning me and feeding me grapes.

 

  1. Where do you actually write?

 

Usually the kitchen. Often in yoga pants. Always with a dog on my lap.

 

  1. How long does it normally take you to write a novel?

 

It’s getting progressively longer.  I wrote my first novel in two months, my second in about a year, and this one has been three years in the making.  With my family and other exciting publishing projects, I have limited time.  But writing is a passion, and I do it whenever I have a spare second.

 

  1. What are your inspirations?

 

Easy. My family always lifts and inspires me.

 

 

  1. How did you come to write this particular book or series?

 

The idea for this book has been in the back of my mind for years. I actually tried to convince my sister to write it.  She worked for Anasazi, a wilderness therapy program in Arizona, as a young adult and had some incredible experiences there.  Yvette has six children and is getting ready to publish her third children’s picture book. I think it was the fourth time I mentioned that she should write this book when she told me I should write it myself.  That was all the permission I needed.

 

High Sierra is a fictional wilderness therapy program loosely based on the Anasazi program, but the hiking takes place in Yosemite.  The characters hike the exact trails that my family traveled on our adventure in 2015 when my husband tore two tendons in his ankle and then insisted on hiking another 20 miles. I’ve poured a lot of myself and my personal struggles and experiences into this book.

 

  1. What was the hardest part of writing your book, and how did you overcome it?

 

Finding time is a huge obstacle for me to overcome as a writer.  Writing a novel over a long period of time presents challenges.  When you write every day, it’s easy to pick up where you left off.  When you’re working on a project for months and years, it’s easy to forget details. I had to do a lot of re-reading to refresh my memory before moving forward.

   Excerpt: 

Ana enjoyed the calmness of the afternoon, and listened to his soothing, hypnotic voice for a while. Thoughts of a prior discussion on the vampire ceremony entered her mind, and she felt a need to understand the process better.

“What exactly do you mean bytasteyour blood?” She suddenly straightened and turned her head to stare at him.

For almost an hour Andree explained the details of the traditional vampire wedding ceremony.

“There will be two ceremonial daggers, sharp, with our names engraved on them. You will use the one—”

“Use? Are you telling me that I have to cut you in a room—an underground room—in the presence of hundreds of vampires? Are you for real? Are you—?”

Andree laughed and held her closer to him.

She could appreciate his gesture, but it didn’t help her feel better. It was bad enough she stood in that room the other night, under the scrutinizing glares. Adding blood to the equation wasn’t something to look forward to.

“You will cut your initial in the palm of my hand, here,” he explained, indicating a spot on his palm, right under his thumb. “I will do the same, and you will not feel a thing. Daniel will be right there with his spray. It will be quick and painless.”

“But what about the blood? I mean—”

“Nobody will attack you or me, guaranteed. It is part of the ceremony.”

“I’m not sure about it. You guys in general go crazy when you see or smell blood.”

“Ana, tasting my blood is a symbol. I am giving you my life, just as you will give me yours. It is what will bind us for eternity.” He lifted her hand to his lips and kissed her palm, sending tingles, as if a million tiny ants marched through her veins. “As I already told you, the ceremony is short, but every word we say, every gesture, symbolizes something.”

“Can’t we do all that without the blood part?” With the tingles melted away, and a nervous energy replacing them, she dared to gaze at him.

“We are vampires, Ana. Blood is life.”
