Destria
Waves
Anastasia
Series Book 1
by
Lily Raine
Genre:
YA Paranormal Fantasy
 
 
Anastasia
has always been different, and not just because she knows over
fifteen languages and prefers to be alone. After she was attacked
while visiting family in Russia over seven years ago, Ana has been
able to heal rapidly amongst other things. Unable to accept her own
immortality, despite increasing proof, she goes away to Joya Del Mar
Arts Academy with her two cousins, Jo and Mason. Instead of worrying
about recitals and dance steps, Ana discovers a secret world of
demons, mermaids and angels. Their only connection however, seems to
be an increasing need to find her so that the demons can force Ana to
bring back their master.

 

 

 

After
transforming a bear into a human boy, Ana can no longer hide her
abilities and struggles with the idea that she is not human, although
she does not know what she is. When a mysterious man in a mask
continues to stalk Ana with the intention of getting her to eat a
blue flower, Ana gets the sinking suspicion that the man in the mask
is the same young man who destroyed her life seven years prior. When
Ana discovers a secret lair hidden beneath the waves where the demons
are regrouping, Ana realizes she has a terrible choice to make.
Sacrifice her life and the life of the mermaids who fuel the
underwater power source, or escape and allow the demons free reign to
destroy the human world. But if Ana chooses to accept her
immortality, then the life of her cousins and boyfriend, Daniel, will
forever be compromised.

and her cousin’s lives are finally safe. Unfortunately, when a King
who practices necromancy is determined, more than mermaids are needed

Destria Organization. But when a deadly assassin learns of his plans
to escape, Arkin turns to the only one who can save him.

way of telling friends from enemies apart. As the assassin threatens
to destroy any hope of peace, Anastasia learns just how inhuman her
friends and boyfriend really are.

dagger from the other world, creatures who are neither human nor
animal, and a web comic detailing future events are all Anastasia can
rely on. And when the assassin’s interests turn to her beloved
cousin, Mason, where is the line between who should live and who
should die?

Looking
Back On Forever
by
Kat Alexander
Genre:
Contemporary Romance
 
There
are moments in time that stand out more than others: your first kiss,
a special birthday party, seeing your baby for the first time, an
intimate conversation, a first date, even something as little as
sitting around a dining room table with friends. This is the story of
the moments that stood out after I first laid eyes on Noah Gish. ~
Claire Sawyer
The
city, it used to be a place I loved and missed with an ache in my
gut. It was home. The place where I grew up, where I had fun, where I
had my friends, where life was as good as I knew it to be. Then I was
shipped off to a place that begins the story of how I fell in love,
just to screw everything up. ~ Noah Gish
This
is a contemporary romance about first love and heartbreak.

Literature
is my passion. I like to challenge myself and grow in my writings. I
have many unfinished books and some that have been published under a
different name. Why I chose to do this is because of my writing
growth and the differentiation in genre. I don’t want my future books
to be judged by the inexperience of my past writings. Though I love
those books, they came out of nowhere and it’s apparent in the
writings they were a first draft from someone with no experience.
My
passions include the arts–music, photography, writing, dance,
painting, films, architecture, anything that is creation. There is
not much I don’t like; and if I don’t like it, I at least appreciate
the process that took place to create it. This is something
incorporated in all my books. I’ve known so many talented people, and
truly believe no one is without a talent. Everyone has something
ingrained in them; just naturally gives them the ability to create
new life in the form of art.
In
my spare time, which is basically non-existent between my day job and
writing, I enjoy being out in nature, travelling, spending time with
family, and reading. I read everything, from contemporary to
paranormal, from historical romance to erotica, from history to
science. Learning is something very important to me. I really do
learn something new everyday, my brain storing so much useless to
life-saving information. My brain, the sponge.

Interview with Tina Scott the author of “Coyote’s Grand Adventure”

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

Hi Tina. It is good to have you with us. Tell us, how long have you been writing?

Writing essays and short stories was always my favorite part of school, & as a young girl, I wanted to be a writer/illustrator. It wasn’t until after I took creative writing in college that I remembered my dream and started working toward it as a goal.

What genre do you write and why?

I took Kid’s Lit in college, and therefore started writing children’s picture books first. (more…)
