Beware
the Violet
The
Eulogimenoi Series Book 1
by
Maria Vermisoglou
Genre:
YA Fantasy 
Discovering
supernatural creatures are real is one thing but learning I have
powers and learning to use them is quite a feat.

 

My
name is Violet Webb. I live in a small town that nearly worships
Halloween but I hate it. I can’t wait until I graduate and get as far
as I can from that silliness.

 

Everything
changed when I followed the white rabbit. I ended up in a Realm full
of vampires, fairies, witches and every creature possible.

 

 

Oh,
Did I mention Jacques?

 

The
hot shapeshifter with the French accent that makes me see rabbits
everywhere?

 

 

Now
what?

 

 

Some
bloody lady of Fate gave me a prophecy to get home. The only problem
is that I must defeat the darkness before it swallows both of our
worlds.

 

 

Can
I go through without making the ultimate sacrifice?

In 2012 she also served as the vice president of Moonwriters, the on-line chapter of American Night Writers Association (ANWA She prefers to write romantic fiction and has ventured into the romantic suspense, and time-travel genres.

Thirty-four year old Vicki Laramie must learn to trust before she can love, but she might die trying.
 

While Vicki’s children grapple with the death of their father — a man whom she’s successfully fabricated as loving, a lie her rebellious teenager recognizes — she must find a way to support her family and find a role model for her boys. 


She never intends to fall for Staff Sergeant Chase, her best friend’s son, who suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). She’d much rather choose a safer man to love, but her children have a voice in the decision she makes. 


With two deaths to deal with, a suitor after her money, a rebellious son, and Sergeant Chase’s repeated attacks, she can only hope to survive the danger she faces. If she doesn’t, her children will be left without either parent.

Snippet:
My heart raced. I hadn’t heard a car or even footsteps on the porch. The visitor had caught me unawares. I answered the door, opening it no more than six inches, the security chain in place.
Kelly stood in the amber glow of the porch light. The purple scarf and gloves he had borrowed in hand. I found myself staring, captured by the honey brown of his eyes.
It required considerable effort to pull my gaze from his smoldering eyes. I cleared my throat in a genteel manner to mask the effort. A foray of butterflies flip-flopped within my stomach. Couldn’t he turn it off for even a minute? I knew he had at the restaurant. There I’d experienced his cool regard from a distance. The animal magnetism seemed a better choice.
I glanced over my shoulder at the glittering tree lights, bidding them deference until later.

The only answer to this dilemma and any future ones would be shooting her dad

Evie lives an idealic lifestyle until she travels to Seattle. Here she believes her dreams can flourish. 
 
But will her love save her when she is involved in a riding misfortune?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 
Snippet:
The only answer to this dilemma and any future ones would be shooting her dad. Evie couldn’t do it any more than she could run from the life around her. Dad had his own ideas of how to manipulate her life and he’d been semi-successful doing it for twenty-three years. In all honesty his manipulating help had proved welcome since high school but not this evening, aside from his invitation to dinner. When the doorbell rang, Dad continued his phone conversation and Mom had her hands full with preparing food, leaving her to play the part of hostess, or at the very least, door-woman.
 
Evie sighed in resignation and answered the door. Her heart jumped to her throat before plummeting at death-defying speed to the pit of her stomach. Justin Lyman, more alluring than he had been in high school, stood on the other side of the screen door. Frozen legs preempted her thought for flight, possibly compounded by the knowledge of him being the fastest runner in town, especially when dodging a linebacker intent on bringing him to the ground. Yes, shooting Dad seemed the easier choice.

Publishing Cycles & Sending Review Copies by Jim Cox The Midwest Book Review

Monday, April 25th, 2011

What’s the best way to view the industry publishing cycles now, Spring or Fall?

This is a very important question, one that goes right to the heart of the problem facing the small press or self-published author when competing for attention with the New York “corporate conglomerates”, (more…)
