They could figure out life without controlling hers

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017
Devri Walls is the best-selling author of six YA fantasy novels. She is a theater major with a flare for the dramatic and wishes more than anything for a magic
wand. Devri is from Boise Idaho where she lives with her husband, two kids and the cutest mutt of a dog the world has ever seen. When she’s not writing she
can be found teaching voice lessons, trying to resist the urge to sell her two beautiful children to the circus, and cooking. Because…. food. Mmmmmmm.

“Six years ago, Grey Malteer was attacked by creatures he thought couldn’t possibly
exist. They repeated a word, calling him a name he’d never heard before…Venator. Since then, his life has been a hellhole of secrecy—hiding old pain alongside strange new abilities.
Rune Jenkins has an itch, as she calls it, but it’s more than that. It’s an anger that builds up like the inside of a boiler whenever she’s around anything remotely supernatural. The pressure is growing steadily worse and she can’t understand why. All she knows is—her control is slipping.
By order of an unknown council Grey and Rune are pulled through a portal in the St. Louis arch, landing them in an alternate dimension where creatures of myth and legend exist. A realm that calls them, Venators.
Made up of centuries old fae, vampires, werewolves, elves and succubi the council’s
corrupt nature becomes obvious as they seek to wield the newly returned
Venators as weapons. Wedged in an impossible position, Grey and Rune must
decide their fate—do they go against the council’s wishes and help the
innocents of this unforgiving land, or face the possibility of execution by the
council.”

Snippets:
Ryker’s snoring had grown to a delightful combination of a gravel truck and a freight train. The internal resentment she always felt was growing, and the irritating sound fed
everything that bothered her—like an infection spreading from one cell to the next.
It had been building for years, but tonight it finally hit critical mass.
Rune jerked to her feet, driven by a need to do something, and moved to the window.
She loved her brother but damn it, she hated him too. What could possibly have been so horrible that it was worth sacrificing not only his life, but hers too? Surely he knew that’s
what he’d done. How could he not see that she’d given up everything because of
him?
Her life consisted of two things: chasing after Ryker to make sure he didn’t kill himself, and making sure she pulled the grades and sunk the shots to make mom proud. A Herculean
effort. And futile. 
What about what she wanted? Didn’t that matter to anyone?
A sob escaped and she wrapped her arms around herself. Did she even know what she wanted? There was a time when she’d enjoyed drawing. Creating images of vampires and demons had made the itch stop after her and Ryker’s games ceased. But the pictures had turned
so dark they’d scared her mother, so Rune had let it go.
She also loved to teach and had thought about being a coach. According to her parents, “teachers didn’t make enough money,” so teaching was therefore unacceptable. Because nothing
made you so happy as a house full of expensive items you didn’t need.
Fury and resentment kindled within, directed both at her parents and her drunken fool of a brother. Past history and overflowing stores of anger provided ample amounts of dry
tinder, and her emotions rose violently, flaming to an unbearably hot inferno. She
shook with sobs that her unconscious brother wouldn’t hear. Years of
self-sacrifice ran down her cheeks in crystal streams and then…something
snapped inside.
An odd calm wrapped her in its embrace, followed by a clear knowledge of what would stop the pain. She let out a slow breath and straightened, wiping the tears from her cheeks.
She was done.

 

Screw Ryker. Screw her parents. They could figure out life without controlling hers.

Lord Cedric du Romulus may be a powerful knight, but he’s no human nor does he like masquerading as one. He is a mixed blood demon made by Sorceress Morrighan in her quest to create an army of powerful underlings. Seeking out ever-stronger enemies, he devours them for their power; nothing is safe from his fangs whether they are beasts, demons, or magic wielders. When he finds himself staring at Morrighan’s castle, will he be able to follow through with his life’s ambition and leave behind his lover and wife, Lady Angeline who herself is an heir to a legacy of unknown magic.

Romasanta: Father of Werewolves
The Cedric Series Book 2
by Valerie Willis
Picture
Romasanta finds himself a cursed man and struggles with his internal demon, literally. All his troubles start with a stone and after that he will be losing everything he’s ever loved. Faced with clinging on to what little humanity he has, he will lose it many times before reaching the end of his journey. His life’s tale will take you through time to see how every lore, every moment in history tied in with wolves all come back to him. They call him the Ancient One, others simply refer to him as the Father of Werewolves, but we know him by his name, Romasanta. Many battles will be fought before he gets closer to his goals, but will he be ready to finish what was asked of him at the very beginning of his horrible fate. Will he be able to return the Eye of Gaea and free the love of his life from the laurel tree in the Black Forest?Goodreads – https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25318344-romasanta

The Interview:

How long have you been writing? 

The first major moment for writing was in Fifth grade. We were given a composition book and told to write stories in it, but not I. I wrote a novel, filling it to the back bag with an adventure of a girl lost in Africa. It’s still on my bookshelf, but maybe one of these days I’ll dust it off and try to recapture the story I was telling.

 

Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.

I’m still here in Central Florida, a short drive from my home town Winter Garden where I was sixth generation on the same road. That’s a rare thing in this area anymore, with transplants, snowbirds and tourist. Anyhow, back to how I came to be where I stand today! In high school, I started writing a lot more creative work as a hobby. In fact, Rebirth was the 25,000 handwritten pass around story I had going and friends often encouraged me to continue. I picked it up off and on during college and later years, never taking the idea of writing as a career serious. In 2010, I found myself rethinking everything. Six months pregnant with my first child, the economy wiping out my job and with it Foreclosure on my house and repo’ing of our car, and to top it all off, having the back of my left calf removed due to skin cancer, I started writing again. This time I decided to learn more about the craft, sought out both self-published and traditionally published authors, agents, mentors, anywhere I could gain knowledge of what it would take to write my work at a professional level. By January 2012, I had taken in all the advice, feedback, and knowledge and stepping off the ledge when I self-published Cedric the Demonic Knight. Thus began this unstoppable drive to becoming an author.

c-about-the-book

With Angeline back in Cedric’s arms and the Eye of Gaea in Romasanta’s grip, the next step in their journey begins. Knowing they will be facing the mother of dragons, Delphyne, at the top of Mt. Parnassus, they assemble a group to traverse the barrier which dissolves any technology and renders gunpowder useless. The question weighing on their minds is if two werewolves, the incubus King, and a demonized sorceress is enough to fight their way to see the Oracle?
