Rising
Tide: Dark Innocence
The
Maura DeLuca Trilogy Book 1
by
Claudette Melanson
Genre:
YA Paranormal
 
Rising
Tide will sink its fangs into you, keeping you awake into the wee
hours of the night

 

 

Could
Maura’s life get any worse? …turns out it most certainly can.
Isolated
and sheltered by her lonely mother, Maura’s never been able to make
friends. She seems to drive her classmates away—except for the odd
times they pay enough attention to torture her—but she doesn’t
understand why. Maura considers herself to be a freak of nature, with
her unusually pale skin and an aversion to the sun that renders her
violently nauseous. Her belief is only worsened by the fact that
almost everyone around her keeps their distance.
Even
her own father deserted her before she was born, leaving Maura alone
with her emotionally distant mother, Caelyn. Even though Maura is
desperate for answers about her unknown parent, Caelyn remains
heartbroken and her daughter can’t bring herself to reopen her
mother’s wounds. Or is there a more sinister reason Caelyn refuses
to utter a word about her long-lost love?
When
a cruel prank nearly claims Maura’s life, one of her classmates,
Ron, rushes to her rescue. Darkly handsome & mysteriously
accepting, Ron doesn’t seem to want to stay away, but Maura is
reluctant to get too close, since her mother has announced she’s
moving the two of them to Vancouver…nearly 3,000 miles away from
their hometown of Indiana, Pennsylvania.
If
life wasn’t already challenging enough, Maura begins to experience
bizarre, physical changes her mother seems hell bent on ignoring,
compelling Maura to fear for her own life. Vicious nightmares, blood
cravings, failing health and the heart-shattering loss of Ron—as
well as the discovery of a tangled web of her own mother’s
lies—become obstacles in Maura’s desperate quest for the
unfathomable truth she was never prepared to uncover.

Undertow:
Death’s Twilight
The
Maura DeLuca Trilogy Book 2
 
Maura
finally found the truth she was always seeking…or has she?

 

After
being left in the dark for all of her life, Maura’s father,
Maxwell, has finally returned to reveal sinister family secrets Maura
could never have dreamed possible—including his revelation that she
is one of The Born. But his daughter soon discovers both he and her
mother are keeping pieces of her reality hidden, still. As Maura
struggles to unravel the mysteries surrounding her new existence and
discover every piece of the cryptic puzzle, life appears intent on
casting stumbling blocks across her path with every step forward.

 

Tragedy
seems to stalk Maura, and those around her, as she stumbles along,
altering the young changeling’s family, just when they have all
come back together. The changes left in its wake could be for the
better, or may threaten their existence, entirely.

 

 

With
the arrival of Christmas comes the opportunity for Maura to draw
close to everyone she loves—and finally reunite with Ron, the man
she loves. But permanence has always eluded her, and in her current
state of flux this pattern endures, as fate seems intent on snapping
the threads that bind her to those she holds most dear. Maxwell’s
good intentions pave a road for Maura, littered with misery, while
her mother, Caelyn’s, desire to shield her family from pain may
tear her away from them, altogether. The perfect happiness in the
young vampire’s grasp is so easily swept away and dragged under,
out of reach. Can Maura erupt from the darkness and confusion to
break the surface and find the life she’s always dreamed of?

 

In
the midst of chaos, assistance materializes in the form of another of
her kind—ephemerally beautiful, yet explosively volatile, this new
vampire may prove capable of unlocking the puzzle-box Maxwell seems
intent on securing from her sight. Maura will discover the darkest
parts of herself in her quest to understand the being she is destined
to become. Her newfound friend has some shady intentions of his
own—such as thwarting the love that has grown between Maura and
Ron. Following in the wake of the impulsive vampire’s misguided
instruction may further pull a naive Maura down into the depths of
ultimate despair, heartbreak…and even destruction.

Riptide:
Betrayal of Blood
The
Maura DeLuca Trilogy Book 3
 
Maura
has never felt so alone in her life…nor has her existence ever been
so overshadowed by peril…

 

 

 

Not
only do both her parents—her distant but loving mother and
recently- returned father—remain absent from her life, but due to
the hideous error in judgement executed in collusion with her best
friend, Valdamir, and adoptive sister, Susie, Maura has been cut off
from the pair’s friendship and support, forbidden by both her
father and the fallout from the dire outcome to see either of them.
The heartbreak she suffers, brought on by the weight of these
estrangements, is only intensified by the continued mysterious
absence of her supernaturally-destined mate, Ron…whose
disappearance delivers grave consequences Maura would have never
dreamed possible…

 

 
Despised
by her vampire cousin, Aldiva, for reasons Maura cannot yet
comprehend, the young changeling will be forced to guard her back
with every step, as she comes to realize this member of her vampire
family would love nothing more than to bring about her demise.
Aldiva’s wrath calls forth other members from both Vancouver
covens, forcing them to rush to Maura’s aid—even though her
father, their king, has expressly forbidden the other vampires to
initiate contact with his daughter. Will her extended family on
Vancouver Island obey, abandoning Maura to her doom, or will they
instead rebel against Maxwell’s wishes in order to save her
life?
 
In
addition to the menace personified in her unsolicited enemy, the
unlikely vampire princess will find herself drowning as she is pulled
down into the depths of a far more devastating crisis…one which may
condemn her to a fate she considers much more undesirable than death.
But in order to tear herself free from the deadly pull which is
drawing her under, Maura must enlist the help of her preternatural
family, exposing her newfound friends to a danger none of them have
ever had the misfortune to face before. Can she be saved or will the
riptide drag Maura under…along with those she loves the most…

Praise
for Riptide:

 

“I will
scream it from the rooftops how much I love this series.”

 

“I
can only say that Riptide is one of the best modern vampire stories I
have ever read, and I read them all from Stephen King to Ann Rice to
Stephenie Meyer.”

 

“Riptide
was action packed and the fight scenes were well written but more
than that it was the story of family and love, of taking
responsibility, and dealing with hate when all sane avenues
fail.”
“The
lore is superb, as is the writing. I can’t wait to catch up with
Maura again!”

by
Cloud S. Riser
Genre:
YA Paranormal
 
–My
name is Anila. Up until a few days ago, I thought I was just like
every other teenage girl. Seriously, life was awesome. I was popular,
had great grades, and was on my way to getting a scholarship to one
of the top universities in the state. Then my boyfriend decided to go
crazy on me, and I end up in a car with some other guy who claims
magic is real. Crazy, is what I say. Pretty sure he’s out of his
mind. I–

 

 


–Hold
on a minute, Nila is not giving me a fair chance. The name is Bailey,
and I’m not crazy. I’m a Muse. And so is she. That’s why her
boyfriend got uber possessive on her. Muses inspire the best in
others, and without control over their magic, a Muse can be pretty
addictive to hang around.

 

 

Which
is why I’m here, to teach Nila how to control that magic so she
doesn’t cause any more problems with the every day humans. See–

 

 

–I
hate how he says every day humans like I’m not one of them. Oh, and
get this, I apparently can’t touch him, even just a tiny bit, because
we might create magical sparks…or something?–

 

 

–Look
at all the things she doesn’t know about being a Muse. The sparks
help us find our soul mate. Do I need to explain why I don’t need her
touching me right now? We just met. Besides, it’s common courtesy.
Keep your hands to yourself.

Rise of the Sea Witch

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017
Rise of the Sea Witch
by Stacey Rourke
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy
Details
of the sea witch’s banishment have been exaggerated. The body count
that preempted it was not. Once an illustrious princess, her hands
and tentacles were stained with the blood of thousands. No one could
comprehend how the hooks of madness dragged her down from her life of
privilege.
 

 

Born
Princess Vanessa of Atlantica, the ambitious young royal was one of
two children born to the great King Poseidon. She and her brother,
Triton, were groomed from birth to rule. Yet only one would ascend
that coveted throne. While carefree Triton flits through his training
with a cavalier demeanor and beguiling charm, Vanessa’s hunger for
her father’s acceptance drives her to push herself to the limits of
magic, and combat to become a leader worthy of her people. 


 

When
war against the humans ravages their once regal kingdom, political
sides are chosen. Factions from the seven seas challenge the existing
leadership, pitting Vanessa against her brother in a vicious battle
for the crown. Traitors are exposed, dark family secrets revealed,
and a once strong sibling bond is strained to its breaking
point.


 

Only
when the ink black waters from the ultimate betrayal rescind, will
the truth be known of how the villainous sea witch rose with one name
on her vengeful lips–Triton.

In the Dying Light… The Secret keeper series, book two by Angela Carling

Winter Merrill knew it would be difficult when she took on an ancient curse to save her family, but couldn’t have imagined the isolated existence she would inherit.

When her long-time boyfriend’s demanding college schedule competes with her needs, Winter is left completely alone to fight the dark secrets she bares. At her breaking point a stranger enters Winter’s life, one who understands how she feels and more importantly knows how to eliminate the curse.
Will his friendship be a new beginning for Winter or will it prove to be her demise?

Biography of Angela Carling

Angela Carling was raised in Palm Springs California, but lives Arizona with her husband, three kids and five felines. After years of denial she finally admitted that she is a hopeless romantic which led her to write her first Young Adult book Unbreakable Love. Since then she’s published three more books, Shackled, Becoming Bryn and The Secret Keeper. Shackled won the silver IPGA award in 2012 and has been optioned as a screenplay. She always eats the frosting off her cake and leaves the rest, and can be caught singing in public bathrooms just for the acoustics. When she’s not writing YA novels, she’s mentoring teen writers, making pizza with her family or dreaming of taking a nap, not necessarily in that order.

In The Dying Light… James Bond or a book???

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

1.Angela, tell us where you were born

1109_Carling_Headshots_034

I was born and raised a California girl and have a love affair with the sun to prove it

2.What is the most difficult thing about being an author?

There is never enough time to keep up writing and marketing! Anyone have a way to stop time

3.Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

I want to say my critic group because they are amazing, but it’s probably my husband who pushes me to keep going even when it seems impossible.

4.Who or What inspired you to write this book?

This book is the second book in The Secret Keeper series so the question is more like what inspired the series. That would have to be the power of human regret. We make mistakes all the time, but truthfully most of us would love to stop and do everything perfectly. A secret keeper allows us that indulgence, but comes with a price. I guess you could say this book is inspired by human weakness (more…)

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

Cynthia Jane Savage Anaya talks about the Anthology  “Strange and Lovely: Ten Paranormal Tales of Thrills and Romance.”

Cynthia how did you came up with the idea for an anthology?

Rebecca Gage was the author involved in planning this anthology and specifically seeking out the other nine authors involved. She wanted to create a fun, clean, paranormal book filled with short stories for teens and up to read and enjoy.

Great idea. How did you find all the authors for it?

Rebecca and I met at an ANWA conference last February and hit it off immediately. When she contacted me a few months ago about her project idea she asked for author suggestions. I thought (more…)

Mary, how long have you been writing?

10402394_10202007492925029_8447286139300621626_n

I have been writing for almost 3 years. My first book was published in May of 2012. Since then I have published twenty-five books. Of that twenty-five books, two are young adult and eight are children’s books.

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

I was born in St. Francisville, LA, raised in Clinton,LA and currently reside in Morgan City, LA.

How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?

Once I take the outline for my book and begin writing, I truly have no idea which direction the book will go. I let the words flow onto the paper, and once I am about about halfway done, the genre comes to me.

Wow!  Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

When I did decide to finally start writing, I remembered how (more…)

Author Braden Bell an Interview

Saturday, March 15th, 2014

Braden, what is your typical day like?

I wake up at 5:45 so that the kids and I can leave at 6:30 in order to be at school by 7:30. I’m a teacher at a private school, and my children are fortunate to attend–but we live some distance away. After school, I usually have play rehearsals or voice lessons until the evening, so I generally get home around 6:00 or 7:00. Then we have supper, and I write until bedtime. Then I try to always help get the kids to bed, and then write until I go to sleep–which is almost always far too late!

Wow that is a lot. Do you write with music or not? (more…)
