Editor’s Note: If Buffy and X-Files had a child, WEAVER would be it.
Book Description: A high-school girl meets the boy of her dreams–except that the dream is of him killing her! From there, she’s drawn into a web of conspiracy and intrigue in which no one and nothing are what they seem–not even those closest to her.
Author’s Inspiration: Two things inspired me to write this book. One was my growing annoyance with the number of love interests in YA fiction who display borderline abusive behavior. I wanted to tell a story where the attractive monsters were still monsters.
Two, one of my close friends has very vivid college dreams. She used to regale us with the stories every morning. So I thought, “What if there was a girl who had the dreams… and then they came true?” Thus was born Weaver.

I’m a long, tall Texan (sorry, Lyle Lovett). I subsist on caffeine (way too much of it), Joss Whedon shows (way too many of them), video games, politics, and other stuff. I use a lot of parentheses in my bios (as you’re finding out). Why should you read my books? Because they’re scary things that also have a sense of humor. Because the characters do fun things like ride werewolves and wield acetylene torches. Because I don’t use this many parentheses in my books (really, I promise).
Two of J.S. Scott’s books are Amazon’s bestselling books of 2013 (#18 & #85) and she is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of erotic romance. She’s an avid reader of all types of books and literature. Writing what she loves to read, J.S. Scott writes both contemporary erotic romance stories and paranormal romance erotics. They almost always feature an Alpha Male and have a happily ever after because she just can’t seem to write them any other way!
Editor’s Note: HER FIRST BILLIONAIRE: A curvy, independent woman finds herself caught between two secret billionaires.
“Definitely glad I read it and can’t wait to start the next book of this series.”
Book Description: When curvy business analyst Laura Michaels takes a leap and fills out an online dating profile, hilarity — and heat — ensues. First, model/firefighter Dylan Stanwyck comes calling, and after a one-night-stand ends with a misunderstanding, Laura goes home confused but resigned. When a second date offer from ski instructor Mike Pine appears the next day, she’s dizzy with anticipation. Mike and Dylan aren’t what they seem, though — secret billionaires with an agenda of their own, and Laura’s top on their “to do” list.
Editor’s Note: PROPHECY OF THE FEMALE WARRIOR is a wonderful start to a new fantasy series.
“The story was well thought out and executed and I thought the characters were very intriguing. ”

A mysterious creature that only Anna can see. Out of her confusion and grief, a Nephilim Warrior finds Anna and seeks to arouse what lies dormant within her. The scorching sexual attraction she and the Warrior feel for one another may be beyond anything either of them can control…

Editor’s Note: IRON BLOOM is an action-packed fantasy adventure with an epic female warrior.
The story is strong the writing was well done.
Book Description: An action-packed fantasy adventure about a mighty warrior torn between the power of the sword and her longing for a peaceful life. First in the Legend of the Iron Flower series starring a powerhouse female epic warrior in the spirit of Achilles or Beowulf.
Fans of David Gemmell, Robert E. Howard, and Robin McKinley will enjoy Iron Bloom.
Author’s Inspiration: This book and series draws a lot of its inspiration from old school epic poetry such as the Iliad and Beowulf, and more works with heroes in the same mold such as Conan and Druss. I thought that type of physical powerhouse hero could use a little more female representation, so here is Rose or as I affectionately call her THE ROSY ONE!

Billy Wong has always been a huge fan of super strong and tough female warriors who don’t need to rely on magic to go toe to toe with the most powerful male warriors and giant monsters. So since he never thought there were enough heroines like that in fantasy fiction, he decided to write his own!
Editor’s Note: The Choosing is an action packed Fantasy thrill ride.
Laszlo paints stunning scenes filled with life and realism to rival the greats.
Book Description: Facing a life of servitude and the sacrifice of family and those he loves, Seth struggles to find the truth in order to save not only himself, but possibly the world of Thurr as well.
Author’s Inspiration: I wanted to write a fantasy novel unlike anything I had ever read. I wanted to see turmoil at every turn and see and feel how the characters managed to navigate through the problems they faced. With even the gods set against the main characters in the book I wanted to understand how they would cope, and what forces would continue to drive them when all hope seemed lost. Beyond that, I wanted to read a fantasy story that wasn’t filled with plot holes and obvious twists. So I wrote the story that I wanted to read and so far tens of thousands of readers have followed the series as well.

I’m the guy next door, but busier. If its a blue collar job I have probably done it, including from carpentry, welding, and even operating heavy equipment. I’ve been around the world while in the military and seen the best and worst of humanity and learned lessons that few do. Raising four, soon to be five children, I’ve learned what is really important in life, and taught “my monkeys” that following their dreams is not something they should wait to do. Writing full time is my dream, and some day I plan to make it my full time career.
Editor’s Note: FLAME MOON is a romance full of action, mystery, some pretty fun supernatural powers, and most importantly, heart.
If you enjoy the romantic fantasy realm with a touch of realism, then this book is for you!
Book Description: Skye Walters wakes up in a mountain town, soaking wet, with a lump on her head, and no memory. She is soon embroiled in a world that twists the possibilities of reality. Although the first in the fantasy romance Flame Moon Series, Flame Moon is dynamic stand-alone read. Plus there’s a dog!
Author’s Inspiration: Mythology is the obvious inspiration for my Flame Moon series. My dad loves mythology, so I come by it naturally. Of course, the fantasy part of my imagination has twisted the mythology for my own purposes, but that’s why I so appreciate writing in the fantasy/paranormal realm. And, at the end of the day, romance is always going be a core in my stories.

I’m lucky enough to live in Minnesota, which gives me an excellent central location for visiting lots of great places in the United States. Family road trips are the best! Seriously. And I get tons of ideas from nooks and crannies all over the U.S.
