Fateful (Book #1 in the Fateful Series) : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: Does Mr. Darcy really exist nowadays? Maybe, but he might not be all that you dreamed of.

Do yourself a favor and read this book and the next one and the third one, you will not be sorry!


Book Description: Danielle, a huge fan of Jane Austen, hopes to find her own Mr. Darcy when she leaves Colorado to attend art school in London. Soon after arriving, she meets Ethan Deveroux. By day, he seems like the fantasy hero she seeks. But by night, the powerful magic of an ancient curse is revealed, and instead of being the Mr. Darcy she’d imagined finding, Ethan is a vampire.

Those who enjoy Stephanie Meyer, Lynn Kurland, or Lynsay Sand will enjoy FATEFUL.  

Author’s Inspiration:  The story of The Frog Prince, my love of Jane Austen, as well as my fascination with vampires, all came together to inspire this book.

Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Leighton Meester

I’ve always had an interest in fairies, mermaids, vampires, and, in truth, just about any type of fantasy or myth. When stories of these beings continued to entertain my thoughts, to the point of almost haunting me, I decided it was time to start writing them down. FATEFUL was my first finished work. I’ve published 5 books, and 1 cookbook. I have several other books in the plans. All of them will have elements of fantasy in them, along with a romantic twist.

Favorite Food: I love Crème Brule topped with lots of fresh berries.

 

Favorite Place to Write: I write in my office surrounded by artwork of fairies, much of which I painted myself
Favorite Music: I love listening to bands like Black Lab and Imagine Dragons. 

 

Favorite TV show: At the moment, my favorite TV show is Vampire Diaries.

The Symbolon (The Sibylline Trilogy) : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: THE SYMBOLON is the passionate second installment of addictive The Sibylline Trilogy from Delia Colvin.

I’m in love with the storyline, the characters, the history, basically everything!


Book Description: In this follow up to the Sybylline Oracle, Alex has dreamt of a life with his beloved, Valeria. Alas, sinister forces are discovered when they ask the council of immortals for permission to marry. Terrifying threats soon abound that include a devastating separation that neither may survive!

Those who enjoy Dan Brown, Stephanie Meyer, and Nicolas Sparks will enjoy THE SYMBOLON.  

Author’s Inspiration:  Touring the Sistine Chapel I became intrigued with the presence of the Delphic Sibyl and Oracles. Later I thought it might be interesting to write about an extraordinary love that defied death. Years later, in an instant that story became The Sibylline Trilogy.

Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Emmy Rossum as Valeria/Cassandra and Chris Pine as Alex Morgan

From the Book: She pulled his left hand into hers, in a move that was now familiar to him, and began tracing the triangular mark on the back of his hand between his thumb and forefinger that was formed by continuous loops. 

“Tell me about it again,” she said, as she pressed her mouth to his hand.

“It’s our unique mark; the one that is only for you and me. This particular shape is called a triquetra or more commonly, a trinity knot,” he said, his voice still sexy with sleep. “Apollo gave a special mark to symbolons…soul mates, if you prefer,”—the corners of his mouth turned up in the way she loved—“so that we would know our other half.”

IXEOS (The Ixeos Trilogy) : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: Teenagers are full of talent – playing musical instruments, lacrosse, painting – but saving the Earth from aliens? Let’s hope so! 

IXEOS is a thrill packed ride from beginning to end!


Book Description: Teenagers from our earth are brought to Ixeos, an alternate earth that has been taken over by humanoid aliens. While most have been killed, the remaining humans have been enslaved or live as fugitives on the largely desolate planet. Can the outsiders free the rebel leader Darian and rescue the human race before they are destroyed?

Those who enjoyed The Hunger Games, Lord of the Rings, and The Chronicles of Narina will enjoy IXEOS.  

Author’s Inspiration:  There were two – I read a National Geographic article on the almost-200 miles of tunnels under Paris, and found it fascinating. I knew that would be in a story one day. Secondly, my daughter and I encountered, then lost, a flock of ducks on a kayak outing last summer. We started texting each other crazy stories about “where the ducks went.” I finally put the two together, and the foundation of IXEOS was born!

Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Logan Lerman (Marty), Liam Hemsworth (Clay), Jennifer Lawrence (Neahle)

From the Book: They walked the next half hour in silence, unwilling to ask any more questions for which “it’s complicated” was the answer. And they were all mulling over the crazy idea that they were in Paris, France, only not their Paris, France, with people who said they’d followed ducks to another world or dimension years before. They would write these two strangers off as crazy except that here they were, walking down a convoluted succession of tunnels, striding through open rooms with graffiti-painted walls, scooting around reservoirs full of dark water, being led by those strangers who were carrying torches and who seemed to know exactly where they were going.

Jennings Wright

  


Jennings grew up in a small Florida town, spending hours running along the Indian River being chased by pirates, turning into a mermaid, and generally causing inciting imaginary mayhem. Much later, after being a wife, mom, business owner, and non-profit founder, she rediscovered the joys of imaginary mayhem and hasn’t stopped since. She’s published four books to date, with many more on the drawing board. All her stories start with interesting locations and fun facts, and she doesn’t worry about genre til she’s done. When she’s not writing or editing, she’s usually hanging out with her family, doing anything on the water, or traveling.

Favorite Food: Sushi is my favorite food, and the only one I crave when I’m traveling places you don’t want to eat sushi (like Africa).

 

Favorite Place to Write: I generally write in our sunroom or my office, but when the weather is nice, I love to be outside.

 

Favorite Music: I don’t listen to music while I write, and my tastes are very eclectic, from Jimmy Buffett (the Florida girl in me) to Black Eyed Peas.

 

Favorite TV show: I usually watch either police procedural shows (Castle, NCIS, The Mentalist, Bones) or Food Network shows like Chopped, although I like Frasier, M*A*S*H and Seinfeld, too.

On the Edge of Humanity (A Vampire SEAL Novel) : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: YA readers: Are you ready for an action packed vampire novel with Navy SEALS? ON THE EDGE OF HUMANITY is here! This is not your mother’s vampire novel. 

On the Edge of Humanity is far from ‘yet another vampire novel’. 


Book Description: Sixteen-year-old Jo Mason learns she carries a dormant vampire gene on the same day an evil cartel kidnaps her twin brother. A secret vampire SEAL team can save him—if she becomes a bloodsucker, too.

Those who enjoy Amanda Hocking and Rachel Caine, will like ON THE EDGE OF HUMANITY. 

Author’s Inspiration:  First, I love character driven books and I wanted to impart my imagination to a character that starts out struggling in life. Two, I love the fantasy world paralleled with the real world and how the two intertwine. Finally, I take great pride in my military service and I wanted to bring that aspect into the story.

Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Camilla Belle

From the Book: I was trapped in a world where I didn’t belong. A world where my dad had discarded me as if I were a piece of trash. A world where danger constantly surfaced, even in places I called home. I couldn’t say when I came to the decision not to be a victim anymore.

S.B. Alexander

  


I love to transport myself into other worlds—ones where vampires and the fantastical exist. Where life is the playground for the impossible. 

I created fantasy worlds at a young age as a way to deal with life. Yep, I had imaginary friends and talked to myself a lot. I was always creating, thinking, drawing and writing. I believe words are the key to opening the door to extraordinary places with amazing characters that tell a great story. 
When I’m not working my full time job, and plotting Jo’s next challenge, I love to play golf with my husband, and spend time with my two dogs. 
On the Edge of Humanity is my debut novel. It is the first book in the Vampire SEALs series. The second book, On the Edge of Eternity, is in the works.
What is your favorite food, place to write, music to listen to, TV show?: If I could I would eat pizza everyday, I would. I love to write on the beach when I can. There’s something about the hum of the ocean and the crashing of waves that inspires me. Whether I’m writing, working out or in a car, I love music, and I’m a huge fan of 3 Doors Down. When I do have a chance to sit in front of a TV, I love re-runs of the Big Bang Theory.

Max Xylander and the Island of Zumuruud : Free Kindle ebook

Editor’s Note: Swordfights, conspiracies, secret agents, AND magic?! This author definitely knows what goes in a great fantasy read.

Perfect for both Kids and Adults!


Book Description: Max has a dangerously secret ability to make magic things happen- plus some anger management issues. Enjoy magical swordfighting conspiracies with secret agents set in a contemporary world, perfect fantasy for all ages.

Readers who like Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, or The Kane Chronicles, will like MAX ZYLANDER AND THE ISLAND OF ZUMURUUD.

Author’s Inspiration:  I am a vivid daydreamer. I have loved to read from quite a young age and always imagined what it would be like to be able to do magic–really do the magic. What would it feel like to make something across the room move? Or what would it be like to play a trick on an unsuspecting classmate? While love creatively constructed world, I’m generally more interested in things happening just next door. The idea of intrigue and conspiracy and hidden things fascinate me. Might there be a shadowy group pulling the strings somewhere? Powerful people behind the scenes? And then one of our children had a form of leukemia as a child, and the powerlessness of this gave way to the idea of good from evil, and of being transformed. I’m also well acquainted with anger management issues of the teen female, and contrite, bland dialogue, just doesn’t work. Throw in some cynical sarcasm from our villain, and the story just poured out.

Jon Thomason

   

Jon Thomason lives with his family in Sand Diego, CA.

MY FAVORITE PLACE TO WRITE: Easy: at 36,000 feet strapped into a business class seat on an international flight where there is only dim lighting, no Internet, and no distractions other than flight attendants bringing you food.

MY FAVORITE FOOD: Even easier: a Cowboy-style Ribeye steak, not dry-aged, but plenty marbled, cooked medium rare, Oscar-style. Heaven, in short.

MY FAVORITE SHOW: Not easy: too many choices…as a younger, Star Trek, for sure. Today, some perfect blend of Battlestar Galactica (the new series) and Lost by J. J. Abrams, with some darkness from Breaking Bad thrown in. It’s gotta have deep characters to keep me engaged. And no laugh track. No way.
