Vampire Takeover : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: VAMPIRE TAKEOVER is a unique coming of age tale set in a dangerous world! 

It’s fast paced and romantic, with danger at every turn!


Book Description: Preston Mitchell is struggling to survive after the loss of his family in a world ruled by evil night creatures. He later meets Darcy Rose, a teenager alone like himself.  Because of Darcy, Preston learns the true meaning of determination, love, and what it takes to be a man.

Those who love Hunger Games, The Walking Dead, and I am Legend will enjoy VAMPIRE TAKEOVER.  

Author’s Inspiration:  I can’t pinpoint exactly when the idea started, but the story just kept building and building in my mind over time. I had to get it down on paper and it progressed from there. Vampire Takeover is probably my favorite book I’ve written so far.

From the Book: The state of the earth was terrible, so the creatures of the night stepped in. Vampires had remained hidden, but they weren’t about to let humans destroy their world. Each night more and more people disappeared. Curfews were instated, but it didn’t stop the vampires. These ancient beings were at the top of the food chain and everyone was about to realize humanity was a notch lower.

I am taking a chance and living my dream at the moment. Each day I put my words in front of others and have the privilege of sharing my worlds and characters with them. It was a long road to get to this point. Cancer was my big motivation for taking a chance. I realized after surviving that there was more I needed to do in life before I died. So, I began my first book, Vampire’s Eve. I’ve yet to look back and keep writing. Hopefully, also getting better in the process.

Favorite Food: My favorite food at the moment is probably BLTs.

 

Favorite Place to Write: I sit in front of my computer with headphones on while I write. 

 

Favorite Music: Often, I listen to an Italian traditional station, but I listen to lots of others, too.

 

Favorite TV show: My favorite TV show was LOST when it was still airing. Currently, my favorite would be True Blood.

The Griffin Cryer : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: This is a thrilling tale to satisfy your knowledge of what its like to fly a griffin. 

The Griffin Cryer is an enthralling and imaginative tale, suitable for readers of all ages!


Book Description: In her quest to help a griffin and his rider return to their own universe, fifteen year old Frankie discovers hidden strengths and talents. She has become a “Griffin Cryer”, but does she have the ability and courage to rescue her own brother from his world of dreams?

Those who like A Winkle In Time and Eragon, will like THE GRIFFIN CRYER.  

Author’s Inspiration:  My sons and their friends. Youngsters have so many adversities and challenges, especially in the world today. Frankie is an ordinary teenager, with a complicated home life. I wanted to express my belief that no matter how difficult your life becomes, you have the power within you to make things better; find your talents and nurture them, cherish your loved ones, and above all, have faith in yourself.

Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Tom Felton

From the Book: Frankie, the Rider and his griffin have just escaped the evil Professor Chown, and are flying above London. 

“‘You are going the wrong way – we’re on the wrong side of London!’ 

They would need to hurry to reach Professor Chown’s mansion before him.  

‘This is the right way – Balkind’s taking us to Michael.’ 

How could he know? Then Frankie remember the map she’d given the Rider, so long ago now it seemed. 

‘But you’ll miss your chance – you can get Leifur’s stone – you can return to your own world!’ Frankie shouted against the Rider’s ear.

‘Calling your brother back into this world is more important, I think.’ 

‘What?!’ 

‘It is more important for you to call your brother from his world, right now anyway.’ 

‘I didn’t mean “what did you say?” I meant what do you mean?’ Oh lord, thought Frankie, what does he mean? What do I mean? 

But though he couldn’t see her face, it seemed the Rider read her mind. ‘I mean for you to call your brother from his world, into yours.’ 

‘Wha… Don’t be silly! Call him into this world?’ Frankie laughed, but inside her blood simmered at the Rider’s flippancy. 

He twisted to face her, causing Balkind to dip alarmingly. ‘Believe in yourself Francesca. If you can summons a griffin and his rider from another dimension, you can call your brother back into this world.’

‘Turn around, turn around!’ Frankie gibbered. With a smile and a shake of his head, he swivelled to face front, and Balkind’s flight levelled. He didn’t speak again, leaving Frankie to wonder over his conviction that she could somehow retrieve her brother from the limbo he resided in. “

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.
