Indie-licious blog hop teaser

This will be the last teaser from Better Nature prior to it being published! Enjoy....

My eyes narrowed and my temper flared but I shoved it down. Leslie was smarter than any one person should be and cooler than a Canadian winter, so if I didn't keep my head this wouldn't go well. She always seemed to be three steps ahead of me and I didn't want to be left holding the bag again.

We don't have an official linky this week, but Erin Danzer abd Elle Chardou have some exciting teasers for you guys anyway.

WITCH HEARTS by Liz Long LIVE on Amazon!

From Liz:

To my friends and readers: Thanking you is the first thing on my list. Writers do it for the readers and I am so excited to introduce this new story to you. For the fellow authors, the book bloggers, the Twitter friends, and support groups in my writing life, know that we're in this together and I couldn't do it without you. I am so honored you joined me for this fun ride.

I am proud to say that my second title WITCH HEARTS is now LIVE on Amazon for paperback ($8.99) and your Kindle ($2.99).

Witch Hearts is an adult paranormal thriller meant for those who liked to be a little creeped out and also enjoy a murder mystery. Touted as a "Criminal Minds" meets "Charmed" story, Witch Hearts contains three of Liz's favorite things: Magic, Murder, and Mystery.

Below you'll find the cover and blurb, as well as a bit about Liz Long plus a special excerpt not available anywhere else.

Witch Hearts Synopsis:
How does a witch stay safe if a killer can get through her protection spells?

Witches like Ruby and Courtney can take care of themselves. So when Courtney is murdered, Ruby’s world crashes to a halt. The only thing keeping her grounded is the return of Courtney’s brother, Cooper. He seeks revenge, but Ruby wants to help other witches stay alive. To do that, she’ll have to reunite with her old coven’s High Priest, who also happens to be her cheating ex-boyfriend.

If that wasn’t awkward enough, when the killer gets too close, Cooper temporarily moves into Ruby’s place while a police officer tails her every move. Cooper’s presence distracts Ruby as they fight their desire against their need to stay safe. Then Courtney begins to haunt Ruby’s dreams and secrets are spilled, things from Cooper’s past that could get them both killed. The killer continues to stalk Ruby and the more she discovers, the more she fears she won’t be able to keep her heart in her chest.

Cooper and Ruby hopped on his bike and drove back to her place. She even managed to peek out from beneath her helmet to see the city whip past her in a blur. When they finally came to a stop, she untangled herself from him - albeit a tad regretful about it - and handed him back the helmet.

“Thanks again for everything tonight. I know it wasn’t the most fun you could have, but I want everyone to be safe,” she said.

“I understand. I’m glad I went, too. I don’t want anyone else in danger. Plus, you’re good company.” He stood up as he said it, hooking the helmets on his bike.

“You don’t have walk me in or anything. I don’t want to keep you any longer than you need.”

He snorted. “You’re not keeping me from anything. I want to do it, but especially because I want to make sure you’re safe.”

Ruby bit her bottom lip. Her nerves fluttered a bit at the thought of a possible goodnight kiss. She could hardly believe how immature she sounded in her head.

It’s your best friend’s brother. This is Cooper we’re talking about, a voice in her head screamed at her.

Another voice spoke up. Yeah. It’s Cooper. And your thoughts about him have never been exactly brotherly.

Shaking both voices away, she swiped her key fob by the entrance door and Cooper held it open for her. They took the stairs up to the second floor and walked around the corner to her apartment. Ruby stopped as soon as she saw her door.

“Something’s wrong,” she said.

“What? How can you tell?” He looked up and down the hallway.

“There was a barrier when I left. Remember I checked, put my hand on the door when we left? My spell was in place.”

“There was a soft glow on the door,” he said absentmindedly, as though remembering. His eyes narrowed and Ruby could see his veins throb in his neck as his jaw tightened.

“Only witches would be able to see it, but it’s not there.” Ruby took a few steps forward, placing her hand on the door, which was now simply cool and wooden. She retrieved her key and turned the lock, but Cooper stopped her.

“I’ll go in first.”

He swung the door wide open; he held his hands up in case of a fight or a spell, but silence greeted them. Cooper did a quick sweep of the apartment while Ruby waited in the entryway. He returned with Aziza in one arm and a letter in his hand.

“This was on your coffee table,” he said grimly. “Aziza was hiding behind the couch. She hissed until she realized it was me.”

Ruby took the note from him. As she opened it, Cooper stood beside her to read over her shoulder.

“Not all witches are equal. Some are born with extraordinary gifts; anyone can practice, but few are truly powerful. You are one of the lucky ones, Ruby. I apologize about your friend Courtney. She was powerful, but nowhere near your capabilities. I’m afraid that in order for my powers to thrive, yours must come to an end. I’ll be seeing you very soon. -X”

From the Shadows Blog Tour

Welcome to the third stop on Christina Moore's blog tour. Today I'm happy to share with you an interview with the author.

What inspired you to write your first book?
I’ve wanted to write for a very long time. In fact, when I was about 20, I started writing a romantic suspense novel I’d titled The Princess Spy, and I think I got about seven or eight chapters into it before I stopped writing it. I don’t recall the reason why I stopped, but I would certainly love to find the notebook it’s written in so I can polish it up and finish it.

How did you come up with the titles of each book?
For the Shadow Chronicles, I wanted something thematic, so each of the books will have the word “shadows” in it. The same goes for my romantic suspense series, Firehouse 343—the first four books will have the word “fire” in it.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
None that I can think of. I just hope that readers enjoy it!

Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Not in any of the books I’ve written so far, but I was in a car accident this past January that I’ll be writing into my next Firehouse 343 novel.

What books have most influenced your life most?
Paranormal romance, romantic suspense, and mysteries/thrillers influence me. I know these are genres and not individual books, but I really couldn’t put a finger on any one particular book or books that have influenced me more than any other. I think any book that I read and really enjoy influences me in some small way.

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
I think I have two—Nora Roberts and Deborah Cooke. Both of them not only write sexy, irresistible male heroes, but strong, capable female heroines, and I really like it when the female characters start out strong and end strong.

What book are you reading now?
I actually read a book called The Marine’s Babies by Laura Altom on my recent birthday. It’s one of Harlequin’s American Romance line of stories.

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
Kristine Cayne, Shayne McClendon, and Mina J. Moore, to name a few. Their books are really entertaining reads that I’ve enjoyed quite a bit. I met these wonderful ladies through Facebook and we have become pretty good friends.

What are your current projects?
Right at the moment I’m planning a new book which may be a stand-alone, but has the potential to be the first in a series. It will depend on how it turns out. When I’ve finished it, I plan to write the next book in the Firehouse 343 series.

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your books?
There’s nothing major, but if I were so inclined, I might re-word a few scenes to make them work differently.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
I don’t really know how or when, except my earliest memory involving writing goes back to when I was in grade school, and I’d written some short story (just a few paragraphs, I imagine) that was apparently good enough to be brought to the principal’s attention. It involved dinosaurs. But ever since then, when I’ve had to do any creative writing, I’ve strived to make it interesting.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
Naming characters can be a challenge. Sometimes I get an idea in my head of their personality and can’t find a name to fit. I also sometimes find it difficult to write action sequences, or to transition from one scene to the next.

What was the hardest part of writing your book?
Getting it finished, really, was the hardest part of From the Shadows. When I first started writing it, I had a pretty good flow, but unfortunately I go through these periods where I just can’t seem to get motivated. The writing still goes on in my head, but getting the work done is a struggle. A lot of that has to do with outside stress in my life that’s not related to my writing. Thankfully I’m in a really good place right now, so the creativity is flowing!

Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
Writing and editing and character development are hard work. Keeping the plot flowing and tying everything together really does take a lot of effort. Writing isn’t just sitting down and writing; there’s so much more involved than just typing or writing the words—especially if you’re an indie like me and you have to do most of the post-writing work yourself.

Do you have any advice for other writers?
Go for it. If you have an idea rolling around in your head, sit yourself down and write it. Just get it all out and worry about making it presentable later.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Thank you so very much for buying my book. I really hope you enjoyed it enough to come back for more!

What would you do in a zombie apocalypse should it occur on Black Friday?
I would be hoarding bottled water and canned goods, I ain’t gonna lie. I’d be getting my hands on some strong slicing weapons like swords or machetes, and I want a crossbow with as many arrows as I can get my hands on.

If you could interview one of your characters, who would it be and why? 
Lochlan Mackenna from The Shadow Chronicles. He’s got a secret that he hasn’t told anyone, and I’d try to get him to tell. He’s also a flirt and he’s sarcastic, which I love. I’d also want to interview Logan Kilbride from Firehouse 343. Like Lochlan, he’s a sarcastic, flirtatious guy, and what woman wouldn’t want to get to know a sexy, single firefighter better?

Fave character(s) not your own? 
In books it would be Sherlock Holmes and Eve Dallas. In the movies, James Bond and Aragorn. On TV, Dean Winchester and the Tenth Doctor.

Is there any musical group or singer that inspires your writing?
Oh, absolutely. When I’m writing, I like to think of songs that would make for a good soundtrack to certain scenes, just like in a movie. I often hear 3 Doors Down, Linkin Park, and Nickelback in my head, and I’ve also thought of Hunter Hayes, Kelly Clarkson, and Patty Loveless, among others. I’ve made lists of the songs that got me through my books and plan to get them up on my blog one of these days.

About the Book:
Shapeshifter Juliette Singleton left her home to escape the oppressive concern of her family...and the memory of being raped. She finds little solace, however, as her sleep is plagued with nightmares, forcing her to re-live the brutal assault over and over again.

Race Covington, a chimaera, thought he was the only one of his kind. Then he reunited with Juliette, whom he had known as a child, and discovered to his delight that he was not alone after all—and the both of them discovered that they were destined to be together.

Meeting her mate leads Juliette to open up about the attack and begin the healing process, while Race believes meeting his means it is definitely time to escape the employ of a dangerous and vindictive vampire. They decide it is time to start their lives over again—together—but going home proves to be harder than they expected when they are forced to confront a dangerous foe neither could have ever imagined.

About the Author
Christina Moore proved she had a talent for writing fiction in grade school when a story about a dinosaur so interested her teacher that it was brought to the principal’s attention, and she was highly praised for her creativity. Although she doesn’t recall the details of that childhood tale, the feeling of accomplishment stayed with her throughout her life. Deciding in her teens to indulge in her passion for storytelling, Christina delved first into fan fiction, which she has written off and on for several years. Her mother said to her when she was just 14 that she “could write this stuff,” and a long-time friend once told her she had the talent to be a professional writer; so after procrastinating a lot longer than she should have, she put her mind to writing something she could sell.

After working on her first novel during NaNoWriMo 2010 and editing and revising the story throughout the next year, Christina made her professional debut in January of 2012 with the paranormal romance Chasing Shadows, followed by an erotic short story entitled The Beauty in the Black Room and the romantic suspense novel Fire Born, both also published in 2012. Currently she resides in Ohio, where she has lived all her life.

When not allowing the characters in her imagination use her to tell their stories, she enjoys a great movie, good times with family and friends, and being “hu-mom” to two Chihuahuas and two Siberian Huskies. Christina always keeps a notebook handy to jot down ideas for future stories and is currently working on her fourth novel.

Indie-licious Blog Hop teaser

A timer went off and Aunt May sprang to her feet, bustling about the kitchen until the table was piled high with chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, steamed spinach and corn on the cob. She set a glass of milk in front of each of us with a flourish. “Enjoy!”

“Only if you join us.” I cut my gaze to the empty chair across from me.

“Oh don’t be silly. You two eat while I do a few chores. You’re a growing girl and need all you can get.”

I raised my eyebrows and set the fork I’d picked up back on the table. “The only way I’m liable to grow is sideways, and if that happens I believe your cooking will top the suspect list. Sit and eat. I’ll help you with the chores after.”

Aunt May sat with a good-natured laugh. “You better watch what you say. I’ll take you up on it.”

Interview with author Misty Provencher

Today I'm happy to welcome Misty Provencher, author of Cornerstone, Mercy, and other titles. I got a chance to ask Misty some questions, and am happy to share the details with you. 

Ok, to get things started, why don’t you tell us a little about yourself?
I’m Misty.  I’ve got such an obsession with words.  I follow them around endlessly, until I’ve worn them down enough that they tell me their stories.

What makes you tick? What made you who you are today?
I would say peanut butter is primarily responsible for moving my gears.  I love the stuff and used to eat it for every breakfast and lunch until I was deep in my twenties.  Good times.
What made me what I amhmmI was a runaway, and I think that gave me solid idea of how and why I should constantly shift around paradigms.  My husband and kids have created a great deal of me too.  I believe they make me one of the very best versions of who I am and who I can be,  every single day.  Thank God for them.

What would you say is your greatest strength?
I love people and I love writing.  Two great things that go together like peanut butter and soup spoons.

Tell me about the person you’re the closest to.
There’s this guy.  He rubs my head so I can go to sleep each night, and he makes me laugh.  I can tell him anything in the world and, usually, he gets it.  He doesn’t tell anyone my weaknesses, but he knows them all.  And, even in our worst moments with each other, he never uses the worst parts of me against myself.  I wish every woman could be married to him, but I’m grateful every day of my life that I’m the one who has him.

How do you feel about your life as it is today?
I had always thought I’d max out at sixteen, so every day is a gift.  Sometimes it’s still a struggle to accept it, sometimes it seems to belong in the re-gifting pile, but it is a gift, none the less and most days, it’s exactly what I’ve always wanted.

What is the most rewarding thing in your life right now?
Aside from my family?  My writing career is finally taking off, and I’m constantly thrilled to hear from people who have found joy in my work.  That’s huge-osity.  To positively affect another human being?  Bring them some joy, some emotional oomph?  Yeah, baby.  That’s the gold medal I want.

What is your favorite memory?
I’ve got bags full of them, but I assume you’d like a writing memory?  A particularly good one came from the blog post I made, in which I began releasing Cornerstone to the world, for free.  I was overwhelmed with the extreme outpouring of utter kindness, concern and support.  I was absolutely blown away by the amazing kindness of strangers.  I felt like I was being lifted up and held on everyone else’s shoulders.  I was a pretty broken chick at that moment, and strangers came to support me, heal me.  Dang, that’s such a beautiful memory.

What’s Your Worst?
Nah.  It’s more fun to dwell on the greatest hits instead.

What do you like to do for fun?
I carouse the office supply aisles, I buy colored sticky notes and Moleskins and I rush home and GET FUNK-AY with them.  You should see what I do with really good, inky pens.  CRAZINESS, I TELL YOU.

What is the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?
Dude, you don’t have to beg me for my birth stories.  I’ll send you pictures.

What is your favorite feature in the opposite sex?
Ohhhhhhh, so so much.  I love that men are men.  Especially when they’re gentlemen.  I love that they’re all testosterony and stupid about their remote controls and bathed in awesome colognes.  I find it utterly adorable that they are confused by make-up and girl talk, shoes and chick flicks.  I am mesmerized with the how they can do more than one pull up, how they can be so volatile, and I am enchanted with how a man allows a woman to tame him.  Talk about sexy.
I am in love with the differences between us - that we are, and will always be, somewhat of a mystery to one another.  Keeps it fun.

What kind of music do you like to listen to?
All of it.  I eat lyrics with peanut butter on them. 

What is your favorite word?
I can’t say it here.  Let’s just say I was raised by a sailor (literally) and I have found an appreciation for a certain expletive that is flexible enough to (with proper intonation) explain, express, and accurately transport absolute understanding of just about every emotion in the spectrum.

What is your least favorite word?
Oh, nobody puts a word in the corner when I’m around.  I make sure they all get a turn to dance.

What turns you on?
Heh heh.  Eh hem. 
The list is frighteningly long and full of indescribable moments that suddenly happen and can never happen again.  Like once, my boyfriend was getting ready to do the dishes.  He filled the sink with water and lifted his wrist.  He unbuckled the strap of his watch and laid it to the side.  That was it.  And it still gives me shivers to think of it.  Ridiculous huh?  I’m sad that I can’t accurately capture for you the way the shadows on his face created something like art, how appealing his level of unawareness was and how sexy it was to watch his fingers move, or and I mean, DAHHH  UhM - the way the sun came through the window to accent his muscles shifting beneath his shirt.  But if I could, my friends, you’d all be dry humping the computer screen.  Guaranteed.  That’s what keeps me writing- I’m always chasing that dragon down with a quiver full of words.

What turns you off?
Cinchy.  Fruit gnats, wrists (I can’t look at them, ew gross), and math.

What sound or noise do you love?
I’m a fan of all things audio.  Music, laughter, the way voices shift like bodies making love, car hornsit all means life is still out there, just waiting for me.

What sound or noise do you hate?
Oh, there’s one.  A mind that has shut all its windows and doors, while I’m knocking.  The sound of the un-greeted knocking makes me sad.

What is your favorite curse word?
Oh, you tricky girl.  I already didn’t tell you six questions ago.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
I’m doing everything I can  just to get a sincere ‘Well done’.  But I’d settle for, “C’mon in.  We’re having peanut butter.”

Legacy of Kilkenny Cover Reveal

The Legacy of Kilkenny is the first full length novel I wrote.  Pru and Abel, will always be my first love and my favorite werewolves.  Since The Great Wolf will be out later in 2013, and the cover is of Abel, I thought Pru deserves her own cover.  Eden Crane outdid herself!  I think the essence of Pru was captured in the cover model.  As TLOK reaches the second anniversary in June, I thought it was a good time for a facelift.  

The book is FREE on Amazon.  If you have a Nook, Barnes and Noble will price-match.  Find out why The Legacy of Kilkenny consistently stays in the top 100 Free e-books in Teen Literature.  Thank you for reading my books!


Monday, April 15, 2013


I'm guessing you know I'm a writer, since that's what this site is all about. Many of you probably know I'm an artist too. Some of you might even know that I'm a licensed cosmetologist with a serious addiction to all kinds of beauty products. But there's a lot more too me than that, not that it really shows up on this blog. Well, that's about to change. As of today, this blog has been reformatted into series. There's no rhyme or reason or specific schedule to how these series are explored, and more may come. But for now, I'd like to introduce you to the series. Let's start with the three you know, that will stick around in a  less rigid fashion.

Character Monday ---> Character Confessions
Same character interviews you've come to know and love, only with a new look and feel

Writer's Wednesday ---> Writer's Corner

 This one is a little revamped, as it will be only about writing and publishing specifically. Everything else will go in other categories. This will be status reports on books, shop talk and advice.

Fantasy Friday ---> Legends and Lore
This is where I'll talk about some of the mystical creatures I research. Look to these for hints of some of the beasties you'll be meeting in my books.

And the new series....

Cover Love

This is where I will share the current batch of covers I can't stop drooling over. I may sneak one of my own in from time to time, but mostly I'll be showing you other people's work.

Love of Books
This is where other people's books go. Reviews, releases, even tours can fall under this category  If it's about books, it goes here.

Glam It Up
This is where I'll talk about all things beauty, everything from fawning over a new product to tips on how to have healthy shiny hair. I love makeup and can talk about it all day. And I figured some of you might enjoy that too.

I love crafting and I do a lot of different things. Here's where I'll share my various projects, share my crafting frustration talk about new techniques that intrigue me.

Musical Musings
I firmly beleive everyone loves music, they just have their own version of what falls into that category. Don't look for any top tens, because I'm not so big on them these days. But I have an eclectic blend of music I love and this is where I'll share some of it.

Cinematic Adventures
I have a three disk subscription to Netflix, as well as instant streaming, Amazon Plus and HBO, and I still go to the movie theater multiple times a month. So to say I love movies is an understatement. In this series I'll talk about movies I've seen recently, which won't always be new releases or even recent releases.

Life and Love
This will be stories from my real life, whether it's a humorous retelling of honey do's that didn't go right or horrifying kitchen adventures that end in smoke and tears, this is where I will share it. This one probably won't appear as often. And I promise, I'll try to keep the baby talk out of it. 

So that's what I have for now. Down the road there might be new series. If I don't like one of the series I will phase it out. But this is an attempt to blog more often, since I enjoy blogging and hopefully you enjoy reading it.

Free Kindle book

Readers - now is your chance to get Kristina Circelli's Beyond the Western Sun for FREE! This great giveaway only lasts April 13th - 17th, so get your copy today by clicking here.

Beyond the Western Sun is Book One in The Whisper Legacy, a thrilling adventure into Native American lore. Filled with otherworldly creatures, incredible journeys, and a powerful woman who embraces her dark destiny, this novel is the read you've been looking for. And did I mention it's free?

Check out the blurb below!

A gripping journey into the heart of Native American legend, "Beyond the Western Sun" follows the epic struggle of Whisper, a young female Cherokee apprentice, on a harrowing adventure into the Land of the Dead to save the captive son of Ian Diavya. Together they face insurmountable odds, conquer terrible demons, and in the process, find a strength and courage within themselves neither knew possible. What they don't know is that these early adventures are only tests, for to save Ian's son, they must also stop the evil-minded Raven-Eater from unleashing his Army of the Dead to destroy the living world.

As the Army of the Dead marches closer to the Western Sun, as Whisper leads them deeper into the Land of the Dead, and as the truth behind Cole's death is slowly revealed, Ian discovers that the fate of both worlds depends on his courage, his humility, and the life of his son.

An epic saga of hope, redemption, and undying love, "Beyond the Western Sun" is what all fantasy adventures must strive to be: a complex, intricate examination of human emotion set within the context of worlds known only in our imagination. And in this regard, "Beyond the Western Sun" is a stunning achievement. Melding fantasy and legend in an epic quest, the third novel of her young career signals the arrival of Kristina Circelli as a master storyteller. Creating the indelible character of Whisper, vividly portraying the worlds that she and Ian must traverse to accomplish their goal, and capturing their human frailties, hopes and fears with depth and touching sincerity, Circelli reminds us with stunning precision the greatness we are all capable of, and the heavy price our actions can rend.

Meet the Author
Kristina Circelli is the author of two published novels, "The Helping Hands" and "The Iron Fist: Legacy of the Helping Hands." A descendent of the Cherokee nation, Circelli holds both a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in English from the University of North Florida.

Her latest novel, "Beyond the Western Sun," is steeped in the spoken narratives of Native American lore, and is at once a gripping story of a father's love and his search for redemption as well as a written record of a Nation's belief system. Part adventure, part myth, and altogether riveting, the third novel from Kristina Circelli signifies the emergence of an important voice in Native American literature.

From her extraordinary ability to vividly create heretofore-unknown worlds to her engaging prose, Circelli's "Beyond the Western Sun" is a landmark novel from one of the freshest new voices in all of contemporary American fiction.
