Clash #NewRelease by @charity_parkerso

Today I have the pleasure of presenting Clash by Charity Parkerson. She was also kind to answer some questions for me. Please give her a warm welcome.

– How did you get started writing?

I had a reoccurring dream that wouldn’t leave me alone until I wrote it down. Once I did, it continued growing until it became this entire underground black ops series. I haven’t stopped writing since.

– What genre do you prefer to write/read?

I prefer to write M/M romance. That’s my happy place. I love to read historical romance.

– What inspires you?

Everything. I’m an observer, and a bit of an introvert. I watch and listen. Sometimes, it takes the tiniest thing to spark an entire story in me.

What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on the 4th book in my “Hellish” series. It’s a M/M paranormal series, filled with vampires, demons, and all other manner of creatures.

– What are your future plans?

I hope to keep writing as much as possible. Last year, I got all my rights back from Ellora’s Cave, so while those book were re-releasing, I had time to get ahead on my current releases. I have a few books sitting on my desktop, waiting for their turn for release. In the meantime, I’m still plugging along. One of my plans is to start a new MMA series.

– Tell me three things that is not commonly known about you.
I spontaneously burst into song.
I hate Chinese food.

My second career love is designing book covers.

Blurb:

Michael let Gavin keep him a secret once. Never again.

In high school, Michael and Gavin were total opposites. Michael was scholarly while Gavin was the athlete. Gavin chased all the girls and tormented Michael for being gay. Michael endured Gavin’s public taunts with grace, because he knew the truth—he was the relationship Gavin really wanted. That is, until Gavin went too far and pushed Michael away for good.

It’s been years since they’ve seen each other, but not much has changed. Gavin is still the athlete, playing for a minor-league hockey team. Michael still hates him. But fate loves a good laugh, and the pair end up stranded together during a flood. Things heat up fast, but can they survive more secrets or will Gavin finally destroy Michael for good?

The Second Book in the Wildly Popular Shadow-Keepers Series!

** THE INTRODUCTION OF THE NEW KEEPER – MCKENZIE MILLER**

Can a heart that is walled away never to love or trust find its beat in one that is needing someone to save it? And what happens when that salvation is blurred?

McKenzie Miller had never needed anyone. Not since she lost both her parents to a crime of passion at a young age. Shuffled from foster home to foster home, Kenzie finally took control of her own life and lived on the streets.

Now she’s an adult and she has a hard-wired survivalist core to never be used or abused again. She’s strong and no one will ever hurt her–because no one will ever be let inside of the part of her that can still feel–her heart.

Lana had everything that her parent’s money could buy and until they lost it all in the economy crash, the young ballet dancer had a bright future with the San Francisco Ballet Company. Now she struggles to reach for her dream and still survive. Until one night…

Welcome to the world of the Grid. Where heroes and Eaters of souls walk among us. And a war rages with the prize being the existence of mankind, or its loss.

About Jas T. Ward

Jas T. Ward has always used writing as a necessary escape. With a past that is marred with a difficult childhood and domestic violence as well as being homeless as an adult, Ward lost her creative voice when she lost her soul mate to suicide.

Finding that creative voice once again in writing in social media via blogs and creative writing groups, it was the fans that encouraged her to put her literary weavings to paper for them to enjoy.

Ward lives in Texas with her dog and cat- Author Dog Pumkin and Writer Kitty Orleans and is the proud parent of three independent children.

When asked why she writes, Ward answers simply:

Reading saved me. It was my salvation and my haven. I now strive to pay that gift back by writing books that can give the same to others. And to keep myself sane.

A truth about Summer is discovered that may change everything.

Read on for a Sneak Peek:

Excerpt:

From Summer’s Point-of-View:

Drew said, “You’re gonna marry me, aren’t you?”

“I’ll think about,” I would joke, feeling secure in our love and being together.

“Really, Summer? You have to think about it?” He kissed me gently at first on my forehead. Next came a light peck on the tip of my nose. Before I can say anything, his lips crashed down on mine, kissing me with such sensuality, I felt like he was going down on my mouth. I was arching my back, writhing underneath him, and feeling close to climaxing when he pulled away.

Suddenly I felt cold and empty as Drew collapsed next to me on the bed. He turned to me and grinned. “Admit it, Summer, you nearly had a Drewgasm from that kiss, didn’t you?”

Drew and his Drew-isms. I had to laugh.

“Nah,” I said, “Just from a kiss? No one can get an orgasm from just a kiss.”

Drew traced his finger on my lips before dipping it into my mouth. “The tremors I felt from you were just you reacting to the cold, wasn’t it?”

“Uh huh,” I said, getting hot as Drew used his fingers to dip in and out of my mouth before he traced his fingers down my neck and leaned his head down to dip his tongue into my mouth, where his fingers had been. He moved over me and rubbed his naked body against mine, lightly and then vigorously, his hot skin barely touching the tips of my breasts while his mouth played with mine.

“You feel nothing at all?” Drew asked, his warm breath tickling my ears.

“Nothing,” I said, gritting my teeth as he lowered his body to grind the heated part of him against the part of me that wanted him so badly. He simulated lovemaking with me, pumping and grinding against me to the point I almost cried out.

“Nothing?” he asked, now pushing up against me with his entire lower body, pumping me up until I was climbing up the wall with my back. I was being pounded against the wall, and it had never felt so good.

About Badass Book Society

Over the course of several weeks—months, actually—an editor, cover designer, author, publishing consultant, and blogger all hung out and discussed what was going on in the Indie publishing arena. Tales of individuals marketing themselves as editors without even a moderate understanding of grammar rules, blog tours with absolutely zero engagement and planning, embarrassing covers, formatting that was a jumbled mess, and authors who brow-beat reviewers for poor reviews were just a few of the things discussed with this Publishing Round-table.

It’s Alive! It’s Alive!

These individuals decided they wanted readers to have a place where they were guaranteed a Badass Reading experience. A place where the reader could be sure the book they purchased was professionally written, edited, formatted, covered, and promoted. So, Badass Book Society was born.

It’s Alive! It’s Alive!

Then we started thinking…What constitutes a Badass Author? Is it an author who has a large following on social media? An author who consistently hits the Best Seller list (or says they do, anyway)? Or is a Badass Author an author who takes their writing and publishing seriously? Someone who pays or barters for editing, formatting, covers, promotion. You know, someone who puts their money where their mouth is.

It’s Alive! It’s Alive!

While these professionals were sitting around brainstorming, the idea of having a directory, of sorts, to list reputable Indie publishing professionals started to take hold. What if we could list Badass Professionals who went above and beyond for their authors? What if we listed those Professionals who had the experience, knowledge, and originality to always produce stellar results? So, Badass Professionals was born.

A call for Badass Authors is imminent but you can find out more about becoming a Badass Author at http://smarturl.it/BaBS-AutApp

Skriker, the Halfling son of a demon and a stripper, is a supernatural hunter with nothing to tie him down, and he likes it that way.

But when the tattooed, Harley-riding bad boy makes a trip out to the abandoned town of Paradise Hill, a rotting burg rumored to be infested by a parade of grisly horrors, he discovers that he isn’t the only hunter to sniff out such a rich prize…and while she just might be the stuff his dreams are made of, she may also lead to what could be his gruesome undoing.

Excerpt from Spanish Bay

CHRIS MILLER WAS BORN twenty-one years ago, to Francine and Andrew Miller of Lubbock, Texas, where the Millers owned a cattle ranch and cotton farm on the outskirts of the city. They were an average, god-fearing family and had lived in the area for generations. As was the case for most farming families, Chris wasn’t an only child; he was the third of six little Millers. His eldest brother, Andrew Junior, was four years his senior, followed by Alexandra, himself, Jack, Jessica and little Frank. Frank was a real late-comer, fifteen years younger than Chris and born with cerebral palsy. Yet, in spite of being unexpected, unplanned, and not really wanted, he was the sunshine of the family, and Francine and Andrew knew better than to question the Lord’s wisdom.

Hans M Hirschi (b. 1967) has been writing stories ever since he was a child. Adulthood and the demands of corporate life efficiently put an end to his fictional writing for over twenty years. A global executive in training and channel development, Hans has traveled the world and had previously published non-fictional titles.   The birth of his son and the subsequent parental leave provided him with the opportunity to unleash his creative writing once again. With little influence over his brain’s creative workings, he indulges it, going with the flow.   A deeply rooted passion for, faith in a better world, in love, tolerance and diversity are a red thread throughout both his creative and non-fictional work. His novels might best be described as “literary romance, engaging characters and relevant stories that won’t leave you untouched, but hopeful.”   Hans is a proud member of the Swedish Writers’ Union and the Writers’ Center in Sweden.
