Will Mori ever find peace in her happily ever after?

And they’re going to be my ticket out.

What’s the worst that could happen? Sit down and let me tell you.
The Void Virus has been let loose on the Earth. Caused by experiments gone wrong, an outbreak has ravaged the world. Anyone infected has turned into a decaying empty shell, void of their former selves. The animate decomposing bodies have become known as Rotters, stumbling around for the scent of the living.
Alone in the dark new world where even the dead don’t die, I must fight to survive. Not only against the Rotters, but the remaining uninfected who have turned savage in their plight of survival; the scavers.
As the world I once knew is lost, a new one emerges. Strange things begin to happen. Some are able to wield power over the elements. I develop a strange healing ability. It is unknown if this is a rogue symptom of the virus, or if the solitude is driving me crazy.
Puppy, my German Shepherd, and I have been on our own until four guys enter my life and refuse to leave. Strangely enough, they’re just as broken as I am.
My name is Blyss and we will set this world on fire if necessary. After all… What’s the worst that could happen?

Into the Shadows by Jarica James & Rowan Thalia #newrelease

Into the Shadows (Juniper’s Sight Book 1)

°
Ghost, Spirits, and Demons.
Paranormal experiences aren’t usually part of the coursework for college. That is, unless you are Juniper Nevels.

Jun has had ghostly encounters all of her life, in fact she has come to expect them. Her two best friends, Dexter and Sterling have always been by her side to help her when they hit. Through battling the terrifying nightmares and spooky sightings, they’ve only grown closer.

Life as they know it seems to be perfect when in their junior year, their request for a co-ed dorm is granted. That means no more late night phone calls and facing her inner demons alone. What could go wrong with her two best friends by her side?

When twin brothers, Asher and Alex join the group, the sparks start flying. Then, during what should have been a fun ghost hunting trip, plans go awry. The group of friends turned lovers awaken something dark living in the hidden corridors of Dudley Hall. Now that it is awake, it is hungry … and it’s eyes are set on Jun.

Jun and her four sexy roommates must come together to solve the mystery of the haunting before the encounters become fatal. Will they find the information they need to stop the terror that increases with each day?

Is Juniper strong enough to lock away the malevolent spirit, or will she follow him into the shadows?

Author Tyranni Thomas #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Tyranni Thomas

°

°

A little about me…

I’m terrible at talking about myself. I’m Tyranni Thomas in the literary world. I started out writing Historical Fiction and now I write High Fantasy Historical RH. I was a history major once upon a time and I’m still kind of obsessed. Vikings and Game of Thrones are my tv fandoms. Their Vampire Queen and Four Psychos are my current RH addictions. I may or may not refer to myself as the Mother of Heathens and Pitbulls. I’m a single mother of three boys and a cancer survivor.

°

°

Have I always wanted to be an author…

I loved to read and write. I wrote short stories as far back as grade school and I wanted to take the creative writing class so bad in high school my mother petitioned for me to take it a year early. (She got me in too!) I was published in a local drug and alcohol program for some poetry I did in that class, but I never thought it possible as a career, back then the indie author world wasn’t as large and accessible as it is today, so I spent a decade or so as a nurse before I took up the pen again.

°

°

My current series is The Crossroads Priestess.

The inspiration for it came from a couple places. My own life seasons the FMC. She has three kids and is stressed to the max with cancer. I’d been there, but in Tara’s case her cancer proves terminal and I wanted a fuck cancer story. So, I took that and mixed in some of the bump in the night type stuff I’d heard over the last decade of working night shift in nursing homes and let my pen do the rest.

°

°

Now that The Crossroads Priestess is out to the ARC team, I’ve been working on Taking the Night, book II of The Krypt Series.

°

Quirks…

No one can read my work until it’s done. I can give snippets, but that’s it. No shoulder surfing at my house!

°

Hopes for the Future:

I’m hoping I can make it to Penned Con in St Louis this year and fit in a Florida trip.

°

Advice for those that are new…

Join lots of Indie groups and don’t be afraid to make friends and ask questions!

°

°

Anything to say to my readers…

I’d like to thank the readers for their awesome support and feedback! The Reverse Harem readers and authors are so supportive. I love the interaction and sense of community that has developed on Facebook.

The Heathen Harem Hideaway

Author Samantha Rose #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Samantha Rose

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hmm, where do I start. I’m a Sci-fi author. I plan to venture out to other genres in the near future. I’m actually writing two contemporary romance novellas that will be out this summer. I’m originally from Nova Scotia, Canada. After meeting my husband I moved to the USA. Flash forward 8 years. I currently live in Alabama with my husband, two sons, four cats, and my fish. We move around a lot. I live a quiet lifestyle of housewife, and stay at home mom. My life is a bit norm, so I don’t have any crazy stories to tell.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Surprisingly no, I recently wanted to become one — I want to say within the last 4 years. I adore so many great authors. I’d have to give them all credit for me writing today. If it wasn’t for new authors creating new worlds and books, I likely wouldn’t have been inspired. So, I’d like to shout out to all the wonderful authors out there, thank you for being my inspiration!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My inspiration was fear. Having fear is healthy, but what if you wrote about that fear to help overcome it? So, that’s what I did. I have a huge fear of snakes. HUGE. Alabama has a lot of snakes in its green wonderland. Often times, when I go for nature walks with my boys, we see snakes sunning themselves. I usually walk (run) by them, I have respect for them. Meaning, I keep away from them. Though I fear our serpent friends, I know a good amount about them. I decided to write about them to help myself. So far, it’s not working, at all — but the experience has been a blast!

°

°

What are you working on now?

Well, I just finished book two in my Sky Serpent Clan series. I’m doing two contemporary romance novellas, it’ll be part of a Forever safe series which will feature many other amazing authors. After that I plan to write about Tara. She’s the next in my Sky Serpent Clan series line. That’s what I’m currently working on right now.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Possibly? I always have one of my four cats, tea, and some form of candy within arms reach.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I know I’m not perfect, but one day I hope my writing will grow, and get better with time. That people who read my books, will continue to enjoy them.

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

As a newbie myself, I want others out there to know — don’t be afraid to take that jump. Take the first step, you can do it! Write what makes you happy and don’t stop. Surround yourself with other authors and support one another. Having author friends are wonderful. Lastly, don’t take bad reviews to heart. Not everyone will enjoy your book and that’s okay, that doesn’t mean others won’t enjoy your book. I’ll be cheering you all on from the sidelines.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

A huge thank you to everyone that has read my first book, and my second. To those that helped me spread the word around, and those that have supported me, it helped a lot. To the spectacular readers that have posted reviews stating they loved my book, and gave me tips. You make writing worth it. You’re all truly appreciated!

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

I’m addicted to caffeine, cats, and I swear all the time. I have a toddler who’s a handful, but I love dearly as well as two cats who are very ‘mama’s babies’. My husband is my other half in every sense of the world and has really helped me make this dream a reality. I don’t people or socialize well, I’ve mastered using GIFs and memes to communicate on social media. I have a degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice, master’s work in Cybersecurity, crime scene investigation, and forensic psychology, and I was a Correctional Officer before my husband joined the military!

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

°

I never knew what I wanted to be growing up, but I’ve been writing stories for as long as I can remember. I have old composition notebooks and computer files of all of my books I’ve started. I never actually finished a book with the intention of publishing until my book Smoke and Wishes that I finished in September 2018 and released March 1st, 2019.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

The Aces was honestly just a plot/collection of characters that just came to me one night when I was half asleep. Best Wishes was the fact paranormal romance has been one of my go-to favorite categories to read for as long as I can remember! High School Clowns & Coffee Grounds was because I wanted to have a contemporary YA series that would be more relatable to teenagers and young adults but still was considered an RH.

°

What are you working on now?

°

Editing for my upcoming releases: Lads & Lattes (High School Clowns & Coffee Grounds book 1) as well as Smoke and Survival (Best Wishes book 2) and writing the second book of my The Aces series, Adversary.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

I make the facial expressions my characters make, like if my character is smirking or narrowing their eyes, I’m doing it too!

°

What are your hopes for the future?

°

To be able to continue releasing books that people love! I’m not too concerned with getting reviews or anything, while they are very nice, I write because I love it and I want to share these little pieces of me with the world.

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

°

It can be hard, some days you’ll doubt yourself and others you’ll feel like ‘hell yes I got this’. Don’t let those bad days, doubts, bad reviews, or negative people bring you down, your work is your art, your creation, and that is beautiful. Get people hyped for your book with a takeover (if you’re writing reverse harem, there is a very large community on Facebook!), teasers, interactive games, your inspiration, or facts about the writing process!

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

Thank you so much for all your support through the process and launch of my first book as well as the interaction in the facebook group afterward! I can’t wait for you guys to get your hands on my future books, hope you love them!!

When I was younger I always wrote short stories. It wasn’t until I was going through a bad patch in my life that I decided to set the goal of becoming an author and publishing a book.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

My muses came to me one day screaming in my head until I started to listen to them and write down what they were showing me. The first book I finished writing isn’t the first book I’m publishing. It’ll be published later in my spin-off series

I’m actually working on book two to my Out For Blood Series and editing through the first book to my spin-off series.

No unless you count that I don’t plot at all. Everything is written straight from my head. I may write down certain detail because my memory is crap, but that’s about it.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope that people will see my vision. I put my heart and soul in my characters and their like family. I have signed up for Penned Conn 2020, so I’m excited to meet the many different authors I see as role models.

°

Just follow your heart. Don’t let others or yourself talk you out your dream. The road will be ruff and expensive, but the outcome is all worth it. Nothing worth while comes easy.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

I hope you guys enjoy Remy’s story and later Winter’s. Remy’s journey is dark, but it’s filled with so much emotion. I know we’re not supposed to have favorites, but she’s mines.
