New Romance....by N.N. Jackson

This blog features a new romance by N.N. Jackson... Miranda's relationship ends abruptly after she finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her. She decides to leave everything, and goes to Italy for a summer holiday. She wants to get her mind straight, to find her inner peace, and strength. What she is not expecting is a mysterious, painfully good-looking Italian. She needed to reconcile. It was not even about a reconciliation with John. She needed reconciliation with herself, to forgive herself for the lousy ending. For lousy last 2 years of relationship. For trying to hold on to something that just wasn't there anymore. When she got under the shower, her eyes were open, but she wasn't really aware. She was deeply in a process of reassessment of her life. Of her youth. Of herself. John was probably just the trigger. There were more sinister emotions emerging, mostly occurring when she was really tired. Hatred, resentment, burning anger. But the worst thing was hope. Underneath it all, a part of her hoped they would be back together. Hope can really mess you up. Absence of hope can lead to accepting and letting go. But when there's a hope, and you're not even aware it's there, lying like a cat in the dark, then you have a real problem on your hands. ******************** It was not so much his face, although it was very appealing and tempting. It was the look in his eyes. So dangerous, yet very kind, so challenging but still very passionate. Miranda found herself unprepared for this. She was surprised by her own reaction to this... well, face it, a complete stranger. *********************** "I sense that your heart is filled with sadness, resentment, longing and, maybe even, unfulfilled promises." She wasn't sure if he really felt all that or if it's just a sleazy pick-up line. "How do you know all this, Marco?" He sounded sincere. "It's not that hard. I've been watching you, and what more, I've been listening to you talking. People's voices are a treasury of information. You just have to be open to it enough, and you will be able to hear what they are really saying. Once you do that, you become aware what's really underneath the surface." Miranda was silent, absorbing his every word, absorbing every move his lips made. Marco continued. "Resentment and suppression of emotions are poisonous. It alienates you from your soul. Not to mention, it adds wrinkles to your forehead!" Miranda loved the way he could be deep and funny at the same time. Find out more here! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NQF95CU

Viv Drewa - Owl lover and Author!


Before I tell you anything about myself let me answer a question everybody asks me: Why do you have owls in your novels? The answer is because I’ve always loved them and wanted to work them into my passion for writing. My favorite of all the owls is the barn owl which is on my author’s page on FaceBook and the banner on my blog.I had been awarded third place for my nonfiction short story about my grandfather's escape from Poland. Later, I rewrote this story and was published in the "Polish American Journal" as "From the Pages of Grandfather's Life" and has republished it on Amazon.com as a short story.I took creative and journalism courses to help in my transition to fulfill my dream of becoming a writer. I worked as an intern for Port Huron's 'The Times Herald", and also wrote, edited and did the layout or the Blue Water Multiple Sclerosis newsletter "Thumb Prints."

Jessica Kong - Inspirations



How did you come up with the idea for your storyline?
If you are an author, I am sure you have been asked this question multiple times. If you are a reader, you must have thought ‘where do authors come up with this stuff?’

Well, for me it all started with a scene from a black and white romance movie that I once saw. It was a couple laying on the beach in an intimate embrace as the incoming waves washed over them. That scene sparked a dream so real that it kept me in its clutches for months. Normally, I read horrors and paranormals as well as watch them on TV. At the time I had this dream, I had become a new mother of triplets. It goes without being said that I needed time to relax and regain my sanity. I did this by replaying in my mind my favorite books and movies and playing video games. And even though those storylines were great, there was always something I wished the characters had done differently.

This led me to ask the ‘what if’ question. What if the man on the beach was a secret agent and the woman he held in his arms was an alien from another world that he was protecting from his government? What if this alien humanoid evolved from felines? My mind began showing me a storyline heading in a different direction than the movies’. I found it interesting and fun, so I started to write it down. My new ‘escape from a chaotic world’ was created.

As I wrote about this blossoming romance, the couple became more real to me. Their story continued to unravel in my head. It began to include family members, best friends, traveling into space, even a timeline. As my triplets grew, I wrote storyline after storyline from that one beach scene, eventually writing A Seacat’s Love starring Rick McCall and Leonora—my spy and alien. Now my fans can experience the dream I had that night so many years ago. Author Biography My writing career began with the publication of the first two books in the Sea-anan Saga, A Lost Kitten and A Forgotten Kitten. The themes and story lines of my books are based on my real-life experience in an interracial marriage. I also incorporate experiences my triplets went through growing up, like being treated as outsiders by kids who weren’t minorities or multiracial, or, now that they’re older, being labeled or avoided. My books have a message about not judging others before you get to know them. Also, by making the differences between races more exaggerated, I emphasize how, when you look past the tiny factor of race, we all share the same basic needs, desires, and cultures. The protagonists in books one and two of the Sea-anan Saga are children of an intergalactic marriage, so, just as in the original Star Wars Trilogy, the first book of the Oceanan Trilogy, A Seacat’s Love, goes back in time to tell the story of the parents who started it all.

But in her haste to escape Earth and the tragedy that befell her there she doesn't do enough homework about this new lawless land she is heading to.

The Triaxen is a unique look into another world and this challenges that will bring to people. It also mixes in a potentially deadly race and intrigue in the fact that those who were after Ancelin's family have followed her to Verrian.

Blossoming of the Witch - Julie Revezzo


The blossoming of Witch…. by Juli D. Revezzo

The Artist’s Inheritance, the first in my Antique Magic paranormal fantasy series came about from the idea of an artist’s obsession. But more than taking it from the artists’ point of view, I decided to go from the point of view of those that loved him. Particularly, his wife. What might that obsession look like to her? What effect might it have on her? And in a twist on the hero/damsel in distress motif, when it turned out there was a little more involved with this than just the creative spark, when the fingerprints of an angry ancestral goddess become evident, what would she do to save him from that goddess’ wrath?

Well, my Caitlin decided she had much to say about the subject, and even more she had her own “ghosts” to deal with. In one way, quite literally and in others, figuratively. The lessons the gods determined her husband had to learn became hers too and she blossomed under the lessons. Now, in Drawing Down the Shades, she’s a little more in tune with the otherworld. That’s not to say she still doesn’t have a lot to learn. So here, though she has more in her arsenal, the ghosts still throw curveballs at her. What impressions does an artist leave behind on his work when this life is done? What if the artist’s obsession transcends this life into the next? How can a soul like that be helped? These are the ongoing questions of the series.


Trevor and Caitlin were once happy newlyweds, profiting from Trevor's art. Until Trevor inherits his brother's house, and with it, his part of a family curse. Now, Caitlin will stop at nothing to save her beloved husband from insanity and suicide, even if it means she must embrace her destiny and become a witch.
The Artist’s Inheritance (Antique Magic, book one) is available at:

Drawing Down the Shades (Antique Magic, book two)

Business can be hell... Life is good at Starfort Collectibles until the owners, Caitlin and Trevor Fulmer, acquire a beautiful statuette with a murky past. Shortly thereafter, mysterious hauntings wreak havoc on the couple when a ghost in the attic threatens retribution. Caitlin presses her coven for help before the ghost succeeds in meting out deadly punishment—on Trevor.

Identity Crisis of the Paranormal Kind - C A Anderson


Please welcome C A Anderson as she talks about her scary road to publishing and an even scarier scenario for her paranormal novel.

Six years ago I started writing a novel based on a nightmare. For four years, I worked on the book rewriting eight times until doubt stopped me. Then I had an idea, I’ll write a bunch of short stories. To prove to myself if I am a writer or not. So I wrote and I ended up fourteen short stories. Now I have doubt with fourteen piles of papers on my art room floor. Not all can be best sellers, so I picked three books to start rewriting. My daughter, boyfriend, and friends encouraged me to keep writing. I buried myself in these books. I tracked every step each character took, what they said, what the weather was like, and what was being done to them. I wrote for months in my cave of isolation. From time to time, I let everyone know my progress, and they kept encouraging me. But doubt was still with me after every rewrite. It came to the point that one book had had all the rewriting it could take. Then fear showed up, time to have someone else read it, a professional. Doubt, fear, and I sent it to an editor.

For six weeks I agonized over why I hadn’t gotten the book back, yet dreading the day I do get the book back. What if the editor says its garbage? What if the editor says I’m a hack, a phony, and I better keep my day job. I continue to work on the two other books while I waited with doubt and fear. Then the day arrived, that email was there. It was staring at me, daring me to open it. I was paralyzed. That email had the power to destroy me. Blast my hopes and dreams into small twitching bits on the carpet. I took me hours to raise the courage to open it. By dinner time I was done making excuses, time to find my courage, and open the damn thing. It was the best letter I could ever asked for. It contained everything I need to hear about my book, what was wrong, and what was right. I wasn’t going to implode, I was elated! After four weeks of correcting and rewriting, I sent copies to my friends to read. They all liked the book and encouraged me to publish. Three weeks later I self-published my first book and kicked doubt in the face. Don’t listen to fear and doubt, publish your damn book!

Stuart Mason, a traveling salesman is trying to get home in a storm. He is grateful when he finds a vacancy at the end of the strip. The Deco Hotel is feeling generous and allows Stuart to enjoy the grandeur of a bye gone era. That is until the previous occupants of room 309 come back. Stuart is mistaken for a mob boss and is forced to play out the murders that took place over seventy years ago. Stuart talked his way into that room, now he has to talk his way out.

Mystical, Magical or Reality? New Caitlin Diggs reviewed!


When I began writing Caitlin Diggs's fourth novel, 9 Incarnate, I was fascinated with the idea of gods and aliens. Many who are familiar with Ancient Aliens are aware of the theories which propose aliens were mistaken by primitive cultures to be gods. Could this be the case with ancient Egypt? It would seem some kind of divine intervention or magic was cultivated to bring about one of the wonders of the world, the pyramids.

Could these magestic structures be the work of sole humans without the aid of precision capable tool making to not only cut the blocks perfectly but lift what appears to have been blocks of stone weighing megatons into place?

The answer may be contained in the pages of 9 INCARNATE when Agent Caitlin Diggs explores the mystery of the ancient world via the arrival of the Ennead, a group of gods claiming to be the ancient divine nine of Egypt. Well, except of course for Isis, who appears to have been residing within Caitlin due to a strange incident with a crystal.

The Wiccan FBI Agent Briana McFadden and fringe scientist Claude Brahms often spar in this book, each arguing for magic and science. McFadden believes nature was manipulated by the gods whereas Brahms believes the manipulation is only possible because of physics. In other words, blocks of stone didn't float into place by magical spells but because someone manipulated gravity via vibration.

I hope you'll come along for this crazy ride into Earth's past, present and probable future in 9 INCARNATE. See the first review below.

5 stars A very original fun read January 8, 2014 By Sheri A. Wilkinson

'Very original story line, I loved it! Caitlin Diggs is a preternatural investigator. She is investigating a murder and hears a voice in her head. She finds that she is one with the Goddess Isis. With the help of her friend Briana they set out to solve the crime and the mystery the Egyptian pyramids hold.

A fun read. I loved the blend of Egyptian Gods/Goddesses with the mortal world. Also the mystery and the originality of the story line. Caitlin was very likable, the situation she was put in, and the way she handled it was fascinating to watch unfold. A well written story I find all will enjoy.'
