Up for grabs to one lucky winner ...

an ecopy of my fantasy novel, Eye of the Soul, AND a small swag packet of all my titles.

Thanks for stopping by, & best of luck!

Eye of the Soul 
Pool of Souls #1
Fantasy, Adult
Release Date: October 7, 2013
Publisher:  J. Taylor Publishing


That should be Hyla’s first thought as her people are chained and imprisoned for no imaginable reason.

Instead, Hyla finds herself traveling through a land void of Natives, with human soldiers pillaging in desperate pursuit of her, and in search of the mystical Pool of Souls—home to the one man who can save her people.

Or so she believes.

Led by her faith in the deity Fadir, Hyla is met along her journey by Jadon—a human male and fierce King’s warrior, and his childhood best friend Conlin—one of the few Natives aware of his Fadir-given Talents.

Protected by Jadon, guided by Conlin, and with an unfailing belief in the purpose of her pilgrimage, Hyla carries on.

Like her, though, another searches for the Pool, and should he gain access first, everyone she loves, and everything she knows, could be lost.

Ty Burdin tears off demon heads. No lie. #UF #Giveaway

I am thrilled to have Alex Nader, wordsmith extraordinaire , and his muse stop by today for the Beasts of Burdin blog tour!

I had a few questions for Mr. Ty Burdin himself, and Alex's muse was kind enough to indulge my curiosity.

Welcome Alex, his muse, & Ty!!


So, Ty—is that short for something?—how in God’s name did you become a demon hunter?

Yeah, Ty is short for Tyler Burdin, but I’m not much on formal names, so Ty’ll do. Demon hunting’s a family business. You could say I was born in to it.

Why a fedora?

Why is the sky blue? Hell, if I know, it just happened that way.

Tell us about your first kill.

That was so many years ago, it’s all a blur now. There was a demon, I imagine I shot it a couple times, and then I took its head off. It’s pretty much been rinse, wash, repeat since then.

Nora. She is faithful enough to move half-way across the country with you. Is there something you’re not telling us?

Well, if I told you, that would successfully undo my not telling you, wouldn’t it?

Seriously, how did you know it was the dog? Do you secretly hear animals’ thoughts?

I have a knack for making guesses at historically opportune times. Sometimes it works in my favor and sometimes I just end up with a new scar to brag about.

And finally, Jack or Johnnie?

As a true fan of scotch, Johnnie would be first choice, but as long as there’s a proof on the label, I’ll take a double.


Beasts of Burdin
Urban Fantasy
Release Date: February 10, 2014

Demon hunter Ty Burdin hung up his guns, knife, trench coat and fedora a year ago. Bags packed, hands washed of all demon politics, he’s done. Forever.

In fact, to get far far away, he dragged Nora, his rockabilly secretary, from Miami to the Tennessee mountains where he’s lived a life of peace—if peace can be defined as drowning in scotch and taking private eye jobs to keep the lights on. Jobs for real people. Not demons.

No demons.

He’s retired from that. Remember?

Demon hunters aren’t a dime a dozen, though, and when Ty’s brother asks him for a favor—just one—what’s a brother to do? Agreeing to take down one hillbilly demon shouldn’t take that long. In. Decapitate. Out. Favor complete. Back to the office where Nora and his bottle of whiskey are waiting.

Unfortunately for Ty, staying retired doesn’t seem to be in the cards, and an avalanche of bad luck draws him right back to an agency he despises and the career that nearly cost him his sanity.

This time, Ty has no way out and will have to face his own demons just to survive.



“Ty Burdin! Answer the phone already. It’s your brother.” The voice comes from the next room in a tone usually used by stress-fried mothers, not twenty-something-year-old receptionists. The harsh words crack through my whiskey-soaked brain like someone snapped a bullwhip in my ear. I pick my head up off the desk and wipe the drool from my mouth, as she bursts in the door.

“He’s adopted, and good morning,” I say, opening the drawer to my desk and digging through it.

“It’s not morning. It’s past noon, you lazy drunk.” Her tone is accusing, but there’s a slight smile to her ruby red lips. I really do think Nora gets enjoyment from trying to keep me in line. Her rockabilly style, all tattoos and polkadots, might scare some people off, but honestly, I think it’s kind of cool.

“Fine, I was wrong about the time, but you’re wrong, too,” I say.

“Oh, yeah? How’s that?” Nora kicks her hip to the side and props a hand on her leopard print skirt.

“I’m not drunk. I’m hungover.” I pull out a flask full of scotch and take a long drink. “I’m working on getting back on track, though.” I tip the flask toward her.

“I swear someone’s gonna find you in a ditch one day.” Her voice has a trace of concern, but it’s mostly drowned out by annoyance.

“In my line of work, that’s almost a guarantee. Now, can you tell me why you disturbed my ugly sleep?” Ugly sleep is a gross understatement. No amount of alcohol ever seems to drown out the vision of the young, innocent girl burned into my memory. The scene is even more ominous in my dreams than it was in real life.

A thunderclap breaks the silence of my memories. Nora stares down at me, hands stuck together. “Wake up, drunkard. Hartnet’s been trying to reach you on the phone for the past fifteen minutes.”

The pocket of my jacket buzzes, probably been ringing the entire time. Nora walks over to where it hangs by the door and withdraws the phone. “Jesus, Ty. You’ve got four missed calls, ten new messages, and over twenty emails. Do you ever check this thing?”

“No.” I have the phone, but honestly, I hate it.
Nora sets the still ringing phone on my desk, puts her hands on her hips and, using only facial expressions, guilts me into picking up.

“Hello,” I say into the phone that smells of smoke. I use my free hand to dig out cigarettes and a lighter.

“Ty! Finally, man, where you been?” Hartnet asks.

“Oh, you know me. I just got back from hiking the Swiss Alps with Edmund Hillary.”

“Real funny, Ty, but I imagine you’ve been spending more time with Jim or Jack.”

“God, no, I hate southern whiskey,” I say. “I prefer a fine scotch, Macallan to be specific.”

“You prefer whatever’s in front of you as long as there’s a proof label on the bottle,” Hartnet says.

I don’t have any argument for that. “So, what do you want?”


About Mr. Nader

Alex lives in the tourist infested hills of east Tennessee with his amazing wife/muse and three superb children.

When he’s not doing that he’s working at a bookstore and occasionally he jots a few words down. He’s a big fan of good music, good storytelling, and mixed martial arts. 

He once wrote a short story about pirates to his wife via text message that blossomed into a full length novel and never stopped after that.

Storm Without End #Fantasy #Excerpt

Storm Without End – Promo Blitz
By R.J. Blain
Epic Fantasy
Date Published: November 10, 2013

Kalen’s throne is his saddle, his crown is the dirt on his brow, and his right to rule is sealed in the blood that stains his hand. Few know the truth about the one-armed Rift King, and he prefers it that way. When people get too close to him, they either betray him or die. The Rift he rules cares nothing for the weak. More often than not, even the strong fail to survive.

When he’s abducted, his disappearance threatens to destroy his home, his people, and start a hopeless and bloody war. There are many who desire his death, and few who hope for his survival. With peace in the Six Kingdoms quickly crumbling, it falls on him to try to stop the conflict swiftly taking the entire continent by storm.

But something even more terrifying than the machinations of men has returned to the lands: The skreed. They haven’t been seen for a thousand years, and even the true power of the Rift King might not be enough to save his people — and the world — from destruction.


“Be welcomed to the Spire of the Eternal, Breton, Guardian of the King. What do you seek?”
“Knowledge and advice,” he admitted, unable to stop from frowning. “Is Crysallis here?”
“My sister walks the world. I may be young, but perhaps I can help?” Asaleese cocked her head to the side. Without looking away from him, she reached up and threw back the hood of her cloak to reveal her short-cropped, black hair. “Come, and be as one of us for as long as you can.”
Breton shoved his hand in his pocket and pulled out the pouch he’d taken from the corpses on the plains. “Do you know of the outsiders?”
“I did know of them. You will be pleased, I think, to learn that their voices do not pollute the song of our ancestors. One remains, but flees up the trails in fear of the one who follows. I feel for their horses, wretched though they might be. I do not think he will find them worthy.”
Instead of replying, the witch gestured for him to follow. Stairs circled the entry niche’s walls to vanish through a hole far above.
Breton swallowed back a sigh and began to climb. “I haven’t seen Crysallis in quite a while.”
“She wanders far,” Asaleese replied.
“It seems like a rather contagious disease. I don’t suppose you have a cure for it, do you?” Breton asked in a dry tone.
“You’ve been keeping company with Maiten again, haven’t you?”
“Not for half a year or more. He’s in Mithrias.”
“He’ll be disappointed to learn of all of the excitement he has missed, then.” Asaleese guided him to the next level and sprawled on a stone bench covered with pillows. A thick carpet of furs covered the stone, and another bench lined the far wall. “Sit. Be comfortable. A drink? Perhaps I can tempt you with some Hessis for when we’ve finished talking about what has brought you up here.”
“I might be tempted,” Breton admitted, flashing the witch a smile. “It may be a while until we cross paths again.”
“Then allow me to give you a fitting farewell until we meet again. I, for one, will miss your skill in the spearing caves.” Asaleese sighed. “Do try not to get yourself killed chasing after that foal of yours.”
“And here I thought you’d miss me for other reasons,” Breton replied, feigning disappointment.
“We’ll discuss this at length — later. Surely that pouch isn’t all that brought you up the Eternal Spire?” The witch held out her hand. Breton dropped the pouch into her palm and sat on the floor beside her.
“It did, in part. What’s in it?”
“You haven’t opened it?”
Breton shook his head. “They had poisoned their weapons.”
“What do you think is within?”
“The Three Sisters,” Breton replied with a cringe. “I was hoping it wasn’t.”
“You’re wise not to open it then.” Asaleese slipped a finger under the string tying the pouch closed and opened it. Three sachets fell out into the palm of her other hand. “It seems your guess may have been correct.” Setting two of the smaller pouches aside, she opened the third and dipped her finger in. She lightly touched the white powder to the tip of her tongue. “Vellest. It seems it is as you feared.”

Finding Lichgates - Portals to another world #Fantasy #Giveaway

Heyo! S. M. Boyce here. I’m on this cozy blog today as part of my Finding Lichgates Blog Tour. My hosts are so awesome for letting me show you the stories of how some of my fans found Lichgates and the other books in the Grimoire Saga.

So, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the series, I think I should explain what a lichgate is. A lichgate is a portal that ties our world to the terrifying and beautiful world in my Grimoire Saga called Ourea. Lichgates can be found in remote places, and when you walk through a lichgate, the land you cross into is not what you would see if you’d simply walked around the portal.

For many fans, stumbling upon the first book in the Grimoire Saga is much like stumbling through a lichgate. That is why this tour is all about the fans and how they found their first lichgate into the world of the Grimoire Saga.

To see more Finding Lichgates Stories check out the blog tour schedule.


Meet Evelyn. This is her Finding Lichgates Story:

I started reading because Faith all but threatened (okay, maybe she DID threaten) bodily harm if I didn't read. It was a good thing she did because I was hooked from the first paragraph. I have spent my whole life opening doors expecting to see a magical realm on the other side. How could I not love Kara's story?


Kara Magari is about to discover a beautiful world full of terrifying things—Ourea.

Kara, a college student still reeling from her mother’s recent death, has no idea the hidden world of Ourea even exists until a freak storm traps her in a sunken library. With no way out, she opens an ancient book of magic called the Grimoire and unwittingly becomes its master, which means Kara now wields the cursed book’s untamed power. Discovered by Ourea’s royalty, she becomes an unwilling pawn in a generations-old conflict—a war intensified by her arrival. In this world of chilling creatures and betrayal, Kara shouldn’t trust anyone… but she’s being hunted and can’t survive on her own. She drops her guard when Braeden, a native soldier with a dark secret, vows to keep her safe. And though she doesn’t know it, her growing attraction to him may just be her undoing.

For twelve years, Braeden Drakonin has lived a lie. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. Though he begins to care for this human girl, there is something he wants more. He wants the Grimoire.

Welcome to Ourea, where only the cunning survive.

BIG NEWS!! The first in my 'Means of Mercy' #Historical #Romance series is contracted!!

Roane Publishing has offered me a contract for Love's Sorrow, the first book in my Means of Mercy series! 

Love's Sorrow is an historical romance and the first manuscript I ever attempted. Right after the new year I decided to brush the dust off the CD it was stored on and give it a peek. 


Talk about an amateur attempt at telling a story! I laughed although the writing itself sicked me. I'll simply say that I now know exactly why Donald Maass had rejected the manuscript YEARS AGO due to it being "sloppy and Austin-esque".

At the time, I had thought he didn't know what he was talking about. At the time, I didn't know who Donald Maass IS in the agent world. Talk about a major face-palm.

After him-hauling for a bit, I sent Roane's acquisitions editor my pitch - and she simply said, "I WANT. Please and thank you."


The cover and official blurb are under way and will be shared as soon as possible, because here's the biggest news ...

It's set to release April 21st! 

Yes, April 21st - of THIS YEAR! Needless to say, I'll be in the editing cave every spare second my little yummies allow.

 If you're interested in sharing in the cover reveal which will take place on Monday, March 24th, please fill out the following information. I would love to have you join in my dork dancing celebration!!

What's Your First Stop On The Movie Wheel? #TensList with K.E. Shade #Historical #Romance

I'm taking a break today from my Writerly Wisdom Wednesday in order to showcase a new release (with a rockin' purdy!!) from my friend, K.E. Shade. 

I asked her for a Top Tens list of favorite romantic movies or books, so she gave me five of each! 

Without further gibbering from me, here's the lovely lady.


I'm odd when it comes to romance. I've never been one to watch a true 'chick flick'. I'm an action kind of gal. Not that full on sappy doesn't get to me, it's just not my first stop on the movie wheel. I was asked for a top ten of movies or books but I couldn't make a list that long, really. Some books it's been a whole since I read them and I read a broad base of genres to do that. So I decided to go with five of each—and put them in no particular order.


Okay, bear with me on this choice. For me, the romantic element transcends the bond between a male and female fornicating. Sure, there's a small love story in it between and man and a woman but I'm not going to hone in on that. Instead, I'm going to talk briefly about the brothers bonded by childhood, not by bloodlines. Saul and Chris.
Two orphans that learn the ways of assassination. The bond between the two men cannot be broken, even when their mentor Elliot tries to pit them against each other. When one dies, the other avenges him.

That's right, I'm putting this one in the mix. Smexy werewolves and a love that is timeless. That's what I love about this one. Jem and Sean have loved each other for centuries. Each rebirth has them searching for each other again. Sean knows his mate by the bond he shares. She needs to be awakened on who she is but it doesn't come without difficulty.

Still, nothing stops their love. Don't believe me? Read the other books Ms Belfield wrote with these two characters. I dare you not to tear up reading Blue Moon.

Honestly, she's my all-time favorite romance writer. I just picked this one out of thin air. The cover is awful now. I had this one in paperback and it was the classic painted model cover with the bare chest. That's hot! This is a story about a pirate who steals the future wife of his brother to spite him. He never touches her virginity at first but she's a smart woman and tempts him, even after he surrenders her over to his brother.
It's truly touching to see the two fall in love. I'm sorry I can't recall more of the story as it's been a long time since I read it. Heck, if you love historical writing I'll always recommend Connie Mason. Most of the women are strong-head and the men are flummoxed by the females they 'think' they're controlling. Yeah, that's why I love this author so much. The women aren't doormats.

I can't just pick one. All the men are just so smexy and know their mate when they see her. How the women are the ones who ground the men from turning full vampire is so darky romantic. My heart flutters when a couple is one with each other and their need isn't lopsided.

Alright, I'm just going to start with this one because Kisten is starting to get Rachel hot and bothered. I loved there interaction and when he was killed off, I was curled up in a ball sobbing on the floor. How could Kim do that to us fans? Rachel was finally getting a  good relationship since her douche human boyfriend Nick plays his disappearing act.

A close second to Rachel's love life is Trent. I know she wants to bake his cookies. They've got a great chemistry, something completely different from her other relationship. That's actually a good dynamic to Harrison's Hollow series.Nick the douchebag, Kisten the hot and sexy vampire, and Trent that make Rachel's blood boil in more than one way.  We'll leave Al the demon out of this mess. He's more of like the creepy Uncle than a sexual interest.



Never mind that Russell Crowe is just plain intense in this movie as Maximus. I find the gladiator thing just damn sexy though, as the movie dictates along with history, most were slaves. We have a Roman soldier—General in fact—betrayed by an ambitious Caesar. Maximus has, or had, a family. Always with him are little statues that he always says a prayer over that they remain safe until he returns.
Of course, tragically, his wife and son are brutally murdered thanks to  Commodus all because Maximus refuses to follow a Caesar with no moral compass. Maximus is bent on revenge not only for what happened to his family but to what happened to Caesar Marcus Aurelius.
What I loved about this movie was the imagery throughout of golden fields, hinting at the afterlife. The end where Maximus is on the cusp of death and see his wife and son waiting for him before he snaps back to the land of the living. The passion on which he trudged to get his ultimate revenge just endears this film to me and, in its own way, has a nice romantic touch.

Brutally murdered along with his girlfriend, Eric Draven comes back from the dead to avenge her death. The graphic novel is a classic and if you haven't cracked it open, I suggest you secure a copy. It's a touch different from this movie.
Like Gladiator, you get glimpses into Eric and Shelly's love affair. Except this is every time Eric touches something that contains a strong memory. The dark images in the movie are really intense. Just when you think they everyone responsible for his and Shelly's death has gone to the grave themselves, one more task needs to be done. Sarah, a little girl that looked up to them both, is held hostage.
While Draven loses his immortality when the crow who pulled him from the grave is injured, he still has one thing up his sleeve to kill the man responsible for the whole thing. While he died right away, Shelly suffered and the cop who stayed by his side harbored all that pain. Memories are a strong emotion, much like true love. Draven rests at the end with his one and only love.

Romantic comedies are their own breed. We have the funny, near slapstick, antics. Annie isn’t really looking for love, mainly because her life isn't exactly in order. In fact, she's bitter and on the fringe of losing her best friend to the institution of marriage. She meets Rhodes, a cop, and they start to have a quirky relationship but Annie can't handle it so … she runs far away.
When, through her best friend, she starts to realize that she can't keep running from every relationship, she fights to get back Rhodes. So it's mostly a happily for now type of thing. The growth alone of where she started to where she ended up is great. She's still imperfect but willing to give what she feels for Rhodes a chance.

Oh yes, the classic Disney version. This one chokes me up every time and I KNOW what's going to happen. Belle sacrifices her freedom to free her father from the beast's clutches. But really. I think she was trying to get away from Gaston. This guy is unbelievably full of himself. I bet he French kisses his mirror.
Through the enchantment of the house, all the living knick knacks do their best to get the two together. Ulterior motive perhaps? If that rose in the glass dies, they're trapped too.
That last moment when the final petal falls when he saves her life. Her grief over losing the beauty within the beast is classic flood-inducing sobbing. But, come on, at the end when the Prince turns around and he looks more pretty than Belle. OMG.

Or, really, Firefly. In particular, I'm concentrating on the connection between Mal and Inara. She's a companion and he's essentially a space pirate. Together they fight crime! No, not really. The tension between the characters is of the hot and bothered kind. I think she does her companionships to irk him and his jealousy is priceless. The man loves her and won't say it but he's there to defend her at every turn.


Well there you have it. This list was harder than I thought to come up with. It's not that I don't read or watch movies. It's a matter of going through the catalog in my head and picking which one works for me in this context.
As I think on the romantic things I've listed, a good bit of them are similar to my latest release Muir Bhreatan. It's got the romantic element but so many other layers as well. Thanks, Terri, for giving me this challenge. I really had fun creating this list. J
