Nicholas Lyons, chief physician to the Lyons clan of shape-shifters, has mourned the death of his promised lifemate until a rogue shapeshifter reports having seen her at an exotic animal sale.

Excerpt

Finding Eve by Rita Bay:

Nick tamped down his panic. Eve’s neurological tests, scans, X-rays and vital signs were all within normal limits, but his lifemate had remained unconscious for over twenty-four hours. “Tell me what happened again.” Marie sat with her head in her hands. She’d not left Eve’s side since her call after Eve’s collapse had alerted Anthony that something was very wrong. “We’d talked it out after you left. She was ready to make the change--had even picked out the dress she wanted to wear after she shifted. We were touching so she could feel what I was doing. She made the shift quickly. No problem. Then she just fell over. Like I said a dozen times before.” “She’d never expressed interest in shifting before. You sure you didn’t push her?” “No, damn it, I didn’t. She heard what you said about leaving Lyons’ Den. She didn’t want to leave. She thought if she shifted, you would allow her stay here. This is her home now.” He wanted to kick himself. Eve was sensitive, fragile even, since she’d returned. The last thing he should have mentioned was leaving Lyons’ Den. It was her home and he was going to take her away. He felt himself begin to shift. It was too sudden. He might not be able to control himself. “Quiet, Nicky. I was sleeping.” “Evie?” “Who else runs free in your head?” “You’ve been unconscious for more than a day.” “Been sleeping. Change hurt.” “I told Marie she shouldn’t have allowed you to change.” “Afraid you and Tony send me away. Marie gave me shiny dress.” “You always were an acquisitive kit. I will give you whatever clothing you wish.” “Wanted Marie’s dress. She is like me. She knows.”

“What does Marie know that I don’t?” “Hurt. Fear. Alone.” “I want that part of your past to go away. Since I thought you were dead, I felt the pain. Alone was the worst. I want things how they were with us before.” “Can’t. Not yet. Can’t speak in my human form. Don’t know why.” “What can I do to make it better, Evie?” “Find my past.”

Guest Post with Rita Bay

10 Things I Wish I Knew About Being an Author I Didn’t Know Before.

10 Things I Wish I Knew About Being an Author I Didn’t Know Before.

Thank you for inviting me, Amanda, to your Wicca Witch 4 Book Blog. You chose an intriguing topic that required some serious thinking to answer. My own experiences with publishers and publishing have been very positive. I didn’t submit my completed manuscripts to publishers for several years, even though I was a member of Romance Writers of America. During that time, I benefitted from the experiences of published authors before sticking my toes in the Publishing Sea. So maybe, I should call my post “10 Things I’ve Learned about Being an Author.”

After a mentor twisted my arm, I finally submitted two manuscripts (one paranormal, one historical) to different publishers and was contracted to both within two weeks. That led to nine books published in two years. This brings me to point #1 that I’ve learned.

You won’t be published, if you don’t submit. 

You could be sitting on a New York Times Best Seller (OR NOT!), but, if you don’t submit your manuscripts to publishers, you will never be published. More on that later.

Not all publishers are the same. 

I’m blessed with great publishers, though they are very different. Champagne Book Group, the sponsor for our tour and the publisher of my paranormals, is an independent publisher who has been successful in the business for a decade. My second publisher for my historicals is a huge well-known e-pub with loads of experience and expertise. Last year, I contracted my contemporary and short stories with a publishing company (about three years old) whose impressive owner/publisher I met at a conference. No regrets with any of them.

When in doubt, check them out. 

Check out publishers before you submit. If you’re not published, it’s difficult to walk away from a contract offer. All my publishers offer fair contracts, set high editorial standards, maintain contact with the authors, provide some level of print copies, have established distribution outlets, pay on time, and don’t charge for any services. On the down side, I have friends whose publishers shut down owing them big bucks. They still haven’t received the publication rights on their books.

The real work begins after your contract is signed. 

After you sign your contract, your book is no longer yours alone. Your publisher has rights to your book and will begin to prepare it for publication. The process can take anywhere from three months to almost a year. A long wait, for sure.

An editor should be your best friend. 

Editors know what the publisher wants, what will sell, and how to get your book ready for publication. My editor extraordinaire at Champagne, Nikki Andrews, has NEVER steered me wrong. Working together in a cooperative, not confrontational, manner produces a better product and allows the editor and author to develop a long-term working relationship.

You’re your own publicist. 

Both e-pubs and print pubs expect you to perform some level of marketing of your books yourself. Expect to develop a webpage, maintain a social media presence, and participate in publisher events. It doesn’t take a lot of money to share your books before your readers, but there is an investment in time.

There’s no welcome mat for divas. 

Publishers have responsibilities for acquisitions, contracts, editing, book prep, sales and distribution, and marketing. They have dozens, if not hundreds, of authors under contract. Don’t be the author that ruins their day without a REALLY good reason.

There are never enough hours in the day. 

Planning and setting priorities are crucial to continued success. An author must balance family and social lives, a day time job, and a writing career to avoid burnout.

Don’t expect to become a millionaire or even to quit your day job with a first book. 

An author builds readerships over time with multiple publications. With a few exceptions, success takes a lot of time, work, and dedication.


Seeing your book up for sale is one of the best feelings EVER. 

It doesn’t matter how many books an author has published, the feeling is still overwhelming. Knowing that readers will read and, I hope, enjoy my stories keeps me writing. Then, there’s always that next book waiting to be written.

Thank you so much for your time Rita! and I hope you can come back again sometime!

WW4BB Presents: Kristen Painter's HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN - chapter excerpt reveal!

17 Apr 2014.

Prologue

New Orleans, Louisiana, 2040
Why can’t we take the streetcar?” Walking home from church at night was always a little scary for Augustine, especially when they had to go past the cemetery.
“You know why,” Mama answered. “Because we don’t have money for things like that. Not that your shiftless father would help out. Why I expect anything from that lying, manipulative piece of…” She grunted softly and shook her head.
Augustine had never met his father, but from what Mama had told him, which wasn’t much, his father didn’t seem like a very nice man. Just once, though, Augustine would like to meet him to see what he looked like. Augustine figured he must look like his father, because he sure didn’t look like Mama. Maybe if they met, he’d also ask his father why he never came around. Why he didn’t want to be part of their family. Why Mama cried so much.
With a soft sigh, he held Mama’s hand a little tighter, moving closer to her side. Unlike him, Mama only had five fingers on each hand, not six. She didn’t have gray skin or horns like him, either. She didn’t like his horns much. She kept them filed down so his hair hid the stumps. He jammed his free hand into his jacket pocket, the move jogging him to the side a little.
“Be careful, Augustine. You’re going to make me trip.”
“Sorry, Mama.” The sidewalks were all torn up from the tree roots poking through them. The moon shone through those big trees with their twisty branches and clumps of moss, and cast shadows that looked like creatures reaching toward them. He shivered, almost tripping over one of the roots.
She jerked his arm. “Pay attention.”
“Yes, Mama.” But paying attention was what had scared him in the first place. He tried shutting his eyes, picking his feet up higher to avoid the roots.
Next thing he knew, his foot caught one of those roots and he was on his hands and knees, the skin on his palms burning from where he’d scraped them raw on the rough sidewalk. His knee throbbed with the same pain, but he wouldn’t cry, because he was almost nine and he was a big boy. Old enough to know that he must also control the powers inside him that wanted to come out whenever he felt angry or hurt or excited.
“Oh, Augustine! You ripped your good pants.” Mama grabbed his hand and tugged him to his feet.
“I’m sorry about my pants.” He stood very still, trying not to cause any more trouble. Mama got so angry, so fast. “My knee hurts.”
With a sigh, Mama crouched down, pulled a tissue from her purse, spit on it and began to dab at the blood. “It will be okay. It’s just a little scrape. And you heal… quickly.”
The dabbing hurt worse, but he kept quiet, biting at his cheek. He looked at his hands, opening his twelve fingers wide. Already the scrapes there were fading. It was because of his fae blood, which he wasn’t supposed to talk about. He dropped his hands and stared at the tall cemetery wall next to them. On the other side of that wall were a lot of dead people. In New Orleans, no one could be buried underground because of the water table. He’d learned that in school.
The wind shook the tree above their heads, making the shadows crawl toward them. He inched closer to her and pointed at the cemetery. “Do you think there’s ghosts in there, Mama?”
She stood, ignoring his pointing to brush dirt off his jacket. “Don’t be silly. You know ghosts aren’t real.”
The cemetery gates creaked. She turned, then suddenly put him behind her. Around the side of her dress, Augustine could see a big shape almost on them, smell something sour and sweaty, and hear heavy breathing. Mama reached for Augustine, jerking them both back as the man grabbed for her.
The man missed, but Mama’s heart was going thump, thump, thump. That was another fae thing Augustine wasn’t supposed to talk about, being able to hear extra-quiet sounds like people’s hearts beating.
“C’mere, now,” the man growled. Even in the darkness, Augustine’s sharp fae eyes could see the man’s teeth were icky.
Mama swung her purse at him. “Leave us alone!”
“Us?” The man grunted, his gaze dropping to Augustine. Eyes widening for a second, he snorted. “Your runt’s not going to ruin my fun.”
“I’m not a runt,” Augustine said. Fear made his voice wobble, but he darted out from behind his mother anyway, planting himself in front of her.
The man swatted Augustine away with a meaty hand.
Augustine hit the cemetery wall, cracking his head hard enough to see stars. But with the new pain came anger. And heat. The two mixed together like a storm in his belly, making him want to do… something. He tried to control it, but the man went after Mama next, grabbing her and pushing her to the ground. Then the man climbed on top of her.
She cried out and the swirling inside Augustine became a hurricane dragging him along in its winds. Without really knowing what he was doing, he leaped onto the man’s back. The hard muscle and bone he expected seemed soft and squishy. He grabbed fistfuls of the man’s jacket—but his hands met roots and dirt and shards of concrete instead.
Mama’s eyes blinked up at him, wide and fearful. She seemed a little blurry. Was he crying? And how was he seeing her when he was on the man’s back? And why had everything gone so quiet? Except for a real loud tha-thump, tha-thump, tha-thump, everything else sounded real far away. He pushed to his knees, expecting them to sting from his fall, but he felt nothing. And the man attacking his mother was somehow… gone.
“Don’t, Augustine.” She shook her head as she scrabbled backward. “Don’t do this.”
“Don’t do what, Mama?” He reached for her but the hand that appeared before him was too big. And only had five fingers. He stuck his other hand out and saw the same thing. “What’s happening to me, Mama?”
“Get out of him, Augustine.” She got to her feet, one trembling hand clutching the crucifix on her necklace. “Let the man go.”
He stood and suddenly he was looking down at his mother. Down. How was he doing that? He glanced at his body. But it wasn’t his body, it was the man’s.
“I don’t understand.” But he had an idea. Was this one of the powers he had? One of the things he was supposed to control? He didn’t know how to get out. Was he trapped? He only wanted to protect his mother, he didn’t want to be this man!
The storm inside him welled up in waves. The heat in his belly was too much. He didn’t understand this new power. He wanted to be himself. He wanted to be out. Panic made bigger waves, hot swells that clogged his throat so he couldn’t take deep breaths. The thumping noise got louder.
The man’s hands reached up to claw at Augustine, at his own skin.
Mama backed away, her fingers in the sign of the cross. He cried out to her for help. He was too hot, too angry, too scared—
A loud, wet pop filled his ears and he fell to his hands and knees again, this time covered in sticky red ooze and smoking hunks of flesh. The thumping noise was gone. Around him was more sticky red, lumps of flesh and pieces of white bone. All he could think about was the time he and Nevil Tremain had stuffed a watermelon full of firecrackers. Except this was way worse. And blowing up the watermelon hadn’t made him feel like throwing up. Or smelled like burnt metal. He sat back, wiped at his face and eyes and tried to find his mother. She was a few feet away, but coming closer.
“You killed that man.” She stood over him looking more angry than afraid now. “You possessed that man like a demon.” She pointed at him. “You’re just like your father, just like that dirty fae-blooded liar.”
Augustine shook his head. “That man was hurting you—”
“Yes, you saved me, but you took his life, Augustine.” She looked around, eyes darting in all directions. “Sturka,” she muttered, a fae curse word Augustine had once gotten slapped for saying.
“I didn’t mean to, I was trying to help—”
“And who’s next? Are you going to help me that way too someday?”
He was crying now, unable to help himself. “No, Mama, no. I would never hurt you.”
She grabbed him by his shirt and yanked him to his feet. “Act human, not like a freak, do you understand? If people could see what you really looked like…” Fear clouded her eyes.
He nodded, sniffling, hating the smell of the blood he was covered in. He didn’t want to be a freak. He really didn’t. “I can act human. I promise.”
She let go of his shirt, her lip slightly curled as she looked him over. “This was your father’s blood that caused this. Not mine.”
“Not yours,” Augustine repeated. Mama looked human but was part smokesinger, something he knew only because he’d overheard an argument she’d had with his father on the phone once. He’d learned other things that way, too. Like that his father was something called shadeux fae. But not just part. All of him. And he’d lied to Mama about that. Used magic to make Mama think he was human. To seduce her.
“I never want to hear or see anything fae ever again or I will put you out of my house. I live as human and while you’re under my roof, so will you. Am I clear?”
The thought of being without her made his chest ache. She was all he had. His world. “Yes, Mama.”
But keeping his fae side hidden was impossible and five years later, put him out is exactly what she did.

WW4BB & BNT Presents: A Review & Giveaway of Opposites & The Library by T.M. Smith




In the year 2081 our planet survived global warming of an apocalyptic scale. When the dust settled and the water receded Dr. Anthony Smith, one of only a few hundred survivors of GWI, started society anew. Having come to the conclusion that injudicious breeding played a huge role in the destruction of Earth as we knew it in the twenty first century, he worked closely with other survivors to isolate the Dionysus gene. This gene has the ability to manipulate human DNA to ensure that all male children be born gay, and all female children be born lesbians. A new society is born. 

In the year 2300 Dr. Smith’s descendants are ushering in the twenty fourth century having maintained control of the government that still rules society. Twins Aiya and Aiyan are preparing to meet their matches and take control of House Gaeland, the current ruling House. But not everything is as it seems. 

Love is Love.. it knows no gender and doesn’t conform to restrictions and boundaries. Aiyan has found his soul mate in Kaden, the prince of House Devi that he is matched with and eventually marries. But when the person Aiya falls in love with tests the boundaries put in place after GWI, all hell breaks loose. And in the midst of one secret unraveling, another will emerge. There is a growing anomaly that threatens to destroy over two hundred years of progression. This anomaly is known as Opposites.

*WARNING* Opposites is a majorly M/M New Adult novel that contains explicit sexual content and relationships between gay, lesbian and straight couples.

My Review

Opposites by T.M. Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! when I read the synapses for this book I was totally intrigued, I don't usually read books like this but its unusualness is right us my ally. I love books that take people out of their comfort zones and totally shake them up and this book does that! while at the same time as giving you the sense that your in a safe and nurturing environment.


T.M. Smith is defiantly a creative and very brilliant writer, I was captivated by the characters and the story from the start! The idea that a world could exist where same sex couples are the norm was an amazing and ingenious idea to me, I of course being an opposite (a person who likes boys) would be considered an outcast but that is ok as this world was just too cool, as were the people in it.


I did have a little trouble at first keeping up with all the names of all the different couples and the different people as I found the names were a little too similar to each other. I totally got why the twins had similar names but thought the rest of the names all being alike was just over kill and made keeping track of who was who confusing.


I loved the storyline and so enjoyed reading this book, my favourite couples were Raven and Tanis and Aiyan and Kayden. I loved Raven and Tanis because they found love with each other against all odds, and Aiyan and Kayden were so fun and full of love and laughter.


This is defiantly a book for mature audiences only as it had a lot of Sexual Content but it is worth the read if you are willing.










The Library, an Opposites Novella, by TM Smith
Three gay couples run amuck in this short story where clothing, beds, even four walls are all optional! 

Want to know what happened that night in the library?
Cirian and Rian had a fight in the library and Rian ends up naked on the desk, on his back, at Cirian's mercy. 

Want to know how far things went with ice cream?
A romantic evening by the fire feeding his husband ice cream leads to a lot more than heavy petting for Aiyan and Kaden.

Want to know what was going on when those birds fled?
Travelling hundreds of miles, battling the rebels and then travelling back to House Gaeland will take it out of you. But when Tanis wants something, he takes it. Raven is about to be bent over a tree!

A Note from the Author: I've taken three scenes from Opposites that were cut short and elaborated on the shenanigans that ensued. I also focused more in the beginning on the relationship between Cirian and Rian, to give readers a chance to know them and their inner workings better. 

**Warning, The Library is a novella set in the same world as Opposites. It's an adult dystopian M/M novella that includes consenting and explicit sexual relationships between gay couples**

My Review

The Library by T.M. Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow talk about steamy! In this short we get to see a more inside look at some scenes from the Opposite, centred mostly around the twins fathers Cirian and Rian. We also get to see more from some of the other couples as well as hear some more in depth discussions that were cut short in Opposites.


I really loved this story, it has a lot of love and passion and you can tell as it fairly drips from the very pages. T.M. Smith is brilliant and I can't wait for more to these stories.

Kristia Tostenson prefers Earl Grey to Grey Goose and book clubs to nightclubs, but when she transfers from her one-stoplight town to Cardiff University in Wales she falls in love with Ull Myhr. Her new boyfriend isn’t exactly what she was expecting. He’s an honest to goodness Norse God - an immortal assassin fated to die at Ragnarok, the battle destined to destroy Asgard and Earth. Kristia’s crazy visions are the only thing that can save their realms. Her orderly life just got very messy.

Before finding domestic bliss in suburbia, ST Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and Europe… where she became overly fond of the musical Cats. Her love of Scandinavian culture and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired the ELSKER series. She hopes her characters make you smile and that one day pastries will be considered a health food.

Abused wife, Jill Thompson knows she has to get out of her bad marriage. Like yesterday. With no money, no job and no friends, this small town girl can’t find a safe harbor. But when she sees a news report that The Program, a US military base, is seeking women to be matches for their genetically enhanced soldiers, she sees her opportunity. If she is lucky enough to be a match, her snake-mean husband, Jack, won’t be able to find her, let alone hurt her ever again.

Rowan Blacker, is the only soldier of his cohort to request a breed match. He’s the newest soldier on campus and thanks to his genetic defect, he feels like an outcast.

The woman they claim is his perfect DNA match, is a scared shell of a woman carrying a trunkful of emotional baggage. Against their better judgment, they move in together and as Jill shakes off the shackles of abuse, their attraction ignites. 

My Review

Desperate Match by Lynne Silver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Awesome Series! I love these stories! Lynne is an amazing author and each and everyone of her stories is unique and full of love and passion. this one touched my heart again and again as Jill and Rowan found love in one another and the strength that all couples aspire to be.

Jill knew it was only a matter of time before her bastard of a husband killed her in one of his rages. 6 years of marriage and the beatings have only gotten worse not better. When Jill learns of the Program Solders and the breeding and matching program she applys secretly hoping upon hope that she will be a match and that she can escape the horror that is her life.

Hoping to fit in better by being matched Rowan is the only one that requests a breed match, not only is he the new kid on base but thanks to a genetic defect he always feels like an outcast. When he meets his match she is a far cry from the other matches he has met though, instead she is a scared shell of a woman running for her life.

Rowan can't help but feel he must protect her and they decide to make a go of it and move in together. with a crazy ex, enhanced solders, and a media circus what could go wrong?

I so loved this story and I really loved the character of Rowan. He was so sweet and kind and sexy! I would defiantly recommend this book! TBR it today!
