The Sand Prince New Release

The Sand Prince New Release

★ ☆  FREE to KU! The Sand Prince: An Epic Fantasy★ ☆ 

Two worlds, divided by a door.

On the war-ravaged demon world of Eriis, Hellne, the fierce young queen, fights to keep her people alive...

On the green and gentle human world of Mistra, the demons have faded into myth. Only a handful of old men and children still guard The Door between the worlds...

Rhuun, the Prince of Eriis, uncovers a forgotten book written by a human, sparking an obsession with the other world. When he is forced to flee Eriis, he must escape through The Door or pay the price in blood.

The humans of Mistra are not what Rhuun was expecting—and one insufferable young woman in particular is about to find out that the demons of Eriis are not mythological after all... 

In Kim Alexander’s debut novel she weaves a witty, epic fantasy brimming with diverse characters and plenty of intrigue.

Kim Alexander grew up in the wilds of Long Island, NY and slowly drifted south until she reached Key West. After spending ten rum-soaked years as a DJ in the Keys, she moved to Washington DC, where she lives with two cats, an angry fish, and her extremely patient husband. She began writing when she ran out of authors to interview (and they pulled the plug on her channel, Sirius XM Book Radio.)
Kim was in her twenties when she finally read a book not prominently featuring spaceships and/or wizards. Turns out Jane Austen was pretty funny!
THE SAND PRINCE is Kim's first novel and begins a fantasy series called THE DEMON DOOR. Her husband tells her she needs to write at least ten more books if she intends to retire in Thailand, so thank you for your patronage. Please visit her at

Keeper of Dragons (New Release!)

Keeper of Dragons 

New Release


How would you react if you found out you were a dragon? 

Not just any dragon-the one who was fated to save all that was deemed true. 

On his 18th birthday, Cole’s once humdrum life spirals into an uncontrollable battle for life or death. First, he learns that his family isn't really his own and his birth parents are actually dragons. With that legacy comes a special calling; devoting an eternity to protecting all true beings from creatures bent on controlling the Earth and bringing an end to dragons. 

As the newly-minted Prince of Ochana, Cole is also the Keeper of Dragons and his first task is to keep the nefarious farro-fallen fairies-at bay. With no formal training, no control of his mahier-dragon magic, and fear like he’s never experienced before, will Cole be able to reach outside of his human side and embrace his destiny in time to defeat the farros?

J.A. Culican is a teacher by day and a writer by night. She lives in New Jersey with her husband of eleven years and their four young children. She spend her evenings at home, with her family watching Harry Potter and Star Wars. When not home you can find her at the soccer or field hockey fields, rooting her children on.
J.A. Culican’s inspiration to start writing came from her children and their love for all things magical. Bedtime stories turned to reality after her oldest daughter begged her for the book from which her stories of dragons came from. In turn, the series The Keeper of Dragons was born.

An Unhuman Journey (Blog Tour Review)

An Unhuman Journey 

(Blog Tour Review)

Today we feature author, Candace Blevins and her new release, An Unhuman Journey. I enjoyed this novel and I'm thrilled to share my thoughts. Please, feel free to say hello in the comments and let us know what you think of the synopsis, cover, and teaser!

There's a war brewing between good and evil, and the chess pieces are being set...
Aaron has gone missing, and Mordecai has taken over Kirsten's training. She's learning by leaps and bounds under the god-of-old's not-so-gentle tutelage, but with Nathan in charge of Drake Security during The Dragon King's unplanned absence, everything is upside down.

The evil Celrau vampires were banned from creating new offspring, but they've bargained for permission to do so in the Underworld, where the Concilio has no authority. As part of their army-building, the Celrau vampires kidnap Kirsten and take her to the Underworld with the intention of making her one of them. Alone in another realm, Kirsten must form unexpected alliances to survive a most Unhuman Journey.

Join bestselling author Candace Blevins on a thrilling adventure into the critically acclaimed sequel to Only Human.


“I have a proposition for you.”
I once again held my tongue and didn’t remind him there’d be no sex. “I’m listening.”
“I’d like to have full access to you from an as-yet-to-be-specified Thursday evening until Monday morning, for which I will pay you ten thousand dollars.”

I opened my mouth to turn him down, but he held a hand up. “No safeword. No limits. I’ll do whatever I want, however I want, with the understanding you’ll be rested, healed, and back to normal by seven o’clock Monday morning.”

An Unhuman Journey is a fantastic adventure novel that intrigued me from the very first line. I mean, who enjoys being whipped? Such a concept made me settle into my chair and prepare for many hours of incredibly well-written characters, dialogue, and plot. The main character, Kirsten is awesome. She is strong, and yet very relatable. Her paranormal journey in this story is quick-paced and suspenseful. Not only is there a multitude of action, but there is a delicious amount of passionate scenes that are not for the faint of heart. I believe that anyone that enjoys a perfect blend of fantasy, romance, and action will adore Kirsten and her unhuman journey.

An Interview with Author, Sydney Aaliyah Michelle

An Interview with Author, Sydney Aaliyah Michelle

Today we welcome a fantastic contemporary romance author, Sydney Aaliyah Michelle. Let's pick her brain and learn about her inspiration, writing advice, and more!

Who is Sydney Aaliyah Michelle?
I am a Sports Romance writer, voracious reader, tattoo lover, and movie fanatic who hails from Texas. After surviving 5 1/2 years living in China, I found the courage to finally pursue my passion and become a writer.

What is the best thing about being a writer?
The best thing about being a writer is hearing from someone who has read and loved my book. I love the when a reader tells me one of my books or characters touched them. With Anxious Love, I already had a woman tell me how she was a victim of sexual assault and my main character Leah was the first character she could relate too. My favorite reviews are the ones that evoke emotions, good or bad, in my readers. I would write even if no one bought my books, but I am so grateful that people do.

How do you start writing your book?  Outlines or just let it flow?
I am a plotter. I write character sketches, setting sketches. I create a scene list and try an assign a motive for each scene before I start writing. Once all that is done, I sit down and write. I try and stay as flexible as my brain will allow during the first drafts, so I give myself permission to create scenes or characters as I write if the need arises, but the planning is so important for me to get the words on the page.

Compared to when you first started writing, have you noticed any big changes in your writing style or how you write compared from then to now? I am more knowledge all around. I write better now and I know the elements that are needed to make a good story. Before I just wrote, but I am a little more systematic about it. I am also more comfortable writing certain scenes that used to make me uncomfortable such a sex scenes and creating a setting for my novels that the readers can picture.

What are some of your favorite pastimes? Do you have any hobbies or collections?
 I love tattoos. I have 7 body parts tattooed. I love to travel. I’ve been blessed to visit over 30 countries. I love food. I have a restaurant/chef bucket list on my blog.
My goal is to visit the restaurants of all the Top Chef winners. I’ve visited 8 so far.

What has been your biggest adventure to date?
My biggest adventure was living in China for over 5 ½ years. I lived in Shenzhen and Shanghai running a golf academy.  After running a business in a foreign country, I feel like I can accomplish anything. It was definitely the hardest things I have ever done, but the challenge made me confident in pursuing my dreams and becoming a writer. 

What book/author inspired you to start writing? 
My favorite author is Stephen King, but every book I read continues to inspire me to write.  I just read The Great Gatsby for the first time and absolutely loved the way Fitzgerald describes the setting.  Even normal every day scenes sound exciting the way he writes them. That’s my inspiration at the moment. 

What's your favorite book/writing related quote? 
“The actual act of writing turns out to be the best part.” by Anne Lamott 
It reminds me that even though there is so much that goes into being a published writer, as long as writing remains the best part, all the rest is worth it. 

Tell us about your book:

Anxious Love is book #1 in the Love Sick Series. It is a story about trauma, isolation, courage and love.

Blurb:  Hopeful about his future after overcoming loss, Ryan Ware is living his dream life as a first round draft pick. He’s enjoying every crazy minute of fame, fortune, and gorgeous women.

Despite being the most sought-after writer in romance, severe anxiety keeps Leah Jones isolated. Having a regimented life keeps the triggers at bay that could put her back in the hospital, perhaps permanently.

A chance meeting in New Orleans, Leah’s brown eyes capture Ryan’s heart, and he vows to learn more about this reclusive beauty.

Can Leah’s anxieties withstand Ryan’s crazy life? Can Ryan learn enough about real love to be the right man for Leah?

Soul Discovery (New Release)

Soul Discovery (New Release)

Sophie Saterlee has made it her mission to get her life together. Leaving behind an abusive relationship, she's bartending her way through a psychology degree. Ultimate goal? A new, stronger sense of identity.
When a terrifying recurring nightmare begins to poison Sophie’s waking hours and threaten all her progress, once again she’s close to losing everything.
An invitation to a tea leaf reading party sounds like exactly the kind of distraction Sophie needs. But an innocent girls' night out turns into a journey through a complex and treacherous world of magic.
To survive it, Sophie must forge uncomfortable alliances with arrogant Donovan and mysterious Caine. One of them is tied to her past, and the other fills her present. Both men might hold the key to her uncertain future.   
There's more going on in her little corner of the world than Sophie realizes, and the truth will change everything.


Why am I here?

I turned around, searching through the rain for the exit to the street above. The soles of my feet were numb, submerged below rapidly rising water. I lifted a foot, but had to sink it back into the dark water, the crunch of gravel now only a slight pressure against my skin. The creek was flooding into the park, water rushing toward me. Debris from the trees wrapped around my ankles as the stink of the creek wafted into the stirring air. The rain and wind battered the blanket of liquid taking over the park, while an uncomfortable tingle grew up my calves. Cold took root within my body.

A shudder skittered along my spine and crawled under my skin as my panic intensified. This wasn’t just the wind or the rain, or even the cold. The hyper-vigilance of someone watching me had my eyes open wide despite the rain.

I spun around, looking for what had me in its sights. Seeing nothing through the pouring rain but trees in the darkness, the feeling grew into an urgency to escape.

This urgency should have got me moving. Instead I froze, unable to will my body to listen to my brain.

Whatever was in that darkness was close.

Too close.

At my back.

Can I run fast enough to get away? Not with the water now up to my knees. Should I run for the safety of the stairs or confront the thing? Every muscle quivered in fear of either choice. Like a frightened child, I snapped my eyes closed, wishing for a blanket to hide under.

S.J. Cairns is a Southern Canadian, born and raised in St. Catharines, Ontario, where she lives with her bug-killing, video game playing husband of 15 years, her spunky mother-in-law, and their three snorting pugs.
During days off from true chaos working as a Women’s Advocate at a busy downtown women’s shelter, you can find S.J. in her writerly lair, dipped in all things creepy, plotting against her lifetime nemesis, those deadly evil-doers: balloons.
S.J. hopes to one day add her own works of fiction to her overly crammed shelves as she focuses on a five-novel series called the “Soul Seer Chronicles.”
