The Boss’s Daughter

By:

Jennifer Bates

I am marked by the Black Rose, the symbol of my father’s cruelty and arrogance. It’s a stain that will never wash out, the same mark all those girls carry—the ones who keep turning up dead.

My father, underboss for a powerful crime family, killed my fiancé, then told me he’d see me dead too. The only reason he didn’t kill me right then and there was because he wanted me to suffer first.

But he will never break me.

I ran away. I survived. Those other girls…they weren’t so lucky.

To stop the murders, I’ll have to go back and give my father what he wants. Me. My blood.

And then there’s Hunter…the only man I want, and the only one I can never have. If he finds out who I am, everything I’ve fought for will fall apart.

There will never be a knight in shining armor to rescue the girls of the Black Rose. I’ll have to do that myself.

The blood of the Family runs in my veins, and I will not go down without a fight.

Broken

Angelle tossed in her fallen angel wings many molted feathers ago, but a shade demon pops in to ruin her plans of getting back into Heaven. He lays a curse on her. In order to stay out of Hell, she must find a missing Celestial angel and the chit’s demon lover.

As the case develops, Angelle begins to suspect the answer might involve herself and her own Sangre demon boyfriend, Jack. To complicate matters, her last flame from Hell shows up.

Mel, who has a penchant for the 1920’s era, is determined to take over the Devil’s Brigade. To do that, he needs the hearts of an angel and a demon who are in love.

Coincidence? Or are Angelle and Jack the target of a maniac’s scheme to rule Hades?

I’m a Loser, Baby. A NaNoWriMo Loser.

It’s November again. National Novel Writing Month. I can’t count how many times I’ve attempted to write 50,000 words in one month and not once have I achieved this lofty goal.

This month, I decided not to even try to reach 50,000 words. I set my own goal. Eleven days into it, I’m giving up. I’m done.

Why?

Last night, I went out and was listening to karaoke and enjoying some time out. Sitting at a bar, even in a restaurant, has always been my brainstorming time. I write notes on napkins and log things in memos on my phone. Last night was no different. I was getting all kinds of future writing ideas. What was I not doing? Writing. I wasn’t logging those word counts. As I realized this, I knew that NaNoWriMo was simply not working for me.

You see, when writing starts to become a “job” for me, I start to lose interest. I know that to write books, you have to sit and write, but I want it to be because I enjoy it. Putting those words down is a stress reliever for me. When it becomes something that causes stress, it’s time for me to take a step back and reevaluate. I did that. In doing so, I realized that even when it’s not NaNoWriMo, I’m pushing myself too hard. There are many things I want to write, blogs included, and I’m not doing it. It’s time for me to slow down and enjoy the process.

I so admire the people that can win NaNoWriMo.  And I enjoy doing word sprints and the camaraderie that results from those. I’m definitely not saying it’s a bad thing. Writer’s supporting each other to reach their goals and words being written in droves can never be a bad thing. It’s simply not MY thing.

I’m a loser, baby. And I’m okay with it.

Peace!

I’m out!

The Asgardian Prophecies: The Black Quasar

By: Amber Daniels and Charley Swanda

ap

Synopsis:

Charles grew up with his mother in a small Oklahoma town, where he is known as a freak and a nobody. The fact that his dad is believed dead, and his best friend is the town drug dealer, doesn’t help him much. But that all changes on the day of his fifteenth birthday, when the guy he has thought was just a family friend shows up demanding that Charles is told the truth about his life and his world; his mom isn’t his mom, his dad was once a member of Odin’s guard (the Odinites) and is now possibly a traitor, and Charles is not named Charles. But his name is Magnus, and he is the prophecy child. He is then given his father’s ring (that has unknown powers) and after almost killing a school jock is whisked away to Asgard where he can learn to use his powers properly. Upon arriving in this new world he is introduced to the other Odinites, who are to be his fellow warriors, even the only female Odinite Helena whom he can’t decide whether she likes him or wants to kill him. With his powers and the powers of the others he is trained to save the nine worlds; that is unless the newly awakened Loki and the evil Goddess Hel; with the use of secrets Magnus desperately wants the answers to, can sway him to destroy the worlds instead.
