There are over 100 authors in my Cafe and Bookstore along with their buying links, four of their covers and their website or blog link.

From November 28th I will be doing a feature for a number of authors at a time with one of their books and the latest review which I will source from Amazon.  I will include the covers for any other books plus a central buy link and website.

However, if you have published a new book that we have not promoted in the last year then let me know so that we can do a full promotional post.

It is an alphabetical list so it is easy enough to find your name and please let me know if the central selling link is not correct (I use Amazon) or if your link to your website or blog is wrong.

Reading Recommendations

What is your latest release and what genre is it? The latest book, apart from the graphic novels, was Lands of Exile: But’n’Ben, written with Stuart France. It is the seventh book featuring the adventures of Don and Wen as they delve into the mysteries and history of Albion.

Genre? This is where it all falls down. At least I got my name right. I know we are supposed to write within nice, neat categories … and preferably popular ones to boot … We couldn’t call it fiction as it is based on our own adventures in the ancient landscape. Nor could we call it factual because, at least as far as I know, we are not being pursued by the police for the abduction of a standing stone …

We listed it under travel, because that, at least, was accurate.

Quick description: Ben is in prison…

Book Review: Brothers of Darkness

unnamed

Patrick’s Story: Brothers of Darkness (Amaranthine Prequel)

By Joleene Naylor

The prequel to Shades of Gray tells the story of Patrick and Michael, how they got tangled into Claudius’ web, and their valiant fight to escape.

When Patrick’s missing brother Michael returns, he brings with him a world of darkness. Turned into a vampire against his will, Michael is the coven’s whipping boy. When Patrick tries to help, he’s claimed as a slave who spends his weekends preparing victims, scooping ashes, and falling prey to the vampire’s twisted desires.

There’s only so much hell he can take, and when vampires from a warring coven offer sanctuary in exchange for cooperation, Patrick quickly agrees. What he expected to be a few months drags out into a long smear of nightmares, and though he fights for hope and freedom, the cost of victory may be more than he bargained for.

My Review: This book is a must read for Amaranthine fans. Having read the series, I knew how this prequel would end, so it was painful falling in love with Patrick when I already knew his fate. This story is brutal, violent, and gory, but so important to the overall Amaranthine story. Having read it, I can’t imagine the series existing without this essential piece of the puzzle. Not only does this book give insight into Patrick’s characters and how Katelina is eventually dragged into the vampire world, it also gives valuable insight into Katelina’s and Jorick’s character. We truly see a side of these characters we never could have imagined. I so glad the author decided to write this book.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. (I’d give it more if I could!)

Buy on Amazon. Or, start reading the series free by downloading Shades of Gray.

One Woman’s Island – a review

Wow! Check out this rave review for One Woman’s Island by Susan Toy.

One Woman’s Island
by Susan M. Toy

Purchase copies here

One Woman’s Island, a new novel by Susan M. Toy, like the “Island in the Clouds Cocktail” found within its pages, is a wonderful mixing of two distinctive cultures into a tasty blend of mystery and intrigue.

One Woman’s Island delves into the clash of two cultures that can only be seen from the perspective of someone hoping to be engulfed by life in a seeming Caribbean paradise to escape her first-world problems, only to find all is not as it appears.

Like one of the key ingredients of the cocktail, whipped coconut cream, at first look, it seems like something we know until it is tasted, much like island life.

Throw in a splash of rum, a dash of chocolate, a bit of Canadian sensibility in the form of maple syrup over hot or cold espresso, and…

Blood in the Water
by Tim Baker
Genre: Suspense/Thriller

Blood in the Water – my ninth novel – tells the story of Bob “Oscar” Oscarson, who finds a 300-year-old Spanish coin while SCUBA diving. Naturally he thinks his find is only the beginning. Unfortunately, he’s right—it’s the beginning of trouble the likes of which he never imagined.

In the book, we also see the return of Flagler Beach P.I. Steve Salem and his…

Celine Reissued

Outstanding review for Celine by Maegan Provan!

Amaranthine by Joleene Naylor

14650282_1256297397747021_6788309910645983577_nWhen Maegan Provan first published her vampire novel Celine, I gave it five stars. Now that she’s released a reworked second edition, I wish I could give it ten!

The basics are still the same, the title character is a girl who has been transformed into a “Night Touched”, a vampire created by the original vampire and then abandoned. With no one to guide her, she’s is quickly captured by Slayers, a group of humans who, in a world rife with paranormal creatures of all kinds, have dedicated themselves to protecting humanity – and that means killing vampires.

But instead of killing Celine, they see this as the perfect opportunity to study a Night Touched. Trapped, Celine reaches out in the only way she can – but psychically connecting with Harper.

When Harper was turned into a Night Touched, years ago, also abandoned. Since then, she has come to rely…

She’s back now to discuss her newest release, Rogues & Rascals in Goose Pimple Junction. For those of you who haven’t read any of Amy’s books, I highly recommend them. They’re chock-full of humor, mystery, and Southern wisdom. Good to have you back, Amy!

Rogues & Rascals in Goose Pimple Junction was released in May and is the fourth book in my humorous mystery series. The main characters are Wynona and Caledonia, two very different women, but two women who also have more in common than one might think.

How long did it take you to write the new book?

Forever. A least it seemed like it. Realistically, more…

Patrick’s story: Brothers of Darkness (New Amaranthine Story by Joleene Naylor)- Plus Review!

Great review for Joleene Naylor’s newly release book, Brothers of Darkness.
