How dare she have the audacity to send me a notice of evacuation from my own kingdom? She strangled the letter in her hand and watched as it burnt to a crisp. Moments earlier, a squire arrived with the rolled up parchment with the seal of Theonidor. A few moments after, two guards arrived with a heavy oak crate. It was bold of her to assume it was good news. Her first thought was that the Queen of Theonidor had finally sent her more enchanted jewels. Impatience got the best of her and she immediately broke the seal to read the letter. Within a matter of seconds anger lacerated her body like ropes wrapped around her, pulling her in multiple directions at once.

“My queen?” The guard’s voice was low and filled with uncertainty.

“Open the crate!” Dimia’s shrill tone bounced off the walls of the throne room as both guards stumbled and struggled to catch their bearings and they fumbled over the hinges and locks on the crate.

Bile rose in Dimia’s throat as another wave of anger barreled through her. She balled her hands into fists and banged on the arms of her throne.

“How dare she?” Her voice was a feral growl that mirrored the animalistic rage coursing through her veins. For a girl who was supposed to know nothing about her kingdom and one who was supposed to be dead, the Maudlins were causing quite a raucous in Dramolux and Dimia wanted no part of it. Dramolux was hers and hers alone. No one, not even Aymeri and Kumud Maudlin would be able to stop her from obtaining it.

The head of Queen Palagia of Theonidor stared at her with wide, dark red eyes filled with fear in her last moments. This was not supposed to happen. Queen Aymeri was supposed to be defeated. Why was it taking so long? Why wasn’t it as easy as her grandfather said should have been?

Now she’s bound to her writing for a completely different reason. Her life and her works are more than labors of love; they’re a matter of life or death. Each new manuscript becomes a book of sacrifice when her blood literally turns to ink.

They should be simple enough. I mean, everything begins with them, right? A single letter can be a word. A series of words become sentences. A series of sentences become paragraphs: papers, short stories, novellas, novels. Sounds easy, and yet as I sat there staring at a blank page, I couldn’t for the life of me seem to put my thoughts into a cohesive flow. 

I was suffering from a severe case of writer’s block, and my muses seemed to be on the longest coffee break ever. This would have been all well and good if I weren’t under a deadline with my publisher. Naomi had been kind enough to give me three extensions but had made it clear there would not be a fourth. I sent her some pages in hopes she’d take pity on me, but instead, she emailed them back to me in a bold, harsh font and told me they lacked my usual passion and fire and to go back to the drawing board. 

Nine hours later, I was still staring at a blank screen. Hope of any inspiration knocking me over was as cold as the cup of coffee and a half-eaten chicken sandwich sitting on my desk. Nothing was working—not the junk food or the caffeine. Maybe I should grab some chocolate and alcohol, I thought. Wasn’t it Ernest Hemingway who said, “Write drunk, edit sober”? Hell, what did I have to lose at this point?

Title: Moment of Reckoning (Nine Kingdoms, Book 7)
Author: Ann Bakshis
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Cover Designer: Lori Pryzbranowski of Hell Yes Designs
Publication Date: March 27th, 2021
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

Righteousness comes at a price and now payment is due. 

Following the death of her horrid husband, Evander, Honora prayed she would finally be free. However Evander’s master, Dolos, has returned and seeks to claim the Shadows for himself. More than ever, Honora is determined to protect her child by escaping those eager to control them both. 

Yet as painful sins from the past are revealed, those Honora hold dear are forced to relive their worst crimes. Caster’s attempt on his beloved’s life. Lycus’ lust driving him the brink of madness. In light of these ugly truths, Honora must decide if these tragedies are worth risking everything for. 

The epic conclusion has arrived in Moment of Reckoning. The breathtaking finale to the Nine Kingdoms Series written by Ann Bakshis.

I’ve always loved to write ever since I was young. I would picture myself as the main character so I could go on adventures. They began as daydreams, which I eventually put down onto paper. Throughout the years I would write whenever I got the chance no matter how small the manuscript turned out to be. I’d tried the traditional method of sending out query letters to agents, but they would respond with a “thanks, but no thanks” note. I felt discouraged, but kept writing. I had a lot of encouragement from my mom, my Aunt Jeanne, my daughter, and my husband. Having the support helped keep me chasing my dream. A few years ago, I decided to buckle down and get serious about my writing. After some research and speaking with a friend of my husband, I took the plunge into self-publishing. I found an editor and a cover designer along with other indie authors on Facebook. I’ve joined groups and asked advice from writers who have already been through the steps it takes to get out there. It took me four years and three versions before I published my first book titled Wasteland. From there, I’ve completed several series and stand-alones with quite a few more in progress, so watch for their release.

Title: Deliverance
Author: Kimberly Knight
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publication Date: March 7th, 2021
Hosted by: LadyAmber’s PR

Blurb:

Erin

Deliverance.

“The action of being rescued or set free.”

I never thought I would need to be rescued or set free from anything in my life, but that all
changed when I took a taxi home after a night out with my friends.

But the taxi didn’t take me home. It took me to a warehouse filled with women in cages, and I found
out that I was the newest captive. I was told I was lucky. I wasn’t lucky. This
was my karma for flirting with the bouncer at the nightclub when I had a
boyfriend waiting for me at home.
 

Ricardo

Savior.

“A person who saves someone or something (especially a country or cause) from danger, and who
is regarded with the veneration of a religious figure.”

I was a Navy SEAL, trained to save people. After I was medically discharged, my uncle tricked me
and got me involved with the wrong family in New York City when I needed a job.
Right away, the king made sure I watched him kill a soldier for falling in love
with one of his girls, which meant I couldn’t act on my feelings when I fell in
love with Erin. But I knew she sparked my interest at the club for a reason. I
needed to save her.

Except, year after year, we were living in a nightmare of sex, lies, and murders because the only
way out was to make the king fall, and I knew I had to wait for the perfect
moment in time.

Or we would both be dead.

 Title: Lock
Author: Kimberly Knight
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Fairytale
Hosted by: LadyAmber’s PR

Blurb:

Before Zell was born, her fate was sealed.  

Held captive in a high-rise overlooking New York City since the age of twelve, she had no friends
her own age, no life outside of the penthouse, and absolutely no choices of her
own. But what she didn’t realize was the tower where she lost her freedom would
one day become her salvation. Her prince would arrive, they would fall in love,
and they would come up with a plan for her to escape so they could live happily
ever after.
 

If only it were that easy. 

Every girl dreams of her life becoming a fairy tale, even Zell, who’s knowledge of romance was
simply from the books she stole from other girls at the brothel.

In a world where sex, drugs, and manipulation is solely the life she knows, the only fairy tale
poor Zell would endure would be a sinister one …
 

Because freedom always comes at a price.

Long live the Queen … so they say.

With my arrival to Scotland and my coronation right around the corner, I’d never been more nervous than I am now. Known for having enemies, I didn’t realize becoming Queen would garner even more. I’m not the only one after the throne and the battle for the crown might cost me my life.

The Summits on one side and the Council on the other, it’s a fight to stay on top and protect the lunas from a man’s world. But I’ve never been one to back down, especially when it comes to the lunas. The Summits and Council are in for a rude awakening when I shake things up and turn their worlds upside down.

On top of all that, there’s an evil lurking in the forest and it’s after one thing—me. With my mating ceremony coming up, I don’t know how I’m going to survive it all.

The goal is the crown, but can I keep it?
