Blurb:
Typically, my daily routine is to get up, enjoy my hot chocolate, go to work at my book store, go home, cook, clean, read a book and go to bed.
Simple. Relaxing. Calm.
But not all days go as planned.
Nope. Some days, you get up, have your morning hot chocolate, go to work, head home only to be portalled to another world. I’ve done my best to try to fit in. But while changing my clothes seemed reasonable, sharing a bed with their king put an entirely new level of complication on things.
Try to sort out your day when that happens. Especially when nobody in your new surroundings knows how you got there, let alone how to get you home.

“What do you want to know?” I made my way over and sat on the couch, turning toward him, a leg propped up under me.
“All about you and how you became this woman. Why you became this woman when you could have turned dark. You could have lost your humanity and given in to the evils of your magic.” He threw his arm up over the back of the sofa.

Promises Broken

Title: Promises Broken (Nine Kingdoms, Book 4)
Author: Ann Bakshis
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Editor: John Cameron McClain
Cover Designer: Lori Pryzbranowski of Hell Yes Designs
Blurb:
A fortunate turn of events has Evander seeing his desires finally being fulfilled, but at a great cost to his wife Honora. Her only wish now is to flee the realm, but that can’t happen until the gate into the lost kingdom of Toorkuns has been unlocked. The moment it is, all the creatures in Reynes will have their full powers restored, and balance of rule will shift to the dark magic beings.
But neither she nor Evander have the nine medallions required to unlock the gate, and there’s very few opportunities available to obtain them without suspicion. Lies will be told, truths unraveled, and deals made that no husband should ever agree to.
Honora plans on reopening the gate… no matter what.
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.

Blurb:

Another kingdom has
fallen. One that had been ruled by a cruel, callous man. Geron was never
considered a desirable kingdom by anyone in Reynes, but now that it has no
ruler the whores, bastards, and criminals who call that land home begin to
spread their poison, infiltrating the other kingdoms with their depravity.Seven
kingdoms now remain of the original nine, but only six meet at a royal
gathering to determine Geron’s fate and the safety of the realm. Honora finds
herself unprepared for the aftermath of her brother Lycus actions, as she’s
pulled into a dispute forged by the ruling kings and queens vying for control
over the home she shared with him. Evander sees this gathering as a perfect
opportunity to collect the medallions he needs, but he’ll have to be very
persuasive in liberating them from their owners without divulging his true
identity, or intentions.

Blurb:
From the USA Today
& International Bestselling author of the Saga of Crimson & Clover
comes a gripping new epic fantasy world that will leave you breathless to the
very last page.

A crown woven
together by lies.

A kingdom with the
power to unravel them.

Four Reaches. Four
brides. Only a fortnight separates the young women from becoming reluctant
queens of the usurper king, Eoghan Rhiagain.

Twenty years
earlier, King Eoghan’s father cunningly devised marriages between the highborn
sons and daughters of the oft-warring Reaches, sealing the unions before they
could protest, shattering existing betrothals in place of forced alliances.

Now, Eoghan, the
cruel boy king who stole his crown through murder, demands the eldest daughters
of these unions. To accept is unfathomable. To refuse is treason.

The lords and ladies
of the kingdom have no choice but to prepare their beloved daughters for the
horrors ahead. But they’ll soon discover there are no longer any daughters left
to present. All four have disappeared, painting the world with their rebellion.

Theirs is not the
only rebellion. Across the kingdom, little fires light within. From the
enigmatic sorcerers in the northern mountains, to the magi who both wield and
regulate the kingdom’s magic, and beyond… to a place where two prisoners are not
what they seem.

As the Reaches ready
themselves to face the king, the kingdom hovers on the edge of chaos.

And there are many
who recall, in candlelit secrecy, tales of a time before…
 

NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER!

Today and International Bestselling Author of fantasy fiction, most known for
her Saga of Crimson & Clover world. Her work has been described as rich,

(though New Orleans is where her heart rests). She’s a self-professed expert at
crafting original songs to sing to her very patient pets, and a seasoned
