Title: Mail Order Bride
Author: Britney King
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: July 22, 2022
The bestselling author of the “clever spine-tingler” The Secretary returns with a vicious and suspenseful tale of love-gone-wrong.
When Joel answers an ad in the back of the Farmers’ Almanac that promises to deliver the perfect wife, he isn’t sure what to expect.
For sure, it isn’t Gina.
Gina was aware she possessed secret powers—that’s what her father called them—from a very young age. He always told her she would make a perfect bride. So that’s exactly what she became.
She knows she’s not supposed to use her “powers” for evil and destruction, but Pine Lake is a small place, and Gina has big dreams—plans, in fact. She also has charm, beauty, sex appeal, and intelligence.
Only two things stand in her way: the social norms of 1953, and her new husband, Joel.
The solution may call for desperate measures. But, then, if anyone can get away with murder, it’s Gina.
However, there’s something Gina has yet to realize. That handsome groom of hers? He’s a serial loner for a reason.
Britney King lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, children, a dog named Gatsby, one ridiculous cat, and a partridge in a peach tree.
 
When she’s not wrangling the things mentioned above, she writes psychological, domestic and romantic thrillers set in suburbia.
 
Without a doubt, she thinks connecting with readers is the best part of this gig. You can find Britney online here:

Title: Fever Dream: a Psychological Thriller
Author: Britney King
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: April 22, 2022
The bestselling author of the “clever spine-tingler” The Secretary returns with an unputdownable thriller following a woman on a desperate search for answers after she’s institutionalized against her will.
 
The year is 1962, and every night Grace lays her head on her pillow at the Texas State Lunatic Hospital, she reminds herself she is not what they say she is.
Her children and her husband are not dead. They’re searching for her.
Someone knows the truth.
Strangely, that someone is hell-bent on making sure the truth stays buried.
The question is…why?
Meanwhile, Grace has bigger fish to fry, starting with her new roommate.
Elizabeth is certifiable, and she has star status—a deadly combination, Grace realizes.
The kind of woman who has everyone in the palm of her hand, Elizabeth gives even the most menacing of nurses a run for their money, takes bad intentions to a whole new level and makes crazy look seductive as hell.
 
Grace learns fast: the best way to deal with lunacy is to befriend it. It may be her only ticket out. She also learns there’s more to her new bunkmate than meets the eye. She’s vile, she’s cunning—and possibly faking.
The question is…why?
With riveting twists and a breakneck pace, Fever Dream is a propulsive thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Title: The City Wife
Author: R.M. Carpus
Genre: Dystopian, Thriller/Drama
Cover Designer: Robin Johnson of Robin Ludwig Design Inc.
Publication Date: TBA
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
A crushing betrayal.

A transcendent bond.  

Three thousand miles to asylum. 

My name is Joanna, and I’m just another statistic in The City’s trail of collateral damage. 

Before The Turn, my mother, Florence, was a devoted wife, iconic pianist, and tireless humanitarian. On stage and off, her humility and natural grace captivated and inspired her many admirers. Unmatched in elegance and fortitude, she was my role model and hero. 

Swiftly, expertly, The City siphoned her identity and shattered the illusions of her beautiful life. It built her up, then tore her down. She drifted away, far from the person I once knew. I should have known the tide would take me with her. I’d be lying if I said I’d rather be anywhere else—with Florence was where I belonged.  

As we fight for a new beginning on the Isle, can we salvage the remains of our past? Or will the delicate fabric of our history be lost forever in the apocalyptic crossfire of two worlds? 

THE CITY WIFE is the first book in the ISLE OF BURTONSHIRE dystopian thriller series. Echoing themes reminiscent of THE HUNGER GAMES, LORD OF THE FLIES, and THE HANDMAID’S TALE, this suspenseful, engrossing mother-daughter drama will hold you hostage until the very last page. 

Buy it now! Immerse yourself in Florence and Joanna’s harrowing journey to the Isle of Burtonshire.

 

A former Floridian and Seattleite, R.M. Carpus now writes fantasy and science fiction from Philadelphia, her birthplace and current home base. She is co-founder of Impossible Things Publishing (ITP), a collaborative anthology project, and a student and tutor at Saint Joseph’s University. The aftermath following the tragic loss of her mother led her to return to her Catholic faith, which she today counts as her greatest gift and joy in life, along with her family, friends, and love for storytelling. She speaks a little French, dreams of living in the English countryside, and like most writers, runs on coffee. She’s happiest outdoors—especially in the Pacific Northwest—or cuddled up at home with her animals while reading, writing, or watching classic movies.

Two Steps Behind You is a NA Thriller threaded with romance and suspense.

Available for pre-order very soon!

Blurb:

Have you ever had the feeling that someone or something is watching you?
That eerie sensation that causes a chill to skitter down your spine, the hairs at the back of your neck to rise.
The innate instinct that you are not alone?
Delilah never expected to be on the receiving end of these sensations for so long.
Friendly with everyone while still feeling at a distance, no one would have a reason to stalk her.
Right?
No one would have a reason to punish her mistakes.
Wrong.
Someone is messing with Delilah.
Popular and kind, it’s easy for someone unhinged to become consumed, obsessed.
Either that or she has a severe ghost infestation.
Could it be a coincidence that the strange happenings only start when her new friend and her shady brother with a controlling streak move to town?
Paranoia can be your worst enemy.

“It’s in the blood, dear,” said Ellen, one of the women Sandy shared time and space with, her skin worn by age, hard labor, and days spent under the sun. Blotches, liver spots and creases led the observer to the eyes. One dark, the other a cataract milky white and she always wore a dark shawl draped over the head and shoulders. Sandy was afraid of Ellen, she reminded Sandy of a gypsy or witch from a fairy-tale.

            “Come again?” said Sandy, her eyes shifting from soldier to Ellen to soldier then back to Ellen.

            Ellen had cut herself transferring a wood bucket filled with rice to add to an already large trough of buckets. A thick wood splinter pinned in the bottom of her palm dripping with a thick stream of blood. She turned to Sandy raising the bloodied palm and caught a drop of blood in her unwounded hand.

            “The blood dear,” said Ellen. “All magic comes from the blood.”

            Sandy cringed at the sight; she’d always been squeamish. Her stomach bumped, blood curled. Magic, Sandy thought. If only magic was real. How wonderful would that be? Sandy understood she was naïve, the result of an isolated childhood and her parents’ death when she was ten years old. Not that they had taught the young Sandy about the world she lived in either. They’d kept her under lock and key, never so much as offering a glimpse or advice on the outside world. They were always so cryptic with their explanations, living in an abundant and overgrown mansion as if luxury were a childhood friend. Sure there were plenty of rooms for a child to explore but as time went by those rooms seemed more like a prison than a home.

            Years of neglect, isolation and secrets were as torturous as physical suffering. And she was tired of secrets. She wanted to know truth. Truth was like a blanket that keeps you warm in the coldest winter.

            “The blood, Sandy,” said Ellen who clenched her fist around those crimson droplets, shaking her hand in front of her face. “All is in the blood.”
