Blurb:
Six months ago I died.
And I’ve been looking for my killer ever since.

I didn’t expect to survive death, but here I am and I’ve got questions—lots of them. Questions
that lead me to a world I never knew existed in the shadows of the mundane.
When I come face to face with a vampire who seems to have the answers I’m
looking for, I find myself trapped in a game where I’m the pawn.

Someone is hunting me. No one is safe until I’m caught, but I refuse to be the prey. When
the hunter becomes the hunted, they’ll learn I’m not as naïve as they think.
That is, until the mastermind is revealed and nothing is ever the same again.

Will I be able to reclaim my old life? Or is the game just getting started …

NOW LIVE!

Title: Born in Darkness
Author: Ann Bakshis
Genre: SciFi/Fantasy
Cover Designer: Lori Pryzbranowski of Hell Yes Designs
Publication Date: January 1st, 2021
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

Katarina Whylde takes pride in her work as an assassin, and relishes that moment when the last breath of life escapes her victims. What she doesn’t know is why. Still, as a member of the Najem—a group of hired thieves and killers—she’s taught not to question such things.

 

All of that changes when the Forum sends her on a special assignment that awakens memories of a past she’d long forgotten. Now, Kat finds herself second-guessing the intentions of the very organization she swore allegiance to.

 

Can Kat unravel the web of lies and betrayal tightening around her and uncover the truth of her origins? Or will the next bounty claimed be for her head?

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: The Broken Realm
Author: Sarah M. Cradit
Genre: Epic Fantasy, Grimdark Fantasy, Fantasy
Cover Designer: Regina Wamba
Editor: Emily A. Lawrence
Publication Date: March 23rd, 2021
Hosted by: LadyAmber’s PR

Blurb:

The treacherous, magical, seductive world of Kingdom of the White Sea, introduced by USA Today
bestselling fantasy author Sarah M. Cradit in The Kingless Crown, continues in
this thrilling sequel, The Broken Realm.

The crown demanded everything. The kingdom will answer.

Chaos paints the White Kingdom. Missing children, dead nobles, and a daring escape have created
an upheaval that threatens the future of the entire realm.

The lords and ladies are armed with a powerful secret weapon as they prepare to make a stand against
the crown, but the resistance has plenty to overcome before they can claim
triumph. The lord-less Westerlands prepares for war with the formidable Quinlanden
Guard spreading their men and cruelty to every corner of their Reach. In the
Easterlands, the sorcerer Mortain cultivates his ominous influence over the
enslaved Saleen, a decisive threat he could unleash upon the kingdom with a
snap of his finger.

To the kingdom, it appears as if these assaults on their freedom are cosigned by the crown. It
seems only a matter of time before the king’s victory becomes total.

But from his isolated throne in Duncarrow, King Eoghan has discovered his authority is not
absolute. There are other powers at play, as sinister as they are resilient.
Those close to him curate the facts he is fed, keeping him tucked away in the
dark while they issue orders in his name. As his control spirals, and opposing
forces gain ground, the king’s fragile resolve turns to desperation.

Yet, across the kingdom, a quiet but powerful awakening of magic is taking place. One that
began generations ago, on a cold night in Duncarrow…

Title: Bloodlust (Mackenzie Grey: Trials Book #5)
Author: Karina Espinosa
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Cover Designer: Covers by Christian
Publication Date: December 11th, 2020
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb: 
The countdown has begun.

Mackenzie Grey is tying up loose ends before she says goodbye to the life she knows. In doing so, that means closing up all her cases that are left open at the Supernatural Investigative Unit, and nothing prepares her for the blood thirsty vampires roaming the streets of New York City. It is time to rein them in and bring order back to the city. Except Kenz is just as blood thirsty as they are.

Úlfur is a shadow Mackenzie can’t seem to shake amidst all the chaos, and when all the pieces fall into place, and his identity is revealed nothing will be the same again.

Saying goodbye is hard, but staying alive is even harder.

Title: Things That Should Stay Buried
Author: Casey L. Bond
Genre: YA Epic Fantasy/Mythologya
Editor: Stacy Sanford/ The Girl with the Red Pen
Cover & Trailer Designer: Melissa Stevens/ The Illustrated Author Design Services
Publication Date: August 28th, 2020
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb: 
Some destinies are written in the stars. Others must be bought with blood…

The Zodia are real. Clawing their way from a long-forgotten tomb, they emerge, ravenous to claim everyone born under their star signs. Plotting to resurrect kingdoms no human knew existed, they are driven by a hunger for vengeance against the one who buried them: Aries.
Larken is a natural born sprinter, but even she can’t outrun the darkness closing in. A shelter-in-place order has been issued, causing widespread panic. Some brush the alarm off as a drill, until people begin to disappear… vanishing without a trace. Left with only one option, Larken’s brother does what he must to save her life… and calls forth Aries.
Considered a traitor by his own kind, only Aries has the power to stand against the Zodia. But he can’t do it alone. Mystically bonded to Larken, the pair must band together for the fight to come if either hope to make it out alive. Neither anticipated the passion that would ignite between them. Yet, in a world suddenly thrust into chaos, it may be the key to their survival.
The Zodia are out for blood with their attentions inexplicably focused on Larken. When long buried truths finally come to light, will their love be their salvation or their curse?
“A mesmerizing and haunting twist on a familiar tale you don’t want to miss. “ – Cameo Renae, USA Today bestselling author of the Hidden Wings Series

“Casey L. Bond reaches for the stars to bring us Things That Should Stay Buried. The Zodia are beautiful, dangerous and to die for.”- New York Times Bestselling Author Chanda Hahn

Title: A Selfish Purpose (Nine Kingdoms, Book 6)
Author: Ann Bakshis
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Cover Designer: Lori Pryzbranowski of Hell Yes Designs
Publication Date: November 25th, 2020
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

Many would enslave her. It’s up to Honora to save herself by any means necessary.

 

The power of the Shadows courses through Ora’s veins, making her a prize an onslaught of enemies conspire to claim. To her great regret, they aren’t alone in their desires to exploit her. Evander, her husband, has taken to using her when it suits him, then casting her aside.

 

Greed, arrogance, jealousy, and power: each are selfish masters who dictate the lives of those who allow them into their hearts. All of which Honora has seen far too much of in recent months. Desperate to break free from the noose of cruelty tightening around her, she risks everything to forge her own path. How far will Ora go to turn the tides in Toorkuns? And will the sacrifice required be too steep a price to pay?
