DEMON'S GROTTO by Kate Hill

DEMON’S GROTTO
by Kate Hill

<,/P>Ben wants Laura to reconsider staying overnight at Demon’s Grotto, and he has information about the club’s history that should convince her. He tells her three creepy love stories, hoping she will change her mind.

Rise of the Creature: When a mad doctor brings a dead man back to life, only his beautiful assistant can make that life worth living.

The Demon Within: A man on the run stops to rest at a rooming house, not knowing that it’s the hunting ground of a gorgeous succubus bent on devouring handsome guests.

Don’t Cry, Wolf: An ad for a maintenance man at a bed and breakfast is answered by a former soldier who’s harboring a hairy secret. The business’s lovely co-owner becomes involved with this sullen hunk who’s more than she imagined possible.

After hearing these stories of love and murder, will Laura decide to spend the night at Demon’s Grotto?

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT
Holly woke the next morning with keen anticipation. She and Gabby were working hard on the third floor suites and hoped that within a month they’d be ready for guests. Now that they had Declan’s help, everything should go smoothly.

After washing and dressing in comfortable jeans, a paint-stained sweatshirt, and sneakers, she covered her hair with a kerchief and hurried out of her suite to start her day.

She paused at the top of the stairs, since Declan was running up, his hair and face damp with sweat. He wore a zipped jacket, gym pants, and sneakers.

“Hey,” she said with a smile. “Gone for a morning run?”

“I’m a creature of habit,” he said, pausing on the stairs and turning his back to the wall. He extended his arm. “Go ahead.”

He was polite. Still no smile, though. “I’m making breakfast. Want some?”

“I’m good.”

“How about coffee?”

“Black. Thanks,” he called, on his way down the hall.

Holly continued downstairs to the kitchen where Gabby was already making breakfast for the guests. So far they had two rooms rented. “I was going to cook,” Holly said. “I wasn’t sure if you’d be up after last night.”

Gabby grinned. “It’s better than having you cook. We want the guests to come back.”

“Hey, I’m not that bad.”

Gabby raised an eyebrow.

“Well, I make great coffee.”

“Okay, girlfriend, I’ll give you that. That guy you hired eats like a damn horse.”

“You met Declan?”

“Met him? The dude came tearing through the front door like his ass was on fire, ate two of my omelets and three sausages in like two minutes, and busted out of here again. Something about getting to work on the third floor. Did you threaten him with death instead of dismissal if he didn’t work hard?”

Holly laughed. “No wonder when I asked if he wanted breakfast he said he was good.”

“If he works like he eats, then you should do all the hiring around here.”

SOUL READER by Lisa Zajkowski

SOUL READER
by Lisa Zajkowski

When skeptic Marvin meets artistic Natalie in a coffee shop on a cold October morning, the two fall fast in love, but nothing is ever as easy as it feels. Natalie believes that a divine something is guiding her life for her greater good, and it seems to be true. She lands her dream job and she and Marvin marry at a beachside castle. However, the ease and flow of their lives start to change. At the same time that Natalie becomes pregnant, Marvin experiences strange symptoms and visits his doctor. When faced with a diagnosis that changes everything and odd dreams of the child that hasn’t yet been born, will Marvin let go of his skepticism or will he miss out on a lifetime with his loving family?

EXCERPT
They walk through the archway and the dancing roses appear to be just what Talie said it would be. The roses grow in such a fashion that they dance with the breeze and the aroma in the garden is what love would smell like if there were such a scent associated with it. There are thousands of vibrant colored roses up and down in rows and they do not look like typical rose bushes. The stems of the roses are different, stronger, and able to uphold the bud. Almost any color that can be thought of is here, including purple, red, blue, yellow, rainbow, black, turquoise, white, pink, orange, two and three tone colors, and a bright red-orange sparkling rose.

“Who owns this place?” Marvin asks.

“There’s a plaque with the owner’s name on it over here,” Talie says leading the way.

The memorial reads: Jonathan Rutherford and Ellen Campanilli Rutherford established “Roses of the Garden” in 1913.

“Wow,” Marvin says, “They must have some secret formula regarding horticulture because I’ve never seen such roses!”

TWISTS OF TIME by S. R. Cronin

TWISTS OF TIME
by S. R. Cronin

Alex once walked away from a rare ability to warp time, thinking it was only a young man’s trick to play basketball better. Now, as a father and teacher, he needs to relearn the skill before the past begins to destroy his own future. To protect his daughter and his most promising student, he must stop the school at which he teaches from turning the clock back to an era of intolerance. He wants desperately to use his unique gifts to help an old high school friend solve an ancient Maya mystery offering a rare chance to bridge the past and the future. Both are possible, but only if Alex can learn to control his temporal talents before he runs out of time.

EXCERPT
"Dad. I did not flirt with those boys, okay? Ick. They're wannabe skinheads. Look, I was nice to them when I talked to them, probably nicer than I would've been. But that's just common sense. Who's going to give you information if you're rude? Come on." Alex had to agree.

Teddie was angry at Ms. Johnson's accusation, but Alex wondered if she resented being accused of flirting, or of flirting with these particular boys. Either way, from Teddie's point of view she'd done nothing wrong.

"Shouldn't you have told the boys you were asking about their projects on behalf of the school paper?"

"Oh, that would have gotten me a lot of information. Those kids really believe all school-sponsored activities are part of a liberal propaganda machine. Seriously paranoid people."

"Well, you've made an enemy in Ms. Johnson, dear. I don't think she's a fan of mine now, either."

Teddie winced. It was hard enough being a freshman without having to worry about how everything you did reflected on your teacher father.

"You know, dad, I don't think Ms. Johnson is the kind of friend you want anyway. I hear she tows the line in front of the administration, but in the classroom, she comes out with some pretty racist things. She always phrases them like questions, so if they get repeated they don't sound so bad, but her class spends a lot of time talking about things that make some kids uncomfortable."

"Teddie, you're exaggerating. If that were the case, kids would be speaking up, to their parents, and to the department head."

Teddie responded with her you-adults-do-not-understand expression. "Dad, if a kid reports her, she twists it around like they were having a class discussion and this kid is saying stuff because he didn't do well on a test or something. And that kid can kiss a good grade from her goodbye."

Her dad gave the possibility some thought. "I think the other history teachers would say something if this lady was crossing a line."

More of the look. "Dad, you need to get out of the science department more. Word is most of the Early Gulch history teachers agree with everything Ms. Johnson teaches, even though they keep their opinions more to themselves. The few that object, like Mr. Hanson, they don't last long. I think the whole history department is part of some racist group."

"Now who sounds paranoid?"

"You know what they say. Doesn't mean they're not out to get you. Look, I'm sorry I put you on Ms. Johnson's radar. Be careful, Dad. I think she likes hurting people who don't agree with her."

REVIEW
Again, I’m drawn into this series. The interwoven nature of the books is so fascinating. Couple that with watching this family use their powers separately (but almost in a together way), and I’ve got myself a set of books to sink my teeth into.

I enjoyed Alex’s ability to slow time, but I also liked that he wasn’t really in complete control of it. It was a nice switch from the big baddies who can outright stop time or the limitless potential of time travel. It’s an ability that alerts him, and then, he must make choices and act. It made for great tension.

Something else I really enjoyed about this was the smaller scale of the threat. The first two books featured big-picture consequences. While the white supremacist angle here could certainly become a major issue, it was more confined to Alex’s home and family. Despite this, I hated the villain just as much as I did the ones in previous books. There is nothing attractive about hatred, something Cronin captured brilliantly. The struggles of youthful thinking were also explored in beautiful detail. The teen years are when the mind is most able to be molded, and the back-and-forth was interesting and a bit chilling to see.

But let’s not stop there. The search for the ancient treasure is not to be forgotten. I loved how these two major plotlines worked side-by-side and ultimately crossed. The slow buildup to their joining was seamlessly accomplished. There was some jumping of perspectives back-and-forth through time. This jarred me at first, but once I realized it was happening, it stopped bugging me.

The best thing about this series and Cronin’s writing is that they make me think. There are some hard topics discussed in this and the other books. They are not shied away from, even if they are uncomfortable. Many books do this, but Cronin does it in an almost understated way. Rather than having a rebellion shoved in my face, Cronin shows how a small action here or there builds into a local or international incident. It’s fantastic storytelling, and I look forward to more in this series.

ABOUT S. R.

Sherrie Roth grew up in Western Kansas thinking there was no place in the universe more fascinating than outer space. After her mother vetoed astronaut as a career ambition, she went on to study journalism and physics in hopes of becoming a science writer.

She published her first science fiction short story long ago, and then waited a lot of tables while she looked for inspiration for the next story. When it finally came, it declared to her it had to be a whole book, nothing less. One night, while digesting this disturbing piece of news, she drank way too many shots of ouzo with her boyfriend. She woke up thirty-one years later demanding to know what was going on.

The boyfriend, who she had apparently long since married, asked her to calm down and explained how, in a fit of practicality, she had gone back to school and gotten a degree in geophysics and spent the last 28 years interpreting seismic data in the oil industry. The good news, according to Mr. Cronin, was that she had found it to be entertaining and ridiculously well-paying. The bad news was the two of them had still managed to spend almost all of the money. Apparently she was now Mrs. Cronin, and further good news was that they had produced three wonderful children whom they loved, even though, to be honest, that was where a lot of the money had gone. Even better news was that Mr. Cronin turned out to be a warm-hearted, encouraging sort who was happy to see her awake and ready to write. "It's about time," were his exact words.

Sherrie Cronin discovered that over the ensuing decades Sally Ride had already managed to become the first woman in space and apparently had done a fine job of it. No one, however, had written the book that had been in Sherrie's head for decades. The only problem was, the book informed her it had now grown into a six book collection. Sherrie decided she better start writing it before it got any longer. She's been wide awake ever since, and writing away.

KILL CODE by Clive Fleury

KILL CODE
by Clive Fleury

WHEN THE OCEANS RISE...THE TRUTH DROWNS

The year 2031. Our future. Their present. A world decimated by climate catastrophe, where the sun's heat is deadly and the oceans rise higher every day. A world ruled by the rich, powerful, and corrupt. A world where a good man can't survive for long.

Hogan Duran was a good man once: a good cop, forced to resign in disgrace when he couldn't save his partner from a bullet. Now Hogan lives on the fraying edges of society, serving cruel masters and scavenging trash dumps just to survive.

But after four years of living in poverty, Hogan finally gets the chance to get back on his feet. He's invited to join the National Security Council, the powerful paramilitary organization responsible for protecting the rich and powerful from the more unsavory elements of society. All he needs to do is pass their deadly entrance exam, and he'll be rewarded with wealth and opportunity beyond his wildest dreams.

But this ex-cop's path to redemption won't be easy. The NSC is hiding something, and as Hogan descends deeper and deeper into their world, he starts to uncover the terrible truth of how the powerful in this new society keep their power...and just how far they'll go to protect their secrets.

In a world gone wrong, can one good man actually make a difference? Or will he die trying?

AN INTERVIEW WITH CLIVE
-What inspired you to become a writer?

There was no one thing that inspired me to write. At school, my English teacher said I should be a writer but for me then, that was like going to the moon. No chance! However, after I left University out of the blue, I got the chance to work on a newspaper and from there things just kind of happened.

-If you could visit your book’s world for a day, what one thing would you do?

I would hate to visit my book’s world—even for a day. My first instinct would be to shout: ‘Get me out of here!’ Then, being naturally curious, I would probably look around and try to find Hogan and Ruby.

-It’s two in the morning. What does your protagonist reveal in confidence? (Don’t worry, we won’t tell.)

My Kill Code protagonist, Hogan Duran, tells me that things are happening to him he can’t explain, but he’s afraid to talk about it because he thinks the others will think he’s crazy. He doesn’t mind talking to me though because I’ve already told him I’m only there for a day.

-Which of your characters would you go out for drinks with?

Ruby Mason—who else! She’s bright, pretty, and tough—not prepared to take shit from anyone. I’m sure I’d be intimidated but it would be a fantastic evening.

-You’re in a tavern, and a dwarf challenges you to a duel. What do you do?

How strange. That only just happened the other day. I wasn’t fooled. Despite height disadvantages little people pack one heck of a punch. I pointed across the bar, and said, look at that beautiful woman who’s making eyes at you. He turned, and I ran out of there at top speed.

-Is there a genre you could never write? Which and why?

I couldn’t write romance novels. It’s not that I don’t have romance in my novels, but just that a whole book about boy meets girl, or girl meets girl or boy meets boy, and they fall in love would be a real writing struggle. Now girl meets alien and falls in love—maybe that would be a romance story I could have a stab at.

RAVENS COVE by Mary Ann Poll

RAVENS COVE
by Mary Ann Poll

Welcome to Ravens Cove, Alaska, a tiny town nestled in a small hollow on the majestic Cook Inlet. A town familiar with storytelling—after all, Alaska abounds in rich legends. In Ravens Cove, though, legends have a tendency to come to life.

Meet Josiah Williams, the peculiar stranger whose warning to lifetime residents Kat Tovslosky and her cousin, Sheriff Bart Andersen, raises more questions than answers; a man whose dark past and knowledge of the murders make him a suspect more than an ally. Join Kat and Bart as an unlikely troop forms (including a very unwelcome FBI agent) to discover the identity of a killer. The unearthing of which will throw the reluctant warriors into a battle for their very lives and the lives of all who call Ravens Cove home.

EXCERPT Josiah marched to the back of the church, lifting his hand, waving it back and forth to part the black mist covering the door.

It shot to one side before he walked through, a dark curtain blown by an invisible wind.

The dark mist, Atramentous by name, vibrated with hatred, then fear at what he saw. An angel of God stood beside this man. “Uriel!”

The angel turned and nodded. “Atramentous.”

Atramentous bent his head to avoid the blinding light. After they passed, he raised his head, formed an invisible mouth, a deep red chasm where the black mist had been. A guttural, gurgling roar spewed out to sound the alarm, sending sleeping birds flying into the sky crying in terror.

AN INTERVIEW WITH MARY
-What inspired you to become a writer?

I am more surprised than anyone that I became an author. In 1998 a disc ruptured in my neck, leaving me unable to continue in my career in administration. It took a couple of years to heal. The journey to writing and publishing was full of trips down other paths – going back to work time and again to make the almighty dollar and avoid the emotions and mental weariness of writing. I took courses, joined online chat groups and talked about writing until I was blue in the face. I finally accepted the desire to write a book was not going away. It took twelve years to summon the courage to write and complete Ravens Cove.

-If you could visit your book’s world for a day, what one thing would you do?

I’d stop by Grandma Bricken’s house to sit down for a great Alaska-style dinner of moose stew and sourdough bread. Yum!

-It’s two in the morning. What does your protagonist reveal in confidence? (Don’t worry, we won’t tell.)

She wants a ‘fairytale’ life. One that is free of fighting supernatural beings and where she could live happily ever after with the man of her dreams. Yes, Kat has a child-like romantic side which no one sees but many readers can discern when they read the Iconoclast series.

-Which of your characters would you go out for drinks with?

I would love to talk about life with all my characters. But, to choose one, I’d choose Ken Melbourne. He is so confident and so confused by the events in Ravens Cove. He’d be fun to chat with.

-You’re in a tavern, and a dwarf challenges you to a duel. What do you do?

I’m not a fantasy writer, so I’m not sure how I would handle a normal dwarf. If we couldn’t sit down, have a drink and talk it out, I’d accept the challenge. In my books, the entities akin to dwarves are small, evil entities—the Kumrande who make their first appearance in Ingress.) So, I would hope to be surrounded by my characters who have fought and been victorious against these nasty, man-eating creatures.

-Is there a genre you could never write? Which and why?

I wouldn’t write romance novels. I am far from being a fuzzy, warm kind of girl, even though I enjoy a romantic evening. I’m more inclined to enjoy action.

ABOUT MARY

I’m Mary Ann Poll, America’s Lady of Supernatural Thrillers and charter member of Author Masterminds. The first question most people ask is, “What is an Iconoclast?” Iconoclast means, “The destroyer of religious beliefs or symbols.” I took this definition and applied it to the supernatural realm, which is how the Iconoclast Thriller series was born. My books revolve around the battle between good and evil. They also revolve around the heroic acts of ordinary people who must face extraordinary, even unbelievable, circumstances.

I draw from real-life experiences, as well as my imagination, to create these supernatural thrillers. My love for a creepy, goosebump-creating ghost story and my love for Christ come together in these books.

I am a proud pet lover, which is also reflected in my writing. In my off time, I enjoy gardening, swimming and spending time with beloved family.

I pray you enjoy reading Ravens Cove as much as I enjoyed writing it. Blessings in Christ!

KARMA CITY by Gardner Browning

KARMA CITY
by Gardner Browning

A microscopic parasite has crippled humanity with night terrors and paralyzing anxiety. In this world of increasing dystopia, hope yet remains in Karma City. But when mercenary drifter, Jameson Shoals, learns that a famous scientist has created a stronger parasite to kill the original, it isn’t until the bodies litter the streets that he realizes the horrifying truth: the new parasite is a killer with a mind of its own, and upon dominating Patient Zero, this killer acquires legs, hands, and eyes. It falls upon Shoals and his partner, a deadly female mercenary, to stop PZ and his mob before they can overcome and supplant humankind.

EXCERPT
Jameson Shoals crouched to keep his balance atop the speeding train. The wind beat against his leather jacket, scattering his collar length, brunet hair over his eyes like a frayed, muddy rag. The scalding steam and smoke puffing from the locomotive singed his nostrils. Raising his shotgun at the attacker standing only a few feet away, he shouted, “You’re in a real heap of shit, pal.”

The man glared at Jameson, with blond hair framing his gaunt face like tendrils of fire . His spindly legs backed to the edge of the train car roof with unnatural balance. “You should consider your own life,” he hissed. Amber light burned in the man’s hollow, jack-o-lantern eyes. “Detonation is imminent.”

Before Jameson could shoot, the man leapt from the train, flipping backward and vanishing into the night.

AN INTERVIEW WITH GARDNER
-What inspired you to become a writer?

In the middle of high school, I signed up for a creative writing course to fill my schedule. In those early days, I didn’t take school work seriously. I handed in my writing assignments on torn, lined paper that I’d just finished writing during the lunch period before class. It turned out that my stories were good. Very good. Better than the other students who toiled away for hours at it. Every single one of my stories got an A+. As an average C+ student, I couldn’t believe it. I also couldn’t believe that I had something at school to look forward to, something I loved doing. The teacher encouraged me and at the end of each week, the entire class would turn in their work and he’d snatch mine from the pile and begin reading aloud. The other students soon couldn’t wait to hear what I’d come up with each week. This time in my life revealed for me that I had a talent and I had discovered that writing made me happy.

-If you could visit your book’s world for a day, what one thing would you do?

In the center of Karma City, there’s a diner that one of my characters frequents. I’d like to go there, have a coffee, read, write and watch the morning pass outside the window.

-It’s two in the morning. What does your protagonist reveal in confidence? (Don’t worry, we won’t tell.)

Jameson Shoals would tell me that deep in his heart he doesn’t like the person that he’s had to become but at the same time, he wouldn’t trust anyone other than himself. He would tell me that he thinks its okay for a man to be what he hates at least one time in his life if it means that everything else will be better, that he will be better, for it. And when he tells me that, I don’t know what to say. I just listen.

-Which of your characters would you go out for drinks with?

Jack Halligan. He’s an investigative journalist in Karma City and as a fellow writer, I’d love to hang out with him. He’s also a pilot. It would be fun to go for a ride in his bush plane!

-You’re in a tavern, and a dwarf challenges you to a duel. What do you do?

I’d have to pay him off. Too afraid of a shot below the belt.

-Is there a genre you could never write? Which and why?

I’m not into crime/mysteries or romance.

THE RINGS OF FAOLAN-RUBIES by Kristal Dawn Harris

THE RINGS OF FAOLAN-RUBIES
by Kristal Dawn Harris

From the first, Michael Faolan and Natalie Terrence knew they were destined to be Lycan mates, but constant danger in Michael's life keeps them separated. They are stalked by the hunters, a group of men who plan to eradicate all Lycan as vermin. Natalie refuses to acknowledge the bond that she has with Michael until hunters burn down his barn and he is gravely injured. She cannot resist his call, even with the threat hanging over his head. Michael Faolan has secrets of his own, but he is happy to accept Natalie's ministrations. Their attraction ignites into flames of passion as they continue to fight the hunters. Could his secrets dampen the hunger Natalie feels for her mate, or can they use that desire to build a family and forge a love so strong no man, woman, or beast can tear them apart?

EXCERPT
Pale moonlight descended over Heather Ridge, adding a menacing air to its aged appearance. Her eyes slowly lifted to the second-floor windows as she thought of Michael. He dominated her every moment and had secretly become her own private obsession. She felt his eyes. She sensed his presence. Silver orbs gazed back from the dingy, dark windows. Her hand involuntarily came up to rub the base of her throat. She couldn’t look away, spellbound in the moment. Her feet refused to move. It felt like forever passed when the outline of his body finally turned away from the window.

Natalie’s nervous laugh broke the eerie silence of the twilight. The porch light turned on at that exact moment, and she jumped. Her breath caught in her lungs and she doubled over gasping for air. She chided herself for being afraid and shook her head. She was Lycan, a predator, and she belonged in the night, but the wind refused to support her confidence as it moaned through the forest.

Natalie shivered and rubbed her arms as gray fog leaked from the forest. It swirled around the corners of the house just as her feet climbed to the top of the limestone steps. She stopped only for a moment and watched with wide eyes as it creeped slowly up the steps behind her. With her back against the front door, she turned the door knob. The front door creaked as she pushed it open then slammed shut with a loud bang.
