New Release: Billionaire Unknown by J.S. Scott

Billionaire Unknown - Author J.S. Scott 

I was perfectly content with my life. My career was booming. I traveled. I did as much charity work as I possibly could for the homeless, and I was perfectly happy with the choices I'd made.
At least...I was--until my sister, Dani, came up missing. As an international correspondent, she traveled to war-torn countries, and she'd stepped a little too far over the line. With my sibling kidnapped and running out of time, I had no option except to approach Marcus Colter for help.
Seeing Marcus again after having him break my heart over a decade ago wasn't easy, but to my relief, the old feelings I thought I might still harbor for him were completely gone. He was like a stranger to me. After meeting with him, my only emotion was gratitude that he was going to try to rescue my sister.
Before I could relax about feeling nothing for Marcus, I met Blake Colter, and realized every emotion I thought I'd have for Marcus was suddenly present for the gorgeous US senator.
It was ridiculous. I hadn't seen Blake since we were kids.
How could I have given myself to Marcus so many years ago, yet have these feelings for his twin brother, Blake?
The more time I spent with Blake, waiting for my sister to be rescued, the more confused I became about my attraction to him.
Then, my entire world came crashing down when I found out that everything I thought was true for over a decade wasn't the truth at all.
What happens when a woman finds out that a man she'd both loved and hated for over a decade never really existed at all?

New Release: The Pine Forest by Michelle Dare

One touch, one spark, two lives forever changed.
Pine and Azure. The war between the two kingdoms lasted far too long. Peace was finally established, but the survivors would never forget who fought on the front lines. Oliver Sage had a reputation for being a ruthless knight. He’d seen enough death to last a lifetime and worked on putting the past behind him, although not all would let him forget.
Addison was the only daughter of King and Queen Azure. With three brothers, she knew she’d always be protected, but she also wanted to learn how to take care of herself. She was strong, had a good heart, and wanted to be treated as an equal. Magical abilities ran in her family, and she had one no one knew of.
Oliver had given his heart to one princess, until the night he dreamed of another. Addison was the last woman he should desire, especially given who she was. However, what if she wanted him as well? They’d hated each other their entire lives, but suddenly couldn’t resist the desire which built between them. There were also those who didn’t think they should be together. Forbidden romance could only stay hidden for so long in the dark depths of the Pine Forest.

Author Bio: I made silver and turquoise jewelry for almost a decade, ended up in nursing school, then took a master’s in business. Along the way I worked in construction, as a newspaper editor, a teacher, and somehow found a career working with computers.

I love to travel, though I haven’t done enough of it. I’ve seen a lot of Russia and Mexico, not enough of England. Amsterdam is amazing, and the Romanian Alps are breathtaking.

“No noticeable typos or weird grammar errors, I'm usually knocked out of the story by those so this was nice.” – from a review of Chameleon Assassin.
I always read the 1- and 2-star reviews before I buy a book. That’s where reviewers who are bothered by poor writing and editing voice their displeasure. I’ve taught writing at a major U.S. university and written and edited in the business world most of my working life. Like the reviewer quoted above, typos, grammatical errors, and incorrect word choices will pull me out of a story. If it happens too often, it can destroy my reading enjoyment.
The English language is complex and difficult. I find errors everywhere I read. Newspapers and the internet are especially bad, but I’ve found errors in traditionally published novels, including a Pulitzer Prize winner. Almost all book blogs and other review sites have a “Review Policy” page. Almost all of them require that books submitted to them be “professionally edited.”
Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, Barnes and Noble, and all the other outlets that carry author-published books do not provide editing services, nor do they check the books they sell for quality of writing or formatting. As a result, many readers have become wary of self-published books.
Before I come across as overly smug, let me say that I would be embarrassed to present my writing without multiple editing passes. The difference between my first drafts and the final product is significant. I’m also a believer that no one is qualified to edit their own work. I do clean it up as much as I can before I send it to my editor, but I’m always shocked at how much she corrects. I’m also always pleased at how much better the books read after suffering from her attention.
Self-published books fit into three tiers. Books in the top tier are indistinguishable from books from the traditional publishing houses. They have attractive covers, good writing, are cleanly edited and properly formatted.
The second tier books are distinguished by a lack of editing. Many have interesting, compelling stories, but they have typos, word choice and grammatical errors, passive constructions, and other issues that a good editor would have caught and corrected.
Some of these authors enjoy considerable success. As one told me recently, “I really don't think that a few typos/mistakes spread around make much of a difference considering that, again, I'm reading a book now and there are typos and even a few plot holes in the story which I am enjoying anyway (she's a super best selling author!).”
The problem wasn’t typos, it was wrong word choices and poor grammar. She had paid an editor, and maintained that she couldn’t afford another one because of the money she spent on a cover and formatting. Unfortunately, her editor wasn’t very good.
The third tier books are so poorly written that they sink into oblivion fairly quickly. The chances a reader will even find them on Amazon or B&N are slim. Amazon has six million books in their store, and those with sales ranks below a million don’t show up in general searches.
The good news is that more and more self-published authors are embracing professionalism and producing a quality product. Many readers are unaware that the authors they enjoy are self-published. I’m currently reading a book by a best-selling traditionally-published author, but the book I’m reading was self-published.

Rogue by Steve Soderquist and Laura Ranger

Rogue by Steve Soderquist and Laura Ranger

Chris and Lexi Denton led what they considered a normal life.

Lexi worked as a dance instructor at a local studio, and Chris was a successful broker at a firm in downtown Miami, Florida.

When Chris gets entangled with a crime boss who utilizes his talent for numbers to cover up deadly secrets, the pair soon discover much more than just Carlos Mandini’s dark secrets, they discover their own.

Chris and Lexi Denton are not who they believed.

As they run for their lives from Mandini and his organization, who they are and what they are capable of, begins to surface. Their pasts are remembered, memories the government thought they had wiped out; the very government that created them.

Now locked in a struggle for their right to even exist, they soon find themselves combating others like them—enhanced government projects created since birth to supplement and aid other military projects. In a run for their lives they discover what they’re capable of, incredible feats of mental and physical strength and skill.

Those in charge neglected to factor in the most important lesson Chris and Lexi learned on their own...

Love supersedes science.

Culminating in an explosive ending that will leave the reader breathless, the two make it their mission to do what they know must be done—assure the Lz Project is not only destroyed, but can never be reactivated...

Even if it means they sacrifice themselves.


Steve Soderquist was quite a successful musician twenty-odd years ago and spent many years on the road. He was with numerous bands before finally settling down to a more regular life. However, the writing bug kept biting at him. Steve had started a book called, 'Mind’s Eye' when he was seventeen and it never left him. Even though the writing muscle had certainly atrophied, he was getting that tickle like you get in the back of your throat when a cold is coming on. 

Publishing his first novella 'One for the Road' motivated him to propel. When 'Farm House' was complete and those blessed two words were put down, 'THE END' he knew he found his calling.

Following up with the science fiction thriller, 'Seeds' then co-writing the romance thriller 'Rogue' with author Laura Ranger, Steve finished the short children's story 'The Littlest Princess' and is currently working on two more titles. 


Laura Ranger is a natural storyteller. She has been turning all of life into stories since she was very young. This mother of one, grandmother of three began actually writing her fictitious stories down to the delight of her friends and family. She’s been writing her tales for over twenty years. She became a published author when she put one of her short stories in a Christmas anthology in support of feeding children around the world, entitled Eight ‘Til Christmas. Once she saw one of her stories in print, she will tell you she can’t stop.

In addition to co-authoring Rogue, she has a novel called Lessons, which is almost complete. She envisions parents reading with their children. Laura discovered while writing the book, the lessons throughout the story speak to both children and adults. Additionally, she has contracted her novel Deception with Mélange Books, LLC to be released next year. She is currently writing a novel on good versus evil called Royalty, and new stories coming to her all the time.

Laura will tell you, “God blessed me with a natural gift of storytelling; it is up to me to use that gift to the best of my ability.”

Review for Ungranted Wishes by Grace Risata



It would be putting it mildly to say that full-figured Cleo Welch was in a funk. Dead end job? Check. Bank account? Running low. Sex life? Non-existent.

Her luck took a turn for the better when she stumbled upon a magic brass pot at a rummage sale. After getting drunk and rubbing things the right way, Cleo found herself in possession of one extremely attractive genie who was very grateful to be released.

What’s a girl to do when a four thousand year old genie is far more interested in satisfying her every desire, rather than granting any of her wishes? Well…she does the genie. That’s a no-brainer!

First off, I have to say that I love the female main character's name! Her name is fantastic! Cleo is just a young woman trying to get by in a rather unforgiving world where people care entirely too much about being thin and all that good stuff. That includes her awful aunt. Cleo's older brother works entirely too much as the two of them struggle to keep the family business afloat. One day Cleo finds a rare treasure that will change her life. The result is her having a very hot, male genie tied to her hip for two weeks. He goes where she does. Beck is enamored with Cleo and doesn't mind showing it. Cleo does her best not to get attached. So Beck is super hot and knows how to treat a lady. His past is intriguing, but the real shocker is the tie he already has to Cleo's family. Wow! Now I was not expecting that! What I didn't like? The fact that Cleo had so much self-loathing going on and it took a man to help that. Otherwise the story was really quite sweet and I enjoyed it! 
4 out of 5 stars!

Release Blitz for Jasmine: Kings of Guardian Book 6 by Kris Michaels

Jasmine: Kings of Guardian Book 6 
by Kris Michaels 
Genre: Military Romance 
Book 6 in the series but all books can be read standalone


Jasmine King loved her chosen profession, until assigned as personal security to Chad Nelson. The sex-fueled country superstar was either a stone cold killer or the target of a deranged psychopath. Regardless, the self-absorbed bad boy was now hers to protect, and she’d be damned if she’d fail—despite the singer’s best efforts to expand her job into a more personal one.
One minute Chad’s the reigning king of country music and in the next, an FBI murder suspect—two murders, actually. As if that’s not bad enough, he’s in the cross-hairs of someone who wants him dead. The distraction of his gorgeous bodyguard couldn’t have come at a worse time.  He’s got a front row seat to the destruction of his wildly successful and carefully constructed life.
When the race to get him to safety reveals pursuit by not only Chad’s enemies but worse, Guardian’s, positions are reversed as the country star reaches back to a military past and helps free Jasmine from a bloody confrontation.  Jasmine realizes Chad is much more than his surface appearance. Perhaps he’s what she’s needed all along.

Release Blitz for Sight Unseen by Susan Mac Nicol with Nicholas Downs

Release Blitz, Sight Unseen by International Bestselling Author Susan Mac Nicol with L.A. producer and Hollywood Actor Nicholas Downs


Sometimes we don’t see love coming

Based on an idea from L.A. producer and actor, Nicholas Downs, Susan and Nicholas have developed a story straight from the heart. In a gripping tale of lovers fighting against the odds comes a story of universal appeal about rejection and acceptance and finally finding what is real and true.


Tragedy brings together a reserved but brilliant sculptor and an outgoing gallery owner, friends whose love was sidetracked but was always meant to be deeper. BLINDSIDED SoCal natives, Nate and Cody have been friends since childhood. Both knew they were different—and the same. At seventeen, a stolen weekend in the Florida Keys drove their connection deeper and hotter than either could imagine. They were meant to be together. Then, for reasons only Nate knows, suddenly they weren’t. They’re still friends. Best friends. But they’ve moved on and found other partners. The yearning remains, however, despite the long-ago secret that drove them apart, when tragedy strikes, both men find themselves in the dark. They must grope their way back to who and what they are…which they will find in each other’s arms. Sometimes, losing one’s sight can open one’s eyes—and heart.
