“Oh, no he did not!” Abigail yelled, throwing her hair over her right shoulder to dramatize her anger. Hope was
momentarily blinded by visions of Luci Tristan, the stuck up prom queen from her high school days. She had to fight to
hold in a giggle.
“Relax, hun. He’s obviously got some pent up anger he needs to release. Let him use you as his verbal target for now. It’s better
than him using your face as his punching bag.” Abigail stared at Hope in absolute shock.
“I cannot believe you just suggested that my Garrett has the ability to hit me.” Hope raised both brows at her younger friend, a bit
shocked herself.
“And I cannot believe you’re backing him after he called you a bitch.” The two stared at each other, stuck in a battle of estrogen.
Finally, they simultaneously burst into laughter, the air quickly clearing of all bitter anger.
“You’re right. I shouldn’t be so harsh on him. I just don’t understand what his problem is. He was perfectly fine until…” Hope
nodded knowingly when Abigail refused to finish her thought.
“Until I came along. I know what you mean, and I don’t understand it either. He acts like he wants to be my friend, and when I tell
him it’s not an option, he throws a kiddie tantrum.”
“You told him that?” Abigail’s voice was full of true shock and admiration. “Why would you tell him that?”
“Because your friendship is what matters to me. I have no interest in getting to know him.” Hope inwardly kicked herself for lying
through her teeth. No matter how many times she told herself the same thing, she knew she was lying. The magnetic pull that
Garrett sustained was addictive. Each time he was around, it grew harder to resist, and each time he was away, the hollow ache in
Hope’s chest grew. She would be absolutely insane if she didn’t recognize how she truly felt. Not that it mattered in the least. She
could never allow herself to get close to Garrett.
“You are a true friend, Hope.” Abigail, gave Hope a light hug, beaming with gratitude.
“It’s nothing. He’s just a stupid little boy. I’m eight years older than both of you. I’d feel like I was robbing the cradle!” Hope
forced herself to laugh alongside her friend, but her stomach was in knots. For once, her head and her heart were on the same page.
For once, Hope wanted to shoot both to make them stop working at all.

Book Tour plus **Giveaway** ~ Sanctuary by Pauline Creeden

18631659
Title: Sanctuary
Author: Pauline Creeden
Pub Date: October 10, 2013 (Paperback)
September 30, 2013 (eBook pre-release)
Description ~
“Left Behind for the Hunger Games Generation”
In a heart-racing thriller described as Falling Skies meets The Walking Dead, Jennie struggles to find a safe place for what’s left of her family. But it seems as though there is no place sacred, no place secure. First the aliens attacked the sun, making it dimmer, weaker, and half what it used to be. Then they attacked the water supply, killing one-third of Earth’s population with a bitter contaminate. And when they unleash a new terror on humankind, the victims will wish for death, but will not find it…When the world shatters to pieces around her, will Jennie find the strength she needs to keep going?
Advance Praise ~
“Pauline Creeden managed to mix more genres into one book than I could possibly imagine. The overall concept, aliens attacking the earth, is straight out of Science Fiction, but then you throw in a few zombies and post-apocalyptic fiction with how the dead/sick humans are acting. Overall, the entire story was charged with the adrenaline and thrills of a suspense/thriller novel, but the mood was terrifyingly eerie like a Horror story. There was almost too much sensory information for my primitive human brain to handle. Still, all of these genres combined made for one unique and fascinating story. This kind of book is of the same flavor as The Hunger Games with its originality, which I really appreciated.” – Katelyn Hensel for Readers’ Favorite
“Sanctuary is a fast-paced Christian fantasy thriller that is original and quite entertaining. The story revolves around Jennie and her family, Pastor Billy and his wife, and two brothers who are polar opposites of each other. Each chapter is presented in the point of view of Jennie, Brad or Hugh (the brothers), which gives Pauline Creeden’s Sanctuary, a multidimensional feel. The three different story-lines merge into a full-fledged fantasy/horror novel that never sags or lets up on the action. While there are Christian themes present in Sanctuary, and Jennie’s faith is an important part of who she is, I, a non-Christian, did not feel I was being preached to or proselytized. I recommend Pauline Creeden’s Sanctuary — it’s well-written and a lot of fun to read.” – Jack Magnus for Readers Favorite

Excerpt ~
When Jennie reached the back door, she saw them. Four large dog-like creatures with pinched faces like bulldogs and lion-like manes. They snarled, and one of them leapt at the window on the top half of the door when it saw her. Jennie jumped back and fell hard on the cold tile floor. The bottle of painkiller bounced across the kitchen tiles. The creature slammed against the window a second time, cracking it. She blinked hard. Her heart sunk, and the hairs on her arms stood on end. A horrendous gargling howl rent the air, causing a shiver down her spine. She held her breath and waited for the creature to slam into the door again.
“What on earth?” she whispered to herself.
When the third attempt never came, she scrambled toward the door. Blinking hard, she used the door knob to help herself stand. Out the cracked window, her mother was still out of sight, but the last of the dogs headed across the field behind her backyard.
“MOM?” Jennie called out.
The rumbling faded, and the vibrations in her chest receded with the dogs. She pulled open the door and rushed onto their back deck. “Mom, where are you?”
When she reached the banister, she looked over the side. Her mom lay sprawled with one hand on the lattice. Blood gushed from Mom’s leg and her opposite arm. Jennie’s ears rang and flooded with every beat of her heart.
Jennie didn’t know how she got to the second floor of her house, but she found herself shaking her sleeping father. How had he slept through the rumbling? “Outside, it’s Mom…”
Her father leapt from the bed. Mickey, her little brother, lay asleep and undisturbed. Dad ran down the stairs and outside in his flannel pajama bottoms and white t-shirt. He scooped Mom up to his chest and carried her inside. Blood stained his shirt in crimson.
“Jennie, call 911!”  Her father had said it at least three times before it finally registered in her brain.
She pulled the cell phone from her pocket, but it refused to connect. With a groan, she grabbed the cordless from the wall receiver, glad her heart stopped pounding in her head so she could hear.
“All operators are busy at this time,” a mechanical voice deadpanned, “Please stay on the line, and the next available operator will take your call.”
“They have me on hold, Dad. Should I hang up and try again?” She held the phone in both hands away from her face.
“No, just stay on the line.” Her father lifted the shredded jeans from Mom’s leg. “It looks like a shark bite. What on earth happened?”
Jennie took in the damage through tear-filled eyes. A huge chunk was taken from her mother’s calf, exposing the fibrous tendons that covered the bone in her leg. A bloodstain grew on the beige couch. Was she going to die? Panic rose up.
“What happened, Jennie?”
“I…I…They looked like lions, or dogs, or something. The rumbling shook the whole house…I tried to go outside to get Mom, but—” A sob blocked her throat.
Her father grabbed a throw pillow and held it against the leg. Mom’s exposed forearm laid across her chest in much the same condition as her calf.
“Grab me the duct tape.”
Jennie suddenly remembered the phone, put it back to her ear, and headed to the hall closet. She reached for the shelf above the jackets and grabbed the junk basket next to the toolbox.
“Please stay on the line. An operator will be with you shortly.”
She shoved the phone in the crook of her neck and fished through the box.  Half the contents dropped around her feet. Who cares? When her fingers wrapped around the silver duct tape, a short-lived relief sent prickles down her arms. But the urgency gripped her chest in less than a heart beat, and she threw the junk basket on the ground with the rest of the items.
“Hurry, Jennie!” her father called from the living room. “And turn on the TV. Maybe they’ll have something about what’s going on.”
She handed her father the tape and turned toward the TV. The mechanical voice on the phone came through again, followed by more easy listening.
When she clicked on the TV, the shouting and wailing began before the picture warmed up on the screen. A sideways picture of New York City broke through, with the shaky voice of the newscaster voicing over.
“What we are watching now – I can’t believe it – is live footage of Times Square,” the newscaster’s voice paused for a deep breath. “We’ve lost our man on the scene and his camera man to what appears to be some kind of new alien creature. Just a short half-hour ago, the doors to the ship that hovered above Central Park opened and these dog-like creatures flooded out.”
Jennie couldn’t pull her eyes from the screen. She straightened and dropped the phone on the hardwood. The battery popped out and skidded across the floor.

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR ~
Why on earth did I write a Christian novel that has both aliens and zombies in it?
When I was a teen/young adult and my faith was wavering at best, there were several movies out with the likely design to shake faith even more. End of the world movies were in their hay day. Alien invasion was another big one. And I couldn’t help but wonder. If something like this actually happened, would anyone be able to maintain their faith?
And now today, Zombies are on the rise.
Could aliens be reconciled with the Bible? Zombies? This is the purpose of Sanctuary.
Because of its poetic nature, the book of Revelation lends itself to a plethora of interpretation. I am not saying that my book is the only true possibility, but it could be one. Could not demons be misinterpreted as alien life forms? Might not Satan use this mirage to his advantage to explain the bitter water or the blotting out of the sun, moon, and stars?  And then there’s Revelation 9:6 – “And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.”
Zombies?
If anyone reading this book at least opens themselves up to the fact that yes, a biblical interpretation could resolve the problems between faith and an apocalyptic reality, then Sanctuary has completed its purpose.

Author Bio ~

Currently living in the state that resembles one of her favorite male body parts, (otherwise known as Florida), Cynnara Tregarth learned early how to read, write and entertain. Due to her mother, Cynnara spent way too much on books, but then again, it sent her on the quest for immortality. (She’s still looking for that.) Early in 2003, she found that route by getting her books published. Since then, she’s learned even more about love, life, sexuality, and how to annoy gods, goddesses, and siblings of all kinds. After her mom’s death in 2008, she spent time taking care of her health and relearning her craft. Now, in 2012, she’s expanding herself beyond romance into both nonfiction and mysteries. She’s not sure where it will lead. Cynnara is excited about turning the corner and allowing her life to be led to the fullest both professionally and personally.

At a costume ball decorated in honor of their online game, Cierra and Ryan put their love on the line. Everyone thinks it’s all part of the fantasy, but for Cierra and Ryan, their love games have never been more real. If only they can make it last…

So it’s going to take all her skills to seduce the dragon of her dreams to do her bidding — even if it’s the last fun thing she’ll ever do. Who knows?

2. What is your favorite genre to write? To read?
I love writing paranormal erotic romance with various sub-genres thrown in. I have written contemporaries, though I find those harder to write. I do have a tendency to write stories with BDSM elements and I enjoy that as well. To read—I’m eclectic. I love urban fantasy, most romances, fantasy, science fiction, mysteries (I love cozies!), cookbooks, thrillers, and history books. Yes, I love learning!

3. Is there anything about one of your books you totally hate and wish you could change, but everyone else seems to like?
I think I lack a certain sense of humour in my books, something I wish I did have. However, people seem to think there is humour there. Which I find hysterical. The one book I’d love to do something more with is Games Empaths Play. I’d love to perhaps shift the relationship of the brothers to cousins—but most people love how it’s played out in the story itself. But that’s just me.

4. Where do you do most of your writing?
I do most of my writing in my office. Occasionally I’ll do some digital recording outside while walking my dog, then transcribing it in my office. Most of it is in the office or occasionally out at the local Starbucks or at work.

5. Who are your favorite authors?
Yes. Oh, you want a list. LOL Let’s see. This is not close to being complete. Dawn Montgomery, Maggie Nash, Lexxie Cooper, Paige Shelton, Carolyn Haines, Treva Harte, Jet Mykles, Kayelle Allen, Chloe Neill, Suzanne Johnston, just to name a few.

6. What’s the one genre you absolutely will NOT write about? Why?
At one point—this would be historical—but I broke that when I submitted a erotic BDSM short tale to a publisher just recently. *sigh* I know, right? I love history and I hate getting details wrong, so I normally don’t like doing historicals. So the one genre I won’t do—biographies. They’re not my thing. Watch this change in time. LOL Though I don’t know if I could do straight women’s fiction. I don’t know if I could unless I could do it with paranormal flair or something.

7. Do you often use people you know as characters? And do you tell them if you do?
If I have permission, I might ask people if I can use something they say in a book. I might even use certain aspects about them in a book. The only person I used specifically was my mom—and she demanded that I put her in. It was before she got sick with lung cancer—so yeah—I did what she asked. She’s my mom and she was a major romance lover and one of my best cheerleaders ever.

8. Have you had any creepy fan experience yet?
I had a couple when I first started. Luckily since I’ve had creepy stalking experiences in person—the online things didn’t phase me as much. So, I dealt with them and took them to a friend of mine who dealt with online issues in his capacity as a professional. He told me what to do and say. After a while, it stopped.

9. Does your family know about ALL the books/stories you’ve written, or are you keeping a few hidden?
Okay, my sisters know about it all. My dad theoretically knows I write romance. He doesn’t understand exactly what I write and I don’t necessarily explain the kind of romance I write. We leave it at that because it’s better for all involved. LOL My male’s side of the family—they know and honestly, I warn them—I write hot, I write stuff you might blink and go OMG, so you might not want to read it. It’s not stopped a couple of his cousins. They like me. 😀

11. Last, but not least, is there anything you would like to say to your fans?
Thank you. Thank you for your support, your reviews, your feedback. Without you, I am not able to do the things I do. Without your support, I’m limited in what I can finish and what I am able to accomplish. YOU are the reason I’m still here after all these years. You rock and I’m honoured to be able to provide new stories and to continue writing. So thank you for all you do for me.

Book Review ~ Enchantment (Book #1) & Taken (Book #2) by Charlotte Abel

What it’s about ~

Enchantment ~

Channie Belks is trying to hide the fact she’s a witch. Sorta hard to do after her parents slap a chastity curse on her for flirting with “dirty-minded, non-magical, city-boys.” She can’t even walk by a hot guy without zapping him. There’s a way to break the curse; but one mistake could kill her. It’s not worth the risk………until she meets a certain BMX champion named Josh. Suddenly, the threat of death isn’t such a deal-breaker.

Taken ~

Bound by love and magic. Betrayed by those they trust. Not everyone survives. In this second installment of The Channie Series, Josh and Channie are tested physically and emotionally as the tough choices they are forced to make affect not only their future together but their very existence. The risks are high but the rewards are even higher.

********************

Absolutely awesome books!! I loved the premise, as it was a bit different than most I have read! I especially loved the different twist on witchcraft. Having your name that you are given completely rule how your magic works puts a whole new perspective on choosing a name for your child! It is a refreshing change from all the typical stories that involve witches and witchcraft! The characters were great and well rounded. I fell in love with all of them right away! I loved it so much I went and bought the second book as soon as I finished this one and already have it read as well! The second book as just as good if not better than the first one! It takes up right where the first book left off and has a slightly darker story, but still a very good read! I had a very hard time putting this book down and trying to keep myself from reading so fast to see what happens next. Can’t wait to read the next one!

The stakes are higher than ever before, with his soul, his friends and even the fate of Heaven and Earth in jeopardy. If he fails, Rhyan stands to lose more than he ever feared. Will true love be denied? It will take everything he’s got to break down the traps Lucifer puts in his way. New lines are drawn and old scores are settled, and Rhyan is in for the fight of his life. With Abigail as the prize, and humanity in the balance, he will stop at nothing to claim……….Hell’s Gift.

********************

Just like the first book, I absolutely loved this one!! I was very happy to get to learn more about Rhyan! The story line was awesome! This one I could also not put down once I started reading it. Through the whole book I was urging him on and couldn’t wait to get to the end to see how it all played out, but at the same time trying to read slower so it would last longer because it was so good! I loved that we also got a glimpse of how Kendra, Adam, and the baby were doing after everything that happened in the last book! I don’t know if there will be a third book or not, but if there is I can’t wait!!

About the Author ~

I was born and raised in the western suburbs of Chicago. The Windy City is an amazing place, and I love living close enough to it now to enjoy all it has to offer (without the crazy downtown traffic). So my incredibly supportive husband and I made our home in the ‘burbs, where we currently live with a few furry family members. The man of my life knows better than anyone else how movies, music, and novels have influenced by writing. In fact, he is privy to exactly which stories I’ve drawn inspiration from, and the list can be somewhat embarrassing. But he has grown to appreciate my obsession with certain characters, authors, and themes. He makes me laugh constantly and has helped me grow into the person I am today. For that, I am incredibly grateful. I continue to be amazed by the support I get from family and friends, they have been instrumental in spreading the word about my first few books. My hobbies include running, photography (and photo-blogging), music, reading, and sports. We love watching super-hero movies, hockey, and football.

About My Writing ~

I have a huge soft spot for Young Adult and New Adult fiction. Our time as teenagers shape the person we become as adults. It is when we begin to discover who we really are, our limits, our worth, and the kind of people we want to surround ourselves with (or run in the opposite direction from). It is about growth on so many levels, physical and physiological, psychological and social, emotional and spiritual. The challenges a normal young adult faces without any complications is staggering. To thrive on top of that in the face of life or death struggles, emotional loss, heartache, tragedy, and against all odds is monumental. Young adults hang on the edge of childhood innocence. They dip their toes in the shallow end of adulthood. The twilight of our youth is an extraordinary time, and that is what draws me to those novels. I love paranormal stories and supernatural characters. Some of my favorite authors include Richelle Mead, Karen Marie Moning, Maggie Stiefvater, JR Ward, and yes, even Stephenie Meyer. If you are familiar with any of their books, you’ll see that the one thing I live for in a good story is watching a strong main character get dragged kicking and screaming into love while the world is forever changed around them. Moning and Ward are experts at creating such journeys for their characters, albeit in very different worlds. I am forever striving to create such stories of my own.

Author Interview ~

1. What are the titles of your books, and tell me about each one.
The Destroyer (The Destroyer Series) ~
The Destroyer is about Nur, an 18-year-old girl with psychic abilities whose best friend just left for college. At first she doesn’t think much of her talents, using them for simple parlor tricks. But then she starts to have dark dreams and visions, all of which center around horrific natural disasters and a mysterious man who is determined to end the world. Around the same time she meets Daniel, who seems to know more than any human should about the creation of man and the greater universe. Being near him throws her psychic senses out of whack, and she doesn’t know whether she is just nervous around the first guy to pay her any attention or if she should listen to her subconscious and in run the opposite direction. And the more she learns about Daniel, the worse things look for mankind. If Daniel is really the monster from her dreams, does she stand any chance at stopping him?

Overthrown ~
Overthrown is a post-apocalyptic story set in what was once Canada. What’s left of the human population in North America has been organized into territories, each governed by a Baron. Originally things were done this way so resources, what little mankind had left, could be evenly distributed. But the Barons grew greedy over time and now most families live in poverty while the elite class has access to food, medicine, and technology. In this world is Lily, a sixteen-year-old who lives with her parents and two brothers on a small farm in the territory of Rutikan. Their Baron is a true tyrant, taking everything for the wealthy and leaving nothing for the common folk. He even arranges marriages to ensure the richest bloodlines continue. The story opens with a declaration from the Baron that Lily is going to be married to Kristof Kettle, the only son of one such elite family. She is horrified by the idea and spends
every waking hour trying to figure a way out. She meets Slade, a runaway from another territory who has stopped in their town on his way east to the Capitol. He shares her independence and taste for defiance. Upon the public announcement of Lily and Kristof’s engagement, she decides to make her move. Her bold and sudden proclamation leaves her family, her fiancé’s family, the Baron, and the entire town in shambles. Forced to run away or face prosecution, she takes a chance and flees with Slade. They head east together, hiding from the authorities and the personal guard of the Kettle family. Word of Lily’s insubordination spreads like wildfire, and soon enough entire territories are rebelling. As the pair gets closer to the Capitol, it becomes clear that Slade has mutinous aspirations of his own. Lily must decide if he truly cares for her, or if she is just a pawn in his plot to take down the Barons.

2. What is your favorite genre to write? To read?
My favorite genre to write is paranormal, but I always have a love story tied into my work. It isn’t always straight forward and easy, though. I don’t do “traditional” romance novels. In fact, the harder the two characters fight it, the better it is when they finally give in (insert evil laugh). My favorite genre to read paranormal/sci-fi stories of almost any target audience, YA/NA or Adult.

3. Is there anything about one of your books you totally hate and wish you could change, but everyone else seems to like?
Not that I know of… but I’m still fresh meat on the market haha!

4. Where do you do most of your writing?
I do most of my writing on the recliner in our spare bedroom. It’s right next to the window and I get lots of natural light. I can set a bottle of water and various snacks on the ledge and put my feet up for hours! I am really looking forward to the day I have a deck and can sit outside with my laptop!

5. Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite authors are Karen Marie Moning, Stephenie Meyer, and J.R. Ward. Yeah, I know, I have a thing for vampires and alpha males. Twilight is the series that got me interested in writing, I really liked Meyer’s style and stayed up many nights reading (and rereading) those novels. Moning and Ward is an incredible ability to write strong characters who literally get dragged kicking and screaming into love. I live for characters who start off hating each other, struggle to work together, end up depending on one another, and finally (FINALLY) find their way into one another’s arms. As much as I hate it, I live for those “almost” moments between two characters and secretly adore being forced to wait forever for them to finally (FINALLY) get together.

6. What’s the one genre you absolutely will NOT write about? Why?
I don’t think I’d ever write nonfiction or historical fiction. Why? Well, for one, I don’t like being tied to facts. I mean, I do love researching topics that interest me, but I refuse to be limited by what’s real. That’s why I love the paranormal/sci-fi genre so much. Anything is possible. The rules can be different—or nonexistent! I like coming up with worlds and abilities and characters that go beyond preconceived notions or expectations, but still have flaws that we all can identify with. I need the ability to abandon the laws of reality. Escapism is an element I need in order to enjoy a
story.

7. Do you often use people you know as characters? And do you tell them if you do?
As many authors do, I’m sure, I take pieces of people I know and use them in my stories. I do have one character who is literally a friend of mine. He is aware, in fact, we talked about the character and I even let him help pick out the guy’s name (names are hugely important to me with my characters, but that’s a whole other topic). This character wasn’t the leading male, but he played an important part in the story. Actually, many of my characters are inspired by character’s I’ve read about or seen in movies. Again, I usually piece together aspects from several individuals and
create someone completely new.

8. Have you had any creepy fan experience yet?
No, same answer as before, I’m too fresh on the market!

9. Does your family know about ALL the books/stories you’ve written, or are you keeping a few hidden?
So far they know about everything. I am pretty honest with them on whether or not I think they’ll like the story. More people seem to enjoy Overthrown because it doesn’t have anything supernatural in the story. But I have been surprised by a few folks close to me who enjoyed The Destroyer more. The project I am working on now will most likely be a little too adult for some relatives… sorry Mom!

10. Last, but not least, is there anything you would like to say to your fans?
The best thing you can do for a new writer is leave an honest review on Amazon, and spread the word if you enjoyed the story. My family and friends did an incredible job of sharing my author page and Amazon links when I first published. The true test will be if readers who don’t know me at all do those things. And don’t be afraid to reach out to me, I love hearing from folks who have questions about the stories or characters. I love talking about writing and selfpublishing and characters and story ideas… or just sharing book recommendations! Or we can always swoon over our favorite alpha male characters together ( cough Barrons cough) or whine about how we have to wait how many months? for the next Black Dagger Brotherhood novel.

Thanks so much for taking the time to support indie authors, we are all so incredibly grateful for your encouragement!

Overthrown by A. P. Bartels

Amazon US I Amazon UK I Amazon CA

Book Synopsis ~
I am to be married. My fiancé is good looking, well-educated, and well-connected. His family is one of the richest in the territory, and is closely related to Baron Feldsen, the man that rules these lands. Once we are wed I’ll never have to work on my parents’ meager farm again. I’ll never have to barter for meat or sell handmade candles and soap so we can have warm clothes. I won’t have to lift a finger for the rest of my life. This marriage will scrape the poverty out from underneath my dirty fingernails and spoil me rotten.

And I’ll do anything to get out of it.

Baron Feldsen has arranged this union, and I am going to betray him. My betrothed’s family is eager to turn my brothers into their private servants, and I am going to deny them. My parents trust me to go through with this in order to stay out of trouble, and I am going to disappoint them. I don’t know what this kind of rebellion will do to our little town, or to the greater lands, but I will not back down.

My only ally is a stranger, a man named Slade who happened to be passing through town when all this started. He is stubborn, confident, independent, and handsome in a dark way that threatens to expose me. Slade knows what to do and how to keep my family safe. In order to stay alive, I’ll have to trust him completely. Now we are on the run together, and it’s clear Slade has mutinous aspirations of his own. Does he care at all for me? Or am I just the symbol he is using to lead this revolution?

Soundtrack ~
These two albums were played nonstop when I was writing Overthrown.

“Scripted” album by Icon for Hire

This album is all about breaking out from the mold everyone has put us in. It’s about being the first one to stand up against something that we all know is wrong, but are too afraid to face.
“I’m gonna write myself a new start
Come on, dry your eyes, meet me on the other side
Run as fast as you can and we’ll make it alive
We know better now, we don’t have to live like this.”

Every song is an anthem for Lily’s journey and the album is great from the opening overture to the very last note.

“Evanescence” album by Evanescence

What I love about this album is the movement of emotions from one song into the next. The first song is radio-ready, so for me, the album really starts with track #2. From that point on the album is nearly flawless in flow.

“Made of Stone” is the epitome of Lily and Kristof’s relationship. She must turn off every emotion with him. All it would take is one weakness exposed, and Kristof would pounce. She can’t give him a single thing to use against her.

And there are certain songs I always associate with certain scenes ~

“The Grey” by Scripted ~ The end of Chapter 12
“What We Will Never Know” by Innerpartysystem ~ The date in Chapter 8
“Graduation” by Gemini ~ The dreams in Chapter 38
“Made of Stone” by Evanescence ~ Lily’s speech in Chapter 42

The Destroyer by A. P. Bartels

Amazon US I Amazon UK I Amazon CA

Book Synopsis ~
Less than a year from now I won’t be alive. Well, in a manner of speaking. I will not be on Earth anymore. I will not live among humans anymore. For all intents and purposes, I will be dead. You would think an eighteen-year-old psychic would have seen something like that coming, right? But by the time I figured out what I was really witnessing in my nightmares, what the horrific deaths and the demons chasing me truly meant, it was too late. Nur is soon-to-be senior in high school whose best friend just left for college, leaving her behind to face her last year before graduation alone. Forced to venture out on her own, she happens upon a stranger named Daniel. He drives her crazy and yet captures her curiosity with his odd nature. Something is very different about this man. He is dark and mysterious. Stronger than the laws of physics. Arrogant beyond the limits of my patience. More intelligent than anyone Nur had ever met. Beautiful beyond perfection.

And he is here to destroy us.

********************

Interview with J. L. Hickey ~

1.What are the titles of your books, and tell me about each one.
Secret Seekers Society and the Beast of Bladenboro follows the young protagonists Hunter Glenn, and Elly Ann through an adventure ripe with adversity, paranormal monsters, secret societies, and most haunting of all, a life without their parents. The book follows both, the sibling’s emotional struggle from their parent’s sudden loss, as well as their physical journey into a new and strange “home”, an ancient and creepy mansion known only as the Belmonte Estate. It is here where they first learn of their new guardian, an eccentric old man named Professor Clandestine and the rest of the mansion’s caretakers. Tossed into their bedroom, and locked away under the pretense of “safety concerns” it does not take long for the children to hatch an escape plan. Follow the children as they slowly unravel the secrets of their parent’s true identities, the origin of the strange Mansion, and their inheritance into an ancient secret society of monster hunters known as Seekers.

The Deity Chronicles
A young boy grows up secluded in his small village hidden to the modern world. It is here where he finds the truth behind his secretive village and that of Earth’s sister realm “Valor” and the godlike role he and his friends play between the two realms. This is a fantasy based epic geared to all ages who love the rich worlds of fantasy. Read a fascinating tale that unravels the mysteries of the world, the truth behind creation, and a ravishing war that could come to the cost of all existence as we know it.

Wergild: A Novella
A thought provoking novella that will leave you thinking for hours after finishing its last chapter. Adrian is a small framed scholarly teen, born and raised in a world where warriors and brute strength define one’s worth. Living under the large shadow of his father, Pherick, the village’s beloved guildsmen and head trainer, Adrian finds himself labeled as an outcast from society, finding solace and the only thing he’s good at, writing. The Novella tackles some heavy topics such as, religion, reality within the theory of simulacra, that steadily delves deeply into a meta-fictional narrative that honors the relationship between gods, authors, and their fictional creations. For those not caught up on the multiple layers one can pull from the narrative, the story arc itself is filled with adversity! A lovable and flawed protagonist must unravel the conniving plot of a fast talking and forked tongue Uncle, who looks to be plotting some sort of plan to tear apart his family.

2. What is your favorite genre to write? To read?
Honestly, I don’t have a favorite genre to write in. It may seem like I do, judging by my current library of books, all of which fall under the Young Adult genre with a fantasy and/or supernatural spin. I do love writing about mythological creatures and ancient relics, but I would not limit myself in saying it is favorite by any means. In fact, if you were to peak onto my computer’s hard drive and pull up my fiction folder, you would see dozen of short stories that fall into the adult literary fiction subgenre. It may be surprising to find out that there is a darker side to my writings. In-between my full length novels I tend to dabble in darker, edgier fiction. I stray away from the fantastical and paranormal and focus more towards the bizarre and taboo. For instance one of my shorts is about a lost soul, a misguided artist who wants nothing more than to give his body to his final work of art, using his carcass as his paint and the roads of his hometown as the canvas. Another is about a man who suffers from a rare disease where he can feel no physical pain and how he seeks out guidance to fill in the emotional gaps of his life. Imagine falling in love and never being able to feel your partner’s embrace. All of these stories will be coming out in an anthology later next year that I will be self-publishing. So I range from kid friendly YA to Adult fiction borderline modern horror. In a nutshell, I like to stay diverse. Same can be said for my reading. I love J.K. Rowling, Stephen King, Dan Brown, Chuck Palahniuk, Judy Blume, indie author Justin Paul Osborne, I also love autobiographies, any and all of them.

3. Is there anything about one of your books you totally hate and wish you could change, but everyone else seems to like?
I find this question a little bizarre. I only publish stories I love from start to finish. By the time I release anything it is polished to the very best of my abilities, and if there was anything in the manuscript I hated, I would have probably dropped it on the second, third, or fourth revision. So, my honest answer is no, not that I hate.

4. Where do you do most of your writing?
I have a very strict writing routine, and if it is broken in any way I find myself unable to get into the “zone” and often times staring at a blank screen, or getting caught up in so many distractions that I find myself rewriting the same sentence over and over. It’s pretty frustrating. It has to be early in the morning (the earlier the better), dogs locked out of my office (I have two giant Danes and mutt named Pickles, I love them, but they soak up all my attention and I get no writing done if they’re in the room with me) and a freshly brewed cup of joe. If my wife is home, or it becomes too late into the afternoon it’s pretty much a waste of time for me to even try. I need complete
silence, zero distractions, I need to be able to retreat from the real world and allow my creativity to become the focus.

5. Who are your favorite authors?
I love J.K. Rowling, Stephen King, Dan Brown, Chuck Palahniuk, Judy Blume, indie author Justin Paul Osborne.

6. What’s the one genre you absolutely will NOT write about? Why?
Romance… I mean, hell it’s only one of the bestselling genres out there. You would think I would want to capitalize on it, but I am just not a romance genre sort of guy. It’s probably the one genre I won’t read, let alone dedicate a year or two to write. Hell, I am a pretty romantic dude too (just ask the wife, hehehe), but when it comes to fiction… barf. Sorry, just not my cup of tea. Unless I can convince you Fight Club or Choke was a love story…

7. Do you often use people you know as characters? And do you tell them if you do?
I love this question! It’s a little known fact that almost all of the characters in Secret Seekers Society are based off friends and family, including me (Uncle Joe!). S.S.S. got its start two Christmas seasons ago when I got really sick and laid off of work. I had written novel years back called Deity Chronicles, and my sister had made me promise to someday write a story that stared my niece and nephew as its protagonists. So, there I was sick as a dog, out on leave, and being bored out of my mind on bed rest. So I remembered the promise I made to my sister, and I knew I had one month to write up a short novella that starred Hunter and Elly (my real life niece and nephew). So, I started up with the simple concept that they were monster hunters, and the next thing I knew I was crumbling up this ten page start to a novella and outlines a six part novel series. The thing just grew crazy out of control. Once I had the outline set for the first two books, I wrote up the first six chapters and started sending it out to friends and the response was overwhelming. Anyway, originally the book was only going to be released to my family for Christmas presents… well after so many wonderful comments I decided to run with the YA novel series and scrap the novella. Now, as I am putting on the finishing touches on the second book, 90% of the characters are based off real people in my life. As for the rest of my works, they are all purely fictional characters. I have found it very fun to incorporate the people in my life into these fictional alter ego’s. Hell, the evil Declan Aten is named off of a good friend of mine’s six year old.

8. Have you had any creepy fan experience yet?
I wish! I don’t think I am quite at that level of fandom yet. I do have about five or six fans who really have helped me keep up my spirits and drive. The indie world can be a scary and dark place, without the right support group around you, it would be easy to drown in self-doubt. There will always be naysayers trying to tie rocks to your feet.

9. Does your family know about ALL the books/stories you’ve written, or are you keeping a few hidden?
Well, I don’t hide anything, but there are certain very mature themed short stories of mine out on the internet that I haven’t gone out of my way to send my mother the links to lol. Like I said, there is two sides of my writings, kid friendly magical adventures, and dark, twisted, and sometimes taboo stories that explore some of the darkest corners of the human experience.

10. Last, but not least, is there anything you would like to say to your fans?
Sure… I like all five of you. I would like to have more of you =)
Honestly though, I have had the pleasure of meeting some very amazing people who have vaunted up my own self esteem. People who have helped me redefine my own merit and the value of what I can offer as an author. Without them, who knows… maybe I would have given up after the first S.S.S. Now, I have over fifty five star reviews and a decent following of people who enjoy what I have to offer.
