Celebrating Author Michael Breen’s new release Ever The Night Road!

Title: Ever The Night Road
Author: Michael Breen
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Release Date: November 21, 2022

This is a fantasy. 

Of a City of water and glass. Of drowned things and lost memories lying just below its surface. Of concrete slums, and a decaying Oracle Tower. And a deep underground. 

It is also a fantasy of orphan children. Like Dagny Losh. She is an escape artist. Not a chosen profession but a survival tactic, thrust upon her at a young age to break free from poverty and violence, fever and flood. While others perished, Dagny emerged into a privileged world of polished brass gates and opportunity. But she is an imposter, a misfit in fine clothes. Perfumed with dirty fingernails. 

Now, at seventeen, Dagny remains rudderless and lonely. Longing for a connection to a  changing world. What she finds is a fragment of her old life, before the river washed everything away. A fragment once thought forever lost. And it will take all she has to protect it.

Ever the Night Road is a coming-of-age adventure story. Dagny and an array of companions undertake a high-stakes quest guided by the stars and ancient myth, encountering danger from both criminal and supernatural forces. Along the way, Dagny will discover the bonds of true friendship, young love and the depths of her own bravery in a brutal and enchanting world.

Jonah, Teaser Tuesday

Teasing you this Tuesday

So, I got sick–the flu sucks. I got my flu shot but it didn’t save me though. I must have gotten one of the strains that I was vaccinated for. But because misery likes company, I gave it to my husband and now he’s super sick. My sister is still holding strong, the girl has the constitution of an ox. I hope she remains that way because it really sucked.

All that said, I didn’t have a lot of time to work on Jonah last week between DayQuil shots. But I had a hypomanic recovery and I’ve written five chapters since Saturday. My goal today is only 3000 words and I haven’t started yet, so I have to get going. Yoinks!

Here is your Teaser Tuesday!

Title: A Light In The Flame (Flesh and Fire #2)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: Fantasy
Release Date: November 15, 2022

The last thing they need is the undeniable passion between them.

A Light in the Flame, the addictive and unputdownable fantasy romance
and book two in the bestselling Flesh and Fire series from #1 New York
Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout is now available!
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes book

two in her Flesh and Fire series…

The only one who can save Sera now is the one she spent her life planning to kill.

The truth about Sera’s plan is out, shattering the fragile trust forged between her and
Nyktos. Surrounded by those distrustful of her, all Sera has is her duty. She will do
anything to end Kolis, the false King of Gods, and his tyrannical rule of Iliseeum, thus

stopping the threat he poses to the mortal realm.

Nyktos has a plan, though, and as they work together, the last thing they need is the
undeniable, scorching passion that continues to ignite between them. Sera cannot
afford to fall for the tortured Primal, not when a life no longer bound to a destiny she
never wanted is more attainable than ever. But memories of their shared pleasure and

unrivaled desire are a siren’s call impossible to resist.

And as Sera begins to realize that she wants to be more than a Consort in name only,
the danger surrounding them intensifies. The attacks on the Shadowlands are
increasing, and when Kolis summons them to Court, a whole new risk becomes
apparent. The Primal power of Life is growing inside her, pushing her closer to the end
of her Culling. And without Nyktos’s love—an emotion he’s incapable of feeling—she
won’t survive her Ascension. That is if she even makes it to her Ascension and Kolis
doesn’t get to her first. Because time is running out. For both her and the realms.

Cover Reveal, Featuring Author

Featuring Author Shantel Tessier

So excited to spotlight Shantel Tessier and her cover reveal of Sinner!

Title: The Sinner
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Dark College Romance
Release Date: November 30, 2022

LITTLE DEMON

I was raised in a world where money and power are at your fingertips. My father is a LORD, a very respected member of a secret society that knows no bounds. When tragedy struck my family, we discovered we weren’t untouchable. Just when I thought life couldn’t get any worse, I was shown what hell is really like. Then he came and saved me. The devil disguised as my personal hero. But of course, nothing is for free. Not when a soul is up for grabs.

I VOW. YOU VOW. WE VOW.

Easton Bradley Sinnett—Sin—uses his power for his own sick pleasure. Like a typical Lord, he never thought about the consequences of his actions. I grew up with him, obsessed over him, craved him. He was who I pictured when I imagined doing things my body shouldn’t want.

One day, I realized he was not who I thought he was. It didn’t change anything, though, because I was already too far gone. If anything, I fell for him harder.

Every now and then, someone enters your life who flips it upside down. Sin wrecked me in the worst way, and I thanked him for it by serving on my knees.

As they say, nothing lasts forever. Men like him never stay with a woman like me. I’m what they use, not keep. So when he threw me away, I shouldn’t have been all that surprised.

My body had always craved the darker side of love. The kind that left bruises and scars. I was what most would call unholy. And when the devil whispered in my ear that he loved me, I was more than determined to show him just how devoted I could be.
