DESCRIPTION

Hansel never asked to be a hero. He never wanted to fall in love with Rapunzel, Queen of the East. He didn’t ask to be raised by Gothel the Wretch, and he certainly never wanted to be credited for her arrest. But more than any of that, Hansel never wanted to lie: but he did. He lied about everything. He thought that he was done with it all when he and his sister Gretel retreated into the woods to reclaim their land, but he should have known better. 

Hansel needs to find a way to fix this, otherwise he will be responsible for Grimm’s destruction, or that is what he thinks. As Hansel isn’t the only liar in Grimm.

The Accalia by H.L. Girton


Hello! I am author H.L. Girton. I am guest blogging today and sharing the news about my debut novel and brand new release of The Accalia. I would like to discuss a topic in relation to my novel revolving around the importance of truth and lies being present within a young adult paranormal romance fiction and how it works so well with it.

When writing The Accalia I had to think about this topic a lot. Living in everyday life, everyone is faced with the question is that the truth or is it a lie? We, as humans, have to constantly be watching and answering that question everywhere we go and through every milestone and event in our lives. For The Accalia, I had to take into account that the main character, Genesis, would be dealing this this conflict on a whole different level. Teens and young adults face reality and the truth in such a way that becomes very dramatic and intense. When confronted with the possibility of loved ones lying or that they are being withheld from things that are important, it can become quite emotional. So I had to take the struggles that one would deal with when what they thought was the truth for their whole life and found out it was a complete fabricated lie and incorporate that into my novel.

As an author, it was important for me to have this struggle in my novel. This is something that many teens and young adults are faced with often. The ability to connect to such a conflict and relate to the character and her emotions really draws the reader in. With a young adult paranormal romance, it works well with it just for that reason. The age group is still a group, in my opinion, that is sorting out conflicts and emotions on the same level that is experienced by the character. Having that connection to the characters intensifies the story to relate on a more personal level. It makes you feel as if you are really there and sharing that same feeling with the character. With paranormal, it is an imaginative world that takes the idea of life and brings in what we can only imagine to be real. So having that struggle in determining if life was really what they thought it was and accepting the truth for what it really is and understanding what they thought was true was really all lies. It’s one of the hardest pills to swallow.

Still being a somewhat younger adult (I refuse to believe I am nearing thirty) I have had to face similar struggles in my life to accepting reality for what it really was when the lies were so much easier to accept and remain in denial. Have you had a similar experience or found yourself in a scenario where you were faced with confronting lies or accepting a truth you weren’t ready for?

Now, Genesis must discover if she is strong enough to fulfill her destiny. Will she learn to accept the truth before it is too late.

Excerpt Three:

Liam slid his hand under the small of my back without breaking our connection. His arm wrapped firmly around my waist supporting me slightly before he adjusted me to fit underneath him. He pressed his hips into mine. All the tension that had built up between us melted away as we lost ourselves in one another. We explored each other in ways we had not yet dared. Everything until that moment had been lustful, a tease in the hindsight of temptation.
We were more than physical attraction, though our bodies burned and ached with desire to appease the longing for one another’s touch. Somehow, in some way, the universe had a hand in our destiny, pushing us together, encouraging our union. The fight to stay away was lost with a single touch. The urgency to protect him from himself was more damaging than giving in and fulfilling what was always meant to be. We were and always would be stronger as one. It was why I would always choose Liam.

Think You Know About Self-Publishing? Think Again- E Van Lowe




The ad promised riches.

All I had to do was purchase their product to learn the secrets of self-publishing, and the money would start rolling in.

Fortunately for me, I’d bought enough snake oil over the years from ads that promised I could rub away that ugly scratch on my car’s fender, or let a little robot clean my apartment while I relaxed.  Which is an excellent idea—if only it worked. The truth is there is no magic bullet, and ads that promise one are more than misleading, they’re deceiving.

There’s nothing more misleading than all the information that’s out there about self-publishing. If you are a writer interested in self-publishing, everywhere you turn you’re hearing conflicting information: Self-publishing is hard, self-publishing is easy, self-published authors don’t make any money. Use Scrivener, don’t use Scrivener. It’s enough to make you go batty.




The truth is, self-publishing isn’t for everyone.  In my new webinar, The 5 Big Lies You’ve Been Told About Self-Publishing, And Why They Tell Them, I break down the 5 big lies. Afterwards I discuss all of your publishing options so you can make an intelligent choice about which option is best for you.

Those of you who know me know I’ve had a lot of success in my 30 year career as a writer: Bestselling novels, a 2015 award winning novel, novels optioned by Hollywood, movie scripts, and I am an Emmy and Academy Award nominated writer. When it comes to writing, I know how to be successful, and I’d like to share some of my success secrets with you.

Adding Depth to Words with the Magic of Music Playlists with Nollen Bradley


Adding Depth to Words with the Magic of Music Playlists

The unique sound, mixed with the right key followed by the perfect notes strung together and injected with the word you want to hear or word describing something you have experienced. All formed together into a sound that creates an emotion or just simply, bring back some distant memory. For better or worse we seem to carry an unknown desire to reach above ourselves to experience these things with the help… of music. Whether it to be classical, outlaw country to heavy metal.

What is more supernatural than the right song at the right time to imbed a feel. In reality, it’s above the paranormal. What other force on earth can change our view of situations or make us feel like we are not alone. This powerful force has done everything for humanity… good and bad. It has caused lives to be lost, lives to be saved. Music has caused honorable men and women to stand and shed a tear from pride.

We hear it as we watch our favorite sporting event before a big play increasing the intense moment and the suspense. Hence, the reason more and more authors are using playlists. It increases the ability to create an almost 3d feel to the words they write on paper. It assists the process by bringing to life the emotion for which we try and create.

Guardian unforgiven, Werewolf Awaken takes this to a new level. Mark Melbourne a small-town Kansas veterinarian has always heard music. To him, it is as if the band themselves were playing. Every word, every note, Right down to the baseline and drum sets. He never understood why. Mark usually hears outlaw Country but after meeting a newcomer to the area, the music changes, as does he.

From the cool sound of Staind front man Aaron Lewis to Metallica. Creating the environment that shows the exact changes Mark experiences, not that he wants to. Constantly being pushed into decisions he never wanted to make. As the story turns dark, so do the songs Mark hears, telling him something or just warning him. Hard to know, only he can determine their meaning.

In today’s multimedia World, a music playlist is a great tool for authors. It gives readers another avenue to the insight from which the authors mind was at the time of writing. The playlist adds value to the work because it gives a sound behind the words described on the paper. Pushing the story in the readers mind.

Take a look at my new book Guardian Unforgiven: Werewolf Awaken on Amazon, NOOK, Kobo and ibooks

Excerpt 3

"...Getting up slowly recouping from the severe burning lacerations on my back, fighting the urge to turn, the Alpha female hits my side throwing me back onto the ground as she jumps on top. Her enormous body weight started to crush me. I punch her in the ribs with everything I had but it was only enough to piss her off.
 I grabbed a piece of drift wood next to me and I jam it in the Alpha’s jaw sideways with my hands on each side of her mouth, and push as far back as I could. She started chomping the wood as I keep pushing with every ounce of strength I could muster.

 The growling from the irritated Alpha was deafening. Her saliva drooling over my face as the splinters from her grinding the drift wood fell into my eyes. My aggravation escalating, without thought, I started feeling the beast within start to emerge."

Do We Write What We Should Be Writing? - Guest Blog Echoes of Love by Tanith Davenport





In Echoes of Love, my heroine Kala is a paranormal journalist and loves her work, but has a secret desire to be a fiction writer. Specifically, she wants to try erotica - in this instance, Bigfoot erotica.

I can't say I've ever wanted to write Bigfoot erotica myself, but I can understand writing one thing while secretly wanting to write another. When I first began writing I had grandiose ideas of literary fiction, of getting my books on the largest display at Waterstone's and winning prizes for my dazzling prose.

The thing was, I didn't really want to write that. I didn't even read it that much. I've read a few Booker winners, but most of them I finished because I felt like I should, not because I was enjoying them.

It was about that time that I started a writing course with Writers' News. My assigned mentor was a reader for the Romantic Novelists' Association and together we started working on a romance novel, which ultimately became Photograph. I joined the RNA New Writers' Scheme, but even then I considered myself a writer of commercial women's fiction rather than romance. There was something about romance that screamed "junk" to me.

I'm well aware now that I was completely wrong, although I've since heard the same from many other people.

After I finished my debut novel, which was The Hand He Dealt, I took it to a publishing workshop to have the first chapter and synopsis looked over by a Book Doctor. She told me I should be selling it as erotica, because "that's the best sex scene I've read in a long time". Well, with praise like that, what can you do?

So I did market it as erotic romance, and it was picked up by Totally Bound shortly afterwards, and the rest is history.

I have friends who say they want to write, but they frequently dismiss romance as not worth the bother and erotic romance as nothing more than smut. If I hadn't realised that erotic romance was what I should be writing, what I loved to write, I would never have got published and wouldn't be able to do what I love.

So now I tell them - if you like romance, or horror, or crime, write it. Don't think you have to write literary fiction or it's not worth trying. Write what you enjoy and what readers enjoy.

It's worth it.

Tagline: Kala wants to catch a ghost. The ghost wants to catch her. What does Tor want?

Book Description:

Paranormal writer Kala Westenra, staying with her best friend Vika in Norway, is hunting for a new subject for an article, and finds it when she hears footsteps in the hall twenty minutes before Vika's hot brother Tor Viitanen arrives home. This, Vika tells her, is the vardoger - a Norwegian ghost, a future echo which always precedes a person's arrival.

Kala plans to stake out the hallway to catch the vardoger in the act - and is shocked when, on its arrival, it kisses her. Her feelings for Tor have been hidden ever since she first met him two years ago; could it be that the vardoger is acting on Tor's secret desire for her?

As Kala and Tor work together to understand what is happening with the spirit, their longing for each other begins to overtake them - but the vardoger has more to show them than they expected...

Excerpt:

Tor reached over the arm of the sofa, pulled up a cushion and threw it at her. Vika threw it back, knocking over her wineglass at the same time.
“Here, let me get you a refill.” Kala reached for the bottle, but it was empty. Vika stood and made for the door, picking up her jacket from the hook on the back on her way past.
“I’ll run out and get another one. Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.”                           
Kala launched the cushion after her, hitting the door instead.
“I can see why you and my sister get on so well.” Tor raised an eyebrow. “You’re both drunks.”
“Oh, shut up. I’m still technically a student. I can drink if I like.”
“Soon to be a writer and they drink a lot, too, I’ve heard.”
Kala laughed. “I don’t know about journalists, though. Although I’d quite like to be a writer, too—novels or something. I don’t know what kind yet.”
“I’ll keep my eyes open for your hot new release.”
Ooh.
Kala held his gaze, her insides stirring strangely. Maybe it was the alcohol, but there was something in the words hot release that made a rush of heat flow through her body, her skin tingling.
After a long moment, Tor spoke again. “So, Vika thinks you need a man.”
“I don’t need a man. I may want a man.”
“Oh, yeah?” Something flickered across Tor’s face, his eyes glowing. He shifted onto his knees, leaning over the arm of the sofa, his face close to hers. “What sort of man do you want?”
“Oh, you know. We hotshot journalists don’t like to be tied down.” Kala gave him a taunting look, leaning closer to him so that their faces were almost touching. “Tall, dark, commitment-phobic. That’ll do me.”
“I can help you there.”
A sudden rush of movement and Tor’s mouth was on hers.
This is a bad idea. He’s Vika’s brother.
But somehow she no longer cared and Tor was right here and he was moving, moving over the arm of the sofa as they were still kissing, then his body was pressing down onto hers and they were still—
To hell with it, she thought and arched up against him, tangling her fingers in his hair.
She felt his hard cock through his jeans as it brushed against her leg, sending a dart of wet heat straight to her cunt. His hands ran down, caressing her neck, her shoulders, cupping her breasts and rolling his thumbs over her nipples through her bra.
Oh, God—
Then the sound of the lock clicking.
Immediately, Tor rolled off her and onto the floor, twisting round to position himself back at the side of the sofa. Kala sat up and ran a hand through her hair.
Shit, that was close.

“Here's the wine,” Vika announced as she came through the door, shopping bag in hand. “I got back as fast as I could.”
