Dating Maggie from @limitlessbooks: by @authormjgreenway

✩✩99 CENTS NOW!!!✩✩

With her 25th birthday looming, Maggie Jennings makes herself a promise… 

She will get a boyfriend and an acting gig within the year or break-up with Tinsel Town for good! 

She has a cool job as a movie studio guide, and Botoxed blondes and traffic jams have even started to grow on her. She’s using a new

dating app and has a dating vlog—but she yearns for more. 

Cliff Kincade is in L.A. for a wedding, but he’d much rather be back home at his Oregon ranch… 

Still stinging from a divorce, he’s gun-shy about women. But when he meets a cute, curvy tour guide, he’s surprised by the chemistry

between them. His ranch keeps him in Oregon, though, and Maggie’s Hollywood dreams keep her in L.A., a situation that can’t

possibly work. 

Proximity isn’t a guarantee a relationship will succeed—and distance isn’t a guarantee it won’t… 

Maggie and Cliff search for happiness in the arms of others, but fate has other ideas. She can’t stop thinking about the rugged

rancher, and when her life takes an unexpected turn, sending her back to her hometown of Portland, she’s forced to make some

serious choices. 

Maggie and Cliff both have dreams—and dreams are a wonderful thing—but what if they’re hoping for the wrong things, and love is

waiting in the one place they’d never expect?

My great passions have always included reading and writing. When not engaged in one of those past times, I enjoy baking, walks and

time spent with friends and family. I grew up in a small town and moved to L.A. after college. Adventures in that strange urban

terrain inspired me to write my first novel, Dating Maggie. As a kid I have a vague recollection of creating “magazines” with a pencil

and ruled notebook paper. I made family members buy copies for a quarter. I’ve been writing a variety of things since then:

marketing copy, plays, short films and online content. Virginia Woolf would be proud that I’m now able to write-in a room of my

own-under the clouds of the Pacific Northwest. Sometimes my husband and son pop in to check on me.

“Evil Doesn’t Burn…”


✺ SYNOPSIS ✺

Burned, scarred, and left for dead, Jimmy Tasker is running from everyone.

The blaze changed him—changed the way his brain fires—and left someone else in his head with him. Someone who wants to kill for

fun.

He changes his name, buries his past, starts a new life…and disappears.

Years later, four friends from the city are hard up. Steve needs work, Gil’s jumpy, Peter is struggling, and Cal’s an addict. So they

plan a robbery. Steve backs out, but the other three go through with it and botch the job, resulting in the death of Lauren

Westerbrook.

Ronan Westerbrook has a hidden past, a love of photography…and a fondness for flame.

Ronan’s revenge for his wife’s death culminates in a bloodbath—and unleashes Jimmy, who was there all along, tormented by

nightmares of atrocities he has no idea if he truly committed.

Steve is trying to build a respectable life, but now Jimmy has one last piece of unfinished business…the only witness who can identify

him.

It’s a sign. No one is safe.

At just twenty-two years old, Wilhelmina Daniels inherits a house, a family of eclectic witches, and a death sentence on the same day.

Even a powerful spell can’t seal Julien’s fate…

Julien knows an incantation that just might help Wilhelmina to solve her mother’s death, but when an unidentified stalker is spotted spying in her house, her family is certain it’s Julien’s dangerous alter ego come out to play.

Wilhelmina must decide—is risking her life worth the possible heartbreak of discovering the truth about Julien’s fate and her mother’s death? Or will she cast aside her desire for Julien and vow her love to Reid.

Leaving her past forever buried in the murky depth of…Frog Hollow

#NaNoWriMo : You Never Know What Can Happen

As NaNoWriMo 2015 gears up for its final push, I remember last year’s project and all the things that have happened since. To say that NaNo 2014 was unprecedented is a definite understatement.

Like many writers around the world, I look forward to participating in NaNo every November. (Don’t know what NaNoWriMo is? Learn more here.) In the past I’ve banged out full-length epic fantasies and short stories featuring everything from zombies to homicidal horses in the 30 day time frame. I didn’t do anything like that for NaNo 2014.

I wrote a series.

Okay, so I didn’t finish the entire series by November 30. But I did finish book one, Changing Teams, in 19 days. In the remaining eleven I outlined the next three books and wrote a tie-in short story. Yeah, this series was happening in a big way.

I plunged ahead into book two, but when I was halfway in I decided it should be book three. Then I switched the protagonists for books two and four and added some backstory to book three, which meant that I needed to make some changes to book one. In essence, I was writing the entire series at once.

This was uncharted territory for me. I’ve written three series in the past—one epic fantasy, two urban fantasies—and I’ve always followed the same formula:

  1. Write book one (meaning the whole process including beta reading, editing, etc.)
  2. Check out the market, determine which agents and publishers are buying works similar to mine
  3. Write query letters, synopses, and submit away
  4. Commence nail biting
  5. If book one is picked up, consider series potential

This time around, instead of waiting for an agent or publisher to express interest in book one, I had the entire series in my back pocket. When I queried Limitless Publishing–who ultimately signed the series–they asked if there were sequels to Changing Teams. My response? “Yes, and they’re all ready to go.”

Is writing an entire series simultaneously hard? You bet it is. But it’s also a relatively simple trick from which I’m already reaping awards. And none of this would have come about without my participation in NaNoWriMo. My take-aways from this are as follows:

  1. NaNoWriMo forces you to think–and write–outside the box
  2. If an idea grabs you, go with it, at least for a little while
  3. Don’t be afraid to do things differently.

As for this year’s NaNo, i’m on track to finish the sequel to a previously unpublished urban fantasy. does this mean I’ll finish another series before I query it? Maybe.

What are your NaNoWriMo success stories? Share in the comments!

Tick tock…

Mary Cross has been forced to accept the world of the supernatural because of an experience that left her with the ability to hear—but not see—the supernatural. She survived three weeks of

being kidnapped and tortured, and it has left her emotionally and physically scarred.

Across the street from her house, strange things are happening…

run screaming from the house.

Caleb Malone has been dumped into a teeming hornet’s nest…

He’s always been the good son, done everything asked of him, and even gave up graduate school to join the family business of hunting supernatural villains. He’s convinced himself he’s happy,

that his duty to his gift should come before anything else.

Until he meets Mary Cross.

She gives him hope that things can be different, that he can be different.

Together, the two of them must solve the mystery of the two shadows stalking the child and save him from whatever has attached itself to him. Time is running out and to save Noah, forcing

Mary to face her own demons.

::: MEET THE AUTHOR: APRYL BAKER :::

So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching

them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and

causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals, I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama you were seen kissing a particular

boy on a particular day just a little too long. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled “Lord

Margrave’s Deception.” I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain

my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.

Now, I live Huntersville, NC where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of

reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

Haven’s Flame from @limitlessbooks: by @mariepiperbooks ✩✩ NOW AVAILABLE ✩✩ HAVEN’S FLAME, Fires of Cricket Bend Trilogy #1, by Marie Piper

 

HAVEN’S FLAME, Fires of Cricket Bend Trilogy #1, by Marie Piper is LIVE! 

 

 

✣ SYNOPSIS ✣

High-button dresses aren’t made for hot Texas springs—or the burning desire Haven Anderson has for Deputy Matthew

Frank…

After a lifetime of friendship, Matthew and Haven are finally engaged, but he doesn’t seem to share Haven’s emerging passion.

Feeling rejected and uncertain about her future, Haven finds herself attracted to the handsome new saloon owner, Hank

Porter.

Matthew holds Haven at arm’s length, despite the love smoldering inside him…

Matthew’s father was run out of town years ago for nearly killing his mother, and Matthew fears the lack of control passion can

cause. Having been taken in and raised by Haven’s family, he vows to always treat her with affection and respect.

 

The season brings cattle drives and rowdy cowboys—and Haven can’t stay away from the saloon…

As the doctor’s assistant, Haven tends Hank after a fight, and befriends a lively “upstairs girl,” Callie Lee, despite orders from the

Cricket Bend Sheriff—her father—to have nothing to do with anyone at the saloon.

Along with the cattle drive come the lawless McKenzie brothers, a rude bounty hunter, and rumors of a dangerous man, Walker,

headed their way. Caught up in this whirlwind, Haven remains torn between her love for the romantically distant Matthew and the

more earthy passion offered by Hank and his scandalous reputation.

Should she follow her heart or the desire that puts everything she’s known at risk? Or even more importantly, will the people

she loves still be standing in the aftermath of…

Haven’s Flame.

Bullets fly during a dangerous mission, and Major Mark Lopez is critically injured… 

A Blackstone soldier, Mark is transferred to the North Dakota hospital with the security clearance to treat members of the elite covert team. The pretty new

nurse assigned to his case knows her stuff, but Mark soon discovers she knows more than just how to save lives. Mia Harper knows the Blackstone

Code. 

Mia is a bit of gypsy and doesn’t engage much with people—but there’s something about her mysterious new patient… 

After Mark recovers from surgery, he is discharged from the hospital with orders to rest. Not that he does. Instead he rushes to México for the team’s next

assignment. But when he returns to the hospital again and again with minor—and not so minor—injuries, Mia suspects he’s only coming to see her.

Romance ignites, and because Mia signed a non-disclosure agreement at the hospital, Mark is able to open up more with Mia than any other

woman. 

Some debts demand payment in either cash or blood… 

When someone from Mark’s past comes to him for help, old secrets start to resurface, and more blood is shed. Worlds collide and lies are exposed in an all-

or-nothing underground poker game. 

Mark must put his life on the line to keep Mia safe…and to finally learn the answer to the question that’s haunted him his whole life.

After being rescued from a brutal band of marauders, Ellen Hale rebuilt her life in the fortified neighborhood that became her home. A heartbreaking decision and devastating loss pushed her to become a fierce fighter, because weakness only got you and those you loved killed. 
Now her community is facing a deadly threat, and Ellen has another choice to make. 
Ellen volunteers as a member of fallback team three, tasked with establishing a temporary refuge for their citizens in the event their community is overrun by the enemy. As the danger intensifies, she and her adopted sister, Melissa, set off with the rest of their team on the road trip from hell. 
Their mission is cloaked in secrecy, but suspicions of a traitor arise. 
Something is affecting the zombies’ migration patterns, and when blacksmith Tyler Garrett is discovered trapped in a farmhouse, the team refuses to trust him. But Ellen believes his story, and it’s not just because of his rugged, blond good looks and soft-spoken manner—his skills can greatly benefit their team. 
As the team struggles to reach the fallback, previously secure locations are overrun, and their chances of success seem remote. With the likelihood of a traitor nearly certain, and the lives of everyone she loves at risk, Ellen must figure out who to trust before the traitor—or the zombies—destroy them all. 
Is there a spy among the fallback team, 
or is there another threat lurking in the Kentucky hills?
