A few months ago, six YA/NA authors pooled their brains together in a pensieve-like bowl and developed an anthology idea. We six feverishly penned our modern retellings of myth and folklore and now it’s available for your reading pleasure!

I’m SO excited to be a part of this. The authors I worked with are SERIOUSLY talented. I admit, I spent a fair amount of time fangirling over these lovely ladies and the words they so beautifully wove onto the page.

My story, SUNSET MOON, features Eloise, a Native American teen struggling to find herself in the mess of a life she’s living. I hope you enjoy her journey.

LORE: TALES OF MYTH AND LEGEND RETOLD

A collection of six folklore retellings that will twist your mind and claim your heart.

SHIMMER by Brinda Berry: A heartbroken boy rescues a mermaid… but is it too late to save her?

BETWEEN, by Karen Y. Bynum, is about a girl, a genie, and a ton of bad decisions.

SUNSET MOON by ME: Eloise doesn’t believe in Native American magic–until the dreamcatcher spiders spin her down an unknown path.

THE MAKER by Jayne A. Knolls: An incapacitated young man bent on revenge builds a creature to do it for him.

A BEAUTIFUL MOURNING by Theresa DaLayne: The story of a Maya goddess torn between duty and love, and the ultimate sacrifice she must make to achieve true happiness.

THE BARRICADES by Cate Dean: When a human girl risks everything to save the life of an Eternal prince, will their feelings for each other change the world they know, or tear it apart?

Hey gang! Are you all recovered from Meeting 2014? I’m in the midst of a 40 hour snow storm and a foot of snow. EEP! Anywho, I’m super stoked to share pub sista, Sara Hubbard’s NEW RELEASE.

ByForce_BySaraHubbard-200x300

Title: By Force (Forever Fae I)

Genre: NA Fantasy

ISBN: 978-1-940223-78-0

Excerpt:

We stared at each other for what seemed like an eternity, though it was probably mere seconds. His ice-cold stare made me forget to breathe. I swallowed hard as his face inched closer to mine, and his stale breath on my skin made the hairs on my head prick up. Strands of his hair fell from his braids and lightly tickled my neck and face. I closed my eyes, preparing myself for what he would do next.

Blurb:

Kidnapping Isame would set them free…

Isame wanted freedom: the freedom to travel, the freedom to explore, but most of all, the freedom to choose the life she wanted over the life—and the husband—her parents had chosen for her. But when Isame leaves home to accept another man’s proposal, she happens across five fierce, handsome warriors. She wonders why they’ve travelled so far from home, but she never imagines their purpose might have something to do with her. Not even after they kidnap her.

Remmie is a man of honor and fierce loyalty. So when his king commands him to find a specific young woman on the island of Copaxa, he’s prepared to obey. But he’s not prepared for the woman to change everything. Isame is special. He can see it from the start. But how can one puny woman make him question everything he’s always known, including the rightness of doing what he’s promised?

Book Description:

Lysandra Brooks remembers everything about the day she almost drowned alongside her grandma, especially the set of mysterious eyes she saw at the bottom of the lake. Ever since then, she’s been seeing strange things when she is near water—things that aren’t really there. Because of it, Lysandra has the tendency to avoid anything that isn’t on dry land. On her last day of high school, however, the biggest party of the year is set to take place at a fellow senior’s lakeside mansion. Despite her fears, Lysandra decides to prove to her friends and herself that she can handle it.
But after a horrific night of drinking and drama that leaves Lysandra feeling lonely and confused, she nearly drowns for a second time, only to be saved by the new guy in town. From that moment on, Lysandra’s world is turned upside down with the discovery of mind blowing secrets, including a revelation that something sinister is after her soul.

The third installment of the Wasteland series, TAINTED, has a cover and I’m helping New Adult author Lynn Rush share it with the interwebz. I LOVE this series and can’t wait to read this book. Congrats, Lynn!!! 

Tainted Final 1600x2400

Gorgeous cover, no? ;)

THE TAINTED BACK COVER BLURB (from Goodreads):

Even death can’t stop true love…

After over four hundred years as a Guardian, Durk Langdon rebuked it all. Walked away from everything when his mate, Jessica, was brutally murdered. Yet he has no recollection of anything since that gruesome day.

Nothing alleviates his longing for Jessica or his disdain for the Guardians until a former brother-in-arms joins him and his cause. Visions of his lost love start appearing in the most unlikely places, until Durk learns she survived.

But when he sets out to find her, demonic obstacles he never could have imagined tear them apart.

If only he had trusted her…

The Devil’s Triangle
by Toni De Palma
When 17 year old Cooper dies in an attempt to burn down his school, he finds himself in the afterlife. Lucy, the Devil’s sister who has crossed party lines, decides to give Cooper another shot at heaven. The deal? Cooper returns to Earth and has to find a girl named Grace. The rest is up to him.
While Cooper figures out his mission, he’s thrown into the life he’s always wanted. Great parents, a spot on the Varsity football team and a real future are all within reach. But what he really wants is Grace, a feisty girl with an abusive boyfriend that can pound Cooper into pulp if he doesn’t watch out.
While Lucy plays demonic-puppeteer, clues to an unknown past between Cooper and Grace start to unravel. Cooper discovers that what’s keeping he and Grace apart is far more sinister than anything this bad boy could have ever imagined.
