Mister Lister here … wrote Crossroads because he wanted to tell a story about family, love and oppression in a world where the supernatural is common place and has been for thousands of years. Simple as that. The rest, though, isn’t as simple! Read on to find out why
Do you prefer the people in your life to be simple or complex?
I think we’re all sort of simple when you get to the core. We experience the same emotions across the board; a fact which binds us together and allows us to share music...

If you were to be eaten by cannibal, how would you like to be prepared?
I enjoy a good cookout, so as long as I was killed quickly FIRST I would want to be slow roasted over a fire.
Wouldn’t it be fun to chuck it all an...

TIED spoke to Laney. She’s not sure why, exactly. The idea kept popping into her head. She didn’t sit down and plan it out—she just started writing one day. The more she wrote, the more the story refused to let go. To her, it was haunting in a way. And now that we know why she wrote TIED, let’s learn more about the author herself!
Ben & Jerry’s ____________ is the best ice cream ever!
I don’t eat Ben & Jerry’s, but I love Baskin Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip. It’s the real deal. The freezers are...
About the front:
This is totally different than J.A.’s other books, and I liked it! Her first two in the series were romance—very romancy in fact. Caged was rough and tumble which was totally Ethan. This one is just … well … this one is just sooooo romance again! And there are two mostly naked people on the cover, so I expect this one to be hot-hot-hot! Now the pan...

It’s 2132 and life as we know it today is the same. Or is it?
In 2132, “We the people …” means nothing, and it hasn’t for a hundred years.
Like all the citizens of the American Union, eighteen-year-old Erianna Keating is not to ask questions. She is not to believe anything except what the A.U. tells her. More importantly, she’s not supposed to know what she doesn’t know, nor that she’s a pawn.
Like everyone else, though, she is, and like everyone else, she is a hundred percent oblivious to wha...

About the front:
What a quirky cover! That girl has some gorgeous eyes and she looks so surprised and I have to wonder What?!? is making her go ‘ooh!’ like that? Is it something she’s hiding? Is it the dude in the lightbulb above her head? Is it something she sees? Like me staring at her? What is it? What ever could make a cover model go ‘ooh!’? Now, of course that lightbulb is making me truly wonder. First off, it’s upside down. Secondly, there’s a dude (Yes?) inside it. Better yet, he’s whit...

Caged by J.A. Belfield
If the meek can become deadly, the strongest can be weak.
For Ethan Holloway, his mission to find a missing werewolf should be simple. Crack a few heads, bust a few chops and the solution always reveals itself. Always.
Not this time.
Ethan’s reputation precedes him, and because it does, someone is ready. Waiting. Unbeknownst to Ethan, he’s about to go down. Hard. Against a foe he never suspected and in a world he never imagined could be real.
What awaits Ethan is a fight not...

Anne Elisabeth wrote this book because she had a picture in my head that she couldn’t successfully draw. So she started writing a short story, which eventually grew into several stories, which eventually grew into the Tales of Goldstone Wood . . . and this novel.
Do spelling and grammer mistakes annoy you?
I am a Less-and-Fewer girl . . . I want to hear it said RIGHT. And so rarely am I given that pleasure. Look, my friends, if you can COUNT it, it should be fewer: “Fewer Calories. Fewer pills...

If you saw it, would you read it?
About the front:
This is a kinda creepy cover. I mean it’s creepy but it’s not. It looks normal in most senses, but the hand there kinda makes me go … huh? Is it red for a reason? And what’s it touching? Are we looking through glass to see the dude on the ground? And who’s the dude on the ground? What’s he so sad about? This is definitely not my normal cover, but by the looks of it, I’m guessing that’s supposed to be the case. All I know is: I wouldn’t want to...

When I began laying the groundwork for A Cast of Stones, one of the variables I established early on was the timeframe. Even for a work of fantasy, research is a necessary evil since we need to establish for our reader a connection with history. If we fail to do this, they will be forced to flounder through our prose in an attempt to make a connection with our own history and failing to do so. Consider how awkward it would be to set the stage with knights and armor and longbows and then have...
