Sophia Martin | 66 comments 1. Book Title


2. Dates Free

MYADAR'S SNARE is permafree (I like the sound of that!)

and THE RIVER AND THE ROSES is free probably for the rest of the month... I'm going to release another book in the series, and TRATR will remain free for at least a week after that, and since I'm not sure when that will exactly be... ::shrug::

3. Genre Classification

MYADAR'S SNARE is dieselpunk, lgbt fantasy, and it is the first installment in a serial novel. The second installment is already out, and the rest is written, but needs editing. I hope to have the rest (3-6) out before summer, but that depends on my beta reader.

TRATR is a mystery with a psychic amateur detective. no lgbt in it, although there's a little in the sequel (already out). Think Medium + Ghost Whisperer + other qualities unique to it.

4. Short Blurb

Myadar's Snare blurb:
Summoned to the capitol of Ódalnord to attend the coronation of the new monarch, Myadar must navigate the perils of the decadent court as she becomes increasingly concerned with evidence of a rising tyranny.

TRATR blurb:
Since childhood, Veronica Barry has denied her psychic ability. When she dreams of blood and roses in Sacramento’s McKinley Park, the images are so vivid that she rushes to the rose garden, only to find that she is too late to save the victim. Although Veronica wishes to put the experience behind her, her best friend turns to her for help in finding her daughter, Angie, who has gone missing. Veronica must learn to embrace her gift, or Angie will be the next to die.

Ghost in the Machine (Corwint Central Agent Files, #1) by C.E. Kilgore

"Love is like a wormhole. You stumble on to it blindly, it sucks you in and takes you somewhere completely unexpected. You can’t fight it, because that would tear your ship apart. You can’t control it, either. All you can do is set your thrusters on glide and let it take you where it's going to take you."

Going against the rules of her Vesparian Sisterhood, Orynn is thrown into the open by a request for help that she could not refuse. Seeking to reconcile past mistakes and gain a forgiveness, the control over her empathic abilities is put to the test when the darkness that lives within her spirit threatens to once again destroy any piece of happiness that she allows herself to find.

As a Mechatronic Automaton, Ethan defines his world through a set of logically defined values and understandings. Encountering Orynn throws his system out of balance as he tries to decide if he should trust the feelings he is developing, or if he should follow the logic telling him that she is trying to control him for some unknown purpose.

In his attempts to capture the Vesparian prey he has been hunting after for two decades, the First Commander of the Xen’dari fleet will stop at nothing and track Orynn to the ends of the universe. On a path of vengeance for a past he can’t let go of, he will do everything in his power to burn her world down around her feet until nothing is left but ash and the bitter taste of regret.

Paranormal Romance Thriller

The Nightlife Series is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.

Vampires, strippers, escorts, night clubs, pimps and dirty cops – the Nightlife New York is never boring.

Aaron Pilan’s life is forever changed when he’s shot trying to rescue a drop-dead gorgeous woman on the streets of New York. Aaron is thrust into the shocking world of vampiric slavery when Michelle shares her blood to save his life.

Michelle's existence as a solitary vampire is also altered when she accepts this naive young man into her life. Bound by her blood, Aaron is subject to her authority. He walks a tightrope of strictly controlled feeding regiments and intense sexual adventures while catering to the neurotic control-freak tendencies of his new master. She vows to eliminate him if he proves too difficult to control.

This story is bold and evocative, infusing blood, sex, love and turmoil in an urban drama about two vampires battling evil outside and within themselves.

Still, Seagate intends to track down the killer. The victim, Arlen Hagerty, created plenty of enemies as he clawed his way to the top of his Soul Savers organization. The organization's founder, whom Hagerty shoved out of the way, Hagerty's wife, his mistress, his debate partner, and the politician he was blackmailing--all had reason to wish him dead.

Unbound Instinct (FREE Read) (Corwint Central Agent Files Side Story) by C.E. Kilgore

Vex was born into servitude, just one of the thousands of Trexen who had been collared and trained into submission by the Xen'dari Empire. An unexpected turn of events offers him the chance for freedom, but freedom comes with its own challenges. Trexen were taught to fear it and fear themselves. Without the Xen'dari collar around his neck or a Master to tell him what to do and how to do it, Vex is faced with having to make his own choices while fighting against the instinctual carnal nature of his Trexen heritage.

Cris is the last of her kind, enslaved by a man who uses her charms to subdue the crowds of his tavern and heal the wounds of his gang who attack the territories surrounding their outpost. When Vex steps into her world and kidnaps her into freedom, she must decide if she will accept it or if she will run from it and him.

Together, they will search for a grasp of freedom, an acceptance of themselves and an understanding of each other.

Andy Otto | 1 comments Caught on Film: An American Nightmare (Horror)

In honor of Halloween, Andy Otto’s “Caught on Film: An American Nightmare” will be available as a free Kindle download October 19-20 on Amazon.

Otto’s twisted haunted house book tells the story of promising young filmmaker Jack Festerone. Still reeling from the loss of his fiancée, Festerone convinces his childhood friend Shawn Dalton to invest in an old mansion with a gruesome past, hoping to distract himself with a new project: Jack aspires to compose the best haunted house script of all time. Ever-ready to ride his talented friend's coattails, trust fund baby Dalton also sees an opportunity for some great partying and an 'epic' reality show.

But after they make the cross-country trip to the Ross Estate, and see its strange effects on all who reside there, the ambitious duo begin to question everything, including each other. Will they realize their Hollywood dream - or will they find themselves blinded by the glare of the camera's lens?

“Caught On Film” is written in the tradition of the American haunted house novel, like Shirley Jackson’s “Haunting of Hill House,” Richard Matheson's “Hell House,” and of course Steven King's “The Shining.”

As a debut author, Otto does not claim to rival these giants; he humbly offers a modern take on the genre.

It is available on Amazon at Paperback will be available at the end of October.

Evanna Amaranthine, a ruthless, 600 year old vampire, has a new assignment: to leave the walls of Benajah, her beloved vampire guild, enter the realm of humans to stalk down her prey, Rian Delmar, and kill him. At first, the prospect of being around humans any longer than the time it takes to drain them repulses Evanna, but after moving in with her new human-loving vampire housemate, she soon becomes hopelessly entangled with Messiah Scarborough, his strikingly good-looking artist friend. When dreams of a past life begin to plague her as she continues her crusade, can she control emotions that threaten to overwhelm her? Filled with fast-paced action and steeped in suspense, Benajah’s Keeper by Aeryn Dougan is an urban fantasy that will capture readers’ hearts as it addresses the significance of family, fate, and loyalty. Dramatic, gritty, and deeply passionate, this unique take on the vampire legend will definitely leave you wanting more.

MI6 operative, Victoria Méliès, finds herself at the Pearly Gates, being assigned to an eternity in Purgatory. Her life-long identity is deemed inconsequential when she learns that forevermore, she will only be known by her code name: Evangeline. However, the always-intrepid spy argues with St. Peter that she must be given the chance to avenge her murder, so she can rest in peace.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah." St. Peter has heard it all before, but his decision to ignore her request is overruled, and Evangeline ends up back on earth as a ghost. There, she stumbles across her old nemesis, Bunny Stanton, who is very much alive and involved in plot to assassinate the President.

Evangeline embarks on a crusade to save the President's life. However, she ruffles the feathers of the powers that be and soon finds herself in trouble for breaking the "Rules and Regulations Pertaining to the Newly-Dead." Now, instead of earning a place in Heaven, she may find herself on the road to Hell—paved with her good intentions.

Reed Bosgoed (ReedBosgoed) | 10 comments The Purging: by Reed Bosgoed
Horror/Dark Fantasy

Earth is dying, pollution and over population the cause. Creatures long thought to be no more than legends have once again revealed themselves. Their goal; to destroy the root of the problem, humans. Mankind's time as the dominant species is about to come to an end. Lines have been drawn between those among the preternatural species who wish the extinction of humans and those who would seek to protect them. The Purging War has begun.

The story of a week long conflict that would forever change the known world. Each successive day chronicles the struggles of one of many protagonists. Ben, an unrepentant criminal coming face to face with something more dangerous than him for the first time. Jean, a werewolf with a fractured psyche on a single minded quest for payback against the beast who ruined him. Mo, a soldier returning home to a city on fire. Natsuko, a vampire assassin forced to cooperate with her greatest rival, to fight back against a common enemy. In the end, they will all need each other to to do what needs to be done.

This book is a return to a more primal, monstrous construction of supernatural creatures. Monsters you would flee in fear, not take to the prom. These vamps don't sparkle, the weres aren't neutered. This is not a love story. This is the apocalypse. You've been warned.

Allison Anderson knows she's a little different, but it hadn't bothered her too much-until now. Moving away from everything she's ever known to a new house, new neighborhood, and new school is bad enough, but it's her first year of high school too, making it even more intimidating. She's more aware of her social and physical limitations than ever before. And then there are the new people she meets: the tough-looking girl in her home room; the cute but dangerous-looking boy she first saw before school even started; the quiet, older girl who keeps to herself; the sullen-looking, seemingly isolated junior that doesn't seem to trust or like her at all. Can she trust them? While the peaceful situation of her new home only amplifies her doubts, she begins to learn that things are not always what they seem, and her world is turned upside-down by these new friends, two-legged and otherwise. Life soon becomes more complicated, and much more interesting!

Title: Epiphany
Dates: FREE 10/27 - 10/31
Genres: New adult, romantic suspense, contemporary


For 23-year-old Mackenzie Hill, tossing her life down the garbage disposal is easy after a painful incident shatters her life. Her heart is bleeding, and moving to Watcher's Point is a chance to start anew, only she isn't prepared for the guy who walks out of her dreams and into the flesh. Literally . . . because she's been dreaming about this sexy stranger for years.

Mackenzie is even less prepared to face the dark nature of her dreams. They've turned disturbingly gruesome, full of blood and murder, and when they begin to coincide with the media's headlines, she and Aidan realize her visions might be the key to stopping a madman from killing again.

Only Aidan has painful secrets of his own, and perhaps the biggest danger of all is falling for him.

Jodie Pierce (TheVampireQueen1) | 1 comments Just in time for Halloween…FREE BOOK! Blood Stained Lives

In an epic battle between good and evil, young Namon will discover what being the last of his kind truly means- born of a destiny with the power to protect all humanity. He must come to terms with his fate, and seek out the one responsible for his parents deaths and the near extinction of the White Wolves. The night vampire Aluana meets Namon, she was just out looking for a good time. Needing to escape the fear of her unknown past and origins, she wasn't expecting a harmless dance to have unintended consequences. She finds herself falling in love for what she suspects is the first time. Namon may be the key she needs to unlock hidden memories, but at what cost? Now the two are caught between mortal enemies and earth's destiny lies in their hands...

Hell Scrolls by J. Charles Sterin


Following the brutal murder of his Chinese lover, successful filmmaker Carl Benjamin is drawn into the dark world of espionage and Chinese organized crime Triads - and down the rabbit hole of history as he struggles to understand the secret past of his father who served in China and was recruited in 1949 by the Israeli Mossad. Carl and close friend and former special forces officer Clarence Washington are soon joined by the beautiful daughter of his father’s old Mossad controller. They’re chased across Europe and Southeast Asia by the sexually perverted daughter of the most powerful Triad leader, by the CIA, and by the unfinished legacies of their fathers, and use the coded messages within a set of Chinese Hell Scrolls to gain a tenuous upper hand. Filled with intrigue, action, and explicit sexual encounters - rooted in 35 years of wars and criminal power-plays - Hell Scrolls delivers everything fans of history-rooted thrillers want.
