RELEASE DAY! PIECING THE DARKNESS by Angela Dennis…with #Giveaway

 

Piercing the Darkness
by Angela Dennis
Series: Shadow Born, #2.5
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: April 7, 2015

 

 

Love knows no bounds.

Cursed by the dark mage who killed her, Hilda Janssen has wandered the Earthly plane as a ghost for fifty years, finally finding her place as an IRT hunter, policing supernatural misfits trapped on Earth after a brutal war.

When a demon attacks, putting her team in mortal danger, Hilda sacrifices herself to save her friends. She’s already died once; what difference will doing it again make? But instead of meeting a final death, Hilda is cast into the Void, a magical prison from which there is no escape.

Her only hope is Cade Kerrigan, the lover she left behind after her first death. Their bond and his magic are the only things strong enough to pull her through the Veil. But Cade has no idea his soulmate came back as a ghost, and he isn’t too happy to have been left in the dark.

They must put aside the baggage of the past to save Hilda from a fate worse than death.

Warning: Contains star-crossed lovers destined for a second chance, a whirlwind of powerful magic, and a love so strong it defies even death.

 

 

Everything hurt, even her teeth. Hilda eased to her hands and knees, spitting dirt from her mouth. She had no idea how much time had passed, and she didn’t really care. All she wanted to know was where the hell she was.

She tried to stand, but pain brought her back to her knees on the damp ground. Rubbing at her burning eyes, she shook her head. Her vision was blurry at best, and all she could see for miles was dirt and darkness. The air was thick with humidity and stank of wood smoke, burning her lungs each time she inhaled.

Wait. She was breathing. Ghosts didn’t breathe. And they didn’t hurt.

Her legs gave out and she collapsed onto the ground. She ran her fingers through the soggy earth at her side, realizing she could feel it. Fighting back her growing alarm, she brushed her fingertips across her face. She could feel that too, and it felt solid. Holy shit, she still had a body. She had no idea how that was possible, but she was going with it. This time when she stood, she was prepared for the instant pain and weakness, so she managed to stay on her feet. She spun around, searching for something, anything, other

than the endless darkness.

She definitely was not still on the Earthly plane. This place felt different. The air was gritty, felt dirty against her skin. And something about it seemed…wrong.

As her eyes adjusted, she realized there were globe-like fixtures scattered beneath the ground. They shimmered with pale blue light that barely penetrated the dense atmosphere. But it was bright enough she could make out the outline of a hillside in the distance. Maybe if she climbed to the top she could get a better look around.

She wrapped her arms around her chest to try and get warm, realizing she was naked. How she had missed that was anyone’s guess, but it was irrelevant. It wasn’t as if she could pull a pair of pants and a sweater out of thin air. She’d figure it out later, once she got her bearings.

Bare feet dancing across the rough, pebbled landscape, she kept her eyes focused on the hill in front of her, confident her salvation lay on the other side. The farther she walked, the more confused she became. This plane didn’t fit the description of any plane she’d heard of, and the education Brenna had given her had been fairly extensive. There was a tingle of

doubt in the back of her mind, a part of her that was convinced she was finally completely dead and this was her afterlife. But she refused to believe that.

So she moved forward, step by painful step, against the wind’s resistance, through the thick layers of fog, until she was only a few yards from the hillside. Now that she was close, she realized the hill was made of a series of jagged stones, jutting out at various dangerous looking angles. It would take a miracle for her to reach the top, but she was known for beating the odds. She’d never know if she didn’t try.

Her hand was clutching the first notch in the rock when she heard it. A mix between a growl and a hiss echoed through the night. It was so loud, she unconsciously released the rock, pressing both palms over her ears to block it out. The ground shook with the force of whatever was coming and the wind stopped abruptly as if it too was running away.

~ MARY BUCKHAM,URBAN FANTASY AUTHOR~GIVEAWAY AND INTERVIEW…

MBA&M IS HONORED TO PRESENT…..

~INVISIBLE MAGIC BY MARY BUCKHAM~

Invisible Magic Cover

Good Morning, Mary! And welcome to My Book Addiction and More!
Now to the nitty gritty,please give our readers some insight into Mary Buckham?

MBA&M: What made you decide to write Urban Fantasy?

MB***I started writing in Romantic Suspense because I loved the pacing and the complexity of plot possibilities. It seemed natural to expand what I did in Romantic Suspense by adding bigger threats [aka preternatural beings], a larger world to have my characters play in and lots more action.  I also love the fun you can have when you create bad-ass characters meeting smart-ass characters!

MBA&M: What was your inspiration behind writing “Alex Noziak,Invisible Recruits” series,how did you know which story would be first,and how did  “Invisible Magic” and its characters evolve into a full blown series?

MB***This series grew out of a series I started for Harlequin Bombshell, which were kick-ass heroines with an element of a relationship. The first book in that series was Vaughn’s story – Debutante becomes Spy- and I received a lot of great feedback from readers loving the characters. Then, just as Alex Noziak’s story was to be published the line folded. With changes in the publishing industry there really weren’t a lot of venues for strong female protagonists who aren’t afraid of lots of action and danger until the Urban Fantasy genre started expanding. Alex was not going to keep quiet until I wrote her story and when I started INVISIBLE PRISON, her novella which explores how she became a covert agent in the Invisible Recruits Agency, it quickly became apparent that there was a lot to this part/witch, part/shaman woman who grew up with four shifter brothers in Mud Lake, Idaho. So I’m having a blast learning more about her with every story!

MBA&M: How hard is it to write a Urban Fantasy,that can or will hold readers attention?

MB*** I’m a reader as well as a writing craft instructor and bring both those abilities to the page to write the kind of story I enjoy. Lots of action. A plot that twists and tangles. Characters that are willing to do the right thing even when that’s hard. And fun secondary characters that keep the world interesting.  At this point the hardest part is keeping up with Alex and her teammates.

Invisible Magic CoverMBA&M: Which character in “Invisible Magic” do you most relate to and why?

MB*** I relate to all the Invisible Recruit teammates as each of them, in their own way, struggle with defining who they are in a world that doesn’t necessarily acknowledge their gifts. Most women I know struggle with issues of self-realization, juggling other’s needs over their own, identifying what passions drive them, and with feeling invisible at times. The teammates may have individual abilities–the use of magic, psychic powers, soul walking and turning invisible–but those gifts are no different than other gifts women have that may need a nudge to be accepted and appreciated.

MBA&M: What was your favorite scene to write and which was your most awkward?

MB*** Favorite scene? That’s a hard one. I love the give and take between the teammates and the sexual tension between Alex Noziak and the warlock Bran. That’s a clash of two different worlds colliding and that’s always exciting to explore. The most awkward? I think writing the end is always the hardest. It’s like stepping away from these amazing people, like separating from your best friend and not knowing if and when you’ll get to see them again.

MBA&M: Fantasy seems to a big box office ticket in the TV/Movie industry….Your “Invisible Recruits” series has been picked up,who do you see as the hero/heroine of this series,and some of the secondary characters, for the fall lineup?

MB***Oh, love this questions <grin>. On my website – www.InvisibleRecruits.com – I’ve actually created a page for each character with an image and a description of them from Alex’s POV.  I can see Tanya Beatty who is Native American and was in Twilight playing the role of Alex. I could see Lambert Wilson or Ben Affleck playing the warlock Bran. I see Gina Torres (Serenity and Matrix Revolutions)  playing Jaylene the psychic who grew up on the mean streets of Chicago and Michelle Rodriguez  (SWAT and the Fast and the Furious) to play Mandy.

http://www.invisiblerecruits.com/gallery.html

MBA&M: What was your favorite part of writing this series?

MB***Favorite part is exploring these very complex women who are all hiding secrets and scars from the past and watching them come into their own, not easily or without trial and error, but they never give up. And that’s exciting. Then it’s also fun to find who to pair them with for sparks to fly.

MBA&M: Who do you feel influenced your writing the most,and who do you feel your writing style resembles?

MB**I’d say my style most resembles Patricia Briggs, Charlaine Harris or Ilona Andrews. I use a lot of wry humor on the page, high-octane action and emotion. As for influences I read broadly-loved the conflict in the YA Hunger Games, the complexity of Meg Gardiner’s Thrillers, the word weaving of Dennis Lehane, the large picture scope of the Belador series by Sherillyn Kenyon and Dianna Love.

MBA&M: Who do you look to for encouragement and who is your hero,real or fiction?Why?

MB*** This is one in the same-my husband who believes in me when I have doubts, who is my first reader, is willing to read books that are not his normal choice of reading material so I can have a sounding board to talk out ideas, who is always willing to give me what if scenarios even if I don’t use them all, plus he cooks for me (I forget that eating thing when I get into my writing). He truly is my hero, my best friend and the one I get to celebrate with every time a new book is launched!

MBA&M: What is your favorite time of day and what motivates you the most to write?

MB*** I’m a night person (hubby calls me a vampire) because growing up and having five siblings, including a sister I shared a room with, it was only late at night, when everyone else was asleep that I could read and disappear into magic worlds. I’m driven to write by the stories in my head. They compel me to do them justice. My job is to show up at the page and not muck up the words.

MBA&M: Now, please tell our readers where to find you and where they may purchase “Invisible Magic”?Invisible Magic Cover

MB** I can be found on Facebook at Mary Buckham and Mary Buckham Fan Page; on Goodreads, on Twitter, and at one of my two websites: www.MaryBuckham.com and www.InvisibleRecruits.com.  INVISIBLE MAGIC is available in e-format via Amazon, Barnes&Noble and Kobe. It’s available in print via Amazon and B&N.

Mary, do you have anything you would like to add?

***I want to thank you for inviting me here today. It’s because of bloggers like you that writers and readers can connect and that’s an amazing contribution to the community of readers and writers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I also love hearing from readers. Readers are what keep writers writing. Without you I’d be reduced to writing grocery and to-do lists for my hubby. So he thanks you too!

~Thank you, Mary! We are excited to have you with us today and our readers~

Good luck in your writing career!

INVISIBLE MAGIC Now Available!

 

BOOK 1: ALEX NOZIAK

 

Available Now for Kindle and Print!

 

Hidden from a world unaware of magic, a recently and only partially trained group of operatives known as the Invisible Recruits are the only ones willing to stand between mankind and those powerful preternatural factions seeking to change the balance of power and gain world domination.

 

Alex Noziak, part witch/part shaman, anticipates facing dangerous preternaturals out for blood . . not fashion week. But when the rookie agent is sent undercover to find out who, or what, is behind a series of world-wide thefts of top-secret intelligence, Alex tangles with the Seekers.

 

Seekers hunt gifted human individuals like Alex and her squad whose rare powers can keep the balance between human and nonhuman squarely on the side of the humans. Her simple assignment turns into a battle of survival for everyone involved when she crosses Bran, a mysterious warlock, who might be her only ally or worst enemy.

 

To save the innocent, Alex must call upon her untested abilities, but at what cost?

GIVEAWAY AND VISIT WITH JOSEPH DEVON,AUTHOR OF “PROBABILITY ANGELS”..

NURTURE YOUR BOOKS AND MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE PRESENTS….

JOSEPH DEVON!! 

MEET JOSEPH DEVON!! 

Good morning and welcome to My Book Addiction and More today!!

MBA&M: Tell our readers a few tidbits about yourself?

JOSEPH: I was born in raised in New Jersey, went to college in Atlanta, and then have lived in New York ever since. I love cooking and photography. I’m an avid television watcher. I worked at the Ground Zero recovery site after 9/11 and then as a nanny for five years. I like scotch. Also? I just decided I really like the word tidbit.

 

MBA&M: What made you decide to write “Probability Angels”?

JOSEPH: A few years ago I decided that my writing was getting too predictable and felt forced. So I decided to do a writing project where I wrote a new short story every two weeks for a year. 26 Stories in 52 Weeks is the catchy name I made up. Anyway, the first part of Probability Angels was one of those short stories. As soon as I finished it I knew I could get a lot more out of the world I had created and I continued pushing it and out popped a book.

 

MBA&M: Where did the idea of “Probability Angels” come from?

JOSEPH: As I said, I was doing this crazy writing project where I needed a new short story every two weeks. Which was madness. I didn’t have time to be picky with what I was writing, I usually had to go with whatever my first idea was in order to have it finished by my deadline. My initial thoughts when I wrote the short story that grew into Probability Angels were of a man in a tuxedo at a wedding making a deal with the devil. But then I started wondering if it would be possible to make the devil into a good guy. It seemed like fun to try and turn that concept on its head. Well out of that came the notion that often our strengths and our moments of growth come out of the bad times in our lives. So what if this devil character was bringing on bad moments but for a good purpose? In a nut shell that’s what the Probability Angels do. And the man in the tuxedo turned into Matthew, the main character.

MBA&M: What where some of the challenges in writing “Probability Angels”?

JOSEPH: In these books I have characters that can travel instantly to anywhere in the world, so keeping my time zones straight was beyond tricky. I also tried to draw from a lot of different cultures, since they’re basically immortals I got to make up any character back story I wanted and still have them running around in the present day. That part was fun but it was a double edged sword because I wanted to get it right so I had to read up on Japanese culture and ancient Rome, for example, in order to make sure I was flavoring my characters correctly.

 

MBA&M: Who is your “real life” hero/heroes? Why?

JOSEPH: There are a lot of them. I like anyone who makes a stand for what they believe in or has the courage to create something and show it to the world. Trust me, that’s not easy. So I guess I try and find heroes in the everyday people around me…or does that sound cheesy?

 

MBA&M: What is on your “To Be Read” pile?

 JOSEPH: I’m currently reading even more about ancient Rome in order to prepare for the third book in this series. After that I have a history of clothes to read.

 

MBA&M:  If you could step into a book and that world where would it be? Why?

JOSEPH: God there are so many. I’d love to be in any world where I could have an adventure that isn’t possible in this one. The Narnia books or Tolkien or something along those lines. If I had to pick one, though? I guess I’d go with Harry Potter, because I’d get to have the adventure but then come back to New York City. I’d hate to be stuck in a world without this place in it.

 

MBA&M: What is one of your biggest regrets? Why?

JOSEPH: Tough question. I think most of my regrets involve women. If you have to ask why you might need to get out more. 🙂

 

MBA&M: Please tell our readers where to find you and where “Probability Angels” can be found?

JOSEPH: All my work can be found at josephdevon.com and Probability Angels is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats as well as in most every other e-reader’s store.

Joseph, would you like to add anything else today?

Probability Angels by Joseph Devon

Matthew knows that he died twenty years ago. He has, after all, been bouncing around New York city ever since, causing mischief and having fun as a supernatural being. But recently some problems have been cropping up: not only is he hallucinating things in garbage cans, but his mentor doesn’t think he’s working up to his full potential, his best friend can’t offer any solace but drunken confusion, and his wife is dying in Central Park. See, the past twenty years haven’t meant a thing because now it’s time for Matthew to make his second choice and become a tester of humanity. And that’s all before the zombies show up. Come explore the world of Matthew and Epp and see what a samurai from Feudal Japan has to do with the course of modern physics, what a two-thousand year old Roman slave has to do with the summit of Mount Everest, and what a dead man from Brooklyn has to do with the fate of the world.
