Fairies are trouble…sinful trouble? Sweet sister Delilah gets diamonds, wicked sister Isadora gets toads. DIAMONDS AND TOADS is a thoroughly naughty twisted fairytale romance that will have you laughing and sighing with joy.
Fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Julie Garwood will like DIAMONDS AND TOADS.
Ms. Saxon was inspired by The Charles Perrault fairytale by the same name, but she wanted to tell the “wicked” sister’s story, too, all with a modern twist to find true love! She imagines Jennifer Tilly or Debi Mazar for Delilah and Isla Fisher for Isadora.
A loud crack! split the air and Delilah whirled around. A sudden scent of patchouli filled her nostrils. All around her, a rosy watercolor haze washed over the landscape. A giddy bubble of fear tripped up Delilah’s spine as a spray of glitter dust drifted in the space where the woman had been. And in her place, a yellow parrot perched on the handle of the cart, staring at her from one beady black eye. Delilah hawked a reflexive cough and something small, hard, and cold fell from her mouth into her palm. “Sweet Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.” A diamond.
I am an indie-published author of both contemporary and historical sensual romance. I have been an avid reader of both genres since I was a tween. Interestingly, I never really contemplated writing one until a particular day (in November of 2006), out of pure frustration, and after having read Julie Garwood’s THE BRIDE for about the millionth time and wanting DESPERATELY to know the whole story of Mary (the sister of heroine) and Daniel (the friend of hero), that I finally thought: “I’m just going to write the story for myself, so that every time I read this book again, I’ll always know what happened to the sister.” Well, needless to say, it only took me about 5-10 minutes into the writing of it to realize I had NO idea how to write like Julie Garwood, nor WHAT Julie Garwood would do with her characters (another source of frustration, I might add—I still wish she’d write that sequel!) However, the germ of the idea was set and I ended up writing a completely different story purely springing from my frustration in not knowing the other characters’ story! As far as how long I’ve been writing, well, I’ve been keeping a journal since I was a pre-teen and in my teenage years I wrote a lot of poetry. Funnily, I always had the itch to write fiction, but when I tried sitting down to just write a short story or something, I could never keep my own interest—not until I tried my hand at romance. Then, for me, it was like reading a romance as I wrote it. I loved it, loved the process, and still do.

Fans of Tami Hoag, Nora Roberts, and Lisa Gardner will like MIND GAMES.
Polly Iyer was inspired to write MIND GAMES from her thoughts about what it would be like to be able to read people’s minds. She pictures Mila Kunis as Diana Racine.
MIND GAMES is available for $0.99 on April 17.
Diana Racine, Fraud of the Century That was the headline in the morning’s Times-Picayune. She’d heard the accusation since she was a child. Charlatan in Miami, carny huckster in Detroit, and a dangerous witch in Boston. Others had called her a hustler, schemer, faker, pretender, gypsy, quack, phony, and scamster. That last was from Vegas. Totally biased reporting there. They were all right. She was a fraud. And a damn good one too. A thirty-three-year old, five-foot-two bundle of fraud. To a point. Well here I am, people of New Orleans. Judge for yourselves.
How many times have readers read a book and thought they could write a better book? That’s what Polly thought after reading a clunker, so she set out to write a book. Was the first book good? Not really. She knew nothing about writing, but she didn’t give up. She took classes, learned what she needed to learn—though not everything—and wrote a second book that was definitely better. Something happened along the way. Polly grew to love the challenge of writing a novel. She studied more, connected with other writers from whom she learned, and became better at her craft. Now, many books later, Polly can’t stop writing. Writing is the most fun she ever had, and she has no intention of stopping.
Favorite Food: Pasta and potatoes, any kind, any day of the week.
Favorite Place to Write: I write in my office and on my bed.

What would you do if someone offered you a solution to all of your problems – but you’d turn the world upside down if you did? And what kind of disease is more blessing than curse? It’s called the Eden Plague.
Take yourself on a roller coaster ride in this Crichtonesque thriller – THE EDEN PLAGUE.
David VanDyke was inspired to write EDEN PLAGUE as a new and different twist on all the plague/apocalyptic fiction out there. He wondered what bad things would happen if something amazingly good showed up, and how society would react. David imagines that Jeremy Renner would be Daniel Markis.
He kicked the man under the table, hard, somewhere near his left knee. Jenkins convulsed forward, dropping the cigarette and clutching for the pain, and Daniel reached over, put his left hand on the man’s head and mashed his face into the table. With his right he used the magazine extension of the automatic to grind out the burning cigarette. “Now you owe me for a new tablecloth.”
I’m a retired military officer, and always wanted to write. I’ve told stories all my life, in one form or another, and the idea of a second career where my work, my time and my success are my own is attractive to me. Getting feedback from fans (yes, even the bad stuff) is amazing. I ascribe to JA Konrath’s dictum: “Be Entertaining!” That’s the number 1 rule of writing a good book.
Favorite Place to Write: I write away from others in my household – even my dogs can throw me off track, though I do like my window.
Favorite music : That’s very eclectic, from Metallica to George Winston, from the B-52s to John Denver. It all depends on the mood I want to be in.
Favorite Foods : I do like to eat. Probably Indian foot is my all-time fav.
Favorite TV Show: I guess I could say Firefly. I love stories with twists. Joss Whedon rocks.
SAND DOLLAR is a heart warming romantic fantasy that is sure to have you laughing, crying and falling in love with Noah. Noah Hartman on his deathbed describes his life of love and loss, only to discover a far greater truth.
SAND DOLLAR was inspired by the author’s life after finding a sand dollar while snorkeling in the Caribbean and how it applied to his life. Who would play Noah? Channing Tatum, of course!
BOOM ! The precious sand dollar in Noah’s hand exploded. In what seemed like slow motion, the sand dollar disintegrated through his fingers into a thousand tiny grains of sand that evanesced into obscurity. “Because for me, the sand dollar represents life, and how fragile life really is. What was once so very precious to me, suddenly and without warning, disintegrated and vanished before my eyes. Just like the sand dollar, life holds no promises. Seemingly solid and secure in our grasp, the blessings we have in our lives today are easily shattered tomorrow. The lesson learned: never take your loved ones for granted. And if you’re ever lucky enough to find that one person in life who makes you love more than any other person could possibly make you love, you treat every day together as if it were your last. You cherish every moment.” “However, for me, this lesson came too late, for she was already gone, seemingly lost forever. And there was nothing I could do to put the pieces back together. I would spend my life wishing I could somehow travel back, back in time, to the day I first laid eyes on that precious beauty.” The precious beauty of Robin’s young face was shadowed by sadness as she nervously searched Noah’s worried eyes for reassurance.
