D.P. PRIOR

I was born in the South East of England in the late sixties, just in time to get a good sniff at the Summer of Love. I spent most of my childhood immersed in fantasy and SF novels as well as Marvel comics. 

Since 2011 I have been a full-time author and editor. I am married to Paula and have two children, Theo and Cordelia. My chief influences as a writer are: David Gemmell, R.E. Howard, Lin Carter, L. Sprague de Camp, Stephen Donaldson, Joe Abercrombie, and Mary Doria Russell.

I love Italian food, so long as it’s served with red wine. I’m a huge fan of EWTN. Other than that I love old school Doctor Who and the remake of BSG. I’ll listen to anything from Neil Young to Kiss, to Mozart’s Requiem or The Goons.

Readers who loved Divergent, Angelfall, and the love of Twilight will love THE EXEMEUS.

THE EXEMEUS was based upon the author’s thoughts about having a book that chronicled a person’s life from birth to death. Jennifer Lawrence would make a wonderful Hyalee. 

This is available on Kindle and Nook for $0.99 on April 25th.  

EXCERPT:

Singleton stopped the vehicle and hopped out. “Come on,” he said, leading the way through the brush. What else could I do? I jumped out of the car and followed. Smoke was billowing through the air, and it took me a few moments to realize I seemed strangely immune to any effects of the fire. Singleton had stopped inches from the flames. “You’re way to close!” I shouted–and I had to shout to be heard, because the fire was roaring. “You’re going to burn to death!” He turned and looked at me, and without looking away from me for a second he took a deep breath and stepped backward into the flames. For a moment I couldn’t move, couldn’t say anything. It came to me in a flash that he had decided he didn’t want to live if we couldn’t be together. Was he insane? “No!” I screamed as I rushed forward. I had no idea what I was going to do, but I had to do something. I loved him. I could survive without touching him, seeing him, hearing him, but I couldn’t live without knowing he was alive. I ran frantically toward the flames, trying to locate him in their glowing embers. Instinctively, I knew what I had to do. I thought cooling thoughts, water-filled thoughts as I yelled his name, my voice cracking to be heard over the deafening noise of the inferno. A strong hand reached out, grabbed my wrist, and pulled me into the fire.


FOLAMI MORRIS

Folami and Abeni Morris are a sister-sister writing team. Together they wrote (and rewrote) The Exemeus, somehow managing to accomplish it without murdering one another. Despite their facial similarities, tendency to finish each other’s thoughts and stick up for each other constantly, no, they’re not twins and thus deserve their own individual bio.

Folami grew up in the tiny city of San Mateo Ca, where nothing ever happens and no one ever leaves. She went to Xavier University for undergraduate, getting her B.A in physics and her B.S in Biology. After graduation she returned to California, to live in an even smaller city, where even less happens, Antioch Ca. During this time she escaped the monotony by hanging out with her imaginary friends Hyalee and Dephon, and by writing the Exemeus. She finally escaped to Queens NY and now realizes that quiet and tiny aren’t so bad.

As luck (and logic) would have it, Abeni grew up in the same tiny little town as her sister, then she too escaped to the tinier town of Antioch. She has yet to leave. She received her bachelor’s degree in early childhood development from Cal State East Bay. She is the mom of two amazing kids, who swear that they deserve a percentage of the book proceeds and a ton of the credit. At least she raised dreamers.

We write at the table in the dining room. We love the TV show One Tree Hill- hated to see it go. We love all kinds of music, except polka and yodeling. We love to travel, to lounge, and to waste time: we rarely get a chance to do any of those things (maybe when we become bestsellers.

You Will Be Roped Into This Funny Romance For Only $0.99 – April 25

What happens when an honest man has to choose between the hangman’s noose or living a lie?

MUCH ADO ABOUT MARSHALS is a witty and delightful romance that will have your heart singing!

Fans of Linda Lael Miller and Maggie Osborne will like MUCH ADO ABOUT MARSHALS. 

MUCH ADO ABOUT MARSHALS came about from the author’s research  about dime novels.

Tom Selleck and Reese Witherspoon would make a good Cole and Daisy – don’t you think? 

This is available on April 25th.

EXCERPT:

Stay calm and think. So Daisy’s sister was the woman who’d shot him. What lousy luck. He had to get the hell out of here, especially since Miss Daisy thought he was the town’s new marshal. He didn’t even know what town.


JACQUI ROGERS

There’s nothing quite like growing up in Owyhee County, Idaho, to fuel a young girl’s imagination. Jacquie Rogers lived on a dairy farm six miles southwest of Homedale. Stories popped into her head while she fed calves, or hoed beets, or shucked corn. And so it’s only reasonable that she should end up writing western historical romance full of dashing heroes and despicable bad guys set in the Wild West, which was and always will be Owyhee County, Idaho. It’s where the Old West really happened. Much Ado About Marshals (Hearts of Owyhee #1) won the RttA Award for Best Western Historical Romance in 2012. Other books in the series: Much Ado About Madams, and Much Ado About Mavericks. Coming soon, book 4: Much Ado About Miners.

EXCERPT: 

Most of my teeth were pointed, curved, sharp against my tongue. Furthermore, if I believed the sensations, there were two full rows of them on both the top and bottom of my mouth, which slid neatly between one another when closed.


NICHOLAS KING

Hey, I’m Nick. I’m a fan of anything speculative, whether science fiction, fantasy, supernatural or otherwise. Mostly I like to write for intelligent young audiences, and those who are still young in their own opinion (or want to feel young). My focus as a writer is on providing deeply immersive entertainment. I love the sense of being totally absorbed in and carried away by something. That’s the experience I hope to provide in my novels, and all my creative works. I also write musical theatre, and hope to move into screenplays at some stage. Splice Children is my debut science fiction novel. I truly hope you enjoy it.

Favourite Animes: Ghost in the Shell, Steins;Gate, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Naruto. Also Hayao Miyazaki films.

Favourite Foods: Pizza and ice cream. (Not together.)

Favourite Place to Write: Parks and gardens (so long as there’s internet access!)

Favourite Music: Dance/trance electronica (anything that either takes you away or alternatively gets your adrenaline pumping); dark slightly-emo rock (yes, I admit it); swing; and GOOD pop.

THE FORGOTTEN QUEEN was inspired by the author’s views on what Camelot represents – freedom – and how we hope for Camelot to rise again.

This will be available for $0.99 on April 24th.

EXCERPT:

When he looked up his heart raced. There was no denying it. In their few days together he felt more for Avalon than he ever had for Guinevere. Without thinking he stepped closer, intimately close and his nose touched the side of her cheek. “Avalon,” he whispered, his breath uneven, torn between duty and the feelings that had been unleashed when they kissed. “Choose me, Arthur,” she whispered impossibly soft. Looking up, her green eyes pled. As Arthur lingered, the pain grew even more acute causing his eyes to water. “I … can’t,” he finally said. “I have to protect Camelot.” He took a small step back. “Leodegrance expects me to marry Guinevere.”


ANNETTE MACKEY

Annette Mackey, B.A. Music, is an American author and musician. Her works include three novels, two plays, and hundreds of musical compositions. She lives in Idaho with her husband and children.

I tend to love simple foods. Hands down, my favorite things to eat are tomatoes with salt. MmMm! It makes my mouth water just thinking about it. I also love chopped tomatoes stirred in with cottage cheese. And a touch of chocolate once a day doesn’t hurt either.

This $2.99 Thriller Will Have You On The Edge Of Your Seat – April 23

Could the newest greatest thing kill you? CELLFIRE is an spellbinding new thriller that will have you finding out the answer to that very question.

CELLFIRE imagines a world where a rogue faction has decided to inflict harm by making smart phones ticking time bombs. There are four supposedly unrelated murders, but soon dots are being connected. Will they be discovered before more people die? 

Inspiration for CELLFIRE came from the repeated hysteria among the media, Wall Street and the public each time the smartest phone was rolled out. CELLFIRE’s protagonist would definitely be played by Seymour Hoffman. 

EXCERPT:

Ramlingen dragged Gilbert to a corner console and smashed his face on the metal corner three times. The Indian looked around the room, blood all over the place. He walked over and righted his chair and returned to his task. Hands shaking, a few more key strokes and he was finished. Cellfire was set.


HARRY MCCALL

35 years as a newspaper writer/editor makes for a lot of observation. I decided to take and idea for a story and see it through and now there’s CELLFIRE. Although fiction, there is much fact about contemporary life in CELLFIRE.

I enjoy many foods and all kinds of music. I don’t watch much TV, except for very old movies and C-SPAN.

Fans of Stephanie Bond or Barbara Freethy will enjoy THREE DAYS IN SEATTLE.

This will be available for $0.99 on April 22nd.


DEBRA BURROUGHS

When characters become so real to you that you just have to tell their story, that’s the best time to get them out of your head and write your book. I began a few years ago writing down these stories, and they have taken on a life of their own. There are now seven of them, with a few more coming by the end of the year. What other profession lets you just make things up?

My favorite food is babyback ribs, but cheesecake is a close second. I write in my home office, which I can have complete quiet to let my mind run free. I listen to contemporary Christian music and some Country Western and my favorite TV show has to be Castle.

Readers who enjoyed The Sisters Brothers, Lonesome Dove, and Hondo will like THE SHOPKEEPER. 

THE SHOPKEEPER was inspired by The Virginian. Mr. Best’s began to imagine if the Easterner was not just the narrator, but an active participant in the story. Who would play Steve Dancy? Possibly, Christian Bale or Ryan Gosling. 

This is available for $3.99 on April 22.

EXCERPT:

I passed the deck to my right, but Dooley declined to cut. When I continued to hesitate, Richard made another “Hurry up” gesture. I knew the command to deal must hide a larger story, but their faces told me this was all I was going to get, at least tonight. A man killed, but the town newspaperman and the sole doctor barely blink. This was the West, and Pickhandle Gulch was remote and isolated, but my new friends’ reaction seemed surprisingly subdued.

EXCERPT: 

Only fifteen minutes since I’d entered the halls of Perdido High School and already the beady eye of authority was upon me. I hadn’t even done anything wrong.

Yet.

“Travis!” Ms. Valenzuela called out to me from the door of the guidance office. Although she was getting old, maybe into her early forties, she hadn’t let herself go. She had great legs, which were hidden today by her lime green pants. 

“Yo.” I loped over and unleashed a grin that combined sincere remorse for my failings with my irresistible charm.

Find Inspiration In This Feel Good Chick-Lit Novel For Less Than $4 – April 21

Some people survive life’s blows whilst others become “mad, bad or sad”. Swimming Upstream is the story of a survivor, Lizzie, whose life takes a series of dramatic twists after she steps into the path of an oncoming car.

Readers who like Eat, Pray, Love will like SWIMMING UPSTREAM.

Ms. Mancini’s inspiration for Swimming Upstream came from a painful relationship breakup many years ago when issues from her own past came rearing up to haunt her. She then became interested in the question as to why some people survive life’s challenges whilst others go under in one way or another. British actress Kate Beckinsale would play Lizzie.

This is available for $3.99 on April 21st.

EXCERPT:

It was as if we were having two different conversations. Which wasn’t that surprising after all, as we were clearly having two entirely different experiences of breaking up. His was soft, cushioned; Jude and his friends had broken his fall. Mine was cold, empty and bereft. I was freefalling in space and time, with nobody standing by to stop me hurtling headlong into obscurity.


RUTH MANCINI

I was born in South London and educated in Cambridge and London. I now live with my husband and two children in Oxfordshire. I’m a legal-aid lawyer and writer. My eldest child has a severe learning disability and so juggling working as a lawyer, writing and caring for my sons is a challenge to say the least! I think it’s true to say that I have had my fair share of loss, trauma and difficulties over the years and it has got me interested in the subject of resilience and what it is that enables some people to survive life’s challenges whilst others become “mad, bad or sad”. That’s the underlying theme of my novel.

MY FAVORITE FOOD: I love wine, cheese and reading in bed! I also love good movies.

MY FAVORITE BOOK: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

MY FAVORITE MOVIE: Thelma and Louise. I love American movies generally and am fascinated with the American landscape and countryside as well as the people. But I also love the two women’s fight against injustice and male chauvinism. Right on sisters!.

Rachel Humphrey Daigle was inspired by her gypsyesque past and love for fantasy to write the FATED SAGA.

This series is also available on Apple and Nook.

EXCERPT:

Kanda paused, again, this time, casting her gaze directly into the eyes of the twins, sitting side by side. “Truth is the only real power,” she spoke profoundly. “Truth is freedom. Not pursuing it is a life of captivity!”


RACHEL HUMPHREY D’AIGLE

Rachel Humphrey – D’aigle was born in Malden Massachusetts, in July of 1973. A few months later the Great Chelsea Fire burned the family home and business. After spending the next 8 years traveling around New England as migrant workers (in attempts to rebuild their lives), her family finally settled down in Freedom, Maine. At the University of Maine, she met and married her husband, Gypsy Jazz musician and Luthier, Rich D’aigle. They currently reside in the state of Utah, in the heart of the Salt Lake Valley alongside two furry beasties.

My favorite foods are all in the books! Whoopie Pies, Creme Horns, Ployes, Blackberry Dumplings- bit of a sugar addict! I love anything book/movie/tv show related that is sci-fi/ fantasy or paranormal oriented.
