JOHN KERRY

Distracted, vacant, geeky I spend my life inside fantasies of my own design that only exist in my head. Sometimes I manage to commit them to paper or e-paper (depending on your preference), and so far I have achieved that once. I’m working on the sequel.

Favorite Food: Currently I like anchovies on cream cheese and toast

Favorite TV Show: Peep Show (an excellent UK TV series.)

Favorite Place to Write: I imagine my favorite place to write would be in a glass walled apartment overlooking central park in New York. I’ll let you know if that ever becomes a reality. Currently I write at the kitchen table when no one is eating off it.

ELIZABETH PARADISE

I’ve been wanting to write like this since I was 14, and a freshman in highschool. I’ve done a lot off and on over the years. In August of 2012, I decided to do Nanowrimo (national novel writing month, 50k in 30 days), so I started planning The Lost Dreamer. I worked on it until December. Then I started researching publishing options, and found out a lot of people, if done right, are being successful Indie publishing. So I practiced with two children’s books on the whole cover creation, and formatting thing. I wouldn’t say they turned out perfectly, but they served my purpose, so whatever. Then I got serious about my young adult novel, and did the best I could to edit it. I asked an indie author who has been extremely successful over the last year and a half who she uses to edit her work. I hired him. I paid a designer to create a cover, and put it up for sale.

Favorite Food: I am addicted to ice cream.

Favorite Music: I listen to all different types of music.

Favorite TV Show: I have an obsession for the reality singing competition shows.

Readers who love Amanda Hocking’s Trylle Trilogy will like TWO HALVES. This book and the series it is part of was inspired by Twilight. Katherine Heigl would make a memorable Sarah. 

This is also available for Nook on May 8th.

EXCERPT:

My breathing quickened as I took in scents of the fresh green moss on the north side of the trees; the cool mist that blew from a nearby lake, carrying the scent of water lilies and algae; and in front of me, the over-sweet aroma of almost burnt toasted golden-brown marshmallows. I inhaled deeper, recognizing the sulphur of the Yellowstone geysers spitting steam and hot water. My heartbeat sped up even more. The pulse of nature—of life—pierced my skin, penetrating deep into my organs, giving me strength and vigour I hadn’t thought possible. I absorbed the energy around me to enhance my senses. The forest inhabitants knew what I was and kept their distance. My mouth watered when I thought about the sleeping elk three miles away. Would its blood thicken when it entered my mouth? My tongue slid across the inside of my upper lip when my gaze focused on someone’s jugular. I swallowed in a dry throat as my eyes rose to the face of someone I’d dared to think of as a victim. The vampire instincts awoke.

Join In The Fight In This YA Science Fiction For Less Than $1 – April 25

In THE EXEMEUS, find yourself in an epic battle for what is yours no matter what the odds. When the Treptonian Government takes over Earth, Hyalee and Dephon need each other to reclaim the planet. Unfortunately, time and space separate them and the Treptonian government will do anything to keep them apart, even if it means elimininating them… permanently.

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.

YA Readers Get Hooked This Intriguing Science Fiction Novel For Less Than $1 – April 24

SPLICE CHILDREN is a futuristic thriller for young adults and science fiction lovers of all ages. It tells the tale of two human chimera, a result of genetic alterations, Zen and Diana. They are involuntarily drawn into a journey of both astounding and terrifying discovery in the future-world arcology of Arca Nova. 

SPLICE CHILDREN was based upon the author’s dream about being a water breathing humanoid living in a laboratory.

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

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.

Be Captivated By This Action Packed YA Thriller for only 99c – April 20

ORIGINS centers around Colye, who faces being diagnosed with leukemia. He is placed into an experimental trial after traditional therapies fail. Coyle seems to not only have gotten better, but acquired some amazing abilities. Abilities with which he will have to use to reverse a threat to the entire world. 

ORIGINS is a young adult medical thriller with high action that is sure to make the pages fly! 

Mr. Tandberg was inspired to write ORIGINS from his days as a medical student.  This novel served as a release from the emotions he felt from watching patients and their families through various moments of joy and sadness. If there was a movie made from his book, Logan Lerman or Matt Shively would play Coyle. 

This book will be available for $0.99 on April 20.


STEVEN TANDBERG

Tucked deep within my brain and heart grew a desire to write. The path to become a physician kept that desire at bay while I studied and spent many sleepless nights at the hospital. Eventually, it could not be contained any more and out came Origins (The Infusion Series) and Daydreaming Davey, my first novel and children’s book. Now, my time is divided between my family, work, and late night writing sessions. Writing lets me explore my experiences in medicine and share them with everyone who will listen. I live with my supporting wife and kids in the Land of Enchantment.

Favorite food: Pad Thai vs. Buffalo Wings

Favorite place to write: The bedroom (I know, a little odd)

Favorite music: Currently I can’t get enough of Imagine Dragons

Favorite TV Show: Addicted to The Walking Dead

Fall In Love In Another World for less than $3 – April 15

A reluctant witch. A vampire kidnapper. And a demonic stalker. A wild ride you won’t forget.

SOMETHING WITCHY is a wonderful young adult romance that fans of The Morganville Vampires Series and The Soul Screamers Series will enjoy.  It was inspired by a poem written by a good friend of the author’s about a love potion, and she found it both sweet and funny. 

SOMETHING WITCHY will be $2.99 on April 15th.

EXCERPT:

For several long, tense minutes, we just sat there. The time ticked by slowly, and I got edgier and edgier with each passing second. Leave it to me to get myself into a situation like this. He was probably sitting there wondering how I would taste—and I hoped I gave him food poisoning—and where he was going to hide the body when he was done with me. One bloody murder scene after another played out in my mind, and I became more and more terrified with each one. I was shaking hard enough that I was surprised I wasn’t rocking the entire car. Therefore, when Nathan reached over and touched my cheek, I nearly jumped out of my skin.


AJ MYERS

 I started writing 8 years ago for my daughter, but now I write because I…well, because I have to write. Other than my husband and my kids, it’s my one true love. True, it cuts in on things like laundry and cooking (which I’m terrible at, anyway) but it makes me happy.

A few little things everyone should know about me…

Favorite Movie: The Count of Monte Cristo

Favorite Writing Spot: Outside. Even if it’s just on the porch, I seem to work better with a little fresh air.

Most Important Writing Tool: Headphones. I have to have music when I write. They also have the added bonus of letting everyone know I’m unavailable for conversation.

Alice in Wonderland Meets Sleepy Hollow in This 99c Thiller – April 15

SHADOW SLAYER is the second installment in the exciting Shadow series. Roxie discovers that she is the shadow slayer and defends her family and friends against the shadows that seek to become human. 

Fans of Fairest or Flutter will definitely like SHADOW SLAYER. Laura Elliott was inspired to write SHADOW SLAYER from how people have chosen who they are – their good or dark side. 

This will be also available on Nook and Apple on April 15th. 

EXCERPT:

“Roxie, I caught you! I was so late because Brian’s car got a flat. He fixed it so great, I couldn’t believe it. It’s like he went to bad ass school or something,” Ally says, laughing.“Ally. We hug. I swallow hard. Brian. Fixed. A. Flat. I mean it’s not brain surgery but believe me, if it doesn’t have an LCD screen, my brother Brian doesn’t think it exists. He doesn’t know how to fix a flat. O.M.G. Brian is probably a shadow too.


LAURA ELLIOTT

I love writing about enchanted road trips, shadow worlds, and alien romance while eating lots of popcorn. I live in a tree house on the central California coast. After twenty-plus years as a freelance graphic designer/animator with clients including E! Entertainment Television and The Los Angeles Times, I crossed over into the world of publishing non-fiction and followed my heart to the world of fiction.

My favorite food is POPCORN & jalepeno chips & malted milk balls…I love my treehouse for writing and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. I love listening to soundtracks from movies when I write. Words can distract me.
