Author Marissa Carmel

I saw the new cover for Marissa Carmel's iFeel and its absolutely beautiful! She asked that I share it with my readers today! Here it is:

iFeel has been regenred as New Adult and we think this is the PERFECT cover!! We hope you agree too!!

Lust. Anger. Hate. Desire. Love. Happiness. Joy. iFeel. Liv Christianni is isolated, alone, tortured and withdrawn, saddled with the torrential downpour of the world’s emotions.

Accepting of her providence Liv has lost all hope, until one day fate steps in and spins the course of her life like a spiraling top. Hunted by a Spirit Stalker, Liv is forced to gain control of herself and her surroundings, threatened by the touch of her immortal love; she must find a way to survive both physically and emotionally as her reality is shaken up like dice on a Craps table.

Can she find the courage to accept her true self? Can she love unconditionally cognizant of the condemning consequences? Can she rise from the ashes to become the person she was always meant to be?

Funny, witty, real, and poignant, iFeel rips into your soul, and sets your emotions on fire. If you are a fan of Charmed or Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries or The Secret Circle this series is for you!

The Shadow Man Tour


Shadow Man (Lash Series Book #2)
When a renegade vampire begins amassing followers, threatening America’s vampire hierarchy, weresnake Lash partners with old enemies and new allies to annihilate them. Betrayed and left for dead, Lash reemerges the victor, catching the eye of the sultry nightclub singer Cassandra Nile, even as enemies close in from every side.

A huge thank you to M.M. Shelley for having me here today!

I’m here today to promote Shadow Man, the second book in my paranormal action adventure Lash series.


Vampires in fiction can run the gamut of sweet and lovable to homicidal maniacs. Sometimes they can appear to be both, like Anne Rice’s Louis, Armand, or Lestat. Vampires appear in dramatic Lash series, playing the roles of both protagonist and villain Without further ado, let me introduce you to the main vampires of the Lash series.

• Abraham Hamilton – Referred to by Lash s his “vampire boss,” Abraham administers New Orleans as part of the vampire ruling hierarchy. He meets Lash in the 1920s, and the two become close friends. While definitely a gentleman that values honor, justice and fairness, Abraham is also ruthless, shrewd, and capable of killing…like all of my paranormal characters.

• Valerian – Lash’s main antagonist since being burned with magic fire that scarred his beautiful looks, Valerian is a child killer that enjoys torture, as well as a former member of the vampire elite. Driven into hiding, he plots revenge on not only the weresnake that burned him, but everyone that Lash calls family or friend.

• Jacob – Valerian’s replacement as Abraham’s boss, Jacob is also a hater of women who trusts almost no one other than vampires he himself has made. Using them as his sole guards, he stays mostly at his estate, as he’s a coward at heart. Initially he is Lash’s enemy, but relents and joins forces with Lash out of fear of Eli and his followers in Shadow Man.

• Eli – A vampire preacher who is determined to overthrow the existing vampire hierarchy and bring equality to all his kind, Eli amasses close to a thousand followers with his message of peace and brotherhood…until Lash is summoned to stop him.

• Devlin Dalcon – Leader of the American vampire elite, Devlin is powerful, breathtaking, and also rumored to be unstable after holding his throne for over a hundred years. Lash and he begin a friendship that ends when Lash finds out how unscrupulous that Devlin can be. But when tragedy strikes in Shadow Man, Devlin is the one that saves Lash from certain death.

• Danial Racklan – Devlin’s brother and a detective by trade, Danial is intelligent, resourceful, and nurturing a grudge against Lash. While they will have to work together to stop Eli, Danial has a backup plan to take care of his foe as soon as Eli himself is dust.

A renegade vampire begins amassing a flock of true believers, threatening America’s vampire hierarchy. Weresnake Lash partners with old enemy Danial and new allies Burl and Spiderboy to track down and annihilate them. Betrayed and left for dead, Lash reemerges the victor, edging ever upward in the Assassin’s Ranking, and catching the eye of the sultry nightclub singer Cassandra Nile. Drawn into drugs by Cassie, Lash begins to doubt himself, yearning to leave his life of violence, even as enemies close in from every side.

I went through the door, and felt a bullet slam into me like mule kick in the chest. I crumpled to my knees, just to feel another hard kick right above the first one.

I toppled over backward and crawled inside, a few bullets kicking up dust as they hit the dirt near me. I’d dropped my gun outside, but I pulled my spare and waited, alternating between watching the door and the one uncovered window.

Five minutes passed, and then a burning torch sailed in the window to land on the bed. I bolted up, hearing the lead bullets my body had pushed out of me fall to the floor, and stomped on the fire, trying to put it out. If it caught the cabin on fire, I’d be toast, or shot full of holes when I fled the burning building. I had to stay here until dark, at least. I cursed myself for not calling Burl and telling him I was going back here. I knew he’d have come with me, if I’d asked him to. And then I cursed myself again, because through all of my questions to Eli, I’d never asked who had driven the trucks full of vampires for him when they’d escaped the first time from Louisiana. It was a sure bet that the non-vampires who had were the same ones outside this door, waiting to fillet me for killing their leader, and I had no fucking clue if there were two or twenty of them. Fuck!

The rest of the day passed like a thousand years. I was tense as a spring, and every sound was like a footstep coming closer, every creak of the settling house like a hand on the doorknob, ready to pull open the door. I waited motionless, my muscles aching. But nothing else happened.

I finally stretched a little, being very careful to stay close to the floor. I wasn’t naïve enough to think that whoever was out there had just left. Most likely, they were watching for signs of movement so they could fill me full of holes.

Finally, it was night. I changed to snake, even though I was freezing, because I needed my snake hearing to try to find out if any of the men outside were sneaking up on me. I waited for a time, but nothing happened except I got colder and colder in my snake form, my blood flow slowing to a crawl. Eventually, I knew I either had to move or die.

Slowly, I slid out of the open window, scenting the air, trying to make no noise, thanking God there was no moonlight to expose me. I knew my black and tan scales blended in very well with the dirt and rocks, so I just had to get to the woods and I’d be out of the open. From there, I could make it back to my truck and my spare guns and ammo, not to mention a clean pair of warm clothes.

But before I’d gone two feet from the cabin, a huge form rose up out of the dirt in front of me, dirt sliding off its scales from where it had lain in wait for me.

I moved immediately to slither away, but I was too slow from the cold to evade him. Before I knew it, I was being crushed in his coils, his huge body wrapping around me like a lover. Despair washed over me, because I knew the scent. Hell, I’d trusted it!

I reared back my head and sank my fangs in deep, pumping venom into Burl’s body. He let out a loud hiss of pain, but he didn’t let me go. Even though I kept giving him poison, he squeezed me tighter. I bit him again and again, but he just kept squeezing.

“Why?” I hissed weakly, taking my mouth off him. “I thought we were friends.”

“We are,” he hissed gently. “And stop biting me, Lash. I’ve taken an antidote for your poison. All you biting me does is piss me off. I’m trying to make this not hurt you more than it has to. Relax and stop struggling.”

Recently I signed up for a photoshop class at a local photography school. I have always been interested in photography and have a taken a few classes at this school before. With all of the amazing pictures that I've seen on Pinterest and other sites I wanted to learn how I can create my own photos with a surreal or creative look.

The class that I signed up for is called Mirror of the Mind and I have learned so much in such a short time.
Here is one of pictures that we created in the class...

In this photo I took a picture of my niece who fell asleep in her car seat and placed her on a bed of flowers. You can see that in the first photo she has her seat belt straps and in the second one I removed them. I also styled her hair.
I had a bit more fun and with photos I had on hand I put this together for my online read Haunted Souls...

Hickey of the Beast Book Tour

Today I would like to welcome Isabel Kunkle and her book Hickey of the Beast. Here is a little info on her book:

Connie thought freshman year might suck. She never thought it’d be literal.

Bad dreams? No big deal. After all, Connie Perez is starting her first year in the prep school her mom runs. Anyone would be a little stressed, right? When she starts dreaming about strange creatures and places that don’t make sense, she doesn’t think much about it: there’s other stuff on her mind. Then she starts noticing that the people she dreams about get sick right afterwards.

Then everything gets weird.

There’s something bad on the campus of Springden Academy. Something that feeds on students and warps their minds. And, as Connie and her friends try to figure out what’s going on, it starts to look like she’s the only one who can stop it. Freshman year was hard enough without having to fight evil after class.

Guest Post

Hickey of the Beast is the first YA novel I’ve written, and the first novel I’ve published that had a modern setting. There are a lot of really fun things about that: there’s a casualness to a modern teenager’s voice that makes it a good time to write, I could work my own memories into the story, and hey, I didn’t have to spend a lot of time explaining how the world works, because my audience knows.

You know what was tough, though, that I didn’t expect at all?


Connie and her friends are modern high school students. They’re pretty socially active, which means they go to dances and listen to new albums; they’re also on the mainstream end of things. The music they listen to would be the music that most people their age listen to--which was where I ran into a few problems.

See, I don’t really listen to the radio very often: Grooveshark and Pandora are my friends at work, and I take the train rather than driving. I also Netflix most of my TV shows, which means I’m anywhere from two to forty years behind the times there, and I don’t go out to many bars. My own taste is, um, eclectic: Connie doesn’t seem like she’d listen to nearly as much Billy Joel as I do. And while I could be vague about music in most places, I wanted to at least have the references right in case they came up.

What did I do? Well, like Connie, I turned to my friends. I know a few people who actually are more connected than I am, and I asked them for references, and YouTube links. (YouTube is kind of awesome that way.) I also exploited the fact that I already liked Ke$ha (yes, I know, shut up) and trusted in Pandora to take it from there.

In the end, I thought I had a pretty good idea for whatever musical references came up--and I ended up discovering some cool new songs. That’s another advantage of this whole writing thing: it gives you an excuse to learn.

First two chapters, in a flippable mini-widget:

Murder on Mars Preview...

My latest YA will be released later this month and here is a small preview...

New Orleans, LA

They told her to never venture down alleyways on dark nights—not when the moon was hiding, too afraid to show itself. She was also told to never let her cell phone run low on its battery, so low in fact that a call could not be made on it. Her cell phone had powered down on its own only moments ago and was useless to her now.

A howl reverberated down the alleyway, at first it sounded far away, but it seemed to travel down the alley until the howl become deafening. Rosemary had to cover her ears as she quickly looked about for signs of the beast that made the noise. Chiding herself for being fearful she urged herself down the remaining alley drawing her arms close around her self almost as if she meant to ward off evil spirits and keep her soul safe.

She had made her decision very late into the night; her mind had raced from one scenario to another. Seeking peace Rosemary grabbed her coat, still dressed in her night gown she walked on foot to Henry Davis’ home. He kept a residence in the Garden District, a residence that he had assured her his own wife didn’t even know about.

A dark shadow blocked the light from a street light at the end of the alley; Rosemary halted her steps, straining her eyes she tried to make out the shadow. Squinting, her eyes unable to see, she took one step closer than gasped in fear. It was the last sound she made as an unseen blunt force struck her from behind dropping her to the ground. Rosemary’s breathing came to a stop and her eyes went missing from their sockets with the greatest of ease.

“No witness,” a raspy voice stated. “No witness,” it repeated once more. A shadow dropped down beside Rosemary as it searched through her pockets, they did not come away empty handed. Clutched within the shadowy grasp was a diary containing loose pictures, within seconds the shadow was gone leaving behind the remains of a fallen Rosemary.

Hex and the Single Witch

Today is the tour stop for Hex and the Single Witch;Vehicle City Vampires Book One
By Roxanne Rhoads

About the book
Anwyn Rose is descended from a long line of powerful witches yet she can barely cast spells young witchlings have mastered. She has one functioning witch gift, the power of knowing, which she puts to good use as a Detective on Flint’s Preternatural Investigation Team.

It’s a new era in Vehicle City, supernaturals are running the town.

The P.I.T has their hands full with paranormal crimes. Top priority is a serial killer, who appears to be a vampire, draining young women in the city.

Anwyn is on the case with her sexy partner Detective Mike Malone. Complicating things is her relationship Galen, a vampire who looks more guilty than innocent, although Anwyn trusts her instincts even if her power is on the fritz.

Mysterious spells, compromising situations, and a possible demon on the loose make it hard to focus on the case, but Anwyn has to make things right before the human police execute the wrong vampire.

Hex and the Single Witch contains magick, a little bit of mystery, a lot of supernatural mayhem, and a sexy love triangle that will leave you wanting more.

My Review

Heat, passion and lust. This book has it all. Anwyn is a psychically gifted detective who unfortunately (or not, depending on how you look at it) lives in a town where the strange and the unexpected are all to common. Hex and the Single Witch has a great mix of characters who jive well with one another creating a nice flow throughout the story. I found Anwyn to be both engaging and fun as she found her way and discovered who she was and what she wanted. Hex and the Single Witch is the first in the Vehicle City Vampire series and I am eagerly awaiting the next chapter.

Excerpt featuring Mike Malone:
“You should have told me why you hate vampires so much. It was during the Hysteria wasn’t it?” The damn Hysteria ruined and destroyed so many lives all thanks to a bunch of power hungry vampires and Others who thought it was a good idea to let humans know they existed. Like the witch hunts, the burning times from before hadn’t proven that was a bad idea. But, no, they thought a new, modern generation of humans could handle it.
The Hysteria proved humans hadn’t evolved much. Of course, neither had the Others.
“Yeah,” he said into his hands.
“You know I lost my dad to vampires at the end. At the last battle. The rogues had the humans all riled up. No one knew what was going on, the riot started and there was this group of mercenaries, humans killing anything that moved. My dad’s team tried to get them out of there, but as soon as they realized vampires and Others were on the police squad the mercenaries decided to wipe everyone out. My dad was shot and while he was down rogue vampires finished him off.”
“Then how can you still be close to them?” Mike sneered.
“Humans played their part in his death too, Mike. Can I shut myself off from the world and hate everyone? It’s unrealistic. I understand your hate, but they are not all bad.”
“They all drink blood. They are monsters designed to kill humans.” His snarl looked ferocious.
I had not realized his hate ran so deep.
“And humans are designed to kill animals and each other. Doesn’t mean we all do.” Stubborn man.
“Anwyn, I’m sorry I can’t look at them the way you do.” He glanced at me then stared at the floor.
I touched his face gently and made him look at me. “Mike you can’t carry pain and anger around with you forever. Believe me, I know. I dragged it around with me for a long time. I lost both my dad and my mom that night. Even though my mom still lives and breathes, she’s not the same. But I can’t change it, and I can’t hate everyone for it. I just have to accept it. I took this job to try and prevent other kids from growing up with this pain and anger. Isn’t that why you took this job too? You know we have to fight the bad guys and take help from all the good guys we can, right?”
“Yeah,” he muttered.
I caressed his strong jaw. Goddess, he was a beautiful man. And more complex and tender than I had thought. I took off his top hat and laid it on the desk so I could run my fingers through his wild wavy hair. The move startled Mike and he look at me with a puzzled expression on his face for a moment before heat flared in his eyes.
As soon as I saw the flames in his eyes my body responded. A burning need rose inside me, an ache suddenly needed to be filled.
Mike’s expression changed into one that promised deliciously wicked things. Hot damn.

Playlist for Hex and the Single Witch
There’s tiny mystery in Hex that does not get wrapped up in this book. It is minor but it seems to have people wondering, which is good. I want them to wonder.
It’s the mystery of the changing ringtones.
Hex opens with vampires strutting on a runway to Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy”, it turns out Anwyn’s dreaming and it’s her phone ringing with Too Sexy as her ringtone. A ringtone she did not set.
Throughout the book Anwyn’s ringtones keep getting changed. She’s not the one changing them.
She doesn’t think too much of it because she has a lot of other distractions going on. She briefly wonders from time to time how the ringtones keep getting changed and why but nothing ever comes of it.
A few readers have brought this up. No worries though I left that tidbit dangling exactly for that reason- to make everyone wonder- who, why, how?
There will be answers in the next book. J
Until then enjoy the songs that were chosen for this book’s ringtones.
1          I'm Too Sexy   by Right Said Fred       
This song opens the book and is one of Mike Malone’s ringtones
2          If You Think I'm Sexy  by Rod Stewart
Another ringtone change for Malone, yes most of the ringtones are Malone’s    
3          Closer  by Nine Inch Nails       
This is one of Galen’s ringtone
4          I'm Sexy And I Know It   by LMFAO     
Again a Mike Malone ringtone LOL     
5          I Touch Myself      by Divinyls             
This one is never heard but Anwyn mentions it as a previous ringtone for Malone
6          Witchy Woman   by Kristin Chenoweth  
This is Mel’s ringtone   

You can listen to all the songs here

The Tragic Muse

While at the Huntington Library we came across a fascinating oil on canvas  by artist Joshua Reynolds. It stood out amongst the rest which were traditional oil paintings of the elite. At first we were not sure what to make of it, because it's such a dramatic painting to have on display and a few feet from The Blue Boy by Gainsborough.

But, soon we understood and we saw it for the true gem that it was. This is a painting of Reynolds tragic muse, actress Sarah Siddons. A legendary actress of her time and well known for her dramatic roles on the stage. He captured her nestled between two horrible looking creatures. The look of tragic etched on her face explains the scene well. As she is caught in the middle of pity and fear.

Yes, that does look like a vampire in the background to her left. The vampire like creature stands  for Pity and the creature on her right is Fear. In true artist fashion, Reynolds incorporated himself into the painting, as he represents the creature fear.

This oil painting showcases his muse, Sarah Siddons perfectly. Not only does it do that, but it also displays a gifted artist in Reynolds.

Huntington Library

I recently visited the Huntington Library, its filled with beautiful gardens none of which are the same. Here are some pictures I took of the Japanese Garden. It has been quite a while since my last visit and better than I remember.
 There are volunteers who help with the upkeep of the grounds and the friendliest docents who are so knowledgeable and can direct you to which ever part of the museum/gardens you wish to see.

We had tea in the Tea Room and I consider myself a loyal coffee drinker, but I found myself swayed by the lovely selections of tea they had to offer.

The Tea Room

Japanese Garden

I found this to be a very tranquil garden and could easily spend hours reading our indulging in my love of photography. There are benches to relax on or if you prefer (which we did) you can sit on the grass and just catch up with friends.

Author J.A. Howell

Welcome to the Mistaken book tour! There are so many exciting things going on with the tour, such as a great giveaway that includes a chance to win a paperback copy of Mistaken, bookmarks, a fun magnet and a Mistaken Charm Necklace. I'd like to thank J.A. Howell for stoping by!

Music from Mistaken

Music has always been a big part of my life, so it isn’t surprising that I always am writing to music. Below are some songs that inspired various parts of Mistaken. I may not share exactly why each song fits so I don’t give away too much of the story, but if you read the book you might understand them a bit better.

1.       Emotion Sickness by Silverchair- The tone of this song just really  seemed to fit the tone of the prologue. Somewhat abrupt in parts, very emotional, and it gives a sense that things are spiraling out of control.
2.       Paradise by Coldplay- “When she was just a girl, she expected the world, but it flew away in her sleep.” Definitely suits the Dillan we meet in Chapter One.
3.       Ghost By Your Side by Lovedrug- I just felt this suited her  first glimpse of Trey, and the ensuing  bus chase. Also, I LOVE this band.
4.       Sober by Pink- Dillan’s breakdown and ensuing self-medicating. “The quiet scares me cause it screams the truth.”
5.       Miss You Love by Silverchair- I imagine something like this was playing on the radio during the time after the meds and alcohol kicked in. Also another great Silverchair song.
6.       Paint It, Black by The Rolling Stones- Trey finds out his brother is dead/visits his grave-he’s pretty pissed…
7.       Memories Remain & Do Or Die by Dropkick Murphys- Most likely what may have been playing when Dillan elbowed Jamie into the face the day the met.
8.       The Ghost Of You by My Chemical Romance- Dillan’s nightmare and her feelings about everything that was hidden from her about Jamie.
9.       Buried Myself Alive by The Used- The ride out to Dillan’s grandmother’s house.
10.   Blue and Yellow by The Used- Talking about her parents.
11.   All That I’ve Got by The Used-  Hanging out at the stream. Another of my favorite songs.
12.   Take It Away by The Used- Fits Trey’s rage after his conversation with Agent Luciano. Outside he looks calm, on the inside he is probably smashing everything  in his reach.
13.   Don’t Cry by Guns N’ Roses- Definitely is the song playing at the bar.
14.   I think I Smell A Rat by The White Stripes- I can’t really say much about this song. J
15.   Creep (Acoustic) by Radiohead- suits Dillan and Trey’s growing  and very conflicted feelings.
16.   A Martyr For My Love For You by The White Stripes-  Trey’s song to Dillan.  “I could stay awhile, but sooner or later I’ll break your smile.”
17.   Disenchanted by My Chemical Romance- Dillan feeling confused about, well…everything, and missing Trey.
18.   Bulls on Parade by Rage Against The Machine-  Fit very well with Trey’s mother’s death.
19.   Hang ‘Em High by My Chemical Romance-  Trey discovering Dillan is gone and going after her.
20.   If I Ever Leave This World Alive by Flogging Molly- Beautiful song.  “She says I’m okay; I’m alright. Though you have gone from my life. You said that it would; now everything should be alright.” Best sung at a Flogging Molly concert at the top of your lungs with a beer in hand.
21.   Good Life by OneRepublic-  My song for Trey.  If this were a movie, this would fit the ending as the camera slowly zooms up and away.

Book Description:

One year ago, two bullets from a .45 caliber pistol ripped away any hopes Dillan had of a future with her fiancé, Jamie. On the anniversary of Jamie’s death, the appearance of his estranged twin brother, Trey, leaves Dillan wondering what other secrets her prefect fiancé was hiding. When Trey learns of his brother’s death, Dillan takes pity on him and gives him a place to stay.

Trey’s erratic behavior and a series of suspicious phone calls lead Dillan to believe that Trey knows more about the circumstances surrounding Jamie’s death than he’s letting on. With all leads exhausted and Jamie’s murderer still on the loose, Trey is Dillan’s last hope for finding the truth.

Sometimes the truth hurts… but in Dillan’s case it could kill her.
