One thing Cyn does have is her job. She’s a great firefighter, and when an arsonist strikes her beloved town, she’s ready to forget the unfulfilled parts of her life and throw herself into work – until Marigold Grimm’s beloved garden becomes the firebug’s next target.

Cyn puts out the blaze, but there’s more than one type of spark flying as Cyn and Marigold meet. Is her dream girl really within reach, or will it all go up in flames?

Guest Post: A Kernel of Truth by Jazzy Mitchell

Today I’m thrilled to welcome Jazzy Mitchell.

A Kernel of Truth

Jazzy here. I’m excited to talk about my latest book, Musings of a Madwoman, which follows three women as they navigate life, love, and the effects of a meteorite. This story was a labor of love, and pieces of me can be found throughout its pages. Like many writers, I take some of my life experiences and repurpose them in my stories. If a conversation, experience, or feeling makes an impression on me, it might find its way into the pages of my book. I’ve joked with friends and family how anything they say or do is fair game. That also holds true for the words I say and the actions I take. I thought you might like to know the background for one of the scenes which appears in MOAM.

In chapter two of MOAM, Patricia recounts how she presented a bouquet of roses to the object of her affection, Rudi Singlewood, at one of Rudi’s Broadway shows. This leads to Rudi showing up at Patricia’s book-signing event a year later. Although the rose-giving comes up several times in the book, I don’t include too many details. This is how my true life experience played out.

About eighteen years ago I traveled to New York City with some fellow teachers after the school year ended. I was excited to watch Patrick Stewart act the lead part in an Arthur Miller play, even if he was portraying an adulterer. We had front row seats, and I knew I was going to love the hell out of the show.

Close to the theater, I saw various bouquets displayed outside a flower shop. In a flash of inspiration, I purchased a dozen red-edged coral roses and brought them to the play. I was excited by the thought of giving them to an actor I admired. Throughout the show, I could smell the roses’ enticing scent, and I wondered how to present the flowers to him. Should I send them with an usher to his dressing room? Wait at the stage door after the show? I’d never tried to give a celebrity flowers before. Once the leads came onstage to take their final bows, I recognized my chance and took it. Extending my arm, I offered the bouquet to Mr. Stewart. He in turn offered it to the leading lady on his left before turning to repeat the action to the actress on his right. Both waved it away, shaking their heads while sporting coy smiles. I shook my head, too. Those roses were for Mr. Stewart, not them. He turned back to me and bowed low to the ground before, with a smile and a wink, he jogged off the stage, flowers in hand.

People approached me after the show, convinced my flower-giving was a prearranged publicity stunt. It wasn’t. A few weeks later, I received a handwritten thank you card on his personal stationery. I’d slipped my business card into the bouquet before thrusting it in the air, and he surprised me by taking the time to write me a sweet note. I still have that correspondence. It reads, “Thank you for the lovely flowers. I am so glad you enjoyed Mt. Morgan—and me. All the best.”

Did I write a book about him? Did I ask him to become my pen pal? Did I date him? No, those were all events which occurred in MOAM. Yet, my experience served as a launching pad for Patricia and Rudi’s first meeting and subsequent romance.

Why insert a real event into a book of fiction? Several reasons come to mind. To memorialize a memory for all posterity. To process my feelings regarding an event. To teach myself something I wasn’t able to learn at the time the event occurred. To relive the feelings attached to the memory. To explore the “what ifs.” To see whether the real life person involved in the scene ever reads the book and recognizes the event. To have some fun.

In MOAM, Patricia writes about some of her real life experiences in her best-selling romance, Star Light, Star Bright (Make My Wish Come True Tonight). Her book turns out to be autobiographical to a great extent, and it serves as one big love letter to Rudi. In her book she expresses her feelings for Rudi, and in an unexpected twist of fate, those feelings are accepted. Patricia ends up navigating a romance with an actress who turns out to be quite different than the person Patricia created in her mind.

This theme of recognizing the authentic person—the genuine uniqueness of an individual—by discounting the public persona, plays out several times through the three lead protagonists’ storylines. It’s a journey they take together and a journey other characters take with them. Interspersing small bits of my reality within MOAM is my way of taking the journey, too.

 

MUSINGS OF A MADWOMAN
by Jazzy Mitchell

SciFi / Paranormal Romance

Three women’s lives interweave as they struggle to navigate life and love. And the effects of a meteorite.

Patricia Steitz, a successful romance writer, is flabbergasted when Rudi Singlewood shows up at one of her book signings and initiates a summer romance. She worries that the fantasies she’s harbored regarding the world-renown Broadway actress may prevent her from accepting who Rudi really is. She relates her fears to her best friend, Marcia Struthers, a successful Manhattan litigator.

Knowing that Patricia has dreamed of Rudi for years, Marcia urges her to give the actress a chance by getting to know who she is behind her public persona. While working a high-profile case, Marcia must confront her resurging feelings for lead opposing counsel, Lexie Yamin, and the appearance of an unrequited love. All is not as it seems, however, as Marcia deals with unexpected physical changes and developing mental abilities after an encounter with a meteorite. Marcia’s not the only one dealing with changes induced by an extraterrestrial rock, though.

Kiernan Connelly, who has received intriguing letters over several months, begins to question her lifestyle. Her casual sexual relationship with Rudi and passable acting career no longer fulfill her. As Kiernan makes changes in her life, she finds herself dealing with the strange reality of being able to hear others’ thoughts. Could it be related to her close encounter with a meteorite?

A PROPER CUPPA TEA
by KG MacGregor

Romance

A disastrous office affair has left Channing Hughes unemployed and (very bloody) cynical. What better time to leave Boston for her native England, where her late grandfather has named her sole heir of the Hughes fortune, along with the centuries-old manor house that’s been in the family for generations. Only one problem with that plan—there is no Hughes fortune.

The only way out from under the hefty tax bill is to sell the manor as quickly as possible or find a high-level job to support it.

If anyone deserves to be cynical about life, it’s Dr. Lark Latimer. She overcame a dysfunctional upbringing in East Boston only to lose both her college sweetheart and a promising medical career when her Ma fell critically ill. Determined to bounce back, Lark signs on with a pharmaceutical company, a job that takes her abroad to investigate a drug trial gone sideways. She finds an English countryside that’s bursting with charm—including the dry-witted, sophisticated Channing, who may be just what the doctor ordered.

Neither woman imagined the spark they shared on their transatlantic flight would lead them to life-changing decisions. Will Channing give up a future with Lark to save her home? Or will Lark persuade her to sell the manor and return to Boston?

Their time clock is ticking.

 

WHAT HAPPENED AFTER…
Chicago Series Finale
by Nicole Pyland

Romance

Do you ever read a story, fall in love with the characters and wonder what happens to them after the book ends? Epilogues are nice, but they’re a snapshot in time. Maybe it’s a year after the end of the book or even just six months. Maybe there’s a proposal or a wedding. Maybe a character announces she’s pregnant. Maybe a character just got their dream job.

I write the epilogues in my books mostly for myself because I want to know where they go next. I like to check in on them to find out about those next big steps in their lives. What I’m doing here is adding to their stories.

There’s a danger in this, of course. What if you’re already satisfied with how the story ended for the characters? What if this ruins it for you? That is a risk you’ll have to decide on your own to take. I’m merely providing short glimpses into the lives of my characters beyond their epilogues.

If you plan to read these, please read all the books in the series first. Because the lives of the characters in the Chicago Series are so closely woven together, you won’t want to read the additional content for Eva and Ember, for example, until you’ve read all four of the Chicago Series books.

A DATE WITH DEATH
by Mia Archer

Available in Kindle Unlimited
Fantasy

Defeat an evil necromancer.
Save the school.
Get the girl.

As if senior year wasn’t already complicated enough! I just wanted to keep my head down, hang out with friends, prep for college, and worship Stacy Thompson from afar. Was that too much to ask?

I guess, because I got distracted by Stacy heading to cheer practice in a pair of impossibly tight shorts and stepped in front of a bus. That’s right. I died on the first day of school.

Oops.

Dying wasn’t the bad part. Not really. I’d died before, and I always bounced back. Call it a perk of being a reaper’s daughter. Only with this death I learned the terrible awesome truth: I keep bouncing back because I’m destined to become a reaper just like dear old dad!

That’s right. Me. A reaper. Complete with black robes and a scythe. The whole shebang. Yeah, right!

I figured with enough time I could avoid my fate. Only fate came looking for me when I followed Stacy, and her impossibly tight shorts, up to the infamous Thompson mansion. A haunted mansion that was once the haunt of an evil necromancer who sent his fair share of people to the other side, and was now a favorite makeout spot for teens with more hormones than sense.

Go to a makeout spot with Stacy? Yes please. Even if we were going with a group of friends. Even if the whole almost-date was ruined by a necromancer who should totally be long dead showing up, killing my friends, stealing their souls, and enslaving their bodies into his undead army!

Now I’m stuck with a ghost cheerleader who spends half her time acting like she’s interested in yours truly and half her time demanding I get her body back. Talk about confusing. Meanwhile I have to hide her existence from dear old dad so he doesn’t drag her to the other side, all while trying to figure out how to defeat an evil necromancer before he unleashes his undead minions on the world!

Call me the Gwen Reaper, because it’s time to kick some necromancer butt and save the girl!

LETTERS TO CUPID
by Miranda MacLeod
narrated by Stephanie Murphy

An American celebrity chef and an Italian chocolate maker cook up a magical recipe for true love.

In a tiny village in the hills of Tuscany is a statue of Cupid with the power to grant the deepest desires of the heart to all who ask. The village is home to single mother Valentina, who runs a struggling chocolate shop. All she’s ever wanted was to fit in, determined to provide a quiet, normal life for herself and her daughter. She works hard to keep it together, asking for nothing…especially not Cupid’s help. Not when that would mean admitting to herself and everyone else that her deepest desire is to find the love of a woman.

American celebrity chef Andie should be having the time of her culinary life while on a PR blitz in Tuscany. Instead, a tabloid scandal that threatens to destroy her career has her hiding in a remote hillside village. With nothing to do but worry and wait, she spends her time avoiding shame and infamy by flirting with a local chocolate maker who’s as irresistible as the sweets she sells. She’s shocked by the discovery that her heart longs for much more than a temporary distraction, but even if she can convince the reluctant Valentina to give her a chance, how can she balance a relationship in Italy with a career in the States?

When it comes to realizing the deepest desires of their hearts, it just might take an act of divine intervention for these two women to find their future together!

Guest Post: An Unexpected Lesson by Sophie Walker

Today I’m thrilled to welcome Sophie Walker who recently published An Unexpected Lesson, her debut novel.

***

This is such a crazy experience!

I never thought of myself as a writer. I used to keep a diary but that was about it! Then one day, after writing my sad entry about how confused I was about why I didn’t like boys, I turned to the back page of my diary and started writing down a short story. I don’t know what made me do it – A mix of my growing crush on Helena Bonham Carter and staring out the window pretending to be in a music video to old Miley Cyrus songs.

I was still unsure about my sexuality at this point, but the more I wrote, the more the two female characters came together and *SPOILER* they kissed. Everything suddenly made sense. I stopped writing my story and started living it, I came out to my family and started dating girls.

Fast forward 9 years and I was searching the internet for quick ways to make money, so that me and my fiancée could get married and what did I see but ‘write a novel’. Well, I already had a story in mind….

The story is so close to my heart as it was created at one of the best times of my life – when I discovered I was gay and the world suddenly made sense! Although the story is fictional, the emotions of the main character, April, reflect my own, which made it extra fun to write!

April is grown up in so many ways – she has travelled the world and spent her life surrounded by adults, but she is also very naïve. University and being around people her own age is something that she has never experienced before. Travelling has kept her in a little bubble where she feels like she knows who she is but, like many of us, university is a place where you really discover yourself. The second she sees Rachel she knows there is something drawing her to her (love at first sight, if you will). This is a connection that she hasn’t experienced before so it’s hard to understand what it is at first. Given some time, April slowly realises that maybe you don’t have to fall for the boy…

This is the first book I’ve written, but not the last, The Unexpected Series is a TRILOGY! So you have two more books to look forward to. When I’m not writing I also act, I sing, I own my own Photography business and I spend time with my fiancée. We are currently planning our wedding, which is fast approaching and also working on buying a flat, so it’s a busy busy year.

I met my fiancée years before we got together, when we were both working at Tesco (of all places!). She was a bread girl and I was checkouts. We rarely spoke but her nickname, given by me was ‘hot blonde girl’. A few years later, after I’d finished university, I spotted hot blonde girl at the gym…heart pounding I did what anyone does who has a crush on someone – ignore them. Luckily, she was much braver than me and asked me on a date! And the rest, they say, is history.

That is a brief background to me and my writing. I hope people enjoy the book because, as cheesy as it sounds, it really does come from the heart. I don’t claim to be the best writer but I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished!

But her wife knows how to get her way and Peyton finds herself roped into renovations. This… this may be the straw that breaks her marriage’s back, and Peyton’s worried about how not worried that makes her.

That is, until a seventy-year-old bundle of letters and a time-worn diary fall on her head.

Soon, her life is dictated by not just her mother, but the upheaval of war and the one thing she never expected to find: love.

And Marty will risk anything and everything to hold onto it.

Guest Post: Awakened by Fate by Lynn Lawler

Today I’m thrilled to welcome Lynn Lawler.

*

Hello Everyone and thank you for joining me today. I want to thank TB Markinson for inviting me to share with you. As you know, my book, Awakened by Fate has been out for a little while now. I couldn’t thank you enough for the support you have given me. In addition to the book, I’ve enjoyed doing my blog. I have read some really great books, so stay tuned for my future reviews.

Today I’m sharing with you a bit about my book. I have found my experience with it to be eye-opening and I too had a spiritual awakening as a result of writing it.

Jackie, my protagonist, is a self-centered woman who thinks she has her life all in order. She has a job that she strives to do, although many times she gets distracted. None-the-less, she still tries. She has ambitions but doesn’t know how to go after them, so she is more or less in a stuck situation career-wise.

She is in a marriage that is pretty much platonic except when she feels the obligation to be a wife. He lets her have as many female lovers as she’d like, but he has to her only male. He is often out of town on business.

Jackie is on a path leading nowhere and she knows it. Fear stops her from pursuing her dreams.

Then an event happens that totally changes her world and turns it upside down. Suddenly suppressed feelings come out of the woodwork and she is forced to deal with them. A lot of new things happen that are bewildering, and she can’t handle certain things. She does what she can to cope.

She meets people along the way, including those who teach her things to help her grow.

In many ways Jackie speaks for many people. Her life changes, and she is forced to look at her issues.

I have Jackie visit places which are crucial to her growth.

There is plenty of romance in the story to go around.

I am now going to share an excerpt.

*

Lisa tapped her head and said, “Now I remember what I wanted to talk to you about. Tom told me that you love to go to the downtown Art Walk. You know, I’ve never been. Would you be up to going with me sometime?”

“Yeah, there’s one coming up next month. I’d love to go. What time do you get off from work?” Jackie said.

“Five o’clock, but I can always find an excuse to get off early. If you’d like, I could come pick you up.”

Lisa gave her phone to Jackie so she could add her information. The second Jackie touched it, she felt a bolt of energy flow through her. An instant later, she saw a flash of Lisa standing in front of a sculpture grinning. Jackie dropped the phone into her lap.

“Jackie, did I say something to offend you? If I did, I’m really sorry.”

“No. I’m not sure what just happened.”

“Are you feeling nauseous? Why don’t you sit right here, and I’ll get you a cold towel?”

When Lisa returned, she handed the towel to Jackie. Jackie buried her head in it, absorbing the moisture.

Why am I seeing random visions? This is maddening!

After a minute, she put the towel down and said, “Sometimes I just get lightheaded. It’s nothing to worry about.”

 *

 

I want to thank TB Markinson for inviting me to share today. It has been a pleasure seeing new and familiar faces. I invite you to go read my book, Awakened by Fate and join Jackie as she embarks on her life-changing journey.

 

AWAKENED BY FATE

Jackie is a woman living life according to her own rules. She’s married, but it’s the unspoken, open kind. She can have as many female lovers as she likes; she just can’t talk about them.

After a bizarre encounter turns her world upside down, things slowly begin to change. She finds herself in desperation as she searches for answers. What she discovers is nothing is delivered in a neatly wrapped box.

Now that everything has been brought out into the open, she finds she can’t run away from her truth anymore. With her new life, comes new responsibilities and a different outcome than what she was expecting.

Jackie isn’t alone in the story. She meets several new people who help her along her journey.

 

MEET THE AUTHOR

Lynn Lawler is a fiction writer, who writes stories greatly inspired by the LGBTQ community and her own experiences.  Her novel, Awakened By Fate is a story about a woman in denial about her true potential who encounters a reality that opens her up to a new awareness; suddenly things she feared the most became her life.

Lynn has had a lifelong interest in writing and wrote short stories while in school.  In college, she wrote an editorial that was published in The Detroit Free Press.  It focused on the positives of children’s education in the sciences.  She found this to be very inspiring and felt that people needed awareness to create an attraction for students to study these.

During her early adult years, Lynn went on a spiritual journey to Arizona seeking enlightenment.  While there she got to experience some things that were life-changing.  She first managed a vendor booth, selling nutritional supplements at an open market.  Then, as one door closed another one opened.  After this job ended the next day she started working at a produce department in Tempe, AZ.  While working at the coop, she educated people on sprouting as well as the health benefits of juicing. Lynn is vegan and has been vegetarian her whole adult life.

She also has work experience in Architectural design.  She likes the creativity of this field, but her passion lies in writing.

Lynn started writing several years ago after she watched a documentary on the life of the 20th-century writer Willa Cather.  At the same time, she experienced a loss that encouraged her to take this direction.  After writing the initial outline and first draft, the author embraced a new awareness that changed the path of her life.  The trials of Lynn’s life have only served as stepping stones to a brighter outlook and a stronger spirit.

 

Lynn has always been a fan of books with some of her favorite authors being Mary Higgins Clark and J.K. Rowling.   She also loves reading the works of other LGBTQ authors such as Suzie Carr, KA Moll, and Amy Dunne.  She enjoys material of the unknown, mysterious, and mystical.

She is the owner of Lynn Lawler’s Book Blog, a site where she has interviews and reviews. It can be found at www.lynnlawler.wordpress.com and www.lynnlawler.blogspot.com.

In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, meditation and watching baseball.  She lives in SoCal with her wife and cats.

Darcy is a combat medic, or she used to be. Her whole identity was wrapped up in the Army until she was injured and sent back to civilian life. After ten years away, there’s not much waiting for her at home, but she’s determined to rebuild her life so she starts going to meet-ups to make new friends.

That’s how she befriends the meet-up coordinator, and how she discovers he’s allergic to shellfish.

One creative intubation later and she’s following him to the ER where she meets the passionate, beautiful and untouchable Krys. She stops only long enough to give Darcy a piece of her mind, but that’s all it takes to know…

Darcy wants Krys to be in the life she’s building.

This is the third book in the Lakeside Hospital series. Each book can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel and the series can be read in any order.

THE DEEP AND SHINING DARK
The Marek Series: Book 1
by Juliet Kemp

Fantasy

Magic within the city-state of Marek works without the need for bloodletting, unlike elsewhere in Teren, thanks to an agreement three hundred years ago between an angel and the founding fathers. It also ensures that political stability is protected from magical influence. Now, though, most sophisticates no longer even believe in magic or the cityangel.

But magic has suddenly stopped working, discovers Reb, one of the two sorcerers who survived a plague that wiped out virtually all of the rest. Soon she is forced to acknowledge that someone has deposed the cityangel without being able to replace it. Marcia, Heir to House Fereno, and one of the few in high society who is well-aware that magic still exists, stumbles across that same truth. But it is just one part of a much more ambitious plan to seize control of Marek.

Meanwhile, city Council members connive and conspire, unaware that they are being manipulated in a dangerous political game. A game that threatens the peace and security not just of the city, but all the states around the Oval Sea, including the shipboard traders of Salina upon whom Marek relies.

To stop the impending disaster, Reb and Marcia, despite their difference in status, must work together alongside the deposed cityangel and Jonas, a messenger from Salina. But first they must discover who is behind the plot, and each of them must try to decide who they can really trust.
