Guardians of 
Summerfeld: Full Series: Books 1-4  only 99c
Melissa Delport

The war between vampires and the fae waged for over a thousand years. To save their species, the fae called on the last of their magic to create a city, hidden from the world, in which they could live out their days in peace. 

Twelve humans were chosen to guard this sanctuary. Granted the gift of immortality for their protection, they became known as the Guardians. They are all that stands between the last of the fae and the vampires who hunt them.

Now, a Guardian is dead and her sister seeks vengeance. But the city faces its greatest threat yet, and the only way to save it is to align herself with her mortal enemy: the most powerful vampire in existence.

Grab this bestselling four-book box set now for only 99c.

What Are You Reading This Weekend?

WTC bestseller 2 July 2019.pngDear Readers

What are you reading this weekend?

I’m busy packing for my trip to Scotland! I’m leaving on Sunday! SO excited.

We’ll be attending a writing and publishing conference in Edinburgh, then hopping over to England for a wedding.

Someone remind me to pack a dress!

***

I was so thrilled with the result of my international (non-US) BookBub sale this week. We sold over 600 box sets, and ‘When Tomorrow Calls’ reached #14 overall in the Amazon Australia store!

Next, we’re hoping for a US BookBub. Please hold thumbs!

I am finishing up ‘Sticky Fingers 5’ tomorrow and I really enjoyed writing it. I think it has something for everyone. It’s not quite as dark as Sticky Fingers 4, but it certainly has its moments! I’ll let you know as soon as it’s live, which should be in the next few days.

The more I write short stories, the more I love them. I can’t wait to get started on book 6.

If you missed the box set sale, it’s still on at 99c if you want to grab it. (Sale ends Sunday)

SONG OF THE WEEK

I’m currently obsessed with Eiro Nareth, who plays covers of famous film soundtracks and classic rock. There’s some beautiful stuff there, including Hans Zimmer compositions.

PICTURE OF THE WEEK

I snapped this on my daily walk. No filter needed.

Which reminds me, I now have an author Instagram account! If you’d like to follow me, here’s the link: https://www.instagram.com/authorjtlawrence/

I also have a personal IG account, which I’ve had for years. If pictures of cats and/or small children bore you, STAY AWAY!

That’s it for now! I’ll be back soon with the ‘Sticky Fingers 5’ launch announcement.

EXCERPT

The married couple, Eddie and Roberta, had to drag the old man into the plush reception of the EverAfter frail care centre. 


“Pops!” beseeched Eddie. He was sweating with the effort. “Don’t fight us, please!”


“We love you, Pops,” said Roberta, her eyes shining with tears. “We’re bringing you here because we love you. Because it’s the best place for you to be.” Her jewellery flashed under the artificial lights.


“They can take care of you here, Pops,” said Eddie.


“Don’t call me that!” shouted the old man, trying to wrench his elbow away from Eddie. “I’m not your father!”


The smartly dressed receptionist left his station and came around the white marble counter, a concerned look on his face. He clicked a button on his silver headset; a modern Madonna halo. 
“We need two orderlies at reception.”


The old man managed to break away from Roberta and kick over a metal tray nearby, the contents of which went clattering all over the floor, along with Eddie’s Rolex.


“Make that four orderlies, and a gurney,” said the male Madonna, then switched the headset off. He scooped the watch off the floor. “You’re the Malones, I assume?”


Eddie and Roberta looked up at him at the same time.

“Yes,” said Roberta. “We called ahead.”


“Let go!” Pops roared. He was tall, and stooped, and looked a hundred years old. His hair floated in an untidy cloud around his head, and his teeth were the colour of illegal ivory.


“Yes,” said Madonna, passing the Rolex back to Eddie. “We’ve been expecting you. Mr. Malone’s room is ready.”
“Phone my son!” shouted the old man. “Phone my son, and he’ll tell you that I don’t know these people and that I don’t belong here!”


Eddie looked distraught. “I am your son, Pops.”


“You’re a liar!” yelled the ancient man, stabbing his dead branch of a finger into Eddie’s chest. “Let me go!”

STORY SEED
This week’s story seed is a meme I came across on Facebook. It’s funny and a bit dark, which as you might know, sums up my tastes pretty accurately.

Here it is:

LOL!

And here is a small snippet from my brand new story collection, Sticky Fingers 4, which kind of (coincidentally) goes along with the meme.

“My insomnia took my sleep hostage.

When I did manage to drift off I had begun to talk—and sometimes walk—in my sleep. Eleanor had told me I was calling out other women’s names. As you can imagine, that didn’t go down well.

“Who the hell is Claire?” she asked one morning, slamming her toothbrush into the jar.

I just shrugged. What could I say? I could hardly tell her that Claire was a seven-year-old who had cracked glasses and a fatal head contusion.”

The Sky Fall Conspiracy
Joseph Bendoski
What makes a nation believe a lie?

William Stephenson is an expert in mass media persuasion and propaganda. He watched the rise of Hitler on a mountain of lies, but Stephenson also believes that the Nazis can be undone by the same power that created them: propaganda.

There is just one problem.

All foreign broadcasts are illegal in Germany. At best Stephenson will have a day before the Nazi soldiers storm his radio station. It took Hitler over a decade to change the beliefs of the people; one day is not enough … or is it?

Shadow Rising (Amazon Bestseller) — Only 99c 
Gabby Fawkes

With my pointed ears and badass bow, I was born to run and hunt in the woods of upstate New York, but I’m a country gal, at heart. I don’t give two craps about Sun/Moon politics, or the Big Apple. But then, everything changed. My dad died, and my mom found a new guy to love, William Geiser – the Sun Mayor of New York City…

Now they’re sending me to Zenith Academy, a supernatural school for Sun class magicals – Celestials, Mages, the elite of the elite. By night, the school becomes Eclipse, an Academy for vampires, and the creatures that own the night.

But everything isn’t as it first seems. I’ve stumbled across a plot to reignite the Shadow Wars all over again, and I think my soon-to-be stepdad is right in the middle of it.

Proving it, though, will be another question entirely…

Dear Reader

 

I launched my 20th book today! Huzzah! Here’s a picture of my kitten celebrating.

STORY SEEDS

I’m always looking for more story seeds, and when I find good ones I post them on my FB Author page. Sometimes they inspire stories, sometimes they just make me think, or reframe my ideas.

Today I found one about a 96-year-old holocaust survivor who is now the epic frontwoman for a death metal band.

What an amazing world we live in. I’ll start sharing these seeds with you, too, so if you get nothing else from my newsletter, at least you’ll—hopefully—learn something interesting and new in a bite-sized paragraph.

IN OTHER NEWS

Sticky Fingers 4 is live today! Thank you for the orders and support, I really appreciate it!

One of the stories is about the Nachthexen, a squadron of aviatrixes who took out thousands of Nazi targets in WWII flying old biplanes made of plywood and canvas.

This team of courageous pilots fought for their land and their loved ones—dead and alive—and helped turn the tide against the invading enemy. I loved doing the research, and I hope you’ll enjoy the story!

That’s it for today!

Hugs, and happy reading!

Cold Breath

Dear Readers

I hope you are doing well and enjoying your Friday!

Here in South Africa it’s a long weekend, and most families (religious or not) will be celebrating easter with eggs and chocolate bunnies.

I’m at my desk because I have a book to write, but I’ll definitely be joining in the fun tomorrow. This will mostly entail ensuring the health of my children by eating at least half of their chocolate.

Say it with me: Win/Win.

***

For those of you interested in my short stories, I am hard at work on my fourth Sticky Fingers collection.

So far I’ve written two of the twelve stories. The first was harrowing to research and difficult to write.

The second was an idea that popped into my head one night months ago and kept me up for hours. I couldn’t write it then because I was in the middle of my Blood Magic series, but now I’ve got the bones down and I think it’s a goodie.

Creepy, dark, and even though I got the words written, I find it is still under my skin.

It’s called ‘Cold Breath’ and here is the first line:

“I knew why I deserved to be haunted by them, but I didn’t understand why they, in particular, had chosen me.”
***

Some other ideas are also knocking, so I’m hoping to have them written really soon as the deadline is fast approaching (it’s on pre-order at Amazon and I live in fear of angering the Amazon gods). But deadline aside, I am really enjoying the change in pace and the short format.

Thank you again for your loyal support, I appreciate every one of you. I wouldn’t be able to afford to be an author if it weren’t for readers like you. So thank you for supporting my work! I don’t take it for granted.

Before I sign off, I have two 99c box set deals for you, if you’re interested.

Here they are:

This is the box set I have a book included in, and it’s finally ready to pre-order on Amazonfor only 99c

This is a list-aiming box set, which means we’re doing everything we can to hit the USA Today Bestseller list. We’ll need thousands of orders to accomplish this, so every sale counts. If you can spare the 99c YOU WILL BE REWARDED IN BOOK HEAVEN. Or you will find a $10 note in your pocket. Or something like that, but I’m sure something awesome will happen to you.

If you do pre-order the set (available on Amazon and most other retailers) please let me know so I can thank you personally! Here is the link: books2read.com/soulsandshadowsboxset

The other box set looks AMAZING. It’s a new collection by Nicole Grotepas and it’s doing really well so far and is in loads of Amazon category bestseller lists. If it looks like your cup of tea, I hope you’ll give it a try!

The Colossus Collection Box Set : A Space Opera Steampunk  Adventure (Books 1-4 + Bonus Material) for only 99c
Nicole Grotepas

Some think the City of Jade Spires is a utopia. It isn’t.

 

Holly Drake is in prison for defending herself from a murderer. That’s the kind of corruption thriving in the city where evidence is destroyed and the innocent go to jail.

But everything’s about to change.

 

Someone exonerates Holly and she walks free. She has no idea who. Or why. But they have a job for her: steal back the Eye of the Colossus, a priceless jewel. It’s about to be moved off-planet, and when that happens, the trail will go cold.

Out of prison with no other work on the horizon, the job is a gift. If only she knew how to pull off a heist. The clock is ticking. If she can assemble a team and pretend like she knows how to do this, maybe she can fake it long enough to do a job better suited for a master-thief.

Why Holly? Who’s pulling her strings? And just how far across the moon system will she have to go to finish the job?
This is Holly Drake. Someone tried to kill her once. She survived. Will she beat the odds once again?
The Eye of the Colossus features a snarky, strong, badass heroine on her way from the bottom of her game to the top. Grab your copy today!

★★★★★ “This was an excellent story, well-written and fast-paced.” A Top 500 Amazon reviewer

Hugs, and happy reading!

Ghost Apples

Dear Readers

Today I saw this marvelous thing on Facebook. They’re called Ghost Apples.

What happens is that the freezing rain coats rotting apples and then the fruit leaves behind this beautiful frozen shell. If you’d like to see the post on Facebook it’s here: Ghost Apples.

Readers often ask where I get my ideas from, but with a world as rich as ours, getting ideas is the easy part!

Thank you to the readers who responded to last week’s email. I received a few requests to describe my writing process so I’ll be working on that and hopefully sharing it soon. If there are any other topics you’d like me to discuss, please let me know!

You may have received the first chapter of my wizard detective novel The HighFire Crown this morning, courtesy of MailChimp. If you did, I hope you enjoyed it!

WHAT I’M WORKING ON

I’m currently halfway through writing a gritty urban fantasy novel with Colby R. Rice. I started the cover this week so I’ll have something to show you soon. It’s set in Johannesburg — again! Which always makes it interesting to write as most of my readers are in the US and UK. Hopefully, the story and action will translate smoothly and you won’t be confused by the sprinkling of South African words … plus, Colby is American, so there will be a slight American twang ( :

We’re aiming to finish the book by the end of the month, then the editors and proofers will have their turn. Can’t wait to share it with you!

I also can’t wait to get back to writing suspenseful, dark-humored short stories. I love crafting shorter fiction so I’m really looking forward to the next collection of Sticky Fingers up.

Of course, I’ll be sharing one or two with you as I progress, so watch this space if you’d like to pick up some NEW free short stories.

Dead Silence
K.G. Reuss
4.8 stars out of 5 (70 reviews) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Dead. Not Gone. Definitely not silent.

My name is Everly, and I’m haunted by the dead. Or maybe hunted is a better word since it seems the dead want to make me one of them. Luckily, I have Shadow on my side, the formidable, powerful being who’s been with me since the beginning. He never speaks. But I know he’s my protector, slaying the demons that get too close and saving me from whatever seeks to harm me, even myself.

Nothing is as it seems … not even Shadow.

My fear and destiny collide to bring me to the doorstep of a place I never dreamed possible. I won’t be alone. Shadow will be there. And so will they.

Dead Silence is Book 1 in The Everlasting Chronicles.

(Reader Discretion advised due to dark subject matter.)

I’ll be back in your inbox next Friday with a freebie. But for now I’m going to put my head down and get this book finished!

Did Raven Kane murder one of her clients?

GM AUDIO.jpg

Hello!

I hope you’ve had a good week so far!

I’ve got a bottle of bubbly in the fridge because I hit a milestone today … two million pages read! I’m thrilled and I only have you to thank.

But it’s not all champagne-drinking and swanning about over here. This week I’ve been preparing to dive into writing my new book, which I start today.

It’s the last full-length book I’ll write for a while as I’ll be focussing on shorter works this year. I’m really looking forward to getting lost in the story.

The kids are settled at school, Felix the kitten has entrenched himself as cutest member of the family, and I’m ready to get back into my writing schedule and make things happen. I hope you’ll join me for the ride!

PS. If there is anything you’d like me to write about in my newsletters, let me know! Are you interested in my writing process, or my publishing schedule for 2019? Or do you just want to see more kitten pictures?

PPS. If you think of yourself as a fan of my books, you may want to join our Superfan Facebook group. It’s a place where we can chat more often than a bi-monthly newsletter, and the conversation can go both ways. If you’re interested, I’ll see you there!

NEW RELEASE: ‘The Ember Isles’ Goes Live Today!

EMBER ISLES COVERVAULT

Hello!

 

I hope you’ve had a lovely break and an easy start to the year.

We’re back from a wonderful holiday at the Wild Coast and the kids started school yesterday. James enjoyed his first day in grade one!

I’m taking it slow — I promised myself a month off work in January after the grueling 6-books-in-6-months wizard challenge — so I’m catching up on emails and admin and taking a few courses to ease into what is sure to be an exciting, prolific year.

I’ll be doubling down on short stories this year, as I love writing them and the reviews have been good!

My Sticky Fingers readers email me often to ask when the next collection will be out, so I’m planning on publishing 3 more collections in 2019.

In the meantime, I wanted to let you know that Book 4 in my wizard detective series, The Ember Isles, is live today. 

It’s a fun, light-hearted, escapist adventure. If you read it, I’d love to know what you think!

That’s all till next week, when I’ll have some audiobook codes to hand out.

Thanks again for your support and I wish you all the best for 2019!

Our new kitten, Felix, had the best first Christmas ever. His favourite part was trying to knock the tree over, which delighted my children.

It’s steaming hot here in Johannesburg, with temperatures peaking at 34 degrees Celcius (93 degrees F) so we spent most of Christmas day in the pool with lilos and chilled MCC.

It was lovely to take the day off and spend time with my kids, and I hope you had a wonderful break, too. I also hope you enjoyed reading (or listening to) Dasher, if you got around to it!

And while everyone (including the kitten) is now recovering from lots of fun, I’m trying my best to finish this final wizard book before my deadline on the 31st of December.

Please keep your fingers crossed for me! It’s going to be a slog, but I’m determined to make it!


BOOKS

If you’re looking for something to read and you enjoy fantasy, there might be something here that appeals to you. I’m afraid I’m sharing this link a few days late, but I’ve just checked and most of the books listed are still 99c.

Also, my book Grey Magic is now available in audiobook format!
