Tour Kick Off: When Lucifer Met Calamity




Contemporary Romance/Comedy
Date Published: April 18, 2016


Lucifer - At eighteen months out of law school, six months on the job, and four weeks before his BAR exam, Luce has arrived. He’d been playing by other people’s rules all his life and now, poised on the brink of success, he will not let anyone stand in his way…especially not the junior-partner jerk at the office giving him and his assistant a hard time. On his way to give the creep a piece of his mind, he bumps into the infamous ‘Calamity Jones’…
Calamity – is tired of enduring her boss’s unwanted sexual innuendos.  When his fingers start to roam, Calam decides she’s had enough. It’s time to fight fire with fire.  So she devises an ingenious, if risky plan, to get Perkins off her back, keep her Job, and strike a blow for his numerous other victims around the office…only, things don’t go exactly as planned.
All Hell Breaks ‘Luce’ – After finding the loopy ingénue jack-knifed atop the archival files, Lucifer knows something is up. Calamity knows the jig is up. So, she comes clean. Turns out, they both have the same problem…Perkins. But, sparks fly when they decide to team up to bring down the boss. The Hitch? He’s a straight arrow…She’s a loose cannon. Can they work together to achieve a common goal?  Or will they both lose in the end?

Tour Kick Off: Decimation by @TichBrewster #giveaway




Young Adult Paranormal
Date Published: 3/29/2016


Armageddon has arrived and the kings of hell are out for Hannah’s blood.

Hannah is the only one that can destroy hell and save the world from destruction. She diligently trains with her father in preparation of her final battle with evil. The task of slaying demons in the few short months that she’s been a Devada has changed her — she’s no longer the scared, innocent girl she once was.

When she rescues a frightened little boy, she gets more than she bargained for. He is the host body for Liehijon and Liehijon is the key to finding Satan.







#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career? Yes, I do! This is something that I love to do but it is also something that I treat as a job. I set aside at least 30 hours a week for writing.


#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process? The hardest part was learning to separate work (writing) from family. Since I work from home, my work time can easily be interrupted. I had to learn to set boundaries and plan my writing time at times around family time.


#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family? Teresa Fuentez jumped into our writing careers together when we started writing the Royal Blood series together. We’ve been each other’s go-to for everything.


#4 – What is next for your writing? At the moment I have the fourth and last book planned out for the Angels & Demons series, three more in the Royal Blood series (co-authored with Teresa), a paranormal romance (co-authoring with a friend), as well as another rocker romance.


#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading? I love to read. I have several bookshelves in my room. At the moment I am reading Destruction by Sharon Bayliss.


DESCRIBE Your Book in 1 Tweet: One girl destined to save the world…three kings of hell out for her blood


This or That?

#1 - iPd or Mp3? Um…I actually don’t have either. I do use Amazon Music.

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla? Definitely chocolate.

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries? Fries, I can eat them on the go.

#4 – Comedy or Drama? I like both

#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks? Nicholas Sparks. I haven’t read any books by Danielle Steel

#6 – Fantasy or Reality? Fantasy, hands down

#7 – Call or Text? Text. I’m an awkward talker

#8 – Public School or Home School? I actually homeschooled 4 of our 5 children for a while. When I decided to write full-time I put them in public school.

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate Coffee hands down

#10 – eBook or Paperback? Though I do have a Kindle and a Nook I LOVE, and prefer, hardback and paperback.

She didn't start writing until middle school, after being inspired by her best friend's short stories. "Genny's stories weren't just great but they inspired me to put my pen and paper to good use." Tich never thought of publishing her works until working with Teresa on the Royal Blood series.

Tour Kick Off: An Affair With Danger by @RobinStorey1




Romantic Suspense
Date Published: January 8, 2016


Two minutes.

That’s all it takes for corporate lawyer Will McPherson to be held up in an armed robbery and for his life to change in ways he’d never dreamed of.
When Will goes to court to give evidence, he meets the perpetrator’s girlfriend Frankie Slater and is instantly smitten.  But feisty, straight-talking Frankie has her own problems, not least of which is her violent boyfriend Eddie.
When Eddie finds out about their liaison, it puts both their lives in danger, and their love becomes a matter of life or death.




#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Definitely. I have recently transitioned from part-time to full-time indie author and I’m loving it. Being an indie author is definitely a full-time occupation, as you need to find time for marketing and promotion as well as writing.


#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

Believe it or not, it was the title. The writing of An Affair With Danger flowed fairly easily, as the characters and the plot had been rattling around inside my head for quite some time before I started, but I couldn’t think of an appropriate original title that hadn’t already been used several times for other books. Then An Affair With Danger finally sprang to mind and it was the one!

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

My critique partner Pam, who gave me honest and constructive criticism as I was writing and my beta readers, who read the finished novel and gave me useful feedback. Objective  feedback is so important, because you can’t see the flaws yourself.

#4 – What is next for your writing?

I’m writing another noir novel with a fantasy element in it, as it incorporates time travel. It’s about a woman who travels back in time to undo a crime she committed.


#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

For sure – I’m lost if I don’t have a book to read, sometimes more than one at a time. I believe that reading a wide range of books is one of the most effective ways to improve your writing – as well as actually writing!  At the moment I’m reading a noir novel called Bury Me Deep by Megan Abbott, about three women living in the 1930s. I love to read books set in another era – you really feel as if you’re escaping to another world.


DESCRIBE Your Book in 1 Tweet: Romance with a liberal dose of grit and suspense.


This or That?

#1 - iPd or Mp3?

iPd.

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla?

Chocolate. A necessary addiction for writers.

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries?

Mashed potato – great comfort food!

#4 – Comedy or Drama?
Comedy – that’s my natural bent. Even when I’m writing drama, I can always find the comedy.


#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks?

I haven’t read either so I can’t give an opinion, except to say I’m not a fan of the traditional HEA romance. That’s my dark side coming to the fore.

#6 – Fantasy or Reality?

Difficult – I like to incorporate both in my novels and short stories.

#7 – Call or Text?

Text – though if I want to get something sorted immediately, I call.

#8 – Public School or Home School?

Public. My three children (now adults) all went to public schools  - I would have had a nervous breakdown trying to home school them.

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate

Coffee, though sometimes I combine them by having a mocha.

#10 – eBook or Paperback?


e-Book – I love travelling and my Kindle is so handy for that. I will be taking it in my backpack when I do the Camino Frances pilgrimage in September. But I do love paperbacks as well.



Robin Storey is an indie author who lives on the picturesque Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. Her three previous books are How Not To Commit Murder, Perfect Sex and Comedy Shorts. An Affair With Danger, a romantic suspense novella, is a departure from her usual comedy writing style, but the characters were creating a commotion in her head and refused to go away until she’d put them in a book.
Robin is a certified book nerd and also enjoys chilling out at the beach and hiking. She is preparing to undertake the Camino Frances pilgrimage in September this year – plenty of time for mulling over new plots. She is working on her next novel, a romantic comedy.

Release Blitz: When Lucifer Met Calamity by D. Alyce Domain #excerpt



Contemporary Romance/Comedy
Date Published: April 18, 2016

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Lucifer - At eighteen months out of law school, six months on the job, and four weeks before his BAR exam, Luce has arrived. He’d been playing by other people’s rules all his life and now, poised on the brink of success, he will not let anyone stand in his way…especially not the junior-partner jerk at the office giving him and his assistant a hard time. On his way to give the creep a piece of his mind, he bumps into the infamous ‘Calamity Jones’…

Calamity – is tired of enduring her boss’s unwanted sexual innuendos.  When his fingers start to roam, Calam decides she’s had enough. It’s time to fight fire with fire.  So she devises an ingenious, if risky plan, to get Perkins off her back, keep her Job, and strike a blow for his numerous other victims around the office…only, things don’t go exactly as planned.

All Hell Breaks ‘Luce’ – After finding the loopy ingénue jack-knifed atop the archival files, Lucifer knows something is up. Calamity knows the jig is up. So, she comes clean. Turns out, they both have the same problem…Perkins. But, sparks fly when they decide to team up to bring down the boss. The Hitch? He’s a straight arrow…She’s a loose cannon. Can they work together to achieve a common goal?  Or will they both lose in the end?



EXCERPT

Calam awoke with a headache and a confused void where her mind used to be.  Propping herself up on her elbows, she squinted in the morning light as she eyeballed her surroundings.  After a full minute and several pan-scans of the room Calam hunched her shoulders.  She had no clue where she was.  Geez, was it possible to be hung-over without actually getting drunk the night before?  The question was second only to her wild curiosity as to whose bed she occupied.  Good Lawd, had she been roofied or what?  A quick glance to her chest.  Nope.  She still had her clothes on…or someone’s clothes, anyway.  Something furry moved against her leg, and she jerked away and nearly screamed…until she heard an annoyed meow.  Sasha stretched in a deep yawn at the foot of the bed.

Sasha…Luce’s pervy pet.  Her mind cranked back up like a long-dead stalled car.  She was in Luce’s apartment, in his palatial king-sized bed, wearing his spice-scented t-shirt that dangled down around her knees when she eventually stumbled from the bed onto her feet.  Luce, ever the gentleman, slept on the convertible couch in the front room.  Had Calamity been in the exact same position but under different circumstances, she’d be ecstatic.  But, her impending arrest cast a wee pall over her euphoria.  Still, she preened with wicked satisfaction at having spent the night in his bedroom...Satan’s Lair, she dubbed, as an impish smile twitched at her lips.  Hmm, might as well have a quick lookie-loo…the chance may not arise again, she reasoned.

Luce’s private domain dripped with personality as compared to the more Spartan décor of the rest of his apartment.  Several framed family snapshots littered the nightstand along with a cordless telephone and touch sensitive lamp, which shockingly emitted a warm crimson glow when she brushed it with her fingertips.  Two impressionistic prints adorned the walls.  Each depicted vague anthropomorphic forms cavorting about against a pastel-blended background.  They reminded her of something naughty she once glimpsed when she’d accidentally flipped to the Spice Channel on her pay-per-view.

The corner off the edge of the bed housed a dark mahogany desk topped with a matching bookshelf that ran up the wall.  The books she discovered beneath one of the pillows and under the edge of the bed outed Luce as a late-night reader.  Hmm, The Count of Monte Cristo.  He likes the classics.  Her eyes bucked as she skimmed across Master: An Erotic Novel of the Count of Monte Cristo riding shotgun next to Dumas’ version.  Likewise, she spied Phantom of the Opera paired with its erotic twin.  Skimming further…Pride, Prejudice and Zombies?  The titles were endless.  Fascinated, she pulled Robin Hood: Unmasqued After Dark from the shelf and flipped through the pages.  Good night!  Is this what he reads?!  Classic literature corrupted as modern erotica and horror tales?  The thought curled her toes.  So, Lucifer wasn’t quite the choir boy he pretended.  There might be hope for them yet, she mused. 

         Shaking off her fantasies, Calamity put the book down and ran a hand through her hair and grimaced.  It had, of course, gone into kinky snarls during the night.  There wasn’t time for a wash and press even if she had a hot-comb or flat iron with her, which she didn’t.  She’d have to French braid it if she didn’t want to mirror Leo the Lion when she took her mug shot.  First things first, though.  She padded to the living room on bare feet to sneak a peek at the object of her affection.

         He lay atop the covers, one solid sinewy arm flung out over the empty side of the bed while the other was bent at the elbow and pillowed behind his head.  His torso was a study in Italian sculpture.  Smooth tawny-gold chest as broad as the Atlantic tapered downward into a rippling six-pack of muscles.  Her gaze wondered lower.  The suggestive spiral of coarse dark hairs disappeared beneath the drawstring pajama bottoms.  Oy!  Calam stepped closer so that she cast the sunlight from the window in a shadow over his face.  Lashes like paint-brush bristles fluttered open.  Curious inky slits regarded her…with groggy interest, she noted.

         “Yeah, I’m not a morning person either.”  She admitted.

         “Hmmm, come ‘ere.”

         Before she could respond, his hand shot out from behind his head and Calamity found herself sprawled torso to torso atop him, enveloped in a loose embrace.  She popped herself up on her elbows to spy two intense pools of ink impaling her…unable to resist, her gaze drifted downward to his mouth.

         “Did you sleep well?”  His voice reverberated deeper than his usual baritone.          

         Lusty thoughts a’jumble in her brain, Calamity could only nod.  Have mercy!  He might think her a presumptuous tart but at the moment, the sensual lure of his lips was too powerful to ignore.  Calam shimmed up to close the distance between them before she lost her nerve.  His bottomless-pit black orbs stalked her, seeming to guess her intent…but he made no move to help or to hinder.  So she brushed his mouth with a light, lingering kiss, giving him the choice to put an end to it if he wanted.

         A deep rumble in his chest vibrated through her, stoking the fires of her confidence.  She smiled against his mouth when she felt his lips part, inviting her in.  Encouraged, Calam deepened the kiss.  For the sake of balance, she flattened her palms on either side of his head.

         Meanwhile, Luce lost a hand in the kinky tufts of her hair.  The other roamed up and down her t-shirted back.  Heaven help him, but her small warm form felt sinful atop his body.  The knowledge that she wore his shirt, and judging by her simmering body heat, nothing underneath, intrigued him all the more.  The soft feminine feel of her ignited his lower regions and sent them into a slow burn.  He derived an almost perverse pleasure from letting her set the pace of their interlude.  That this woman, whom he out-weighed by at least a hundred pounds, could produce such a quicksilver reaction in him with a chaste little smooch amazed him, hooked him, cementing his fascination with her.

         She caught his lower lip between her teeth, teasing at first but then with purpose, she inched away…upward, pulling him along for the ride.  He knew what she wanted and complied, rising to follow her into a sitting position.  Her rear slid snugly into his lap.  Her bent knees rested on either side of his hips, while her hands crept around his neck.

         Unable to curb his appetite for her, Luce slid his hands down to her compact yet delectably curved bottom, tilting her closer, molding her against his body.  He wanted her to feel him…see her expression, gauge her reaction to the telltale––He felt her tense, and chuckled as she broke off their playful-turned-explosive kiss.  She squirmed against his blossoming ‘affection’.  Ah hell…he grimaced as a pleasurable pain ripped through him.

         “Shorty, uh...” He pulled back a ways.  Inky black eyes met her chocolate brown orbs… checking for approval or revulsion.  She broke off first.

         “I only meant to kiss you.”  She explained in a squeaky voice strangled with… embarrassment, he guessed.  “I’m…eh, sorry.”

         “Don’t be.  I’m not.”  Luce grinned despite himself.  Damn, did the woman know how adorable she was?  “Although, it’s probably better if you get up now.”

         “Oh!  Of course, my bad.”  She clumsily disentangled herself from him and got off the bed.  He watched her meander over to the kitchen, fidgety, with his t-shirt dangling teasingly off one shoulder.

         “I could fix us something to eat while you take a shower?  I mean, if you don’t mind my invading your kitchen.”

         Luce stood, heading toward the bedroom.  A cold shower, he thought.  “Yeah, sure, make yourself at home.”

Tour Kick Off: The Proving by @kenbrosky




YA Sci-Fi
Date Published1/5/2016


It's been 133 years since the Specters invaded Earth. Like ghosts they haunt the planet, devouring anyone foolish enough to venture outside the last remaining protected cities. For some, venturing out isn't a choice--it's a necessary evil to prove yourself to your clan as you come of age.
But when a team of ambitious youth—New Adults—undertakes a mission deep in Specter territory, they discover a terrible secret. Everything they've learned may be wrong ... and Earth is in grave danger.






#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Yes! I mean, I “see” it as a career, but I don’t make oodles of money. So maybe it’s one of those careers where you have to get something else out of it besides money. Oh! Fan mail is good. Fan mail feels like money. Wait: what if authors created a new currency of fan mail that they could use in bookstores? That would be so awesome.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

Definitely the second draft. Oh, sweet baby Jesus how I hate the second draft. But I also kind of love it, so we have this really frightening relationship. The second draft is where I try to insert all of the stuff I thought about AFTER I finished the first draft. Usually, these are details and character arcs that need to exist, but I don’t know where. It kinda drives me nuts. But when I finish a particular chapter, it feels so much better. It’s like doing laundry: it’s a chore, but then you smell good for another week.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

My partner, Dagny, has always been my personal editor. She goes through and takes out all the awful stuff and helps me hone my skills. No, I mean skillz. There we go.

#4 – What is next for your writing?

I’m going to finish out this series, and then I’m going to maybe do a fantasy series or a mystery series. I feel like both would be really, really fun. I’m already writing one and enjoying myself immensely.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading A Gathering of Shadows. I’m also reading a non-fiction book titled Dynasty. I’ve been re-reading Generation X comics because I find them incredibly fun!
