New Release: From Canaan With Love

Image
Hi everyone.

Today’s returning guest on my blog is Melanie Dent who has just published a book written in collaboration with her Spirit Guide Canaan.

I thought it would be nice to catch up with Melanie and find out more about this book and the way in which it came together.

Hi Melanie, welcome back. I had heard a disturbing rumor that you had quit writing altogether so it’s good to know that’s not true.

MELANIE: Well it is and it isn’t. I got so sick of the Indie fiction thing, all that effort for little reward, never having the money to pay for promotion things and knowing that your books, which you spent hours researching and writing, are mired in the several million rankings on Amazon,  From Canaan with love is different; being able to work with my guide on something that renews me spiritually and is meant to be shared brings a sense of personal achievement which I imagine far surpasses being in the Amazon Top 100.

I don’t know a lot about Spiritualism or spirit guides. Can you give m…

Hollywood Hearsay 1: The Missing Baby Star

By Barbara Morgenroth



It’s 1933. America is in the Great Depression. Prohibition is still the law of the land.
When hard news reporter, Caro James, reveals the secret life of a politician in New York City, much to her dismay, The New York Sentinel newspaper sets out to teach her a lesson about the rules of journalism. They send her to Los Angles to write fluff pieces on the film industry.

The contact in Hollywood who is supposed to guide her for the week of punishment, is the handsome and unpredictable movie director, Sugar McLaughlin. Now, with a young, beautiful starlet missing for two weeks and in great danger, Caro and Sugar must find June Fowler before she is lost forever. When the one person who knows what happened to June is murdered, Caro and Sugar can’t help but think they’ve reached a dead end. As Sugar knows, every story has an Act III and Caro is in for the ride of her life as they race to find the starlet.

Goddess of Night: Book Review

Image
A war four-thousand years in the making.

In the mists of time, Lilith sealed her immortal lover away. Awakened, Samael has only one plan: revenge.

Linked to Samael and caught in the middle, Katelina watched as Lilith took both her best friend Sarah and a child vampire hostage. Now, it’s up to her and Jorick to get them back. Joined by a group more foe than friend, they search for the ancient vampiress, never dreaming the fight will come to them.

A horrific attack leaves Katelina’s hometown in ruins. Sightings say Sarah may have escaped, but with her mother in a coma, should Katelina go? Or should she stay? Will more destruction follow when Samael catches Lilith’s scent?

The final installment of the Amaranthine series raises the stakes. No longer the weak, terrified woman she was, Katelina will have to step up or lose everything she’s ever cared about.

Get a copy on Amazon or Smashwords.

My Review: What an amazing end to the Amaranthine saga. I’m just blown away by what Joleene Naylor…

Interview with Author Sharnel Williams

Image
Today, I'm pleased to introduce Sharnel Williams. She has been featured on this blog in the past, but since her original interview, she has greatly expanded her list of accomplishments. Sharnel's story has inspired many people and she is a role model to many women. I hope you will enjoy this interview.




Hi, Sharnel. Welcome back to Authors to Watch. Can you please tell us a little about yourself?

Born & raised in Newark, NJ, I’m a wife, mother, writer, radio host and entrepreneur.

I understand you are hosting a Women Empowerment Luncheon. How did you get the idea to host this event?

I knew it was time to tell my story. One day I posted on Facebook to be a part of someone's Women Empowerment Conference. I receive a couple of inboxes and they were telling me to have my own. Then the rest was history.

What types of events do you have planned as part of this event?

It would be 10 motivational speakers including myself. This is my first, so I’m going to keep it simple. I’m stil…

Matthew Mills

God is good. It’s the only truth Matthew Mills needs. But, pain is still pain. It has only been a week since his wife had her second miscarriage in the last three years. She has become a shell of who she was. Only his daughter Marcy is a light in his life.

Today, I have the pleasure of introducing Robert Eggleton, author of Rarity from the Hollow, which was our featured Book of the Day last week. Please be sure to stick around after the interview, as there will be an excerpt from the novel.

She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire. A Children’s Story. For Adults.
