New and Upcoming Books

Friends Unlikely (Young Adult,Ebook @ Amira Press )
By Susan Smith Alvis

Five teenagers experience life's struggles when they discover one of their own is HIV Positive, while coming to terms with another friend’s Methamphetamine addiction. Through it all, they support one another and even though they’re from various backgrounds and cultures, they’re forever bound together by an unconditional love.

Heaving Bosoms (Now in Print @ Cerridwen, Amazon )
By Ashlyn Chase

What do tattooed butts, the Mafia and a medical student have in common? Tonia Fuller! Tonia, a blonde bombshell with a bust to make a Barbie doll weep, is a klutz. Wearing four-inch spike heels and already top-heavy, her center of gravity is elusive. When hunky medical student Raphael Beauchamp comes to her rescue twice, he thinks he knows why Tonia's falling. It's those ridiculous designer stilettos.

After Tonia's tumble down some stairs results in a nasty concussion and she has no one to stay with her, Raphael opts to look after this headstrong beauty. Raphael discovers that Tonia's the ex-wife of a Las Vegas Mafia don. She has half an offshore bank account number tattooed on her butt and someone's after her. A normal person would don a pair of running shoes and get the hell out of Boston. But it's too late for Raphael. Tonia's not the only one who's been falling.

The Undead Next Door (Love at Stake, Book 4)

Three signs that something is very different with your mew man:
1. He sleeps all day . . . which would be annoying except he's so attentive at night.
2. He's attacked by sword-wielding assailants, yet insists he can handle it on his own.
3. He never seems to age.

Heather Westfield has always lived a quiet life, but that all changes when she helps a very handsome, very mysterious stranger. There's something not quite right about Jean-Luc, but still, she's never been with a man so charming, so attractive . . . so wonderful. Now if only a murderous villain wasn't after them, they might get their happily-ever-after.

Demon Hunters, Inc.: See No Evil (eBook Changeling)
By Michele Bardsley

Four demons imprisoned for their sins. Let them go and chaos begins. Each has a gift you must gain. Only then will you break evil’s chain.
Angelica Mortis, the daughter of the legendary Maggie Mortis and the half-demon Raphael, is all grown-up. Angel owns and operates Demon Hunters, Inc. with her best friend Graddie. Business isn’t exactly bustling, but for the Mortis family, hunting demons isn’t just a job -- it’s a life-long calling.
An anonymous gift arrives at the office: a statue of four monkeys representing see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, and do no evil. A cryptic poem warns them a very dangerous game is about to be played and the prize is a biggie: Ruling the four planes of existence.

Hi Dannette!

I hope you're well. A little birdie told me you had posted my NEW PAPERBACK on your site! Thank you so much!!!

I'm SO excited, but I'm sort of at a loss as to how to promote it to paper readers! LOL. I've been so e-book focused that I'm just asking people to talk it up to their local bookstores and hopefully more will order it if the fans start a buzz.

I want to be one of those cult classics that gathers fans through word of mouth like Buffy, Clerks and other pop culture references.
