Summer romance by Mia Hoddell–free

I’ve been so sick this last couple weeks, and in a fog because of it, I wanted to make sure not to miss this. Miss Mia Hoddel has a brand new YA romance out and it’s FREEEE this week. Here’s a little more about it:

Summer Demons

by Mia Hoddell

Genre: YA Romance

Release Date: 26th February 2014

Length: Novella

Blurb:

Jenna Shaw ran away to escape her past. In fact, she jumped on a plane and flew to Portugal to try and forget it. However, it turns out leaving everything behind isn’t as easy as it sounds.

She thought she could move on and break free of her fears—that if she had some space the pain would stop. But as memories resurface due to an ill-timed joke, the past crashes into her present once more and she didn’t see it coming.

Jenna’s plans for normality are derailed by the charismatic Ethan Brooks. She sees him as an annoyance; he sees her as a challenge. But as he tries every trick known to him to impress her, they only serve to push her further away. He’s never faced this problem before and Ethan has to work harder than he ever has if he wants to win over and help his mysterious girl.

Excerpt
She saw red. Seeping into the crystal clear water it spread, bleeding and merging as the ripples around her pushed it closer towards her feet. The deep crimson only
grew darker as it surrounded her.
She could feel her breathing quicken, coming in short, sharp rasps as she started to panic. Her chest constricted, an unbearable pressure tightening like a boa constrictor refusing to release her from its clutches. Her throat felt dry, her increased breathing doing nothing to help the situation as she forced herself to swallow in the hope of dislodging the lump that had formed there.
This isn’t happening. This isn’t real. I came here to escape this, she told herself repeatedly as she laid there, her turquoise bikini embellished with golden sequins shining in the sun as her back tanned slowly. Bringing up an arm to adjust her chestnut-brown hair that was dangling in the water, she tried to pull away before the colour reached her and tainted the beautiful locks. The damage done
would be irreparable if it touched her.
Moving it just in time, she threw it over her shoulder so it rested between her shoulder blades, the damp tips feeling nice as they cooled her back by trailing droplets of water down either side. She tried not to flinch as her gaze returned to the bloodied water that lapped at the li-lo beneath her chin. With every wave it seemed to grow closer, making its way further up the yellow plastic to try and
touch her. The tapping that was normally so soothing tormented her now, like a crowd clapping and cheering her sanity on as it fled for safety.
Rather than listen to the logical side of her brain, her body had other ideas. Shuffling back, she put a bigger distance between her face and the abnormal pool beneath her. As her toes dipped into the cool water behind her though, she flinched, automatically drawing herself up so that no part of her body was near the edge. No matter how disgusted she was, she couldn’t stop staring; her eyes
were hypnotised by the gentle movements that swirled the colour into the water even more. The red had become so thick that not one tile beneath the surface was visible.
The more she stared, the more she remembered.
The more she remembered, the more she was pulled into her memory.
It might not have been real at that moment in time, but it had been, and Jenna was once again pulled into the unbearable memory.

Brandy Nacole: Our fascination with paranormal creatures.

afternoonteatag

*Minion Juli pulls drapes. Pauses. Peers out window*: Does the ground in the garden seem to be moving to you?

*Night Mistress comes to her side and looks* “I don’t see anything moving.”

Juli: I think it is. Should we call an exterminator? We don’t want the rats scaring off our next guest.

Night Mistress: I’m sure she can handle it.

Juli: You could be right. She does seem okay with things most people consider strange. (Aside: Like you)

Night Mistress: “What was that?”

Juli *opening the door*: Nothing. Just rehearsing what I’ll say to welcome our next guest.
Night Mistress: Don’t mind her, Brandy, and thank you for coming! Folks, Brandy Nacole is a New Adult author of paranormal novels.

Juli: Brandy’s come to tell us why she loves paranormal creatures so much (clearly she’s never had the misfortune to meet my employer).

Night Mistress: What was that?

Juli: Do you need to get your hearing checked, Mistress?

Night Mistress: I don’t think so. Brandy, dear. Come in, don’t mind my minion. She’s going on unemployment soon. Would you like some tea?

Brandy Nacole: Thank you, Mistress. I’d love some.

Night Mistress: Now tell us about these lovely creatur–er friends of yours, won’t you?

Paranormal creatures have been the center of many conversations throughout history.  Parents who try and keep their children from doing something dangerous or to keep them in line.  Friends scaring each other around the campfire.  Local townsfolk telling the local myths to tourists around a steaming cup of coffee.

Paranormal creatures have also been the center point for many movies and television shows.  When most people think of the paranormal they think it will be scary and in some cases corny, but that is not always the case.  Many paranormal shows and movies have been made for the more family oriented setting: Casper the Friendly Ghost, The Munsters, Hocus Pocus, and many more.

But the question many ask, which paranormal creature is the most popular?

For the past few years many believed it to be the vampire, others ghosts and demons.  But when you take away the worldwide range and focus locally, it will be the local legends at the top of the list, not majority vote.  There are a few post found about the top ten in paranormal, but they are all solely based on opinion or popularity over decades.

I like many different paranormal creatures and for different reasons.  They’re all awesome in their own way.  How awesome would it be to run through a forest so fast your nothing but a blur, while also managing to miss every tree in your path?  Or how about throwing someone across the room when they won’t quit running their mouths?  I would say pretty darn awesome!

Uniquely UnwelcomeMy interest in all paranormal creatures is what led me to write my first published novel, Uniquely Unwelcome.  The main character, Racquel, is a hybrid of four different Shadow lines: Witch, Vampire, Lycan, and Shifter.  The problem with Racquel is, she’s an outcast among the other pure-blood Shadows in the Shadow World.

After the publication of Blood Burdens, the second book in the Shadow World series, I wrote Broken FaithBroken Faith is another series with a mixture of different paranormal creatures.  Kayson is a fallen angel out to prove everyone wrong.  Sabrina is a vampire, a half-blood created from the original blood children, whose only goal is to stay hidden and survive.  Then there’s Falon, Alpha of the Hell hounds, destroyer of the blood children.  And when these three world’s collide, no one may be safe.

 
What is your favorite paranormal creature?  Vampire?  Werewolf?  Ghosts?  Bigfoot?
Night Mistress: Oh, I’d have to say….all of the above! Bigfoot’s a bit hard on the linoleum but he’s welcome at our castle anytime. How about you, folks? Do you have a preference in your favorite paranormal creatures to share with our guest? Meanwhile, let’s have Brandy tell us a little more about her books.

Racquel is unique. The bloodlines of four of the most powerful beings in the Shadow World are intertwined within her DNA.  She has never craved attention. She just wants to be able to live as normal life as she can. But she’s about to find that even though she’s uniquely unwelcome wherever she goes, her abilities also make her the best chance the Shadow World has to stop a threat to all the Shadow races.
Once arriving home, Racquel finds that greater evils exist and that the person she cares for most in this world, her half-sister Addie, has been kidnapped along with other Shadow World beings.  Racquel finds herself facing horrible odds with those who would rather see her dead than alive.

As her journey continues, Racquel learns more about herself, what she is capable of, and that not every being looks at her as an abomination.  Coy, a human captive that Racquel saves from the Vampires, starts showing kindness toward her.  Racquel tries putting distance between her and the human boy but as they spend more time together it becomes harder and harder for Racquel to fight the affection she wants and needs.

But will Coy’s friendship and her new found discoveries be enough to help Racquel unravel the strangest mystery that has ever plagued the Shadow World?

Blood Burdens:

As someone with four Shadow bloodlines, Racquel is uniquely unwelcome even among her fellow werewolves, shape-shifters, vampires, and witches. Growing up, she was bullied and tormented for being a “hybrid,” a condition frowned upon by Shadow society. After saving her sister and a number of other kidnapped Shadows from a diabolical plot to create a Shadow army, many have found a new respect for Racquel, but she is far from accepted in Shadow society, and the evil is far from over. To complicate matters, Racquel now finds herself torn between two brothers. Coy is caring and has helped Racquel through her struggles, and Micah, who Racquel has only met once but who is somehow, having dream conversations with him. Racquel becomes torn between following her heart while breaking it at the same time. In the second installment of the Shadow World series, Racquel and her sister Addie face off with the Shadow leaders against a threat that could bring the world to its knees. Power will be pushed to its limit, hearts will be broken, and some will pay the ultimate price as Racquel and her group of Shadows fight against an ancient evil that is determined to make the earth bleed and Racquel with it.

Broken Faith:

Kayson is a Fallen Angel who has spent decades running from the Hell Hounds while searching for something that no one else believes can be so, not even God.  Kayson is determined to find a Blood Child.  But when a hound finds Kayson first, he is sure his end has come.

Falon, Alpha of the Hell Hounds, destroyer of the blood children, and devoted believer in his master’s plan, is bound and determined to drag Kayson back to Hell with him. 

Sabrina is a Vampire, a half-breed created from one of Lucifer’s original blood children.  After years of hiding, Sabrina’s fate changes when she finds Kayson barely alive. Against her instincts, Sabrina saves him.  Now she and Kayson are both marked by the Hell Hounds.

Emma is an ordinary human, whose only problem is making ends meet, and getting over the hurt caused by her untrustworthy brother.  Her everyday problems become supernatural ones when she finds Kayson and Sabrina hiding in her parent’s backyard shed.

Kayson, Sabrina and Emma are unlikely allies, thrown together by chance to fight against the most powerful creatures of the underworld in order to follow their world-changing quest.  But will the broken faith of one break the faith of all?

“Night Mistress sighs* What now?

Juli: lobsterColorpoffcopy by Webmistress' husbandI really think something’s coming up out of the ground.

Night Mistress: What– *eyes go wide* OMG, Doctor Franken-Helsing. It’s impossible!

No library’s complete without a ghostly librarian–Halloween with S.G. Rogers

afternoonteatag

*Shutters rattle. Mistress eyes the windows* What is that?

*Minion scurries to lock them down* Sorry, Night Mistress. The wind’s kicking up a bit out there. It must be the horses.

Horses?

From the carriage. Remember? You invited a few famous guests.

*Mistress checks guest list* Ah, yes, Minna and Mr. Rhule. They’ve come good. *Mistress opens door* Hello, dear S.G.! it’s good to see you again. Mr. Rhule, always a pleasure. love your outfit, what is that the Lecter collection? It’s fabulous.

Rhule: Why thank you, my dear. Actually, it’s from the Poe collection.

*Mistress taps nails* It’s wonderful. I have to get his number from you before you leave, don’t let me forget. Folks, author S.G. Rogers has come for a spooky show-and-tell and a spot of tea. Welcome, S.G.!

610px-Jack-o'-Lantern_2003-10-31S.G.: Thank you for having me, Mistress! Today I brought an excerpt from my romantic fantasy novella, Minna & the Valentine. In the story, Minna won’t acknowledge her magical powers because her beloved father hates wizards. Then handsome Evan Valentine appears to ask her help in closing a rift in the universe. In the following scene, Evan gives her a tour of the castle where he lives with his wizard mentor. To her surprise, the castle residents are not always alive…

The ScreamExcerpt:

Upon entering the library, Minna covered her open mouth with her hands. The collection of books spread out before her was larger than any library she’d ever seen before. Sumptuous leather bindings stretched on as far as the eye could see—but the books were not the only impressive feature. Huge paintings graced the walls, and freestanding sculptures lent the library the feel of a museum, although several reading corners allowed for a cozier experience.

“Absolutely amazing,” she said finally. “How do you find anything?”

“Can I help you, Miss?”

A ghostly figure appeared directly in front of Minna. Startled, she reached for Evan’s hand.

“Hello, Mr. Rhule,” Evan said. “Allow me to introduce Minna Westerfield. Minna, this is our librarian, Mr. Rhule.”

“But he’s…he’s…”

“Deader than a proverbial doornail,” Mr. Rhule said. “I’m not offended by the observation, I can assure you. It comes as a shock to me daily.”

Rendered speechless, Minna stared at the elderly gentleman, clad in a suit and tie fashionable decades prior.

“Mr. Rhule was a longtime employee who decided to stay on after he died,” Evan explained. “We’d be lost without him.”

“I had no relatives I wanted to join in the hereafter, you understand,” Mr. Rhule said. “Work always was my life. It has now become my death, too.”

Minna tried to remember her manners. “It’s very nice to meet you.”

“I’m just giving Minna the tour,” Evan said. “We’ll see you later, Mr. Rhule.”

“I’ll be here.” When the ghost laughed, the vibrations made Minna shudder.

Scroll ding

Night Mistress: I can see where a ghostly librarian would be very disconcerting…to the uninitiated.

S.G.: It would take some getting used to. *sips tea* Mmm…I taste almonds. How very peculiar.

Night Mistress: No, no almonds. We used only honey, some rosehips and plain old Camellia sinensis…..

*Juli takes S.G. Aside* I’m not sure about her recipe. She keeps saying she didn’t add anything weird to the tea but…well, I wouldn’t drink anymore if I were you.

Mistress: What?

*Juli tries her best to look innocent* Just warning S.G. About that thing in the graveyard.

Mistress: Oh, yes. That. *snort* I haven’t been able to track it down yet. Never fear, my dear, S.G. I won’t let it get you, but yes, she’s right. You might not want to dally on your way back to your carriage.

Rhue: Is it something to worry about?

Mistress *sprinkles crushed bay leaves around S.G.. Minna, and Rhue* There. Now,  I don’t think you’ll have any trouble on your trip home. *hugs* Have a happy Halloween, my dears!

deadlytolove500The world is dangerous – but love will kill you.

Little did Serena Jackson know that one simple, flirty remark to an anonymous guy online would lead to her world being changed forever.

She doesn’t know him, but inexplicably, is drawn. She knows it is wrong but she agrees to meet.

His real name is Kai. He is beautiful. And immediately Serena feels herself blindly falling for him even though she senses a lie. She knows he is hiding something and it terrifies her.

What she doesn’t realise is that her entire life has been built on secrets and lies. The people she loved left her in the dark for a reason.

She trusted them. She trusts Kai. But as he pulls her straight into the heart of the danger the lies and deadly secrets are revealed. They overwhelm her, and the person she once was no longer exists as she is thrown into a ruthless world of elemental forces. The price of truth is her life—and now the world wants her dead.

Praise:

“I couldn’t put it down. So I finished it last night and all I can say is WOW! This book was amazing and different.” Brianna (Book Blogger)

I loved how the author took a different approach to writing a love story in modern times with the paranormal element present. I thought it was absolutely wonderful and refreshing. Marvelous!” Kathy H (Amazon Reviewer)

“I will admit I scoffed at the way it started but in the end I had fallen in love with this story…completely untraditional it was a very original idea, not to mention modern. This story had such a good plot and the story structure was sound.” Kacii – The Kooky Bookworm (Book Blogger)

 

Excerpt:

As he spoke I checked out the surroundings. It was just starting to get dark outside but I could still see the black outlines of the trees that surrounded us on either side of the narrow road.

“Why are we in a forest?” I asked, a slight hint of fear creeping into my voice as I was unnerved by the fact that we were in a place where Elementals were most likely to inhabit.

“Because the house is located in the forest. Don’t worry we’ll be safe there, I’ve hardly had any Elemental sightings when I’ve stayed here,” he said, but something about it didn’t sound very encouraging.

“And how often do you stay here?” I said slowly, my tone wary.

“Whenever I’m in the area.” His avoidance of a definite answer unnerved me even more as I knew what he was going on to say.

“I have to say, that isn’t very often, but the four times I’ve been here since buying the place have been peacefully silent.”

I was dumbfounded by his statement and my eyes were wide in shock as I watched him to see if he was joking. I saw nothing that led me to believe that or to make me doubt his words though.

“You’ve only been here four times?! How do you know this is a safe place then? It could be crawling with Elementals for all you know.”

He laughed at my sudden outburst of panic.

 

About the Author

Mia Hoddell lives in the UK with her family and two cats. She spends most of her time writing or reading and loves anything paranormal. Mia always had a love of writing but never reading. She was more interested in sports and hated sitting still – despite getting three poems published before the age of sixteen. Finally though, she found some novels that captured her interest and developed a love of reading which is now one of her favourite hobbies.

Mia began with poems before moving on to short stories. Although she enjoyed this, Mia found she had too much to tell with too little space, so later on she created her first series ‘The Wanderer Trilogy’ and from there other ideas have emerged. With a total of nine books planned at this moment, she is busy working on her second series ‘Elemental Killers’ before moving onto the next idea on her ever growing list.

Taming a demon fairy–with fantasy author Linda Hamonou

I recently met author Linda Hamonou during the Indie Block Party and I found her to be very interest. She writes fantasy when she’s not working out the secrets of the universe. ;) I found that intriguing and so I thought I’d ask her to come chat with us for a little bit. Please welcome Linda to our little home!

Thanks for being here, Linda, why don’t you start by telling my readers a little about yourself?

 

Author Linda Hamonou

Author Linda Hamonou

Linda: Hamonou: Hello Juli, I’m happy to be here today. Something about me… hum… I travel a lot, and I write a lot too. I like to discover and learn new things all the time.

We love discovering new things around here too. I think you’ll fit in well with us! ;) What can you share about your Demon Soul books with our readers who may not be familiar with it?

 

Linda: Demon Soul started from a love story, I had an idea about a love between a human and a demon turning bad when the demons decided to still the boy’s soul. Brownie, the human girl is then left alone to fight them as Yue’s memory is vanishing.

From there the story shift around Brownie’s life and how she is going to overcome the loss of her love, or trying to find it back. She becomes a witch and with magic, anything can happen even the unpredictable.

By what authors would you say you are influenced?

 

Linda: I read a lot and I like old book the best. I would say I’m influenced by Jane Austen and Frank Herbert the most. Even if I write fantasy, I want to show a possibility for the events to happen, a bit of mixing magic and science and of course never forget love.

A good mixture for a story, to be sure! :) Any interesting stories to share about your road to publication?

Linda: Not really. I discovered Createspace through NaNoWriMo and jumped on the idea that I could be doing everything myself and still have people I didn’t know reading my stories. That’s about it. When you write a lot, it’s difficult for your friends to keep on reading your novels. They just get tired of you, lol.

A writer must keep writing! I know what you mean. What’s next for you now that Demon and Fairy is out?

Linda: Well I have three finished drafts that need to be edited and I’m still working on my unfinished vampire story. And of course I need to write the sequel of Demon World (which is the sequel of Demon and Fairy). It’s too bad that I can write faster than I edit. Too many ideas, too little time.

If you weren’t a writer, what career might you have pursued instead?

 

Linda: That’s a funny question. Officially I’m not a writer, I’m a physicist, I have a PhD in atomic and molecular physics and I do research on interaction laser-molecule at the university. I like the possibility of having two carrier at the same time but they are both really time consuming and it takes a lot of planning to get things done.

 

Oh, cool! What kind of books do you like to read for pleasure?

Linda: I read almost anything my hands can get on but mostly detective stories, love stories and fantasy. I’m afraid about science fiction because so many people get the science wrong and that stops me from fully enjoying the book. I like to read in foreign languages, I haven’t touched a French book in a while but I have the sequel of phenix waiting for me. I’m also reading crazy physicist papers and find them a lot of fun.

 

Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?

 

Linda: I think the only thing is “If you want to do it, just do it”. We are generally the only reason stopping ourselves from doing great things.

 

Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers? Where can my readers find out more about you and your works?

 

Linda: All my books first drafts are on my blog so anyone can stop by and read them. My book are also at disposal for review, I give free pdf in exchange for reviews. You just have to message me and tell me which book you want to read. I recommend to read them in order even though they can stand alone.

 

Demon Soul by Linda HamonouDemon Soul:

She had seen his soul, a purple light, dancing, vacillating in his grey eyes and she had felt in love with him. They would have gone anywhere for each other, there seemed to be no end to their happiness. But now it was gone, his body had become an empty moving shell and he was forgetting about her, about himself, about everything….

Desperate, crying for help, Brownie can only let him walk away under the rain which can’t hide her tears. But there is more to her than that.
She is determined to bring him back and she would go to hell for it. Diving in the darkness of demonic Magick, she will following the only path she knows to help him get better. She will steal his soul back from the demons…

But there are things she wasn’t prepare to answer to… How do you raise a baby demon? Especially when this one seems to be growing unbelievably fast.

Attic Mirror by Linda HamonouAttic Mirror:

Hitomi pushes one more door. This is the part of the attic where nobody ever comes. She feels the cold air coming out of the dark room. It smells like dust and old things. She pushes the door a little more and enters…

Her curiosity becomes slowly stronger than her fear of the darkness and she starts to explore. She finally starts to enjoy herself, uncovers a strange looking mirror and puts an old dress in front of herself.
“Really, really nice”, she heard a voice say.
She startles, turns around in the room, she is all alone…

Then she looks in the mirror….

Attic Mirror is available at: http://www.amazon.com/Attic-Mirror-Linda-Hamonou/dp/1463670737

Demon and Fairy by Linda HamonouDemon and Fairy:

Seti likes to fly to the beach and to look into that magical tidal pool, to see her. She is the only one, removing his pain and almost making him forget the Chaos inhabiting him and escaping the Demon World where he comes from and where he can’t have physical contact with anyone.

But one day, just looking isn’t enough anymore… from one world to the next, Seti fights again the darkness inside and the darkness outside. Darkness can take unexpected forms.

Demon and Fairy is available at: http://www.amazon.com/Demon-Fairy-Linda-Hamonou/dp/1480137065

Linda: Sorry for the delay and thank you for doing this Juli, I really appreciate it. ;D

No problem, Linda! Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule for to be here. I hope you all will check Linda’s work out and …I really hope you enjoyed this latest in our “Conversations” series!

A little more about Linda:

Born in 1983 in Brittany, France, Linda Hamonou spent most of her childhood reading adventure and fantasy books while exploring the folklore of Brittany. Later studying Physics, Linda obtained her PhD at Queen’s University, Belfast in 2009. Her studies led to travels in Europe and the US, leaving her with a sense of adventure that carried her to the top of Machu Picchu. A Phd graduate in 2009, Linda discovered NaNoWriMo and became determined to succeed by writing her first novel, Demon Soul. After 6 months of hard work completing the novel with an eye toward self-publication, Linda also managed to draft her second novel Attic Mirror. Hard at work on her third book, Demon and Fairy, Linda has also completed a draft of a detective story not yet ready for publication. Juvenile, fantasy, fiction and Young Adult are her categories… so far but this motivated writer is sure to surprise all of us as much as she has surprised herself to date!

Thank you so much for being with us, today Linda and good luck with your work and your writing! Folks, if you’d like to check out more of Linda’s stories, see her website at the above links. I hope you’ve enjoyed this latest in our “Conversations” series.  :)
