I Am Her... (I Am Her... #1)

A sometimes funny, tragically graphic, compelling tale of a woman suffering...


She has no name of her own. She is every name everyone has ever called her. She is nameless. She has a good job, a beautiful home and a wonderful husband. She is everything she was supposed to be. She has structure and stability, but she is lost.

She is trying. Her whole life is spent trying; yet her whole life has been nothing but an apology. She is so tired of trying and failing.

In just one week, she learns her entire life is a series of brutalities. She learns intense, consuming passion for the first time with a beautiful stranger. She learns love within this passion, and she learns heartbreak while without.

Slowly her breakdown overcomes her. She tries to rise above her circumstances, but when she has nothing left to fight with; she tries to ease the pain forever.

Desperately, she fights her way through the agony of life, and she returns with a gentle hope. She wants to live, and she wants to love, for the first time in her life. Now, she has a name. Now, she can be 'her'... Any HER that she wants to be.

This is me... (I Am Her... #2)


The tragic conclusion to 'I am HER...'

She has a name. She has a past and she has a history.
She knows who she is. And she knows who she wanted to be.
She knows the way to all she ever wanted, but she knows she can't change the past that destroyed her.

"I swear I'm here, but I'm not. I swear I can feel, but I don't.
I swear I hear people, but I'm all alone.
Where am I? What have I done?"

If everything you knew was nothing you know, how do you begin to live again?
When beautiful dreams surround you but darkness consumes you, how do you begin to live anew?

"After I exhale, I turn to my empty room once again.
In the silence that follows my tears, I am washed in clarity.
I am NOT her. THIS is me..."

My Dear Stranger

"Last night my dear stranger came to me..."

Sadie Adams spent years hiding a secret in her journal. A beautiful secret wrapped in a dear stranger who came to her in the night. A stranger who came to her filled with love, passion, and devotion. And her only release from her secret days and her lonely nights came from her journal; a journal that kept her company as life slowly passed her by while she anxiously waited for his return.

"How do you live, when you've spend your life waiting alone?"

Waiting, the darkness and pain grew until within the grip of loneliness and death, she finally found a light to hold onto.
Brighter and kinder than anyone she had ever known, Sadie finally chose to live in a world of light...
Even as a Darkness was born to destroy her.

My name is Sophie Morley, and this is my story of loss.

I used to be mature, professional, and stable. I used to have friends and colleagues who respected me. I used to be someone I respected. I knew the life I wanted, and I lived within my forever plans. I was everything I thought I should be.

Then I met the man of my dreams, and everything changed in me.
Everything I was and everything I was to become changed with his love.
And I've never regretted one single moment of the life we shared.

My name is Sophie Morley,
and I am lost.

Author Bio:

 I'm a Scottish Canadian living in Canada with my American husband and our son.  I presently work full time, mommy every other minute until 9:00pm, wife for a bit (when I have to :p), then I write until I simply pass out.  I average 5 hours sleep a night, yet I always seem to have the energy to continue.  
Oh!  And I've just finished writing my 5th book

 Interview with Sarah Ann Walker:

1) Can you tell us a little about your books?
 My books are typically dark, heavy reads, with a deeper psychological element.  My stories have been labelled 'Mind Fucks' by a few groups, or stories that give the reader 'the Feels'.  I'm not known for hearts and flowers, though the endings do hold a kind of closure.

2) Do you have a favorite character to write about?
Typically, I write about women with issues.  Whether they start out strong and end up weakened, or they begin weak, I enjoy walking through the minds of emotionally challenged, often broken women.

3)  What has been your favorite book to write?
I am HER... was my favorite because it was my first.  But LOST was the closest story to my own heart.

4) Do you prefer to write standalones or series?
 My first book was a standalone until 8 months after its completion, then I wrote the unintentional sequel.  But my 3 subsequent books have all been standalones.

5) Do you have any odd writing habits?
I drink ALOT of coffee when I write.  Like, if I could get my coffee intravenously, I would.

6) Do you have a favorite spot to write?
Yes!  Strangely I have to write on an outdoor patio furniture loveseat.  Even in the dead of winter, freezing my ass off in -20 weather, I still have to write outside on one specific loveseat, prompting my neighbors to think I'm mental.

7) Do you listen to music while you write?
I don't listen to music when I write but music DOES play a huge part in my writing.  Typically, as I write a scene a song enters my head until the music gives me the feel I need.  Songs that are my favorites, or that I have internalized over the years, always end up making it into my books.

8) What's one random fact about yourself that you can share?
 I absolutely adore my son, I must wear high heels, I crave dark chocolate with sea salt always, and I drink way too much coffee.

9) Are you attending any author signing event this year?
 I was invited to attend The Lovely Ladies and Naughty Books-  Bash at the Beach on June 6, 2015, and I'm so excited.  This will be my fist American Authors Event, and I can't wait!

10) What writing projects are you currently working on?
 I just completed my 5th book. 'Choices...' to be released in July 2015.

Release Blitz for Fake by D Breeze


*Can be read as a standalone*

She never wanted for anything. Beautiful, spoilt, loved.
Lydia Romero thought she had a taste of the good life - but do you really know any different as a child?
Looks can be deceiving.
When her world changes and everything she thought she knew turns out to be a lie, she makes a decision that changes the course of her life for good.

Ruben Brent is her soul-mate.
He’s the envy of every guy he meets and the crush of every woman, but his heart only belongs to one – Lydia Romero.
She’s the most beautiful girl he has ever laid eyes on, and he’s been in love with her since they were kids.
But it all started with a lie.
And now he can’t escape the web of deception he’s weaved.

Two lives.
Two hearts.
One huge mistake.


“Oh my God!” I giggled again.
Ruben looked as shocked as I felt. “We broke the table.”
“No shit!” Looking down at him, I said, “I can’t believe we did that.” ...
The door burst open and the receptionist stared at us. Her face pinched. “What on earth are you doing?” She didn’t need to ask, it was pretty obvious.
“Um…” I said, causing Ruben to chuckle.

I was a man being lead by his dick, and let's face it, it's a hard thing to argue with.

Release Blitz for Dear Diary by M. B. Feeney

The brilliant and loving Mich Feeney has joined the Magic of Books Promotions team. Her talents and expertise will shoot the promotional company into the stars and beyond. To help welcome her into the family, as owner of the company, I present the newest book of the author and friend she has become to me.


glitterbase (9)

Born and bred in the UK, Holly is getting the chance of a lifetime—six weeks abroad. The Kings, a host family in the US, have invited her to stay with them and get a chance to experience life as an American. When she discovers that the King family includes two teenage boys, will she be glad she came or ready to hightail it back across the pond?

M. B. Feeney is an army brat who finally settled down in Birmingham, UK with her other half, two kids and a dog. Currently at university studying for her BA (Hons) in primary teaching, she procrastinates on her assignments by listening to music of all genres and trying to get ‘just one more paragraph’ written on whichever WIP is open. She is also a serious doodler and chocoholic. Writing has been her one true love ever since she could spell, and publishing is the final culmination of her hard work and ambition.

Her publishing career began with two novellas, and she currently has multiple projects under way whilst Honour, a compilation of her own military based shorts, was released in November 2013 and her short novel, The One That Got Away was released February 2015. Always having something on the go can often lead to block which eventually gets dissolved by good music and an even better book.

Her main reason for writing is to not only give her readers enjoyment, but also to create a story and characters that stay with readers long after the book is finished, and possibly make someone stop and think “what if...”


I've only just met Mich, but I already see a lifelong friend. Her talents go far beyond writing. She's a thankless mother of two, a loving woman to her soulmate and is always thinking of her friends before herself. Maybe that's one of the reasons she's gone into teaching; a chance to shape the young minds of our future writers. I'm so excited to spend time with a generous and loving personality like hers and to learn and grow from her wealth of expertise. My life will never be the same now that you have entered my life.



Hmm, a personal testimony about Mich (M.B. Feeney) . . . Where to start! Shall I do this like a Best Man speech? Yeah, why not
*pouts that I don’t have a glass of bubbly to toast this awesome girl*

Well, I first ‘met’ Mich quite a few years ago. I can't remember the exact details, but knowing us two, we were probably up to no good. It was online, of course, but that didn’t stop us! We grew close as friends and then we cemented our friendship by meeting up in person. It was at a Twilight convention (don’t groan, it was a fun weekend! Lol).

Here’s what I’ve learned and loved about Mich over the years:

She is fiercely loyal to her friends and family. No matter what, she’s there. No matter what she’s going through herself, she’s there for her friends.

She has a slight music addiction (which we share). I’ve lost count on the artists we’ve talked about over the years lol.

She also adores her cowboy boots (The Boots Stay on!) I swear this addiction was brought on by Jackson Rathbone, but it’s not like I’d complain. Have you seen that man on stage? Phew!

She loves 1 Direction *coughs* Louis *coughs*

She is one hell of a kick arse author! Have you read her books? Damn, this girl can write! She sticks to normal men! Nope, there’s not a billionaire arsehole in sight, thank God!

She’s training to be a teacher. Now, props to her, because being in a classroom of 30+ kids all day . . . nah lol.

But the thing I love about Mich is this. She’s Mich. She puts on no front. What you see is what you get and that’s quite rare in an author. She hates putting herself out there. She hates pimping herself. She’ll bend over backwards for anyone, but ignores herself.

She is an awesome friend and I know that I can count on her for anything. I know she wants the publishing world to take her seriously, because she lives for books – reading and writing.

And Mich, when you get this, when you sit and read this . . . Thanks. Thanks for being such an amazing friend, an awesome author, and someone anyone can instantly love.

*raises cup of tea*

The moment I read M B Feeney’s first story, I knew I had discovered one seriously talented author. With a British flavour to each of her stories, M B builds strong, unique characters that draw the reader in until they can’t help but become invested. Her latest offering, Dear Diary (The Exchange Series Book 1) is no exception. A great start to what I anticipate will be a fantastic series.
When she’s not busy with writing, her studies and family commitments, M B Feeney is 100 percent committed to supporting the indie writing community. She has not only read and reviewed hundreds, if not thousands of stories over the years, she has always been there to lend an ear, shoulder, or hand any way she can for countless numbers of people.
On a personal level, I’ve known M B Feeney for well over 5 years. She is a true friend, mother, sister and confidante… a woman who is genuine, honest, and generous to a fault. (She is also quite partial to pear cider now and then too lol). She also encouraged me to take my first tentative step into the world of writing, and for that, I will be forever grateful. I can honestly say without a single doubt in my mind, that if it weren’t for one Ms M B Feeney, I would not have become a published author.

L J Harris.


With stories set in England that are witty yet quirky, M.B. Feeney has a way with words that’ll suck you right into her fictional worlds. I'm proud to call her friend.

Alyssum Bracken sets out in search of Jensen Burkhardt…

After a longtime feud over copper between the Gremalian and the Gobel races, she hopes he has inherited his father’s legendary abilities as tensions rise to a breaking point. But when she finds him in faraway New York, Alyssum discovers she didn’t reach the handsome gremlin first. Aric, a rival goblin, is already ensconced in Jensen’s life.

However, Aric Bramble isn’t the enemy…

Courageously risking exile to save both races from a bloody war, the unlikely trio decide to work together. A forbidden friendship with Aric, a first love with the noble Jensen, while juggling her father, their leader, the prejudice of her people against the Gobel—and Aric’s people trying to kill them all—might be too much for Alyssum to handle.

Jensen’s strength is the one thing keeping Alyssum grounded, but will their relationship be threatened by her friendship with Aric?

Will any of them even survive the coming conflict? Alyssum isn't sure…but she’s going to try.
