Welcome Today's Featured Author
Wendy Knight!!



Cauldron Bubble
 
“You’ve just always been the powerful one. I’m the smart aleck.”
“We’re the same. I’m night, you’re day. You have to have both to have life.”
“You can hide in the shadows.”
“And you can shine like the sun. This prophesy is about both of us.”

Destiny doesn't think she's anything special. The daughter of an outcast witch. Her twin, Fate, is her best friend, so that's awesome. They're experts in love potions and selling them to crazy high school kids.

So they can buy more shoes.

But that all changes when their school is attacked by warlocks—warlocks who want her power for their own. The attack launches her onto the path the stars have chosen for Destiny, Fate, and their long-lost father.

Oh, and Quin.

Quin, who's the son of a witch, only tolerating Destiny's presence because she can save his mother. Except along the way, that all changes, and he realizes Destiny is everything he never knew he wanted. The only problem is she thinks if love can be made from a potion, it can't be a real thing.

If they survive this, he's going to prove her wrong.

Fire Burn


**This is the second book in the series but can be read first**

“I’ve always been able to see the auras. But I knew you couldn’t because you refuse to see the darkness in people and I didn’t want you to ever change. So I didn’t tell you.”

Fate thought the prophecy was over. She graduated high school, made big plans with her family and her boyfriend to travel the world, and got a full-ride scholarship for college in the fall.

Despite blowing up the chemistry lab twice.

But all that changes when the witches show up, because the war they thought they won is just beginning and without Fate and Destiny leading the way, it’s a war they will all lose. Unfortunately, the coven wants them to lead separate teams. Like they somehow don’t realize Fate works better with her sister by her side.

Oh, and Damien.

Damien isn’t going to let the girl he loves face these odds alone. In fact, he’ll risk everything, even her, to help win this battle and keep her alive. Damien makes an impossible choice, one that will change them all.

Sometimes, love isn’t the answer.



About Wendy Knight
Wendy Knight is the award-winning, bestselling author of the young adult series Fate on Fire and Riders of Paradesos. She was born and raised in Utah by a wonderful family who spoiled her rotten because she was the baby. Now she spends her time driving her husband crazy with her many eccentricities (no water after five, terror when faced with a live phone call, no touching the knives…you get the idea). She also enjoys chasing her three adorable kids, playing tennis, watching football, reading, and hiking. Camping is also big—her family is slowly working toward a goal of seeing all the National Parks in the U.S.
You can usually find her with at least one Pepsi nearby, wearing ridiculously high heels for whatever the occasion. And if everything works out just right, she will also be writing.

Interview With Wendy Knight:
 
1. Can you tell us a little about your books? 
I write a little of everything, from middle grade to new adult, but my favorite is young adult paranormal/urban fantasy. The one thing that's most important is that my heroines will always save the day. I started writing because I read a princess story to my daughters about a princess who needed a boy to help her climb out a window. I was so sad. So Ari, my most kick-butt heroine, was born and I've been writing ever since!
 
2. When did you know you wanted to write a book? 
It's been a dream since I was little teeny and would write stories with those big fat crayons they give toddlers so they don't break them. 
 
3. Do you have a favorite food or drink you must have nearby when writing? 
Pepsi!!! And Cheerios. Weird combination, but delicious. If it's a stressful scene, I also need Lindt chocolate truffles or Dove chocolates. They're the only chocolates I like.
 
4. If you ever experience a case of writer’s block, how do you cure it? 
I drive around with the music up full blast and let my brain work through the scenes with the music. I think eighty percent of my books are just scenes I've come up with to go with songs on the radio.
 
 5. When you write do you write the first draft on a computer or paper and pen? 
Computer! My handwriting is so horrible I'd never be able to read it after!
 
6. What is a usual writing day like for you?  How is it structured? 
I am super big on routines. I'm like a toddler that way...ahem. Anyway, I take my kids to school at 8:00, then come home and write until 11. Then I do marketing stuff and my day job. Then I coach until 5:00 PM, hang out with my kids, eat something because apparently you can't live on Pepsi and Cheerios, and then edit or write more after everyone's in bed. I go to bed around midnight and do it all over again!

7. For a reader who hasn't read your books yet, which book do you suggest they start with? Cauldron Bubble. It's my newest series that I actually wrote to bribe my cross country team to beat their personal records. If they did, I told them I'd put them in my books! But it's a fun series and I love the characters so much. If fantasy isn't your thing, try my Star Crossed Hurricane. It's a short contemporary romance and the only one of my books that I've read more than once.
 
8. How do you decided whether the story is going to be just one book or more than one book?
 It will be 3 full novels and a short novella! The next two come out in March, and the last will come out in May. And then I will have to say goodbye and cry and cry.
 
9. If your fairy godmother waved her wand and whisked you away to the location of your choice, which place would you choose, and why? 
 Scotland! So much history, so beautiful. My ancestors are from Scotland and I've been fascinated by it my whole life!
 
10. What are writing projects are you currently working on? 
I'm editing Double Double right now, which is the prequel novella to Cauldron Bubble. This week I also get to start on the final book in the Toil & Trouble series--which still needs a title!

It's been nine years since I last saw Dante Santiago. I always had the biggest crush on Dante. That wasn't easy either. He was always around, being that our families were so close. Dante was always the sweetest, most handsome guy I've ever seen. I was hoping to outgrow this childhood crush, but I've never stopped thinking about him. I'd hope that when I came home and saw him for the first time, those feelings would be done, or at least diminished, but no such luck. He is even more handsome than I remember. He was a fifteen year old boy when I left. Now he's a man, and hot as hell!

Demi Mitchell is, my best friend, Madoc's little cousin. Her father is Digger, the President of the motorcycle club we belong to, so I've known Demi her whole life, and I've always considered her family. I've missed her so much since she left for school. Now she stands before me, all grown up ... gorgeous.  And God help me , the last thing I want to think of her as is family. If Digger even suspected the thoughts I am having about his little girl, he would kill me, along with her brother, Drew, another one of the clubs senior officers. Not to mention her Uncle Frank, the Vice President, and of course Madoc. Hell, my own father wouldn't be too happy with me, either. But I can't stop thinking about her.

Can Demi and Dante fight the feelings they have for each other? Or will they defy their families and the MC to be together?

About the Author

I have always wanted to entertain people. To be a part of something that made people laugh or cry or just escape for a while, whether it was through television, film, or books. Three years ago I started writing a story during NANOWRIMO to get out of my own head. I feel in love with the characters and decided to turn that story into a novel for some friends who enjoyed my fan fiction in the past. Then one day I was friended by an editor who encouraged me to share my novel with others.

jompsynopsis

It’s a simple enough transaction. Marisol needs the money, and I need a nice girl to parade in front of the cameras. No feelings. No strings. No falling for anyone. I’ve been clean for months, but my record company’s not satisfied. Apparently it’s not enough to only kick a heroin addiction - they’re insisting that I find a girlfriend as well. If I don’t, they pull Dirtshine’s massive record deal. It’s supposed to show I’ve changed my ways, that I’ve turned over a new leaf, all that rubbish. But I’ve had it with wankers in suits sitting in their corner offices. I’m on the verge of telling them to go f*ck themselves. And then she shows up. Marisol locks me out of my own concert by accident. She’s wearing a suit at a rock show, searching for her lost law school textbook, has no idea who I am… ...and for the first time in years, I’m hooked. She’s smart, driven, and utterly gorgeous. The sort of girl who earnestly believes in following the rules and hates when others don’t. I’m a huge rock star, recovering addict, and general f*ckup. Our relationship is for show, and that’s all. But with every smile, every laugh, and every breathtaking glance at her curves, I want her more.
Two months is all we agreed to. But it’s never going to be enough.

Interview With Lisa Hofmann


Interview With Lisa Hofmann!

1.    Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m 41 years old. I’m a summer person, and I love traveling, art, music, and cats. I’m stubborn. Luckily, I have a wonderful, supportive family. I’m a self-publisher by conviction, and I enjoy the creative freedom that gives me. I work with some wonderful people I would never have had the pleasure of meeting if I had opted for a publishing house.


2.    Can you tell us a little about your books?
I write medieval fantasy novels with strong characters. The magic in my stories is subtle, hidden, and not always what you’d expect, I think. I have the first two books of a series out right now, and I’m working on the third, as well another project that’s set in a similar world and time.


3.     When did you know you wanted to write a book?
I grew up with books, and telling and writing stories has always been something that comes naturally to me. I think I’ve always been writing something or other – I was the kid who had to read out her essays in class, and it amazed me that the other students wanted to hear what I’d penned. I remember writing a story in tenth grade that classmates of mine actually handed around school until almost everyone in my grade had read it.

 
4.     Do you have a favorite food or drink you must have nearby when writing?
Tea. I’m addicted to Roibush Caramel. Can’t write without it.


5.    If you ever experience a case of writer’s block, how do you cure it?
I’m so glad I never have. I don’t think I’ve ever run out of ideas. There is always something at the back of my mind, wanting out. I have way too little time to write.


6.     When you write do you write the first draft on a computer or paper and pen?
Paper and pen. It gives me a better overview, and I’ve always got a writing pad with me wherever I go so I can jot down ideas. It’s just quicker, and I can do little drawings or diagrams as well, a bit like storyboards and rough sequences I can use later on for the book trailers.


7.     What is a usual writing day like for you?  How is it structured?
One day is never like the other. I’m not a full time writer, so I organize my writing around my job and my family. I write whenever and wherever I get a chance – on my break at work, in my car, on a bench outside my children’s sports or music lessons, and late in the evenings or at night when the house has gone quiet.


8.    For a reader who hasn't read your books yet, which book do you suggest they start with?
I’d suggest beginning with Dies Irae Book 1, Stealing the Light. It’s the first in my current series, and I’ve been told it draws a reader in. Writer’s Digest had a lot of good things to say about it recently – it was awarded an “outstanding” in every category in its genre for the Best Self-Published Books Award 2016 and will be getting an honorable mention in the May/June edition. I loved writing it.


9.     If your fairy godmother waved her wand and whisked you away to the location of your choice, which place would you choose, and why?
I’d love to go to New Zealand. Some quiet beach there, just my laptop and me for a few days. That would be great.


10.  What are writing projects are you currently working on?
I’m working on the third book of a series, as well as a stand-alone fantasy novel titled “Trading Darkness”, which I love editing right now. It’s a story about choices, heroes, and demons – but not everything is quite as clear as we might think at the beginning.
