FISSURE

(Chronicles of the Interred #2)

a fun plus 101

By Marilyn Almodovar

YA Paranormal Romance

Released May 20, 2014

Published by Iambe Books, LLC

Amazon | Barnes and Noble

 

Baxter Jacobs just survived the worst Sweet Sixteen in history: buried in a coffin, hunted down by assassins, and losing almost everything that mattered to her. She’s ready for some normalcy, but “normal” won’t play any part of this Time Bender’s future.

Now that the immediate threat is over, Baxter learns just how much the English Council expects of the newest Interred. The pressure has her seriously considering her uncle’s offer to take her to New York, especially since she thinks it will keep her Healer, Jack, from overusing his abilities. Knowing the New York Council’s ranks are filled with beings using dark powers, however, makes her hesitate.

Before she can choose, the decision is wrenched from her. Fissures in Time result in a new battle with an old enemy. Someone she thought she’d lost reenters her life, and she’ll discover a web of lies woven into the fabric of Time…lies only she can unravel. Baxter will have to use her growing abilities to try and reveal the truth, even if it forever changes the reality she knows.

Fissure the second book in the Chronicles of the Interred series picks up where the first book left off, with Baxter and Jack recouping from their adventures and battle with Declan. Declan Ashdown had been caught in a time loop for 122 years, and once released had determined to have his revenge against the Time Bender Baxter. So after Baxter and Jackson… her healer… had defeated their enemy, believing it was the end of their troubles. They attempt to heal, and find some normalcy. Although with both having lost so much, including family and those they love….there is an anger and hurt that appears to come  between them initially. These strong emotions, on both sides have Baxter and Jackson attempting to protect the other at their own detriment and by going to extremes. But soon the two are joined again as one when having to face those who called themselves allies, but certain facts surface to make them wonder who they can trust but one another! Plus an old enemy returns by causing Fissures (small breaks) in time, in order to destroy the Time Bender once and for all.

I really, really enjoyed this book! the first presented a unique aspect on the paranormal YA and had a fast paced plot which left me breathless by the time I finished it. Fissure did not disappoint. Ms. Almodovar has a talent for telling a story that moves quickly and is full and rich…but in a way that seems effortless. As a reader, I can feel myself becoming lost in Baxter and Jackson’s adventure, while (and I actually caught myself doing this…) (physically)…holding my breathe in anticipation on what will happen next!

I enjoyed the interplay between Jack and Baxter. I will be honest in the first book, (before I knew better) I was actually rooting for Declan and Baxter uniting,…but trust me that quickly change…but I remember feeling as if Jackson was…,lol idk…an intruder… BUT again that was BEFORE I discovered Declan’s true nature! Now the tenderness and fierceness that Baxter and Jack have in desiring to protect one another, the tenderness in the way they speak to one another…just how they are…I love… plus Jack is such a hottie with his green eyes and black hair…I love how the author describes his effortless ability to be swoon worthy:)

I was also surprised at several revelations as the story evolved! (Attempting to not share spoilers is difficult!) Lol

Fissure was well written, fast paced full of intrigue, twist and turns and on the edge of your seat moments that is sure to thrill! I truly recommend to those who enjoy romance and adventure with Paranormal elements!

IndieWritersReview Welcomes Writing Wild (Crafting The Pagan Memoir)(Video Interview) Maverick Promotions


Hello Everyone! I am very excited that IndieWritersReview is host today for  Author T.J.Burns (Pagan Writers Press) #Maverick #Promotions #Virtual Tour!

 

 On Tour May 26th-30th

AUTHOR T.J. Burns

(Pagan Writers Press)

Website

a fun plus 101

T.J. has been writing stories, poems and plays for as long as she can remember. After a satisfying career as a massage therapist, at midlife she turned once again to her first love—writing. In 2008 she earned a MFA in writing from Goddard College. Today writing is both her passion and her profession.

After years of internal conflict over the fundamentalist religious teachings of her childhood T.J. came to the Goddess path when she “accidentally” attended a women’s Full Moon ritual and discovered that witches were not at all what her upbringing had taught her. In both of her spiritual incarnations T.J. understands what it’s like to be judged as odd, or even dangerous, by mainstream society. This understanding inspires her to write for and about those who dance to a different drumbeat—the heartbeat.

T.J. is a founding mother of a long-lived non-hierarchal New Moon Circle for women and also enjoys celebrating sacred days alone. She lives in California with her husband, three dogs and one cat. Her favorite hobby is spoiling her grandchildren.

She is also the author of The Ones Who Dance Alone: Full Moon Celebrations for the Solitary Witch.

MINE EXCERPT (Author JKahele)

I hear the locking of the bedroom door and my body begins to tremble. Ben takes his suit jacket off, draping it over the chair. Loosening up his tie, he removes it, placing it atop his suit coat. He unbuttons the two top buttons of his shirt. He walks over to me, turning me to face him. He kisses me softly on the lips.

“You have been a very bad girl, haven’t you?” he whispers creepily. I can feel the blood rush from my face.

“I’m sorry Ben.” I respond, my heart beating quickly. He neatly rolls the sleeves of his shirt up.

“Undress… Now!” He tells me sternly. I quickly remove all my clothes till I’m standing naked before him.

“Please Ben, I promise I won’t do it again!” I plead to him.

“I tire of your disobedience!” He says with frustration.

“I’m sorry, it won’t happen again!” I tell him desperately.

“How can I believe a word you say, when you have defied me over and over again?” He asks with irritation. I look down to the ground.

I hear the all too familiar clatter of his gold-buckle, dark brown leather belt as he unbuckles it.

“Face the bed.” He orders. I turn and face the bed.

“You took an oath to obey and honor me, till… death… do us part. You have disobeyed me again and now I must punish you!”

I stand, trembling, awaiting the punishment.

I feel the wind as he raises the belt in the air, and then, with merciless force, the belt strikes my lower back, savagely ripping my flesh.

He grips the belt tightly with his hand, raising it again.

The snap of the leather scorches my skin so viciously, my toes curl as it slams down on my lower back. My breath quickens, as his tortuous punishment continues.

He raises the belt again, aiming for the top of my thighs. He misses, hitting my side, causing me to flinch.

“Darling you moved, now we have to start all over again!” Ben says nonchalantly. I exhale and close my eyes tightly.

He raises the belt again. Without conscience or regret, he swings the belt into the air, then, with a deep fury, he slams it down on my back.

I tremble as the pain sears through me, but I don’t scream. I never scream, I hold it inside. His relentless punishment continues until he tires. I stand completely still, my body trembling as tears fall down my face. Ben places his hands gently on my shoulders.

“Lie on the bed.” he whispers in my ear. I crawl on my knees, lying on my stomach. Ben leaves the room. He returns fifteen minutes later.

“You are my wife, and you need to learn to obey me and what I say. I am only trying to help you.”

He crawls in between my legs, and places cream on the bloody belt marks. I whimper as the cream burns. I realize it was the cream that Ben had sent Helda to the store for.

My mind wanders to the dark place, the place where only I can go.

I stare out aimlessly at the blank wall. Ben lies next to me, stroking my head gently.

The morning after was always the worse, the horrific memories of the night before quickly fills my mind as the bloody marks that encrusted my body throbbed painfully. Another emotional scar is added to the collection of pain and heartbreak I had endured over the years from Ben.

Five Mistakes KILLING Self-Published Authors


Great info guys!

Rise of the Machines Human Authors in a Digital World, social media authors, Kristen Lamb, WANA, Rise of the Machines

When I began writing I was SO SURE agents would be fighting over my manuscript. Yeah. But after almost thirteen years in the industry, a lot of bloody noses, and even more lessons in humility, I hope that these tips will help you. Self-publishing is AWESOME, and it’s a better fit for certain personalities and even content (um, social media?), but we must be educated before we publish.

Mistake #1 Publishing Before We Are Ready

The problem with the ease of self-publishing is that it is, well, too easy. When we are new, frankly, most of us are too dumb to know what we don’t know. Just because we made As in English, does not automatically qualify us to write a work spanning 60,000-100,000 words. I cannot count how many writers I’ve met who refuse to read fiction, refuse to read craft books, and who only go to pitch agents…
