RELEASE DAY EXCERPT: Say Yes by Tara West

RELEASE DAY EXCERPT: Say Yes by Tara West

EXCERPT I make my way through the crowd toward Andrés, ignoring the “Hey, baby” from some drunk behind me. Andrés is at a table with a bunch of guys I’ve never met before. He’s probably never met them before, either, but Andrés has this magnetic personality, and he can make friends with just about anyone.     He’s sitting on the edge of his seat, waiting for the quarterback to throw the ball. He still hasn’t spotted me, so I hang back for a second. He’s got this look on his face as if all of life’s happiness hinges on this one moment.     I don’t bother looking at the television. Watching Andrés is far more enjoyable. He jumps out of his seat, pumping his fist in the air and hollering. He’s taller than most of the other men, and far more attractive. Even in late fall, he’s got beautifully tanned… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Urban Harvest Anthology

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Urban Harvest Anthology

Interview with Andrea Stanet, one of the authors featured in Urban Harvest: Tales of the Paranormal in New York City. What do you like about writing in the paranormal genre? The paranormal genre and I have had a long and tumultuous love affair filled with many sleepless nights for almost my entire life. To this day, I can’t get enough of vamps, were-creatures, and of course, ghosts. One thing I love about the genre is that you can do so much with myths and creatures. I enjoy turning tropes on their heads in wacky ways and I like to toy with the humorous side of the genre. For instance, a few years ago, on a whim, I thought a YA quartet of short stories that is a mash-up of vamps, werewolves, zombies, and aliens all living in a suburban community would be hilarious. It’s pretty silly, but I had fun… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Fearsome by S.A. Wolfe

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Fearsome by S.A. Wolfe

EXCERPT Am I still so naïve and foolish that I cannot truly see the wonderful man in front of me who cares about me? I place my hands on Dylan’s chest and feel his strong heartbeat underneath the thin T-shirt. He is so attractive that I begin to consider lewd thoughts to dismiss my earlier anger. Without deliberating further, I start taking off his T-shirt. He looks a little bewildered, but assists in removing his shirt. I rub my hands up and down his muscular torso and push him back towards the porch wall. Then Dylan watches as I unbutton my blouse. A wonton expression overcomes his face as I stand before him in my see-thru lace demi bra. I step out of my skirt and underwear and begin kissing him as I put my hand down his jeans, aggressively groping his hardness. “Okay,” Dylan rasps and then he turns… Read more »

GUEST REVIEW: Dying Is My Business by Nicholas Kaufmann

GUEST REVIEW: Dying Is My Business by Nicholas Kaufmann

GUEST REVIEW BY ISIS! I would like to thank NetGalley for offering me access to works published by St. Martin’s Griffin, and St. Martin’s Griffin for granting me the chance to read this ARC, and introducing me to this author, all in exchange for an honest review. Though I received the e-book for free that in no way influences this review (which anyone who reads my reviews knows). In my world we would be able to rate books with 1/2 stars, but we can’t so my official rating is 4 stars, but my REAL rating is 4.5 stars. Given his line of work in the employ of a psychotic Brooklyn crime boss, Trent finds himself on the wrong end of too many bullets. Yet each time he’s killed, he wakes a few minutes later completely healed of his wounds but with no memory of his past identity. What’s worse, each… Read more »
