Introducing The Enlightening by Adrianne James






Mackenzie Duncan found out that pack life wasn’t for her. Now she is running for the second time in the six months   since she was bitten and turned into a Werewolf. But this   time, she isn’t alone. This time, she has Geoff and Liam     with her, two very hot Werewolves vying for her heart.

But her companions aren’t her focus. The only thing she can focus on is getting far from her old pack and their murderous ways. Only, she doesn’t just want to run. She wants to warn every pack she can that their lives are in danger too. No one should be turned against their will like she was and no other pack should have to surrender to the ideas of a centuries old, power hungry woman.

Not only does Mackenzie have to deal with her crazy ex-pack leader sending people out to kill her, she has to keep both men at arm’s length (and that proves to be much more difficult than she thought), but she finds out more about her own life and heritage than she ever thought imaginable.

And suddenly, everything makes sense…

 



Get the first book in the Mackenzie Duncan Series, The Tempering while it is on sale!  

The Mythology department at prestigious Harvard University is tiny—and Mackenzie Duncan has just been selected as one of the lucky few. Her love for myths and legends is strong, but she never thought any of it could be real.

After being attacked by a large wolf while walking home alone, Mackenzie realizes something is not right. She heals quickly, is suddenly super strong, and is experiencing mood swings that can’t possibly be normal. The myths she’s studying aren’t myths at all. Werewolves are real and she’s one of them. Fear of what she is, and who she might hurt sends Mackenzie running from the life she’s worked hard to build–and straight into the arms of a handsome Were named Geoff and into the home of his pack. Living with her new pack takes the edge off her confusion and self-loathing, but the arrival of new pack members changes the dynamic, and tests Geoff and Mackenzie’s growing relationship.

The hardest part of being a werewolf is having no control and no memory of her time as a blood thirsty beast. When a moon cycle passes and she actually remembers bits and pieces of the night, she starts to ask questions, and the more questions she asks, the more she realizes she doesn’t like the answers. Can she set aside her own sense of morals to belong to a pack that is like a family or will she leave everything behind yet again in search of a life she can be proud of?

 Growing up, Adrianne couldn’t get her hands on enough books to satisfy her need for the make believe. If she finished a novel and didn’t have a new one ready and waiting for her, she began to create her own tales of magic and wonder. Now, as an adult, books still make up majority of her free time, and now her tales get written down to be shared with the world.


During the day, Adrianne uses her camera to capture life’s stories for clients of all ages and at night, after her two children are tucked in bed; she devotes herself to her written work. Adrianne is living the life she always wanted, surrounded by art and beauty, the written word and a loving family.

As a young adult and new adult author, Adrianne James has plans to bring stories of growing characters, a little romance, and perhaps a little magic and mythology down the line for her readers to enjoy.

“I didn’t want the story to end. Loved it from start to finish.”

“I couldn’t put it down! 5/5 stars. Can’t wait to see where Charli goes from here.”

 “Naked Edge fills a gap that I didn't even realize I had in the New Adult books I've been reading…I felt for Skylar and Rowdy. I cheered for them. I ached for them.”

Guest Post: New Adult Romance released by E.L. Todd - Only For You

Hi everyone! I have some wonderful news and I'm excited to share it with all of Charlotte's friends. My name is E.L. Todd and I am a new author. I just released a new adult series, the Forever and Always series, and I hope it's something you all will enjoy. The first book is Only For You. 

Here is the synopsis:

When Scarlet realized Penelope was dumping Sean, her best friend, she was devastated. Penelope was the love of his life, the woman of his dreams. Scarlet knew how far her best friend was going to fall and she had to catch him. Scarlet became Sean’s rock and helped him through a very painful breakup, but her own hidden desires bubbled to the surface in the process. When they finally gave in and slept together, she thought it was the start of their new relationship. Unfortunately, Sean didn’t feel the same.

Humiliated and heartbroken, Scarlet moved across the country and found what she least expected. She rekindled her damaged relationship with her brother, who she hadn’t spoken to in a year, and her brother’s best friend was attractive and interesting. Their relationship was natural and unforced, and she was immediately drawn to him. Would she be able to get over Sean, forget about him, by sleeping with Cortland, or would that just be another repeated mistake?

And a quick excerpt:

“What do you want to see?” she asked.
            “I get to pick? You never let me pick.”
            She shrugged. “Today’s your lucky day.”
            “I guess I should get dumped more often.”
            She smiled at me. “What do you want to see?”
            “Nothing with love or that chick-flick shit.”
            “Okay,” she said. “That’s fine. I don’t care what we watch.”
            I laughed. “Since when?”
            “Just pick,” she said, pinching my side.
            “I want something with guns, explosions, and death and stuff.”
            She rolled her eyes. “You are so cliché.”
            “Hey,” I said. “What happened to me getting to pick?”
            “I said you could pick the movie. I never said I wouldn’t make fun of you for it.” She stepped toward the ticket booth and pulled me along with her. “How about the new James Bond movie?”
            I nodded. “That works.”
            “And it has hot chicks in it.”
            “You think I didn’t already know that?” I laughed.
            She glared at me for a moment then stepped toward the window. She ordered our tickets, which I paid for, despite her protests, and then we walked inside. I didn’t like it when Scarlet paid for anything. I knew she had a mound of student loans hanging on her shoulders. My entire education was paid for by my parents but Scarlet didn’t have that luxury. I offered to help her pay back her loans, but being the stubborn woman that she was, she refused any aid I offered. My parents loved Scarlet like their own daughter. If I asked them to pay off her debt, they would do it in a heartbeat. But, of course, Scarlet would never let that happen either.
            “Do you want something from the concession stand?” I asked.
            She raised an eyebrow. “Are you serious?”
            “What?”
            “Is that a serious question?” she asked. “I always want something from the concession stand.”
            “That’s right, I forgot. You’re a fatty.”
            She smiled at me. “A hot fatty.”
            I whistled. “Smokin’.”
            We stood in line, and when it was our turn, I ordered. “Just a medium popcorn, please.” I opened my wallet to grab the cash when Scarlet spoke.
            “And a bag of skittles, milk duds, and another medium popcorn.”
            I stared at her, dumbfounded. “I thought we would share a popcorn?”
            “I’m hungry.”
            I laughed. Scarlet never failed to surprise me. I pulled more money from my wallet and handed it over. We grabbed our snacks and walked into the auditorium.
            “I thought were going to dinner after this,” I said.
            “We are.” She sat in her chair and started shoving the popcorn in her mouth. Her candy was sitting on the arm rest, ready to be devoured immediately afterwards.
            “Are you starving or something?” I laughed.
            She glared at me. “No. I just like to eat.”
            “Apparently.”
            She threw a piece of popcorn at me, and it hit me on the shoulder. “I work out.”
            “Thankfully.”
            She threw another piece of popcorn at me.
            The movie started and I stared at the screen. I leaned back in my chair and watched the unstoppable action of the movie. It was a nice distraction from the disturbing reality of my mind. Halfway through the movie, Scarlet leaned her head on my shoulder but I didn’t mind the touch. I thought she was just being affectionate, but then I realized she was eating from my pail of popcorn because she already finished hers.
            “You are unbelievable,” I whispered. I laughed quietly, trying not to disturb our neighbors.

New Cover Reveal: Semester Aboard by Elizabeth Kirke

Semester Aboard, the first book in the YA urban fantasy series More than Magic series has a brand new cover! If you haven't read Semester Aboard yet, here's a quick summary and a little peek for you!

College student Jen Maddox is a few days into her summer study abroad program and has loved every moment. She just left Mexico and is back on her cruise ship campus, ready to sail to Panama. Everyone tells her that the experience will change her life, but none of them realize just how right they really are.
One night Jen goes out on deck and encounters five other students. She knows Charlie from one of her classes and he's a funny, friendly, regular guy. Picture-perfect Dani and his gorgeous wife Mariana live right down the hall from Jen. And she has seen TS, who's built like a truck, around the ship and recognizes the cute, but quiet Thomas as well.
Then Jen sees something that isn't humanly possible. Jen would have thought that it was all a dream, if not for the fact that Charlie, Dani, Mariana, TS, and Thomas are making every effort to cover it up. Suddenly, the five of them are everything but normal and Jen is determined to figure out what they're hiding.
When she does, her life really does change. Jen expected to spend her summer studying the cultures of Latin America, she never dreamed she'd learn about a magical culture instead.
But Jen's childhood fantasy come true is about to turn into a nightmare; there's something on the ship. Something dangerous. Suddenly, everyone on board is threatened by a creature that Jen never even believed existed. Jen and her new friends might be the only people who can stop it! Now Jen has to learn everything she can about her new world before it kills her. And her friends. And maybe everyone on the entire ship!

The More than Magic series is written by Elizabeth Kirke.

Sneak Peek:   It started raining early in the afternoon and was a bad storm by the time I went to bed.  I woke up in the middle of the night and stumbled over to our bathroom, feeling awful.  A bit of quality time bent over the toilet didn’t help at all and I decided to try for some fresh air.  I pulled a sweater on over my pajamas, hung my ID card strap around my neck, and slipped out of the room.  I made my way down the corridor to the door that led outside.  For the first time since getting on the ship I had to keep one hand on the railing.  The halls were well lit, even though it was the middle of the night, and it was almost disconcerting to step outside into the darkness.  But the moment the cool, damp wind hit my face I felt better.  I hadn’t been seasick since our first night, but sometimes I felt nauseous if I stayed in our room too long.  Being out on the deck always helped.
    I had assumed that I’d be the only one crazy enough to go out in the rain in the middle of the night, but to my surprise I wasn’t.  There were people on the other side of the deck.  It was too dark to see them well, but the lights from the deck above us illuminated them a little.  One of them was Charlie.  He was standing under the overhang where Deck Five extended out above Deck Four.  He was just wearing a t-shirt and jeans and I shivered in sympathy.  A guy I recognized, not surprising since we all lived on a ship, was sitting on the bottom steps of the outdoor stairway that led to Deck Five.  He was probably a football player back home or something.  He had shaggy, dark brown hair and a fairly large nose.  I’d heard a few girls giggling about him, but I didn’t think he was that good looking.  I wasn’t sure what his name was.  Another guy was sitting in a chair, probably pilfered from Deck Five, with his back to me and his feet up on the rails.  Mariana was near him, wearing only a bikini top and a short skirt.  I couldn't believe she wasn't cold.
    "I didn’t scream!" she said.
    "You totally did!  You freaked out!" Dani laughed.
    It had been too dark to notice Dani until he spoke.  My jaw dropped in shock.  Dani was sitting on the railing of the ship.  Messing around on the rails was one of the first things they’d told us not to do when we got on board.  Even sitting on them in the middle of a calm day was suicidal at best.  But to sit there in the middle of a stormy night was nothing short of a death wish.
    "I was not!" Mariana cried.
    "You were all like, 'Oh, Danio, save me Danio!'"
    "Well, I...I-don’t be such a jerk!"
    As Mariana spoke she spun to face Dani and shoved him hard.  Dani’s laugh turned into a yell of surprise and he tumbled backward off of the railing!  I gasped in horror.  Every second now was critical.  If someone went overboard we were supposed to immediately throw them a life preserver and then run and tell a crew member.  But not a single one of them did anything!  The one in the chair uncrossed his legs and recrossed them with a different one on top.  The guy on the stairs threw back his head and laughed!  Charlie quickly stuck his head over the railing and then pulled back and shivered.  It was as if Dani hadn't gone overboard at all.
    "Oh my god!" I gasped.  They must have been in shock.  That was the only reason they weren't rushing to save Dani.  I ran across the deck, at the very least, I could throw the life preserver in and hope he was still alive to use it.
    They all jerked around to look at me.  They acted more surprised to see me than they were about Dani falling overboard.  Mariana gasped and backed against the rail.  Charlie stepped to the edge of the overhang and Football Guy jumped off of the stairs to his feet.  The guy in the chair was on his feet in an instant.  I hardly even saw him move; one second he was sitting and the next he was up.  He stepped in front of the others, almost protectively.
    "That's Jennifer."  Charlie spoke softly like he didn't want me to hear, but the wind carried his words right to me.  "She's in one of my classes."
    The guy in front smiled.  "You're up late."
    They were acting like nothing had happened!  This was insane!
    "What's the matter with you?" I cried.  "We have to do something!"
    "Do something?"  He almost looked genuinely confused.  "About what?"
    "She just..." I gestured to Mariana.  "She just pushed Dani overboard!"
    He had the audacity to laugh.  "It's raining, you know.  And dark.  You're mistaken."
Hungry for more? Find the first four chapters on Elizabeth's blog... And now, what you came for, the new cover!

In addition to the new cover, courtesy of the amazing Strong Image Editing, a bonus chapter, from a different POV as been added to Semester Aboard, along with a glossary!

Release of new video trailer for The Channie Series by Charlotte Abel



As much as I hate to 'seal up' The Channie Series, I have so many other books in my head to start (and finish) that I had this little trailer created for the series to wrap it all up. It's not fancy but I think it is a good summary of the series and gives me the closure I need to feel like I can focus on The Sanctuary Series. I'll have more about that over the coming months but for now, please enjoy The Channie Series trailer.

Sanctuary: Jonathan's Song by Charlotte Abel for River's Recruit

One of the highlights of UtopYA this summer was the live performance of original music written by Amanda Havard for Chelsea Fine’s “Archers of Avalon” series, Quinn Loftis’s “Grey Wolves” series and Amy Bartol’s “Premonition” series.

I wish I had links to all the songs because they were so beautiful and inspiring. I decided while wiping the tears from my eyes that I wanted a song for my series, too.

Musical lyrics are essentially poetry. I can write poetry. If you’ve read “Enchanment,” “Taken,” or “Finding Valor,” you’ve no doubt noticed that all the spells and instructions from “The Book of the Dead” are written in poetic form. Therefore…I can write lyrics.

But that’s only half the equation. For it to be a song, the lyrics need music. And I am not the least bit musically gifted.

I took piano lessons for five years but can only play with my right hand. I took guitar lessons for three years and can play a stilted, awkward rendition of “Dust in the Wind.” I played saxophone in junior high but I was always last chair. I even played the Irish whistle in church once, but was not asked to play again. I can read music, sort of. But I can NOT sing.

Anyway…I felt inspired to write a song for “The Sanctuary Series.” I could even ‘see’ the music video in my head.  But without music and someone to sing the words, “Jonathan’s Song” was doomed to be nothing more than a figment of my imagination.

Fate intervened. I stumbled upon a gifted musician willing to collaborate and “Jonathan’s Song” is the result.

The music video isn’t quite what I imagined, but I’m happy with it. For now.

If there’s enough interest, I’d like to host a contest for indie videographers. Be sure to leave a comment if you’re interested and forward this post to anyone you think might be interested. I need at least ten entries to make it worthwhile. If I get ten entries, I’ll award a $100 to the winner. If there are more than twenty entries, I’ll make it $200. I’ll post links to all the entries on my blog and let ya’ll pick the winner by popular vote.

It was written for River's Recruit, Book One of The Sanctuary Series by Charlotte Abel available at Amazon: http://bit.ly/RiversRecruitAmazon or BN.com: http://bit.ly/RiversRecruitNook

Also download the Prequel, Down the Rabbit Hole by Charlotte Abel for free at Amazon: http://bit.ly/RabbitHoleCharlotteAbel or BN.com: http://bit.ly/RabbitHoleNook

Anyway…

Here’s  “Sanctuary: Jonathan’s Song
(If you like it, please be sure to click the ‘recommend’ button and leave a comment ;-)




Lyrics:
Broken and buried in an avalanche of pain.
I’m forever stained. 
Grief and guilt are crushing me.
Shelter me.
Please, shelter me. 

Eyes shine bright with a violet light
But the white wolf calls you tonight.
Heart to heart and skin to skin
Make me believe I’m whole again.

Cut away my scars with blades of steel.
Cure the unseen wounds that never heal.
Bind them up and stay with me.
Let the white wolf run free.

You’re my sanctuary. You’re my safe haven.
You’re the only reason that I’m still breathing.
Don’t leave me alone tonight.
Shelter me. Please, shelter me tonight.

My dreams drag me back to a hostile land
Where hero’s blood soaks the desert sand.
Afraid and alone with no way home.
Shelter me. Please, shelter me.
Please, shelter me.

You’re my sanctuary. You’re my safe haven.
You’re the only reason that I’m still breathing.
Don’t leave me alone tonight.
Shelter me. Please, shelter me tonight.

Braeden Drakonin can no longer run from who—and what—he is. He has to face the facts. He’s a prince. He’s a murderer. He’s a wanted man. And after a betrayal that leaves him heartbroken, he’s out for blood. To survive, both Kara and Braeden must become the evil each has grown to hate.
