The Gryphon Series Flies Again with a SIXTH Installment!

Sometimes, when I journey back to Gainesboro with the Garrett clan I think it's purely for selfish reasons. I love these characters so much, they feel like they're family. I miss Gram's kookiness, Kendall's sweet innocence, Celeste's sarcasm, Gabe's protectiveness, and pretty much everything about Caleb and Rowan. (Hubba, hubba--am I right?!)

But then I remember that I was done with this series, had wrapped it up in a pretty little bow to store away in my mind, when THE READERS poked and prodded me into continue the adventures of this lovable group of misfits. Could it be that you all love them as much as I do? I truly hope so, because the next installment of their adventures is HERE!!


With the death of a hero, a dark force has risen. 

A hellhound is loose on the Rhodes Campus, building its pack with a bloody body count. Any hope for salvation rests in the fiery hands of dashing Irishman, Caleb, with his power over the elements.

Fighting to save a dear friend from the internal monster consuming him, Caleb finds the love of his life a target for the vicious attacks. 

How far will he go to save Celeste from the destiny ravenous to claim her?

That's right, Caleb takes center stage for this next journey in all his smoldering hotness! (See what I did there? It's a play on words because he can control the elements. Plus, the dude on the cover is on fire. I'm over explaining this, aren't I? Let's move on with another pretty graphic ...) 

If you're in the mood for a sassy, fun read, snatch up your copy of Inferno today!

Disney Revelations

Anyone that knows me, knows I am a Disney fanatic. I would live at the theme parks if such a thing was feasible. Regularly, I scheme and plot in search of ways to make it so. (Come to find out, I can't pass as a member of The Country Bear Jamboree.) As of yet, all efforts to become a permanent  fixture in the parks have failed miserably. But my research continues. 

Usually, my family and I return from Walt Disney World vacations with loads of memories, giddy smiles, tired feet, and skinnier wallets. This time, I came back inspired by a simple moment potent enough to steal the breath from my lungs. 

The Disney day started simple enough, with my troop of lovable weirdos marching straight to Space Mountain where my youngest daughter would ride it for the very first time. Waiting our turn, she was a bundle of nerves. The seconds ticking by before we could board, she wanted to know exactly what to expect. Would it be dark? Would anything jump out at her? Did the ride go upside down? Was there an emergency exit in case she changed her mind? Like many of us, she felt if she knew every detail she could better prepare herself for what was coming. 

When the moment came for us to climb into our car, she turned to me with wide, frightened eyes. "Mommy, will you hold my hand?" 

With a reassuring smile, I laced my fingers with hers. "Absolutely, baby girl. And I promise not to let go." 

If you haven't been on the ride, it's single-seating in small train cars. To keep my word, I sat behind her with my hand on her shoulder. Her tiny fingers gave mine a tight squeeze the moment the car gave its first lurch forward. 

We were off! 

Up hills, zooming around corners, streaking through the darkness: all the while my husband and I hooted and hollered to put our nervous little one at ease, and show her we were having fun. 

Not even a quarter of the way through the ride, something amazing happened. Those little fingers released mine. My baby girl threw her arms in the air and whooped it up as we hurled down yet another hill. 

Instantly, my eyes filled with tears. (Side note: I cry when I'm happy, sad, stressed, relieved, laughing, or ... in this case ... overwhelmed with pride.) 

The second the ride stopped, my girl screamed at the top of her lungs, "THAT WAS AMAZING!" 
She hadn't known what to expect, yet was happily bowled away by the outcome.  

This got me thinking about the journey all authors, and the daring few that decide to chase their dreams, embark on. As we plug along, we're terrified of so many elements that can oppress us with negativity if we let them; sales rankings, bad reviews, rejections letters, the list goes on and on. Through the advice, tips, and experiences of other authors we try to formulate a map of what we can expect along this journey. But, like my daughter's experience, no one could describe for her exactly what it would be like. That discovery had to be hers alone. 

We could fear what lies ahead, gnawing our nails down to nubs that we may not "have what it takes."

We could hunt for that emergency exit because the pressure is just too much. 

Or, we can consider ourselves blessed to be doing what we love, throw our hands in the air, and enjoy the ride. The trek may not look the way we imagined, there could be a few stomach-churning lurches along the way. But in the end, when our car hisses to a stop, we may find that those high-hills along the way were more amazing than we ever could have imagined. 

In interviews, I am asked all the time what advice I have for authors just starting out. Now, instead of practiced responses, I have one from the heart. If this is your passion--if this is truly what you want--buckle in, work hard, and enjoy the ride. 

As for me? My hands are in the air, and I'm barreling into the future ... wherever it may lead.

St. Valentine Sinful Saints by Rain Murphy

Anchor Group Publishing is proud to bring you
St. Valentine ~ Sinful Saints Bk1
By Rain Murphy
***Don't miss the interview with Rain Murphy

Saint Valentine is not the saint he would have everyone believe him to be. In his madness he cursed three bloodlines: the Vampire, the Servant, and the Mate. What he had not considered was their free will. Once his creation discovered his many lies, they killed him on February 14th, a day they celebrate still.

River Sinclair has been given the power, in addition to the responsibility, to lead, care for, and control the Vampires; however, his Mate is the only entity that can complete him. River, among other Vampires, is destined to mate with a cursed bloodline that has eluded the Vampires for virtually fifteen centuries.

Rae thought herself an ordinary human until the day this strangely dressed man came walking into her bar. Rae soon discovers all the secrets that her family has been keeping from her, including her true nature and the meaning behind her name.

Happy Release Day to Heather C. Myers

Title: Keeper, Stranger Series Book 3
Author: Heather C. Myers
Genre: YA Dark Fantasy

Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Danger lurks in the most familiar places.
When General Arbuckle reveals the peculiar existence to the world, the Academy of Peculiars is forced to close as a way to protect the faculty and students. Sophie Harper is more focused on the fact that her best friend, Jane, may actually be alive than Arbuckle and the United States military. Daryl's older and mental brother, Marvin, is quick to promise Jane's safe return after brokering a deal with Daryl and Ethan, the academy's dean. But something doesn't sit well with Sophie about Marvin, and if Jane wasn't involved, she's certain Daryl wouldn't have trusted his brother. On top of that, a familiar body winds up slaughtered at the academy gates. Now it's up to Sophie to figure out who could have done it and why, while dodging flying bullets and suspicious ex-boyfriends. Will wants nothing more to protect her; Sophie wants nothing more than find her friend - and herself.
In the epic conclusion to the Stranger Series, Sophie will learn that just because someone is ambitious does not mean they're evil, those that she trusts the most have the power to betray her with relative ease, and the best relationship she can ever hope to have is the one with herself.

Full disclosure: I am an acquired taste. I'm a typical blonde Orange County suburbanite who says 'like' more than necessary, laughs loud and probably obnoxiously, and loves to dance in the rain. I'm a 26 year old college graduate with more than a few tricks up my sleeve, and I also happen to be a pretty big Ducks fan. Oh, and I'm a writer. Like, for real. I recently signed with Anchor Group Publishing, which will see two of my series being published this year. I've self-published over 15 books, with more on the way, so I'm familiar with both a hybrid-traditional publishing method as well as self-publishing.  I don't speak in third person (normally) nor do I wear glasses (except when I'm feeling particularly mischievous). I'm lucky to have found my soul mate at the ripe old age of 22, even though he frustrates me on purpose to get a reaction out of me. We live near Disneyland, have two rambunctious female puppies, and have a beautiful baby girl. He has two amazing boys, and has gotten me hooked on Smallville, watching soccer (okay, okay FOOTBALL - FC Barcelona, baby!), and Cancun Juice.
