My cabin sits near a portal to the Otherworld. The Dark Fae are sending ogres to kill any humans who survived the plague they unleashed a year ago.  First a baby dragon, then a goblin, show up looking for me. That’s when the fairy I’d known for a year decides to tell me I’m an elf and my high school boyfriend runs the Dark Fae. I went from human with a bad breakup to a fairy tale creature that was still in love with a killer in three days. A trip through the Otherworld portal shows me my birthplace and dangles the promise of a happy ending I thought was gone. Confronted with true evil, I have to learn my ice magic while fighting for my life. With rekindled love and a new family to protect, I’ll have to battle a psychotic elf with lightning power. One bolt and I’ll disintegrate. One of us won’t survive.

When she persuades a battered woman to leave her husband, Ellie finds herself the target of a sinister serial killer, and something about the case is making Owen increasingly unstable.

My name is Cimmerian. I’m a dragon shifter living in New Orleans. Someone is screwing up my pre-Mardi Gras plans by leaving mutilated human bodies all over town. I have to find out whether or not a demon is behind this. If so, are they building a human to animate with demon magic? If not, we have a human serial killer just in time for the town to flood with tourists.

Things were so much quieter on vacation.

Damn, I’m glad to be back at work.

Red Lady

The oldest living demon drug dealer is trying to take over Las Vegas. His newest creation, Red Lady, allows shifters to see demons as they materialize, which could tip the balance of species domination. Granted, in a direction I like, except, there’s a catch. The drug is so addictive shifters will do anything to feed their habit and distribution in energy drinks has human’s hooked. Including my ex-fiance’s boyfriend. I have to go to Vegas and save him, among others. This is going to suck.

With the pending threat that she may get thrown out of school, Ariel, her demon father, swoops in to save her. Like most demons, he could charm the panties off a statue. Sleeping his way through town cost him his marriage, and now, his daughter is growing into her demon powers. Ariel’s enemies kept an eye on his family and are ready to make their move when he steps in with them again. Raye needs Ariel and it pisses her off. Together, they have to save their daughterif they don’t kill each other along the way.

Shadowed Vengeance

As a Dragon Lord of the Arcane Court, it’s my job to hunt down demons who toy with or kill humans. My bonus is the magic I absorb sucking down their putrid squirming souls. The new local demon lord, Kragen, is the oldest living drug dealer and we blew up his primary warehouse in Vegas last year.

I’m sure he’s planning ways to pick my scales off one by one. In the meantime, his most dangerous henchman captured human woman, chained them to a wall, and made sure I got a picture by also capturing a fellow dragon.

I know it’s a setup, I don’t care. No one hurts humans in my town. If my demon powers keep me alive long enough to survive the trap.

How amazing do those sound!!? Make sure to check them out. For the rest of today, though, I have a video AND a written interview with Graylin. Check it out!


O.K, gang. Since some of you might have had trouble hearing some of that video interview, and since I wanted to make this a FULL interview anyway, here are some more questions for Graylin…

Chelle:  I  normally always start by getting to know our guest V.I.P author a little bit better and I didn’t do that on film, so…

1):   Can you tell us 3 things about yourself – no matter how random - that we couldn’t find out easily on the internet?

I shudder to think what you can find on the internet about me. Let’s see.
1.    I’ve lived in 7 different states, 5 of them by the time I was 12.
2.    I recharge by laying out at the pool.
3.    I listen to audiobooks more than I read. In part because I don’t like wearing the reading glasses age has forced me to need. 

2)  What are 2 things that always make you smile, and 2 things that never fail to make you angry? 

I smile a lot, now that I think about it. I’m blessed as a psychologist to watch individuals, of all ages, work hard to find joy and hope in their lives. Their struggles remind me how small mine are in comparison. Also, my cat Diva makes me laugh every day.
Prejudice, discrimination, and the violence that stems from them make me angry. I avoid watching the news (often) and scroll past the stories on FB and Twitter.

3) Aside from starting because you hated your job, was there anyone (or anything) that was directly involved with your drive to become an author?

I started writing poetry because I worked in data entry. It didn’t require me to use my mind, just eye hand coordination. So, my imagination went on little trips to keep me from going nuts while I looked for better work. Those small moving pictures I described changed into longer and longer vignettes and movies that I type up for my readers today.
The transition between poet and author began in earnest while working on a blog with Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Christine York. Their experiences, written in blog posts, helped ignite my imagination and eventually I was so busy writing books, I had to close down the blog. I love that even now I can send an email asking for advice and they answer me. They are gifted authors and great people.

4)  If you could spend the day with anyone – alive, dead, fictional, etc – whom would you want to spend it with, and what would you want to do?

There are book characters I would love to tag along with for a day. My life is very calm, I listen to people all day and write stories at night. All the adventure is in my head. I can’t pick just one, I have three characters I want to hang out with: Harry Dresden, Gin Blanco, and Rachel Morgan. Then, I’d come home grateful my life is calm and quiet.

5)  If we were to hop in your car or pick up your MP3 player and turn it on, what do you think we’d be most likely to hear?

Right now, Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull. I dance and sing in the car, most of the time, it’s songs my old voice teacher made me learn. Just so I can keep in practice.

6)  Was there any specific inspiration behind the creation of the ARCANE COURT or the CANDY MEN series?

Yes, to both. First, ARCANE COURT. I love dragons and I have wonderful author friends who drop plot bunnies all over the place. When Kim Knox and Lori Ella started a dragon conversation back in 2012, a story began to grow. I researched where I wanted the dragon to live, making it a place where he could’ve been for hundreds of years, without the locals grabbing a pitchfork, and placed him in New Orleans.

The CANDY MAN Delivery stories started as a sculptor of marble to find a magically ensnared man stuck in a fountain. After Randi Alexander asked me to join the Red Hot Valentine (Red Hot Authors) group, I changed the statue to chocolate and the other flavors flowed from there.

7) How many books do you ultimately have planned for ARCANE COURT?

I know the main plot lines for the next two books (4 & 5) – beyond that, I’m unsure. While I write down the main points for the books, my characters take control when I type in the details and we could end up with four or five more.

8)  What types of scenes do you enjoy writing the most (love, action, dialogue, etc) and why?

I love writing dialogue because I learn so much about characters by what the say and what they demand stays secret. And fight scenes! I love fight scenes.

9)  What was the most challenging thing about creating the series?

Cimmerian and Wretch fight demons two or three times in each book. I have to redo the fight scenes four and five times to make sure I accounted for all of the demons, and the subsequent body parts. In one scene, for Red Lady, I lost track of a demon (leaving him in midair) for a couple of rounds of edits.

10)  Has there been a specific moment in your career thus far that you are particularly proud of?

There hasn’t been a big ‘moment’ for me. I’m proud to be a part of the larger writing/reading/blogging community. I’ve made wonderful friends who completely get the book nerd in me.

11)  Is there anything special you’d like to say to your readers while we have you here today?

Thank you are two very tiny words that can hardly express the gratitude I feel for readers. Without you, my stories wouldn’t be complete. I write the words given to me by my characters, you interpret them based on your experiences and shine lights on aspects I couldn’t see without your help.

LITERAL ADDICTION:  Graylin, thank you SO much for being with us today. I really hope that I’ve turned some new readers on to your work, and I hope that people will go out, pick up, and love your books!

The kid wasn’t supposed to be real.
Back home, after her ordeal in New Zealand with Andrew, Neely McIntire has convinced herself the awful memories she cannot seem to shake are nothing more than bad dreams. But, when the picture of a child that could be her clone lands in her mailbox, everything she has fought to regain starts to crumble.
Even with the extra support from Hayden’s brother, Nathan, Neely is ready to break under the pressure that seems to be coming from all sides. Hayden wants to move their relationship to the next level. The Tribal Guard is stalking her. Worst of all, Andrew’s mother, Margarette, has given Neely an ultimatum: deliver her monster as promised or put everyone Neely loves at riskstarting with Hayden.
Drowning in secrets, Neely must convince Andrew to help her save the people she loves. But when Andrew introduces her to the child, Neely’s resolve wavers. Will she be able to sacrifice a child wearing her face? Or will she make the choice to save someone she never expected to love?
**This is the second of 3 books, it’s recommended that they be read in order to fully enjoy the experience of the story**

July, one year later
ANDREW HAD PURPOSELY CHOSEN THE HEAVYWEIGHT, padded envelope for this letter. A familiar ominous sensation squeezed his ribs tighter as he glanced in the rearview mirror at the child asleep in the car seat. This time, the band of tension around his ribs tightened with something new. Panic.
“I’m doing this for him. Lucas needs her,” he whispered to the face in the mirror, but that guy didn’t seem to believe the words. “Okay, so I need her too,” he admitted.
The phone screen went dark and hid the email from Masa. His warning that The Guard would be coming for them turned Andrew’s stomach sour.
As he opened the door the night air, heavy with brine, swirled into the car. He’d waited until midnight so no one would see. Now the building wasn’t just deserted, but full of a darkness that held secrets and fear. For his son, he’d walk through hell before giving up any chance to keep him safe. The car door clicked softly closed, and the lights flashed when he pressed the LOCK button on the key fob. Thankfully, Lucas didn’t stir.
The paper and Windex smell of the post office curdled his dinner. His stomach rolled with nausea, which caused sweat to bead on his forehead. His shoes squeaked louder with each step across the lobby’s slick tiles. As he opened the mail slot, it produced a startling squeal sounding enough like a scream that his heart thumped harder against his ribs. Half the envelope hung in the dark void but he couldn’t let go. Releasing the letter held wonderful and horrible possibilities. He swiped at the fresh goosebumps that crawled up the back of his neck, now slick with cold sweat
Will this hurt her more?
He’d already taken so much from Neely, all while professing love. Will this be one more on my very long list of sins?
The clouds covering the moon’s face swirled into wisps of mist, and moonlight brightened the room. He glanced over his shoulder as light splashed onto the car’s black paint and reflected silver. Beams spilled through the back glass and leached the brilliant red and gold away to transform the child’s hair into a white cloud of curls. Lucas slept on soundly, safe, close, perfectly adorable, and so much like her.
“My son needs his mother,” Andrew whispered, as the envelope hit with a thud against the bottom of the chute. “And I need Neely’s help.”
The shore road’s lights became a blurred stream of neon pinks and yellows on the drive home. Carrying Lucas into the house and tucking him into bed left Andrew with too much time to think about what he’d done.
He walked out onto the deck, closed his eyes, and inhaled. The salty air instantly energized his muscles and caressed that other side of his nature.
“I hope this is the right decision,” he whispered to the stars. The creation story his grandmother had told him came flooding back and his heart grew heavier with the memory of her warm smile.
“Somewhere in all that dark sky and water The Mother and The Father are parted,” Gran had whispered to him in the dark. “They are destined to forever mourn the loss of each other, giving the world light now at the cost of their separation.”
“Sacrifice,” he said softly as the echo of waves slapping the sand bounced off the house.
Will that be my fate?
He missed Gran terribly on nights like this. She’d been the only person in the world with the power to talk sense into his mother during his childhood. Gran had rescued him so many times from Margarette’s wild schemes.
How different would my life be now if she’d lived? But my Gran is dead, and now it’s my responsibility to keep Lucas safe from the real monster, his grandmother, Margarette.
A cold shiver ran down his spine at the thought of Margarette getting her hands on his son. He glanced toward the play of lights reflected by the nightlight onto the bedroom window and smiled. His phone buzzed against his thigh with another email. The bubble of peace he’d worked so hard to create for Lucas cracked a little more. His smile turned into a hard pinch of muscles in his face. There’s absolutely nothing I won’t do for Lucas.
He’d never anticipated what his desires might cost him when it had only been Neely’s love he wanted. Now the price he might have to pay for having fallen in love with her suddenly seemed very high. Especially every time Masa sent a new warning. His emails always came as kind of a shock. He’d known Masa his whole life as a family friend and never guessed he’d been so much more to Margarette. And now to him. Masa had shown more unconditional love as his biological father over the last year than Margarette ever had as his mother.
Andrew shoved his hands into his pockets and stepped off the deck onto the cooling sand. He stripped down to skin and sighed as the water covered his ankles. The moon hung heavy and full over the water. A trail of silver light glittered on the surface and called to that hidden part of his every cell. Energy from the crashing waves thrummed under his skin the deeper he walked into the water. Refueling, renewing, and soothing his soul with each lap against his body. Blessed Mother knows I need all the help I can get now. He thanked The Earth Mother and Tangaroa with a silent prayer for the sea’s gift as his head disappeared under the waves and he hoped that somewhere in all those stars and midnight, Gran might be proud of the man he’d been trying so hard to become.

There are secrets in even the smallest of towns…

Nerina Simpson fled the streets of New York City, hoping to find solace outside the small town of Talkeetna, Alaska. Physically scarred from a fire that claimed both her parents, Nerina keeps to herself while she tries to put the darkness of her life behind her.

When a winter storm forces her into town, she collides with Victor Canidae. An arrogant man who makes it no secret that he and everyone else in the town want her to leave.

Headstrong, and refusing to back down, Nerina finds herself in trouble when her two, four legged companions get lost in a storm, landing her in the path of an angry bear hell bent on taking her life. Until a mysterious white wolf comes to her rescue.

When she wakes up in a warm cave, the last person she expected to see is Victor. Stuck in a cave until the storm passes the two decide there is only one way to pass the time, and quickly when you’re getting physical.

***What happens in a cave stays in the cave….Right?***

The Reaping

The Reaping was supposed to be three trials. Three trials, Victor Canidae had to complete and in doing so–he’d successfully earn Nerina Simpson as his mate.

Three Trials. For him only.

But the Goddess Selene has plans of her own. Plans that are far reaching and affect not only Pack Canidae, but Clan Denali. A concern that has all of the Northern territory pulling out their claws.

The council all agree, Nerina is not the answer, in turn, bringing back insecurities and concerns, Victor thought long buried. But with this new twist in the mix, there’s only three things either of them can do.

Face their fears,

Face each other.

And above all, do not fail.

Sound great, right!? Make sure to check them, and the rest of Tigris’s backlist out right away. She has a little bit for everybody—Contemporary, Sci-Fi, Dystopian, Paranormal…

For the rest of today, though. Let’s see what happened when I met up with the stars of The Reaping when they came to visit south Florida…


I had the rare chance to sit down with Nerina Simpson and Victor Canidae, Alpha and Luna of Pack Canidae. They’d flown into Florida from Alaska. A vacation following their successes with the Reaping and the Trials (more on that later).

Since I was hosting their good friend Tigris Eden on LITERAL ADDICTION, I wanted to sit down and chat with them a bit so Tigris’s fans and readers could learn a little bit more.

Let me recap our wonderful day at my favorite little spot down at Deerfield Beach pier (I figured we’d go to the beach since I’d be spending time with Tigris at the beach in February at the Coastal Magic Convention).


It was a sweltering 85 degrees. Yes, at 8AM, at the end of September. Welcome to south Florida! I woke up early, got ready with much excitement, jumped in the Jeep and made my way about twenty minutes north to the beach.

The morning was perfect, actually. The sun was high in the sky with just the right amount of clouds for some relief; the waves were lapping languorously at the shore, the sound of their advance and retreat almost hypnotic. I lugged the beach chairs and picnic basket out of the Jeep and made my trek to the spot near the pier where I had told the couple I would be waiting for them. They had gotten in the night before and were staying at a hotel just down the road. I told them to take their time coming to me, that I would be waiting for them whenever they arrived. After all, I knew they were still technically new to their love, and I wasn’t about to keep them from enjoying some alone time away from the Packs. If you know what I mean… ;-)

About a half an hour later, around 10AM, I heard feminine laughter and a rumbling male voice to my left. I glanced over and saw a striking couple laughing with each other. The woman pushed the man playfully, and he skipped ahead and swatted her on the ass as she tried to run away. I knew immediately that my guests had arrived.

I stood up and waved, catching Victor’s attention. I had told them that they couldn’t miss me—what with my bright pink hair and all.

The couple linked hands and made their way to where I had set up our conversation spot. The first thing that struck me was how handsome Victor was. Eyes the color of emeralds and chiseled features. Nerina was beautiful. Her eyes were the color of my favorite Jack Daniels, and she had a smile that could light up the coldest corner of the world.

I held out my hand immediately to Nerina and introduced myself.

“Hi, I’m Chelle. I’m so happy you two could make it. Thank you so much for coming to talk with me today! How was your trip?”

“The trip was a little nerve wracking but so worth it! It’s freezing cold in Alaska. The flight was overbooked and because of that, Vic here was a bit of a grump. Can I just say your hair is killer.”

I turned my attention to Victor and held out my hand to him, as well. “Both of you. So good to meet you both. Though I guess you’re a ‘both’—or is that a many—yourself.” I laughed. “Tell Menes I said ‘hi.” The man carried a Warrior inside of him along with his wolf. He was a very complex male…

“Hi, Chelle. Menes extends his greeting as well.”

I waved the couple to the chairs I had set up in the sand. “Please, have a seat. Would you like a mimosa? I brought mimosas, some fresh fruit, and some killer Cuban pastries.”

Nerina looked over at Victor with a grin on her face. “Chelle, I would love a drink. Vic here probably won’t partake, as you can see he’s already scanning, looking for suspects. He’s crabby that way.”

“Neri, I’m not crabby, and I’ll take some of the pastries, Red, my mate here likes exaggerate the state of play. I’ve got eyes on the beach.”

I grinned to myself. Red. He’d given me a nickname. I loved it!

We sat down, I poured us some drinks, handed out the guava pastries, and we just took a moment to sit in comfortable silence while we enjoyed the weather and the treats.

“I really do appreciate you taking time out of your vacation to talk with me. I know my readers will be thrilled to hear some more about you guys.”

Victor grunted. “This was a forced vacation. We have a lot going on back home.” His face softened as he looked over at Nerina. “But, Neri’s right, we needed to come. It’s a way to remind us exactly what we’re fighting for.”

Nerina nodded in agreement, and continued to sip from her drink. “This totally hit the spot!”

“So, I know a little bit from Tigris, but how did you two meet? 

“Well, I was minding my own business, or at least trying to. I was in hiding,” Nerina said as she took another sip of her drink. “My father, as you know, is the crime boss of the Civiti family, and just so happens to be the OG Vampire of lore, or Hunters as we call them. Anyway, Vic and I had instant dislike towards each other, and some serious attraction. I’d like to blame it on isolation. Being cooped up on that mountain for six months, and then seeing this tall drink of water, what’s a girl to do right? But wrong. He was a rude, arrogant, bastard. So I had to put him in his place.”

Victor had the workings of a grin on his face.

“Neri, your story is filled with holes. You forget I saved you from a bear attack.”

“Yeah, a bear attack where you sequestered me away in a cave, and then had your way with me.”

Victor eyed Nerina with an arch in his brow. “Woman, I don’t recall you complaining at all. Red, the thing is, my kind are very selective when it comes to picking mates, and I was already set to be mated to someone else. That obviously changed once Neri came into the picture, and it took a lot to get past those hurdles, and since I am of three minds, literally, when all three clicked, it was a done deal. Menes wanted her, I wanted her, and my wolf wanted her. Anything before or after that is moot.”

“Yeah, that’s pretty much the way of it. He didn’t want to like me, and I didn’t want to like him, but it worked out in the end, and I have an almost mauling to thank for that. It’s not every day a couple can say if it wasn’t for that bear almost killing me, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”

Nerina leaned over to whisper to me, even though Victor could hear.

“Because, let me tell you, had that bear not attacked me, I wouldn’t have anything to do with Mr. Bossy over there.”

“Well, that’s not something you hear every day, is it?” I laughed. “Tigris mentioned to me the other day when we talked that you two just went through quite the harrowing experience. The Reaping and the Trials of Selene? What was that all about?”

“Can I take this one?” Nerina asked her mate.

Victor nodded.

“Okay, well, I can’t get into too much detail as that would be giving you a lot more insight than what the Pack would want an outsider to know, but basically it’s like this. The Trial of Selene is a test for the Luna to see if she’s worthy to bear the Silverback Alpha. There has only been one Silverback, and I’ve been chosen to bear the second. If I had to compare it to something, it would be like going into a mad house and coming out intact with your senses. There is one kicker, though—if I had died in the trial, I would have died in real life.  Which almost became a reality when I had to literally fight for my life. Totally sucked ass to hear that, but, I wasn’t about to let the Council have their way. The other benefit of the Trials, is that I now have a direct link to the goddess, Selene.  Which in a way is pretty fucking cool!”

Nerina took another sip of her drink and stole a bite of Victor’s pastry.

“As for the Reaping, same thing, but for Victor, he also had to endure the Alpha Strain, which you’re supposed to fight, and or kill for. It’s a way to show dominance to the Pack, as in their world, only the strongest can lead. I kind of screwed that part up for him, but it all worked out in the end. We both had three tests—facing ourselves, each other, and our fears. I think for Victor, it was harder, because one of his biggest fears was me and what I was, and what I’ve now become. For me, it was accepting myself as is and being comfortable in my own skin. Oh, and Vic would have died to if he’d not successfully completed the Reaping.  He totally was ready to throw down with the Pack for me. “

“Geez, you two are lucky to be alive. I certainly wouldn’t mess with a goddess and a pack of angry wolves. But your love is evident. It’s apparent you would literally walk through hell and back for each other. That’s amazing.”

“It was a cluster, but I can see how that could seem amazing. It was dangerous, and for a moment there I will fully admit to how lost I felt. I think Menes is the only one that stayed the course.” Victor commented, grabbing onto Nerina’s hand.  

“Ah, Vic, you’re getting mushy again.” Nerina smiled.

“How has life changed for the two of you now that you’re Alpha, Victor, and now that you’re a Hybrid, Nerina?”

“Still the same, but with a little more control. The Pack members are falling into line. There are still some who are skeptical, but they wouldn’t dare go against something decreed by Selene. Nerina is still finding that Pack politics can be a difficult road to traverse.”

Nerina interrupted. “Difficult? Try crazy! Chelle, we live in a mountain. A mountain! People are so close, I don’t’ even know what privacy is anymore. The children are great, but their mothers can be a pain in the ass, with all their questions. Some have even approached me about being second mate to Victor. Like, are you freaking kidding me!”

“It’s a social custom, Neri, and I already warned you that could happen.”

“Social custom my ass, they just want in on what’s mine. I swear, if I didn’t trust Victor, I’d be pulling my hair out. On the other hand, the Hybrid part is a bit tricky, Hunter’s blood and Werewolf blood are not compatible, so there are times when I don’t have a close grip on myself that the two will literally war with each other. Sometimes I even think I’m developing multiple personalities. But when I let go, well it’s a thing of beauty.  Right before we left, a couple of days ago, the women all went out hunting in their wolf form. Well, I can’t turn into a wolf, but I do get some of the attributes, and it was freeing being able to run that fast and separate the smells from one another. Hunters hone in on blood the beating of someone’s heart. They get high off of fear, sex, adrenaline.  Wolves hone in on everything. A way prey moves, how they run, all the different smells have an emotion tied to them. I was the one leading the females, and it was exhilarating and freeing, both sides of me were symbiotic. One destination, one outcome. Perfect.”

“Are you two ready to start a family right away, or are you going to wait a bit and let being Alpha and Luna of Pack Canidae sink in for a while and enjoy each other before you grow your family?”

“I wish I could say that we were waiting, but we’re on a time table to produce the next Silverback. Which is why this vacation couldn’t have come at a better time. It will give us the privacy we need to accomplish this goal, without everyone under the mountain knowing when we get it on.” Nerina said, truly annoyed at the fact that everyone could hear them when they made love.

“Okay, I know that Tigris has just written the story about your experiences with the Reaping for the two of you, so I don’t want to ruin too much for her readers. What do you guys say we do some fun questions?”

“Go for it.” Victor said.

“I’m game.” Nerina answered.

“What do the two of you love most about each other?”

“I love the way Victor cares for me.”

Victor looked at Nerina then and smiled. “I’ll always care for you, Neri. I love the way she says what’s on her mind. She never holds anything back.”

“What’s your biggest pet peeve about one another?”

“She’s stubborn.”

“He can be an asshole.”

They said at the same time.

“If you could pair match-make for anyone in the Packs, who would you want to set up and what kind of significant other would you want for them and why?”

“That’s easy! I would want to set up Colin, he’s such a ladies man! I want to see him knocked on his ass by love… Maybe even pair him with one of the females from Pack Sitka so Nanet would shut her mouth!”

Victor shook his head with laughter. “Neri, Colin is a breeder, it’s very rare for them to settle down, love. I’d like to see Blue settled down. He seriously needs to get laid, like yesterday. He’s strung so tight. He’s going batshit crazy now that he can’t be at his club.”

“If you could choose one word that describes your relationship, what would it be?”

“Spicy.” Nerina said, smiling wickedly at Victor.

“Unfailing.” Victor said with a hint of a growl as the word fell from his mouth.

“I know you guys are only here for another couple of days. What’s waiting for you when you back to Alaska?”

“A hot ass mess, Chelle, that’s what’s waiting for us. Thorn is in charge since we’re on our little vacation. I’m sure people are going to be throwing all kinds of fingers at us for even taking this trip. We still have to deal with dear old dad, who I know will come out of the wood works with some new scheme on how he can lay waste to all of us to get what he wants.”

Victor interrupted. “We have a lot of things we need to accomplish when we get back, but it will be dealt with, one issue at a time. The first thing I intend to tackle is getting us off the mountain and back in town. It will take some doing, but it will happen.”

“Amen to that!” Nerina piped in.

“Is there anything that you want to make sure I tell my readers about you or the Clan or the Packs while I have you here today?”

Nerina laughed, “Yeah, be sure to stop by and visit with Tigris and the rest of the amazing authors at Coastal Magic! They’re awesome! A huge shout out to Pam for winning Bites at the Beach!

“Is there anything you want me to tell Tigris the next time I talk to her?”

“Nope, Tigris is going to do what she does, although, I would like to tell her to next time choose a warmer climate, like oh, say, FLORIDA to drop a sister off at to hide from her lunatic Uncle and her not so dead father!”

Victor looked at Nerina and growled.

“I live in Alaska, Neri.”

“Yeah, but Tigris would have written about us in Florida instead, where it’s, oh, I don’t know, WARMER!”

“Alaska is fine with me Tigris; you can tell her that for me, Red.

The interview had gone better than I ever could have imagined and I was beaming from ear to ear. I turned my smile towards my new friends.

“Thank you both again. So much. You have no idea how much it means to be to have been able to sit down with you today. I really, really hope that you come back to Florida again sometime soon. Or maybe I’ll fly to Texas and you guys can fly in there so we can hang out with Tigris. I hope that you enjoy the rest of your vacation. Anything special planned?”

“Quiet time for me and Neri. That’s all we’re here for.”

“Sounds great to me!”

We finished the rest of the mimosas and just sat and enjoyed the surf and sun for a while until I had to leave to get some editing done. I didn’t want to cramp the happy couple’s style either. As I mentioned earlier, romance on the beach was something Nerina, Victor (and Menes) deserved! So I headed out and left them to enjoy their day, knowing that I had made two very good friends. I couldn’t wait to tell Tigris about my date on the beach with the Luna and Alpha.

Spotlight, Interview, Coastal Magic Convention Promo and Giveaway


Mari Mancusi

     *Formatted “pretty” post over on the Author Interviews page of the website!!

Hey, everyone!

LITERAL ADDICTION is thrilled to welcome the wonderful Mari Mancusi to the site today.

Mari Mancusi always wanted a dragon as a pet. Unfortunately the fire insurance premiums proved a bit too large and her house a bit too small–so she chose to write about them instead. Today she works as an award-winning young adult author and freelance television producer, for which she has won two Emmys.
When not writing about fanciful creatures of myth and legend, Mari enjoys goth clubbing, cosplay, snowboarding, watching cheesy (and scary) horror movies, and her favorite guilty pleasure—playing videogames. A graduate of Boston University, she lives in Austin, Texas with her husband Jacob, daughter Avalon, and their dog Mesquite.

Mari is pronounced like the name Mary. Mancusi is pronounced man-COO-see.
Keep up with Mari online at her Website, on Facebook, on Twitter, and on GoodReads.

Mari is the proud creator of the BLOOD COVEN VAMPIRES, FIRST KISS CLUB, TWISTED TIME, APOCOLYPSE LATER and SCORCHED novels. She is also now writing as Mari Madison and will be bringing us her EXCLUSIVE ROMANCE series very soon.

For those of you new to Mari’s work, let me give you a peek into the first book in each of her available series to get you caught up…

Boys That Bite

Add to your GoodReads Shelf
Buy from Amazon / B&N / iBooks / Kobo

Two sisters—as different as the sun and the rain. For one, getting into the Blood Coven is to die for. But for the other, getting out could be lethal…
When Sunny McDonald gets dragged to Club Fang by her twin sister Rayne, she doesn’t expect to find anything besides a bunch of Goth kids playing at being vampires. But when some guy mistakes Sunny for her dark-side-loving sister and bites her on the neck, she finds out that his fangs are real—and deadly.

Now, Sunny has less than a week to figure out how to reverse the bite, or else she’s going to end up as the perpetually undead. And not only will she be a vampire, she’ll also be bonded to Magnus—the bloodsucker who bit her—forever. And forever is a really long time…

Don’t leave me here… It starts with a whisper. At first Trinity thinks she’s going crazy. It wouldn’t be a big surprise—her grandpa firmly believes there’s a genuine dragon egg in their dusty little West Texas town. But this voice is real, and it’s begging for her protection. Even if no one else can hear it…


He’s come from a future scorched by dragonfire. His mission: Find the girl. Destroy the egg. Save the world.


He’s everything his twin brother Connor hates: cocky, undisciplined, and obsessed with saving dragons.

Trinity has no idea which brother to believe. All she has to go by is the voice in her head—a dragon that won’t be tamed.

Tomorrow Land

Can true love survive the zombie apocalypse?
Nineteen-year-old Peyton Anderson will never forget the day she was forced to make a choice–between her family–and Chris Parker, the boy she’d given her heart. Now four years later, as she steps out from the fallout shelter and into a zombie-infested world, he’s the only thing on her mind.
Thanks to her father Peyton is now built to survive: with razor tipped nails, ocular implants and cybernetics that make her stronger, faster, and able to protect herself in a world filled with monsters.
Yet all the weapons in the world can’t protect her heart when she runs into Chris again. The once sweet boy of her childhood has now grown into a tortured man–still furious at her for breaking his heart and never telling him why.

A Connecticut Fashionista in King Arthur’s Court

Add to your GoodReads Shelf

Buy from Amazon / B&N

When a modern fashion editor stumbles back into Camelot and falls in love with Lancelot, how will the history of King Arthur’s court change?

Once upon a time there lived an outspoken fashion editor named Kat, who certainly was not your typical damsel in distress. But when a gypsy curse sent her back in time to the days of King Arthur, she found she’d need every ounce of her 21st century wits (and pop culture references) to navigate the legend. After all, surviving a magical plot, an evil prince, and a case of mistaken identity - all without changing history or scuffing your Manolos - takes some doing!
Luckily, she’s got her very own knight in shining armor, Lancelot du Lac, on her side. The honorable-to-a-fault and devastatingly handsome champion insists on helping her out, even though she’s not quite sure she wants him to. After all, shouldn’t he be off romancing Queen Guenevere or something? Will Kat manage to stay out of trouble long enough to get back to her beloved lattes, cosmopolitans and cashmere? And what will Lancelot’s forbidden love mean for the kingdom of Camelot?

Just This Night

Coming 3/1/16!

Add to your GoodReads Shelf

Pre-Order from Amazon / B&N / iBooks / Kobo

First in a sexy series set in a TV newsroom—from a multi Emmy Award-winning TV producer.

At News 9 San Diego, the hottest stories happen off camera.
Betrayed and abandoned by his wife and left to raise their young daughter on his own, TV news photographer Jake “Mac” MacDonald has moved to San Diego for a fresh start. He’s sworn off women forever and devoted his life to his little girl. But when his brother-in-law drags him out to a night club, Mac can’t help but be drawn to the cute blonde who asks him to dance. Maybe he can make an exceptionfor just one night.
A hot fling is exactly what news reporter Elizabeth White had in mind when she brought Mac home. A quick cure to help her get over her ex-boyfriend. But things get awkward when her anonymous hookup turns out to be her newest colleague. Now they must put their attraction behind them and find a way to work together. But when someone starts sabotaging Beth’s career, she realizes Mac is the only one she can trust. And maybe their one night has the makings of an exclusive after all.

Sound great, right!? Make sure to check them out. For now, let’s see what Mari had to say when I sat down to chat with her…

Chelle – LITERAL ADDICTION:  Hi, Mari! I’m so excited to have you on LITERAL ADDICTION for an interview, and even more excited to see you again in February.

Mari: Thanks for having me! I am thrilled to get to go back to the Coastal Magic Convention as well! It was so much fun when I went a couple years ago.

Chelle – LITERAL ADDICTION: I generally always start with learning some things about our V.I.Ps, so let’s begin…

#1: Can you tell us 3 things—no matter how random—about yourself that we couldn’t find out easily on the Internet?

1)   I once hugged a chair made of stuffed pandas that cost $25,000.
2)   I once made sushi out of marshmallow peeps. (Best. Sushi. Ever.)
3)   My step-grandmother played Kim Hughes on the soap “As the World Turns” for thirty-something years. She also guest starred on the original Star Trek as the Empath. (Sadly she was one of the few female guest stars that did not end up making out with Captain Kirk.)

#2:  If you could spend the day with anyone—alive, dead, fictional—who would it be, and what would you want to do?

Mari: I’d go to Walt Disney World with Walt Disney himself. I’d love to see what he thought of all that has been done to the place since his death. I would also have him make the employees give us an underground tour of the tunnels and a sneak peek into the Cinderella castle hotel room. And let us skip the lines at Tower of Terror!

#3:   Can you walk us through a typical writing day for you? Anything you absolutely have to have with you to get the creative juices flowing?

Mari: I wake up at 6am every day to start writing. This stems from when I had a day job and was forced to write before work. I trained myself so well that now I still do my best writing at that part of the day. As for what I have to have—COFFEE, of course. And also I prefer a big monitor. I can only do so much from a laptop. Right now I have a 27-inch iMac that I love.

#4:  Since we’re going to the beach in February, which of your characters do you think we’d be most likely to find on the beach and what do you think they’d be doing?

Mari: My new romance series that launches in March is set in San Diego so my characters get to the beach a lot. In fact, my heroine, Beth lives in a little cottage off of Ocean Beach when the first book, JUST THIS NIGHT, begins and she and the hero have a little one-night stand there. (So we know what THEY are doing—wink, wink!) In the second book in the series, BREAK OF DAY, the hero is a surfer and he’d probably be trying to teach my heroine (who is afraid of water after a childhood tragedy) how to swim.

#5:  If we were to hop in your car or steal your phone, what do you think we’d be most likely to hear playing in your Music app?

Mari: Eighties new wave. The Cure, Depeche Mode, New Order…

#6:  See, I knew there were multiple reasons I liked you!! :) Was there any specific inspiration behind the creation of the SCORCHED series?

Mari: I wanted to do a dragon book that wasn’t set in some far away fantasy kingdom. I wanted to imagine what it’d be like if dragons were introduced to our present day world. (They would so end up on YouTube, right?) I’d seen a cool movie called Reign of Fire which takes place in a dragon apocalyptic future and thought—what if people from that future could come back in time (like they did in Terminator) to try to stop the dragon apocalypse? Thus the seed for Scorched was born.

#7:  What about your BLOOD COVEN and APOCALYPSE LATER novels?

Mari: The Blood Coven Vampire series was definitely inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer. At the time I wrote it, Twilight hadn’t yet become a thing but I noticed a lot of adults were reading vampire romances and I thought maybe teens would like them as well. (Turns out, yes!) But I wanted to do something more than just your typical brooding fanged romance. I wanted the series to have “bite”, pardon the pun. So there’s a lot of humor and snappy dialog, which is totally dedicated to Joss Whedon.
As for Apocalypse Later’s Tomorrow Land and Alternity, both those books were originally published as part of the SHOMI line that the now-defunct Dorchester had introduced. (Original titles were Razor Girl and Moongazer.) They were meant to be kind of “new adult” before the term was coined—having cool manga-inspired covers and younger characters to try to bridge the gap between young adult and adult romance. They were so much fun to write and there were a lot of dedicated fans of the SHOMI line. So when Dorchester went out of business and I got the rights back, I decided to republish them myself. Razor Girl was inspired by my love of zombie movies and is kind of Walking Dead meets Disney World. And Alternity is inspired by my love for videogames and sci-fi movies like The Matrix, Total Recall, etc.

#8:  I know that the series have wrapped up for the most part, but rumor has it, you have another YOU out there bringing us some goodness. Can you tell us a little bit more about Mari Madison and what she has to offer your fans?

Mari: As I hinted above (and as you spotlighted), I have a new series coming out from Berkley/Penguin Random House in March called “An Exclusive Romance.” The books take place in a San Diego TV newsroomwhere the news is hot and the guys are even hotter. J I used to work in a TV newsroom for many years so it’s a setting I know well. And I also know firsthand how much drama and romance happens when the cameras stop rolling. The first book, JUST THIS NIGHT, is about a young, ambitious reporter and a hot single dad photographer. It has dueling first person narration and is both sweet and sexy and funny. I’m really excited about this new series and hope people love Beth and Mac as much as I do!

#9:  Anything else you’d like to be sure and let our readers know about while I have you here—signings, anthologies, etc?

Mari: In addition to the adult romance, I also have something coming out for younger readers –my first official middle grade novel called GOLDEN GIRL which is about a girl training to be an Olympic snowboarder. It was a lot of fun to write—especially since I don’t get to snowboard much anymore, now that I live in Texas.

#10:  Anything you would like to say to our readers while we have you here today?

Mari:  Can’t wait for Coastal Magic!! It’s such a great convention and the beachfront hotel is amazing.  I’m just hoping it doesn’t rain this year—like it did the year I went. Still, even if it does, the authors and readers are so much fun—it’s bound to be a blast.

O.K, rapid-fire… Go.

[Archive] #CMCon16 Bite At The Beach Contest Notification

Hello, everyone.

I have some super cool to announce to you all…

LITERAL ADDICTION has teamed up some incredible authors as part of a super, SUPER cool prize pack being offered. Tigris Eden is offering up a paid registration to Coastal Magic Convention 2016, as well as dinner and drinks at Sloppy Joes with her, Larissa Ione, Jocelynn Drake, Dianna Love, Hildie McQueen, Chudney Thomas and Charity and I (Your Bewitching Bella and Pack Alpha)!

Entry is easy. Just fill out the Rafflecopter on our Coastal Magic Featured Authors page between now and 9/14.

But while I have you here, let me tell you a little bit about these amazing ladies and Coastal Magic.

Tigris Eden

One of Tigris’ fondest memories, was in the sixth grade, when her teacher read her story, “The Case of The Missing Pepperoni”, out loud to the class. It was then she decided she wanted to be a writer when she grew up. But like all childhood dreams, reality has a way of crashing in and disrupting plans. But her imagination and the voices inside her head never stopped talking. Every dream she could remember was jotted down in her dream journals.

When she’s not writing Tigris marvel’s at life’s gifts. She likes to take pictures of beautiful things. She openly admits that what she may find beautiful another person might not, and she’s perfectly okay with that. She enjoys her music and doesn’t leave home without it. Long pillow conversations with LL about nonsensical things, and hanging out with her boys, when they deem her “cool enough.”

Tigris is a military brat who’s done her fair share of travelling, thanks to her Army father. She’s married to the infamous LL and has three boys. She currently resides in Houston and is actively seeking a book-buddy for the end of the world.

Check out Tigris’s SHADOW UNIT, NEW EARTH, ARCTIC WOLVES, and V VICES series. She’s also a part of the ROMANTIC TALES: BEDTIME STORIES series.

You can keep up with Tigris on GoodReads, Twitter, Facebook, and at her website.

Larissa Ione

Air Force veteran Larissa Ione traded in a career as a meteorologist to pursue her passion of writing. She has since published dozens of books, hit several bestseller lists, including the New York Times and USA Today, and has been nominated for a RITA award. She now spends her days in pajamas with her computer, strong coffee, and supernatural worlds. She believes in celebrating everything, and would never be caught without a bottle of Champagne chilling in the fridgejust in case. She currently lives in Wisconsin with her U.S. Coast Guard husband, her teenage son, a rescue cat named Vegas, and her very own hellhound, a King Shepherd named Hexe.


Keep up with Larissa online at her Website, on GoodReads, on Facebook and on Twitter.

Jocelynn Drake

Love comes in many varied forms. There is the love of family, love of country, and love of chocolate.

But for Jocelynn Drake, one truly treasured love is the love of a good story. This former Midwestern native now left to sweat in the South Florida sun spends the majority of her time lost in the strong embrace of a good book. When she’s not hammering away at her keyboard, frowning at her monitor, or curled up with a book, she can usually be found cuddling with her cat Demona, walking her dog Max, or flinging curses at the TV while playing a video game.

Outside of books, pets, and video games, she is completely enamored of Bruce Wayne, Ezio Auditore, travel, tattoos, explosions, fast cars, and Anthony Bourdain (but only when he’s feeling really cranky).

Make sure to check out Jocelynn’s DARK DAYS and ASYLUM TALES and HIDDEN LONDON series (as Joy Douglass).

Find Jocelynn on the web on her Website, on Facebook, on GoodReads and on Twitter.

Dianna Love

New York Times best seller Dianna Love always liked to do things bigand still does. After spending many years traveling across country to create unusual marketing projects for Fortune 500 company, she’s now released her energetic muse on creating high-octane romantic thriller stories and urban fantasy. Her first book won the prestigious RITA® Award (as Dianna Love Snell) and she now has a new Slye Temp romantic thriller series with the most recent being DECEPTIVE TREASURES. Dianna also writes the NYT Bestselling Belador urban fantasy series, the Red Moon YA series (as Micah Caida), and the Riley Walker series.

When not speaking at national and international events throughout the year, Dianna lives in the metro Atlanta area with her motorcycle-instructor husband and a tank full of unruly saltwater fish named after celebrities. For more on Dianna visit and visit her on Facebook, on Twitter, and on GoodReads.

Hildie McQueen

Hildie writes Historical Western Romance as well as Paranormal Romance, with a touch of Historical here and there. She’s also published eight Highlander Historical Erotic short stories. She’s a member of Romance Writers of America, as well as Georgia Romance Writers and Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal Chapters of RWA.

For fun she spends a lot of time with her girlfriends. Her wonderful hubby is her partner in crime for traveling. They love to jump in the car or sometimes his motorcycle and head to the mountains, the city or the beach.


Find Hildie online at her website, on Facebook, on Twitter, and on GoodReads

Chudney Thomas

Chudney was born in Brooklyn New York, raised on the island of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. According to her father, she learned to read at three and wouldn’t allow him to skip a page of a story. She grew up raiding her mother’s stash of books and her Aunt Patsy’s extensive library. There, she developed her love of literature, and specifically romance.

Books transported her to different worlds, and encouraged her to learn about different cultures, continents, expanding her horizons. She currently lives in Central Florida with her family and their interesting pet pooch Maya.

Check out Chudney’s CENTRAL FLORIDA PACK series (nominated for outstanding debut author in paranormal romance), and keep up with her online at her Website, on Facebook, on Twitter, and on GoodReads.

Helllllo everybody!

It is my very great pleasure to welcome the wonderful Deanna Chase back to the site today!

Deanna is a native Californian. After spending five years traveling in an RV, she and her husband moved into an adorable cottage in a small town outside of New Orleans. After about six months, Deanna was convinced their 1907 home was haunted. Late at night as she penned Haunted on Bourbon Street, she often heard footsteps throughout the old house. Luckily, the spirit appears to be harmless, as he/she has never done more than make a little noise and possibly smoke a few cigars. However, if the ghost ever shows up in a dream, you’ll be the first to hear of it. Smudge stick anyone?

When she isn’t writing, she is often goofing off with her husband in New Orleans, playing with her two shihtzu dogs, and making glass beads.

To see Deanna’s bead creations, check out her other website and Etsy. You can keep up with Deanna online atFacebook, Twitter, and GoodReads, as well.

If you’re not familiar with Deanna’s work, she’s the proud creator of the Jade Calhoun, Coven Pointe, Pyper Rayne, and Crescent City Fae Urban Fantasy Romance series, and the Destiny New Adult Romance novels.

Let me spotlight the first book in each of her amazing main series as well as any new releases and tell you where you can get the rest. I HIGHLY recommend Deanna’s work. I’m a huge, huge fan!!

Haunted on Bourbon Street

From USA Today bestselling author, Deanna Chase, the first book in the Jade Calhoun series. HAUNTED ON BOURBON STREET Jade loves her new apartment–until a ghost joins her in the shower. When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn’t count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and developing feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord. Being an empath has never been easy on Jade’s relationships. It’s no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it’s up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her. Except she’ll need Kane’s help–and he’s betrayed her with a secret of his own–to do it. Can she find a way to trust him and herself before Pyper is lost?

Buy from Amazon / B&N / iBooks / Kobo / Other

From New York Times bestselling author Deanna Chase, the first book in the Pyper Rayne series (a spin-off of the Jade Calhoun Series).

All Pyper Rayne—medium and coffee shop owner—wanted was the perfect vintage dress. What she got was a dead shop owner and a sexy ghost who’s suddenly everywhere—at her shop, in her car, and even lounging in her bedroom. But he’s not just any ghost. He’s a witch and able to appear in solid form…sometimes. If only he’d stop disappearing on her.

And Pyper needs his help. When she becomes target numerouno and the prime suspect in the shop owner’s death, it appears her ghost holds the key to solving the murder. In between stolen kisses, Pyper will need to get to the bottom of all of his secrets if she wants to stay alive and out of jail…and maybe finally get that date he keeps promising her.

Influential Magic

Buy from Amazon / B&N / iBooks / Kobo / Other

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author, Deanna Chase, brings you the first book in the Crescent City Fae series.

It’s tough being a faery in New Orleans, a city fraught with vampires… especially when their very existence drains your life-force.

Willow Rhoswen, owner of The Fated Cupcake and part-time vampire hunter for the Void is having a rough week. Four years after her twin brother’s mysterious death, Willow’s life is threatened and the director saddles her with a new partner—her ex-boyfriend, David. To her horror, he’s turned vamp, which causes her physical pain whenever she touches him… and any other specimen of the undead.

In order to save Willow’s life, David agrees to turn double agent against the most powerful vampire organization in New Orleans. Or so he says. And she’s convinced they know something about her brother’s death. Unsure where David’s loyalties lie, she turns to Talisen, her childhood crush, to help her solve the mystery.

Caught between two gorgeous men and a director who’ll stop at nothing to control Willow’s gifts, she’ll have to follow her instincts and learn who to trust. Otherwise, she risks losing more than just her life.

Defining Destiny


Add to GoodReads Shelf

Buy from Amazon / B&N / iBooks / Kobo / Other

From USA Today bestselling author, Deanna Chase, the first book in the Destiny series.

When destiny fails…

Singer-songwriter Lucy Moore thought her life was perfect. At just twenty-one, she’s already met her soul mate and together they’ve landed a recording contract. But when her father dies and the love of her life betrays her in more ways than one, she returns home to pick up the pieces. On the shores of Mendocino, California, Lucy has some decisions to make. Should she start a solo career? Or should she leave it all behind for some semblance of normalcy in the quiet town she grew up in? And what about Seth, the tortured artist who always seems to be there when she needs him?

Seth Keenan has demons of his own. Eighteen months ago, he was involved in a horrific accident that he never talks about. His career as an accomplished oil-paint artist has been abandoned, replaced by the buzz of his tattoo gun. And women–well, he never sticks around for longer than a few hours of pleasure… until he meets Lucy. After one evening of listening to her seductive voice, he’s pulled under. But what about the vow he made to never get close to anyone again?

In a world where everyone has one true soul mate, can these two find love in the arms of each other?

Check out the other book in the DESTINY series!

Don’t they sound fantastic!!? They so, SO are! For the rest of today, though. Let’s talk with Deanna bit…


Chelle – LITERAL ADDICTION:  Hi, Deanna! I’m so excited to have you back on LITERAL ADDICTION and even more excited to finally meet you in February. When I suggested Jennifer contact you, I was thrilled to see that you had joined the CMC family. :)

Deanna:  Hi, Chelle. It’s great to be back here. I feel like I haven’t been out of my cave in months. Busy, busy here at Casa Chase. A beach vacation in February sounds like just what the doctor ordered.

Chelle – LITERAL ADDICTION:  We’ve done a couple of interviews with you already, so I’ll ask a few questions about the new books, but I thought we’d keep this interview fresh and fun with some questions about the beach—seeing as we’ll be hanging out on the beach in February. Good with you?

#1: What’s the best beach vacation you’ve ever taken?

Deanna: Hmm, well the best beach vacation might be my first “date” with my husband. He won a free trip to Cancun and took me. Just friends! I swear. Stop laughing. It’s true. We had a great time and a few weeks later we started dating for real.

#2:  Which of your characters (or groups of characters) can you most see hanging out on the beach and what do you think they’d do?

Deanna:  Well that’s easy. Lucy and Seth from Defining Destiny. Lucy would be playing the guitar and singing, while Seth would be painting. Or they’d be having a bon fire with their friends.
I’m not sure I see Jade at the beach. Now Pyper would be interesting. *Makes note to put Pyper on the beach*

#3:   Sunrise on the beach, or sunset at the beach and why?

Deanna:  Sunset. With wine. No one should ever be awake at sunrise unless she’s still parting from the night before. Also the sun should always set over the ocean. This means sunset at the beach on the west coast. Sorry east coasters. I just can’t get used to the sun setting over land.

#4:  If you were stranded on your own private beach paradise but with limited resources (assuming the necessities were covered) what would you want to have with you?

Deanna:  The internet. I might…okay, and totally addicted. I also need my dogs. Two shihtzus. And a spa tub. Those are easy to pack, right?

#5:  If you could write a short story about your characters taking a tropical vacation, what do you think it’d be called?

Deanna:  Oh, a title. Hard question. How about Spirits, Daiquiris, and a Missing Coconut Bra?

#6:  O.K, the last time we talked you had the Jade Calhoun and Crescent City Fae series. Now, there’s Pyper Rayne and your New Adult series, as well. Can you tell us a little bit more about the new work?

Deanna:  I’d love to. Pyper Rayne is a spinoff of Jade Calhoun. She sees dead people. And she spunky and totally fun to write. Her books are paranormal mysteries with a touch of romance.
The Destiny series is a new adult series that is more magical realism than paranormal. In that series everyone has one true soul mate and when the two get together they have a magical ability. The twist is that even though there are soul mates, it doesn’t always mean soul mates should be together. And that is exactly what Defining Destiny is about—What happens when your soul mate isn’t a good person and is ultimately damaging to be around? How does one move on from that?

#7:  I know you’re super busy writing the 2nd Pyper Rayne book, and I think you just finished one up last month, as well. What will you have for us to drool over at the Con in February (or for those not going, things they can pick up at their favorite eRetailer)?

Deanna:  Bewitched on Bourbon Street (Jade Book 7) is coming out very, very soon. Before the end of this month if I have anything to say about it. It’s in final edits now.
Spirits, Rock Stars, and a Midnight Chocolate Bar (Pyper book 2) is coming in November.
And hopefully, fingers crossed, I’ll have Pyper book 3 by Feb. But no promises.

#8:  Anything else you’d like to be sure and let our readers know about while I have you here (before we do some rapid-fire fun questions)?

Deanna:  I have a pen name! Under the name Kenzie Cox I write shifter novellas. It’s a fun little break between my longer books. They are sexy, short reads. If you’re into that sort of thing, you might want to check them out.

O.K, rapid-fire… Go.
Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate
Star Wars or Star Trek? Wars
DC or Marvel? DC
Vampires or Shifters? BOTH!
True Crime TV or Reality TV? Reality.
HBO or Showtime? Showtime
Kindle or Nook? Kindle
Cats or Dogs? Dogs
Morning or Nighttime? Nighttime
Coffee or Tea? Coffee. Lattes especially.

Chelle – LITERAL ADDICTION:  Deanna, thank you so much for having some fun with us today and I am so, SO excited to see you in a handful of months. :)

Deanna:  Thank you! I’m so looking forward to seeing everyone in Florida.

[Archive] Spotlight, Interview and Giveaway for #CMCon16 Featured Author Jennifer Estep_7.31.15



Coastal Magic Convention 2016 Featured Author Spotlight

Book spotlight, Interview and Giveaway


Jennifer Estep

*Formatted post over on our Author Interviews page of the website!!

Hey, everyone! LITERAL ADDICTION is thrilled to welcome the ever-amazing Jennifer Estep back to our site today. This time, to celebrate the fact that she’s joining us in Daytona Beach, FL this winter at Coastal Magic.

Jennifer is a New York Times bestselling author, prowling the streets of her imagination in search of her next fantasy idea.

She writes the Elemental Assassin adult urban fantasy series for Pocket.

Jennifer also writes the Mythos Academy young adult urban fantasy series for Kensington.

And, she has a new series called Black Blade.


Website / Blog / Facebook / Twitter / Goodreads 

For those of you new to Jennifer’s work – where have you been? – I will spotlight the brand new Elemental Assassin release set for 7/28/15, and the Black Blade series, where the new installment is coming in October.

Spider’s Trap


Add to GoodReads Shelf

Pre-Order from Amazon / Amazon UK / Amazon Ca / B&N / Kobo / iBooks

The next thrilling book in Jennifer Estep’s New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling Elemental Assassin series—“an extraordinary series.…One of the most intriguing heroines in the genre” (Romantic Times Book Reviews).

Keep your friends close but your enemies within stabbing distance.

One important lesson I’ve learned in the assassination business is that to be the best you have to roll with the punches. Now that I’m queen of Ashland’s underworld—by default, not by choice—a lot more punches are being thrown my way. But I suppose that’s the price of victory for taking down some of the underworld’s top dogs. Good thing I have my Ice and Stone magic to help me survive my volatile new position. Just when I think things are finally settling down, someone tries to murder me during a hush-hush underworld meeting. But the real surprise is how strangely familiar my shadowy assailant seems to be.

My job is to maintain order among killers, crooks, and thieves, and soon I’m embroiled in a bloody game where the ability to keep secrets could be the greatest superpower of all. My enemies have all sharpened their knives and laid their traps, waiting for me to fall. But this Spider weaves her own webs of death…


Cold Burn of Magic


Released 4/28/15

Add to your GoodReads Shelf

Buy from Amazon / Amazon UK / Amazon Ca / B&N / Kobo / iBooks


It’s not as great as you’d think, living in a tourist town that’s known as “the most magical place in America.” Same boring high school, just twice as many monsters under the bridges and rival Families killing each other for power.

I try to keep out of it. I’ve got my mom’s bloodiron sword and my slightly illegal home in the basement of the municipal library. And a couple of Talents I try to keep quiet, including very light fingers and a way with a lock pick.

But then some nasty characters bring their Family feud into my friend’s pawn shop, and I have to make a call—get involved, or watch a cute guy die because I didn’t. I guess I made the wrong choice, because now I’m stuck putting everything on the line for Devon Sinclair. My mom was murdered because of the Families, and it looks like I’m going to end up just like her…

Dark Heart of Magic


Coming 10/27/15

Add to your GoodReads Shelf

Pre-Order from Amazon / Amazon UK / Amazon Ca / B&N / Kobo / iBooks


As a thief, I stick to the shadows as much as possible. But when the head of the Sinclair Family picks me to compete in the Tournament of Blades, there’s no escaping the spotlight—or the danger.

Even though he’s my competition, Devon Sinclair thinks I have the best shot of winning what’s supposed to be a friendly contest. But when the competitors start having mysterious “accidents”, it looks like someone will do anything to win—no matter who they hurt.

As if I didn’t have enough to worry about, mobster Victor Draconi is plotting against Devon and the rest of my friends, and someone’s going around Cloudburst Falls murdering monsters. One thing’s for sure. Sometimes, humans can be more monstrous than anything else …

They sound great, don’t they!!? Make sure you check out the rest of the Elemental Assassin series and the rest of Jennifer’s backlist, as well!!

LITERAL ADDICTION:  Since this is our official Coastal Magic Convention spotlight for Jennifer, and she’s so super busy right now, we’re keeping the number of questions down to just five. And because we’ve interviewed Jenn so many times on L.A and couldn’t think of any fun new questions, PLUS because we’ll be hanging out on the beach in February, I thought maybe I would make four of our five questions beach related just to see what she thinks…

1) What was the best beach you’ve ever visited and when?

Jennifer: One of the best beach vacations I ever took was when I was a teenager, and my cousins and I went to Tybee Island, near Savannah, Georgia. It was a really lovely beach, and we picked up all these cool seashells to bring home.

What we didn’t realize was that there were actually crabs in all those seashells. Somehow, they survived riding around in the heat for hours. When we opened our suitcases when we got back home, there were all these crabs crawling around in our clothes. LOL. I felt so sorry for the crabs, but it was a really memorable moment, and a time/vacation I will always remember.

2) Nook, Kindle, iPad, or the real deal for when you’re at the beach and why?

Jennifer: Definitely print books. Knowing my luck, I would get sand all over and inside my tablet and then probably drop it in the water. LOL. So print books all the way at the beach.

3) Which of your characters do you think would be the most likely to hang out on a beach, and what do you think would happen if they did?

Jennifer: I’ll say Finnegan Lane from my Elemental Assassin series. Finn is all about the fine things in life, so I could see him lounging on the beach at some fancy resort, sipping some fruity drink and just relaxing. Although knowing Finn, he would flirt with the wrong woman and get into some sort of trouble. I can see his relaxing day at the beach ending up with him being taken out to sea and dropped in the middle of the ocean. LOL.

4) Sunrise or sunset at the beach and why?

Jennifer: Sunset, because I hate getting up early.

5) Anything special you want to make sure we know about before we see you in February?

Jennifer: Folks can visit my website at or follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads for the latest news about my books.

Chelle:  Jennifer, thank you so much for stopping by LITERAL ADDICTION again. It’s always wonderful to have you and to tell readers about your amazing work. I cannot wait to finally meet you in February!!

Jennifer: Thanks! I appreciate you featuring me on your blog, and I’m looking forward to meeting you and everyone else at Coastal Magic. Happy reading, everyone! :)
