Excerpt:

“Oh, my God, what is this?” Quinn thought he’d died and gone to heaven when the taste of honey melted on his tongue. He looked down at the food he was eating and realized she’d baked a cake. A freaking honey cake. It was gone in two more bites. “I’ve never tasted anything so delicious in my life,” Quinn told her as he licked his lips clean. He eyed her container. “Aren’t you going to share?”

Paige hugged her cake to her breast and laughed. “Not going to happen, big boy,” she replied as she cut off a piece and placed it in her mouth, slowly pulling away the fork. She moaned and closed her eyes, savoring the taste. “So good.”

Quinn was on her in a flash, tossing away the container and dragging her down on the blanket in one coordinated move. He quickly spread her legs, settling himself between them with ease.

“Quinn!” Her hands grabbed his shoulders.

He grinned down at her shocked expression. “Don’t you know better than to tease a hungry bear with the smell of honey?” He bent down and licked her lips and savored the feel of her nails biting into his shoulders.

“There’s more cake in the bag.” Her voice was low and breathless, that same sex phone whisper that had his cock going from hard to a piece of fucking granite in ten seconds flat.

“That’s good to know, but that wasn’t the honey I was talking about.” He moved, dislodging her hands as he slid down her body.

“There’s honey,” he said, kissing the flesh revealed by the low bodice of her dress. He continued his downward path to the peak of her right breast. Taking one taunt bud in his mouth, he sucked it inside, again taking fabric and all as he had in the elevator, making her back arch and her hands fist in his hair. He hardened even more, thinking about her reaction to what he was about to do. He tugged his head from her grasp and her hands fell to her sides. He placed kisses along the rise of her belly, then sat back on his knees, looking at her splayed before him, a feast for him to devour. “And then there’s this honey.”

He put his hands under the hem of her dress that had ridden up past her knees. Giving the soft flesh a hard squeeze, he pushed the light fabric up. “I smell your want, Paige.”

Paige shivered as Quinn’s thumbs caressed the insides of her thighs as he pushed her dress out of the way. Yes, she wanted him. She wanted him more than she’d ever wanted a man. Knew she wanted him more than she’d ever want a man. It was no wonder he could smell her want. Moisture gathered between her thighs, soaking into her pink silk panties. Before she knew it, he’d pushed her dress up her thighs and over her panties.

She’d worn one of few matching lingerie sets she owned, a bra and panties in a dark shade of pink that bordered on red. Quinn lowered himself, his mouth urgently burning a trail from her knee to her throbbing pussy. She lost herself in the moment, the warm breeze wafting over her heated skin. The screech of the hawks above and the sounds of the city below faded away. There was nothing except this, this man.

Quinn bit the soft flesh on the inside of her right thigh, and then he was there, his mouth, covering her, his rough tongue licking, sucking her swollen clit through the silk fabric of her panties.

“So sweet, baby,” he murmured. “I want a deeper taste.” He leaned back and lifted her legs over one strong arm. Hooking a thumb beneath the waistband of her underwear, he had them down and off before she could say a word. “Now where was I.”

He lowered her legs back down to the blanket, then parted them, pushing her knees up and spreading her open for his pleasure.

Paige’s body trembled. She was so exposed. She knew she needed to protest, put her legs together. Blush. Something.


 

About the Author:

Like many, Marie Mason had always suspected the career that would make her happy would be something to do with writing. And like many, she managed for years to avoid any job connect with writing. Writing is something she has to do every day. It’s a calling, or should she say, it’s the characters calling, whispering…write about me, write about me.

Excerpt:

Shannon held her breath for a moment and waited for her mother to join her. A loud explosion erupted from the rear of her house. She started to run around to the side of the house, but huge flames were shooting outwards and upwards from the area where her back porch had been.

“Mom, Dad!” she screamed into the night.

Shannon couldn’t see anything in the wreckage and she almost caught herself on fire trying to get back into the house when a man’s arms grabbed her from behind.

“Stop!” he yelled in her ear. “The fire truck will be here any minute!”

Shannon tried to wrestle her way out of the man’s arms, but he held on to her tight and pulled her backwards away from the house.

A crowd started to form near the Opportunity Shop and the sound of sirens could be heard from where Shannon stood. They whined louder and louder until they appeared on the street before her house. It seemed like total chaos had broken out as the firemen raced with their hoses to the rear of the house.

Another fireman ran to the front of the neighbor’s house and attached the hose to the fire hydrant. In a few moments the men had a large fountain of water pointed at her back porch and they wrestled the snake of a hose in an effort to control the blaze.

The sheriff wasn’t very far behind and he arrived with the lights on the top of his car flashing. Thankfully, he had his siren off and the growing crowd moved to allow him to park his car close to the house.

“Where’s the O’Reillys?” he yelled to the fire chief above the chaos.

Shannon stared at him and knew he would be turning to face her any moment.

“I don’t know where the other two are,” and he nodded towards Shannon.

She knew the two men were talking about her parents. Her mind started to race and she thought it just wasn’t possible that they were actually in that fire. It wasn’t possible to have this many bad things happen in rapid succession.

The chief pointed at Shannon and the sheriff made eye contact with her. He purposefully strode up to her and the man who was now holding her close.

“I’ll take it from here Fred,” the Sheriff said.

The man who had been holding her was their next-door neighbor, Mr. Bickham. He slowly let go of her and turned away with tears filling his eyes. Shannon was left standing alone in the side yard of her house staring at the blaze as if in a trance.

“Shannon, what happened here?” the fire chief demanded, not quite believing himself that their house had exploded.

Shannon could only manage to shake her head. Tears slowly began to roll down her bright pink cheeks. The sheriff got down on one knee and took her hands in his.

“I’ll find someone to help, it’ll be okay,” he said unconvincingly.

A woman forced her way through the crowd and said boldly, “I’ll see to her.”

Shannon didn’t even bother looking up to see who her champion was. Nothing mattered anymore; she felt completely alone.

Myrtle Green helped Shannon to her car and buckled her into the front passenger seat. She knew not to ask Shannon any questions; there would be plenty of time for that later. They drove back to her house having not said a word.

Myrtle got out of the car and then went around to Shannon’s side and unbuckled her from the seat like a small child. She held out her hand and helped her out of the car. Shannon stared ahead blankly and allowed herself to be led through the now familiar gate and walkway up to the house.

The smell of cookies and chocolate still hung in the air when they opened the front door. Tears started rolling down Shannon’s face again when she realized it had only been a little while since she had left a happy little party in this house with her mother. Now her parents were gone and they weren’t going to come back. Ever.

Paranormal


the-history-major

“Cash intermingles beauty and violence …It’s smartly ambiguous and open to interpretation, and some may delight in a second (or third) read.” – Kirkus Reviews

After a vicious fight with her boyfriend followed by a night of heavy partying, college freshman Amanda Greene wakes up in her dorm room to find things are not the same as they were yesterday. She can’t quite put her finger on it. She’s sharing her room with a peculiar stranger. Amanda discovers she’s registered for classes she would never choose with people that are oddly familiar. An ominous shadow is stalking her. Uncomfortable memories are bubbling dangerously close to her fracturing world, propelling her to an inevitable collision between fantasy and reality. Is this the mother of all hangovers or is something bigger happening?

Excerpt:

She perused the vaguely familiar room, her mouth so dry it was actually painful.

Getting clumsily to her knees, she pulled herself onto the bed, closing her eyes against the bright glare from the drapeless window.

“You’ll be late,” an irritatingly cheerful voice warned. “Come on, lazybones. Time to get up.”

Amanda put a flattened pillow over her head shutting out the voice. Someone was pulling it.

“Manda,” she sang. “You don’t want to miss the first day!”

Amanda rolled over, snatching the pillow to hold it protectively over her abdomen. She heard the familiar melody of a nursery rhyme, one of her least favorite, The Muffin Man.

“Stop!” she snapped. She looked up groggily. Two faces swam before her, they wavered, then settled into a single image. Amanda studied the unfamiliar girl. “Do I know you?” Her voice was a rusty scrape.

The girl kept singing the irritating nursery rhyme. Her nasal contralto drifted into every nook and cranny of Amanda’s abused head, until her teeth drummed in time to the ditty. Amanda squeezed her eyes shut, holding her hands over her ears, the music growing louder, until it sounded as though it filled her brain.

She jumped up, bile rising from her stomach to bath the back of her throat. She swayed, her eyes searching to find something solid to latch onto to stop the movement. A wastebasket appeared under her face, the booze from the night before made a horrifying return appearance. Kind hands held her long auburn hair from the mess, while Amanda puked, and puked, then puked some more.

Why did she drink so much, she thought bitterly. What was she trying to prove? Patrick’s disappointed face swam before her eyes. She blinked hard, erasing his hurt hazel eyes and thinned lips. It wasn’t her fault, it wasn’t her fault at all. He started the whole thing, forcing her to chose her friends over him. It didn’t have to end up the way it did. She cursed softly.

A cold wet rag efficiently made it’s way across her face, the kind thoughts that niggled their way towards her bitter mouth evaporated when Mary Sunshine piped, “Feeling better?”

Amanda took the washcloth from the capable hands, snarling, “Enough.”

Interview:

Could you tell our readers a little bit about your writing journey? I STARTED WRITING SCREENPLAYS WHEN I WAS 15 YEARS OLD, AND CONTINUED WRITING THEM FOR MANY YEARS. I WAS SUBMITTING MANY OF THEM TO DIFFERENT PRODUCTION COMPANIES AND HAD MEETINGS WITH SOME BIG PRODUCERS OVER THE YEARS. THEN I STARTED TURNING MY SCRIPTS TO NOVELS AND BEGAN SELF-PUBLISHING. 14 BEST-SELLERS LATER, I NOW HAVE AN AWESOME LITERARY AGENT AND ENTERTAINMENT ATTORNEY WHO ARE TRYING TO GET MY BOOK MONSTERLAND INTO A NATIONAL PUBLISHER. THEY HAVE AN AGENCY IN LA WAITING IN THE WINGS TO SELL THE FILM RIGHTS. WHAT A RIDE IT’S BEEN!

How many books do you currently have published? 14, BUT I HAVE ABOUT 5 MORE FINISHED, WAITING TO GET PICKED UP.

What has been your favorite book to write so far? Why? IT’S LIKE CHOOSING CHILDREN, BUT IF I HAD TO PICK ONE, IT WAS MONSTERLAND. GOONIES AND JURASSIC PARK MEETS WEREWOLVES, VAMPIRES & ZOMBIES. WHAT WAS NOT TO LOVE. I REALLY ENJOYED BUILDING THE ENTIRE MONSTERLAND UNIVERSE.

Are you currently working on a book? Will this be your next release? I AM KNEE DEEP IN MONSTERLAND 2. I HAVE MONSTERLAND 3 AND 4 ALREADY BEAT OUT. I HAVE A COMPLETED BOOK CALLED DRAGGED DOWN DEEP – WHICH WILL PROBABLY BE MY NEXT RELEASE. THINK INDIANA JONES MEETS CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON.

What do you enjoy most about writing? THE FREEDOM TO SCULPT THE WORLD MY CHARACTERS LIVE IN. MY FAVORITE ASPECT OF WRITING ALL MY BOOKS IS ALWAYS BUILDING THEIR UNIVERSE. I TOOK A HUGE PAGE FROM THE MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE.

Have you ever had one of your characters to take a twist you weren’t expecting and surprise you? ALWAYS. WHEN I BEAT OUT MY STORIES I AM PRETTY CERTAIN I KNOW WHERE THE CHARACTER IS GOING. BUT SOMETIMES, WHILE WRITING THE SCRIPT AND FIGURING OUT WHAT MY CHARACTERS WANT, IT ALMOST ALWAYS TAKE A TURN THAT I NEVER THOUGHT WOULD BE THERE.

Which of your characters is your personal favorite? Least favorite? Why? I LOVED WRITING ALASTAIR IN WITCHES PROTECTION PROGRAM. HE WAS ALWAYS COOL, CALM AND COLLECTED AND TRIED TO HAVE TREMENDOUS PATIENCE FOR HIS NEW RECRUIT WES ROCKVILLE. EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER I WRITE IS AN ACTOR – AND ALASTAIR HAPPENED TO BE CHRISTOPH WALTZ. MY LEAST? THAT’S A TOUGH ONE BECAUSE I LOVE ALL MY CHARACTERS. I REALLY DON’T HAVE ONE I DIDN’T LIKE WRITING ABOUT. I DON’T LIKE ROMANTIC VAMPIRES, SO I TRIED TO MAKE THE VAMPIRES IN MY BOOK MONSTERLAND TOTAL ROCK STARS – WITH A HINT OF ROMANTIC INTENTIONS.

So far, what has been your favorite scene to write? MY FAVORITE SCENE IS THE BRIDGE SCENE IN WITCHES PROTECTION PROGRAM, HANDS DOWN. OH, AND PAUL FINDING ALLISON IN STILLWELL. AH! TOO MANY TO EVEN THINK OF.

What lessons have you learned since becoming a writer? Do you have any tips for new writers? DON’T WRITE WHAT YOU THINK HOLLYWOOD WANTS. WRITE WHAT IS IN YOUR HEART. I WAS CHASING BIG BUDGET IDEAS THAT DIDN’T REALLY AMOUNT TO MUCH. GO AGAINST THE GRAIN AND DO WHAT YOU FEEL IS RIGHT.

If you were to recommend your books to a stranger, which book would you advise them to start with? Why? IF THEY WANT A MALE ROM-COM – POKERGEIST. IF THEY ARE A HISTORY BUFF – THE HISTORY MAJOR. IF THEY WANT A DELICIOUS POPCORN TREAT – WITCHES PROTECTION PROGRAM. IF THEY WANT YOUNG ADULT – MONSTERLAND.

Do you have any extras you’d like to share, like a teaser about an upcoming new release, a summary of a deleted scene, or a teaser about a surprising plot twist or character? I HAVE A BOOK READY TO GO CALLED DRAGGED DOWN DEEP. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FASCINATED BY CRYPTOZOOLOGY. ONE NIGHT I WAS WATCHING CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON – AND THE IDEA OF A MODERN-DAY INDIANA JONES WITH A TATTOO SLEEVE CHASING A CREATURE THAT IS KILLING PEOPLE IN THE HAMPTONS.

Now it’s time to get to know you! What are some of your favorites to read? I ACTUALLY LOVE TO READ SPIRITUAL AND SELF-HELP BOOKS. NOTHING GETS ME MORE MOTIVATED TO LEARN ABOUT THE SUCCESS OF OTHERS. I LOVE READING BIOGRAPHIES AND SCREENPLAYS. TONS AND TONS OF SCREENPLAYS. I LOVE TO LEARN DIFFERENT WAYS HOW TO STRUCTURE A GOOD STORY AND THE ONLY WAY TO LEARN IS FROM THE MASTERS LIKE QUENTIN TARANTINO, CHARLIE KAUFMANN, BRIAN KOPPELMAN, ETC…

What about television shows? Movies? I DON’T WATCH ANY TV, EXCEPT FOR AN INDULGENCE EVERY NOW AND THEN LIKE DINERS, DRIVE-INS, AND DIVES. I AM A HUGE MOVIE BUFF. I TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN MY MOVIE COLLECTION. TOP FIVE FAVORITE MOVIES: 1. THERE WILL BE BLOOD. 2. ROUNDERS. 3. EMPIRE STRIKES BACK & LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY (TIED) 4. SCARFACE 5. THE REVENANT & MAD MAX FURY ROAD (TIED; NEWLY ADDED)

If you had to sum up your life as a writer in ten words, what would you say? GOOGLE, WIKIPEDIA, AND THE INTERNET – MY ABSOLUTELY AMAZING BEST FRIENDS.


Christian Fiction Feature: Hidden Thrones by Russ Scalzo @RussScalzo

Christian Fiction/Paranormal


hidden-thrones

A new award winning series from author Russ Scalzo. A supernatural thriller. A titanic clash between good and evil.

Jack Bennett has an unusual gift. His coveted ability means he is the FBI’s newest hire, serving as a consultant for their new Paranormal Division.
The government is convinced we are not alone in this world. With invisible forces all around, agencies are seeking how to harness that power for their own uses. The mystery swirling around the unseen and unknown has caused much speculation. Some suppose lost souls are wandering the earth, others believe deceased loved ones never truly moved on, and still there are those who are convinced that aliens have infiltrated our world.

Jack Bennett knows better. He knows who and what these powers are. The ancient scriptures talk about a great evil that was conceived in the depths of eternity. There, a great war occurred in a place called Heaven. Lucifer, the ancient serpent, the evil dragon of folklore, was cast out and bound to the earth and confined to its surrounding atmosphere.

Could it be that the evil we see is inspired by a dark kingdom, a demonic spiritual force at war with the human race? Could these princes and rulers of darkness be influencing our world today? Jack Bennett knows this is the truth. He knows because he encounters them every day.

Follow Jack Bennett in the first of a five part series as he battles the realm of Hidden Thrones.

Praise for Hidden Thrones:
“Spirit-filled fiction in a political thriller, what a treat!” David Bergsland of Reality Calling.
“This book was great! Action and intrigue right from the beginning and with a bit of romance thrown in.”
“I loved this book! It was exciting and thought-provoking.”
“What a suspenseful Christian novel this is. It is very much in the category of Frank Peretti’s “This Present Darkness” novel.”

Excerpt:

The front room was dark except for the moonlight streaming through the broken glass of the windows. It was difficult to see much of anything except shadows of old furniture and pictures that still hung over the fireplace, just as the Oslow’s had left it thirty years ago. Louise laid the blanket on the floor and began to take her shirt off. Tom followed. It was clear that they planned on going for it right in the old house, defying every story they had been told. Arrogance was their forte. The two fell to the floor and embraced feverishly and passionately. Suddenly, Tom thought he heard the sound of footsteps coming down the stairs from the second floor and turned his head to see what it was. Looking puzzled, Louise said, “Come on, babe. What’s wrong?”

Then she heard it too. They both jumped to their feet. Tom looked up and saw a tall, dark figure coming down the steps. Louise stepped back and let out a blood-curdling scream. Tom looked for something to use as a weapon and, grabbing the fireplace poker, he stepped in front of Louise as they both began to move slowly backwards toward the door.

The figure stopped at the lower landing and spoke. “Well, look who we have here. I know you two very well,” it said in a voice so low and imposing that it shook Tom and Louise to the very core.

“You don’t know us!” Louise shouted nervously, her voice beginning to shake. Not knowing where the voice even came from, she held on tighter to Tom.

“Oh, but I do, Tom Stockshire and Louise Crowder. I’ve been watching you for some time. You’re in _my_ house now.”

Though scared out of his mind, Tom still had enough arrogance to shout, “Oh yeah? Then come and get us, jackass!”

The figure moved at Tom without touching the ground. In less than a second, it was in Tom’s face. Tom swung the iron fire poker at the figure, but it passed right through it. Tom’s eyes widened and sweat emptied from every pore of his body.

Louise screamed again and ran to the door, shouting at Tom, “What are you doing? Run!”At that moment, Tom felt himself lifting off the ground, still flailing away at the dark figure in vain. Stunned, Louise bolted out the door and began to run for the car. The creature let out a roar like a lion and flung Tom head first into the brick wall above the fireplace. His body fell lifelessly to the floor. The creature moved to the door, looked out toward Louise, and let out a sound so awful that it even shook the surrounding trees. Louise got to the car, opened the door, and began frantically locking every door by hand. Searching for the keys, she stopped and realized in a moment of disbelief and despair that Tom had them in his pocket.
