identity(1)

The world as I know it is over…

When I went to work that afternoon I never imagined that everyone around me would die. But that’s exactly what happened. My small town of Pleasant, LA is now a dead zone, and I’m only one of a few survivors.

The streets are littered with the dead, but they don’t remain down for long. We managed to find a few more survivors, including my sexy next door neighbor. It’s not enough. But out of the darkness, Kellan comes. And in the glare of his headlights I realize we might just have a chance.

A chance to make it out of the zombie horde.

A chance to live some semblance of a normal life.

A chance to love…

She’s desperate to return to her own time, and she will do whatever it takes to make it happen–even if it means allowing herself to be seduced.

message bearer‘You were drawn. I can see it. You are Latent.’

For reasons unknown, Seb is constantly drawn to random places without meaning, following an instinct he doesn’t understand.

One night that instinct lands him in trouble when he encounters Sarah, a young woman hunted by a fiend born of nightmares. Against his better judgement Seb attempts to intervene, only to nearly get himself killed in the process. Before she passes, Sarah transfers something to him, an arcane knowledge that gets buried deep into his subconscious.

Rescued by the Brotherhood warrior Cade, Seb’s life takes on an unexpected turn when he is told he is a Latent, able to manipulate the very energies of reality to his own devices. He is brought into a world within our own where the Magistry and its allies engage with the demonic Sheol in a timeless conflict that has traversed entire universes.

A world where he, and he alone, carries the message that could change the course of the conflict forever.

Excerpt:

As usual a strange kind of instinct guided Seb. It always began as a gnawing tingle at the back of his mind, like an internal sat nav that drew him to another seemingly random location. He must’ve easily covered twenty miles that night, starting at the Pleasure Beach, where the masses knocked back a mixture of cheap rides and greasy food with abandon, right down to the promenade, before finally ending up here, at what had once been a church, but where now stood a ruined shell plastered in rotting boards.

He took a moment to admire the view, ignoring the sensation of cold rain on his skin. The church stood on the crest of a hill. Down below the road curved up and away from the promenade to where he now stood. Buildings, largely abandoned, flanked the church on either side of the road, although some still served as a refuge for the kind of folks he had no intention of spending quality time with.

Some might say it was dangerous out here, at this time, and past experience had told him that it wasn’t an unwise assertion. But for him, it was home, his haven. He didn’t belong in the day, not that he knew why, he’d given up asking that question many years ago. Under the sun he felt dulled, slowed even, but by night, he felt alive.

***

He didn’t remember falling asleep, not that it was a surprise at all. His mindless treks always took their toll, and tonight’s near marathon was easily up there as a personal best. He never felt it at the time, but boy did he feel it in the morning. Often he would sleep it off where he fell, but this time his rest had been interrupted. He woke up with a start, heart thudding in his chest.

It came again. What was it? A scream? Something else? He stood up and stretched tired limbs. He glanced at his watch. Four in the morning. Great. Another shriek came, this time from somewhere near the promenade. It wasn’t a happy scream, like those of the drunk zigzagging their way home. He knew those well. This was different. Someone terrified.

Another scream. Nearer this time. He pressed himself into the alcove, seeking solace in the shadows. As he watched, a young woman came hurtling round the corner at the bottom of the road. She fell once, knees scraping the pavement. She tried scrambling up but her legs kept slipping underneath her. Her breath puffed out clouds of cold mist as she dragged herself up the hill towards the church.

‘Almost there…almost there.’

She was halfway up the hill now, not fifty yards from where he crouched. She fell again, her face hitting the ground with a sick thud. Blood splattered the pavement. Something small and white clattered onto the road.

Screw this.


About the Author:

Mike is an IT Consultant who lives in Preston, UK with his wife and twin daughters.

His first novel, Message Bearer, is the first in his urban fantasy series, The Auran Chronicles, the sequel to which is due out in the first half of 2016.

As well as Message Bearer, Mike has also produced several short stories over a period of many years, some of which were fortunate enough to be selected for publication. Sadly, a bad experience with a faulty hard drive and an evil usb stick sent many of these to digital oblivion, putting him off writing for a prolonged period.

Those stories that could be salvaged, as well as more recent efforts can be found on Amazon, with Mirror Man being a particular favourite.

As well as writing Mike is also fond of the odd gaming session on the Xbox One, where people half his age use him for target practice on a regular basis.

Excerpt:

I’m not sure when I became the villain of my story. But I’m now quite certain that this is exactly what I’ve become. It is no more clear to me as I stand atop a destroyed car park looking over my home. The smoke from still smouldering buildings billow off into the distance, almost writing my name into the skyline, but I do not care. It is no more than a grim signature of the suffering that I’ve caused to those around me. My name is Devon Wills and I am a mage.

The Indigo Eye Book 1

**** Newly Revised****

At twenty-six it seems Dara Luna has it all: she owns a successful private eye business and is the first Indigo Child to become a licensed Head Hunter for the FBI. But there is one thing that eludes her and that’s vengeance against the vampire who killed her grandfather as she helplessly stood by and watched.

Josef MacBain; a centuries old Werewolf and mercenary is hot on her trail. He was tipped off that she just might be the Alpha Mate he has been searching for. Now, he’ll stop at nothing to claim her as his own. It doesn’t matter to him who he has to sacrifice to possess her.

To save the daughter of a head Council of Elders member, Dara must face off against the vampire she has sworn vengeance on. The only problem is Josef is determined to stop her before she fulfills a destiny that could spell the end of the world as they know it. It’s a destiny that Dara knows nothing about and Josef wants to keep it that way. Too bad for the both of them that Dara’s mortal enemy plans to have her for himself…. Whatever it takes.

Excerpt:

So when in doubt be snarky, at least that’s my motto. “More than you could shake a stick at, wolf boy.”

Josef leaned forward his mouth a hair’s breadth away from my own. His eyes were alight with mischief. His tongue darted out to wet his lips and I couldn’t help but follow the movement with my eyes. It was like I was being pulled under by a riptide.

“No matter. I’ll make you forget everyone before me.” His bravado was unflappable, cocky werewolf that he was.

I didn’t even have a chance to answer him as his mouth closed over mine. The kiss was soft, not demanding as I thought it would have been. Fire raced through my veins chasing every sane thought away. His mouth kept a steady rhythm, coaxing a moan from me.

Interview:

Could you tell our readers a little bit about your writing journey?

I’ve been writing since I’m 13. I have always loved books and they way they wisked you off on grand adventures.

How many books do you currently have published? I have 4 books out now with a 5th one releasing in December.

What has been your favorite book to write so far? Why?

Surrender to Me, because when I started it I didn’t really care for the hero. But by the end he had me cheering him on like a fangirl.

Are you currently working on a book? Will this be your next release?

Yes I am. I am in the second round of edits for a release coming in March 2017.

What do you enjoy most about writing?

Writing allows me to explore emotions that most people shy away from. It has also helped to push myself to write things I wouldn’t normally be comfortable with.

Do you ever get writer’s block? If so, how do you deal with it?

I only ever write when a story feels urgent. If it isn’t urgent then you tend to get blocked up. If I don’t care about my characters than my readers won’t.

Have you ever had one of your characters to take a twist you weren’t expecting and surprise you?

This happens to me all the time.

Which of your characters is your personal favorite? Least favorite? Why?

Dara Luna is my favorite. She was my first real full bodied character. My least favorite is a character I am writing at the moment. He has no redeeming qualities.

So far, what has been your favorite scene to write?

My favorite scene to write would have to be the face-off between Dara and Kristoff in Whatever It Takes.

What lessons have you learned since becoming a writer? Do you have any tips for new writers?

The biggest lesson I have learned is this is a business. You have to be serious. Yes it’s fun and relaxing, but it should always be treated with respect.

The best tip I can give is learn as much of the business as you can. Like formatting and cover work, cause you are better off spending the money on a good editor and good promotion.

If you were to recommend your books to a stranger, which book would you advise them to start with? Why? 

I would have to tell them to start at the beginning and that is Whatever It Takes.

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?

No teaser as of the moment, but I post them often on my facebook page.

Now it’s time to get to know you! What are some of your favorite books to read?

I love PNR and historical romance.

What about television shows? Movies?

Oh boy there are a lot. Let’s see, The Walking Dead, Once Upon A Time, and Turn. Movies, that’s a tough one. I would say old black and whites are my favorite to watch.

Is there a book that you have read that you feel has made a big impact on your life? Why?

The Lord Of The Rings. I read it when I was 13 and it helped me escape a very abusive home life. Every time I picked that book up I could be somewhere else.

Can readers find you at any live events, such as book signings or conventions?

I will be doing my first book signing next year in Ohio.

If you had to sum up your life as a writer in ten words, what would you say?

It’s not just a job, it’s an adventure.

Do you have anything else you’d like to share with readers?

I love to connect with readers, so if you have read my books and want to chat drop me a message on Facebook.
