Pardon the Interruption—NIGHT SOULS by Maynard and Sims

Night Souls by Maynard and Sims is new in trade paperback this month—just in time for Halloween! Check out the book trailer below…

“Maynard and Sims books just keep getting better and better, and Night Souls might just be their best yet. You are doing yourself a disservice if you do not give their books a try. I can only hope that there are more adventures in store for the intrepid souls of Department 18.” —Famous Monsters of Filmland

“I was a huge fan of Black Cathedral and am an even bigger fan of Night Souls. Maynard and Sims know what they’re doing when it comes to the supernatural and suspense.” —Horror Review

“We are offered a chiller/thriller that is a roller coaster ride worthy of an X-Files and John le Carré mash-up.” —Shroud Magazine

Pardon the Interruption—BLOOD TIES by Judith E. French

“French can add another gripping suspense to her repertoire of bestsellers with [Blood Ties]. With a gift for creating an ominous yet homey atmosphere, the author spins another web of a suspense-filled tale with intrigue and romance. This novel picks up where Blood Kin left off, with deadly secrets, the curses of a Native American burial ground and plenty else to keep readers on edge. The author makees you feel like you’re right in the midst of the action.” —Romantic Times Book Reviews

Blood Ties is now available for the first time in e-book!

Pardon the Interruption—A LITTLE LIGHT MAGIC

“A moving story that will bring tears to your eyes and make you laugh out loud. Joy Nash is an absolutely brilliant genius. I laughed out loud, cried crocodile tears and had butterflies in my stomach while reading this beautiful story. I recommend it to everyone.”
—Fresh Fiction

“Are things happening by coincidence, or is it magic? That’s the question Nash asks in this light, fun and interesting story.” —RT Book Reviews

“If you are looking for a little light reading, maybe something that will be forgotten within a few days, A LITTLE LIGHT MAGIC is not the book for you. Ms. Nash writes this intense family drama with some very quirky characters and funny scenes that gets to the heart of the matter in this beautifully written story.” —Coffee Time Romance

“Ms. Nash’s characters are smart, funny and know what they want. Well, sort of, but that’s half the fun. She writes a winding plot that engages the reader from page one to well beyond the end of the story… If you love a romantic romance, filled with hunky heroes, funky family members, and a remarkable heroine, then A Little Light Magic is the novel for you.” —Long and Short Reviews

“One perfect read.” —The Good, The Bad, The Unread

“Joy Nash is one of those treasures… As a hard lover of completely character driven romances, I am definitely on board for Nash’s future contemporary releases.” —All About Romance

A Little Light Magic is available in e-book. And don’t miss Joy’s latest, The Unforgiventhe first in her new paranormal series The Watchers.

Pardon the Interruption—THE LONG LAST CALL

“…a purchase is in order, horror fans.” —Bookgasm

“John Skipp is a badass…nothing’s come anywhere near the badassness that is The Long Last Call, one of the most kinetic, fist-to-the jaw reads I’ve experienced in a long, long while.” —Dread Central

“You’d expect someone back from a genre hiatus to enter quietly, test the water, what have you. But with this one-two punch of a book John kicks in the door and saunters in like he owns the place. And after reading it I must say I’d be hard pressed to argue. In conclusion, just buy it. There is no excuse, as a discerning horror fan, to not treat yourself to this one.” —Skullring

“The story works very well and is a quick and entertaining read. Fans of Skipp’s earlier work, Edward Lee, or Richard Laymon will enjoy The Long Last Call…Skipp is a solid and talented writer.”
—Monster Librarian

But it’s too good not to share, and luckily, Richard Curtis over at [e-reads] has figured it out!). Doesn’t it just make you appreciate how well-crafted those steamy historical romance scenes are?
