Author Description:
Having written her first paranormal fantasy book at the age of forty-three, Margaret Daly has started a wonderful trilogy. Margaret took her life’s encounters and crossed a bridge to a different world with them, a world filled with untamed power and endless possibilities. Being raised in the hills of West Sparta, New York, Margaret lost her home and everything in it to fire at a young age. She dove into the dark world as a teenager and from there on spent most of her life wrapped up in unfortunate situations from bad choices. Margaret learned some things aren’t what you expect; some things end up being more.
Now, with her loving husband and four children, a family full of support and love, she has managed to overcome all the oddities thrown at her. Becoming the published author she once dreamed of being as a child but lost track of during this journey we call life.
Interview Excerpt
Up next is my story that will be featured in another boxed set releasing in 2019. I’m not sure how much I can divulge, but I can say it has something to do with the Zodiac signs.
I love social media! I’ve met some terrific people online over the last few years and they have all helped me in one way or another. Whether it be through writing or through my marketing or web building, I’ve gained almost all my followers organically. I’ve used some giveaways for followers but the majority are “free followers”.
Selling on social media can be tough. Especially if you aren’t vigilant about it. When I say vigilant, I mean every single day to multiple platforms.
Book cover: I do all of my book covers. That is part of my lively hood, both representing my books as well as my clients. Anytime I make a cover for a client, I have them propose it to their fans. Then we work through what we like and or don’t like. Honestly, most times I try to get to know what the book is about and develop the cover as I see it. The cover has to tell a story too.
You have written a short story called Sapphire & Me with your daughter. This project was a lot of fun. I involved all the kiddos as well as their cousins. I had them do the art work for it. My daughter Alex is Ten years old now, and she has already written 5 more books. They are all in the rough draft stage but we will get them edited and out to the public as soon as we can.
Primary genre: My primary genre is horror, fantasy, romance.??? I write a little bit of everything into my stories.
Love Under Fire with twenty other authors: Working with the Love Under Fire authors has been a wonderful experience. I first joined up just for that, experience. But now that I have a taste for the “letters”, I’ll have more of them please.

Author Description:
Chris Patchell is the bestselling author of In the Dark and the Indie Reader Discovery Award winning novel Deadly Lies. A former tech worker turned full-time author, Chris Patchell pens gritty suspense novels set in the Pacific Northwest.
Writing has been a lifelong passion for Chris. She fell in love with storytelling in the third grade when her half-page creative writing assignment turned into a five-page story on vampires. Even back then Chris had a gift for writing intricate plots that were so good her father refused to believe she didn’t steal them from comic books.
Her novels have been praised by Kevin O’Brien and Robert Dugoni, and her rich complex plot lines and well-drawn characters will keep you turning pages well into the night. When she’s not writing books or watching football, Chris is hanging out with her husband, kids, and two crazy dogs.
Interview Excerpt
Next: I’m really excited about my next book, Deception Bay. It’s a bit of a departure from the dark suspense Patchell fans are used to reading—I’ve delved into the genre of Romantic Mystery. I suspect readers will enjoy this new direction as much if not more than what they’ve read previously.
Appearances: Most of my appearance of late have been in the form of online Facebook Events with my fellow boxed set authors, where we’ve been talking about our Love Under Fire books.
Audiobooks saved my sanity on my daily grinding commute through Seattle traffic, and when the audio rights for my books were acquired by Audible, I was thrilled! My goal was to attract a new audience of readers, and I have managed to reach new fans through Audible, but so far the audiobooks have not had a huge impact on my book sales.
Primary genre: People are the most interesting puzzles to solve. My fascination with the darker side of human nature has inspired me to primarily write suspense. I love crafting complex stories lines with realistic and flawed characters that keep people up late at night because they just can’t sleep until they know what happens next.
Free books: I gave away a lot of copies of my first book, DEADLY LIES. For me, the goal has really been to build a readership, and exposing your work to a broad audience is one great way to do this. My first BookBub free promotion was hands-down the most successful. In two days there were sixty-eight thousand downloads of DEADLY LIES. It was amazing, and the side-benefit was that sales of my second book, IN THE DARK, skyrocketed.
My reader list is my newsletter. This is a combination of folks who found me organically through a link in the back of my books, or my website and those I have found through various Newsletter building services, where fans of a particular genre sign up for your newsletter as part of a multi-author giveaway
Love Under Fire with twenty other authors: At first, I wasn’t sure about it. I mean, I knew there was an accomplished group of authors participating, but Romantic Suspense is new for me, and given my other deadlines and commitments, I wanted to make sure that I had a story worth telling.

About USA Today Bestselling Author Stephanie Queen
Stephanie Queen is the USA Today bestselling author of the romantic detective series, Beachcomber Investigations. She lives in the stunning state of New Hampshire with her family, her cat, Kitty and her fun-loving friends. Besides going to the gym sporadically, Stephanie cooks and crochets and loves chocolate covered potato chips (yes, she should go to the gym more often).
She used to be a 9 to fiver working in downtown Boston, but has thrown her stylish suits and fancy heels in a closet and now hangs out in UConn t-shirts, jeans and sneakers. “If I could come back in another life as anything I wanted, I’d be a regency era heroine.” (Not surprisingly) Regency romances are her favorite secret reads.
Interview Excerpt
Next up is book 9 in the Beachcomber Investigations romantic detective series, BEACHCOMBER GONE. It will be out on November 25th on all platforms.
Personal appearance: I’ll be speaking next at Hampstead Public Library and others in early February with other romance authors to celebrate Valentine’s Day with local romance readers. The best places to keep up with me are Facebook a , my website, or BookBub
Great covers: I love my covers and developed the theme/brand over time. I work with Cover Designer Michele Hauf who is a saint and a genius. We work very closely on the design. I often find the photos of the people and backgrounds. And it’s funny you should ask about reader in put–when I’m prevaricating on more than one version of a cover, I will often ask the members of my Stephanie Queen Team for their input.
Great book trailer for the Beachcomber Investigations Series I’m not sure about the impact on success, but I enjoy book trailers and have a Youtube channel which I’ve been working on populating because it’s one of the more enjoyable social media places for me. Beachcombers Book Trailer
I love audiobooks. As a big consumer of them, I recognize their value and wanted to get as many of my books into audio as possible. I’m still working on getting my Beachcomber Investigations series into audio and will be releasing Let It Snow in audio for this Christmas season. It’s a fun, but time-consuming process. I’m not sure about a cross-over audience, but I know there is a ravenous audio audience since I’m one of them!
My primary genre is romantic suspense with contemporary romance a close second. The line often gets blurred here I’ve noticed and there’s lots of cross over.
My reader list, or newsletter list has been built in a variety of ways. Some purely organic, some people I meet at in-person events, some through rafflecopter contests and giveaways. I haven’t found social media to be a great way to build lists, but advertising does.
Love Under Fire with twenty other authors: Author bundles or box sets are terrific fun for me. It’s a chance to work fairly closely with a group of authors over a few months and really get to know them. So even if these sets didn’t help with cross promoting readers among the authors–which they do–I would still be involved with them.

Author Description:
USA Today bestselling author, Fiona Quinn is rooted in the Old Dominion outside of D.C. with her husband and children. There, she pops chocolates, devours books, and taps continuously on her laptop.
Interview Excerpt
Next: New to this series is Thorn, releasing October 30th. This series includes strong women who work in various scientific fields. In Thorn, Dr. Alanna DuBois’s specialty runs counter to the needs of the US navy, throwing her into the path of our enemies.
Personal appearances: I do enjoy meeting readers in all kinds of venues. I particularly like to lecture about various topics that are technical in nature like fighting and weapons or applied psychology. Learn more on my website FionaQuinnBooks.com.
Great covers: I love my covers, and I owe them to the imagination of my book cover artist, Melody Simmons. She is always up on her research and has worked with me to create a cohesive brand as well as to make each series stand out as unique.
Author bundles: I have very much enjoyed being involved in bundles; though, it is a lot of work. The main reason I do it is to meet other authors, to talk shop with my colleagues, to have a common goal, to be part of something interesting. I have developed some lovely friendships this way. It’s also an opportunity for me to offer some of my work at a discounted price to my readers and for new readers to try out my style of writing to see if it’s something they enjoy.
My primary genre is suspense (often with a psychic twist). I developed the Iniquus World (Washington DC, modern-day, military subcontractor industry) in which I have five series; The Lynx Series, Uncommon Enemies, Strike Force, The Kate Hamilton Mysteries, and, with Love Under Fire, I launch the fifth an FBI series that starts with Cold Red.
I have a reader list. People who are interested can sign up on my website. In my newsletters, I try to share some of the things that I’m doing.

**Start reading Alyssa’s best selling Fine Art of Deception Series with book 1: The Fine Art of Deception for FREE on Amazon! Read all of Alyssa’s books for FREE with KINDLE UNLIMITED**
ALYSSA RICHARDS is the Amazon best selling author of The Fine Art of Deception series and The Haunting of Alcott Manor series – a contemporary gothic trilogy.
She loves living in the South with her husband and two children. She also loves good espresso, her rescue dogs, magnolias and gardenias, and, of course, reading a great book. She grew up running barefoot in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, where her favorite weekly adventure was a trip to the library with her mom.
Interview Excerpt
Next: A Stranger at Alcott Manor is the third installment in the Alcott Manor Series and its due for release in November. Readers tell me they love the fresh direction this series takes on the typical Gothic manor story, that the characters stay with them long after they put the book down.
Personal appearances: Online is the best place to find me right now and I love to hear from readers!
Facebook – And my blog are pretty active places — Alyssa Richards’ blog.
Great covers: I worked with one designer for The Fine Art of Deception Series and a different one for The Haunting of Alcott Manor Series. When I’m working on a book cover with a designer, I study movie posters in that genre, particularly older ones. Maybe because my mind is more visual than most, but I love the way good movie posters make you feel their story.
Bundling a series of novels: I wanted to make it easy for readers to grab the series so I bundled the first 3 together. I also discounted the box set as a thank you for picking up all three books at once. I think that might have helped things pick up initially.
Primary genre: I love a good suspense story, one that takes me a while to figure out, one with characters I can invest in. So, that’s exactly what I write.
Giveaways: I often give books away for free, especially the first book in The Fine Art of Deception Series. Since I’m still relatively unknown to a lot of readers, my goal in giving books away is to remove any barriers that might prevent them from at least trying some of my work.
My primary goal with my blog is to communicate with readers. It’s an easy way to let them know about what’s going on in my book world. My secondary goal is to make it easier for people who are searching for books like mine, to find me.
Love Under Fire with twenty other authors: [Working with] extremely talented, hard-working group of authors who have pooled their writing gifts and resources to benefit Pets for Vets. Pets for Vets is a non-profit that rescues and rehabilitates animals and places them with American Veterans.

Life is an extravaganza! figuring out how to hang tough and make the most of the wild ride is the challenge.
On my way to Oahu to join the rock musician and high school drop-out I had met in San Diego and married in Tijuana, I was nabbed by the police as a runaway. When the police let me go and the rock band broke up, my husband and I had to find another way to survive. Our next stop: Disney World where we trained to be chefs, courtesy of the Walt Disney World University. A GED for my husband and many more years of education landed us in academia at The Ohio State University. Retired now from my role as a professor in social work and behavioral science, I have picked up a long-time interest in writing fiction. I’m still married to the same sweet guy and live with him in the Palm Springs area. In addition to reading and writing fiction, I enjoy painting, hiking, hanging out with my handsome husband and tending to my Siamese kitties.
An award-winning and bestselling author I enjoy snooping into life’s mysteries with fun, fiction, & food—California style! My books include the Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery series set in the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs, the Corsario Cove Cozy Mystery series set on California’s Central Coast, and The Georgie Shaw Cozy Mystery series set in Orange County, California–the OC.

Author Description:
Writing steamy yet sweet compassionate stories of fate that are wonderfully romantic, Tamara Ferguson is the multi-award winning, #1 international & Amazon Top 100 Bestselling Author of the Tales of the Dragonfly Romance Suspense Series, the Kissed By Fate Series, the Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Series, the Daydreams & Dragonflies Sweet Romance Series and the Tales From Dragonfly Pointe Short Story Series.
If you don’t believe in the power of fate, you shouldn’t read her stories, because Tamara always writes a happily-ever-after for her heroines and heroes, since it doesn’t always work out that way in real life.
Her wounded warrior romances have won six Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards with Two Hearts Unbroken earning the Bronze (2018), Two Hearts Unspoken earning the Silver (2016) and Two Hearts Find Christmas earning the GOLD Medal in Military Fiction (2018.) Two Hearts Surrendered was also a New Apple Romance Selection for excellence in Indie Publishing.
Two Hearts’ Christmas Wish, the fourth story in the series, spent 6 consecutive weeks at #1 in the Mistletoe Kisses & Christmas Wishes romance set and has become a #1 Best Seller independently as well a 2017 IAN Book of the Year Finalist. And it’s the #13 BEST INDIE BOOK of 2017.
Along with the 2015 Romance Reviews Readers’ Choice Award Winner That Unforgettable Kiss, Two Hearts Surrendered and Two Hearts Unspoken were also finalists for the 2016 IAN Book of The Year. Tales of the Dragonfly In Tandem was a romance finalist in the Indie Excellence Awards, while Tales of the Dragonfly In Flight was a romance suspense winner at the Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards.
She’s just released Two Hearts Find Christmas (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 5) and is working on Two Hearts Unbroken (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 6) and Emergence, her third Tales of the Dragonfly Novel, due to be published by Windswept in spring of 2018.
A member of the RWA, the Authors’ Billboard and the Authors’ Independent Book Network, her stories have been included in several #1 bestselling anthologies.
Since she remains a full-time caregiver for an autistic son (along with a bunch of adopted pets!), you can usually find Tammy working at home, where she spends a lot of time not completing her numerous home improvement projects, because she’s writing or helping author friends promote their books on twitter.

Featured Book: Summer of ’78
Responsible twenty-year-old Susan Evenbright didn’t get drunk at parties, do drugs, or sleep around like her friends, who clung to the sexual revolution like they had invented it. No, she worked hard, and it paid off when she got the acceptance letter to Standford’s School of Journalism—a thousand miles away from her small town in Texas.
Susan pledges to make her last summer before going away to college a big one. With just an army surplus bag in hand, she sets out to hitchhike to Austin to catch her favorite singer, Willy Nelson, in concert. But what starts out as an innocent adventure soon turns sinister as young Texas girls turn up dead.
Micheal Riley, a young FBI agent, sets out to find the man murdering young girls in Central Texas, a case that could make or break his career. When he stumbles across a young woman who fits the killer’s victim profile to a tee, he finds much more than he bargained for. Can he protect her and catch the killer before it is too late?

Dawn Greenfield Ireland
Featured Book: Bonded
Roman Davenport thought he was the only shifter in existence—a freak. He first shifted to a panther when he was twenty years old. Now, in his forties, he and his panther are so lonely.
Then he rescued Gage Stryker, an eagle that had been shot from the sky with an arrow through his wing. Like Roman, Gage thought he was the only shifter.
Roman and Gage were so happy to have found each other. They spent the next fifty years searching for their kind—and searching for mates. Relationships with women were short—most only wanted the limelight of the city’s two most eligible bachelors.
Then Ari Davis crossed their path.
The woman was seventy but looked not quite fifty, with thick white hair to her waist. The attraction was a powerful pull for all three of them.
Ari was so confused by the strong attraction to the men—that were barely older than her two sons—that she fled to Mexico for a week to try to get her head straight. When she returned home, they were there—waiting for her.
Nothing would ever be the same for any of them again. They formed a bond that could never be broken.

Michael St. John never lost a criminal case. He wasn’t a nice guy. He cheated his clients, destroyed criminal evidence, paid off judges, and ran around on his wife.

The District Attorney’s office loathed him until they found his mutilated corpse – one lovely fall morning – after an unusual outburst in Court the day before. Little did they know that Attorney St. John’s body was key evidence in far more heinous crimes.

Author Description:
They say I’m as eclectic as my characters. I’ve been a singer, a composer, a calligrapher, a quilt artist, and an ESL/Reading teacher. But it is the world of writing historical fiction where I feel I’ve come “home.” It’s where I’ve received various awards and in addition, get to do my second love: Research.
When people talk about the news of the day, or when I listen to music, my overactive imagination likens the story to a similar kind of news in the past, which helps me conjure up scenes between characters I’ve yet to meet.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT S. R. MALLERY’S BOOKS:
Unexpected Gifts: “This is a book to be savored, as there is much information, as well as a captivating story about one family greatly affected by the events of their times. A thought-provoking read indeed!” — Deborah Lloyd for Readers’ Favorite
Sewing Can Be Dangerous and Other Small Threads This is a fascinating collection of anecdotes and historical snippets focusing on the timely art of sewing. – Emily-Jane Hills Orford for READER’s FAVORITE
“Mallery is an extremely talented writer. Her style lures the reader; you actually become a part of her tapestry of expression.” — Blogger Melinda Hines, on Tales to Count On.
The Dolan Girls “was so enjoyable. At times rollicking, at times poignant, but always authentic, well researched and a beautifully told story. Highest recommendation. Five stars.” — B. Nelson, Top Amazon reviewer
Genteel Secrets “is a beautiful story which transports the reader in time. True to life historical fiction at its best, it’s so much more than romance.” – Riley, Top Amazon reviewer
Trouble in Glamour Town “is very historically accurate, portraying the real workings of the Hollywood sleaze, dishonesty and corruption happening at that time. S.R. Mallery is a gifted author who drew me into the story from the first word and kept me reading until the very last page… ” – Trudi LoPreto for Readers’ Favorite
