Genre: PNR

Two zombies and one skeleton on a road trip to Vegas to kill a witch, stop an apocalypse, and rescue their friends from the belly of a shadow dragon.

 

Nothing weird about that.
 
Five things I learned while being a fallen angel zombie:
 
1. Duct tape works better than embalming.
 
2. Alopecia is not my favorite hairstyle.
 
3. Fried demons smell like bacon.
 
4. This brain breath is affecting my love                  life.
 
5.  Nothing ruins a honeymoon like an apocalypse.

Excerpt:

“Omigod,
Ash?”
            I turned at the sound of a familiar
nasally whine. Dear Lord in heaven, it couldn’t be. But it was. Travis Jones,
aka my jerk ex-boyfriend, who’d left me for our chain-smoking cougar law
professor.
            I flashed a forced smile. “Oh, hey,
Travis. Long time no see.”
            “It talks.” His skanky sugar mama,
displaying the latest desperately-clinging-to-youth fashion, camel-toe skinny
jeans, a frilly little girl top, and suede stiletto boots, gaped at me as if I
was the one with a crotch gap the size of the Grand Canyon.
            “Of course I talk.” I jutted a stiff
fist on my hip. “I’m undead, not brain dead.” I took a step forward, scowling
at the basket Travis clutched in his bony fingers. “The world is ending, and
you take alcohol, condoms, and cigarettes?”
            Travis grabbed a champagne bottle
out of his basket, aiming it at me like he was wielding a baseball bat. “Don’t
come any closer.”
            “Thanks.” I lunged forward,
snatching the bottle out of his hands. No surprise, he didn’t put up a fight.
I’d forgotten how puny his arms were. I was so used to Aedan’s meaty biceps
that Travis’s toothpicks, sticking out of his T-shirt, made him look like an
elementary schoolboy compared to my husband. I waved the bottle in Travis’s
face, laughing under my breath as his eyes followed the movement like Pavlov’s
dog. “It’s our wedding day, and we haven’t celebrated yet.”
            Travis stepped back, quaking like he
was mid-seizure. “Y-you’re married?”
            “Yes.” I nodded at Aedan, who placed
a hand on my shoulder. “This is my husband, Aedan O’Connor. He’s a grim
reaper.” I smiled up at my handsome groom. “Aedan, this is Travis, my
ex-boyfriend.”
            Aedan didn’t utter a word. He didn’t
have to. The look he shot Travis said it all.
            “Um, hi,” Travis squeaked.
            Aedan nodded at the skank, who
needed to touch up her gray roots and remove the fake mole that looked like a
tick was eating her face. “Travis, you and your mother need to find shelter.
It’s going to get ugly.”
            Mrs. Cougar Club actually had the
nerve to gasp. “I’m not his mother!” She stomped a heel on the polished
concrete, the sound ricocheting to the rafters.
            My attention was drawn to the nasty
creature with what appeared to be a dislocated jaw. That didn’t seem to deter
his mission as he hobbled toward Travis, blood and drool hanging down his chin.
The poor guy’s arm had fallen out of the socket, and he didn’t have any duct
tape. I almost felt sorry for him.
            “There’s a zombie behind you,” I
said casually, as if I was warning Travis the zipper shielding his three-inch
pecker was down.
            Travis spun around, screamed like a
little girl, and jumped behind his girlfriend.
            “Oh, Travis. What did I ever see in
you?” I heaved an overly-dramatic sigh and set the champagne bottle on a
display. I wasn’t in the mood for alcohol, anyway, unless it was spiked with
blood and brains.
            “Step aside,” Aedan grumbled,
pushing Travis before slicing off the zombie’s head.
            I laughed when the head rolled in
front of Travis and his girlfriend. Mrs. Cougar didn’t think it was too funny,
though. Her eyes rolled to the back of her head, and she slumped to the floor.
Travis didn’t even try to catch her.
            I tossed Travis a scowl before
thumbing at Aedan. “That is how real men kill zombies. Grow a set.”
            I was a little too stiff to turn on
my heel and sashay away, so I did the next best thing. I let out a rancid burp,
blowing rotten squirrel and bloody beef breath at Travis, smiling when his pale
face turned a diaper-doo green. Then I turned, looped an arm through Aedan’s,
and walked away. Damn, that had felt good.
            Aedan stopped me as we came to the
broken glass doors. “Hang on. You have another maggot.”
            He wiped my eye. No wonder it had
been itching me. I figured it was seasonal allergies, but no, just another
worm. “Thanks, honey.” I beamed up at my big, strong hero. “I feel bad making
you pick off all my maggots.”
            “For better or for worse,” he said
with a wink, looking sexier than should be legal as he leaned against his
scythe, scanning the outside. “Remember?”
            “Of course I remember.” I stood on
stiff toes and kissed his cheek. “And you’ve already proven that ten times
over.”
            He reached for my hand. “I’ll keep
proving it for the rest of eternity.”


            Awww. Nobody made my zombie heart
flutter like my husband.

The Sisters, Texas Series Book 1
by Becki Willis
Genre: Cozy Mystery
 **
**
Named 2016 Best Mystery Series by Texas Association of Authors.
When Madison Reynolds finds herself widowed and penniless before forty,
she does the only thing she knows to do – she packs up her teenage
twins and moves back home with her eighty-year-old grandmother. Life
in The Sisters, Texas has not changed much since she’s been gone,
but at least her best friend Genesis is there to soften the
transition back into small-town life.
To make ends meet, Madison opens In a Pinch Temporary Services.
Her first real client is Ronny Gleason, but when she shows up for the
first day of work at the Gleason Poultry Farm, Madison makes a
gruesome discovery. The dead body she finds belongs to Mr. Gleason.
When a local man is arrested for murder, Madison takes on the job of
proving his innocence. Even though she is not a private investigator,
both mothers are desperate: Lucy Ngyen to clear her son’s name, and
Madison to pay her bills. But as she begins asking questions around
town, her interference is not welcome.
With a daughter determined to go back to Dallas, a son settling into small
town life, a feisty grandmother who knows all the town gossip, bill
collectors calling, and now someone trying to keep her silent,
Madison has no time for re-kindling her high school crush with police
chief Brash deCordova. She has her hands full just trying to stay
alive.
If she survives her amateur investigation, Maddy has a decision to make.
Will she go back to her life in Dallas, or will she build a new life
here in The Sisters?

When The Stars Fall
The Sisters, Texas Series Book 2
 **
**
Madison Reynolds is rebuilding her life, one obstacle at a time.
But the building blocks aren’t standard issue: widowed at
thirty-nine…betrayed by her late husband…mother of teenaged
twins…finances in shambles…living with her eighty-year-old
grandmother…still attracted to her teenage crush Brash deCordova,
who just happens to be the Chief of Police in The Sisters…embroiled
in yet another murder mystery… How will she ever get all the blocks
assembled and stacked one upon another, in order to build a future
for herself and her children?
Madison’s newest client at In a Pinch Temp Service is a
suspicious wife, up against a formidable foe—the lovely Caress
Ellingsworth, former soap opera queen. When the star is murdered and
Madison is eyewitness to the deed, she wonders if the shadowed person
she saw commit the crime might really be her client. Now Madison is
torn between uncovering the truth and keeping her client’s name off
the suspect list.
Caress is not the only star in town these days. with a little help from
Granny Bert and Madison’s best friend Genesis, the popular
television show Home Again arrives, with some crazy notion about
remodeling the Big House for Maddy and her twins. The problem is,
Madison can’t afford to buy the house, much less pay to have it
renovated. No matter how tempting the offer—or how tempting the
show’s star, Nick Vilardi—Madison sees it as just another block
that will not fit.
Even if she manages to stack the blocks in a semblance of order, even if
she climbs her way up and reaches for the sky, what happens when the
stars fall?

Stipulations and Complications
The Sisters, Texas Series Book 3
 **
**
Life comes with stipulations.
If you want to fit into last year’s swimsuit, you can’t eat ice cream and a Gennydoodle cookie after
every meal.


If you want to go to Heaven, you can’t raise Hell on
Saturday night and show up in the church pew on Sunday morning,
hungover and reeking of cheap perfume.
And if you want your
hundred-year-old mansion completely updated and remodeled for free,
you have to sacrifice.
Stipulations, my child.
-Granny Bert Cessna
Now that Madison Reynolds has agreed to be part of a reality-television
home remodeling show, she barely recognizes her own life. The show is
an instant success, bringing cameras and reporters right to her
doorstep, eager to chronicle her every move in the small Texas town.
With In a Pinch Temporary Services hovering on the thin line between
prosperity and extinction, Madison takes on another quirky case, this
one concerning a property dispute. Complications turn a simple
mission into all-out danger, and once again Madison finds herself
embroiled in an intriguing mystery.
Between her cantankerous grandmother, a moody teenage daughter, an
ever-starving son, townspeople eager to grab their fifteen minutes of
fame at her expense, and a mother-in-law appalled by her undignified
foray into the public eye, Madison had her hands full, long before
the skeleton was discovered. Now work is interrupted at the Big
House, ghost stories abound, more secret passages have been
unearthed, and someone is trying to scare her away from her new home.
What she needs is another session of Brash deCordova’s unique
‘river therapy’… not to mention the kiss that eludes them with
frustrating regularity.
What she gets is another round of stipulations and complications.

By all accounts, everyone loves Genny.
So why does someone want her dead?

There’s something special about Genesis Baker, owner of The Sister’s popular New
Beginnings Café
. With her dimpled smile and twinkling blue eyes,
Genny has practically the entire town eating from the palm of her
hand. But Genny is hiding a secret. Despite her sunny disposition and
golden touch, there is heartache in her past, and heartache, they
say, comes in threes.
Heartache Number One: An
unwelcomed customer shows up at New Beginnings.
Apparently, the restraining order against him has lapsed.


Heartache Number Two: Genny’s arch nemesis from high school returns
to town. Twenty years has done nothing to mellow the bitter feud
between these two women.


Heartache Number Three: As
Genny finally acknowledges her feelings for a younger man—sexy
firefighter Cutter Montgomery—memories of her first love come back
to haunt her.
On top of it all, someone is stalking Genny,
determined to make her life miserable.

 

As it turns out, being kidnapped is only the beginning of her troubles…

In a pirate’s lair, nothing is as it seems . . .
Shipwrecked!
When Royce Hastings is found washed up on the shore of a verdant tropical
island, he tells the natives he is a merchant headed for Mozambique.
The truth, however, is far more mercenary. Noble by birth, the once
favored Royce has lost his fortune and family; now he is a hired
henchman on the trail of an elusive pirate. His “shipwreck” was a
fake. He’ll stop at nothing to infiltrate the island and capture
his prey. His mother and sisters’ lives depend on it.
The last thing Royce expects is to be captured himself. But the lovely young woman
who tends to his wounds in the tropics quickly takes hold of his
heart. Simone is the island’s healer, and her skilled ministrations
not only awaken his soul but disturb his conscience. His path has
been predetermined; his identity must remain concealed at all costs.
Yet the passion he feels in Simone’s sultry, loving arms cannot be
denied. With his loyalties torn, Royce must make an agonizing,
unthinkable choice. . . .

Fighting Disease with Whole Food Nutrition

My Journey Fighting HIV with Whole Food Nutrition, Herbs and Spices

By S. Diane Barry

Book Description:

I was diagnosed with HIV in January 2005.
Over twelve years later, I’m healthy and doing well.
I don’t have AIDS. My numbers are great.
I did this without prescription medications.
How?
By fighting HIV with whole food nutrition, herbs, spices, and healthy lifestyle choices.

***
Excerpt:
There are many alternative
therapies. I believe that food is the best medicine. Nothing outrageous but a
healthy diet of fresh foods, full of nutrition, is a good start. 
Herbs and spices
offer medicinal qualities that science seeks to replicate and reproduce. I
believe in Mother Nature and choose the most natural options I can afford. Many
will argue about the cost of health foods, but I will argue about the cost of
health care -a cost I do not have!  I
often have to remind myself I am HIV positive.  I am undoubtedly healthier than most of the
people I know. I take no prescription medications other than an occasional
muscle relaxer for neck pain.  I even
rely on a capsaicin or cayenne rub for topical use instead of taking a pill. I
only use the medication as a last resort.
Prevention vs. cure
is an excellent battle plan if you’re serious about living healthy.
There are many
other things that may contribute to my body holding this virus at bay. I am not
a cigarette smoker. I am a Vegetarian.  I
never was a clean freak, so I don’t use noxious chemicals to clean and
pesticides are not my style.
***
  

About the Author:

It’s 2017 and 12 years after my HIV diagnosis I am still healthy and on no prescription meds for HIV.
I wrote Fighting Disease with Whole Food Nutrition to start a discussion about healthy choices that save lives. Because no one seems to care about that. Not the doctors or specialists, or anyone I tried to contact to expand on why I am so healthy despite being HIV positive.
The answer is food. Real food. Not processed, microwaved, filled with preservatives and chemically created vitamins food. Real, whole, fresh food.
You are what you eat. Eat healthy to be healthy.

PERFECT ODDS
by LaShanta Charles
Genre: New Adult Romance
 **
**
Callista Brenner refuses to let go of her past. She had her entire life
figured out…except, maybe that was only in her mind. Being stood up
for her own wedding should be a clue. Regardless, she’s determined
to fix this. She just needs a plan and if there’s one thing she’s
good at, it’s planning. Her accolades as one of Georgia’s top
premiere event planners if proof of that. It doesn’t matter that
she’s a whirlwind of clumsy chaos. All she has to do is stay away
from the gorgeously irritating Jayce Gilmore and her wedding will be
back on track. That’s exactly what she wants. Right? She loves her
fiancé. She wants to marry him and start a family. He’s her
everything. Or is he?
Jayce Gilmore has somehow let himself be bamboozled. One minute he was
enjoying his quiet existence in his home in the outskirts of Victory,
NY and the next he was facing his best friend’s wife and promising
to be the best man at their wedding, which he also agreed to host at
his resort & casino, La Bonne Chance. The introvert in him is
questioning his sanity. As if that wasn’t bad enough, his partner
has decided he’s taking a three-month hiatus, leaving the business
solely in Jayce’s hands. Just when he’s ready to curl into a ball
and refuse to leave his room, a chance encounter at an airport has
him realizing some things are worth venturing out of your comfort
zone for.
Neither of them could have guessed that Callista’s past would decide it
wants to be her future and will stop at nothing to make that a
reality. Could she accept that maybe her carefully laid plans weren’t
as careful as she thought? Will Jayce be able to show her that he’s
worth a chance and, together, their oddities can be perfect?

Excerpt:      

Prologue
Johnson City, TN April 25, 2016
Leslie Jennings
carefully folded the last of her husband’s shirts and zipped up the
suitcase.  She picked it up, struggling
as she did.  Leslie was only 5’2, and
very slim.  The suitcase was almost as big
as she.  Leslie managed to get it to the
floor, where she raised the handle and rolled it to the top of the stairs.  Now she had to get it downstairs without
making too much noise.  Carter would
accuse her of trying to destroy his Louis Vuitton luggage.   After ten minutes of pulling the luggage
down one stair at a time, Leslie finally rolled it to the front door.  She ran quickly back upstairs and grabbed his
garment bag.  She had already packed this
and she hurried back downstairs.  
She was waiting
by the luggage when Carter came downstairs, his briefcase hanging from his
shoulder.  He was dressed in a sharp gray
suit, white dress shirt, and patterned gray tie.  Leslie studied him while he glanced through
his phone.   Carter was of average
height, with graying brown hair and eyes.
He had sharp features and rarely smiled.
His only pleasure was making a sale.
He owned a real estate company and it was very successful.  They had been married for thirty years and
they had no children.
Carter didn’t
like kids, so they didn’t have any. He glanced up from his phone and gave
Leslie the once-over.  She was wearing
her scrubs, ready to go to work at the hospital after she dropped Carter off at
the airport.  She worked the seven p.m.
to seven a.m. shift when he was gone on business trips.  He thought if she worked at night, she
wouldn’t be out doing anything else. She didn’t know why it mattered if she was
seeing anyone or not. 
He was not the
affectionate type and most of the time he acted like he hated Leslie. It wasn’t
an issue anyway, Leslie didn’t go anywhere outside of work and her
grandmother’s house. The only people she talked to were her co-workers and her
grandmother Jody.  Carter didn’t allow
her to socialize with anyone other than someone he approved, and he didn’t
approve of anyone. “Looks like you’re ready to go.  Is this all my stuff?” 
Carter waved his
hand over the luggage. Leslie nodded.
“Yes, that’s it.  I packed
everything you had on the list.” Carter picked up his garment bag and gestured
for Leslie to get his suitcase.  She
picked it up and carried it to the car waiting right outside the door in their
driveway that curved around the front of the house.  She couldn’t roll it; Carter would get
upset.  She managed to get it in the
trunk of his Mercedes.   He got in the
driver’s side and Leslie in the passenger side.
Silently they drove out of the subdivision.
Carter finally
spoke when they had gotten to the highway. “Tell me your schedule,” he
commanded. “After I drop you off, I’m going home to get my car.  I’ll put yours in the garage.  Then, I’m going to Jody’s to fix her supper,
then I’m off to work.  I work the night
shift.  I get off at seven a.m.  I’ll go back to Jody’s and fix her breakfast,
then home for a few hours of sleep.  Then
I’ll get up and complete the to-do list that you made.”
Carter nodded in
satisfaction.  “Very good.  I approve.” Leslie stared out the
window.  How she would love to hit him
right in his arrogant face. 
Well, that was
all going to change tonight.  When she
finally made it to work tonight, she was going to leave her cell there.  Carter had a tracking app on it.  She had already spoken to her supervisor and
he had promised that he would help Leslie in any way that he could.  
Leslie was going
to get on a Greyhound bus tonight and start her journey away from Carter.  She had been saving money for months, a
little at a time and squirreling it away at Jody’s.  She would go get the money and see Jody one
more time. After that, she was going to leave her car at the bus terminal and
take the bus to Memphis, rest, get on another bus to New Orleans, and slowly
make her way around the southeast coast to a little island town in North
Carolina called Land’s End.
Leslie had heard
Jody talk about the little town for years.
Leslie’s first cousin, Samantha, lived there with her husband, Andy, who
was also the sheriff of the town.  Samantha
had never contacted Jody, but through the internet, Leslie had been able to
track them down for Jody. Even though she knew where they were, Jody wouldn’t
contact her.  She was waiting for
Samantha to come to her. She knew what Samantha had been through, and Jody
didn’t want to bring back sad memories to Samantha until she was ready.  Leslie thought it was a good a place as any
to start over.  Maybe she and Samantha
could become friends. Carter didn’t know about Samantha.  Jody had quite a bit of money and owned a
large historical home.
Carter thought
that Leslie was going to inherit all of it.
He didn’t mind if Leslie took care of Jody, in fact, he insisted that
she go there before and after work.  If
he knew that there was someone else to split the inheritance with, he would be
very angry with Leslie, even though it wasn’t her fault. Leslie was tired of
being the recipient of his anger.  When
they first married, she wasn’t aware of his violent temper or that he was a
control freak.  She thought that the
reason he watched her every move and told her what to wear, who to be friends
with, etc., was because he cared about her.
Her parents had
died when Leslie was ten. Her grandmother had taken her in and raised her.  Leslie loved Jody, but she had missed her
parents, especially her father terribly. That was one of the things that had
attracted her to Carter.  He was several
years older than she was.  He owned his
own business, home and he was very settled and mature for a man in his early
thirties.  
The first time
she did something he didn’t approve of they had been married for a year. He had
backhanded her and bruised her cheek so badly that she had to wear pancake
makeup for over a week.  It took her
while to figure out what set him off, but over the years she had managed to get
into his routine and kept herself from getting hurt.
They were
getting close to the airport and Carter started droning out instructions to
her.  She could recite what he was
telling her in her sleep; but she answered him in the way he liked for her to
respond. No sense in getting him upset.
It was so close for time for her to leave; she could deal with him for a
few more minutes. He pulled up in front of the doors in the unloading zone.  Leslie got out and waited for him to open the
trunk.  She handed him his garment bag,
then pulled his suitcase out.  He took
the handle from her. “I’ve got it from here.
Get my car home and put away.  I
will see you in a week.” 


Without any
further words, he went inside the terminal and Leslie got in to drive his car
home. He had always told her that he would kill her if she left.  When she had celebrated her 55th birthday in
January, Leslie had known that this year was the year she had to leave.  Living like this was killing her, and she
deserved a chance for happiness sometime in her life.
