The Book

Thirst: Blood Of My Blood by R P Channing
Genre: YA urban fantasy

About Thirst: Blood Of My Blood:
~ Kira Sutherland ~

After a near fatal accident (and getting cheated on by her 'boyfriend'), and beating up the lead cheerleader (with whom the boyfriend cheated...), and being labeled as having 'issues' in her school because she, uhm, sees ghosts, Kira is left with two choices:

1. Continue her 'therapy' (where she's told the ghost is a hallucination and also gets her legs ogled too often...)


2. Go to Starkfield Academy, a boarding school for "Crazies and Convicts" (as the social media sites call them.)

She chooses the latter...

~ Cory Rand ~

Cory Rand has not had an easy life. His mother died in a car accident when he was twelve, and so did his mother's best friend...sort of. You see, Janice made a promise to take care of Cory just before she died, and so she lingers. Undead. A ghost that watches out for him.

Brought up in an abusive home, Cory quickly falls into a life of disreputable behavior. After his third offense (which was prompted by a girl, as usual - he has a weakness) he's left with two choices:

1. Be tried as an adult and share a cell with a guy named Bubba (he thinks...)


2. Go to Starkfield Academy, which Cory is pretty sure is run by vampires. But, hey, at least he'll get an education.

He chooses the latter...

It's at Starkfield that Kira meets Cory Rand, a boy with an insatiable Rage who sees ghosts, too. As well as other things, other things from his past, things that confuse him, things like fire and witches and demons.

Things he's always ignored.

Until now.

The Puppy Eyes

My life was perfect.

I had the perfect shoes and the perfect friends and I lived in the perfect house. My nails were perfect and my hair was perfect (except on Sundays, it was always windy on Sundays) and I had the perfect clothes. My lips were a perfect red and my hair perfectly straight. My eyeshadow was perfect, my hips were...okay, and my waist...well...also okay. Nothing was wrong in my life.

But then there was Jack.

Jack was a problem.

He needed to go. I mean, when you’re dead, you’re dead! I had told him this endlessly. Somehow, Jack didn’t get it. I mean, I felt sorry for the guy. Sure. Being stuck between this life and the next. But just because I found him, does that mean I needed to keep him?

I think not!

Sadly, when Jack got that look in his eyes, that weary, almost teary (if his tear-ducts worked) look, I melted. I just couldn’t send him away. Not even Jack knew where he would go after he died.

Would he, like, die? As in — dead, nada, kaput, finito, gone, no more? Bye bye, sayonara, ciao, hasta la vista baby and all that? I couldn’t have that on my conscience. No way.

I lay on my bed, wondering what to do about him. “Jaaaaaaack,” I hollered.


Still no answer.



His eyes rolled down to the ground. He was making those puppy eyes again. “Jack, I told you not to do that. I told you not to play on my sympathies.”

His puppy eyes became worse.

His skin was gray and, well, dead.

“Oh, brother,” I said. “I have to do something about you. If mom finds out I have another ‘imaginary friend’ — at my age — well, I’d die of embarrassment. But, like, really die. Not like you.” I wondered about this. Would I die? Was Jack a freak accident, or did all people live on like him? Think of the cemeteries...

The idea excited me somewhat.

“What would you have me do, Miss Kira?”

“Knock off the Miss Kira crap. I told you it’s just Kira.”

“Yes, Miss Kira.”

The dead. There’s just no reasoning.

“Fine, Miss Kira it is then.” Rover barked like a lunatic in the garden. No one else might be able to see Jack, but I was sure my dog could.

“I have to do something about this,” I mumbled.

About R P Channing:
R P Channing started writing three years ago, but never published anything even after churning out over a million words of fiction. Thirst: Blood of my Blood is the first book he dared to publish. When asked why, he said, “Because it’s the first thing I wrote that my wife actually enjoyed reading.” When not hammering away (most literally) at his keyboard, he can be found buried in a book, reading anything from romance to horror to young adult to non-fiction to comedy.

If I were suddenly plunked into Sharon Lapidot’s life…
Michelle Dim St. Pierre
Oh dear! It’s one thing to imagine and write out Sharon’s life…it’s an entirely different matter to be in it!

As many of my readers know, Sharon is a headstrong, outspoken, independent woman—girl power! But with her affair with Dr. Sloan comes certain responsibilities: Should she continue her affair with Sloan? Should she keep the pregnancy? Are her actions morally wrong? I couldn’t imagine the amount of stress I would suddenly feel placed on my shoulders! Let’s face it I wrote it—I tried to deliver to you, the reader, this tremendous stress.

Although Sharon’s story is an exciting one full of romance, intrigue, and suspense, I’m not sure Pinnacle Lust starring Michelle Dim-St. Pierre as the novel’s protagonist would be quite as exciting. You see, while I enjoy writing about Sharon’s sultry love life, I’m not sure how I could possibly live it! But remember I’m no longer in my twenties.

And now the secret’s out—while in my fifties, I’m boring, bland and nondescript. My idea of a hot night out is going with my husband to the dinner. And while I am a married woman, it just even doesn’t cross my mind to think as a mistress.

But heck, let’s throw all caution to the wind and say that I’m Sharon in the midst of her love affair with Dr. Sloan. Let’s say I would be young again and wouldn’t crumble under the thought of possibly destroying a marriage, that I had no qualms about following my heart.

Young people think differently. I probably would have the time of my life. Forget the sanctity of marriage, and forget Mrs. Sloan—Dr. Sloan and I would be in love and nobody could stop us!

But when things take an unexpected turn for the worst, and the affair is discovered, as most are in time, well, then I wouldn’t want to travel in her shoes. Funny how the shoes soon shrink and become uncomfortable.

I applaud Sharon for her ability to deal with Sloan in a levelheaded way. I’m not sure that if I were in Sharon’s shoes, I would have been able to act the same way.

Perhaps it’s a good thing that I’m not Sharon Lapidot—that instead, thousands of readers across the globe can appreciate how she handles these situations instead of me. Let’s just say that if it were Michelle Dim-St. Pierre as the novel’s protagonist, the story wouldn’t be quite as interesting!

The Book

Pinnacle Lust by Michelle Dim-St. Pierre
Genre: romance

About Pinnacle Lust:
In a Tel-Aviv hospital during Operation Desert Storm, Sharon Lapido, a beautiful young nurse, is having an affair with a married doctor. Sharon’s colorful and exciting life is ultimately destroyed by powerful and eroding mistakes. But her courage and wisdom lead her to an unregretful commitment. Vividly told, this compelling journey of love and lust, honor and betrayal, loss and redemption, will move you – and perhaps even change you.

About Michelle Dim-St. Pierre:
Michelle Dim-St. Pierre was born in Tel-Aviv, Israel, where she spent more than half of her life before relocating to the United States.

She lived through four wars and served in the Israel Defense Forces for two years. Unlike her first year of service in an armored division in the Golan Heights, she spent her second year serving in the medical corps where she interacted directly with the injured soldiers of the Peace of Galilee war and their families. This interaction, along with the exposure to the hospital atmosphere, fascinated Michelle and further touched her heart.

After graduating from nursing school with a BS in Nursing in Tel-Aviv, she practiced internationally for 32 years in various positions in the surgical field and quickly advanced into health care administration. During her career she worked in the Operating Room, Recovery Room, and CCU—along with many other duties.

Writing was Michelle’s outlet at first, but it soon became her passion. Recently she left nursing and became a full-time writer. Her international background, along with her military and nursing experience is always at the tip of her pen. Her first novel, Pinnacle Lust, starts the Pinnacle trilogy.

Michelle is a world traveler who enjoys cooking epicurean food and creating original recipes.

The Book

Debt by Rachel Dunning
Genre: New Adult Sports Romance

About Debt:
The Debt Collector
I pay my debts, and I expect others to.

I was raised in the slums of London, I knew nothing of privilege. My father was murdered when I was seventeen. Morty figured my father's passing meant I would automatically take on dad's debts. I refused.

And I paid for that refusal.

So did my sister.

So now I fight. All I know how to do is fight. The best cash is in the states, so that's where I am now. A big fish called Vito came along offering me a "favor" when I arrived.

Another debt.

I paid for that one too.

I knew Kyla Hensley would be trouble when I met her. But I wanted her. I could see through the falsehood of her wannabe-slutty clothes and her sexy legs. So I chased her.

Besides, trouble is my middle name.

Kyla Hensley
I was brought up in privilege, but I lacked everything else. My father is a business tycoon who buys and sells and doesn't care who gets rolled over in the process.

I never knew my mother, and all I have of her is a photo with a note scrawled on the back in French saying "I'm sorry." The only Female Figure I had growing up is my dad's wife who is a bleach blond with seven boob jobs. We never bonded.

I drink. I party. I meet guys.

But I wasn't always like that.

I've had a string of lovers in the last few years, the worst and most recent of which was Vince Somerset. My best friend Vera was dating a guy called Rory Cansoom who is the opposite of Vince in so many ways, and yet so the same.

She and I hit the road for the summer, getting away from the two college psychos and just trying to have some fun.

But there's a funny thing about trouble, the more you run from it, the more it finds you.

Which is when I met the Debt Collector.

It was only supposed to be sex. He made that clear. I made that clear.

That's all it was supposed to be.

I never expected to fall in love. I never expected to fall so deeply, madly, uncomfortably in love with a man who is wrong, so wrong for me.

And yet...so unbelievably right.

I push my head back against the wall, not sure what’s coming, but not fighting it either.

“Who are you?” he repeats.

“I...I don’t know what you mean.”

“I see you at a bar in Texas, then I look for you all over Nashville. And suddenly you’re at my side in a hospital, following me into this warehouse. Who are you?”

“I didn’t follow you into the warehouse. You needed to pick up your truck, and you were stumbling.”


“So I wanted to make sure you were OK.”


And I want you to take my clothes off and I want us to live happily ever after. “That’s it.”

Logan grins, a deadly look for him with his dimples. “Don’t do that,” I say.



“Why not?”

Because you’re beautiful. “Just don’t.”

Historical Romance films are on the way
Am proud to announce the launch of "Project Princess" an adaptation of a historical romance novel into an animated feature film.

Launch date: Kickstarter on the 26th of January

Historical Romance films are the highest selling genre in the book world today but sadly there is a lack of dramatizations.

Hoping to change this, and the future of HR fictions, I am producing a film adapted from my novel "the Princess and the Count."

With memorable characters and breathtaking scenery, I plan on making an exceptional and entertaining 3D film which takes the viewers back into a special era in History.

Together with a crew of animators, technicians and voice actors, we will begin working on the film from March of 2016 and it is our hope to complete the entire film by the end of June of this year.

Please support me in the journey of Lady Elizabeth, who travels to Pladova to marry her Prince but finds love in the most unlikely of places.

The Book

The Princess And The Count by Nasreen Somji
Genre: historical romance

About The Princess And The Count:
Lady Elizabeth Ashton arrives alone in Pladova to marry Prince Alexander. Expecting to be greeted with much pomp she is surprised when nobody is there to welcome her.

She meets Count Nikolai Radosky who tells that there is a revolution and it would be better for her if she were to return back to England. She forces him to accompany her to the capital city where she would meet the Prince and the marriage could proceed.

The journey is not without its problem as they encounter dangerous situations.

Before long Liz loses her heart to the Count. What would she do now?
