Book Description:

Shea Harper is forced to stay in boring, hot and dry Phoenix, Arizona for college. But once she meets the enigmatic yet positively egocentric Lucian, Shea’s life changes forever.

She finds out that she comes from a long line of descendants called Vessels. In her soul is the key to destroying an ancient prison protecting the world from darkness itself: Lucian’s father.

Up until now, Lucian has captured every descendant except Shea. With her powers awakening, all vampires want to drag her down to the pit. But Lucian is territorial. She’s the first female Vessel… and he’s convinced she belongs to him.

Saucy and tauntingly surprising, Black Moon captures the struggle between burning alive with desire and castrating the heart. This is a love story that will drain you dry.

F.M. Sherrill:

fmsherrillAren’t author’s bios boring? I always wanted to read one that went something like this:

F.M. Sherrill: recent citizen of earth. Plans on ruling the planet once she gets over the common cold. Or, F.M. Sherrill: time traveler. Decided to alter the space-time continuum by writing a novel, thus changing history slightly, which will eventually lead to the rise of a new human species.

But here it is. F.M. Sherrill is a novelist, A.K.A. an avid bullshitter; that’s why she lives in L.A.. She’s been writing for as long as her ancient mind can remember, devouring tales like an anemic vampire roaming the streets in hot pink heels, always thirsty for more. When she’s not writing, she’s making steampunk weapons, sewing giant plant-eater Mario plushes, making costumes for some film bloke or cosplayer, and sculpting/casting movie prop replicas while gardening in her urban apartment. Her favorite tools? A soldering iron, a blowtorch, a band saw, a sonic screwdriver, a replicator and an active imagination.

Guest Blog & Giveaway: Faeries and “Black Moon”

Oh, my lovely readers . . . I have such a delectable treat for you today! Author Jessica McQuay is blogging about Faeries and her new release, “Black Moon”. And to make your day a little sweeter, she’s also hosting a scrumptious giveaway. I’m talking SWAG~! Be sure to read to the very end for contest details and more information about “Black Moon”. 

Faeries and Black Moon
by Jessica McQuay

Hello everyone! First I’d like to take a moment to thank Deb for hosting me today! It’s an honor to be here posting with your followers. =)

Growing up, I was a huge fan of fairies. I had mad Tinkerbell love going on. LOL! I watched every movie she made an appearance in, read every book I could get my hands on with her in it and I collected tons of little porcelain and glass Tink figurines. I couldn’t get enough of the magical creatures with wings. I was obsessed with the ability to fly and the fairy attachment to nature.

As I grew, my love waned, but only slightly. It started to morph into something else. Of course I learned along the way that fairies weren’t real. But I was still captivated by the idea of magic…but not just any magic, fairy magic. Then I discovered the world of books out there about fey! I shed my Tinkerbell loving days for the magical world of the Faery.

Black Moon is about a girl that believes she’s ordinary. But within a few pages of the story she finds out that she is anything but. She is then thrust into a magical, foreign world where the things she grew up believing were fairytales are actually based on reality. She gets to experience not only the life of a Fae, but the life of Fae royalty. The land of Varulean, (the Faery dimension), is run by the Queen and the King, but the Queen is the one with the power. The line of Fae women are the ones that take over the throne when the time comes. And the magical abilities of the Fae on Varulean range from simple nature related spells to being able to read the minds of others.

My love for Faeries ties into the magical feeling you have as a child. You know the one I’m talking about, right? Where you believe anything is possible and magic is real and Santa really DOES bring you presents every Christmas Eve! Despite being forced to grow up, that sense of magic has never left me. Yep, you read that right. I still believe in magic. I just hope that I can pass that same sense of something magical on to my own children. =D

Thank you again to Deb! I truly appreciate you allowing me to stop by and talk about my love of Fae with your readers!

Happy Reading everyone!

Book Description:

“Am I losing my mind?”

Paige couldn’t help but question her sanity. What other explanation could there be for her hearing a conversation held barely above a whisper in the back of a classroom full of students? What about coming home to find one of those very classmates lying in wait in the darkness of her home, ready to attack her?

Confused, frustrated and feeling every ounce of her social ostracism, Paige confides in the one person she’s always been able to count on: her mom. But when her mom reveals a deeply rooted, unbelievable family secret, Paige discovers her world is filled with more than she ever imagined possible. A world where fairytales live alongside nightmares and secrets are the glue that binds them together. Suddenly no one is who they seem and Paige is faced with more questions than answers. Can she survive in a world filled with creatures scarier than anything she could imagine and where deceit runs as thick as blood? Or will the truth send her over the edge?

When she isn’t working on the next Paige Tailor novel, taking her children to one activity or another, or folding the never ending laundry of a six person family, Jessica enjoys playing her clarinet in the community band, reading while enjoying a cup of coffee or heading to the theater and catching a movie with her husband.
