ImageBook Description:

Haylee Smith is dead, she just doesn’t know it yet.

Her short life was devoted to love and to hate. Love of the man who stole her heart, hate for the man who stole the world. Murdered by the government she swore to destroy, fate has given her another chance to make it right. But to save the planet, she needs the help of the most powerful mystic the world has ever seen—unfortunately he hasn’t been born yet.

In a world where fear is the only currency, Dephon has committed the ultimate crime: inspiring hope.

His only goal is to make it safely through ninth grade, but on a post-apocalyptic Earth run by the Treptonian government, it isn’t that simple. Heir to a legendary

power, Dephon Johnson is the only threat to the government’s rule. And on Trepton, all threats must be eliminated. When hundreds of assassins are dispatched to neutralize him, Dephon is forced to fight back. His only chance of survival is to enlist the aid of the greatest warrior the world has ever known. The only problem is, she’s been dead for 13 years.

Excerpt:

 

A scream rippled through the emerald-green sea. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” Singleton groaned. I sighed deeply, trying to remain composed. Another scream pierced our ears, this one coming from a different direction. Within seconds the horizon was filled with no less than twenty of the slug-like creatures traveling with chilling military-style precision towards us. They were all swimming from different directions, their eyes flickering in the distance.

 

Hyles, leave.”

 

No,” I said firmly.

 

I’m losing too much blood as it is. I’ll never make it back and who’ll avenge my mother? Get out of here. I will not watch you die too! Do it now, Hyles!”

 

Would you leave me?” I challenged him, racking my mind for a course of attack.

 

I gripped my sword awkwardly in my hand as I tried to keep Singleton afloat with the other one. “Hyles, just go or we’ll both die.” The creatures were close enough for us to see their rattling teeth. The combined effect of their screams was enough to shatter our eardrums. “Hyles, go!” he said again. The creatures were no more than eight feet away, and it was clear that neither of us was getting out of here alive.

 

About the Authors:

Folami and Abeni Morris are a sister-sister writing team. Together they wrote (and rewrote) The Exemeus series, somehow managing to accomplish it without murdering one another. Despite their facial similarities, tendency to finish each other’s thoughts and stick up for each other constantly, no, they’re not twins and thus deserve their own individual bio.

Folami Morris

Folami grew up in the tiny city of San Mateo Ca, where nothing ever happens and no one ever leaves. She went to Xavier University for undergraduate, getting her B.A in physics and her B.S in Biology. After graduation she returned to California, to live in an even smaller city, where even less happens, Antioch Ca. During this time she escaped the monotony by hanging out with her imaginary friends Hyalee and Dephon, and by writing the Exemeus.

She finally escaped to Queens NY and now realizes that quiet and tiny aren’t so bad.

Abeni Morris

As luck (and logic) would have it, Abeni grew up in the same tiny little town as her sister, then she too escaped to the tinier town of Antioch. She has yet to leave. She received her bachelor’s degree in early childhood development from Cal State East Bay. She is the mom of two amazing kids, who swear that they deserve a percentage of the book proceeds and a ton of the credit. At least she raised dreamers.

Halloween is Near, Is There Something to Fear?

scary houseSpooktacular giveaway hopA friend of mine asked my baby boy, just 16 months old, what he’s going to be for Halloween. The first thought that popped into my head, was “Crap! That’s next weekend.” We have a party to go to and I haven’t even thought about what to dress my three children up as, let alone my own costume. I know, talk about procrastination. Yes, I am that, to the point that I’ll be late for my own funeral. However, the reason I haven’t considered the upcoming holiday, one of my favorite times of year, is because I just got married.

As a romance writer, I love a good love story. Yesterday was just as I’d write in a book. Right

Justyn and Sara Tiblier

Justyn and Sara Tiblier

down to the things my husband said while we stood next to a john boat, in the freezing cold. I started to cry and realized I’d never once made my heroines act like that when they were told such wonderful things as “you’re the best thing that ever happened to me,” or “you saved me.” The story I’m working on now doesn’t call for such emotion as it’s more erotica than romance but I will be using this real life experience to fuel my characters for some time to come.

Now that the wedding is over, it’s time to get back to reality and plan yet another fun party. My son wants to be a Transformer, and I will probably be a Greek Goddess. I came up with a wonderful idea today for my daughter and baby son. Little Miss Muffet Little Miss Muffettand the spider who sat down beside her! Leave it to a writer to get fuel from a story. 🙂

How do you get ideas for costumes? And what’s your favorite part of Halloween? Besides the year round supply of candy, of course.

Be sure to follow my blog and comment for your chance to win a free e-book copy of my new paranormal romance, Heart Over Mind.

Perhaps it’s my love of the Supernatural, but October is such an awesome month for me. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love seeing all the children dress up in such cute costumes. Every year, I try to something a bit different than other people. A Hippie, bar wench, a vampire countess. Marie LaveauLast year, I was the famous Marie Laveau. I know most people have no idea who this is, so I’m going to post a Youtube video for any interested parties. When my daughter was just 6 months old, she loved this song. To this day, even though she’s 5, we still call her this. I love it because it brings back memories of my deceased grandmother. She loved this song, and her name was Marie.

Voodoo is a fascinating subject, and Voodoo Priestesses are so interesting. I would love to meet one in person. If you know any great sites, feel free to share. I need all the research I can get. I’ll be writing a book about Voodoo in a few years. As part of the rules for this blog hop, I’ve decided I’m going to do a contest a bit different than usual. I’m going to post a question. All you have to do to answer it is listen to the song. Post your answer and I’ll use Random.org to draw a winner. The prize is a free copy of my ebook, Heart Over Mind, released Sept 14. If you like stories of fairies, dragons, magic, sex, romance or any other paranormal being, this might be the type of story for you. Everyone be sure to check out the rest of the authors participating in this great blog hop and if you’re a blogger, sign up to join us.

Thanks for reading. Happy Halloween everyone!witch
