Star Crossed is now available for preorder!


About Othala

Many years ago, the Original Sixteen witches were able to contain an outbreak of demon-like creatures from overtaking the earth. But doing so came at a cost. For the human race to survive, the world had to be divided into sixteen sectors, trapping the ravagers to the outer lands beyond, and trapping the humans in.

The Original Sixteen served as regents over each of these sectors, and when they died, the strongest of witches took their place, using their own personal enchantment abilities to protect their sector. In the process, communication was lost. The only solace that remains is the knowledge that if another sector fails, their own may still survive.

But what happens when your sector is the one to fail? What happens when the world inside your walls is just as bad as the one outside them? In this collection of sixteen dystopian paranormal romance tales, each and every one of the sixteen sectors is about to find out.

No matter which side of the coin she’s on, Star is destined to lose everything she loves.

To keep Sector Eleven in his bloodline, Jaden has to marry a pure witch. Born into the Regency, his challenge is to find a wife who satisfies his mother’s criteria while also managing to love him. Easier said than done when ambition supersedes the connection of hearts in a love mandate.

When Jaden asks Star to help him find a suitable mate, she agrees, but her heart doesn’t want any part of it. Forced to serve the Regency since she was born, Star has been raised to hide her magical ability from Jaden and his mother, for fear the Regent would carry out her promise to destroy Star if she ever showed a propensity for magic.


Star is not sure which is worse, exposing her secrets to the man she loves which will have her exiled to the ravagers, and certain death, or playing matchmaker and losing Jaden to someone else. No matter which side of the coin she’s on, she’s destined to lose everything she cares about.

Author Spotlight: Toni Allen

Being Richard by Toni Allen


Kindle .99c sale 12th – 18th Sept

A contemporary paranormal mystery/thriller about an immortal whose quiet life is disrupted.

Being immortal has never been easy.

Some people are born immortal – some are made immortal.

Towards the edge of Surrey, near the Hampshire border, lies the rural village of Elstead. If you follow the River Wey westwards you’ll arrive at Thundry Meadows, an ancient sacred site dedicated to the god Thor. It’s a place of beauty and mystery, where the river runs clean and owls hoot in the night. Over two and a half thousand years ago a man was born there, Sunbeerka, son of the swamp lord; bred to be sacrificed to Thor if the tribe was ever in danger, his destiny to give his life for the sake of his people. Some spirits refuse to die, and Sunbeerka lives on, quietly, near his birth place in Elstead.
He isn’t lonely, but being immortal has its downfalls. The recurrence of loss, the memories, and the continual need for a new identity before everyone questions why he looks so young. From the start he knew that Richard Ridley didn’t feel safe; dying in infancy, and apparently unloved. He has no intention of being Richard. But then a man turns up claiming to be from the Special Investigation Department; and he’s forced to take on Richard’s identity, or be locked up - forever. All the department wants is for him to help them find other immortals – or do they?

He’s terrified at having his life controlled by others, but can’t rest until he’s discovered why Richard’s short life upsets him so much. Defying the department’s instructions, he sets about investigating his history. Uncovering Richard’s past proves dangerous, even for an immortal.


Excerpt
The little ones were always easy to spot. A vigil of small black headstones, tucked away at the back of the cemetery, their teddies and trains weather beaten; the gold faded. Twilight and rain drops shrouded them in pathos, but come dusk the solar lights would flicker on, permanent candles used as protective sprites to ward demons away from these precious spirits. Such short lives, their pasts a heartbeat in time, their names etched in granite to live on forever. If I was lucky and could find someone suitable I would be able to help him live on far longer than his grieving parents ever imagined.
I wasn’t interested in the girls; and knew to avoid the ones with cherubs and angels. It was also best to avoid the ones with recent gifts. Steven Johnson may well have passed over in 1975, but the plastic Christmas tree; that would have endlessly chimed out silent night until its batteries ran down, warned that someone still cared, and cherished him.
A train rumbled past, heading south out of Ash Station having dumped its weary commuters back to Surrey. They would dice with the barriers and tail back of irritated drivers, all walk home fast to be away from the wind and threat of further rain. Their perfume and after-shave hitched a ride on the wind and dropped its heady scent on the wet grass. I could envisage the women click clacking past men in suits, high heels dodging puddles as they strained their backs to stay proud and upright while carrying heavy briefcases in the pursuit of equality. The men would duck their heads down and plough on, up the road and past the front of the church, searching for a key to a front door, and home, and comfort.
I turned back to my task and spotted Richard Ridley; wondered if he was a good enough contender for my attention. Born in 1979 he’d died three months later, much loved and missed by his devoted parents; who could only afford stone and not tough granite. I crouched to read the inscription. Lichen painted it green and although he was age appropriate I didn’t feel like sharing my life with someone that sad. It felt sad. He felt sad. Not that I was sad, that was an emotion I’d long since learnt to set aside. No, the boy had no history, no love, no - I sighed and jotted down his details. He was perfect.

Alessandra and Hunter have a price on their heads. Can they escape their fate, or will the sins of the past lead them to their death?

In the eyes of the werewolf council, Alessandra Tate and Hunter Blaez committed the ultimate sin. Humans were killed at the hands of a werewolf, and the price for taking a human life is death.

After being on the run for three months, Alessandra’s nightmares are still plagued with the acts of that evening. Never again will she trust a man to get close enough to betray her, even Hunter Blaez, her beta wolf and protector.

Hunter has other ideas. He has been in love with Alessandra for years, but all she ever saw was her second in command. Even rescuing her from certain death and following her into damnation wasn’t enough for her to see him as a man.

When the council catches Hunter, Alessandra must choose between surviving without him, or risking her life to save the only man she truly loves.

Introducing Linda Foster and Unnatural Souls

I want to welcome Linda Foster on my blog today.  Linda was born and raised in Colorado, where she still lives with her (very patient) husband, two (very spoiled) ferrets and (equally spoiled) dog. Linda became an avid reading enthusiast the moment she picked up her first book, and has grown steadily worse. By the time she was fifteen years old, her library had become too big for her shelves, and she was forced to donate all her books to the local school, just to make room for new ones. She started writing short novellas for her friends in middle school, and expanded into full-length novels several years later.

The Realm of the Claimed novellas are her first published work.



JET: Please, describe yourself in three words and tell us a bit about yourself!

LINDA: Wow, three words. Dreamer, Overthinker, and Passionate. I live in Colorado with my wonderful husband, two loveable ferrets and the cutest dog in the world. I work at a middle school, where I fit in quite nicely because I’m still a kid at heart. I love to do anything artistic and creative. Painting and writing are my favorites. When I’m not working or writing I really just enjoy hanging out with my family and friends.

JET: “Unnatural Soul” is a prequel to your forthcoming series “The Realm of the Claimed” with “Soul Bound” releasing early 2017. Please, could you introduce us to the world of the protagonists Kali and Ash?

LINDA: Ash was just another high school student, intent on living life to the fullest, winning his next lacrosse game, and making it to this weekend’s party in time. Until he was forced to sell his soul to a demon to save his sister’s life. Kali is a demon who fought in the first war in Heaven against – the now King of Hell – Adrian who dragged her down with him when he was cast out. Now she is trying to earn redemption and get back home by working with the angels, and making up for the sins she’s committed while in Hell.

Unnatural Soul is the story of Grace, Ash’s sister. She is just trying to save her brothers soul before the demon he sold it to comes to collect. She ends up being unwittingly responsible for forcing these two to work together in Soul Bound where they are tied together in a desperate fight for freedom, and an angel revolution that could lead to salvation … or the end of the world.

JET: Do you have a favorite genre to write? Or do you write any genre, depending on the ideas you get?

LINDA: YA is my favorite. There is so much you can do with Young Adult books, and so many ideas yet to be written for this market who is always thirsty for something new and exciting. Which pushes me, as a writer, to come up with something unlike anything else out there. As far as my sub-genre I like to believe I nicely mix drama, mystery, fantasy, paranormal, and romance together in one nice little package.

JET: Have you always wanted to become an author and how did you become an author?

LINDA: I have always, always, always wanted to write a book. I honestly started writing for myself, for the simple fun of it and because I had a story in my head that I wanted to read. I honestly never even thought I would someday become a published author. Once I finished the Manuscript I thought, why not try and get a publisher. With each rejection I grew a little more determined to actually make it happen. I just want to share my stories with the world, and hope that I bring some of the joy to readers that’s I’ve gotten from other authors over the years. I got very lucky when submitted to Carrie White-Parish and Glass House Press. She saw something in my writing and signed me. The rest is history.

JET:  How is your writing process? Are you a pantser or a plotter? And how well do you plan your characters and story before you start writing?

LINDA: I think writing is always a little bit of both of these. I find freewriting to be especially helpful when I have writers block, but my publisher has taught me it is always good to have a solid outline to keep a sense of where I am going next. I do basic plot outlines, character descriptions and settings, but having an outline doesn’t mean some things don’t change as I’m actually writing the story. It’s a roadmap and sometimes, when I’m lost in the creative world of writing, I like to take detours.

JET: Do you happen to have a playlist you use while writing? 

LINDA: I have an entire list of Spotify of over 50 songs that make up my Realm of the Claimed playlist so I’ll give you my top ten.
  1. A demons fate - Within Temptation
  2. Monster – Skillet
  3. Truth – Seether
  4. Comatose – Skillet
  5. Light ‘em up – Fall Out Boy
  6. I don’t care – Apoctalyptica
  7. Leave out all the rest – Linkin Park
  8. Always – Saliva
  9. The Successions Studios Playlist
  10. I’m not Okay – My Chemical Romance


JET: Thank you for answering my questions! Good luck for the future!

LINDA: Thank you for having me!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Linsey Hall is the author of the Mythean Arcana, an adventurous paranormal romance series set in Scotland and other exotic locales. Before becoming a romance novelist, Linsey was a nautical archaeologist who studied shipwrecks from Hawaii and the Yukon to the UK and the Mediterranean. She credits the historical romances of the 70's, 80's, and 90's with her love of history and her decision to become an archaeologist. After a decade of tromping around the globe in search of old bits of stuff, she settled down and started penning her own romance novels. Her books draw upon her love of history, travel, and the paranormal elements that she can't help but include. Several of her books may or may not feature her cats.
