About the Book

Rylee is a normal girl, living in a normal world. At least that’s what she thinks until an Onyx Warrior tells her the truth. She is trapped in a dream world by an ancient and powerful vampire, while he feeds on her blood at his leisure. Worse, her only chance for escape is likely to get her killed.

Saturday Sneak Peeks: March Short Story

Designed by Kathryn Jenkins at Magical Designs


As promised, this week I have a sneak peek from my March short story. It’s a new genre for me, so I’m a bit nervous about it, but also excited at the same time. It’s with the editor now and will be ready for its 15th of March release.

My only problem is I haven’t been able to decide on a title and I would love some feedback on the cover as well, so I put together a poll and would love to here from you.

Help me Give my Story a Title and Cover!

Rylee had been feeling as though she had woken in an alternate reality lately. People walked the streets like zombies, with their blank, emotionless expressions. Every morning she followed the same routine, and nothing seemed to change.

“Good morning,” she said to a passerby.

The woman looked at her as though she was trying to figure out if someone had actually spoken to her, then walked off.

“People are so rude,” Rylee said under her breath.

She lifted her pastry to take another bite. Even the food hadn’t been the same. Almost tasteless. She couldn’t even seem to smell anything. Had the world always been this way, and she didn’t notice? She hoped she wasn’t getting sick. Just as the pastry touched her lips, someone grabbed her arm and pulled her into the alleyway.

Rylee opened her mouth to scream, but a gloved hand muffled the sound.

“Be quiet. There are listeners everywhere. You’re in danger, but I’m here to help,” a woman said.

Rylee turned to face the woman as soon as she released her. “Danger? What do you mean? Wait! What’s a listener? Who are you?”

Author Spotlight: Cover Reveal for A Father’s Protection by KJ Hawkins

KJ is a friend of mine and just getting her start in publishing her work, although she’s been helping other authors for quite a while now. I’m glad to finally be able to start featuring some of her work on my Author Spotlights. 😀 Today I’m doing a cover reveal for short story she has written, called A Father’s Protection, which is part of her Tales of Ferres Series.

31419158_mKJ Hawkins is a young fantasy author making her way into print. She has had a strong love for fantasy since she was nine years old.

As an adult the magic stayed with her inspiring her to write stories of adventure and magic.  Hawkins, at her best, brings personality to every word she writes, exciting her readers with every page.

Fun Fact

KJ Hawkins is actually a pen name taken from the initials of her real first and last name. Hawkins came from her favorite childhood film, Treasure Planet, the lead character is James Hawkins!

KJ Hawkins would like to acknowledge and thank K Tolentino. She created a beautiful cover for “A Father’s Protection.” Her design was spot on and shows how talented as a designer and illustrator she is.

A Father’s Protection

Will he be able to find Digger and make it out alive? The battle to protect his own will be tested when DarkDeath faces off against an old rival. Death lingering over his pup’s head will test his strengths as DarkDeath braces himself for battle.
