Title: Addict (The Cassie Tam Files #1)
Author: Matt Doyle
Genre: Lesfic, Sci-fi, Crime Noir
Main character description (short):
Born in Vancouver, Cassie Tam is the daughter of a cop and an out lesbian. Now situated in the technological haven of New Hopeland City, she plies her trade as a Private Investigator, taking on odd job cases that the police either don’t care about or won’t touch. She’s built up a good reputation over the years and tends to solve cases with a healthy mix of the three S’s: smarts, snark, and sheer stubbornness. Oh, and the odd assist from her robo-gargoyle pet, Bert. Despite her tough exterior though, Cassie is prone to keeping stuff in, and is more than capable of finding social awkwardness when faced with the unfamiliar. That combined with her compulsion to keep digging, even when she knows she shouldn’t, can often leave her biting off more than she can chew.
New Hopeland was built to be the centre of the technological age, but like everywhere else, it has its dark side. Assassins, drug dealers and crooked businessmen form a vital part of the city’s make-up, and sometimes, the police are in too deep themselves to be effective. But hey, there are always other options …
For P.I. Cassie Tam, business has been slow. So, when she’s hired to investigate the death of a local VR addict named Eddie Redwood, she thinks it’ll be easy money. All she has to do is prove that the local P.D. were right to call it an accidental overdose. The more she digs though, the more things don’t seem to sit right, and soon, Cassie finds herself knee deep in a murder investigation. To make matters worse, Cassie’s client, the deceased’s sister Lori, is a Tech Shifter – someone who uses a metal exoskeleton to roleplay as an animal. Cassie isn’t one to judge, but the Tech Shifting community has always left her a bit nervous. That wouldn’t be a problem if Lori wasn’t fast becoming the first person that she’s been genuinely attracted to since splitting with her ex.
Easy money, huh? Yeah, right.
Brief Excerpt 250 words:
I ALWAYS DID like Venetian blinds. There’s something quaint about them in a retro-tacky kinda way. Plus, they’re pretty useful for sneaking a peek out the front of the building if I feel the need. That’s something that you just can’t do with the solid, immovable metal slats that come as a standard in buildings these days. That said, a thick sheet of steel is gonna offer you a damn sight more security than thin, bendable vinyl, so I keep mine installed. Just in case.
Another round of knocking rattles the front door, louder this time than the one that woke me.
The clock says 23:47, and the unfamiliar low-end car out front screams “Don’t notice me, I’m not worth your time,” which makes for the perfect combo to stir up the paranoia that the evening’s beer and horror-film session left behind. This is my own fault. My adverts are pretty descriptive in terms of telling what I do: lost pets, cheating partners, theft, protection, retrieval of people and items, other odds and sods that the city’s finest won’t touch…I’ve got ways to deal with it all. That’s right, I’m a real odd-job gal. The one thing that I don’t put in there are business hours. The way I see it, even the missing pet cases usually leave me wandering the streets at half-past reasonable, so what’s the point in asking people to call between certain hours?
More knocking, followed this time by the squeak of my letterbox.
Why should readers buy this book (50 words max)? Described as Sam Spade meets Blade Runner, Addict throws an old-style PI into a near future world and blends sci-fi world building with noir corruption. If you want a speculative fiction title with an LGBT lead that isn’t a coming out tale or erotica, this is the book for you!
Title: War of Nytefall: Loyalty
Author: Charles E. Yallowitz
Genre: Action Adventure Fantasy, Vampires
Main character description (short): Clyde was a vampiric thief, but the Great Cataclysm and fifty years of being buried alive has changed him. He has returned with more strength, speed, and ferocity than has ever been seen among the vampires. While fuelled by arrogance and confidence, he is aware that Windemere is not the same world he previously thrived in. Even worse, Clyde must contend with a savage bloodlust that even his old friends might be unable to help him keep under control.
In the wake of the Great Cataclysm, a new predator will emerge from within Windemere’s shadow.
For fifty years, Clyde has been trapped beneath the earth while the vampire kingdom has been gradually losing its war against the Sun God’s followers. Only Mab believes that her partner survived his holy execution and is determined to bring him back to the city of Nyte. Retrieving the vampiric thief is only the beginning as he comes out of the ground stronger, faster, and possessing abilities that their kind have never witnessed throughout their ancient history. Thrown into the war, Clyde must be careful to hide his true nature while fighting alongside his old friends. Too bad he is having so much fun being free that keeping his secret might be the furthest thing from his mind.
Will anyone be ready for the inevitable rise of the Dawn Fangs?
Brief Excerpt 250 words:
“Let me give you a hand,” Mab says while taking him by the wrist. She immediately jumps back and lets her friend fall to the ground, her eyes wide with fear. “You have a pulse! What is going on here, Clyde? You can’t be human again after what I saw you do, but vampires don’t have heartbeats.”
“This is new to me too, so let’s keep it between us,” Clyde requests as he puts his fingers against his neck. He is about to gesture a spell to cover the unexpected change, but he finds that the trick appears with the merest thought. “Okay, I have it masked and we’ll get it checked out once we can visit Gregorio. I did say that things felt really weird down there, right? Well, I’m saying it now if that counts. Anyway, we don’t want to keep Xavier waiting. He might not be expecting me, but he’ll want to know where you are. I’d rather meet him on friendly terms than running into his men. What’s say we grab a bite and head out?”
Cocking her head to the side, Mab casually reaches out with growing claws and calmly tears open up her friend’s chest in one movement. “Yeah, it’s beating. Looks tasty, which is kind of gross to think about. I mean, I’ve seen vampire hearts before and they’re usually dull red with black veins. This reminds me of the time mine was nearly torn out by that troll and you had to hold it in while fighting since I was dismembered too.”
“Do you mind, Mab?” Clyde asks, smacking her hands away.
Why should readers buy this book (50 words max)?
War of Nytefall: Loyalty is an exciting adventure full of action, magic, and colourful characters. It is designed for pure escapism to help people leave reality and relax. It’s also a story where all of the characters are vampires, who act both monstrous and oddly human.

Well, in this bundle https://bundlerabbit.com/b/here-be-dragons#cbp=/products/detail/crown-dragon, you will find my debut novel. The Crown and the Dragon is an epic fantasy about an uncrowned princess and an outlaw with a price on his head. Thrown together on the road by fate, they are pursued by a blood-soaked sorceror, an occupying army, a demon monster made of crows, and a dragon of mass destruction. They have nothing in common, but somehow they end up saving the kingdom and falling in love.
Also in this bundle is Dragon Writers: An Anthology, which happens to feature one of my stories. “Lullaby” is about a mommy dragon (and a daddy dragon) trying to get noisy little ones to pipe down and go to sleep. I wrote it in my head while rocking my own kiddos to sleep. In fact, I was rocking our second child when my phone informed me that this story had been accepted to the anthology. I said “Awesome!” which woke my little boy just enough to barf all down my shirt. Lots of other great stories in this book, but I don’t know that any of the others have received this particular mark of quality.
Write what you love, but also try new things. You never know when you’re going to find something new that you love doing.
I heard: “Don’t try it. It’s impossible to make a living as a writer, and you’ll waste years of your life trying and failing.” And for a while, I believed this.
But! Anything worth doing takes years to learn. And while you’re learning, you won’t be making much money. And there’s going to be a lot of failures along the way. This is normal in any field of study, in any trade, in any new venture. But are any of those as much fun as playing make-believe? If your answer is an emphatic NO, then write.
And don’t worry if you can’t spend eight hours a day at this. Take twenty or thirty minutes every day and write one page. In 365 days, you’ll have a 365 page novel. Then move on to the next one, and the next. So what if they’re not perfect? You’re learning. And having fun!
Just finishing a short story for D.J. Butler’s anthology of Mormon Steampunk. It’s about two stowaways on a giant steam-powered land ship heading out west with the pioneers. One is a Danish house-gnome following one of his household, and the other is a labor automaton who decided the Emancipation Proclamation applied to him. It was my first ever steampunk story, and I had a blast writing it. Not every day I get to talk about Elizabeth Barrett Browning, salty black licorice, and the alchemist Paracelsus in the same story!
As a stay-at-home dad with a kindergartener, a preschooler, and a toddler (so far), the mythical person I most envy is Sleeping Beauty. To conk out for a hundred years? Man, that is the life. Tell you what, if I ever see a spinning wheel I am going to be stabbing my finger with that spindle. You never know, right?
When we were house-hunting for our current place, I was so excited to see that it had a room that would work as an office. Good natural light, out of the way but close to the bathroom. Perfect! I lined the walls with bookshelves and set up the world’s best futon, so I could write sitting or lying down. (I don’t like to stay in the same position too long when I write.) I put a mini-fridge in the closet and filled it with my very favorite Brazilian soda pop (Guaraná Antarctica), and made sure to stock some snacks so I could stay in there for hours and just write.
Naturally, the kids have decided this is the funnest room in the house, and absolutely will not leave me alone when I’m in there. So I do a lot of my daytime writing at our church, sitting on a couch in the foyer with pillows I steal from the mothers’ lounge. It’s not nearly as comfy as my office at home, but there’s usually nobody else there so it’s nice and quiet. Which is really all I need.
Most of my reading is actually listening. It’s a habit I picked up back when I had a long commute. So the last audiobook I listened to was Food: A Cultural Culinary History by Ken Albala. The first three-quarters of the book (everything up to about 1800 AD or so) was full of great new information. And it made me want to try the recipes!
If we’re just talking about fiction, my most recent read was Obstacles, Volume 1 of the Acts of Androkles, by Ryan English, which I read as an ebook. Set in a world much like our own ancient Greece, it’s the tale of a hardened warrior who sets out on a quest for vengeance and along the way finds a family. It’s like 300 meets Payback, plus The Bad News Bears. Or maybe Horsin’ Around.
I think the wisest course (and the happiest) is to avoid reading reviews, much less commenting on them. But if I was going to comment, it would probably be to thank a fan for leaving the review. Or to let someone know I was glad they noticed something I worked hard on.
I mostly do research as I go, when I bump into something I need to know to write the scene. For example, the novel I’m working on now is a superhero book that takes place in a city built on the old Roanoke Colony. So I’ve been learning a lot about the Outer Banks in North Carolina. But lots of other stuff, too. For scenes in the last few chapters, I’ve researched all of the following: garbage trucks, supermodels, barbecue, electromagnets, she-crab soup, secret societies, mary jane pumps, tax fraud, dark energy, good pistols for women to concealed-carry, missing planets, and the demon wife Adam had before Eve.
Bilbo Baggins. That little dude knows how to lay out a spread. And I think I’d want to drop in for Elevensies, so we could do breakfast food, brunch food, and lunch food. All of which will feature bacon. Yum!
People love stories, and they get them in a lot of different ways. Leaving out movies, comic books, TV, games, etc., and just thinking about written fiction, there are so many ways to deliver it these days. Hardcovers, mass-markets, trade paperbacks, ebooks, audiobooks, etc. People might buy your novel online, or in their local bookstore. They might borrow it from a friend, or from a library. You can chop it up into chapters and serialize it in magazines (print or electronic), a newsletter, on blogs, podcasts, or Patreon.
Ebooks are great, but they’re not the only way to experience a story (or to reach an audience). This is the age of innovation, of creativity. I think this is the best time in the history of the world to be sharing your stories. There are just so many options! And it’s only going to get better.
As soon as I finish my superhero book, I’m finishing (and revising) a novel that follows on from a story I wrote for One Horn to Rule Them All: A Purple Unicorn Anthology. In the story, an awkward grad student (Lem) finally gets the courage to ask out the cute hipster girl (Pris) who’s always reading at his stop. But what he doesn’t know (that the reader does) is that she’s really a secret watcher from another dimension.
The book is set a few months after their disastrous first date. Pris shows up out of nowhere on Lem’s doorstep, reveals her true identity, and asks him to help her unravel a sinister conspiracy that spans the multiverse. They have 48 hours to clear her name, save earth from extradimensional spies, and win the film competition at the local Con. And maybe . . . have a second date?
Meet the author: John D. Payne grew up in the American midwest watching the lightning flash outside his window and imagining himself as everything from a leaf on the wind to the god of thunder. Today, he lives with his wife and family at the foot of the Organ Mountains in New Mexico, where he focuses his weather-god powers on rustling up enough cloud cover for a little shade.
His debut novel, The Crown and the Dragon, is a thrilling epic fantasy published by WordFire Press. His short fiction has been published in anthologies like Tales of Ruma and magazines like Leading Edge.
Welcome back to Walter Rhein, fantasy author. He’s visited a couple of times before, but he’s back to talk about his exciting new release.
My latest book is called ‘The Literate Thief‘ and it is the second book in a three-part series entitled ‘The Slaves of Erafor.’ I first embarked on this journey when I met Janet Morris on Facebook. Having some discussions with her inspired me to put together a narrative I’d been daydreaming about. The narrative involved slavery, but not in the historical sense. I wanted to approach the idea of how we all become slaves of thought to various ideas, and what the cause of this widespread slavery is.
The scary thing is that this series has become more relevant. I’m seeing more and more instances of narrative control in the media, particularly in the United States. However, I didn’t write this book as a response to US politics. I wrote it as a general condemnation of evil as it tends to manifest. Any similarities to current events are purely coincidental.
I think it’s important to know that the idea that ‘quality work finds an audience’ is something of a myth. Sure, maybe over time a quality book will gain traction, but you really have to publicize it. The publishing world is very corrupt. I meet a lot of people with Master’s Degrees in English and they make me want to pull their hair out because a lot of what they’ve been taught to believe is simply not true.
Also, literature is very elitist. There are many poverty class writers out there who are producing fantastic work and the literary community completely ignores them. When I say ‘poverty-class’ I’m talking about storytellers that you might come across in bars or other places. I’ve heard stories told in bars that are better than anything that would ever come out of a prestigious magazine by highly educated writers. I think those highly educated writers resent their lack of talent, and the grand talent that can be found elsewhere, and they take action to make sure those voices are silenced.
Willy Wonka. Chocolate.
4. What are your views on authors offering free books? Do you believe, as some do, that it demeans an author and his or her work?
I don’t understand how you can promote a book without giving some copies away. After all, don’t you send a book to the publisher for free? It’s not like publishers pay you to read your work now is it?
The reality is that all major publisher give away hundreds, if not thousands of advance reader copies in order to hit the market riding the crest of a wave of reviews. Sometimes indie writers are held to a different standard than major publishers on this issue, which doesn’t make any sense to me.
I don’t think it demeans the work at all. You want people to read what you wrote and that’s not easy to do. If you think something is important enough to put in the effort to publish it, then you shouldn’t have any qualms about doing whatever you can to get as many people as possible to read it.
I actually just did this on my own blog. There was a review that I really appreciated on Amazon, so I took the text and responded to it on my blog, you can read it here. Responding to reviews is very important I think, as long as you don’t do it in a way that makes you look foolish. I find that the reviews I’ve received have greatly helped me improve my work, and they direct the sequels a little bit too. Interacting with readers is the whole point of this endeavor.
However, I would say don’t respond on Amazon, because Amazon might freak out and delete your whole account. It’s always important to bring the debate to a platform where you have control.
I haven’t gotten too many lately, but that’s just a by-product of my current popularity I think. I have a wonderful group of followers who offer genuine comments and are excited about my books. If I move up to the next level, a little bit more mainstream level, I’m sure I’ll get more negative reviews. If a reviewer offers what I believe to be a viable point, I’m always grateful to them. However, it’s irritating when you get a negative review for some reason that’s absolutely absurd. But it’s like getting into an argument on Facebook, you have to trust that the next person who comes along can see which person is arguing in semi-coherent sentence fragments, and which one seems to flash a little education.
The toughest critic I’ve encountered so far is Janet Morris, but when she points something out I’ve always agreed that something had to be changed. Sincere criticism makes you a better writer, so I’m always appreciative of that.
I have extensive notes for two books, first is the follow up to ‘The Literate Thief’ which will be the third book in the series. There will be something of a conclusion to a major narrative thread in this volume, but I’ve not dismissed the idea of doing a fourth volume.
I also have a book about education that I’ve been scribbling notes for. I haven’t quite figured out what the tone for that one will be, but I think it has to be comical, something like ‘Catch-22.’ I’ve written a dozen or so chapters for it, but I haven’t quite gotten the narrative voice figured out. Once I get it, I’m pretty sure the book will flow out of me quickly, but you can’t push it in the meantime.
I’m currently reading ‘The Scarecrow‘ by Cas Peace. It’s one of her Albia stories and it’s fantastic. Peace is a great writer that more people should be aware of.
Without a doubt. The reality is that if you go mainstream you’re going to get the same old safe narrative over and over again. Mainstream follows the trends and indie sets them. I was in a Barnes & Noble the other day and I took a picture of the front display just because there wasn’t a single book on sale that I had any interest in reading whatsoever. It’s all book adaptations of powerful films and biographies of boring celebrities that are famous for doing nothing. Who wants to be traditionally published when that’s the kind of garbage you have to write?
I’m published with Perseid Publishing, a small press owned by Janet Morris. Morris is a very well-respected writer, but I still find that I’m regarded with skepticism among certain writing communities. I’ve come to believe that the literary community is, to some extent, more interested in silencing voices than giving them a platform. This makes sense if you consider the money angle. It’s easy enough to understand that some groups don’t want a book to be widely read if it doesn’t make money for their company. That’s a case where the quality of a work is irrelevant.
I remember one instance where I was at the Chippewa Valley Book Festival. I was selected for this festival and I was sitting at a meeting with one of the other authors who was regarding me with undisguised contempt. I started talking with her and she clearly had the sense that I didn’t deserve to be there. Now, this was a writer I’d never heard of, and whose name I can’t even remember. It just struck me as very strange that she’d be so critical of somebody who had a publisher and who had been selected to appear in the festival. But that’s a very prevalent attitude.
Who knows? Maybe they’re scared and intimidated.
I always aspire to have something useful in my books. I don’t know if it’s a “message” but it’s an encouragement to at least start thinking about certain problems or issues. A person can be greatly empowered just by examining something that s/he always believed was true without question.
Sometimes if you line up a bunch of ideas, people connect the dots and come to a new conclusion about something they’re carrying around in their mind. The fact is that there’s a lot of junk in our mind that doesn’t do us any good. In fact, it was put there on purpose to not do us any good. The difficult thing is that a lot of people have become very attached to that junk and if you try to tell them to throw it away, they become very offended. So what you have to do is set up the whole argument and have them walk along the argument with you, and at the end, hopefully they come to the realization themselves.
My hope is that I’m helping people remove the junk. Others might say I’m contributing to the problem. The good thing about writing is that, in the end, the reader can listen to you or not.
It’s just something I have to do. If I don’t write for a long period I start feeling really bad, like groggy. It just helps me take a break from thinking, or carrying ideas around in my mind. Once they’re recorded I can stop worrying about them, I guess they become somebody else’s problem at that point.
Mainly I think of my kids. Growing up I always felt that there were a dozen or so pieces of information that adults could have given me and I would have had a much easier life. I’m trying to make sure I get as many good little nuggets of information nailed down for my kids to find as I possibly can. The thing is, there are a lot of lies out there. There are false narratives used to make you beholden to some other entity or individual. That’s the kind of thing that writing can fight against, but it’s an eternal struggle.
Thanks for having me!
Character Name – Jesslynn Cotterill
Which book/world do you live in? The Amaranthine Universe (You can find me not only in my own short story, but as a side character in Shades of Gray and Brothers of Darkness)
Tell us about yourself: What is there to tell? I’m married to Oren and now that his mother has finally passed away manage our plantation in Virginia. I’m a mother of two children, Alexander and Tristan. My story takes place before the War Between the States in Virginia.
What are your greatest strengths and weaknesses?
I may not be beautiful, but I’m clever. I believe that brains will triumph over beauty always.
Name three important people/creatures/institutions in your world (such as lovers, pets, government institutions, leaders, gods etc).
My husband Oren is important, of course. I mentioned my children. Though I have birthed many, only Alexander has grown out of babyhood, and now Tristan, not even a year old, is showing signs of the same malady that took the others. It is because of this that I should mention our neighbour, Jorick. An odd man, he is rarely home, and when he is he never walks in sunlight, only under dark skies. Neither does he seem to age or sicken. It is a secret I desperately need to discover if I want to save my sick child.
What does ‘heroism’ mean to you?
Heroism is the strength to do what must be done for the good of all, even if you, yourself, are afraid of it. Just as I am afraid of what secret Jorick carries, yet I know we need it if Tristan is to survive.
What do you think of your ‘creator’?
I assume you mean my author? I have a rather low opinion of her, I’m afraid, as she’s happily stuck me in a dark world with very little chance for light.
Give us your favourite piece of advice:
Beauty fades, leaving only your wit and resourcefulness. Cultivate those over the appearance of the flesh.
Links to book
Shades of Gray:
Welcome to Joleene Naylor.
What attracts you to the genre in which you write?
Joleene Naylor: I write what most people call urban fantasy (though my vampires are rarely in an urban setting.) Fantasy has always been my favourite, and vampires are so versatile that I can find a story to fit every mood. For instance, my Patrick novel is pretty much straight horror, while the Heart of the Raven arc, in the Amaranthine series, is pure fantasy (with an evil “wizard”, a quest, and a group of adventurers). Meanwhile, my upcoming novel is a contemporary road trip, and the short story I have in Nightly Bites Volume 2 is more paranormal/historical.
What piece of writing advice do you wish you’d known when you started your writing adventures?
Jo: I did a lot of research before I jumped in, so I pretty much knew what I was in for.
If you could have dinner with any famous person or character who would you choose?
Jo: I’d like to have dinner with Edgar Allan Poe to discuss his poem “The Bells”. Every teacher I’ve had claims it is an ode to bells. I say it’s written by someone who’s sick of listening to them. I’m interested to see who’s right.
Who has been the greatest influence on your own work?
Jo: There have been a lot of influences! Recently it was CG Coppola (author of the Arrizel War series). I noticed that it was hard to put her books down, because she ended most chapters (where possible) with something exciting – so that you had to start the next chapter to find out what was going on. Since then, I’ve been trying to implement that in my own books.
Do you think the e-book revolution will do away with print?
Jo: No. At least not for a very long time. I know too many people who don’t like ebooks.
Which 3 books would you take to a desert island and why?
Jo: I’m going to cheat: 1) Lord of the Rings omnibus by JRR Tolkien, 2) Complete works of Poe and 3) The Faun and the Woodcutter’s Daughter by Barbara Leonie Picard. That should give me enough to fit every mood.
Author bio and book synopsis
Please introduce yourself (250 words or so):
My name is Joleene Naylor, and I’m the author of the paranormal Amaranthine Universe. When I’m not writing I watch anime, create book covers for other authors, and work on my renovating my leaning Victorian house in Villisca, Iowa, where I’m surrounded by family, cats, and chaos.
Tell us about your book(s) – title, genre etc (short)
The Amaranthine Universe began when Katelina found her “special friend” dead in his locked apartment. Three months later the mysterious Jorick insists they meet, and reveals that Patrick was murdered by vampires. Nine books later, Katelina and Jorick have faced the Executioners (vampire police), ancient monsters, powerful relics, old conspiracies, and more. Along with the series is the standalone Prequel Brothers of Darkness (Patrick’s Story), as well as short story collections (including Vampire Morsels and Tales of the Executioners). Upcoming novels include a vampire road trip novel (yet to be named), a trilogy that plunges years into the future, and maybe a gothic novella, and/or a standalone Executioner mystery.
