Sabrina Samples

Hi all!

I wanted to introduce you to Sabrina Samples who is currently represented by Immoral Publishing. Here are the three books she has out. Check the bottom for her newest release.

Author Bio
Sabrina Samples was born and raised in Cleveland Ohio. Even at a young age she always loved writing. She would write poetry and short stories. It wasn’t until one of her teachers submitted a poem of hers to a poetry company that she realized she wanted to write more for people to see. From that point of inspiration, she has been constantly writing. Sabrina finds motivation and desire to write in the need to leave something behind for those who come after her time. When Sabrina is not busy working on her writing she enjoys playing Dungeons & Dragons, spending time with her husband and daughter.

Blurb for Pieces of my Soul... Love was fleeting... Just a whim... I had lots of fun... I cried tears... Some of joy... Others of sorrow... Then he came into my life... All was erased... I know now that I have found the one to piece back together my once broken soul.

The blurb for Shattered... She thought suicide was the only way out. She struggled with every breath, every smile and every word she spoke. Nothing seemed to fix the overwhelming need to take the blade to her skin. Let yourself be transported into the author’s shoes. Feel the pain and struggles as she does. Rejoice and celebrate as she overcomes those struggles and hardships.

The blurb for Wicked Souls... Spencer Bishop’s past was nothing more than a falsified case of fake memories. Every birthday, holiday, and special moment was changed in order to protect her from evil. Aiden, the lover who was erased with her other memories, came back into her life and caused her to question reality and figure out who she was. After an act of bravery, Spencer was granted her memories back. Aiden, her true love and the Angel’s in Heaven desired for her to see her true destiny and fight evil. Can Spencer defeat the evil before it destroys her and Heaven?

Coming Soon

Hidden Secrets (Book two of the Wicked Souls Saga) Recent actions caused all to be wary of everyone else’s loyalty and trust, including Spencer’s. Once believed to be a close knit group is now feared to contain a spy. With an edginess surrounding her new family in Heaven along with a collision course with her former family now living in Hell destined to happen. Will Spencer become Heaven’s victorious General or known as the killer of all angels when she takes the mantle in Hell?

Wish You Were Here (Part of the Fragmented Tears Poetry Collection) I have spent so many years whispering words to the Heavens. To my father who was taken too soon. I have spent every day since his death wishing he could hear my words to him. This book holds all the words never spoken and all the memories he never got to be part of. All my words, my tears, and my memories are being sent up to Heaven one final time for him to hear.


Please thank Sabrina for joining us today! Check out her books and links!

Keep Writing!

Fae Books & Fifty Shades of Truth

Hi all! presents...

a dark journey into the Light
By Josef

Genre: Adult/Erotic
Age range: 18years +
Approx. Length: 174 pages.
Publication Date: June 7, 2015.
Publisher: Fontaine Publishing Group.

Book Description:

This is a wonderfully entertaining, sometimes humorous, sometimes shocking, sometimes challenging, but always entertaining account of this man’s life. Many other men can only fantasize about what he has experienced. Could the variety and extent of his sexual world really belong to one man? How did he keep this side of his life secret? What trigger­points in his life can explain his behaviour?


There was a leather armchair in the corner across from me, and next to it some kind of apparatus against the wall.  I wasn’t sure what it was but it looked like something you could use to restrain someone.  It might be my first time here, but I knew where I was and had some idea of what went on.  Or at least, I thought I did.  It was like a large “X” shape and had small metal eye hooks attached at various points. It had a foreboding look, but at the same time I was excited and intrigued looking at it.  I would later learn that it’s called a St Andrews Cross, and I would come to love the view from it, with my arms and legs spread, and my naked body shackled against it.  But that would all come later, as I dived headlong into the exciting world of BDSM.  For now I felt like a country rube that had been dropped into the middle of Times Square. 

There were other various loose items around the room, on shelves and hanging from the walls.  There were masks, whips and dildos.  Lots of leather.  I smiled to myself through my inebriated haze, ‘lots of leather, what did I expect?’ Even without visiting a dungeon, everyone who thinks about it has the stereotypical images of a mistress.  Tall, dressed in tight leather outfits, long leather boots, and the mandatory leather whip.  But in the end, mistresses come in all shapes and sizes and dress in all kinds of ways, although always sexily.  They are such delicious creatures.

After a while I heard footsteps approach the door.  It opened quietly and the receptionist came into the room with my drink.
“Here you are,” she said, handing me the glass.  “The mistresses won’t be long now.  Make yourself comfortable.”
I thanked her as she left the room, and drank my scotch, syphoning it through the ice she had put in the glass and drained it in a gulp.  I remember thinking it was way too much ice, and made a mental note to pass on the coke next time.  I placed the glass on the table and stood up, wondering where I’d be most comfortable, and whether I should be sitting or standing when the mistresses came in.  I decided to sit, and went to the other side of the room and sat in the armchair, next to the St Andrews cross.  The armchair was facing the door directly, and diagonally opposite.  I sat and waited.  My mind was numb with anticipation……and what the fuck was taking so long!   It was like time had gone into slow motion.  I couldn’t think anymore, wondering what was going to happen, and what it would be like, so I tried to sit quietly, and waited.

More footsteps; finally!
This time when the door opened I got my first look at a Mistress.

Featured Review

Subtitled “a dark journey into the Light”, “50 Shades of Truth” is the story of one man’s journey through and out of the world of BDSM. Josef takes the reader through the incidents in his childhood that he feels precipitated his interest in the world of bondage and discipline and uses encounters from his 60 year journey to explain his path and the mental and emotional consequences that he is still working through.

Josef describes for the reader the life of lies and deceit that he was forced to live because of his participation in bondage. He details his encounters with transvestites, mistresses and gay men, and takes you through his thought processes during these encounters and afterward. The depth of his guilt and shame over these encounters is evident but also evident is the complete control that his urges for this type of behavior exhibited over him.

The writing in this book is top-notch. The writer’s style is clear and approachable and made the book easy to read. This book would, however, not be suitable for younger readers due to the language and the explicit descriptions of sexual scenes. Josef’s urges, as described here, feel like an addiction and as with most addictions he makes many attempts to change before finally being able to succeed with the help of a therapist. The struggle the author felt as he watched his urges destroy two marriages and several other relationships is palpable.

Josef also goes into great detail about how he views the role of the Catholic Church, where he was raised, in developing his feelings of guilt and shame about the activities which gave him such pleasure. He also goes into his views on how society’s attitudes toward sex make life more difficult for people like him. Josef points out to us the humanity of those people who are involved in the sex industry and presents them to us as people just wanting to have a life they can enjoy. Josef does not push the reader to want to participate in this world but he does push for it to be accepted by non-participants as a valid choice for an individual.

The obvious readers of this book are people who also engage in the world of bondage and enjoy reading about it. But I think this book could also be a good choice for people who would like a greater understanding of something they are not already familiar with and also for those who enjoy stories about people who struggle but find their victory in the end. Josef exposes some very ugly truths in his book and he bares his soul to his readers. I believe there are some who will take courage from this story and be able to apply that to their own lives. I tip my hat to Josef for being willing to share his story with the world and allowing his readers to make up their own minds about whether they are willing to change their viewpoints after reading it.

Author Bio:

What is your name? Do you use a pen name (if so, why?)?
  • My name really is Brandi Kennedy – I’m proud of my writing, and I have no reason to write with anything other than my real name.

Tell me a bit about yourself:
  • Well, I’m 31, and I think my largest accomplishment to date is mothering my kids. I’ve got two daughters, and there’s nothing I take as seriously as my responsibility to them as their mom. After mothering duties, my life revolves around building my career as a romance author, which has been my dream since I was a child. Other than that, I’m just mostly a regular girl. I love music, movies, and good TV. I love books of almost all kinds, crafting, and photography (I even took my own author photo!). I have BIG travel dreams, the sweetest dog on the planet, and a super varied personality – I can be introverted and shy, or totally outgoing, quiet or loud. Whichever me I’m being though, you can count on one thing: I’m unbelievably emotional, and I feel everything with complete passion. Maybe that’s why I write in the first place – to release “the feels.”

What type of genre do you write?
  • I don’t write just one, actually. I mostly write romance, and all of my books so far have an element of romance running through them in some way. My Kingsley Series is contemporary romance, and they are largely what you’d imagine a crossover NA/A Contemporary Romance series to be. The Selkie Trilogy is fantasy/romance, and the Freedom Series is women’s fiction/romance. My new short story, Courageous, is a romantic suspense, which may or may not eventually be extended into a series as well.

What genre to you personally read?
  • Mostly, I read romance. But I also enjoy fantasy, dystopian, mysteries and thrillers. I like comedies, too, and I really like sagas and long series’ because I get attached to the characters. Sometimes, I even like non-fiction – I’ll read biographies, memoirs, comedy, whatever strikes me in the moment.

Tell me about your latest?
  • Courageous is a short romantic suspense that I wrote for the East Tennessee Creative Writer’s Alliance short story contest in April 2015 – it’s my very first contest entry, and also my first win! The story is about an actress named Allie Jensen, whose security guard is being temporarily replaced due to illness. But when she opens the door to meet the new guard, she is in for a major surprise, and that’s only the beginning of the most hectic night of her life. The official blurb says: “When Allie Jensen opens her door to let the new bodyguard in, the last face she expects to see is that of her high school crush, the boy who broke her heart. She tries to play it off, but the past is heavy on her mind. So when danger intrudes on her quiet little haven, will Allie be COURAGEOUS enough to leave the past behind her?”

What sparked your passion for books and the art of a good story? Is there a particular book that changed or affected your life in a big way?
  • I’ve loved writing since I was a little girl – honestly, I’ve been writing for so long, I can’t remember a moment when I just became a writer. I always felt like I was just born with writing planted somewhere in my soul. It’s my “thing,” I guess. But I do remember one moment when I decided I wanted to be an author, and I remember the moment so vividly, if I close my eyes, I can still feel the embossed print on the front of my first drugstore paperback romance. It was Love Only Once by Johanna Lindsey; it had a yellow cover with print that stood up from the paper, and the story inside was unlike anything I had ever experienced at that time. I’ve read it probably a dozen times, and I’ve been in love with romance ever since the first. I’m not sure I’d have chosen writing as a career option if not for that pivotal moment.

Is there a message in your book that you want readers to grasp?
  • Most of my books have an undercurrent of personal strength. It’s so important for people to nurture a sense of confidence and self-respect. I think there’s a wealth of books out there, especially in the romance genre, that focus on co-dependency and so many different aspects of unhealthy or abusive relationships – I want my books to be different. They have real-life characters, but they are also strong people that I hope will inspire the people who read them.

What has been your best moment as a writer?
  • 1.) Holding my first book in my hands for the first time in print. I cried.
  • 2.) Reaching a best seller list for the first time on Amazon. I cried.
  • 3.) Talking to Marie Force one day about writing and publishing. For her, it was probably just a regular thing, but for me, that was huge. I’m sure you can imagine how I reacted to having “met” her …

Who is your author idol?
  • Diana Gabaldon, no contest.

Do you see yourself in any of your characters?
  • Sure. I think there’s a little of me in all of them. But there’s a little of a lot of other people, too. I think that’s the nature of writing. Art imitates life, or so they say.

Do you feel like your dream has come true or is there much more to do?
  • Well, I’ve come a long way, and I have a career that I’m proud of. But am I finished? No. Not by a long shot. I like to think I’ll be doing this for the rest of my life – it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do, and I still have so many goals to reach.

What does your workspace look like?
  • That depends on when and where I’m working. If I’m at home, I’m usually in the living room with my laptop. If I’m in my room at night and trying to be quiet because my girls are sleeping, or if I’ve run away from home to write in peace, then I’m handwriting on my tablet. If I’m on the go and for some reason my tablet isn’t charged, then I’ll even write on my phone. In an emergency, I’ll have pen and paper handy – really all that matters to me is that it’s quiet and I can think. The medium and the actual setting don’t really matter as much.

Have you ever had a day when you just wanted to quit?
  • Yes, but not because of reviews or word counts or any of the things that are hard about being a writer. For me, it was a challenge to go from being a stay at home mom to a work at home mom. It’s hard to find the right balance when your work and your home are in the same place, and one is always intruding on the other. When I realized that my kids were deliberately sabotaging my writing time because they wanted their mommy back, I almost just gave it up right then. But no, this is my dream. I’m just working on balancing work-a-holic and mom-a-holic, learning that I can do both.

What do you do when you’re not writing?
  • Mom duties. Cook, clean, play, teach, drive to appointments and play dates and school. When I’m not being mom or writer, then I read. I listen to music almost every minute that I’m awake, I surf the web, I watch TV. I’m a very serious WWE fanatic. You know, the usual.

What are the most important attributes to remaining sane as a writer?
  • Balance, for sure. You need to be able to balance writing and living, and balance being in the real world with being in the worlds you create. And having a thick skin is valuable, too. You need to be really secure in yourself and your writing, otherwise you can’t maintain your own voice. And while you need to keep reader feedback in mind, you can be made or broken by one person’s opinion – but that isn’t always easy to remember.

Did you have a moment when you realized you were meant to be a writer?
  • Not  really. I’ve been doing it off and on all my life … I was writing stories by hand as a kid, and then I was still writing when I had an old-school DOS computer, back when floppy disks were actually floppy. It’s more high-tech now, sure … but writing is writing. I think I need to write almost as much as I need to breathe.

What advice would you give to aspiring authors?
  • 1.) If you don’t love it enough to be willing to work at being good at it, then don’t do it. Sometimes you have to work to develop a talent, no matter how present it is. If you don’t care enough to make the effort, don’t waste other peoples’ time and money.
  • 2.) If you do care enough to work at it and be serious, then be serious. Work on your writing. Polish it. Proof it. Edit it. Edit it again. And again. After that, let some other people read it. See if they like it. If they do (and it’s not just because your mom thinks you’re the next best thing), then get a serious editor. Have them go over your work and re-check all of your editing, lots of times. You don’t have to be perfect, but please, be serious. Don’t crowd the waters if you don’t actually want to swim.

After this book, what is next?
  • More books, of course.

Your website/blog?
  • I try to post at least once a week on my blog site, which is also where I keep pages of all my book information. Buy links are there, blurbs, cover images, my official bio. And I talk about everything there, from writing to reading, to what’s been going on in my life. It’s a great place to get to know me, both as a writer, and as a person.

Other websites?

Where can your book be found?
  • Purchase links can be found on my website, where I have links to all of my books and all their available markets. But if you like things simple, just head on over to You can find all six of my books there, in e-book and paperback formats.
  • Thanks so much for having me! It was great to be featured here today, and I hope to see you again on social media!

Please thank Brandi for joining us today! Please check out her books and her links! Thanks Brandi!

In the meantime, I'm still promoting my newest book, A Society Intoxicated with Vampires!

It's a mix of non-fiction as well as some fiction. It's a sort of Vampire Handbook!

Why is our society intoxicated with vampires? Is it because the male vampire characters have been romanticized by movies and book covers? The vampire was actually a vial and foul creature, preying on the weak humans and animal race. This book covers the truths, myths, my take and fun surrounding the vampire. Be prepared to learn something you never knew about the vampire and take a trip down memory lane within this book. I hope you enjoy it!

Everyone who leaves a comment there and their fb username, will receive an ecopy of the above book but giveaway ends 8/25.

Thanks all!

Author Lindsey Jayne & Conquering the Witch: Book 2 of the Faction series

Hi all!

I want you to help me give a warm welcome to a great new friend, Lindsey Jayne today on my blog.

Her new book, Conquering the Witch was just released today! You don't want to miss these 2 books and there's the final installment being worked on as we speak. Oh, I can't wait!!
Here's the information about book 2!

Synopsis/blurb for Book 2 - Conquering the Witch

How do you take control of your present, when the past threatens to destroy you?

Four weeks have gone by since Elora Lincoln’s kidnap. Four weeks since evil witch, Cassandra tried to murder her and sacrifice her unborn child in the name of her deadly beliefs.
Elora is fighting on, determined to be able to protect the ones she loves from her enemies, getting to grips with the magic gifted to her from a long line of Superior white witches, and learning to cope with what happened to her and her daughter.
Not to mention her ex-boyfriend, Daniel’s bloody attack on DCI Amelia Ellis.
Nightmares of the brutal assault plague her, but not only that, something from her past is trying to warn her – but warn her of what? She struggles to understand.

Cassandra is still on the loose, and Faction General, Lucas and his team must align with another group to track her down before she succeeds in one of her ungodly schemes.
And then the unthinkable happens.
Cassandra kidnaps Elora again and, this time, she is taking no chances. The white witch has something she wants, and it isn’t just her baby.
As Elora lives through indescribable acts of torment orchestrated by the two people intent on bringing on her complete destruction, the Faction’s Second-in-Command, Deacon must battle unspeakable powers to save her once again.
But it’s not that easy.
Another force battles against them all, and it’s a lot closer to home than they think.

Here's my review for book 2:
This book was even better than the first one! The story carried over seamlessly. The Author has a way of writing that just draws you in and makes you feel like the story is happening around you.
You have the synopsis above so I'll let you read that as I don't want to give anything away! The emotions in this book run very high. I found myself living and dying with every word. The connection the Author establishes between reader and characters is refreshing and hard to do but she does it very well. This book is also an A+++ and I can't wait to read the third and final (boohoo) book where hopefully everyone gets their comeuppances!

Synopsis/blurb for Book 1 - Invoking the Witch

A group of women have a dark and forbidding goal in mind.
They want to raise hell, and they’re murdering witches and sacrificing their unborn babies in the name of their deadly beliefs.

General Lucas Drake leads a unit of elite, vampire warriors known as the Faction, tasked with safeguarding the apprised human population against anything immorally supernatural. So when Lucas gets the call that pregnant women are being murdered in a manner suggesting witchcraft he enlists the help of paranormally-adept DCI Amelia Ellis and her team.
Together they discover a horror with frightening complications involving black magic, death and sacrifice, but to what end? How do they find who’s committing such brutal atrocities with no leads and time running out?

Pregnant Elora Lincoln is a young woman trapped in an abusive relationship. When the abuse turns violent, Elora leaves him, but not before her mentally malicious boyfriend tells her that they are coming for her, and she had better watch out. They will stop at nothing until they get what they want – by any means necessary.
In order to protect her from Daniel she is taken to the Compound – a secured building that houses the General and his team.

But how does Elora fit into all of this? Is she another pawn in this game? The answers lie in her ghostly past.
Beyond scared she seeks comfort in the arms of Deacon, The General’s second in command. He promises to protect her, but fails when she is kidnapped from right in front of him. After discovering what is in store for her, can Deacon save her in time before she becomes another victim in this dark game?

Here's my review for book 1:
Invoking the Witch was the perfect title for this book! I found myself in this story as one of the characters and could easily relate to the story. It was if the Author wrote it just for me which I not easy to do.
Pregnant women are disappearing and when they are found, their babies have been cut from their wombs. Spring into action Ameila, DCI, who has been assigned to solve these murders. The things she sees, battles she has to make it through along with the sexual tension between her and Blake are enough to make her crazy. Nothing in her past cases have prepared her for this case.
The Author, Lindsey Jayne’s writing is wonderful and relatable. She has a way of drawing the reader in, gripping you and pulling you through the book. I started reading the book and could barely function until I could read more. It’s a story that’s stuck with me and probably one of the best Paranormal stories I’ve read in a long time. She’s got a new book called Allegra’s Song, an erotic tale and I can’t wait to read it also. Hope she does more of The Faction Series, Invoking the Witch is just the beginning. She leaves it on a cliffhanger so if you like books that are all tidied up in the end, this one is not for you but it’ll convert you. I can’t wait to see what happens next in this series!!! A++++ book!!

Author Bio:

Lindsey lives in Derby, England with her partner, Simon and their Bedlington Terrier, Huxley

While she loves to read and write, she also likes to shop for expensive luxuries she likely doesn't need, with money she definitely does not have! In order to fund her addiction, she works full time as a Recruitment Consultant.

When she isn't indulging in a spot of retail therapy, she can be found glued to some form of computer playing one 'shoot 'em up' game or another! She also likes painting, photography, interior design and psychology.

She isn't a complete hermit, though. She also loves to spend time with her family, friends and loved ones doing any number of socially acceptable (most of the time) things.

She is a huge fan of paranormal, thrillers and erotic fiction. And if all three are combined, she is in heaven. Especially when it comes to Alpha males!!!
