Blurb:

The Lion Security series fires off with Obsidian Liquor, where resolve is tested and passion ignites…

Elizabeth Forter is a preacher’s daughter.
Daniil Kozar is the head of the Russian mafia.

Elizabeth is on a personal mission to destroy, and Key West is her destination – where a brutal competition is being held. Daniil is not a man to be trifled with, and the bitty she-devil’s antics don’t escape his notice . At the realization that she’s caught, Elizabeth’s curiosity rapidly turn to fear, but she can’t outrun a man who kills for a living.

Stuck in a situation of her own making, a deal is made with the mafia king.

Liquor and unwanted attraction never make for wise companions. The outcome is…dangerous.

Elizabeth was not prepared for Daniil. Each second of the day, her every action is watched. Elizabeth must decide how to handle the gun-toting criminal, and his seductive charm. Daniil may be the devil her father warned about…or the balance Elizabeth has been searching for.

Somewhere, Elizabeth’s dad is screaming a prayer…

Interview with Scarlett Dawn author of King Hall

So as soon as I finished King Hall by Scarlett Dawn, I knew that I wanted more! As such, I asked Scarlett if she would mind doing an interview for my blog and she graciously agreed!! Yay me! So here goes…

~R.H.Ali

Interview with SCARLETT DAWN, author of KING HALL

What inspired you to write King Hall?

Would you believe this is the first time someone has asked me this specific question? *chuckles* It is. Too bad my answer is so boring.

My inspiration came from another story I had started writing. I knew I was on the verge of something wonderful, but that story just wasn’t good enough.

Blank page.  I started over, twisting the characters, the story…BAM!

King Hall was written.

Is there any character who you actually do not like?

The Head Administrator, Mrs. Jonas.

Do you believe that the theme of acceptance of differences is a large one, plaguing our society today? And did this influence you to develop Lily’s hybrid nature to demonstrate such?

Yes. I hope that one day our society will learn to accept that what might not be comfortable for one person…doesn’t mean that it’s wrong – as long as it’s not detrimental. Only different. And our differences are what make this world so damn interesting when it would be so boring if we all lived inside the same box.

And yes to the second question, though it goes much deeper into the story than just Lily. The struggles of their lives…there is so much going on in this series…so much…that it’s hard to explain without blurting spoilers. But at the core, it’s all about acceptance, and most importantly…love.

This is a hint: Even if you’re a fast reader, take it slow. Really read each line.

How long did you take to write King Hall?

Less than a month. And it was a lot longer than the ‘now’ 112,000 word count that it is. Originally it was around 143,000 words.

When is the second installment of King Hall going to be released?

I’m currently in the line editing stage for the next book. After that, it’ll go to my two trusted beta readers. When they’re through with it, I’ll review their notes, and make any changes I deem necessary. My publisher will get it following that. If they accept it as is, then it’ll be anywhere from – approx. – three to six months. In other words, I’m hoping to have it published before March 2014.

What will be the name of the second book?

I’m okay giving this information out. Its current name is: King Cave.

How many books will be in this series?

Lily’s story is a trilogy.

I’m keeping it a secret though as to how many are in The Forever Evermore Novels.

What could we look forward to in the development of Lily and Ezra’s relationship? Will they ever be a couple?

*slow blink* What about Jack?

My lips are sealed.

 

Without giving too much spoilers, will we be seeing more deaths in the future?

This – really – saddens me, but yes.

Does it bother you when you have to kill off your characters?

Of course. I’m one of those wacky writers who bawl like a baby when writing a death scene. If I’m not feeling it, writing/expressing the emotions properly of heartache and that gut retching sensation which can sit in the bottom of your stomach-make-you-want-to-hurl feeling, then I don’t believe the reader will feel it either. I want the reader to experience it just as much as the characters are.

How can one of your fans attain a signed copy of one of your books?

King Hall is being released digitally, so there will be no signed paperbacks. But I do plan to purchase some swag once King Hall is fully released in case anyone wants a signed bookmark and such. They only need to contact me via Twitter or Facebook after I send a public message that I have the product available (limited amount, I’m sure).

What other books have you published?

King Hall is my first published novel. I’m very proud. I still have that glow about me.

What words of advice or inspiration would you give to aspiring authors out there waiting to be published?

Easy. Blunt.

If it’s something you truly want…don’t quit. Really. It’s that simple. Keep your chin up, build more thick skin, and move forward.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

First, I would like to thank you for having me here. It’s a lovely place to be! Woot!

Second, to anyone pre-ordering King Hall… *bear hugs*. Thank you!

Third, I truly hope everyone enjoys the world I’ve built inside King Hall’s pages.

My final thoughts with a tiny secretive smile gracing my features, is this:

There are love stories…and then there’s The Forever Evermore Novels.

KING HALL BLURB:

SD

A fresh, meaty, sink-your-teeth-in-and-hold-on-tight new adult fantasy series kicks off with King Hall…

King Hall — where the Mysticals go to learn their craft, get their degrees, and transition into adulthood. And where four new Rulers will rise and meet their destinies.

Lily Ruckler is adept at one thing:  survival.  Born a Mystical hybrid, her mere existence is forbidden, but her nightmare is only about to start. Fluke, happenstance, and a deep personal loss finds Lily deeply entrenched with those who would destroy her simply for existing — The Mystical Kings.  Being named future Queen of the Shifters shoves Lily into the spotlight, making her one of the most visible Mysticals in the world. But with risk comes a certain solace — her burgeoning friendships with the other three Prodigies: a wicked Vampire, a wild-child Mage, and a playboy Elemental. Backed by their faith and trust, Lily begins to relax into her new life.

Then chaos erupts as the fragile peace between Commoners and Mysticals is broken, and suddenly Lily realises the greatest threat was never from within, and her fear takes on a new name: the Revolution.

MORE ABOUT SARLETT DAWN:

Interview

Scarlett Dawn is drawn to all things quirky and off-beat. She believes there are no boundaries for an imaginative soul. Her love of the written word started from at an early age, when her grandmother would take her to bookstores every weekend. Dreams came alive within the books she found there, and now, she is thrilled to share her stories with others who have fallen under the spell of taking fantastical journeys. Scarlett resides in the Midwest with her husband, three children, and two dogs.

Other books: King Hall, A Forever Evermore Novel, is my debut book.

Summer of Frost- Leslie Dover

Blurb:

 

The Land of the Fae is strong with all four courts banded as one, but yet, uncertainty still remains as they all work together to end the dark sorcerer’s evil reign. Sorcha, the one and only Winter Court princess, has a secret, a secret that she has enjoyed keeping for the past six months, but when a much awaited announcement brings her to the Spring Court, and face to face with the man in her dreams, will she be strong enough to keep up the façade of her icy exterior, or will she melt into his arms like she does in her dreams?

After formally meeting Sorcha at the Winter Ball, Drake, Summer Court prince and army leader, knew there was a fiery passion underneath her winter skin, a passion he wanted desperately to ignite with his own, but with her frigid responses towards him he’s decided to keep his distance, except how can he when his dreams feel real. Seeing her again only ignites his interest, and this time he’s not going to let his arrogance or her frosty heart stand in his way.

Through unexpected tragedy, Sorcha discovers the one thing the dark sorcerer has spent his whole existence trying to protect, but what makes it more difficult is that only one of the Four is strong enough to retrieve it. The tides have now changed, and with Drake’s help, will Sorcha find what she’s searching for, or will the dark sorcerer beat them to it, shattering all hope of finding out the one thing that could save the Land of the Fae … how to destroy him.
