January Black

Sixteen-year-old genius Matty Ducayn is the son of The Hill’s commandant. As such, he’s expected to conform to a strict, unspoken code of conduct. Small acts of defiance over years—such as walking on the grass—have earned him a reputation for being unruly. When sarcastic test answers finally get Matty expelled from school, King Hadrian offers him a diploma if he can answer a deceptively simple question, and then dismisses the only answer.

To prove his worth to society, Matty wrestles with the king’s word games, the kingdom’s historical record, and laws that don’t make sense. He meets Iris Locke, a street smart gardener, along the way. After enchanting him at a glance, Iris helps his research, keeps him out of trouble, and finally breaks his heart.

Alone again, Matty finds himself on collision course with a deadly law, one he will have to break to answer the king’s question. Was Hadrian challenging him, or teaching him a lesson? Without Iris, it won’t matter, because Matty won’t stand down for anyone else.

January Black is the 2013 Readers’ Favorite Silver Medal winner for YA-Coming of Age.

Tristan

Five years ago, Tristan Kendall left home and the woman he loved to prove himself on the sport bike racing circuit.  With his career briefly on hold, he’s come to realize everything – and everyone – he ever wanted was right at home all along.  Now he’s determined to win back her heart no matter the cost.

But Victoria Lane’s been through more than Tristan knows since he broke her heart.  No longer the girl he once knew, she has a life to live, and a heart to give, but only to someone who’s planning to stick around.  And she’s sure that isn’t him.  Can he convince her that she’s the only victory lane he wants to put his crotch rocket into?

Randi Everheart

Randi Everheart is an avid author of romance, due in part to being a diehard romantic.  After all, Randi once wrote a song for the object of a crush, and even penned a love letter longer than 50 pages! Sadly, neither was enough to win the heart in question, but now the same spirit flows out of a pen (well, a keyboard) and into these stories – hopefully to win your heart!

Randi has a Bachelors of Music in classical guitar, Magna cum Laude, but has always been more of a rocker, having released several albums under another name.  The original college major was composition, but it’s even harder to write that when you haven’t taken all the classes you need yet.  The switch in majors meant needing to pick up four years of classical guitar skill in the two remaining years of school.  Success in this led to a crippling case of tendonitis in both arms!

That pretty much killed music as a pursuit or a career – for a while.  In the meantime, Randi became a software developer and still ekes out a living that way, co-owning a software consulting firm.  Randi lives in the Maryland suburbs north of D.C., is married, and loves spending time with son Ryan when not writing, playing guitar or golf, or writing smut.

Sorrow’s Edge

Finding the truth can sometimes be harder than exorcising a demon…

Jimmy Holiday, defrocked priest- turned- exorcist, is trying to make sense of his life. With his on-again-off-again witchy girlfriend moving in, Lucy- the spirit from his last exorcism hanging around, and a secret organization of exorcists hounding him, Jimmy is feeling the stress.

When a stranger calls in the middle of the night asking for help with a possession, Jimmy is puzzled. Especially when the dude on the phone says he got his number from Jimmy’s old mentor. Too bad his mentor has been dead for several years.

After a mysterious silver flask arrives at his doorstep, Jimmy is left with two options: either ignore the phone call and the flask, or listen to Lucy and travel to Arizona to solve the mystery before all hell breaks loose- literally.

With Black Friday madness upon us, and thoughts of Christmas on many minds, I’ll start off Part 2 of my Holiday Songs with one of my all-time favorites by Trans-Siberian Orchestra – “Christmas Eve/ Sarajevo.” Creating an upbeat version of “Carol of the Bells” and “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” was a stroke of genius that has made this a holiday classic for me.

I love TSO’s music and many of my fave Christmas songs are on their albums. But there are so many holiday songs I love that narrowing down to twenty-seven is going to be tough. I hope you enjoy my list!
