Innocent Blood ecover2 400X600

 

Louann Carroll’s fascinating look at how one man deals with his paranormal gifts has a brand new cover. This novel is one of the best I’ve read this year. Carroll has treated having paranormal abilities in such a way you’d think you were reading about real people. The story is intriguing and the characters are believable. I highly recommend this powerful novel.

Innocent Blood

They call him the Pope on Dope.

Danny Fisk has a secret no one outside his family would believe.

Danny sees things others can’t: like ghosts and the future. In his teens, he used drugs to escape his gifts, but with help from his family, Danny cleaned up his life. For fifteen years, he lived the American Dream. He had a loving wife, kids, a great job, and proud parents.

That ended when renewed pressure from his abilities drove him back to drug abuse. Now, Danny’s on a mission to save as many as he can from the streets that would destroy them all.

Pursued by corrupt cops, drug cartels and his own inner demons, Danny must find a way to survive his gifts. If not, he’ll continue a downward spiral that could cost him the lives of those he’s trying to save.

As well as his own.

Recommended 16+ for launguage.

Idyllic Avenue

Stranded on a planet with two dying suns, humanity faces extinction.

Stanford Samuels hopes to be inside the massive bio-dome that will offer protection from the permanent night. But the dome is for the genetically perfect, and Stanford, like many others, is a mutant.

In an effort to increase the Perfect population, mutants are paired with Perfects capable of eradicating the defective genes and producing flawless children.

But when androids are designed to produce Perfect human offspring, the need for the mutants dwindles. And their chances of making it into the dome are greatly reduced.

As unending night approaches, a terrorist group of mutants wages war against the Perfects for their right to survive.

With his own life in the balance, Stanford is caught between the two sides and must choose one or be left alone in the dark.

How do you make sense of a world in which right is wrong, evil is virtuous, and those you were taught were monsters are the ones truly worthy of saving?

Jennifer’s life was chaotic enough without having to leave home for college. Still reeling from her mother’s untimely death, Jen resists the overwhelming urge to cling to life as she remembers and continues to press onward as she knows her mother would want. But as she hugs her dad goodbye, she has no idea that she will soon be thrust into a world she once thought existed only deep within her childhood imagination. When an ill-timed Samaritan mission goes awry, Jen finds herself stumbling through an unfamiliar land of quaint, friendly dwarves, a monstrous wolf, and blood-thirsty deceit. Is everything here as black and white as it seems, or must she simply look deeper to find the hidden shades of red?

Born and raised in southern Alabama, Reese Reed is a former elementary school teacher and current educational writer. She was first bitten by the writer’s bug at the tender age of ten, when a teacher read her short story aloud to the class. While Reese enjoyed writing throughout her childhood and teenage years, it wasn’t until a life-changing moment (some might call it mid-life crisis) that she finally became serious about chasing her passion.  On a wing and a prayer she quit her teaching job and uprooted her family to move to a new home and new job that would allow her the time and freedom to pursue her dream of becoming a published novelist.

Reese has published one fictional novella in addition to Red. Claustrophobic, Reese’s Christmas themed novella, gives Mrs. Claus’s perspective on the story of Santa Claus.

In addition to her fiction writing, Reese taps her education background, writing curriculum and educational materials for major educational publishers such as Pearson and McGraw Hill. She is currently the Director of Education for WITS Games, an educational game developer.

Reese is a happily married mother of three rambunctious boys. When she does find herself with a moment to spare, she enjoys reading, journaling, and daydreaming.

When Angelle doesn’t burst into flames at sunrise, Jack joins her quest to save souls. The partnership is jeopardized when two of the Scorned Bride’s daughters enthrall him.

Josephine Templeton in her own words.

Josephine TempletonAs the youngest of nine children, I’ve learned a lot from my older siblings.  I’m still amazed at how different we are, but at the same time, how much alike.  I was the only child in the house by the time I reached high school.  So I had plenty of time to nurture my reading and writing skills.  My favorite author at the time was V.C. Andrews, and my first story was what is now known as fan fiction, with Indiana Jones as the main character.  In fact, one story I wrote had him switching planes in flight, and my mom pointed out that was impossible.  Who would have guess many years later that Harrison Ford would star in a movie in which he actually DID switch planes in flight (Air Force One, 1997)?!

I’m a member of HeartLa (the Baton Rouge chapter of Romance Writers of America) and have done freelance writing with Baton Rouge’s Town Favorites, Lafayette’s 008 Magazine, and Baton Rouge Parents Magazine.  I have three previously published novels under my wings (Convicted of Love – a historical romance, Forever Yours- a vampire romance, and A Pirate’s Kiss – a historical romance).

Journey of an American Son

In 1920 the chance to travel to India on a business trip is a great boon for a smart and talented young man.  Until he wakes up in a Calcutta jail, framed for murder.

Benjamin Albert is a brilliant rising star at his firm, a war hero and a loving husband and father.  But when his own government turns its back on him and leaves him to rot, his wife Catherine must take matters into her own hands and battle a ruthless and unscrupulous corporation abetted by a corrupt colonial government.

Timeless issues like racism, anti-Semitism, nationalism and women’s rights are exposed during Catherine’s race to save Benjamin. Spanning the globe in an era of great change, Journey of An American Son takes readers from the Jewish ghettos of 19th Century Eastern Europe through American immigrant-clogged streets, the trenches of war-torn France, the geisha halls of Japan and the grimy backstreets of Calcutta.

He must devise a plan to save both worlds while joining forces with the race of Fron and The Keepers, whom both harbor hidden secrets he must learn in order to gain power over the evil that dwells in The Other In Between.
