Genre- New Adult Dark Fantasy/Dystopian
font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; text-decoration: none; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Expected Publication Date- July 27th, 2015

The year 2102--the world as it was no longer exists. Ravaged by nuclear war and polluted almost to the point of no return, Earth was dying. When the faeries came and brought their healing magic, humanity was grateful at first. Centuries of damage repaired in just five years, and during the course of that rehabilitation, they invaded. Quietly overthrown, the human race is now enslaved. The majority doesn’t even realize they have no free will. Branded, herded and kept only to further the agendas of the Fae Courts, humanity could be facing extinction.

But a resistance is coming…

Fianna Dolan has spent her entire young life preparing herself for an uprising against the Fae. One scorching summer night Fi's parents leave and never return. Thrust into a position of power she never expected, Fi struggles with her new position and the responsibility it entails. When a secretive fae man known only as Flint breaches the city’s defenses claiming he can help, Fi begins to doubt everything she's ever considered truth. As betrayals and deception come to light, will Fi want the answers she’s been seeking, or will trusting Flint lead to her destruction?

Royal Partnerships Blog Tour


Today on my blog I have the Royal Partnerships blog tour. On my stop there is a spotlight and excerpt.

Title: Royal Partnerships
Author: Gracen Miller
Series: Road to Hell (Book 4)
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy/"Horromance" (because it's a mix of horror and romance)
Publisher: Self Published
Release Date: June 11 2015
Edition/Formats: eBook & Print
Blurb/Synopsis:
It’s good to be the Queen…
Having ascended the throne of Hell, Madison Wescott is finally able to breathe a sigh of relief. Though she has embraced her demonic nature, she has ensured the safety of everyone she loves. With both Micah and Nix at her side, she wields more power than she could have ever imagined.
But not even the throne is safe when you rule in Hell.
In the wake of a failed assassination attempt, Madison learns about a realm of the damned older than Hell itself. A fierce and powerful incubus vows to escape his imprisonment there — and his efforts are weakening the bonds that hold him and countless other monsters at bay. With no plan and nowhere else to turn, Madison contacts an unlikely source for help. But whose side is he really on? Will he help preserve her reign, or bring about Hell’s downfall?

Choose your partnerships carefully… 

Excerpt: 
 “Collecting and torturing a soul is dangerous business, my sister,” Zen said.
“So was becoming Queen of Hell. What’s problematic about going with the flow?”
More of the same unblinking stare from him. “If you go rogue, Madison…”
Madison slammed against the window-wall behind her. Despite the pane’s solidness, she felt it shimmy when it received the brunt of her weight. Recognizing Zen’s new demonstration of power, she elevated her eyebrows at him. With a smirk, she rubbed her back against the glass. She palmed her dragon blade as she flung a ninja star. He leaned to the side, dodging the star with ease. Of course she missed.
“You can’t kill me.”
Only his creator could take him down.
Madison palmed her other dagger and eased away from the window. “Is this you coming for me, Zen?”
His one-shoulder shrug sufficed as an answer. The pounding on the door, followed by Nix and Micah’s yelling further answered her question. Zen had magically locked them out. That’d been why she saw his power flare for a brief second during their conversation.
She went for him. He blocked each jab and slash. Every kick and punch. She eyed him as they circled one another.
He toys with us, her demon remarked.
Of course he does, that was Zen’s way when they sparred.
“Have I not taught you anything?” He smacked her across the cheek in a whip-like move she hadn’t seen coming. It wasn’t hard enough to hurt, but the blow stung all the same. “You tire yourself knowing I’m the superior fighter. It’s like you sacrifice yourself to me. Too easy.”
They went at it again. She tripped over a rug, stumbled backward, and came up dead-footed with her spine against the windowpanes. He moved into her space. Eye-to-eye they stared at one another, her panting the only racket in the room.
“So this is how it all ends?” she asked as he elevated a hand and braced it against the glass next to her head.
“Maybe...”
The door practically throbbed from all the kicking, pounding, and magic thrown at it. “You’re scaring my men.”
“They should be terrified.”
Madison settled her hand on his arm. “I trust you.”
She chugged his magic harder than she ever had anyone’s, and screamed as pain slashed through her head. Zen’s eyes widened, silver bright, and he jerked away as his magic held strong, barring her husbands from the room.
Zen stumbled, his footing off, and he swayed a moment before going to a knee. Wincing as the pain receded, Madison circled him and secured her blade in its leather holster.
She threaded her fingers in his hair and pulled his head back. His shallow breathing surprised her, “Concede defeat?”

Their ruthless queen Ashtaroth, guided only by ambition and her voracious thirst for carnal pleasures, masterminds their rising tide of evil.

But in a world where magic, warfare, and sinister prophecies rule the day... in the night, vile enemies may seek the warmth in each other's touch.

Darkness is bleeding its treachery into our world and Elysa and The Order of the Anakim must find a way to combat the gathering doom.

Dark Skies will sweep legions of fantasy fiction fans into Elysa Amalfi's thrilling and treacherous world of the supernatural.  

Excerpt: 
"Hey, sleeping beauty!" Jarron blurted to rouse Caleb out of a nap.
Caleb was comfortably leaned back in a chair and kept his eyes closed, greeting Jarron with a standing salute of his middle finger. "Why are you bothering me?" Caleb asked, still pretending disinterest.
"Sirius know you're sleeping on the job?" Jarron quipped.
"I wasn't sleeping. I was meditating," He smiled, recalling the dream that was so rudely interrupted. "Besides, there's nothing going on. It's been quiet." Caleb finally opened his eyes to look at Jarron. "What have you been up to?"
"Training," Jarron answered with a smile. "Where's Sirius?"
"Level 3 with Anya. Says he's got more research to do." Caleb stretched his arms over his head and let out a hearty yawn. "He should have been back by now. What do you have him working on?"
"He went scouting with Anya and found some things that have him spooked."
Caleb propped his feet on the table and quickly looked at the monitors to make sure things were still quiet.
"Before Baja, the demon attacks were getting more intense. A lot more Great Demons showing up. New demons we haven't encountered before."
Caleb shrugged. "We get attacked all the time. We suffer injuries. It's part of the calling."
"There's something different. It's in the air. I can feel it."
"So what's Sirius looking into?" Caleb didn't want to admit he felt the same way. That he was worried. That even though there was little to no activity, there was change happening in the city. He couldn't explain it, but the thoughts from the city that he often picked up on were different, veiled somehow, like his reception was being interrupted.
Jarron walked over to the conference table and opened a folder with stacks of surveillance pictures inside. He chose one from the stack, handing a 5 x 7 picture to Caleb. A red circle clearly marked a dark-haired man standing in the middle of a crowd, his gaze seeming to look off in the distance. It was Will.
Caleb dropped his feet from the table and sat up in his seat. He stared at the picture. He had given his word to Isabel that he would not reveal his knowledge about Will's presence. She had good reason to hold off, but if Jarron and Sirius were already tailing the guy, it would only be a matter of time before they figured out who he was.

Cocktails & Characters Post: 
Cocktails & Characters (for the main characters)
Choose 5 or 6 of your characters tell us what their favorite cocktail is and why.

Jarron loves to wind down with a tall glass of gin and tonic with lots of ice. He normally runs hot and he finds the tonic water cooling and soothing--especially with the lime. Plus, it's simple and easy to make.
Ellie loves Pina Coladas. They remind her of her mom. They were here mom's favorite and one of the last drinks they shared during one of their travels… before her mom disappeared
Isabel is classy and sophisticated and being the leader of The Order, she reserves her drinking during special occasions. For those few special moments, Isabel indulges with a champagne cocktail, made with her favorite champagne from France--Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame.
Sirius is The Order's genius tech guy. He's a warrior too, but no one can handle the Control Room like he can. That means, lots of late nights gathering data and watching surveillance.  He loves coffee and when he needs a little more punch, it's as simple as adding Kahlua to his coffee and blasting the speakers with some deep house music and he can work all night.
Will loves a good sipping tequila. He used to live in Mexico and he would walk to a nearby market after work to buy some.  It didn't need anything else, no salt, no lime, just plain and he would savor it. That was what the storekeeper had told him. "Savor it. Let it coat your tongue." They would each enjoy a glass before the storekeeper would send him on his way.
Ash (Ashtaroth) enjoys blood orange and cranberry juice with vodka. Being a demon the alcohol really doesn't do much (if anything) for her, but she loves the deep ruby jewel tone of the drink. It reminds her of the rare and priceless bloodstones that come from her realm.

Excerpt:


Writing sucks. Period.

That’s why I am an artist; illustrator and graphic designer who writes in a hobby basis. Oh, wait… That’s not the “why”… I was born artist, and there is nothing I can do to change it. But with all the imagination I have running lose, there came some stories… And there came some books!

When I’m not doing artwork and illustration for authors and bands, I’m doing woodcarving, painting ornaments, painting artworks for myself, writing articles for IT’S ART MAG, collaborating with other artists and so on. Love Arts, History and Heavy Metal.

Oh, and summer is a bitch! Always. Anywhere in the world.
