NEW RELEASE! SHATTERED ILLUSION: BOOK 0! 7 MAFIA BRIDES FOR 7 BROTHERS

If you loved the movie ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers’, you’ll love this take on the movie with our new limited series, 7 Mafia Brides for 7 Brothers! Book 0 of the series releases today and then for the next 8 weeks, on Friday, a new book drops! How exciting is that?

This book is really special to me as it is my first collaboration with my twin sister Lynnette Roman. We wrote this book together even as she is fighting her second bout with ovarian cancer.

We’re both hoping you’ll enjoy the story!


 

Shattered Illusion Final Cover.jpg

A dying mother’s last wish, a mafia king’s shattered facade, and the children whose lives will intertwine…

Refusing to die the way her father did, Janis Woodsman has only a few months left to live. Her choice has caused a rift in her marriage. A rift that fear widens and only the love of God can seal. Thaddeus, her husband, is not the only one upset about her unwillingness to fight, but her seven sons too. Alone in her choice she prays that the Lord will do what she seems to be unable to: make her family understand, or at the very least grant them all peace….and give her sons wives.

It should have been a simple party to bring the mafia lords and their political allies together, but Father Popov discovers his daughter, Olga, has seen the dark side of their beloved father. Not only her, but the other six Mafia kings’ daughters know too, one of them far too much. Before he and the other kings can do anything about it, his daughter and the other six princesses disappear without a trace. However, their footprints lead to the snows of Halden, Idaho, in the mountains.

But will they be safe there?

**REBROADCAST** — Tonight on the Write Stuff–2085: The Rise and Fall of the Sisters with Christopher Weeks

2085

Above the smoldering ashes of a demolished patriarchy stand The Sisters and their ruthless ironclad rule. This is a world where men are the weaker sex and those who fail to comply with The Sisters’ draconian laws are sent to labor in the factories as muted drones; drugged cogs in a heartless nation’s machine.

Celebrity Vlogger and Fashion Icon Beck Paris’ life is turned upside down when she unexpectedly meets a daring man who is more than willing to challenge the supremacy of The Sisters. Beck’s surprising interest in this man places both of them in the cross-hairs of the power-obsessed leader of the State, Dr. Simone Gladstone.

Can their love survive? Will women and the feminist struggle for control finally reign supreme? Beck will have to decide if gaining love is worth the risk of losing her life.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — If Wishes Were Curses with Janeen Ippolito

IppolitoPromo

So I accidentally killed a shifter. On purpose.

With genie powers I shouldn’t be able to use, thanks to my curse-mark. In my defense, the grizzly was threatening civilians and might have been a vampire as well. Pittsburgh is safer without him. Only the Fae court doesn’t believe my story, and the shifters are out for blood.

Now I’ve lost my job as a romantic investigator, and I’m on death row. My only hope is an oddly outgoing vegetarian vampire lawyer who seems strangely familiar. Too familiar. Almost like we’ve met before, and this whole thing was a set-up to take us both down.

Wishing won’t get us out of this mess.
But my forbidden wish magic just might.

Special Edition of the Write Stuff–Beatitudes and Woes Speculative Fiction Anthology

 

bawOne day, about several months ago, in a Facebook group not so far away, an author posted this:

… I think it would be cool if someone organized a speculative anthology where each story is based on one of the 9 Beatitudes in Matthew or one of the 4 woes of Luke. 13 authors, each assigned/choosing one of those verses, expressing it in fantastical story form…

That author, CW Briar, had created a firestorm.

Immediately, interest piqued. Christian authors and readers jumped on the bandwagon on this wonderful idea. Of course! Why hadn’t many of us thought of it before? General online excitement ensured as authors clamored for a chance to be one of the ones selected for this project. After all, most of us could recite them forwards and backwards.

But had we ever had a chance to explore them in a deeper context? What better way to do that than through the universal language of story?

Write Stuff Author Spotlight– King of Malorn by Annie Douglass Lima — **FREE EBOOK! LIMITED TIME**


Thanks for stopping by! Take a look at this brand-new fantasy adventure story with a hint of romance by author Annie Douglass Lima. 
You can download a copy of the ebook for free between July 9th and 11th!

Book Description:

    Life as
the king’s younger sister should be exciting.

   Not for
Princess Kalendria. She’s sick of the dissent and of constantly having her
family undermined by those who think they could rule Malorn better than King
Korram.
   Hoping to
lighten the mood in the palace, Kalendria plans a ball to celebrate her
seventeenth birthday. It doesn’t hurt that their handsome Alasian ally King
Jaymin has promised to attend, and she’s been waiting for him to notice her for
as long as she can remember.
   But
unfriendly forces have their own party plans. When Kalendria, Korram, and
Jaymin barely survive an assassination attempt, their only recourse is to flee
into the wilderness. Tracked by unknown assassins, they must figure out whom
they can trust and who is behind the plot. Can Kalendria help her brother
reclaim his throne – oh, and catch Jaymin’s attention while she’s at it –
before they are all killed and war destroys both kingdoms?

Series Information:



King of Malorn is book 5 in the Annals
of Alasia
. But don’t worry if you haven’t read the others; it will still make sense on its own. 



Each of the first four books can stand on its own as well. They each deal with events surrounding the same major political incident: the invasion
of the kingdom of Alasia by the neighboring kingdom of Malorn. 



Prince of Alasia begins on the night of the Invasion and
describes what happens to twelve-year-old Prince Jaymin after he is forced to
flee for his life. 

In
the Enemy’s Service

features a girl as the protagonist and tells the story of those who were not
able to escape from the Alasian palace when the enemy invaded. 

Prince of Malorn begins several months earlier and
focuses on the Malornian perspective of the events leading up to the
Invasion. 

The Nameless Soldier shows how a young Alasian soldier lives through the Invasion but then has to survive and make a name for himself in enemy-occupied Alasia. 



In each of the books, main
characters from the others make brief appearances and interact with each other
at the point where the timeframes and settings overlap. 



I also have a short
ebook of “interviews” that I conducted with the characters in the other three
books. Annals of Alasia: The Collected
Interviews
is not available on Amazon, but I send a free copy to anyone who
signs
up for my mailing list

(to receive updates when I release new books or occasionally offer them for free).



Author Biography:

Annie Douglass Lima considers herself
fortunate to have traveled in twenty different countries and lived in four of
them. A fifth-grade teacher in her “other” life, she loves reading to her
students and sparking their imaginations. Her books include science fiction,
fantasy, YA action and adventure novels, a puppet script, anthologies of her
students’ poetry, and Bible verse coloring and activity books. When she isn’t
teaching or writing, Annie can often be found sipping spiced chai or
pomegranate green tea in exotic locations, some of which exist in this world.
