Rebekah Dodson
is a prolific word weaver of romance, fantasy, and science fiction
novels. Her works include the series Postcards from Paris, The
Surrogate, The Curse of Lanval series, several stand alone novels,
and her upcoming YA novel, Clock City. She has been writing her whole
life, with her first published work of historical fiction with 4H
Clubs of America at the age of 12, and poetry at the age of 16 with
the National Poetry Society. With an extensive academic background
including education, history, psychology and English, she currently
works as a college professor by day and a writer by night.


A. Nicky Hjort
is originally from Arlington, Texas- the second of five siblings, all
of whom have strong creative talents. She currently lives in coastal central California where she practices medicine as an Ob/GYN. In between being a lovingly devoted mother and delivering babies, she writes stories that cross multiple genre lines- from Sci Fi to high fantasy, but all of her stories have thriller and strong romantic components. And for her clever reader, all of her manuscripts are subtly connected to each other, with their purpose to explore all
facets of Love and Light. She likes to say that her stories write themselves, and in the process, often write her, or at least the next version of her hoping to emerge. A lover of all the arts, A. Nicky
Hjort hopes her stories might inspire you to find your inner creative genius.
As for her heroes- they are as varied and eclectic as her choice of
narrative genres, but when pushed to list her favorite influences,
she would say James Patterson, Barbara Kingsolver, Patricia Cornwell,
Dean Koonntz, Gene Roddenberry, Shel Silverstein, Suzanne Collins,
and Walt Disney.
Samantha Jacobey
Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.
I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything
is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.

I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently
available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.
Aubree Lane
is a true story teller. This award winning author has been writing in
one form or another for most of her life and has loved every moment.
Aubree lives in the beautiful foothills of Northern California with her husband, two wonderful sons, and a super special peek-a-poo named Tanner. When not managing the pooper-scooper, Aubree can be found at one of her favorite vacation spots ranging anywhere from Lake Tahoe to Maui.
Her motto: Write Until Your Butt Hurts, And Your Eyes Are
Crossed.
Aubree and her husband enjoy the harvest of their seasonal garden and relaxing in the paradise they created, called home.
Kristen Luciani
is a bestselling author and self-proclaimed momtrepreneur with a
penchant for stilettos, Silicon Valley, plunging necklines and
grapefruit martinis. As a deep-rooted romantic who prefers juicy
drama to fill the lives of anyone other than her, she tried her hand
at creating a world of enchantment, sensuality, and intrigue, finally
uncovering her true passion. No pun intended…


B.B.Raven
I am very stubborn and independent. I have a big heart and I love
children. One of the reasons why I chose to contribute to the Shades of Fear Anthology is because it was for a charity that would help children with cancer. I had a very unstable childhood; my father was an alcoholic and my mother abandoned me. Thank goodness for my grandparents. My grandfather, who is now 78, is still a big part of my life. My son and I help take care of him. We are simple southern folk who enjoy collard greens and fried chicken on Sundays.
L.A. Remenicky ~ Love Stories With A Twist
L.A. Remenicky is a wife and mother of two fur kids. A payroll
professional by day, she writes out the stories in her head by night.
An avid reader all her life, she finally put pen to paper (or fingers to
keyboard) during NaNoWriMo in 2012 and has never looked back. When she’s not typing away on her latest story with music playing in the background, she can usually be found spending time with her family and friends.
Desiree Scott
I have been writing since I was sixteen years old and love to write both horror and romantic suspense. I think there have been many influences within my life that has set me on the path that I can not help but walk. A few of those names consist of Karen Rose, Lisa Gardener, Nora Roberts, Cynthia Eden, Catherine Anderson, Laura Griffin, Andrea Kane, and Lisa Jackson, just to name a few. This list by no means defines by own writing but they have indeed influenced my
desire to live outside of my own world and to create the thrill of my dreams. I live on 40 + acres in the SHOW ME state with my six year old daughter, with the wonderful addition of four dogs and a handful of chickens. The weather is unpredictable, but the surrounding beauty of the country helps my creativity as I sit on my top deck with my laptop and coffee close by.
Taya Wood
Unexplored possibilities and impossibilities have always fascinated Taya Wood. As a child she would stargaze most nights, wondering about the universe and imagining how things used to be, are, and could be in the future, so writing speculative fiction was inevitable.
Having spent her former years as a graphic designer and life coach and then running a business assisting creative people to earn a living, Taya now writes magic realism and paranormal fantasy.
She lives in an eco house in a forest with her husband, several
kingfishers and kookaburras, a fishpond, some water dragons and a
very large goanna.

BOOK TOUR & GIVEAWAY: Religious Mystery Thrillers by Ken Fry

The Lazarus Succession
by Ken Fry
Genre: Historical Mystery Thriller
AMAZON UK TOP 10 RELIGIOUS MYSTERY
A modern-day suspense thriller with a medieval mystery.
A LEGEND TO SLAUGHTER FOR…
A TRUTH TO DIE FOR…
The Lazarus Succession takes readers to the ancient scene of
Christ’s greatest miracle, to medieval Spain, and back to modern-day
Europe. In typical Ken Fry style, nothing is as it seems and a
surprise awaits at every turn of the page.
According
to legend, Annas Zevi, an artist who witnessed the raising of
Lazarus, was told by Christ to paint what he saw. Over the centuries,
his completed works has vanished, along with every other painting
depicting Lazarus’ resurrection. They were rumoured to be sacred
icons
with miraculous powers.
International Art Recovery Experts, Broderick Ladro and Ulla Stuart, are
hired by a disgraced High Court judge, Sir Maxwell Throgmorton, to
locate a long lost medieval painting by Spanish artist Francisco
Cortez. Like Zevi, his work is said to be divinely inspired.
Throgmorton’s client, a wealthy Spanish Condesa, is terminally ill and
the icon is her last hope. She will pay and do whatever it takes to
find the missing work of Cortez.
Unbeknown to the Condesa, Throgmorton seeks to make a vast personal fortune
from the discovery of the paintings, and use it to reclaim his place
in society.
Ladro and Stuart learns of Throgmorton’s deceit and attempts to thwart his
plans. As they delve deeper into the mystery of the missing Cortez
painting, they discover a secret that changes their lives
forever.
Just as it changed the lives of everyone it touched across the centuries.
Praise for The Lazarus Succession
“…the supernatural elements, and their effect on the characters, are pure
genius. Even an old cynic like me was entranced. The addition of a
little historical flavour, in the shape of frequent glances into a
beautifully depicted medieval Spain, gives the novel context, and a
timeless magic I found addictive.This is polished fiction of the
highest calibre, and I’m more than happy to award 5 stars.”
Stuart Kenyon, author
“…this is an excellent novel with many twists and turns, the pacing is
perfection, the characters are wonderful and the ending couldn’t be
better. If you want a riveting tale that will hold you in thrall from
the first page to the last, then this is your book.”
Carol Marrs Phipps, author
“The Lazarus Succession has a great historical and religious foundation
combined with a dynamic plot, twists, and turns. Ken Fry knows how to
keep the reader’s attention and trigger their emotional response.”
Lilah E. Noir, author
The Patmos Enigma
by Ken Fry
Genre: Historical Mystery Thriller
With the success of his UK Top 10 bestselling religious mystery, The
Lazarus Succession, Ken Fry once again crafts
a cunning and
explosive historical thriller
unlike any you’ve read
before.


Tel Aviv, Israel. Archaeologist
Joshua Agar makes a stunning discovery when on one of his excavation
sites, they unearth an ancient ossuary, untouched
since the day it was buried. Evidence and analysis reveals that the
contents of the find appear to be the six of the Seven Seals
mentioned in the bible’s Book of Revelation.
The Seventh is missing.
Meanwhile, a mysterious man has
been walking the Earth for millennia. He waits…
amassing knowledge and power, seeking to bring about the one event
that would release him from his endless existence. With
the discovery in Tel Aviv, his waiting might soon be over.
Joshua Agar and his team, Professor Simon Rockwell and Dr. Rachel Carver
soon realises the significance of their find. An ancient society
known as The Keepers awakens, and they are after the Seven Seals. For
it has been told, that whosoever breaks the seven seals will
have unimaginable power and control
over the new world
promised through the Second Coming of Christ.
The frantic hunt for the Seventh Seal begins. Through dusty caves, ancient churches,
and even within the most secretive vault on earth, they search
for clues
to the possible resting place of the missing
seal.
The archaeologists are not alone. Another ancient secret
brotherhood called the Guardians have long protected the Seven Seals,
since the time John of Patmos entrusted to them the Seventh. Using
their resources, they attempt to discover the identity of The Grand
Keeper and impede his plans for global upheaval.
As scientists, the archaeologists perceive their discovery as a
historical relic and not a religious find. But with the
forces aroused by the unearthing of the artefact
, they start to
question if there is indeed truth in the story.
The Patmos Enigma will take you on a journey of wonders and thrills as it
hurtles from dark truths to enlightening revelations as
the war between science and mysticism commences.

“I can’t do it again. I can’t watch you walk away. I’m not strong enough. So when you tell me you’re not going back I need you to mean it because I won’t let go again.”
“Hello my child,” she said, stepping towards me. The voice was familiar, like something from a dream and it was distinctly different from the Loa’s. “You’ve grown up and become everything we ever hoped you would.”
“Be careful and remember, whatever you do, don’t be fooled by a pretty face and a few charming words. They all have that quick wit that will have you upside down and backwards before you can utter an objection.” She moved in and pressed a tender kiss to my temple and squeezed my arms much like a grandmother would. “Find Yansa. She’ll have the answers you seek,” the woman whispered into my ear low enough that only I could hear before pulling away.
“Well, as always, it’s been such a pleasure, Marie.” Samedi’s sarcasm wasn’t lost on either of us.
Erzulie-Marie stepped back to her starting location in front of the altar. “I’m sorry for all you’ve had to endure and for all of the suffering yet to come. I hope one day you will understand and grant me forgiveness, ma belle.” Her head fell back and Erzulie twitched a few times before the glowing raven exploded forth from her chest and disappeared into thin air.

 Excerpt

 

An arm snaked around my waist. My breath caught in my throat.

“It’s been too long since I’ve smelled your hair,” came the gruff voice over my shoulder.

I narrowed my eyes. “I didn’t know you had a hair fetish. That’s totally weird.”

Hot breath parted my locks like fingers. “You’ve got a knack for ruining romantic moments. Did anyone ever tell you that?”

I giggled. “Anyone ever tell you that telling a girl it’s been too long since you smelled her hair is weird?”

Roman spun me around. I pitched forward only to be caught by muscular arms as soon as made of iron as they were of flesh and blood.

“Hold on there. Don’t fall over.”

I straightened. Sea-green eyes met my poo-brown ones. Yes, they were poo brown.

Blond hair grazed the top of his shoulders. I wove my fingers through the ends, pretending to be getting out a bit of lint or something, but really I just wanted to touch his hair.

He wrapped me in a quick hug. “You do smell good.”

“I try.”

We parted and he smiled at me. A goopy look filled his gaze. I bit down on the lopsided grin I knew was stitched on my own face.

“So,” I said. “Fancy meeting you here.”

Roman pocketed his hands. “You come to weddings often?”

“All the time.”

“I bet you go to pick up men.”

I rocked back on one heel. “Am I that obvious?”

Roman leaned on one hip, studying me. He rubbed his chin. “You’re not that obvious. It’s more of a sense I get from you.”

I quirked a brow. “Oh?”

“You seem like the type who goes to weddings, picks one guy, dances with him all night. It’s just long enough for that guy to fall a little bit in love with you. Then you dump him.”

My jaw fell. “That’s horrible. Why would someone do that?”

Roman shook his head. “Ever heard of a black widow?”

I rolled my eyes. “You’re terrible. I’m not a black widow. If anything, you’re a dark assassin.”

It was time for Roman to do some major eye rolling. Which he did. Which didn’t surprise me. “Right. Listen, how about you agree that I’m right and we do some dancing?”

I folded my arms over my chest. “Is that the proper way to ask a lady to dance?”

In a flourish of testosterone, Roman dropped to one knee and extended his hand to me. “My lady, would you care to dance with this poor soul?”

I nearly busted my gut laughing. Tears blurred my vision as I said, “Yes.”

Roman guided me out past the chairs. The quartet strings thrummed as he twirled me into the space. Others quickly joined and the post wedding fun kicked into high gear.

I have to tell you, those of us who weren’t centaurs had to make a lot of room for them.

Laughter buzzed in the air as the romance of the wedding took hold of us. Roman and I fell into a smooth rhythm, my head on his shoulder, his arms wrapped around me protectively. There was no place else I would rather have been.

A crack of light splintered into the center of the dance floor. People screamed. Others leaped back. Roman pushed me behind him, shielding me with his body.

My heart hammered against my ribs. Heat rose in my chest, rippling up my neck. I peered over Roman’s shoulder.

A man stood in the center. He wore an ebony cape with lapels starched up to his eyebrows. His amber hair was slicked back and he had a deep widow’s peak that plunged down his forehead.

He clapped his hands. “Greetings, everyone!”

The air stilled. The looks of shock on people’s faces quickly changed to confusion.

The man’s gaze washed over the crowd. He studied the gathering as if analyzing us in bits and pieces. He clapped his hands again. “I’ve come with good tidings to the happy couple.”

From his seat at the wedding table, Pearbottom gave a stiff nod. Eliza clutched his hand, her knuckles stretched to white.

I was surprised that neither Pearbottom or Roman had moved on this guy. The small bit of analytical brain I had quickly realized they didn’t consider him to be a threat. That one notion made me relax a tiny bit, the muscles in my neck and shoulders unknotting.

The man flashed a brilliant smile. “This year’s Magical Abilities contest is open for submissions. The grand prize is a vial of Never Forget.” His eyes swept across us once more, landing on me. His piercing gaze made my stomach knot. Maybe it was the cape, but I felt kinda creeped out by him. 

The man raised his hands. “You may enter the contest,” he brought his watch to eye level and said, “starting now!”

A puff of gray smoke billowed up around him. The smoke took on lines, becoming sharper at the edges, more delineated until small circles broke off from the edges. These orbs of gas transformed into doves. Their wings fluttered as they rose high into the sky before disappearing.

A shimmering picture remained where the caped wizard had been standing. A halved roman column sat squat on the ground. Resting on it was a small, golden trophy. A halo shot out around it. After a few seconds the picture faded away, revealing a red banner with yellow script.

REGISTER NOW FOR THE MAGICAL ABILITIES CONTEST!

ALL ENTRANTS MUST BE RECEIVED WITHIN 24 HOURS

From all around me, the wedding crowd released a collective breath.

Roman turned. “You okay?”

I dragged my gaze from the banner. Energy still bubbled in my stomach from where the wizard had stared right through me.

“Hmm?” I said. I shook my head. “Yeah. I’m fine. Wow. That was totally weird. What was that all about?”

“I’ll tell you what it was about, toots.”

I glanced over and saw my paternal grandmother, Milly Jones, caning up to us. She’d dressed up for the occasion. Oh, she still wore black orthopedic shoes, beige support hose, a dark skirt and a shapeless cardigan. But this sweater had sequins!

“Milly, you’ve out done yourself,” I said.

A loud snort jutted from her gnarled hook nose. “I spare no expense when it comes to weddings. What can I say? I love seeing people get married. The only thing better than that is playing with babies,” she said flatly.

I really didn’t know if she was being serious or not. Milly loving babies? That was kind of like an alligator liking small deer.

Not that Milly was going to eat said children. She didn’t do that. Of course not. But she just didn’t strike me as the type to love playing with sweet, cooing babies.

I’d been known to be wrong before, though. It could happen again.

Milly eyed Roman like a pirate eyed treasure—with a glint. The only thing she was missing would have been a metal hand and maybe a gold tooth.

“Roman, it’s good to see you.”

“Good to see you, Milly.”

She studied the magical banner. People were milling about, taking their places once again on the dance floor.

“So I missed the announcement,” she said.

I pulled a tissue from my clutch purse and dabbed a splotch of sweat from my neck. “Where were you?”

“Bathroom.” She drifted toward the banner. “So it’s time again, huh? Time for the contest.”

I shrugged. “Looks like.”

Her neck snapped back to me. “You know you need to enter.”

I dropped the tissue. I shot her a panicked gaze. “Me? Why me? Why do I need to enter?”

She thumbed her nose. “All of you do. You and your sisters.”

“Why do we have to enter?”

Milly’s lips coiled into a serpentine smile. “So that you can win the Never Forget spell.”

I frowned. “Why would I need that?”

Her eyes dragged across the pavilion until they landed in my grandmother Hazel’s direction. “You need the spell,” she said slowly, “so that you can start remembering.”

Confusion fogged my brain. “Remembering what?”

Milly glanced back at me, her eyes stony cold as she said, “Everything your other grandmother makes you forget.”
