Stephanie O’Hanlon announces the availability of her historical romance Affaire de Coeur & Out of My Grave now available through Eternal Press and other fine online retailers.

Affaire de Coeur

Paris, May 1770—in the midst of aristocracy—country girl, Madeleine Dumont is privileged to partake in social events while living with her friend Colette du Lorme, daughter of a Marquis. While following in the shadow of her popular and socially versed friend, she is caught up with her infatuation with a man—a Comte. Lucien de Laurent is one of King Louis XV’s favorites, established bachelor and social recluse. How does a woman win such a man without playing the game?

Here’s the background for Marcus’ book.

New Nations are rising to the level of Power of America in the next 20-40 years, according to world economic experts. In this new world, these powers will go to world centers of negotiation that have held world peace together since WWII, such as the IMF, G20, UN, World Bank, etc less in the future because they view these institutions as “unfair”. These new rising world powers (China, India, Russia, Brazil, India, and a south-east Asian collective known as ASEAN) will make “their own UNs” as they approach the power of America.

This is because the centers of world peace that have been used in the last century are seen as created and owned by America and Europe. Other risingRead More

Pre-recorded show due to timing and scheduling conflicts.

Tracy Guzeman’s new novel The Gravity of Birds was released in August last year and we had the pleasure to have a chat about all things writing, how to’s and birds. We asked her about combining a love of birds and love of books because it’s such an interesting idea.

Little Earthquakes

In Between Days

When the world was steady.

Prompt:

Make spine poetry of course. Find your favorite books and line them up. Did you discover a theme? Are there repeats? Can you manipulate the spines to make sense? Try for four or five poems of five books each.

BLOODMARK SYNOPSIS

Sixteen-year-old werewolf princess Ashling Boru is different from other wolves—she was able to shift to wolf form at birth. Rather than bringing pride to her family, it brings fear, and as a result, she is forced to live in seclusion in Ireland’s countryside. Ashling’s reputation is further blackened when she refuses her betrothed and defies the ancient laws. When her pack’s oldest rivals begin hunting her, she finds herself in the small town of York Harbor, Maine—far from everything she’s ever known.

In Maine, she crossesRead More
