COVER REVEAL: The Crane Diaries: Homecoming by Apryl Baker


The Crane Diaries: Homecoming by USA Today Bestseller Apryl Baker
Cover Designer: Deranged Doctor Design
Release Date: Sept. 11th 

New Orleans is a city known for its paranormal history—and it’s the place Emma Rose Crane, AKA Mattie Hathaway, has come home to.

She hopes she can start over in New Orleans, where her ability to see ghosts isn't so freaky. She’s even starting college, but the whole thing would be a lot easier if she weren’t faced with a family she barely knows, all while dealing with the loss of someone she loved.

Can she really escape her past and be semi-normal? Even with her sister Mary and best friend Eric by her side, it's going to be a wild ride once she agrees to help Mary's new friends investigate a "haunted" house. 

The house’s new occupants are terrified, and the ghost seems to be attacking their little girl, leaving everyone desperate for answers. Emma isn’t sure what to think when she discovers Dr. Lawrence Olivet was also invited to investigate. 

Will her gifts be enough to save the family that is currently being stalked in their own home? And when some of her own family’s long-kept secrets come to light, will her fresh start be over before it even begins?

PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE NOW!


MEET APRYL BAKER: 
So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals, I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama you were seen kissing a particular boy on a particular day just a little too long. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled “Lord Margrave’s Deception.” I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.

Now, I live Huntersville, NC where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

BOSS UNDERCOVER by J.S. Badham: COVER REVEAL


BOSS UNDERCOVER by J.S. Badham releases August 28th!
Cover Designer: Derange Doctor Design

Zack is the total package. He’s young, intelligent, gorgeous, and he’s also the CEO of a very successful construction company. No wonder men despise him while women throw themselves at his feet. 

When a friend insists Zack wouldn’t know a hard day’s work if it hit him in the face, he has no choice but to prove his friend wrong. But what Zack didn’t count on was getting distracted by the brown-eyed beauty from sales and marketing. 

Claire is feisty, confident, and has the potential to become a huge complication. Yet he can’t stop wanting her in ways which are completely inappropriate since…well, he’s her boss. 

But she doesn’t know that. Not yet, anyway. 

So, for now, he’ll keep his teeny-tiny secret and be her boss…undercover.




ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Romance is just one thing J.S.Badham cannot get enough of! Whether it’s the typical cliché love-at-first-sight or I-hate-you-but-also-love-you compelling stories, they’re always close to her heart! Most will probably see it as trash literature but love is what makes the world go around! So, why not romance?

Her spark for writing began at the age of fifteen; a passion ignited thanks to her favourite author, Rachel Caine (Morganville Vampires) encouraging her that writing is the ability to be able to share inner stories and connect to the world.

J.S.Badham’s journey began on Wattpad, her path continues to grow, she continues to learn hoping that some day she’ll share a story that is inspiring.

COVER REVEAL: Delusions by Amy Crandall


Delusions by Amy Crandall releases Sept. 4th! 

Cover Designed by Deranged Doctor Design

BLURB

As she waits to give her statement in one of the interrogation rooms of Arcata Police Department, Abigale recites the same line over and over inside her head.

I did not kill anyone.

I did not kill anyone.

But there’s a trail of bodies, and it leads straight to her. The events that brought her to this very moment all point to one thing…her guilt. 

She must convince Detective Collins of her innocence, but how can she explain her ties to the victims, and the evidence that has her name written all over it? 

Then there’s the mysterious Facebook profile. DarkHeart434. 

Who is DarkHeart434? And why does it seem like this person has all the answers, including the identity of the real murderer?

As pieces of the puzzle start to come together, everything about Abigale’s life begins to unravel—her past, her present…and even her self-proclaimed innocence.

THE EXTRACTION LIST: Books 1-3 by Renee N. Meland

YA Dystopian Novels

THE EXTRACTION LIST: Book 1

In development for film by 5x5 Media!

An unforgettable, fast-paced science fiction adventure where a mother and daughter must rely on a gifted killer for survival...

In an America where parenting is regulated by the federal government, fifteen-year-old Riley Crane assumed she would never be taken from her home, and with good reason: her mother Claire had designed the criteria that parents must live by in order to keep their children.

But a simple knock at the door one evening proves her wrong.

Now on the run, Riley and Claire must rely on Cain Foley, a gifted killer who is as handsome as he is dangerous, to get them out of America alive. But when they discover what's really happening beneath the government's surface, they realize that escaping the country is only part of their problem. Together, they figure out that a killer can save a life, and a mother can damn a nation. 

If you're a fan of Unwind by Neal Shusterman, you will enjoy Renee N. Meland's page-turning tale of survival in a world where obeying the law is no longer an option.

BURNING DOORS: Book 2

The suspenseful science fiction adventure continues as we now follow Cain Foley back to the beginning, where the extraction list started...

Fifteen-year-old Cain Foley just faced a fatal choice…

Fight back against his abusive father, or die on the basement floor.

He chose life. 

Now a fugitive in an America that is stricken with poverty and violence, he finds himself being hunted by a police officer with his own special brand of torture. Before he can save even a handful of the children who have been swept up in the gang life, he must first cover up not one, but two murders. His father’s and one committed by a teenage madam who is either the love of his life or his final undoing. 

As he feels himself being pushed closer and closer to the edge, Cain realizes surviving his father was just the beginning.

If you're a fan of Scythe by Neal Shusterman, you will enjoy Renee N. Meland's violent tale of what happens when an abused teenager in a broken world is pushed to change everything.

LEAVE ME LOST: Book 3

Riley thought she could live a normal life after The Extraction List, but now in this third book in the fast-paced sci-fi adventure series, she must reconnect with Burning Doors’ hero, Cain, to save the people they love most from certain destruction.

Four years after escaping America, Riley Crane discovers the compound she calls home is facing a looming danger, and she’s in desperate need of a solution. The last person she expects to have the answer is the guy who has been the one piece missing from her life—Cain Foley.

With a broken heart and a switchblade knife, Riley follows Cain to Italy in order to rescue a missing child. If they find him, the child’s parents will give them enough cash to move everyone they love to a safe location where they can build a new life for the second time. But with their goal almost in sight, they discover their mission wasn’t what they thought, and much more than they expected hangs in the balance.

The question they must ask has no simple answer.

They want to save the people they love…
But are they willing to sell their souls to do it?

If you're a fan of the Unwind Dystology by Neal Shusterman, you will enjoy Renee N. Meland's fast-paced third installment of The Extraction List Series, where cruelty knows no bounds and characters are forced to test their humanity to save the ones they love...

COVER REVEAL + PRE-ORDER: Forever Your Touch by Apryl Baker


FOREVER YOUR TOUCH by Apryl Baker
A Manwhore Series #4 
Release Date: July 10, 2018
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Cover Designer: Deranged Doctor Design

Mason Kincaid is a player.

He learned from the best—his brothers. He knows he’s a good-looking bastard and isn’t afraid to use his baby face on the ladies. 

Life is sweet until he receives a call from his best friend begging Mason to look out for his baby sister, Josephine. A babysitting job is not on his list of things to do, but Keith is like a brother to him, and he can’t say no.

Then he meets Josephine and feels like a fifteen-year-old fanboy. Josephine isn’t just Keith’s little sister—she’s Mason’s favorite YouTuber, and Keith damn well knew it. The bastard probably laughed his ass off.

Celebrity crush or not, he takes his role as her fill-in big brother seriously, and he immediately understands Keith’s dislike of Jo’s self-centered boyfriend. The more time Mason spends with her, the harder it is not to beat the asshole black and blue. 

And the harder it is to guard his heart. 

Before long, the player is played. He falls in love with a woman who is not only taken, but seems to truly love her boyfriend.

But Mason is a Kincaid, and Kincaids don’t back down. He’s determined to change his manwhore ways and show Jo what it means to be treated right, cared for, and loved, even though she fights him with every breath. 

Can he convince her to listen to her heart before it’s too late—and they lose the one thing they’ll never find again?
