Pre-Order Blast for Fractured Glass


Fractured Glass is a YA Sci-Fi Novel Anthology unlike any other. 

It was written by 5 different authors who came together to give you 1 amazing story.

 Blurb - 

What if other worlds existed alongside your own? What if you could travel through them and truly escape reality?


Sloan and Harley Glass were born moments apart; but, despite their differences, the sixteen-year-old twins couldn’t be closer. They’ve held their tongues each and every time their mother has uprooted them—often moving across the country with little notice. They’ve learned to accept change. But what is Mom running from?


They discover they’re travelers—half-descendants of those who can traverse an entire universe of parallel worlds known as fractals. When the past catches up, Harley is kidnapped and taken to one of those distant worlds. Now, Sloan must garner her courage and find a way to rescue her sister. Traversing the worlds isn’t the hard part; it’s surviving the elements and the creatures lying in wait to destroy everything in their path.


Will the Glass sisters be able to save the fractal worlds from the kidnapper, or will everything fracture and crumble around them?

Special Christmas Interview with Author Meg Farrell

1. What is your favorite Christmas movie? Is there a reason/tradition behind your pick?

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Cousin Eddie is why I love this movie. He is just like the "Bubbas" we have in Mississippi. I think my favorite scene is when he is dumping the RV tank into the storm sewer in his all-too-short robe, and drinking a beer. Carry on, sir. Carry on.

2. If you could kiss anyone under the mistletoe, who would it be??? (Significant others not allowed!)

Forgive me, Husband. My answer is between two guys, Henry Cavill or Sam Heughan. Excuse me while I swoon.

3. What was the best, and worst, Christmas you ever had?

The best Christmas I ever had was the year my Mom got us "Pumpkin Patch Kids". Notice I didn't say Cabbage Patch Kids. We were dirt poor. My Dad was a truck driver and work was slow. Cabbage Patch Kids were the rage! Mom tried her best, but they were sold out everywhere. She found a suitable alternative and the three of us thought was has stumbled onto the next big thing!

I don't think I've ever had a bad Christmas. Even when we didn't get much, I loved being with my family.

4. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

I can answer that in 3 words: Lights, Lights, Lights. Go Griswold on it! Light up the neighborhood. I wish my husband was brave enough to hang lights on our house.

5. Which character that you've written loves Christmas the most? Worst? Why?

Cade Miles. Cade has had a rough upbrining from an absentee Mother, to a father that worked around the clock to provide. His gandparents ended up raising him. Irma, his grandmother, always made it a special time. Not about gifts, much like my own mother, but about family. Spending that time loving each other, and enjoying tons of great food. I can almost smell the macaroni in the oven.

Thanks, Meg!

Where to find Meg:

I'm from North Mississippi, US. I'm a busy wife and mother, but decided to follow my dream of writing a novel. I completed the first draft of A Place to Stand during NaNoWriMo 2013 fulfilling a lifelong dream of becoming a writer.

My motivation to finish the dream, by publishing my book, was found among the most amazing group of people at a small conference in Nashville, TN called UtopYA. It is a glorious place, aptly named. 

My husband, Jason, and I have 3 children, 2 old dogs, and 2 surly cats.

I am a huge fan of all things Supernatural (show and otherwise). I love fiction, young adult, dystopian, and erotic romance. I don't judge adults that read young adult. We just didn't have stories this good when we were growing up. I just enjoy a great story whether it is intended for my age or not. I look forward to writing YA to share with my daughter.

Christmas Interview with Me (Bethany Lopez) & Free book for my Bday!

To Celebrate my birthday, I'm Giving Away my Upper YA, 
Nissa: a contemporary fairy tale. 
It will be ‪#‎FREE‬ today only. 

Now, on to the Interview!!!

1. What is your favorite Christmas movie? Is there a reason/tradition behind your pick?

This is so hard, because I'm a big movie buff, and I LOVE so many holiday movies. Elf, The Santa Clause, Four Christmas's, Love Actually, The Family Stone, The Polar Express, and The Family Man, are just a few that I have to watch every year!

2. If you could kiss anyone under the mistletoe, who would it be??? (Significant others not allowed!)

Hmmmm… I came up with all of the hard questions, didn't I??? ;) This is another toughy, because there are a lot of kissable men out there. I'll have to go with Charlie Hunnam. Or, Michael Fassbender. Or, Henry Cavill. Or, Andrew Lincoln. 
I seem to have a thing for European Men! 

3. What was the best, and worst, Christmas you ever had?

One of the best Christmas's I ever had was a couple years ago. We were stationed in South Carolina, away from everyone, but my husband's family flew out from California to stay with us. His parents, two of his sisters and two brothers-in-law. I planned menu's for the entire time they were here, we went to the lake and stayed in cabins for two days, and we spent a lot of time playing games and hanging out. It was so much fun, and really made the holiday special.

My worst was probably last year. I was deployed and spent all of the holidays from Oct to Apr overseas. It was my first time not spending Christmas with my family and was really hard, which makes this year even more special!

4. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

I love the baking, cooking, giving of presents… Wrapping, watching Christmas movies, listening to Christmas music, and being together with as much family as possible.

5. Which character that you've written loves Christmas the most? Worst? Why?

I think my characters in the Friends & Lovers Trilogy really enjoy Christmas. Rich gave Roni a special present in Trust in Me, which was a turning point for them.

Special Christmas Interview with Author Rachel Harris

1. What is your favorite Christmas movie? Is there a reason/tradition behind your pick?

Oh, this is so hard! Christmas is my favorite holiday...well, it's tied with Thanksgiving, so this time of year just makes me giddy.

There are so many favorite movies from childhood, including a made for TV movie from the 80s my family watches every year (The Night They Saved Christmas), and romances that make my heart smile like The Holiday. But if I had to pick just one, I would have to say ELF. My husband and I actually saw it in the theater during our honeymoon and it is the movie we watch with our kids every year on Christmas Eve. So many great lines in that one :)

2. If you could kiss anyone under the mistletoe, who would it be??? (Significant others not allowed!)

Eek! Husbands don't count, huh? Well I guess I would have to go with my muse, Channing Tatum. He is so pretty...

3. What was the best, and worst, Christmas you ever had?

Best: The first one after I had my oldest. We were living in North Carolina and my daughter was born right after Thanksgiving, so everyone came up to visit us. Grandparents from both sides, aunts and uncles, cousins, all staying in one house. It was crazy and hectic....and fabulous. That's what Christmas is all about, right?

Honestly, I haven't had a worst. *knocks on wood*

4. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

EVERYTHING!! I love the songs, the decorations, the excuse to be a kid again. I love the tradition and showering your loved ones with gifts. I love taking pizza and cookies to our emergency room workers at the local hospital on Christmas Eve, thanking them for their service. I love going to church with my family, dressing up and then waking up to Jesus Birthday Cake. I love the eggnog and the treats.

I love Everything :)

5. Which character that you've written loves Christmas the most? Worst? Why?

I think it would have to be Angelle Prejean from Seven Day Fiance. Her Cajun Christmas traditions are just so fun, and we get to see some of those in the book....along with big bad Cane Robicheaux dressed as Papa Noel!!

Thanks, Rachel!

Special Christmas Interview with Author Amy Miles

1. What is your favorite Christmas movie? Is there a reason/tradition behind your pick?

Ok, so I'm one of those people who sucks at sentimentality or tradition. Seriously, it's bad. I don't have a favorite Christmas movie, or show or song or anything. I just love the whole season equally.

2. If you could kiss anyone under the mistletoe, who would it be??? (Significant others not allowed!)

My son. (See how I got around that??)

3. What was the best, and worst, Christmas you ever had?

The best Christmas I ever had was the first Christmas I met my husband. We were pen pals for 8 months before we finally met. He flew over from England to spend the holidays with me and for the first moment I saw him I knew he was the one!

Worst...every time he had to leave again. (Cue the AWWWs)

4. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

Hope. Baking. Christmas carols. Hot chia lattes. Buying gifts. Seeing my family come together. Christmas Cards. The smell of a live tree. The twinkle of excitement in my son's eye. Candlelight services at church. The smell of santa on the air.

Yup...all that bundle together is my favorite thing.

5. Which character that you've written loves Christmas the most? Worst? Why?

Hannah, from In Your Embrace, would celebrate Christmas the most. She's such a giving person that she would forgo celebrating to bring a meal to anyone who may be alone or in need. She'd give the scarf off her back if you were cold. Drive across state if your car broke down just to get you to your family. She's one of those characters that I wish I could be more like.

Lucien, from my Arotas/Immortal Rose series, would NEVER celebrate Christmas. Read the books. He's sort of anti-all things Godly related and for good reason.

Thanks, Amy!

Author Amy Miles has always been a bit of a dreamer.  Growing up as an only child, and a military brat to boot, she spent countless hours escaping into the pages of a book, only to spend the following days creating a new idea of how to twist up the story to make it unique.

Since becoming a mother, Amy has slowly nourished her love of the written word while snatching writing time in the midst of soiled diapers, tumbling over legos and peering around mounds of laundry and dishes that never seem to go away.  Once her only son started school, Amy was free to let her fingers dive into dark mythology, tales of betrayal and love, and explore human nature in its rawest form.  Her love of seeing the world from a different angle bloomed.

Amy is the author of several novels, including her popular young adult immortal books, The Arotas Series, which are an Amazon and iBooks bestselling series.  Unwilling to be defined by any one genre, she proceeded to flip over to a science fiction/fantasy based idea with her Rising Trilogy. She then dove into contemporary romance with her novel, Captivate and explored the depths of her own faith with In Your Embrace.

She is currently working on completing her Immortal Rose trilogy, a prequel to her Arotas novels.  She has also embarked on two new journeys this year, one in the form of a co-written banshee trilogy, The Hallowed Realms, which is currently represented by GH Literary and she breached another genre with her upcoming adult horror novel, Wither.

Special Christmas Interview with Author Melissa Foster

1. What is your favorite Christmas movie? Is there a reason/tradition behind your pick?

The only Christmas movie I watch is The Christmas Story. Wow, that sounds really lame, but it's funny and ridiculous and makes us laugh, so we always watch it. Our big holiday tradition is that we pick a series we haven't seen, buy all the DVDs and watch it over the break from work. It's about the only time I watch television and we get a little gluttonous :-)

2. If you could kiss anyone under the mistletoe, who would it be??? (Significant others not allowed!)

Any of my Bradens, Remingtons, or other heroes! >swoon<!!

3. What was the best, and worst, Christmas you ever had?

Oh gosh. That's really difficult to answer. I'm Jewish, so we didn't celebrate the holiday growing up. The worst was probably every one of those holidays when I longed to celebrate! 

The best Christmas? I can't choose one. Our kids are always around for the holiday (hubby is Catholic) so every Christmas is wonderful!

4. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

Hmm... Would it be bad to say when it hits midnight and I get to eat Santa's cookies? My kids are too old to believe in Santa, but I still celebrate with a little chocolate cookie!

5. Which character that you've written loves Christmas the most? Worst? Why?

I haven't written one that loves Christmas the most out of all of them yet. I guess you'll have to keep reading to find out...

Worst? Who could hate Christmas??? Nope. Haven't written one of those either!

Thanks, Melissa!

Special Christmas Interview with Author Regan Claire

1. What is your favorite Christmas movie? Is there a reason/tradition behind your pick?

Christmas Vacation is a movie I actually watch year round. My family usually puts it on during Thanksgiving preparation, and watches it a few more times throughout the season. Chevy Chase is just hysterical, and I think we all love it so much because the family dysfunction is reminiscent of our own behavior around the holidays.

2. If you could kiss anyone under the mistletoe, who would it be??? (Significant others not allowed!)

Well, if I could smooch anyone... I'd have to pick Matt Bomer from the show White Collar. I mean, great smile, bright blue eyes, and the kind of hair you just want to run your fingers through. I'm not sure if its the actor or the character he plays that I'd really want under that mistletoe, because there is just something about a suave con-man that wears nothing but expensive suits that is just delicious.

So, him... or any male actor from any CW show ever. Cough cough-Supernatural- cough.

3. What was the best, and worst, Christmas you ever had?

This is actually kind of hard. I've had more than one "best Christmas" but I suppose my favorite would be the one when my oldest was about 14mo, so it was the first one where she kind of knew what was happening. We had Christmas Eve dinner with my family, and she chased around her cousins while we all shared a perfect meal, and Christmas day she opened her ENORMOUS amount of presents (thanks to my Black Friday-shopping mother). It was hilarious to watch her open everything, since she was more fascinated by the opening-the-toys than the playing-with-the-toys. We made our first home videos, ate more great food, and just had the perfect holiday.

My worst? Well, it wasn't really terrible or anything, but it was the first (and only) Christmas that I spent with my fathers family. I was raised by my mom, but have a great relationship with my paternal grandparents despite not having any sort of relationship with my dad. When I was in high school, they invited my mother and I to spend Christmas with them. It was one of the strangest experiences of my life. Again, not bad, but I was surrounded by family I barely knew (including a half-sister), with traditions that were nothing like the ones I was raised with. Add to that the fact that my mothers family goes all out for christmas, and i had more presents than everyone else put together (including my toddler aged cousin), and I couldn't help but feel like I didn't really belong there. Oh, and I got violently sick just in time for the Christmas party they have every year. I made myself go, but I definitely felt like death warmed over.

4. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

I love everything. The music, the movies, the cookies... and of course the presents, haha. Actually, I love Christmas dinner. Sitting around a table full of great food and surrounded by family and close friends is the best. I was raised as an only child by a single parent, so it was mostly just the two of us. Any time that we got together with the rest of the family was amazing, and Christmas was always one of those times. It's especially great now, because everyone has grown up and has their own families. The holidays are the only times we are guaranteed to all get together, and I'm really excited to see all of our children play together!

5. Which character that you've written loves Christmas the most? Worst? Why?

Cash LOVES Christmas. Lots of food + presents? It's right up that boys alley.

I wouldn't say that Della hates Christmas, but she certainly doesn't love it. She's not overly sentimental, so while a lot of people in her position would dislike the day because it reminds them of everything they didn't have, she just doesn't care all that much. I'd say she would love Christmas if she ever gets to experience a REAL one, but she hasn't.

Thanks, Regan!

And be sure to check out her upcoming release, Tempering Earth, releasing on Nov. 25th.

A Tidewater girl born and bred, my first friend and love was the Atlantic. Growing up being told the legends about Pirates and American Natives common in coastal VA and NC, coupled with being an only child, did wonders for my imagination; I've had one foot in fantasy-land ever since, a trait my dear husband heroically endures (and one I secretly hope my daughters have inherited). We moved inland to Nashville when I was entering tweenhood and not a day goes by that I don't miss my childhood playmate and her crashing waves. Nashville has her perks though, namely the love of my life and our two sweet girls. Our insane mutt-dog and the stray cat that refuses to leave our porch aren't too bad either. I love fairy tales A LOT, teen movies (preferably with dancing or singing), read entirely too much, and am constantly late.
