Sacred Light Spirit Eagle

3.8 stars on 37 reviews.

Near-death Biography.

Cristael Bengtson is a quiet woman, a dreamer. A mother, a grandmother, a teacher, a caretaker for her dying mother, she has lived a life of secrets and silences. For Cristael is a visionary and a near-death experiencer.

A lifelong visionary  -  Cristael was seventeen when she saw a vision of the great eye of God, looking down at her. It was an experience of total love. After this experience she continued to have visions. Then when she was in her twenties her husband threatened to have her committed to the State Mental Hospital in Las Vegas, New Mexico because of her visions.

Cristael realized that no one around her could understand her seeing angels and having conversations with Divine intelligence. Silenced, she went to college and graduated, then got her divorce and began her career as a music teacher and a classroom teacher. She withdrew from life to teach and to raise her children alone.

As the years went on, her children left home and her parents died, and Cristael was left totally alone. She struggled with breakdowns and with years of bleak depression, winding up being totally dependent on her older son. And still her visions kept coming to her.

Near-Death Experience  - Fifty years after her first visionary experience, Cristael had her Near-Death Experience. And after years of struggle and loneliness, she knew she could no longer allow herself to be silenced or censored. But how could she stand up to the risk of rejection by the people she cared about? And could she accept the fact that there were those who would ridicule her and seek to discredit her and her life of visions?

Are Cristael’s visions and her near-death experience delusions? Or are they glimpses of glorious realms where the human soul really does live for all of eternity?

Cathedral of Dreams

4.2 stars on 26 reviews.

Science Fiction.

Regular price $4.99. On sale for $0.99!

“Cathedral of Dreams” won the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Finalist Award.

In Newcity, everyone is content. Bad feelings are not allowed, because your monitoring chip will alert the police to bring you in for treatment. Getting better is mandatory. Unchecked emotions made the world outside Newcity dangerous, unruly, and violent. At least that’s the official story in Newcity.

Keith knows something is wrong. Strange visions lead him to become one of the few who escapes Newcity. He finds freedom and companionship outside, but pressure building to revolt against the city’s insidious regime of social control. Leadership is thrust upon him, with only his visions for guidance, only a small band of friends for support–and the fates of both Newcity and the outside world at stake.

Cathedral of Dreams is a compelling tale of a dystopian future and personal heroism.

A Real Piece of Work

4.6 stars on 178 reviews.

The Dakota Stevens Mysteries.

An Amazon Kindle Countdown Deal!

Regular price $4.99. On sale for $0.99!

A Real Piece of Work, the 1st novel in the Dakota Stevens Mystery Series, delves into a world of forged and stolen art, secret identities and murder.

At the close of a case in Key West, PI Dakota Stevens and his associate Svetlana Krüsh return to New York, where the city is in the grips of its worst blizzard since 1888. When an art dealer stumbles in from the storm and hires them to find a stolen painting, they think it’s just another case, but in no time they’re neck-deep in a world of unstable artists, seductive gallery owners, mysterious collectors, deadly henchmen and a stunning femme fatale.

In a thrill-ride of a mystery that leads from Manhattan to the Catskills to Washington, D.C., what begins as the simple recovery of a painting soon reveals an international art scam and a chilling secret hidden for decades.

Dakota Stevens is a former FBI agent with experience in the field and the lab, a modern PI who combines the wit and grit of Marlowe and Spenser with the sleuthing skills of Sherlock Holmes. However, Dakota’s “Watson” is anything but. A Ukrainian-American chess champion with runway legs, predator eyes, and fluency in seven languages, Svetlana Krüsh is much more than a sexy sidekick, bringing worldly sophistication and a razor-sharp mind to their cases.

A fast-paced and intelligent mystery in the noir tradition, A Real Piece of Work is a pristinely well-written page-turner for readers who like a great story told with literary style.

Author Interview #316: Olympia Heights: The Pantheon by Amy Leigh Strickland

September 17, 2014

Our interview is with Amy Leigh Strickland author of Olympia Heights: The Pantheon (4.4 stars, 31 reviews, $0.00 – FREE). A brief book description before the interview: They say that lightning never strikes the same place twice, but for Zach Jacobs, that just isn’t true. It’s hard enough being seventeen– juggling school, football, friends, and teenage romance– but Zach’s about to find out just how complicated it can get when he begins to suspect that maybe he was the lightning. Teenage woes hardly seem significant when you’ve got lightning shooting from your fingertips and a couple of murderous Titans trying to settle an ancient score.

Author Interview with Amy Leigh Strickland

1.   Give me the elevator pitch: what is your book about?

Olympia Heights: The Pantheon is the first book in the Olympia Heights series. It’s about a group of teenagers in Miami, Florida who find out that they are the Greek gods reborn into mortal bodies. They have to juggle their school work, their social lives, and attacks from vengeful titans all while figuring out who they are and why they’re here.

2.  What makes this series special to Young Adult readers?

When teens reach out to me to tell me what they liked the most about Olympia Heights, it tends to be their connections to the characters. It’s a large cast, and every character was inspired by the traits of their Theoi identity, making them a very diverse group of personalities. There are lots of different characters to relate to. Different people latch on to different characters.

On the surface this is a series about teenagers shooting lightning, talking to animals, seeing ghosts, lifting cars, etc. Beneath that are the universal YA themes: discovery, responsibility, and identity.

3.  Which of your characters do you most relate to? Read more »

New Book Releases for September

September 17, 2014

We are highlighting two exciting New Book Releases for September 2014 from our New Book Releases List (click to see all the new releases). If you are looking for something new to read this is a great place to start.


Urban Fantasy/Mystery.

Tavie has just died, but that isn’t the end of her existence. Instead, she ends up “living” in Deadsville, where the dead play games, look for entertainment, and wonder when they will move on.

Reapers walk the streets occasionally, taking “deadies” who are ready to move on.

All of that’s normal until two deadies are murdered in a way that the residents of Deadsville have never seen before. They need someone to figure it out before more bad stuff happens. They need Tavie, that is, Detective Tavie, as she was known in the living world. Tavie isn’t exactly happy about the promotion to Deadsville Sheriff. She sees gods of the dead, people who died in bizarre ways, and is presented with a mystery that requires unusual creativity to solve it. And that’s all before the dust settles from her arrival in the land of the dead.

Nothing in Deadsville is ever boring. Read more on Amazon.


Young Adult.

“Predator is a fast-paced, creepy page-turner! Bashman had me at the opening sentence and she’s still got me. I want more!”  —Nancy Holder, New York Times Bestselling Author, The Rules

“Every twist and fascinating revelation fell into place smoothly, with an ending that will leave readers wanting more. With this kind of originality on the page, it is exciting to speculate at the surprises Bashman will unveil next.”  —Suspense Magazine

The hunt is on! Sixteen-year-old Bree Sunderland must inject herself with an untested version of her father’s gene therapy to become a werewolf in order to stop a corrupt group of mercenaries from creating a team of unstoppable lycanthrope soldiers.

When Bree went with her scientist father to Ireland, she thought it would be a vacation to study bog bodies. She never expected to fall in love with a mysterious young Irishman and certainly never expected to become the kind of monster her father said only existed in nightmares.

Dr. Sunderland discovers that lycanthropy was not a supernatural curse but rather a genetic mutation. When they return home, her dad continues his research, but the military wants to turn that research into a bio weapons program and rogue soldiers want to steal the research to turn themselves into unstoppable killing machines. Bree’s boyfriend Liam surprises her with a visit to the United States, but there are darker surprises in store for both of them. Read more on Amazon.

Contemporary Romance. Sports Romance.

Regular price $3.99. On sale for $0.99!

A new contemporary romance series that’s a sexy, modern twist on Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Can he melt her frozen heart?

Hockey star Ben Kelly has retreated to his mountain cabin in the ski town of Cascade, BC, to recuperate from a season-ending knee injury and contemplate his future in the NHL. He never expects to run into the one woman who got away. Nine years may have passed, but nothing has dulled the explosive chemistry between them. Now he wants more than just one night.

Hailey Eriksson had Olympic-sized dreams until an accidental pregnancy from a one-night stand halted her ambitions. Her life was shattered when her son died. Nothing will keep her from fulfilling her promise to him to make the Olympic team, especially not the charming Ben Kelly. Unfortunately, he’s out to sweep her off her feet this time, and she finds him harder and harder to resist with each passionate kiss. But when he learns about the child he never knew, will their rekindled romance be on thin ice?

Warning: Contains two hockey stars with ice in their blood, a hero who is willing to battle his fears for a second chance, a heroine with a mean slap shot who lays it on the line in a bet, a small town full of busybodies, and a meatloaf that should be served with a four alarm warning. This story may also bring tears to your eyes (and not just because of Cindy’s cooking).

Please Save the Puppies

Save The PuppiesOur guest blogger is Suzanne Vince author of The Many Lives of June Crandall.

Please Save the Puppies

A few years ago, in order to quell the tedium of my 110-mile round-trip commute, I began listening to audio books. It quickly became an addiction. Though I write romance books, my supplier prefers murder mysteries, so that’s what I listened to. And hey, as expensive as audio books are, who am I to argue.

But then I listened to a book where the antagonist (bad guy) beat a poor, defenseless puppy to death. I stopped listening to the book immediately and got my own subscription to so I could listen to my own kind of books. Ones that do not involve the savage murder of innocent animals. I mean, seriously, who would want to listen to listen to such a book? More, what kind of person actually writes that kind of book?

And so I began listening to women’s fiction and romance novels, and listening to books on tape became safe again.

But recently, my friend and author Jansen Schmidt posted a blog entitled,Sometimes You Just Have to Kill ‘Em. In the post, Jansen talks about how upset her husband was when one of his favorite characters in a book he was reading was killed off. She argues that sometimes it’s necessary to kill off a character (for various reasons), and asks if any of us (writers) have ever killed off a character.

My reply? No, none of my characters have ever ticked me off enough. Read more »
