Retribution Cover Reveal!

🔥🔥🔥 Surprise Cover Reveal! 🔥🔥🔥

 
It’s that time! Retribution releases next Tuesday, the 21st, and I’ve got the cover for ya! I’m so excited. This is book 6 of the Reluctant Warrior Chronicles, which means the series is almost complete! Read on to see how I’m gonna tear your heart out this time. 😉
 
***
 
A new power is rising. One that may threaten the team from within…
Liz and Ryland Vaughn’s life is finally peaceful. Sort of. With a toddler who’s a handful of rabid energy and already displaying extraordinary gifts, and Liz being six months pregnant and cranky, things are hardly calm. But the demons seem to have backed down for the moment. In fact, it’s been unusually quiet on the battle front.
Too quiet.
So when multiple new people enter their lives at once, they are understandably suspicious. Especially when they receive word that an old enemy has returned, and Lucifer has set his sights on not only them, but their children.
The threats against them are mounting by the day. Tensions are rising among the team as they fight to protect Liz and Connor, and discover who the new elite demon is that’s leading the charge for Lucifer.
But while they’re focused on the growing peril around them, the possibility of an even greater danger grows within the team. A danger that could tear their family apart.
Can they defeat their enemies without becoming the very thing they battle against?

Or will the rising threat in their own ranks destroy them all?

Book Thieves SUCK

Your Cheeky Wench

I just can’t call them pirates. Pirate, in my mind, conjures up an image of a tall, handsome devil with long hair and a swashbuckling personality sailing the seven seas.

We’re talking about thieves. Individuals or groups of individuals who openly steal copies of books and upload them to websites where anyone who is a member can read it. They like to claim they’re offering a service to the public. They like to claim what they’re doing is no more different than a public library.

You’re NOT a Library. You are a thief.

There are a few succinct differences between libraries and book thieves. Libraries, you see, actually payforbooks. Most libraries have a limited number of members. Yes, some libraries are bigger than others, but that isn’t the point here. The books were first purchased before they were loaned out to anyone.

The pirates will argue that someone originally…

Awakened has arrived!

The day has finally arrived.

Awakened, book 2 of the Rise of the Fianna is here!

awaketeaser2

 

Makenna and Rhys are back, and the stakes are higher than ever. Their world is about to go up in flames. Here’s a little taste of the story…

 

Sometimes, being queen royally sucks.
Makenna has embraced her true self and taken her rightful place as Alpha at Rhys’s side. But learning how to live as mates in the midst of a raging war proves more difficult than anything she’s faced. That is, until the goddess stretches fully awake, taking control and burning everyone in her path.
But that fiery power may come in handy to battle Kylian’s diabolical plans. Using dark magic that shouldn’t be possible, he’s torn a hole in the fabric of reality and put their kingdom in more danger than ever.
As Makenna fights the rising power within, her entire world crashes down around her. Secrets are revealed and hearts broken when an unlikely ally presents them with an impossible choice to end the war. When the truth comes to light, it will challenge everything they believe. Leaving them to face an agony they could never have imagined.
The bonds of family and pack are tested to their limits. Nothing is what it seems, and loyalty is strained to the breaking point. Can Rhys and Makenna hold on to each other and solidify their bond while reclaiming their throne? Or will the truth be more devastating than lies, tearing them apart forever? 

*This book contains hot wolf shifters, a fierce warrior goddess, and a hero and heroine who set the page on fire. Mature content suitable only for those 18 and up.*

 

You can grab your copy on Amazon,

Resilience is here!

Resilience 3D (1)

I cannot even explain how excited I am about this latest installment of TRWC!

Like all of TRWC, this one has been a labor of love. I think out of all of the books in this series, this was the toughest to write, but also my favorite. I put a lot of myself and my past into this series, laying my guts on the page with every word I write. Never has that been more true than in Resilience.

I completely lay myself bare in this story, giving you an inside look into some of the deepest hurts and darkest times of my life through Liz. It’s not pretty. It’s not soothing. It may even be difficult to read for some.

But it’s honest, real, and as raw as you can get. It is quite literally my guts on these pages.

Here’s a peak into that world.

 

~The fiercest warriors emerge from the most brutal storms.~

Liz and Ryland Vaughn have fought hard to survive every threat that’s risen against them. But nothing they’ve faced compares to the battle to come.

As they settle in to married life, all seems perfect and quiet. Too quiet. Being a warrior doesn’t allow for peace.

Then one vicious moment throws their world into upheaval and rips their hearts to shreds.

Wanting to get away from it all, they accept a mission to New Orleans to assist fellow warriors. Ryland hopes the time away will repair the rift between them, but the chasm only widens as they face an enemy so subtly horrific, they don’t even know they’re falling.

As they descend into darkness, Liz’s past once again rears its ugly head.

This time, it takes Ryland along for the ride.

Can Liz and Ryland undo the damage to their marriage and hang on to their faith while completing their mission? Or will they fall to temptation and lose everything they’ve fought so hard for?

Lucifer intro

As I promised, this series keeps getting darker. Resilience doesn’t disappoint in that aspect. And there’s one big reason.

 

Lucifer has arrived in the TRWC world.

 

Resilience_ Playground

 

In the story, we know him as “Dom”, but don’t let the pretty facade fool you. The epitome of evil lurks inside that suave, handsome package. Of course, evil wouldn’t be able to do its job if it wasn’t tempting, right? And “Dom” brings the temptation in spades.

 

Fire and ice Resilience

Not to be upstaged, Tiriana brings the pain with her own special brand of torture.

She’s up to her same old tricks, but this time, she’s pulling out all the stops. She’s going for the win and holding nothing back to get it.

 

 

 

Don’t worry, it’s not all gloom and doom for our favorite warriors! With several new characters, and a brand new setting in New Orleans, there are plenty lighter moments.

And of course…

I hope you enjoy this latest addition to the TRWC world. Thanks so much for your support! Don’t forget to go grab your copy!

Resilience on Amazon!

 

And what would a post from me be without some music? Today I’m sharing Liz and Ryland’s song. It’s like it was written just for them. Give it a listen. I dare ya not to cry if you’re already #TeamLizAndRy! ❤

An Open Letter to Jeff Bezos

Your Cheeky Wench

This is the letter that I have sent to Jeff Bezos regarding the problems with KU Book Stuffers, Scammers, and thieves. Take from it what you will.

Dear Mr. Bezos,

I am Suzan Tisdale. I began my self-publishing career in December of 2011. Within a year of releasing my first three novels, I was able to give up my day job.  As a self-published, indie author, I made in one month what would have taken me a year to earn at my regular, 9-5 day job. I was a KDP Select Princess and constantly extolled the virtues of the KDP Select Program. Nothing and no one could get me out of it.  
Then you launched KU 1.0, and my income dropped 90% in the first month of its inception. With that inception came the scammers. And those scammers have only become more brazen and prevalent, as time has passed…

Q&A with Amy Brock McNew: Can Christians write steamy stories?

The New Authors Fellowship

Q: Tell us about your new book, Sleeper.

A:How about I just share the blurb?

A throne with no ruler.

A beast stretching awake.

A goddess unleashed.


Ad for Sleeper, a novel by Amy Brock McNew Makenna is a self-proclaimed freak with abilities she can’t control. She’s clawed her way through life, fighting to maintain her sanity. Her lonely existence has only fed the vicious animal within her, one she barely contains and doesn’t understand.

Rhys has prepared since birth to be alpha and king of an ancient race of wolves. Instead, he leads half a fractured clan against a depraved madman. But victory begins to slip through Rhys’s fingers. Only one thing can save them. A single requirement for him to claim the throne:

Bonding with his mate, the one warrior queen born to each generation, the incarnation of a primal warrior goddess who holds more power than any of them can imagine.

When Rhys finds Makenna…

In Resilience, we go even deeper with Liz and Ry, and the story gets so much darker. As promised. How is it darker, you may ask?

Second, a certain character I know some of you have been waiting for finally shows his face.

 

Lucifer makes his appearance. And it’s nothing like you expect!

 

Ok, I’ve kept you in suspense long enough. Check out the cover, then read on for a taste of Resilience!

The Beast Is Unleashed

AmybookEreader-2

 

It’s release day for Sleeper!

The beast has been unleashed on an unsuspecting populace!

 

Are you ready for an ass-kicking, smart-mouthed beast of a goddess?

How about a ferocious, smokin’ hot, spine of steel Alpha wolf?

Because that’s exactly what you’re gonna get in Sleeper. Makenna and Rhys are more than a fierce handful separately, but when they get together, they are unstoppable! Their chemistry is explosive, like everything about their relationship. I can’t wait for you to take a bite out of their story. I hope you’ll love them as much as I do! How about I give you the lowdown, so you know a little more of what you’re getting into?

A throne with no ruler.

A beast stretching awake.

A goddess unleashed.

Makenna is a self-proclaimed freak with abilities she can’t control. She’s clawed her way through life, fighting to maintain her sanity. Her lonely existence has only fed the vicious animal within her, one she barely contains and doesn’t understand.

Rhys has prepared since birth to be alpha and king of an ancient race of wolves. Instead, he leads half a fractured clan against a depraved madman. But victory begins to slip through Rhys’s fingers. Only one thing can save them. A single requirement for him to claim the throne:

Bonding with his mate, the one warrior queen born to each generation, the incarnation of a primal warrior goddess who holds more power than any of them can imagine.

When Rhys finds Makenna, he believes the battle has shifted in his favor. He never imagined his heart would want her as much as his body. While Makenna is drawn to Rhys with terrifying intensity, his arrival triggers an acceleration in her abilities, the beast within her growing stronger than ever.

Will discovering the truth give Makenna the peace she craves, or will it ignite a savage escalation in the war, drenching their lives in blood?

 

Unleashed_ Sleeper (1)

This book is my first time venturing out on my own without a publisher, and it has been an adventure. But it’s been a labor of love. I’ve had so many amazing people by my side, helping me through the craziness and cheering me on. I could not have done it without them! Susan Garwood, Reggie Deanching, Janeen Ippolito, Liberty Speidel, and Jaye Cox, you guys rock! And thank you to all my readers who’ve supported me in taking this leap. Finally, much love to my husband and son, who’ve put up with take out, frozen pizzas, me looking like a tornado victim (haha), and the house looking the same for a couple months now while I get this book out. You two have been amazing through all of this.

 

 

 

Now that I’ve told you all about Sleeper and given my shout outs, how about you go grab this blazing hot story? You won’t regret it! Oh, and it’s also in KU! Click the link below to join the pack.

Today’s song is the perfect one for the release of Sleeper on the last night of the full moon!
