CAST YOUR CHARACTERS: Sabotaged Desires by Rebecca Airies





Suz Lore thought she had everything she wanted, a job as an engineer and a position on a colony ship headed to another planet. That was before her arranged ménage marriage with Robert Smith and David Bradford turned into a disaster. She’d thought they were building more than a sizzling sexual relationship, but all they do is argue now. She isn't surprised when they're sequestered in a room in order to reignite the passion between them and learn to trust again.

Robert believes she betrayed him while David is stuck in the middle of their conflict. Getting Robert to talk about what made him angry is difficult, but they discover there's far more behind their problems than a message with misleading information. A virus has overtaken the ship's computers, put them on a different heading and cut them off from all communication. They must work together to find a way to survive and rebuild their relationship.

Emilia Clarke (specifically as she looks when playing Daenerys) as SUSANNE LORE
She’s the heroine of Sabotaged Desires and an engineer on the ship. She likes fixing things, but isn’t quite sure how to fix her marriage. She married both Robert Smith and David Bradford shortly before they left Earth on a mission to colonize another planet. But lately she and Robert have been at each other’s throats. She doesn’t like taking orders and demanding alpha personalities on a good day, but since Robert jumped to that conclusion, her nerves have been stretched taut.

Shemar Moore as ROBERT SMITH
Robert Smith is a Captain to the T. He’s in charge of the Heraste and ensuring the colonists get to Ahbell, their colony planet. He’s accustomed to giving orders and having them followed immediately. He also has a past that makes any perceived betrayal or cheating a hot button issue for him. There are some facets of the situation that he’s missed because he’s so angry about what Susanne did.

Michael Shanks as DAVID BRADFORD
David is a doctor, one of the medical officers aboard the Heraste. He’s normally calm and decisive and he’s not enjoying the tension surrounding him the last few days. He’s stuck in the middle between Robert and Susanne and realizes that they need to make Robert listen, because even he can see that everything isn’t as it seems.

Adrien Brody as JOSH DUNN
Josh Dunn is a communications specialist. He finds himself in the middle of a situation no one planned for when they discover their colony mission won’t go as planned.

Jessica Chastain as JENNY FOLEY
Jenny Foley is one of the navigation specialists on the Heraste.

Aaron Diaz as TYE LASH
Tye Lash is a data technician aboard the Heraste and one of the colonists eager to build a new society.

Anne Hathaway as MONICA HAMILTON
Monica Hamilton is a system tech and one of the people responsible for discover the sabotage aboard the Heraste

The man who sent the message to Robert that started the argument between them.

A voracious reader since childhood, Rebecca Airies has always enjoyed getting lost in the fantastic worlds of science fiction, horror, fantasy and romance. When she began to write her own stories, they always had a romantic edge.

Rebecca currently lives in Texas and writes with the help of a couple feline critics. She’s a multi-published author whose muse loves fantasy, sci-fi and the paranormal, as well as strong heroines who are sometimes as stubborn as their heroes. She loves to here from her readers.

BOOK: The Curiosity Killers by K.W. Taylor



In the twenty-second century, a second Civil War is decades past. The states of the New British Empire have been reduced to working with Victorian-era technology—that is, except physicist Edward Vere, who invents time travel with a little help from aviation pioneer Wilbur Wright.

Vere partners with historian Ben Jonson to monetize the invention, founding the first time travel agency. Unbeknownst to them, a serial killer is using the technology to murder without detection. When Ben discovers the killer has targeted the woman he loves, the mild-mannered academic must become brave enough to change history rather than merely observing it.

What They’re Saying About The Curiosity Killers

“Taylor’s first foray into science-fiction borrows from her urban fantasy and horror background for a unique spin on the time travel novel. The Curiosity Killers is an exciting adventure set in a beautifully detailed alternate United States with enough serial killers, monsters, and mystery to keep readers on their toes.”
—J.L. Gribble, author of the Steel Empire series

“Wholly original and a hell of a lot of fun!”
—Tim Waggoner, author of the Nekropolis series

“From the moment you read that first paragraph, K.W. Taylor zaps you through time and space and alternate history at a thriller pace with some of the most engaging traveling companions anyone could ask for.”
—Heidi Ruby Miller, award-winning author of the Ambasadora series


K.W. Taylor is the author of the urban fantasy Sam Brody series, about a dragonslaying disc jockey (The Red Eye and The House on Concordia Drive, both 2014 from Alliteration Ink). She has an MFA from Seton Hill University. Taylor lives in a restored Victorian home in Ohio with her tech writer husband and—unlike every other novelist in the world—an insanely photogenic kitten. She teaches college English and Women’s Studies and blogs at kwtaylorwriter.com. The Curiosity Killers is her first science fiction novel.

Jeremy Burns travels…constantly, but right now he’s settling into his new office and celebrating the release of THE DUBAI BETRAYAL, a geopolitical spy thriller featuring Wayne Wilkins, a fan favorite from Burns’s acclaimed first novel, From the Ashes.

BOOK: Sehmah's Truth (Beneath the Willow Book 1) by A.J. Culey



She created his world and made him the hero of her story. Now she's living that story with him.

Samantha and her twin brother spent their childhood creating an imaginary world beneath the willow tree in their backyard. In the aftermath of his death, Samantha writes one final story destroying their creation. Two years later, she is unexpectedly transported to their fantasy world, where she is immediately targeted by assassins. On the run, with danger at every turn, she meets characters she once created and recognizes storylines she herself wrote. However, this story is darker than she remembers, and no longer follows the path she originally penned.

Desperate to make amends for certain storylines and to prevent others, Samantha joins forces with Takeem, the hero of every story she’s ever written. As they travel through his world, they learn truths about his past and the loss of his world’s ancestral magicks. As these truths are revealed, Samantha and Takeem are faced with difficult choices that will impact their world forever.

A.J. Culey is a teacher, world traveler and writer whose imagination is often out of control. When driving around town, standing in lines at the grocery store or doing chores around the house, her brain is frequently filled with images of cats in flight, antlers on a rampage and rabbits wrestling with tigers. She regularly gets caught giggling at nothing and when asked for an explanation simply says, “I crack myself up.”

An avid animal lover, A.J. volunteers for local rescue organizations and participates in Trap-Neuter-Release programs for feral cats. If wrangling cats and bunnies were a sporting event, she’d be an Olympic gold medalist.

A.J. recently completed her MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. Her thesis project was the YA fantasy, SEHMAH’S TRUTH, and perhaps the only thing she’s ever written that was completely serious in nature.

To learn more about A.J.’s books, visit her website at www.ajculey.com. You can also follow her on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ajculey.author or follow Rex on Twitter @Tyrabbisaurus (Disclaimer: A.J. takes no responsibility for the rabbit’s ridiculous tweets.)

CAST YOUR CHARACTERS: Notes of Temptation by Rebecca Halsey





DESCRIPTION: Together they take the stage. Together they must defend it to the death.

When Carrie Cooper leaves her small gold-mining town to seek her fortune, it’s not until she arrives in L.A. that she learns her college certificate is a fraud. The only work available is in a less-than-respectable speakeasy.

The job comes with the opportunity to take the stage with Oz Dean, the club’s captivating bandleader. But rivals out for her blood along with her place in the spotlight lurk behind the curtain.

Oz Dean has the rare ability to “see” music as brilliant colors, but nothing has ever dazzled him like Carrie’s pure, choirgirl voice. With a mob debt hanging over his head like a guillotine, he organizes a revue that will launch them all to stardom. Unfortunately, his bold move attracts exactly the kind of criminal attention he’d like to avoid.

Mired in Hollywood’s underbelly, caught off-guard by their growing attraction, Carrie and Oz are forced to consider the cost of success. Or their one chance to make beautiful music together could be their last.

Louise Brooks as CARRIE COOPER
Carrie is a small-town girl who moves to the big city to get a respectable job. Instead, she finds herself in the behind-the-scene scandals of the West Edge, one of Hollywood’s most notorious nightclubs. Although she looks like the epitome of an ingénue, Carrie has the grit of a girl raised in a rough-and-tumble Western town.

A young Clark Gable as OZ DEAN
Oz is the dynamic bandleader for the West Edge band. Determined to launch his orchestra to fame and fortune, he finds renewed inspiration in Carrie’s pure choir girl voice, but first he must escape a mob debt.

The Marvelous Minnie Mitford has headlined the West Edge stage for the last year. She is not about to let new girl Carrie Cooper take away her spotlight.

Todd Duncan as ELLISON Wade
Following Uncle Jim, their de facto father figure and musical mentor, Ellison and Oz grew up as brothers. Whether on stage or in the streets, Ellison has Oz’s back.

Carmel Myers as RUBY THOMSON
Ruby is the first friend Carrie makes in Los Angeles. She may be a party girl, but she has a heart of gold.

Errol Flynn as DORSEY O’TANNER
Dorsey O’Tanner has a deep baritone and good looks. On the outside he appears to be your typical Hollywood heartthrob, but Oz suspects he has plans to take his place at the West Edge.


Rebecca Halsey is the author of historic and contemporary romance. She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Georgia.

BOOK: Look Before You Jump (Bartender Babe Chronicles Book 1) by D.A. Bale



When scandal comes calling and Vicki leaps into the fray, you know it’s gonna be big. This here’s Texas after all.

Meet Victoria Bohanan, a twenty-six year-old Dallas debutante turned bartender babe who rejected her father’s saintly sinner ways and struck out on her own – well, sort of. Her mom’s credit card comes to the rescue on occasion, but Vicki is still her own woman, with less than lusty – er, lofty – aspirations and a mind constantly limping from the gutter.

But Texas moms don’t raise fools. Vicki will earn that twenty dollar tip by guessing the mistress’ name and your favorite drink faster than you can belly up to the bar. That sharp wit has gotten her out of more than one disastrous situation – until the mouth sinks her right into another.

When an old high school flame returns to town with a pregnant wife in tow and a pastorate position lodged under his belt, life quickly becomes tangled. This time we’re not talking between the sheets. Sooner than Vicki can down a shot of Jack, her former boy-toy is embroiled in scandal that threatens to implode the megachurch his parents built – and send the gossiping gaggle into a tailspin faster than a quarterback sack on Sunday.

Join the fun in book one of the Bartender Babe Chronicles. Light on mystery and long on – well, you know.

Sometimes life emulates fiction.

Life is filled with tragedy and Ms. Bale's writing reflects this reality. However, there is always a silver lining...even if one must spend their entire life searching for it.

In her previous career, Ms. Bale traveled the United States as a Government Relations Liaison, working closely with Congressional offices and various government agencies. This experience afforded her a glimpse into the sometimes "not so pretty" reality of the political sphere. Much of this reality and various locations throughout her travels make it into her writing.

She dreams of the day she can return to visit Alaska.

INTERVIEW: Heidi Ruby Miller by Basil Sands at The Big Thrill


Due to some business travel to Fairbanks Alaska I had the chance to read STARRIE by Heidi Ruby Miller in two sittings on the same day. And let me just say, I’m glad I had that opportunity. STARRIE is one ripping fast book and a well told story. I loved it! It was a perfect diversion as I looked out the airplane window across the billowing clouds and Alaskan mountains.

BASIL: As I read the story I was impressed by the tightness of the writing. How do you recommend new writers achieve good clean prose?

HEIDI: Like I tell my writing students at Seton Hill, know your intent for each scene—ideally, you will be showing characterization while moving the plot forward. A few words can be more powerful than an entire page, so make them count by eliminating redundancies, unnecessary gestures and facial expressions, and constant internal questioning by the POV character. Chapter outlines or summaries are a surefire way to keep each scene on task for me.

Read the entire interview in The Big Thrill magazine.

REVIEW: Starrie by Heidi Ruby Miller at Publisher's Weekly


Nice review from Publisher's Weekly for Starrie (From the World of Ambasadora)! Though it is a standalone novel, this book takes place chronologically right after Greenshift and runs concurrent with Marked by Light.

"Miller’s short third novel in the space-faring, caste-bound, hierarchically polyamorous, and socially striated Ambasadora universe (after 2013’s Greenshift) manages to balance the exoticized presentation of the setting with relatable human interaction...the romance between Ben and Naela highlights the emotional side of reaching out to those who are different from you, even in a world where those differences are stylized and codified."

BOOK: Dirt by Teffanie Thompson



Washington would rather be playing basketball in the tournament instead of traveling to East Texas for a family reunion. He hates to read, but takes off on his own with a book to satisfy his parents.

Washington travels back to the past where he encounters his ancestor Square and witnesses the brutal punishment of a slave who is found reading.

When Washington steps out of the protecting circle of dirt, Washington fears he may never be able to return to the present or see his family again.

"Once while listening to public radio, I heard first person accounts of the slave narratives, Remembering Slavery. I realized that every single ancestral win was also a win for me. This is a thought that resonated with me, and I wanted to share that with young Americans. Reading, in its own way, is a beautiful legacy," Thompson said.

"The book, Dirt, gives a reader a fast read on a tough subject. Living in the times that we do, I think it’s a very appropriate image of the past we may have forgotten. The main character, Washington, takes on a journey throughout the all too recent times of slavery in the Deep South. There the young encounters problems from the brutality of slavery, to finding and leaving his first love interest. In a small East Texas town, young Square finds his roots, his courage, and a new admiration for the written word. An entertaining and important read for any age, Dirt from Teffanie Thompson illustrates, inspires, and motivates young readers to be conscious in the new age." - Imhotep White

Teffanie Thompson grew up in Killeen, Texas where she spent many years playing with words on Gaynor Drive in Sugar Loaf.

Today she lives in Midland, Texas, without her angelic oldest daughter and creative genius son. Teffanie does reside with her farmer husband, Ginger puppy and brilliant youngest daughter, working in education.

A Master's graduate of Seton Hill University's esteemed Writing Popular Fiction program Teffanie has written several pictureless stories for children, teens, and ballerinas. When not writing, she enjoys working, hula hooping, road tripping, attending concerts and, yes, watching marathon reality television.

BOOK: Starrie (From the World of Ambasadora) by Heidi Ruby Miller



In this caste-ruled society, where multiple partners are the norm, celebrity, beauty, and power mean everything. Love and jealousy are considered emotional fallacies, nothing more than fleeting moods and sentiments biased by hormones. But sometimes people just fall in love...and that can be deadly.

Ben Anlow and his team embark on a revenge mission to bring down serial murderer and rapist, Liu Stavros, at his fortress in the inhospitable mountains of Tampa Three. But contractor Naela Starrie already has her own kind of vengeance planned for Stavros. Even as a battle-hardened soldier, Ben's not prepared for the darkness he sees in the female assassin, nor the way she challenges his prejudices about her people when she makes a sacrifice to save to his life.

ARTICLE: Heidi Ruby Miller's Uncanny Interview with Michael A. Arnzen at SIGMA


I've known Mike Arnzen for a long time and always suspected there was something a little different about him, something a little...uncanny. After his presentation at the December 2015 Parsec meeting and this interview, I'm convinced it's totally true. Read the entire interview at gorelets.com or in the SIGMA newsletter, edited by David Brody.

His non-fiction book The Popular Uncanny is due out with Guide Dog Books in 2016.

BOOK: Codename: Night Witch (The Girls from Alcyone) by Cary Caffrey



Night Witch continues the story of an incredible heroine, Sigrid Novak, a five-foot one (and one half inch, thank you) powerhouse of a character.

The story begins with Sigrid waking to find herself a prisoner in an abandoned research facility. She doesn't know where she is, or how she got there. She doesn't even know if her lover - who she last saw bleeding to death on the field of battle - is even alive. What Sigrid soon discovers is that many, many years have passed since the events of Bellatrix (book two). The world she awakens to is not the place she left. This is a world embroiled in war. Tens of thousands of the Federation's ruling elite are dead, major military facilities destroyed. With every corporate enclave that falls, the legend grows. They call her the Night Witch. A champion to some, a nightmare for others. Wherever she goes, death is soon to follow.

No one knows who this Night Witch is, though Sigrid is starting to suspect.

Lost and alone, and with only the voices in her head for company, Sigrid sets out to learn the truth, and to settle a deadly score once and for all.

Cary Caffrey is the author of the best selling Girls from Alcyone trilogy. When not staring at blank pages and blinking cursors, Cary can always be found devouring all things pop culture. Current obsessions include Jessica Jones, Lara Croft and, for better or for worse, Star Wars. Has JJ ever made a good movie? We're about to find out.
