“Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see to the end of your headlights; but you can make the whole trip that way.” – E. L. Doctorow “If you wait for inspiration to write; you’re not a writer, you’re a waiter.” – Dan Poynter “The faster I write, the better my output. If I’m going slow, I’m in trouble. It means I’m pushing the words instead of being pulled by them.” – Raymond Chandler

Samantha Warren is a fantasy and science fiction author who spends her days immersed in dragons, spaceships, and vampires. With her pet dragon, Anethesis, she ventured to the ends of the universe, but the cost of space travel cut into her sock fetish fund, so she sold her ship and returned home. When she isn’t writing, she’s milking cows or trying to feed them PopTarts. She spends a lot of time in her weed patch (aka: garden), watching any show featuring Gordon Ramsay, or posting random things on her blog.

Blood Bound

By: Karina Gioertz

Once inseparable, Scott McCarthy and his cousins Ryan and Ben have been alienated from each other for over a decade. When Tommy, the youngest of the four cousins, is arrested for murder the McCarthy Boys turn to each other once more, as they do the only thing that comes naturally ~ whatever it takes to uncover the truth, regardless of the cost or consequence. As more secrets rise to the surface and lies become unveiled, Scott clings tightly to the two things he knows for certain. He had known killers and he had known Tommy. The two did not overlap.

She Wulf By Sheryl Steins Sep 1, 2012

At the same time, a mystery man is located near the demon’s location. This is no ordinary man. He is a Viking, from thirteen centuries in the past. When Annie is sent through an ancient time portal she learns of a prophecy claiming it is she who must rid ancient England of the regenerating demons. Annie struggles with her new destiny as she tries to figure out a way to destroy the un-killable demons and return home. She Wulf is the follow-up to The Day of First Sun, the first novel by Sheryl Steines. Continue the adventure of Annie and Cham as they set out to save the world one more time.

Evil Eternal By: Hunter Shea Sep 2, 2012 Only one priest can battle the ultimate evil! An evil as ancient as time itself has arisen and taken root in New York City. Father Michael, the mysterious undead defender of the Church, answers the call to action from the Vatican, while Cain, a malevolent wraith that feeds on fear and blood, has taken the life and form of the city's mayor and readies a demonic army to ignite the apocalypse. With an unlikely ally, Father Michael will prepare for the grim confrontation as he grapples with his sworn duty to God and the shreds of humanity left beating in his immortal heart. The time is ripe for Cain and the fulfillment of dark prophecies. Father Michael must battle Cain and his horde of demons in a final showdown that could very well herald the end of mankind.
