When virtual reality blurs the lines of the real world, there’s nowhere left to run.

Working with a mismatch group of warpers and VR hackers, Ari has finally found the independence she’s craved as she continues to hone her ability to manipulate virtual reality. Yet being separated from her family and Reed, leaves her life hollow. When newly forged bonds of friendships introduce a romantic opportunity, her guilt over the past frays at her chance at future happiness and leaves her wondering if keeping those she loves safe means cutting them out of her life.

Determined to make amends, she searches for her missing loved ones, but corporate corruption rises to the highest levels threatening to drown her. New weapons are introduced into virtuals where rules don’t apply. As Ari fights for the lives of those plugged in, the distinction between VR and reality blurs, leaving no one safe.


‘Tis the Season 2019

‘Tis the Season to Read

This year has brought me a wide range of blessings, challenges, and struggles. Some of my joys revolve around my books. I’m in my second year of publishing and have six novels, and one short story completed. I love meeting fellow authors and book lovers, chatting about books, and getting to know this writing community. I hope everyone else has found themselves surrounded with friends and loved ones this holiday season.

One of my favorite parts of this season is to cuddle up with a warm drink and a good book. There are some good deals to check out, and I hope you find joy in a new book or author. I listed a few deals below. This next spring, I’ll be finishing up my Hard Wire Trilogy, and have a new series in the works for late summer. I hope your goals will be lofty for 2020, and your determination never ceasing.  I want to wish everyone a happy holidays and hope the next year finds you safe and sound.

Love,   DeAnna


chocolate peppermint teaI know this is the season of pumpkin lattes and hot chocolate, but I found a new drink this winter. I received a Republic of Tea catalog (yes, they have catalogs and it makes my top ten books list), and they included a free chocolate peppermint tea sample. The blend of flavors was rich, and the smell encompassed the season. Not watery or bland, this low fat option is now one of my favs!

No matter how far she runs, she can’t escape…
Changing the past is an impossibility ex-Marine, Cynthia “Cyn” Arden, understands all too well. Struggling in the aftermath of a botched mission, which cost her two teammates, her military career, and a fledging relationship, she’s brought home by a panicked phone call. The psychic killer behind her nightmares has escaped military custody to hunt down the remaining teammates, one by one. Next on his murderous list—Cyn.

Guest Post – Minette Lauren

I’m excited to host Minette Lauren over to my blog. Contemporary romance is outside my normal genre, but every now and then, I love to explore other novels and this is a treat! Plus she’s shared a recipe as well. Enough from me, I’ll turn the time over to author Minette Lauren to talk about her new novel Cupcakes and Kisses.

Howdy Folks!cupcakes and kisses

I had a lot of fun writing, Cupcakes and Kisses, the very first book in my Hot in Magnolia series. Melvina Banks is a woman who knows her way around baking, and besides her amazing talents in the kitchen, she’s got a heart of gold. She feeds mouthwatering baked goods to the hardworking firefighters and residents of Magnolia on a daily basis. When she’s not working at Pop’s diner, she volunteers at the library to help with the literacy program and heads up the treasury for the Magnolia Blossom’s Ladies’ League. One of her favorite things to bake for the diner is homemade bread. So today, I would like to share one of her most special recipes below.

Thanks for having me,


What does it take to make it Hot in Magnolia?
One cup of sexy
Two tablespoons of sizzle
And a whole lot of heart

Magnolia, Texas, might be booming with single men, but as far as Melvina Banks is concerned, it’s a bust. Between her volunteer work with the Magnolia Blossoms, tutoring at the local library, whipping up cupcakes for the local firefighters, and working at her dad’s diner, she has no time for blind dates let alone finding “the one”. Melvina would much rather spend her precious down time fine-tuning her plan to open a bakery. When celebrity chef, Riley Nash comes to town for a Blossoms fundraiser, Melvina hopes for a chance to pick Riley’s business-savvy brain. With Riley’s nationally acclaimed talents and his successful new restaurant, Braised, he just might be the one who can help Melvina whip her blossoming idea into a recipe for success. Trouble is, she can’t seem to keep her mind on business when it comes to Riley’s devilish good looks and sizzling charm. The heat is turned up when Magnolia’s handsome fire chief, Manny Owens, sparks an interest in Melvina. Torn between two of Magnolia’s hottest bachelors, she can’t help but feel the burn. Can Melvina separate her rising affections for both men, or will she end up with egg on her face?
Cupcakes and Kisses is the first book in the delicious new romantic comedy series, Hot in Magnolia, by award-winning author Minette Lauren. Set in the burgeoning town of Magnolia, Texas, this hot new series is brimming with laugh-out-loud moments and chock-full of endearing characters who will have you rooting for love and cheering for happy endings. Buy HERE on Amazon.

New Release from Pam Eaton


Glad to have Pam Eaton over to share her new release. This one just got moved up on my to-read pile. Hope you enjoy!



 To be extraordinary is rare, but to be unique is downright dangerous.

Rebecca Hunter thought senior year would be all about hockey games, parties, dances, and college applications. When Becca’s absentee mom dies, things take a drastic turn. She just inherited a super power, but has no idea what it is. And now instead of worrying about homework, she’s got a secret group from the FBI at her door looking to recruit her.

Her days of being an ordinary seventeen year old are over, because she’s one of a hundred people left in the world with superpowers. This covert group, Project Lightning, offers to train her, but soon they discover she doesn’t just have her mom’s power, she has more. And that’s never been seen before.

As they try to help her manipulate this new power, agents from Project Lightning go missing, and a few turn up dead. They’re being hunted. And when two men almost kidnap her, she realizes she’s being hunted too. What was supposed to be an amazing senior year has turned into brutal training to find the lost, protect those she loves, and harnessing this new power.

About Pam Eaton


Pam Eaton lives in the deserts of Arizona, but she’ll always consider herself a New Englander at heart. She graduated from Arizona State University with degrees involving education and history. While she loves history, it’ll always take a backseat to the fictional world she stumbled into as a young girl

She lives with her husband, two kids (with one on the way), and two crazy, but lovable labs. It’s a chaotic life, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. Especially since they let her read an insane amount of books, and watch way too many Food Network shows.




June Trop’s New Release: The Deadliest Sport

I’m happy to have June Trop over to visit my blog and share her newest release, The Deadliest Sport.


Help Miriam solve the locked-room murder of a spindling, jackal-faced slave…

The Deadliest Sport is a locked-room murder mystery; the victim, a guest at The Pegasus, a sleazy waterfront inn where Miriam goes to investigate the disappearance of an elderly friend’s will.

Could the bashing of a jackal-faced slave’s skull have anything to do with that will? And who killed him anyway? Miriam’s brother’s buddy, the soon-to-be ex-gladiator who was sentenced to the arena for murder? An itinerant dwarf whose walking stick was the murder weapon? Or the inn’s husky hostess, a tart with both an appetite for sea captains and lofty connections to Nero’s magistrates? Why else would she be so eager to get Miriam off the premises?

Only Miriam is shrewd enough to penetrate a monstrous, multi-layered scheme and bold enough to risk her life to expose the mastermind behind it.


Earliest reviews for THE DEADLIEST SPORT

 “The story has a ring of truth that is rare in historical fiction, and it is clear that the author knows her history. A really good read.”  Taylor Jones, Reviewer

 The Deadliest Sport is filled with well-developed and realistic characters, plenty of tension, and an intriguing mystery, as well as a strong authenticity that was a real treat. This is one you won’t want to put down.” Regan Murphy, Reviewer

Strong Secondary Characters & A Free Short Story

I was recently asked in an interview about which characters I love. My mind immediately went to some of my secondary characters. While I love my main characters, I enjoy my minor characters because they have so much story left that the readers never see. When I start a novel, I begin with the characters. I write short stories, journal entries, and whatever I need to get inside the characters mind. Then when I began writing, the characters take off. Sometimes they do as expected, but every now and then they take a twist I didn’t see coming and controlled chaos ensues. It’s part of what makes writing fun.

One of my favorite secondary characters is Grace. We meet her halfway through the story, as a product of the magicians’ slave trade. She’s compliant and defeated at first, but she never loses her brazen personality. When she is given a second chance, she fights with everything she has.EvilEtched in Gold (1)

Another character that makes a brief appearance and strong impression is Nevada. He struck me so much that I wrote a short story about him, Evil Etched in Gold. I’m offering this story for a limited time on my website when you sign up for my newsletter (click HERE). Nevada is an illusionist with the power to look like anyone. He is on the run from the local coven and with Nevada, nothing is ever as it seems. We’ll be seeing more of Nevada in book two, Unholy Sundering out with Black Opal Book 2018.

Hope you enjoy!
