Copper Reign Final 1ANGELA HARTLEY introduced you to the two leading men in COPPER REIGN – Sinclair Devereux, rock star extraordinaire and so much more than meets the eye, and Nate Phillips, the boy next door, quirky, exasperating, but he’ll be there for you when the chips are down.

ANGELA breathed life into the novel, and shared with you the sweet treats that represents these men: chocolate covered cinnamon bears and lemon torte. Yum! You’ll have to read the book to find out why. And she wrapped up the night with music that brought these characters to life.


Dead HeartR.L. KING brought the spook-tacular fun, sharing favorite scary movies and ghost experiences, perfect for Halloween. He is the author of DEAD HEART the lone horror novel in the 48fourteen collection – but it was THAT good.

ForeshadowedHOLLY M. CAMPBELL introduced you to WITHOUT CURTAINS and divulged how her fears of the dark inspired FORESHADOWED. She gave Hope Murdoch a very good reason for being afraid of the dark – and she should be very afraid. But it’s not all blood, guts, and gore in FORESHADOWED (Book 1 of The Near Deaths Series). It’s mind-reading, death-visions, and a race against time to save a life. And a very sexy, complicated, intriguing Lance Hampton.

HOLLY announced she will re-write the first chapter of FORESHADOWED in the POV of Lance Hampton! Amanda Lennep Hall won the opportunity to have a role in the chapter! Like HOLLY’S Facebook page to find out when it’s up. In the mean time, read FORESHADOWED because FOREWARNED, Book 2, is coming soon!
