A deft exploration of the weight of grief and cost of revenge, Breeana Shields’s Bone Charmer duology reaches its spine-tingling conclusion in this high-octane fantasy-thriller.

Breeana is sharing a special writing playlist:

Deep Focus Playlist for Writing

I’ve never been able to write to music with lyrics. I find it too distracting. However, music is still an important part of my process in several ways. First, it’s incredibly helpful before I begin a new book—when I’m still daydreaming about the story and trying to find the heart of it. Or—once I’ve begun—when I’m hopelessly stuck and need to take some time to figure out what comes next. Before starting a new project, I make a playlist and listen during non-working times–while I’m driving, cooking, or doing anything else that leaves my mind free to wander. It helps channel my thoughts toward the book, and I’ve untangled many thorny plot issues with the aid of Spotify and a little downtime.

But while I’m actually drafting, I either write in silence, or listen to something inspiring without lyrics—the kind of music that can both set the mood and fade into the background so it doesn’t interfere with my concentration.

So today, instead of sharing a playlist for the book, I want to share my ultimate deep focus playlist—music I find helpful while I’m actually writing. All of these songs provided relaxing and/or inspiring background noise that helped me focus while I wrote THE BONE CHARMER duology. I hope you enjoy!

Lightfall on Swoon Reads

untitled-1

Stuck inside because of COVID-19? Need a distraction? Check out this brand new book by M.A. Phipps and Rebecca Jaycox. So what’s it about? Let’s take a read:

Luna has always been told she’s crazy. That’s why she’s spent the last year in a psychiatric ward for teens—until a mysterious doctor takes her away to a school in Egypt for children with special abilities. There, she’s forced to question if she’s actually insane or if there’s more to her troubled past than she thought.

Caleb is a Dark Nephilim who’s been chosen to go undercover as an exchange student at the Light Nephilim school in Alexandria. Once there, his mission is simple: find a way to free his grandfather, Alexander the Great, who was entombed after trying to take over the world.

When Luna and Caleb cross paths, they’re drawn to each other, but with eons of prejudice standing between them, can they overcome the divide between the Lights and the Darks? Or will the trail of secrets and lies they discover tear them apart?

Sounds intriguing AND for a limited time you can pick up a free copy on Swoon Reads. 

Enjoy the book and be sure to rate, review, and comment on the site.

Saving another’s life may save her own.

As the child of the kingdom of Salia’s most powerful mages, Lex’s future had seemed bright. That is until she lost everything. Her dreams. Her parents. Even when she thought her life was changing for the better, she lost her husband. When a mysterious stranger turns up nearly dead on her doorstep, Lex must make a decision. Either fight for her future or lose more than her own life.

For Amell, time is almost up. He has spent nearly thirty years searching for the balance to his magic he needs in order to survive. After an unexpected attack, a twist of fate hands him what he has been searching for in the form of someone that could threaten everything.

When the choices are made, will they find a future they could have never hoped for, or will they uncover plots more sinister than they imagined?

Dragons not your thing? How about some werewolves. Holly Hook’s Wolf Bound is free for a limited time.

A young woman with a need to protect.
A young man drawn to her acceptance.
A rival pack threatening to destroy all they love.

Loner, misfit, wild. Everything about Cayden should push me away. Deep down, I know the explanation for his graceful walk, his ability to fight off guys twice his size, and his amazing hearing. Especially when the wolves appear in the woods around town and a beautiful male shares Cayden’s dark hair, red highlights, and his wild, hazel eyes. I should fear him, but he draws me in. Until Cayden, no one else around me understood what it’s like to be radically different. But Cayden warns me off though his eyes yearn for me.

A Book of Manners, Magic and Mayhem!

Hey everyone how is it where you are? It’s really really freezing in St. Louis this week. Did I ever tell you how much I hate the bad weather? So what better thing to do when it’s cold than stay inside and read?

So how about a bit of Paranormal Victorian steampunk fantasy, with some Gothic horror and a touch of romance. Doesn’t that sound awesome — and it’s FREE from now until Feb 4. I’m going to pick a copy — you should too 🙂

So what’s it about? Well ….

After her father is murdered, budding scientist Jemima Hardcastle is packed off to boarding school by her guardian and heir to Willow Park, Edward Huntington. When they finally meet again at a house party, four years later, Edward doesn’t recognise his ward and the two share a flirtation that is broken when Jemima confesses her true identity. The murder of another party guest and the theft of a precious gem interrupt any chance they have to resolve their feelings. Edward coldly ships Jemima off once more – this time back to her old home.

At Willow Park, under the chaperonage of the odious Aunt Prudence and meek cousin Milly, Jemima is expected to concentrate on her needlework. Instead, she finds a friend in Edward’s man, Fulton, who shows her the artificial leg his employer built for him. Impressed by this revelation of scientific genius and generosity, Jemima’s esteem for Edward rises and she longs to see him again — but he does not arrive home as planned. When she discovers he has been abducted, Jemima plans a rescue, but unbeknownst to her, Edward is a gentleman magician and his devices have more than science on their side.

She and Fulton plunge into London’s hidden world of dark sorcery as they search everywhere for Edward — in the slums, manufactureys, and even a bawdy house. When they finally find him, Jemima’s life is already on the line.

As Edward struggles with his feelings for his ward, Jemima’s only hope for survival is if he uses one of his devices to revive the vampiric beast, Geneck … but the ensuing havoc could destroy London itself.
