This gorgeous cover hints and tantalizes. If you've read DISSENSION, Book 1, by Adrienne Monson, you understand how anxious we are to read this next book, which is sure to be as expertly told as the first.



Leisha and Samantha barely survived the vampires and immortals six months ago. Now, an explosive battle between the vampires and immortals seems imminent. 

It's more important than ever before that the prophecy child is found, but there's a problem—Leisha has lost her powers. She seems like nothing more than a human. Her newfound humanity is further complicated when Tafari, her old lover, appears with a desire for reconciliation.

Can Leisha lock up the past to save those she loves? Or will fate tear everything from her once again?

We are excited this Mother/Daughter duo is putting out another novel in their Scarily Ever Laughter series.  If it is anything like their first book, Cinderskella, LITTLE DEAD RIDING HOOD will not only be a hoot, but enthralling as well.
Sounds like we get to visit the neighborhood and characters from Cinderskella again.  A BIG plus in our opinion.

SOOOO- What do you think?


You know things are going to suck when you’re the new kid. But when you’re the new kid and a vampire… well, it bites!

Unlike most kids, Scarlet Small’s problems go far beyond just trying to fit in. She would settle for a normal life, but being twelve years old for an entire century is a real pain in the neck. Plus, her appetite for security guards, house pets and bloody toms (tomato juice) is out of control. So in order to keep their vampire-secret, her parents, Mort and Drac, resort to moving for the hundredth time, despite Scarlet being dead-set against it. Things couldn’t be worse at her new school, either. Not only does she have a strange skeleton-girl as a classmate, but a smelly werewolf is intent on revealing her secret. When she meets Granny—who fills her with cookies, goodies, and treats, and seems to understand her more than anyone—she’s sure things will be different. But with a fork-stabbing incident, a cherry pie massacre, and a town full of crazy people, Scarlet’s O-positive she’ll never live to see another undead day.

Not even her Vampire Rule Book can save her from the mess she’s in. Why can’t she ever just follow the rules?

COVER REVEAL & GIVEAWAY: SPLINTERS by F.J.R. Titchenell and Matt Carter

Eerie & Spooky. Can't wait to get a peek inside.

First book of The Prospero Chronicles series. Tentative publication date: Fall 2014
Book Blurb

Under ordinary circumstances, Ben and Mina would never have had reason to speak to each other; he's an easy-going people person with a healthy skepticism about the paranormal, and she's a dangerously obsessive monster-hunter with a crippling fear of betrayal.
But the small town of Prospero, California, has no ordinary circumstances to offer. In order to uncover a plot set by the seemingly innocent but definitely shapeshifting monsters-that-look-like-friends-family-and-neighbors, the two stark opposites must both find ways to put aside their differences and learn to trust each other.


For a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card, all you have to do is add SPLINTERS to your "to-read" list on Goodreads before March 7th.  Entering is easy--simply click on this link to reach the site: SPLINTERS GOODREADS GIVEAWAY
Everyone who adds Splinters to their Goodreads want-to-read list on or before March 7th will be entered to win. A winner will be selected at random and contacted by Goodreads direct message.

 Meet the Authors

F.J.R. Titchenell and Matt Carter met and fell in love in a musical theatre class at Pasadena City College and have been inseparable ever since. Though they have both dreamed of being writers since a very young age, they both truly hit their stride after they met, bouncing ideas off of one another, forcing each other to strive to be better writers, and mingling Matt's lifelong love of monsters with Fiona's equally disturbing inability to forget the tumult of high school. They were married in 2011 in a ceremony that involved kilts, Star Wars music, and a cake topped by figurines of them fighting a zombified wedding party.

 F.J.R. Titchenell is also the author of Confessions of the Very First Zombie Slayer (That I Know of), to be released May 6th, 2014.  A great book!  I've read it.
