Forgetting Fallenwood by Leslie D. Soule

The Beauty of Collaboration
By Leslie D. Soule
            It was a dark and stormy night. Yes, I am referring to last Sunday, and the very first meeting of a group dubbed the Sacramento Writers’ Circle. We huddled around our laptops and blonde ales at the Hoppy Brewing Company and we talked about movies and secret agent spy rings, favorite authors and songs we’d heard – everything, it seemed, but the business of writing. So why had we gathered here at the brewery instead of lingering by ourselves, working away at our manuscripts at home and doing the work that truly only the author can?
            It is true that the lonely work of an author can become tedious, but there is a more important argument for the necessity of collaboration – that out of the frothy, chaotic soup of collaboration, mental batteries are recharged, feedback is given (for free, no less!), and ideas are born. Going in, I had a mental image of what a writer’s group would be, and it involved a lot more solemn reading and generally a lot less fun. There is another argument in favor of collaboration as well – the “L’art pour l’art” (Art for art’s sake) philosophy that seems to have become so lost to modern utilitarian sensibilities is very much awakened when kindred spirits gather with the intention of letting their imaginations loose for a while.
            Are you part of a writer’s group? If not, I’d recommend it. Collaboration is a beautiful thing.


What happens when Ash accidentally makes her way through another portal, this time into the Other Realm, and forgets she ever went to Fallenwood? More importantly, how much of one’s identity is made up of memories? Fallenwood 2 is the continuing journey of heroine Ash Kensington. Struggling with a deep sense of grief, sorrow, and overall confusion, Ash tries to work her way through to a deeper, underlying meaning. This search leads her back to Fallenwood, where the mystery unravels itself as she realizes that a very sinister force may be underlying everything… 

Leslie D. Soule is a fantasy writer from Sacramento, California. She has a B.A. in English and is currently working on her first-ever quadrilogy, The Fallenwood Chronicles.

Unforgettable Heroes

Amazon Best Selling, and multi-published author, Janet Eaves, fell in love with reading while in High School after being given a novel called Run Baby Run. That story captured her imagination and fed her mind in a way that nothing ever had before.
What followed were those thick Romance novels of the time that swept her away to places she’d never been, introduced her to people whose lives were filled with adventure and passion, and reading became an addiction that kept feeding her own (already overdeveloped) imagination.
After years of devouring books written by others she ran across a novel and thought, “I can write a better book than that!” Which now makes her laugh. Her first attempt at writing was a story she called Passion’s Fruit, which she ran across a few years ago in a box of old manuscripts that never saw the light of day. Needless to say, she couldn’t, at that time, write a better story than the one she’d read.
But that “not so great” novel was the catalyst that began a journey that lasted years, until she finally found Ladies of Legend series.

that one story a publishing house thought worthy of release. And the best part was that she was in the company of what became her SisterWriters – three fellow writers and friends who helped develop and write what ultimately became the

That first released story (Claiming the Legend) was the first book of a series that is still going strong today. In fact, Janet just finished another Ladies of Legend novella that will be released in April of this year called Crossroads. Her SisterWriters, Maddie James, Jan Scarbrough, and Magdalena Scott, will have Ladies of Legend releases to follow later in 2014, as well.
Janet also has many other writing projects ongoing and doesn’t plan to leave her writing-cave anytime soon. One of those projects was accepting an invitation for a spot in the UNFORGETTABLE HEROES boxed set and she is honored to be in the company of so many wonderful Turquoise Morning Press authors.
Janet’s contribution, SINS OF THE FATHER, is about a young woman whose life always seems to be on hold…only she doesn’t know why. When she has the chance to step out and declare her freedom from those who have always kept her on a tight leash, she embraces the experience with wild abandon. But she doesn’t really know who she is, or who her parents were. Worse, she doesn’t know what kind of danger can claim her now that she’s left the protection she’s always resented. And though the sexy and delightful struggling artist, Phillip, seems like he could become the love of her life, she has no idea who he really is either…. Friend with benefits? Possible life-long lover? Or foe? She can only hope in the end that he’s her UNFORGETABLE HERO!

About the Author:
As is the way with writers of fantasy, Janet Eaveshas always lived in other worlds. From the beginning of her memories to this day, she has taken pleasure in those moments when nothing stands between her and that flight of the imagination which rolls scene after scene, carrying her to uncharted places and introduces her to previously nonexistent people that only she hears and sees, until, blessedly, she has the privilege of harnessing the magic and sharing her visions with others through the written word.

A stormy night changes their lives forever…
The baseball diamond isn’t the only field for all-star player Alex Tavonesi; he also runs his family’s prestigious vineyard. What he can’t seem to run is his love life. He’s closing in on the perfect vintage and the perfect game, but so far the perfect woman has eluded him.

Jackie’s passion and courage lead her to discover what’s killing the sea mammals. The culprits want to silence her, and Alex is the only one standing in their way. What will he sacrifice to save the woman he loves?

We’re kicking off the month-long celebration with three new Brazens, each with a smoking hot military man front and center and each for just 99 cents!
Marine for Hire, by Tawna FenskeMFH_500
She thought she’d sworn off military men for good…
Sam Kercher is every inch a wickedly hot Marine. Tall. Sexy. Lethal. When his best friends call in a favor, Sam is forced to face an entirely new line of duty—playing nanny for their newly divorced sister and her squirming seven-month-old twin boys. If Sam can dissemble an M16 in his sleep, diaper duty should be a cakewalk…right?
Unfortunately, Operation Nanny isn’t quite that simple. Sheridan has sworn off overbearing military men, so Sam must protect her from her dirtbag ex without revealing just how much he has in common with her brothers. Or that he’s been ordered not to touch her. Ever. Problem is, Sheri’s one hell of a gorgeous woman, capable of making this hard-bodied Marine even harder. And Sam wants her bad.
Protect the girl. Care for the babies. Hide his identity. And keep his hands off. But even the most disciplined Marine has weaknesses…and Sheridan is one Sam might not be able to resist.
Staking His Claim, by Tessa BaileySHC_500
He wants her. All of her.
NYPD sniper Matt Donovan is in Hell. Instead of driving his best friend’s little sister home from college, he’s stuck with her roommate—a fresh-faced ray-of-sunshine with a body that makes grown men weep. There’s no way he’ll allow himself to taint the little vixen, no matter how hard she tries to tempt him, so he resigns himself to the longest—and hardest—drive of his life.
Matt’s obvious attraction suits grad student Lucy Mason just fine. She had no idea her brother’s best friend was so deliciously hot. Knowing he’d never have his wicked way with his buddy’s sister, she lies about her identity and seduces him. But Matt’s no fumbling college boy. His desires run deep—and dark—and he wants to teach Lucy what wicked really means.
Matt’s demanding appetites only make Lucy want more. But when her cover’s blown, he’s furious—even as his hunger for her becomes insatiable. Matt can’t trust anyone, least of all himself. And he knows all too well that darkness always destroys the light…
TY_500Temporarily Yours, by Jen McLaughlin, writing as Diane Alberts
This soldier’s the perfect hoax…if she doesn’t fall for him first.
Stats whiz Kayla Moriarity knows her way around numbers and algorithms. Men, on the other hand, are unsolvable equations. Now Kayla’s en route to her sister’s wedding—without the fictional boyfriend she invented for her family. Fortunately, her plane comes complete with complimentary cocktails and a ridiculously hot ex-marine in the seat beside her. And that’s all it takes for Kayla’s inhibitions to go sailing out the airlock…
Cooper Shillings has soft spot for people in trouble, but he certainly wasn’t expecting to land in it himself—and definitely not while getting naughty mid-air with a sexy southern belle. When he hears Kayla’s predicament, however, he offers his services as a stand-in boyfriend. After all, he’s heading overseas soon…and how could he refuse a little no-strings wickedness?
It’s the perfect plan. And all Kayla has to do is ensure her family falls for the ultimate bluff, without falling for it—and Cooper—in the process…
We appreciate you and want readers to be able to fill up their eReaders all month long with great books at introductory prices.  Thank you for an amazing
first three years.  This is just the beginning.
