Cover Reveal: Malevolent Mind by Misty Harvey

Published February 24, 2017 by Jennifer Loring

img_0208 Malevolent Mind

A story so dark, twisted, and unfinished has a way of driving the sanest to the brink of insanity.

Between the constant bullying from Heath and his friends and the unrest of not knowing what happened to her twin, Raven seeks revenge. Years later, she becomes the nanny for Heath’s young son, Kade. She helps him start a horror story with a plan to bring the horrible creature Kade created into the real world to torment Heath and his friends. When Kade’s creation no longer wishes to do Raven’s bidding, it becomes a life or death fight. The only way to survive is to figure out how to finish off the creature before she finds freedom. Will Kade discover a way to stop the creation of his malevolent mind? Or will Raven’s revenge consume them all?


img_0209 Misty Harvey loves writing spine-tingling horror novels sure to thrill readers. The psychology behind such tales has always been a fascination for her since she was young, to the point that she once contemplated taking up psychology as a profession. Still, her love resides in the art of storytelling

Her favorite things to do when not writing are crafts, wrestling with her dog, avoiding her cat’s bite, and generally making her husband and daughter crazy. Oftentimes she can be found creating vivid tales with her daughter about whatever mundane thing happened in their day and turning it into a crazy story. She is also an avid gamer, crochet goddess (we shall pretend there), domestic queen, and animal tamer (it’s a work in progress).

Erukkass’ people, a species of interdimensional aliens, have been observing Earth and interacting with humans for so many centuries that some Native American tribes believe their ancestors originated from the stars. After his lover passed away in what appears to be a medical accident, Erukkass accepts a scientific mission… but not for the reasons his government expects. He has located his beloved on another timeline, in another universe—ours—and he will not leave without him.

Jon, a psychic since childhood, has never felt at home in the world, even less so after his lover died on Winter Solstice a year ago. Since his abilities failed him when he needed them most, he turns to alcohol and rejects his family’s assertion that he is a Star Child—an alien/human hybrid. When Jon’s sister suggests he should look into the legend of Handsome Fellow, Jon decides that if he cannot find happiness himself, he will bring it to others.

Jon returns home from work one evening to find a gift of his own—a strange young man waiting for him. Erukkass unveils one stunning revelation after another, including the truth behind his lover’s death and the nature of time itself. Can he and Jon forge a future together, or will two timelines that have always intersected, no matter when or where, finally be forced to diverge?

#LifeBooksWriting Blog Challenge: My Bookshelf/Latest Reads

Published May 13, 2016 by Jennifer Loring

Like many if not most writers, I have a book addiction. Rare is the day I can walk into a bookstore and walk out empty-handed. I’ve bought twenty in the last three weeks alone (OK–three of those were for my husband and one purchase was a five-book set). As I mentioned in my previous post, my office doubles as a library because I so love being surrounded by books.

I started off the week by finishing Michael Lesy’s Wisconsin Death Trip. I love non-fiction; this book, a chronicle of Midwestern life’s brutal reality at the turn of the century and told through newspaper clippings and photos, is a treasure trove of mini-horror stories.

I followed up by reading Clive Barker‘s The Hellbound Heart which is, of course, the basis for Hellraiser. Clive Barker has been one of my biggest influences since I first read The Books of Blood as a teenager, and I always enjoy returning to the writers who inspired me to become one myself.

Having completed that, I decided finally to commit to a series I’ve been wanting to read for quite some time now: J. R. Ward‘s Black Dagger Brotherhood. Thus I am currently reading Dark Lover which, a quarter of the way in, is already making me eager to tackle the rest of the series. (I’ve also got a paranormal romance on tap for next year, so this counts as research!)

What are you reading?

A Culture Addicted to FREE—How FREE is Poisoning the Internet & Killing the Creatives

Published February 10, 2016 by Jennifer Loring

Exposure used to be the treatment/cure, but the world has evolved to be exposure-resistent. Exposure is like tossing regular penicillin at flesh-eating MRSA and expecting it to work.

Critical Hit-On by Deanna Dee–Out Now!

Published February 25, 2015 by Jennifer Loring

Critical Hit-On ebook Critical Hit-On (The Games of Love, #1)
By Deanna Dee
Genre: new adult geek romance
Length: 216 pages

Roll for attraction.

Molly Moreau used to be a geek with the best of them—role playing games, multi-user dungeons, trading cards—the works. Then she found her long-time boyfriend in a dark corner with a girl dressed as Lara “boobs and guns” Croft. That was it for the relationship and for her geekiness. After moving back home, she got a job at a normal bar and
grill with normal people to live a normal life. That is until Craig shows up with his RPG character sheet.

Craig Lawrence has been rolling 1s on the relationship front ever since his last girlfriend broke up with him because he apparently spent too much time playing guardian to his rebellious little sister. When he meets Molly, he wants more than anything to win her heart, and this time he’ll do anything to keep his family problems from interfering.

When fate (Molly’s best friend) brings Craig and Molly together (sets them up on a date), will this relationship roll yet another 1? Or will it score a critical hit?

Available on Amazon

Excerpt
Chapter 1: Craig
For a Thursday night, A’s Tavern is dead. All the better. We don’t need an audience for the not-so-drunken debauchery to follow. I stroll inside and head for the hostess desk, not bothering to hold the door for Parker. He’s a big boy. He can handle himself.
There’s a crash behind me, followed by a string of curses.
Or maybe he can’t. Should’ve known better. Parker’s a klutz. I’m a good friend, though. I keep walking and snicker.
Parker catches up to me and punches my shoulder. “You, my friend, are chimera excrement.”
I shrug. “I’ve been called worse. Keep up next time.”
“Two?” The host, clad in black pants and a red shirt—poor bastard—greets us and grabs a couple of menus.
“For now,” I say. “We’re expecting three more.”
Host pauses, and his eyes go glassy as if two plus three is calculus. Then he grabs three more menus. “Follow me.” He leads us to a rectangular table for six, where he practically drops the menus and silverware. Dude’s dex score is down with his int. “Your server will be right with you,” he says and then scurries back toward the front of the restaurant.
I mumble a thanks and sit. The tables around us are empty, so I pull my chair way out and make myself comfortable. In my twenty-one years, A’s hasn’t changed. The place looks like one of those old train stations. The top halves of the walls are white tile, and the bottoms are dark wood, a match for the tables and chairs. Monochrome tiles make up the floor, and a black-lacquered bar stretches the length of the restaurant. In honor of the recent Star Trek movie, there’s a neon sign over said bar advertising Free Tranya. I don’t know why they have free tranya, considering that line was from the original series and not the most recent movie, but there’s the sign. Only the second r is out. So
it reads Free Tanya.
“Free Tanya.” Parker sits across from me and runs a hand over his black hair, which just makes it stick up more. Between that and the glasses, all he needs is green eyes instead of blue and a lightning scar on his forehead. “Now that, I can get behind.” And a less Weasley personality.
I scoot up to the table and am about to smack him over the head when a hand grabs my water glass and scares the hell out of me. I hit the back of my chair and look up at our waitress…our really hot waitress. Damn, how have I not noticed this girl before? Her brown hair reaches her shoulders, and her curves make the tasteless white-shirt-and-black-skirt ensemble of A’s uniform look good. My kind of girl.
“How you boys doing tonight?” she says in a strong, confident voice.
Definitely my kind of girl.
“Magnificently,” Parker says.
“Yeah?” She replaces my water glass and goes for Parker’s. “What can I get you to drink?”
Parker points to the bar. “I shall have the free Tanya.”
I kick him under the table.
He squeaks like a little girl. “Tranya.”
Waitress nods as if dorky twenty-something guys order free females all the time. “And you?” She turns to me, and her brown eyes meet mine. They’re the kind of eyes dead white guys wrote poetry about.
I’ll be a dead white guy someday. Perhaps I should join their ranks. Or perhaps I should order a drink before she notices I’m staring. “Have you had the tranya?”
“I have. I relished it.”
Whoa, girl knows her Star Trek. She and I might be the only twenty-somethings in 2009 America to know that episode. That decides my drink order. “As much as I will.”
Her eyes go wide, reflecting my amazement. Then, without warning, they’re serious again. “Two tranyas. Can I see some ID?” She barely glances at the cards before handing them back. “I’ll have those right out, and my name’s Molly.” She dashes toward the bar.
Well, so much for that.
“Critical miss,” Parker says, patting my arm. “Better luck next time.”
