MM Jaye

MM Jaye offers an interesting concept to her Aegean Lovers series of romance novels … All eBooks will be published in “Clean” and “Spicy” versions.

MM JayeMM Jaye Maria Messini, but I pen under MM Jaye

What is your latest release and what genre is it? Fate Accompli is the first book in the Aegean Lovers Series, a contemporary romance in a Greek island setting.

Quick description: Fate Accompli is a character-driven story of how, even though two people are clearly meant to be together, a faulty self-image on the heroine’s part and deeply ingrained yet warped perceptions on the hero’s part drive them apart. But Fate has other plans. Monica and Alex share a passionate relationship, but as the storyline is a lot stronger than their intimate moments, I created both a Clean version (without the bedroom scenes) and a Spicy one to appeal to all types of romance readers.

Brief biography:
MM Jaye is the pen name of Maria Messini, a bilingual Greek native. She is a certified translator and has been teaching the art of translation for over fifteen years. Writing was Maria’s idea of therapy when, back in 2009, her spirits had temporarily nosedived. Fate Accompli is her debut contemporary romance, the first book in the Aegean Lovers Series, available in two heat versions: Clean & Spicy. She lives in Athens, Greece with her husband, daughter and Kindle.

MM Jaye also very graciously hosted me in an interview on her site, MMJaye Writes.

What are you working on now?
Fate Captured. This is a prequel to Fate Accompli, and it will be a novella. Again, I’ll create a Clean and a Spicy version, although Trish and Markos have turned out to be too naughty! Hopefully, it will be out early summer 2015.

MM Jaye’s reading recommendation:
It so happens that I’ve just finished reading Nicholas Rossis’ children’s book entitled Runaway Smile. I tried it out of curiosity. How can an epic fantasy author deal with material addressed to children? Apparently this author can. The book is heartwarming and its sweet message (an unshared smile is a wasted smile) conveyed masterfully. You can read Runaway Smile for free here. (Nicholas has also been featured on Reading Recommendations and recently recommended the writing of another author.

What is your latest release and what genre is it? September Again is the newest release, launched April 15, 2014. It is a dramatic, contemporary coming of age story with a blend of romance and poetry.

Quick description: According to Cherokee beliefs, opportunity will bless you twice.
September Again, second in the series, September Stories, is the follow up to the hugely popular indie sensation, September Ends. September Again finds Liz Snow Savage leaving England. She follows her daughter Zelda Savage back to America after Zelda’s betrayal of her. More drama ensues as Liz looks for meaning in life while Zelda finds her direction after the tragedy of losing Jack O. Savage, The Poet. Set mainly in Chattanooga, Tennessee, September Again chronicles the rhythm of life’s cycles. The ebb and flow of love unravel the mystery of Liz’s past. September Again allows a further glimpse into the intricate web of passion and desire which have entangled Liz Snow, Pete Hendrix and Jack O. Savage for years. Will a chance encounter finally reveal the truth? What act will change the destiny of Liz and Zelda forever? The story of sin, salvation and redemption continues in Book 2 of the September Stories, told through a mosaic of prose with a smattering of poetry.

Magic happens when you least expect it.

Sept Again Lg

Brief biography:
Writer. Exile on Peachtree Street. Lover of all the finer things in life.

The art form I create when writing is much more interesting than anything you will ever know or learn about me. However, since you ask, I have lived in Tennessee and Georgia my entire life, except for one “lost summer” spent in Los Angeles. My first published stories were for a local underground rock publication in Nashville. Since then, I have published articles on music, fashion, art, travel and history.

October 2013 saw the launch of a novel collaboration, September Ends, contemporary fiction laced with romance, erotic and supernatural elements, bound by poetry. This novel is written with an anonymous English poet. September Ends has been labeled an “Indie Sensation” due the critical reception and international recognition the novel has received. The book has been downloaded in every Amazon domain on the planet. It has achieved #1 status on Amazon for World Literature, #1 in British Poetry and #1 in Contemporary Poetry.

The first installment of The Fortune Series, Fortune Calling, released in January 2014, is the story of Dallas Fortune, a musician from Nashville who has been dealt a bad hand by fate, but finds her way. It has been #1 on Amazon in Contemporary Fiction featuring Performing Arts and #1 in Contemporary Short Stories.

Look for the next September story, September Again, released on Amazon on April 15, 2014.

What are you working on now?
Right now? Right now I’m working on a blog for the upcoming Art Rocks Athens GA event which will celebrate the art that shaped the music of Athens GA in the 1970s-1980s.

Hunter’s reading recommendation:
Recently I’ve been enjoying MODS: The New Religion by Paul Anderson, released by Omnibus Press. It’s the story of the Mods from the 1960s – their music, fashion. Fantastic read. I discovered it in London at the London Book Fair. I highly recommend it.

Thank you very much for featuring me today!

MASTERED is much more than just SEX

While it MASTERFULLY depicts the mind-blowing PHYSICAL ‘mechanics’ of a BDSM relationship, it also boldly delves into the PSYCHOLOGY behind it.

The reader comes away not only deeply SATISFIED – but with a basic understanding as well.

Mastered has received reviews from grown men stating that this book has made them look at sexuality from a whole new perspective!

Finally, it is kicked up another notch with an intriguing sub-plot, 3-D characters – and a scathing commentary on society’s intolerance.

IT IS SEXY, KINKY, INTELLIGENT EROTICA!

Please READ, LOVE – and SHARE will ALL your friends, neighbors – COUNTRYMEN!!

Ps… ALL books are available directly from my website – and – in ALL FORMATS (Kindle, ePub)…

What is your latest release and what genre is it? The Fourth Bride – Gothic horror and romance

Quick description: The Fourth Bride is the fourth novel in The Blackstone Vampires Series. After the tragic and sudden death of her groom, Dia, cursed by Dracula as a babe, is taken to his castle. Once there she is seduced and turned by the count and becomes his fourth bride. The other brides are to be her sisters. All are to love and feed upon one another.
As her master says: “The joy is in the blood…the passion is in the blood…endless life is in the blood…!”
Dia’s tale is full of erotic sex and graphic violence. It is a tale of love and lust but mostly of blood for the blood is everything

The Fourth Bridex

Brief biography:
I’ve always written but life, as it often does, got in the way and I turned back to writing some years ago. In 2000 I was selected by North West Playwrights of England for further development but found I preferred writing fiction (novels and short stories).

Recently I signed with Creativia and they are republishing my books. There are four books in The Blackstone Vampires Series:
The House on Blackstone Moor, Book 1
Unholy Testament – The Beginnings, Book 2
Unholy Testament – Full Circle, Book 3
The Fourth Bride, Book 4

I enjoy writing short stories and am widely published in horror and sci-fi anthologies.

What are you working on now?
I’ve begun a brand new series. There are two characters that appear in The Fourth Bride that feature in the series. I write historically based horror and this series will be expansive. It will take the reader from Ancient Egypt to the French Revolution on to vampire clubs in Paris and beyond. There are to be three novels in the series. I am well into the first.

Carole’s reading recommendation:
I love Anne Rice’s work. She is my icon. Her fiction deserves to be called Gothic. She redefined vampires and made them interesting three dimensional characters, not a bunch of crazed blood sucking monsters. I love Interview with the Vampire. I particularly found the vampire child, Claudia, to be the most haunting character I ever read about.

What is your latest release and what genre is it? Take Me – Romantic Erotica (heavy on the erotica)

Quick description: Take Me is the third of four short stories. BOUND together, they create the novel – MASTERED (to be released shortly, along with the final short story). It is the erotic love story of Missy Weaver and James Colton. The sub-genre is D/s – a multi-layered plot with multi-layered characters. In just under 3 months, it has accrued over 40 Amazon reviews – 37 of them 5 star.

Take Me by K.L. Silver.indd

Brief biography:
I have been writing for years, but went ‘public’ about 3 years ago when I started writing for several sites. I am not what anyone would call a mainstream thinker – even on mainstream topics, and found the venues a tad cramped.

It was time to strike out on my own and I started to blog. I also decided it was high time to listen to my fans – and write a book. What they didn’t know was the genre I would choose, and many were surprised. On the other hand, many weren’t.

I’m very excited. The future seems bright!

What are you working on now?
Well, at the moment, I am in edits on the fourth short story AND the novel. I believe my readers will be very, ummmm … SATISFIED (ahem…).

(On April 14, 2014, K.L. Silver updated Reading Recommendations on the release of her novels.)

K.L. Silver’s reading recommendation:
I highly recommend new Poet Vincent Moore and not so new Poet Baron James Ashanti.
