Publication date: March 11th 2018

I don’t believe in fairy tales and I don’t waste time wishing for one. I learned long ago that luck smiles on the—well, lucky—and that the rest of us can just go to hell. So when my boyfriend ran off and left me with a bunch of debt, I knew better than to wish for a miracle. But then one came my way, in the form of four—count ’em four—hot, sexy men. But as luck would have it—or wouldn’t have it, in my case—I couldn’t have a single one of them.

Q&A with Alison Mello, Author Shattered Souls

Shattered Souls iconWhat inspired you to write Shattered Souls?

This book is so special to me. I wrote this book not only because I’m former military myself but with all the military romance books I’ve written it’s always the male character that serves. There are so many women out there serving our country with pride and doing an amazing job at it. I felt it was time they get the credit they deserve. Shattered Souls is book one in the To Love and Serve series. I’m working on releasing book two later this year so stay tuned for more on that.

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Shattered Souls?

Lexi is a medically discharged combat medic. She comes home after discharge and plays it cool trying to lead everyone to believe she’s okay and that she’s just letting loose a little but in reality she’s struggling big time.

Keegan is a Boston cop who totally understands what she’s going through because he’s been injured himself and lost his partner in the line of duty.

They both have difficult pasts that they need to move on from. They find healthy coping mechanisms and when they do their chemistry only intensifies. This book has all the feels, it’ll make you laugh, cry and wish you had Keegan in your bed with you.

How do you find time to write as a parent?

I am an incredibly blessed author. My husband works a job that has allowed me to be a stay at home mom for the last six years. That said my son is now in school full time and so I work during the day while they are out of the house and I work my takeovers and my evening schedule around my son, but that’s not always easy considering he is [has] Tae Kwon Do three to four nights a week. LOL.

What are you passionate about these days?

I’m very passionate about supporting our veterans. My husband served his country for twenty-nine years. I feel there is not one person in any branch of service who doesn’t suffer from one thing or another after that many years in.

I’ve done an auction to benefit veterans over the last two years. My auctions now go to benefit VetSports and throughout the year I give all the proceeds from my apparel sales at to that organization. Last year we raised over [$]4000.00 for the organization.

JR Mabry on why he doesn’t do backstories

JR Mabry THe KingdomDo your characters have any backstories?

You know, I really resisted doing that at first. I don’t know why. Mostly, I think, because I was afraid it would get away from me and I’d end up with another enormous book on my hands! I mean, really, every Blackfriars book has been longer than the one before. The Kingdom is about 450 pages, while The Glory is 720! Crazy.

I didn’t want to get derailed from the projects I’d been working on by a short story that was going to take on a life of its own and hijack everything! They really do have minds of their own, these characters and stories, you know.

But while putting together the relaunch of The Kingdom and The Power, and as I was getting The Glory ready for its debut, a few short ideas came to me. The first was a really fun stand-alone adventure for Kat that I called “The Demon Bunny of Ipswich.”

In it, Kat is sent off into the California central valley, to some podunk town, and she really, really doesn’t want to go. I mean, I love Kat, she’s one of my favorite characters, but she scared me a little in this story because she’s so pissed off!

So she gets there, and there’s this possessed rabbit, who seems to take whatever anyone around it is feeling and amplifying it. And since Kat is pissed… Well, I’m not going to tell you any more about that. It’s funny and touching and magick—everything you want in a Blackfriars story, except that it’s really short!

Another short story is “Susan Gets a Job.” Susan, as Blackfriars fans know, is Father Dylan’s wife, and she is kind of a force of nature. No one wants to get on Susan’s bad side. She’s a big girl who doesn’t mind throwing her weight around. She’s also really smart and she’s usually right.

So, Susan goes to this local church to apply for the job of church secretary, and she has an interview with the pastor. And the interview does not go well. That is, until someone busts in and tries to kill the pastor. Nobody pulls shit like that on Susan’s watch. Does she get the job? It’s a damn good bet. Continue reading

About the Author Erin Lockwood author

Erin Lockwood grew up in Castro Valley, California and attended the University of Oregon, where she graduated in 2003 with a degree in journalism. From there she moved to Denver and spent the next seven years searching for the love of her life and building the family of her dreams.

It wasn’t long until, with children starting preschool and more time on her hands, Erin refocused on her career, beginning with a successful entry into the world of residential real estate as a Realtor. Free time was spent reading book after book (and binge-watching the subsequent films) in the New Adult genre. Feeling hopelessly in love with her husband, she wrote him a short story leading up to their fifth wedding anniversary. That’s when she discovered her tireless passion to share her experience of falling in love through fictional characters. That story evolved into the first novel in the Angles trilogy.

Erin still lives in Denver, Colorado with her husband, Phil, and their three children.

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Rom-Com


All I ever wanted is happening this weekend.

Or at least it might happen. If I don’t screw it up. A lot can go wrong when you are sneaking around a Las Vegas hotel between a poker tournament and a romance writer’s convention. And secretly attending both. More can go wrong when the one man you ever really wanted is there too, and he’s watching. He’s like a spy on a mission, always trying to keep me out of trouble.

He saved me once from drowning. He’s my brother’s best friend and I’ve wanted him since I was old enough to know what that means. But for him I’ve been off limits, the stakes were too high.

How could I resist making him the hero of my book? How will he react when he finds out?

Warning: This book contains awkward situations, fan-girling, laughter, heat, and love!

**Only .99 cents!!** Continue reading
