Happily married and mother of four. We have two daughters and two sons. Both my sons have special needs since they are Autistic. I have a degree in Nursing, but have been a stay at home mom for the past 8 years. I have a few hobbies such as gardening and rescuing exotic pets. We have so many I could probably charge admission to our small petting zoo. But I have to say my absolute passion is reading. So after spending so much time at home, I decided to make a career out of sharing my love for books. Writing and promoting has become a full time job for me now. There are so many unknown authors out there that deserve to have their books read by many. So after promoting for authors for two years, I decided to follow my dreams and start writing my own books. I started writing poetry when I was just a little girl and have always loved the feeling it gave me. Currently I am working on a New Adult Contemporary Romance, but later I plan to write other genres. Hope you will join me in all the fun ahead.

By day, Joni Hahn keeps her secret decoder ring hidden while she works as a mild-mannered HR manager and accounting generalist. She believes the world can never have too many superheroes, and anxiously waits for the call when one will need help saving the world… or getting into his costume. Joni was born with a hopelessly tender heart and believes there is nothing on earth more exhilarating than falling in love (Other than the rear shot of Chris Evans in The Avengers when he’s hitting the punching bag in the gym - that was pretty darn exhilarating). A native Texan, she thinks cowboys are the epitome of masculinity, and that country is the other soul music.
And in a bold move at age 50, Cynthia also appeared on the cover of the book with him, hoping to inspire other 'middle aged mommas' to reach for a star, believe in themselves and know their own beauty inside and out at ANY age. Her books are stories of fantasy, adventure, time travel and take the reader to another place and time, and there is always a heavy sprinkling of spiritual growth that comes from a deep and abiding love and destiny of two people that finds its way across time, distances and even galaxies.

Alan T. McKean was born and educated in Glasgow, Scotland and worked in various mind-numbing occupations before the Lord called him into the ministry. He celebrated 30 years of serving God with the publication of his first novel, The Scent of Time, published by Black Rose Writing in Texas. The Scent of Home, a sequel, has also been released. Both are time-travel adventure stories.
Alan is married to author Stephanie Parker McKean. The couple lives in Scotland where they share their home with rough collie Angel Joy.During his free time, Alan enjoys art, history (especially American), music and photography, travel, walking, and exploring Scotland’s many castles and majestic scenery.
Few readers will care that I was born in Texas, but they might like to know that I can’t sing.
I can’t do math either, but that’s my fault. I never did my math homework in school. Now I’ve circumvented the need to use math by marrying my wonderful Scottish husband, Alan McKean, a minister and best-selling author. He does the math.
Had I been able to sing, you wouldn’t be reading this. I planned on becoming the next “Julie Andrews.” Instead, I write. I have 150 rejection slips to prove the years and effort. Never give up on your dreams.
From the time I sold my first newspaper article as a kid, all I’ve ever wanted to do is write books. Like Isaiah in the Bible, writing is a fire within my bones. It spills out in words. I sit down at the computer to make a few notes for a future book and stop on Chapter Four. My classmates hated me in school. When a writing assignment was announced, they would groan. I’d smile as brightly as if someone had handed me gold. They had. Writing is my gold.
My Christian mystery-romance-suspense books include Heart Shadows, Until the Shadows Flee, Shadow Chase, and the Sunpenny Publication, Bridge to Nowhere. My newest release is a Christian young adult-adult adventure romance with a pro-life message, Love’s Beating Heart.So if there’s something in life that you can’t do, focus on what you can do. Accept the gift God has given you. As for math, I thought about going back to school. But marrying Alan was so much better. It gives me more time to write!

My name is Mary Moriarty, author of The Kings of Angkor: Army of a Thousand Elephants, One Thousand Years to Forever: The Making of a Queen, and my newest book, I’ve Been Waiting for You. The Kings of Angkor: Army of a Thousand Elephants is labeled Historical Fiction but it really crosses a couple genres. It starts present day, goes back in time to the time of Suryavaman II and ends... Well, I can't tell you that, you will just have to read the book.
How does a woman who grew up in NH, spent her summers in Camden, Maine where I now live, write or know anything about Cambodia? I lived there for approximately 11 years. When I went there in the first week in February of 1996, it was not the most settled country. I was fortunate enough to live down on the coast in Kampot Town of Kampot Province. In between Kampot and Phnom Penh was four hours of basic "no man's land" which had to be traveled to reach the capital. If you wanted to go to Phnom Penh, you left with a convoy and came back the same way. Living in Cambodia gave me a greater, deeper appreciation for my own country. I have been writing all my life, well ever since going to school. It runs in my mother's family.
What am I working on right now? I have Redemption at Midnight with Land of the Golden Towers on the back burner. I love to write and find it makes my days better if I am working on my writing projects.
So find me on Facebook under Mary Moriarty Romance Author and find my books on Amazon. You will be happy you did.

Called a "deft new writer of intelligent romantic fiction," award-winning author Dorothy Wiley enjoys writing big, action-packed romantic adventures set in the American wilderness when it was still a frontier. In her exciting new American Wilderness Series Romances, Wiley breaches the walls of time, bringing readers to a young America, where romance and danger are as powerful as the wilderness. Readers describe her writing as fresh, unblinkingly gritty, and highly enjoyable with well portrayed characters. Like Wiley's compelling heroes, who from the outset make it clear they will not fail despite the adversities they face, Wiley is likewise destined for success.
Her debut historical romance WILDERNESS TRAIL OF LOVE was a 2014 Florida Romance Writers Touch of Magic Contest Finalist. According to one contest judge, "This work has that memorable feel I associate with big historicals (i.e. Lonesome Dove)."
Wiley's second book NEW FRONTIER OF LOVE was a 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest Quarter-Finalist. Described by an Amazon reviewer as, “fresh, unblinkingly gritty, and highly readable, her romance novel reads like a classic American adventure story.”

Hi, my name is Anya Kelleye.
I have been creating book covers since 2010. I design covers for eBooks and print books. I also design website banners and cover photos/banners for Facebook.
I love the creating process and learning more and more every day. I try not to price my designs so high that new indie authors can't afford to have a nice cover for their books. Indie authors are a growing part of the book community and I want to help them be able to achieve their dreams. I really enjoy working with authors to get the book covers that best portray their work.

I've been a model for almost 3 years now and I have recently found one of my callings. Book covers give me the freedom to bring all my emotive acting into still life imagery and I love it. I've been rampaging through Hollywood shooting with some top photographers and creating some amazing art. If there is something I can't do, I like to learn how. Book covers are so much fun because they push the boundaries of reality and take you through time.
I have been an image model for dozens of apparel brands over the years along with appearing in television documentaries, commercials, art gallery print work and having my likeness used on children’s literature book covers.

I am the most tattooed male romance cover model in the world and am starring in Jillian Bullock’s 2014 film, ‘A Sense of Purpose: Fighting for Our Lives’ which begins filming in June, 2014.
Any authors and writers that would like to meet me, I will be in New Orleans for the Romantic Times Convention May 13 – May 18, 2014.

With over 2,500 professional book reviews under my belt and rising weekly, I'm not sure where to begin. Obviously, I love to read! I juggled a double major in both English Education and Dance in college (English Ed. to land a job, Dance for the pure joy of it!) From there, I've worked in both fields consistently to the present.
While working in this industry I've had the wonderful opportunity of meeting and interviewing some of publishing's most famous (and fun) authors and celebrities. Since the biggest complaint people had about me while growing up was that I ask way too many questions, this career has been the perfect fit. I LOVE people (one has to work very hard for me not to like them)! The past few years, however, I have become increasingly aware of the very talented authors that are not afforded media exposure simply because they choose to self or small publish rather than accept the strictures of mainstream publishing. Thus, the idea of "InD'Tale" magazine was born!
Through more hard work than I thought possible and more love and support than I thought imaginable, InD'Tale is quickly becoming the magazine of choice by thousands of people who want to learn, be entertained and discover new and interesting books in the indie and self published field.Along with making "InD'Tale" the very best magazine of its kind, I still make time to teach private music lessons. Music (all kinds) is a passion I will always indulge in no matter where life takes me. I am also passionate about traveling, learning, and enjoying new experiences. I'm continuing an on-going bucket list of visiting a new and interesting place in the world at least once a year.
Hello my name is Kimi Court; I am single, 45 and write poetry. Usually only for myself. From time to time I will post them on my FB page or my Blog, but not all of them. Some will always be too personal to post.
I love to read. I have read so many books in such a short amount of time that I decided to create a blog. I interview Authors, any and all authors. If they want to do an interview I will do it. I believe that they are doing me a service and so I am always grateful when they say yes. I love to see what they have to say. Remember if you want to know about something or someone, others do too. Go online and find some basic questions. Go through them and decided which you want to use. Then later on when you became more confident, add or change some around.
I also have a page set up for reviews. Books I have read and post my thoughts of them. I am honest and will not post a review unless I read it all the way through. I also do not do favoritisms. Just because I like the author does not mean I like every single book they write. If you want to ask me to review a book, I am into Paranormal and Historical Romances and contact me to find out if have time. It changes often. I can read up to 3 books a week. Just contact me through the Contact Form on my Blog and I will let you know if I have the funds and the time. Thank You.
I live in Boston, Massachusetts. My name is Dawnmarie. I’m 33 years old. I’m a Dental Assistant and I love doing what I do. I have a great personality and I’m easy to get along with. I’m a pet lover, I have 2 cats. They are my pride and joy.
I read a lot now a days, I love paranormal, historical and erotica romance books. I am addicted to books. I review the books that I love so I started a blog called Let’s Get Romantical. I also like to dabble in cover art a bit. I have helped make some great covers.
I help some of my favorite authors with promoting their work and I enjoy doing it.
I also belong to a few of my favorite authors' Street teams on Facebook.
I am a retired mother of 3, grandmother of 6, and great-grandmother of 2. My greatest joy in my retirement is being able to read whenever I want to, for as long as I want to. I enjoy reading romance, paranormal romance, historical romance/fiction and suspense novels. Through Facebook, I have met and become friends with several authors and I have learned a great deal about the trials and tribulations of being an author, both independent and traditionally published. I try to support all the authors I read by doing reviews of their books on the major book sites. I also do beta reading for several authors and I’ve been doing proofreading for Secret Cravings Publishing for a little over a year now.
To support my favorite hobby, beading, I have a small shop on ETSY that keeps me (somewhat) out of trouble and gives me an outlet to be a little creative. I make bracelets, tribute bracelets, earrings, and necklaces; as well as beaded, themed book thongs and I am more than happy to do custom orders for any authors needing swag giveaways or gifts.I never dreamed I could do the things that I love and actually get paid for doing them but I now get paid for reading and beading. I am truly and greatly blessed.
My name is Vickie Dold, I own Innovative Online Book Tours. I have a degree in marketing and many years of experience.

Maybe you are self published? Or you desire to participate more actively in promoting your work?
Enjoy the excitement of readers experiencing your book for the first time while I do the promotion piece for you.
My name is Lisa Miller and I live in a small town in WV. I discovered a love for reading as a small child that grew in leaps and bounds as I got older. I started reviewing and promoting books to help the Indie Authors that I love!! It is a mission of love that keeps me happy and busy. I have found some fabulous friends doing this, and intend to find many more.
I am an editor and have edited From The Ashes by Danielle James and Her Dragon To Slay by Julia Mills.
Together with Kathie Noblit, we have a page on FB called The Book Pimp. It is
there that we promote the books and authors that we love. We review, post book
news, cover reveals, photo blurbs and sale links. We also do an Indie Author of the
week Spotlight, where the entire week is dedicated to that author’s work.
I also love to garden, ride horses, make jewelry, and spend time with my family.
I am Kathie Noblit and I reside in Texas. I found my love of reading as a child. Always being curious got me into a lot of trouble, and grounded to my bedroom where I came across a box full of old books. My first adventure was Black Beauty, and then The Black Stallion series. As life continued, my adventures expanded. By my teen years I was a serious bookworm and could read a Harlequin romance in a couple of hours. My Mother and I had this one thing in common, and my fondest memories of her are the books we would share and discuss. Our garage looked more like a library than a place to store the cars.
In the last couple of years, I have been blessed with this wonderful invention called the internet. Because of this, I have had the wonderful and exciting experience of actually getting to know some of the amazing minds that create the worlds I escape into.
This past August, I invested and went to the very first Romance Novel Convention in Las Vegas, hosted by Jimmy Thomas, where I actually met and chatted with these amazing people, and came home with an entirely different view of books, and an even deeper love of them.
My friend and sister of the heart, Lisa Miller, had this wonderful idea of creating a room where we could share all the books we enjoy and the brilliant authors who create them. And The Book Pimp Awesome Indie Authors was born. Due to a heavy work schedule, Lisa runs the room with a little input from me, and creates the fantastic blurbs and teasers you find in the room. She reads and reviews the books, as well as posting all the links for the great freebies. We have started a Spotlight venue and it has become a valuable resource.Our Indie authors are some of the most amazing authors a bookworm could ever dream of. And our intention is to share them with anyone and everyone, in any way we can.
