Cover Reveal: Persephone, sweet paranormal fantasy by Phoenix Johnson

From the Bestselling Author who brought you the Award Winning Paranormal Romance Once Bitten, Twice Shy (Wolf Smitten book 2) comes a new Fantasy Paranormal Romance!

Author Phoenix Johnson is thrilled to introduce her next title, Persephone!
The beautiful cover, by the talented and lovely Fiona Jayde!

In this sweet fantasy, Persephone must overcome her abusive past and the alluring call of the Darkness to discover her destiny and the truth about her heritage. 

To be released August 1, 2015, Persephone is the sweeter side of fantasy, much like the books Phoenix grew up reading. She thoroughly enjoyed writing this delightful tale, and sincerely hopes that those who purchase and read Persephone get as much satisfaction from it as she did. 


Blurb:

Persephone takes her future and heart into her own hands when she meets a mysterious man on a sweet summer day. However, when tragedy strikes, Adrian begs her to follow one request: head to the sea. Determined to honor his request, she begins a journey where she discovers her true heritage and family. The problem is, a dangerous past is nipping at her heels every step of the way. Will she make it to the sea and find her destiny? Or will she lose everything she fought so hard to find?

About the Author

Phoenix Johnson has always been intrigued by the written word. Even when she was a young girl, she usually had her nose stuck in at least one book, and her need to read would drive her to peruse the back of the same cereal box each morning at breakfast. 
Paranormal and fantasy captured her heart, with tales about dragons, magic, and fanciful creatures sweeping her away to a wonderful new world where she felt she truly belonged. While she dabbled in writing while in primary school, it wasn’t until high school that she decided she should try her hand at writing her own book, and even gave poetry a try. 
She wandered away from writing for a few years, but was soon encouraged to return and, within months of picking up the proverbial pen, Phoenix’ first story, The Wolf In The Neighborhood, was accepted for publication by Naughty Nights Press. While working on the rest of the Wolf Smitten Trilogy, Phoenix decided to take on a university degree, and is now in the final stretch of her Bachelor of Art’s degree in Professional Writing and Publishing, with plans to continue on to her Master’s degree. 
In early 2015, Phoenix was thrilled to discover she’d made two Top 5 lists with three entries in the 2015 Easychair Bookshop Awards. In June, it was announced she had placed first in Best Paranormal with Once Bitten, Twice Shy, the second installment in her Wolf Smitten Trilogy, while The Wolf In The Neighborhood and Wolf Smitten placed third in their respective categories of Best Paranormal and Best Series. With her inclusion in the Alphas on the Prowl Box Set in 2015, Phoenix hit the top 100 bestsellers lists across numerous distributors, number 1 bestseller on several Amazon lists, and this was quickly followed by the announcement of her achievement of number 1 bestseller for her publisher, Naughty Nights Press, for the full second quarter of 2015. The awards and achievements have only served to strengthen her ambitions, and she is now aiming at reaching the bestseller lists for USA Today and New York Times. 
Phoenix has been working hard to make 2015 her year, and has been busy organizing paranormal anthology Twisted Tales with seven other authors. Its release at the end of June is greatly anticipated, and she is extremely excited to see where her writing career takes her next.

Protect yourself from anyone seeing who you may be friends with on Facebook (prying eyes like Amazon)!

It's been suggested, and voted plausible, that Amazon may be using a setting or application that uses the Facebook links provided on your Amazon Author page to scan your Facebook friends list and determine their decision on "you know this author personally" when allowing/disallowing reviews from your readers.

Does anyone really need to see your friends list anyway? No!
Of course, we can all sign the petition asking Amazon to change this policy (and it's doubtful they will), but, in the meantime, why not make it more difficult for them to use your friendships/followers against you, right?

How to lock down your friends list: 
This must be done from a computer or the "desktop site" setting on your mobile device.
If you're unsure if your friends list is currently view able, check it out on step 2 first. 

Step 1: First go to your timeline and click friends (see photo below) and enter in "to edit" section and "manage" your friends as per your conditions. (I set mine to friends for all the options here)

Step 2: Go to settings, click on "timeline and tagging", "view as", click on your "friends" tab, and see if it shows your friends/followers. If it's locked down it should say "no friends to show."


Step 3: Rejoice knowing you may have just saved yourself from getting one of those notices from Amazon refusing your review! Either way, your list of friends is now safe from prying eyes. This is good.

And still the hate continues

And still the hate continues

I'd like you to take a look at the woman in the picture below, if you would.
You won't know her but her name is India Clarke, and she became at least the 11th Trans woman to be murdered in the US in 2015.


INDIA CLARKE

The other woman also murdered were: Papi Edwards 20 years old, Lamia Beard (30), Ty Underwood(24), Yasmin Vash Payne (33), Taja deJesus (36), Penny Proud (21), Kristina Grant Infiniti (46), Mya Hall (27), London Kiki Chanel (21) and Mercedes Williamdson (17).


I don't care who you are, or what you think of transgendered women, but to be murdered just because of your gender in the year 2015 is sickening, and a total disgrace to the human race.
I know I keep going on about transsexuals, my daughter even asked me today if I was attracted to them because of the way I bang on about them, and their hopes for the future but if this sort of evil didn't keep happening I wouldn't need to but as it is, worldwide, one transgender person is murdered every three days.
The list does not include deaths by suicide, accident, and other causes.
So this month I am begging you all to take just a minute out of your hectic lives, and fall silent, for all victims of Transphobic hate.

Thank you.

Unusual Words That Describe The Familiar


Elizabeth Black writes in a wide variety of genres including erotica, erotic romance, and dark fiction. She lives on the Massachusetts coast with her husband, son, and three cats. Visit her web site, her Facebook page, and her Amazon Author Page.

-----

Everyone is familiar with schadenfreude. That's the German expression for taking joy in someone else's misery. There are plenty of words that describe something  you might have thought was impossible to describe in only one word. Here are a few examples you may want to use in your fiction.

Pluviophile – see above image. (n) a lover of rain. I am a pluviophile. I also love thunderstorms. There's something electrifying about pounding rain with lightning and thunder. It makes me feel all warm and primal inside.

Gufra – (n) the amount of water that can be held in the hands.

Baku-Shan – (n) a pretty girl viewed from behind.

Schlimazl – I've heard of this one. I believe it's Yiddish. It's up there with "schlemiel". (n) – a chronically unlucky person.

Duende – (n) the power a piece of art has to deeply move the person viewing it.

Kyoikumama – (n) a tiger mother. One of those Asian mothers who pushes her children towards achievement to the point its practically psychotic. I had no idea there was an actual term for this.

Torchlusspanik – (n) the fear that opportunities vanish as one ages.

Tingo – You may have neighbors who have done this to you. Think of how Homer treats Flanders in "The Simpsons". (n) The act of taking objects from the house of a friend by gradually borrowing all of them and never returning them.

There are many more examples you may find all over the web. I find language fascinating, especially when one word can so vividly describe a sensation, an action, or an object.

Free
from July 2nd-July 4th inclusive

for the US celebration of Independence Day




To celebrate the 239th birthday of American Independence, and the one week anniversary of a ruling which should have made made at least 239 years ago I am pleased to announce that, for three days only, from July 2nd until July 4th inclusive Naughty Hot Shots: Reunited at a reunion is available for FREE from Amazon.

That's right you read that correctly TOTALLY FREE, just like LGBT couples all over the country are now free to marry, in whichever of the great states of the U.S.A. they wish to do so.



Going to a college reunion, Victor Pierce, a self-made businessman, is looking forward to seeing how his fellow classmates got on in life since they left. What he wasn’t expecting was to run into Ian Kraemer, the male he lost his virginity to and the very man he had thought about almost every day since they lost contact.

What happens when the two men meet? Can they find what they once had? Or has their passion for each other long gone?



Also I'd like to remind everyone. If you are already a member of/subscriber to Kindle Unlimited this book is FREE to read, anytime and anywhere.

A public service announcement



Set free once again I am bringing, possibly, the most important post I ever made in The Crypt. So, yes, most of you will have read this but a lot of people won't and to me what I hope to achieve means so much to me I feel a further airing is needed.

So here it is, Ladies and Gentlemen, the BIG announcement I have been promising! 
As all of you who have followed me since my arrival on the erotic romance scene know, I am one hundred percent committed to doing anything I can to help get Transsexuals recognized as equals in society. However, until I had this idea, words of support were all I had. Not any more!
Currently, I have four erotic romance books based around transsexuals and transsexual romance available for purchase and my idea is quite simple.
From this day forward, ALL my royalties earned from the sales of any of the four books advertised on this post will be donated to various charities supporting all those affected by gender identity issues.
