*Book Tour & Giveaway* The City That Barks and Roars by J.T. Bird-GUEST POST

The City That Barks and Roars 
by J.T. Bird 
Genre: Mystery Fiction 

Animals rule the world

They hit cafes for breakfast then nine to five at the office, and fritter away evenings at jazz clubs. 

But paradise is still a distant dream, for there are devils amongst the angels.

Lucas Panda is missing; clues on the riverbank suggest he was probably kidnapped. Enter Frank. Who else you gonna call? Hard-boiled penguin and the finest detective in town. And meet his new partner, Detective Chico Monkey - yeah, the wisecrackin' kid with all the snappy suits. But the stakes have been raised; three more creatures are missing and the citizens of Noah's Kingdom are faced with possible extinction. Can the grouchy bird and plucky young ape save the city from doom? Or, will evil prevail and escape the claws of justice?

'Animal noir' peppered with plenty of humour; this thrilling debut novel from award-winning comedian JT Bird is an intriguing blend of Jungle Book and Chinatown (Zootopia for grown-ups?! Watership Down with Fedoras!?) - perfect for fans of animal fiction, or mysteries, adventure and crime. A gripping yarn, packed with weird and wonderful creatures, for youngsters and adults alike (or anyone who's crying out for anthropomorphic detectives!!) 

J T Bird is an award-winning stand-up comedian from North London, where he lives with his wife and child. His humble abode sits neatly between the former homes of HG Wells and Robert Louis there's no pressure to write something utterly successful and wonderful.
Bird was actually 'The Chosen One' that prophets foresaw would rescue the world from all the powers of darkness - however, he opted for a career as a clown and author instead...

Another little known fact - his father was sent from the future to protect him from an android assassin, and his mother's possessed by a demon - but hey, we all have family issues right?! 


Who the heck is JT Bird ??

Can you, for those who don't know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?

I’ve actually been a stand-up comedian for the last ten years, performing primarily in London. I also run a popular comedy night for up and coming comedians!! But after a decade of trying to make drunkards giggle, I started itching for a change of scene and a fresh challenge. I decided to write a novel!! And thanks to my supportive wife, who let me hide away each night, tapping away on my laptop – I somehow managed to finish it :D

Tell us something really interesting that's happened to you!

I actually had a stroke when I was just 22 years old, during my time at university. A cerebral venus thrombosis – which does sound more like an eighties pop group!! But I have no doubt that without that experience, and a horrible month on a hospital bed, I wouldn’t have become a comedian and I certainly would not have attempted a novel. So, as terrible as it was, that ordeal did motivate me to try and achieve my dreams. Every cloud, as they say.

What are some of your pet peeves?

Ha ha – where do I start!! People who wear sunglasses on a gloomy day. Anybody who vapes while I’m walking behind them – and sprays me with raspberry fumes. People who close their eyes when they talk. Agents and publishers who scoff at anthropomorphic animal fiction…

If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?

I’d have every intention of spending that last day furiously trying to cure a disease or stop every war – but in reality, I’d probably just stay in bed surrounded by chocolate muffins– and binge on Netflix.

*Book Tour & Giveaway* Mating the Succubus by Lorien Lyn

Mating the Succubus 
Takers Book 2 
by Lorien Lyn 
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy 

Half-breed succubus Shia Hawley thrives in hunting down rogue paranormal threats as a bounty huntress. That is, until she was infected with wolf blood by an obsessive shifter. Now on a mission to find a cure, she takes matter into her own hands to bring down her enemies.

Werewolf Enforcer Jaxon Rayes is a natural defender when it comes to protecting others, including the feisty succubus. From the moment he shared a kiss with Shia, she literally took his breath away. The alluring beauty fascinates him unlike anyone, and he's determined to help and win her over.

As they spend more time together, Shia begins to rely on the shifter for more than just safety. Being close to him stirs up a wild hunger she can't seemed to contain. But as their sexual attraction grows, so does the danger surrounding them. Can Jaxon keep them both alive before their enemy attacks and her infection escalates out of control? 

Claiming the Succubus 
Takers Book 1 

Being a Succubus has its perks...until the hunter becomes the hunted.

For half-breed succubus Ava Hawley, hunting supernatural foes is worth all the risks and rewards. But when a wolf shifter is responsible for kidnapping her sister, the mission becomes personal. Ava is ordered to track down the bad boy and turn him over to her boss. That is, until she meets the dangerously sexy shifter and realizes her charm—the kiss of death—is no match for the charms of her opponent.

Alpha werewolf Killian Reid is on the run from a demon mistress, but someone else is on his tail—a stunning seductress with more sex appeal than any woman ought to have. And Killian can't resist her. Proving his innocence will be a challenge, but with every moment that he spends with her, Ava’s self- control weakens. And as their attraction grows, she knows she’ll have to rely on the shifter she'd been sent to capture, or they’ll both become victims to another predator... 

As an enthusiast of action-packed movies like John Wick and Underworld, I love exciting and engaging plots. Throw in some steamy scenes with a twist of suspense, and I’m all for it. This is where my inspiration came from with my Takers Series. Alpha heroes are my favorite, but I also really like female- led characters that are smart, fierce and imperfect.
When not writing, I’m always down to trying new foodies or out scavenging for home good deals. One thing I can't get enough of is coffee, especially during my editing phase. I love connecting with readers, so drop by my website and say hello.

Taming the Dragon Clan Book 2
by Chelsea Falin
Genre: Erotic Reverse Harem Paranormal Fantasy 

Episode II: Taking Secrets in Stride

Things get heated between Zalena, Ezra, and Damien while things get sweet (but steamy) between Zalena and Azariel. The battle for global domination and perfect world balance has started and Zalena has no idea she’s caught in the middle.

The Bad Guy:

A mage tapping into the darker half of the earth element and leader of the Jewel Clan, he was never so much evil as lost. Of all the things Azariel is willing to do, harming a woman or child isn’t one of them. He makes a point to use his resources to eradicate the world of rapists, woman abusers, and child beaters one dead man at a time.

The Good Guys:

The last dragon shifter and leader of the Dragon Clan. He refuses to love, because love, he claims, is dangerous. He claims the sweet Zalena as the alpha male he is, partaking in carnal pleasures infused with pain that fade into soft care once his urges have been fulfilled.

A wolf shifter who despised the modern adaptation of his kind as ‘werewolves.’ With puppy-like enthusiasm and a good nature that lifts everyone’s spirits, Ezra has an animalistic personality in the bedroom infused with playfulness.

A mage who taps into the white half of the spirit element. He’s very ordinary compared to his brethren, but has a calming way about him that puts everyone at ease. He’s the voice of common sense in their trio, and when he’s gone on missions, the other two are known for making very bad decisions.

The Woman:

A tiny, raven-haired beauty who has clawed her way up in the world from a dark past we don’t quite understand yet. She’s unwittingly pulled into a world of magic, into the battle for balance in the world, when she accepts a cleaning position from Damien.

*Book Tour & Giveaway* Accidentally on the Run by Jes Drew-GUEST POST

Accidentally On the Run 
An Accidental Superhero Story Book 1 
by Jes Drew 
Genre: Superhero Romantic Suspense 

Gabriel Cooper is just another cop on the NJPD- well, just another cop, except with almost psychic instincts. When those instincts lead him onto a bus to capture a hostile, he's exposed to a mysterious bomb. Still, it seems like just another adventure he walked away from. Except that suddenly, his instinct is becoming his primary sense to keep out of trouble- and there is a lot of trouble.

Braelin Cunningham has no family, but she does have her best friend Gabe. She'll do whatever it takes to protect him from the mysterious League of Incredible Supermen. As long as Braelin gets to be by the side of her best friend and secret crush, she'll do it. Even if it means going on the run when more than the League get interested with Gabe's newfound abilities.

On the run together, it seems like no matter where they turn, danger is there. When it comes to having superpowers, apparently, you can run- but you can't hide. 

Jes Drew is the author of the Ninja and Hunter trilogy, the Howling Twenty trilogy, the Kristian Clark saga, the Castaways trilogy, and Mind of Darkness. She lives with her mom, dad, younger sister, four younger brothers, and two dogs, obsessing about her true love, Captain Steve Rogers. There is a possibility that she may or may not be a superhuman, but she hasn't discovered her powers. Yet. Also, she might be a spy, but that's classified. 


I have been fascinated by the concept of superheroes since the beginning of my writing career- it's how I began it, actually, with The Time I Saved the Day. When it comes to superheroes- and supervillains- there is a lot of dynamics to consider. There is the struggle of good verses evil, of course, but it is more complicated than just that. Sometimes the question is, how far can a good guy go to stop a bad guy- even doing bad things for a good reason- before it's too far and they are, in fact the villain? How far should they go? Another dynamic I explore in this book is how sometimes someone's greatest strength can become their greatest weakness- and vice versa. It all depends on how you wield it.

*Book Tour & Giveaway* Fighting For Home by Kim Richards-GUEST POST

Fighting For Home 
Descendants of the Amazoi Book 1 
by Kim Richards 
Genre: Historical Fantasy 

In 300 B.C.—the Greco-Roman Age—tribes of warrior women thrived near the Black Sea. The area is now modern-day Turkey. The Greeks called them Amazoi (meaning Mankiller). Inspired by their story, Fighting for Home sings the tale of one tribe as they battle to save their way of life. Healing magic is real! Ilenea and Saphira, the wolf sisters, battle close to home with others of their generation. A healer priestess named Essla travels to a temple of Artemis at Anthela with her male slave, bringing a call to arms for the pending war. She meets and falls in love with a Roman General. Whatever the outcome, this war changes everyone. 

Kim Richards is an author, editor, and book formatter. She writes horror, fantasy, science fiction, erotica, non-fiction, and children's books under her name Kim Richards and two pseudonyms: Sharie Silva and Kim Bundy.

Born and raised in Roswell, NM Kim now lives in Northern California where she is supervised by two cats and a small dog. She enjoys sewing, bellydancing, music, movies, and occasionally gardening. 


Where were you born/grew up at?

I was born on Walker AFB in Roswell, New Mexico. (Yes, that Roswell.) I still laugh because, when I was young, the alien thing was a skeleton in the closet. When the air force base closed, it became a ghost town that was marketed to retirees. Then, after a couple of books gained popularity, Roswell embraced its past. An old movie theater was turned into the alien museum; a mariachi festival evolved into the alien festival; the Main Street streetlamps have alien faced globes; and there are little green or gray alien images everywhere.

I can’t say it affected my love of paranormal and science fiction except in a minor way. The Apollo missions I saw on TV as a kid did more. There’s a moon rock and one of the space suits in the main city museum. They have a recreation of Robert Goddard’s (created rockets) workshop there as well. One of the high schools is named after him.

I suppose the alien thing applies more to paranormal for me since so many people treat it with a mysticism. There’s also a lot of Navajo and Apache lore in New Mexico. I grew up hearing the stories of their deities and heroes.

How to find time to write as a parent?

My sons are grown now but, when they were young, we sat at the kitchen table each evening. They did homework and I wrote. I also made good use of time when I was unemployed.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I’ve written since I was a kid. I wrote the typical teenager angst poems and short stories. My dad has a screenplay I wrote at the age of nine. I typed it on an old manual typewriter. It stars our family dog named Happy. I also had a teacher in middle school who taught me how to journal.

I don’t always have time to journal but try to as often as I can. Right now, I’m temping at the County Disease Control—Covid 19 Task Force. I’m full-time clerical support. I love it because I feel like I’m contributing to something vital in my community. I journal and write during my lunch hours. It doesn’t take me an hour to eat a sandwich.

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?

Fighting for Home. It has enough action and characterization to be interesting. I’d love to see the battle scenes played out on screen. Being set in 300 B.C., the costuming and setting could be gorgeous if created visually in the right hands.

Here’s something interesting:

Fighting for Home is about Amazon Warrior Women in 300 B.C. One of my hobbies is a LARP (Live Action Role Play) group called Amtgard. We have a subgroup within the fantasy game structure called a household. We call ourselves Amazons and are women supporting other women within the game. The Queen Mothers of the story are named after the three women who head this household. Each of these ladies read the chapters as I wrote them. It was a fun process to write it this way. Sending them the chapters gave me accountability and kept me on task for writing regularly. I thank them for that!
