EXCERPT:

“I just wish you didn’t hate me so much.” I concentrated on the coffee in my cup as I swirled the wooden stirrer round and round.

“I don’t hate you,” I said, focusing my attention back to him. “I hate what we did. I hate that I let it define who I was for so long, and I hate that I hurt someone I cared about so much because of it. But I don’t hate you—you were just one of the many cracks in my life.”

He creased his forehead. “I don’t understand.”

I gazed at him long and hard, finally fearless of the shame the man staring back at me conjured up inside of me. He held no control over me, and he never had. I stood up and pushed my chair in as he sat there waiting for an explanation. “And I wouldn’t have expected you to. Goodbye, Jonathan.”


Author Bio:

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen – or in today’s world a touch of the keyboard. I love creating deep characters who you will love or love to hate.

My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? My happy place is a seat by the ocean with my feet in the sand or on the busy streets of New York City. You will more than likely find one of these places as the setting for most of my books.

Author: Gerry Huntman
Genres: Young Adult, Urban Fantasy
Publication date: September 1st, 2020
Published By: Meerkat Press
Book Acquired: ARC, Publisher
Ratings: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Synopsis:

Maree Webster—an “almost-emo” from the western suburbs of Sydney—hates school, has few friends, and is obsessed with angels and fallen angel stories. Life is boring until she decides to steal a famous painting from a small art gallery that has been haunting her dreams: swirling reds, grays and oranges of barely discernible winged figures. There, she meets a stranger who claims to know her and stumbles into a world where cities float in the sky, and daemons roam the barren, magma-spewing crags of the land far below. And all is not well—Maree is turning into something she loves but at the same time, fears. Most fearful of all is the prospect of losing her identity—what makes her Maree, and more importantly, what makes her human. Guardian of the Sky Realms takes the reader on a journey through exotic fantasy lands, as well as across the globe, from Sydney to Paris, from the Himalayas to Manhattan. At its heart, it is a novel about transformation. Book two of the series will be released in 2021.

Insta (1)
 

Book Name: Jax (Knight Attack Book One)

Author: MLJ Quigg

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Date of Publication: 2nd September, 2020

Book Description: 

Rock royalty.

That’s what people call me.

But all it took was a single phone call to bring me to my knees.

Five years later, my life has changed irrevocably forever.

Though someone lurks in the shadows threatening to tear all that I love apart. 

An obsession of the worst kind. 

Can I keep the woman I love safe?

Or will everything burn to ash… 

Amazon


My interview with the author MLJ Quigg:

1) Tell us something about yourself.

I am a married mum of 3 adult kids. I live in a smallish country town between Sydney and Australia’s capital Canberra. I have 6 brothers and 1 sister and a half sister. I am a survivor of domestic abuse. Not much more to say. I am me!

2) What made you start writing?

A dream. That’s what started it all. 

3) If given a chance to co-author a book with another author, who would it be and why?

Oh boy, so many choices. I honestly couldn’t say. Either Penny Dee or Leah Sharelle. I’d love to just get in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s brain one day, don’t know whether I’d be worthy to write with her though, I can always dream.

4) If you could be any character from the book world, who would you choose?

Ushara from Born Of Legend by Sherrilyn Kenyon… Oh my god, that girl is awesome!

5) Paperbacks or digital copies, what’s your preference?

For everyday reading – digital

For looking and not touching – Paperback.

6) What was one important lesson that you learned while writing Jax? Any writing tips that you can share with us?

Take your time and make sure you like the story. If you have to go back and re-write, that’s okay. A subpar book is not okay.

Writing tips, research editors. Find one that fits your personality and even talk to other authors they have under them. These are essential, can’t say that enough.

7) Are you working on any new projects? When will we see them?

I am. Writing Dozer (Thorny Devils Book 3) and I hope it comes out soon. Life is crazy at the moment, and I can’t write as much as I’d like to.

8) What is your favorite quote from Jax?

I leave with a light heart,

I don’t feel bad that we’re apart.

My good wishes are with you,

May you reach where you wish to.

You expect me to be sad I don’t have your love,

But I’m returning it to you with a shove.

And I know that must really suck,

But I don’t really give a fuck.

9) Which author do you look up to?

So many. Sherrilyn Kenyon. She is going through hell at the moment and she still keeps a positive attitude and she writes awesome books.

10) A few words for our reader? 

Thanks for taking the time to listen and I hope you enjoy your time here and my books. Peace out.
