Fury Unleashed by NJ Walters

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Maccus Fury, a fallen angel, is trying hard to keep his sanity. Seems being an assassin might be catching up with him. Now, Heaven, or Hell, has sent a beautiful assassin to kill him. Lovely. She’s pretending to seduce him, and he’s okay with that. She’s smart and snarky—but she has no idea what she’s walked into. And he’s more than peeved that they only sent one person. They’re going to need an army if they want him dead.

Morrigan Quill is one of Hell’s bounty hunters. She sold her soul to keep her sister safe, and now she’s working off her contract by catching bad guys and dragging them back to hell. When Lucifer makes her a new offer––that’s definitely too good to be true—she can’t say no. All she has to do is kill a powerful and crazy-hot fallen angel, who will totally kick her ass in battle.

Good thing he won’t see what’s coming next.

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

How Does Brenda do it?

Brenda Sparks managed to be the top blogger on Romance Lives Forever, two years in a row. How? I can tell you one thing, she talks about other authors who appear here and sends out tweets every week leading people back to her posts. In return, she gets a book listed on the front page of the blog for a year. Not shabby at all! See an example of one of her tweets below. It’s about her book, but it goes to the RLF blog. I think one secret is she cares and shares.

And what about Vicki Batman, who managed to get 40 comments on one blog post? What does she do to get people to read and comment? One thing about her that I know, she supports other authors, and she has an incredibly compelling personal story to tell. She and her husband, whom she always calls Handsome, have been going through a long battle with cancer. She’s shared her unfolding story each year during Cancer Awareness in October. Her readers love keeping up with her. I think one secret is her big heart.

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

Both Brenda and Vicki get a full year of advertising on RLF. Congratulations!

What kind of books do they write? Brenda writes Paranormal and Vicki writes Contemporary and Women’s Fiction. The other authors listed below are an interesting mix. Two write historical fiction, and several write suspense. The biggest draw on this site is romance, followed by contemporary, PNR (paranormal romance), romantic suspense, historical, contemporary, and sci fi. That last one is partly because it’s what I write and I sneak in a post every month myself. We have a large number of Sci Fi posts from others too. But those are not the only genres. We have everything except kidlit.

In 2019, There were many authors who did an amazing job of bringing visitors to the blog. After Brenda Sparks, the following authors are listed in order based on the number of visits they brought to the blog.

#1 Lyndell Williams
#2 Dee S Knight (Dee comments on RLF every day!)
#3 Kryssie Fortune
#4 NJ Walters
#5 Alina K Field
#6 Daryl Devore
#7 Alexa Aston
#8 Karen Cino
#9 Jami Gray
#10 Amber Daulton

Two authors whose visits were also high overall were Vicki Batman (surprised? not) and Lorelei Confer.

So how do you get to be a number one blogger and get your name out there where people can hear about you? Use Twitter. Share on Facebook. Pop it into your newsletter. Share pictures on Tumblr. Whatever works for you, use it to tell people where you are going to be. When an author shares it helps others as well as the author. Being a champion for others is what it’s all about.

Here’s the link to sign up for next year. I use SignupGenius to let you pick your own date, plus, you’ll get automated reminders so you don’t miss a scheduled visit.

My thanks to all the wonderful authors who have appeared on RLF during 2019. Here’s to a prosperous and successful 2020.

Naughty Heroes: In and Out of Uniform by the Naughty Literati @NaughtyLiterati #RLFblog #NewRelease #militaryromance NJ Walters, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about the new Naughty Literati book.

Naughty Heroes: In and Out of Uniform by the Naughty Literati

Genre Contemporary Military Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Marine On A Mission
NJ Walters

When Mitch McCoy left rural Kentucky to join the U.S. Marines he never thought he’d return. Now he’s undercover with a state drug task force. He’s not only facing his past, but also Sara Hawkins, the woman who broke his heart. This investigation will risk their lives and their hearts.

Sex Bomb
Nicole Austin

From first sight I knew Marine Lieutenant Harlie Savage wasn’t fragile like a flower—she was fragile like a bomb. Definitely not some princess who needed to be saved, either. She was a queen who only lacked a sword, and I vowed to be her weapon.

Her Soldier Of Fortune
Belle Scarlett

Leia has no idea who ex-Marine Major Tate McIntyre is when he saves her life in a dark alley. Yet Tate’s certain Leia is his to have, hold, and protect. He vows to keep her safe at any cost. His only price is her heart. Semper Fi!

The Night Watchman
Katherine Kingston

A disabled vet rescues a woman on a mission to collect evidence, saving her from the men chasing her. As Jace and Shannon race to survive and outwit a traitor, a deep connection grows between them. But staying alive long enough to explore the attraction will take everything they’ve got.

Military Blues
Elizabeth Lapthorne

Luke is struggling to recover from a career shattering IED blast that sees him permanently discharged. Milly’s career self-destructed and she’s moved cities in the hopes of starting again. Can this new life and new relationship be a second chance for them both?

Why did you write this book?

I’m thrilled to be approached to be a part of this boxed set with the other members of the Naughty Literati. Military men and women lend themselves to romance novels. I had such fun writing Marine on a Mission, a action-packed, sexy novella. And you can pre-order it for the special price of 99-cents. Price will go up after release.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance, of course. Within the genre, I love to read contemporary, romantic suspense, historical, paranormal, and even some fantasy. One of the things I love about the genre—it has something for everyone.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

It’s pretty much impossible to pick just one character. I have so many favorites. One of my favorite couples has to be Eve Dallas and Roarke from J.D. Robb’s In Death series. They are seriously badass, but far from perfect. Watching the evolution of their relationship over so many books has been a wonderful journey. I grab these books as soon as they’re released.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on a new paranormal series for one of my publishers. Should have several books in the series releasing in 2020. I’m really excited about it.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

As I said, you’ll see two, possibly three books in a new paranormal series releasing in 2020. (More details when I get the final blurbs and dates.) I’m also part of the Naughty Temptations: Collection Four releasing in February. That contains two novellas that have been unavailable for some time. That’s all I have nailed down for now.

Read the new SciFi Romance Flynn's Assassin by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #SciFi #RomanceNJ Walters, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Flynn’s Assassin by NJ Walters

Genre Science Fiction Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

When mercenary and space trader Flynn Marks is approached by a woman in a seedy bar, he assumes she’s not just looking for a good time. He’s made enemies over the course of his life. With his family finally safe and settled, he’ll handle this latest threat on his own.

Cerena Phelps has been tasked with killing a man if she ever wants to see her teenage son again. While she’s no stranger to fights–being a woman bouncer is a tough job–she’s never killed a man. Her plan? Lure Flynn away from the bar, seduce him, and kill him when his guard is down. Not a hardship given her unexpected and intense sexual attraction for her target. When her attempt on Flynn’s life fails, they must learn to trust each other if they both hope to survive and rescue her son.

Describe the perfect vacation.

I love the beach! And not a sandy, sunny beach, but a rocky one filled with shells, driftwood, and treasures washed up by the waves. I have a small collection of beach glass I’ve gathered over the years. I love interesting rocks and shells. After a day beachcombing, I’d love to sit around a campfire and watch the night sky. And on bad weather days, I’d curl up with a good book or two.

What are your hobbies?

I love to read. No surprise there. I also enjoy going to movies. I’ll see over thirty a year in the theatre. I enjoy going to the afternoon shows when it’s quieter. I love a good yard sale or thrift store. It’s the search for that next “treasure.” Not necessarily anything worth money, but something I’ll love.

When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?

I read a lot of romance over different genres–contemporary, paranormal, futuristic, historical, suspense. It all depends on my mood. I like to mix it up. I also read nonfiction, some work related, but much of it is spiritual and personal growth books.

What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?

That always depends on what I’m writing. Sometimes I’ll read nonfiction books to learn more about a place or a skill. I’ve used maps and guide books to become better acquainted with other counties and settings. I’ve used Google Maps to “walk” the streets of a city where I set a book. I’ve watched many YouTube videos. You can find almost anything you need online.

For example, when I wanted to research the Trans-Siberian Railway I viewed many YouTube videos posted by people who took the train trip. I wanted to see what the trains looked like and how they were broken down by class. I also bought a Russian guidebook (much like the one the heroine uses in the book) for language and travel information. I used all that information and more in Drakon’s Tear.

In a book like Flynn’s Assassin, which is futuristic, much of it came from my imagination. I have to be careful when creating worlds to stay consistent. It’s so much fun but a lot of work as I have to make notes about everything.

If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?

Flynn Marks is a dangerous space mercenary, so his ringtone would have to be badass. I’m thinking “Wrong Side of Heaven” by Five Finger Death Punch.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?

I love to write all kinds of romance–paranormal, contemporary, sci-fi, and fantasy. It’s fun and challenging to switch up genres, but I always write romance with a HEA.

How do you come up with ideas?

Ideas come from everywhere–a snippet of conversation, an online article, a movie or television show. Sometimes ideas seem to pop in my mind from out of nowhere. That’s the fun of being a writer.

What is the single most important part of writing for you?

The characters. Everything begins and ends with them. They tell me their stories.

When did you write your first book?

I wrote my first book back in 1995, but my first book wasn’t published until October 27, 2004. That book was Annabelle Lee, which is available today as Uncovering Annabelle. I just celebrated my 15th year as a published author. It’s been a blast. I look forward to the next fifteen years.

Unexpected Angel by NJ Walters

Genre Science Fiction Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Angelina Astoferus is on the run from her uncle, who wants to marry her off as part of a business deal. Her only hope is to find a spaceship to escape on–and a man willing to take her virginity, since her being pure is part of the deal. A desperate escape attempt leads her to the loading docks of the planet Oasis, where she spies Amos. Captivated by him, when the opportunity to sneak on board his ship arises, she takes it.
When Amos Marks discovers a stowaway on his ship, he knows she is big trouble. He and his brothers don’t need two dangerous enemies–her powerful uncle and the jilted warrior from Gravas–but Amos can’t turn his back on her. He decides to help her with her outlandish plan, but neither of them expects that the physical connection between them will lead to so much more.

How long have you been writing?

My first book was published October 27, 2004. Hard to believe it’s been almost 15 years. The industry, and my writing, has changed so much in that time.

What was your first published book?

My very first published book was Annabelle Lee with Ellora’s Cave. That was back when ebooks weren’t considered “real” books by the New York publishing houses and long before Amazon became a powerhouse in the industry. Amazing how much the world has changed since then.

I was so excited when they accepted my book. They wanted me to add about 10K to the story. I told them it was no problem. Then I panicked and went to work. It changed my life.

The book went out of publication for a couple of years after the publisher closed, but it has been released as Uncovering Annabelle.

Tell us about your writing space or home office.

I’ve written all but two of my books in a small 3′ by 6′ corner of my living room. I have a small desk, a desktop computer, and a small shelf. That’s my writing cave. The computer isn’t online. When I sit there, all I do is write.

What do you love most about that area?Do It Write: Where NJ Walters writes @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #SciFiRomance

Oddly enough, I love how small it is. I like being cozy. I like that everything is close at hand. There’s wall on two sides of the space and a privacy screen around the front and part of other side. It really is a writing cave.

If money was no object, what would your home office look like?

Honestly, if money was no option I’d own a house, maybe something 800 to 1000 square feet. (Which is much bigger than my current apartment.) I’d love a small office with floor to ceiling bookshelves on at least two of the walls for my books and personal mementos. I’d have my desk beside a window overlooking a yard. I’d also have a cozy reading area in front of the shelves where I could relax or work on research and notes.

What office equipment do you use most, other than your computer?

I’m a bit of a technophobe, so I’m not big on electronics. Other than my desktop computer, I’d say I use my iPad mini the most. I use it mostly in the evenings when I’m curled up on the sofa for checking email or social media. I’ll even watch TV shows and YouTube videos on it.

What book or books about writing do you recommend for new authors?

There are so many great books on writing. Some are purely technical while others are more inspirational. I’d tell any new author to check out what’s in their local library and local bookstore to get a feel for what’s out there. Stephen King’s On Writing and Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird are both go-to books for most writers and a great starting point.

What do you like to read for relaxation?

I love to read romance, of course–historical, contemporary, romantic suspense, and paranormal. I also love to read nonfiction books. A lot of self help, personal growth types of books. I figure it’s good to balance things out.
