According to the commercial I just heard in my car, there is every indication that I have unnaturally low testosterone, including my inability to have and maintain an erection. Lucky for me, the convenience store sells pills for this, right by the gummy bear section.

Edge Boxed Set Featuring Pretty Little Werewolf. #UF #PNR #YA #NA

Pretty LIttle Werewolf 2

The bestselling Edge young adult box set introduces Pretty Little Werewolf, a novel by Katie Salidas. This is just one of 20 page-turning, full length novels for only $.99! Order your copy today!

All Giselle ever wanted was a family... that can accept her for what she is, a werewolf.
In a world where supernatural creatures are not out and proud, this has been a problem for 16 year old Giselle. A child of the system, she's been bounced from home to home for as long as she can remember. As soon as the moon calls out her inner wolf, it's back into the system she goes.

Against the odds, a new family is found for Giselle. One that may prove the answer to all her dreams and wishes. But this family comes with a deadly secret that could send Giselle six feet under instead of back into the system.

Amid factions of warring witches and werewolves, and deadly curses with no hope for a cure, the way will not be an easy one, but if Giselle can call upon her skills as a lone wolf, she may just be able to unearth the truth keeping her from the one thing she's ever wanted... family.

Excerpt

“If anyone else sees those bites, you’ll be seeing the health office and getting a visit from CPS.”

“Pack life isn’t for all wolves, despite what everyone else will tell you. Some wolves just don’t belong in a pack.”

“Whatever decisions you make for or against being part of a pack have to come from here.” He pointed to his heart. “You can’t be forced. And your wolf certainly won’t stand for it. It all has to feel right.”

“Lippy pups like yourself find themselves at the wrong end of my teeth.”

“My intentions are pretty selfish too. I won’t align myself with a family at war. I don’t see the point in signing up for a fight I didn’t start.”

“The wolf packs… both of them… in one place, during a full moon… ludicrous! Are you trying to get everyone killed?”

“You’re really cute when you get all predator, you know.”

From the #Edge, 21 #YA and #NA Books that Push Boundaries!

Check out the amazing new box set, Edge, filled with novels by best selling authors including Angel Lawson's chilling young adult paranormal romance, Wraith.

Freak. Weird. Crazy. These are the names tossed around seventeen-year old Jane Watts by her fellow classmates. But things aren’t always as they seem. Sometimes there’s a reason for talking to yourself in the hallway at school.

Jane struggles with adjusting to her new home and school after an abrupt move. She wants one thing in life—to be like everyone else at school, but that’s hard to do when you’re the new kid. But she does manage to make one friend, Evan—he’s sixteen, charming, and protective. Everything a girl could want in a best friend…with one minor caveat.

He's dead.

Caught somewhere between life and death, Evan is tied to Jane and the living world unable to complete the journey to the other side. She thinks he’s here to be her friend, to take care of her, and that’s why no one can see or hear him.

That is until a new boy shows up at school after a rumored stretch in Juvie. Connor can see Evan and he’s not convinced the ghost is being completely honest. From his own experience ghosts tend to need something from the humans they connect to and Evan, despite his arguments isn’t any different.

Jane is resentful of Connor’s intrusion but realizes soon enough he’s right. Evan has secrets about his past and not only did his life end tragically but members of his family are still in danger. Jane must face her fears and battle Evan’s human demons to free both of them.

A Writer's Life

I'm working hard to get The Curse of Dark Root: Part Two out. I have just 40 days to get it all done before the final editor takes over. Writing a novel is tough, especially one with a complicated story line, and my brain doesn't want to shut off. Every time I close my eyes I see another scene, or something I've missed, or something that needs to be added. When I'm writing, I live in another world and its tough to pull out of it. And then, when it's done, I get 'writer's amnesia' where I have a hard time remembering what I wrote at all.

The Dark Root books take about 9 months for me to write (sometimes slightly more or less) and I'm always baffled and dazed when they are done.

And its never enough. There are always things you could do/change, even after your book is for sale. Always a part of me that screams "wait!" But like the saying goes, art is never finished, just abandoned.

At any rate, I'm hoping my readers enjoy this one. Im feeling more pressure this time than anytime before. And when Im freaking out I ask myself "why the hell am I doing this?" And then, almost miraculously, I get an email or a msg or a review from someone telling me how important my books are to them, and then I remember.

Heart Day 2016

My husband took me to dinner last night for Valentine's Day. It was lovely. Cheese, meat, and chocolate fondue until you can't take it anymore. He even got me a card.
Not a big deal,right? Well, the last card he got me was on my birthday and 1. He forgot to sign it 2. He forgot to give it to me and 3. He forgot to take it out of the bag. He's wonderful in many ways, but spontaneous romance (or one that involves milling around the Hallmark section of the grocery store) isnt his forte.
But the card was sweet and thoughtful. He wrote that he loved his 'quirky, lovable, brilliant, creative, and inspiring wife.' I  melted. Not sure what or why but those words got to me. Like, he saw the best in me and I knew it.
As a side note, I did try and get him something from Victoria's Secret for Valentine's Day (and wow, I just realized the acronym for that is VD which might have been appropriate during some age) but the corsets they tried to sell me pushed my middle in, while doubling my bottom and tripling my chins. Although Im sure darling husband wouldn't have minded, I have that image of the beautiful sales girl trying to tell me I looked 'amazing' (when we both knew I didn't) forever, and ever.
Oh well. That's married love, I suppose.

Author bio

USA Today Best Selling Author. Avid Reader. Writer of Witchy Things.

April spent her childhood with her fortune-telling mother and her get-rich-quick-scheming stepfather: traveling the carnival circuit, selling products door to door, and living in an abandoned miner's shack in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona. During her travels she met many interesting people who have found their way into her novels.

Later, April went to live with her martial artist father and spent her days twirling swords and performing karate chops--skills she now only uses in her stories or on her husband when he's forgotten to take out the recycling.

When she isn't writing, April enjoys Zumba, reading, Netflix, and video games. She is also an avid collector on anything related to: psychology, sociology, the occult, and world religion.

April is also a mother to two sons and a step-parent to a beautiful girl. She also has a cat named Boots who helps her with her writing by typing when she isn't looking. All paragraphs that begin with yxoxossssssssssssgggggggggg are credited to him.
