Special Release – Witch Wars by T.A. Moorman

About the Author:

When you become a Mom, you begin to put yourself last, and your combat boots begin to collect dust. Going to your child’s PTA meetings in full Gothic, especially industrial, regalia is pretty much frowned upon. Especially by your own children, and your teens would die of a heart attack. But, one should not have to completely stop being themselves, uniqueness is greatness. So all of that darkness is put into words in her books, and designs in her jewelry sold in her GothicMoms DarkCharms shop.

Mother of five beautiful children, but by far more than just that. T. A. Moorman is an artist, a violinist, a seamstress, a crafter, a writer, a blogger, a reviewer, a dark confidant and a darkly dangerous, fiercely protective friend. And currently broke, so go buy something of hers. Lol.

Synopsis:

Tialanna is fated to become the queen of all Underlayes witches. She thinks the worst part of her life is the fact that she’s betrothed to a complete stranger while in love with someone else. She’s in for a rude awakening when she discovers who, and what, she truly is.

Tialanna is about to learn the truth behind several lies, because not only does her life depend on it, but so does the fate of the family she never even knew she had. But hey, life would probably just be boring if she didn’t have to deal with elemental witches, vampires, demons, sorcerers, bindings, spells, lust and betrayal. Right?

Excerpt from Witch Wars:

“Yes. No. Just stop!” I shouted in his face, barely able to think, to breathe. “Tonight is the beginning of my courtship with Bran. We have to stop.” Even though stopping was the last thing I wanted.

“You think Bran can make you feel like this?” he damn near growled as he grabbed the back of my head, gripping my hair and rubbing his face in the crook of my neck. He inhaled deeply, sending chills down my spine. “I can smell your lust, Tia, your desire for me. Me, not him.”

“It doesn’t matter,” I replied weakly.

“The hell it doesn’t matter. I am not giving up that easily, Tia. If this is the last chance I have with you, I am taking full advantage. I will make it so that every time you look at him, you will wish it was me.” He ground out each word slowly and precisely through clenched teeth. “Every time he beds you, it will be my face you’ll see, my hands you’ll long for, my name on the tip of your tongue.”

“Grimm, please…”

And then he was kissing me again, harder and faster than before. His tongue exploring every inch of my mouth. Our tongues twisting together in a wild, exotic dance. My body felt like it was on fire, and so did his. Then we were sliding down to the floor to our knees. He gently laid me on my back, never breaking our kiss, my legs opening seemingly of their own accord to accommodate his girth. Slowly, oh so slowly, he broke our lingering kiss. He was on top of me, hands on the floor like he was doing a push-up, eyes as black as pitch; I could see my blazing eyes reflected in those dark pools.

Still balancing on one arm and looking into my eyes, he was sliding his other hand down my body, pulling off my pants. Very slowly, he slid his hand up the inside of my thighs, spreading them apart. His hand crept up my inner thigh until he found that spot that let him know just how hot and wet I was for him. Then he was nipping and licking his way down my neck while flicking his thumb over my clit, making my body shudder against his. When he found my breast and took as much of it into his mouth as he could, he drove two fingers inside me. Then he released my breast and kissed his way down to my navel, licking delicately down toward more sensitive regions, all the while his fingers caressing, rubbing, and probing. Suddenly, just when I thought I was about to explode with pleasure, his fingers were replaced by his tongue, going deeper than I would have thought possible, and he was drinking me like I was the finest wine.

Somewhere in all of that, he must have taken off his own pants, because suddenly he was once again hovering over me, and with our gazes locked he thrust every inch of himself inside me—and trust me, there were a lot of inches—leaving me gasping for air and wanting to beg for more.

“If you want me to stop, tell me now and I will,” he snarled, pulling out slowly until only the tip of him was left inside, making a small sound escape from my lips. “But if I am only allowed this one last time, allow me at least this much to keep with me. Allow me to have every piece of you, if only once more.” He gave another deep, powerful thrust, making me cry out. “Allow me to give you every inch of myself for just one final time. Allow me to feel very hot, sweet spot that is all you. Even if you do go on with this foolish plan, he will only have your body. Only I will forever own your heart.”

He kissed me again, then said, “I swear, you will regret leaving me.”


T.A. Moorman Author Interview

 

What is the most unethical practice in the publishing industry?

I could go on for days on this one. Lol. Let’s just go with the longest standing one, the fake publishing houses. The ones that truly aren’t publishers at all, but really just a vanity press and not upfront about what they truly are. If you’re paying for an editor, and for graphics for your cover, and everything else, then you are not with a legit publisher; you’re just self-publishing and don’t even realize it. A true publisher is one that believes in you enough to invest in you. After all, if you aren’t selling they aren’t earning. It’s more than a win-win, it’s a partnership.

What are common traps for aspiring writers?

See above. Lol. Also, beware of phony editors, if you’re self-publishing. Ask for credentials, ask for references, you do not want to end up with someone who is truly no more than a paid beta reader. I love my betas, but they will be the first to tell you, they are not editors and only have a wide tooth comb, not the fine tooth needed to find the mistakes you both might miss. Never be afraid to ask the needed questions. Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question, just dumb ass answers.

What is your writing Kryptonite?

Myself. Sometimes, though I hate to admit it, I let the doubters and the naysayers get into my head and doubt myself because of that. Kind of hard to get the words flowing when you second guess every word you write.

What’s your favorite genre to read for pleasure?

Paranormal. I’ve been through pretty much everything you can think of when I read I want to escape ALL of that.

Do you hide any secrets in your books that only a few people will find?

Yup. LOL! Especially in the second book in the Underlayes series. Let’s just say one particular ex-gets what’s coming to him. Since I would never be able to do the things I’d like to do to him in real life… It was very satisfying writing those scenes.

What was your hardest scene to write?

The ending! I am not a planner, I’m strictly a pantser. I have to just let the story take me wherever it goes, and sometimes those endings have me in tears as I write them.

What do you want readers to know about your book?

In the Underlayes series, there are a few Goddesses you may not be familiar with. They don’t play an integral part where you’ll miss anything by not knowing them, but their names just may be new to you; Sekhmet, Nyx, Hel. And always keep in mind I love ALL my readers. So if you have questions never hesitate to ask. You can find me on my FB page.

Author Interview – Jamie White

What is your pen name?

Jamie White

Where are you from?

South Florida

Tell me about yourself? (family life, education, growing up)

I was born and raised here in South Florida, and I had a lot of chaos for quite a bit of my childhood. Because of that, I usually was sitting on the playground reading and am still kind of shy. I studied journalism, starting in the 10th grade, and ended up doing some blogging and freelance writing for a little bit. After, I turned to blogging on my own and writing books. Today, I live with my husband and fellow author, CP Bialois, and our furry kid (a cat named Cleo).

What is your genre you write in?

New Adult Suspense/Paranormal

What is your latest release or when is your book going to be released?

My latest is a romance novella that was released in June that deals with a girl whose psychic gift is getting in the way of a potential relationship. The next one is planned for November and is the fifth book in my #LightworkerSeries. It’s basically about a girl whose life is turned upside down when she discovers that everything she knew about herself was a lie.

When and why did you start writing? What inspired you to write your first book?

I started writing fiction because CP wanted to go to a writing group (he was already writing a book at the time), and it sounded like a fun challenge. I wrote my first short story in that group, and haven’t stopped since.

Is there anything in your writing that is based on your life, people you know or events based on real life?

Let’s put it this way: My husband is still demanding royalties for a certain character. LOL.

Have you ever traveled for your writing process for research?

Not yet, but I would love to maybe do that one day.

Would you like to tell us who edits and designs your books and covers?

Elaine Roughton is an awesome editor who has been working with me on the second book in my #StainsTrilogy, Trembling Souls. RJ Keith is the amazing artist behind pretty much every cover I have right now (except for Lyrical Muse).

Is there a message in your book or key things that stand out?

I think pretty much all my work has been people going through self-discovery and overcoming the past.

Is there an author that helped influence your writing?

Christopher Pike is my writing idol. I loved how he was working in all this spiritual, historical, mythological stuff into his work.

Do you have a favorite independent author that you love?

Dawn Sullivan and Marni Mann are two authors I love. I’ve read everything they put out.

In the beginning of your work did you have a good support system in your writing?

It definitely helped to have another writer in the house. We can help each other with story issues and talk through some of the frustrations that come with the #writerlife together. I’ve also been lucky enough to come across some amazing people online who are part of the indie community that is supportive and inspiring.

People that stood behind you and encouraged you.

Cp, Dawn, Michelle Cornwell-Jordan, Elaine, RJ, Vicki Rose of Platinum Book Reviews and Promotions, Astra Empowerer, Jesse Gilbert of Twisted Geekdom, and the awesome ladies of Deadly Reads. These are just some off the top of my head, but there are so many! And I have to give love to my #WhitesWyrdWorld group.

Would you consider writing to be a career or a hobby?

Writing is my love and my career.

Is there anything you would change with your writing?

I don’t think so. I think the stories are coming to me exactly as they are supposed to, and I’m just along for the ride.

What is the easiest part of the writing process for you?

The actual writing part, definitely.

Do you have a favorite character in your book?

I don’t think I can really pick a fave, although Abigail is a lot of fun to write in the #LightworkerSeries.

Do you have a character you could see yourself dating?

I date them all because they all have a piece of CP in them. 🙂 I just am glad the reality is far more drama-free. lol

Some say they learn things when they write. Is there anything you learned from your last book writing it?

I learned that I can carry on a long-term series and go deeper. That was something I wasn’t sure I can do because I’d only written a trilogy before and all of my books were around 20-30K words. It’s so much fun learning to push my limits and do something a little different.

Do you have advice for any new writers who are considering self-publishing?

I’d say the most important thing is to really love what you’re doing. This isn’t always an easy road, and it’s not exactly a gold mine, so that love is going to save you a lot of pain and ease your frustrations when you’re riding out one of the rough patches.

Is there anything you would like to tell your readers?

Thank you so much for choosing to read my work, and I especially want to say thank you to the people who have shared their thoughts via private message and Amazon. It makes my day to know you’re enjoying the books.

Are you reading anything now?

Right now, I’m reading “Hot Chocolate for the Mystical Soul.”

Do you remember the first book you ever read?

Hmm… maybe the Pokey Little Puppy? Possibly a mother goose book? That’s hard! I do remember that my first book series was “The Babysitters Club”.

Do you have any hobbies you enjoy?

Singing, reading, practicing meditation and Reiki.

Do you have any films or TV shows you enjoy?

Right now, I am really into The Americans, Doctor Who, and a novella called Sin Senos Si Hay Paraiso.

Do you have a blog or website readers can visit, possibly a newsletter? A book link?

All my social links, my newsletter, and blogs are all on my website: http://www.JamieLWhite.com
You can find the entire #LightworkerSeries as well as my others on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Jamie-White/e/B00850MY88/
FYI, the first book in both series (LEARNING ME and STAINS ON THE SOUL) is free here: https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/JamieBMusings

Do you have any social media links you would like to share?

I am everywhere pretty much (check my site link), but my two faves are Instagram and Twitter.
