About THE GATES OF ATLANTIS:
Centuries ago the great city of Atlantis had to be hidden from humans. Now magically buried in the depths of the ocean, it is the source of all magic. All is well in the magical world…until the leaders of Atlantis listen to the whims of a mad man.

A group of teens set out on their own unique quests to fight for the world they love. They face dangers they didn’t know existed. As they battle their way through mysterious tunnels and secrets of the ancient world, they find themselves in a race against time. One by one, the mad man will shut down the Gates of Atlantis and destroy the magic. Can these unlikely heroes stop him before it’s too late?

Book 2: GUARDIANS OF THE GATES, by Laura D. Bastian: Mermaid Talia wants to be a Guardian. Exander wants to leave Atlantis and explore the upper world. An accident at one of the gates gives them both their chance, but they also make a startling discovery—someone is destroying the gates.

Book 3: SECRETS OF THE MINE, by Juli Caldwell: Adam believes in myths and magic. Clancy doesn’t. Two normal kids’ lives change when they embark on the adventure of a lifetime on the back of a sea kelpie...if only they can get away from the strange creatures that are determined to stop them.

Book 6: BATTLE FOR ACROPOLIS, by Mikey Brooks: Talon keeps getting in trouble. It’s not his fault things around him randomly burst into flame, but he’s not sticking around to find out what happens next. When foster sister Hattie encourages him to run, they make a break for it, only to find an unexpected destiny awaiting them in Atlantis. They just have to get there first.

Dannika Dark New Release

“Four Days” (The Seven Series #4) By Dannika Dark Release Day Blitz HTML CODE December 16, 2014


Four Days
(Seven Series, Book #4)
By Dannika Dark

Blurb:
Ivy believes every life must have balance, and during the past year, she’s found harmony living with the Weston pack. When an evil spirit from her past threatens her wolf, it sets off a chain reaction of events that alters the course of her destiny.

Lorenzo Church is a powerful, wealthy Packmaster who rules his pack through intimidation and order. He has vowed to never love a woman because love can destroy an empire. But chaos is fast approaching in the form of a Shifter named Ivy—a Native American, like him, who has invaded his dreams since the moment they met. She is spirited, wise, and unattainable.

In an unexpected turn of events, Ivy must choose whether or not to let go of the one person she has always loved. Lorenzo discovers the root of her courage but will never win her as his mate unless he learns to listen to his heart.

Excerpt

Lorenzo reached out and stroked my cheek. “When we first met, you were but a flowering vine swinging from the tree I found you in, trying to cling to anyone who would hold you.”
  
I brushed his hand away and drew back. “You are no better than my father, comparing me to a poisonous vine. I am not the desperate woman you make me out to be, and I have no need to cling to anyone but those who love me. I will not hold on to a great oak, because as magnificent as it may be, it will never hold me back. My family holds me with their kind words and love, and that is all a Shifter can ask for. What is it you want, Lorenzo? To question the integrity of my Packmaster? We’re better off within the city. There are places to take refuge, those who might help us, and…”

Through my powerful speech, Lorenzo cracked a smile. It was slight at first, but it became wide and he flashed his teeth at me.

I had begun to turn away when Lorenzo captured my wrist and tugged me against him. His arm slid around my lower back in a claiming gesture. He cupped the nape of my neck with his other hand, and before I could protest, Lorenzo rubbed noses with me.

In the middle of a crowded club.

“Such a spirited wolf you have,” he growled.

 “What do you want of me?”

He drew in a breath, as if taking in my scent. “Don’t you want to be my friend?”

“A man like you doesn’t make friends—he makes enemies.”

Lorenzo kissed me hard, his tongue slipping so deep that my legs quivered. Then he drew back and rubbed noses again. “I can do friendship. Sunday night. Checkers. My place.” He pressed his lips to my ear and seduced me with whispers. “I can’t get you out of my head. These men leer at you in a way that makes me want to lose control. You need protection.”

“My pack protects me,” I said, forgetting the crowd around us as we held each other close.

“Will they protect you with their bodies as I will with mine?”

I tried to create distance between us. “Actions speak louder than words, and nothing but honey drips from your mouth.”


He chuckled darkly. “Your sharp tongue and wise words make my wolf sing.”



The Seven Series



About the Author


This is the segment where you learn a little more about who I am, so here's what I can tell you:  I drink copious amounts of vitamin water placed precariously close to my laptop while writing. These are two healthy habits I have no intention of breaking. I'm a transplant living in the south, but I was born in the 70's to a military dad who moved us around the world.

When I'm not writing (which is all the time), I'm hunting down Indie music, watching movies, reading, eating Tex-Mex, discovering new ways to humiliate myself bowling, and burning up my laptop battery on the Internet. I have a relaxed, easy-going personality and don't like drama. I live with a cat who thinks she is a dog, or a goat (she eats plastic, so I'm not sure which).

Throughout my life, I've had insomnia. Counting sheep never worked and eventually I would imagine those sheep were the sole source of food after an apocalyptic battle where only thousands survived. I made up stories in a futile attempt to bore myself to sleep. The problem was, I got so wrapped up in my "head stories" that I would continue them through the following nights, changing it up each time to make it more exciting. Eventually, I started writing my ideas down - creating short stories, and then I discovered my love for poetry.

It's almost embarrassing how many spiral notebooks and stacks of paper I have of poetry and lyrics.

Another passion: digital art. I design all my book covers, marketing, and series art. I'm a very visual person and pursued photography as an avid hobby for many years.

I am not a YA author (I feel like I have to state this only because I've had a few people ask), but I think it's wonderful there are so many books available to teens in Urban Fantasy and Paranormal.

I am finally doing what I have always wanted to do: giving my characters a pulse through writing full time. I focus on adult urban fantasy romance, but I don't like labels and I enjoy blending genres to break out of the confines of predictability.

But it's what I love to do.

Description of Book

Always be yourself 

That was the last advice Scout's Grandma Nora gave her before she died. Scout has spent her life trying to be anything but, but she has a chance to start anew as she moves several states away to college. She had always thought the glowing aura she saw around some people was a childhood fancy, but when it starts coming back just as she's starting her new life, she learns there was much hidden about who she truly is. 


Thankfully, she has a motley crew to help her along the way: a spunky bookseller, a trustworthy pub owner, a commanding grandmother, a possible best friend, and a hot rocker boy who only has eyes for her. 

INTERVIEW WITH DELPHINA HENLEY!!!

First off I have to say I have read Unless You Can Be a Unicorn and am absolutely in love with it!!

What was your inspiration for this book? Unicorns don’t seem to be wrote about very often. What made you decide to write about them?
I actually had pieces of this book in my head for a long time, but it wasn’t until someone posted a silly thing on FB asking people what kinds of shifters there needed to be more of that it all fell into place.  A unicorn immediately popped into my head and would not leave. That was a few years ago and finally I decided I needed to let them out.  

What was the most difficult part of writing?
I have always woven stories both in my head and on paper. I can’t remember a time I didn’t have something I was working on. For me, the hard part was getting up the courage to share those stories with others.  It took decades to take that risk and follow my dream and I am so very glad I did. 

I have a question I have been dying to ask. Are you going to write more books with Scout and the gang’s adventures? I have to say I am in love with those characters and your writing.
Thank you so much!  I am so excited that readers are asking for more. Yes, B3 is a series that will follow the crew as they all find true love, conquer evil, and things that are too spoilery to share. The next book, Ask Me About My Unicorn is all about Val and Lachlan and I am planning on an early 2015 release. 

Are the characters based on any people in your life?
I would say that no character is specifically based on anyone I know, although people in my life have of course influenced me and I know that there is a lot of me in Scout. I have, however, included a lot of little things about my life throughout the book. The college is named after the town my grandparents lived in, for example. 

If you could live in any book, which would you live in and why?
That is such a difficult question because I think it really depends on the day. Some days I would choose being in Quinn Loftis’s Grey Wolves series finding my inner wolf. Other times, I would choose hanging out at B3 finding new books. Yet others, I want to be hanging with Elizabeth Kirke’s MTM crew. The longer I think about this question the longer my list gets. There are so many amazing worlds out there in book land.

When deciding what you want to read, what genre do you gravitate towards?
I like a lot of variety in my reading, but my favorite go to read is always shifters. I joke that I am a shifter addict, but it might actually be true. I like bear shifters, wolf shifters, panther shifters, and even found a hedgehog shifter book I enjoyed. The idea of true fated love always pulls me in. 

What advice could you give to anyone aspiring to write?

Write, write and when you are done with that, write some more. Also, be brave and share your writing.  That is the advice I wish I had been given.  

I want to give a big THANK YOU to Delphina Henley for taking time out to answer these questions. You are AWESOME!!!



My Review
I have to say I was a little iffy about if I would like this or not. I'm happy to say this book was amazing. I was sucked in from beginning to end. I love the character Scout. She is very relatable and I was feeling the same things she was. Delphina Henley creates lovable characters and a fascinating storyline. She really made me want to be a Unicorn!!! I’m excited for another adventure and can’t wait! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes shifters and a faster storyline.
