Thought the war that brought the human race to the brink of extinction was over. But a month can change everything. After fighting to escape a tyranny she didn't even know existed, Avery has had to come to grips with all the secrets she's uncovered. But more secrets continue to come to light, revealing how little of her world she truly knew. When evidence starts to show that Dome Four might be under siege, Avery knows what she must do. Returning to the dome she longed to escape is a challenge for Avery, but now she knows there’s corruption lurking in the shadows. A massive steam shortage leaves half the dome without power, and people are falling ill. Dying. And they’re blaming Avery. A month can change everything. One more month could kill everyone. The clock is ticking.

Newsletters, Beginnings, and Plots Oh My!

So I am totally behind on sharing the Youtube videos that we have done at #LoveWriteCreate so I thought I'd share a few of the most recent and you can watch 'em all or pick if something sounds interesting to you (but I know you want to watch them all because you might miss out on our random entertainment ;)

First up! We invited author S.M. Boyce to share with us her knowledge of Newsletters. Check her out!

Next up! We at #LoveWriteCreate shared with you how we each began the writing process in the hopes that it might inspire you to either finally start writing that idea that you've kept in your head for so long or just to know that you might not be alone in how you began. All of our processes are different.

Most Recently! We chatted about PLOTTING!! Now, I am not known for my plotting. In fact, I am usually a "pantser" but could I have changed my tune?? Check out our thoughts and tips on plotting. Feel free to share your own thoughts and ideas with us too here on my site or go to the LWC site:

Cover Reveal! The Spiral Ascended by Erin Danzer

Title: The Spiral Ascended (Spiral Defenders Series: Book Four)
Author: Erin Danzer
Genre: Young Adult Scifi/Romance
Publication Date: September 12, 2014

Everything seems perfect now that Ronnie is married. She can be crowned and finally defeat the evil that infests the Spiral.

Until Rick and the Irradians seize the castle.

Now, Ronnie and Gavin are in hiding. They must amass an army from those still loyal to them and protect their friends and family—all without leaving their refuge. When Ronnie ventures out, Gavin is captured. Their bond is severed. All Ronnie knows is that Gavin is still in her heart.

Until that breaks, too.

Ronnie must find the strength to ascend to her destiny and defeat Rick or risk losing everything forever.


“We need to leave, Princess. Now,” Gavin growled at her, turning to kill a gremlin that thought it would sneak up on them.
“But my mom and dad! Andi and Shawn! I need to help them!” she screamed. She turned to jump into the fray to find them… only to have Gavin grab her again and pull her back against him. Three gremlins scurried towards them. Ronnie slashed out with her sword automatically, her eyes on the vile creatures but her mind racing with thoughts of what could happen to her parents and friends. Where were they?
Her heart pounded in her chest like a caged animal eager to be released. Her hands began to shake and she grasped her sword with both of them to steady her aim as another group of gremlins came towards her and Gavin. She met them head on, taking them out easily. She felt Gavin’s pride at her swiftness and gave a small smile. Her eyes turned back to the melee on the floor. Where were her parents? She thought she saw a glimpse of blonde curls and screamed for Andi. Again, Gavin grabbed her and stopped her when she tried to run after her friends. She turned on him with malice in her eyes.
“We need to get out of here. They’re protected,” Gavin declared, his grip tight on her left arm. “If you don’t come with me right now, I will throw you over my shoulder and drag you out of here. My number one priority is your safety.”
“My number one priority is theirs!” she screamed.
Her eyes scanned the crowd again and widened when she saw Rick enter the room. Before anyone else could get to him, Cenric was suddenly there swinging a sword at his brother. Rick parried with his own, the blade swathed in wraiths. She watched their deadly battle, everything around her falling away. In her mind, all she saw was Dirac falling at Rick’s hand. She couldn’t let that happen to Cenric, too. She shook off Gavin and took three steps before he grabbed her again, just getting her before she jumped off the dais. She glared at him as she spun towards him.
“I can’t lose him!” she pleaded, tears suddenly in her eyes.
“He can take care of himself,” Gavin pointed out. Still holding onto her, he opened a portal and pushed her through it, closing it as he followed.

The Flower of Hell (Short Story Companion to A Prescription for Delirium)

Gabriella devoted her eternity to carrying out her vengeance against demons. As she pursues her latest prey she stumbles across another hunter. To Gabby, Dimitri is an unneeded distraction, but he attracts her like no other man has for centuries. Will this hunter unlock the feelings she’d buried long ago or will he just open her up to more heartache? Can Gabby protect both of them from the demon stalking the Paris streets?

This is a short story companion to the Van Helsing Organization series.

A Prescription for Delirium (Van Helsing Organization #1)

Demons, werewolves, possessed bikers, madness spreading like a virus, and a revenge that has waited for over 500 years. What more could Gabby look for in a vacation spot?

Ninety years ago, Gabriella di Luca promised to protect the family of her dying lover. She failed to keep that promise. She was too far away to stop the devil that murdered the eldest Van Helsing son. Years later, Gabby learns the devil has resurfaced. She arrives in Hampton, TX, determined to stop the devil before it can lay a bloody hand on the remaining three brothers.

However, madness is spreading through Hampton. She suspects the devil is using this madness to test a drug which has a side effect of demonic possession. Gabby rushes to end the source of the madness only to fall victim to it. For a woman cursed with eternal life, dying is no threat. However, Gabby must stop the devil's plot or risk losing her most precious possession: her mind. 

Author Bio:

Noree Cosper loves writing about magic in the modern world. While growing up in Texas she constantly searched for mystical elements in the mundane. She buried her nose in both fiction and books about Wicca, Religion, and Mythology. Everyday became an adventure as she joined a group of role-players, acting out her fantasies of vampires, demons, and monsters living in the world.

She embraced her nerdom wholeheartedly.

Noree grew, but never left her love for fantasy and horror. Her dreams pushed her and her hand itched to write the visions she saw. So, with her fingers on the keys, she did what her heart had been telling her to do since childhood. She wrote.
