Excerpt:



“Who was she?” I wondered to myself as I closed my eyes, breathing in her soft scent that was now in the air. It was not a strong scent but it was there, enough for me to catch a whiff of it.  Intoxicated by it, I yearned for her.  To feel her soft lips on my own as I touched her delicate flesh.  To hear her soft whisper in my ear as I hold her in my arms, as I kiss her deeply.  Closing my eyes again, I imagine her with me now, feeling the heat of her body as I gaze into her gorgeous eyes.
A blood-curdling scream suddenly shook me back to reality.  It was coming from upstairs, where my parents’ room was. Quickly, I turned around and sprinted up the stairs towards the scream. When I had reached the source of the scream, my eyes widened in disbelief and horror. What met my eyes, was a bloody scene.  What was once a white pristine bedroom suite, was now covered in blood.  In the bed, lay the two bodies:  both my mother and father. They were slaughtered in their sleep. Their maid who was now bawling, ran into my arms as I held her tightly.  The other maid who had been screaming, fainted from shock.  My brother Heath was next to show up, and he let out a soft gasp at the situation.
The gorgeous beauty in the garden earlier soon showed up with white roses in her hands. But once she saw the bloody bedroom, she let them fall to the floor, and her jaw dropped in disbelief.  A look of pure horror filled her eyes.  I still was unsure of who she was, this strange woman in my family home.  But now was not the time to ponder about who she was and why she was here. I had to handle the situation at hand.  Looking at my parents’ bodies, I could tell my father was holding something in his hand. Slowly I walked over to his side of the bed where he lay facing down. Gently, I pried his fingers apart.
I removed the bloody object that he was holding onto so tightly when he was murdered.  It was a golden pendant with the picture of a woman. Looking more closely at it and wiping the blood off of it, I recognized the woman in the picture as the gorgeous beauty that was now softly sobbing.  It was her – albeit a younger version.  Looking back at my parents slaughtered bodies, my heart dropped at the sudden realization of what this all meant. This very tragic event was about to change the world and my life as I knew it.  I felt a lump in my throat as tears welled up in my eyes.  Of all the emotions that now flooded me, despair was the one that was strongest.  My parents were the most powerful Warlock King & Witch Queen to have ever ruled Eternia, a powerful witch kingdom.  Tears of anger flowed down my cheeks as fury boiled deep inside of me.
“Who would do such a thing?” I said quietly, my voice now filled with anger and disgust.
In the background, I could hear soft sobs of the maid, who I still held closely to.  My younger brother Heath softly spoke up, “I do not know but whosoever done this will surely pay with their own life.” His voice was filled with the anger and fury that matched my own.
The red-headed beauty slowly walked over to my dead mother’s body and took her hands, softly. She said, “My dearest Aunt Zaleria” as she kissed my mother’s bloody hand. Tears running down her cheeks, she then steps away slowly and looks at me with great sorrow in her eyes. She touches my shoulder as she walks out of the room. For a brief moment, I could see into her very soul. I could tell my mother was someone of great importance to her.  I felt her sadness deep within my own body.  I felt her deep heartbreak, and it touched me.
The maid who was bawling in my arms has now calmed down, and left the room with the other maid who had fainted earlier.  It was just my brother and I left alone. We stood in silence looking at the bodies. Hot tears of anger were now flowing heavily down both our faces., but something in my peripheral vision caught my attention. In the far corner of the room was a black raven feather.  I walked over to it and slowly picked it up to study it.  A raven feather could only mean one thing: my Aunt Morgana. A raven feather was always her calling card and somehow, I got the feeling she had some sort of involvement in the grisly murder of my parents.
Within moments, our family security was now in the room. The head security officer was now taking over the scene.
“Your highnesses, we got here as soon as we heard. We are now investigating this matter. And our deepest condolences to you, for the deaths of your parents. Should you both ever need anything, we are here for you 24/7. We have also tightened security, and the palace is under lockdown till further notice. No one is allowed to leave or enter unless it is a true emergency.”
“Thank you, Mr. Blackthorn. Please keep us both up to date on anything and everything that you find out. I will also be looking into this myself.” I said.
My brother and I left the room so that the palace security could do their job and we headed towards our father’s study.  As we headed down the hall, we heard someone called out to us from a distance. It was the red-headed girl.  The mysterious woman who had addressed my mother as her aunt.
“I am sorry your royal highnesses, but I must speak with you immediately”
Agitated, my brother eyed her suspiciously. “What is this about and who are you?” he asked.
I was shocked by my brother’s behavior toward the young lady. Despite all that has just happened, I had not forgotten how to treat others with respect. My brother on the other hand tends to forget such things in matters such as these.

“I am your distant cousin Lavinia St. Germaine. I am of royal blood, from the kingdom of Lunar Crest. I was sent here for training? To learn to use and control my newly received powers.”

Excerpt: 


" He whispered in my ears, "I have been watching over you, your entire life and have fallen madly and deeply in love with you my sweet love. You are unlike any other I have ever met. You are so precious and so beautiful." As he gazed deeply into my eyes, I saw an intensity within his own, filled with such passion and desire. Lowering his head, he kissed me deeply while he removed my nightgown and panties. He then removed his own clothes, those piercing blue eyes of his feasting on my beautiful, curvaceous naked body.
He crawled back onto the bed to gaze into my eyes and whisper. "You have no idea how much I love you, Scerina my love. You not only have my heart but my soul as well” As his tongue slipped into my mouth, he entered me slowly and began to thrust deeply, I wrapped my legs around his waist and his hands gripped them to slide them higher.
He thrust deeply, hitting my womb with each intense thrust, making me cry out softly in pure pleasure and delight. Lowering his head, he gazed down at my breasts. He dragged his tongue across my hard, throbbing nipples, tasting the sweetness on them, flicking lightly at them, making them even harder and larger. He sank his fangs into their thickness and licked at the blood that flowed from them. He sucked on them, gently tugging on them. He lightly flicks my swollen, throbbing clit, and he thrusts deeper and slower. "

Silver Dagger Tours ~ Dragonhunters by Garon Whited


Dragonhunters
by Garon Whited
Genre: Epic Fantasy


You don't become a hero for the money. The money's nice, sure, but you become a hero because something inside compels you, drives you to it. Defending people from monsters simply doesn't pay well enough to make it a good career move.

As for hunting dragons... well, the money is usually good, but the job really bites.

A group of five professional heroes goes into the lair of the dragon. Who will win?

Spoiler: The dragon.

But it turns out killing a hero sometimes does nothing more than make him even more determined.

Sometimes, heroes are never more dangerous than when they're dead! 


Garon Whited was supposedly born in either 1969 or 1970; the original birth certificate is suspiciously unavailable and other records do not agree. 

After spending some years in college playing with computers, he finally joined a radical group of jellyfish herding nomads. Having fought zombie dolphins, quasi-corporeal spirits, and brain-sucking mole rats, he is uniquely qualified to write fantastic fiction. His subsequent attempts at professional salsa repairman and ley line salesman met with similar success. He claims to live in Texarkana, on Earth, but people have been known to disagree.

In between being a lovingly devoted mother and delivering babies, she writes stories that cross multiple genre lines- from Sci Fi to high fantasy, but all of her stories have thriller and strong romantic components.

Nicky Hjort hopes her stories might inspire you to find your inner creative genius.

As for her heroes- they are as varied and eclectic as her choice of narrative genres, but when pushed to list her favorite influences, she would say James Patterson, Barbara Kingsolver, Patricia Cornwell, Dean Koonntz, Gene Roddenberry, Shel Silverstein, Suzanne Collins, and Walt Disney.








Samantha JacobeyAnyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.

I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.

I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.

B.B. Raven
I am very stubborn and independent. I have a big heart and I love children. One of the reasons why I chose to contribute to the Shades of Fear Anthology is because it was for a charity that would help children with cancer. I had a very unstable childhood; my father was an alcoholic and my mother abandoned me. Thank goodness for my grandparents. My grandfather, who is now 78, is still a big part of my life. My son and I help take care of him. We are simple southern folk who enjoy collard greens and fried chicken on Sundays.

L.A. Remenicky is a wife and mother of two fur kids. A payroll professional by day, she writes out the stories in her head by night.

An avid reader all her life, she finally put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) during NaNoWriMo in 2012 and has never looked back. When she’s not typing away on her latest story with music playing in the background, she can usually be found spending time with her family and friends.


Desiree Scott
I have been writing since I was sixteen years old and love to write both horror and romantic suspense. I think there have been many influences within my life that has set me on the path that I can not help but walk. A few of those names consist of Karen Rose, Lisa Gardener, Nora Roberts, Cynthia Eden, Catherine Anderson, Laura Griffin, Andrea Kane, and Lisa Jackson, just to name a few. This list by no means defines by own writing but they have indeed influenced my desire to live outside of my own world and to create the thrill of my dreams. I live on 40 + acres in the SHOW ME state with my six year old daughter, with the wonderful addition of four dogs and a handful of chickens. The weather is unpredictable, but the surrounding beauty of the country helps my creativity as I sit on my top deck with my laptop and coffee close by. 






Unexplored possibilities and impossibilities have always fascinated Taya Wood. As a child she would stargaze most nights, wondering about the universe and imagining how things used to be, are, and could be in the future, so writing speculative fiction was inevitable. 

Having spent her former years as a graphic designer and life coach and then running a business assisting creative people to earn a living, Taya now writes magic realism and paranormal fantasy. 

She lives in an eco house in a forest with her husband, several kingfishers and kookaburras, a fishpond, some water dragons and a very large goanna.
