Cover Reveal January Black by Wendy Russo

Sixteen-year-old genius Matty Ducayn is the son of The Hill’s commandant. As such, he’s expected to conform to a strict, unspoken code of conduct. Small acts of defiance over years—such as walking on the grass—have earned him a reputation for being unruly. When sarcastic test answers finally get Matty expelled from school, King Hadrian offers him a diploma if he can answer a deceptively simple question, and then dismisses the only answer.

To prove his worth to society, Matty wrestles with the king’s word games, the kingdom’s historical record, and laws that don’t make sense. He meets Iris Locke, a street smart gardener, along the way. After enchanting him at a glance, Iris helps his research, keeps him out of trouble, and finally breaks his heart.

Alone again, Matty finds himself on collision course with a deadly law, one he will have to break to answer the king’s question. Was Hadrian challenging him, or teaching him a lesson? Without Iris, it won’t matter, because Matty won’t stand down for anyone else.

January Black is the 2013 Readers’ Favorite Silver Medal winner for YA-Coming of Age.

January Black will be available for pre-order on Amazon 11/28/2014.

About the Illustrator

Liliana Sanches started studying Visual Arts at the age of 16 and soon felt attracted to the Romantic artwork from the 19th century. The Pre-Raphaelites and Friedrich were her biggest inspirations at the time, and she felt compelled to explore this graphic language of desolated landscapes that were the reflection of the painter’s emotions.

After graduating college, specializing Graphic Design, she created her own business under the name of “Princess of Shadows.” Her style had now evolved and had technical knowledge to support it. Intricate concepts with a much better grasp of image composition and visual balance, and also used color and shape psychology to imprint her work on the viewer.

Along the years she has been working with musicians, authors and even other designers who have allowed her to express her creativity, develop visual communication skills and explore different graphic styles to better suit each project.

Nowadays, here personal work has been exploring the human psyche, imbuing it with a dark surreal feeling. Her biggest inspirations are J-Horror movies, dreams/ nightmares and mental health pathologies.

About the Author

Wendy S. Russo got her start writing in the sixth grade. That story involved a talisman with crystals that had to be found and assembled before bad things happened, and dialog that read like classroom roll call. Since then, she’s majored in journalism (for one semester), published poetry, taken a course on short novels, and watched most everything ever filmed by Quentin Tarantino. A Wyoming native transplanted in Baton Rouge, Wendy works for Louisiana State University as an IT analyst. She’s a wife, a mom, a Tiger, a Who Dat, and she falls asleep on her couch at 8:30 on weeknights.

Cover Reveal – A Broken Magic by Justin Macumber

A Broken Magic, book two in the Born of Fire series by Justin Macumber will be released December 1. Here is the lovely cover…


A Broken Magic

On a quest for domination, evil sorcerers from another land tore apart the barriers between our worlds, and the release of magical energy burned the Earth. Ten years later, a young woman named Skylar took control of the magic and used it to stop the sorcerers and seal the rift. Earth was saved.

Or so it seemed.

Now a new threat rises. Though the rift was closed, sorcerers from that distant land still lin in our world, and the greatest of them, Embreal, has vowed to open a new rift. Helping him is Cassandra, – a dark reflection of Skylar – who is devoted to him heart and soul. Will Skylar’s magic be enough to stop them? And, when she finally comes face to face with Cassandra, will she user her power against someone she so easily could have become?

“Justin Macumber’s Born of Fire series follows a very unique storyline and I love that it doesn’t feel just like every other book I’ve read. He has an amazing way of developing a universe that you can see. I am excited for what more is to come from Mr. Macumber.”
Amy Dale, author of OFF WITH HER HEART

“Justin Macumber knows how to master both action and character. His writing takes you to places you’ll want to go!”
Philippa Ballantine, author of WRAYTH, and HUNTER AND FOX

FLASHBACK to 1985 – the Last time the KC Royals were in the World Series

I’m from Kansas City and am thrilled to see the Royals make it to the World Series. I’ve done some reminiscing lately and thought I’d share some things from 1985 in celebration of them making the series.


In 1985 the Royals won the World Series, but here are a few other interesting tidbits that were happening the last time they made it to the big game.


*”Careless Whisper” by Wham was the top selling song.
*Back to the Future was the biggest grossing movie.
*Mammoth Hunters by Jean Auel was the bestselling novel.
*Out of Africa won best picture at the Oscars.
*Gorbachev became the Soviet leader.
*Bo Jackson won the Heisman trophy.
*The Cosby Show was the highest-rated TV show.


*”We Are the World” won Grammy awards for song and record of the year.
*Biloxi Blues won the Tony for best play.
*The top-selling cars were the Chevrolet Cavalier, Ford Escort, and Chevrolet Celebrity.
* The Winner of Super Bowl XIX was the San Francisco 49ers.


*The Domain Name System was created.
*Reagan was in his second term.
*New Coke was released.
*Live Aid was the biggest concert and raised money for famine relief in Ethiopia.
*Super Mario Bros was released.
*Calvin and Hobbes debuted.


*Tommy Hilfiger was established.
*DNA was first used in a criminal case.
*The world population was 4.8 billion.
*Kellan Lutz, Keira Knightley, Lily Allen, Lana del Ray, T Pain, Eva Longoria, Bruno Mars, and Kaley Cuoco Sweeting were born.
*Rock Hudson, Orson Welles and Yul Brenner died.


As for me, I was a sophomore / junior in high school. I drove a Chevy Citation piece of junk. I worked at Rax restaurant and then at Worlds of Fun amusement park. I loved Duran Duran and wanted to be a reporter when I grew up. Oh, and I was a Madonna wannabe.


A lot has changed since 1985, including Madonna, Tom Cruise and George Clooney. And there’s me. Let’s just move right along and cheer for the KC Royals of 2014, and put the mall bangs and the New Coke behind us. Far behind us.

Go Royals! #takethecrown #beroyal
