Meet Me in the Middle
by Kelly Collins
Everyone knows sinfully sexy Miles Stevenson’s face. He’s the most famous movie star in the world… and every woman’s dream. When he unexpectedly pulls perfect stranger and grade schoolteacher Rachel Parks in for a passion-filled kiss, he ends up doing more than fooling the press.
Rachel is used to the opposite sex throwing themselves at her. What she isn’t used to are handsome strangers pulling her aside and covering her mouth with burning hot lips. But she decides to play along with Miles’s little game.
Incompatibility screams at every turn, but passion paves the way. Sometimes the road to each other is far too long, but the path is shorter if you meet in the middle. Will Miles’s worldwide fame get in the way of Rachel’s under-the-radar life, or will they find what they didn’t know they were looking for… each other?
by Angela Stevens

Need married in a hurry? Millionaire Partner, Inc. is here for you! Find the perfect companion to fulfill your needs, whether you’re looking for love or something else.
I’d saved myself for true love. I nearly had it before an accident irrevocably changed everything. A marriage broker is my only hope of survival. The man wanting to marry me, Byron Laserata, is intense, but I’m out of options. If I refuse his offer, I’ll be on the streets tomorrow. I can do this, right?
Father insists I marry and produce two heirs before inheriting the family business. Even though I’ve been running it for years, there’s no chance he’ll budge on this demand. Without a proper wife and kids, I’ll find myself outed in favor of my cousin. Olivia’s sweet and incredibly innocent. She’ll be perfect—easy to control and no chance she’ll demand things I can’t give. It’s the perfect solution. All I have to do is keep myself from developing feelings for my new bride. I can’t afford it. The business demands my full attention. However, there’s just something about her…
Content Warning: The Blissful Contracts Series is about overcoming past adversities and finding true love through those trials. Sensitive readers may be triggered by discussion of past traumas including mental or physical abuse, rape, or mental illness. Reader discretion is advised.
by Kimmie Easley
When you know you’re in love with the right person, and you know why, and you know it’s for all the right reasons, and you know they’re all good…
Well, you just know.
Or at least you think you do.
That’s not me.
I don’t recognize good. It’s too few and far between. It’s been that way my whole, entire life.
And, unfortunately for him, it’s also become Avette’s new version of normal, thanks to his unyielding love for me. My husband’s blinded to all of the yuck and disgust that fucks me up from the inside out.
It’s a talent or a gift. Maybe a curse. Whatever it is, it’s not one I possess.
But the worst part is I see what he wants.
He wants me to feel the same. To see him in the same light. But that’s not how my heart was created. I can’t feel or love the same way that he does.
Life doesn’t mean the same to me as it does to him.
No, not until my entire world changed.
Hi, I’m Trini Baker, and I’m an addict.

Your Book Might Suck…
But it doesn’t have to.
You are an awesome writer with an incredible fiction story the world needs to experience. But your book… well, it kind of sucks. So let’s fix that.
Setting your novel apart from the rest is a choice.
Fiction is more than a character doing stuff in a place you’ve invented. There are rules to magic and seasons to setting and double meanings to words, and a cadence to sentence structure if you want to write a book that doesn’t suck.
I guarantee you will find tricks and treats you’ve never heard or read before in any other writing book. If not, let me know and I’ll refund your money. But if I’m right, and my book helps you to write a novel that doesn’t suck, then I’m asking you, in return to leave a positive review. That’s fair, isn’t it?
Ready to get started? Great! There are questions with space to answer at the end of each chapter to help you along your journey. I’m super excited for you and wish you all the luck in writing your novel!

All Of My Every Things
by L. Bachman
This is not a normal poetry book. It is an exorcism of the soul. A poet will write about the highs and lows of their life in excruciating beautiful ways. Wrapping their pain with a ribbon to either be kept as a secret or presented. L. Bachman has gathered some of her most emotionally raw verses selected from a nineteen-year period of her life and is the first volume of complete non-fiction to date.
With bruised white knuckles, created by a humbled self-diagnosed battered and broken being on the road to healing and coping from a painful childhood. This is a display of work created to express personal struggles and surviving through periods of insomnia, moments of love, depression, anxiety, and healing.
Cover to cover you will read the inner workings of a reclusive introvert that has spent her lifetime trying to answer her own questions about who she is, what part she plays in life, and trying to heal from things she couldn’t. You will see into the mind of the woman known as L. Bachman through over thirty poems left up to the reader to interpret with an introduction by author KJ. Taylor.
At a young age, Lynn Lesher began writing and creating digital art, unaware these things would play such a powerful role in her life. Taking upon the pen name L. Bachman, she began putting her talents to good use in her publishing career. Firstly, she put her skills as a digital graphic artist and in 2015 she published her first book, Maxwell Demon, introducing the world to The Blasphemer Series. A series she began developing in her youth. This led to her second release, a short story titled Human Ouija, that garnered her being listed as a bestseller and went on to gain awarding from “Author’s Excellence Awards” for “Best Horror Story 2017”.
She continued as a freelance graphic artist throughout her career creating a network that led to her being involved in several anthologies for charitable causes. These shorter stories can still be found in various publications, including her work Little Lunacies. Bachman became known for her emotional darker style, through these shorts and her novels, that some called ‘gothic in nature’ and ‘reminisce of an older style of writing’.
In 2019 she released her first non-fiction poetry collection called All of My Every Things, that continued holding true to the style she’s become known for. This poetry collection has been called ‘an exorcism of a soul’ as it bears some of her most emotionally raw poems collected over nineteen years of her life.
