Teaching Tori by Annie Rehmann

Resized-RGB-Teaching-ToriTori has put up with Gerard’s bullying for so long, she is surprised when Tom, a visiting adviser to her school, turns into an ally she doesn’t really want. Fiercely independent and wary of people (except for children, of course), she is perfectly capable of dealing with Gerard by herself.
Despite her efforts to keep Tom at an arm’s length, he manages to gain her trust, and a tender relationship starts to form. A future with Tom looks certain until a misunderstanding leads Tori to pull away from him. When she recognises her mistake, it is too late to win him back.
The breakup affects her greatly, down to the one constant she could always fall back on in times of crisis: her love of teaching. Tori fails to meet her own high expectations of an inspiring teacher which leads her onto a downward spiral of feelings of inadequacy and guilt.
After weeks of misery, Tori takes to the hills of Central Otago to clear her head. High up in the tussock country she loves so much, she realises that it is time to move on and let go of the past.
The decision comes as a relief, but a sudden weather change gives Tori little time to dwell on it.
Will Tori make it home safely to put her decisions into action? And will Tom ever find out what happened to her?

Targeted Audience: women 21 and up

Author Bio:
Annie Rehmann grew up near Basel/Switzerland. In 1997, she and husband Ralph decided to make New Zealand their new home.
Annie has always had a love of language, especially writing. At school, she thrived on the challenge of expressing herself with clarity not only in her native German, but also in other languages. For a while, Annie aspired to be a journalist one day, but she decided that she wasn’t thick-skinned enough and instead trained as a primary teacher.
Annie started to write her own fiction, in English, a few years ago, resulting in her first novel “Teaching Tori”.
When Annie isn’t teaching, reading or writing, she spends time with Ralph and teenage daughter June on their off-grid solar powered house project. She loves tramping in the South Island with Ralph, June and her two dogs Freddie and Pepper.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This book started with a scene at the start – Tori is seeking refuge in the toilets after a verbal attack by her principal, and Tom, a visiting adviser to her school happens to see her. The characters and storyline grew from there. I wanted to write a book that I would love to read. It had to be compelling, and it had to move the reader.
I also wanted to give an insight into life as a teacher in New Zealand, and to share some of the wonderful scenery of the South Island.

Candy Houses by Shiloh Walker

candy-housesGrimm’s Circle, Book 1
Greta didn’t get her happy ending her first time around. And now that she’s a Grimm—special kind of guardian angel and official ass-kicker in the paranormal world—romance is hard to find. Besides, there’s only ever been one man who made her heart race, and the fact that he did scared her right out of his arms. Now Rip is back. And just in time too, because Greta needs his help.

On a mission he knows is going to test all of his strengths and skills, the last person Rip expected to see is the one woman who broke his heart. Working together seems to be their only hope. But, when faced with a danger neither of them anticipated, the question is, how will they face the danger to their hearts—assuming they survive, of course.

Warning: Dark, sexy, a little bit scary—this fairy tale is only for grownups and is best saved for bedtime.

Little Red Whore Hood by Burns Well

817o45pHxlL._SL1500“Little Red Whore Hood” is a parody of “Little Red Riding Hood”. It might make you laugh, it will probably make you vomit, and it will definitely cause you to question your faith in humanity. If you’re a little bitch who throws temper tantrums when your weak grip on reality gets a good shake, or if fiction gets you flustered, then I’m afraid you’re too much of a pussy to be allowed to read this book. So please save your money, so you can go buy a dildo and fuck yourself with it. Thank you very, very much.

Targeted Audience: 21+

Author Bio:
Not much is known about this author. Rumor has it that he wrote these books shortly before losing his mind. He now resides in an institution for the criminally insane at an undisclosed location. When he’s not writing books, he spends most of his time in a straight jacket.
