The Bitch Majestic by Judith Chambers

By day she is a thirty-two year old business woman.
By night she is a dedicated homewrecker.
The dreaded “other woman”.

Don’t judge her before you’ve read her story.

The Bitch Majestic is an erotic and darkly romantic journey into adultery, sex magic, and high society lust and Judith Chambers is the ultimate female predator, beautiful, wealthy, intelligent, with almost zero empathy for the men she seduces or the wives they leave behind.

Targeted Audience: Adult

Author Bio:
I'm a former marketing exec from the Cotswolds in South Central England, but I gave all that up to write erotica and dark romance, and so far I haven't had a single reason to regret my decision.

I don't write easy, let-you-off-the-hook "bubblegum" romance. I like to fill my books with real people, nuanced relationships, credible dialogue, the kind of stuff that makes the tension seem so much sweeter for being so much more believable.

Having said that I do declare myself a fan of all types of romance, and I'm an avid reader of high-brow erotica, I love alpha males, sweaty couplings in dimly lit rooms, and lots of raunchy talk. I have a tropical vocabulary, filled with hot sweaty vowels and moist juicy consonants.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Every woman has a little of the character of Judith Chambers in them, every woman has a dark side, I based a lot of the stuff in The Bitch Majestic on real life experiences, but then again a lot of it is pure fiction, and I'll darned if I ever tell you which is which.

Drowning in the Shallow End by Charlie Mellor

Darker-Amazon-650-x-1009A darkly comic true story about obsessive infatuation, revealing the depths to which people can sink, before they realise they’re in too deep…

For years, all Charlie Mellor wanted was to meet the alluring Pennie Fenton. Unfortunately for him, this wish came true. Captivation with the corrupting Miss Fenton soon developed into an overpowering obsession which sent his life spiralling out of control and jeopardised everything he held dear. It was because of Miss Fenton that he lost touch with his family and friends, got involved with the occult, upset members of the Greek Underworld and even volunteered one of his own fingers to be crushed by a sadistic stranger. Before he could free himself from her curious charms, he would need to acknowledge her real identity and expose the deep, dark secret she had kept hidden from him. Only then, would he find the courage to rebuild himself through a bizarre appearance on national television, where in front of millions of viewers, he would abandon all dignity and reveal the full extent of his downfall.

This candid tale chronicles one man’s epic struggle to free himself from a cruel and manipulative companion. Peppered with black humor, it unveils the damaging impact of an unyielding obsession. Positioned as an offbeat tale of misplaced mesmerisation, the memoir taps into the universal themes of temptation, desire and infatuation. It includes irreverent observations on life, loss and the enormous void between these two. Only at the end of the book do readers see that nothing is quite what it seems and this is in fact, a modern day parable about the redeeming power of love.

Targeted Audience: Adult readers with an interest in darkly obsessive mysteries

Author Bio:
Charlie Mellor was born in Lancashire in the UK, loves spicy fajitas, stand-up comedy and vinyl. A recovering catholic, he now lives in Lincolnshire with his wife and four children. Prior to his current job in training and development, he worked in the publishing industry, designing headlines for regional newspapers.

He would like it known that he no longer sees Pennie Fenton. She is not welcome at his house or in the general proximity of anyone he cares about. Because of her legacy, he has reluctantly been forced to change the names and details of many people in this book – in order to place them outside Pennie Fenton’s circle of influence. While it has taken Charlie until now to build up sufficient courage to admit to others that he knew her well; he can appreciate that many of his friends remain incredibly uncomfortable with such a declaration. He understands that for some, the cost of such a disclosure, would, even in these enlightened times, be far too great.
