Targeted Audience: Adult readers/ Over 21

Author Bio:
An English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay's the English teacher cliché; she love cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.

She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, Marjorie, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.

Lindsay's goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she's done her job.

Lindsay's hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My husband is my everything, and I'm not afraid to admit that.
He is my rock when I feel like giving up or like I can't go on.
He is my source of laughter when everything's falling apart.
He is my fighter when something isn't fair.
He is my cheerleader when I feel like I'm losing.
He is my righter when I am wrong.
He is my focus when I lose sight of the bigger picture.
He is my reminder to go with the flow.
He is my shield from the painful aspects of life.
He is everything to me.
As a writer, I look for ideas that spark emotion. I want readers to feel every word of my writing. I want them to laugh with the characters, but I also want them to cry. Life isn't perfect, and neither is love. Sometimes it is the biggest source of pain.
To Say Goodbye came to be mostly out of fear…the fear of losing my husband. I got to thinking what life would be like if I were forced to face it without him, if tragedy struck. I thought about how hopeless I would feel, how I wouldn't ever know if could go on.
To Say Goodbye, in many ways, is a projection of one of my biggest fears. However, it's also a hopeful story. It shows that the human spirit is capable of amazing feats. The human heart, too, is able to achieve unimaginable triumphs.
Sophia's story is a story I hope I never have to live through. However, her story is also a reminder that even in our broken times, love both past and present can carry us through.

V.I.P by Tia Panipinto

Wren: Just a woman living life. She’s the best photographer at The Miami Beat, a music magazine that covers all the hottest bands.

Reaper: Smoking hot, bass playing, bad boy, for “9th Circle”, Miami’s hottest up-and-coming rock band.

When they meet, there’s mind numbing heat, great sex, and broken hearts.

Now, Wren, along with her best friend, Abby, have rules for dealing with the hot boys backstage. They never get attached. They never screw the same one more than once, and they never, ever, take them home.

Since her first encounter with Reaper, Wren has held tight to the rules, and looks at love and relationships through jaded eyes and a guarded heart. Two years later, Wren is on top of the world. That is, until she’s put on assignment covering “9th Circle” for their first big, headlining show. Wren never wants to fall in love again. Thankfully, what she has with Reaper isn’t love… at least…that’s what she keeps telling herself. Sometimes, there are just certain feelings you can’t ignore. No matter how much you want to. He was a mistake, but now, he may just be exactly what she needs.

My time as a freelance photographer for indie bands that performed at venues in New York, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C and Florida inspired the general idea for this book. The musicians, fans, club promoters and bouncers all had inspiration that went into the creation of this novel.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Believe it or not, I saw an ad on Facebook for an app to help men perform cunnilingus better. It was a comedy/joke, but that got me thinking about a woman who had never experienced an orgasm and what would it take to get her there.

I just wanted an outlet for my fantasies and experiences. Most of what you'll read are true events. The characters you'll read about are real people. I simply embellished some stories and did a lot of combining multiple people to make one character.

Deadly Sins: an organized crime thriller by Laura Read

DEADLY SINS is a dark crime thriller with a twisted love story at its heart.

Angela Balanescu, daughter of an organized crime boss, yearns to leave the town in which she grew up, instead of using drink and sex as escapism. Her father feeds on power, solely focused on how he can gain more territory. Vincent, her father’s lieutenant, feels no remorse torturing and killing those who betray the family.

When Angela develops feelings for corrupt detective Sean, she wonders whether she can learn to trust him and put a life of crime behind her. But Vincent wants her for himself, and she is drawn deeper into family politics. Soon she is plotting to kill her father’s partner, and she is forced to choose between staying to help her family and leaving to start a new life.

Targeted Audience: 21+

Author Bio:
I've worked in publishing for over seven years, as a designer for a journal and its award-winning website, and now as an author and freelance designer. My poetry has been published in two anthologies.

DEADLY SINS is my debut novel – an exploration of the sexism that can permeate families and how sin can influence us all. My next book will be about a political affair.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
DEADLY SINS is an organized crime thriller/romantic suspense, which explores the sexism that can permeate families and how sin can influence us all. I wanted to write something dark that crosses genres and focuses on a female protagonist who wants more power. My protagonist, Angela, feels powerless because she's the boss's daughter, and she uses drink and sex to escape her life. She falls for a corrupt detective and faces a choice between staying to help her family and leaving to start a new life. It's similar to THE SOPRANOS but told mainly from a female perspective.
