November Top! Prince of Death + GRL

For the month of November, we have a brand new book to dive into, words to write and we discuss our GRL experience (and the stupid roadtrip back).

We also get to announce formally that we're now part of the Frolic Podcast network! If you're into romance fiction of any flavor, the Frolic Podcast Network includes shows that feature book club style discussions, author interviews, comedy, critique, and fantastic conversations as well.

Jess was able to get some flash interviews with Beth Bolden, Kelly Fox and Maz Maddox. Check it out!

Gifted power over life and death, Lysandros has spent millennia in the underworld, listless and alone. The youngest child of Hades and Persephone, he’s been sheltered from the threats in the world above.

Theo Ward hasn’t been so lucky. After watching his mother wither away, he’d do almost anything to have her back. When a messenger appears at the Banneker College of Magic and offers the young professor a chance to save her, Theo can’t pass it up, even if it means going straight into the underworld and dragging her home. But Theo gets more than he bargained for when he crosses paths with the prince of Hades.

Set against the king of Olympus, they must shed their past burdens and learn to trust in each other, so they can face down a storm that threatens to wipe the nation’s capital off the map.

Side Banana:

This month is all about bringing out the writer in all of us!

If you're not familiar with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), here is their breakdown from their site:

"National Novel Writing Month began in 1999 as a daunting but straightforward challenge: to write 50,000 words of a novel during the thirty days of November.

Now, each year on November 1, hundreds of thousands of people around the world begin to write, determined to end the month with 50,000 words of a brand-new novel. You may know this mass creative explosion by the name National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo—but that's not all that NaNoWriMo is!"

Jess and I both are going to be diving into NaNo this year. If you're participating, let us know! We've love to hear about what you're writing.

Who is Duncan Reynolds? Pierce, the man claiming to be my husband says that’s me.

A racing heart and a need to breathe are my only memories when I wake in an unfamiliar room surrounded by strangers. With nothing else to go on, I have to trust the people around me to help me remember.

As days stretch into weeks, I know the reoccurring dreams of dark alleys and sinister shadows can’t be ignored, and the only person I have to help me is Pierce. With my memory slowly starting to return, I know things aren’t always as they seem. Will searching for the past lead me closer to my husband or toward the danger that’s lurking just out of sight?

Brittany Counoyer:

I was born in a small town in Alabama called Enterprise. I lived there with my mom, stepdad, and two older sisters until I was twelve years old. In 1997, the entire family relocated to Kokomo, Indiana where I currently reside. And no, the town is nothing like the Beach Boys song. Our reason for moving was because my stepdad was originally from Indiana, and he wanted to be closer to his family. The move was actually beneficial in a lot of ways, even though I still miss Alabama.

And just because I no longer live in the south, doesn’t mean I’m not a southern girl at heart. I still love to snack on boiled peanuts, and I do love grits—but only with butter, and salt and pepper.

Now, I currently work as a switchboard operator at a local hospital. During my spare time I thoroughly enjoy reading lots of books, and trying my hand at writing the stories in my head. I’ve had a love affair with books since I was a small child, and I even published my first young adult book when I was in my early twenties. I love spending time with my friends, whether in person or online, and family. I’m not married, nor do I have any children, but I do have a lot of nieces and nephews I love dearly.

I am also the proud mom of my fur-baby, Delilah. She was an unexpected addition to my household, and now I can’t imagine my life without her in it. Though, I can understand why people say Border Collies are the most hyperactive breed of dog—because it’s true!
