I fell in love with the slayer sent to destroy me. 

Morgan Taylor-Jackson can't wait for high school to end. In six months she leaves for UCLA and says goodbye to La Jolla, California and her parents' messy divorce. But when Morgan is bitten by a four-year-old boy, she becomes infected with a mysterious condition. Fever, insomnia, and a new bustline are only the beginning; Morgan morphs from nerd to bombshell.

As far as Van Xander is concerned, all vampires are evil, even the ones who reject human sacrifice and call themselves Puritans. When Helsing Incorporated sends Van to La Jolla to investigate the local coven, Morgan is his prime target. Pretending to be interested in her, Van asks Morgan out and puts her through a series of tests to determine her killer nature.

Morgan is thrilled to be dating a hot guy like Van and falls for him hard. As Van strings Morgan along, he grows increasingly guilty. Morgan is kind, compassionate, and a gooey romantic. Just as Van's mind begins to change, evil forces threaten everything. When prom night arrives, there are only two ways out of the ballroom: death or immortality. 
Now on to the scenes!

Top 4 favorite scenes and why.

Scene #1 Morgan is bitten.
“Hello, Morgan.” Daris wore footed pajamas with dinosaurs on them.
“Um, hi.”
“I want to tell you a secret.”
“Great.” I tried to walk past Daris and into the hallway, but he blocked my path. Do preschoolers not understand about privacy?
“Bend down so I can tell you my secret.” Daris cupped his hands around his mouth like he was going to whisper something.
“Okay.” I scrunched down so I’d be at his level.
Chomp! Razor-sharp teeth sank into my neck.

Louise: I love this scene because of the joke about preschoolers not understanding about privacy. When my nieces were little, they used to try to follow me into the bathroom all the time. Nobody wants an audience when they pee!

Scene #2 Van and his sister Cassandra squabble.
“What I want to know,” said Cassandra, “is where was Morgan yesterday afternoon when you were in Carlsbad slaying the undead?”
“I don’t know,” I answered. “I haven’t had time to check my phone yet. We just got home twenty minutes ago.”
“At least you used that time to shower.” Cassandra made a dramatic display of sniffing the air around me. “Irish Spring. I approve.”
“You’re the one who stocks the soap. I use whatever’s available.”
“When you remember to use soap.”
“I don’t have time for you to annoy me.” I tossed her my phone. “Check up on Morgan while I go brush my teeth.”
“Another gold star for personal hygiene!” Cassandra called after me.

Louise: Van is a nineteen-year-old slayer and Cassandra is his fifteen-year-old sister who keeps him in line. I love the brother and sister scenes because Van and Cassandra crack jokes at the other person's expense but are also extremely loyal to one another. In BITE ME Van knows that he can count on Cassandra to keep him organized, and in SLAY ME, book three of The Puritan Coven, Cassandra runs into romantic trouble and Van comes to her rescue.

Scene #3 Morgan and Grandma Mimi go bra shopping.
Grandma Mimi tugged at the baby pink tank top I was trying on and tsk-tsked. “It’s like you developed overnight.”
There in the fluorescent light of the Nordstrom dressing room, I looked paler than milk. “Do we have to talk about this?”
“I blame all that soy your mother feeds you. It’s doing wacky things to your breast development. We need to get you properly fitted for new bras.” She poked her head out of the dressing room and called for an attendant. “My granddaughter needs her boobs measured.”

Louise:  This scene makes me laugh because every girl who has ever gone bra shopping for the first time probably remembers being equally mortified.

Scene #4 Promageddon.
I surveyed the chaos around me. Bodies littered the ballroom floor. The survivors crowded in the corner, next to the entrance, cornered by a woman in white.
I twisted the vampire’s neck and felt relief when I heard the bones break. But no sooner had I slain this vamp than another monster lumbered toward me.
Armageddon or Promageddon? This was going to be a long night.


Louise: I don't want to giveaway spoilers, but I've been clear all along that BITE ME ends with a spectacular Promageddon scene. It's like the movie CARRIE, but funny. I had loads of fun writing it, even though some of my favorite characters met an untimely demise.





About Louise:
Louise Cypress believes in friendship, true love, and the everlasting power of books. She has never met a vampire, but she has been to a Love Sucks concert on Valentine’s Day. Louise can often be found curled up with a romance novel on Saturday night, diet soda in hand, secretly wishing bustles were back in fashion. Louise lives in San Diego, California, where the beach is crowded and summer is immortal.

Purity cannot abide the darkness.

It’s been two years since Ellison defeated her stepsisters and sent her evil stepmother back into the Abyss.

Though she’s learning to control her dark magic and has spent time traveling with Prince William and bringing peace to the kingdom, one fact remains. She is a necromancer and he is a paladin of light. And so, the king refuses to give his blessing for them to marry.

To appease his father, William has begun to avoid her. But when even her younger brother Edward grows distant, Ellison learns her mother’s spirit has been visiting Edward in secret, threatening to overwhelm him with her own loneliness and longing. When Ellison accidentally touches her mother’s spirit, her tainted touch condemns her mother’s spirit to eternal damnation.

Ellison resolves to descend into hell to save her mother’s soul and bring her physical body back to the world of the living. William hopes this good deed will bring Ellison into favor and finally allow them to be wed.

But the journey through hell is fraught with peril. Temptations abound and the demons Ellison sent back to the Abyss are thirsty for revenge.

Evil cannot be defeated without sacrifice—but when that sacrifice means choosing between the ones Ellison loves and her very own life, how far is she willing to go to make her family whole again?


About Book 1:
Title: CINDERELLA NECROMANCER
Author: F.M. Boughan
Pub. Date: September 5, 2017
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC
Pages: 324
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Find it: AmazonB&N,  iBooksTBDGoodreads

CINDERELLA,NECROMANCER is CHIME meets ANNA, DRESSED IN BLOOD and was inspired by a real medieval grimoire of necromancy from 15th-century Germany.

Ellison lost her mother at an early age. But since then, her father has found love again. He’s happy and doesn’t quite notice that Ellison does not get along with his new wife or her mean daughters.

When Ellison discovers a necromantic tome while traveling the secret passages of her father’s mansion, she wonders if it could be the key to her freedom.

Until then, she must master her dark new power, even as her stepmother makes her a servant in her own home. And when her younger brother falls incurably ill, Ellison will do anything to ease his pain, including falling prey to her stepmother and stepsisters’ every whim and fancy.

Stumbling into a chance meeting of Prince William during a secret visit to her mother’s grave feels like a trick of fate when her stepmother refuses to allow Ellison to attend a palace festival.

But what if Ellison could see the kind and handsome prince once more? What if she could attend the festival? What if she could have everything she ever wanted and deserved by conjuring spirits to take revenge on her cruel stepmother?

As Ellison’s power grows, she loses control over the evil spirits meant to do her bidding. And as they begin to exert their own power over Ellison, she will have to decide whether it is she or her stepmother who is the true monster. 
Exclusive Excerpt
William’s panic was plainly engraved across his features. “I won’t let them do this to you. You’re my betrothed. You belong here in the palace, by my side, not shackled in the dungeon.”

He should have known as well as I did that a prison couldn’t hold me, but seeing the disgust on his father’s face … well, there was a greater plot at play than I understood, and I didn’t want William to suffer even more for my sake than I already asked of him.

“It’s all right.” I released my conjured spirit, permitting its return beyond the veil. It slipped through a seam in the air and the soldiers didn’t waste a moment before placing the restraints around my wrists.

“I’ll have you out as fast as I can,” William said, placing a chaste and yet defiant kiss on my forehead. He lingered, and so in my own surge of defiance—oh, my damnable soul, I cannot explain why I do these things—I lifted my head to slide my mouth upon his. His lips were soft and tasted of sweet wine, and I felt him press against me without hesitation.

It had been so long. I wished to sink into the earth with him then and there and remain that way for all time, but gasps arose from the assembled guests and a tug at my sleeve pulled us apart. The soldiers had grasped my shoulders and arms to drag me from William, who watched, still stricken and unable to calm his emotions, as I was pulled from the Great Hall.

As the doors swung closed behind me, my mother’s face came once again to mind. Without William, I wouldn’t be able to help her. I would never see her again, and she might spend all eternity enduring new tortures—horrors unimaginable, paying for sins she did not commit—alongside the most abhorrent dregs of humanity.

I could not allow it. How much was I willing to give?

About F.M. Boughan:

F.M. Boughan is a bibliophile, a writer, and an unabashed parrot enthusiast. She can often be found writing in local coffee shops, namely because it’s hard to concentrate with a cat lying on the keyboard and a small, colorful parrot screaming into her ear. Her work is somewhat dark, somewhat violent, somewhat hopeful, and always contains a hint of magic.

You can follow Faith on Twitter (@FaithBoughan) for plenty of flailing about food (she likes to cook!), TV shows (she watches too many), and world dance (did you know she's been performing & instructing in Bollywood-style dance for over 8 years?).

Or catch her on Facebook where she just might post pictures of her adorable cat & bird... among other things.

‘Your race destroyed my people. Why should we help you?” 

The forgotten have learnt to fight in order to survive and keep themselves safe within the banished land of Caspa. Rejected for being hybrids, no one spares them a thought. That is until a dragon shifter appears in their land. 

Ash, the son of the dragon king, seeks the leader of the forgotten, hoping to gain her help ridding his land of evil. Only he didn’t bank on the leader being a half-phoenix, half-angel female. 

Ember remembers what Ash’s people did to her home, and she does not forgive easily. Ash soon realises that not only does he have to gain her trust, but the trust of her three most loyal, hybrid protectors: Obe a Fae-Hellhound, Morgan an Elf-Peagsus, and Jaxe a Demon-Basilisk.

But evil is not just out to destroy the dragons. He wants all the lands and he will not stop until he gets them.

Can Ash convince Ember and her hybrid army to help him? Or will the shame of the past be too much to forgive?

Embers of shame is the first book in the forgotten race series. A new epic fantasy that is a must read for fans of Eragon, Game of thrones and Lord of the rings.

Blog Tour- THE ARCHIVIST by Christy Sloat An Excerpt & Giveaway!


Hey everyone! I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the blog tour for THE VENERATE ORDER by Troy Dukart! 

I have an interview with Troy to share with you today! And make sure to enter the giveaway below!


Haven't heard of THE VENERATE ORDER? Check it out!



Title: THE ARCHIVIST (The Librarian Chronicles #2)
Author: Christy Sloat
Pub. Date: May 28, 2018
Publisher: CHBB Publishing
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Pages: ?
Find it: Goodreads
"With the whimsy of Alice in Wonderland and the romance of Outlander dive back into the next installment in the Librarian Chronicles."

Savannah Preston has a rare and precious gift: The ability to time travel through books. She, and others who share this unique ability, are faced with the insurmountable task of preserving history. They are known collectively as The Librarians.

While researching infamous Scottish outlaw Sir Malcolm Wash during the raging conflicts of the 14th Century, Savannah loses the only thing that tethers her to her own time. She must rely on her knowledge of both the present and the past to survive long enough to find a way home. Along the way, she enlists the help of a misfit named Eoin. With his guidance, she might just get home. It’s a risky and dangerous adventure, but then, so is Eoin…

Now on to the excerpt!

The most important research was kept inside the blank pages of a book. Each mission yielded a new book. Once that book was full and our mission complete, it was sealed. I’m a Librarian, but not in the typical sense. I haven’t earned the proper diploma to get such a title. I, along with many others throughout the world, preserve the history of some of the most famous historical figures inside the blank pages of each book we are sent. The Librarians was founded by a famous scientist, Harold Lockhart. Lockhart wrote the formula for time travel in the only thing he had near him when it was fresh in his brain. That book wasn’t empty, it happened to be the history of none other than, Abraham Lincoln. After he wrote the formula, he was whisked away in time and came face to face with Lincoln himself. The talent to travel and record history was never his intention, but after he realized how wrong historians were about the president, he created the group of Librarians. Lockhart put us in charge of libraries and their books. The sect of Librarians were given their jobs and they went to work straight away.

I myself hope to achieve the goal of working in a library with the official title someday, which is what I’m studying in school. My intention is to host my own library and help archive important time periods through my research as well as artifacts, like my grandma did. Like all the women did who came before her.

All I know about my job before I travel is who I’m to research. Everything else is learned while I’m inside the book, or in other words, the past.


I’m forbidden to change history by becoming involved in the past or with my target. 

But I can become friendly with them and immerse myself in their world. It’s hard not to become part of it. While I’m there I am more than just a girl recording the true history.





About Christy:
I am Southern California native, now living in New Jersey! How did that happen? I am married and have  two beautiful little girls who love to read just like Mommy. I have had a passion for books since I was a little girl and an imagination for just as long. I hope my books can inspire others to read and to write too.
