Moment's That Define Us Amy McKinley E-Book.jpg

Some days are a gift, while others are a lesson in survival.

Every day Jack spends with his girlfriend Jenni, feels like it could be the last. Her brother, Rex, is the local big shot drug dealer who’s gunning for him because he’s dating his baby sister—and he hates Jack.

Homeless, Jack lives in an abandoned warehouse with five guys who’ve somehow morphed into more than just a crew, they’re family. Living in the slums of California, they can’t fix everything, but they’ve vowed to protect their community and the nearby high school from becoming prey to Rex’s gang. They’ve always policed their own—until Rex takes things to the next level.

When territory wars turn to murder, they have two options:  weapon up or strike a deal before Rex wipes their futures off the map.

Eye of the Storm by Amy McKinley

He wakes tangled amidst branches and parachute lines. Injured and upside down in a tree. With no memory of who he is or why he is there. If that weren’t bad enough, he finds himself in the most dangerous place in the Western Hemisphere.

But that was the first time…

This time when he wakes, it’s the same scenario—with a new twist, a beautiful and exotic woman tells him his name. Can he trust her?

After all, Chris Shaw can’t remember anything. And the mysterious Mari Dias may be his only weapon against the dangerous drug lords who will stop at nothing to destroy him. But Mari has secrets of her own…

As Chris and Mari search for sanctuary out of the jungle, filters of his past return in slow increments. Suddenly, Chris’ enemies are closer than he ever realized. Can he battle the storm that threatens them all?

The King of Horror

When we learned Stephen King was going on tour it was an opportunity we didn’t want to miss. I mean…Stephen King!Screen Shot 2016-06-14 at 4.40.15 PM

Ryman line            It took almost eight hours to drive to Nashville, Tennessee, where our tickets were. His End of Watch tour was being held at the Ryman Auditorium and the line to get in wrapped around the building. We stood in the 100-degree weather waiting with the rest of the audience for entrance into the sold out show. Approximately 2400 people filled the auditorium.

He didn’t disappoint. For quite some time Mr. King entertained us with engaging stories from his youth and adult life, as well as details of his writing career. He talked about what it was like growing up in a small community, how his experiences influenced him, his failures, and his successes.

Synopsis

Forged through trauma and cursed by the Fates, Layla evolves into a mortiferous weapon. When the prophecy activates, what is honed for protection becomes a misused tool for death.

Entrenched in clan turmoil, Thaull’s life hangs at a precipice with the onset of the soul-divide. But when a premonition of a deadly female offers hope, he gambles his very existence.

She will go dark from her curse. He will go numb from his. To survive, Layla must risk trusting another or become another.
