Monster Mash Book Blitz Countdown Event Flintlock by Ashley Nixon @AshleymNixon

Flintlock

by Ashley Nixon

 

 

Flintlock is the second book in the Cutlass Trilogy. It continues Barren and his crew’s story.
Barren Reed hopes to protect the Orient from his tyrant uncle, but his plans to make the King’s life a living hell aren’t supported by the Elders of the pirate community. As it stands, Barren has earned the Elders’ disdain for his carelessness, and they threaten him into exile if he makes one more mistake.
Barren’s not the only one feeling the Elders’ wrath—they don’t trust Larkin either. Worse, Barren can’t comprehend Larkin’s wish to have a relationship with her father, and the secrets she’s forced to keep create a tension that may pull them apart forever.
When the Pirates of Silver Crest begin to die, bullets laced with dark magic are to blame. With more and more of these weapons infiltrating the Underground, discovering who’s behind the dissemination is no easy feat. As fear and tension mount among the people of the Orient, Barren and his crew find themselves in a race against time to stop the spread of dark magic before the world of Mariana spirals into collapse.

Ashley was born and raised in Oklahoma, where the wind really does sweep down the plains, and horses and carriages aren’t used as much as she’d like. When she’s not writing (haha, like that EVER happens!), she’s probably working out or pretending she’s Sherlock Holmes. Her obsession with writing began after reading the Lord of the Rings in the eighth grade. Since then, she’s loved everything Fantasy–resulting in an unhealthy obsession with the ‘geek’ tab on Pinterest, where all things awesome go.

Ready for a fun snippet reading from the author!?!
Now for a fun look at Ashley’s next coming up book:
Nacoma Knight (possibly soon to be Shadow Knight)
Here is a fun snippet to peak your interest.

I stare at the massive school from the passenger side of my mom’s small Ford Focus. The largest part of the building extends across the landscape, practically barring anyone from the woods behind it. A wide set of marble steps led to four rounded wooden doors marking entrances to the school. The main building has four levels—the very top has stained-glassed windows. At random intervals, angels and gargoyles look down upon all who enter, their dark eyes hollow and hooded.

There’s also a dead girl hanging from a rope above the four doors. I close my eyes tightly, but when I open them again, she’s still there.

She’s not really there, of course—only I can see her. It tells me that people have died at this school. It’s also a reminder that the problems my mother and I tried to escape in Chicago have followed me to good ol’ Oklahoma. Who would have thought?

“Would you like me to walk you to the door?” My mom asks, humored. I turn forward in my seat and look at her. She’s wearing a button up shirt and a pencil skirt. Luckily, she was able to find a job as a leasing agent pretty fast.  

“No, mom, that’s all I need on my first day of school.”

She looks sympathetic. “Anora, honey, I know it’s not like your other schools, but this will be good for you.”

That was my queue to leave before she found out it probably wasn’t going to be good for me. I open the door and step out.

“Pick you up after school!” she calls and I close the door.

She drives off and it’s just me, the school, and the dead girl.

I sigh. “Well, crap.”

Find out what others are saying about the Campus Killer

Author Andrew Hess captivated me from the moment I started reading this story. I loved how he moved between the heroine Ali Ryan’s point of view and the killers. Getting lost in both of their heads as they tried to outsmart one another was thrilling. This book is an absolute page turner as Ali Ryan chase after the killer. I could not help but gasp and hold my breath during a few of the scenes. ~Sarah Reads

I love reading different genres of books but very rarely do I read a good crime mystery, until now…. It reminded me of watching CSI or NCIS. It kept me on the edge of my seat and had me shouting at some of the scenes in the book. ~Linda Luscious Literature

Ends like a Hitchcock movie. Excellent plot and development of characters; mystery and suspense unpredictable and engaging. ~Dee Archer

I admit that I haven’t read a lot of crime thriller, but if they were all like this one, I think I’d read more. ~Toinette Thomas

Andrew Hess is a resident of Long Island New York. He debuted his first book, Chamber of souls, in 2011. The Chamber was a unique free verse poetry book that depicted the struggles of man as he falls into his own self wallowing journey while struggling to find himself. Hess followed this up with another book of poetry which showed a much darker side called; Hall of the Forgotten.
Hess has a love for mystery novels which was apparent by him taking a stab at a fictional government conspiracy series; The Phoenix Blade. This series has taken readers by storm by showcasing a group of vigilante 20 year olds that have been hired by the government to rid the country of people that have evaded justice. The Phoenix Blade currently has released the third installment of the series and was awarded Best Series of 2014 by Indie Author Books.
Despite living most of his life on Long Island, Andrew also spent five years living in the Ulster and Dutchess County areas and returns several times a year. His return trips have inspired him to create another intense series depicting a female detective named Ali Ryan called, Campus Killer.
Hess is an avid blogger at TheWritersRevolution13.blogspot.com where he promotes and interviews other authors as well as reviewing books of all genres. He has partnered up with several companies to help showcase authors from all over the world.
Hess is also a frequent guest on the Anthony Charles Podcast, a show dedicated to creative professionals as they give insight into their works and the lives they lead; guests have included authors, comedians, musicians, stuntmen, actors and producers.
 
Q and A With Author Andrew Hess
When did you know you wanted to write books?
I always had a fascination with writing, but didn’t really give it serious thought until the 2004-2005 school year. I was in college and was taking a literary course. That’s when the idea for my first novel took form and decided I wanted to be an author. The next semester I took a creative writing course and showed my professor some of my poetry and chapters for my books. He thought they were good but would need a lot of work. He saw potential in me, and that solidified my desire to become an author.

I have one of those brains that won’t turn off at night. Many nights I would distract my intellect by revamping a movie, book or TV show in my mind. I would twist and turn the plots and characters to achieve the ending I preferred. That developed into side stories about my favorite minor characters. Each night I fell asleep in the middle of a grand adventure. It wasn’t long before I began to create stories of my own and put pen to paper.

I love a good adventure. I love a good romance. As the mother of seven children, I also learned to love to play video games. One day it occurred to me to write an adventure that flowed like a video game and I added a touch of romance. Thus, Hypnotic Journey was born. The HJ characters are like a family to me. They are foolish, daring, resourceful, passionate and dedicated to their friends.

My love for Science Fiction gave birth to the Treborel Series. It’s a paranormal Sci-Fi romance featuring a psychotic villain and a multiple layer of hero’s fighting to survive the chaos.

I write about how friendship and love can carry you through situations that you might not otherwise survive. You will find my stories exciting and steamy, but I am not an erotic writer. My stories fade to dark when the steam begins to rise, but take it from me, the steam does rise and emotions do soar.

Now for some fun interview questions!

Is there a message you would like readers to get out of this book?

Widow’s Rule is about moving on with your life after a devastating loss and not being afraid to lean on your friends in dark times. Whitney is a strong independant woman who took her deceased sister’s children to raise then lost her husband in an active shooter incident. She’s determined to make it on her own but things grow quickly out of control when an outside force threatens her and her family.

Snippet Time!

 

Whitney checked her email one last time before shutting down her office computer. Ten days ago Veronica promised to email her Juliette’s personal information. Whitney sighed and checked her phone- no emails, no calls, and no text messages. The screen went dark and she sat it on her desk. Opening her desk file drawer, Whitney frowned at Veronica’s file. She needed a fireproof filing cabinet with a secure lock if she was going to store sensitive documents.

She pulled Veronica’s file from her drawer and headed toward Josh’s office at the end of the hallway. He was on the phone when she entered. She waved at him and opened the long filing cabinet that was nearly as tall as she and ran down the entire length of Josh’s wall. She sat Veronica’s file inside and closed the drawer. A quick wave goodbye to Josh and she headed back to her office to grab her purse.

“Whitney, hang on,” Josh called after her in an urgent voice.

She turned to look at him and he waved her back. When she entered the room, he placed his palm over the receiver and said, “Close the door, we need to talk.”

Whitney shut the door behind her and sat down in front of his desk wondering which of his deals were about to turn sour. He hung up the phone and locked eyes with her. “Whit, that was Warren Stevenson, Veronica died last night.”

Whitney stared at him in stunned silence.

Josh continued, “Warren said it happened around 2 o’clock this morning. He thinks she was heading downstairs to make some warm milk. She apparently did that quite often when she couldn’t sleep. She must have tripped or stumbled on the stairs and broke her neck. When her man Roger found her this morning, she was gone.”

“I can’t believe this,” Whitney stammered. “Veronica was just here. She was supposed to call me this week…” An iron claw squeezed her heart forcing the breath from her lungs. Why couldn’t death leave her alone?
