About All That’s Unspoken (Book 1)

revAllthatsUnspoken-Cphillips-LG copyAfter eight years, Hailey is back in Caseville, Michigan. Just months after her mother’s death, her siblings want to put their father in a nursing home and rent out the family farm. If that wasn’t enough, the prospective tenant is Nate, the high school crush she left behind the day after they acted on their mutual attraction.

After high school, Nate Jenkins planned to leave small town behind, but life dealt him a different hand of cards to play. He’s now back in Caseville, raising his daughter, and running his family’s diner. His daughter’s speech disorder has been improved by therapeutic horse riding and if he can lease the old Lambert farm, he can get her a horse of her own. The only standing in the way is Hailey, the same woman who left him eight years ago without even saying goodbye.

​Can they get over all that’s unspoken between them?

About All That’s Unrealized (Book 3)

AllThatsUnrealized-Cphillips-lg copyIt’s what the doctor ordered for Rhonda Gables, owner of three successful boutiques: four weeks of rest between winning this season’s Retail Project and claiming her prize. Rhonda must decide if being a TV reality show star is worth leaving behind her loved ones, including the increasingly appealing Trevor Collins.

In a month, fashion mogul and reality TV judge Conrad Ryse, of The Retail Project fame, has promised to take Rhonda Gables under his wing and invest in her fledgling career. That’s her grand prize after a winning season on his show. Too bad exhaustion has sent Rhonda out of her city apartment, away from her three successful boutiques, and into her cousin’s guest room for a month of recuperation in her hometown.

She’s on the cusp of everything she’s ever wanted, but what will it cost? Doctor’s orders be damned, she balks at first. But soon Rhonda is both delighted and disconcerted by the attentions of her friend-maybe-lover, Trevor Collins, and the contentment she is surrounded by back home. She must realize all she’s willing to compromise and all her heart truly desires.

She wants to see the Council fill the vacancy with someone who will be the voice of change. The prime candidate in her mind is the same choice of her heart: Tristan.

Too bad her Grandfather is the one man who stands in the way of both.

Guest Author Constance Phillips: What Is It About Paranormal?

My guest today is Constance Phillips, a fellow member of the Maumee Valley Romance Writers of America chapter, and author of Fairyproof and Resurrecting Harry, both published by Crescent Moon Press.

Thank you, Susana, for having me on your blog today! It’s such a pleasure to talk about why I love paranormal.

I think the most common piece of advice a new author receives from a mentor is to “write what you know.” In the case of fiction, it’s “write what you read.” It seems logical, and is the path I’ve chosen to follow, but sometimes it feels like the inevitable evolution of my craft, instead of a path to follow.

I started reading romances as a teenager.  While I always enjoyed sci-fi television shows and movies and loved darker, paranormal writings outside of the romance genre, it wasn’t until a friend introduced me to Laurel K. Hamilton and her Anita Blake and Merry Gentry characters that I developed a hunger for paranormal romance.

Hamilton was a gateway author. I devoured her early books, flying through the first eight or nine books of the Vampire Hunter series in a few short months. I then moved on to authors like Sherriyn Kenyon and J.R. Ward, to name only a couple.

The more I read, the more my writing changed. I tried to introduce some darker paranormal elements into a contemporary piece I’d been working on. Later, I crafted my first paranormal manuscript —a vampire story. Like most other “first manuscripts” it still lives in pieces on my hard drive, not quite ready for an audience yet.

It wasn’t that I wanted to recreate their stories, but more that I’d become such a fan of the paranormal element. In my mind it takes the concept of forbidden love to a higher level, and gives new meaning to the words tall and dark.

I do still write contemporary manuscripts, just as I still read contemporary romance, but was honored to have Crescent Moon Press publish my first book Fairyproof, a paranormal/urban fantasy this past September. They will also be releasing Resurrecting Harry on March 1.

Are you drawn to paranormal books? Who are some of your favorite authors?

Fairyproof

Fairyproof-200x300

When Monique finds out her brother, Kieran, is planning her future with the one fairy she wants nothing to do with, she seeks refuge in the human world. Now Kieran fears she will be the next victim in a string of murdered fairies and is determined to bring her home.

Hiding should be a breeze. She can control any human with a flirtatious smile and an attraction spell. Until she meets Daniel Elliot, the only human who’s immune to both.

A year ago, Daniel’s fiancée disappeared with the engagement ring, an Elliot family heirloom. He’s ready to move forward with his life, but his mother’s obsession with retrieving the ring makes that impossible. Then Monique walks into his office to apply for a job.

A Sneak Peak: Resurrecting Harry

Devastated by Harry Houdini’s unexpected death, his widow, Bess, clings to his promise to deliver a coded message from beyond the grave.  She’s determined to provide the bridge for him to cross, just like she assisted him on the stage, even if that means befriending her husband’s sworn enemy.

In order to save the only woman he’s ever loved from self-destruction, Harry puts his afterlife on the line by entering a wager with purgatory’s keeper, who gives Harry a younger face and body, and a new name: Erich Welch. Even with Harry’s soul and memories, Erich feels out-of-place and disconnected from everything he once called his own.

Will Erich be able to help Bess recover from her loss and will any good come from resurrecting Harry?
