Check out Canopy by Liz Faraim

 
I thought I'd post about another lesfic author, Liz Faraim's book, Canopy.

The author has the following warning's posted about the book that I thought were appropriate to post: "This book contains sexually explicit material which is only suitable for mature readers, graphic violence, self-harm, abuse of a child by a parent, abuse by a sibling, alcohol abuse, and PTSD."

What's the story about?  Glad you asked.

Vivian Chastain is an adrenaline addicted veteran transitioning to civilian life in Sacramento, California. She settles into a new routine while she finishes up college and works as a bartender, covering up her intense anxiety with fake bravado and swagger. All Vivian wants is peace and quiet, but her whole trajectory changes when she stumbles upon a heinous crime in progress, and has to fight for her life to get away.


While recovering from the fight, she falls in love with someone who is tall in stature but short on emotional intelligence, and this toxic union provides Vivian the relationship that she thinks she needs. Given Vivian’s insecurities and traumatic past, she clings to the relationship even while it destroys her.

Prone to fits of rage, the spiraling of Vivian’s temper creates a turning point for her as she looks within to find the peace she seeks.


Vivian’s alcoholic brother and emotionally devoid mother serve as frequent thorns in her side, prompting her turbulent history to often bubble up to the surface. The bubbling turns to a rolling boil when Vivian’s brother lands himself in jail for drunken indiscretions, and not long afterward her partner is arrested for something so atrocious Vivian cannot even fathom it. She is left pondering whether or not to believe that the person she loves could have committed such an inexcusable crime.


Vivian’s relationships are strained to their breaking points as she continues to seek balance. She turns to her best friend for support, only to be left empty handed and alone until she finds comradery and care from the last person she would have thought.

Emily Monroe is NOT the Chosen One: The Complete Anthology!

Emily Monroe is NOT the Chosen One: The Complete Anthology

On October 18, 2020 my imaginary pet platypus, Frank, collected the three books of the Emily Monroe saga into one convenient set, and the Emily Monroe is NOT the Chosen One: Complete Anthology was born and added at Amazon.com! It features all three novellas in one book! Paperbacks are available as well!


Emily Monroe is NOT the Chosen One is a tongue in cheek, superhero parody that irreverently pokes fun at superheroes in general. Emily has the misfortune to look like Big City's superhero darling, the Chosen One, so villains come out of the woodwork to try to fight her. Nobody will listen when she tries to tell them that she is not the Chosen One. Super deeds, no cape required.

---
The complete anthology of the Emily Monroe is NOT the Chosen one novella series. You will find the entire trilogy of Emily Monroe's misadventures as a normal girl in a super powered world in this book.

Book 1 – Night Shift
Book 2 – Unchosen
Book 3 – Re-Chosen

So buckle up and enjoy an anti-apologetic, anti-hero, heroine as she fights injustice, one burger at a time.

---

You will be snorting and giggling along with Emily's misadventures.

I can't believe how awesome you people are... the anthology made its way onto the bestseller list in no time at all! I can't begin to tell you how amazing you are!
As always, I'd like to thank you all for coming on this journey with me, and I'd love and appreciate any feedback, positive or negative. I also accept models of the sphinx made of macaroni and cheese.
I'd love to hear feedback from YOU about the story and characters of the anthology. I'd be super platypus excited to discuss the story with you!


Emily Monroe is NOT the Chosen One: Re-Chosen

 

Emily Monroe is NOT the Chosen One: Re-Chosen

On October 18, 2020 my short eBook novella, Emily Monroe is NOT the Chosen One: Re-Chosen, was added at Amazon.com! It is the third and final entry in the Emily Monroe trilogy of novellas.  And as is my custom, I have print on demand paperbacks available for you as well if you prefer the physical feel of turning pages and smell of fresh ink!

Re-Chosen is a tongue in cheek, superhero parody that irreverently pokes fun at superheroes in general. Emily has the misfortune to look like Big City's superhero darling, the Chosen One, so villains come out of the woodwork to try to fight her. Nobody will listen when she tries to tell them that she is not the Chosen One. Super deeds, no cape required.

---

Emily Monroe may be a lot of things, but one thing is for sure, she is NOT the Chosen One.

Emily has a long day.  After fending off another villainous attack during the night shift at Big Burger, and all she wants to do is to go home and get some sleep as the sun rises.

What's a unpowered girl to do in a super powered world when she gets home to find the most notorious villain of Big City in her kitchen?

An even more dangerous threat to the city takes precedence as after Containment's detention facility is damaged, dozens of criminals escape.  But the biggest threat?  The person hired to replace the Chosen One as the city's protector... Mega-Girl!

---

Prepare to giggle and snort your way through the book as Emily kicks ass with her girlfriend, roommate, and sister at her side.

You, my readers are the most platypus awesome people ever... Re-Chosen made its way onto the bestseller list just hours after release! I heart you all so much!
As always, I'd like to send a gigantic thank you out to all of you. And I'd love and appreciate any feedback, positive or negative. I also accept luminescent troglodyte pudding.

New Release! Unleashed: Case of the Irish Sitter

 

Case of the Irish Sitter, the 11th book in my Unleashed romantic comedy / cozy mystery series has
been published!



On September 28, 2020 my eBook, Unleashed: Case of the Irish Sitter, was added at Amazon.com! And as always, I also have print on demand paperbacks available for your reading pleasure!

Unleashed is a sweet, fun, and flirty return to my Music of the Soul writing style as it is in the same world as my MOTS books. My romances, especially my paranormal romances, have been getting pretty serious and dark and I though I'd lighten things up with this lighthearted series which is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud and fall in love with the characters.

Plus the Unleashed series breaks from my single book love stories and I have decided to make this a long burn budding romance that matures throughout the series before the flickering fire bursts into a raging inferno.

---

Finnegan Temperance McLeary-May, dog walker extraordinaire has had an eventful time in Manhattan since she first moved to New York City.  Her unique profession and quirky, bubbly personality endear her to everyone who meets her.

Finnegan's daughter, Luce is asked to dog sit a goofy, energetic Irish Setter for her school principal.  And all was right in the world until a glittery catastrophe strikes.

Luce and Finnegan locate an all night dog grooming service to clean up the silly pup, but somehow they find themselves in New Jersey, running for their lives without Calvin and Buttons.

Interesting people are met, and friendships are forged, ending in a chase that has Fin's wife, Detective Jane McLeary-May trying to catch the bad guys before they catch the girls.

---
This one illustrates just how much Luce is like her adoptive mother as she, like Finnegan, seems to be a magnet for trouble.  Trouble that usually ends in a lot of screaming and running.

You, my ever awesome, platypus loving readers have already put Case of the Irish Sitter on on the Amazon bestseller lists in its categories! I super heart each and every one of you!


And as is my tradition, I want to send a huge thanks out to all of you. And I'd love and appreciate any feedback, positive or negative. I also accept rocket-ships made of macaroni.. 


I'd love to hear feedback from YOU about the story and characters of Unleashed: Case of the Irish Sitter. I'd be happy to discuss the story with you!

The Worldship Files is quickly becoming a phenomenon. Humans, Fae, shape shifters, and all manner of paranormals on board a multi-generational vessel on a 10,000 year journey in space.

---

When the Earth is threatened by a slowly expanding sun, mankind embarks upon a mission to send a mammoth Worldship to settle a new planet across the stars. The preternatural races step out of hiding to work with the humans to save what they can from their dying world.  With the aid of the Fae, shape shifters, Vampires, and other creatures of supernatural lore, the Worldship, Leviathan, is complete one thousand years later.

With the Worldship adding the wayward Cityships to the slowly evolving fleet, it quickly becomes apparent that there will not be enough raw materials and supplies to make it to their new home without the sacrifice of thousands.

Knith leads a small crew on a volunteer mission, offworld, to acquire what they need... a new heart for the Leviathan.

Finnegan and her detective wife, Jane, are asked by the owner of the mega dog walking conglomerate, Rafiel's Canine Walkers, for a favor.

Conditions are dire on the Cityships, and an advance team is sent to evaluate the ships and the people on board. Knith Shade, Brigade Enforcer is put in charge of the humanitarian mission.

This story is a little bittersweet as it is the final chapter in this epic paranormal romance series about Trolls, bridges, magic and Fae. I'm going to hate saying goodbye to Evangeline Kane, Sharee, and their little fox, Felicia.

Tthe Bridge universe follows a modern day reluctant hero, Evangeline Kane, and the city's supernatural enforcer, the Custodian, Sharee Krynn, as they make their way in a world of trolls and the Under-Veil.
