Release Day! Fight Like A Girl (Part One) by Dawn Pendleton

Release Day!

Fight Like A Girl (Part One)



**This is a 3-part novella series**

MMA is no place for a girl - unless that girl is Max Brady. Growing up around the ring as the daughter of a famous fighter, she finally takes her place in the MMA world after her father’s mysterious disappearance. Deciding to fight was the easy part - she never imagined finding a good trainer would be her biggest obstacle.

Kingston Lawrence was a rising star in the MMA world, until a knee injury forced him to the other side of the fight. He thought three rounds in the ring was hard, but nothing compares to the battle of training and taming Max. Her sexy body makes up for her sarcastic mouth, and it isn’t long before he wants to be more than just her trainer.

But Kingston has a secret, one that could ruin both their lives. He can train Max for a fight, but nothing can prepare them for what happens when that secret is revealed.

Special Halloween Interview with Author S.G. Holster




1.   What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever heard/read/seen? It can be from a book, movie, or from the campfire at night…

I love this question! You're going to think I'm crazy...I was with my family in Yosemite National Park. We were all asleep in our cozy cabin when something woke me. I looked over to the door where I could clearly see a translucent image. It was an elderly man, frail, and wearing thin striped pajamas. He kept leaning back an forth as if he were looking out the window by the door.
I was frozen in place. I finally sat up in the bed and he was gone. Was I dreaming? Possibly. But to me it was very real.

2.   Who would you like to bring back as a zombie? Why?

Nope! Not a zombie fan.

3.   What is your favorite thing about Halloween?

My favorite part of Halloween is making costumes with my girls. It's always so much fun. This year I have one skeleton bride and a zombie -ish freak.

4.   What was your best Halloween costume?

A couple years ago I dressed up as the black swan. It was a lot of fun.

5.   Is there an author out there that you’re pretty sure is a witch? Tell us who and why you think so!

Tough question. Hmmm...J.K. Rowling? She seems to be in tune with all things sorcery. Cassandra Clare, too.

Thank you, S.G.!!!

Special Halloween Interview with Author Hilary Thompson




1.   What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever heard/read/seen? It can be from a book, movie, or from the campfire at night…

When I was around twelve, we lived in a 100-year-old house. I walked home from school each day and waited alone until my mom returned from work. During those softly-lit afternoon hours I would often glimpse twinkles of light just out of direct sight, or blurry spots near the end of the long hallway. These things never scared me or seemed maleficent until the day my friends and I decided to try out a Ouija board - and the game piece moved on its own! The very next night I stayed up late again, writing on our ancient computer. My hallway desk faced away from the stairs and as I typed I slowly became aware of steps, heavy and slow on the staircase behind me. But every time I turned around, there was nothing to see or hear. We moved soon after that, so I never had much resolution, but the next owners tore the house down to the ground after a few months...

2.   Who would you like to bring back as a zombie? Why?

Zombies gross me out, so I wouldn't wish that on many people. But if it were just for a day and not for a beheading, I would adore seeing Chris Farley as a comedic zombie.

3.   What is your favorite thing about Halloween?

Dressing up! I don't live near enough to any conventions, so Halloween is like my own little Comic Con. I think it's amazing fun to dress up and enter a character's brain for a night. (Maybe that's why I write!)

4.   What was your best Halloween costume?

Last year, I was the wicked witch of the east...the one squashed under Dorothy's house! I joined up with about a dozen teachers from my school, and together we completed the whole Wizard of Oz cast! This year, my husband and I are rocking out He-Man and She-Ra - like the true eighties kids we still are!

5.   Is there an author out there that you’re pretty sure is a witch? Tell us who and why you think so!

I'm going to tag Eva Pohler in this one - I think of her as a Hermione sort of witch! She seems to be everywhere at once, so she certainly must have a time turner somewhere. And she gives great career advice!

Thank you, Hilary!!!



How to find Hilary:



Bio:
Hilary Thompson was born to parents who made a habit of taking roads less traveled. But she was also a Libra, a first child, and an independent, willful child, so she has made a habit of taking a few roads on her own.
After trying on hats made for artists, architects, restaurant and retail workers, landscape designers, legal secretaries, and professional students, she retreated back to her first loves of education and writing.
Hilary now teaches high school full time, writes whenever and wherever she can, and reads as much as her eyes can handle. She also tries not to spoil her own independent, willful children or neglect her wonderful soul-mate of a husband too much. She tends to ignore laundry baskets and dirty dishes.

Special Halloween Interview with Author Christina Mercer




1.   What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever heard/read/seen? It can be from a book, movie, or from the campfire at night…

When I was a kid and VHS movies were starting to become all the rage (you actually went and rented the VHS players, too), I attended a birthday slumber party and we watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I don't think the mom had a clue what she'd rented us girls. It absolutely terrified us!

2.   Who would you like to bring back as a zombie? Why?

This is a hard one, cuz zombies are so . . . ew! But maybe someone like Jim Carrey who did great with his character in The Mask (he was funny and nice with good peeps and served up justice to the bad!).

3.   What is your favorite thing about Halloween?

I LOVE all the magic and lore that surrounds it, and even the season, which happens to be my favorite one, enhances the mood with its longer, cooler nights.

4.   What was your best Halloween costume?

I attended a party as a sexy Honey Bee and my husband went as my Keeper ;-)

5.   Is there an author out there that you’re pretty sure is a witch? Tell us who and why you think so!

Well, it takes a witch to know one, right? LOL Or maybe a wizard-ess is a better description. I think fellow fantasy author Chelsea Starling weaves some pretty nice magic.


Thank you, Christina!!!
