Tania Johansson

Release Date: May 29th 2014

Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult





✾ Synopsis ✾


Khaya's life, a life the Order say was never meant to be, is thrown into turmoil when she discovers she has a second ability. The Company who employs people like her – with rare and special abilities – insists that having more than one inevitably leads down a dark spiral into madness. So they are watching and waiting, ready to terminate her at the first sign of trouble.

Now, on the run from the Company's agents while trying to prove her sanity, Khaya realises they are not the only ones she should fear. Angels are working towards her demise as well.

The question that haunts her is this: What did she do that was terrible enough to elicit the wrath of angels? And can she trust the mysterious Derrin, or is he the cause of all her tribulations?

✿ Excerpt ✿


Running and hiding wasn't new to him, but this was the first time he had someone else to look after. At least, it was the first time since he'd died. The riders were gaining on them. There was no way they'd be able to escape them.

Frantic, Derrin cast his gaze around as they ran, looking for somewhere, anywhere, to hide. There was nowhere. "We are going to have to fight," he said over his shoulder.

"What?" she gasped, her mouth gaping. "I've never been in a fight in my entire life."

"You will have to use Insight."

"No," she said, tugging to free herself from his grasp. He clamped his hand round hers and drew her on.

"I know you don't like it, Khaya, but if they catch you, your life will be forfeit. It's them or us." He stopped, holding her by the shoulders. "Prepare yourself, they are near."

He turned, stepping in front of her as if to shield her. He realised how ridiculous that was since no one could see him besides her. Their pursuers emerged from the trees and drew rein about ten feet from where they stood.

"Miss Pherela, I presume," the blond man sneered. He slid from his saddle, his hand on the hilt of his sword, but he left it sheathed. "I've been warned that you're dangerous. You don't look it," he guffawed at his joke, looking back at his bushy-haired companion who snickered. "A little woman like you won't give me no trouble, now will you? You aren't even armed."

Khaya stood frozen in place. "Use your Insight," Derrin urged. "If I attack this buffoon, the other lout will quickly have one of his arrows through you."

Her eyes flickered to Derrin and away. "I can't," she said.

"What was that?" the blond asked. "I've heard she's crazy," he said over his shoulder to his companion.

The burly man behind him looked at her, his face paling. "Stop toying with her then," he said. "Let's get her bound and take her in."

The blond chuckled, but his eyes were hard as he looked back at Khaya. "Now, little lady, we can make this easy or hard for you. Our orders said to bring you in alive. If possible. I don't mind either way."

He inched closer to her, pulling his sword from its sheath.

"Khaya, do it!" Derrin commanded as he marched over to the second man.

Her face went blank, her eyes locking on the blond, and her head cocking to one side. She stretched out her hand and Derrin wondered if she was even aware of doing that. Slowly, her hand balled into a fist and the blond man's sneer turned into a grimace. There was a crunch and he bellowed in agony and dropped his sword, his right arm hanging limp by his side.






✿ The Author ✿


I grew up in a small town called Ficksburg in South Africa and moved with my family to England aged fifteen.

I then completed my schooling through a correspondence course from South Africa. This challenging time taught me a lot of self-discipline and determination. Qualities that have been invaluable while writing my first novel.

In 2004 I started studying optometry at Aston University in Birmingham, UK and currently I live and work as an optician in Kent.

In 2008, I married my wonderful husband, Tor. He has been such an amazing support and wealth of internet wizardry from when I started writing through to designing a cover for Book of Remembrance, to publishing my book on amazon as well as setting up this website. I cannot thank him enough.

Reading has always been one of my passions. I have fond memories of trawling through the library aged five (yes I was a geek from a young age!). More recently, I found myself wondering about the process writers must go through to complete a novel. I started thinking about how they would go about planning out a story and keeping track of all the various aspects of it. Finally, I decided to try my theories out. I have not looked back since!

I started writing Book of Remembrance end of May 2011 and finished it in December 2011. Since then, I have self-published it as an e-book on amazon. I have also started writing the follow up novel, which is untitled at the moment.

Invaluable
The Trident Code #2
by
Alana Albertson

Publication Date: Spring 2015

Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Suspense





✾ Synopsis ✾


I'll be honest with you — I'm no saint. Sure, when I turned down my 3.6 million dollar football contract to join the SEAL Teams, the media had a field day. Selfless, patriotic, an American hero. But the God's honest truth was that I was bored with that world, the playboy lifestyle, the ass kissing, the lack of integrity. There's even a line in one of our cadences: "When I go to heaven St. Peter he will say 'Did you earn your living? Did you earn your pay?' My reply was with a little bit of thunder 'I earned my living killing down under.'" You've read the tabloids — I'm infallible, invincible, invaluable. But it wasn't that deep — I just wanted some action.

A one night stand with a San Diego coed, no promise for tomorrow. I picked her out of a steamy nightclub — sexy blonde hair, curvy hips, nice ass. After she rode me all night, I took in the ocean view from my condo, thankful for the blissful moments she gave me to get me through my long deployment — I savored the warm touch of a woman, the scent of her perfume and the sound of her laughter.

As fate would have it, I crossed paths with Miss San Diego again, halfway across the world in Afghanistan. Turns out she was a NFL Cheerleader sent on a USO tour to entertain my Team. Her convoy was ambushed, and insurgents held her hostage deep in the mountains. I'd gazed into her beautiful blue eyes and given her my word that she'd be safe. And my word is my bond.

I'll never win MVP, never get the Super Bowl ring, but some heroes don't play games.

✾ Synopsis ✾


If...
Someone hadn't scarred my face.
I hadn' followed my dreams to LA.
That tweaker hadn't attacked that homeless guy.
I hadn't invited a stranger over for Thanksgiving.
I hadn't fallen in love.
If I hadn't lost him.

------

If...
I hadn't gone for that drive.
I saw the world like everyone else.
My "genius" wasn't slowly destroying me.
I had just walked away before I could ever know her.
She hadn't ignited the spark.
If the spark didn't ignite the madness.

✿ Excerpt ✿


I ran my fingers down the cotton of her tank, over the slope of her backside, and we were intertwined. I felt myself melting into her, our colors swirling in dazzling circles, like paint flowing onto a spinning turntable. I needed to stop this, but the waves of heat that were gentle before overtook me like a raging river, pulling me closer to her. She was so soft, everything about her was velvety and smooth, and it made my kisses harsher. I traveled down the curve of her delicate neck to the space just behind her ear and took in her scent, a hint of soap with a kiss of the flower that only I could smell. I pressed my lips against the secret nook, and she let out a moan, a sound I had never heard from her, and so I saw something new in her voice: a little burst of gold and violet that exploded and disappeared like a firework.

You have to stop, Ash.

God I didn't want to. I wanted more than anything to take this all the way, to experience every inch of her smooth skin, see all the different shades and shapes of her moans, and taste the rest of her body, but I had rules. I made these rules for myself years ago, and there was a reason for these rules. Memories of death flashed before me, and the heat that was running through me turned so cold, my teeth almost chattered.

The taste of her kisses was overtaken by that of sour milk. Lavender was overtaken by gasoline. I had to make myself remember. I had to find a way to fight this rushing tide.

Fucking stop, Ash!

Finally my rational thoughts screamed loud enough to be listened to, and I pulled away. She looked at me for a few seconds, her stare blank, her lips slightly parted. I understood her confusion. Just seconds ago I could have devoured her, but I couldn't let the switch flip. Now I was afraid it was too late. I had to leave.

✿ Reviews for Indisputable










A.M. Wilson fell in love with writing in second grade when she won a young writers' contest. She spent the years following carrying around a spiral notebook, which she filled with poetry and short stories detailing the dramatics of being a young girl. When she hit her college years, she set the notebooks down and fell in love with reading romance novels. She may have attended college four separate times in four different fields, but always knew in her heart writing was her true passion. She grew up in Duluth, Minnesota and spent her summers in the cold waters of Lake Superior, but relocated to the Twin Cities with the love of her life and has two spirited children who make her world go round.
