Episode 1 Out Now!

By Author Ty Langston: CRAVE
As a reporter for the Wakefield Post, Harper Erkstine has seen everything. From murders to robberies, all of her recent stories have ended with tragic consequences so great, that she began to question if she made the right career choice for herself.
While all of her friends were dating, or going to clubs, she was winning journalism awards for covering the latest drive-by shooting or a home invasion that cost someone she knew, their lives.
She loved her job, it was rewarding to be a crime solver and get to the truth of the matter. As much as she loved her job, but the hours of a Metro beat reporter began to descend her into burn out mode.
She craved balance. A break, a welcome distraction every now and then. She forgot what it was like to have fun, to take a breath, smell the roses.
Was it wrong to want a great career and to have some kind of a personal life? She couldn’t remember the last time she had a date or danced with someone from the opposite sex.
In the middle of working on a missing person’s story that has rocked her town to the core, Harper decides as a favor to her friend and colleague to do a feature on local an up and coming rock band, called ‘Crave.’
It was a break from her routine, but Harper soon discovers that this band may have ties to the missing person, not only does she question why, but she also finds there is more to this band than just their music.

By Author Riley Ross: The Getaway
The Getaway isn’t your typical romance woman meets man of her dreams, loses him and then they get their happily ever after. It’s a romance story with hints of drama and plenty of comedy. Mike and Juliet have been dating for about four months. Juliet is madly in love with him but has never shared her feelings.
Mike hasn’t said those three magical words so she doesn’t even know if they are on the same page when it comes to their relationship. Mike takes Juliet on a two week vacation, so she can escape her family drama and stresses from her job. He has romantic surprises planned and there are several unexpected surprises for them both. How well do Mike and Juliet really know each other especially when an explosive secret from his past is revealed? Will their relationship survive a visit from his family and his ex-girlfriend? Will the secret destroy them or make them stronger as a couple? His mother has made it clear to everyone that she wants Mike back with his vile ex-girlfriend?
Will his mother sabotage her son’s relationship with Juliet? Juliet does have an ally in Mike’s father. Will Juliet fight for her love? Or will she let him go without exposing his mother for her dastardly schemes? How far will his mom go to ensure she gets what she wants for her son?

By Author Tigris Eden: The Genesis Project
Old earth has been deemed unsuitable for life, New Earth is home. With the Uni-War over, races have joined together in order to sustain their way of life. All life was deemed worth saving, but only one race failed to submit. Humans.
Now extinct, humans are a thing of the past, or at least their way of life. The people of New Earth won’t acknowledge their hand in the human’s eradication, but they have benefited from it. Dr. Vaggo Blackmore has found the answer, he’s restored his races way of life- sustenance through farming. The one thing that will give them back their long lives….. Blood: human blood.
Biologically engineered in a lab, Genesis Blackmore has always been different. Her father has told her it’s due to her enhancements, the Federated Council sees her as a genetic mutation; and her fellow peers see her as the shiny new toy. Gen has had better days.
Everyone on New Earth has milky white skin, platinum blonde hair, and electric blue eyes. It’s the norm. Genesis’ glossy, black hair, ice blue eyes ringed by gold, would have almost made her socially acceptable- if it wasn’t for her honey, almond skin and blue, gold veins. In a sea of milky white she alone is the dark anomaly.
All Pars get their life’s nourishment through blood plasma. All Pars find their match through the tasting. Gen can do neither, forbidden by her father to do so. She can neither taste, nor be tasted. Something that’s never bothered her until now.

Episode 2 Out October 27th

Desperate for the truth, the more she talked with him, the more attracted she became. Did he really have the answers she sought or was he a distraction of something more sinister.

Chapter 1

“How am I supposed to pack if you will not tell me where we are going?” I asked my boyfriend Mike as he stood in my walk in closet with me. He grabbed some clothes and put them into my suitcase.

“Just pack enough clothes for two weeks. If you find that you forgot something, well we can go shopping.” He said patiently as he grinned at me.

Mike surprised me by slipping a blindfold over my eyes after we left my house. I sighed with displeasure as he chuckled. Before I could voice my concerns about being blindfolded, he lightly kissed me on the lips.

“I want our destination to be a surprise. I heard what you and Stephanie were talking about. I agree with your assessment that you need to relax. You are mine for two weeks, no phone calls, no laptop, no worries about family or their drama. So Sweets, accept the fact that I am in control.” He said softly as he led me outside to his car. He stole another kiss from me before shutting the door. He got in on his side and started the engine of his silver BMW 760LI. I leaned back against the cream leather seats and sighed. I heard him chuckle and felt his hand touch my thigh.

“Can we just stay here? I promise I will relax.” I said as he removed his hand.

“Relax Jules,” he said softly as he put on classical music. After twenty minutes of listening to Mozart and the melodic hum of the engine, I fell asleep. I woke up when the car engine stopped. Mike leaned over and removed the blindfold from my eyes and I opened them to see an unfamiliar house overlooking a lake surrounded by trees. The air was warm, with a light fresh breeze. The house was a charming log cabin with a beautiful wraparound porch. Mike grinned at me as I took in a deep breath of fresh air.

“Welcome to our little getaway for two weeks. Don’t worry about my parents. They will be here in a few days. I hope you don’t mind.” He said sounding a bit fretful.

“That sounds delightful and scary.” I said grinning at him. I tried to help him unload the car but he glared at me. I grinned at him and carried my bag to the porch. Once he brought the last of the bags to the porch he opened the door and scooped me up and carried me inside. He gently placed me on the brown suede sofa. He dropped another kiss on my lips before he moved away from me. I could smell his woodsy aftershave linger for another second before it dissipated as he walked further away from me.

“Stay here while I bring in the luggage. I mean it Juliet, you are to sit here and look pretty.” He said bossily as he went back outside to bring in our bags. While he was doing that, I walked around the cabin. I found pictures of Mike and his family placed around the house. The cabin was warm and spacious. The décor was mostly masculine with a few deer heads mounted on the wall. Mike found me in the kitchen drooling over the gas stove and stainless steel appliances. “Have you checked out the back porch yet?” He asked after planting a quick kiss on my shoulder. He led me out to the enclosed back porch and showed me the small hot tub.

“I am in love with this place.” I said grinning at him.

“I am in love with this place too. I bought it last year. My family checks on it while I am on the road.

When Vince ordered your vacation, I thought I would bring you here to relax. You have been somewhat stressed out since your dad and brother had that falling out.” He said softly as he put his arms around my waist and pulled me closer to him.

“Thank you for always being there. The family battle over the law firm has been affecting me more than I thought. Although I think they are both stupid for fighting over control over the company, I still love them. Enough about them it’s time to relax and unwind. This is our vacation so let’s leave the drama back in Akron.” I said to him before I kissed him softly on the lips. He pulled back before I could deepen the kiss. His muscular arms held me to him and I felt relaxed and safe in his arms.
“I told you Jules, we are going to go slow.” He said softly as he grinned at me. I planted another lingering kiss on his lips that had him panting as we parted. His baby blue eyes were darkened with lust.

“Show me to my room and I will show you what I am wearing or not wearing underneath this sundress.” I said as he looked dazed.

“Juliet you are going to be the death of me, but whatta way to go.” He whispered.

I walked into the house and I heard him mutter a curse word as he came in after me. He scooped me up in his arms and carried me to the bedroom. He gently put me down on my feet as he slipped his hand up my skirt. He sighed when he felt the bare skin against his warm hand.

“Dammit Juliet,” he growled softly in my ear. “Why do you have to treat me this way? You know I want to take my time with you but you are making it hard for me.”

“I know I feel how hard you are. I can take care of that for you if you would let me.” I said grinning at him as he lustfully glared at me.

“We are supposed to go slow.” He said.

“Fine Michael, I will play by your rules. If you want to take things slow, we will go as slow as you want or fast and hard as you want.” I whispered in his ear as I moved away from him. He went into his designated bedroom and shut the door firmly behind him. I went into the bathroom and took a quick shower. I wrapped a huge fluffy, white towel around me as I went back into my room. I changed into a pair of denim cutoffs and black tank top. The bedroom that I chose to stay in had a full size bed with a walnut headboard. The bedspread was a done in a blue and white quilted pattern
