The Reluctant Debutante
by Wendy May Andrews


GENRE: Historical Romance (Regency)



The Duke of Wychwood seeks retribution from the Earl of Pickering. When he finds out the earl has a beautiful young niece, the duke thinks to involve her in his feud, but is shocked to discover he is attracted to her.

The orphaned niece of the earl, Lady Victoria, serves as governess to four of his children and is made to feel like an interloper in her own home. A chance encounter with the duke affords her the opportunity to enter Society, but to take it means risking what little security she has.

Revenge and love don't sit well together, to have a future can they learn to give up the past?



chapter 3 – first sparks

Victoria was beginning to feel quite miserable. She was soaked from head to toe, most of her body immersed in the water. Her heavy skirts were feeling like lead weights as they pulled her towards the current. Her boots were slowly sinking into the sludge on the river bottom. And the gorgeous stranger was now looking at her appraisingly.

“Can you reach my hand?”

Victoria felt a shiver slither up her back at the sound of his deep voice as he leaned down for her.

Wishing there were some other way, Victoria looked at him then up and down the river once more. Unfortunately, the riverbanks had not changed in the last few minutes and there was still no way to get up the bank on her own. Turning back to the stranger, she gritted her teeth and stretched out her hand.

Bryghton was struck by the young woman’s beauty. Her remarkable eyes held so much expressive emotion. He could tell she was scared and embarrassed but she had the wit to realize she had little choice if she wished to be rescued from her precarious position. The duke knew that not too much farther downstream the river deepened considerably.

The feel of her cold little hand in his large, warm one sent a strange sensation through him, but he knew this was not the time to be distracted. Despite her slight frame, her soaking clothes were weighing her down considerably, and effort would be required to get her out. In a similar gesture to hers, he too gritted his teeth and yanked on her arm.

With a plop, and after a swift scrabble up the bank, Victoria landed on the edge of the river next to the impeccably dressed, handsome stranger. Blushing again, she offered a shy, hesitant smile as she pushed herself to a seated position.



How did you come up with the title of your book or series?

Titles are my weakness! I would rather write the whole book than try to come up with a title. I will usually sit down with my brainstorming friends and they help me come up with ideas and then my husband will pick when I’ve narrowed it down to three or so. But this book was actually fairly easy to name. The Reluctant Debutante really tells what the story is about – Victoria is very reluctant to enter into the social fray of Society.

Tell us a little bit about your cover art. Who designed it? Why did you go with that particular design?

My cover artist is Victorine Lieske of Blue Valley Author Services. I absolutely love it! I had a great deal of say and control over this cover. I wanted it to have the feel of my heroine looking into the aristocratic life and hesitating. I didn’t want her looking at the reader because I want my readers to be able to imagine for themselves what she looks like. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I’m always so disappointed if a cover has someone on it that I don’t find particularly attractive. I think it’s better to leave it up to the reader, so I prefer my covers not to have a face completely visible.

Who is your favorite character from your book and why?

I think the hero’s mom is one of my favorite characters ever. She plays a fairly minor role but I just love her combination of hardness and softness. She’s a duchess so she’s a very powerful woman, but she is always motivated by love for her family. And I found her single-mindedness to be hilarious.

How about your least favorite character?  What makes them less appealing to you?

My heroine’s uncle is the villain of the book. He is weak and wicked – a terrible combination.

If you could change ONE thing about your book, what would it be?  Why?

This is too difficult to answer. It just recently released and I did my very best to make it fantastic so at this point I wouldn’t change anything about it. But give it time and there will probably be more than one thing…

Where did your love of reading/storytelling/writing/etc. come from?

I have a brother who is three years older than me. Apparently I was his constant shadow until he started school. Because I was crestfallen when he went to school without me, my mother spent a lot of time with me, including reading to me. Because I have a very active imagination, reading is a wonderful activity and I took to reading quite avidly, learning to read before I even started school. I also have an aunt who is an avid reader and she generously shared all her books with me. She introduced me to the works of Georgette Heyer and my love for Regencies was born.

How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

I have a website,, I’m also on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (all under WendyMayAndrews) or you can find me directly on Amazon -

What can we expect from you in the future? What are you working on now?

I have another Regency (not yet named) coming out this fall. It’s with my editor right now. I’ve also started writing two new series. One is set in 1855 American mid-west. The other is a new Regency series. I’m really excited about both of these new series. I can’t wait to share them with readers. I hope to start releasing them early next year.

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?

Tell everyone you know about it ☺ And write a review. Writers love getting reviews from people who’ve enjoyed their books.

by Leslie D. Soule


GENRE:   Fantasy



With five crystals to destroy, in order to rob the dark lord Malegaunt of his power, Ash Kensington's path is set. She begins a quest with the talking cat, Greymalkin, and her wyvern, Slick. But when she meets up with the handsome dragon slayer, Draeon, her senses overwhelm her, and she becomes distracted. Will she be able to destroy the crystals in time to challenge Malegaunt?



“What can I do for ya?”

She looked at the bartender and said sorrowfully, “Give me a spell to make me forget.” I’ve wasted so much time, she thought to herself, and now I don’t know if I can get back on track. Malegaunt is out there, and none of the crystals have been destroyed. It drove her mad.

He shook his head and pushed a pint of dark beer across the bar. “This is the best magic I know. That’s why I’m a bartender.” He pointed down the bar a ways to a man who looked to be in his forties, if not older. He was clothed in a black coat, and his stubbled face was hunched over a glass of what looked like whiskey on the rocks. “Now, that guy over there, on the other hand, he might be able to help ya. People call him the Oracle of the Oasis,” he informed her.



1. Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book?

Well, this is a difficult question for me to answer. As a writer, I find that I don’t have an intended audience in mind when I write. I just write as I feel like, and hope that there’s some truth in there or some things that people like about it. I try not to shy away from the difficult stuff, but a lot of people do. I try not to conform my writing to a target audience. I mean, it would detract from the process of writing, which is supposed to be organic and from the heart. Literature is where humanity stores its collective heart. And when you write a specific thing for a specific audience, it becomes more of a cold, mechanical process.

2. How did you come up with the title of your book or series?

    My series is called the Fallenwood Chronicles. I did a search to check that the name hadn’t been used for a series already, and so far as I could tell, it hadn’t. I wanted something short, but to the point. This is a fallen fantasy woodland realm (or at least the area Ash starts off in, is in the woods), so smooshing the words “fallen” and “wood” together, did the job nicely. I also give the fantasy world the more proper title of Terra Illumina, but as a series name, I like Fallenwood Chronicles better.

3. Tell us a little bit about your cover art. Who designed it? Why did you go with that particular design?

Stephanie Flint did the design, and I love it. She did the other covers for my novels as well, and I LOVE how they turned out! With this book, I wanted the cover to show an action scene and to show something exciting. I wanted there to be a dragon. Well, there’s a dragon-slaying scene in this book. I gave Stephanie the basic idea I was looking for, and she ran with it, and it’s awesome!

4. Who is your favorite character from your book and why?

Of course my favorite character is Ash, because she’s based on me, but besides her, I really love Will Everett. He’s a character who I’ve tried to create as an embodiment of a genuinely good man. He’s Ash’s mentor and he knows a lot – in Betrayer, you get to see all the books he owns, on a variety of subjects. He’s a character that’s part reality and part wish fulfillment.

5. If you could change ONE thing about your book, what would it be?  Why?

I’d add in more sensory detail. I have my own writing style, but I think it comes off as a bit stoic sometimes, and I’d create more atmosphere in my novels, if I could change something about them.

6. How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

Check out my website at – there’s a contact form there, if you want to write to me directly. I’ve created a Facebook author page, and feel free to contact me on Twitter.

7. What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?

Well, I’m an introvert, and so any help I could get with getting the word out about my books, is appreciated and helpful. I love getting reviews. And I’d love to network with other authors, and I particularly think we California authors ought to stick together and help each other.

8. Is there anything else you’d like to say?

Yes. I want to say that if there’s a novel that you’ve always wanted to write, write it. Just start putting words on the page, even if you don’t think they’re good enough. Just write. And keep writing, and edit it all later. When you’re done, you’ll have something that you can work on polishing up, and you can continuously polish it until you’re happy with the result.
