My newest novella, FREDO’S SECRET, was a Christmas present to my readers. One comment I loved yesterday from a reader was, “Fredo’s Secret was the book I didn’t realize I needed.” Fredo grew up poor in a rough neighborhood near LA. He isn’t as handsome as some of his SEAL brothers, but he wound up with Mia, the most beautiful of all the SEAL wives. Mia is Armando’s (the sniper on SEAL Team 3) little wild child sister, and he spent the first four books loving her from afar while she mistreated him and wickedly turned down all his advances. They finally get together in Book 5, Cruisin For a SEAL. With his unibrow, wide nose and ruddy complexion, Fredo has always been a fan favorite. I can’t tell you how many letters I’ve received from fans asking when he’d have his own book. There are a lot of things that a writer does to get into a character, and after writing this novella, now I can write his full length book. But it took me over two years to get there! It was a pleasure to bring the novella to my readers. And I decided to have it recorded…

Fresh Pick / January 14, 2016

Fresh Pick for Thursday, January 14th, 2016 is THE DIRT ON NINTH GRAVE by Darynda Jones #SupernaturalThursday it’s love at first read! About THE DIRT ON NINTH GRAVE In a small village in New York Charley Davidson is living as Jane Doe, a girl with no memory of who she is or where she came from. So when she is working at a diner and slowly begins to realize she can see dead people, she’s more than a little taken aback. Stranger still are the people entering her life. They seem to know things about her. Things they hide with lies and half-truths. Soon, she senses something far darker. A force that wants to cause her harm, she is sure of it. Her saving grace comes in the form of a new friend she feels she can confide in and the fry cook, a devastatingly handsome man whose smile is breathtaking and touch is scalding. He stays close, and she almost feels safe with him around. But no one can outrun their past, and the more lies that swirl around her-even from her new and trusted friends-the more disoriented she becomes, until she is confronted by a man who claims…

R.P. Channing | Top Five Reasons You Should Date a Reincarnated Witch
Author Guest / January 14, 2016

Forget the gorgeous blonds or the pictures you see in the fashion magazines (they’re all too skinny anyway), what you as a guy should really be looking for is a reincarnated witch. The pros far outweigh the cons (although the cons list is a little scary, but only if you’re unfaithful, see point #5 below.) In Thirst: Blood of my Blood, Kira soon discovers she has roamed this earth before, and her best friend, Brenda, was her right-hand gal. But the key focus in the story is Kira’s relationship with Cory. Cory doesn’t run when he discovers she’s a reincarnated witch. When you see the Pros list, neither would you. 1. They’re Experts at Foreign Language Studies This depends on where the witch was raised initially. But a witch remembers the languages she has spoken before. Imagine how useful that would be in a French restaurant. No more ordering icky snails when you thought it was a rib-eye steak, or Macarons thinking it has something to do with pasta (it doesn’t.) Pain au chocolat is not a new method of cocoa torture, and Madeleine does not mean you’ll get a new waitress…called Madeleine. You might think a problem arises when…
