About the Book

Archaeologist Leah Andrews stumbles upon something inexplicable in southwestern New Mexico: inside a dark cavern lies an undiscovered, Native American cliff dwelling abandoned for 800 years. While twisting through one of the narrow underground passageways, Leah’s flashlight illuminates the remains of a violent massacre.

Ancient human remains—all slaughtered in a long-ago massacre—cover the cavern floor, along with a number of brilliantly colored, granite crystals. The rare crystals are native to only one place on earth: a frozen mountain range in central Antarctica.

Could Native Americans have traveled to the frozen continent of Antarctica 800 years prior to the first known human exploration? If so how? And why?

There’s only one person who can get Leah to those mountains in Antarctica: her estranged husband and climbing guide Jack Hobson.

At their destination they make a stunning discovery that will change history and science forever. But Leah’s team is far from the only interested party.

As her secret makes its way to the highest levels of government, a race to seize the Russian-claimed Antarctic territory brings the world to the brink of nuclear conflict.

Indie Author Interview: Skye Callahan


Indie Author Interview with Skye Callahan - Author of the New Adult Romantic Suspense The Redline Series.

Skye Callahan is the bestselling author of Irrevocable, a dark romance that ran away with her emotions and led her on a whole new writing journey. She enjoys exploring the darker sides of life through her fiction, whether through paranormal creatures or the depraved underbelly of human nature.
Her other works include the follow up to Irrevocable, Bend Don’t Break, The Fractured Legacy Series, and Bound and Unbroken.

Interview with Skye Callahan

Author Skye Callahan
Author Skye Callahan
Alan Kealey (Indie Author News): What is your (writing) background?
Skye Callahan: I’ve been fascinated with fiction since I was a kid. If I didn’t have my nose stuck in a book, I was probably scribbling down my own story or creating characters and having conversations with them. I took imaginary friends to a whole new level! I studied history in college because I’m also intrigued by how everything comes together to change societies and cultures. After nearly six years of writing academic papers and presenting at historical conferences and feeling like there was something missing in my life, I sat down and started writing fiction again. Every night until I finally had something I wanted to publish in 2013—a paranormal urban fantasy, Fractured Legacy. The following year, I wrote a BDSM novel, and then a dark romance, Irrevocable, that climbed the charts to be my first bestseller.

Who are your favorite writers, your favorite  books, and who or what are your writing influences?
As a child I fell in love with the work of R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike, and Stephen King. There’s something about fear that I’ve always been drawn to and find particularly thrilling. I was a voracious reader so I also poured through series like The Boxcar Children and The Babysitters Club. I still find myself very drawn to paranormal works; Deborah Harkness (whose All Souls Trilogy saved my sanity) and Chloe Neill are two of my favorites. When I’m in the mood for a good romance, my first choice is Corrine Michaels, her books Consolation and Conviction are two of my favorite novels ever.

"That moment made a huge impact in my life [...]"

When did you first know that you wanted to be a writer?
Looking back, it’s hard to believe there was ever a time when I didn’t want to be a writer, but there were a few major milestones that cemented my desire. As a kid, I wanted to spend all of my free time either at the library, curled up with a book, or outside living some kind of imaginary life (chasing convicts as a bounty hunter or tracking down ghosts, you know, normal kid hobbies). By the time I reached middle school, I was utterly convinced I’d spend my life lost in fiction and writing stories. Fortunately, my seventh grade English teacher took an interest in my talent, encouraging me to enter writing competitions and write stories for the younger students. At the end of the year, she gave me a writing journal inscribed with a long message telling me to never lose my love of writing and to never give it up, because one day I’d be the published author I dreamed of being. That moment made a huge impact in my life—one that still gets me emotional after all these years.
By college, however, life had taken a detour. I love learning and took every opportunity to explore all of the subjects that peaked my interest—Japanese, Geology, Linguistics, I could have studies forever, but I started running out of credit hours and finished up a degree in History. Followed by an MA in History, and along the way, I somehow forgot my love of fiction until the summer right before I graduated. A friend recommend that I pick up A Discovery of Witches, and reading the book was like being slammed in the face with a brick wall. Suddenly, I wasn’t sure how I’d ever walked away from fiction, and realized why I’d been struggling emotionally. With fiction back in my life and my desire to write at full throttle, I spent the next several months writing my first complete novel. And I never second guessed writing again.

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I don’t really remember my first story ever, but the early story that stick out the most is one I wrote in Third Grade about a teenage boy who somehow ended up dating a ghost and she tried to kill him because she was bitter about her own death. I guess things haven’t really changed much in my head. The story did, however, win me third place in our class writing competition.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "Incredible page turner! Within the first chapter I couldn't put it down. . .incredible story line with a novel plot. Not your typically medically mystery in the best sort of way. While it is filled with medical terminology to keep the individual in medicine intrigued, is crafted in such a way for the layperson to understand as well. Would highly recommend as a holiday gift. Cannot wait for the next book...well done!" - Lauren (Amazon)

- "From the very first page I was pulled into the story. The growing reality of global human organ trafficking seems to continue flowing just under the surface of mainstream media news. This piece of fiction brings it to the surface. The story wants to keep you locked in your seat." - Wanda Mahler

Jesse's life is all planned out. Graduate high school and head to art school in the city. His mother is gone, and his dad has just suffered a near fatal heart attack, leaving Jesse to fend for himself. Older brother, Jamie, could be Jesse's twin, but only in appearance. Jesse James as they're referred to couldn't anymore different on the inside.

Where Jesse is responsible, Jamie is a fly by night woman abusing man whore. Jesse's senior year of high school brings about a dramatic and delightful change in the form of a small blonde girl with big blue eyes. Jesse's never felt this way before, but fate sends him into a tailspin, and he'll spend the next few years trying not to follow in his brother's footsteps.

About the Book

Breaking Protocol (Lisa B. Kamps)
Click to Read an Excerpt
Dave Warren knows all about protocol. As a firefighter/paramedic, he has to. What he doesn't know is when his life became nothing more than routine, following the rules day in and day out. Has it always been that way, or was it a gradual change? Or did it have anything to do with his time spent overseas as a medic with the Army Reserves? He's not sure, but it's something he's learned to accept and live with—until a series of messages upsets his routine. And until one spitfire Flight Medic enters his life.

Carolann "CC" Covey has no patience for protocols. Yes, they're a necessary evil, a part of her job, but they don't rule her life. She can't let them—she knows life is for the living, a lesson learned the hard way overseas. Which is why her attraction to the serious and staid Dave Warren makes no sense. Is it just a case of "opposites attract", or is it something more? Will CC be able to teach him that sometimes rules need to be broken?

And when something sinister appears from Dave's past to threaten everything he's come to love, will he learn that Breaking Protocol may be the only way to save what's really important?

About the Book

Speechless (Nicole Edwards)
Click to Read an Excerpt
He’s suffering in silence...
Teague Carter, one of the four owners of Pier 70 Marina, has spent his life feeling rejected. To the point that he has never allowed himself to get close to anyone. He prefers it that way, in fact. But he refuses to believe that his destructive behavior might be something more than rebellion.

He’s unable to speak...
Hudson Ballard, Pier 70’s mechanic, has been fighting his attraction to Teague for years. He has stood by and watched the kid get more and more out of control, but this time is the last. If Teague wants to use sex to escape his problems, Hudson is certainly willing to be the one to show him that he’s good with more than just his hands.

Sometimes words aren’t necessary.
There are fireworks when this out-of-control bad boy agrees to no strings with this tatted up, dominating mechanic.

Can Teague and Hudson keep their emotions from getting involved in their arrangement?

Or -- thanks to the demons from their pasts -- will the darkness steal from them before they have a chance?
